The Kind of Life Christ Wants Me to

The Kind Of Life Christ Wants Me to Live…


There’s a kind of life that Christ wants me to live.

I didn’t really have anything to offer or give.


All I had was a life that was torn and battered.

I got discouraged and wondered if any of it mattered.


Just then I felt a voice speak clearly to my heart.

I felt so much love, I didn’t know where to start.


I knew that it was God’s voice and I listened.

The life he offered, I didn’t want to be missin.’


Christ spoke words of love and peace to my soul.

He was close by my side.  I didn’t want him to go.


I decided to accept HIM!  And quickly believed.

The abundant life he offered, I soon received!


I’m thankful and blessed by the love he gave.

There’s nothing he gave me that I’d ever trade!


My eyes were blind…  Now I can see!

Christ changed my life and set me FREE!


Won’t you accept this life and his SALVATION?

This very day…  You can be a brand new creation!


The life Christ gave brings a new way of livin’!

An opportunity to be transformed and forgiven!


A new life can be yours! 

Old things passed away!

With Christ, this can be the start

of a glorious day!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
