I'll Reap What I Sow!

I’ll Reap What I Sow!


I’ve had many excuses for the way I’ve lived.

Many times, I expected God to forgive!


My life was filled with a lot of uncertainty.

I suppose I was trying to find a true security.


Though I often would God to forgive me…

There’d be another sin that would “trip” me.


I struggled at first, then wasn’t concerned.

I was expecting God’s grace at “every turn.”


The sins of the past would cause much shame.

There was no one else, by myself to blame.


I was sowing the consequences of the sin I’d sown.

And before I knew it, it crept into my home.


I got on my knees.  Before Jesus I confessed!

“How could my life turn into such a big mess?”


It was like I felt the presence of God around me.

It was like I felt his hand reach down and touch me.


I heard a voice speak to my life that same day.

And listened to what God really had to say.


He said he needed a life of commitment from me.

I needed not only forgiveness, but also to BE FREE!


I repented to God, and for the whole day I cried.

I really thought about why Jesus was crucified.


My life is different since Jesus took control.

I have a new peace and hope within my soul.


If godliness is sown…  An abundant life I’ll receive!

Through Christ, a new way of living can be achieved!


All glory to Jesus!  For his awesome loving power!

He’s changing my life!  Each passing hour!

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!
