The Life Christ Gave Me...

The Life Christ Gave Me…


There’s many things in life I tried to justify.

But nothing I’ve tried has really satisfied.


There’s been things I thought were fun to do.

But in the end, it was I who felt like a fool.


My “friends” promised me a dream fulfilled.

I was promised a new excitement and thrill.


The thrills were just a moment and were soon gone.

I then realized I was in a place where I didn’t belong.


I often wondered how could I get in such a mess?

Life was beginning to get me down and cause stress.


As I felt the enemies of life keep on “attacking.”

I knew there was something that I was lacking.


On the outside, everything looked “pretty good.”

But others didn’t know me, and misunderstood!


As discouraged seemed to be all around me…

There was a voice from heaven that “found me!”


This voice was from someone who I knew loved me.

He told me he was Jesus and he could help me!


I looked up with tears rolling down my face.

I asked Christ to come in and fill me with grace!


He reached down and brought a peace within!

I asked him to forgive me and take away my sin!


He restored my life!  And what the enemy took away!

I began to read his word and study it each day!


The life I have now, compared to where I was going…

Is filled with a satisfying love, that’s growing!


It’s all because of Jesus!  How much I love him!

I invite you to give him your life and TRUST him!

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!
