I Need to Be More Like Jesus!


Jesus…  May my faith increase in what I do.

As a way of expressing how I love you!


May my prayer time be time well spent.

A time of soul searching

 and a time to repent.


May my devotion to you

come from inside.

Help me to be humble

and not filled with pride.


Please take away the sins that will bind me.

I need your forgiveness to daily find me!


I ask your Holy Spirit

to give me correction.

I need his wisdom for needed direction.


I ask that your words will sink deep within.

Living your words will keep me from sin!


You’re so wonderful!

 I thank and praise you!

I don’t really know what I’d do without you!


Being more like you Jesus, is my goal.

It’s through your blood,  that I’m made whole!


Living more like you

is what’s needed!

It’s only in you that my life

 is completed!

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!
