Jesus... Today, I Give You My Life

Jesus...  Today, I Give You My Life!

 

Jesus... I've been living in

defeat and desperation.

My life wrestles with doubt,

fear and tension.

 

 For so long... I've cried to

 you for peace and joy.

Desiring the kind life

I would really enjoy.

 

I'm tired of only giving to

you just "50 percent."

A lot of my time has

been wastefully spent.

 

Take my life now,

 And total control.

Renew my mind...

And make me whole!

 

Thank you Lord, for changing

my life throughout...

And Helping me to know what

 being a Christian

 is all about!

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!
