How I Need Jesus!

How I Need Jesus!


For many years, my life was

an embarrassment.

Filled with hopelessness, worry

 and discouragement.


There were many things,

 I thought I enjoyed.

Everything just left in me

 a large, empty void.


Many nights, I would

cry myself to sleep.

Knowing the hole” in my life,

was very deep.


Then one day, I called out to God!

 I wasnt sure if he'd listen.

My family, my old church,

I was now missin'.


My family prayed for me

 for so many years.

I would often bring them

embarrassment and tears.


Jesus… I tried everything else!

I want to come back to you!

I need  you now Jesus! I really do!


Please come into my heart

and cleanse me within...

Set me free from my addictions

and every sin.


I know that you will never

 let go of my hand.

My whole life, on your word,

I shall stand.


Only you can satisfy the emptiness in my soul.

For in you, Im made complete,

satisfied, and whole!

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!
