I Shall Testify of the Lord's Goodn
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Testify Of the Lord’s Goodness!


I think about the many things, Christ brought me through.

There were many times, I just didn’t know what to do.


I tried to read his word and still put my faith in him.

But there were doubts as to whether I could trust in him.


Then one day, it just seemed like the “bottom fell out.”

I learned what losing so much was really all about.


There were things in life that were important to me.

But my life began to fill with doubt and uncertainty.


I reached “rock bottom.”  About as far as one could go.

Where my life was heading…  I really didn’t seem to know.


Then one night I cried to God in a moment of desperation.

It seemed like my prayer life had encountered a “separation.”


I called on Jesus’ name and asked him for a Godly direction.

He touched my life by his power.  I felt like a new “resurrection.”


My life wasn’t the same the moment Jesus touched me!

He assured me by his word, how much he truly loves me!


He picked up the pieces of my life what were broken and shattered.

And put the things in my life that he knew really mattered!


He gave me a love, peace and joy that I had never known.

And brought his peace and comfort, to my heart and home.


I hereby testify of my Lord’s goodness and what he’s done!

All glory to God the father, the spirit and the son!


I bless you my Lord for your goodness and grace within me!

Wherever I go, I know that you’ll always be with me!


You’re so wonderful and beautiful!  I enjoy being with you!

I shall forever be thankful and will tell others of you!


You’re my savior, my lord, and soon coming king!

In you, I have a new life!  I have everything!

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!
