Jesus I Give You My Faults And Fail
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Jesus, I Give You My Faults and Failures!


There’s things I done, that I’m ashamed to speak of.

I’ve had so many problems than I can think of!


I thought I was ok. Then something pulled me down.

And found so many temptations all around!


I tried to do what’s right!  Like a Christian should do.

But often wondered how I would make it through.


I was tired of pretending I was something I wanted to be.

I wanted to get rid of all this!  And be free!


My life was heading down the wrong path!  To a dead end!

I found myself in the same situation, all over again!


I come to you Jesus!  Will you please help me make it?

I’m tired of playing so many games,

 and trying to “fake it!”


I confess to you dear Lord, my faults, failures and sins!

I want to know what it means

to be cleansed within!


Ii want to know what it means to be free from the past!

And enjoy a true peace and love that will LAST!


I trust you my Lord with my life!  Now and forever!

I don’t want to be without you!  Now, or ever!


Everything Jesus gave to me,

was exactly what I needed!

With HIM as my Lord, my life

 is now 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!
