When I Gave My Heart to Jesus...

When I Gave My Heart to Jesus…


When I gave my heart to Jesus...

 I told him; “I love YOU!”

I really didn't how to live,

 the way he wanted me to.


My life was messed up, and It needed

 to be put "back on track."

So I started reading my bible…

 from the front to the back.


Though I struggled with

 temptations and sin.

I realized that Jesus was wanting

 me to be more like HIM.


I was tired of "religion."

 I needed something real.

Now in my life, a true peace

 and joy I feel.


A life filled with defeat and despair,

 is now being transformed.

Living according to God's word...

 I am being conformed!


I haven't regretted the decision

I made back then.

Christ has fulfilled my life with love.

 I’m born again!


I'm here today, because of what

 Jesus did for me.

He has come and given

life abundantly!

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!
