This Time, I'm Trusting Jesus!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

This Time, I’m Trusting Jesus!


Many times, I have trusted the Lord…

Even though many things in life I couldn’t afford.


Many times, I would run to Jesus in times of despair.

Looking for someone to listen.  Someone to care…


Many times, I would tell God, I’ll live for him…

Only to be “tripped up” by another sin.


Many times I’ve grumbled and complained…

 Bitterness and unhappiness have been “sustained…”


Many times, I tried to do my best.

Only to find myself, once again in a mess!


Many times, Jesus has been there to listen…

His blessings in my life, is what I’ve been missin’!


Many times, I’ve read God’s word throughout.

Scripture tells me that God is what life is all about!


Many times, I didn’t want to

answer when Jesus calls…

Yet my life seems to be “going over the waterfalls…”


This time… I’m going to let Christ “heal my wounded spirit ”

And accept mercy and love…  He’s willing to give it!


This time…  I need so much more of him,

 and a lot less of me.

For I once was so blind.  But now I can SEE!


This time…. I’ll allow Jesus to be the

 Lord of my life too…

And honestly tell him; “Dear Jesus…  I LOVE YOU!”


This time…  I will follow him and seek to do his will…

His joy and peace, in my life, he’ll fulfill!


This time… I‘m thankful for the decision I made.

There’s nothing in this world, 

for Christ,  I 'd ever trade!

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!
