Do You Love Me as Jesus Wants You?

Do You Love Me As Jesus Wants You?


If you loved me the way Christ does

What a blessing this would make!

Maybe...  I wouldn't feel

like my "life is a mistake"


If you listened to me, and

wasn't so "busy" all the time.

I'd find a friend.  Who’s

loving and kind.


The time we've spent together has

been little and far between.

Lately, I've done doing pretty good,

of messing up everything.


I ask you this once.  Will you

give me another chance?

And take time to pray that God will

 change my circumstance?


Your thoughts and actions speak

louder than words spoken.

May your heart yield to the

Holy Spirit and be broken.


Thank you for taking

the time to listen to me.

After all, we’re going to be together,

for all eternity!

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!
