Jesus, I Want to Be Close to You!

Dear Jesus, please hold me close to you!
May it be my desire to
really know you!

Jesus, may it be my
 passion and desire,,,
To daily lift your name up higher!

Jesus, please may it always be so...
That I will share your love wherever I go!

Jesus, I ask you to make it evident...

I want you presence in me,

to be permanent!

Jesus, much thanks
and praise is given!
You've taken away my sin!
 I’m forgiven!

Jesus, without you, all is hopeless!
My life without you
 is emptiness!

Jesus, I offer my life and freely give it!
I want to follow
your Holy Spirit!

Jesus, I give praise and adore you!
I humbly come and kneel
before you!

You’re my Lord and God!
You rule over everything!
You're my wonderful savior,
 who can do anything!

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!
