I Want to Do God's Will!

I Want to Do God’s Will!


I wanted to do God’s will,

but clearly “blew it.”

The voice of Christ called,

before I knew it.


His voice called me to come and follow him.

There was something in life, to do for him!


Christ brought to me the gift of salvation.

He gave me a new life!  I was a NEW creation!


I was excited to do whatever he asked.

But this “enthusiasm” disappeared fast.


I was caught up in things of the moment

I forgot about my savior’s atonement.


He wanted me to obey his divine plan.

There were things I

didn’t understand.


I acknowledged how much I needed him.

He spoke to me and asked

that I’d trust him!


I want to do his will, and fulfill his mission.

And focus on doing this with a godly vision!


I‘ll tell others about Jesus!  The good news!

He brings life eternal!  We’ve nothing to lose!


Thank you my Lord, for helping me to see…

I need much more of you!

 And a lot LESS of me!

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!
