I Surrender to Jesus!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

       I Surrender to Jesus!


          I have felt lonely and

           emptiness within..

          And have felt like I

           don’t have a friend.


          I have for years wanted

           a lot of things,

Never being fulfilled with

 what this brings.


Contentment and happiness

 I once thought I knew.

Have brought emptiness

 and a heart that’s blue.


I surrender my life to Jesus!

I decided to do this NOW!

I confess my sins to him

and humbly bow!


Jesus gives joy, hope and

 a new meaning!

In your arms of love and mercy

 I want to be leaning.


There’s nothing in my life HE

 doesn’t understand.

He is faithful, and won’t

 let go of my hand.


I want to bow my head and

 sincerely confess:

“Living for Jesus is

ALWAYS the best!”

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!
