I Need to Daily Live for Jesus!

I Need to Daily Live For Jesus!


As I get older, the more I realize

how short life really is.

I don’t really know

how much longer I’ll live!


As of today, the most important

truth that I know...

Is a savior who's brought love

 and salvation to my soul.


Each day,  I think about

 what's important to me...

And the questions remains;

"where will I spend eternity?"


 Many I knew have

since passed away...

I hope to met them,

after my final day.


 I often think

 and begin to see....

Life is one

big uncertainty!


 It’s becomes more

 certain and revealing...

The return of Jesus! 

And his glorious appearing!


Today…  Is Jesus’ way 

of giving me another chance...

To allow him to my Lord, 

Over every circumstance!


I accept Jesus’ life!

And the joy of being forgiven...

 And enjoy each day,

 the life I’ve been given!

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!
