I Need to Be Christ's Example!

I Need to Be Christ’ Example!


I haven’t been Christ’ example like I should have.

And haven’t walked in victory like I could have.


I wanted to settle for less than what Christ gave.

But lately, have submitted to being sin’s slave.


There have been many things I tried before.

Jesus offered his abundant love and much more!


I almost came to the point of “throwing it away.”

But then decided to take the time to pray.


I confessed my sin and backward ways.

And decided to hear what Jesus had to say.


Christ spoke of a cleansing, ever so sweet!

Through his blood, my life is now complete!


Help me Jesus to be careful and daily listen…

To the life you want for me and your daily mission!


May this flesh of mine be crucified as I daily live.

May I not to settle for less,

than what you freely give!


You, dear Lord, picked me up, when I was down.

Where sin was, your grace did

much more abound!


I’m thankful for this new life that was decided!

Everything I need, Jesus has already provided!

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!
