I Need to Live for God!

I Need to Live For God!


I need to live the way God intended for me.

Jesus came, that I may have life abundantly!


I need to focus and give God my attention.

And read his word daily for needed direction!


I need to admit to God my faults and sin.

And focus on what it means to be BORN AGAIN!


I need to live in God’s victory and not defeat!

It’s only through Jesus’ blood

 that I’m complete!


I need to tell others of God’s mercy and salvation.

And spread his good news

 all over this nation!


I need you Jesus!  Without you, I’m totally lost!

All I need, I can find at the foot of the cross!


Thank you my Lord, for helping me

 by your spirit!

It’s one thing to confess you… 

Another to live it!


May my life bring honor to the glory

 of your name!

And not get involved with what

 brings you shame!


Living for Jesus is the best thing

 I could ever do!

What he’s done for me,

he can always do FOR YOU!

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!
