I Wanted to Be with God Alone!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Wanted to Be Alone With God!


I wanted to be with God alone.

And ask for his blessing in my life and home!


I wanted to tell him how much I love him!

He listened!  I was happy to be with him!


It seems like yesterday when I was a young boy.

There were many things I wanted to enjoy!


I took time in prayer with my God and friend!

I felt his joy and peace deep within!


I didn’t realize how busy life would be…

I thought less of God.  And more of me!


I appreciate that I know a God who cares!

He’s never too busy for a moment to share!


He’s blessed and renewed my mind!

And is so patient, loving and kind!


Thank you Jesus, for the time we have together!

I’m looking forward to being with you forever!


You’re the one that I will daily seek!

I need your direction each day of the week!


All praise and honor to you, is what I give!

I’m blessed by your willingness to forgive!


You’ve blessed and strengthened my life today!

And have done more than words can say!


I’ll sing of your praises with pure delight!

By your grace, my life will be alright!

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!
