Jesus, Please Take This Life Filled

Jesus, Please Take This Life,

 Filled With Disappointments…


My life has been getting very stressful…

It seems like everything I try is unsuccessful.


No matter my good intentions or how hard I try…

I fail again….  And get upset and cry!


It seems like all that I do or how hard I pray…

I wake up and don’t want to face another day!


There’s many who seem like they’re “blessed!”

But me?  My life is just one big huge MESS!


I often feel like a “blob” that fell to the ground.

When I need someone...  There’s no one to be found!


I feel worn out, discouraged and defeated.

Any sense of self-worth has been “deleted.”


Someone  told me of a savior who really cares…

If I need some help…  He’s always there!


All of my disappoints and failures to Jesus I give!

His love has now changed how I live!


He brought to my life a hope, I never had before!

He brought love, peace, and so much more!


He’s taken away all of my pain and sorrow…

And has promised to be there for me…  Tomorrow~


He took the word “failure” from a life that’s broken!

His powerful words of hope were clearly spoken!


I have hope, no matter what tomorrow may bring…

I know that Jesus is my righteousness and everything!


I find comfort in his arms so loving and strong!

He’s welcomed me and told me that I BELONG!


In Christ Jesus…  I’ve found the

 meaning of SUCCESS!

Now my life is no failure…

 But is abundantly blessed!

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!
