I'm Not Here to Please Man, But God
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I’m Not Here to Please Man,  But Christ!


I’m probably not the kind of person you’d expect to see.

I have a lot of faults and sin deep inside of me.


Maybe I’m not the kind of

 “Christian” you expected.

If I came to your church,

would I be rejected?


I’m likely not someone you’d invite over for dinner.

Perhaps I’m just “loser.”

Never a “winner…”


Am I the kind of person that you would call a “friend.”

I’ve so many troubles…  I don’t know where to begin.


I may not be any of these things. 

And much more!

Not the kind of person you’d

 allow through your door.


I was told there is someone

who is there for me…

Someone who gives his love

 and mercy abundantly.


I heard that if I come to him,

and give him my heart.

He’ll change my life completely. 

And give a NEW start!


I was told that no matter my faults

 in this life I live.

The son of God has the power to FORGIVE!


Jesus is the one that I really need right now!

I confess my every sin to him. 

And humbly bow…


I come to you my lord and worship your name!

I’m so glad you’re here right now! 

And glad you came!

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!
