I Need to Focus And Listen to Jesus

I Need to focus And Listen to Jesus!


During my life, I’ve listened to many voices.

There’s been many offers and choices.


There are those who tell me what to do..

I just never know what everyone’s up to.


But there’s a voice that matters dearly.

It’s the voice that speaks rather clearly!


It’s a still small voice that calls my name.

It’s different from the others.  It’s not the same!


It’s a voice that rings loud and very clear.

It lets me know that Jesus is near!


It’s a voice that speaks of peace so gently.

It reassures me of God’s love evidently.


This voice made a difference like no other.

It’s words are sweeter than the purest butter!


It’s the voice of Jesus that makes all the difference!

And has given to me a life-changing experience!


As I grow old, and the years go by faster…

I’ll take the time and listen to

 my Lord and master!


Won’t you take time and listen to his voice?

And allow God’s words to be your first choice?


His voice can bring peace to life’s raging storms…

Your life can be 100% transformed!


His voice can make a difference in your life today!

Al you have to do is, listen, trust and obey!

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!
