Jesus Has Given Everything I Need!

Jesus Has Given Everything I Need!


Someone had whispered some words into my ear…

“What you have isn’t good enough!”  “Come over here!”


In front of me, where temptations of various kinds...

At first, it was almost overwhelming for my mind!


He promised something better, than what I  had…

He said that if I did what he wanted…  I’d be happy and glad!


I thought about how Jesus blessed the life I’m livin.’

The things I used to do…  And HIS power of forgivin.’!


Was I going to trade all of this, for a life of  sin?

Having a form of Godliness,

 but no freedom within?


Was I going to trade what God gave,

 for a ”pleasure of the moment?”

Was I about to make a mockery of Christ’ atonement?


I ran to the nearest room.  And bowed and cried…

For a brief moment, I felt rejected and despised!


Just then, I felt the Holy Spirit’s presence  around me!

And then, it was like the love of Jesus filled me!


This time, I knew that Jesus is all that I needed!

With HIM, I no longer have to be defeated!


Satan is a liar!  He’s one purpose and goal!

He wants nothing more, than to destroy my soul!


Take notice Satan!  This is what I proclaim!

Everything I’ll ever need!  I have in Jesus’ name!


The blessings from Jesus, has supplied my every need!

It’s an everlasting and abundant life, that I received!


Thank you Jesus! For giving what I need and more!

You are truly God’s son! 

And are worth living for!

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!
