When I Heard the Voice of God...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

When I heard the Voice of God…


When God called me, 

I didn’t know what to expect!

The words he spoke to me, I won’t forget!


What he said, I remember so vividly.

He woke me up in the night unexpectedly!


When his voice awoke me, I “jumped out of bed.”

I wanted to hear what he said.


What he wanted, was for me to follow him!

I wanted to humbly obey and trust him!


He desired that I have a faithful heart!

He was there for me, 

right from the start!


My worldly possessions, I left behind!

A new treasure in Christ,  I did find!


Many of my old habits began to leave me…

I felt God’s awesome power all around me!


My thoughts and attentions were undivided.

Everything I needed... 

 God provided!


I chose to follow him 100 percent!

Fellowship with my savior,

is time well spent!


He’s my beloved and I am his!

He’s with me each day I live!


Won’t you beckon his spirit’s call?

Living for Jesus makes it worth it all!

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!
