Lord, I've Had Many Empty Years!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Lord, I’ve Had Many “Empty Years.”


Jesus...  I've wasted my

 time on foolish things.

Not living a godly life,

 nor having the victory it brings.


How much of my time,

 with God, was actually spent?

I've never thought of what a

commitment to God meant.


I need to spend more time in

 God's word.  And in prayer.

Forgive me dear Lord…

 I didn't even care!


Even 10 minutes with Jesus

 is more than what I've given.

Living the Christian way,

is how I should be livin'!


 Jesus…  Take my life!

 I give you complete control.

By your precious blood,

 I’m made whole!


My time with you is so

 important to me!

In finding freedom in Christ, 

will I be FREE!

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!
