I Can't Please Jesus and People Too
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

I Can’t Please Jesus and People too!


Many times, other people

have put me down.

There’s times that I didn’t want others around.


I’ve tried to live for God, the best way I could.

But too often, I feel like I’m misunderstood!


It’s hard to please God and man.  I can’t do it!

I’ve tried doing this before, but I blew it!


I’ve found myself getting alone with God in prayer.

I know that he listens and will

always meet me there!


He’s given me a reason to hope and carry on.

Even when many others think I’m wrong.


I’m living for Jesus, no matter what others say.

I’m going to do my best, each and every day.


There’ll be times when I’ll stumble and fall.

But knowing Jesus is there, makes it worth it all!


“Take this world, but give me Jesus,” is my cry!

I want to live 100% for him, till the day I die!


I’m taking a stand for him, no matter the cost!

He told me that each day, I must take up the cross!


If God is for me, nothing else shall be against me!

I praise the Lord!  He is faithful and truly loves me!


Jesus is and shall forever be my guiding light!

It’s in him, not this world, that I take delight!

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!
