Jesus, Please Take the "Junk In My
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Jesus, Please Take the “Junk In My Trunk.”


In my life, I allowed a lot of “junk in the trunk.”

There was so much, that my life STUNK!


There were many things I collected along the way.

They just seemed to hang around me every day.


Some of the junk was old, and some was new.

I was at a loss as to what I was going to do.


As my life began to take a downward turn…

This was the moment I became concerned.


I came to the decision; “this junk has to go!”

My life needed to be cleansed and made whole!


I know my life was burdened, and “bottomed out.”

I needed to be cleansed, from the inside out!


I cried out to Jesus; “please take the junk of mine.”

“It’s ruining my life and destroying my mind!”


Jesus reached out and did a beautiful work within.

By his power, he removed all of my junk and sin!


Praise the Lord!  He began a beautiful work in me!

The load of junk is gone!  I’ve been set FREE!


He can do the same for you!  Won’t you let him?

Won’t you give him your life

 and simply trust him?


You too can be forever changed by his power?

He can remove all of your junk,

this very hour!

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!
