The Day I Gave My Life to Jesus...

The Day I Gave My Life to Jesus...

I was thinking about something
 the other day.
I was looking for the
"right words to say."

I was thinking about a time
I was filled with sin.
That day I became born again.

A passion for Jesus that
I once had.
Excitement in my life,
and a heart so glad.

A love for Christ
overwhelmed my soul.
I loved Jesus-for he had
made me whole.

I don’t know the Lord
I once knew.
Reading God's word,
I no longer do.

What has happened to me?
I'm so ashamed!
I'm an embarrassment to
Jesus' holy name.


So, dear Jesus, my knees
I humbly bow.
Please change my life!
I need you now!


By your word, transform
me deep within.
I confess to you my backsliding sin.

I re-commit my life NOW! Yes I do!
And by your love, I'm made
BRAND NEW!

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!
