Can God Use Me???

Can God Use Me?


 I met someone in a difficult situation.

I kept walking but offered

 no explanation.


I was asked a very

 direct question:

"I thought you said that

you're a Christian!"


I began to feel a conviction within my soul.

"Which direction should I take" 

I didn't know.


Either keep walking, or stop

to help this person in need.

"I suppose just this once...

I'll do a generous deed."


I reached out to him and love

him in Jesus' name.

And told him that it was for his life

that our savior came.


My heart was broken as I heard

all he had gone through.

I was speechless.  I reall didn't

 know what to do.


I decided to buy him a cup of coffee

and a sandwich as well.

And shared with him that Jesus loves

 him more than words can tell.


He thanked me and said,

"I'm so glad that you care."

I then was able to lead him

into a  salvation prayer.


We talked more about God before

we each went our own way.

But I'll never forget what happened

that particular day.


It helped be to began to

realize and truly see...

How God wants to use

someone like me!

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!
