May My Life Please Jesus!

May My Life Please Jesus!


  The more I realize

how short life really is.

The older I get...  The more I know

 there's a God who lives.


   The most important

truth that I know...

Is a savior who's brought health

 and salvation to my soul.


   I think about

 what's important to me...

And the questions remains;

"where will I spend eternity?"


   Many I knew have

since passed away...

So I want to live for God

until my final day.


   I often think

 and begin to see....

I need more of Jesus 

and less of me!


.   It has become more

 evident and revealing...

The return of the Lord. 

and his glorious appearing!


Each day is God's way 

of giving me another chance...

To allow him to be Lord... 

Over every circumstance!


Today is another day

to enjoy being forgiven...

 Jesus is with me each day

 I've been livin.'!

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!
