Jesus, Take Away the Things That Do

Jesus, Take Away the Things

That Don’t Belong!


Jesus, take away the things

that don’t belong.

I’ve been involved with things

I know are wrong!


Please forgive me of the

 sinful things I did.

They have no purpose in the way

 I should live!


I should live in a way that honors your name!

I shouldn’t be doing things that bring you shame!


Wash me clean, that my experience

your grace.

I need you to come that I may

 find a resting place!


In you, there’s rest and peace like no other!

You’re one who stays closer than a brother!


Thank you dear Lord for listening to me…

I want to know of your life ever abundantly!


You are the only one that I need this hour!

I want to, right now, experience your power!


I ask for your spirit to come and fill me,

Before life’s problems overwhelm me!


With you Jesus, my dark past is defeated!

My life with you, is 100% completed!

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!
