Only Jesus Gives A Purpose and Hope

 Only Jesus Gives A Purpose And Hope!


I don’t need a book to tell me my life is purpose driven!

 I need to know is that my sins are forgiven!


I don’t need a pastor to tell me;

“everything will be o.k.”

When I have a problem or need,

Jesus will make a way!


I don’t need to seek the wisdom of a “spiritual person.”

I need to read God’s word and learn it’s life lesson!


I don’t need to think of life’s problems

and try to understand!

 I just need to do is to hold my savior’s hand!


I don’t want to “pretend” to be someone I may not be!

All that I need is to find in Christ his will for me!


I don’t need to try to spend so much time in a day…

Without first taking the time with my Lord and pray!


I don’t need to find myself surrounded with “uncertainty.”

All I need to know is God’s peace and HIS security!


I don’t want to know what tomorrow may bring.

I can rest assured that Jesus will take care of everything!


I don’t need anything other than what Jesus gives!

He’s with me and guides me each day I live!


I need more of Jesus in everything that I say and do!

I need to tell him…  “Lord…  I LOVE YOU!”


I need more of his love, unfailing mercy and grace!

I need to focus on his majesty

and the beauty of his face!


I need Jesus now! More than ever before!

He’s given to me all that I need

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!
