It's Hard to Live a Godly Life!

It’s Hard to Live a Godly Life!


I need to live the way Jesus

 wants me to live.

All I have is a lowly

 and sinful life to give.


My soul is dying.  I need to

 live for HIM!

It’s difficult.  I don’t know

 where to begin!


A good place to start is on

 my knees in prayer!

He loves me so much

 and is ALWAYS there!


I give him a life filled with

stress and tension.

I’ll receive his mercy

and salvation!”


Thank you Lord for

 listening to my plea!

Thanks for your mercy on

 someone like me!


Jesus…  YOU give me hope to

 make it through the day!

By your love and washing

 my darkness away!

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!
