God Has Given Me Time to Serve Him!

God Has Given Me Time to Serve Him!

There's a lot to do in life,

but little time to do it!
There's been goals in life, but I blew it!

I think about what God has offered

and what he's given!
I haven't served him with the days I'm livin'!

He gave to me parents and food on the table!
He's given me the ability to work and to be able!

As I look back on the time that I've enjoyed.
I think about the time I was unemployed!

They were times of leaning on God and his love!
I asked for his protection

and blessings from above!

With the remaining time that I have on earth...
I'm going to ask the Holy Spirit,
 to give me a new birth.

A new birth to be the kind of person
HE wants me to be!
I want to ask for him to have his will,
 being done in me!

I want to serve Jesus, the rest
of my remaining days!
To read and study his word

 and do what it says!

I want my time with Jesus,

 to be time well spent!
I seek to do his will for me
and to be content!

Thank you my Lord for listening
 to what I have to say!
Please come Lord Jesus and
bless my time today!

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!
