Jesus Is Everything I Need!

Jesus Is Everything I Need!


During my lifetime,

 I’ve had many things.

But didn’t have the joy

 I thought they’d bring!


I‘d go to church

and sit in the pew…

The God the preacher talked about...

 I never knew!


Then one day, everything

was gone!

I thought to myself;

“where I belong?”


On the outside, others thought

 I was doing well.

I was empty inside... 

They couldn’t even tell!


I heard that Jesus and

was concerned.

I gave my life to him...

 It’s my turn!


Thank you Lord, for the love

that you supplied!

On that cross, for me, 

you were crucified!


Thank you for giving peace

and making me whole!

You’re all I need and  

restored my soul!

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!
