I Need to Be Content With Jesus!

I Need To Be Content With Jesus!


When I know that "Godliness with

contentment is of great gain."

I will then have little reason to

 grumble and complain.


 I know that "perfect love

casts out all fear."

I know that God is with me 

and is always here.


 I know "the just shall live by faith

and not by sight."

With God on board...

Everything's will be alright.


 I know that the same Jesus

 calmed the storms of Galilee.

It's the same Jesus that’s

 living inside of me!


 I think of the many healed

 by the master's touch.

It helps me to realize that

 I need him very much!  


 I know that he has this

whole world in his hands.

I know that all of my problems,. 

he listens and understands!


I know of his redemptive

power and saving grace.

Very soon, I'll behold

 him face to face!


This same Jesus I know, 

you can know him too!

He waits at your heart's door, 

because he loves YOU!


Jesus can do what no other

 power can ever claim.

It all starts the moment

 you call on his name!

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!
