Am I Allowing God to Use Me???



 



 I met someone in a very difficult situation.



I kept walking and gave



 no explanation.



 



I was then asked a very



 personal question:



"I thought you said that



you're a Christian!"



 



I began to feel a conviction within my soul.



Which direction should I take? 



I didn't know.



 



Either keep walking, or stop



to help a person in need.



I suppose just this once...



I'd do a good deed.



 



I reached out to him and love



him in Jesus' name.



I told him that it was for his life



That Jesus came.



 



My heart was broken as I heard



all he went through.



I was speechless and didn't



 know what to do.



 



I decided to buy him a cup of coffee



and a sandwich as well.



I shared with him that Jesus loves



 him more than words can tell.



 



He thanked me and said,



"I'm so glad that you care."



I then was able to lead him



into a salvation prayer.



 



We talked more about God before



we went our own way.



I'll never forget what happened



that particular day.



 



It helped be to began to



realize and truly see...



How God wants so much to use



someone like me...

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!
