Won't You Let Jesus Pick You Up?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Won’t You let Jesus Pick You Up?


Is there a something that’s 

troubled your mind?

Perhaps it takes up all of your time…


Does this have your life consumed?

It’s almost like your life is “a cartoon?”


Perhaps this has “stolen” any

 sense of fulfillment.

It’s kind of like an addictive absorbent.


This thing is annoying.

 and “has you down.”

You’re not happy…  Emptiness all around!


There’s freedom that you really seek…

Even if it was for just one day of the week.


This thing you may wish

 you had the cure.

Deep down inside, you feel

 lonely and insecure?


This thing isn’t too big for our God to solve.

Why not invite him in?  Allow him to get involved?


This thing is what “doctor Jesus”

 specializes in.

The power to cleanse and make

your life WHOLE within!


This is something Jesus wishes to do…

Before you were born, he said; I LOVE YOU!”


Giving this to Jesus, you won’t

 regret you did..

As Christ alone can change

 the whole way you live!


His love and beauty...

He’s forever revealing!

Only He can give you a true

 purpose and meaning!

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!
