If Jesus Wasn't Here, Where Would I

If Jesus Wasn’t Here, Where Would I Be?


If not for Jesus, where would I be?

I’d be as lost as a ship

wandering the sea.


If not for Jesus, and his amazing grace…

My life would be in a dangerous place!


If not for Jesus, There would be

 emptiness all around.

It would be as if everything

“came crashing down.”


If not for Jesus, being with me

each day…

I’d be lost and stumbling

to find my way.


If not for Jesus, who bled and died…

Only sin and darkness in my life

would be applied.


If not for Jesus, who took

 away my sin…

I’d never know the joy

 of being born again!


If not for Jesus,  I ‘d be alone.

I wouldn’t have his love in my home!


May this same Jesus help you

to clearly see…

How much he loves you and me!


Won’t you give him a place

in your heart?

His love can give you



Jesus’ love, joy and mercy

 will astound you!

It wasn’t me,

  but HIM that found you!

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!
