I Need Jesus More and More!

I Need Jesus More and More!


It seems like the older I am,

with each passing day.

There’s someone I know

who passes away.


I remember as a child, 40 seemed to be old.

Now, it seems quite young. 

as I’ve been told.


This life I have is wonderful and God given.

He wants me to live for him,

each day I’m livin.


The older I am, the more that I begin to see…

I need much more of Jesus, and  less of me!


Whatever path in life that I might choose…

Without Jesus in control, I’m going to lose!


He’s the one I need to take control...

His word brings nourishment to my soul!


His word and commandments

 need to be obeyed.

There’s nothing for HIS LOVE

I would trade!


I thank you my lord, for the life I received.

An eternal life with you,

I want to achieve!


The older I am, the closer I get

to my mansion above

God’s blessed me and

given me eternal love!


One more day with Jesus

is sweeter than before!

No matter my age, I need him MORE!


He is and will always be with me

till the end of time.

I’m glad I’m his and he’s MINE!

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!
