Considering A New Identity?

Try Jesus!


Someone I knew believed

 he was most fortunate.

By living the kind of life

 he called; alternate.


He tried to talk me into choosing:

 this kind of life too.

I quoted him scripture...  He asked;

 "why not bend the rule?"


I couldn’t sin before my

God so blatant…

When it comes to his word, 

let’s not be complacent.


The lifestyle I have, is the best

life I could live.

It comes from God's grace

and his power to forgive!


If you want the most ultimate life,

 one could ever find...

It comes from following Jesus 

and leaving my sins behind!


The life you'll find in Christ. 

 brings a Godly abundance.

In his wondrous mercy, will your life

 have true substance!


There's no closet to come out of,

 when loving him.

It's a matter of leaving your old life... 

And being BORN AGAIN!


Allow Jesus to fill you with his

blessings beyond measure.

Only in him, will you find

 true meaning

and treasure

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!
