Do You Want To Be Free? Try Jesus!

Do You Want To Be Free?  Try Jesus!


It's easy to get

discouraged and upset.

Being in bondage...  But you

can't escape just yet.


You've tried "everything."  and don't

 know what else to do.

Often wondering if there's anyone

who can help you through?


The things you've done, 

you asked God to forgive.

Yet struggle with this

 Each day you live.


You go to church and

put on a big "smile."

Yet wonder if living is

worth the while.


You have run for prayer time and time again.

And yet constantly struggle

with this habitual sin.


Many times when you've tried to 

call on Jesus' name.

Yet find yourself in another

 sea of guilt and shame.


Jesus is here now and wants you to know…

Everything in your life, 

you must completely let go.


Start today by not thinking of things

done in the past.

Come to Jesus now!  He'll give you

 true joy that will LAST!


There is another thing you must do. 

You really should!

Begin to think on things which

are wholesome and good!


Allow God to bring to your life

the needed victory now!

He'll make you a brand new person

 and HOW!

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!
