I Ask For God's Forgiveness!

I Ask For God’s Forgiveness!


I have a lot of sin!  There are many.

Is there hope for me?   Is there ANY?


I brought to my family a lot of shame.

I’m often embarrassed when

thet call my name.


Past failures and mistakes...  They abound!

They’ve a tendency to “pull me down.”


I’ve felt “unlovable” with a discouraged mind.

It seems like my life, “is racing against time.”


I heard that Jesus loves  

and can make me whole.

 How could someone like this love me?

I don’t know.


How could a God who’s  

merciful and lovable…

Find anything inside of me, 

that’s “valuable?”


I read in God’s word where Jesus

traded my life with his!

An abundant and eternal life, 

he freely gives!


  I ask you, Jesus, to come into

 my life and wash it clean.

I invite you to be my Lord, over everything!


I know that I’ve often stumbled and sinned!

I need your presence and peace within!


Only YOU can restore my life through

your gift of salvation.

I give you my heart...  And an open invitation!


Thank you Lord, for the work

 you’re going to do.

I want you to know how much I love

and need 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!
