Just To Know Jesus...

Just To Know Jesus...


"That I may know Christ and the

fellowship of his suffering."

Is scripture that, often,.

isn't comforting.


I've never really suffered,

 or tasted his bitter cup.

Many of the world's pleasures

have filled me up.


I don't know what it means

 to suffer for him.

I've been living with riches

and pleasures within.


I want to know what

it means to endure.

I need to live by his word,

which is pure.


In knowing him...  I’ll find

 life's meaning.

As his presence in me,

 becomes revealing.


I love him more that words

can express.

When it comes to his love,

 I won't settle for less.


He's given me hope deep

 within my being.

I am complete in him. 

He's my everything!


Thank you Jesus for the work

 in me that you'll do.

I can't help but to tell you Lord;

"I really love 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!
