It Seems Like Yesterday...

It Seems Like Yesterday…


 I look back and think about where I’ve been.

It’s hard to believe I’m still here again!


I think about the many things

 I’ve been through.

I ask myself;

“What am I going to do?”


With the trials of life,

there’s many frustrations.

A life filled with uncertainty

and complications.


It’s like riding the waves of life’s stormy sea.

Never knowing where the next wave will take me!


Everything I have and all I’ve done…

I lay at the feet of Jesus,

 God’s precious son!


I ask the Lord for mercy and come to him now!

I come before his majesty and humbly bow!


Jesus brought completion

and wholeness within!

He’s given me a new life. 

I’m born again!


I love and thank the Lord,

for his hand extended!

The beauty of his holiness is to be commended!


Jesus brought to me hope,

 in a hopeless situation!

He’s given to me

the gift of salvation!

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!
