Are You Victorious In Jesus?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Are You Victorious In Jesus?


Has your way of living been

that of a Christian?"

Are you hanging on to things that

  create a suspicion?


Are there chains that are

 holding you down?

The victory you seek. 

 hasn't been found?


Is there a habit that you  

can't seem to break.

You seek godliness, 

but suffer another heartache.


No matter how many good sermons

 you hear preached.

Victory over sin seems to be "out of reach."


Run and flee from every temptation

  holding you down.

Where there's sin...  God's grace does

much more abound.


God says: "Draw near to me and

I'll draw near unto you."

Allow his word to teach how you live

and the things you do.


Hunger for HIS righteousness.

Then victory can be fulfilled.

Jesus will calm your storms and say "peace be still."


He alone can bring the victory

you now seek.

He’ll give you power in your

life when you are weak.


He resists the proud,. 

but gives grace to the humble.

He’s there to pick you up

each time you stumble.

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!
