Jesus Knows My Heart...

Jesus , Not A Pastor, Knows Our Heart!


A pastor said; “the state of the church is strong!”

I thought for a minute; “brother, you are so wrong.”


There’s many each Sunday walking through the door.

They leave the service not changed from before.


Many are still hanging onto many sins from the past.

They’ve not experienced a freedom in Jesus that lasts!


Many leave with the same addictions that pulls them down.

A repentant and humble heart is difficult to be found.


The pastor preaches sermons will one “fills in the lines.”

While most in the congregation live with polluted minds.


A powerful Holy Ghost service

seems to be from long ago…

As many seek something that’ll

“satisfy” their soul.”


Quality time in humbleness

and repentance is the key.

In helping us all to walk in joy and victory!


Only Christ alone knows the state and heart of the church.

it’s time we really read God’s word

 and begin to search.


Let’s search and study God’s word

 in humbleness and confess.

“Dear Jesus, I’ve been playing church,

 but my life is a mess!”


We need the help and deliverance of Christ

like never before.

In these last days of wickedness, we need Jesus MORE!


Let’s come before God’s throne in

humbleness and sorrow.

Let’s do it soon!  We may not be here tomorrow!

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!
