Jesus Helps Me To Obey Him

There’s things Jesus doesn’t want me to do.

His word gives directions for me to follow through.


I need to obey his instructions and simply do it.

There’s many times when I didn’t and “blew it.”


But Christ is there to pick me up with his hand.

He’s so loving, patient and willing to understand.


My heart is willing but I still fall from his grace.

At times, it seems I “stumble all over the place.”


Today I make a new commitment and ambition.

Today I surrender to Jesus my will In addition.


I will do my best to obey him, no matter the cost.

I will do all that I can to focus on the cross!


Today is a new start and beginning for me!

Through Christ, I will enjoy his life abundantly!

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!
