I’m Living For Jesus, Yes I Am!


Many have criticized the things I do.

I want to live as Christ wants me to.


But, no matter what I try to do an say.

It seems like a harsh word come my way.


If others don’t  likethe way I live.

Are they willing to love and forgive?


Do they ever pray for God’s very best?

They’re ungodly words create a “mess.”


It’s almost like they think “I’m a mistake.”

What God sees in me,

they don’t appreciate.


I’m choosing to live for Jesus

 the best I can.

Only God knows my heart and



I’m living for Jesus and that

which matters.

I know God is fed up with the

 gossip and chatter


If you don’t like me, than talk

 to MY BOSS.

He purchased my soul at a great cost.


I’m living for Jesus no matter

 what others do.

Perhaps it’s I who should

 pray for 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!
