I Want To Obey You Jesus!

Jesus, Help Me To Obey You!


Lord, help me to obey your

 words spoken.

May my life yield to you,

 and be broken!


Lord, help me to understand

and clearly see.

I need so much more of you,

 and a lot less of me!


Lord, help me in spite of my faults and all.

When I need someone,

 to give you “a call.”


Lord, help me to give all that I have to you!

May I learn to give my

trust in all that I do!


Lord, help me to preach

your word and live it!

As I need to be replenished

 and filled with your spirit!


Lord, help me in my journeys

and wherever I go…

Please give the strength I need

for my weary soul!


Lord, help me to depend on you,

whatever life may bring!

In your arms of mercy, may I always cling!


Lord, help me to read your

word and obey it!

I love you sweet Jesus!

 I’m not ashamed to say it!

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!
