God Gives Second Chances!

God Gives Second Chances!

There's so much to do in life, and so little time to do it!
There's been goals in life...  But I simply "blew it!"

I think about what God has offered and what he's given!
I haven't allowed him to be the Lord of how I'm livin'!

He gave to me two great parents and food on the table!
He's given me the ability to work.  And to be able!

As I look back with the time that I've enjoyed.
I think about the time that I was unemployed!

They were times of leaning on God and his love!
I asked for his protection and blessings from above!

With the remaining time that I have here on earth...
I'm going to ask the Holy Spirit,
 to give me a "new birth."

A "new birth" to be the kind of person
God wants me to be!
And to ask for him to have his will,
 to be done through me!

I want to serve Jesus, for the rest
of my remaining days!
To read and study his word!  And do what it says!

The time I take to have with Jesus, is time well spent!
I seek to do his will for me,
and to daily be content!

Thank you my Lord for listening
 to what I have to say!
Please come Lord Jesus and
bless my time today!

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!
