A Young Man Came To Jesus!

A Young Man Came To Jesus...


I know of a young man with struggles

 he could not contain.

Each day...  He continued a life

of guilt and shame...


Quite often... He attended the

church' youth meeting.

 Deep inside...  He was

"hurting and bleeding."


He didn't know whom to ask for help or prayer.

It seemed like everyone he talked to...

 Didn't really care...


Even the pastor had so many things occupying his mind.

Any kind of spiritual help

was difficult to find!


Each night...  Before bedtime.

  He laid awake and cried.

Crying out; "Lord Jesus...  

I've nowhere else to hide!"


He opened up a Bible. In search of an answer or two.

Seeking the truth..   Not knowing

what else to do...


Many nights on his knees. in prayer.  Had been spent.

He wanted to change...

And before God...  Repent!


The chains of darkness that

 had once held him down...

We're now being broken.!

 A new life  in Jesus he had found!


His desires changed...  As his love for

Jesus began to grow.

He soon discovered a peace and

satisfaction for his soul!


Today, he knows.. . This same Jesus

can change you throughout!

He can change anyone.  Both nside and out!!!


You can be a brand new person!

The past put away!t

Allow Christ to change your life! 

He can do it 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!
