Jesus Is What’s Important!


I’ve been spoiled with the

many things I’ve had.

I thought they’d make me happy,

but I am sad.

I went to church and

sat in a pew.

But Jesus—you—

I never really knew.

Everything I had,

is all gone.

Where Lord, in all of this,

did I go wrong?

On the outside, people thought

things were going well.

But I was empty inside...

couldn’t others tell?

Jesus... ou’re the only one

I have left to turn.

I don’t want to die in my

sin and forever burn.

Thank you Jesus, for now

I certainly know,

All that matters is Jesus...

all of my sins must GO!

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!
