Jesus, Have Your Way In Me!

Jesus, Have You Way In My Life!


Jesus…  Please have your way, of all that I do!

I really don’t know who else to turn to!


Please take control of my sinful habits!

Everything In my life…  You can have it!


Please transform me into

 what you want me to be!

May others see more of you and less of me!


Please help me to share your inspiring word.

Especially to those who’ve never heard!


Please have you way in the way I’ve been thinking.

My life is like a ship that’s been sinking!


Please have you will in the direction I take!

I want to do what you want!  And not be late!


Thank you for hearing my heart’s prayer!

I know that you listen.  And you care!


Thank you for being my everlasting friend.

And for being there for me…  Once again!

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!
