Can't Make It Without Jesus!

I Can’t Make It Without Jesus!


There’s been many times, I didn’t think I’d make it.

The kind of life I was living.  I wanted to “take it.”


My life was empty…  I felt worn out and defeated.

It seemed everything I tried, was never completed.


Just when it seemed like my life was passing by.

I bowed my head in prayer, and began to cry.


It was a prayer from a heart of desperation.

I needed God’s help with my difficult situation.


I asked him to come and turn my life around.

Any kind of hope was nowhere to be found.


I prayed and cried out to Jesus for several days.

And began reading what his word had to say.


I read about him and his redemptive power.

I cried out to him for help, that very hour!


I soon felt a peace and hope from within.

I asked his forgiveness of my many sins!


He brought to my life true hope and meaning!

Hope and joy is what I’m now receiving!


May I encourage you to give him a chance?

He can change you NOW!  Whatever the circumstance!


He’s so wonderful, and is what life is about!

He brings a new life in, and throws the old one out!


Jesus is what we need!  He’ll never fail us!

He offers eternal life, because he loves us!


Behold the Lord God!  He brings mercy divine!

I am so glad that he’s a friend of mine!

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!
