Come Follow Me...

Come Follow Me...

"Come follow me" was

the voice I heard.

As I began to read God's holy word.

I was anxious to receive

a heavenly invitation.

So I accepted the gift of salvation.

"Why me?" was the question

I had pondered.

So many "empty" years

I had wandered.

So I knelt down and invited

Jesus to come in,

he washed away my stains,

my darkest sin.

He's brought to me satisfaction

and love worth finding.

His joy in my heart is God's perfect timing.

I cry tears of joy I once never had.

I now have joy in my soul-

I am so glad!

Why not invite him in to your life as well.

He loves you much more

than words can tell!

"Come follow me" - hear the master's call.

Eternal life is freely offered to all.

He awaits for you each day and night.

He'll bring to your heart true delight.

You'll find a true love you

can only obtain,

by inviting him in-just call on his name!

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!
