God's Call on My Life
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

God's Call on My Life...

God's call on my life is what

I've been missin'.

Since that day he called me,

but I didn't listen.

For all the wicked ways I have lived.

He's been so patient and

willing to forgive.

I once loved him, his word

I held so dear.

I'm now living in bondage

and so much fear.

I remember reading about Jesus-his only son.

And how the battle for my soul

has already been won.

Look at me now! My life is such a big mess!

I've really put my family

through quite a test.

They've loved me and prayed for me all this time.

I have put them all on

to the battle line.

The battle line for my soul has been drawn.

Any happiness and joy in my

life is completlely gone.

So, Lord Jesus,

I kneel before your throne.

I ask you into my heart and into my home.

Help me now to listen to the master's call.

Knowing you now—is truly worth it all!

You're my beautiful Jesus

whom I love so much.

The hem of your garment is

what I seek to touch!

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!
