If You Were to Follow Me

If You Were to Follow Me…


 


If you were to follow me


24 hours a day,


would my lifestyle cause


you to wander and stray?


 


Would my way of living be


a stumbling block to you?


Would my commitment to Jesus


be loyal and true?


 


I hope that a Christ-like example


you would find,


Giving Jesus—not a little bit—


but all of my time!


 


I pray that in all of


my way of living,


you’d find a heart filled with joy,


love and giving!


 


May Jesus be my ultimate


thrill and treasure!


As he conforms me to his


own will and pleasure.


 


May a Christ-like life


in me be a certainty.


Not just today—


but throughout eternity!

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!
