Just the Other Day...

 Just the Other Day...

 I was thinking about something
 just the other day.
 I was at a loss for the
 "right words to say."

 I was thinking about a time
 "way back when."
 That day I became born again.
A zeal for Jesus that
 I once had.
 Excitement in my life,
 a heart so glad.

 A passion for Christ
 overwhelmed my soul.
 I loved Jesus-for he had
 made me whole.

 I've forgotten things that
 I once knew.
 Reading God's word-
 I no longer do.

 What has happened to me?
 I'm so ashamed!
 I'm an embarrassment to
 Jesus' holy name.

 So, dear Jesus, my knees
 I humbly bow.
 Please change my life-
 I need you now!

 By your word, transform
 me deep within.
 I confess to you my backsliding sin.

 I re-commit my life NOW-Yes I do!
 And by your love, I'm made

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!
