Will You Accept Me...Just as I Am?

Will You Accept Me?


Will you accept me? Just as I am?

I have a lot of problems

you may not understand.


I’m not perfect... I have a long way to go.

I sin sometimes...and does it show!


I’m probably not what you’d

expect a Christian to be.

Will you still love and accept someone like me?


I need someone to show me Christ’

love in a gentle way,

Not just in Church on Sunday—but every day.


I want to be more like Jesus...

believe me I do.

Will you show me how—

and not just sit in a pew?


I’m carrying a lot of problems,

beneath a heavy load.

I feel like the man who was beaten

on the Jericho road.


The priest... Levite... good Samaritan...

which one will you be?

To stop and care for someone such as me.


People like me surround you every day,

Please don’t just think of yourself

in a selfish way.


Allow Christ's love to break your heart so tenderly,

So you’ll begin to love people as lonely as me!

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!
