What God Has Done For Me... He Can

What God has Done For Me...
He Can Do For You!!!
I remember the day I became born again.
I had repented to
God of all my sin.
Many verses from scripture I had read.
Each night...  just before I went to bed.
At first, there was an excitement
 that began to rise.
People could see it, as they looked at my eyes.
I couldn't believe what was
 happening to me!
As the chains were broken... I was now FREE!
As the years went by...
 My heart grew cold.
What a mess I'd become... "A sight to behold."
I allowed sin to build and find a
"nesting place."
The sound of defeat could be seen on my face.
What would I do?  Where would I turn?
As the sin inside me began to burn.
I called out to God with
 a desparate prayer.
I cried out;  "God... Are you still there?"
He answeredl "I am here
and I patiently wait."
"Give me your life... Before it's too late!"
In a moment of time,
I reached out my hand.
I knew then he loved me and
would understand.
He restored to me the joy of his salvation.
And now in Christ... I have a sold foundation.
Old things have passed... 
All has become new!
What he's done for me...
He can certainly do for YOU!

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!
