I Want to Be More Like HIM...
"That I may know Christ and the
fellowship of his suffering."
Is scripture that... At times...
Isn't very "comforting."
I've never really :suffered"
 or tasted his "bitter cup."
Many of the world's pleasures
have "filled my life up."
I don't know what it means
 to suffer for him.
I've been living a life of riches
and pleasures within.
I want to know what
it means to endure.
I need to live by his word which is secure.
In knowing him... Will I find
 life's true meaning.
As his presence in me
 becomes more revealing.
I love him more than words
could ever express.
When it comes to his love.
 I won't settle for less.
He's given me hope deep
 within my being.
I am complete in him. 
He's my everything!
Thank you Jesus for the work
 in me that you'll do.
I can't help but to tell you Lord;
"I really love 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!
