Victory in Jesus...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Victory in Jesus...
Has your way of living been
"unbecoming of a Christian?"
Are you hanging on to things that
 could create a suspicion?
Are there chains that are still
 holding you down?
The victory you seek. 
you still haven't found.
Is there a habit that you just
can't seem to break.
You seek godliness... 
But suffer another heartache.
No matter how many good sermons
 you hear preached.
Victory over sin seems to be "out of reach."
Run and flee from every temptation
 that's holding you down.
Where there's sin.  God's grace does
much more abound.
God says: "Draw near to me and
I'll draw near unto you
Allow his word to teach how you live
and the things you do.
Hunger for HIS righteousness.
Then victory can be fulfilled.
Jesus will calm your storms
 and say "peace be still."
He alone can bring the victory
you desparetly seek.
And will give you power in your
life each day of the week.
He resists the proud. 
But gives grace to the humble.
And is there to pick you up
each time you stumble

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!
