Trusting Jesus for the Right Mate
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Trusting Jesus for
 the Right Mate...
Dear Jesus.  Help me to
trust you and wait.
That in time.  You'll bring me
 the right mate.
Someday, I desire to have
a family and a house.
But I'm confused when it comes
to choosing a spouse.
When this is going to happen?
 I do not know.
Teach me patience Lord.
 I need it so!
Help me to choose someone.
 I don't trust my flesh.
If I do... I could really end
 up in a "big mess."
Take control of my thoughts
and what I want to say.
Conforming me to Jesus. 
In a more Christ'like way.
Till that special day.  When I'll wed
 and say "I do."
Help me Jesus to find a mate
who's in love with 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!
