Give Everything to Jesus!

Give Everything to Jesus!
Jesus...  Do I know what it is
to suffer and to sacrifice?
I've had most anything
 I wanted that's "beautiful and nice."
I've been enjoying life each
day rather happily
With a beautiful home,
a new car and a family.
With all these things, who could
ask for more?

But to sacrifice for Jesus? 
Do I know what this is for?
Jesus told the rich man to sell
everything and give to the needy.
But, I've been "living for myself." 
And have rather been "greedy
The cross of Christ in me... 
Must have a daily effect.
Jesus gave his all for me. 
I must never forget.
I remember the cross.  The symbol of
suffering and shame.
I give everything to Jesus,
 in humbleness to his name!

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!
