Lord, I'm Tired of Playing Games!

Lord...  I'm Tired of Playing Games!
Lord...  For too long,
I've been playing games.
with a heavy load
 and a lot of pains.
My family and friends thought
 I was living so good.
But during all of this time
 they never understood.
So many people close to me,
 didn't even know.
That for so much of my life,
 I've been putting on a "show."
So many of the Christians,
 that I meet all around.
Don't know of the struggles,
when things are getting me "down."
I'm sick of this way of living
 that I have had.
If YOU will help me change.
 I'll be so glad!
It's you Jesus...  I'll never
be able to fool.
Over everything in my life... 
You must reign and rule!
I'll be so happy for giving me
a new chance to begin.
By accepting God's grace
and being changed within!
Time for playing games is over!. 
Today is a new start!
Because of Jesus...  I have a new
life and a new heart!

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!
