That I May Know HIM!

That I May Know HIM...


 


"That I may know Christ and the


 fellowship of his suffering."


Is a verse that's not always


 the most comforting.


 


"I must suffer for Christ and


taste of the bitter cup."


An appetite for his holiness


must fill my life up!


 


I really don't know what it


means to suffer for him.


I've been living a life filled with


defeat and sin.


 


I want to know what it really


means to endure.


I must read his word which


is true and secure.


 


Only in you Lord... will I know


life's true meaning.


As your Spirit in my life becomes


more revealing.


 


I love you Jesus much more


than words could express


When it comes to your love...


 I won't settle for less!


 


You have given me hope


 deep within my being!


And have blessed me...


You're my everything!


 


Thank you for the work in me,


 I know you'll do.


I want you to know,..


How much I 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!
