Help Me to Be Broken


Lord, help my spirit to be broken—

to you I must yield,

Give me a burden for the lost

 souls in the field.


Increase my burden Jesus—

so that others may know,

How much I love you Lord

with all my strength and soul.


Give me the words to say

 at the right time,

For I am yours oh Lord—

and you are mine.


Help me to love others the way

you want me to,

For only your love is pure,

 steadfast and so true.


In you… Jesus,

 may my joy abound,

To reach out to others…

So the lost may be found.


Thank you Jesus for speaking

 so clearly to me,

That those who were blind—

now they can see!!!

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!
