I Know YOU Can Turn My Life Around!


So often I have tried to

 believe in Jesus’ name…

Many times, I have brought

 him so much shame.


Now matter how much I try…

 I fall and stumble

The uncertainties of life have

 caused me to grumble.


Why, Oh Lord, does this keep

 happening most every day?

I’m almost at a lost for

 the right words to say…


I can almost see Jesus with

 his arms extended.

My heart needs to be repaired and mended…


I come to you Jesus, with a life

 “turned upside down…”

Asking you to forgive me and to

 “turn things around…”


I know that your love can

 make me complete.

I can feel your presence...

 From my head to my feet.


I thank you!  My Lord and my God!

Your love shines brighter

than a lightning rod!


I know that I can give you all of my trust.

Living for you each day.  I know that I must!


Giving my life for yours is my Godly duty

As I worship your majesty and beauty!


You have planned my life

 according to your design!

And have given me joy

 and a Godly peace of mind!

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!
