You Don't Have to Live...

You Don’t Have to Live…  Like You Did Before!


You don’t have to live…

 Like you did before!

I can give you my love…

 And so much more!


You don’t have to keep on

 “bringing up the past…”

I will give you a peace and joy

 that will forever last!”


The chains you once had…

 No longer have to hold you down.

I will pick you up and plant you

 on a solid ground!


You don’t have to live the way

 that you once lived…

An abundance of forgiveness and mercy

 is what I freely give!


You no longer have to live a life

 that is filled with fear…

I will always be your best friend.

 I am always here!


You can come to me for a love

that is worth finding…

My promises are forever. 

You need no reminding!


You can be a new creation.

 Old things passed away.

I am that I am.  And I can change

 your life TODAY!


I am Jesus...  Your provider...

 The all-sufficient one!

My arms are wide open for you…

 Won’t you come???

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!
