These Three Words...

These Three Words…


I was thinking of something God

spoke to me the other day.

It was powerful and almost “took my breath away…”


These three words; “I love YOU!”  Were clearly spoken…

I didn’t know what to do.  I felt worn out and broken…


I cried and waited for something

 to change from within...

This “voice” I heard…  Would I hear it again???


I looked for a bible.  Any one I could find …

I had to seek an answer to settle my mind.


I opened up to the book of John and began reading…

I realized it was Jesus… That my life was needing.


I read the first few chapters including John 3:16.

About God’s love, which can make my heart clean


I was so thankful and joy came deep inside.

Bowing my head...  I wept and cried.


I was sorry for the many sins I had committed.

Jesus forgave me…  Now my sins were omitted!


I’m so thankful for the gift of life I received.

When I came to Jesus and simply believed!!!


I am drinking of the living water

 that never shall run dry.

God has promised that all of my needs.

  He shall supply!


Thanks be to God! Glory and praise

 I shall give him!

Won’t you give him a chance? 

He’s here to listen!


He alone can do what no other power could ever do!

The words he speaks to everyone are; “I LOVE YOU!”


Listen to his words…  It’s a heart-felt invitation…

You too can receive his mercy and salvation!

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!
