Who Am I? Where Am I Going?

Who Am I?  Where Is My Life Going?


Who am I?  Where is my life going?

Have I turned the “wrong” direction? 

Without knowing?


It almost seems like yesterday

that I was a young man.

The adversities I faced...  I was

determined to withstand.


But as I’m growing older, and my body is achin.’

It seems like many of my goals in life

have been forsaken.


What have I accomplished during all of these years?

As the end of my life is drawing ever so near…


If I gained everything in this world.

But my soul is lost…

Have I done my best for God? 

Whatever the cost?


During these past few days, it’s becoming clear to me.

There is a God who really does love me!


I’ve started reading his word.  And have heard his voice.

It was he that first loved me.  I was HIS choice!


He has a plan for my life and one purpose in mind.

And shall always be with me…  

Till the end of time!


Whatever time I have left…

And each day that is spent…

I come to Jesus now and I humbly repent!


Whatever direction I am now

going is a blessing indeed.

For God now directs me

 and supplies my every need!


I don’t have to questions my goals,

ambitions or dreams.

I am enjoying a new life.  

That only Jesus brings!


Christ is my everything! 

The answer to my every prayer!

My life is now kept in HIS

 tender mercy and care!

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!
