The Reason I Am Here...

The Reason I Am Here...

Iím not here to represent a
building or a denomination.
Iím here to give the Lord my love
†and admiration.

Iím not here to get ďtied down
with wordly things.Ē
Iím here to represent Jesus!
†The King of Kings!

Iím not here to be filled with
gossip or slander.
But to serve a God, whoís
†power is grander!

Iím not here to live in worry and defeatÖ
But to allow God to make
†my life complete!

Iím not here to live with
stress and tension.
But to receive Godís peace
and satisfaction.

Iím not here to worry about what
tomorrow may bring.
But to serve a GodÖ†
Who can do ANYTHING!

Iím not here to live a life
†filled with sinÖ
But to enjoy Godís love
and peace within!

Iím here for just a brief
moment of time.
I want to serve God with
†my body, soul and mind.

The reason that I live and
the reason I am here...
Is to serve God with my heart,
before my life "disappears."

Ií've thought it over...
And have something to sayÖ
"I'm giving my life to Christ!"
"I'll do it today!"

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!
