I'm Not A Reverend Nor Have A Fancy
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

I ‘m Not a Reverend Nor Have A Fancy Title…


I’m not a reverend, nor have a “fancy title.”

But I serve and love the God of the Bible.


I’m probably not what you’d expect a Christian to be…

 I love Jesus.  And I know that he loves me!


I’m probably not someone you’d want to be with.

I’m the kind of person you may not want to be seen with!


I do have many faults, and am not sure how to “fit in.”

 I may not be the kind of person you’d call a “friend.”


If I’m such a bad person, why should Christ love me?

Are you sure that even HE wants to be with me?


Will he be someone to show me mercy and grace?

In his home in heaven… 

Do I have a place?


Will be ignore me as you try so hard to do?

Or will I hear the words; “I LOVE YOU?”


I’m going to focus on him with my mind.

At least he’ll give me some of his time!


I’m going to lay my every problem at his feet.

It’s only in him that I shall be complete!


He knows all about me…  Inside and out!

This is what his forgiveness is all about!


He wants to change me and take away my sin!

He cares so much and will always be my friend!


Thank you my Lord for caring when no one else did!

It’s only in you I have a new reason to LIVE!

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!
