I'll Never Be the President...

I'll Never Be The President...

I have no intentions to be the president...
This world is not my eternal residence!


I Have no intentions to live in a cathedral..
Nor to engage in what's merely "procedural."

I have no intentions of getting too "political..."
I don't want to be too "hypocritical."

I have no intentions of being "famous" or "admired."
This is not my ambition, nor my desire!

My intentions I hope are pretty clear...
To follow Jesus...  Whom I love so dear!

My intention is do my very best...
To live for Christ.  I am so blessed!

My intention is to focus on this one goal…

To seek after God with all of my soul!

My intentions need to be fixed and directed.
Following God's word, as I'm daily "corrected."

My intention is to focus on Christ with my mind!
And to give him my life and my time!

Christ' intentions is to be my Lord and friend.
And to cleanse me from the darkness within!

Christ intends to always be faithful and true!
He's always there for ME and for YOU!

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!
