When God Called Me...

When God Called Me…


When God called me… 

I didn’t know what to expect!

The words he spoke to my heart.  I won’t forget!


What God said to me….  I remember so vividly.

It woke me up in the night so unexpectedly!


When God awoke me.  I “jumped out of bed.”

I wanted to hear what his spirit said.


What God wanted for me…  Was to follow him!

I wanted to obey and trust him as my friend!


What God desired was to have a faithful heart!

He was there for me… 

Right from the start!


My wordly possessions…  I left behind!

A new treasure in Christ…  I did find!


Many of my “past habits” begin to leave me…

As I felt God’s awesome love all around me!


My thoughts and attentions were decided.

Everything I need... 

My God provided!


I’ve chosen to follow him 100 percent!

Fellowship with my creator,

is time well spent!


He is my beloved and I am his!

For he is with each day that I live!


Won’t you too beckon his mercy and call?

Living for Jesus makes it worth it all!

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!
