I Only Need Jesus!

I Only Need Jesus!


I don’t need a book to tell me my life is “purpose driven!”

Al I need to know is that my sins are forgiven!


I don’t need a pastor to tell me “things will always be o.k.”

When I have a problem or need.  Jesus will make a way!


I don’t need to seek the wisdom of a “spiritual person.”

I need to read God’s word and learn it’s valuable lesson!


I don’t need to think of life’s problems and try to understand!

All that I really need to do is to hold my savior’s hand!


I don’t need to try to “pretend” someone I may not be!

All that I need is to find in Christ his will for me!


I don’t need to try to spend so much time in a day…

Without first taking the time with my Lord and pray!


I don’t need to find myself surrounded with “uncertainty.”

All I need to know is God’s peace and HIS security!


I don’t need to know what tomorrow may bring.

I can rest assured that Jesus will take care of everything!


I don’t need anyone or anything else than what Jesus gives!

He is with my each day that I breathe and live!


I need more of Jesus in everything that I say and do!

I need to tell him again; “Lord…  I LOVE YOU!”


I need more of his love, unfailing mercy and grace!

I need to focus on his majesty and the beauty of his face!


I need Jesus now…  More than I ever have before!

He’s given to me all that I need…

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!
