I Think about the Things I've Been

I Think About The Things I’ve been Through…


I think about the things that I’ve been through.

Many times not knowing what I was going to do..


I think about the journeys I began.

And the roads in between.

And think about the joys and trials

 life would bring…


I think about the many days and nights I have spent.

As I get older, I wonder where they all went?


As I think about my life and so much more.

I ask; “what is the meaning of life really meant for?


As I read scripture, I read about life’s meaning.

There’s a purpose and goal I’m not achieving.


I read about a God and found a new direction!

I need to give him my focus and all my attention!


All that I’ve accomplished… 

There’s something still missing!

It’s the voice of God.  I need to be listening!


He has a purpose for my life and a divine plan!

He’s given to me his word to help me understand!


I’ve made a decision.  This choice I’m going to make.

I’m giving my heart to Jesus!

 Before it’s too late!


My life is filed with joy and the past is forgotten!

All of my problems...  God reached out and “caught them!”


Jesus has given to me a meaning I never had!

I’m so thankful to him, and exceedingly GLAD!

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!
