Confess... That You May Be Healed!

Confess…  That You May Be Healed!


I heard a preacher preach on a topic so very real

“Confess your sins to one another that you may be healed.”


This part of scripture...  It was very true and evident.

This is a truth of healing that’s still relevant.


The Bible speaks; “confession is good for the soul”

This is a part of scripture that’s good to know!


Why is this not happening as the days are getting “worse?”

While many in church struggle with sin’s “curse?”


I think it’s perhaps we have too many “busy-bodies.”

They seemed to focus their concern on “everybody.”


Rather than spending time with God and pray.

Many tend to seek the local “news of the day.”


We need people that are filled up and seek God’s Spirit.

So when someone needs some prayer.  They can give it!


We need followers of God! Not burdened down with sin!

People sold out to Jesus and truly born again!


Perhaps then, will confession among

God’s people take place.

Speaking to one another in humbleness and grace!


May the touch of God bring sweet comfort and joy.

It’s his healing ,that we have the opportunity to enjoy!


It’s coming together in Christ, where we belong!

Though we are weak…   HE remains strong!


He is faithful to do whatever we may think or ask…

Only HE can bring a healing that will always last!

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!
