Jesus Please Take Control

Jesus  Please Take Control



I’m alone now... And have

gone to bed.

Many sinful thoughts have

entered my head


I’m not sure which

 direction to turn.

My mind feels like a fire...

"ready to burn."


No matter how much time

I spend in prayer…

The many bad thoughts…

Are still there!


Many thoughts are

tempting and alluring!

Getting the help I need,

Hasn’t been reassuring!


I read that God’s word is as

A guiding light before me! 

I need it!  Before these thoughts

overwhelm me!


I ask you Lord Jesus; 

“Please take control of my mind!”

And help me to think on what

Is loving and kind!


May the presence of Jesus

fill my soul!

May he renew my mind and

make me whole!


As Jesus brings the victory,

My “old life” is defeated!

With him inside me…

I am completed!

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!
