I'm Not the Same Person I Used toBe

I’m Not the Same Person I Used To Be!



 



 



Lord…  What is happening to me?



I’m not the “Christian”



 that I used to be…



 



The Holy Spirit used to speak



 through me with a conviction.



Now, my life’s entangled



 with a “deep addiction.”



 



I’ve gone to church…,



And want to “be free.”



But no one seems to



 pay attention to me…



 



What should I do Lord?



 I need a Godly direction.



I need your help and the right



 kind of correction…



 



I need to be the kind of



 Christian I once was…



 I come to you now… Jesus…



 Just because…



 



Because I worship you and



your majestic name!



With you in my life…



 Things won’t be the same!



 



You bring honor and love to



 this broken life of mine.



And your promises have



 stood the test of time!



 



Behold!  I am a new creation. 



Old things passed away!



As I invited Jesus to be



lord of my life today!



 



His word has renewed my mind



And  brought joy…  Like no other!



For Jesus is the same today...



  Tomorrow…  And forever!

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!
