God Gave Me His Best!

God Gave Me His Best!



God gave me his best!  He gave me his son!

What have I given to him?  What have I done?


He gave me his best, when it really mattered!

His son was crucified, whipped and battered!


He gave me his best, on Golgotha's hill

This is what he wanted.  This was his will!


He gave me his best! I had nothing to give!

He is so patient, and willing to forgive!


He gave me his best, when I was at my lowest!

In spite of our sin, he really wants to know us!


He gave me his best!  Have I done the same?

I'm afraid I have to bow my head in shame.


I haven't given him my best.  I haven't  even tried!

I have repented to him and have often cried!


I'm going to start today...  Right in my home!

I know he'll help me...  I am never alone!


I I hope to do my best, with my heart and mind!

I give Jesus all that I have! Including my time!


Jesus the best thing, that ever happened to me!

How I long to be with him! For all eternity!!!

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!
