Will God Accept Me?


I had nothing to offer to God but a life of  shame.

I was embarrassed of the mention of my name


I had nothing to offer to God but “failure.”

I didn’t know if he listened to me prayer?


I had a life that was just falling apart.

I often cried from a wounded heart.


I began to blame myself for things going wrong.

I began to feel like I didn’t belong.


I’d begin each day with a lot of stress and tension.

I didn’t feel any kind of love or appreciation.


Many of my friends began to “leave me behind.”

There wasn’t a single “friend” I could find!


Just when everything was falling around me...

Jesus was there!  His love began to surround me!


“Lord, please help me!” Where the words spoken.

My life was coming apart!,   And was empty and broken!


Jesus reached down and took a hold of my hand!

And told me everything I went through...  He understands!


Day by day he brought to me a peace I never knew!

Putting my life back together was what he wanted to do!


As I read his word, his spirit renewed my mind.

A precious friend in HIM…  I was able to find!


He accepted me! And gave so much more!

He truly is what living my life is meant for!


He is and will always be the Lord for me!

And can do the same for you!  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!
