I Can't Turn a "Blind Eye"
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Can’t Turn A Blind Eye Any Longer!


I can’t turn a “blind eye” any longer!

As many souls have “strayed off” and wandered!


I can’t “pretend,” that life’s problems will disappear!

The “sin problem,” is quite evident and clear!


I can’t “make believe,” this will be a better place…

I see heartache and despair on people’s face!


I can’t just “sit back” and not do anything anymore!

I ask myself, “what is my purpose in life really for?


I’m going to pray that God will make it more revealing…

We all need to know our purpose and meaning!


I’m going to ask God to help me make a difference today!

And proclaim that Jesus is the truth, the life, the only way!


I’m going to shout and proclaim Jesus!  The true king!

He’s the lord, master and maker of everything!


I’m going to pray that those who are blind, will now see…

This same Jesus who loves us, and gives life abundantly!


I’m going to not be ashamed, to praise the lord greatly!

It’s about time, that I lift up his name….  Lately!


I’m going to ask the Holy Spirit to cleanse my mind…

And help me to do my part in reaching mankind


I’m going to invite you, to make a commitment to HIM!

This same Jesus…  Who can change us within!


Please Lord Jesus…  Have your way in me!

All throughout!

Living and trusting you…  Is what life is about!

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!
