I Once Loved to Tell Others of Jesu
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Once Told Others Of Jesus!


I once told others of Jesus!

 As a young boy...

Witnessing for Christ,

Is what I enjoyed!


I told others of a time to repent...

I loved to talk about Jesus,

  wherever I went!


As the years went by,

And I grew old.

The things of God, I had no longer told.


A coldness in my life, began to brew.

Even God’s word… I no longer knew.


I only talked about God to

 people in the church.

In my heart, was a hunger

 for a new search.


A search to return to Jesus! My lost love!

I fell on my knees! And cried to God above.


 I began to confess, to God, everything!

A new love for him I knew he would bring.


I began to feel his love come all over me.

The chains were now gone! I was set free!


If a coldness for Jesus dwells in you.

Remember his love is faithful and true!


Please come to Jesus!

And be cleansed within!

And experience the joy of being born again!

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!
