Lord, I Stumbled and Fell!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Lord, I Stumbled and Fell!

Lord, I have stumbled and fallen once again!

By hanging on to a stubborn sin!

I once thought, “My life will never get off track,”

Until that one day after I committed

 such a sinful act.

No one’s watching me” was what I thought,

I didn’t now the pain and suffering,

 into my family, that I brought!

That moment of “pleasure,”

 I hoped would go away,

But sin stares me in the face, every day!

Pride crept into my once cheerful heart,

It’s now eating at me! Tearing me apart!

I once thought I was ”too good,”

 to commit a sin like this!

Many of God’s blessings, I now will miss.

To you Jesus…  My whole heart,

 I ask you to cleanse.

It’s in YOU!  That my life depends.

Create in me a clean heart!

 Renew a right spirit within me!

Your forgiveness in my life,

 is what others must see.

The most important thing,

 to God that I can give…

Is a broken and contrite heart,

 each day I live!

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!
