Jesus Called Me to Follow HIM!


"Come follow me" was the voice I heard.

As I began to hear Christ’ words!

I was humbled to receive a heavenly invitation.

 I accepted his wondrous gift of salvation!


"Why me?" was the question I pondered.

 For so many years… I had wandered.


 I knelt down and invited Jesus to come in,

He took away my guilt and my darkest sin!

He's brought a new life! And a love worth finding!

His joy in my heart is HIS perfect timing!


I cry tears of joy I once never had…

I now have peace inside! I’m so glad!


Why not invite him in to your life as well?

He loves you much more than words can tell!


"Come follow me!”  Is the master's call!

Eternal life is freely offered to all!

Jesus waits for you, each day and night!

He'll bring to your heart true delight!


You'll find a true love you can only obtain…

By inviting him in!  Just call on his name!

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!
