The Joy That God Brings to MeÖ

God gives me strength
†and everlasting joy.
His words in my life,
I need to employ.

His joy brings strength
to my very soul,
giving comfort no matter
where I may go.

His joy gives a security,
this world canít give!
It is with me, every day I live.

In my God, I will take delight!
For he is with me
every day and night!

From the appearance of evil,
may I† abstain!
And live
in the joy of Jesusí
precious name!

In Jesus, my life is complete!

As I lay my burdens at his feet!

Over lifeís adversities,

Iíll rise above!

And rest in the joy

Of Godís abiding love!

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!
