May It Be My Desire to Follow Jesus

       May It Be My Desire to Follow Jesus!



Lord, may it be my daily passion

 and desire,


To follow you, and to lift your

 name up higher!


May follow your footsteps,

with a deep passion!


May you fill me with your love

 and compassion!


You bought me with a price!

I’m not my own!


YOU are the invited guest in my heart

and home.


By your word, my mind will be

 daily renewed,


Throughout my whole being… 

Both digested and chewed!


In my heart, may an example of you,

be what shines!



 has stood the test of time!

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!
