Here I Am, Lord Jesus!

Here I am, Lord Jesus!


For many years... My life has been

an embarrassment...

Filled with hopelessness, worry

 and discouragement.


So many things I thought I enjoyed...

Havet left in my life

 a large, empty void.


Many nights, I would

Have trouble trying to sleep...

Knowing the hole my life was in,

was very, very deep.


Then one day, I called out to God,

 not sure if he'd listen.

A relationship with him...

I was now missin'.


My family prayed for me for so many years.

I would often bring them

embarrassment and tears.


Please come into my heart

and cleanse me within!

Set me free from my troubles

and sin.


I know that you will never

 let go of my hand.

My whole life, on your word,

I shall now stand.


Only you can satisfy the emptiness in my soul.

For in you, I am now complete,

satisfied, and made whole!

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!
