God Gave Me His Love! I Received

God Gave Me His Love!  I Received It!


God gave me love and joy!  I received it!

At first, it was hard for me to believe it!


The presence I felt, was almost overwhelming.

Tears of joy, on my face, were overflowing!


His presence kept me going for a long way out.

But over time, I forgot what my Lord was all about!


I became discouraged, felt defeated and really down!

I began to feel many distractions and fears all around!


The presence I once felt, didn’t seem to be there!

I became filled with stress, worry and despair!


I began doing things that I promised not to do.

I wasn’t the same person, that God once knew!


I reached a point, where my life hit rock bottom.

The God who loved me?  I simply “forgot” him!


About the time when I felt, I was at the end of life’s rope.

A sparkle of light inside of me, spoke words of hope.


Any hope in my life at this time?  I considered it “absurd.”

But then there was a gentle voice, that I clearly heard.


This voice spoke words of comfort, healing and love.

I then knew it had to be the voice of God above.


There were many nights that I lay awake and tormented.

I got on to my knees, and confessed, and repented!


God reached down and touched my life that very hour!

I could feel his presence, and life-changing power!


Jesus came inside and took away all of my sin!

And gave me a new life, and changed within!


He’s brought to me a conviction to really love him.

Whatever I face or go through, I need to trust him!

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!
