God's Will For My Life...

God's Will For My Life

 

God's will for my life is

what I've been missin.'

Since that day he called me.

 But I didn't listen.

 

For all the wicked ways

 I have lived.

He's been so patient and

 willing to forgive.

 

I once loved him.  His word

I held so dear.

I'm now living in bondage

and so much fear.

 

I remember reading about

 God's only son.

And how the battle for my soul

has already been won!

 

Look at me now!  My life is

such a big mess!

I've put my family through

 so much stress.

 

They've loved me and prayed

 for me all this time.

I have put them all on "the battle line."

 

The battle line for the soul

has been drawn.

Any happiness and joy

 in my life is gone.

 

So... Lord Jesus...  I kneel

before your throne,

I ask you into my heart

and my home.

 

Help me now to listen to your call.

Knowing you now...  Is worth it all!

 

You've so beautiful dear Jesus.

 I love you so much.

The hem of your garment is

 what I seek to touch!

Very nice poem Jim. I sure connect with this one - doing my will instead of His will most of my life. I now do His will to the best of my ability and will for as long as He gives me breath.

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!
