THE DIFFERENCE
(Now that I know Jesus)

Jesus,
Has made the difference in my life.
I love Him,
Whom Iíve never seen;
And my love is real;
My love is true,
I thank God, my Father,
For His deliverance Ė
For, by Jesus, His Son,
He has brought me through.

Godís Spirit
Walks me through His Holy Word,
So that I can see -
The many ways,
Throughout my life,
His heavenly grace has covered me.
His legions of angels all around -
Helped me through dangers,
Seen and unseen,
Bringing me forth Ė
From darkness to light,
On and on -
Into pastures green.

And, I thank Him so much,
For the gentle way,
By His Spirit,
He pours into my life;
As He leads me by the hand,
That I might be able
To walk with Him
Regardless of what besets
As I journey through this land.

Now, I can hardly read Godís Word
And not search myself within,
As I see Jesus -
All that He endured;
His life, while here on earth,
Because God, His Father,
Ordained
That He would have a human birth.

Temptations abounded -
From without and within
Hurt, pain, betrayal,
From His, chosen, circle of friends.
The difference Ė
Still, He had no sin.
He had none, while I have many;
But, I have come to know,
That the blood He shed cleanses -
Washes my sin away;
And, each time it appears
As if I never had any.

I have all these things
Stored in my heart;
Godís Spirit helps me keep them alive.
For I now see Jesus,
My Savior,
With both heart and mind
I know that Iíll never
Be the same again
Not, like I was before -
Continuing to grow,
Enabled, by His Spirit,
To understand -
My precious Lordís journey,
Here, as a man.

This is a lovely praise poem and it really touched my heart. Jesus can definitely change lives.

The biggest weakness I see in your lovely piece is that you really missed the topic, I saw a bit of a search in it but no trace of an internet log.

You have a wonderful sense of rhythm and your words flow effortlessly. This is a beautiful and thought- provoking piece.

Nice poem...I enjoyed the read...a little off topic...God bless you in your writing...

A beautiful poem, and so true, Praise the Lord, our Savior.

I am thinking you "were showing an actual blog" without mentioning the subject. I think it was a good way of sharing a powerful message, while blogging and staying on topic.

Thank you. God Bless~

Beautiful poem, but I do not make a connection to blog.

Obviously very heart felt prose. Thanks for sharing.

This is a beautiful, heartfelt poem, but I too had a hard time finding the topic in it. I suppose it could be part of a blog, but if so you need to make that clear.
