My Lord, you cast a loving glance my way
This morning while causing a smile to stay
And I found myself no longer lost in life
As your spirit lead me on a new path today

The life I knew would never be the same
Nor quite as confusing as it was before
When my life was affected by selfishness
Led astray by the sin sitting at my door

It seemed I was contented to be that way
As what seemed real success came easily
But my eyes were too blind to understand
How fleeting this worlds success can be

I thought I had everything I would need
Yet it was only a dream that would not last
All the material things I thought valuable
Would soon disappear from within my grasp

My Lord one special night you spoke to me
And I found my life would never be the same
Because I received a priceless gift of grace
That upon entering me made lasting change

I found taking the first step not to be easy
For I wanted to know In my heart I was sure
I would never seek to run from your calling
Or the gift found entering your open door

When I humbly bowed my head before you
Alone laying prostrate before your feet
I felt your energizing spiritual power
As your embracing love made me complete

I felt my selfishness as it was taken away
That worldly part who would always betray
And I found a new hope begin to blossom
As faith in my heart found a place to stay

My life now would no longer move in circles
Letting the lust for worldly wares to stay
For the moment I accepted your graceful offer
I knew to emulate your life was the only way

A genuine peace I found illuminates my soul
With a soothing happiness which lives within
Because I found a perfect treasure in you Lord
The moment your grace made new change begin.
With all the negative things happening in many
lives each day, many find they cannot change
by themselves…they are turning to the Lord
Jesus the perfecter of true lasting change
This poem is shared for those seeking peace
and spiritual bliss in their lives. This poem
was written January 1, 1977, amidst a time He
blessed me with His life-changing, grace, and
God Bless!
Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares
the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm
you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Deuteronomy 23:5
“A blessing for you, because the Lord your God
loves you.”

Lamentations 3:22-24.
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not
consumed, for his compassions never fail. They
are new every morning; great is your
faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘“The Lord is my
portion; therefore I will wait for him’”
