My Abundant Life

My Abundant Life

My blessedness is not due to
My circumstance or gift.
I do not need an easy life
To give my heart a lift.
I don’t need perfect health to have
Abundant life down here
I simply need to know God’s love
And know, to Him, I’m dear.
In poverty or pain or loss
I still can find such joy.
For God has given me great gifts
That nothing can destroy.
When pain or sorrow try to take
The joy inside my heart,
I turn my eyes to Jesus and
I know we’ll never part.
With God’s Word in my life, I know
That I have all I need.
To live a joy-filled life on earth.
For by the Son, I’m freed.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney

I am a 50+-year-old Christian, live in Indiana with my husband and 3 cats, and love Jesus. God has been giving me the ability to write incredible poems lately as well as the urge to share them. I pray they touch you as He intends.
