About the Poem

At one time, I was depressed because I did not have a man in my life, but then I realized that there was a man in my life . . . and He's been there all along.

The Man In My Life

He knows that I'm not perfect, nor does he expect me to be.
He forgives me when I ask him, for the man in my life loves me.
He's no man like any other, no one could ever compare.
I'll never know another love like the love this man and I share.

This love is pure and sacred, no one can take that away.
He'll always be my protector, he watches over me night and day.
This man was put to death, so that I might be free.
How can I ever repay him, for dying on the cross for me?

I'll start by saying a prayer and asking forgiveness when I roam.
Then I'll reach my arms out to him, when he comes to take me home.
It's a trip that'll be worth taking and many others will also be there.
We'll laugh and sing and celebrate, in honor of the joy we'll share.

Though my life has not been easy, there has been trouble and strife.
But I thank Jesus for walking beside me, and for being the man in my life.

I'm a 16 year old teenage girl and my parents have been divorced since i was 2. I've watched my mom go through boyfriend after boyfriend and it upset me for a long time. i knew that she was not saved and i talked to her about asking the lord in her life and she finally did. Well she has been dealing with the fact of not wanting to be alone. she wants someone to spend her years and memories with. i shared this poem with her and told her that this whole time she has had a man in her life that will never do her wrong and its opened her eyes. She is currently with someone whom i really love and both are saved going to church! Thank You so much you have been a blessing in my life!

That was nice and does bring tears in my life. Even though I have a man in my life the love of an earthly man can never ever come close or be as satisfying as the love that Jesus Christ brings. Your poem touched me In a way that only God can see. Thank you for being used by him.

Jennifer~ that poem really touches my heart, for it really describes how I'm feeling inside. I've just gotten out of a bad relationship and turned my life over to Jesus to be the Man of my life. Thank you for those sweet words.
arianna
Great poem. keep on writing and God Bless from a sister in Christ.
Lori
Thank-you for your God inspired words Jennifer. For as many that have responded to this poem it is obvious that this message has been heard. The "Bridegroom" desires this kind of relationship with His "brides". Whenever I have let lonliness creep in because I don't have a man; the Lord always takes me to the same piece of scripture 1 Corinthians 7:34 Oh how true are His words! Love to all my single sisters in Christ. We couldn't have ask for a better bridegroom!
Linda
