Cross in my pocket poem

I carry a cross in my pocket

A simplereminder to me

Of the fact that I am a Christian

No matter here I may be .


This little cross isn’t magic

Nor is it a good luck charm

It isn’t meant to protect me

From every physical harm.


It isn’t for identification

For all the world to see

It’s simply an understanding

Between my savior and me.


When I put my hand in my pocket

To bring out a coin or a key

The cross is there to remind me

Of the price He paid for me.


It reminds me too, to be thankful

For my blessings day by day

And to strive to serve Him better

In all that I do or say.


It’s also a daily reminder

Of the peace and comfort I share

With all who know my Master

And give themselves to His care.


So I carry  a cross in my pocket

Reminding no one but me

That Jesus Christ is Lord of my life

If only I’ll let Him be.

  1. Hi
    I have seen this from a friend at church and have been planning on making some. We have a monthly Ladies’ breakfast and in June I have volunteered to do a craft project. I thought this would be a good one as it doesn’t need a lot of skill. I plan to use Felt for those who don’y feel up to crossstitch .
    I will post pictures when completed.
