We Need to Love Others Through the

We Need to Love Others Through the Good and Bad!


After losing my job…  I wondered

if my attitude would change.

I noticed something I thought to be

“peculiar and strange.”


Other people’s attitudes I was now

beginning to see…

And how many times they

weren’t thoughtful of me!


A few offered encouragement

and a helping hand…

Many didn’t try to love me or

try to understand.


To get my eyes on others is simple futility…

I have put my hope in Jesus!

He’s my security!


I think many in church have had

a lot of good things…

And haven’t endured what hardship brings…


Jesus is my refuge and strength… 

He let me know…

To love the less fortunate and every lost soul!


With God’s help…  I and my family will endure!

But my prayers go out to others… 

That’s for sure!


May the Lord God convict and

open up prideful hearts.

This is where Christ’ love

 in action really starts!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
