Do You Feel Like Giving Up? Jesus
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Do You Feel Like Giving Up?  Jesus Is Here!


Are you at a place where your

problems overwhelm you.

You just feel like this world

has turned against you?


You may feel like you’re all alone and afraid?

There may have been many times

when you tried to pray.


You may have asked for help,

but no one seems concerned.

You’re at the point of not knowing

 which direction to turn?


You may feel like life has given you an empty bag.

Things in life are going downhill,

and seem to be a “drag…”


You may have tried every opened door that you can think of.

But there’s just no help for you that you can speak of!


There’s someone who loves you, waiting to get “involved.”

There’s no problem too big or small,

that he cannot SOLVE!


His name is Jesus!  He’s as close as the mention of his name!

He can help you right now! 

Your life can be totally changed!


In his name, all power on earth and heaven is given!

Won’t you allow him to give you

 a brand new life worth livin’?


He can and will do exceedingly above

what you may wish or ask!

He can turn around and take care

of the most difficult task!


I encourage you to give him a chance

 to turn your life around!

And allow his wonderful grace to plant

 your feet on solid ground!


He is and will forever be the God

 that anyone will need to call!

He’s what life is all about and

makes living worth it all!

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!
