God Gives Peace for Our Struggles

God Gives Peace for Our Struggles

God Gives Peace For Our Struggles Within…

 

I was talking with someone who had many struggles within.

He said he “couldn’t help giving in to sin.”

 

He talked about the many kind of things

 he’s been going through.

He was very discouraged.

 And didn’t know what to do.

 

Phillipians 4:8 was the verse that came to my mind.

That which is lovely and good…  He should find!

 

He acknowledged the truth of what God’s word said.

And said he “was going to clean house”

prior to going to bed.

 

It was just a few weeks later that I met him at church.

He said he had a hunger for God.  And a new “search.”

 

As he searched God’s word,

he found the help he needed.

“God please help and forgive me,”

 were the words he pleaded.

 

He had reached “rock bottom.”  With no way out.

And found out what living for Christ is all about!

 

He began to have victory in area of life he never had.

God had given him his hope and love.  He was so glad!

 

As he came closer to Jesus, his life had a new meaning.

Into the arms of his savior, he was leaning!

 

He discovered the power of what Christ can do!

And found hope in the words of Christ;

“I LOVE YOU!”

 

Won’t you accept the gift from God,

 this person received?

And find out what it’s like

 to trust God and believe!

 

You can experience salvation and God’s

 life changing power!

Why not start today?  This could be YOUR hour!

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!
