I Hear of So Much Sin and Heartache

I Hear Of So Much Sin And Heartache…


I hear of so much sin, heartache and despair.

At times I wish I could have been there!


I’ve cried out to God; “How can I make a difference?”

I’ve often reflected on my life’s experience.


But no matter how much I try to understand…

I know there’s a “darkness” over much of the land.


No matter if I were about to correct all of the wrong.

I’m not God.  And I’m just not that strong!


No matter if I could just “blow away” all of the sin.

I really wouldn’t know where to begin!


You see…  I’m a sinner just saved by God’s grace!

He took my life and put it on a solid place!


If not for his love, I don’t know where I would be.

I’d be lost today and for eternity!


So here’s my effort in encouraging other’s struggles…

My beloved Jesus can help you out of any trouble!


Whatever sin or heartache you may be enduring.

God’s peace and love is most assuring!


Whatever in life may be getting you down…

Where sin is, God’s grace does much more abound!


If things in your life appear to be “unraveling.”

Think about what road of life you’re traveling!


Won’t you give Jesus a chance?  He’s concerned!

He will always help you to “make the right turn!”


He’ll restore what the enemy has taken away!

His love and joy will brighten your day!


He is God.  He is the great I am!

Won’t you reach out and take his hand?

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!
