What Do I Say to Someone Filled

What Do I Say to Someone Filled With Despair?


What do I say to someone filled with despair?

Many people I know have too often been there!


What do I say to someone who’s lost their employment?

Without a paycheck…  It’s easy to lose any sense of “fulfillment.”


What do I say to a family that’s being “torn apart?”

Often, bitterness and anger can reside in the heart!


What do I say to someone who feels utterly defeated.

Without God’s love...  A life is never truly completed!


What do I say to someone who wants to end his life?

Without any hope… One can easily be filled with strife.


What do I say to someone who know they’re dying?

They’ve spent many days weeping and crying!


What Jesus has to say is; “Peace be still!”

Whatever your need...  He alone can fulfill!


What Jesus has to say to a “hopeless situation.”

He alone can give true love, hope and salvation!


What Jesus has to say rings loud and clear.

Whatever you face in life…  He is always there!


What Jesus has to say are words with power!

He can restore your life!  And do it this hour!


What do you have to say to someone

 who’s gracious and kind?

Won’t you give him your life and all of your time?


What God’s word has to say

will never disappoint you!

Please come to Jesus and accept him... 

Won’t you?

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!
