How Can We Hurt the Ones We Love?

How Can We Hurt The Ones We Love?


How can we hurt the very ones that we love?

How can we easily neglect our God above?


It seems like I often hear about many victims

Many times, it’s from a loved one who’s been with them!


The hate and the anger that boils from deep within.

Often “boils over” toward  family and friends.


It’s the love of Christ that we need to find!

His love can totally cleanse our life and mind!


The hearts of many families are bruised and broken.

By the harshness of many of the words spoken.


If we would allow Jesus to rule and reign.

We’d have little reason to murmur or complain.


If we would yield our lives to the master’s will…

The emptiness and brokenness, he shall fulfill!


If we could allow ourselves to sit at Jesus’ feet…

He can make any family totally complete!


If we could just listen to what Christ has to say.

His words of life would brighten our day!


As a family…  Won’t you give HIM a chance?

And allow his love to change your circumstance!


Won’t you allow his spirit to bind you together?

You can experience his peace today and forever!


He can change your family throughout!

This is his will and what God is all about!

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!
