If We Lose Everything There's Jesus
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

If We Lose Everything…  There’s Jesus!


We have seen the destruction of various storms!

They come swiftly and in many forms!


So many people have lost everything they had.

I see their look on t.v.  And it’s very sad!


I wish I had the money to buy them a home.

So many look lonely and feel all alone!


I wish I could “wave a wand” and make it go away.

I wish to encourage them, with what I have to say


In spite of all of our nation’s goals and ambitions.

It can’t make up for life’s

adversities and afflictions.


Calamity and heartache can quickly appear!

And much of what we have, can soon disappear!


If I can encourage the many who’ve lost so much…

I pray you’ll be strengthened

 by God’s loving touch!


Won’t you let him help pick up the “broken pieces?”

He can bring hope and total completeness!


He can build and restore that which has been loss!

He does it willingly!  And already paid the cost!


It may seem like you have just lost everything…

Won't you accept the kind of comfort,

Christ can bring?


Won’t you allow him to restore your life today???

He’s more than able to do it,

 in a gentle and loving way!

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!
