Suicide Is Not the Answer!

Suicide Is Not the Answer!


Lately, I have noticed a very disturbing trend...

Many people wish for their life to end!


There are many circumstances

that bring this about.

Many feel "trapped in," and think

"there's no way out!"


I admit,… I have been very

discouraging thoughts.

Sometimes, wondering, if I was dealt

"the wrong lot."


But just when I feel alone

and trapped within.

I think about Jesus! He's always

been my friend!


I've called to him more than a time or two...

When I didn't know

"what I was going to d."


When, to him, I cried out and pleaded…

He's given to me the hope

and direction I needed!


I recommend this same Jesus

to your life today!

Whatever your problem…

He has made a way!


An abundant assurance

Is what Jesusbrings!

He is an awesome God!

And can take care of everything!


Your problems are never too big

or small for him to take control.

He can bring healing to you!

And make your body whole!


He is what is needed in this lost

and dying generation!

Won't you accept his mercy

and salvation???

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!
