Jesus Picked Me Up!

Jesus Picked Me Up!


One day, I found my life was  “crashing down!”

Any peace in my life, was nowhere to be found.


The help I was looking for, just wasn’t there.

I got to the point in life where I didn’t even care!


There were some things I tried to hide.

But this body of mine was hurting inside!


I knew that my life was crashing down fast!

Any help I tried… Didn’t last!


What was I going to do?  I began to ponder.

I was very confused and began to wonder…


Then one night, I cried out to God, in Jesus’ name.

Things in my life would never be the same!


I cried, “God…Will you help me?”

 “I’ve nothing to give!”

I was discouraged and tired of the way I lived!


Just when all seemed hopeless with no way out…

God touched me with his love all throughout!


As time went by, and I’ve learned to trust him!

He’s done so much for me!   I love him!


He took away the uncertainties, doubts and fear.

I now know he’s with me.  He’s always here!


I’ m not stumbling around!  My path is brightened!

By his glory and beauty, my life is enlightened!


 Jesus picked me up when I was alone!

And has blessed my life, my heart and home!

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!
