Just When It Seems Like Life Is Ove

Just When It Seems Like Life Is Overwhelming!


Just when it seems like I’ve faced

 my darkest night…

And things in life,

 aren’t turning out right…


This is about the time, when things

 are falling apart!

And I began to feel a lot of stress in my heart!


I run to Jesus!  I know that he wants to help me!

He’s always here!  And promises to never leave me!


He sees me, and speaks words

 of comfort, to follow!

He reminds me, that he’ll take care

 of today and tomorrow!


He lets me know that he won’t let go of my hand!

Everything I’m going through…

 He understands!


He turns back all of the problems that are overwhelming!

And I see what things my life, are becoming!


I have fellowship with Jesus!  Like I never had before!

He’s given to me peace and hope!  And much more!


I’m glad I have such a wonderful

 friend like this!

His love and joy…  I don’t want to miss!


Thank you Jesus!  For turning my life around!

And for plating my life on a solid ground!


You’re all I want!  And all that I’ve needed!

With you as my Lord!  My life has been completed!

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!
