When I Was at My Lowest... Jesus
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

When I Was At My Lowest…  Jesus Found Me!


When I was at my lowest…  Jesus found me!

He reached out, and put his arms around me!


I was discouraged, and not sure where to turn.

He said that he loved me, and was concerned!


For every defeat I had, and each sinful moment…

He offered his forgiveness and blood’s atonement!


He reassured me with his voice, and guiding hand.

I knew everything I went through…  He’d understand!


As he spoke, the darkness and heaviness disappeared.

The hope and peace he gave was true and sincere!


It was like a bright ray of sunshine had burst through!

I was speechless.  And not sure what to do.


I began to sing praise and give glory to his name!

I knew, that my life would never be the same!


Jesus has come!  His sweet peace, I am enjoying!

He brought a love and joy that is over flowing!


He met all of my needs!  And turned my life around!

When I was at my lowest, he planted me

 on higher ground!


He can do the same for you!  Won’t you let him?

When he’s done with you…  You won’t forget him!


He can do for anyone, what he did for me!

He offers an overcoming life!

 Ever so abundantly!

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!
