Is My Life Headed toward a Dead End

Is My Life Heading Toward A Dead End Road?


As I feel life’s struggles, and carry a heavy load.

I often wonder if my life is at a dead end road?


I think about what I’ve done and where I’ve been.

And never know who’s my adversary or friend.


Many that I thought I could trust.  I can trust no more.

It just seems like my life is a big revolving door.


There’s a question I often ponder, in my mind.

“Is my life just a speck on the table of time?”


Scripture says that life is as “a spark in the sky.”

I’m here for a brief moment.  And then I’ll die.


I want to make the most of what God has given.

And really think about how I’ve been livin’.


I’m giving my life to Jesus!  And all that’s in it.

I need his love, and the help of his spirit!


Please come Jesus, and help me to be strong.

It’s in your loving arms that I surely belong!


Because of Jesus, my life has been set free!

He’s brought to me his grace, so abundantly!


The joy and peace he’s given are ever so sweet!

By his shed blood, my life is now complete!


Life’s dead end road is now a road wide open!

Because of Christ, the roadblocks have been broken!

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!
