Jesus, Please Heal My Hurts!

Jesus, Please Heal My Hurts!


This one thing,

 I’m most certain,

Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.


I want to do what’s right…

But it turns out “wrong”

I don’t really know where I belong.


There’s many in church,

 who pass me by.

I sometimes get an

 occasional “Hi!”


Is my message is

 getting across?

I feel so confused and

completely lost.


A message of “help” is my

 desperate plea,

For someone to reach out to me.


I need someone,

 Who won’t let go!

I need God’s love

 and compassion in my soul.


I know that Jesus

 is someone I can lean on.

He is someone that

 I can always depend on!


Lord, I give you my hurts!

Faults and all!

You’re there to pick me up…

When I stumble and fall!


You’ve given to me

mercy and salvation!

Through you, I’ve hope,

peace and restoration!

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!
