I Lost Everything! But Found Jesus

I Lost Everything...   But Found Jesus!


I didn't know how good I had it,

until I lost all that I owned.

I lost my family, my cars

and even my home.


I tried to live a life according

 to a "good principle."

I let pride get in the way and

 felt "invincible."


I once had money, wealth and fame.

It seemed like everyone around

 me all knew my name.


I feel empty, afraid

and "at my wit's end."

Everyone has left me.

 Even my close “friends.”


Jesus... You're the one I know

that I can call upon.

You make things "right"

when all seems "wrong."


Only you can give,

what money can never buy.

I humbly kneel before you Lord,

with a desperate cry.


Please help me dear Jesus!

 I know that you can.

I read in your word that you are;

"I AM that I AM!"


In YOU... Jesus... I can

 find life's meaning.

Your life for mine,

 is what I'm receiving!


You're my best friend whom

I love so much.

I long for your mercy and peace...

your "special touch."


You alone can bring true joy that

fortune could never give.

You brought me hope, peace

 and a reason to live!

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!
