Deserted by the One Who Said; "I Lo

Deserted By the One Who Said; “I Love You!”.


I met someone who didn't

know whom to turn to…

She was deserted by the one

 who said; "I love you!"


I can't begin to describe

 her look of despair.

She asked; "does anyone out

there really care?"


She told me of her very

 difficult situation.

Feeling hopelessness

 and frustration.


I remember seeing her and her

family at church before.

But things are different now...

She's not happy anymore.


I was in a hurry... not wanting

 this "extra burden."

But this one thought from scripture

became quite certain.


We must minister to the widows

 and single mothers too.

This is a command Jesus asks of me and you.


As the body of Christ... we must

serve one another.

Reaching out to the widows

 and the single mother.


We must see that their needs get

our undivided attention.

Even though, at times,

it's a difficult situation.


We must act quickly and

firmly take a stand.

Reaching out to those forsaken…

  as Christ commands!


Let’s minister to the hurting

and lonely as Christ wants us to!

Tomorrow…  It could be me…

 Or YOU!

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!
