Jesus Has Been So Faithful to Us!

Jesus Has Been So Faithful to Us!


As I look back on what God brought us through.

I’m so thankful for his faithfulness so true!


I think about the time when I was out of work.

And the times I was down to my “last shirt.”


Just when things seemed to overwhelm me.

I wondered if anyone was there to help me.


Just when things seemed discouraging and lost…

I decided to get my focus on the cross!


I cried out, “Jesus, if I lose all, yet have you...”

“That’s all that matters, as long as I know you!”


“Everything can be taken, but if you’re by me.”

“I trust that your spirit will be there to guide me!”


I felt such a peace and joy that I didn’t know.

And felt such a sweet presence within my soul!


God was faithful!  There was food on the table!

He proved himself to us!  He’s more than able!


He helped us through the tough times of our life!

And kept us together, as a husband and wife!


Our faith and trust in him seemed to grow stronger!

Much of the discouragement wasn’t there any longer!


May I encourage you to put your faith in him!

He is the almighty God and wants you to know him!


His love can do what no one else could ever do!

He’s here right now!  And is waiting for 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!
