To Those Discouraged... Jesus Is H

To Those Discouraged, Jesus Is Here!


What should be said to those filled with despair?

Many people I know have often been there!


What should be said, to those without employment?

Without a paycheck, it’s easy to lose a sense of “fulfillment.”


What should be said, to a family that’s being “torn apart?”

Often, bitterness and anger can reside in the heart!


What should be said, to whom feels totally defeated.

Without God’s love, a life is never truly completed!


What should be said, to one who wants to end his life?

Without any hope, one can easily be filled with strife.


What should be said, to someone who knows they’re dying?

They’ve spent many days weeping and crying!


What Jesus has to say is; “Peace be still!”

“Whatever you need, my love can fulfill!”


What Jesus has to say to a hopeless situation…

“Give me with your life and receive my salvation!”


What Jesus has to say rings loud and clear...

“Whatever you face in life, I’m always here!”


What Jesus has to say are words with power!

“I can restore your life!  And do it this hour!”


What do you say, to a savior,

 so wondrous and kind?

Won’t you give him your life and all of your time?


What Jesus’ words say will never disappoint you!

Please accept and allow him to

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!
