When Trouble Comes, Jesus Is Here!

When Trouble Comes…  Jesus Is Here!


I often hear others talk

about diversity…

Very seldom do I hear

 talk about adversity.


I’m talking about what to do when

 life is down.

When someone’s lonely,

and there’s not a friend to be found.


I’m thinking about the heart

 growing weary and sad.

When someone has lost

everything they had…


As many have sought,

the American dream…

They wake up one morning

 and lost everything.


What does one do in a situation like this?

When everything seems to be

one big mess?”


There’s one who can bring hope

 to a desperate situation.

All he needs is a “heart-felt invitation!”


His name is Jesus! 

 He wants you to know…

He can speak peace to your life

 and make you whole!


Though many things in your life

 may have been taken…

With Christ on board, 

you’re never left or forsaken!


Lay your every burden

and worry at his feet.

Only he can restore you and

 make your life complete!

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!
