Jesus Was There!

Jesus Was There!


I’ve been blessed to have

 a family and home.

But often, I felt like I was “all alone.”


I’d go to church and try to “do my best.”

Though I endured many trials

 and stress.


I went out of my way to reach

 out to others.

I wanted to help out my sisters

 and brothers.


Often, those I reached out

 to would pass me by.

They wouldn’t talk to me or even say; “hi.”


I didn’t attend many of the church’s

social events.

Much of my time giving to others,

I had spent.


There were discouraging times I prayed.

I wanted to listen to what Jesus

had to say.


He was there and held me

 close to him.

He reassured me that I could

 trust him.


Many had left, but Jesus was

 there for me!

Each day now, he tells how

much he loves me!


Jesus Is the friend in my life

 that’s needed!

With him as my Lord, my life

 is completed!

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!
