I'm Not Alone! Jesus Is Here!

I’m Not Alone!  Jesus Is Here!


I’ve been blessed to have a family

 and home.

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


I’d go to church each Sunday

 and “did my best.”

But others didn’t know my trials

and stress.


I’d go out of my way and reach

out to others.

I’d do my best to help my sisters

and brothers.


Many would walk by me

and not once say; “hi.”

They’d simply kept walking

 as they passed by.


I’d try to go to many of the

church’s events.

But much of my time,

with others, I spent.


Many nights, before bedtime, I’d pray.

I wanted to do God’s will and trust

and obey.


He was there and held me close to him.

He told me that he loved me

 and was my friend.


Many had “left” me, but Jesus was

 there for me.

Each day how, his presence and love

surrounds me.


Jesus was there when he was

desperately needed.

With him in my life, I’m blessed

and 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!
