When All Else Fails... There's God
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

When All Else Fails…    There’s God!


There’s a lot of confusion in the

world these days.

Much of what we hear is what

 someone else says.


We are witnessing a lot of

panic, stress and fear.

Many of people’s livelihoods

have “disappeared.”


Many have bought things,

 because, “the want to...”

Have now lost those things they

 “held on to.”


Many have lost their jobs and daily wages.

Now are engaged in stress and “fits of rages.”


Many don’t enjoy the comforts

 they once had…

Are now staying at home,

discouraged and sad.


As we wait for the government

and a solution…

We can’t always tell the truth

from “pollution.”


WE must repent of our sins

and “false idols.”

We must return to the God of the Bible!


When everything fails and seems

 hopeless and lost…

We need to come back to God

 and the cross!


When all else fails, God loves

 and is with us!

Since he is for us…  who can

 be against us???

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!
