Jesus Is Our Refuge!

Jesus Is Our Refuge!


I see around me a lot of uncertainty and fear.

I ask myself: “what is going on around here?”


It seems like the world is crashing all around us.

We seem to have pandemic that “found us.”


As we spend each day that passes on by…

We witness more accounts of people that die.


We tend to look to government to help us out.

As many of our loved ones, we are without.


Jesus is our only refuge in the middle of the stress.

He says, “come not me and I’ll give you rest!”


He’s the perfect refuge in the time of uncertainty.

He provides peace, hope and eternal stability.


If you have trials and don’t know how to solve them.

Jesus is ere right now!  Why not involve him???”


To the storms of life, he speaks, “peace be still!”

Whatever you have need of…  He can fulfill!


Now’s the opportunity and appointed time!

He’s here with his arms wide

open for all mankind!

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!
