Jesus Pushed Back The Troublesome W

Jesus Pushed Back The Troublesome Waters!


Troublesome waters were

 reaching me.

I could see dark clouds

and a very rough sea!


Rough waves began to

came ashore.

I didn’t know if I could take 



The storms of life overwhelmed my soul.

What tomorrow holds… 

God only knows!


I cried to the Lord with a heart-felt prayer.

I needed his help in my

 time of despair.


 I asked him to come and

take my hand.

I didn’t know how much more

 I could stand!


I felt his presence, like a cool

 summer breeze.

I came to the Lord Jesus,

down on my knees.


I asked for help, feeling

discouraged and  alone.

I wanted him to Lord of my

 heart and home!


Jesus came and is so precious and dear.

Whatever life brings me, he’s always near!


Troublesome waters won’t

overwhelm me!

Jesus came and  pushed them

 back to the sea!

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!
