Embarrassed and Discouraged? Try J
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Embarrassed?  Try Jesus!


Has your life been down

an embarrassment?

Is it filled with worry

 and discouragement?.


Are there things you thought

that you once enjoyed?

But there remains

 a large, empty void?


Have there been times,

When you couldn’t sleep?

Perhaps there’s a “hole” in life 

that’s very deep?


God is here!

 And willing to listen!

Perhaps, it’s him in your life,

That you’ve been missin'?


Maybe you’ve tried everything else!?

Why not come back to him?

He can change your heart

and cleanse you within!


He will never

 let go of you hand!

Everything about you,

He understands!


Only HE can satisfy the

 emptiness in your soul!

Only Christ can make you complete,

satisfied, and whole!

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!
