In Our Trouble, Jesus Is There!

In Our Troubles...

  Jesus Is There!


There are troubles in life...

I wish I could trade!

I can think of good and bad

 decisions I have made.


This is a most unfortunate situation

I find myself in.

Is causing a lot of grief and

 pain deep withini...


The guilt I feel I can't

"begin to explain."

To be honest with you...

It's brought me shame.


Where Lord... did I get

"so many things wrong?"

There's many things in my

life that don't belong!


I ask you Jesus to take total

 and complete control...

I don't know who else to turn to...

 or where else to go.


Please come & take the broken

pieces that surround me.

So much of my life was lost,

but now you've found me!


In your goodness and love...

 my life is now content.

From my wrong and sin...

 I now humbly repent!


I thank you Jesus for

turning my life around.

YOU are the very best friend

 I have ever found!

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!
