Jesus Was The Only One I Could Turn

Jesus Is The Only One I Could Turn To !


Lost and lonely, I was often bewildered.

There were life’s problems I shouldered.


I was empty inside and at my “wits end.”

There was no one around when I needed a friend.


I thought about “ending it all.”  I had nowhere to go.

Life was rather unpleasant, boring and DULL!


I was living for each moment and what pleased me.

The people nearby made fun and teased me.


Then one night, I cried to Jesus in  desperation.

I decided to call out to him and give an invitation!


I give an invitation for him to come and help me.

Would he come?  No one could tell me!


As I prayed, a gentle peace entered my mind.

I knew this was God and this was my time!


A time to be forgiven of a life “messed up.”

A time for God’s love to completely fill me up!


As I felt his love and peace all around me…

This God I didn’t know, came and found me!


I’m so thankful for him and his loving care.

I don’t know what I’d do if he wasn’t there!


I invite you to accept this God that I received.

Won’t you put your faith in him, and believe?


This wonderful God changed me from within!

He’s me precious Lord, savior and friend!

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!
