I've Seen Many Trials!

I’ve Seen Many Trials…


I’ve been through trials and hard situations.

 It often happens with no explanation!


Whatever I’ve had or have taken with me.

I’ve been there when everyone has left me!


The uncertainties I’ve had and struggles I face.

Have brought me to my knees in a “quiet” place.


The journeys I’ve traveled and the storms ahead.

Have brought worry and stress in the words I’ve said.


                       Whatever trials I’ve faced...  To Jesus I cried!

A comfort and strength .   He did provide!


                     I know a truth that’s important and most certain.                    

Jesus can take away any hardship or burden!


If there were no trials...  How could I trust him?

Because of what he’s done  How much I love him!


If I had no hardships or trials, I’d probably “forget him.”

Giving him my whole life?  I don’t think I’d let him!


He’s proven beyond any doubt how much he loves me!

He reached down from heaven and touched me!


He’s my comfort and joy and enduring friend!

He’ll be there with me…  Till the very end!


This Jesus I know.  I recommend him to you!

He is God!  Our provider! This is so true!


Won’t you give him a chance in your life today!

He can bring hope and take

 the dark clouds away!

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!
