What If...?

What If….?


What if you knew that

 “your luck has run out?”

“No one” listens…

 no matter how loud you “shout.”


What if your life has

 hit a “dead end road?”

You’ve “lost everything.”

 Even your car’s been towed.


What if all that you have

“suddenly disappeared.”

Your circumstances in life can

 be described as “weird.”


What if you got on

 your knees in prayer.

Knowing there’s a

  God who really does care.


What if you gave Jesus

 complete control.

Giving him your life,

 your heart, and eternal soul.


What if Jesus gently

 wiped away your tears.

And his peace calmed your

 anxiety and fears.


What if you realized,

 at this moment in time;

 Jesus is worth more than a large gold mine.


What if he restored what you’ve lost,

 & what was taken.

With him on board…you’re never forsaken.


An abundant life is what

 he promises to give.

And he will enrich your life

 each day that you live!

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!
