I Was Discouraged... But Jesus Fou
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Was Discouraged…  But Jesus Found Me!


I was so discouraged the

 way things were going.

I was frustrated and upset.

 And it was showing!


I was about ready to give up

 on everything I tried…

And remember the nights

I laid awake and cried.


I thought of God.  Whom I once

 had professed…

But now was doubtful, confused

and so depressed.


Just then, I felt a loud voice coming down,

And soon felt God’s love and

 presence all around!


His voice spoke clearly

 that particular day.

And spoke three words to me;

 trust and obey!”


These words had a new meaning

 and touched my heart.

For Jesus has loved me. 

Right from the start!


I poured out my heart to him

 with every burden.

He rolled back the dark clouds

 and “heavy curtain.”


He helped me to focus and give

my worries to him.

As a new life began to transform

from within!


I’ve given to him my every problem

 and every need.

His word and spirit has given

a new direction to lead.


Won’t you allow him to change

your life this hour?

And experience his love and

 life-changing power???

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!
