When A Simple

When A Simple “God Bless You,” Isn’t Enough…


I’m here to tell you that when

 “the going get’s rough…”

A simple, “God bless you!”

  May not be enough!


Just when you think things in life

are getting you down…

And perhaps there’s “not a friend

anywhere to be found…”


Perhaps…  Right now… 

You find yourself right there!

Let me encourage you

to try some prayer!


Jesus is as close as the mention

of his name!

With him in control… 

Things will never be the same!


He’ll speak peace to the raging

waters of life’s ocean…

And will give to you…

His 100% “love potion!”


He’ll bring peace and healing

 to your heart and home.

He’s always there with you. 

You’re NEVER alone!


The chains of discouragement

will simply disappear…

His perfect love will

cast out all fear!


He’ll pick up the pieces

of life that are broken...

As you allow his words of love

and hope to be spoken.


He’ll do for you what no

power or God can do…

He’s here right now

He’s waiting for YOU!

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!
