I Know Someone Going Through a Dif

Going Through a Discouraging Time…


I know of someone going through

a discouraging time.

Thoughts of “giving up” have entered his mind.


As a young man, he tried to trust God with what he had.

Now he’s upset with God.  Very angry and mad.


“How could God who’s so loving and faithful...”

“Not help me now?” 

 “He doesn’t seem very helpful!”


Rather than trusting God with his

 problems and uncertainty.

He missed out on God’s love,

peace and tranquility!


His life spiraled down, with really “no where to go.”

He felt so empty, with no peace in his soul.


He shifted the focus of the uncertainties in life…

Blaming God for his many

 troubles and strife.


Through the good and bad times,

God is till the same.

He remains faithful and true. 

He doesn’t change!


He remains dedicated to being there…

Just for YOU!

His promises never change,

no matter what others do!


Allow him to prove his commitment to your well being!

His words of life…  You too can be receiving!


His love for you is everlasting, and will never end.

God is.  And will always…  Be your best friend.


Please...  Right now... 

Make the best choice!

Listen to his words!  And listen to his voice!


He’s at your heart’s door. 

Waiting for an invitation...

He can bring to your life completeness

 and restoration!

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!
