I Waned to Know How You're Doing
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Wanted To Know; “How Are You Doing?”


Someone wanted to know how I was doing…

He had no idea of the storms that “were brewing.”


I simply answered; “everything’s going fine.”

 I had quite a few things

 “on my mind!”


It just seemed like everything

 “came crashing around.”

I needed someone to pick me up,

 when I was “down.”


I then felt a gentle voice

whispered into my ear…

“Do not be discouraged.”  “I am here!”


I looked all around, and much to my surprise..

This same voice then said;

 “get up and arise!”


As I arose, I felt someone’s hand

on my shoulder.

It was like this hand had

removed a “large boulder.”


I heard this voice before!  I heard it again!

This was the voice of the one

I call my lord and friend!


The words he spoke to me were

 quite evident and clear.

Whatever situation I am in.

 He is always near!


Every step that I take. 

Every breath that I breathe.

Jesus has promised me

 he will never leave!


He has strengthened me,

and “blew my storms away!”

And has brought hope and healing

 to my life today!

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!
