God Brought a Healing to My Trouble

God Brought A Healing To My Troubled Mind…

 

I used to allow many thoughts to enter my mind.

There were good and bad ones...

 Just about every kind.

 

My family thought I was being a “good Christian.”

I never did anything that raised “a suspicion.”

 

I went to church every week and did the “Sunday thing.”

I had no idea the kind of life my thoughts would bring.

 

I felt much “turmoil” of what was in my head…

“How much longer can I take this?”

Were the words I said.

 

As there were many bad thoughts

that seemed to “burn.”

Those around me didn’t know or were concerned.

 

I needed some help.  And I needed it fast!

I didn’t know how much longer I would last!

 

With no friend to help..,  I decided to pray.

This was my time with God!  This was my day!

 

I cried out to God with a voice of confession;

“Dear Jesus rule over my mind and take possession!”

 

As I read God’s word...  Philippians 4:8 was found.

Virtue and wholeness in my life needed to abound!

 

I asked and begged God to help me to obey it!

I gave my commitment to him.  And not just “say it.”

 

A love for him as a friend was found and did bring.

His peace and love 

“washed away” the evil things.

 

Christ restored my life and my mind was renewed.

He set me free!  I’m now “BRAND NEW!”

 

Won’t you allow God to bring his love to your soul?

With him in your life... 

All darkness will GO!

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!
