When You Face Trials and Heartache


I often hear about trials that come our way.

They can cause you to have a “discouraging day.”


I hear about when things in life

 “come crashing down.”

It’s hard not to find heartache all around!


I see the brokenness in some people’s faces.

They’re often “tossed around” to different places!


I know there’s a God who loves us and cares.

Whatever happens…  He is fully aware!


I’ve read in the Bible something I remembered.

God has every hair on your

 head numbered!


Whatever you’re going through… 

He understands!

He’s always there for you… 

With an outstretched hand!


Why not allow him into your life

 to get involved?

There’s nothing that’s impossible

for him to solve!


What should you do in a difficult situation?

Come to Jesus!  He gives an invitation!


Perhaps you’re tied down with life’s stress…

Come to HIM now!  He’ll give you rest!


He can do what no other power can do!

He’s here right now…

And is 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!
