Have You Met Someone Bruised and Af
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Have You Met Someone Bruised And Afflicted?


Have you meet someone who’s

 been battered and abused?

Their body all torn up, beaten and bruised?


Have you met someone involved

 in a “deep addiction?

Causing harm to themselves

and many afflictions…


Have you met someone who

 seems to be “all right?”

But chose the “dark path.”  

And not THE LIGHT!


There’s many lives involved in many

kinds of perversions.

Many who’ve left their families

for their “obsessions.”


Only the blood of Christ

can break the bondage of sin!

Only Jesus can bring a complete

 healing deep within!


Only Jesus can bring true love

to a discouraged soul!

He’s done this for me!  This I surely know!


I don’t know where I’d be if not

for his mercy and grace!

He picked me up and planted

 my life on a solid place!


He traded the ashes of my life

 for his wonderful beauty.

Serving him is an honor and my faithful duty!


He truly gives a peace that passes

 all understanding.

It’s available to you today! 

And can be yours for the asking!

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!
