If God Is for Us Who Can Be

If God Is For Us…  Who Can Be Against Us?


After losing my job…  I wondered how

 my attitude would change.

But I noticed something I thought was

 “peculiar and strange.”


Other people’s attitudes I was

 now beginning to see…

I saw just how inconsiderate they

 were of people like me!


A few offered to me Godly encouragement

 and a helping hand…

Many didn’t want to hear my problems

 or try to understand.


I soon realized that so much in life

 is done in “futility.”

If people lost their jobs like I did… 

What would be their security?


Perhaps just so many people are

 used to having good things.

Many haven’t had to endure the hardships

 that life often brings


Jesus…  You’re my strength and refuge! 

And this I know…

You’re with me every day!

 How I love YOU so!


With HIS help…  I and my family

 will endure!

He is the foundation of our home. 

True and secure!


Thank you my Lord for bringing

 peace to my heart!

You have been with me… 

From the start!

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!
