Through Lifeís Trials And HardshipsÖ

Iíve been through trials and difficult situations.

Many times it happens with no explanation!

Whatever Iíve had or have taken with me.

Iíve been there when everyone has left me!

The uncertainties Iíve had and struggles I face.

Have brought me to my knees in a ďquietĒ place.

The journeys Iíve traveled and the storms ahead.

Have brought worry and stress in the words Iíve said.

†††††††††††††††††††††† Whatever trials Iíve faced...To Jesus I cried!

A comfort and strength . He did provide!

††††††††††††††††††††† I know a truth thatís important and most certain.†††††††††††††††††††††

Jesus can take away any hardship or burden!

If there were no trials...How could I trust him?

Because of what heís doneHow much I love him!

If I had no hardships or trials, Iíd probably ďforget him.Ē

Giving him my whole life?I donít think Iíd let him!

Heís proven beyond any doubt how much he loves me!

He reached down from heaven and touched me!

Heís my comfort and joy and enduring friend!

Heíll be there with meÖTill the very end!

This Jesus I know.I recommend him to you!

He is God!Our provider! This is so true!

Wonít you give him a chance in your life today!

He can bring hope and take

the dark clouds away!

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!
