These Are Difficult Times!

These Are Difficult Times!


These are difficult times with many frustrations.

Many people in hardships and difficult situations!


Many are filled with worry and concern.

Not really knowing which direction to turn.


As more are getting dependent on government.

Many without work have lost any kind of fulfillment.


While many seek what seems to be the best “plan.”

Cries of hopelessness ring throughout the land!


I, too, have been without work in the past.

Wondering how much longer it would last.


The months that went by, turned into years…

As I’ve sought assurance for my worries and fears.


The only true peace and security that I’ve found.

Has brought love, when life came “crashing down.”


I found that what really matters the most!

Is Jesus! And letting him hold me close!


I knew if I lost everything that was around me…

God’s presence and peace still surrounds me!


He made it very evident and so very clear.

Whatever happens in life...  HE IS ALWAYS HERE!


He picked me up when I felt lonely and depressed!

With him in my life!  I felt comforted and blessed!


My problems didn’t disappear in just one day!

But through life’s trials…  God made a way!


Whatever difficulty or problem you may face…

Won’t you accept God’s gift of mercy and grace?


He can do more than any other power can do!

And brings meaning to the words; “I LOVE 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!
