When You Don't Have a Friend...

When You Don’t Have A Friend…



 There’s Jesus!



 



I think many in church neglect what they should do…



"Doing unto others as you'd



have them do unto you."



 



At first some try shake your hand



 and be a friend,



But you may say or do



 something that  offends.



 



Rather than reach out and loving



 in Jesus' name,



They're wish you’d leave and never came!



 



One day they talk to you..



Then...  They do not.



They pass you by...without a second thought.



 



Your feel like you’re  "mud in the ground."



When you need help…



They're nowhere to be found.



 



I know it's hard to be in this particular place.



Maybe wondering if you've fallen



 from God's grace.



 



No matter what others may do…



-God wants you to know.



You're in HIS hands...



and he’ll NEVER let you go!



 



Jesus is there for you--each and every day.



Listen to HIS voice--no matters what others say!

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!
