I Know of Somone Who Helped in Chur

I Know Someone, Who Helped In Church, For Many Years…



I know someone, who helped in church, for many years.

She put in much time through her sweat and tears.


She was a big help in the ministry in all she tried.

Until the day that she needed help.  Then she cried!


You see she had children she was raising at home.

There were many nights that she felt all alone.


No matter how many times she asked for prayer.

Not one came to help.  No one seemed to care!


She got discouraged and wondered why she came.

Many of the people she talked to, seemed to “forget” her name.


She gave her heart and time, to lend a helping hand.

Upon her cries for help, no one seemed to understand.


She was a full time member, but quit attending.

She had a broken and hurt heart… That needed “amending.”


Not once did any one from church call to see how she was.

It didn’t seem like anyone cared for her…  Just because…


The people she was in ministry with, didn’t give a thought.

They were so busy with their “Sunday routine.”  And forgot!


Hurt and bewildered, this lady knew one thing to do.

She found a quiet place each night, to hear the words; “I love you!”


Jesus spoke these words of comfort, peace and grace!.

He came down and put her life on a solid place!


He healed the hurt and pain that others were “avoiding.”

And gave her his love and joy that she’s now enjoying!


Won’t you allow this same Jesus to restore what’s been lost?

He can do it for you!  Think of his sacrifice on the cross!


Churches and people will always let you down!

There’s an abundant life in Jesus! 

Just waiting to be found!

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!
