Things in My LIfe Aren't So Good

Things In My Life Aren’t Going so Good.



I feel like I’m alone and misunderstood…

Lately, things haven’t been going very good.


I wonder how much longer I’m going to last?

Things seem to be going downhill…  Fast!


As I stumble through life and begin to wonder…

How can I hold on?  How much longer?


I don’t know who to trust or where to turn.

I once cared.  But am no longer concerned!


Someone told me something, the other day…

I was listening to the words he had to say!


He said there’s a God in heaven who knows me…

He knows what I’m going through!

And still loves me!


 I was told that God can change everything around!

He’ll pick me up, when I fall to the ground!


He’ll surround me with arms of mercy... Wide open!.

And put back my life…  That’s been broken!


I’m going to put all of my problems into his hands!

I know that he cares! And understands!


Thanks you dear Lord, for give me this chance!

I know you can make me new! 

No matter the circumstance!


Thank you Lord!  For your love divine!

I’m so glad I’m yours!  And you are mine!

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!
