Many Families Are in Difficult Situ

Many Families Are In Difficult Situations!



I’ve seen many families in difficult situations!

Often ending up in lies and false accusations!


I’ve seen many families stray way off course…

And tragically, often, end up in a divorce!


I’ve seen the hardships that many families endure.

Their faith has often been shaken.

 That’s for sure!


I’ve seen many families trying to give 100 percent.

And then wondering where all of their time went!


I’ve seen all these things happening

 and much more!

I have wondered; “what is all of this happening for?”


I’ve just one thing to say in this “chaotic confusion.”

Only the blood of Jesus gives

 any hope or solution!


It’s only in his word, we’ll find a godly direction!

His Holy Spirit can give true and loving correction!


May we seek his spirit to bind us all together!

And pray for his blood for our protection forever!


Please come Lord Jesus, and refresh our soul!

We need you right now, to make us whole!


Please touch our heart, and make us all one!

And heal every father, mother, daughter and son!


Please help us to watch what we’ll do and say!

You can turn our darkest night

 into the brightest day!

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!
