What Will I Do? Where Will I Go?

What Will I Do?   Where Will I Go?


What will I do?  Where will I go?

Which direction I’ll take…  I don’t really know!


In just a moment, I lost all,  that I worked hard to get…

I’m thinking of “letting go.” 

But haven’t done it yet…


The things I held so close...  Have all disappeared.

It happened so fast.  It’s kind of “weird.”


Those I call my friends, don’t really know

 what to say.

Most of them shake their heads, and walk away!


I’ve cried myself to sleep many days and nights.

It’s like someone has “turned off the lights.”


The only one I know, that I can turn to, is Christ alone!

I need him to heal my broken heart and home.


Dear Jesus, will you take some time to help me out?

I know that helping people is what you’re about!


Please help me to pick up the

pieces that are scattered!

Help me to focus on the things in life

 that really matter!


I need to give you, all of my focus and attention!

I need your word to show me

 some clear direction!


You’re the one that I always need to hold on to!

I need to do this, and to completely trust you!


Thank you Jesus for listening

 and answering my prayer!

I’m thankful that you’re someone who really cares!


Thank you for restoring my life,

 that has been “up-ended.”

With your love, my heart has been

 healed and mended!

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!
