Do You Feel Like There's Nowhere to

Do You Feel Like There’s Nowhere to Go?


I know that it's easy to get

discouraged and upset.

Feeling “trapped” ...  But you

can't escape "just yet."


You've tried everything.  And not

 sure what else to do?

Is there someone

who can help you through?"


Many things you've done. 

You’ve wanted to be forgiven!

Yet struggle with this

 Each day your livin’!


You meet people and

wear a "smile."

And sometimes wonder if living

 is really worth the while.


You may have prayed

 over and over again.

And yet constantly feel

Like you’re “trapped within.”


You may have tried to 

call on Jesus' name.

Yet find yourself in

  "guilt and shame."


Jesus is here now!

And wants you to know…

He can bring peace

to your troubled soul.


Rather than thinking of things

done in the past.

Come to Jesus now

His love will always LAST!


Allow HIM to bring to your life

the needed victory now!

He'll make you a brand new person!

 And HOW!

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!
