I Knew Someone Who Was Ready to “End It All!”


I knew of someone who just wanted “to end it.”

Giving up on life, and didn’t want to “defend it.”


It was a heart wrenching and difficult situation.

He said what he wanted to, with no explanation!


I could see his face and the sad look in his eyes!

What he was going to do, was anyone’s surprise.


He turned to drugs and encountered addictions.

With this brought much disease and afflictions!


He gave up on the wonderful family that was given.

And turned to a pretty wild and crazy way of livin’!


I told him about a God who loves him very deeply.

As he listened, he grew quite weary and sleepy.


I reached for his hand and began to pray for God’s power!

It was a miracle!  The blood of Jesus changed him that hour!


The spirit of God brought healing and hope to his body!

He was so excited!  He rushed out to tell everybody!


The “end” that he wanted, seemed to just fade away!

For the son of the living God, changed him this day!


The glory of God, and the power of Jesus’ resurrection…

Changed him!  And got him going in a NEW direction!


He’s so thankful for the blood of Christ’ atonement!

And is a different person now, because of that moment!


This same Jesus loves and can do the same for YOU!

Through the problems of life…  

He will see you through!

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!
