I Had Some Trouble Right before Me!

I Had Some Trouble Right Before Me!



I had some trouble right before me!

I was in pain, as it began to hurt me!


I was filled with uncertainty and fear!

I told it; “I want you to get out of here!”


But no matter how much I tried to do it.

I realized that I failed!  I blew it!


I was trying all of this on my own!

I felt utterly helpless and all alone!


I then felt someone speak inside of me.

He said; “I am Jesus!”  Won’t you try me?”


I knew that I wasn’t as strong as I thought I was!

Jesus was there to help!

Because it’s me, whom he loves!


I asked him to take away all of my pride!

I gave him everything!  I’d nothing to hide!


He took my troubles and anxiety within.

And taught me to surrender and trust him!


He brought a joy and peace that I never  knew!

I felt his mighty strength, and became renewed!


I bless you my Lord!  With much gratitude!

I know you now!  And a humbled attitude!


Over life’s troubles, Jesus helps me to prevail!

He is God!  And will never fail!

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!
