Do You Feel There Is No Hope?

I wrote this poem one night when I was thinking about where I had been in the past and comparing it to where I am now. The Lord reminded me that there were a lot of people in the world, including Christians, who, like me, in times of trouble start to feel full of despair and forget that there IS hope and help for them, if they would just reach out their hands to the Lord and let Him take control of their lives.

Do You Feel There Is No Hope?

In your times of deep despair,
Do you feel there is no hope?
As the darkness closes in on you
Do you feel you cannot cope?

As you struggle on through every trial,
Do you say "When will it end"?
As you cry yourself to sleep at night,
Do you wish you had a friend?

 When your body's racked with aches and pains,
Do you feel you are alone?
Or, when you think about the future,
Do you fear the great unknown?

There is someone who really cares,
And He hears your every cry.
His heart is calling out to you,
And on Him you can rely.

When things close in around you,
He sees your fear and doubt –
He wants to hold you in His arms,
And He will never cast you out.

As you stumble through the darkness,
He will be your guiding light.
He wants to wipe away your tears,
For you are precious in His sight.

So, reach out right now to Jesus,
And let Him take complete control –
Then He'll take that heavy burden,
And He'll touch and make you whole.

He's reaching out His arms to you,
 And He wants to be your friend.
 Let Him take you in His loving arms,
For His love will never end.
