Even When...

I wrote this poem to hand out with candy canes tonight when me and my friends [TRANSFORMED - The Bible Study that we do] went Christmas Caroling to the elderly... I love the elderly. It's like when I'm surrounded by them, something in me breaks -- I even started to cry tonight [and I don't cry easily]. It is so real, though... I am so drawn to them. They really touch my heart, and sometime I just want to sit down with them and talk with them about their backgrounds, their life, and about Christ. I am so thankful that God gave us the opportunity to go there tonight to Christmas carol to them and hopefully witness and reach out to them. I was so blessed by going there tonight.
Here's the poem [and I give all of the credit to God for this. He wrote it through me.]

Even when you feel regret,
Even when you're full of pain,
Jesus cares about your heart,
And you can call on His precious Name.

Even when you feel alone,
Even when you're full of fears,
Jesus holds out His hands to you,
And wipes away all your tears.

If you will fall into His loving arms,
If you will take His outstretched hand,

He will forever hold you close,
And lead you to a glory land.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life."
-John 3:16
