ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
When life gets tough we sometimes feel we have to run away.
We look at things much differently with every passing day.
It seems too complicated to stay and go the course.
We submit to selfish thinking, we give up to remorse.
This force can pull us far away. It steals away our hope,
It leads into a web of fear where we can’t even cope.
It pulls us in – devours us – and spits us out again –
It doesn’t care about us if souls it might obtain.
To fight these awful feelings which leave us all alone,
We have to change these hearts of ours, that now have turned to stone.
“Come follow me,” our Savior says, “come walk with me today.”
“I’ll take your hand and lead you and help you find your way.”
You can’t escape the woes of life ’til death is at your door,
But when you trust in Jesus, He’ll give you so much more.
Stop running from the Prince of Peace, instead run to His arms.
He’s waiting just to help you and rid you of life’s harms.
