Do you sometimes find yourself struggling to find answers? Do life’s problems leave you feeling like you’re at the end of your rope, and you’d rather just give up?

We’ve all been there…lost in the chaos of the world’s busyness, not certain if we should continue on the same path or make an uncertain turn.

There is one thing we should all be sure of, and that is God has the answers. Nothing we  encounter in this life is too hard for Him to provide a way. His way is the sure way. We won’t fail in our walk if we pray and trust His answers. Talk less and listen more, but listen to the right voice…God’s voice. You’ll know it, for He speaks with truth and light.

Psalm 86:7 “In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, For You will answer me.”

The following poem is found on page 173 of my book, Heart Written – Breaking Free:


Questions flow throughout my mind
While answers lie in wait,
Leaving me confused and torn
Because of past mistakes.

 Why can’t life be an open book
And confidence secured?
Our problems would be minimized;
Uncertainties, be cured.

 But life is full of twists and turns
Because of man’s great sin.
There is no easy way through life.
On God, we must depend.

 So, Lord, I’m trusting in You now,
As down this road, I go.
Remove all doubt that I have owned
And cause my faith to grow.

 When questions overwhelm my soul
And answers I can’t find,
I’ll rest in thought of Who You are
And leave all fear behind.

About Heart Written: Doris Hayes Gibson

My name is Doris Hayes Gibson. My life revolves around Jesus Christ, my Creator, my Redeemer, the Lord of my worship, and the Hope for my tomorrow. My passion is to illustrate God's beauty and love through poetry and song lyrics. I have created hundreds of framed poetry images. Some were gifts of encouragement; some to honor a memory of a loved one, and some were created to help someone celebrate a special occasion. After living out of state for several years, I am, once again, residing in the beautiful Upstate of South Carolina. I have three grown children, five grandchildren, and a blue tortoiseshell Burmese cat. Illustrating God's beauty and love through words of poetry is my deepest passion. Although I have always enjoyed writing, it wasn't until 2005 (when God shut one door) that I realized He was opening the door of a tremendous opportunity to see Him use me in a spectacular way. While I do not claim any greatness of ability in any shape or form, I do know that God brought me through many trials and heartaches for such a time as this. I am now able to share this gift of poetry, with which He has blessed me, to magnify Him through blessing others. I Peter 4:10,11 states: "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen." Through my writings, my main goal is to edify Christ. If I have touched one person in a positive way through this ministry, I know it will be worth every effort I put into my work. As I have said before, "This is My Labor of Love...but God's Work of Art." My first book, Heart Written - Breaking Free, was published in November of 2012. It is my prayer that it will reach countless souls and bless lives in tremendous ways. In 2014, my second book, Heart Written - Calling Me, was published. My third and fourth books, Heart Written - Cleansing River and Heart Written - Guarded Treasures, are now available. Please visit any online bookstore to purchase my books or contact me for your personally signed copies of my Heart Written series.
