When I Wanted to Give Up... Jesus
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton


When I Wanted to Give Up…  Jesus Was There!


There was a time when I faced

 my darkest night.

And things in life,

 weren’t turning out right.


This was about the time, when things

 were falling apart!

And I began to feel a lot of stress in my heart!


I ran to Jesus!  He was there help me!

He was faithful and promised to never leave me!


He saw me, and spoke words

 of comfort, to follow!

He reminds me, that he’ll take care

 of today and tomorrow!


He lets me know that he won’t let go of my hand!

Everything I’m going through…

 He understands!


He turned back the problems that were overwhelming!

 I began see what things my life, are becoming!


I have a relationship with Jesus, like never before!

He gave me peace and hope!  And much more!


I’m glad I have such a wonderful

 friend like this!

His love and joy…  I don’t want to miss!


Thank you Jesus!  You turned my life around!

And planted my life on a solid ground!


You’re all I want!  And all I’ve needed!

With you as my Lord, my life is completed!

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!
