An Affair?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton


Having an affair?

I don't think many people are quite aware,

of the dangers of having “an affair.”

Adultery begins with a lustful

thought captured in the mind.

It's been part of sin's curse since

the beginning of time.

Many aren't sure how they going to react.

Until the day they're caught

in an adulterous act.

Then they're love for

their spouse is broken.

When the words; “I love you” to another, are spoken.

Soon, their home becomes upset and divided.

As their commitment and loyalty

becomes undecided.

The family they have, becomes “one huge mess.”

As their love for another

becomes obsessed.

You may find yourself in this kind of situation.

Perhaps you 're in

in “deep desperation.”

Run from this person as fast as you can!

Come to the cross and reach out for Jesus' hand.

Confess your sins to your spouse

and call on Jesus' name!

For you have only yourself

and no one else to blame.

Allow Jesus to truly be the lord of your life.

As he brings you together as a Godly

husband and wife.

Let him restore your marriage

and make it complete.

Come to him now and lay your sins at his feet.

His love in your marriage is forever and binding.

His commitment to you is a love worth finding!

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!
