Holy Spirit...I Invite You in
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by James Pemberton


Holy Spirit, Please Come In...

Holy Spirit, I ask you to be

my "invited guest."

Lately, my life's been "quite a mess."

I ask you to take complete

possession and control.

The garbage in my life...

simply must go!

The many night I have cried myself to sleep.

I now feel like I'm in a pit-

ever so deep!

Only you can bring peace to

my desperate situation.

I extend to you a heartfelt invitation!

As you renew my mind...my thoughts

and words spoken.

May my life be tender, yielded

and broken.

I will then enjoy life the way

God intended it to be.

For I need much more of you,

and a lot less of me!

Thank you for the work in my

life you're anxious to do.

I really have begun

to appreciate YOU!

Holy Spirit... you're so forgiving,

loving and kind.

You have been there for me

each and every time.

As I eat of God's word-

my daily bread.

Please mold me and use me

in the days ahead!

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!
