I've Been Hurt And Abused!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton

Dear Jesus...  I've Been Hurt and Abused...
I've been hurt so much...
I don't feel like "going on."
It feels like "everything I do turns out wrong."
I've been "abused and neglected
 so many times."
I feel like I'm a victim "of 1,000 crimes."
I've tried to talk to some people... but to no avail.
Many look at me as if "I'm destined to fail."
"Perhaps if they knew everything,
they'd extend a hand."
"If they knew what I've been through...
they'd understand."
"Dear Jesus... I hope that you'll
 forgive me if I cry."
"I don't know where else to turn."
 "I don't want to die
Please help me and my kids
 to find a new life in YOU.
I really don't know anyone else I can turn to.
I've hit "rock bottom."  There seems
 to be no way out.
I know that you care...
 and you love me without a doubt.
In the midst of a very
discouraging situation.
You've extended to me a "heavenly invitation."
You've opened up your heart
to me with loving arms.
And by your Spirit, you'll protect me from all harm.
You reached down and gave
to me a "special grace."
And have given me true love
and a smile on my face!

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!
