In Bondage?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By James Pemberton

In Bondage...
I know that it's easy to get
discouraged and upset.
Being in bondage...  But you
can't escape "just yet."
You've tried "everything."  And don't
 know what else to do.
Often wondering if there's "anyone"
who can "help  you through."
The things you've done. 
You asked God to forgive.
Yet struggle with this
 Each day you live.
You go to church and
put on a big "smile."
And wonder if living is really "worth the while."
You have run for prayer
 time and time again.
And yet constantly struggle
with this habitual sin.
So many times when you've tried to 
call on Jesus' name.
Yet find yourself in another
 sea of "guilt and shame."
Jesus is here now and really wants you to know.
Everything in your life. 
You must completely let go.
Start today by not thinking of things
done in the past.

Come to Jesus now!  He'll give you
 true joy that will LAST!
There is another thing you must do. 
You really should!
Begin to think on things which
are wholesome and good!
Allow God to bring to your life
the needed victory now!
He'll make  you  a brand new person!
 And HOW!

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!
