When Was the Last Time...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton


When Was the Last Time...
When was the last time... you quit
 complaining and cursin'?
And shared Christ's love
 with another person?
When was the last time... you stood up
 for what was godly and right?
And prayed your way through...
 Even if it took all night.
When was the last time... you
 proclaimed  God's Holy Word?
And preached to the many
who've never heard?
When was the last time... you were
 filled with God's power?
And actually believed...  Christ could
 come this very hour!
When was the last time.. you told Jesus
how much you love him so?
And shared his message no matter
 where you may go...
When was the last time... Jesus was the
 center of your conversation?
And have not turned your back
 on his gift of salvation...
When was the last time...  you knelt
on your knees to pray?.
Asking God to teach you a
more Christ like way...
May this be the time you give
 your life 100% to him.
And fall in love with Jesus
 "all over again..."
May this be the time you humbly
come to the cross...
For without Christ in your life...
 Everything is lost!

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!
