Diversity... Or Perversity???
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton

"Diversity?"  Or "Perversity?"
We often hear many talking
 about "diversity."
Seldom does anyone
acknowledge... "perversity."
What's "right or wrong," has led
 to much confusion.
As our nation indulges in so much perversion.
Many don't know which direction
 they're being led.
As many have rejected what
 God has already said.
His divine and holy principles
 are being "torn apart."
We are witnessing a "division of the heart."
Our only hope and answer
 in all of this mess.
Is a way of living that is "God-blessed."
His blessings in our life is
 what we need to enjoy.
His word in our way of living.
 We should daily employ.
Without a Godly direction... 
Our nation is "off course."

God is our only refuge and defense
against this "evil force."
Now's the time to return to Christ
and engage in prayer!
His hands will keep you in his
tender mercy and care!
Though the whole earth crumbles...
and it's governments shaken.
Jesus remains our bedrock...
 and only solid foundation!

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!
