Each Day I Live... Each Breath I B
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton


Each Day I Live...  Each Breath I Breathe…


Jesus, may I not allow something

that would bring YOU shame.

And not do something that would

dishonor your name.


May I have a daily desire

to give to you praise…

And a desire to do your

 will all of my days…


 King David enjoyed

 fellowship with you.

May I have a heart like

David in whatever I do.


Time alone with you is what

 I desperately need.

May I seek your direction,

wherever you may lead!


I need to fall in love with you

over and over again…

May I give you all of my trust. 

You’re my BEST friend!


Your awesome and mighty

works need to be told.

May I spread your message of salvation,

to the young and old!


With each passing day and

every hour that goes by.

You give living water that

never shall run dry!


Each day that I live... 

Each breath that I breathe…

Your gift of eternal life… 

I now receive!

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!
