In All of My Troubles, Jesus Is The
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton

In All of My Troubles,

  Jesus Is There!


I have many troubles  in life...

I wish I could trade!

I think of both good and bad

choices that I have made.


There are troubling situations

I find myself in.

Is causing a lot of grief and

 pain deep within!


The pain I feel… I can't

"begin to explain."

To be honest with you...

has brought me shame.


Where did my life

go wrong?

I have many things,

 that don't belong!


I ask you Jesus to take total


I don't know who else to turn to...

 or where else to go.


Please come & pick up the broken

pieces that surround me.

So much of my life was empty!

But now you've found me!


In your goodness and love...

 my life shall be content.

From my wrong and sin...

 I now humbly repent!


Thank you Jesus!

For turning my life around!

YOU are the best friend

 I 've ever found!

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!
