I'm Coming Out! I'm Proud of Jesu
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton

Iím Coming Out!† Iím Proud of Jesus!

There are proud people ďcoming out!Ē

Yet, they have no idea what real life is about!

Many brag about a lifestyle thatís revealing.

Yet have lost Godís purpose and meaning!

Iím coming out for Jesus!† Iíve nothing to hide!

Iíve asked him to take away my sin and pride!

Of my own accomplishments...† Iíve nothing to boast!

But Iím proud of God the father, son and holy ghost!

Whatever pride we haveÖ† Weíve all sinned!

Jesus told us; ďyou must be born again!Ē

Nothing that Iíve done is worth ďbragging of.Ē

Rather, Iíve done things that Iím ashamed of!

But God reached down to where I was standing!

And filled my life with his peace and understanding!

The more I have of Jesus, the less I need of me!

His power alone is what can truly set me free!

Iím coming out for Jesus! The redeemer of my soul!

Iím going to shout it!† So the whole world may know!

Iím not ashamed of Jesus!† I am NOT!

By his mercyÖ †My sins have been blood bought!

For each step you take to GodÖ† He takes two!

Wonít you allow him to do his work through YOU?

A life of righteousness and holiness is what God is asking!

Come now!† And receive HIS life!

†Itís everlasting!

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!
