Jesus, My LIe Is an Embarrassment!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton

Jesus...  My Life Has Been An Embarrassment!

For many years...  My life has been

an embarrassment!

Filled with hopelessness

 and discouragement!

Many things I thought I had enjoyed..

Have left in me...   A large and empty void!

Many nights, I would

cry myself to sleep.

Knowing the hole my life was in,

was very, very deep.

Then one day, I called out to God!

I wasn’t sure if he’d listen!

My family, my old church,

I was now missin'.

My family prayed for me for so many years.

I often brought them embarrassment and tears.


God...  I tried everything else...

I want to come back to you!

I need you now Jesus! I really do!

Please come into my heart,

and cleanse me within!

Set me free from all addictions and sin!

I know that you will never let go of my hand.

My whole life, on your word,

I shall now stand.

Only you can satisfy the emptiness in my soul!

 I am now complete,

satisfied, and made whole!

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!
