Embrace Grace ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo ByGraceThroughFaith IBible Verses

The wonder of God’s grace,
is yours, to embrace . . .
your sins it forgives
your past, it will erase.

Grace is unmerited,
no works to perform
it’s a gift undeserved
your life, it’ll transform.

Grace brings new hope,
to the weariest of souls
for, the gospel of grace
heals and makes whole.

Grace has the power,
to make all things new
if you lack the strength
grace will carry you.

Grace seeks you out,
it knows where you are
for the grace of God
is never very far.

The wonder of God’s grace,
is free for the asking . . .
if you embrace, grace by faith
it will be ever-lasting!

Ephesians 2:8

” For by grace are ye saved through faith
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Growing in Grace ~

~ CHRISTitan poetry by deborahann ~grow-in-grace 2 IBible Verses

Each day we need to grow,
in the power of God’s grace. . .
for it is full of mercy
all malice, it will erase.

We need to utilize it,
on an hourly basis . . .
it will make us humble
charitable and generous.

It enriches our souls,
empowering us to live . . .
with Godly compassion
enabling us to forgive.

We need to seek it out,
in our daily prayer . . .
for, the grace God gives
is free, for us to share.

The wisdom of God’s grace,
each day we need to grow
so our faith in Jesus . . .
others, will want to know!

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord

By His Grace ~

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Sometimes, it’s hard to get up,
to greet a brand new day
sometimes, I think in my bed
I should cover up and stay.

Sometimes, it’s hard to put,
one foot, in front of the other
sometimes, I ask myself . . .
why should I even bother.

Sometimes, it’s hard to dress,
to wash my face and hair
sometimes, the pain I feel
is just too much to bear.

Sometimes, it’s hard to leave,
to close and lock the door
sometimes, I don’t want to go
even to my favorite store.

But, whenever I start to feel,
today ~ I just cannot do . . . .
Jesus whispers in my ear
“My grace will get you through!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Daily Grace ~

 

He Knows How To Run ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, I need a refill,
my reserve is getting low
I need a Holy Spirit stir
from head to toe.

Going to need a boost,
a shot of endurance
I need more strength
and some temperance.

Lord, I need a lift,
a spiritual transformation
a real pick-me-up
an increase of inspiration.

Going to need a daily dose,
of all the Gospel’s truths
if I am to fight off Satan
and all his deadly troops.

Lord, I need a refill,
of Your daily grace . . .
I need some renewing
to stay in the race!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~.

Isaiah 40:31
King James Version 

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Grace Transforming

Surrounded By Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ I Bible Verses Photo

God’s grace is transforming,
if you want it to be
it will change your life
till its Christ, others see.

It’s living inside of you,
you have the power within
it’s working right now
to triumph over every sin.

You might be poor,
but, it will make you rich
for grace freely given
comes without a hitch.

It has no drawbacks,
you have all that you need
there is no hindrance
when to pride you concede.

It will teach and train you,
how to live out your days
it will lead you down the path
of the true and righteous way.

God’s grace is transforming,
it’s alive and living in you
and if you will let it . . .
it ‘ll come bounding through!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:20
King James Version

“Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound.
But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:”

His Grace Is Sufficient ~

 

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Some people feel guilty,
some still feel the shame
for their past sin
they still take the blame.

They refuse to let go,
of their past indiscretions
so they hang on to
their former transgressions.

But, once you’re repented,
there’s no need to go back
Jesus died for all of your sins
His grace, you’ll never lack.

For, grace covers you now,
it’s covered what you’ve done
it’ll cover you all the way till
you enter into His kingdom.

So, throw away your guilt,
say goodbye to all the blame
Jesus’ gift of sufficient grace
is yours, right now to claim!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory
in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

A Heart Full of Grace ~

Grace by Nathan Furr free photo #12440

When a heart is full of grace,
it is a heart that is kind
compassion for others
envelopes its mind.

It puts on humility,
wears the cloak of patience
it dresses itself with modesty
wears the robe of justice.

It is wrapped in peace,
It’s covered in forgiveness
drapes itself with love
it’s swathed in gentleness.

When a heart is full of grace,
gratitude is its garment
the Word of God . . .
is its wardrobe requirement!

~~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12
King James Version

Put on therefore, as the elect of God,
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness, longsuffering;”

Rescued ~

isaiah-41-10-hand-of-god-god-says used with permission Darrell Creswell

He came with a tender heart,
extended a loving hand
from my own misery
He helped me up to stand.

He saw that I was lost,
how my life lacked direction
He knew in the darkness
I couldn’t see the separation.

I was soiled, I was stained,
with the grime of my sin
He knew that I needed
to be cleansed from within.

He shined His light on me,
broke through the hard crust
showed me how much I needed
in Him, to believe and trust.

He was the voice of hope,
His promises I could hear
to His voice I listened
till He took away my fear.

He came with a tender heart,
rescued me with His loving hand
He gave me the gift of grace
now by faith ~ I firmly stand!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10
King James Version

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed;
for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with
the right hand of my righteousness.”

Where Grace and Mercy Dwells ~

Wilderness by Steve Kirkeby free photo

Sometimes I wander,
through the valleys of my soul
lingering near the streams of life
when I felt well and whole.

I ponder the times Jesus filled in,
the empty and void space
where His love for me flowed
like a river full of endless grace.

As I stroll along the rugged clefts,
I can see the hard times too
as I roam all around them
His mercy for me shines through.

I reflect on the days and nights,
when I thought I was on my own
but now I can see how Jesus
never once, left me all alone.

I come across the mountains,
that I had to hike up to . . .
some of them I never thought
the hard climb, I could ever do.

But there I see Jesus,
standing upon the crest
calling down to me
“Come, I’ll give you rest.”

Sometimes I like to wander,
through the hills and dells
and go deep into my soul
where grace and mercy dwells.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:17
King James Version

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted and grounded in love”

It Takes a Broken Heart ~

the-lord-is-close-to-the-brokenhearted_ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes, it takes a broken heart,
that God has to repair and mend
sometimes, it takes one crushed
by a loved one or a friend.

Sometimes, He needs a heart,
that is full of grief and pain
sometimes, it takes one mournful
filled with regret and shame.

Sometimes, He needs a heart,
suffering one blow after blow
sometimes, it takes one sorrowful
so His mercy He can show.

Sometimes, He needs a heart,
shattered and torn
sometimes, it takes one regretful
full of self-contempt and scorn.

Sometimes, God needs your heart,
broken and beaten down
so He may come into your life
and turn your world around.

Sometimes, it takes a broken heart,
that finally seeks His face
sometimes, it takes a broken spirit
to receive the fullness of His grace!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 34:18
King James Version

“The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.”

Unrelenting Grace ~

the-grace-jesus-christ_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Unrelenting grace,
never gives up . . .
flows abundantly
from hope’s eternal cup.

Unremitting mercy,
unstoppable compassion
flows with the blood
of Jesus’ undying passion.

Unavoidable forgiveness,
unchangeable love
flows down like manna
from the heaven above.

Unrelenting grace,
unyielding persistence
over came the world
to win man’s resistance.

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 13:14
King James Version

” The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ
and the love of God,
and the communion of the Holy Ghost,
be with you all. Amen.”

Justified by Grace ~

blood-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Justified by grace,
through faith alone
mercy came down
from heaven’s throne.

No longer a stranger,
separated no more
once Jesus opened
salvation’s door.

Instead of trepidation,
now there is peace
transforming love
never to cease.

Sin and temptation,
judgment and wrath
now  joy in tribulation
on the faithful one’s path.

Justified by grace,
through faith alone
Jesus is the reason . . .
ours sins are atoned!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:9
King James Version

” Much more then, being now justified by his blood,
we shall be saved from wrath through him.”
