Worthy Is The Lamb ~

Oh, worthy is the Lamb,
who died for you and me
deserving of our praise
let His glory bow our knee.

For the Lamb is our salvation,
the One who saves the just
Oh, worthy is the Lamb
who makes our sins, but dust.

Oh, worthy is the Lamb,
all His sheep bless His name
He gave unto us a new life
and took with Him our shame.

For the Lamb came in love,
to save a world full of hate
Oh, worthy is the Lamb
who opened heaven’s gate!

Revelation 5:12

“Worthy is the Lamb
who was slain

To receive power
and riches and wisdom,

And strength and honor
and glory and blessing!”

I Am Delighted!

Faithful Obedience by Duane Eaves Creationswap free photo

My soul delights in those,
who trust and wait for Me
it gives My heart vast pleasure
when blind eyes begin to see.

They are My faithful servants,
to whom I will uphold
the elect that I have chosen,
I lovingly gather to My fold.

I have poured out My Spirit,
on those who are the meek
for they set their sights on Me
and My thoughts they do seek.

I am called their Lord,
in return, they are My sheep
they know to follow after Me
for their souls I guard and keep.

I have called them to righteousness,
and in My glory they rise and sing
behold all things come to pass
and new things to them I’ll bring.

Rock Wall by Joshua Poe free photo #6659 Creationswap
When upset and troubled,
with the burdens of daily stress
cry out unto the Lord
and He will surely bless.

No matter where you’re at,
no matter how close or far
cry out unto the Lord
and He’ll go to where you are.

When you feeling overwhelmed
from the storm that’s all around
cry out unto the Lord
and He won’t let you drown.

No matter how high the waters,
no matter how low the tide
cry out unto the Lord
and He’ll be right at your side.

For Jesus is your high tower,
the Rock of your salvation
and those who cry unto Him
will find true peace and elation!

Great Is His Faithfulness ~

Great is they Faithfulness used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Are you feeling depressed,
troubled and anxious
are you feeling the jitters
from being worried and nervous?

Are you suffering all alone,
with no one around to share
wondering who in this world
would ~ really even care?

Are you needing a loving touch,
a shoulder on which to cry
someone who will listen
to your every heartfelt sigh?

Are you hurting deep within,
is your heart inside breaking
is the pain so very real
that your every bone is aching?

Are you wanting relief,
do you need to be consoled
do you need the peace that comes
from arms ready to enfold?

Though you may be alone,
Jesus’ faithfulness is great . . .
no matter how heavy your heart
He can carry the weight!

Stand Firm!

Do Not Be Affraid by Megan Watson free photo # 14753
Jesus warned us of our foes,
the enemies that we will face
He told those who had an ear
to stand firm upon His grace.

He said we would be hated,
and persecuted for our belief
with promises that His own spirit
will bring our soul’s relief.

He said we would be ridiculed,
and mocked for His namesake
that our faith and trust in Him
never to renounce or forsake.

He said brothers will kill each other,
as will a father . . . his own child
children will take their parent’s life
like lunatics that have gone wild.

He warned us to not worry,
that we should endure to the end
and that our faith in Him
we must be willing to defend.

Jesus warned us of our foes,
the enemies that we will face
I don’t know about you . . .
but I can’t do it without His grace!

He Restores Souls ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
He restores my soul,

Where Will Your Journey End?

Straight is the Way used with permission Doorpost Verses on facebook
We are all on a journey,
only God knows to where
and on our own we are no good
for the wear and tear.

We often wander off,
the straight and narrow path
and find ourselves on the road
that will lead us to God’s wrath.

There is only one gate,
for us to enter in . . .
the other one will take us
to where we are sure to sin.

So if you’re on the highway,
of selfishness and greed
then pray and ask the Lord
to turn you back with great speed.

For the hour no one knows,
but this journey will soon end
and if you’re not on the narrow road
it will be hell  ~  just around the bend!

which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”

Being Renewed Day by Day ~

Renewed Day by Day ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each day I’m being renewed,
in the recess of my mind
as I read the Good Word
I find blessings of every kind.

As my faith is being restored,
my trust in God improves
I can see through my life
how the Holy Spirit moves.

A new man in me He makes,
as I put off the former things
my strength is refreshed
as I grow my eagle wings.

A clean heart He bestows,
a transformed spirit lives in me
and the joy of my salvation
I want every one to see.

Though my body is perishing,
I’m being renewed day by day
and the inward man is rejoicing
singing hallelujah and hooray!

Teach me to fly ~ Lord Jesus,
take me up and over the high sea
show me how to spread my wings
so I may swoop in next to Thee.

Lord, teach this little sparrow to fly,
take me through each dark valley
show me how to climb every mountain
so I’ll know when to glide or to rally.

Teach me to fly ~ Lord Jesus,
take me under the shadow of Your wings
show me how to hover after every storm
so I may rest in the peace that it brings.

Teach this little sparrow to fly ~ Dear Lord,
let me float on the breeze of Your love
give me the spirit like a bold eagle
and the wings of a faithful dove.

Peace of Mind ~

Direct my Paths used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook
There is a place of calm,
for all of us to find
a place to just let go
and have peace of mind.

Mine is in God’s garden,
amid His Word I do reap
promises of green pastures
the gathering of His sheep.

As I walk along the path,
I bow to smell a rose
the scent of His undying love
in my heart forever grows.

I wander down the way,
and stop to pick a verse
I’m awed by His goodness
and find myself immersed.

I sit upon the bench,
under the arbor of my soul
and rest in the knowledge,
God is always in control!

God’s Glory Declared ~

The heavens declare God’s glory,
the stars twinkle of His grace
the sun shines of His mercy
the moon glows upon His face.

They universe is His handiwork,
all was formed by His finger tips
everything came into concert
by the words from His own lips.

The planets are in constant motion,
as the earth moves around the sun
the world was created so all mankind
would receive His begotten Son.

The day was made out of the dark,
by the power of the Father of light
He gave us all His joyful radiance
so that we may have spiritual sight.

God established order in the world,
day and night will come to cease
the upheaval that the world is in
He’ll soon bring to it eternal peace.

The heavens declare God’s glory,
everything was made from His grace
His Son shines His light on the earth
so all will one day praise His face!

I’m Praying!

Praying Hands by Megan Isaacson free ohoto #13320

Lord, tonight I’m feeling sad,
melancholy and depressed
and I asking You to hear
the solemnest of my request.

My prayer is for the ones I know,
and for those I have never met
but each of them are on my heart
and their pain I can’t forget.

They are stricken with disease,
illness of every kind . . . .
some take over their bodies
others destroy their very mind.

They are hurting in places,
I have never felt before
but I can feel each twinge
and their hurt I can’t ignore.

Lord, please, please, please,
shed on them Your healing light
bring them Your peace and comfort
hold them to You ever tight!

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

To all my friends who are sick, ill, or full of disease . . .
my heart tonight is very heavy. I am praying for each of you
and I will not cease. May our heavenly Father be with you and
comfort you. I love you and will always keep you in my thoughts
but, mostly in my prayers. God bless and be with you . . . Deborah Ann


A Quiet Peace ~

Boat by Jarrod Skeggs free photo #1407

A feeling of quiet peace,
a restfulness deep inside
the presence of such calm
is when God is at my side.

Around me, there’s a storm,
that resembles a rumbling sea
yet, that feeling of tranquility
still flourishes inside me.

A feeling of quiet peace,
a serenity that flows about
the presence of His holiness
I can feel it surge throughout.

While the sea may be stormy,
as it rages through my mind
my heart is calmly reassured
His quietness is mine to find.

A feeling of quiet peace,
a calmness that far exceeds
all my wishes and desires
for, God surpasses all my needs.

Love Is ~

Masters of the Heart by Chris Kennedy free photo # 12572

Love that is . . .
patient and kind
that reaches down
touching mankind.

Love that is chaste,
pure in its thought
that humbles itself
before it’s sought.

Love that holds,
its temper still
is not angered
feels no ill-will.

Love that hopes,
is full of desire
that holds itself true
that doesn’t expire.

Love that trusts,
believes and is sure
that is forever
that which will endure.

Love that never fails,
or ceases to be
that can’t be bought
but which is free.

Love that is honest,
sincere and real
that evil and darkness
can’t conceal.

Love that comes,
from deep in your heart
that which only
the Lord can impart.

This is the love . . .
we ought to show
to each and every
person that we know!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
King James Version

“Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity,
but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things,
hopeth all things, endureth all things.”

as these babies
are left to die.

One by one,
tossed away . . .

to stop the slaughter
of each precious life.

Oh, Lord Jesus,
hear my prayer
help put an end
to their despair!

help me to see if I don’t my soul
will always hunger and thirst!

Other People’s Problems ~

Sometimes, I’m engulfed,
with other people’s problems
I try so very hard . . .

as we pray for Jesus to take
their worries and their doubt.

Sometimes, all they want,
is a friendly ear to share
the reasons for their fears
and causes for their despair.

I know all they really need,
is for me to empathize
as we try to find God’s peace
for them to internalize.

Sometimes, I’m powerless,
when listening to others needs
and the only way to help them . . .
is to get down on my knees!

“Confess your faults one to another,
and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.
The effectual fervent prayer
of a righteous man availeth much.”
