Fused ~

Trust with All Your Hear used with permission DoorPost Verses

I’ve not always understood,
the path of pain God took me on
but, I am so very grateful
for it led me straight to His Son.

For, when my heart was troubled,
and my mind was confused
I learn to lean on my Savior
and now the two of us are fused.

When my life delivered me,
so many worldly cares . . .
I found I could release them
onto Jesus with my prayers.

Now the faith I have in my Lord,
cannot ever be shaken
for, He has proven to me . . .
He’d never leave me forsaken!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 3:5-6
King James Version

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.”

God Gave ~

John 3.16 IBible Verses

God gave unto the world,
His only begotten Son
the sacrifice and atonement
for the sins of everyone.

On the cross He became,
the substitute to fulfill the law
Jesus became the  ransom
for our every wicked flaw.

He delivered us from our guilt,
and put our sins away forever
in the surrender of His life He gave
what we could not endeavor.

Now we are His people,
purchased out of His great love
sanctified and set apart
until we meet one day above!

If With Our Mouths?

Love In Action used wth permision IBible verses

If with our mouths we confess,
our faith in God above . . .
then why don’t we show others
unconditional love?

If with our mouths we declare,
Jesus is our salvation
then why with this world
do we still have a flirtation?

If with our mouths we admit,
we’ve been set free from sin
then why does Satan’s armies
still end up with the win?

If with our mouths we profess,
Jesus is the Lord of our life
then why do we still live
with discord, turmoil, and strife?

If with our mouths we assert,
we walk everyday with the Lord
then why in our hearts and minds
isn’t His Word carefully stored?

If with our own lips we worship,
and give honor to our King . . .
then why are we so detached
from the lyrics that we sing?

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 15.7-8

“Ye hypocrites,
well did Esaias prophesy of you,
saying,
This people draweth nigh
unto me with their mouth,
and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.”

Heaven 2 by  Jon Kenney free photo #5361

For my dear friend in Jesus,
Gregory Lane, who has ALS . . .
You have touched my soul in so many ways.
Your faith and strength are amazing
and I feel so blessed to have met
you through blogging.
You have shown me His grace
in ways I never thought possible
and have given me a glimpse
into my future hope and glory!
This is for you . . .   🙂

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

They’ll be no slobbering up in heaven,
no drooling or dribbling dictation
the only thing that will be seeping
will be your praise to God for salvation.

There will be no Lou Gehrig Disease,
no more tears of frustration . . .
there will only be peace and joy
everlasting life ~ will be your elation.

They’ll be no damaged neurons,
no lack of muscle control
there will only be free movement
in your new glorified soul.

There’ll be no muscle cramping,
no twitching or dropping things
there will only be a trembling
that your reverence in Him brings.

There’ll be no more feeble legs,
no more being wheelchair bound
there will only be a leaping glee
knowing Jesus is always around.

They’ll be no feeding tube,
no more liquid-bland cuisines
for there is only fine dining . . .
when you’re with the King of Kings!

Sinners Wanted ~

Sinners wanted . . .
inquire within
looking for those
willing to die to sin.

Experience needed,
in both greed and pride
looking for those
eager to be My bride.

Seeking those skillful,
in lying, murder, and stealing
looking for those
who need a heart and soul healing.

Knowledge appreciated,
in selfishness and conceit
looking for those
who need a Savior to meet.

Practice in immorality,
is not the only must
looking for those who want
to conquer every lust.

If you are interested,
come right on in . . .
I have been wondering
where you have been!

 . . . Love Jesus

Surrender Your Heart ~

Surrender Your Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

That searching in your heart,
the hunger that you feel
can only be satisfied . . .
when you know God’s will.

A life that is surrendered,
that meets His demands
will find divine direction
when left in His hands.

Maybe your life you’ve made,
a complete and utter mess of
but don’t limit what God can do
with His unconditional love.

When Jesus has your heart,
His good pleasure works in you
and the Holy Spirit’s power
will turn you into something new.

That hunger in your heart,
the thirst that you feel
only Jesus can satisfy . . .
only God’s mercy can fill!

Going Home ~

Going Home ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I know the valley is before me,
there’s nothing for me to fear
alone I’ll walk death’s path
but, God promises to be near.

His love shall be my comfort,
His strength will get me through
on the other side of the shadow
His light shines bright and true.

I will go to sleep in darkness,
awake to find eternal peace
His glory will bring me happiness
my joy will never end or cease.

The shadow looms ahead of me,
in a future time that is unknown
but, I haven’t anything to fear . . .
for, I’ll just be going home!

~~~~~~~~

“Yea, though I walk through the valley

By My Fruits. . .

Soil by Marian Trinidad free photo # 9785

By my fruits,
will I be known
by all the seeds
I have sown.

The good ones,
and the bad
the ones that take
the ones that add.

Just what will it be,
that other’s see
making them want
what’s inside me?

Will their eyes,
glimpse and know
God is with me
from the seeds I sow?

Am I strong,
or, am I weak
is it my will
or the Lord’s I seek?

Did I plant,
the seeds in love
not of mine
but, of God’s above.

Were they watered,
from the start
with God’s Word
straight from my heart?

Can they see,
the peace within
or is peace missing
because of hidden sin?

Will they see,
God’s strength and power
or has my faith
turned somewhat sour?

All these things,
I need to ask
for, there is no hiding
behind a mask.

God knows the true purpose,
and intent of my labor
so I pray He grants . . .
all my seeds His favor.

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

James 3:17-18

Grace Saw Beyond ~

God has Bee Gracious to Me used with permission from Darrell Creswell

Grace saw beyond,
the worthless and unworthy
it looked past the sin
with its unmerited mercy.

Grace saw beyond,
the bondage of the soul
it broke loose the yoke
to heal and make whole.

Grace saw beyond,
the outward behavior
it  looked past the wickedness
with its unwarranted favor.

Grace saw beyond,
the look of the proud
it recognized the helpless
standing out in a crowd.

Grace saw beyond,
the stony-human heart
it looked past the coldness
so love it could impart.

Grace saw beyond,
corruption, lust and greed
it came in the name of Jesus
so from works we’d be freed!

Turn To Jesus ~

My Hope is In You used with permission DoorPost Verses on Facebook

When the path gets too hard to follow,
and you can’t figure out which way to go
when your goings don’t take you far
turn to Jesus, and let Him know.

When your heart is over burdened,
and you feel it’s fainting, weaken beat
when life becomes more than you can take
turn to Jesus, and lay your troubles at His feet.

When your trust begins to wan,
and your faith feels like it’s all washed-out
when your assurance begins to fade and pale
turn to Jesus, and give Him all your doubt.

When you feel you’ve given it your best,
and you no longer have what it takes to cope
when there’s nothing more that you can do
turn to Jesus, and let Him restore your hope!

Be Still and Rest Assured ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Whenever you are anxious,
turn your fears over to the Lord
give  Him all your worries
then be still and rest assured.

For, He will bring you comfort,
when you learn to lean on Him
He will send His light to shine
and things will be less grim.

Whenever you are uncertain,
give Jesus your insecurity
He’ll understand your doubt
and bring to you His clarity.

For, great is His loving kindness,
He brings rest to the weary soul
and when you need a friend
He’s always ready to console .

Whenever you are anxious,
don’t keep Jesus at arm’s length
draw Him close and near
so you may find His strength!

Pressing Into The Goal ~

Track-Running-Race_Sven-Hoppe_i1 from common photo archive

It’s not about a contest,
it’s about the one you enter in
for the race that’s before you
can be full of good or full of sin.

It’s not about how fast you are,
it’s about your direction
and if to the Gospel of grace
you will make a connection.

It’s not about the time you run,
it’s about pressing into the goal
and if you follow after Jesus
with all your heart and soul.

It’s not about the finish line,
it’s about how close you come
to the mark of a higher calling
and the glory of God’s kingdom.

It’s not about the winning,
it’s about your defeat and loss
and if you gained true knowledge
of why Christ died on the cross!

Born in a state of rebellion,
all wanting to go his own way
no, not one ~ seeks the Lord
all the sheep have gone astray.

Born with a sinful condition,
all think they have what it takes
no, not one ~ seeks the Lord
no one sees their own mistakes.

Born with a stubborn heart,
all know what is right or wrong
No, not one ~ seeks the Lord
no one hears redemption’s song.

Born with a disobedient soul,
all think they are fine and good
no, not one ~ seeks the Lord,
no one does what they should.

All have turned from the Lord,
all have gone their own way
but, by the grace of our Savior
each one can be saved today!

I am Fully Persuaded ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is nothing,
that stands in my way
there is no one person
that’ll cause me to sway.

For, I’ve been won over,
I am certain and I’m sure
that for my sinful condition
there’s only one cure.

Jesus is the remedy,
for all of my afflictions
nothing can move me
from my convictions.

Not the trials in this life,
nor the test I go through
will cause God’s love for me
to ever go askew.

In good times or in bad,
in times of war or of peace
today or in the future
my assurance will not cease.

Not the storms out at sea,
nor the ones on the shore
could carry or take me away
from the One I adore.

If my world fell apart,
under a massive earth quake
my love for the Lord
it would not, could not shake.

Nothing can separate me,
I cannot be dissuaded . . .
to the love God has for me
I remain fully persuaded!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:38-39
King James Version

“For I am persuaded,
that neither death, nor life,

nor angels, nor principalities,

Nor height,
nor depth, nor any other creature,

shall be able to separate us
from the love of God,

which is in
Christ Jesus our Lord.”

are you ready to  proclaim

In The Valley ~

Tea Plantation by Matt Gruber free photo on Creation Swap

In the valley dark and deep,
amid the shadows of despair
the beast of the world hides
looking for those he can snare.

On rebellions valley floor,
where misery loves to sleep
in the fields of hopelessness
lies the defiant little sheep.

Pastures once green and lush,
now covered with sin’s sludge
the wayward one is frightened
to meet its eternal Judge.

The rush of life-giving waters,
arouses the backslidden one
a soul entrenched in darkness
sobs for the light of the Son.

In the valley dark and deep,
the errant one turns to God
the beast of the world flees
to find another soul to trod.

Out of the shadows it emerges,
into pastures once more green
the wayward sheep now rests
on His mercy, it now leans.

In the valley deep and dark,
lies more defiant little sheep
and for each one of them
the Good Shepherd weeps.

If you are a rebellious one,
if you too have lost your way
come to where His mercy flows
and return to Him today!

In His Hands ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes problems come,
changing all our plans . . .
making it ever clearer
all things are in God’s hands.

Hands that long to hold,
to comfort and to console
hands that want to heal
the ache within the soul.

Hands that desire to reach,
far into the heart and mind
hands that hold perfect peace
for anxious ones to find.

Hands that crave to embrace,
grieving hearts in the night
hands that hunger to lead
the lost into His saving light.

Hands that are capable,
hands confident and sure
hands that calm the storms
hands that holds life’s cure.

Sometimes problems come,
and we must change our plans
so that we may come to rest . . .
in His almighty hands!

When Jesus Reigns!

Kingdom Nathan Furr free photo #12438

When the cares of my heart are many,
when they bog me down with fear
I look to Jesus for comfort
and His love, brings my spirit cheer.

When the worries of my soul are many,
when they take their grip on me
I look to God’s Word for comfort
and His grace, is all I see.

When the anxieties of my mind are many,
when they take from me my peace
I look to the Holy Spirit for comfort
and His calm, gives my thoughts release.

When the woes of the world get to me,
when they dredge up the worst of mankind
I look to the throne up in heaven . . .
and know all things ~ God has designed.

When His Kingdom appears on earth,
when Jesus comes to rule and to reign
I know He will dry every tear
and He put an end to all of this pain!

Give me the voice of an angel,

His love for you remains
throughout all your days.

People please, people offend,
but God will not let you down
He promises never to leave
for you He is always around.

People help, people hinder,

He is your soothing balm
your soul’s healing ointment.

People come, people go,
but God’s love stays forever true
your name is in His Book of Life . . .
because Jesus first loved you!

Through it All ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Through the mountain,
God led me
through the hardships
He supplied me.

Through the darkness,
God directed me
through the uncertainties
He never left me.

Though the high waters,
God brought me
through the sorrow
He comforted me.

Through the storms,
God protected me
through the heartache
He cared for me.

Through the desert,
God guided me
through the loneliness
He loved me.

Through the valley,
God carried me
through the grief
He shouldered me.

Through the wilderness,
God was with me
through all of my doubts . . .
He waited for me!

Hand molded,
grace’s transformation
renewed in His love
by His sanctification!

Who You Gonna Call?

phone-call-standing used with permission

I got me a direct connection,
don’t need to call nine-one-one
for I have a straight line . . .
to the Three-in-One.

When my heart is troubled,
Jesus promises to be there
to answer my cry for help
so my burdens He can bear.

When I’m feeling anxious,
I have nothing to fear
for the Holy Spirit
is always close and near.

When I’m all alone,
I call upon God’s grace
He always has an answer
for the loneliness I face.

I don’t need a cell phone,
don’t need to text or tweet
I just call upon my Lord
lay my burdens at His feet!

Lessons To Be Taught ~

Plans of the Lord used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Oh, conflicted soul be quieted,
don’t you know it’s for naught
battles won ~ battles lost
are lessons being taught.

To the youth as you once were,
the fight today is still the same
just a different time in space
with a new and modern name.

Speak the truth do not deny,
the war that goes on and on
from generation to generation
or else the conflict won’t be won.

Rebellion is the ammunition,
pride and greed the smoking gun
tis the same war against the Lord
as when the world first begun.

Lead the way, light the path,
guide the youth before they turn
to the world for their escape
lest in hell ~ they shall burn!

The Sea of Faith!

Fish In Bow free common use image
My life is like a fish bowl,
I keep swimming around
in circles, I seem to turn
like a merry-go-round.

At times, I get so dizzy,
that I am left in a daze
it’s like I am spinning
in a sea of milky-haze.

So many problems,
are whirling all around
making me so dizzy
I feel as if I’ll drown.

But, when I look over,
and see past the rim
I see the Lord telling me
it’s time to trust in Him.

Suddenly things are clear,
the waters no more dim
now there’s a sea of faith . . .
and I swim out to Him!

Mercy and Truth Have Merged ~

For God So Loved used

Mercy and truth have merged,
reconciliation is found on the Cross
righteousness and peace have kissed
God’s justice reaches to the dross.

Truth was raised from the earth,
resurrection sprung out of death
new life gives hope to every sinner
who understands His dying breath.

Love looked down from heaven,
forgiveness was imparted to every soul
grace shall make way for His steps
so in Him all can be made whole.

Mercy and truth have come together,
on the Cross ~ Jesus paid the price
righteousness and peace finally kissed
and for all ~ Christ was the sacrifice!

I Love September ~

Fall leaves free photo on Creationswap by James Cronin

I love September . . .
with all its golden leaves
I love watching as they flutter
to the ground upon the breeze.

Once brilliantly green,
clinging happily to a tree
now they fall like snowflakes
forming a golden sea.

Fresh and crisp underfoot,
my feet love to walk
on top of September’s path
where leaf’s begin to talk.

As summer drifts to sleep,
fall changes its golden color
and the full beauty of Autumn
unfolds all of its fiery wonder.

Soon the rains will come,
damping my beautiful Autumn
and the fallen leaves will melt
into Winter’s chilly slumber.

I love September . . .
with all its fallen leaves
I love how they remind me
to Jesus, I must always cleave!

Got you a lemon,

Hanging on by a thread,
starting to unravel
what once brought pleasure
on your nerves now gravel?

The pie in the sky,
has come crashing down
all of your hope and dreams
have run aground?

There’s no need to panic,
to worry yourself sick
there’s coming a new garden
where the thorns don’t prick.

So pull up your sleeves,
and dig yourself right in

and heaven sweepstakes you’ll win!

When disappointments,
come your way
and those you trusted
have turned away.

We sometimes think,

but rest assured . . .
for you He is there.

When all around you,
seems dark and gray
and you cannot see
the light of day.

We sometimes think,
God is not close at all
but rest assured . . .
He never drops the ball.

For God surly knows,
about all of our trials
with promises to turn
our tears into smiles.

So when life seems to be,
getting the best of you
rest assured Jesus is ready
to help you get through!

I thank my God for His Son
and the life He’s given me.

He’s in me, I’m in Him,
together we have peace
as one, there’s a glorious calm
that will never fail or cease.

His power in me, my power is Him,
together we are strong
He strengthens me, I cling to Him
whenever things go wrong.

Living my life with my Lord,
Him living His life in me
together we have become one
just like it was meant to be!

When I’m Down ~

Look Up tp Jesus used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Lord, when I am down,
feeling sad and blue
I look up to the heavens
for a glimpse of You.

You are the light,
that brightens my way
You are the radiance
shinning on my day.

You bring me comfort,
in the middle of night
Your blazing love
is my souls saving light.

You give me hope,
when none is around
Your kind, gentle touch
makes my heart rebound.

Lord, when I am down,
feeling sad and blue.
I look up to the heavens
and sing my praises unto You!

Psalm 30:12
King James Version

“To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee,
and not be silent. O Lord my God,
I will give thanks unto thee for ever.”
