Should Have’s and Only If’s . . .

Pressing on For Jesus used with permission IBible Verses on facebook

God doesn’t care about . . .
our should have’s and only if’s
He doesn’t nose around the past
in our mistakes, He doesn’t sniff.

He won’t dig up the wild seeds,
that in our life we have sown
He only cares from our mistakes
if in His wisdom, we have grown.

He doesn’t make our skeletons,
come back to taunt or haunt us
for when we confess our sins
He throws them under the bus.

God doesn’t sits around stewing,
over the errors we have made
He doesn’t want our minds troubled
or our hearts to be dismayed.

God only cares about our future,
where we go from here and now
and our should have’s and only if’s
He no longer wants us to avow!

Philippians 3:13
King James Version

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind, and reaching forth
unto those things which are before,”

The Fragrance of His Grace ~

The Fragrance of His Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I have smelt the rotten odor,
that living in sin brings
I’ve taken a whiff of lust
among other disgusting things.

I’ve bathed in the perfume,
of the riches of this world
I’ve sniffed around in greed
and gave decadence a whirl.

I’ve reeked of self-assurance,
on my destructive path
I’ve walked along the highway
that only leads to God’s wrath.

I was on the road to hell,
until the truth came my way
then I heard Jesus loved me
how He died for me one day.

The sweet aroma of these words,
brought me to my senses
soon I was convicted
of all my deadly offenses.

Now the fragrance of His grace,
is all that I can smell . . .
since the essence of His Spirit
in my heart, has come to dwell!

Hebrews 9:14
King James Version

“How much more shall the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit offered himself
without spot to God, purge your conscience
from dead works to serve the living God?”

My Road Map ~

I Have Hidden used with pemission IBible Verses
The Word is my road map,
that guides me along my way
leading me with great wisdom
to help me through my day.

When I am at a crossroad,
not sure of the way to go
I ask Jesus for directions
so the true way I will know.

When I find I’m too weary,
to make it down the road
I pray for His endurance
to help me with my load.

When I get off His path,
and I wander on my own
I get down on my knees
till His way for me is shown.

Yes, the Word is our road map,
the perfect guide for each of us
but we must read the scriptures
if in Jesus we’re going to trust!

and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
