The Day Jesus Found Me ~

IWillCome In used with permission IBible Verses

Wondering and thinking . . .
where would I be?
If Jesus didn’t come
looking for me.

I would still be lost,
still roaming around
going whichever way
my sorry soul found.

Stumbling on happiness,
always ending up sad
so many heartaches
were mine to be had.

Caught up in regret,
fraught with pain
my rebellion and pride
were sin’s ugly stain.

Always looking for pity,
in spite of the shame
that is until Jesus . . .
called out my name.

Now I am loved
from the world I’m free
ever since that day . . .
Jesus came looking for me!

Revelation 3:20
King James Version

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:
if any man hear my voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him,
and will sup with him, and he with me.”

The Wise Still Seek Him ~

the-wise-still-seek-him-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The wise still seek Him,
they look to the Morning Star
they follow where He may lead
no matter just how far.

They come to praise Him,
to worship and adore
the wise still seek will Him
wherever they are.

The wise still offer Him,
gifts from their hearts
faith, trust and hope
on Him they impart.

They hunger and thirst,
after His righteousness
they seek the Life and Way
with wholeheartedness.

The wise still seek Him,
this Babe, the Child, their Savior
for they know He is God’s gift
of His love, mercy and favor!

Matthew 2:9-10

“When they had heard
the king, they departed; and,

lo, the star, which they saw
in the east, went before them,

till it came and stood
over where the young child was.

When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding
great joy.”

Peace, Peace!

he-is-our-peace-thumb-used with permission IBible Verses

Peace, peace the world cries,
we can live in perfect harmony
let’s claim a common ground
and rid the earth of its irony.

Peace, peace I hear them cry,
we can have total tranquility
just tolerate who and what I am
don’t speak about God‘s morality.

Peace, peace I hear them shout,
on the streets in high protest
cursing those who believe in Christ
as they beat dissent upon their chest.

Peace, peace I hear them scream,
the world can be as one
we believe in the evolution of man
not the gift of some god’s Son.

Peace, peace I hear them yell,
let us not go to war and fight
for we believe our true enemies are
those who walk in His light.

Peace, peace the world cries,
no matter where they are from
but they’re not interested in the fact
only in Jesus ~ will true peace come!

Christmas by Rode Pannell free photo #17366

Every day is Christmas,
if the Gift ~ you receive
every day there is a present
if in the Gift ~ you believe.

Every day brings new life,
if the Gift ~ you except
every day is a miracle
if the Gift ~ you don’t reject.

Every day you are offered,
the One true Gift from above
every day you can decide
to open this gift of love.

Every day comes a new hope
if you’d just ask Jesus in
every day He will love you
and bring you peace within!

I’m Getting Old ~

gold used with permission IBible Verses

My mind is still young,
my body’s getting old . . .
God keeps refining me
from silver into gold.

My strength is weak,
my hips they ache
God’s still trying in me
His image to make.

My hair is thinning,
my knees bump and knock
God continues to work
on me against the clock.

My fingers are swollen,
my toes are bent
God always reminds me
why His Son was sent.

My spine is crooked,
my ankles are swollen
God is letting me know
soon . . . I’ll be golden!

~~~~~~~

Zechariah 13:9
King James Version

“And I will bring the third part through
the fire, and will refine them as silver

tried: they shall call on my name, and I
will hear them: I will say, It is my
people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.”

Finding Christ in CHRISTmas ~

 

I can’t find Christ in CHRISTmas,
it’s like they erased away His name
replacing Him with some greetings
that just don’t mean the same.

Happy Holidays,
is just too bland and generic
although it’s sounds pleasant
it doesn’t capture the true spirit.

Season Greetings,
doesn’t express or say anything
about the life-saving reason
the season we are celebrating.

Merry Xmas,
can it get any worse?
Yet, people can say Jesus Christ
when they swear and curse.

I can’t find Christ in CHRISTmas,
the world continues to resist
the Savior born on CHRISTmas
it’s as if He doesn’t even exist!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6
King James Version

“For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:

and the government
shall be upon his shoulder:

and his name shall

The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.”

On The Wings of A Dove ~

Dove used with permission Creation Swap

Sweet Savior Jesus,
perpetual love . . .
sends me His Spirit
on the wings of a dove.

Whispers my name,
on His soaring flight
cooing to me
to be His delight.

Spreading His wings,
to shelter me in
nuzzles my heart
to get closer to Him.

Lands on my soul,
nudges me the way
I follow after Him
all of my days.

Sweet Savior Jesus,
eternal love . . .
sends me His peace
on the wings of a dove!

Song of Solomon 2:14

lusty, greedy,
and gluttonous too.

will have a fiery festivity
they’re gonna play his sinful gig
in the depth of hell’s captivity.

Restore my soul Lord,

The Gift of Love ~

For God So Loved used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Before, I received the gift,
that forever changed my life
there was no hope or peace
only torment, conflict and strife.

I walked this earth alone,
I felt lost and forsaken
it was as if I were dead
my soul someone had taken.

I lived in constant fear,
my mind was full of doubt
I felt as if the whole world
had locked and shut me out.

But, then Jesus came,
and offered to me this gift
and as I accepted it
all my worries began to lift.

He gave me hope and faith,
as my heart opened to His love
He poured down grace and mercy
from the heavens up above.

Now I walk as one of His,
no longer am I in despair
for I know my Lord loves me
and my burdens He now bares.

Before, I embraced the gift of Jesus,
I was doomed for eternal hell
now I know with my Savior
in eternity with Him, I will dwell.

Life Before Cell Phones!

Cell Phone

Homes were different,
not so long ago . . .
everyone took the time
to stop and say hello.

Dad went to work,
everyday eight to five
mom stayed at home
to flourish and thrive.

She made breakfast,
served it at the table
all gave thanks to God
for their morning staple.

Off to the school bus,
the children all went
and if they had to walk
there was no argument.

They bowed their heads,
in class rooms they’d pray
to God and their country
giving their allegiance away.

When school time was over,
homework was done
and when daddy got home
he played ball with his son.

Mom and her daughter,
prepared the family supper
when they were all finished
the kids helped with the clutter.

The family all gathered,
after the dishes were done
to talk about their day
or play games to have fun.

Off to bed they would go,
mom still tucked them all in
she listened to her children
confess to God their sin.

Life is very different,
today in our homes . . .
now that everyone has
their own cell-phones!

The Perfect Gift ~

The Gift of Grace used with permission IBible Verses

I got you a fantastic gift . . .
it didn’t cost me a thing
but oh, what joy and happiness
to you it’s going to bring.

The wrapping is nothing special,

not to toss it or push it aside.

For in it you will find grace,
mercy, hope and favor
bundled up within all the goodness

A Free Gift ~

You Can't Earn Your Way to Heaven used with permission IBible Verses

There is a CHRISTmas gift,
that needs not be wrapped
a present that is free . . .
won’t leave you strapped.

You can’t find it at the mall,
nor see it on TV
there’s no place on-line
where this gift you’ll see.

It’s available all year through,
not just at CHRISTmas time
and the best thing about it
it won’t cost you a dime.

It’s a gift undeserving,
you could never earn it
but when you try it on
it will be the perfect fit.

If you’d like this gift,
ask Jesus into your life
confess to Him your sins
put an end to your strife.

For God has given to you,
the gift of eternal grace
in our Lord and Savior
and it’s yours to embrace!

Disrobe me of my self-importance,

Help me to be a reflection,

Hearses Don’t Pull Trailers ~

Hearses Don't Pull Trailers ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Hearses don’t pull trailers,
loaded with earthly treasures
they don’t tow your worth
or your worldly measures.

They don’t carry the living,
with their prized possessions
they only bring along coffins
to the grave side processions.

You can’t take it with you,
all you’ve acquire will turn to rust
what you adore and cherish
will be left behind in the dust.

You can’t haul away your stuff,
there’s no place in heaven for it
one day all you own and love
to the world you’ll have to forfeit.

There is no trailer hitch,
attached to that black hearse
but, you can lay up your treasures
if you read and apply God’s verse.

So, don’t cling onto the things,
that you have saved up and stored
let go of them and turn to God . . .
and your soul He will reward!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20-21
King James Version

“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

No ~ Not Even One!

10 Comandments used with permission Creation Swap

Her heart was filled with lust,
her spirit was broken down
she was sought by the men
who lived all through her town.

She lived her life in darkness,
she knew she would be stoned
yet, she carried on in her sin
till her secret was made known.

They caught her red-handed,
right in the sinful act
and they brought her to Jesus
with all the details of the fact.

They asked Him to judge her,
to indict her for her sin
they even called Him their Master
in hopes a ruling they would win.

He knew she was an adulterous,
told the blood thirsty crowd so
then He said, “You without sin”
go ahead and cast the first throw.

They caught her in her sin,
they saw the crime she had done
but they could not condemn her
no ~ not even one!

A light unto the world,
to shine in the darkness
a tiny grain of salt
to rid it of its harshness.

A voice in the wilderness,
to those who are lost
a witness to salvation
bringing glory to the cross.

A tiny mustard seed,

a branch on the True Vine
to feed Your hungry herd.

Father, grant me Your mercies,
I need each and every one
if I am to be of Your service
and lead others to Your Son!

The Believer in You ~

Be Givers of Thanks used with permission IBible Verses

Praising God in our trials,
turns burdens into blessings
giving thanks for everything
makes life, less depressing.

Holding on to our hope,
turns our sorrows into joy
being grateful for our woes
is misery’s best decoy.

Praying for our enemies,
turns angry hearts around
forgiving one another
helps our faith to abound.

Offering the other check,
turns pride into meekness
following the golden rule
shows our own weakness.

Thanking God in all things,
is not an easy thing to do
but when we put our trust in Him
it’ll make a believer out of you!

In Hopeless Times ~

In Hopeless TImes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In hopeless times,
put your faith in God
for your trust in Him
He will applaud.

For desperate times,
requires His strength
to go the distance
no matter its length.

In hopeless times,
seek God’s help and aid
keep your faith intact
so not to be dismayed.

For bleak times,
require His grace
to go the distance
no matter the race.

In hopeless times,
turn to your Father
to Him you’ll not be
a pest or bother.

For troubling times,
will be more peaceful
when you let God know
in Him you’re needful.

In hopeless times,
let prayer surround you
put your faith in God
trust what He will do!

But, lift up your head,
and open your eyes
look for His saving light

For, Jesus is there,
watching out for you
He’s there to help us
in whatever we do.

So no need to panic,
fuss, rush, or sink
Jesus is our helper
the strongest link.

Things will get better,
as they always do . . .
when you let His Spirit
guide and lead you!

The Burden of Religion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, please set me free . . .
from the burden of religion
cast aside the smoke and mirrors
that are clouding up my vision.

Break down the wall of greed,
shatter the egotistical foundation
that is in Your church today
so I’ll not be led into temptation.

Sever the chains of works,
tear apart the man-made laws
crush under Your foot
each statute and every clause.

Pull me out from under,
all the whistles and the bells
take way all my earthly idols
lest I may find myself in hell.

Lord, please set me free . . .
from being just religious
for I know without repentance
there will be no forgiveness!

it makes the soul grow ill
commit your ways to the Lord

When you live in the Spirit,
love will be in your stride
and the peace God gives
you won’t be able to hide.

You’ll be patient and kind,
you’ll learn how to be meek
the Truth, Life and Way
you will earnestly seek.

When you live in the Spirit
Jesus’ heart you’ll embrace
you’ll understand the meaning
of  having faith through grace!

Walk in the Spirit,

and ye shall not
fulfil the lust of the flesh.”

The Peace of Jesus ~

God's Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

His peace, He has given you,
His peace, He leaves behind
His peace is like nothing else
you are ever going to find.

His peace is reassuring,
it is like a soothing balm
His peace fills you with joy
a sense of perpetual calm.

His peace is like the ocean,
as it ebbs upon the shore
His peace is like a rainbow
promising life evermore.

His peace is everlasting,
it will never cease or end
His peace is in knowing
He is your eternal friend.

His peace is like the dew,
settling on the early morn
His peace is like the soft face
of a child, newly born.

His peace will follow you,
throughout your entire day
His peace He has given you
He’ll never take it away!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 14:27
King James Version

“Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:

not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.”
