Those Who Love the Lord ~

Hope in a Dark World by Chris Vasquez free photo #5638

Those who love the Lord,
are not a part of this world
they hate the evil in it
they don’t give sin a whirl.

They know they are safe,
from the hand of the wicked
for, Jesus guards their life
to lust they’re not addicted.

The world is not a friend,
they know it’s their enemy
they want nothing to do
with its ungodly chemistry.

They stay out of the devils way,
into his territory they don’t go
they ask Jesus to shine His light
so in the darkness ~ He will glow.

Those who love the Lord,
in this world ~ they don’t mesh
for they know there is no joy
in the works of the flesh!

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

1 John 2:15
King James Version

“Love not the world,
neither the things that are in the world.

If any man love the world,
the love of the Father is not in him.”

There is A God in Heaven ~

There is a God in Heaven CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is a God in heaven,
He’s looking down on us
He sees the ones who doubt
notices the ones who trust.

In times of distress He sees,
man’s need for Him to impart
His help and assistance
so their red sea, He can part.

In times of persecution,
while under intense sternness
those who call upon His name
will escape, their fiery furnace.

In times of opposition,
when sentenced to a living hell
His love sets the captive free
from judgment’s prison cell.

There is a God in Heaven,
He’s ready to save us
help us through our troubles
if in Him ~ we will trust!

This Sinner ~

grace-reigns-in-life_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I haven’t seen Jesus,
but, I know Him none the less
by faith, I can see Him clearly
His love for me I profess.

I haven’t felt His touch,
His physical hand, I’ve not held
but His presence in my life
He has not hidden or withheld.

My ears haven’t heard His voice,
but, I listen for His inflections
and I can hear Him distinctly
giving me advice and directions.

I know He loves this sinner,
for He has gazed into my heart
though the world may judge me
mercy and forgiveness He imparts.

I have not heard or touched Him,
nor have I’ve seen Jesus’ face
but, one thing I know for sure
I am saved by His grace!

The Winter Soul ~

The winter of the soul . . .
is a cold and lonely season
when it doesn’t understand
the intention or the reason.

The bitter winds that come,
chills it to the marrow
with each gust that blows
it feels like a poison arrow.

The freezing rain and sleet,
seizes up its every tear
they become like icicles
encased with all its fear.

The winter soul can’t take,
the ills, the weight, the loss
unless the soul is willing
to keep clinging to the cross.

For it is in this icy season,
the soul can find His warmth
and nestle in the comfort
of what God will bring forth.

So, if the battered soul,
is to survive this frosty time
it must be willing to soar
and over each blizzard climb.

Winter in the soul . . .
is a cold and lonely season
but it can find great peace
knowing God has His reason.

Above the Roar ~

storm-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, help me navigate,
this raging, angry sea
help me to hear above the roar
the directions You have for me.

Provide for me a safe harbor,
a lifeline I can cling to
till these waves of fear
I am able to steer through.

Let Your Word be my beacon,
so I’ll not get lost in the dark
help me to see past this storm
let Your cross be my landmark.

Though the winds rage all about,
don’t let me be blown away
be the anchor of my soul
till I reach hope’s gateway.

Lord, as the fog surrounds me,
be the horn of my salvation
let Your mercy and grace
help me with the navigation!

There Will Be Times ~

worthgold-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There will be times,
we’ll go through the fire
a season of heaviness
so God, can lift us higher.

God tries us as He pleases,
puts our faith to the test
a season where we learn
what He deems for us is best.

Trials and temptation,
refines us better than gold
a season to break free
from the world’s mold.

Troubles will come,
He’ll not spare the rod
seasons like these
brings glory to God.

There will be times,
God takes us through the fire
so our faith to others . . .
will awe and inspire!

~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1.6-7
King James Version

“Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though now for a season,

if need be, ye are in heaviness
through manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious

than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire,

might be found unto praise
and honour and glory

at the appearing of Jesus Christ:”

Children Who Go Errant!

growing-old-gracefully CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When did I become the child,
and my children the parent?
What has happened to me . . .
this phenomenon ~ I should inherit?

I am not old and senile,
I still have all my useful functions
but they act as if . . .
I left my caboose at the junction.

I can still form my words,
believe I know their meaning
but it seems that my every sentence
they are constantly screening.

I still remember my phone number,
can recall my home address
but to them you would think . . .
I’ve forgotten ~ how myself to dress!

I can brush and comb my hair,
even wash my face and hands
but they act as if . . .
I should be put out to the pasture lands.

How did I get so dim-witted,
as they became way too smart
who put this silly notion . . .
into their own aging heart?

When did I become the child,
and my children the parent?
Isn’t this what the Bible calls . . .
children who go errant?

He’s Looking!

He gazes from above,
He’s looking to find
who is searching for Him
with all their heart and mind.

He sees not a one,
not one who is seeking
all have turned aside
no one for Him is looking.

He looks to the East,
their souls to Him are idle
He scans to the West
they are, their own idols.

He looks to the South,
no – not even one
He looks to the North
their hearts, He has none.

He looks and He looks,
all across the seas
but love for the Lord
isn’t in the hearts of these!

My Comfort Rests ~

jesuscomforter-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Holy Spirit, my comfort rests,
upon the bosom of Thy breast
You soothe me when I’m in need
I am calm, when to You I heed.

I call out to Thee, upon my bed,
thoughts of peace fill my head
into Thy hands my soul now rests
in Your stillness, I feel blessed.

Oh, my Comforter my fears relieve,
so Thy tranquility, I may receive
come yet closer to me as I pray
show me the truth, light and way.

Holy Spirit, my comfort rests,
You’ll not hear, my protests . . .
abide with me forever more
be my anchor, my soul’s moor!

Perfect Peace ~

keep-in-peaceCHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to know the peace of God,
to experience its perfect calm
to use His every Word
as our soothing, healing balm.

Then we’d have tranquility,
through the storms of life
we’d soar above the turbulence
riding out the winds of strife.

Oh, to have the serenity of God,
flowing from our weary hearts
to have minds engulfed in stillness
which only His Spirit can impart.

Then we’d have the faith,
to trust God in all things
and the discipline to know
the perfect peace He brings!

Our First Love ~

Let us return to our First Love,
into the arms of everlasting grace
let our steps be healed and restored
let us earnestly seek God’s face.

Let us repent from our sins,
examine ourselves in His light
let us return to our First Love
with all our soul and might.

Let us turn to the Word of God,
for our path and instruction
let us return to our First Love
for the Way and true direction.

Let us lift our hearts and minds,
give unto God our very soul
let us return to our First Love
so we can once again be whole!

Broken Wings ~

Breath Deep used with permission IBible Verses

With tattered wings,
God’s eagles fly
but they can’t soar
up too high.

For on their wings,
they carry pain
to reach new heights
would be a strain.

Broken wings,
can’t take on air
life to them
has been so unfair.

Hurt has clipped,
their wings spread
all the eagles know
is what they dread.

Eagles wings,
chained to the past
cannot take off
no matter the draft.

They need Jesus,
to set them free
from all the drama
and its misery.

Only then,
can they soar and fly
when to their past
they let it die!

His love is faithful,

Till the Clouds Blow Away ~

above-the-clouds CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Yesterday it was cloudy,
my vision was not clear
and in the gloominess
I only saw what I fear.

Everything was blurred,
nothing made much sense
my troubles looked so huge
oh, so ever immense.

With clouds of doubt all around,
the unknown was looking dim
and I knew I just needed . . .
to continue to trust in Him.

For what I cannot discern,
when I am in the dark
Jesus will show me in His time
and His light He will impart.

Yesterday it was cloudy,
tomorrow may be a sunny day
but for now I’m trusting Jesus
till the clouds blow away!

Heavenly Hugs ~

friend CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
So long my friend, I’ll miss you,
more than you will know . . .
I’ll miss the grains of grace
that in your blog, you daily sow.

I will miss your knowledge,
the Bible Studies you share
your reminding me always
in this world to be aware.

I will miss your wisdom,
the insights you’ve brought
I’ve grown in the lessons
you so faithfully taught.

You have been a blessing,
a source of my inspiration
for you’ve showered me
with love and appreciation.

You’ve been my on-line pal,
a buddy like no other . . .
it’s like God sent to me
my own blogging brother.

You will be in my prayers,
in my thoughts daily too
and I’ll ask the Lord
to cheer and comfort you.

This is not really goodbye,
for I know we’ll meet one day
and until we do my friend
I send “heavenly hugs” your way!

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

My dear blogging friend Gregory Lang has posted his last post.
My heart is sadden that He will not longer be able
to share his love for the Lord with us. I have
been so blessed by his ministry and ask you to pray with me
for God’s grace and mercy for Greg and his family.

Just a Prayer Away ~

our-prayers-do-make-a-difference CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Feeling a little depressed,
having a hard day
just remember this
hope is a prayer away.

Prayer is the key,
that unlocks our doubt
when we trust Jesus
to figure all things out.

Life in a turmoil,
can’t stand the commotion
just turn to Jesus
with prayer and devotion.

You can tell Jesus,
about your wants and needs
whether you are standing
or down on your knees.

Not sure what to do,
or the way you should go
just speak to Jesus
in your prayers let Him know.

It doesn’t matter where you are,
or if its night or day . . .
so remember this one thing
Jesus is just a prayer away!

The Road Home ~

Road to By Jared Rarick free photo #6835

When we begin to wander,
go about our own way
the Lord takes notice
knowing we will stray.

As we drift off the path,
of truth and understanding
He knows we’ve departed
from the road everlasting.

He recognizes our error,
He sees that we are inapt
to seek and find for ourselves
the road that’ll take us back.

He won’t leave us for dead,
not one soul, He’d have perish
for every one that He loves
He does forever cherish.

But, He knows we are fragile,
we can’t make it all alone
so, He sends the Holy Spirit
to help and guide us home.

He waits at the door,
to restore the wandering soul
so we can stand before Him
in faith, complete and whole!

Reaping What We Sow ~

give-me-heart-of-sympathetic-tender_ used with permission IBible Verses

If everyone followed,
the rule that is golden
then to these words
they would feel beholden.

If you want to be forgiven,
you must learn to forgive
if you want encouragement
affirmation you must give.

If you feel hurt and wounded,
in need of a gentle touch
you will need to be sensitive
when to pain, others clutch.

If need to be understood,
you must show others grace
if you want compassion
mercy you need to embrace.

If you don’t like gossip,
then watch what you say
If you don’t want to be judged,
then turn your cheek away.

If you’re in need of friends,
with sympathetic ears
yours too must be willing
to be thoughtful to all it hears.

If you want to be treated kindly,
you must first treat other’s so
for, I’ve read it in the Bible . . .
we shall reap what we sow!

Yuck!

Broken by Matt Gruber free photo #285

Lord, today I looked in the mirror,
and I didn’t like what I saw
for I looked past my wrinkles
and saw my spiritual flaws.

All that I could see,
was my selfishness and pride
from the yuck and ugliness
I couldn’t run and hide.

When will I ever learn,
to put others first . . .
Lord, how much longer
till my ego, will You burst.

My self-importance,
is haughtiness evil twin
and arrogance and conceit
to You, is just plain sin.

Lord, today I looked in the mirror,
I witnessed what others see
and I’m sad to say it’s a far cry . . .
of Your image inside me!

Trapped?

my-redeemer-livesC CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Are you feeling trapped,
caught in the devil’s snare
do you feel as if . . .
you’re not going anywhere?

Jesus can set you free,
He’s the Redeemer of your soul
the great Physician who came
to heal and make you whole.

Are you brokenhearted,
has life treated you unfair
are the burdens in your mind
just too much for you to bear?

Jesus can bring you comfort,
He is our good Samaritan
He will take away from you
the weariness of depression.

Are you parched and famished,
looking for so much more
though, in this world you’re rich
do you feel deprived and poor?

Jesus can satisfy all your needs,
for He is the Bread of Life
all those who come to Him
are no longer slaves to their strife.

Are you feeling trapped,
in need of a new destiny?
Then you need to come to Jesus
and claim your heavenly treasury!

Where Grace and Mercy Dwells ~

Where Grace and Mercy Dwells ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

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 life’s hills and dells
and go deep into my soul
where grace and mercy dwells.

The Bridge ~

There is a bridge you can take,
it leads to water’s living . . .
it’s there you’ll find peace
merciful and forgiving.

Over trials and tribulations,
it will take you across
the span of His loving hands
will lead you to the cross.

It is a bridge of assurance,
trouble waters will not last
and for you He has a future
much better than the past.

The hardships in this life,
will take faith to get through
and Jesus is the bridge linking
His Father right to you!

Run Away Bride!

Run away Bride used with permission Creation Swap

Where has Your church gone,
where are Your chosen ones?
Your name is no longer,
on their lips and tongues.

Where is their devotion,
where are their words of praise?
On their lips and tongues,
their love for You, they don’t raise.

Where have all the faithful gone,
where are they now?
On their lips and tongues,
they no longer keep their vow.

Where are the godly teachers,
who speak against immorality?
One their lips and tongues,
they preach a new-age reality.

Where has Your bride gone,
to where has it run off?
On their lips and tongues,
Your holy Word they now scoff!

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!

Free Indeed ~

he-set-the-captives-free CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He sets the captive free,
from the blindness within
releases the binds of guilt
the shamefulness of our sin.

He loosens the chains,
makes love out of hate
unshackles our burdens
eases the heavy weight.

He heals the backslidden,
freedom is now in sight
the yoke of oppression
we no longer have to fight

He scours out the darkness,
in His light, there is power
with grace and mercy
our lives, He empowers.

No longer are we slaves,
to man and his laws
now we come before God
with holy fear and awe.

Oh, what a privilege,
no longer are we bound
free indeed at last . . .
our liberty in Jesus found!

Unrelenting Grace ~

Unrelenting grace,
never gives up . . .
flows abundantly

Unremitting mercy,

flows with the blood

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.

Eternal Plans ~

every-life-matters-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Your very name is written,
on the palms of God’s hands
no one, not even the devil
can pluck you from His plans.

God is emotionally attached,
He is always thinking of you
for you there is not one thing
He is not able or willing to do.

His love for you runs deep,
you are always in His sight
He sees you through the lens
of salvation’s glorious light.

He sees through the walls,
causing your misery and pain
and into your soul and heart
He want’s to rule and reign.

Your very name is written,
etched in the scars on Jesus’ hands
He wants you to see and believe
for you He has eternal plans!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“Behold, I have graven thee upon
the palms of my hands;

God Forbid ~

God forbid, I accept His grace,
then continue in my sin
shall I not let the old man die
so He can have victory within?

Is not holiness or godliness,
a thought not just to entertain
but one that I must put on
if in Christ, I am to remain?

Is grace so freeing,
that God’s Word plays no part
or shall it be every temptation
still takes hold of my heart?

Am I not to cast off the rags,
of my unrighteousness
or do I still hold onto the filth
the fallen state of my wickedness?

God forbid, I accept His grace,
asking Him for more and more
God forbid, I continue in my sin
and expect to enter heaven’s door!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 6:2

Tears to Cheers ~

be-of-good-cheer CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When trials come at you,
from every source and way
when they sleep with you at night
and awaken with you each day.

When they come out of nowhere,
attacking you from all sides
laying their angry claws into you
shredding you apart inside.

That is when you need to go,
to the One who truly cares
to the One who promises . . .
that our burdens, He will bear.

Jesus, will take your troubles,
your worries, He will lessen
and the dilemma you are in
will become an everlasting lesson.

So, next time your trials,
have you wallowing in tears
give them all to Jesus . . .
and He’ll bring your heart cheer.

Change of Heart ~

change_your_heart_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God can take the stony-heart,
the self-centered and defiant
change it into something . . .
that is on Him, truly reliant.

He can cut out the aloofness,
of a heart set in its own way
sever the ties it has to the world
give it no more reason to stray.

He can smooth out the roughness,
in a heart made of stone
fill it with longing for all things
that come from His throne.

He can take that cold and hard,
heart beating inside of you . . .
turn it into one full of passion
give it a purpose, to all you do.

A heart of flesh God will give you,
one that lives and breathes
in you a new spirit He will put
where faith and truth breeds.

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

Ezekiel 36:26
King James Version

“A new heart
also will I give you,

and a new spirit
will I put within you:

and I will take away
the stony heart
out of your flesh,

and I will give you
an heart of flesh.”

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
to all salvation’s door.

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

Sin and temptation,
judgment and wrath
now hope and joy
on the faithful path.

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

being now justified by his blood,

we shall be saved

I Choose Jesus ~

ichoosejesus-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The world may choose,
to believe what it may
but I choose Jesus . . .
the Truth, Life and Way.

The world may pick,
one God over another
but I choose Jesus . . .
over any other.

The world may offer,
instant gratification
but I choose Jesus . . .
for eternal satisfaction.

The world may decide,
in God they don’t believe
but I choose Jesus . . .
and not to be deceived.

The world may opt for,
the desires of the flesh
but I choose Jesus . . .
to keep my soul afresh.

The world may elect,
a man to be their God
but I choose Jesus . . .
to spare me from His rod.

The world may want,
to pursue after lust
but I choose Jesus . . .
in whom I put my trust.

The world may choose,
another God over Thee
but I choose You ~ Jesus
because You first chose me!

It’s OK . . .

If God Brings You CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I told the Lord, I was beat,
just too tired to go on
He told me it was OK . . .
His strength still could be  drawn.

When I told Him, I was fearful,
feeling afraid and scared
He told me it was OK . . .
the way He has prepared.

When I told the Lord, I was nervous,
feeling panicky and tense
He told me it was OK . . .
He would come to my defense.

When I told Him, I was anxious,
full of fright and dread
He told me it was OK . . .
before me ~ He’s already gone ahead!

I am But A Sparrow ~

Sparrow Nests

I am but a sparrow,
warm and safe in my nest
my soul is at peace
in my hope, I’m at rest.

I trust in the Lord,
all  my needs He provides
when I leave my roost
He’s the one who guides.

I don’t worry what I’ll eat,
or to the next place I’ll fly
I put all my faith in Him
every day to get me by.

When from my perch,
I begin to fall . . .
He comes to my rescue
when His name I call.

I am but a sparrow,
soon with Him I’ll leave
to this eternal promise
my wings forever cleave!

Heaven’s One ~

holyspirit-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A faithful Father, a loyal Son,
a willing Spirit ~ Heavens One.

A universe, a day – a week,
an open door, for those who seek.

A tombstone covers, an open grave,
a promise kept, a world saved.

A young man’s fate, in a lion’s den,
a second coming, we know not when.

A fearful people, pass through the sea,
a cross on Calvary, sets all men free.

A woman forgiven, besides a well,
a world spinning, on the edge of hell.

A Fathers grace sent on a Dove,
a dying Son, whose name is Love ~

Let my heart pursue wisdom,

so to its instructions . . .
I’ll be eager to hear!

The Prayers of Tears ~

Tear are Prayers Too used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, I cannot find the words,
to express to you my fears
all I have to offer You
are the bounty of my tears.

Upon each and every droplet,
falling down to You like rain
are all my worldly hurts
the reasons for my pain.

Drop by drop they reflect,
the words that cannot flow
from a heart beaten down
by life’s piercing blows.

Lord, sometimes when I cry,
they’re my prayers just in tears
as I weep for the day when .  .  .
You’ll erase away my fears!

There is  this peace,
washing over me

it’s without end.

I feel a calmness,
a deep tranquility
I’m being bathed
with eternal serenity.

I know its coming,
from God up above
for, He’s drenching me
in His perfect love.

There is this peace,

So many don’t understand,

So many needs not being met,

so many not knowing how to ask
too many prayers not being prayed.

but we must learn how to ask
so our needs can be supplied!

When God Delays ~

When God Delays ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When God delays,
give Him your praise
He has a reason
for your waiting season.

When God holds back,
don’t let your hope slack
He still hears your cry
your needs He’ll not deny.

When God withholds desires,
your trust He requires
He’ll get you out of the pit
so, don’t give up or quit.

When you have to wait,
don’t take Satan’s bait
instead sing a new song
to keep your faith strong.

When God delays,
it a growing phase . . .
He’s working out His will
so wait and be still!

Psalm 40:1-3

“I waited patiently for the Lord;
and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

and established my goings.

And he hath put a new song in my mouth,
even praise unto our God: many shall see it,
and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.”

The Reason for My Hope ~

peter-living-hope CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I believe in God,
in all of His glorious creation
I believe He made the heavens
and the earth’s foundation.

I believe that man,
came from but dust
I believe it’s God’s image
He puts into all of us.

I believe that Satan,
is the cause for our fallen state
I believe it’s still his lies
he uses on us to trap and bait.

I believe that man’s heart,
has always been cold and callous
I believe it’s full of deceit
filled with ungodly malice.

I believe in Jesus,
God’s only begotten Son
I believe He died and rose again
for the sins of everyone.

I believe in redemption,
from our wicked, evil ways
I believe it’s the blood of the Lamb
that washes our sins away.

I believe in God’s love,
I believe in His grace
I believe one day
God’s judgement all will face.

I believe in Heaven,
I also believe in hell . . .
I believe for eternity it’s where
the unsaved will dwell.

I believe in the hope,
Jesus imparts in me
I believe all can be saved
if these truth they’d just see!

Until God Answers ~

When you don’t know what to do,
and His answers haven’t come to you
when you’re feeling down and out
and you’re anxious and full of doubt.

That’s the time you need to look,
for His promises in the Good Book
you’ll find the remedy for your needs
when to His Word your spirit heeds.

When your troubles take over you,
and worry surrounds all you do
when you’re down and feeling sad
and your fears just mount and add.

That’s the time you need to pray,
asking the Lord to lead the way
He’ll lead you down the right path
so His will for you, you will know.

 When waiting for answers to your prayers,
remember that God has all your cares
for He’ll never take His eyes off you
so trust in Him no matter what you do!

God Knows ~ My Everything

God knows ~ my everything,
there’s nothing I can hide
He knows my inner thoughts
He knows all about my pride.

He knows when I will leave,
He knows when I come back
He understands the pitfalls
He knows the faith I lack.

He knows what I think,
He hears everything I say
there isn’t anything hidden
my every word He weighs.

He is everywhere I go,
He is above, He is below
He is the light in my night
He is the morning’s glow.

He is my creator,
every bone He has formed
in my mother’s womb
a miracle He performed.

His mercies are countless,
numerous is His grace
His love too unfathomable
for my mind to embrace.

Oh, God search my heart,
pursue my thoughts too
so I may stand worthy
one day in front of You!

Satan’s Stumbling Blocks ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Watch out my Christian friend . . .
for the stumbling blocks Satan lays
he’ll sneak them out in front of you
to throw you off the righteous ways.

He’ll point out all your weaknesses,
in hopes that you will buckle and cave
he’ll make you feel pathetic
so to his lies you’ll become a slave.

He’ll tell you that you’re no good,
God wants nothing to do with you
he’ll throw your sins in your face
so his sham you won’t see through.

He’ll cause you to stray off the course,
with lustful thoughts for worldly things
he’ll let you think you deserve them
so you won’t know the deceit he brings.

He’ll make you question God’s love,
whether for you He really cares
he’ll tempt you with fear and doubt
for they are two of his biggest snares.

Watch out my Christian friend . . .
don’t let Satan cause you to stumble
lest the blocks he puts in your way
will cause you into his pit ~ tumble!

Worrywart ~ No More

dont-worry CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I use to be a worrywart,
fussed over everything
nervous about the day
the trouble it would bring.

My stomach would churn,
my heart would palpitate
the anxiety that I felt
I couldn’t communicate.

I was spiritually paralyzed,
filled with fright and dread
nothing that I could do
relived the anguish in my head.

I would fret about the future
where I’d go ~ where I’d be
a road of trepidation . . .
was all that I could see.

But then one day,
it all became so very clear
I didn’t have to worry
I had nothing more to fear.

Jesus, promised He’d provide,
my every want and need
He’d sustain and supply me
if His words ~ I would heed.

So, I put my faith into action,
trusting God for each day
giving Him my tomorrows
seeking Him first, when I pray.

I’m no longer a worrywart,
I’ve got my priorities right
for there is nothing to fear
if you see things in His light!

focusing on the destination

I’m seeking in my Bible,
what He has for me today
I’m asking Him to show me
His true and righteous way.

I’m going to discover,
the path that He has for me
I’m going to attempt to try it
with all my physical energy.

I’m going to seek God,
with all my heart and soul
I am going to make Him
my life’s one and only goal.

I’m going to put God first,
before anything else . . .
no one will come between us
not even my old wicked self!

Be A Foghorn . . .

newhaven-lighthouse-wave

The beacon’s light has faded,
the foghorn is now but mute
the lighthouse stands alone
on the hill of ill-repute.

Silenced now, from the left,
the warning sounds no more
the lighthouse is in the dark
upon this nation’s shaken shore.

Once a beam unto the world,
a responsibility we all shared
now the people of this republic
are caught up in Satan’s snare.

In the past we stood in honor,
to the God in whom we trust
now we offend and discriminate
with His truth on greed and lust.

The church once held the beacon,
in the palm of its blessed hand
but it no longer wants or cares
to take a bold and daring stand.

It’s time to wake up the masses,
and shine His light on our grime
for to hold back the Gospel’s truth
is a spiritual sin and crime.

Let me be perfectly honest,
my God I will always defend
for I rather be a foghorn . . .
then to be ~ this world’s friend!

Teach The Little Children ~

Teach The Little Children ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Teach the little children,
while they are still young
to give thanks to the Lord
in every song that is sung.

Teach them to pray,
for the Holy Spirit’s filling
tell them that it is more
than just a onetime feeling.

Teach them to read and study,
how God would have them go
let them know in His Word
the way He will always show.

Teach them to understand,
for them, God has a plan
let them know it’s not the same
as the world has for man.

Teach them to respect,
themselves and others too
remind them God is looking
at what they say and do.

Teach them to set their sights,
on their heavenly treasures
not the ones here on earth
reeking of worldly pleasures.

Teach them to love God,
with all their heart and soul
let them know Jesus died
so they’d be complete and whole.

Teach them not just on Sundays,
but each and everyday . . .
just how narrow is the gate
so their tender hearts won’t stray.

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me see my own depravity
show me all my iniquities

Give me the understanding,
to recognize my sinful condition
let me dwell on my wickedness
till I feel the sting of conviction.

Show me my lustful appetites,
the habits of selfishness
let me look upon my heart
till I see my own helplessness.

Let me see my sinfulness,
what’s not pleasant in Your sight
examine and judge me
for Your laws are always right.

Shut up in me Your loving grace,
lock up in me Your tender mercy
let me exercise my full obedience
till Your love flows out of me.

let me be, for You hard pressed
let me see my absolute poverty
so I may be ~ heaven blessed!

The Latter Rain ~

The Later Rain ~ CHRISTIan poetry by deborah ann

I can feel the sprinkling,
of the latter rain . . .
I can see the first drops
falling on a world full of pain.

I can tell the time is near,
by the heart-broken cries
I can hear the thunder roar
over the false prophets lies.

I can perceive the drought,
upon all nations of the land
I can envision the deadly hunger
as God releases Armageddon’s plan.

I can sense the precipitation,
of wars and rumors of every kind
I can recognize the dribble . . .
Satan’s uses on man’s mind.

I can see disease’s down pouring
as it spreads from coast to coast
I can tell of the ungodly leaders
teeming to be the Anti-Christ host.

I can hear the violent sputter,
beneath the earth’s shaky crust
I can see how sin has drenched
the world in greed and lust.

I can sense a deluge coming,
when the latter rain will fall
I can hear God’s warning  . . .
” This is your wake-up call!”

Recipe for A Happy New Year!

Take a cup of Forgiveness,
stir in some of God’s grace
then fold it into your heart
and this recipe you’ll embrace.

But, you’ll need to keep adding,
more ingredients as you go
if you plan on having a year
where Love can rise and grow.

You’re going to need Patience,
at least a cup or two . . .
if you want to have Meekness
bubbling up inside of you.

You’ll need to slowly blend in,
a heaping spoonful of Goodness
then beat it into the mixture
so you can whip up Gentleness.

Don’t forget to add a pinch of Joy,
and as you whisk it into Peace
add a dollop of Faith and Trust
and Hope you will release.

If you live in the Spirit,
you’ll need to walk in it too . . .
and if you follow this recipe
it’ll produce His fruit in you!
