Heaven Bound ~

Heaven Bound ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Got me a new birth certificate,
on the day, I was born again
I was so excited to have Jesus
come into my life and reign.

I received a brand new heart,
on the day, I opened the door
inviting Jesus to come right in
not knowing what was in store.

He took a close look around,
saw what I could never see
He told me was going to form
His image right into me.

I had to give up the old life,
for the one He was to mold
He told me when He was done
I would be, as good as gold.

It took Him quite a while,
to turn my life around . . .
but now my birth certificate
says ~ I’m heaven bound!

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

John 3:5-7
King James Version

“Jesus answered,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee,

Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into
the kingdom of God.

That which is born
of the flesh is flesh;

and that which is born of
the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee,
Ye must be born again.”

A Heart For God ~

Trust the Lord with all Your Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A heart that is peaceful,
knows in God it can trust
it knows believing this
is a daily must.

A heart that is satisfied,
knows God is always there
it knows it can give Him
its every worry and care.

A heart that is content,
knows God is good
it knows He will do
just what He should.

A heart that is committed,
know God always leads
it knows He will supply
all of its wants and needs.

A heart that is devoted,
knows God loves its praise
it knows He is faithful
and follows all of His ways.

A heart that is for God,
can never go wrong . . .
for the heart that loves Him
is steadfast and strong!

and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Rules of Engagement ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Beware my Christian friend,
Satan is after you . . .
putting on the Armor of God
is the first thing you must do.

Satan’s always a step ahead,
setting up his land mines
his first rule of attack
is to mess with our minds.

He’s waiting in a fox hole,
ready to ambush you
so be sure you’re prepared
with a Scripture or two.

You must be ready,
you’re always in his range
the rules of combat
everyday he will change.

When things are going good,
it will draw his fire out
being in the Word of God
will keep away any doubt.

Beware my Christian friend,
you’re not under friendly fire
for your very soul . . .
is Satan’s one true desire!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10-11
King James Version

“Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.”

Oh, The Things I’ve Seen ~

The Grass Withers 2 ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~used with permission DoorPost Verses

I have seen morality fade,
the withering of man’s ethics
I have seen Love’s first bloom
be shattered, by the skeptics.

I have seen evil governments,
that are wicked and corrupt
I have seen terrorist bombs
on peaceful streets erupt.

I have seen earthy riches,
make the wealthiest go bust
I have seen the awful pain
due to hearts full of lust.

I have seen Satan destroy,
families with booze and dope
I have seen little children
give up all trust and hope.

I have seen the falling away,
of those who once believed
I have seen to their First Love
they no longer heed or cleave.

I have seen the fruit plummet,
far from the One True Vine
I have seen the Gospel truth
become dull and benign.

But, what I have not seen,
is for God to change His mind
His Word still gives sight . . .
to those who are ~ yet blind!

The Valley Below ~

praise-on-green-hills frre photo

Life has many up hills,
that we all need to climb
some we get over quickly
other’s take a longer time.

Some we scramble over,
other’s we have to scale
some makes us stronger
other’s leave us weak and frail.

Sometimes we suffer pain,
often all we do is cry
at times, we can’t stop asking
“Why, oh God, why?”

But no matter the ascent,
or how high we have to go
God’s promises to help us
reach the valley below!

The One True Light ~

Where there is Light CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes it’s impossible,
to keep the lights on inside
when there’s so much darkness
lurking on the outside.

Sometimes the truth,
doesn’t shine so very bright
when there’s so much gloom
that clouds up the sight.

Sometimes in the shadows,
the way seems to disappear
when there’s so much dread
lurking close and near.

But, the One True Light,
is always on ~ inside of us
when there’s so much doubt
in Jesus we can always trust!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 1:8-9
King James Version

“He was not that Light,
but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lighteth
every man that cometh into the world.”

A Prodigal Child ~

Black Sheep ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann Wikipedia
A hope renewed,
a joy emerges
when sin from soul
the Light purges.

The heart rejoices,
an answered prayer
no longer caught
in Satan’s snare.

A hope renewed,
a life forever changed
a prodigal child
no longer estranged.

A mind transformed,
the spirit set free
out from the darkness
comes a joyous glee.

A hope renewed,
a faith restored
a wandering one
now follows the Lord!

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

Choose Joy ~

choosejoy CHRISTian poetry deborah ann

Today I’m choosing joy,
I will  not be unhappy
today I’m making sure
nothing will make me grumpy.

I will not be overwhelmed,
instead I’ll be elated
no matter my circumstance
my spirit won’t get deflated.

Today I am choosing joy,
I’ll do more than just try
today I will make sure
happy tears are all I cry.

I’ll not feel sorry for myself,
or let my heart be troubled
I’ll let the gladness that I feel
burst through my worry bubble.

Today I am choosing joy,
I have the perfect remedy
today I’m going to Jesus . . .
for my happiness therapy!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Supernatural Hearing ~

The Lord Searches Every Heart~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God has supernatural hearing,
He can hear what’s in your heart
He can see the words forming
in your mind before they start.

He can hear the true intentions,
of what you’re going to say
He knows when pride and ego
are about to get in the way.

God listens to every thought,
to each word you consider
He pays close attention
to the ones harsh and bitter.

God has supernatural hearing,
He hears us before we speak
He knows that our thoughts
are often tongue in cheek!

~~~~~~~

Luke 16:15
King James Version

“And he said unto them, Ye are they which
justify yourselves before men;
but God knoweth your hearts:
for that which is highly esteemed
among men is abomination in the sight of God.”

Richer Than Most ~

Where is Your Treasure  IBible Verses
Some people need fancy homes,
the most extravagant new car
some people need jet airplanes
so they can travel near and far.

Some people need fast race boats,
vacation homes on the lake
some people need high paying jobs
so more money they can make.

Some people need elaborate cloths,
jewelry and diamond rings
some people need a stock account
and the interest that it brings.

I have none of these things,
in which to flaunt or to boast
but I do have Jesus . . .
making me richer than most!

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

1 Timothy 6:17
King James Version

“Charge them that are rich in this world,
that they be not highminded,
nor trust in uncertain riches,
but in the living God,
who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;”

One Day ~

thy_kingdom_come

One day every knee shall bow,
before Jesus, the King of Kings
one day every person will face
the judgment that He brings.

One day every mouth will confess,
Jesus is the Lord over every nation
one day God will get His due glory
for being the Author of all creation.

One day those who have loved Him,
will offer Him songs of praise
one day those who have refused Him
will account for their evil ways.

One day every person in the world,
will bow down and confess
Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior
every tongue, His name will profess.

One day Jesus will come again,
to rule and set up His Kingdom
one day the world will know peace
and the meaning of true freedom!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:10-11
King James Version

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
of things in heaven, and things in earth,
and things under the earth; And that every tongue
should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”

Come and dine with Me,

The Power of Prayer ~

Prayer is Powerful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s power in prayer,
there is a mighty force
whenever we go to
the Almighty source.

There’s hope in prayer,
it’s our defense and shield
when to God our hearts
we give to Him and yield.

There’s conviction in prayer,
it’s our eternal assurance
it helps us to run the race
with patience and endurance.

There’s joy in prayer,
it’s the means to happiness
for when we trust God
it brings His heart gladness.

There’s power in prayer,
just go to the Almighty source
there’s strength and greatness
behind His mighty force!

~~~~~~~~~~~

What things soever ye desire, when ye pray,

Experience The Cross ~

CROSS-Saves

Have you experienced the cross,
have you found in Jesus’ death
there’s new beginnings, new hope
new joy, new life, new breath.

Have you experienced the cross,
have you seen all that it can do
it cleanses, it washes, it rinses
the defiance right out of you.

Have you experienced the cross,
have you felt the power within
it restores, it renews, it repairs
the effects and damage of sin.

Have you experienced the cross,
have you found what love has done
it redeems, it forgives, it pardons
through the grace of God’s Son!

Life-Saving Transfusion ~

Life-Saving Transfusion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Precious is the blood of Jesus,
now it runs in my own veins
and courses through my body
so in my heart He may reign.

It pumps me full of grace,
as if flows into my soul
for by His stripes I am healed
in His death I’m made whole.

The crown of thorns trickles,
with mercies I don’t deserve
a life-saving transfusion . . .
with an endless peace reserve.

Each bruise and every wound,
are the markings of my sin
they ooze and seep with love
so my heart Jesus could win!

The Cross represents,
everything that I should be
compassionate and forgiving
just like Jesus is with me!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:5

“But he was wounded for our transgressions,

the chastisement of our peace was upon him;

I Want To Be Like Jesus ~

for-those-god-foreknew CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I want to be a carbon copy,
like Jesus I want to be
I want it to be His image
that others see in me.

I want to model myself,
after the life Jesus lead
I want to make it a habit
to do exactly as He said.

I want to copy His actions,
by being patient and kind
I want to be just like Jesus
in my heart, soul and mind.

I want to duplicate His every step,
to walk in all His ways
I want to be a replica of Jesus
for the rest of my days.

I want to be a carbon copy,
of mercy, hope and grace
I want others to see peace and joy
when they look at my face!

Eternal Perks ~

 

hopeeternal-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Living a godly life,
is not very popular today
it’s getting much harder
to follow the true and righteous way.

It can be very lonely,
to stand up for what is right
when you speak the Gospel truth
it becomes a lifelong fight.

It takes determination,
some good old fashion discipline
when you love the things of God
you’ll be deemed a simpleton.

Many evil things in this world,
are vying for our attention
but, we must strive to do good
so to leave a faithful impression.

It is hard to live a godly life,
it takes a lot of work . . .
but, living a life pleasing to God
comes with eternal perks!

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

Titus 2:11-13
King James Version

“For the grace of God that bringeth
salvation hath appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness
and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of the great
God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;”

Love Like This ~

Love Like This ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When my days are weary,
and my nights seem so long
where there is but a whimper
when there should be a song.

Let me remember the cross,
and all Jesus did for me
let me always be mindful
He is the reason, I am free.

When my soul is aching,
and my heart cries out in pain
let me not forget, in His death
there is everlasting gain.

Let His endless supply of grace,
always help to remind
love like this  . . .
nowhere else will I ever find!

Come to the Cross,

come to the Cross
all who have been forsaken.

For, at the Cross,
Jesus will be waiting there
for, at the Cross
He wants your every care.

Come to the Cross,
all who are anxious and fearful
come to the Cross
all who are grievous and tearful.

For, at the Cross,
Jesus brings peace and stillness
for, at the Cross . . .
there’s endless forgiveness!

I’ts A Daily Thing ~

Look to The Cross Creation Swap CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s a daily thing,
this taking up my cross
it’s about eternal gain
not worldly loss.

It’s an hourly thing,
this denying the self
it’s all about Jesus
not about myself.

It’s a moment thing,
this faithful following
it’s about pressing on
not fearful wallowing.

It’s a minute at a time,
this dying to myself thing
but, Oh what joy . . .
each day that it brings!

~~~~~~~~

My Burden Bearer ~

cast-all-your-burdens-to-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah belka
I got me many worries,
an awful lot of cares
but on my soul
they don’t wear and tear.

Problems that come my way,
I simply toss aside
in my mind
I don’t let them reside.

When I’m in a predicament,
I lose not one single hair
on my heart
they don’t give me a scare.

Everything that bothers me,
I give to my Burden Bearer
for, Jesus promised me . . .
He’d be my trouble sharer!

Exposed ~

God's Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In God’s light,
all things become clear
for it exposes the darkness
the things we should all fear.

It divulges the lies,
the secrets we hold onto
in the shadows it illuminates
the evil things we are into.

In God’s light,
sin cannot be concealed
for our every hidden thought
will be bared and revealed.

It separates the bad,
from what is honest and just
the day Light entered the world
it exposed the wickedness in us.

In God’s eternal light,
Jesus came to heal . . .
the darkness in our hearts
so His love  ~ He could reveal!

My Confidence ~ My Hope

hope-is-in-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My confidence is in the Lord,
for I know He cares for me
I place my hope in Him
not in the things, I can see.

He protects and shelters me,
in His goodness with His grace
with Him any problem
I’m able to confidently face.

I know I can count on Him,
for wisdom and for some rest
for He knows what I need
has for me only the best.

I am so very happy,
for in the Lord I have peace
His compassion never fails me
my hope in Him shall not cease!
