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!

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

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;

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!

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

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!

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!

~~~~~~~~~~

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 me in 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,

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!

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!

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

My confidence is in the Lord,

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!

Endless Love ~

Endless Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s love is endless,
we cannot measure it
in the entire universe
not all of it, would fit.

The expansiveness,
of the world around us
can’t contain all His love
it would ooze and gush.

Even in the vastness,
of the space above
could the totality of it
be filled with His love.

The earth and seas,
and all that is below
could not hold His love
for it would overflow.

God’s love is endless,
the lost cannot fathom it
but for those who know Him
it is a perfect fit!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:18-19

Cleaning Up This Temple!

All things New by Michael McFatridge free photo #11721
This Spring ~

I’m doing me some cleaning,
I’m getting rid of sin’s pollution
and the Word of God will be
my cleansing solution.

Going to go down deep,
scour the cracks and crevices
make sure there’s no hidden sin
still lurking around the premises.

I’ll need to wash away the grime,
the remaining filth and stain
need to scrub through and through
no matter how much the pain.

I’m doing me some cleaning,
I’m clearing out this temple
and Jesus is going to be . . .
my only living example!

Ungrateful People ~

Do Unto the Lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some people are ungrateful,
no matter what you do . . .
some just think they deserve
to always be catered to.

Some are unappreciative,
they show no gratitude
they have an ingrate spirit
with a thankless attitude.

Some people can’t be thankful,
for the gift of a new day
the words Thank You Father . . .
they don’t know how to say.

Some are too self involved,
caught up in their haughtiness
that they cannot see beyond
their thankless arrogance.

Some people are ungrateful,
no matter what you do . . .
but Lord, that’s okay with me
because all I do is for You!

Confused ~

live-in-the-bible_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Sometimes I get confused,
with everything I hear . . .
with so many Gospel messages
being hammered in my ear.

One says I must have works,
the other says by grace alone
still some say that for my sins
only grace with works will atone.

One says once saved always saved,
then I hear some one else say
if you want to get to heaven
Lordship salvation is the only way.

Some teach I need to be baptized,
if God, I ever want to see
some preach it’s not necessary
that eternity still waits for me.

Sometimes I get confused,
I feel tossed to and fro
but when I want the real truth . . .
into my Bible, I simply go!

No Longer Guilty ~

No Longer Guilty ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

At the foot of the cross,
my tears mixed with shame
and I felt such deep regret
as I cried out His name.

“Lord, I know my sins,
have caused You much pain
please come into my life
my soul, my heart and reign.”

Waves of guilt passed by,
one-by-one they marched on
I looked to God and praised Him
for the gift of His beloved Son.

As I prayed for forgiveness,
confessing to Him my every sin
I could feel His love and mercy
purging the shame I felt within.

I was redeemed by grace,
that day Jesus died for me . . .

He declared me ~ no longer guilty!

I Hate the Devil ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

In case you don’t know,
I really hate the devil . . .
he’s poison, he’s toxic
he’s deadly and full of evil.

He’s wicked, He’s a liar,
he’s a murderer, he’s a thief
all he brings into our lives
is torment, pain and grief.

I just can’t stand him,
he makes my stomach churn
for I know there are many
with him, in hades who’ll burn.

He’s wretched, he’s vile,
destruction is all he brings
he taunts, he tempts us
with useless worldly things.

I really hate the devil,
in case you cannot tell . . .
and I wish he was already
burning up in hell!

~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 20:10
King James Version

“And the devil that deceived them was cast into
the lake of fire and brimstone,
where the beast and the false prophet are,
and shall be tormented day and night
for ever and ever.”

Amen and Hallelujah!

Redeemed ~

Redeemed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann/image CreationSwap

Delivered, I’ve been delivered,
from the bottomless pit
pulled out, plucked away
no longer stuck in sin’s grit.

Liberated, I’ve been liberated,
from Satan’s binding chains
cut loose, unleashed
no longer does sin entertain.

Rescued, I’ve been rescued,
from the evil one who harms
separated from, released
no longer one of Satan’s charms.

Redeemed, I’ve been forgiven,
from my sins I’ve been set free
all because of the day . . .
the Lamb of God died for me!

Ephesians 1:7
King James Version

“In whom we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins,
according to the riches of his grace;”

Which Path Are You On ~

What Path Will You Take ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There are many roads,
that are ahead of us
most will lead to doubt
some will lead to trust.

There are plenty of paths,
that we can choose to take
some will lead to heaven
most hold hell, as our fate.

They are countless avenues,
that we will come upon
most will bring us down
some will keep us pressing on.

There are many intersections,
that we will come across
some will lead straight to Jesus
most lead away from the cross.

There are many freeways,
each day to travel on . . .
but, there is only one highway
that will take us to God’s Son!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 35:8
King James Version

” And an highway shall be there,
and a way, and it shall be called
The way of holiness;
the unclean shall not pass over it;
but it shall be for those:
the wayfaring men, though fools,
shall not err therein.

Saved ~

Saved ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I make no excuses,
no false pretense
I am just a sinner
I have no defense.

Born of rebellion,
conceived in sin
envy and spite
were my closest kin.

Dead in trespasses,
deceitful to the core
greed and pride oozed
out of every pore.

Disobedient to God,
just like in Eve’s story
wickedness and evil
stole all of His glory.

I make no excuses,
a sinner I am . . .
but, I’ve been saved by
the blood of the Lamb!

~~~~~~~~~

John 1:29

The next day John seeth
Jesus coming unto him,

and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh

away the sin of the world.

1 Peter 1:19
King James Version

“But with the precious
blood of Christ,

as of a lamb without blemish
and without spot:

Desensitized ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Lord, when I look around,
it’s not hard for me to find
those who reject You
in their hearts and their minds.

They live for the moment,
think nothing of the day
when they’ll stand before You
or what they’ll have to say.

They follow their own desires,
on others they impose
their freedoms and their rights
but don’t want their sin exposed.

There’s so much wickedness,
I am no longer shock to see
the things that I read about
or what I’m shown on my TV.

Lord, help me not to be,
by this world desensitized
so that to Satan’s lies . . .
I’ll still be able to recognize!

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

Romans 14:11
King James Version

“For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord,
every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall confess to God.”

A Spiritual Hill ~

Mountain BanffRon by Ron Manke free photo #5744

A spiritual hill,
a climb too high
I’m in a funk
I don’t know why.

God, isn’t listening,
to me – I fear
maybe if I scream
then He will hear.

Things are so hectic,
nothing makes sense
I feel like I’m slipping
everything’s so intense.

I must be in the dumps,
I am so low and down
no wonder I feel
that He isn’t around.

I wish it weren’t so,
I know better than this
but maybe He’s silent . . .
so His blessings I won’t miss!

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

Psalm 143:7
King James Version

hide not thy face from me,
lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.”

Loss for Words ~

worship1_bmp

Lord, my words can barely,
come together
to collaborate
to rally up
and gather
worthy expressions
of my deepest desire for You.

For they seem weak,
feeble at best
frail and faint
limping and stumbling
on themselves
to adequately convey
what You mean to me.

Words get caught,
in my throat
choking me up
they can not sufficiently
articulate
communicate
demonstrate
my love for You!

Psalm 63:3
King James Version

“Because thy lovingkindness
is better than life,

my lips shall praise thee.”

His Grace Is Sufficient ~

 

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Some people feel guilty,
some still feel the shame
for their past sin
they still take the blame.

They refuse to let go,
of their past indiscretions
so they hang on to
their former transgressions.

But, once you’re repented,
there’s no need to go back
Jesus died for all of your sins
His grace, you’ll never lack.

For, grace covers you now,
it’s covered what you’ve done
it’ll cover you all the way till
you enter into His kingdom.

So, throw away your guilt,
say goodbye to all the blame
Jesus’ gift of sufficient grace
is yours, right now to claim!

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

2 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory
in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Trust Jesus ~

Trust Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus conquered in His death,
all of your anxieties and fear
so place your trust in Him . . .
and watch your doubt disappear.

He won over your depression,
liberated you from your addictions
so place your trust in Him . . .
to heal all of your other afflictions.

He freed you from temptation,
made a way for you to escape
so place your trust in Him . . .
and your life He will reshape.

He released you from weakness,
In Him, you are now made strong
so put your trust in Him . . .
and you’ll cease from doing wrong.

Jesus conquered in His death,
what you could never do
so place your trust in Him . . .
and He’ll make a believer out of you!

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

John 11:25-26
King James Version

“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection,
and the life: he that believeth in me,
though he were dead, yet shall he live:

And whosoever liveth and believeth
in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”

Oh, The Precious Blood ~

Oh, The Precious Blood  ~ CHRISTian Poetry by deborah ann

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
grace flowing from His brow
seeps with our salvation
God’s atonement for us now.

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
love pouring from His heart
trickles of blessed assurance
only God’s mercy can impart.

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
redemption running free
droplets of His forgiveness
reconciliation for you and me.

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
justification pours from within
each drip that is brought forth
covers each and every sin

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
God’s spotless Lamb of grace
gave His life so we may live
if His sacrifice ~ we’d embrace!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:9
King James Version

“Much more then, being now justified by his blood,
we shall be saved from wrath through him.”

If Jesus Had Not Risen ~

If Jesus Had Not Risen ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If Jesus had not risen,
what sad shape I would be in
if He didn’t ascend into heaven
I would be dead in my sin.

If Jesus had not risen,
my faith would be for naught
if He remained in the tomb
my transgressions, He couldn’t blot.

If Jesus had not risen,
I would have nothing to live for
if He didn’t sit on the throne
where would I be forever more.

If Jesus had not risen,
I would be lost and miserable
if Jesus had said no . . .
my life would be unbearable.

But Jesus did rise,
so that with Him I can be
one day in paradise . . .
all because He loves me!

King James Version

“He is not here, but is risen;”
