Like Spring ~

always-spring-in-gods-love used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, I lift up my heart,
pour Yours into mine
give me perfect peace
joy real and divine.

Fill me with love,
the hope that You bring
let Your grace permeate
like the aroma of Spring

Send me Your light,
complete in me Your will
guide and lead me along
streams calm and still.

Take from me my grief,
the throb in my pain
wash away my sorrow
like an early, Spring rain.

Cover me with mercy,
tender and sweet
until the day . . .
when we finally meet.

Lord I lift up my heart,
pour Yours into mine
let us intertwine . . .
like a  Springtime vine!

Hosea 6:3

“Then shall we know,
if we follow on to know the Lord:

his going forth is prepared as the morning;
and he shall come unto us as the rain,
as the latter and former rain unto the earth.”

Spirit Led ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Life - IBible Verses

Some mornings I lie,
awake in my bed . . .
with thoughts of You
going through my head.

I wonder what You have,
for me to do today . . .
I think about the things
You will send my way.

I consider my options,
I ponder my choices
in my head I can hear
disagreeing voices.

“Do this ~ no, do that,
maybe some of this too”
but, Lord all I want . . .
is to live to please You.

Some mornings I lie,
awake in my bed . .
refusing to get up
until I’m Spirit led.

~~~~~~~~

Micah 2:1

“Woe to them that devise iniquity,
and work evil upon their beds!
When the morning is light,
they practise it, because it is in
the power of their hand.

On Eagle’s Wings ~

eagle by Jonathan Ashcraft free photo

On eagle’s wings I soar,
higher than any kite
for, I am empowered . . .
by God’s strength and might.

Over rain-soaked clouds,
across the turbulent sea
the wings of my faith
lift and carry me.

Through the howling wind,
above each violent wave
the wings of my trust
always shield and save.

No matter the storm,
or from what direction
the wings of my belief
are my soul’s protection.

On eagle’s wings I soar,
in God’s strength and might
that is why today . . .
I fly higher than a kite!

For Your Soul ~

Praying Hands by Megan Isaacson free ohoto #13320

I know you don’t’ believe,
God created anything at all . . .
I know you don’t accept
the story of man’s fall.

I know you don’t believe
Jesus is our Lord and Savior
or that He is full of . . .
grace, mercy and favor.

I know you don’t believe,
there is a heaven or hell
I know you don’t care . . .
where in eternity, you’ll dwell.

I know you don’t believe,
there’s a moral wrong or right
I know you don’t consider . . .
with Satan we daily fight.

I know you don’t believe,
God even exists . . .
but, for your soul my prayers
will continue to persist!

from the error of his way shall save a soul from death,

Revival Today ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ If My People - IBible Verses

If only I could change,
the path man is on . . .
to life-giving waters
everyone would be drawn.

I’d show them the way,
to true and lasting peace
comes if man’s pride . . .
finally were to cease.

I’d tell them humbleness,
is not a sign of weakness
but a gesture expressing
without God, we’re  helpless.

I’d ask each and everyone,
to put all malice aside
so in their very hearts . . .
His Spirit could abide.

I’d lead them to Jesus,
who is waiting to heal . . .
each deed of bitterness
every act of ill-will.

But, I cannot do so,
all I can do is pray  . . .
for revival in our land
today and every day!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn
from their wicked ways;

then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

Into the World ~

world-changers ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I was younger,
to all, I must admit
unto worldly lusts . . .
I often did submit.

It use to be fun,
to go out and play
so much temptation
out there on display.

At times, I thought,
how could this be right?
But, in the darkness . . .
who can spot the light?

Looking back I can see,
what a mess I made . . .
for all those fun times
oh, how I have paid.

Now that I am older,
I’m on the narrow way
from its straightness
I pray never to stray.

So, to all the youth,
take this to heart
into worldly lusts . . .
don’t even start!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 4:19

“And the cares of this world,
and the deceitfulness of riches,
and the lusts of other things entering in,
choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.”

Oh, my Lord, my God,

Your goodness and mercy

You fill my life,
with purposeful meaning

You show me such kindness,
I am immensely blessed

Oh, my Lord, my God,
Savior of my very soul . . .

Oh, the great things Lord,
You have done for me
how in Your truth . . .
I have been set free.

Oh, the mighty work,
done for me on the cross
how mercy and grace
purified out the dross.

Oh, the powerful words,
You have declared
how from the grave
my spirit’s been spared.

Oh, the strong hold,
You have for my soul
how in Jesus . . .
I am made whole.

Oh, the grand plans Lord,
You have in store . . .
Your Kingdom to come
bringing peace forever more!

Children of God ~

Family free photo #11320

The children of God,
come from everywhere
you can recognize them . . .
by what they wear.

For, they are clothed,
in God righteousness
in Jesus they put on
faith and truthfulness.

The children of God,
have much in common
their trust in the Lord
is sober and solemn.

For, they are forgiven,
justified for every sin
they know Jesus’ Spirit
lives and dwells within.

The children of God,
come from every race
you can recognize them . . .
by the joy on their face!

~~~~~~~

Galatians 3:26-28

“For ye are all the children of God
by faith in Christ Jesus.

For as many of you as have been
baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

There is neither Jew nor Greek,
there is neither bond nor free,
here is neither male nor female:
for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Trials All Around ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

Trials, trials are all around,
don’t know when they’ll come
but, we can be sure of this . . .
there’ll be more than just some.

Trials, here and everywhere,
arrive in all sizes and shapes
don’t matter if big or small
from them there’s no escape.

Trials, early in the morning,
testings through the afternoon
tribulations in the evening
anytime is ripe and opportune.

Trials, putting us to the test,
trying our faith in every way
hardship, suffering, adversity
looming over us every day.

Trials, trials are all around,
they’re coming for each of us
but, with Jesus and determination
they cannot destroy our trust!

TLC Needed ~

Love is from God CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I’m in need,
of some TLC . . .
so I asking You
to send some to me.

You see now-a-days,
it’s so hard to find
I don’t think it’s on
other people’s mind.

Everyone’s so busy,
doing what they do
I’m beginning to believe
they just forgot how to.

Maybe they don’t remember,
how to dispense it out
I may be wrong . . .
but, I still got my doubts.

Lord, I’m in need,
of some TLC . . .
and I know You have
plenty of it for me!

Unleashing God’s Power ~

Prayer is Powerful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When worry starts to flood,
like a windblown heavy rain
when you’re dispirited
by anxieties constant strain.

Turn to the Good News,
and as you begin to pray . . .
You will feel God releasing
His peace straight away.

When trouble begins to blow,
like a howling nor’easter
when you’re feeling downcast
in need of a warm comforter.

Turn at once to the Lord,
rush into His loving arms
knowing they’ll protect you
from everything that harms.

When grief overcomes,
like a crashing tidal wave
when you’re disheartened
drowning in a teary grave.

Turn to the Scriptures,
no matter what the hour
and with each tearful drop
let God, unleash His power!

Life is Too Long ~

time used with permission IBible Verses

Some say that life is short,
some say it seems so long
as each day drags on
with the nights playing along.

Troubles are all around,
tribulations at every turn
hearts and minds with worry
constantly stir and churn.

Some say life is like a breeze,
some say it’s like a constant gale
with thunderous clouds striking
leaving us weak and frail.

Gusty trials and blustering tests,
the storms just keep rolling on
as another dark cloud approaches
before the first one is even gone.

But, we who know the truth,
understand life is but a vapor
no matter what people say . . .
we know it’s not in vain we labor!

~~~~~~~~~~~

James 4.14

Whereas ye know not what
shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapour,
that appeareth
for a little time,
and then vanisheth away.

1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my beloved brethren,
be ye stedfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work
of the Lord, forasmuch as ye
know that your labour is
not in vain in the Lord.

The Lyric’s of My Heart ~

The Lyric's of My Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord . . .

With what words shall I compose,
the lyrics of my heart?
I hear them in my mind,
yet, I’m not sure where to start.

Shall I arrange them in perfect order,
from the time when we first met?
Or open with the refrain of the day,
You took upon Yourself, my debt?

Shall I begin with my appreciation,
with the gratitude I have for You?
Or, perhaps I should open with my love,
ah, yes ~ that is what I ought to do.

For, to capture from within my soul,
the melody of my full expression
I would have to come up with the tune
of how Your love left its true impression.

Oh, to know what I now understand,
and to see how my love  has grown
you would have to one day meet . . .
this Man I have loved and known.

For God loved the world so,
He gave to all His only begotten Son
and that is the greatest love song . . .
this heart can sing to anyone!

” O God, my heart is fixed;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.”
