CHRISTmas Morn Is Here ~

christmas-morn-is-here-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

CHRISTmas morn is here,
I hear the angels sing
rise up and come . . .
greet your newborn King.

Bow to your knees,
praise His mighty name
for, because of this Babe
nothing will be the same.

Oh, how Wonderful He is,
I hear the saints join in
a Savior to the world
forgiveness for our sin.

Love has come down,
from His heavenly place
hearken to the gift
of God’s mercy and grace.

Christmas morn is here,
sing ~ hallelujah ~ sing
open up your hearts . . .
to the truth Jesus brings!

~~~~~~~~

John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only
begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.”

My Gift To Jesus ~

my-gift-to-jesus-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

This Christmas . . .
after all the presents are opened,
I’m going to sneak away and give one more
I’m going to go into my prayer closet
and behind me I’m going to shut the door.

I’m going to pull away all the wrappings,
the frills and the gingerbread I hide behind
I’m going to unwrap my true wretched self
not the one that’s embellished in my mind.

I am going to take off all the ribbons,
rip off the tape and the pretty bows
I’m going to unmask my heart and soul
to a God ~ who already sees and knows.

I’m going to get down on my knees,
give Jesus the gift of my trust
I’m going to bundle myself in His love
and to His will I’m going to adjust.

I’m going to wrap myself up in Jesus,
I’m going to tie myself up with His grace
I’m going to bind myself to His Word
and everyday I’m going to seek His face!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:11

“And when they were come
into the house, they saw
the young child with Mary
his mother, and fell down,
and worshipped him: and
when they had opened
their treasures,
they presented unto him
gifts; gold, and
frankincense and myrrh.”

On This CHRISTmas Morn ~ A Re-Post ~

A promise to the world,
a child to be given
so many years foretold
so all could be forgiven.

Moonless night shining,
with the Morning Star
calling watchful shepherds
to come from afar.

Wise Men carry gifts,
meant for only a King
angels up in heaven
Glory ~ Glory ~ sing.

God became a man,
the Good News is born
begotten Son arrives
on this Christmas morn.

Our mighty God concedes,
to the wickedness of man
the Prince of Peace comes
to bridge the empty span.

Wonderful is His name,
Counselor to the meek
the Son was born of flesh
to give power to the weak.

Our everlasting Father,
knows our fallen state
so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born
sing ~ Praises to His Glory ~
on this Christmas morn!

~~~~~~~~

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 be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The
everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Away With the Manger ~ Re-posted ~

 Away with the manger,
no need for a bed
the birth of our Savor
is best left unsaid.

The unbeliever’s of the world,
look down from their nose
when the name of our Lord Jesus
on them we impose.

The masses are in agreement,
saying CHRISTmas is a mistake
but covetousness for the season
they will never forsake.

We love thee materialism,
we love thee so much
and to their credit card idols
they bow down and clutch.

Be clear to say happy holidays,
season greetings to you
but don’t mention the babes name
or you they may sue.

They bless all of their goodies,
their toys and their playthings
but want nothing to do with the gift
that the sweet baby Jesus – brings!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:12
King James Version

“And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes,

lying in a manger.

This CHRISTmas I wish you,
God’s peace and grace
a New Year full of hope
to hold on and embrace.

I pray God will give you,
all throughout the year

and all that may ail you
His stripes will heal and mend.

I wish God’s Word,

and you will trust Him
with all of your might.

Whatever Is Pure ~

whatever-is-pure-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Whatever things are pure,
that which is holy . . .
think about such things
with your heart, wholly.

For, any other thoughts,
to God are never pleasing
only to our fleshly appetites
are they really appeasing.

Whatever things are unpolluted,
that which is clean
think about such things
all else, to God is obscene.

For, that which is corrupt,
soils and defiles the soul
with things that are hard
for our minds to control.

Whatever things are eternal,
that which is everlasting
think about such things
all else, is God distracting.

For, the lusts of the world,
will only cause us grief
as they’ll pervert and distort
our faith and our belief.

Whatever things are pure,
on such things, think
any other thoughts . . .
to God, will only stink!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

” Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are pure . . .
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.”
