To Keep Pressing On ~

to-keep-pressing-on-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To keep pressing on,
to Jesus we need to press in
to keep on, keeping on
we need to run away from sin.

To reach the high calling,
on God we must keep our eyes
to reach up to heaven
we need to focus on the prize.

To get to the goal,
to our Savior we need to cling
to get to the finish line
we must grow our eagle wings.

To obtain the reward,
on the Holy Spirit we need to rely
to obtain the treasure
our worldly desires we must deny.

To keep pressing on,
to Jesus we must give Him our all
to keep on, keeping on
on God’s power we need to call!

~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-15

” Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended: but this
one thing I do, forgetting those
things which are behind,
and reaching forth unto
those things which are before,

I press toward the mark for
the prize of the high calling
of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us therefore, as many
as be perfect, be thus minded:
and if in any thing ye be
otherwise minded, God shall
reveal even this unto you.”

Measurements of Faith ~

if-i-could-measure-my-faith-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If I were to measure my faith,
I would see that every foot
was achieved inch by inch
as my trust in God I put.

If I were to take a yard stick,
I would see that each notch
marked all the times over me
God faithfully has watched.

If I were to take a tape measure,
roll it out as far as it could go
I would see the length of time
for my faith in God to grow.

If I were to take a measuring wheel,
push it around night and day
I would see the path it had to take
for me to find the narrow way.

If I were to measure my faith,
I could calculate just how long
it took for God to work in me . . .
to make my trust in Him this strong!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:3

“For I say, through the grace
given unto me, to every man
that is among you, not to think
of himself more highly than
he ought to think; but to think
soberly, according as God
hath dealt to every man
the measure of faith.”

To Be An Overcomer ~

to-be-an-overcomer-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To be an overcomer,
we must see sin is the problem
our faith and trust in Jesus
must remain firm and solemn.

To be an overcomer,
we must confront the obstructions
that leads to the wide road
of everlasting destruction.

To be an overcomer,
we must tackle the world head on
we constantly must be
to the Holy Spirit drawn.

To be an overcomer,
we must be willing to defeat
Satan and his armies
so not to fall for his deceit.

To be an overcomer,
we can’t stand in the shadows
we must shed God’s light
so the darkness we can expose!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:4

“For whatsoever is born of God
overcometh the world: and this
is the victory that overcometh
the world, even our faith.

Who is he that overcometh the
world, but he that believeth
that Jesus is the Son of God?”

Committing To The Narrow Way ~

commiting-to-the-narrow-way-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Having a hard time,
staying on the narrow way
too many obstacles
to get over each day?

Too many trials,
testings and tribulations
keeping you from striving
to your eternal destination?

Feeling you’ll never get,
through the narrow gate
too many challenges keeping
you from going straight?

Too many worries,
troubles and cares
too many burdens
for you to have to bear?

Well don’t get discourage,
to the narrow way commit
and be happy that you  . . .
were even able to find it!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:14

“Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

Slow to anger,
forgives swiftly
God our Father
loves us fiercely.

Patiently merciful,
favor unending
God’s compassion
for us is unrelenting.

Goodness ample,
grace abounding
God’s love for us
is perfectly astounding.

Peace abundant,
kindness plentiful
God gives hope
to the pitiful.

Slow to anger,
pursues persistently
God loves us . . .
unconditionally!

Motion Sickness ~

motion-sickness-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people suffer,
from motion sickness
some can’t stomach
waiting for God’s stillness.

Some people succumb,
to their fear and doubt
some can’t even begin
to shut the world out.

Some people fold,
under all the tension
some collapse beneath
the gloom of depression.

Some people’s faith,
goes by the wayside
some can’t stand firm
when pressure is applied.

Some people suffer,
from motion sickness
but those who trust in God . . .
calmly drift in His stillness!

Psalm 107:29

“He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof
are still.”

The Power of Sin ~

the-power-of-sin-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The power of sin,
is seductive
it’s beguiling
and additive.

The power of sin,
is heady
it’s lethal
and deadly.

The power of sin,
is attractive
it’s evil
and destructive.

The power of sin,
is toxic
it’s noxious
and caustic.

The power of sin,
you can’t control
unless God’s Spirit
is in your soul!

~~~~~~~

Romans 8:4-5

That the righteousness
of the law might be
fulfilled in us,
who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.

For they that are after
the flesh do mind the things
of the flesh; but they
that are after the Spirit
the things of the Spirit.”

To Be Happy ~

to-be-happy-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To be happy,
we need to be poor
up in heaven
our treasures we’ll store.

To be happy,
we need to be mournful
over sin
we’ll be remorseful.

To be happy,
we need to be meek
God will be
the first One we seek.

To be happy,
we need to hunger
in God’s Word
we’ll want to linger.

To be happy,
we need to be thirsty
we need to put
Jesus firstly.

To be happy,
we need to be merciful
we’ll need to live
a life purposeful.

To be happy,
we need a pure heart
from God’s ways
we’ll not depart.

To be happy,
we need to be a peacemaker
we’ll need the Holy Spirit
as our icebreaker.

To be blessed,
we need to be these things
than we’ll be happy . . .
no matter what life brings!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:3-12

Blessed are the poor in spirit:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek:
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do
hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful:
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called
the children of God.

Blessed are they which are
persecuted for righteousness’ sake:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye,
when men shall revile you,
and persecute you,
and shall say all manner
of evil against you falsely,
for my sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad:
for great is your reward in heaven:
for so persecuted they the prophets
which were before you.”

The Spirit of Truth ~

the-spirit-of-truth-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The Spirit of truth,
God gave to you
He is your guide
for all that you do.

He is full of power,
He’s mighty and strong
He’s full of light
He’ll not lead you wrong.

The Spirit of truth,
is all-wise, all-knowing
He’ll intercede for you
with His groaning.

He is everywhere,
ever-present, ever-near
He will give you courage
to face your every fear.

The Spirit of truth,
will keep pursuing you
until you see the light
of all things true!

~~~~~~

John 16:13

“Howbeit when he,
the Spirit of truth,
is come, he will guide you
into all truth: for he
shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever he shall hear,
that shall he speak:
and he will shew you
things to come.”

The Fear Factor ~

the-fear-factor-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Fear plugs the heart,
stops the flow of peace
it clogs up the calm
only God can release.

Fear hijacks the hope,
we need to be still
it robs the soul
of knowing God’s will.

Fear rips the faith,
right out from under us
it cripples the mind
of its eternal sureness.

Fear disables the joy,
of our salvation
it shuts down the bliss
of our future elation.

Fear stifles the peace,
of a mind that’s sound
it zaps the power
that in God we found!

He sees through all the layers
He knows what’s going on
for He’s a heart surveyor.

God gets you,
He has got you pegged
no matter how hard you try
you cannot pull His leg.

God gets you,
He knows your shortcomings
He gets that you have
over them some misgivings.

God gets you,
He can read you like a book
He tracks your every move
knows every wrong turn took.

God gets you,
yet, He loves you anyway
for He understands you
in every single way!

~~~~~~

Psalm 139:1-3

O lord, thou hast searched me,
and known me.

Thou knowest my downsitting
and mine uprising,
thou understandest my
thought afar off.

Thou compassest my path
nd my lying down, and art
acquainted with all my ways.”

Holy Spirit Walking

Today I’m walking,
with The Holy Spirit
today the road
we are both going to hit.

I’ll be trusting Him,
for the right directions
I’ll follow His lead
without any objections.

We’ll travel together,
without Him I won’t go
for the righteous way
I know He knows.

I’ll be looking for Him,
to steer my desires
into all that God’s will
asks and requires.

Today I’m walking,
with the Holy Spirit
to the way He shows
I’m going to commit!

The Valley of Hope ~

in-the-valley-of-hope-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is a valley,
I call hope . .
it’s where I gather
strength to cope.

I take my time,
as through it I go
praying all the way
God’s plans I’ll know.

I often rest,
along side a hill
it’s where I learn
how to be still.

I amble slowly,
around each bend
asking God all along
more faith He’ll send.

There is a valley,
hope is its name
where springs of trust
in God’s peace I claim!
