God’s Advantage Point ~

Today I prayed,
asking God what to do
and He responded . . .
My will you need to pursue.

I asked Him how,
His will I may know
and He answered
My Word the way will show.

So I bowed my head,
and opened up my mind
to the truth I knew
I was about to find.

And there it was in print,
what He wanted of me
as my eyes opened up
His answer I could see.

Today I prayed,
and God did not disappoint
for He showed me what to do
from His advantage point!

Open Your Bible ~

Open your Bible,
it’s active and alive
filled with Godly wisdom
for your soul to thrive.

Read your Bible,
it’s God very own breath
and out of it flows
issues of life or death.

Study your Bible,
it’s filled with inspiration
for it builds faith and trust
on a solid foundation.

Pick up your Bible,
place it right in your hand
and you will find in it
what for you is God’s plan.

Open your Bible,
for in it you’ll find written
mankind will live by . . .
every word God’s spoken!

Fake Good News ~

There’s a lot of fake news,
going around today . . .
there’s also a fake Good News
leading many astray.

It’s a gospel that tells you,
with material wealth you’ll be blessed
it’s about living well here and now
and not about eternal rest.

It’s a gospel of tolerance,
with plenty of leeway
to do what you want
not what the Scriptures say.

It’s a gospel that preaches,
if it feel good just do it
don’t worry about being
convicted by the Holy Spirit.

There’s a fake Good News,
from the pulpits being spewed
for the real Gospel of Jesus
by man has been skewed!

~~~~~~

2 Peter 2:1

“But there were false prophets
also among the people, even
as there shall be false teachers
among you, who privily shall
bring in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord that
bought them, and bring upon
themselves swift destruction.”

Crowd Pleasers ~

Crowd pleasers,
filling up the pews
adapting God’s Word
with worldly views.

Changing the truth,
to delight men
not caring if God
they should offend.

Crowd pleasers,
seeking man’s approval
altering scriptures
seeing to their removal.

Seeking and wanting,
needing man’s favor
more than that of
their Lord and Savior.

Crowd pleasers,
filling up Sunday seats
and sadly God’s sheep . . .
are now being fleeced!

~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 12:32

What thing soever I command you,
observe to do it: thou shalt not
add thereto, nor diminish from it.”

1 Thessalonians 2:4

“But as we were allowed of God
to be put in trust with the gospel,
even so we speak; not as pleasing men,
but God, which trieth our hearts.”

Deep In My Heart ~

Deep in my heart,
are verses hidden
reminding me why
I am forgiven.

I refer to them,
when satan calls
so into his traps
I will not fall.

Deep in my heart,
God’s Words I keep
they comfort me
whenever I weep.

They’re full of hope,
peace and calm
they are my soul’s
soothing balm.

Deep in my heart,
Scriptures I’ve tucked
so from God’s hand
I cannot be plucked!

“Thy word
have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin
against Thee.”

Written On My Heart ~

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be written on my heart
so that from Your ways
I will not ever depart.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
in my soul be embedded
so to the narrow gate
I’ll always be headed.

Oh, Lord may Your Word,
be my constant guide
so that with You in heaven
one day I will abide.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be my only light source
so I may be filled  . . .
with Your mighty force.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be imprinted on my mind
so if I should ever stray
the way back to You I’ll find!

that I might not sin against thee.”

The Sweet Smell of Grace ~

Oh Lord, Your Word,
to me is a fragrant garden
for in it there is life . . .
and the sweet smell of pardon.

Let me find my delight,
in the aroma of Your favor
to its blood-sweetened nectar
may my heart forever savor.

Oh Lord, Your Word,
opens up like a scented bloom
its beauty catches my breath
like a bride meeting her groom.

Let me find such a love.
in the bouquet of Your grace
to its saving aroma
may my heart always embrace.

O Lord, Your Word,
like incense it takes over my senses
for the sweet scent of a dying Savior
has pardoned all of my offenses!

~~~~~~

Psalm 119:103

” How sweet are thy words
unto my taste!
yea, sweeter than
honey to my mouth!”

K.I.S.S. ~

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t get bogged down
in all the rhetoric
that keeps going around.

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t listen to the heresy
just look into your Bible
and do what it has to say.

Keep It Simple Saints,
childlike faith is all you need
trust in your First Love
and let the Holy Spirit lead.

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t get caught in the lies
discern for yourself the truth
and then only those apply.

Keep It Simple Saints,
some make salvation hard
and their misguided opinions
you will need to disregard.

Keep It Simple Saints,
it’s so easy to get tied down
by all the Scripture arguments
that for centuries . . .
have been going around!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 2:1-2

“But there were false prophets
also among the people,
even as there shall be
false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring
in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord
that bought them,
and bring upon themselves
swift destruction.

And many shall follow
their pernicious ways;
  by reason of whom the
way of truth shall be
evil spoken of.”

In My Bible ~

Somethings in my Bible I’ve found  . . .

the Word of Life
the end to strife
the mind of God
the road that’s broad
the state of man
the eternal plan
the heart of Jesus
the grace that frees us
the true Vine
the new wine
the gift of salvation
the doom of damnation
the way of hope
the how to cope
the river of pleasure
the everlasting treasure
the guidance needed
the laws to be heeded
the mercy-seat
the Savior’s feet
the schemes of the devil
the powers in high-levels
the Light
the fight
the path
the wrath
the Way
the escape
from
judgment day!

~~~~~~

2 Timothy 2:15

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.”

The Undiluted Word of God ~

The Undiluted Word of God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Give me the pure Word of God,
not the New Age diminished versions
give me the real Good News
not the ones filled with man’s perversions.

Give me the sincere Word of God,
so I can taste all of His goodness
give me the undiluted translation
not the ones supporting man’s lewdness.

Give me the solid Word of God,
so I can sink my teeth into it
give me the true meat of the Gospel
not the ones coming from man’s own spirit.

Give me the sincere Word of God,
so I may savor His mercy and grace
give me the true unaltered Scriptures
not the ones that makes me feel no disgrace.

Give me the pure Word of God,
so my soul may be nourished
give me the Holy Spirit inspired version
not the ones that man has refurbished!

It Takes Work ~

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of studying.

It takes days,
months, even years
to get rid of
our doubts and fears.

It takes praying,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of Bible reading.

It takes faith,
trust and desire
for the Word of God
in us to inspire.

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes a heart . . .
opened to receiving!

~~~~~~~~

John 6:28-29

“Then said they unto him,
What shall we do,
that we might work
the works of God?

Jesus answered and said
unto them, This is
the work of God,
that ye believe
on him whom he hath sent.”

A New Earth and Heaven ~

When I think about,
when the earth will be no more
into the Word of God I go
digging deeper as I explore.

I find throughout the pages,
the warnings God has given us
to seek His face while it can be found
and in Him, to learn to trust.

I see for generations,
man’s rebellion against God’s ways
and for the lack of faith
how we like sheep are led astray.

I come upon the verses,
when God knew what He had to do
and so He sent His begotten Son
to bring salvation to me and you.

When I think about,
when the heaven will be no more
I think about the new earth . . .
and all for us it has in store!

My Soul Thirsts ~

Lord, in the aridness,
of my heart and soul
I am thirsty for You
to reign and take control.

I long to absorb and drink,
from Your holy Word
to feel the Living Waters
in my mind being stirred.

Lord, in the dryness,
of my daily reality
I thirst for You to bring
a hopeful vitality.

I long to be nourished,
with the Truth and Life
to feel Your stilling peace
eat away my earthly strife.

Lord, my soul thirsts,
for You solely . . .
tis why I seek You
with my heart wholly!

~~~~~~

Psalm 63:1

“O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;”

Open Our Eyes Lord ~

Open our eyes Lord,
to all of Your wonder
on Your very Word
may we daily ponder.

Let us see You,
in all of Your goodness
give us an eye-full
of Your loving-kindness.

Open our eyes Lord,
to all of the splendor
of living a life . . .
to You, in surrender.

Let us always dwell,
on all that is right
give us a glimpse into
the lamp of Your light.

Open our eyes Lord,
to Your Word wondrous
so we may see how much
to us, You are generous!

A Garden Walk ~

Come walk with me Lord,
in the coolness of the day
from Your presence
let me not hide away.

Come stroll with me Lord,
through Your Word garden
to the sound of Your voice
may my ears harken.

Come walk with me Lord,
reveal to me Your will
lead me to the streams
where Living Water’s still.

Come along with me Lord,
tell me all I should know
chide me if You must . . .
so my faith in You may grow.

Come walk with Me Lord,
in the coolness of the day
take my hand in Yours
and guide me in Thy ways!

~~~~~~~~

Genesis 3:8

“And they heard the voice
of the Lord God walking
in the garden in the
cool of the day:

and Adam and his wife hid
themselves from the presence
of the Lord God amongst
the trees of the garden.”

Finding the Truth ~

When the Word of God,
is your daily bread
your spiritual hunger
will be fed.

When in your Bible,
you each day abide
your spiritual thirst
will be supplied.

When you soak up,
all the Good News
your life it’ll shape
if you so choose.

When the Scriptures,
you learn and memorize
you’ll see right through
satan’s disguise.

When you saturate,
your heart and mind
in the Word of God . .. .
the truth you will find!

~~~~~~~

John 8:31-32

“Then said Jesus to those Jews
which believed on him,
If ye continue in my word,
then are ye my disciples indeed;

And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.”

Once Again Reborn ~

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:23

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth
for ever.”

A Gospel-Driven Life ~

A Gospel-driven life,
is a life worth living
its full of power
for it knows its calling.

It’s a life full of hope,
it is Christ-driven
it knows by His grace
it has been forgiven.

A Gospel-driven life,
is one full of light
it uses God’s Word
so darkness it can fight.

It’s a life committed,
to the Truth and Way
it is Spirit-driven
it knows not to stray.

A Gospel-driven life,
sets its mind on above
it finds perfect peace
resting in God’s love.

~~~~~~

Romans 15:4

“For whatsoever things
were written aforetime

where faith and trust

Dwelling On God’s Word ~

dwelling-on-gods-word-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Let the words of Jesus,
teach you how to be wise

and your mind they’ll advise.

Let His words reflect,
daily in your attitude
for they are full of grace
joy, hope and gratitude.

Let Jesus’ life become,
one you are willing to live
for it will bring you peace
as you learn how to forgive.

Let us come together,
with our thankful hymns
let the melody of our words
reflect our love for Him.

Let the words of Jesus,
inspire in all of us . . .
to share with all we know
why in God we do trust!

The Infallible Word of God ~

the-infallible-word-of-god-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I believe God’s Word,
is completely infallible
every solitary word
every single syllable.

I believe God’s Word,
is Spirit inspired
and not one verse
should be retired.

I believe God’s Word,
in its entirety
that every chapter
has validity.

I believe God’s Word,
to be absolutely true
that not one Scripture
should be skewed.

I believe God’s word,
yes, I believe it all . . .
right from the beginning
down to the final roll call!

~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Your Navigation Tool ~

your-navagation-tool-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When into your life,
a storm blows in
before it commences
to bring turmoil within.

Open up your Bible,
it will map out for you
how to maneuver
your way through.

When in deep waters,
uncharted, unknown
before the conditions
turn into a cyclone.

Your Bible is the tool,
to help you navigate
all the heavy swells
till the waters abate.

When into your life,
a storm blows through
use the Word of God
to calm and still you!

Psalm 107:29

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

Hide and Seek ~

Hide and Seek ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God has something.
He wants me to find . . .
so I’ll be seeking Him
with all my heart and mind.

I’ll diligently be pursuing,
what He has for me
though at this very moment
it’s not too clear to see.

It’s as if I am playing,
with Him hide and seek
so I’ll  search my Bible
until to me He speaks.

As I look for Him,
throughout His Word
all kinds of revelations
in my spirit are stirred.

Oh, the things,
God has for me to find
when I seek Him with . . .
all my heart, soul and mind!

~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 4:29

“But if from thence thou shalt
seek the Lord thy God,
thou shalt find him,
if thou seek him with
all thy heart and
with all thy soul.”
