Perusing God’s Word~

Today I am perusing,
my Bible in my hand
with the intent . . .
to follow its command.

I’m reading carefully,
what God has to say
with the intent . . .
to listen and obey.

Today I’m pouring over,
the verses on the page
with the intent . . .
their wisdom I’ll engage.

I’m studying each word,
looking up their meaning
with the intent . . .
my soul they’ll be feeding.

Today I’m perusing,
my Bible I am scouring
for God’s Word I know . . .
I need to be devouring!

God’s Everlasting Word ~

Your Word Oh Lord,
is everlasting . . .
after all else is gone
it’ll keep broadcasting.

For it is unending,
infinitely ageless
full of life and death
to the faith and faithless.

Your Word Oh Lord,
is unchanging . . .
after all else withers
it’ll remain unfailing.

For it is living,
endlessly unwavering
full of truth and power
to the yielded and unyielding.

Your Word Oh Lord,
is tireless . . .
after all else passes
it’ll stay ceaseless!

~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:25

But the word of the Lord
endureth for ever.
And this is the word
which by the gospel
is preached unto you.

The Happy CHRISTian ~

The happy CHRISTian,
reads the Scriptures
the grace of Jesus
their mind pictures.

They find their pleasure,
not in worldly things
but in the peace and joy
His salvation brings.

They shun the world,
find in it no delight
the Word they meditate
both the day and night.

They are like a tree,
that is rooted well
for inside their soul
the Holy Spirit dwells.

The happy CHRISTian,
pursues the right way
that is why they read . . .
God’s Word every day!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 1:3

And he shall be like a tree planted
by the rivers of water, that bringeth
forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

What Have You Got ~

You can peruse your Bible,
all that you want . . .
but if you don’t apply it
what have you got?

For what good does it do,
if you don’t employ and heed
the instruction God gives
to you as you read?

You can read the Word,
all the day long . . .
but if you don’t utilize it
how can you be strong?

For once in the world,
you venture out in . . .
how will you keep from
being tempted by sin?

You can study your Bible,
till your face turns blue
but if you don’t live it . . .
what good is it to you!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 11:28

But he said, Yea rather,
blessed are they that hear
the word of God, and keep it.

How Would I’ve Known ~

Lord, I know You’re in control,
over all that I do
but, how would I know this . . .
if I didn’t first seek You?

I know I can trust You,
for my every need
but, how would I know this
if Your Word I didn’t read?

I believe You always will,
lead and guide my way
but, how would I know this
if I didn’t stop and pray?

I know for my faith,
with the devil I will fight
but, how would I know this
if I didn’t recognize Your light?

Lord, I know You’re in control,
over all that I do
but, how would I know this . . .
if I never heard about You!

The Bible Is Like A Mirror ~

The Bible is like a mirror,
it reflects yourself so true
it shows all the hidden sin
yet living inside of you.

But if you never read it,
how will you ever glean
the areas in your life
God still needs to make clean.

The Bible is like a mirror,
it reflects your heart so true
it shows what is keeping
God disconnected from you.

But if you don’t study it,
God cannot lead or direct
you to see how sinfulness
has an everlasting effect.

The Bible is like a mirror,
His reflection should be in you
but, you must apply it . . .
in your life ~ for this to be true!

1 John 3:2

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we
shall be: but we know that, when he
shall appear, we shall be like him;
for we shall see him as he is.

Dig In ~

When I read my Bible,
I dig in . . .
to see how the race
I can win.

I explore,
until I unearth
all the reasons
for my rebirth.

When I study my Bible,
I burrow in
and discover why
God hates sin.

I sift and poke,
I prod all around
so to temptation
I’ll not be spellbound.

When I read my Bible,
I dig, poke and prod
so I’ll not be ashamed
before the Lord, my God!

When I Cry to God ~

When I cry to God,
for more understanding
to His Word He sends me
for wisdom upstanding.

I open up my ears,
to what He is saying
over what He tells me
I find myself praying.

I search for the treasures,
He Word holds for me
until silvery ray’s of hope
are all I’m able to see.

As I gain more knowledge,
into my heart I tuck away
how to keep His commands
so not to be led astray.

When I cry to God,
when my ears I incline
I find my heart with His . . .
can’t help but to align!

~~~~

Proverbs 2:1-5

My son, if thou wilt receive my words
and hide my commandments with thee;
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom,
and apply thine heart to understanding;
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge,
and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest
for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou
understand the fear of the LORD,
and find the knowledge of God.

The Quench Of My Thirst ~

Your Word Lord,
quenches my thirst
especially when
I seek You first.

It fills me with hope,
as it flows through my soul
gives me peace knowing
all things You control.

Your Word Lord,
my thirst nourishes
it inspires my faith
my trust it encourages.

For, it pushes me,
to keep on keeping on
and stimulates me
to be more to You drawn.

Your Word Lord,
my soul it satiates
as my thirst for You
it motivates!

To Know God’s Will ~

To know and find,
our Father’s will for us
in His Word we must
place all our trust.

For, light and wisdom,
runs through the pages
with documented truths
throughout the ages.

To know and find,
for us our Father’s plans
the Bible we must place
right into our hands.

For, if it lays dormant,
on our dusty shelves
we will never die . . .
to our willful selves.

To know and find,
for us our Father’s will . . .
in our hearts His Word
must occupy and fill!

When Confused ~

When you’re confused,
unsure of the way . . .
when you don’t trust
what others have to say.

Read your Bible,
to clear any confusion
and God will show you
His perfect solution.

When you are unsure,
about the course to take
don’t let others push you
to the wrong choice make.

So if you want directions,
that are clear and true
pick up your Bible
and let God guide you.

For, God won’t mislead you,
like so many might . . .
so when you’re confused
go to the One True Light!

God Sent Out His Word ~

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Word
so throughout the universe
by all it’d be heard.

He gave us His Light,
so we could understand
the plan for salvation
He had for all of man.

Our hearts are enlighten,
once His Word enters in
to help us to recognize
the cause of our sin.

As we read and we study,
the Light shines brighter
and our confessions to God
makes our burdens lighter.

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Light
simply so we’d keep . . .
heaven in our sight!

John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word,

Safely Moored And Docked ~

Lord, help me not to have,
my faith rattled or rocked
rather keep me in the truth
safely moored and docked.

Let not me be carried,
by the waves of deceit
rather keep me following
in the steps of Your feet.

Lord, help me not to be,
blown by every Gospel wind
rather keep me grounded
to the truth I have within.

Let not me be confused,
by every ingenious lie
rather keep me anchored
in Your Word until I die.

Lord, help me not to have,
my faith rocked or rattled
help me to keep steadfast . . .
so I don’t become baffled!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:14-15

“That we henceforth be no more children,
tossed to and fro, and carried about
with every wind of doctrine, by the
sleight of men, and cunning craftiness,
whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

But speaking the truth in love,
may grow up into him in all things,
which is the head, even Christ:”

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!

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

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!

What thing soever I command you,

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!

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!

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!

~~~~~~

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

Scripture Mutations ~

Scripture Mutaltion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I hear about God’s love,
and tolerance
I hear about wealth
and being prosperous.

But, what I don’t hear,
theses days any more . . .
is the repentance of sin
lest it cause an uproar.

I hear about God’s love,
and stewardship
I hear about the greed
among the leadership.

But what I don’t hear,
is about sin’s liberation
for the Scriptures now have
too many mutations.

I hear about God’s love,
but not of His wrath
for no one these days . . .
wants to go down this path!

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

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!

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,

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.

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

Lord, in the dryness,
of my daily normality
my thirst is for You . . .
to bring lasting vitality.

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

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

of living a life . . .
to You, in surrender.

Let us always dwell,

Come walk with me Lord,

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!

Finding the Truth ~

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

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

When in the Word,
you are immersed
God’s power in you
will be dispersed.

When the Scriptures,
your read each day
freedom you will find
on the righteous way.

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

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!

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.

Dwelling On God’s Word ~

Let the words of Jesus,
teach us how to be wise
let them dwell in our hearts
so our minds they’ll advise.

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

Let Jesus’ life become,
one we are willing to live
for it will bring us peace
as we 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 each of us . . .
to share with those we meet
why in God we place our trust!

Your Navigation Tool ~

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!

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!

When Light Enters In ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When you have faith,
Light enters in
when you have Light
you’ll have peace within.

When you have trust,

in God you’ll abide

When you have Truth,
you will find the Way
when the Life you follow
in the Word you’ll stay.

When understanding,

the Word will clarify
just how to proceed.

When faith is released,
it ushers in the Light
releasing in you  . . .
God’s power and might!

In The Garden of My Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In the garden of my soul,
God’s Word I have sown
I’ve tilled in just the truth
so no weeds can be grown.

I water it each day,
with the verses found within
I cultivate each of them
to train me to see my sin.

I nurture and work,
the scriptures I have read
so they will grow in my heart
not lay dormant in my head.

I gather different verses,
and their roots I combine
so grace and knowledge
can begin to intertwine.

In the garden of my soul,
God’s Word I’ve propagated
and each day I make sure
it is properly irrigated!

Rx For The Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, when I’m feeling down,
when I am sad and blue
I medicate myself . . .
on the loving things You do.

Your Word becomes the Rx,
for my heavy-laden soul
it cures my depression
my sadness it consoles.

When I’m feeling hopeless,
when I am discouraged
I take a shot of Your Word
knowing I’ll be encouraged.

I inject into me Your mercy,
shoot myself with Your grace
until feelings of desperation
I no longer hold or embrace.

Lord, when I’m feeling down,
when I need a dose of inspiration
I simple go to my Bible . . .
to get my daily inoculation!

Carried Away ~

Carried Away ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

To Your true Word Lord,
I will forever cleave
to the Life and Way
I will never leave.

To the false gospel,
I will not take heed
onto its heresies
my soul will not feed.

To Your ways Lord,
I’ll continue to obey
from the only true path
I’ll not be carried away.

To the false teachers,
I’ll refuse to listen
to their deceitfulness
I will not ever give in.

To Your true Word Lord,
I’ll not be tossed from
to the one they distort
I’ll remain forever numb!

~~~~~~~~

New Year’s Resolutions ~

New Year's Resolution~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Now that the holidays,
are finished and over . . .
we’re ready to make up
our new plans, to go for.

So we write out our list,
of freshly made resolutions
arrange them out carefully
for their perfect executions.

We set out all determined,
to reach our new-born goals
but within the first months
we lose all our self-control.

So this year if you want,
to really get into shape . . .
then your new year plans
you will need to scrape.

For you don’t need a list,
of new things you should do
all you need is your Bible . . .
and a year to read it through!

Your Word Lord ~

Powerful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Your Word Lord,
it is mighty powerful
it is commanding
it is boldly truthful.

It is alive and active,
it is full of energy
it is razor-sharp
for it pierces inwardly.

Your Word Lord,
it cuts to the core
it penetrates the soul
showing all You abhor.

It is always at work,
it obliterates the dark
it is jolting . . .
for it is raw and stark.

Your Word Lord,
it punctures the heart
it perforates the mind
separates the two apart.

It is discerning,
it conquers and divides
it sees those who have
its truth living inside.

Your Word Lord,
no one must ignore
for one day our lives . . .
to You, we’ll account for!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:12

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
 and sharper than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder
of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts
and intents of the heart.

Neither is there any creature
that is not manifest in his sight:
but all things are naked
and opened unto the eyes
of him with whom we have to do.”

Seeker or Finder ~

Seek and You Will FInd used with permission IBible Verses

 Today, I hear about,
people who are seekers
I understand in their Bible
they are only peepers.

They have no time to read,
the Word on their own
they see no need  . . .
for their sins, to atone.

The seekers go to church,
each Sunday, there they sit
but the rest of the week . . .
their faith just doesn’t fit.

They walk into the world,
become with it a friend
in the name of love  . . .
always careful not to offend.

I hear about the masses,
of the Jesus seekers
who are being misled by . . .
some of today’s preachers.

And I am so afraid,
they’ll never be true finders . . .
for to the Truth, Way and Life
they have put on their blinders!

the Word of God I etch

I’d be a miserable wretch.

His Word reveals to me,
Light in its purest form
it exposes all my sin
the wickedness I perform.

In God’s Word I can find,
the true meaning of life
how to avoid being filled
with anxiety and strife.

His Word imparts wisdom,
it gives me understanding
it helps me from being . . .

God’s Word, grace and mercy
to remind me why it is I’m saved.

I want to know with You
the battles ours to win.

I don’t want it watery,

I don’t want it weakened

just to stay trim.

some walk for hours
some use machines
to get all their power.

The only thing I lift,
weighs less than a pound
but, oh what strength . . .
there is to be found.

I don’t need to exercise,
or even break a sweat
I don’t have to work out
nor side cramps do I get.

I just pick up my Bible,
for my strength training
and in the Word I find . . .
power ~ life-changing!
