Walking With the Godless ~

When you walk,
from God’s will away
you’ll be on the road
to spiritual decay.

For, satan will come,
with his distorted views
so your mind he can
confound and confuse.

When you walk,
with the godless
your spiritual life
will become a mess.

For, the ungodly,
give worldly advice
to follow it only leads
to spiritual demise.

When you walk,
with the sinful
you better become
for your soul fearful.

For surely to walk,
with the ungodly
your spiritual life . . .
we become sloppy!

~~~~~

Psalm 1:1

“Blessed is the man that walketh
not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

Wrestling With God ~

Some people wrestle,
with God’s will
some find it so hard
to wait and be still.

But, those who stop,
their endless struggling
will find God’s will
isn’t really so puzzling.

Some people scuffle,
when disappointed
some end up being
with God disjointed.

But, those who quit,
their constant battling
will find God’s ways
aren’t really so baffling.

Some people wrestle,
with God and His ways
but, those who trust Him
are blessed all their days!

~~~~~~

Genesis 32:24-26

” And Jacob was left alone;
and there wrestled a man
with him until the breaking
of the day.

And when he saw that he
prevailed not against him,
he touched the hollow of
his thigh; and the hollow
of Jacob’s thigh was out
of joint,
as he wrestled with him.

And he said, Let me go,
for the day breaketh.
And he said, I will
not let thee go
except thou bless me.”

Give God Your Worries ~

give-god-your-worries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people worry,
about anything
some get anxious
over everything.

Some wrestle daily,
with their troubles
some nightly fight
with their struggles.

But, those who wait,
on the Lord are still
the worries they have
their peace cannot steal.

They cast their anxiety,
onto Jesus each day
they don’t fret about
things coming their way.

Some people worry,
about anything
but, those who trust God
give Him their everything!

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Open Eyes ~

Open eyes,
make believing hearts
spiritual understanding
they will impart.

Open eyes,
observe things clearly
to God’s Word
they are not leery.

Open eyes,
know the facts
they’re not deceived
by satan’s traps.

Open eyes,
do not doubt
they have checked
the truth out.

Open eyes,
don’t need to see
to know Jesus . . .
has set them free!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18

” The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his
calling, and what the riches
of the glory of his inheritance
in the saints,”

Fully Persuaded ~

Some people to God,
are wholly persuaded
some people to Jesus
are quasi dedicated.

Some people in God,
are barely invested
some people in Christ
are totally connected.

Some people give God,
only so much
some people have felt
their Savior’s touch.

Some people believe,
with their whole heart
some people’s belief
withered from the start.

Some people to the truth,
are fully persuaded
some people just make . . .
faith, too complicated!

~~~~~

Romans 8:38-39

” For I am persuaded,
that neither death,
nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things
present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us
from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Feeding Our Faith ~

In troubled times,
more trust we need
that is why our faith
we must daily feed.

Then when problems,
are thrown at us
all we have to do
is tap into our trust.

In troubled times,
we need faith strong
for we never know
what may come along.

Then when worries,
start barreling our way
all we have to do
is to trust and pray.

In troubled times,
we need to grow in grace
that’s why we need to feed
our faith on a daily base!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 2:2

“As newborn babes,
desire the sincere milk
of the word, that ye
may grow thereby:

Masks ~

Some hide behind,
masks of every kind
some wear disguises
if only in their mind.

Some camouflage,
who they truly are
some cover up
life’s many battle scars.

Some keep hidden,
the agony they feel
some their heartache
they want to conceal.

Some pretend to be,
happy when they’re not
some try to obscure
the problems they’ve got.

Some gloss over,
their heart’s insecurities
some try to cloak
their personal disabilities.

But, behind the masks,
from God we can’t hide
for He sees everything
going on, on the inside.

So, take off the disguise,
you are hiding behind
and let God transform . . .
your heart and mind!

~~~~~~

Job 34:21

“For his eyes
are upon the ways of man,
and he seeth all his goings.”

The Landmine of Pride ~

the-landmind-of-pride-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The landmine of pride,
we all step on it
we all think at times
God we can outwit.

We fall into the snare,
of becoming self-reliant
but, what we really are
is being to God defiant.

The landmine of pride,
is  satan’s human trap
he knows it will go off
when our ego’s we tap.

We don’t see the danger,
until after it explodes
and all of our arrogance
God in our life exposes.

The landmine of pride,
will blow up in our face
unless we let God defuse it
with His saving grace!

~~~~~~~~~

“Pride goeth before destruction,
and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

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.”

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.”

May Christ Dwell ~

May Christ dwell,
in your heart today
may His Life
be your Truth and Way.

May Christ make,
your heart His home
may you let Him
make it His throne.

May Christ abide,
in your heart always
may He be the one
to walk its hallways.

May Christ’s love be,
in your heart rooted
may your love for Him
be firmly grounded.

May Christ dwell,
in your heart today
may your faith in Him
always be on display!

Near-Sighted ~

near-sighted-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, may my eyes not be,
short or near-sighted
may they not become
from the world blighted.

May on Your light,
my focus always be
not on the things going on
right in front of me.

Lord, may my vision,
never get cloudy
may my eyes on You
be fixed soundly.

May in the distance,
I clearly see You
not with a marred
or distorted view.

Lord, may I not develop,
near or short-sightedness
so I may be full of . . .
the light, of Your likeness!

~~~~~

“The light of the body is the eye:
if therefore thine eye be single,

When You’re Delighted ~

that-is-the-time-christian-poetry-by-deborah-nn

When you’re delighted,
to walk in God’s ways
that’s the time you’ll have
more peaceful days.

When you’re committed,
to seeking God first
that’s the time after Him
you genuinely thirst.

When you give God,
all your heart desires
that’s the time you’re doing
just what He requires.

When you trust God,
for everything
that’s the time you’ll see
each blessing He brings.

When in God’s ways
you’re truly delighted
that’s the time to be
joyfully excited!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:4-5

“Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee the desires
of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord;
trust also in him; and he
shall bring it to pass.”

Lord may I love You,
forever to You, may I cleave
may my heart and soul
from Your ways never leave.

May my heart obey You,
diligently may I conform
may my love for You
never grow lukewarm.

May I always trust You,

cause me to be full of hope
filled with peaceful jubilation.

Lord, with all my heart and soul,
I love You more each day . . .

to walk in all your ways!

charged you, to love the Lord
your God, and to walk in all his
ways, and to keep his commandments,
and to cleave unto him, and to
serve him with all your heart
and with all your soul.”

New Discoveries ~

Each day is a new adventure,
God gives us to explore
each day He wants us . . .
to get to know Him more.

Every place that you look,
new discoveries are everywhere
no matter where you turn
God is waiting for you there.

Every year God has for us,
something new and exciting

in His Word exploring.

Every verse you read,
has something just for you

your faith it will renew.

Every day is a new adventure,

and it’s up to us . . .
to use His Word to navigate!

Yearly Check-Up ~

spiritual-check-up-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Today I had my yearly check-up,
heard my life was just a breath
was told that any day  . . .
I could face my earthly death.

Found my days were numbered,
along with all my hair
and the fleeting of my time
was the ground work to prepare.

All throughout the exam,
as the evaluation was going on
I wondered if my heartbeat
reflected the one of the Son.

When the assessment was over,
I knew my habits had to change
and the priorities in my life
I would need to rearrange.

Today, I had a check-up,
found out life was just a vapor
so until my dying breath . . .
I’m living it for my Savior!

~~~~~

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.”

Whatever Is Of A Good Report ~

whatever-is-of-a-good-report-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Whatever is of a good report,
that which brings God praise
think about such things
and your spirit’s they will raise.

For, that which is mindful,
of God’s mercy and grace
are thoughts that our souls
daily need to embrace.

Whatever is eternal,
our minds should think of
visions of what is everlasting
are full of God’s power and love.

For, that which brings strength,
to our faith and hope
are the things that will help us
in this world to better cope.

Whatever is Lovely ~

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

Whatever things are lovely,
that which is positive
think about such things
everything else is just negative.

For, that which is uplifting,
is full of righteousness
and will bring to your heart
contentment and quietness.

Whatever things are calming,
that which is tranquil
think about these things
your worries they will still.

For, that which is hopeful,
that which brings confirmation
will give you Godly confidence
full of love and not frustration.

Whatever things are lovely,
in your mind let them flow
and then the peace of God
you will come to know!

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,

Whatever Is Just ~

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

Whatever things are just,
in your mind let them sink in
for in the end it will be
God’s justice that will win.

For, God is full of mercy,
and gave to us His ways
so that we may have hope
for more peaceful days.

Whatever things are just,
these things think about
and they will bring comfort
when your fears incite doubt.

For, God works are flawless,
all has a perfect order
and He will make things right
amidst the chaos and horror.

Whatever things are just,
let your heart hold on to
for God’s moral excellence
will one day be coming true!

Whatever is Honest ~

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

On whatsoever is honest,
let your mind be ruled
so to the world’s ways
you will not be fooled.

For, that which is honest,
will see through the deceit
and the lies others tell you
with the truth, you’ll defeat.

Whatever things are honest,
in your heart let them root
and God’s righteousness
will be your soul’s pursuit.

For, that which is honest,
brings spiritual purity
and you will be blessed
with eternal security.

Whatever things are honest,
let them fill your mind
though others may despise you
God’s peace you will find!

Whatever is True ~

Whatever things are true,
let them fill your mind

For, that which is true,
is born out of God’s favor
and crowned with the grace
of Christ Jesus, our Savior.

Whatever things are true,
let them fill your heart
and from God’s ways
you will not depart.

For, that which is true,
is found in God’s Word
and promises to be
the righteous man’s gird.

 Whatever things are true,
such things, think about
then give God your praise
with a joyful shout!
