A Living Sacrifice ~

If you want to really find,
God’s good and perfect will
then you must give to Him
your ego, pride and self-will.

You will need to submit,
your heart, mind and soul
over to the Holy Spirit
so He can take control.

Then He will teach you,
all about holy living
and your whole life to God
soon you will start giving.

If you really long to be,
to God truly acceptable
if you no longer want to be
to the world’s ways susceptible.

Then you must present,
the new life He’s given to you
as a holy living sacrifice . . .
in all that you say and do!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that
ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God.”

Abiding On The Vine ~

If we are to remain,
abiding on the Vine
our life’s with Jesus
must intertwine.

If we are to abide,
in Jesus each day
we must be willing
to trust and obey.

If we are to stay,
connected to Him
we must allow Jesus
our branches to trim.

If we are to produce,
for Jesus good fruit
we must daily give
our ego’s a boot.

If we are to remain,
obey, produce and stay
then we must abide . . .
in His Word everyday.

~~~~~~

John 15:5

“I am the vine,
ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me,
and I in him,
the same bringeth
forth much fruit:
for without me
ye can do nothing.”

Every Spiritual Blessing ~

Each day we are blessed,
with God’s merciful love
blessed to know one day
we’ll be with Him above.

We are blessed to be,
sealed with the Holy Spirit
to be holy and blameless
so eternal life we’ll inherit.

We are blessed to know,
the mystery of His will
to feed upon His Word
to get our daily  fill.

We are blessed to know,
the hope of His calling
so into temptation His power
will keep us from falling

We are blessed with redemption,
when Jesus’ blood we embrace
for the forgiveness of our sins
through the richness of His grace.

Each Day we are blessed,
with every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly places in Christ
so into Him, we’ll keep pressing!

” Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who hath blessed us with all
spiritual blessings
in heavenly places in Christ:”

Staying On Course ~

May each day,
we apply God’s grace
to keep us steadfast
in the daily race.

May each day,
God’s mercy we find
to fill our hearts
with peace of mind.

May each day,
our faith keep us
on the course
of hope and trust.

May each day,
we seek God first
to feed our hunger
to quench our thirst.

May each day,
we keep our eyes
looking forward to
the winner’s prize!

1 Corinthians 9:24

” Know ye not that they which run
in a race run all, but one receiveth

Out With The Old ~

Out with the old,
on with the new
now that Jesus
lives inside of you.

No more bitterness,
no more anger
now that Jesus
is your Anchor.

No more grudges,
no more frustrations
now that Jesus
is your Foundation.

No more displeasure,
no more resentment
now that Jesus
is your contentment.

On with the new,
out with the old
now that you’re in . . .
Jesus’ fold!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 4.31-32

Let all bitterness,
and wrath, and anger,
and clamour, and evil
speaking, be put away
from you, with all malice:

And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted, forgiving
one another, even as God
for Christ’s sake hath
forgiven you.”

Think ~

If we were to think,
before we speak . . .
our tongues we’d hold
more in our cheeks.

If we carefully choose,
what words we use
we’d say things to lift up
not those that bruise.

If we were to ponder,
what we had to say
we’d be more likely
to stop first and pray.

If we were to select,
words comforting
our speech would be
far less confronting.

If we knew just how,
powerful our words were
the more encouragement
in others we’d stir.

If we were to think,
before we speak . . .
more grace we’d have
the less we’d critique!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:29

“Let no corrupt communication
proceed out of your mouth,
but that which is good to
the use of edifying, that
it may minister grace
unto the hearers.”

United ~

When God teaches you,
the truth He will show
and the things of His will
you will want to know.

When God in His Word,
begins to guide you
you’ll want godly conduct
in the things that you do.

When God teaches you,
how to walk on His way
you will choose carefully
the things that you say.

When God gives directions,
to the Cross it will lead
there you’ll find Jesus
and the grace to be freed.

When God teaches you,
of His power and might  . . .
He’ll fill you with holy fear
and your hearts will unite!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 86.11

Teach me thy way, O Lord;
I will walk in thy truth:
unite my heart to fear thy name.

A Critical Spirit ~

A critical spirit,
fights and bickers
you can see it in those
who are nit-pickers.

They’re known to be,
quite quarrelsome
to other’s they are
more than irksome.

A critical spirit,
can be harsh and cruel
their tongues are always
in some kind of duel.

They are selfish,
it’s their way or none
they do not care
who they hurt or shun.

A critical spirit,
can be transformed
when to God’s love
it is conformed!

~~~~~~~~

“Hatred stirreth up strifes:
but love covereth all sins.”

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!

“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,

May Christ Dwell ~

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!

~~~~~

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.

trust also in him; and he
shall bring it to pass.”

With All of My Heart and Soul ~

with-all-of-my-heart-and-soul-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

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,
and the power of Your might
may I draw all of my strength
from the greatness of Your light.

May I remain faithful,
may the joy of my salvation
cause me to be full of hope
filled with peaceful jubilation.

Lord, with all my heart and soul,
I love You more each day . . .
may You continue to guide me
to walk in all your ways!

Joshua 22:5

“But take diligent heed
to do the commandment and the law,
which Moses the servant of the Lord
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.”
