The Power of Sin ~

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

The power of sin,
is seductive
it is always beguiling
and permissive.

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

The power of sin,
is addictive
is it always evil
and destructive.

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

The power of sin,
you cannot control
unless you let God’s Spirit
into your heart and 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!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 34:4

“I sought the Lord,
and he heard me,
and delivered me
from all my fears.”

God Get’s You ~

god-gets-you-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God gets you,
He knows what you’re all about
He sees into your heart
He knows you from the inside out.

God gets you,
He sees through all the layers
He knows what’s going on
for, He is an intention 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 knows that you have
over them some misgivings.

God gets you,
He can read you like a book
He tracks your every move
knows the wrong turns you 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 ~

bible-crunches-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

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 whatever He says
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!

Psalm 104:10

“He sendeth the springs
into the valleys, which
run among the hills.”

You Are Unique ~

You are unique,
you are one of a kind
God molded your heart
your soul and your mind.

You are unique,
God created every part
He put you together
right from the start.

You are unique,
God designed all of you
He has a purpose and plan
for all that you do.

You are unique,
God fashioned each crease
He shaped you into
His beautiful masterpiece.

You are unique,
marvelous in every way
tis why you should sing
to Him, your praise today!

Remember Your First Love ~

remeber-your-first-love-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Remember your First Love,
how you once felt
how the sound of His name
made your heart melt?

Remember the hope,
how it lifted up your soul
when by His stripes
you were made whole?

Remember the joy,
how much you were elated
when your life to Jesus
you first dedicated?

Remember the grace,
how it washed over you
how God’s loving mercy
made everything new?

Remember your First Love,
how Jesus made you feel?
If not, it is time for you
to get back your zeal!

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

May Christ abide,
in your heart always
may He be the one

be firmly grounded.

always be on display!

Along My Journey ~

along-my-journey-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, along my journey,
to get closer to You
there were lots of obstacles
I had to maneuver through.

You took me down the road,
of sorrow and grief
so I would learn to turn
to You for peace and relief.

You put me on the path,
of heartache and loss
so I would know the pain
of carrying my own cross.

You brought me to places,
I did not want to go
so that Your mercy
I’d truly come to know.

Lord, along my journey,
of hope and salvation
You always had for me
heaven as my destination!

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!

Lift Me Up Lord ~

lift-me-up-lord-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling down
I need You to turn
my spirits around.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling blue
I need a pick me up
like only You can do.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling low
I need You to bring
back salvation’s glow.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling bleak
I need Your strength
for I am just too weak.

Lift me up Lord,
I humbly ask . . .
for without Your power
I’m not up to the task!

Cry’s From The Heart ~

cries-from-the-heart-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The cry’s of the heart,
don’t fall on deaf ears
for each one of them
God promises to hear.

The cry for a heart,
after His own
tells Him you long
to make it His home.

The cry for a heart,
He can transform
tells Him you want
it to be His platform.

The cry for a heart,
open and teachable
tells Him its ready
to be searchable.

The cry for a heart,
to know His ways
tells Him you want
to be lead each day.

The cry for a heart,
that God can touch
says to Him . . .
I love You so much!

~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

“A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put
within you: and I will take
away the stony heart out of
your flesh, and I will give
you an heart of flesh.”

A Reminder ~

a-reminder-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Satan is evil,
he’s a deceiver
he is out to get
every believer.

He is a liar,
he is a thief
he only causes
eternal grief.

Satan is devious,
he is ruthless
he wants to render
you for God useless.

He is scheming,
he is cunning
after your soul
he is gunning.

Satan is a slanderer,
he’s a counterfeiter
he wants to make you
in Jesus a quitter.

Satan is evil,
he is an eye blinder
lest you forget . . .
tis why this reminder!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 12:9

“And the great dragon
was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan,
which deceiveth the whole world:

Pressurized ~

dont-be-pressurized-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Feeling the pressure,
from your peers
no matter your age
or number of years?

Well, you won’t collapse,
under the pressure
if you keep your eyes on
your heavenly treasure.

Being influenced,
to follow the crowd
where anything goes
everything is allowed?

Well, you needn’t fold,
under the pressure
if you go to your Bible
for a daily refresher.

Being criticized,
for how you believe
because worldly views
you refuse to receive?

Well don’t you give in,
no matter the pressure
know your faith in God
brings Him pleasure.

Being mocked,
teased and made fun of
because you rather follow
the Light from above?

Well don’t you cave in,
nor be conformed . . .
instead let your mind
in God be transformed!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“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.”

The Promise Keeper ~

our-promise-keeper-christian-poetryby-deborah-ann

Promise Keeper,
that is what God is
for He always does
just what He says.

Faithful and True,
to His Word He sticks
He doesn’t waiver
stays with the script.

Trustworthy and Solvent,
He’ll end what He began
all will become new
upon His command.

Sovereign and Free,
to do as He must
He’ll be the Judge
for everything unjust.

Promise Keeper,
that is who God is . . .
tis why it’s so important
to do as He says!

In The Name of Tolerance ~

in-the-name-of-tolerance-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God gave us His commands,
to follow and obey
but, that is not what’s taught
in some pulpits today.

Instead we’re being told,
the laws God once gave
can be changed to fit
however we want to behave.

They promote transgression,
in the name of tolerance
skewing the Words of Jesus
to suit their preference.

As the love for self grows,
so does our earthly desires
so they tell us we no longer
need to do what God requires.

God gave us His commands,
they’re written in the Good Book
but, so many for themselves
haven’t even taken a look!

~~~~~~~

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.”

I’ll go all the way

so my belief in God
can never get corrupted.

I’ll do Bible crunches,
tone up my Gospel flab
so I can be ready
to fight off Satan’s jabs.

I’ll do a full workout,
I’m going to optimize
so my trust in God
can’t be compromised.

Today I’m exercising.
going to spiritually stick it
for, I’ll be working out . . .
with the Holy Spirit!

Mountain Climbing ~

mountain-climbing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We all have mountains,
we need to move or propel
but, our doubt in God
we must first dispel.

Some of them are so tall,
we get dizzy just thinking
how we’re to reach the top
without falling or fainting.

Some of them are so rugged,
moving them seems impossible
that we forget with God
all things are truly possible.

Some of them are so steep,
they seem life threatening
that we can’t get beyond
our fear and trembling.

We all have mountains,
we need to move or get over
but, first our fear and doubt
to God, we must handover!

~~~~~

Mark 11:23

“For verily I say unto you,
That whosoever shall say unto
this mountain, Be thou removed,
and be thou cast into the sea;
and shall not doubt in his heart,
but shall believe that those
things which he saith shall
come to pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith.”

My Song of Salvation ~

With an open heart,
I want to sing
about my Lord
my God, my King

I want to share,
what’s on my soul
songs of the One
who made me whole.

I want to sing,
of God’s favor
how in His death
He became our Savior.

I want to chime,
eternity’s bell
and save a soul
from the fires of hell.

With an open heart,
I want to sing
till in your own
the truth will ring!

I want to tell,
of His loving grace
till in your own heart
His mercy you embrace!

A New Heaven and Earth ~

a-new-heaven-and-earth-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A new heaven,
a new universe
where in God’s peace
all will be immersed.

New stars there’ll be,
new galaxies too
all of God’s glory
will shine through

A new earth,
pristine and fresh
no scars on it
from acts of the flesh.

A new city,
with streets of gold
gates of pearls
opening to His fold.

A new relationship,
between God and man
for all who’ve trusted
in salvation’s plan.

A new condition,
broken hearts no more
no sorrow, no death
only bliss galore.

A new Heaven,
a new earth too . . .
oh, won’t that be
a glorious view!

Dancing With the Wolves ~

dancing-with-the-wolves-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

So many today,
dancing with the wolves
so many are following
their slippery hooves.

So many today,
are deceivingly mislead
so many aren’t being
the truth, anymore fed.

So many today,
are living in the darkness
so many aren’t looking
for Christ and His likeness.

So many today,
hearing errant teachings
so many don’t discern
the lies they’re preaching.

So many today,
with wolves are dancing
so many can’t spot . . .
danger at first glancing!
