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!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 15:9

“But in vain they do worship me,
teaching for doctrines
the commandments of men.”

Worth My Pursuing ~

Worth Pursuing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes I don’t get,
what God is doing
but, I know His reasons
are worth my pursuing.

Sometimes I’m not sure,
what God wants of me
but, I know His plans
are there for me to see.

Sometimes I don’t discern,
what God is asking
but, I know His desires
are worth the unmasking.

Sometimes I can’t imagine,
what God has in store
but, I know His answers
He wants me to explore.

Sometimes I don’t get,
what God wants me to do
but,  I know His will  . . .
is up to me to pursue!

I’m Waiting For You Lord ~

Waiting For You Lord ~ ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I am waiting for You Lord,
because You told me to
and I am anticipating
what it is that You will  do.

I am being strong Lord,
for I have put my trust
in You because I know
You’re always fair and just.

I am waiting for You Lord,
just like You said I should
and I know I can expect
from You something good.

I’m remaining calm Lord,
see I’m not trembling
for I have put my faith in
whatever You’re assembling.

I am waiting for You Lord,
again I say I’m waiting . . .
for I know that with You
there can be no debating!

“Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,

Saving Light ~

Saving Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I pray those in the dark,
may see Your saving Light
I pray they will come to know
it’s with Satan that they fight.

I pray they will find the Truth,
so they can seek the Way
I pray Your mercy and favor
will cause their hearts to sway.

I pray their eyes be opened,
to the darkness of their deeds
I pray they will come to know
it is the devil who misleads.

I pray their ears will hear,
the Good News that You sent
I pray to Your love and grace
they will give their consent.

Lord, I pray for those under,
Satan’s bondage and control
I pray they will come to know
only You can save their soul!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 26:18

“To open their eyes, and to turn them
from darkness to light, and from the
power of Satan unto God, that they
may receive forgiveness of sins,
and inheritance among them which
are sanctified by faith that is in me.”

His Perfect Peace ~

 ~ His Perfect Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I struggle
with crippling doubt
it’s when I don’t . . .
first seek God out.

When I think,
I am not really free
it’s when the devil
is messing with me.

When I battle,
with high anxiety
it’s when I don’t . . .
trust God’s authority.

When I feel,
I am all alone
it’s when my eyes
are off His throne.

When my fears,
to God, I release
it’s when I have . . .
His perfect peace!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 26:3

“Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.”

He Know’s ~

Plans to Give You Hope ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Used with permission IBible Verses

He knows,
He’s got it figured out
and it’s up to me
not to have any doubt.

He knows,
He’s got a perfect plan
and it’s up to me
to leave it in His hand.

He knows,
He’s got it all prearranged
and it’s up to me
not to get shortchanged.

He knows,
He’s got my future secure
and it’s up to me
not to take a detour.

He knows,
my times are in His hands
and it’s up to me . . .
just where I will land.

The Assurances of Salvation ~

Man of Our Sorrow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Salvation Belongs IBible Verses

The assurances of salvation,
are something to behold
for all through the Bible
before our eyes they unfold.

We have the declaration,
of God’s unfailing love
we have confirmed access to
His merciful throne above.

We have the eternal pledge,
of adoption and acceptance
we’re given the guarantee
we will see His holy presence.

We have the security,
of forgiveness and election
though Jesus we’re promised
justification and redemption.

We have the certainty,
soon Jesus will return
when Satan and all evilness
in hell, will forever burn.

We have the assurance,
of an everlasting inheritance
of a future hope and glory
in a joyful, peaceful residence!

The Potter Stands Ready ~

The Potter Stands Ready ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Potter stands ready,
to patch and to restore
the broken heart of those
who can’t take anymore.

He sees the shattered soul,
all of the devastation
He knows it needs to find
in His hands, liberation.

He takes the ruined pieces,
places them upon His wheel
spins them with His mercy
so they may begin to heal.

He mends the brokenness,
with His  love and grace
then with hope and peace
He fills in the empty space.

The Potter stands ready,
to mend, heal and to restore
every single broken heart
who knocks on the Potter’s door!

“And the vessel that he made of clay
was marred in the hand of the potter:
so he made it again another vessel,
as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

Because of Jesus ~

Because of Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Because of Jesus,
tomorrow is bright
because of Him
there is now Light.

He is my Truth,
my earthly guide
He is my Friend
my true confide.

Because of Jesus,
I have no fear
because I know
He is always near.

He is my Way,
He leads me to
all things good
all things true.

Because He loved,
me at the first . . .
tis why my soul
with joy now bursts!

Pour Out Your Heart ~

 Here is My Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Pour out your heart to Jesus,
tell Him what’s bothering you
let Him know you need Him
to show you what to do.

Don’t hold anything back,
give Him all you’ve got
let Him have each worrisome
every troublesome thought.

Let it all flow out,
let Him know you are weak
He is always there for those
who are willing to find and seek.

Dispense onto Jesus,
your every fear and doubt
explain to Him your anxiety
what your nervousness is about.

Pour your heart out to Jesus,
He will hear your every prayer
for He came into this world . . .
so your burdens, He could bear!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“Trust in him at all times;
ye people, pour out your heart
before him: God is a refuge for us.”

My Prayer for You ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ My Prayer for You ~ photo creation swap

I pray the Lord will be with you,
while this, you are going through
I pray you will not leave His side
so in Him, you can restfully abide.

I pray the Lord will stand with you,
give you wisdom, in what to do
I pray He’ll help to keep you still
as you seek out, His perfect will.

I pray the Lord will be your helper,
In Him, you’ll find your comforter
I pray He will show you His plans
as you dwell in His mighty hands.

I pray the Lord will be your light,
calm your fears throughout the night
I pray His Word will bring you peace
and your anxiety will come to cease.

I pray today the Lord is with you,
and tomorrow all will be anew
I pray the Lord will meet your need
from this burden, you’ll soon be freed!

Some Days ~

Steps of Faith by Daniel R free ohoto #14252

Lord, some days I just don’t know,
what I am gonna do . . .
sometimes I haven’t the strength
to follow in Your shoes.

Some days are just impossible,
to pick up my cross
sometimes I can’t bear
yet another loss.

Some days are just harder,
to go to You in prayer
sometimes it’s so easy
to fall into Satin’s snare.

Some days I feel so lost,
so alone and miserable
sometimes I feel like my sins
to You ~ aren’t forgivable.

Some days are too difficult,
from the moment they arrive
sometimes the night ahead
seems impossible to survive.

Lord, some days I just don’t know,
what I am gonna do . . .
that is why today I’m starting it ~
by trusting in only You!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:22

And the woman was made whole from that hour.”
