The Morning Star ~

The Morning Star,
today is shining bright
for unto the world came
God’s redeeming light.

A child, a babe,
the Son of Man
the world He can save
oh, yes He can.

For to all of those,
who trust and believe
His love and grace
their soul’s receive.

A Savior born,
many years ago
so on us God’s mercy
He could bestow.

The Morning Star,
shines bright today
tis the true reason
for CHRISTmas Day!

Revelation 22:16

“I Jesus have sent mine angel
to testify unto you these
things in the churches.
I am the root and the
offspring of David,
and the bright and
morning star.”

God’s Gift of Love ~

God's Gift of Love ~ CHRSTian poetry by deborah ann

A manger’s crib,
a virgin’s birth
a Babe is born
peace on earth.

Angels above,
glory, glory sing
over the coming
of the King of Kings.

A new hope,
a new day
a Savior born
to show the way.

Wise men travel,
from afar
to find the truth
behind the Star.

A new covenant,
a new joy
all wrapped up in
Mary’s little Boy!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:10-11

“When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him: and when
they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto him gifts; gold,
and frankincense and myrrh.”

I’ll Be That Light ~

This CHRISTmas,
I will be that light
my love for Jesus . . .
will shine ever bright.

I will be the one,
who’s hope will glow
my love for Jesus . . .
from my heart will flow.

This CHRISTmas,
my joy will beam
my love for Jesus . . .
off my soul will gleam.

I will be that person,
who’s faith will rise
my love for Jesus . . .
will illuminate my eyes.

This CHRISTmas,
my light will glisten
for, I am not ashamed
of saying I’m a CHRISTian!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:14

“Ye are the light of the world.
A city that is set on an hill
cannot be hid.”

God’s Free Gift To All ~

God gave to all a gift,
a present like no other
some openly receive it
others with it don’t bother.

Some take their whole lives,
to unwrap God’s loving gift
some from the get go
don’t believe it will ever fit.

Some accept it openly,
some keep it under-wraps
some make it their whole life
some think it is just a trap.

Some take their time,
to understand what’s inside
some instantly push the gift
of grace and mercy aside.

God gave to all a free Gift,
of His begotten, beloved Son
and He desires it to be . .
received by each and everyone!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:18

“Therefore as by the offence
of one judgment came upon
all men to condemnation;
even so by the righteousness
of one the free gift
came upon all men unto
justification of life.”

Why Do You Celebrate CHRISTmas ~

Why do you celebrate CHRISTmas,
what does it do for you . . .
does the real meaning of it
hold for you what is true?

For, CHRISTmas is God’s Gift,
of His love for one and all
He sent His Son so you would
receive salvation’s call.

What do you want from CHRISTmas,
what are you looking for
do you not know by now
you can’t find it in a store?

For, Jesus was born to be,
the Savior of the world
and onto His shoulders
every sin, God unfurled.

You may think you don’t need Him,
but, He will always want you . . .
to ask Him for forgiveness
so He can make all things new.

Why do you celebrate CHRISTmas,
what does it really mean to you?
For, CHRISTmas is only about
a Savior’s dying love for you!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:11

“For unto you is born this day
in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.”

1 Peter 2:24

“Who his own self bare our sins
in his own body on the tree,
that we, being dead to sins,
should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed.”

The Greatest Gift ~

The greatest Gift,
that you can give
is the One . . .
that sin, forgives.

For, it’s full of grace,
joy, love and light
when it’s opened
it gives new sight.

The greatest Gift,
to pass along
is the One . . .
that lasts all  lifelong.

For, eternal life,
is its only content
making it the most
Wonderful present.

So if you don’t know,
this year what Gift to give
tell others why Jesus . . .
in your life now lives!

The Coming King ~

A Gift from God,
a Savior born
on one starlit
glorious morn.

A Babe, a Boy
a virgin’s Son
imparting grace
to everyone.

A Man, a Prince,
a coming King
who in an eye blink
eternal peace will bring.

A Counselor,
an Everlasting Father
one day every knee
will give Him honor.

A mighty God,
a sacrificial Lamb
the beloved Son
the Wonderful I AM.

A Gift from God,
from beginning to end
Jesus is . . .
our eternal Friend!

~~~~~~

“I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the ending,

The Miracle of CHRISTmas ~

Throughout history,
God had a plan . . .
about how He could save
all of man.

 So, He’s appeared to Moses,
in a burning bush
and in Elijah He was
that whispering, small hush.

He gave men dreams,
and many visions too
even a donkey talked
to get His Word through.

But man’s heart was like stone,
and wouldn’t heed to His way
and He knew like sheep
they had all gone astray.

So God became silent,
for over four-hundred years
what He was up to . . .
wasn’t meant for our ears.

Then He sent His Son,
one Christmas morn
and to the whole world
a Savior was born.

The Word became flesh,
and lived amongst us
and taught all who’d listen
how in His Father to trust.

He talked about sin,
repentance and forgiveness
He talked about His Fathers
mercy, grace and goodness.

His message was clear,
lives He could transform
if to the world ways
they would not conform.

And now two-thousand years,
have come and gone
but, the miracle of CHRISTmas
still today lives on.

For God had a plan,
right from the start
and it’s never  to late to ask . . .
Jesus into your heart!

~~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

All I Want for Christmas ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann - Twelve Days of Chirstian - image Wikipedia Common

I don’t want a bird sitting in my tree,
or any number of any kind of dove
I don’t want hens inside of my house
all I need, is God’s gift of eternal love.

I don’t want anyone milking anything,
or any one leaping all around
I don’t want rings of any type
all I want, is to get my victory crown.

I don’t want anything that’s swimming,
no piping or drumming crowds
I don’t want anyone dancing anywhere
all I want, is to see Jesus in the clouds.

I don’t want any pears or turtles,
nothing that is french, gold or laying
I don’t want geese, swans or maids
nor ladies or lords in my home staying.

I don’t want anything this CHRISTmas,
I don’t want to cause you buying strife
all I want from you this year . . .
is for you to invite  Jesus into your life!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is
eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

It’s A Wonderful Life ~

It’s a wonderful life,
when in Jesus you believe
it’s a fantastic experience
when God’s gift you receive.

It’s a life filled with hope,
peace, joy and rest
grace is a wondrous thing
when with it you’re blessed.

It’s a wonderful life,
when you know God’s greatness
favor is a glorious thing
when you accept His goodness.

It’s a life of forgiveness,
sacrifice and redemption
mercy is a magnificent thing
when you seek its perfection.

It’s a wonderful life,
when in Jesus you believe
for God’s love, mercy and grace
are the gifts you’ll receive!

A Look Into the Manger ~

Some people look,
but they don’t see
the gift God sent
to set them free.

They see a manger,
but not the Savior
they see a Babe
but not God’s favor.

They see a Boy,
but not the King of Kings
they see a Child
but not the hope He brings.

They see the Wise Men,
but not the Prince of Peace
they see the Shepherds
but not God’s love released.

Some people look,
into the manger
but they only see . . .
Jesus as a stranger!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:12

“And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.”

Christmas Traditions ~

We all have our own,
Christmas traditions . . .
and so we put our homes
through all kinds of transitions.

We set up our Christmas trees,
on branches, ornaments we dangle
we hang up Christmas stockings
along with garland on the mantle.

We all have our own,
Christmas time rituals . . .
and so our yearly customs
have become habitual.

We shop until we drop,
buying Christmas wishes on our list
we check it more than once
to make sure we get the right gift.

We cook and we bake,
Christmas pies, cakes and cookies
we peel, we dice, we roast
so we can binge on all the goodies.

We all have our traditions,
but they have no real connection . . .
to the true meaning of CHIRSTmas
they’re nothing more than a deflection!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6-7

For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be
upon his shoulder: and his name
shall be called Wonderful,
Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government
and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David,
and upon his kingdom, to order it,
and to establish it with judgment
and with justice from henceforth
even for ever. The zeal of the
Lord of hosts will perform this.”

The Joy of CHRISTmas ~

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
ring in your ears
may the hope it brings
rid you of your fears.

For unto this day,
a Child was born
a Savior to the world
one glorious morn.

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
feel you with cheer
may the peace it brings
last all throughout the year.

For unto to this day,
God sent us His Son
loved and begotten
to bring joy to everyone.

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
ring loud and clear
may the love that it brings
draw Jesus to you near!

~~~~~~

Luke 2:10

“And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold,
I bring you good tidings
of great joy,
which shall be to all people.”

There Would Be No CHRISTmas ~

There would be no CHRISTmas,
without God’s mercy and His love
there would be no Nativity
without this Gift from above.

There would be no hope,
without the Virgin’s birth
there would be no joy
for a new heaven and earth.

There would be no Holy Night,
without the Good News
there would be no adoring Him
without the King of the Jews.

There would be no peace,
without the Prince dying for it
there would be no rebirth
without the Holy Spirit.

There would be no CHRISTmas
without Calvary’s cross . . .
for Jesus was born to save
the sinner and the lost!

for his unspeakable gift.”

Is There Room For Jesus ~

Is there room for Jesus,
in your life today . . .
will you make for Him
a warm place to stay?

Or will you be too busy,
in the CHRISTmas rush
that to His very presence
you’ll give Him the brush?

Is there room for Jesus,
in your heart this year
will you welcome Him
with gladness and cheer?

Or will you be too frazzled,
with all that you’ve to do
and have no space for Him
until the holidays are through?

Is there room for Jesus,
in your life today . . .
or will you too
have to send Him away!

~~~~~

Luke 2:7

“And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger;
because there was no room
for them in the inn.”

When CHRISTmas Day is Over ~

when-christmas-day-is-over-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
and the tree is finally down
as the lights are returned
to where they were found.

As we settle back into,
our daily routines
the hope of CHRISTmas
isn’t over by any means.

For, the reality of the day,
you cannot pack away
nor return or store it
back into some attic bay.

CHRISTmas lives on,
in our hearts everyday
for it’s the only Gift . . .
we can give each day.

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
be sure to keep sharing . . .
the Truth, Life and Way
by being Light bearing!

CHRISTmas Morn Is Here ~

christmas-morn-is-here-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

CHRISTmas morn is here,
I hear the angels sing
rise up and come . . .
greet your newborn King.

Bow to your knees,
praise His mighty name
for, because of this Babe
nothing will be the same.

Oh, how Wonderful He is,
I hear the saints join in
a Savior to the world
forgiveness for our sin.

Love has come down,
from His heavenly place
hearken to the gift
of God’s mercy and grace.

Christmas morn is here,
sing ~ hallelujah ~ sing
open up your hearts . . .
to the truth Jesus brings!

My Gift To Jesus ~

my-gift-to-jesus-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

This Christmas . . .
after all the presents are opened,
I’m going to sneak away and give one more
I’m going to go into my prayer closet
and behind me I’m going to shut the door.

I’m going to pull away all the wrappings,
the frills and the gingerbread I hide behind
I’m going to unwrap my true wretched self
not the one that’s embellished in my mind.

I am going to take off all the ribbons,
rip off the tape and the pretty bows
I’m going to unmask my heart and soul
to a God ~ who already sees and knows.

I’m going to get down on my knees,
give Jesus the gift of my trust
I’m going to bundle myself in His love
and to His will I’m going to adjust.

I’m going to wrap myself up in Jesus,
I’m going to tie myself up with His grace
I’m going to bind myself to His Word
and everyday I’m going to seek His face!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:11

“And when they were come
into the house, they saw
the young child with Mary
his mother, and fell down,
and worshipped him: and
when they had opened
their treasures,
they presented unto him
gifts; gold, and
frankincense and myrrh.”

On This CHRISTmas Morn ~ A Re-Post ~

A promise to the world,
a child to be given
so many years foretold
so all could be forgiven.

Moonless night shining,
with the Morning Star
calling watchful shepherds
to come from afar.

Wise Men carry gifts,
meant for only a King
angels up in heaven
Glory ~ Glory ~ sing.

God became a man,
the Good News is born
begotten Son arrives
on this Christmas morn.

Our mighty God concedes,
to the wickedness of man
the Prince of Peace comes
to bridge the empty span.

Wonderful is His name,
Counselor to the meek
the Son was born of flesh
to give power to the weak.

Our everlasting Father,
knows our fallen state
so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born
sing ~ Praises to His Glory ~
on this Christmas morn!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6
King James Version

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is
given: and the government shall be upon his
shoulder: and his name shall be called

Away With the Manger ~ Re-posted ~

 Away with the manger,
no need for a bed
the birth of our Savor
is best left unsaid.

The unbeliever’s of the world,
look down from their nose
when the name of our Lord Jesus
on them we impose.

The masses are in agreement,
saying CHRISTmas is a mistake
but covetousness for the season
they will never forsake.

We love thee materialism,
we love thee so much
and to their credit card idols
they bow down and clutch.

Be clear to say happy holidays,
season greetings to you
but don’t mention the babes name
or you they may sue.

They bless all of their goodies,
their toys and their playthings
but want nothing to do with the gift
that the sweet baby Jesus – brings!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:12
King James Version

“And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes,

lying in a manger.
