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.”

From Places Up High ~

from-places-up-high-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Spiritual blessings,
from places up high . . .
are ours to behold
and daily apply.

The blessings of grace,
redemption and forgiveness
the blessing of being filled
with all of God’s richness.

From the Father’s right hand,
passed on to His Son
are all of His blessings
for us to draw upon.

The blessings of joy,
rest and eternal peace
the blessing of faith
with a hope not to cease.

The blessings of power,
strength and victory
the blessing of trust
in all of God’s mystery.

All spiritual blessings,
from places up high . . .
are ours to withdraw
on this we can rely!

~~~~~

Ephesians 1:3

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

Small Blessings ~

let it rain Daniel R free photo

Small blessings . . .
shower on us everyday
but, often to them
we question or downplay.

At times, we don’t notice,
these tiny drops of grace
they seem so insignificant
for us, to truly embrace.

If we were to slow down,
we couldn’t count them all
for they’re immeasurable
though they seem so small.

When we start to notice,
the drops of His wonder
we will begin to recognize
God’s merciful splendor.

Small blessings . . .
shower on us each day
for, God smiles down on us
as we go about our way!

“God be merciful unto us,
and bless us;

 and cause his face

Blessed Are We ~

Blessed by Kristen Blackstock free photo #4908

Happy are they who trust,
who in God put their faith
blessed are we who obey
we who from God do not stray.

Happy are they who believe,
who in God place their care
blessed are we who are sure
we who in God are secure.

Happy are they who hope,
who in God are persuaded
blessed are we who are compliant
we who in God are reliant.

Happy are they who wait,
who in God are peacefully still
blessed are we who are joyful
we who in God are hopeful.

Happy are they who trust,
who in God  put their faith
blessed are we who are in love
with their Father above!

that put their trust in him.”

A Pink-Lemonade Sky ~

Birch Bay WA outside my window!

Give me the sun on the horizon,
a pink-lemonade sky above . . .
give me a partly cloudy day
and I’ll tell you why Jesus I love.

Give me the shade of the elm,
the Good Book for me to read
give me something cool to drink
and I’ll have close to all I need.

Give me the creek’s soft humming,
chirps coming from a mother’s nest
give me the green grass to lay in
well ~ you can picture the rest.

Give me a Scripture to mediate on,
a soft breeze blowing across my face
give me a day dwelling upon
God’s amazing, wonderful grace.

Give me the aromas of a barbecue,
my mom’s homemade apple pie
give me laughter around an open fire
the warm sounds of a summer’s sigh.

Give me a day in the radiant Son shine,
so I can reflect on God’s perfect love
give me a day to spend basking . . .
in the goodness that comes from above!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

” Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of
good report; if there be
any virtue, and if there be
any praise, think on these things.”

Trust Fund ~

trustlord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Got me a trust fund,
use it every day
I can always count on it
especially when I pray.

God is the grantor,
His assets are all mine
it’s just like having
an eternal credit line.

I withdraw from it often,
but I never take a loss
for the rates are based on
the finished work of the cross.

Jesus is my inheritance,
I trust Him with all my heart
for I am the beneficiary
of the grace that He imparts.

My trust fund is secure,
the dividends keep growing
I am very confident  . . .
to heaven ~ I’ll be going!

Heavenly Hugs ~

friend CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
So long my friend, I’ll miss you,
more than you will know . . .
I’ll miss the grains of grace
that in your blog, you daily sow.

I will miss your knowledge,
the Bible Studies you share
your reminding me always
in this world to be aware.

I will miss your wisdom,
the insights you’ve brought
I’ve grown in the lessons
you so faithfully taught.

You have been a blessing,
a source of my inspiration
for you’ve showered me
with love and appreciation.

You’ve been my on-line pal,
a buddy like no other . . .
it’s like God sent to me
my own blogging brother.

You will be in my prayers,
in my thoughts daily too
and I’ll ask the Lord
to cheer and comfort you.

This is not really goodbye,
for I know we’ll meet one day
and until we do my friend
I send “heavenly hugs” your way!

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

My dear blogging friend Gregory Lang has posted his last post.
My heart is sadden that He will not longer be able
to share his love for the Lord with us. I have
been so blessed by his ministry and ask you to pray with me
for God’s grace and mercy for Greg and his family.

~ I love you Greg ~

Sunrise ~

The Glory of the Lord Shines used with permission IBible Verses

Oh, Lord today I was breathless,
when I saw the beauty of Your love
while gazing at the sunrise
peaking through the skies above.

I watched as the stars disappeared,
fading with the dark of night
the morning first rays beaming
with Your glorious eternal light.

As the beauty rose up before me,
a crimson glow was all I could see
oh, Lord today I was breathless
as Your beauty surrounded me.

How I love these early mornings,
when I get a glimpse of You
watching Your love spread out
as Your glory shines through.

Lord,  You gave me this sunrise,
with just the stroke of Your hand
oh, Lord today I was breathless
as You lit up the whole land.

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 8:12
King James Version

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.”

Constant and True ~

Faithful and True ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When disappointed,
when all else fails
I know just One
whose love prevails.

God is the same,
year after year
He is unwavering
His way is always clear.

He remains faithful,
constant and true
the Rock for my soul
to anchor forever unto.

Merciful and loyal,
grace without an end
my eternal Helper
my life-saving Friend.

Trust worthy He is,
more than just reliable
for His every promise
are still redeemable.

When all else fails,
when I’m disappointed
I turn to  the unchangeable One
and in His love I am anointed!

Ask, Ask, Ask!

God is Good used with permision IBible Verses

Ask the Lord for help,
don’t hold back a request
ask Him for your daily needs
then let Him supply the rest.

Ask as though you’re a beggar,
as if you had naught a thing
ask knowing God will provide
then watch what He will bring.

Ask for a deeper understanding,
wisdom above everything else
ask to stay true to His teachings
not to be led away by the false.

Ask according to His perfect will,
while sticking close to His laws
ask in the name of the Father
then confess to Him your flaws.

Ask God for assurance,
then rest and just believe
ask trusting in His provisions
then see what you’ll receive.

Ask for whatever you desire,
for God is up to the task
but ~ first you must remember
to ask . . . ask . . . ask!

“And I say unto you,
Ask, and it shall be given you;

Trust ~ Delight ~ Commit

God is Faithfull by Nathan Vanhorn CreationSwap

Trust in the Lord and do good,
do what you know you should
give to Him your every need
then on His faithfulness feed.

Delight yourself in the Lord,
the crown of life is your award
your heart desires He’ll grant
for He’s the God of can’s not cant’s.

Commit your ways to the Lord,
eternal life will be your reward
go to Him each day in prayer
and give to Him your every care.

Rest in the Lord and wait,
He will not let you faint
be not anxious or worried
for, God is not to be hurried.

Trust in the Lord and commit,
in His Word stay well and fit
rest in the truth and be still
and delight in doing His will!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:3-4
King James Version

“Trust in the Lord, and do good;
so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed.
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.

God’s Wonders are All Around ~

His Wonderous Works used with permission Doorpost Verses on facebook

God’s wonders are all around,
so many blessings for you to see
just use your imagination . . .
come now take a look with me.

You’ll see one in a sunset,
another when it’s on its rise
casting its beauty upon us
splendor right before our eyes.

You’ll hear one in the finch’s song,
listen to the tune he sings
melodies that takes on flight
soaring high on golden wings.

You’ll smell one in the sweet breeze,
blowing across the garden path
blossoms budding and spilling forth
with the same scents filling up your bath.

You’ll taste one on a Sunday night,
when mom has something in the oven
and the family is gathered all around
to feast on her home cooked lovin.

It’s not too hard to find the blessings,
that comes disguised to us each day
just look past what is expected . . .
and you’ll find them beyond the fray!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 40:5
King James Version

“Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works
which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward:
they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee:
if I would declare and speak of them,
they are more than can be numbered.”
