The Greatest Blessing of All ~

Blessings come great,
they too come small
and we need to be . . .
thankful for them all.

They come suddenly,
they come unexpected
they come anticipated
or when unsuspected.

Blessings come many,
they too come few
and we need to be . . .
grateful for them too.

They come in the morning,
when new mercies fall
they sometimes just come
when on God’s name we call.

They come in the warmth,
they come in the gloom
they come in winter’s chill
or on summer’s bloom.

Blessings come great,
they too come small
and Jesus is the greatest . . .
blessing of them all!

Ephesians 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father

Everyday Is A Blessing ~

Everyday is a blessing,
something to savor
everyday is a gift . . .

Everyday is a present,
to be unwrapped
everyday is a deluge

everyday is a chance
to give God our best.

Everyday is a blessing,
to be appreciated
everyday is a gift to us
God has orchestrated!

that winter’s harshness brings.

furnish our winter warmth
keeps us steadfastly
upon salvation’s hearth.

we are dependent on Thee!

Counting My Blessings ~

If I could add up,
all of my blessings
the total sum of them . . .
I’d only be guessing.

For, God sends to me,
new ones each day
yet, I don’t notice them
as they come my way.

If I’d only slow down,
I know I would see
the many blessings
He bestows on me.

For, God delivers to me,
mercy on a daily bases
and often I miss seeing . . .
the abundance of His graces.

If I could all my blessings,
harness and gather . . .
I know I would never stop
giving praise to my Father!

But my God shall supply all your need

Awesome Blossoms ~

Awesome blossoms,
buds of hope on a stem
my summer garden grows . . .
like my faith I have in Him.

In my flower beds,
each bloom provides
reminders to praise God
for all He supplies.

White and yellow daisies,
petals picked one by one
let know me how I am loved
by my Father and His Son.

Lavender branches,
tied up with some string
keepsakes of the future
and the peace He’s to bring.

Pink and blue forget-me-nots,
spread across the ground
reminding me to share
the Savior I have found.

Awesome blossoms,
summer arranged in a vase
each flower a memento . . .
of God’s love and grace!

His Eye Is On This Sparrow ~

His eye is on this sparrow,
He sees me as I fly
He notices me each day
that sweeps and passes by.

He hands me a flight plan,
as I open up my eyes
He charts out my course
upon my morning rise.

His eyes is on this sparrow,
He sees me as I soar
He hears my wings flapping
above the world’s roar.

He knows my ups and down,
yet He forgets me naught
He gives me the strength
when storms in life are fought.

His eye is on this sparrow,
He has me in His sight
He leads and He guides me
whenever I am in flight!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 10:29-31

Are not two sparrows sold
for a farthing? and one of
them shall not fall on the
ground without your Father.

But the very hairs of your
head are all numbered.

Fear ye not therefore,
ye are of more value than
many sparrows.

Blessing Counting ~

Don’t number your burdens,
instead count your blessings
for burden counting, adding
can be gloomy and depressing.

So let your mind run free,
and add up all the ways
God has provided you . . .
with your needs each day.

Don’t list your complaints,
instead tally up God’s benefits
for complaining, tallying
has disheartening elements.

So let your heart begin,
to list the hopeful things
everyday into your life
Jesus sends and brings.

Don’t list all of your have-nots,
rather count the good things God has given
when your done the total sum . . .
will add up to the reasons you’re forgiven!

My cup is full of hope,
that keeps expanding
for its full of life
blissfully unending.

My cup is full of peace,
of a future brighter
for I know Jesus is
salvation’s provider.

My cup is quite full,
joy flows past the brim
for my life to Jesus . . .
I’ve surrendered to Him!

into You to keep pressing.

may they keep their minds . . .
and hearts in You steadfast!

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.”

I am blessed to read
of every assurance

God hears all my prayers
I have affirmation
Jesus takes my cares.

I have a guarantee,
temptation I can flee
I have a crown of life
that is awaiting me.

I have a promise,
death I will not fear
I have an insurance
Jesus is always near.

I have a sureness,
I’ll not hunger or thirst
I have the authority
to always seek God first.

I have a confirmation,
I am God’s child
I have a surety
in Jesus I’m reconciled.

Each time I read my Bible,
there are blessings of assurance
to which I’ll hold tight . . .
until Jesus’ reappearance!

My Portion ~

The Lord is My Portion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Lord is my portion,
He is my all and all

when to Him I injure
He grants my spiritual wants
for He is my faith supplier.

The Lord is my contentment,
He is my true happiness
He gives my heart and soul
assurance, hope and gladness.

I know I can count on Him,
to make my cup full . . .

when push comes to pull.

in my life, I daily apply!

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!

Lord, I Looked for You Today ~

The Lord is Good ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission Doorpost Verses

Lord, I looked for you today
Daughter, I saw you . . .

From the time I woke up
Upon your arising . . .

In the early morning light
I was the sunrise that greeted you . . .

During the afternoon heat
I was the warmth of your day . . .

Through the chill of the night
I cooled down your evening . . .

Till the time I laid down
I was the peace that you felt . . .

But, you were nowhere to be found
But, you were always in My sight . . .

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 pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of

any virtue, and if there be
any praise, think on these things.”

There are many blessings,
that each new Spring brings

and hear the song it sings.

With winters bleakness over,
and brighter days ahead

with the promise to provide
a shelter under His mighty wing
where in His love we can abide.

and the real blessing of Spring . . .

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 ~

Heaven’s One ~

holyspirit-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A faithful Father, a loyal Son,
a willing Spirit ~ Heavens One.

A universe, a day – a week,
an open door, for those who seek.

A tombstone covers, an open grave,
a promise kept, a world saved.

A young man’s fate, in a lion’s den,
a second coming, we know not when.

A fearful people, pass through the sea,
a cross on Calvary, sets all men free.

A woman forgiven, besides a well,
a world spinning, on the edge of hell.

A Fathers grace sent on a Dove,
a dying Son, whose name is Love ~

~~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:7
King James Version

“For there are three that bear record in heaven,
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:
and these three are one.

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
as the early morning rays beamed
with the hope of eternal light.

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

How I cherish these mornings,
when I get a glimpse of You
spreading Your mercy around
so Your glory can shine through.

Lord, You gave me this sunrise,
with just the stroke of Your hand
oh, Lord today I was breathless
as Your love 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 onto.

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

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

When all else fails,
when I’m disappointed
to the unchangeable One
I turn to be 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!

Promises Galore ~

Limitless God used with permission IBible VErses
Lord, when I’m feeling beaten,
when l feel trodden on and down
You promised I’d be a conqueror
and to give me victories crown.

And when I’m feeling bound up,
when my spirit’s tied up in knots
You promised to be my deliverer
and to capture all my thoughts.

And when I’m feeling confused,
when my mind wanders about
You promised to be my counselor
and to rid me of all my doubt.

And when I’m feeling like a failure,
when my life is but a mess
You promised I’d be an overcomer
and to help me to onward press.

And when I’m feeling fearful,
when anxiety has me in a stew
You promised me Your power
and a mind that is sound too.

And when I’m feeling lonesome,
when no one else comes into my day
You promised to be my forever Friend
and my companion along the way.

Lord, when the day comes to an end,
when darkness captures the night
You promised to be my lamp . . .
and Your Word to be my light!

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

2 Peter 1:4

“Whereby are given unto us

having escaped the corruption
that is in the world through lust.”

Trust ~ Delight ~ Commit

God is Faithfull by Nathan Vanhorn CreationSwap

Trust in the Lord and do good,
do what you know you should

your heart desires He’ll grant
for He’s the God of can’s not cant’s.

Commit your ways to the Lord,

and give to Him your every care.

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!

desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the Lord;
trust also in him;
and he shall bring it to pass.

Going Home ~

Going Home ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I know the valley is before me,
there’s nothing for me to fear
alone I’ll walk death’s path
but, God promises to be near.

His love shall be my comfort,
His strength will get me through
on the other side of the shadow
His light shines bright and true.

I will go to sleep in darkness,
awake to find eternal peace
His glory will bring me happiness
my joy will never end or cease.

The shadow looms ahead of me,
in a future time that is unknown
but, I haven’t anything to fear . . .
for, I’ll just be going home!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4
King James Version

“Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

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.”

Blessed are The Meek ~

Blessed Are by Joe Cacazos free photo #5225

Blessed are those who are humble,
those who are submissive and meek
those who give themselves to God
who’s will they obediently seek.

Blessed are those who are gentle,
those who are patient and tolerant
those who are rarely provoked
who are restrained and moderate.

Blessed are those who are tranquil,
those who are calm and serene
those who are unruffled and relaxed
who God’s peace they quietly glean.

Blessed are those who are gracious,
those who are forgiving and kind
those who are polite and respectful
who love with their whole heart and mind.

Blessed are those who are patient,
those who don’t grumble or complain
those who accept what God offers
who endure the good with the pain.

Blessed are those who are humble,
those who live under God’s control
the earth is theirs to inherit . . .
for they love Jesus with all of their  soul!

The Fullness of God ~

Living in Fullness by Joe Krow free photo 4783

He isn’t the God,
of the have or have not’s
He is the God . . .
for all of our needs and wants.

He isn’t the God,
of the half-full, half-empty
He is the God . . .
who has for each one plenty.

He isn’t the God,
of only the poor in spirit
He is the God . . .
for every soul to inherit.

He isn’t the God,
of only the one who fears
He is the God . . .
who sees everyone’s tears.

He isn’t the God,
of only the meek and poor
He is the God . . .
knocking on every heart’s door.

He isn’t the God,
of only the deaf or mute
He is the God . . .
that is absolute.

He isn’t the God,
made up of iron or stone
He is the God . . .
who sits on heaven’s throne!

Autumn Blessings ~

Autumn Blessings ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Autumn brings to the soul relief,
as hot Summer days, slip to an end
God sent the season for weary hearts
to restore, repair and mend.

Unlike the Autumn trees,
that shed their changing leaves
God sent the season for failing hearts
to adhere, embrace and cleave.

Just as with the Autumn winds,
there comes a new refreshing rain
God sent the season for fraying hearts
to increase, grow and gain.

The Autumn sun is slow to climb,
and dips much earlier into the night
God sent the season for sleepy hearts
to rise, shine and awake in His light.

God gave to us the Autumn season,
so we could have a respite and rest
for it is the season for our beset souls
to see how much we are blessed!

“Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoiceth:

in hope.”
