Easer Of My Care ~

Lord of my comfort,
easer of my care . . .
I praise You for always
being for me there.

Through all the trials,
the concern and worry
You give me the faith
to make the journey.

Lord of my grace,
forgiver of my sin
Your perfect peace
I now have within.

Though I am weak,
you’ve made me strong
no longer are You angry
for the things I did wrong.

Lord of my life,
reliever of my fear
You give me hope . . .
just knowing You’re near!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 12:1

And in that day thou shalt say,
O Lord, I will praise thee:
though thou wast angry with me,
thine anger is turned away,

and thou comfortedst me.

The Cloud of Past Sin ~

When the cloud of past sin,
darkens up your way . . .
remember God wiped out
misdeeds of yesterday.

He remembers never more,
the wicked things once done
now He only sees you through
the grace of His Son.

When the cloud of former sin,
moves across your path . . .
remember you no longer
will have to face God’s wrath.

He forgets all about,
your former wickedness
now He only sees you through
the eyes of righteousness.

When the cloud of ancient sin,
starts to descend down upon you
remember God has blotted out . . .
your past from His eternal view!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 44:22

I have blotted out,
as a thick cloud,
thy transgressions,
and, as a cloud, thy sins:
return unto me;
for I have redeemed thee.

Forgiveness Is Like An Eraser ~

 Forgiveness is like an eraser,
God wipes our sins away
once we confess and repent
for them we don’t have to pay.

For, the slate He rubs clean,
of our every offense
tis why He sent Jesus . . .
to come to our defense.

God doesn’t keep a notebook,
filled up with all our failures
He doesn’t use a magic marker
to highlight our bad behaviors.

For, the only list He is keeping,
are names in the Book of Life
tis why He sent Jesus . . .
to bear the brunt of our strife.

Forgiveness is like an eraser,
the slate has been wiped cleaned
ever since Jesus gave His own life
so ours could be redeemed!

~~~~~~

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.

I have blotted out, as a thick cloud,
thy transgressions, and, as a cloud,
thy sins: return unto me;
for I have redeemed thee.

A Merciful Heart ~

Lord, give me a heart merciful,
tender, ready to forgive
give me a heart of kindness
not one testy and combative.

Let it be a heart of compassion,
filled with Your loving grace
Lord, give me a heart lenient
as Yours is for the human race.

Lord, give me a heart merciful,
overflowing with Your goodness
give me a heart sympathetic
not one cold, bitter or ruthless.

Let it be a heart of empathy,
where pardon makes its home
Lord, give me a heart benevolent
like Yours is from Your throne.

Lord, give me a heart merciful,
one that’s animosity free
give me a heart forgiving
just like Yours is towards me!

~~~~~~~~

“For he shall have judgment

Forgiveness Will Not Come Unless ~

Forgiveness is impossible,
in hearts not Spirit filled
forgiveness will not come . . .
unless in God, hearts are stilled.

Forgiveness is unlikely,
in hearts made of stone
forgiveness will not come . . .
unless in God, hearts are His own.

Forgiveness will not happen,
in hearts that blame and resent
forgiveness will not come . . .
unless in God, hearts are content.

Forgiveness is unachievable,
in hearts that are not forgiven
forgiveness will not come . . .
unless in God new hearts are given.

Forgiveness is impossible,
in hearts without Jesus
forgiveness will not come until . . .
a heart of flesh He puts in us!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

Do Not Be Troubled ~

do-not-be-troubled-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Do not be troubled,
do not be afraid
though you think Jesus
your heart has betrayed.

For, there isn’t anything,
stopping Him from loving You
even when you deny Him
in the things you say and do.

Do not be downcast,
do not be disheartened
though Jesus you’ve failed
He has not departed.

For, Jesus sees you’re weak,
He knows you’re in distress
all He wants from you . . .
is your failures to confess.

Do not be troubled,
don’t stay from Him away
Jesus wants to restore
your faith, in Him today!

~~~~~~~~

John 13:37-38

“Peter said unto him,
Lord, why cannot I follow
thee now? I will lay down
my life for thy sake.

Jesus answered him,
Wilt thou lay down thy life
for my sake? Verily, verily,
I say unto thee, The cock
shall not crow, till thou
hast denied me thrice.

“Let not your heart
be troubled:
ye believe in God,
believe also in me.”

The Heart of Flesh ~

The Heart of Flesh ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The heart of stone says,
you, I’ll never forgive
the one of flesh replies
more love to you I’ll give.

The heart of stone says,
get far away from me
the one of flesh responds
I’ll show you more mercy.

The heart of stone says,
I don’t what to see your face
the one of flesh implores
to you I’ll give more grace.

The heart of stone says,
I don’t want you here
the one of flesh reacts
for you I’m always near.

The heart of stone says,
you, have hurt me so
the one of flesh answers
I’ll let the past things go.

The heart of stone says,
from me get thee away
the one of flesh believes
in doing things God’s way!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

God Remembers No More ~

Remember No More ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God remembers no more,
our sin, our disgrace . . .
His mercy forgets them
thru our faith in His grace.

Our past shortcomings,
He’ll not again analyze
for our former failures
we won’t be penalized.

God remembers no more,
our mistakes, our shame
on our souls He took pity
so His peace we could claim.

All of our rebellion,
He envisions no more
our earlier transgressions
He’ll not again explore.

God remembers no more,
our shame, our sin . . .
no longer do we need
to carry disgrace within!

God’s Forgiveness ~

God's Forgiveness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s forgiveness,
is limitless
His long-suffering
is timeless.

It is non-stopple,
it’s boundless
it is without borders
it’s endless.

God’s forgiveness,
is inexhaustible
His love for us
it’s incomprehensible.

It is vast,
it’s immeasurable
it is immense
it’s perpetual.

God’s forgiveness,
is everlasting
His patience is beyond
our understanding!

God’s Mercy, Love and Grace ~

God's Grace, Mercy and Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Sometimes my mind wanders,
all over the place . . .
but, it always comes back
to God’s amazing grace.

Some days I try to make it,
on my very own . . .
but, I’m always lead back
to God’s loving throne.

Sometimes my faith,
begins to doubt and waiver
but, I’m always brought back
to God’s abundant favor.

Sometimes for my wrongs,
I still feel I am guilty
but, it always comes around
to God’s tender mercy.

Sometimes my feet roam,
as I run the faithful race . . .
but, they always return
to God’s mercy, love and grace!

Guilt Free ~

Not Guitly used with permission IBible Verses

God, forgives you,
and you must too
or else your guilt
will eat away at you.

Guilt is your enemy,
it devours the soul
only Jesus can heal
and make it whole.

Guilt condemns you,
it’ll convict and blame
only Jesus’ love bears
all of your shame.

Guilt is destructive,
with it you’ll contend
but, on Jesus’ grace
you can depend.

God, forgives you,
and you must too
for Jesus took guilt’s
punishment for you!

The Root of Bitterness ~

The Root of Bitterness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The root of bitterness,
digs deep into our soul
fighting so ever hard
to take complete control.

It’s entirely entrenched,
in resentment and regret
holds tightly to our heart
so the past we’ll not forget.

It puts a choke hold on,
the thoughts in our mind
in the hopes God’s peace
we won’t be able to find.

It establishes itself,
before we even know
until on the outside
our anger starts to show.

The only way to kill,
the root of bitterness
is to apply to it . . .
God’s love and forgiveness!

~~~~~~~

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger,

be put away from you, with all malice:”

The Candle of My Soul ~

Love candle by Russell Matin free photo #1004

Lord light the wick,
to the candle of my soul
so I can peer into . . .
each crevice, every hole.

Let Your light shine,
on any leftover sin
that is still hiding
unrepented, deep within.

Turn up the heat,
keep fanning the flame
until I call out . . .
each sin by its name.

Let Your light expose,
in my heart, let it reveal
every evil notion
I still try to conceal.

Turn up the heat,
keep fanning the flame
until I call out . . .
each thought by its name.

Lord light the wick,
to the candle of my soul
until forgiveness  . . .
fills up each gaping hole!

I Forgive You ~

Forgive ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

God forgives me,
and you, I do too
though I’m not happy
with the things, you do.

But, by His grace,
and mercies ever tender
a forgiving heart to you
I am willing to render.

God forgives me,
I am not without sin
daily over kindness
there’s a battle, to win.

But, in His strength,
I fight off the attack
turning to Jesus for
the meekness, I lack.

God forgives you,
for what you’ve done
I forgive you too . . .
because of His Son!

~~~~~~~~~

Forgiveness in the Son ~

forgiveness CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s not that I don’t remember,
it’s just that I choose to forget
my life as I lived it . . .
before the day Jesus and I met.

It’s not that I can’t recall,
the places that I have been
but, I know it’s just the devil
who wants to visit my past sin.

It’s not that I don’t regret,
or feel the shame of disgrace
it’s just that I know I’m forgiven
because of Jesus’ awesome grace.

It’s not that I don’t consider,
my life before I was saved
it’s just that I don’t want to be
to my former days enslaved.

So, don’t throw in others faces,
the wrong things they have done
for, we’re all a bunch of sinners
needing to forgive every one!

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

Isaiah 38:17

“Behold, for peace I had great bitterness:
but thou hast in love to my soul delivered
it from the pit of corruption:
for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.

Just Like Peter!

Messed Up by kelly Sikkema free photo #16451

Lord, how many times have I denied You,
unlike Peter, I know of more than three
yet, just like Peter all I really wanted
was to follow and go along with Thee.

Lord, how many times did I reject,
the promises I found in Your Word
for, when faced with life’s impossibilities
I acted as if these truths, I never heard.

Lord, how many times did I refuse,
the path You had laid out for me
for, when my selfish pride took control
Your plans I didn’t want to see.

Lord, how many times did I decline,
Your mercy and endless grace
for, when I found  true contentment
it wasn’t You, who I embraced.

Lord, how many times have I denied,
too many to count, I do fear
that is why today I offer You . . .
my repentant, regretful tears!

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

Matthew 26:75

“And Peter remembered the word of Jesus,
which said unto him, Before the cock crow,
thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out,

The Treasure of My Tears ~

Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

Lord, how wonderful is Your compassion,
that You would notice all my fears
how tender is Your undying love
that You’ve numbered all my tears.

My tears are like a treasure,
to You when they fall
for when I’m in need of comfort
it’s on Your name that I call.

You know of my past afflictions,
You’ve seen my seasons of drought
You watched as I have struggled
when with You I had my doubt.

And though I have strayed,
my heart always belonged to You
it’s because of Your great love
my wanderings weren’t accrued.

Lord, how wonderful You are,
for being with me all these years
how tender for me is Your mercy
as You gather up my repentant tears!

Heart Matter ~

Forgiveness used with permission Doorpost Verses

Bitterness is resentment’s kin,
the two go hand in hand
when one falls down the other one
will be there to help it stand.

Bitterness says I won’t forgive,
resentment tells you why
put them both together
and you’ll hear their heated cry.

Bitterness blames everyone,
other than its own self
resentment holds on to the past
so not to incriminate itself.

Bitterness can’t believe,
all the bad things that have happen
resentments says it’s just not fair
and others shouldn’t be forgiven.

Bitterness excels at hurtful things,
resentment can do even better
and when they work collectively
Jesus can’t get to the heart matter.

in the gall of bitterness,

The Power of Forgiveness ~

Forgiveness used with permission Doorpost Verses

There is nothing quite like,
the power of forgiveness
nothing is so freeing
as letting go of bitterness.

There nothing quite like,
forgiving and forgetting
undoing the damage done
without doubt or regretting.

There is nothing quite like,
a heart willing to believe
the words ~ I am sorry
so peace it can receive.

There is nothing quite like,
mending hurt feelings
resolving lifelong issues
to bring inner healing.

There is nothing quite like,
the attitude of humility
letting go and letting God
turn discord into tranquility.

There is nothing quite like,
the power of God’s grace
the pure joy of release
when forgiveness we embrace!

Broken Wings ~

Breath Deep used with permission IBible Verses

With tattered wings,
God’s eagles fly
but they can’t soar
up too high.

For on their wings,
they carry pain
to reach new heights
would be a strain.

Broken wings,
can’t take on air
life to them
has been so unfair.

Hurt has clipped,
their wings spread
all the eagles know
is what they dread.

Eagles wings,
chained to the past
cannot take off
no matter the draft.

They need Jesus,
to set them free
from all the drama
and its misery.

Only then,
can they soar and fly
when to their past
they let it die!

No ~ Not Even One!

10 Comandments used with permission Creation Swap

Her heart was filled with lust,
her spirit was broken down
she was sought by the men
who lived all through her town.

She lived her life in darkness,
she knew she would be stoned
yet, she carried on in her sin
till her secret was made known.

They caught her red-handed,
right in the sinful act
and they brought her to Jesus
with all the details of the fact.

They asked Him to judge her,
to indict her for her sin
they even called Him their Master
in hopes a ruling they would win.

He knew she was an adulterous,
told the blood thirsty crowd so
then He said, “You without sin”
go ahead and cast the first throw.

They caught her in her sin,
they saw the crime she had done
but they could not condemn her
no ~ not even one!

What if Jesus?

Forgive

I question those Christians,
who say they love the Lord
and yet to forgive others
their hearts can’t get on board.

They tithe and go to church,
sometimes they read their Bible
but to those who’ve hurt them
they still hold them accountable.

They’ve chosen not to forget,
nor give to God their pain
to do so would mean
their suffering would be in vain.

For deep in their souls,
they’ve become the judge
and to forgive others means
their hearts would have to budge.

So they cling on to the past,
with hearts as cold as stone
instead of letting God
judge from His throne.

I wonder if they ever think,
what if Jesus had thought this way
I wonder what these Christians . . .
would then have to say!

Not Guilty!

Saved by Jon Tomero free photo #7929

I have walked on this earth,
for many, many years . . .
I’ve stumbled and I’ve fallen
over my doubts and my fears.

Many times I have thought,
another step I could not take
and life’s troubling journey
I just did not want to make.

I struggled with the frantic pace,
I wrestled with the anxious stride
until the day, I came to realize
I was marching to my own pride.

I knew I needed deliverance,
from the course that I was on
and that is when I felt my life
to God being forever drawn.

He set me on a new path,
and saved me from the pit
He found me not guilty
and my sins, He did acquit!

The Sweetest Word I Know!

Will Your Forgive Me by Jason Sheveland free photo #6130

There is no other sweeter word,
that I have yet to hear . . .
there is no other sound of hope
that has fallen on my guilty ear.

There is no other pardon,
that’ll remove my crimson stain
there is no other sure release
to which my soul will ever gain.

There is no other freedom,
that I have yet to find . . .
there is no other liberation
of my soul, heart and mind.

There is nothing else like it,
nothing my ears have ever heard
 . . . forgiveness . . .
is that sweet blessed word!

God doesn’t care about . . .
our should have’s and only if’s

He won’t dig up the wild seeds,
that in our life we have sown
He only cares from our mistakes
if in His wisdom, we have grown.

He doesn’t make our skeletons,
come back to taunt or haunt us
for when we confess our sins
He throws them under the bus.

God doesn’t sits around stewing,
over the errors we have made
He doesn’t want our minds troubled

where we go from here and now
and our should have’s and only if’s
He no longer wants us to avow!

What’s Your Rock?

What punishment will you give,

Will your sentence be a living hell . . .

Goodbye to Guilt . . .

For years with guilt and shame,
I wrestled and I fought . . .
thinking that it was the payment
that all my sins had bought.

It was hard to move forward,
they kept pushing me back
I thought it was my punishment
for the faith that I lacked.

Whenever I would forget them,
Satan came along to remind
and with each remembrance
they became harder to put behind.

Then one day the Lord asked me,
“Why did I die for you?”
And after that conversation,
I knew what I had to do.

I said goodbye to guilt,
and bid farewell to all my shame
for Jesus took them upon Himself
and He endured all my blame.

For years with guilt and shame,
I wrestled and fought . . .
but then Jesus reminded me
“If you hold on to them . . .

. . . I died for naught.”

I’m Not Perfect!

PEELED BY JOE CAVAZOS FREE PHOTO #9621

 Sorry, but I am not perfect,
I know you think I should be
and you don’t want to hear
that Jesus has forgiven me.

Sorry, but I am not perfect,
there’s lots left for God to do
it’s going to take some time
for His image to shine through.

Sorry, but I am not perfect,
I have taken a lot of missteps
but, every day I am striving
to walk in His footsteps.

Sorry, but I am not perfect,
you can judge me if you like
call me a fraud, a phony but . . .
someday Jesus and I will look-alike.

Sorry, but I am not perfect,
for the narrow way is straight
at times I’ve wandered off it
for I was lured by Satan’s bait.

Sorry, God knows I’m not perfect,
I’m sorry we have different views
but, you’ll never know what it takes
unless you’ve walked in my shoes!

Where There’s Forgiveness ~

Where There Is Forgiveness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah amm

Where there is forgiveness,
there is relief
where there is forgiveness
there is belief.

For, when you forgive someone,
God will set your heart free
and from the pain and hurt
He will heal your memory.

Where there is forgiveness
there is love
where there is forgiveness
there is a God above.

For, when you forgive another,
God’s love you will release
and the anguish that you feel
will turn to everlasting peace.

Where there is forgiveness,
there is light
where there is forgiveness
there is new sight.

For, when you forgive someone,
God’s own heart will shine through
and you’ll see all the reasons
why Jesus died for you!

~~~~~~~~~~

Guilt Defeated . . .

Guilt is just a word,
that gets in our way
we often trip upon it
as we go about the day.

It’s Satan’s wisest tool,
in his shed of endless blame
it’s meant to provoke in us
a sense of regret and shame.

He takes out his pick,
and chips away at our soul
uncovering all our faults
is his deceitful goal.

He uses guilt to remind us,
of the mistakes we have made
not wanting us to forget them
nor let their memories fade.

With his axe and shovel,
he digs for us a pit
telling us as Christians
we’re not really fit.

So, the next time you feel,
guilt tugging at your feet
call out the name of Jesus
and Satan you’ll defeat!

A Mop and A Broom ~

A Mop and A Broom ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I wander through my mind,
go from room to room
and in each one I find
a mop and a broom.

In the room of transgression,
with all its dirt and grime
I sweep away all my sins
He washes away my crime.

In the room of worry,
with all its anxious fears
I sweep away my concerns
He washes away my tears.

In the room of sorrow,
with all the loss I’ve known
I sweep away my grief,
He washes away my groan.

In the room of troubles,
with all its weight and pain
I sweep away my faults
He washes away the stain.

In the room of doubt,
with every regret and qualm
I sweep away my disbelief
He washes me with His calm.

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 51:2
King James Version

“Wash me throughly
from mine iniquity,

and cleanse me
from my sin.”

A Mournful Spirit

How to Wreck Your Life by Kyle Reed free photo #10094

Lord, give me a mournful spirit,
as my sins rise to the surface
let me feel the pangs of anguish
for being to You ~ a disservice.

I know I have hurt You,
how disloyal  to You I’ve been
now I see through the darkness
and recognize the pain of my sin.

I once thought I was wealthy,
but now I know that I am poor
I thought I could squeak my way
into heaven’s back door.

But, this could never happen,
for I have broken Your heart
and unless I am truly repentant
from You ~ I’ll always be apart.

So, I am bowing down before You,
my tears are asking You to forgive
all the disfavor I have brought You
for my life to You ~ I want to give.

Lord, bless me with Your comfort,
come and bring my heart relief
while I express to You my sorrow
for causing You . . . so much grief!

“Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.”

At The Foot of The Cross

Once, I was so dreadfully wrenched,
there was nothing good about me
I had falling into that bottomless pit
and made friends with the old enemy.

Satan took me to places I never dreamed of,
and all of his crafty lies I soon believed
he took from me all that I had faith in
and his evil deceptions I gladly received.

Then the Lord began to open up my eyes,
and I saw I was living my life on hell’s rim
so, He took me to the foot of the Cross
and told me to leave all my sins with Him.

As I knelt and confessed before Him,
His crimson blood dripped down on me
and all of the grime from my sinful past
Christ promised to no longer see.

As I rose and moved away from His feet,
I carried not one single burden with me
but I continue to let my past keep me humble
so that at the foot of the Cross – I’ll always be!

Philippians 2:8
King James Version

“And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself and became obedient
to the point of death, even the death
of the cross.”

When Other’s Won’t Forgive

 

When other’s won’t forgive,
when they hold the past over you
when they say it’s all your fault
and you’re the blame for what they do.

When forgiveness isn’t in their heart,
when they’ve turned away from you
when they won’t let you forget your sins
and your guilt, they hotly pursue.

When saying you’re sorry isn’t enough,
when they’ve sentenced you to a living hell
when they continue to put you down
and instead of talking, they scream and yell.

That’s when you need to turn to Jesus,
and cling to the promise of the Cross
for Jesus understands your imperfection
and will not consider you  like  dross.

There you will find forgiveness,
not the memories of the sins of your past
there you’ll find tender-hearted compassion
that to eternity . . . will last.

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

Daniel 9:9
King James Version

“To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses,
though we have rebelled against him;”

Thru The Window of My Soul ~

Thru the window of my soul,
God looks inside and sees
the wickedness of my heart
and it takes me to my knees.

I fall upon the ground,
weeping from my disgrace
from His searching eyes
I try to hide my face.

Though I have repented,
confessed to Jesus all my sin
I can’t help but feel the pain
I’ve caused Him deep within.

I lift myself back up,
my soul is still downcast
but I know He’s forgiven me
from the sins of my past.

Thru the window of my soul,
God sees my sins no more
for, He has cast them all out
so my heart He could restore!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 38:17

“Behold, for peace I had great bitterness:
but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it
from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast
all my sins behind thy back.”
