In God’s Holy Presence ~

In God’s holy presence,
there’s joy in its fullness
pleasures circulating
His everlasting goodness.

There is peace and hope,
a spreading of refreshing
an ongoing revolving
of life-changing blessings.

In God’s holy presence,
there’s mercy restoring
upon the Holy Spirit’s
heart filling outpouring.

There’s an internal calm,
an outgoing of favor
the ongoing flowing
of grace from a Savior.

In God’s holy presence,
here and above . . .
there’s an effortless flow
of steadfast love!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

We All Need Jesus ~

 

We all need grace,
sufficient and amble
we need a full dose
not just a small sample.

We all need mercy,
tender and abundant
we need a taste of it
glorious and triumphant.

We all need compassion,
precious and priceless
we need an infusion
of God’s forgiveness.

We all need love,
eternal and everlasting
we need an injection
of peace that’s surpassing.

We all need Jesus,
each and every one of us
we need someone whom
with our soul we can trust!

The Many Facet’s of Grace ~

There are many facets,
to God’s grace . . .
and each one of them
we need to embrace.

There is an abundance,
of grace sufficient . . .
to abound in all things
and make us resilient.

There is a flooding,
of grace restoring . . .
to help keep us from
hopelessly despairing.

There is an overflowing,
of grace comforting . . .
when from heartbreak
we are suffering.

There is an outpouring,
of grace restraining . . .
to overcome temptation
and from sin entertaining.

There is a flooding,
of grace sanctifying . . .
to  live our life’s holy
and not self-satisfying

There are many facets,
to God’s grace . . .
and Jesus showed them all
when He died in our place!

“And of his fulness
have all we received,
and grace for grace.

The Gospel of Grace ~

The Gospel of Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I believe in the Gospel of grace,
by faith and by faith alone . . .
I believe only through Jesus’ blood
the sins of mankind are atoned.

I believe grace cleanses,
the effects of evil and sin
I believe Jesus our very souls
died so them He could win.

I believe grace pardons,
the guilty and shamed face
I believe Jesus upon Himself
took the brunt of our disgrace.

I believe graces heals,
the hurt, the pain, the ache
I believe Jesus our hearts
can soften, reform and remake.

I believe grace gives rest,
to the depressed and friendless
I believe Jesus came to save
all who are lonely and hopeless.

I believe in the Gospel of grace,
by faith and nothing more . . .
I believe God’s gift of grace
redeems, heals and restores!

The Grace of A Savior ~

God has for us,
an overflowing supply
of mercy and grace
for us to daily apply.

We can put it on,
be it night or day
we just need to ask
for it, when we pray.

Abundant it is,
it will never run out
it’s what being forgiven
is really all about.

God will release it,
as we require
for granting it to us
is His heart’s desire.

For all those in need,
of God’s mercy and favor
all you need is faith . . .
and the grace of a Savior!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:1-2

“Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ:

By whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

We All Have A Past ~

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all cringe . . .
at the memories they bring.

We all need to find,
God’s favor and grace
we all need God’s mercy
so the past we can face.

We all have feelings,
of resentment and ill-will
we all wince . . .
at how others make us feel.

We all need to find,
God’s healing peace
we all need God’s mercy
so our pain He can release.

We all have suffered,
the heartache of rejection
we all recoil . . .
when the past we mention.

We all need to find,
God’s way to forgiveness
we all need God’s mercy
so we can be rid of bitterness.

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all need God’s mercy
and the grace that it brings!

Nothing We Can Do ~

nothing-we-can-do-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There’s nothing we can do,
to purchase salvation
no works, no deeds
will buy our redemption.

There’s not one thing,
that will earn us freedom
no activity, no action
will warrant us a pardon.

There’s not a single thing,
that’ll save us from sin
no method, no procedure
can remove the evil within.

There’s nothing we can say,
that’ll keep us from hell
no words, no benediction
can our spiritual death dispel.

There is only one thing,
that we need to do . . .
and God that is by faith to accept
the gift of grace from You!

Grace to The Rescue ~

Grace To The Resuce ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Grace restores,
the broken pieces
fills in the cracks
smooths the creases.

Grace heals,
the heart that aches
mends the wounds
patches the scrapes.

Grace renews,
the mind unraveled
reinforces the thoughts
that have been tangled.

Grace reaffirms,
the soul wanting
provides the strength
brings the calming.

Grace restores,
heals and renews
Grace always comes
to our rescue!

“Being justified freely
by his grace through
the redemption that
is in Christ Jesus:”

It’s About the Grace ~

It’s all about the grace,
not about the works . . .
it’s all about freedom
with eternal perks.

For grace is liberating,
it’s soul freeing too
and it’s not something
you get, by what you do.

It’s all about grace,
God’s mercy and favor
it’s all about having faith
in your Lord and Savior.

For grace is forgiving,
there is no cost to you
Jesus paid the price in full
leaving us nothing left to do.

It’s all about grace,
the confession of sin
it’s all about repentance
that comes from deep within.

For grace will set you free,
from the inside out . . .
it’ll cast out every fear
take away all the doubt.

It’s all about the grace,
liberating and freeing
it will turn you away from
the sinful life you’re living!

Embracing Grace ~

Embracing Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I always loved the thought,
of eternal grace . . .
in my mind forgiveness
I was able to embrace.

I knew of God’s mercy,
heard about His wrath
in my mind I could see
the straight, narrow path.

I knew of His Spirit,
the gifts He bestowed
in my mind I’d could see
from where they flowed.

I knew I was hopeless,
as I listened to the Word
in my mind I envisioned
every truth that I heard.

I knew I was a sinner,
I thought I was saved
but, still to the world . . .
I knew I was enslaved.

I always loved the thought,
of embracing grace . . .
but now in my heart and soul
it too has a place!

“And he answering said,
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with all thy heart, and with all

and with all thy mind;

The True Grace of God ~

One Grace used with permission IBible Verses

May the true grace of God,
change you from within
may it set you free . . .
from the bondage of sin.

May the true grace of God,
you put on today
may from worldly lusts
you turn and walk away.

May the true grace of God,
bring about new life
may with temptation
you no longer have strife.

May the true grace of God,
lead you to holiness
may to Calvary’s cross
you come with lowliness.

May the true grace of God,
be not taken in vain
may in your heart and soul
Jesus live and reign!

The Root of Grace ~

grow-in-grace-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, may the root of grace,
dig deeper into my soul
may it work its way through
until it takes control.

May it feed upon Your Word,
bring to me awareness
how showing others grace . . .
is all about Your fairness.

May it firmly be established,
so it can bear good fruit
may it increase and grow
until mercy too, takes root.

May it ooze from my heart,
like sap from a tree
just as it did that day . . .
when You died for me.

Lord, may the root of grace,
dig deeper into my life . . .
may it prosper in the good times
and prevail whenever there is strife!

The Arms of Grace ~

come-to-jesus CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Throughout my life,
I have found a  place
where I can escape . . .
from the  rat race.

It’s a perfect spot,
to let it all go . . .
a space to unwind
so peace can flow.

It’s not very far,
it’s easy to get to
shutting my eyes . . .
is all I have to do.

In my mind I envision,
till my heart can see
my Lord and Savior
right here, next to me.

Before too long,
His presence is real
and His calmness
I begin to feel.

Throughout my life,
I have found a  place
where I can escape . . .
into the arms of grace!

More Grace ~

grace CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, there is a void,
in the pit of my soul
it feels as if there is . . .
a big, gaping hole.

There is an emptiness,
deep inside my heart
I feel as if my world . . .
is unraveling apart.

There is a hollowness,
that my spirit senses
I feel as if I’m living . . .
under false pretenses.

There is an abyss,
a darkness, I can’t see
I feel as if it’s going to . . .
swallow up, the all of me.

Lord, there is a void,
a big, dark gaping space
I need You to fill it . . .
with more of Your grace!

A Merry Heart ~

Whenever you feel down,
whenever sad and blue
I’ve a dose of medicine
I know is good for you.

Take a cup of God’s mercy,
sip it throughout the day
it comes with a guarantee
to keep depression away.

God’s grace is a cure-all,
for all that is ailing you
it’s the antidote you need
on the days you are blue.

You will have true peace,
your heart will be merry
as you learn to trust Jesus
your burdens, He will carry.

Whenever feeling down,
let God’s mercy lift you up
with a dose of good cheer . . .
found in grace’s loving cup!

By His Grace ~

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Sometimes, it’s hard to get up,
to greet a brand new day
sometimes, I think in my bed
I should cover up and stay.

Sometimes, it’s hard to put,
one foot, in front of the other
sometimes, I ask myself . . .
why should I even bother.

Sometimes, it’s hard to dress,
to wash my face and hair
sometimes, the pain I feel
is just too much to bear.

Sometimes, it’s hard to leave,
to close and lock the door
sometimes, I don’t want to go
even to my favorite store.

But, whenever I start to feel,
today ~ I just cannot do . . . .
Jesus whispers in my ear
“My grace will get you through!”

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

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Daily Grace ~

 

He Knows How To Run ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, I need a refill,
my reserve is getting low
I need a Holy Spirit stir
from my head to my toe.

Going to need a boost,
a shot of endurance
I need more strength
and some temperance.

Lord, I need a lift,
a spiritual transformation
a real pick-me-up
an increase of inspiration.

Going to need a daily dose,
of all the Gospel’s truths
if I am to fight off Satan
and all his deadly troops.

Lord, I need a refill,
of Your daily grace . . .
I need some renewing
to stay in the race!

~~~~~~~.

Isaiah 40:31
King James Version 

“But they that wait
upon the Lord shall renew
their strength;

they shall mount up

they shall run,

and not faint.”

Grace Transforming ~

Surrounded By Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ I Bible Verses Photo

God’s grace is transforming,
if you want it to be
it will change your life
till it’s Jesus others see.

It’s living inside of you,
you have the power within
it’s working right now
to triumph over your sin.

You might be poor,
but, it will make you rich
for grace freely given
comes without a hitch.

It has no drawbacks,
you have all that you need
there is no hindrance
when to pride you concede.

It will teach and train you,
how to live out your days
it will lead you down the path
of the true, righteous way.

God’s grace is transforming,
it’s alive and living in you
and if you will let it . . .
it’ll come bounding through!

His Grace Is Sufficient ~

 

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Some people feel guilty,
some still feel the shame
for their past sin
they still take the blame.

They refuse to let go,
of their past indiscretions
so they hang on to
their former transgressions.

But, once you’re repented,
there’s no need to go back
Jesus died for all of your sins
His grace, you’ll never lack.

For, grace covers you now,
it’s covered what you’ve done
it’ll cover you all the way till
you enter into His kingdom.

So, throw away your guilt,
say goodbye to all the blame
Jesus’ gift of sufficient grace
is yours, right now to claim!

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

2 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

A Heart Full of Grace ~

Grace by Nathan Furr free photo #12440

When a heart is full of grace,
it is a heart that is kind
compassion for others
it always tries to find.

It puts on humility,
wears the cloak of patience
it dresses itself with modesty
wears the robe of justice.

It is wrapped in peace,
It’s covered in forgiveness
drapes itself with love
it’s swathed in gentleness.

When a heart is full of grace,
gratitude is its garment
the Word of God . . .
is its wardrobe requirement!

~~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12
King James Version

Put on therefore, as the elect of God,
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness, longsuffering;”

No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
