This Amazing Grace ~

It’s a thing of beauty,
a thing of hope and love
it’s a thing of wonder
this grace from God above.

It’s a thing of strength,
when we’re feeling faint
it’s a thing of confidence
it’s our spiritual restraint.

It’s a thing we should seek,
something we must grow
it’s a thing for us to share
with every one we know.

It’s a thing of praise,
a thing to adore
it’s an amazing thing
a gift we can’t ignore.

This grace covers our past,
our today, our future
this grace we all need . . .
to cultivate and nurture!

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ. To him be
glory both now and
for ever. Amen.

“And God is able to make
all grace abound toward you;
that ye, always having all
sufficiency in all things,
may abound to every
good work:”

Where Faith and Love Dwells ~

Sometimes I wander through,
 the valleys of my soul . . .
lingering near the streams of life
when I felt well and whole.

I ponder the times Jesus filled in,
the empty and void space
where His love for me flowed
like a river full of endless grace.

As I stroll along the rugged clefts,
I can see the hard times too
as I roam all around them
His mercy for me shines through.

I come across the mountains,
that I had to hike up to . . .
some of them I never thought
the hard climb I could ever do.

But I remember seeing Jesus,
standing upon the crest
calling down to me
“Come, I’ll give you rest.”

Sometimes I like to wander,
through life’s hills and dells
and go deep into my soul . . .
where faith and love dwells!

Ephesians 3:17

That Christ may dwell
in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted

Where Grace Abounds ~

Where grace abounds,
salvation springs . . .
where salvation prevails
more grace it brings.

Where grace expands,
hope flourishes
where hope teems
more grace nourishes.

Where grace thrives,
righteousness expands
where virtue grows
more grace demands.

Where grace permeates.
trust infiltrates
where trust exists
more grace penetrates.

Where grace abounds,
more grace is given
where Jesus is found . . .
more grace is taken.

Grace Training~

We all need,
grace training
so we can be
more forgiving.

Then like Jesus,
we’ll transform
as acts of love
we perform.

We all need,
to grow in grace
so compassion
we can embrace.

Then like Jesus,
we’ll reflect
as His goodness
we project.

We all need,
to be more kind
we all need . . .
extra grace to find!

A Sip From God’s Mercy Cup ~

When your heart screams,
I can’t take anymore . . .
when it can no longer
continue in torment’s war.

That is when it needs,
God protective shield
so to His perfect peace
it can begin to yield.

When you heart hollers,
stop terrorizing me . . .
when it shouts out loud
why won’t you let me be.

That’s when it needs,
Jesus to console it
so He can bring His calm
into your own spirit.

When your heart comes,
to a place of giving up . . .
stop and take a long sip
from God’s mercy cup!

~~~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

Faith Without Grace ~

Grace and faith,
a winning combination
for it is the key . . .
to eternal salvation.

You can’t have one,
with out the other
for faith without grace
your sins won’t cover.

Grace and faith,
are a reckoning source
when added together
they’re a powerful force.

For grace is the channel,
faith is the condition
without both of them
there is no redemption.

Grace and faith,
is the lone connection
and it comes from only . . .
one divine direction!

Grace Is An Infusion ~

Grace is an infusion,
of God’s love and mercy
it is given freely . . .
to all who are thirsty.

It cannot be bought,
borrowed or purchased
only by Jesus . . .
to you is it furnished.

Grace is an transfusion,
of Christ’s saving blood
it cleanses our souls
as it flows and floods.

It is a connection,
to everything just
it quickens the heart
in it’s power to trust.

Grace is a transfusion,
of hope, love and peace
grace is an infusion . . .
only Jesus can release!

Abba Our Father ~

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I could be . . .

An heir to salvation,
a daughter of light
a child that brings
to Him great delight.

No longer an orphan,
no longer a stray
I’ve inherited a room
in His mansion I’ll stay.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I can be free . . .

Free from the guilt,
of my wandering ways
free from the darkness
that once filled my days.

The adoption became final,
that day on the Cross
when Jesus died for me
and all those who are lost.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I might see . . .

See His glory,
in the midst of my pain
see His grace fall
like sweet drops of rain.

The inheritance is mine,
I’m claiming my right
and now I have privilege
to His power and might.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family,
I willingly flee . . .

Grace Is A Mender ~

Grace is a mender,
of flaws running deep
it is a collector
of the tears we weep.

Grace is a healer,
of vessel’s broken
it is a free gift
God set into motion.

Grace is a liberator,
of evil and oppression
it is a deliver
of earthly transgression.

Grace is a giver,
of eternal redemption
it is a perfecter
of faith and salvation.

Grace is God’s mercy
pity and favor . . .
grace is God’s free gift
of Jesus our Savior!

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved

The Grace of Jesus ~

The grace of Jesus,
was given freely . . .
to all of mankind
proportionally.

God measured out,
faith to everyone
so we all could be
saved by His Son.

The grace of Jesus,
will keep us humble
lest over our egos
we’ll surely stumble.

God wants us to be,
sober and sincere
for He sees right through
our narcissistic veneer.

The grace of Jesus,
can’t be taken for granted
lest we may become . . .
with ourselves enchanted!

~~~~~

Romans 12:3

For I say, through the grace
given unto me, to every man
that is among you, not to think
of himself more highly than
he ought to think; but to think
soberly, according as God hath
dealt to every man the
measure of faith.

My Cup Is Full ~

I’ve got a cup,
it’s fills with more grace
each time I seek
God’s almighty face.

He pours into it,
mercy anew
upon morning’s
dewy debut.

I’ve got a cup,
it overflows
the more God
I get to know.

He dispenses into it,
faith, joy and peace
everlasting assurance
that’ll never cease.

I’ve got a cup,
full of hope’s promise
it warms my soul . . .
with eternal solace!

Lamentations 3:22-23

Diamonds of His Grace ~

Do your tears downpour,
when you confess your sin
do they fall like raindrops
as they drip off your chin?

Is your heart remorseful,
of your every evil deed
will you give up your pride
and let the Holy Spirit lead?

Do your tears well up inside,
and come from deep within
do they drip like dewdrops
when you cry out to Him?

Will you come to the Light,
to have your heart reformed
will you call upon His name
so your life can be transformed?

Have you looked into God’s eyes,
and wept from your disgrace
do you know your tears to Him . . .
are the diamonds of His grace?

~~~~~~~

Psalm 30:5

For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour is life: weeping may
endure for a night, but joy cometh
in the morning.

Psalm 51:17

The sacrifices of God are
a broken spirit: a broken
and a contrite heart,
O God, thou wilt not despise.

His Radiant Grace ~

When Jesus you invite,
into your life . . .
you’ll no longer be filled
with worldly strife.

For His love will fill,
the cold, stony place
that once was your heart
with His radiant grace.

When you decide,
Jesus to follow . . .
you’ll no longer feel
empty and hollow.

For His love will flow,
into the recesses
of a heart once filled
with worldly excesses.

When you accept Jesus,
as the Life of your soul
satan will no longer . . .
over you have control!

Grace Is Freeing ~

Grace is freeing,
liberating too
grace makes
all things new.

Grace erases,
shames past
graces brings
hope that lasts.

Grace allows,
a clean slate
grace gives
a new birth date.

Graces delivers,
a fresh start
grace softens
a stony heart.

Grace is freeing,
absolving too
grace puts faith
right into you!

Make Grace Greater ~

Make grace greater,
than your pride
let it become . . .
your earthly guide.

Make humility bigger,
than your ego
let it become . . .
your heart’s credo.

Make courtesy stronger,
than your vanity
let it become . . .
your mind’s canopy.

Make meekness bolder,
than your conceit
let it become . . .
your soul’s heartbeat.

Make grace greater,
let it grow in your heart
then bitterness . . .
won’t even root or start!

Looking diligently lest any man
fail of the grace of God;
lest any root of bitterness
springing up trouble you,
and thereby many be defiled;

and Saviour Jesus Christ.

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!

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 grace 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

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 healing 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,
Father, we can to do . . .
and by grace through faith
accept the gift 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!

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 Christ, Jesus our 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!

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God

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!
