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!

For by grace are ye saved

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!

From The Poem: The Sweet Smell Of Grace

 


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 . . .

~~~~~

and their inheritance

From The Poem: Justified By Grace

 


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

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.

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,
liberating too
grace makes
all things new.

Grace erases,
shames past

hope that lasts.

Grace allows,

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

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

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

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!

The Root of Grace ~

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!

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!”

Going to need a boost,
a shot of endurance
I need more strength

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

Going to need a daily dose,

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!

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;”

Rescued ~

isaiah-41-10-hand-of-god-god-says used with permission Darrell Creswell

He came with a tender heart,
extended a loving hand
from my own misery
He helped me up to stand.

He saw that I was lost,
how my life lacked direction
He knew in the darkness
I couldn’t see the separation.

I was soiled, I was stained,
with the grime of my sin
He knew that I needed
to be cleansed from within.

He shined His light on me,
broke through the hard crust
showed me how much I needed
in Him, to believe and trust.

He was the voice of hope,
His promises I could hear
to His voice I listened
till He took away my fear.

He came with a tender heart,
rescued me with His loving hand
He gave me the gift of grace
now by faith ~ I firmly stand!

Where Grace and Mercy Dwells ~

Where Grace and Mercy Dwells ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

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 reflect on the days and nights,
when I thought I was on my own
but now I can see how Jesus
never once, left me all alone.

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 there I see 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 grace and mercy dwells.

It Takes a Broken Heart ~

the-lord-is-close-to-the-brokenhearted_ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes, it takes a broken heart,
that God has to repair and mend
sometimes, it takes one crushed
by a loved one or a friend.

Sometimes, He needs a heart,
that is full of grief and pain
sometimes, it takes one mournful
filled with regret and shame.

Sometimes, He needs a heart,
suffering one blow after blow
sometimes, it takes one sorrowful
so His mercy He can show.

Sometimes, He needs a heart,
shattered and torn
sometimes, it takes one regretful
full of self-contempt and scorn.

Sometimes, God needs your heart,
broken and beaten down
so He may come into your life
and turn your world around.

Sometimes, it takes a broken heart,
that finally seeks His face
sometimes, it takes a broken spirit
to receive the fullness of His grace!

Unrelenting grace,
never gives up . . .

Unremitting mercy,
unstoppable compassion
flows with the blood

Unavoidable forgiveness,
unchangeable love
flows down like manna
from the heaven above.

Unrelenting grace,
unyielding persistence
over came the world
to win man’s resistance.

Justified by Grace ~

blood-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Justified by grace,
through faith alone
mercy came down
from heaven’s throne.

No longer a stranger,
separated no more
once Jesus opened
to all salvation’s door.

Instead of dread,
now there is peace
transforming love
never to cease.

Sin and temptation,
judgment and wrath
now hope and joy
on the faithful path.

Justified by grace,
through faith alone
Jesus the only reason . . .
ours sins are atoned!

On the wings of God’s grace,
I can soar above all things
rise higher than the troubles
this life so often brings.

I can face my biggest foe,
confront my largest fear
for on the wings of grace
my Lord is always near.

I can scale every mountain,
swoop over the roughest sea
there isn’t any situation
where grace will not carry me.

I can climb each obstacle,
Satan places in front of me
for on the wings of grace
from His snares, I am free.

I can fly across the desert,
till I find a heavenly oasis
for I am flying on the wings
of my Lord’s eternal graces!

A Chip On the Shoulder ~

God Looks At the Heart

Some people have a chip,
it’s not just on their shoulder
it’s embedded so deep within
you can actually see it smolder.

They usually are burning mad,
seething with smoke and steam
and their poisonous fumes
are deadly when they scream.

They carry around a grudge,
about something from their past
like a time bomb about to go off
you can sense their deadly blast.

They rant and they rave,
about how everything’s unfair
and they’ll blame anyone
for the misery of their despair.

Some people have a chip,
their venom they like to spew
but, God doesn’t want it to become
something embedded in you!

Healing Waters ~

Peace that Surpasses used with permission IBible Verses on Facebook

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of this life
leaves us begging for relief.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove its own heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

We thirst for healing waters,
for a peaceful resting place
where we can forget the pain
that’s too unbearable to face.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
only God can relieve . . .
the throbbing in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the anguished true relief!

Grace Saw Beyond ~

God has Bee Gracious to Me used with permission from Darrell Creswell

Grace saw beyond,
the worthless and unworthy
it looked past the sin
with its unmerited mercy.

Grace saw beyond,
the bondage of the soul
it broke loose the yoke
to heal and make whole.

Grace saw beyond,
the outward behavior
it  looked past the wickedness
with its unwarranted favor.

Grace saw beyond,
the look of the proud
it recognized the helpless
standing out in a crowd.

Grace saw beyond,
the stony-human heart
it looked past the coldness
so love it could impart.

Grace saw beyond,
corruption, lust and greed
it came in the name of Jesus
so from works we’d be freed!

Let us love one another used with permission from DoorPost Verses on Facebook

Yesterday ~ I met a man and his dog,
out on the street . . .
he was worn and ragged
said his dog needed a treat.

He scared and alarmed me,
when I said I had nothing to give
he cussed and swore at me
for the life, he had to live.

I quickly walked to my car,
he followed closely after me
screaming and yelling . . .
“Are your eyes to blind to see?”

I started to drive away,
ready to call the police . . .
when a still voice spoke to me
and gave me much peace.

I didn’t have much money,
but I gave it all to the man
and said I was sorry . . .
his troubles I didn’t understand.

I told him about God,
about new life in His Son
where mercy and grace
would undo the sins he’d done.

I don’t know if he heard,
don’t know if he cares
but the man and his dog,
will always be in my prayers!

Oh, to know the gift of grace,

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
where evil no longer rules or reigns
to know His scarred and healing hands
have released sins ~ crippling chains.

I will fall at Your feet
praising You always . . .
for I will then be complete!
