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!

Romans 5:20
King James Version

“Moreover the law entered,
that the offence might abound.

But where sin abounded,
grace did much more abound:”

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.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory
in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

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!

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

Isaiah 41:10
King James Version

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed;
for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with

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!

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

Psalm 34:18
King James Version

“The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.”

Unrelenting Grace ~

the-grace-jesus-christ_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Unrelenting grace,
never gives up . . .
flows abundantly
from hope’s eternal cup.

Unremitting mercy,
unstoppable compassion
flows with the blood
of Jesus’ undying passion.

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.

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 13:14

” The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ

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
salvation’s door.

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

Sin and temptation,
judgment and wrath
now  joy in tribulation
on the faithful one’s path.

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

Grace Sufficient ~

grace-sufficent-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

My grace is sufficient,
I have all you’ll ever need
when your deficiencies
to Me, you willingly cede.

My strength is in you,
just give me your flaws
I’ll take you by the hand
lead you with My laws.

My power is endless,
I can do so many things
if your imperfections
to Me, you readily bring.

I delight in weakness,
find joy in your fragility
I love when you show Me
your sincere humility.

I’ll make you perfect,
just trust and rest in Me
for sufficient is My grace
I have waiting for thee!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version

On the Wings of Grace ~

BY Grace3used with permission IBible Verses

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!

“By whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand,

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!

may His flawless peace

burn in your life eternally
may you embrace His Spirit
in your life internally.

enlighten you today
may you share His love
as you go along your way!

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.

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

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

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
but God can and will . . .
relieve the throb 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!

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

2 Timothy 1:9

The Good Shepherd ~

The Lord is My Shepherd used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I’ve everything that is good
for He tenderly cares for me
as a Good Shepherd should.

He keeps me from danger,
protects my every step
He won’t let my foot slip
He saves each misstep.

He’s skilful and faithful,
to care for His flock
He keeps me from wandering
watches me like a hawk.

When I call out His name,
He comes running to me
for He recognizes my voice
from temptation I’m free.

He tends to my desires,
knows what I will need
I’ll  not go hungry
for on His goodness I feed.

I shall find satisfaction,
all the days of my life
for  He took upon Himself
the lot of my strife!

Grace Unmerited Favor by Luis Rivera free photo #11776

Let grace carry you,
when you are weary
let it bring you hope
when you are teary.

Let grace carry you,

Let grace carry you,
thru the storms of life

Let grace carry you,
your burdens it’ll bear
let it remove from you

let it comfort you
with everlasting relief.

Let grace carry you,
in the arms of eternal love
let it bring you the peace
from our Father up above!

On His Sparrow’s Wing~

How Great A Love used permission DoorPost Verses on facebook

I heard upon the morning song, the sweetest words fly by “I am always with you, forever by your side.”

As the words soared onward, my heart began to sing for I heard the voice of Jesus on His sparrows wing.

The tender tune picked up, my aching soul within it was as if His tiny sparrow sailed off with my every sin.

As the day moved forward, the sparrows little lilt . . . flew by my heart once more and took with him my guilt!

The Man and His Dog!

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!

How Precious Am I!

How Precious used with permission from Doorpost Verses on Facebook
Numerous are Your thoughts for me,
I cannot count them all
but, I know they are tender
ever constant and practical.

The notion that You think of me,
more than all the grains of sand
is so hard for me to fathom
let alone to understand.

Your attention never fails,
as my counselor, You are wise
Your thoughts for me outnumber
all the stars in the skies.

I am always on Your mind,
You take such delight in me
Your thoughts  I cannot measure
for their deeper than the sea.

Your timing is always perfect,
I’m forever under Your care
You watch out for all my needs
and answer my every prayer.

Your thoughts for me are so many,
I hold them precious and dear
no wonder my thoughts towards You
grow more and more each year!

I Will Sleep in Peace ~

I Will Lie Down used with permission from Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I can’t wait until evening,
till the end of my day
when with my Lord and Savior
I can peacefully lay.

For, as I wait to fall asleep,
I envision His love
falling down upon me
like moonbeams above.

I can’t wait for my eyes,
to shut their lids weary
so all of God’s glory
they can picture clearly.

For, as I begin to doze off,
I visualize His light
glowing inside of me
like the stars at night.

I can’t wait until evening,
as I search for Jesus’ face
when I look out at the moon
I slip to sleep full of grace!

This 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 are 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 worship and adore
it’s a thing of total sacrifice
a gift we can’t ignore.

This grace covers your past,
your future and your today
this grace ~ will make you shout
hallelujah and hooray!

The Gift of Grace ~

Grace  by Radikai Art free photo #8410

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
not earned by any act or deed
but given to every soul for favor
to fill our deepest want and need.

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
not worthy by any way or means
just filthy rags, covered in scarlet sins
till His blood ~ washed us clean.

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
not deserving to be set free at all
His life became sins only ransom
love’s redemption, for man’s fall.

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
not justified to accept or to receive
Jesus came to give the guilty sinner
the gift of mercy, so they’d believe.

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.

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

Ephesians 2:7-9
King James Version

“That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace

Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Glory by Radkal Arts free photo #8415

When I consider.
the universe . . .
it is with You, God
I want to converse.

I climb my mountains.
I walk my stormy sea
but it is with You . . .
that I long to be.

For, You are my maker,
You are my heartbeat
and I long for the day
that we shall meet.

When I look at the sky,
beyond the horizon . . .
I see Your kingdom
and the light of Your Son.

I am drawn,
into eternity . . .
for I know
with You I’ll finally be.

Lord, You are my salvation,
the only hope I cling to
and I cannot wait . . .
till I spend eternity with You.

As I look in the distance,
I see a glimpse of love
that which my heart knows
comes only from above.

Lord, when I’m in heaven
I will fall at Your feet
praising You always . . .
for I will then be complete!
