Because He First Loved Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I lift my eyes heavenward,
till I envision in my mind
the glory that’s awaiting me
the day with my Lord I’ll be

My heart swells up with joy,
a chorus of praise begins
for all my God, has done for me
for all, when with Him I’ll be.

I feel the burning in my soul,
as my trust begins to flare
I know my hope will carry me
till the day with my God I’ll be.

My spirit sings sweet melodies,
eternal peace they usher in
oh, the bliss that’s awaiting me
on the day with my Savior I’ll be.

I lift my eyes heavenward,
till I envision in my mind
the day with my Lord I will be
all because He first loved me!

Unconditional Love

~Unconditional Love~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Once I was lost,
out looking for love
everywhere else
but from above.

I thought I’d find,
something real
but true contentment
I could never feel.

I didn’t believe,
love couldn’t be found
I had plenty to give
but, none was inbound.

Now I have love,
deeper than man can give
for they ~ know not how
to forget and forgive.

Once I was lost,
then I looked to God above
and I found in Jesus . . .
true, unconditional love!

“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me,
saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an

 lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”

The Love of God ~

The Love  of God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

May you know the love of God,
in all of its glory and fullness
may you uncover its very depth
and the meaning of His richness.

May you discover the love of God,
in all of its purity and loveliness
may you perceive its very height
and be filled with His faithfulness.

May you sense the love of God,
in all of its peace and kindness
may you feel its very breadth
and be calmed by His tenderness.

May you discern the love of God,
in all of its grace and gentleness
may you detect its very length
and behold all of His mercifulness.

May you love the Lord, your God,
with all of your heart and soul
may you come to Him right now
and let Him make your life whole!

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

Ephesians 3:17-19
King James Version

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints
what is the breadth, and length, and depth,
and height; And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge, that ye might be
filled with all the fulness of God.”

Endless Love ~

Endless Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s love is endless,
we cannot measure it
in the entire universe
not all of it, would fit.

The expansiveness,
of the world around us
can’t contain all His love
it would ooze and gush.

Even in the vastness,
of the space above
could the totality of it
be filled with His love.

The earth and seas,
and all that is below
could not hold His love
for it would overflow.

God’s love is endless,
the lost cannot fathom it
but for those who know Him
it is a perfect fit!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:18-19
King James Version

“May be able to comprehend with all saints
what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”

Love Letter from God ~

Love Letter from God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Today I received,
a love letter from God
I opened up my Bible
here is what I read . . .

I am your Creator,
before you were born
I molded and formed you
just like the dew in the morn.

I’m the remedy to your needs,
I am your soothing balm
I’m the peace in your storm
I am the voice that is calm.

I’m all the grace you need,
in Me, there is eternal life
I came so that I could bear
the burden of your strife.

I am your staff of comfort,
I will shield and protect you
through life’s complexities
together we’ll journey through.

I am the anchor of your soul,
a safe place to run and hide
I will never forsake you . . .
I am always at your side.

I’m the lamp unto your way,
with my Word I will guide
I am the One who you feel
stirring up deep inside.

I am your Creator,
I knew you from the start
that is why I gave to you
for Me ~ a loving heart!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 16:33

Come, My beloved one,

Come, My beloved one,
come and lean on Me
for there is an empty place
come so I may fill the space.

Come, My beloved one,
come and draw near to me
for there is an untold need
come and let My Spirit lead.

Come, My beloved one,
come and be one with Me
come, My beloved one
for you belong to Me.

The Greatest Love ~

The Greatest Love Sotry ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creation Swap

So great is God’s love,
the whole world it embraces
so He gave the greatest gift
to every nation, to all the races.

God’s one and only Son,
came with the greatest invitation
those who puts their faith in Him
would be saved from damnation.

With the greatest certainty,
He guaranteed no eternal loss
promised salvation would come
from the One upon the cross.

With the greatest of assurance,
God grants us peace eternally
when Jesus, His greatest gift
we invite to live internally!

Roses Aren’t Always Red ~

Roses Aren't Always Red ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Roses aren’t always red,
violets can be white or blue
but what never changes ~ Lord
is the love coming from You.

I know I’m not perfect,
but You love me any way
Your love is like the sunshine
that brightens up my day.

You love me like no other,
what more could I need
for Your love comes with . . .
a satisfaction guaranteed.

Your love is in my heart,
I can feel it in each beat
without it my life . . .
would be incomplete.

Roses sometimes are red,
violets may come blue
but Your love for me ~ Lord
remains constantly true!

Love Came to Conquer ~

Conquerors ~ CHRISTian poetry be deborah ann

Love came to conquer,
Love came to deploy
mercy and grace . . .
so sin it could destroy.

Love came to stop,
the adulterer and murderer
the thug and the thief
the blasphemous, perjurer.

Love came to overcome,
the anxious and worried
the fearful and the afraid
the troubled and wearied.

Love came to defeat,
the back biter and gossiper
the arrogant and the conceited
the prideful, ego worshiper.

Love came to overpower,
the rebellious and greedy
the contentiously, belligerent
the sordid and seedy.

Love came to conquer,
each and every sin
Love came to save
Love came to win!

~~~~~~

Romans 8:37
King James Version

“Nay, in all these things
we are more than conquerors
through him that loved us.”

The Only Love ~

Jesus Died for You CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann


Know Greater Love ~

Know Greater Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

They say love makes,
this world go around
but now a days . . .
it’s harder to be found.

We want to find love,
lasting and real
love that goes deeper
than just how we feel.

We search for it,
in all sorts of places
we look to find it
on stranger’s faces.

Seldom do we see,
the love that we need
to our worldly lusts
we so often heed.

But, if we want to know,
a love that is greater
we needn’t look past
our Lord and Savior.

For, there’s no better love,
on which we can depend
then the one that comes
from our eternal Friend!

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

John 15:13
King James Version

“Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Heart Matters ~

Heart Matters ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo/Creation/Swap

There isn’t a heart too cold,
that God can’t melt
there isn’t one too stony
where He can’t be felt.

There isn’t a heart too cynical,
that God can’t shake
there isn’t one too hardened
that He can’t break.

There isn’t a heart too rigid,
that God can’t move
there isn’t a heart too rough
that He can’t smooth.

There isn’t a heart too lost,
that God can’t find
there isn’t a heart too far off
that He’d leave behind.

There isn’t a heart too broken,
that God can’t love
there isn’t a heart in the world
that He would ever let go of.

~~~~~~~~~

God’s Love in Motion ~

God's Love In Motion ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s love in motion,
goes round and round
reaches out to the lost
and saves the found.

It is perpetual,
it can never be stopped
God’s love in motion
will never be topped.

It is everlasting,
continues into eternity
God’s love in motion
brings infinite serenity.

It is unconditional,
there are no qualifications
God’s love in motion
arrives at its destinations.

God’s love in motion,
is constant and true
there isn’t a heart . . .
He can’t get through!

Who Can Comprehend?

Who Can Comprehend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Who can comprehend,
this love that is world-wide
who can grasp onto
this call to be His bride?

Who can comprehend,
a love that is without end
who can figure out
the true passion of a Friend?

Who can comprehend,
love going into eternity
who can stretch their hearts
into this place of serenity.

Who can comprehend,
love reaching deep within
who can see the real need
for forgiveness of their sin.

Who can comprehend,
the love God has for us
who can fully understand it . . .
those who completely trust!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:18-19
King James Version

“May be able to comprehend with all saints

filled with all the fulness of God.

Only on The Cross ~

Only on the Cross ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Only on the cross,
will you find forgiveness
only on the cross will love
strengthen your weakness.

Only on the cross,
will you find happiness
only on the cross will love
ease your loneliness.

Only on the cross,
will you find inner peace
only on the cross will love
cause faith to be released.

Only on the cross,
will you find eternal grace
only on the cross will love
cause your sins to be erased

Only on the cross,
will you find love that is real
only on the cross . . .
can love restore and heal!

A Love-Hate Problem ~

unworthyloved-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I love the Lord,
but I hate any sin
that keeps me from
getting closer to Him.

I love others,
as God wants me too
it is the sin I hate
the evil that I do.

A love-hate problem,
I simply can’t ignore
for my sins I know
God greatly abhors.

But Jesus died,
so I could live
on the cross of Calvary
He came to forgive.

Without His grace,
I’d stand condemned
before the throne
God, I would offend.

I despise my sin,
I loathe my brokenness
if not for Jesus’ love
there’d be no wholeness!

~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 6:16-19
King James Version

“These six things doth the Lord hate:
yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

A proud look, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed innocent blood,

An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations,
feet that be swift in running to mischief,

A false witness that speaketh lies,
and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

Fruits of Love ~

Rooted by Jeff Boriss free photo#5262

Plant your roots in the Bible,
water them every single day
feed upon the Word of God
grow in the righteous way.

Nurture yourself in the Bible,
let Jesus’ grace take a firm hold
then you’ll produce fruits of love
beautifully, bountifully bold.

Establish yourself in the Bible,
firmly set down your foundation
let the roots of your faith
be grounded in your salvation.

Plant your treasures in heaven,
be rooted in the Kingdom to come
pray for the Holy Spirit’s indwelling
so to root-rot you won’t succumb!

God’s Love Stays True ~

God's Love Stays True ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s love never fails,
it won’t wither or pale
God’s love stays true
makes everything new.

God’s love is firm,
though we may squirm
God’s love is patient
when we’re complacent.

God’s love is kind,
though we’re resigned
God’s love is gentle
when we’re temperamental.

God’s love is just,
though we may not trust
God’s love is pure
when we’re insecure.

God’s love never ceases,
though we fall to pieces
God’s love is hope
when we can’t cope.

God’s love never pales,
though we may fail
God’s love stays true
whilst making us new!

There is a Hollow ~

lovebeyond used with permission IBible Verses

There is a vast hollow,
an empty space I feel
and I know it’s a void
that only God can fill.

So, I turn my face to Him,
I lift up my barren soul
I pray to Him asking
to fill up the gaping hole.

He gives me His peace,
then offers up more grace
now true contentment
fills up the lonely space.

No longer is there a hollow,
I’m focused on God above
the gaping void now overflows
with the fullness of His love!

Just As You Are ~

Because of Your Love by Marian Trinidad free photo #9276

God loves you,
just as you are
every blemish
each little scar.

God loves you,
He sees your fight
He hears your battle
long into the night.

God loves you,
He knows your pain
He sees your struggle
is not fought in vain.

God loves you,
He understands
all of your wounds
are in His hands.

God loves you,
has His eye on you
He’ll not let you fall
if Him you cling too.

God loves you,
just as you are
He’s perfecting you
with each little scar!

Bleeding-Hearts ~

God loves You used with permissin IBible Verses

We search for love,
in all the wrong places
we seek acceptance
in strangers faces.

We go to chat rooms,
join a dating service
hoping our soul mate
comes to the surface.

We go to nightclubs,
we party, we dance
scanning the crowd
for a little romance.

We wish and we hope,
we beg and we pray
our truest of loves
will come our way.

We are often foolish,
unwise and soft-hearted
and our bleeding-hearts
are often discarded.

So, if you are looking,
for someone you can love
just open up your heart
and look up above.

Jesus loves you,
like no one else ever will . . .
the emptiness in your heart
His grace will quench and fill!
