The City of No Mores ~

In the City of No Mores,
is where I long to be . . .
oh, how I can hardly wait
until Jesus returns for me.

On the street of No More Tears.
we’ll never again weep or cry
for there will only be bliss
as every eye will be dry.

On the road of No More Pain,
we’ll be complete and whole
for we’ll have a new body
and a new glorified soul.

Down the path of No More Sin,
we will leap, jump and run
for our battle against satan
will be finally won.

On the way of No More Death,
there’ll be a jubilant parade
for from the devil evil-doings
we’ll never again be afraid.

In the City of No Mores,
is where we’ll spend eternity
and dwell in the mansion . . .
of No More Agony!

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes;

and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow,
nor crying,

neither shall there be
any more pain:

for the former things
are passed away.”

I Long To Dwell ~

I long to dwell,
in eternal peace . . .
where fear and death
will forever cease.

Where things are seen,
through tearless eyes
where joyous shouts
are the only cries.

I long to dwell,
on the other side
where with God
believer’s reside.

Where sorrow stops,
as mourning ends
to spend eternity
with my forever Friend.

I long to dwell,
far from this place
where tears no longer
stream down our face!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall
be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there
be any more pain: for the former
things are passed away.

Laying My Treasures ~

My heart doesn’t lay,
it’s treasures on earth
for it knows one day
they’ll hold no worth.

Instead my heart places,
in God its daily trust
for I know His love for me
will never corrode or rust.

My heart doesn’t invest,
into worldly assets
for they are void of peace
riddled down with regrets.

Instead my heart’s devoted,
to the Life, Truth and Way
for I know my faith in Jesus
will not corrupt or decay.

My heart up in heaven,
lays all it holds dear . . .
for to put it here on earth
makes me shutter with fear!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

When We Get To Heaven ~

When we get to heaven,
there will be only rest
no longer will we need
to go through trials and tests.

For we will be refined,
from silver into gold
God’s magnificent glory
we will forever behold.

When we get to heaven,
there’ll be no more laboring
from all of our weariness
we’ll no longer be suffering.

For we will be at peace,
in the midst of God’s light
as we are flooded in
the beauty of His sight.

When we get to heaven,
there will be only bliss
and the life we have now
we will never once miss!

There remaineth therefore
a rest

Walking In That Valley ~

When I walk in that valley,
I’m not walking it alone
for Jesus will be with me
before He takes me home.

There will nothing to doubt,
not a shedding of a tear
for Jesus will be with me
to calm my every fear.

When into that valley,
I have to travel through
the only thing I’m keeping
will be heaven in my view.

No evil will be lurking,
in the shadows for me
for Jesus like a Shepherd
in front of me, will be.

When I go to that valley,
I’ll not walk it alone
for Jesus will see me
to my eternal home!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

The Face of God ~

The face of God,
I cannot see . . .
but it doesn’t deter
or discourage me.

For I still seek,
God and His face
each time I ask Him
for more of His grace.

The face of God,
is a mystery
but I can still feel
its trajectory.

He tracks His eyes,
to look after me
He steers His ears
to my every plea.

The face of God,
I can’t begin to picture
but, I know I’ll see it
in the near future!

Oh, to know all things,
for good will work out
is to know your future
holds no fear or doubt.

To discover the Way,

brings no eternal strife.

Oh, to know your destiny,
your future welfare
is to come to know Jesus . . .
will too be with you there!

Heavenly Minded ~

When you are,
heavenly minded
in this world
you won’t be blinded.

For when you know,
your real citizenship
into satan traps
you will not fall or slip.

When you live,
a life worthy of
the grace of Jesus
and His love.

You will be,
a light that reflects
His life and power
and its effects.

When you are,
heavenly focused
how you act
will be noticed!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 1:27

together for the faith of the gospel;

Our Future Inheritance ~

There’s an inheritance,
for those who are meek
there’s a promise of peace
to those who God seek.

There’s a lasting promise,
of a future blessing
for those who keep on . . .
into Jesus pressing.

There’s a land of hope,
promised upon adoption
where delightfulness flows
without any disruption.

There’s an abundance,
of calm and tranquility
for those whose attitude
is one of humility.

There’s an inheritance,
of a future destination
a promise of peace . . .
in all of its perfection!

I Have A Vision ~

 

I have a vision,
of better days . . .
it’s full of glory
worship and praise.

I can see faces,
filled not with fear
eyes that no longer
hold a single tear.

I can see hearts,
flowing with grace
I can see saints
who braved the race.

I can see souls,
no longer in pain
I can see where death
has given up its reign.

I have a vision,
where all things are new
whenever heaven . . .
comes into my view!

Until My Last Breath ~

I trust the Lord,

I know His light
will lead my way.

I trust the Lord,
with all my soul
for, I know it’s His
to keep and control.

I trust the Lord,
my life to Him I give
for, I know He knows
just how long I’ll live.

I’ll trust the Lord,
until my last breath
for I know in Him . . .
there is no death!

with God’s eternal peace.

Cries will be heard no more,
only singing and praise
to our heavenly Father
and the Son that He raised.

Sorrow and heartache,
will no more be heard of
for there up in heaven
there’ll only be God’s love.

I know up in heaven,
former things will have passed
and the best part about it . . . .
is being with Jesus at last!

The Daughter of A King ~

I am a daughter of a King,
royalty flows through my veins
I am the child of a Prince
in my heart He lives and reigns.

I am an heir to a mansion,
with walls of pure gold
where precious gem stones
shine brilliant and bold.

I am a daughter of a King,
I have a royal destiny
my citizenship is in heaven
tis where I’ll spend eternity.

I have an eternal treasure,
that is waiting just for me
the crown of life I will wear
when with my Lord I’ll be.

I am a daughter of a King,
waiting for my inheritance
I am the child of a Prince
I can say with all assuredness!

endureth temptation:

One Day In Heaven ~

One Day In Heaven ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

One day in heaven,
we will have perfect rest
when with eternal life
we are finally blessed.

We’ll have rest from heartache,
from our every sorrow
rest from our labor
the worries of tomorrow.

We’ll have rest from pain,
every disease and illness
rest from death and dying
our own spiritual sickness.

We’ll have rest from suffering,
from all that causes stress
rest from our despair
our cares that hard press.

One day in heaven,
with peace we’ll be blessed
when with Jesus . . .
we eternally come to rest!

~~~~~~~~~~

In The Lord’s House ~

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to forever dwell
there is no way . . .
I’m willing to go to hell.

For, my sins I’ve confess,
repented and turned from
by grace through faith is how
I’ll enter His kingdom.

In Your house Lord,
is where I want to be
so, for the rest of my days
I’ll faithfully follow Thee.

For, the world is full darkness,
but, You have brought me Light
Your mercy and goodness
are now always in my sight.

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to live forever
oh, how I cannot wait . . .
for us to be together!

Storing Your Treasures ~

If you store your treasures,
in heaven up above . . .
you will become wealthy
in peace, joy and love.

If you are poor,
in a world full of richness
you will be loaded
in hope and forgiveness.

If you are pure,
in thought and in deed
your spiritual assets
will exceed all you need.

If you are merciful,
around the smugly proud
your heart with God’s grace
you will be endowed.

If your treasures,
aren’t worldly plush
the ones in heaven
will be forever flush!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Heaven, I’m In Heaven ~

When in the middle of the night
when my worries invade me
I close my eyes and think . . ..
how heaven is going to be.

I can see so much beauty,
a light that is so bright
I couldn’t tell you whether
it was morning, noon or night.

I see no hearts in mourning,
not a single tear is falling
there’s not one soul in pain
nor do I hear any crying.

I see the dwelling place of God,
I hear praises to His name
I see all the things made new
and how nothing is the same.

I see walls of precious gems,
inside a paradise like mansion
I see it has so many rooms
with extra space for expansion.

When in the middle of the day,
when my troubles surround me
I close my eyes and think  . . .
how blissful heaven will be!

A New Heaven and Earth ~

a-new-heaven-and-earth-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A new heaven,
a new universe
where in God’s peace
all will be immersed.

New stars there’ll be,
new galaxies too
all of God’s glory
will shine through

A new earth,
pristine and fresh
no scars on it
from acts of the flesh.

A new city,
with streets of gold
gates of pearls
opening to His fold.

A new relationship,
between God and man
for all who’ve trusted
in salvation’s plan.

A new condition,
broken hearts no more
no sorrow, no death
only bliss galore.

A new Heaven,
a new earth too . . .
oh, won’t that be
a glorious view!

Heaven Is Surreal ~

heaven-is-surreal-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Heaven is going to be,
awesome and surreal
for it will be a place
peacefully ideal.

It will be in Heaven,
from burdens we’ll be free
it’ll be our true happy place
full of laughter and glee.

Heaven will be a place,
where all will be healed
it is where God’s glory
will be fully revealed.

It will be in Heaven,
from our labors we’ll rest
it’ll be a place of joy
for those once oppressed.

Heaven is going to be,
filled with happiness
life will be never-ending
in the place of gladness!

~~~~~~~

My True Hereafter ~

my-hereafter-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I am a follower of God,
I go where He leads
because I trust Him
for all of my needs.

I’ve been through the valleys,
He has taken me there
so I could learn to rest
in His loving care.

I’ve climbed the mountains,
reached the highest peak
He gave me His strength
because He knew I was weak.

I’ve weathered the storms,
in peace I was kept
He calmed my fears
through the tears I wept.

Like a child, I’m a follower,
to God’s ways I go after
for I believe His Kingdom . . .
is my true hereafter!

My One and Only Selfie ~

My One and Only Selfie ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The only selfie,
I am going to take
is when I go through
the straight gate.

I can’t wait to see,
how I will look
when I see my name
written in the book.

I know I’ll be beaming,
from the light of the Son
as the picture will show
the good race I’ve won.

It will be a photo,
of glory and rewards
one that I’m looking
ever anxiously towards.

The only selfie,
I will ever take . . .
is standing with Jesus
at the straight gate!

~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

The Promise ~

Heaven-is-our-home ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann

Further than the stars,
that my eyes can see
is the promise of rest
God has awaiting me.

Higher than the moon,
hanging in the sky
is the promise of peace
coming from up high.

Beyond the sun’s ray,
beaming from above
is the promise of bliss
bathed in eternal love.

Wider than the ocean,
deeper than the blue sea
is the promise of calm
waiting just for me.

Beyond what I envision,
further than all I can see
I know heaven is waiting
one day to welcome me!

Resting In Jesus ~

Rest In the Lord ~CHRISTiean poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Verses

Lord, today I am relaxing,
soaking in all Your love
I am basking in the idea. . .
of being with You above.

I’m relishing the fact,
I’ll not have one single care
where life and its stresses
on me, will no longer wear.

Lord, today I’m sitting back,
releasing all my tension
I’m focusing in on You . . .
with my undying attention.

I’m unwinding in the calm,
letting life’s pressures ease
the thought of eternal rest
cools me like a summer breeze.

Lord, today I am relaxing,
with You, on heaven’s shore
I am basking in the idea . . .
of blissful peace, forever more!

He's Coming for Me ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My Saviors coming,
He is coming for me
on clouds we will meet
then in heaven I’ll be.

Oh, how I anticipate,
the day of His return
the hour He comes . . .
isn’t for me a concern.

My heart is prepared,
my soul is ready
just the very thought
makes me feel heady.

I get all excited,
just to even think
His coming again
may be on the brink.

My Savior’s coming,
He is coming for me
with Him in heaven
I will forever be!

After the Test ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo  Doorpost Verses

After this test,
there’ll be peace and rest
after the race . . .
there’ll be eternal grace.

When it is all done,
we’ll be with the Son
when it is completed
sin will be defeated.

When it is finished,
crowns will be polished
when it is concluded
death won’t be included.

When it is established,
Satan will be vanished
when it is all fulfilled
Heaven will be revealed.

After this life,
there’ll be no more strife
after the race . . .
eternal peace we’ll embrace!

The Road to Heaven ~

The Way to Heaven ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann~ Phot by Chris Kennedy Creation Swap

The road to heaven,
isn’t on a street of clover
it’s full of dips and ditches
huge bumps to get over.

It’s chuck-full of potholes,
to maneuver through
gaps and depressions
with lots of pitfalls too.

The road to heaven,
isn’t on a street called easy
it’s full of twists and turns
with curves that are sneaky.

It’s full of detours,
that will slow us down
roadblocks and delays
we have to get around.

The road to heaven,
is on a one way street
there can be no u-turns
if Jesus, you want to meet!

Be Not Anxious ~

be-not-anxious CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be not anxious,
trouble not your heart
I am still with you . . .
though, I had to depart.

I am with My Father,
one day, you’ll be with Us
so there’s no need to worry
just continue to always trust.

I would never leave you,
my Spirit is always there
so you can cast upon Me
your every fearful care.

My Father is waiting,
for those who come to Me
who let My grace set them
from their bondage free.

I am preparing a place,
where joy will never cease
I am getting it ready
with endless eternal peace.

Be not anxious,
trouble not your heart
soon we will be together
never again ~ shall I part!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 14:1-3

“Let not your heart be troubled:
ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many mansions:

if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.

And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again, and receive you unto myself;
that where I am, there ye may be also.”

There’s Nothing as Beautiful as Jesus ~

Beautiful King by Jeff Brown free photo # 8159
There is nothing as beautiful,
as Jesus’ love for me . . .
there is nothing more splendid
in this world, for me to see.

There is nothing as wonderful,
as when Jesus, died for me . . .
there is nothing more amazing
on this earth, for my eyes to see.

There is nothing as spectacular,
as when Jesus, returns for me . . .
there is nothing more dazzling
then that twinkling, I will see.

There is nothing as brilliant,
as the glory, waiting for me . . .
there is nothing more perfect
then when heaven, I finally see.

There is nothing as beautiful,
as Jesus’ love for me . . . .
there is nothing more glorious
as when like Jesus ~ I will be!

1 Corinthians 15:51-52

“Behold, I shew you a mystery;

and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.

Just A Glimpse ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~photo from 5power.org

Lord, give me just a glimpse,
of how heaven’s going to be
let me peek into the room
You have reserved for me.

Let me see the streets,
paved with forever peace
let me gaze upon the path
where grief will finally cease.

Lord, give me just a glimpse,
into the land of no more fear
let me glance into the Light
that’ll dry each and every tear.

Let me see the pathway,
where You’ll walk with me
let me have a quick look
where sorrow I’ll not see.

Lord, give me just a glimpse,
part the clouds so I can see
my family and my friends
who are waiting there for me.

Let me see Your mansion,
the glory of Your throne
Lord, give me just a glimpse
into ~ my eternal home!

What Is A Teardrop?

he-will-wipe-every-tear-from-their-eyes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~

What is a teardrop,
what causes it to fall
why do they even form
when we cry or bawl?

What are they made of,
what causes them to drip
why are they salty
when they fall on our lip?

What makes them go splat,
what causes them to stain
why do they soak in
when they fall like rain.

What turns on each drop,
what causes them to spout
why do they gush
when will they run out?

What makes us weep,
what causes us to cry
when will Jesus come . . .
so God ~ can wipe them dry?

For Evermore ~

Heaven 2 by Jon Kenney free photo #5361

When my worries are final over,
and I stand in peace galore
all my fears and trepidation
will not trouble me ~ for evermore.

When my soul is full of His light,
and I stand on freedom’s moor
all my struggles and trepidation
will not beset me ~ for evermore

When my heart stops to beat,
and I stand at mercy’s door
all my pain and all that hurt me
will not afflict me ~ for evermore.

When my days on earth are done,
and I stand under grace’s arbor
all my sins and transgressions
will not shame me ~ for evermore

When my last breath is taken,
and I stand on heaven’s shore
all my tears and all my sorrows
will not grieve me ~ for evermore!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4
King James Version

“And God shall wipe away
all tears from their
eyes;
and there shall be no more death,

be any more pain:

passed away.”

Our Worldly Home ~

Going Home by Doug Shelton free photo from CreationSwap

In this, our worldly home,
there is misery and pain
we toil and we labor . . .
but, it’s all done in vain.

We fight off the weariness,
from being disillusioned
we try not to faint under
the constant confusion.

All of our grueling work,
never seems to pay off
at times at our own selves
we can’t help but to scoff.

We still have hunger pangs,
our thirst is never satisfied
all our disappointments
are eternally magnified.

We feel the throb of sorrow,
we know the sting of grief
from sickness and death
we know there’s no relief.

In this, our worldly home,
the curse of sin always reigns
but, in our heavenly home . . .
nothing will cause us any pain!

King James Version

“And there shall be no more curse:”

Through the Lens of Faith ~

Through the Lens of Fatih ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Through the lens of faith,
I have a perfect view . . .
for when I look through it
all things become new.

I can see my heavenly Father,
sitting on His throne
promising to me
one day He’ll bring me home.

I can look into the future,
see Jesus coming again
I can see the hope He’ll bring
to a universe full of pain.

I can look past right now,
and see everlasting peace
I can see the joys of heaven
that will never end or cease.

Through the lens of faith,
I have a perfect view . . .
and I pray that it includes
every one of you!

~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4
King James Version

“And God shall wipe away

are passed away.”

Heaven Bound ~

Heaven Bound ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Got me a new birth certificate,
on the day, I was born again
I was so excited to have Jesus
come into my life and reign.

I received a brand new heart,
on the day, I opened the door
inviting Jesus to come right in
not knowing what was in store.

He took a close look around,
saw what I could never see
He told me was going to form
His image right into me.

I had to give up the old life,
for the one He was to mold
He told me when He was done
I would be, as good as gold.

It took Him quite a while,
to turn my life around . . .
but now my birth certificate
says ~ I’m heaven bound!

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

John 3:5-7
King James Version

“Jesus answered,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee,

Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into
the kingdom of God.

That which is born
of the flesh is flesh;

and that which is born of
the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee,
Ye must be born again.”

Just Passing Through ~

Heaven by  Jon Kenney free photo #5361

I am but a stranger,
to the world, I am freak
they treat me unjustly
call me lame and weak.

They think I am weird,
they laugh at me and say
“She thinks that to God
there is only one way.”

They tell me that Jesus,
was just a carpenter
a nice guy who once lived
to them, He’s a foreigner.

But Jesus is my Lord,
to God He is the only way
though they laugh and scoff
whenever, this I say.

They believe many roads,
will lead them to heaven
and so to God’s Word
their ears are deafened.

I am but a stranger,
an outsider passing through
a homeless refugee . . .
keeping Jesus in my view!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:13
King James Version

“These all died in faith,
not having received the promises,

but having seen them afar off,
and were persuaded of them,
and embraced them,
and confessed that they were strangers
and pilgrims on the earth.

There is A God in Heaven ~

There is a God in Heaven CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is a God in heaven,
He’s looking down on us
He sees the ones who doubt
notices the ones who trust.

In times of distress He sees,
man’s need for Him to impart
His help and assistance
so their red sea, He can part.

In times of persecution,
while under intense sternness
those who call upon His name
will escape, their fiery furnace.

In times of opposition,
when sentenced to a living hell
His love sets the captive free
from judgment’s prison cell.

There is a God in Heaven,
He’s ready to save us
help us through our troubles
if in Him ~ we will trust!

Hearses Don’t Pull Trailers ~

Hearses Don't Pull Trailers ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Hearses don’t pull trailers,
loaded with earthly treasures
they don’t tow your worth
or your worldly measures.

They don’t carry the living,
with their prized possessions
they only bring along coffins
to the grave side processions.

You can’t take it with you,
all you’ve acquire will turn to rust
what you adore and cherish
will be left behind in the dust.

You can’t haul away your stuff,
there’s no place in heaven for it
one day all you own and love
to the world you’ll have to forfeit.

There is no trailer hitch,
attached to that black hearse
but, you can lay up your treasures
if you read and apply God’s verse.

So, don’t cling onto the things,
that you have saved up and stored
let go of them and turn to God . . .
and your soul He will reward!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20-21
King James Version

“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

This Hope ~

Thy Kingdom COme used with perrmission IBible Verses

There’s a hope that is perfect,
it doesn’t rust or fade
it never spoils, won’t perish
it is not man-made.

This hope is based on fact,
it’s not just wishful thinking
this hope is the Gospel truth
and will have you rethinking.

This hope holds the promise,
of an expectation yet to come
in a house with many rooms
in our Father’s kingdom.

This hope isn’t a work of fiction,
it comes with an eternal plan
Jesus has prepared a place
for every child, woman and man.

This hope is in our Savior,
it is given to all who believe
and it is yours to behold
if  Jesus ~ you’ll receive!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:4-5
King James Version

“To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,
reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by
the power of God through faith unto
salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

The Land of Light and Life ~

The Land of Light and Life ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m going to the land of light,
where darkness will not be
I’m going to walk with the living
and God’s full glory I will see.

I’m going to the land of life,
no more death will I know
I’m going to walk the streets
where all the saved souls go.

I’m going to the land of peace,
of life blissfully ever-after
I’m going to walk with the Lord
forever, there on after.

I’m going to the land of love,
where there’ll be no more hate
I’m going to walk right through
the straight and narrow gate.

I’m going to the land of joy,
where there’ll be no more fears
I’m going to walk the halls
in the mansion of no more tears!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:13
King James Version

“For thou hast delivered
my soul from death:

wilt not thou deliver
my feet from falling,

that I may walk before God
in the light of the living?”

Heaven’s Sweepstakes ~

Set your Mind on Heaven used with permission Doorpost Verses on facebook

Running out of zip,
got no get up and go
feeling long toothed
more than a bit low?

Got you a lemon,
don’t like lemonade
that light in the tunnel
beginning to fade?

Hanging on by a thread,
starting to unravel
what once brought pleasure
on your nerves now gravel?

The pie in the sky,
has come crashing down
all of your hope and dreams
have run aground?

There’s no need to panic,
to worry yourself sick
there’s coming a new garden
where the thorns don’t prick.

So pull up your sleeves,
and dig yourself right in
the Bible holds the ticket
and heaven sweepstakes you’ll win!

Beyond ~

Beyond ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Beyond the pain we have suffered,
past the grief that we have felt
farther than the eye can see
the land of Rest will forever be.

Beyond the troubles we have faced,
past the worries we have had
farther than the eye can see
the land of Hope will forever be.

Beyond the sadness we have felt,
past the despair we have known
farther than the eye can see
the land of Joy will forever be.

Beyond the burdens we have carried,
past the trials we have met
farther than the eye can see
the land of Love will forever be.

Beyond this very moment,
past this one single day . . .
farther than the eye can see
the land of Peace will forever be.

Rusty And Corrupt ~

Do Not Store used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I am saving for the future,
got my treasures stored
I am investing in the day
when I will meet my Lord.

Though I may not be rich,
I give to God what I can
and I am always willing
to lend a helping hand.

I don’t own a lot of things,
go ahead and call me nuts . . .
but denying worldly pleasures
takes an awful lot of guts.

I’m keeping my life simple,
so little days to spend here
I’m just biding my time
till His trumpet call I hear.

Rusty and corrupt,
material things just decay
but when God you trust . . .
you’ll see resurrection day!

~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-20

“Lay not up
for yourselves treasures
upon earth,

where moth and
rust doth corrupt,

and where thieves
break through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,

where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,

and where thieves do
not break through nor steal:”

If Today I Met Jesus ~

If Today I Met Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If today I were to meet Jesus,
and my life here came to an end
I would be so excited
to finally meet my eternal Friend.

I would run up to Him,
and look into His face
I would tell Him I’m so thankful
for His endless supply of grace.

I would drop down to my knees,
and worship my everlasting King
I would shout hallelujah . . .
and my praises I would sing.

I would leap and jump with joy,
as soon as my feet hit the floor
I would be forever grateful
He opened to me heaven’s door.

If today I were to meet Jesus,
and I were to see my eternal Friend
I know that I would be in paradise
and my bliss would never end.

~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
King James Version

“For the Lord himself shall descend from
heaven with a shout, with the voice of the
archangel, and with the trump of God: and
the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive and remain shall be
caught up together with them in the clouds, to
meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever
be with the Lord.”

Ticket To Heaven ~

Ticket to Heaven ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m a citizen of heaven,
got my passport in my hand
one day I’m going to go
to the promised land.

My name’s in the book of life,
soon I’ll be heaven bound
I can hardly wait . . .
till my feet hit the ground.

Jesus has my room ready,
He’ll be there at the door
inside  there’s gonna be
my treasures He has stored.

My ticket is in my pocket,
it says that I’ll be leaving
and soon to the Lord
in heaven, I’ll be cleaving.

I got me a reservation,
in His mansion, I will stay
and nothing gonna keep me . . .
from that promised day!

~~~~~~~

John 14:2-3

“In my Father’s house
are many mansions:

if it were not so,
I would have told

I go to prepare
a place for you.

And if I go and prepare
a place for you,

I will come again,
and receive you unto

myself; that where I am,
there ye may be 
also.”

In Thy Light ~

Where there is Light CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, how Your wonder,
will shine inside me
when these earthly eyes
get a glimpse of Thee.

The beauty of Your glory,
will blaze upon my face
in that very moment
I’ll see Your amazing grace.

For in Thy light,
I will finally be
and no more darkness
will these eyes have to see.

Your righteousness will glow,
like the dazzling of the sun
flooding the heavens
with the light of Your Son.

You are my shining Star,
the Lamp unto my feet
and in heaven’s eternity
You promise we will meet.

For in Thy light,
there You will also be
and Your holy wonder
is all these eyes will see.

In the City of No Mores ~

Heaven 2 by Jon Kenney free photo #5361

In the City of No Mores,
is where I long to be
and I can hardly wait
until Jesus returns for me.

I am going to walk,
on the street of No More Tears
for God will wipe them away
along with all  my fears.

On the road of No More Pain,
I will be compete and whole
for I will have a new body
with a glorified in Him soul.

I know I will run and jump,
down the path of No More Sin
for the devil and his demons
will be kept from joining in.

On the highway of No More Death,
there will be a jubilant parade
and from Satan’s evil-doings
I will never again be afraid.

The City of No More Separation,
is where I will spend eternity
and I can’t wait to dwell in . . .
the mansion of No More Anxiety!

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

Revelation 21:4
King James Version

“And God shall wipe away

He’s Coming for Me . . .

I’ve been looking for His glory,
to brighten up my day.
Looking for His mercy,
to guide me along my way.

Looking to catch a rainbow,
a promise from above.
Looking to find myself immersed,
in the power of His love.

Then I stopped for a moment,
and looked into the stormy skies.
Like rain drops on my window,
I knew He heard my cries.

For, He sent to me His assurance,
of a day when I will see.
Jesus in His awesome wonder,
coming on clouds for me.

Today I live for that moment,
and until than I will do my best.
For, I know when He appears,
I will have my peace and rest.

I have seen my rainbow,
and in His promise I do believe.
My days belong to the Lord,
until with Him ~ I leave.
