May You Be Enlightened~

May the eyes of your faith,
be so enlightened . . .
may the hope of Jesus
be in you heightened.

For there is great power,
when in God we do trust
for He has put His spirit
right into each one of us.

May your confidence,
be filled with God’s might
so the hope of your calling
may inflame and ignite.

For there is no other One,
on whom we can rely
only God our strength
and power can supply.

May the eyes of your faith,
be flooded with His light
for it is on His power
we are called to fight!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18-21

The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his calling,
and what the riches of the glory
of his inheritance in the saints,

And what is the exceeding greatness
of his power to us-ward who believe,
according to the working
of his mighty power,

Which he wrought in Christ,
when he raised him from the dead,
and set him at his own right hand
in the heavenly places,

Far above all principality, and power,
and might, and dominion, and every
name that is named, not only in this
world, but also in that which is to come:

From The Poem: Holy Spirit Walking

 


The Wind of The Spirit ~

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is relentlessly active . . .
where it chooses to blow
no one can keep track of.

It can’t be viewed by the eye,
only detected by the ear
but you can feel its power
whenever it comes near.

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is like a breeze whispering
or it can be like a gust
as it swiftly comes rushing.

It’s an ongoing indwelling,
a constant infilling
of God’s holy power
a continuous refilling.

The mighty wind of God,
isn’t seen but it’s heard . . .
and those born of the Spirit
know when it’s being stirred!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 3:8

The wind bloweth where it listeth,
and thou hearest the sound thereof,
but canst not tell whence it cometh,
and whither it goeth: so is every one
that is born of the Spirit.

Our Help For Today ~

Our help for today,
tomorrow too . . .
our forever strength
in all we do.

Our constant assistant,
to employ each day
our faithful supporter
as we go our way.

Our power supplier,
now and always
our encourager
for all of our days.

Our motivator,
any day of the week
our confidence builder
when we’re too weak.

Our help for today,
our whole life too . . .
our present strength
God is found in You!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

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 the right hand
of my righteousness.

Holy Spirit Power ~

There is a longing,
that runs so deep
a feeling I have
and want to keep.

It fills a need,
it burns a desire
to be filled with
power and fire.

There is a yearning,
that is compelling
a thirst I have for
a deeper indwelling.

It invigorates,
it profoundly provokes
a feeling of strength
it fiercely evokes.

There is a longing,
a deep yearning . . .
to feel the Holy Spirit
power in my life burning!

~~~~~~~

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power,
after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you:

Keep Irrigated ~

My soul is like a garden,
where God’s Word I grow
I turn it over each day
so faith I can sow.

It’s planted with grace,
hope, mercy and love
provided by God
daily from above.

It often needs weeding,
and a herbicide
so all the bad fruit
can be cast aside.

When it gets too dry,
I have a hardy supply
of Water that is Living
upon my parched out cry.

My soul is like a garden,
daily I tend to it . . .
I keep it irrigated
with the Holy Spirit!

~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 31:12

Therefore they shall come and sing
in the height of Zion, and shall
flow together to the goodness of
the Lord, for wheat, and for wine,
and for oil, and for the young of
the flock and of the herd:
and their soul shall be as a
watered garden; and they shall
not sorrow any more at all.

The Voice ~

If the Holy Spirit’s voice,
you truly want to hear
then you’ll need to give Him
everything that you fear.

For, His voice is low and soft,
you can’t hear it in the roar
and with Him it will be hard
to establish a rapport.

If the Holy Spirit’s voice,
you truly want to heed
then you must trust Him
for everything you need.

For, His voice is powerful,
it can do mighty things
but, you must willingly follow
the instructions that He brings

To hear the Holy Spirit’s voice,
you need to listen carefully
for He will speak right to you . . .
if you do so prayerfully!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 14:26

“But the Comforter, which is the
Holy Ghost, whom the Father will
send in my name, he shall teach
you all things, and bring all
things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you.”

Supercharged ~

When in my life,
I need a power boost
I let the Holy Spirit
in my soul loose.

I sit with my eyes,
closed so ever tightly
asking Him to give me
strength that is mighty.

When in my life,
I need a power surge
I let the Holy Spirit
and my own merge.

I take a deep breath in,
and give Him control
until I can feel Him
stirring in my soul.

When power in my life,
I need to recharge
I ask God to give me . . .
a Holy supercharge!

1 Corinthians 2:5

That your faith should not

but in the power of God.

Let The Water Flow ~

Let the Water flow,
let it gush, let it spew
so it may bring Lord
more thirsty souls to You.

Let the Spirit burst forth,
let it flare, let it erupt
so it may save Lord
the depraved and corrupt.

Let the Truth spill out,
let it ooze, let it seep
so it may harness Lord
lost and wayward sheep.

Let the Light flood,
let it drench, let it surge
so that in Your grace Lord
sinful hearts can purge.

Let the Living Water flow,
let it gush, let it release
so that in You Lord . . .
all can find eternal peace!

~~~~~~

John 7:37-39

In the last day, that great day
of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him
come unto me, and drink.

He that believeth on me,
as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow
rivers of living water.

(But this spake he of the Spirit,
which they that believe on him
should receive: for the Holy Ghost
was not yet given; because that
Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Shake Me Up Lord ~

Shake me up Lord,
loosen up in me
the strength to speak
boldly about Thee.

Arouse me up Lord,
from my idle sleep
so I can encourage
more of Your sheep.

Fire me up Lord,
ignite in me Your power
so I may be Spirit filled
my every waken hour.

Charge me up Lord,
spark in me Your might
so I can be for You
truth’s illuminating light.

Shake me up Lord,
generate in me a flame
so on my lips . . .
will always be Your name!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:31

“And when they had prayed,
the place was shaken where
they were assembled together;
and they were all filled with
the Holy Ghost, and they spake
the word of God with boldness.”

Grieve Not ~

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
nor the effects of His grace
don’t let your appetites
be with corruption laced.

For mighty are the works,
He has in store for you
but, you must allow
His power to come through.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
with your lying, clamoring lips
do not cause Him grief
by your bitter. angry quips.

For He cannot provide,
His strength in your life
if you continue to give
others heartache and strife.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
for it is God’s seal on you
it’s the mark of the souls
who keep heaven in their view!

“And grieve not the holy Spirit
of God, whereby ye are sealed
unto the day of redemption.”

teach us to live
for You wholly.

Bring to us,
power and might
let us be
for You a light.

Spirit of God,
lead and guide
teach us how
we can abide.

Help us to remain,
on the narrow way
to the left or right
help us not to stray.

Spirit of God,

with holy fear
may You we trust!

Adorn ~

Lord, let me adorn,
the spirit You gave me
with Your holy Word
till it’s You in me I see.

May you find in me,
a spirit incorruptible
let it not ever be . . .
to Your hand untouchable.

Lord, let my spirit be,
peaceful and tranquil
one that is to You
grateful and thankful.

Let me be in Your sight,
some one You cherish
let me have a spirit where
meekness can flourish.

Lord, may my spirit,
with love I adorn
so that Your very own . . .
finds no cause to mourn!

~~~~~~

Jesus’ Promise To Us ~

Holy Spirit,
Jesus’ promise to us
may in Your strength
we learn to always trust.

You are our adviser,
our staunch advocate
our fears You help
to fully dissipate.

Holy Spirit,
our soul’s Comforter
may Your power
we fall under.

You bring us hope,
fill us with grace
the joy of our salvation
in You we embrace.

Holy Spirit,
our ever-present Helper
may we always have
Your mighty temper!

Fruit Developing ~

It’s hard sometimes,
having self-control
it’s not easy to let
restraint into your soul.

But, it needn’t be,
as hard as you think
when with the Holy Spirit
your life is in sync.

It’s hard sometimes,
to be peaceful
it’s not easy to let
hope make you joyful.

But, it needn’t be,
that difficult to do
when the Holy Spirit
works inside of you.

It’s hard sometimes,
to be good and kind
it’s not easy to let
gentleness fill your mind.

But, it needn’t be,
too problematic
for, with the Holy Spirit
it becomes automatic.

It’s hard sometimes,
developing these fruits
unless the Holy Spirit . . .
establishes their roots!

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law.”

The Holy Spirit’s Power ~

Holy Spirit,
we all need You
to help us daily
to battle through.

Without Your strength,
to overcome
to each temptation
we would succumb.

Holy Spirit,
God’s gift to us
in Your power
we need to trust.

Without Your courage,
to make us willing
to the world ways
we’d still be living.

Holy Spirit,
who dwells within
only You can give us . . .
power over sin!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 1:8

“But ye shall receive power,
after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you:”

1 Corinthians 10:13

“There hath no temptation taken you
but such as is common to man:
but God is faithful, who will
not suffer you to be tempted
above that ye are able;
but will with the temptation
also make a way to escape,
that ye may be able to bear it.”

We All Need A Friend ~

we-all-need-a-friend-chrisitian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We all need a friend,
to encourage us
we all need someone
who in God truly trusts.

We all need a partner,
with whom we can pray
someone who will help us
stay on the narrow way.

We all need a mentor,
in whom we can share
someone who understands
the weight of our care.

We all need a confidant,
to help our faith grow
someone who believes
God’s will we can know.

We all need a friend,
a faithful supporter
we all need God’s Spirit
to be our shock absorber!

The Power of Sin ~

the-power-of-sin-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The power of sin,
is seductive
it’s beguiling
and additive.

The power of sin,
is heady
it’s lethal
and deadly.

The power of sin,
is attractive
it’s evil
and destructive.

The power of sin,
is toxic
it’s noxious
and caustic.

The power of sin,
you can’t control
unless God’s Spirit
is in your soul!

~~~~~~~

Romans 8:4-5

That the righteousness
of the law might be
fulfilled in us,
who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.

For they that are after
the flesh do mind the things
of the flesh; but they
that are after the Spirit
the things of the Spirit.”

Fruit Producing ~

fruit-bearing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Filled with the Spirit,
producing His fruit
now that in my heart
God’s love took root.

As I continue to grow,
more joy and peace
I find being patient
is easier to release.

As I’m cultivating,
the seeds of gentleness
it’s becoming natural
to sow deeds of goodness.

Tempering my faith,
with lots of meekness
is helping me to serve
with true humbleness.

Filled with the Spirit,
growing His fruit . . .
praying with God’s help
they will all take root!

~~~~~~~

So many blessings,

my life depends.

Heavenly gifts,
from my Father to me
so the truth and way
I will always see.

Longing to give,
eager to impart
power and might
right into my heart.

Heavenly gifts,
my Father sends my way
His spiritual fruit . . .
for me to grow each day!

To Be Like Jesus ~

To Be Like Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by Deborah Ann

To be like Jesus,
our minds have to entwine
it may take a lifetime . . .
for our hearts to align.

For us to finally put off,
our former, sinful ways
to our old worldly desires
we must daily reappraise.

Our old lustful thoughts,
must daily be transformed
our greedy attitudes
will need to be reformed.

Our minds have to be,
continuously changed
from our corrupt attitudes
we must become estranged.

To be like Jesus,
takes the Holy Spirit’s doing
it may take a lifetime . . .
but, it’s so worth our pursuing!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:22-24

” That ye put off concerning the former
conversation the old man, which is
corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

And that ye put on the new man,
which after God is created in
righteousness and true holiness.”

Rain on us Lord,

Flood us in Your love,
sprinkle us with Your grace
let the showers of Your mercy
every soul come to embrace.

Rain on us Lord,
let the skies open up wide
pour out life-giving water
till You gather Your bride.

Send on us a torrent,
of Your power and might
drench us with the peace
of Your saving light.

Rain on us Lord,
ignite a burning desire
set every soul aflame . . .
with the Holy Spirit’s fire!

Holy Spirit’s Power ~

Holy Spirit's Power ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

This year I want to be,
filled with the Holy Spirit
to His mighty boldness . . .
I want daily to commit.

I want to be enlightened,
when I read the Good News
I want to help show others
the path they need to choose.

I want to be encouraged,
as I advance in the fight
I want to inspire others . . .
to come to the Saving Light.

I want to help set free,
the captives of the dark
I want to ignite in them
the Holy Spirit’s spark.

I want to exchange my pain,
for praise and joyfulness
I want to be a testimony
to God’s peacefulness.

This year I want to help,
others to learn to cope
I want them to see in me
the reason for my hope!

The Wind of God’s Spirit ~

The Wind of God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is constantly blowing
in the lives of believers
it’s continually flowing.

It’s powerful and mighty,
it’s character changing
in the souls of believers
it’s behavior alternating.

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is constantly reforming
in the minds of believers
it’s attitude transforming.

It’s quick and it’s strong,
it’s deep and penetrating
in the hearts of believers
it’s profound and regulating.

The wind of God’s Spirit,
blows as it pleases . . .
for it’s the very breath of God
that governs the breezes!

in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set
him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,”

Holy Spirit Stirring ~

holy-spirit-by-michaela-baltazar-free-photo-4686

Sometimes down inside,
I feel this warmth within
coming from a place so deep
I can’t explain, just wherein.

There’s a sense of peace,
an inspired calmness
it fills my heart with joy
till it flows with gladness.

As I take it all in,
I feel myself come alive
the feeling it gives me
no words can describe.

I wish I could harness it,
so to always feel this way
I wish I could release it
every second of the day.

Sometimes way down deep,
a feeling rises up and swells
I know it comes from a place
where the Holy Spirit dwells!

give me faith
in what I can’t see.

Be my truth,
I need Your sight
Holy Spirit
be my guiding light.

Holy Spirit,
control my mind
direct me to where
Your peace I’ll find.

Be my shield,
show me the way
Holy Spirit
lead me how to pray.

Holy Spirit,
teach me to trust
help me to see
You’re always just.

Reveal to me,
what is Your plan
govern me with
Your mighty hand.

Holy Spirit,
come comfort me
let me forever . . .
abide with Thee!

Using our Gifts ~

serve-one-anotherused with permission IBibel Verses

Lord, to all you have given,
gifts to which You’ve entrust
so many diverse talents
You have given each of us.

You have endowed us all,
with spiritual abilities
so many of us are blessed
with unique qualities.

You awarded each one,
with their own personality
so together we can be one
regardless of our specialty.

We all have the capability,
but, sadly not the desire
to use our gifts and talents
to enlighten and inspire.

Lord, if we chose to use,
the gifts You’ve given us
just think how many more . . .
in You, would place their trust!

Holy Spirit ~ CHRISTian Poetry by deborah ann

Holy Spirit, come to me,
rest right here, inside of me
guard my heart, keep my mind
let it be Your peace, that I find.

Holy Spirit, come be with me,
continually support, all of me
lead my soul, direct my ways
hear the words, my heart prays.

Holy Spirit, come anoint me,
place your seal, right here in me
Spirit of Life, Spirit of Grace
may Your wisdom, I embrace.

Holy Spirit, come comfort me,
release and deliver, unto me
all Your might, all Your power
counsel me, every waking hour.

Holy Spirit, my Father’s gift to me,
Spirit of Christ, living inside me
Spirit of God, Spirit of holy Fear
come whisper truth, in my ear!

Spirit Led ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Life - IBible Verses

Some mornings I lie,
awake in my bed . . .
with thoughts of You
going through my head.

I wonder what You have,
for me to do today . . .
I think about the things
You will send my way.

I consider my options,
I ponder my choices
in my head I can hear
disagreeing voices.

“Do this ~ no, do that,
maybe some of this too”
but, Lord all I want . . .
is to live to please You.

Some mornings I lie,
awake in my bed . .
refusing to get up
until I’m Spirit led.

“Woe to them that devise iniquity,
and work evil upon their beds!

Lord, Empty Me ~

Holy Spirit by Michaela Baltazar free photo #4686

Lord, empty me of me,
so, I can be filled with You
drain my soul of my pride
the stubbornness in it too.

Remove my self-importance,
take my smugness away
get rid of the very thought
I can do things my own way.

Lord, empty me of me,
the arrogance and conceit
to my own selfish will . . .
may I declare, a sound defeat.

Take out any lust or greed,
the need for self-indulgence
to any unrighteousness . . .
give me a zero tolerance.

Lord, empty me of me,
anything keeping me from You
so into my very soul . . .
the Holy Spirit can get through!

If I Could Reach into Your Soul ~

If I Could Reach Into Your Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If I could reach into your soul,
I’d put Jesus into your heart
with the promise that from you
He will never leave or depart.

I would assure you of the hope,
that now dwells inside of you
I’d tell you to count on Jesus
the rest of your life through.

If I could reach into your mind,
I’d put God’s peace in your thought
with the assurance for your sins
on the cross Jesus  bought.

I would assure you of God’s grace,
how in your heart He now lives
I’d tell you of God’s mercy
how through Jesus He forgives.

If I could reach into your soul,
I’d put the love of Jesus into you
but, I know that it’s the work . . .
the Holy Spirit needs to do!

Godly Devotion ~

all your resentment.

If you want love.
true Godly raw devotion
you much be willing
to control your emotions.

If you want hope.
true Godly assurance
you must pray for strength
so you’ll have endurance.

I you want tranquility,
truly Godly calm

like a soothing balm.

If you want to be meek,

Works of the Flesh ~

fruit used with permission IBible Vereses

Having a hard time,
loving one another
feeling shades of green
looking at your brother?

Not very patient,
with your friends or family
finding your spoken words
being said, more angrily?

Looking at the world,
through rose-colored glasses
thinking it’s not so bad
to follow the masses?

Wondering when real joy,
will pop back into your life
tired of all the problems
causing everyday strife?

Well, stop for a minute
and ask yourself this . . .
“Am I letting the Spirit lead
or do I constantly resist?”

For the fruit of the Spirit,
we can only produce . . .
when to the works of the flesh
we become a recluse!

Wrong Side of The Bed ~

your-spirit-is-strong-in-me_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, this morning I woke up,
on the wrong side of the bed
my mind was overwhelmed
with the day that was ahead.

I grabbed a cup of coffee,
picked up a good devotional
but I really wasn’t into it
didn’t find it to be consolable.

I gathered up my Bible,
read a verse or two . . .
but I really wasn’t focused
for the truth to get through.

My day didn’t get better,
it showed in my attitude
I wasn’t very kind or patient
didn’t give too much latitude.

Now that the evening’s here,
as I reflect upon my day
I can see how weak I am
when to Your Word I disobey.

Lord, this morning I woke up,
on the wrong side of the bed
so tonight, I’ll try the other side
and pray tomorrow, I’ll be spirit lead!

My Comfort Rests ~

jesuscomforter-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Holy Spirit, my comfort rests,
upon the bosom of Thy breast
You soothe me when I’m in need
I am calm, when to You I heed.

I call out to Thee, upon my bed,
thoughts of peace fill my head
into Thy hands my soul now rests
in Your stillness, I feel blessed.

Oh, my Comforter my fears relieve,
so Thy tranquility, I may receive
come yet closer to me as I pray
show me the truth, light and way.

Holy Spirit, my comfort rests,
You’ll not hear, my protests . . .
abide with me forever more
be my anchor, my soul’s moor!

My Comforter ~

My Comforter

I have me a companion,
a Friend that is constant
someone who will come
to my aid in an instant.

Someone I can lean on,
when I need to be soothed
someone I can trust
when I need the truth.

Someone who will cry,
right along with me
someone who understands
my deepest, soulful need.

Someone who is strong,
whenever I am weak
someone who brings joy
whenever I feel bleak.

Jesus gave to me,
His Spirit as my Helper
and I always run to Him
whenever I need shelter!

Sweet Savior Jesus,
perpetual love . . .
sends me His Spirit
on the wings of a dove.

Whispers my name,
on His soaring flight
cooing to me
to be His delight.

Spreading His wings,
to shelter me in
nuzzles my heart
to get closer to Him.

Lands on my soul,
nudges me the way
I follow after Him
all of my days.

Sweet Savior Jesus,
eternal love . . .
sends me His peace
on the wings of a dove!

Jesus is There For You ~

God will Lift You Up used with permission IBible Verses

We rush and we fuss,
but we get nowhere
so much to do
it doesn’t seem fair.

No one to support us,
or give a helping hand
sometimes it feels . . .
like we’re in quicksand.

But, lift up your head,
and open your eyes
look for His saving light
in those dark skies.

For, Jesus is there,
watching out for you
He’s there to help us
in whatever we do.

So no need to panic,
fuss, rush, or sink
Jesus is our helper
the strongest link.

Things will get better,
as they always do . . .
when you let His Spirit
guide and lead you!
