If I Could Write . . .

above-the-clouds CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If I could write on the clouds,
the raindrops would descend
with the words of my undying love
for in Jesus ~ I’ve no better friend.

If I could write on the seas,
the waves would fall and crest
with the words of my endless faith
for in Jesus ~ I have perfect rest.

If I could write on the mountains,
the foothills would spell out and read
the words of my everlasting trust
for in Jesus ~ I have all that I need.

If I could write on the grass lands,
the blades would clap and sing
with the words of my heartfelt praise
for in Jesus ~ I have an eternal King.

If I could write on the sky,
the twinkling stars would letter out
the words of my eternal hope
for in Jesus~ I’ve not a single doubt.

If I could write up in heaven,
I would spell out your very name . . .
and pray your life you would give Him
for in Jesus ~ you’ll never be the same!

King James Version

touching the king:
my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”

The Real Housewife in God’s Home!

Proverbs 31.25  used with permission Creation Swap

The real housewife in God’s home,
isn’t like the one in Beverly Hills
for you won’t see her strutting about
in a short skirt and her high heels.

She has a heart that is spun of gold,
she’s full of wisdom and God’s grace
she doesn’t wear a lot of makeup
to cover her unfaithful, plastic face.

Her husband is pleased with her,
he trusts her to do what is right
she is not quarrelsome or angry
with him she does not pick a fight.

She manages all of his earthly affairs,
she doesn’t have one with her neighbor
she makes her husband proud of her
and in his eyes she holds his favor.

The real housewife in God’s house,
doesn’t go to fancy, pricey dining places
she plants, reaps, and serves her meals
to her families happy, grateful faces.

She isn’t a nosey, busy body,
and gossip to her is a dirty word
instead she shares the Gospel truth
spreading the goodness she has heard.

She isn’t an ambitious career woman,
who leaves her family to fend for itself
she is a strong, dignified, caring woman
who gives God her inner and outer self.

Her husband and children love her,
and respect her kind, generous ways
she’s not like the wives of Beverly Hills
for, she’s given God all her living days!

When I Consider ~

I Consider used with permision DoorPost Verses on Facebook

God, when I consider,
all that You’ve made
how the sun slowly rises
as the moon begins to fade.

I’m in awe,
of  all the beauty I see
in this amazing universe
You’ve set before me.

When I consider,
the trillion stars in the sky
hanging on the dark backdrop
placed so ever, ever high.

I’m in awe,
of the works of Your hand
in the heavens so far above
from down here where I stand.

When I consider,
the stars, moon and the sun
I know beyond them . . .
is Your Kingdom yet to come.

I’m in awe,
of the splendor of my view
starlit glimpses of eternity
when I’ll be home with You!

Psalm 8:3
King James Version

“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,
the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;”

A Quiet Heart ~

God_Wants_To_Talk_To_You free photo

A quiet heart,
must be still
to hear the voice
of God’s will.

An inward calm,
is our assurance
He’s in control
our reassurance.

Life in His hand,
is peace known
trust runs deep
His way is shown.

Abiding hope,
is His promise
eternal love
its accomplice.

A quiet heart,
must be thankful
to a God
who is tranquil.

A quiet heart,
must be full of peace
for God’s stillness
to bring it release!

King James Version

The Gift ~

It's All From You by Brennen Baxter free photo #3030

The artist is nothing without the Gift,
no portrait would ever be so grand
all the colors would run together
without the touch, of the Master’s hand.

The musician is nothing without the Gift,
no melody would ever be sung or played
the notes would lie alone on the sheet
without the Creator’s, support and aid.

The poet is nothing without the Gift,
no prose would ever come alive
the rhyme would be dull and lifeless
without the Word, to help it to survive.

The potter is nothing without the Gift,
the clay would be without form
it would be full of lumps and clumps
without the Spirit to transform

The architect is nothing without the Gift,
no bridge would ever cross the span
the connection would not bear up
without putting His salvation in the plan.

There is no talent without the Gift,
no one would be able to vie or compete
our abilities would lie unfinished . . .
ah, but the Gift makes us complete!

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the Gift of God is eternal life through

Grateful . . .

How often do I put the blame on Thee,
instead of looking at the sin in me?
I sometimes wonder ~ if You are there,
but instead it is me  who doesn’t care.

My narrow mind and blinded eye,
can only fault and ask You why.
Then in my selfish, sinful pride,
I run away from You and try to hide.

But You find me no matter what,
and You know the churning in my gut.
You chase me in my wrongful flight,
to prove You’re just and always right.

Your loving arms wrap around me,
to console and try to make me see.
From You I never have to run away,
that You won’t let me go astray.

Oh, how grateful now that I know,
You would never, ever let me go.
Thank You Lord for staying near,
and for Your peace ~ not my fear.

O GOD the Lord; In You I take refuge;
Do not leave my soul destitute.”

I am His Poet . . .

For years now, I have been a poet,
rhyming my faith into God’s verse
coming up with the right words . . .
so His truth I could converse.

I have struggled with the sounds,
of the syllables that I should use
and at times I have thought . . .
their meaning  ~ you would refuse.

I’ve given the nouns my every thought,
my verbs have been carefully chosen
and sometimes all the adjectives . . .
in my mind have become frozen.

I have tried to dot all my i’s,
and to cross my every t . . .
but sometimes my punctuation
can get away from me.

My meter may be off,
my rhyme made not be clear
but the one thing that I know
God gives me the words for you to hear.

I am His poet,
He uses me in this way
and all that I want to do
is to make sure His . . .
Mercy
Grace
Love
Forgiveness
Hope
Joy
Peace
Salvation
Glory
. . . . I convey!

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

Thank you to those who have written me and
thanked me for my poetry . . . you are a source of
inspiration to me to continue on!

In Him,

Deborah Ann
