Transforming Lives ~

He transforms lives,
a good work He’s doing
all because you are . . .
worth His pursuing.

He takes the wounded,
heals the grief and pain
He relieves the hurt
erases its scar and stain.

He captures the troubled,
changes their hearts
then love and peace
into them He imparts.

He removes the bitter,
in the sour old soul
He mends the mind
til it’s well and whole.

He takes the enraged,
makes them gleeful
He humbles them
to be for Him useful.

Transforming lives,
is His daily business
for Jesus is into . . .
healing and forgiveness!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:13

For it is God which worketh

Set Apart For Jesus ~

Set apart because,
He first loved us . . .
are those who have
in God faith and trust.

A life separated,
from worldly ways
devoted to Jesus
for all our days.

His Spirit within us,
now with Him we abide
no longer is there
an emptiness inside.

A life to God submitted,
holy and consecrated
now understand why
they were even created.

Set apart all because,
we were first loved . . .
now we are the children
of the One who’s Beloved!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:19

We love him,
because he
first loved us.

Matthew 3:17

And lo a voice from heaven,

in whom I am well pleased.

In Christ I’m United ~

In Christ I’m united,
with Him I am one
for He has made me
with Him a son.

Together we share,
a common destiny
one that will be
blissfully heavenly.

In Christ I’m a heir,
to mercy and grace
once His life and blood
I fully embraced.

Together we have,
a priesthood holy
once I put my trust
in Him wholly.

In Christ I’m united,
in nature divine
together we’re one
by God’s own design!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:11

And this is the record,
that God hath given
to us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.

According as his divine power
hath given unto us all things
that pertain unto life and godliness,
through the knowledge of him
that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Complete and Alive ~

Complete in Christ,
no more lacking
ever since with Him
I started walking.

For He directs,
all of my steps
so I may follow
all of His concepts.

Alive in Christ,
to self now dead
ever since I agreed
to be Spirit led.

For He guides,
all of my days
so I may follow
all of His ways.

Complete in Christ
in Him alive and well
ever since His spirit . . .
came into me to dwell!

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 2:9-10

For in him dwelleth
all the fulness of the
Godhead bodily.

And ye are complete in him,
which is the head of all

The Bread Of Life ~

Bread of Life,
spirit’s nourishment
feeds our hearts
with encouragement.

For when we thirst,
He fills us with hope
to help us each day
to adapt and cope.

Bread of Life,
leads us the Way
so to the truth
we will not stray.

For when we hunger,
after righteousness
He will transform us
into His likeness.

Bread of Life,
nourishment spiritual
feeds us the truth
that is scriptural!

John 6:35

And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me shall
never hunger; and he that

If I Were More Like My Master ~

If I were more like my Master . . .
I’d walk miles in the sand
just to lend someone
a helping, loving hand.

I’d be compassionate and kind,
gracious and merciful too
I’d give godly instructions
and show them what to do.

I’d calm down the waves,
walk on the turbulent sea
I’d encourage others to have
the faith to follow after me.

I’d see the lost and unsaved,
all the hungry people to feed
I would let them all know . . .
salvation was what they need.

I’d travel to every city,
spread the Good News around
I’d speak of Jesus’ forgiveness
how new life can be found.

If I were more like my Master . . .
I’d have a spirit of servitude
humility and meekness
would be my constant attitude!

He Heals The Soul ~

He repairs hearts,
fills in the holes
mends the spirit
heals the soul.

His love reaches,
the deep recesses
where painful thoughts
hide and depresses.

He gives grace,
to those in need
His tender mercies
vastly exceed.

He steadies the nerves,
calms down the mind
so our fragile past
we can leave behind.

Jesus fills in the hole,
He’s the missing piece . . .
He is the only One
who can bring true peace!

I See The Light ~

I see the Light,
I see it glowing . . .
I see the shadows
on sin it’s throwing.

It shines the Truth
upon the Way
it radiates Hope
of a more joyful day.

It reflects Love,
strength and power
its radiance makes
the darkness scour.

It glistens with grace,
it illuminates life
it opens the eye
to everlasting strife.

I see the Light,
I see it glowing . . .
and I know from Jesus
is where it is flowing!

~~~~~~~~

John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk
in darkness, but shall have
the light of life.

Acts 26:18

To open their eyes, and to turn them
from darkness to light, and from
the power of Satan unto God,
that they may receive forgiveness
of sins, and inheritance among
them which are sanctified by
faith that is in me.

Be Not Defeated ~

I know your sorrows,
I know your grief
I know you’re hated
for your belief.

For I too was pained,
I did too grieve
for those who refused
in Me to believe.

I know your trials,
I know you’re weary
I know how this life
can leave you teary.

For I too wept,
my heart too did cry
for I knew for the world
I would have to die.

I know your weakness,
I know you’re depleted
but, I have overcome . . .
so be not defeated!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:4

Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.

John 16:33

These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

Jesus Is My Everything ~

Jesus is my everything,
He gives me peace and calm
to my soul He is just like . . .
a healing, soothing balm.

Whenever I am fearful,
with feelings of dismayed
He whispers in my ear
Child be ye not afraid.

Jesus is my everything,
He gives me tranquility
into my life He brings
everlasting stability.

When I am fainthearted,
when feeling overwhelmed
He whispers in my ear
Child I’m still at the helm.

Jesus is my everything,
He is my one true hope
I pray to Him each day . . .
give me the strength to cope!

If Not For Jesus ~

If it were not for Jesus,
I would not have made it
if it were not for Him . . .
giving me a new spirit.

But, once He came along,
He put flesh into my heart
and now to the world
I am no longer a part.

If it were not for Jesus,
I would have turned back
if it were not for His Word
to help keep me on track.

But, He shines His Light,
on the Truth and Way
so from the narrow path
I’ll not wander or stray.

If it were not for Jesus,
I would have surely given in . . .
to the pressures of the world
to go out again and sin!

~~~~~~~~

John 8: 1011

When Jesus had lifted
up himself, and saw none
but the woman, he said
unto her, Woman, where
are those thine accusers?
hath no man condemned thee?

She said, No man, Lord.
And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more.

Oh, Faithful Is Jesus ~

Oh, faithful is Jesus,
who our sin’s forgive
who when grace is needed
more of it He gives.

How generous is He,
who gives us each day
the Light that shines
on the Truth and Way.

Oh, faithful is He,
who purifies and clean
who when love is desired
more of it we can glean.

How unselfish is He,
who died for ours sins
so our very souls
He could redeem and win.

Oh, how faithful is Jesus,
who had no quilt or shame
that He should live to die . . .
for our eternal gain!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins
he is faithful and just

I Know No Other Friend ~

I know no better friend,
no other to hang around
none who can help to keep
my heart and mind sound.

I know no pal or buddy,
no other who can for me
keep my faith believing
in what I cannot see.

I know no other sidekick,
no other to spend my day
none who can help me
on the narrow way to stay.

I know no acquaintance,
no other who I can confide
none who can promise me
to always be at my side.

I know no better friend,
no other one who is true
that is why Jesus . . .
I put my faith in only You!

A friend loveth at all times,

Jesus Is Enough ~

Jesus is enough,
there’s nothing you can do
Jesus is the only One
who can save you.

Jesus is enough,
He is above everything
Jesus is the one absolute
He is the sum of all things.

Jesus is enough,
no need to add or take away
Jesus is the only One
leading to the Life, Truth and Way.

Jesus is enough,
He is the One constant and true
Jesus grace is sufficient
there’s nothing more to pursue.

Jesus is enough,
everything else put aside
for no works of our labor . . .
can salvation provide!

~~~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:12

Neither is there salvation
in any other:
for there is none other name
under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved.

Oh, To Hear His Voice ~

Oh, to hear His voice in clarity,
confusion to come to cease
to rid our life of all anxiety
with the infusion of His peace.

To know His voice of wisdom,
all foolishness put to an end
to listen for His instructions
on life’s every path and bend.

To know His voice of counsel,
all bad advice to be banished
to oust the voice of darkness
until wickedness has vanished.

To know His voice of rest,
all fear brought to its knees
to drive out the enemy
and watch him as he flees.

To know His voice of truth,
all deception put to bed
to cast out satan’s trickery
so we can be Spirit lead.

Oh, to hear His voice in clarity,
is our Shepherd’s prayer
to rid our lives of anxiety . . .
so to find rest in His care!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 10:16

“And other sheep I have,
which are not of this fold:

them also I must bring,

Because~

I love the Lord because,
He hears my every cry
I love I can pray to Him
till my tears all but dry.

I love that He hears,
every prayer I pray
I love that He listens
to each word I say.

I love the Lord because,
on Him I can always call
I love that my pleas . . .
on deaf ears never fall.

I love the that my voice,
He knows so very well
I love my prayers to Him
are as crystal as a bell.

I love the Lord because,
for me He’s always there
I love that I can trust Him
with my every prayer!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 116:1-2

I love the Lord,
because he hath

My Forever Friend ~

My Forever Friend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann free to use

Some people have friends,
they call them their best
but, I have only One . . .
who gives me perfect rest.

With me He never leaves,
by my side He remains
whatever I need of Him
He never complains.

Some people have friends,
they call them their pals
but, I know of only One . . .
whose love never fails.

With me He provides,
all that I could want
my requests of Him
never come back to haunt.

Some people have friends,
they call them whatever . . . .
but, Jesus is my Friend
who will be there forever!

A man that hath friends
must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that

Bogus Light ~

For Jesus I try not,
to let my light dim
so that I can be . . .
a True Light like Him.

So I’m very leery,
with all that I hear
for wolves like sheep
are too many I fear.

For Jesus I keep,
my light daily lit
it’s in the Scriptures
where I keep my faith fit.

So I’m very wary,
with all that I read . . .
and to false teaching
I refuse to heed.

For Jesus is the True Light,
all others are bogus . . .
tis why I keep this truth
always in my focus!

~~~~~~~~~

John 1:9

That was the true Light,
which lighteth every man
that cometh into the world.

Jesus Our Teacher ~

Jesus is our teacher,
we learn from Him daily
how to live our lives
fearlessly and bravely.

He leads and shows us,
how we should pray
when we need His help
throughout the day.

Jesus is our role model,
of how we need to live
for He shows us how
we can love and forgive.

He gives us the faith,
to believe in His grace
so we can remain strong
in the faithful race.

Jesus is our teacher,
to God our One connector
He is our faith’s . . .
generator and perfecter!

~~~~~~~~

John 3:2

“The same came to Jesus by night,
and said unto him, Rabbi, we know
that thou art a teacher come from God:
for no man can do these miracles that
thou doest, except God be with him.

Hebrews 12:2

“Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,

No one but Jesus,
can offer liberty . . .
no one otherwise
can end your misery.

No one else,

no one other
your sin’s can atone.

No, not one,
no god made by man
can save you . . .
only Jesus can!

Let Me Carry That For You ~

Let Me carry that for you,
your heavy load give to Me
let Me have all your cares
so you can be burden free.

Give Me all your anguish,
all the pain you still feel
give Me your grief and sorrow
so your heart I can heal.

Let Me take from you,
all that’s weighing on your mind
give Me your troubles
and worries of every kind.

Give Me your tiredness,
the weary beat in your heart
let Me take the stress
that is keeping us apart.

Let Me carry that for you,
in My hand place your care
give it to Me my dear child . . .
for it’s now mine to bear!

~~~~~~~~

Embracing The New ~

Embracing the new,
getting rid of the old
is freeing and liberating
makes us for Jesus bold.

It’s saying goodbye,
to former desires
it’s letting the Holy Spirit
ignite in our souls a fire.

Taking off the weight,
of spiritual depression
allows Jesus to make
a lasting impression.

It’s doing away with self,
and letting Jesus in
it’s going out everyday
not falling back into sin.

Doing away with the old,
for what is new . . .
is letting Jesus become
a part of you!

~~~~~~~~~

Therefore if any man be in Christ,

a taste of heaven above.

It anoints me with,
a hopeful tranquility

a buoyant stability.

Thank You Jesus,
for Your gentle ease
to me it’s like . . .
a perfumed breeze.

It refreshes me with,
a jubilant thankfulness
gives my trust
a humble gratefulness.

Thank You Jesus,
for being God’s sweet savour
for without Your sacrifice . . .
I would have no Savior!

Life Without Jesus ~

You may have breath,
your heart may beat
but, you don’t have Life
until Jesus you meet.

You may have sight,
your eyes may perceive
but, you don’t have Life
if in God you don’t believe.

You may have reason,
your ears may detect
but, you don’t have Life
if Jesus you reject.

You may have vitality,
your body may go
but, you don’t have Life
until Jesus you know.

You may have breath,
but, you don’t have Life
for without Jesus . . .
there’s only eternal strife!

of God hath not life.”
