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
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness.

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!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 17:17

A friend loveth at all times,

John 15:13

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

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,
and they shall hear my voice;

and there shall be one fold,
and one shepherd.”

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
heard my voice
and my supplications.

Because he hath
inclined his ear
unto me, therefore
will I call upon
him as long as I live.

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!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 18:24

A man that hath friends
must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that
sticketh closer than a brother.

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.

2 Corinthians 11:14

And no marvel;
for Satan himself
is transformed into
an angel of light.

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,
despising the shame, and is set
down at the right hand of the
throne of God.”

No One But Jesus ~

No one but Jesus,
can save you . . .
no one besides
can you go to.

No one else,
can deliver you . . .
no one other
love is this true.

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

No one else,
just Jesus alone . . .
no one other
your sin’s can atone.

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

As for me, I will call upon God;

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!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:29-30

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for
I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall

My Sin ~

My sin,
Jesus’ life
my evil
His strife.

My hope,
Jesus’ death
my trust
His last breath.

My light,
Jesus’ way
my soul
His today.

My heart,
Jesus’ home
my future
in Him alone!

Embracing The New ~

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

It’s finally saying goodbye,
to former desires
and letting the Holy Spirit
ignite into 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!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.

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!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:11-12

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

and he that hath not the Son
of God hath not life.”

He is my calm
giving me endurance.

Jesus is my love,
my faith’s objective
He is my purpose
giving me perspective.

Jesus is my anchor,
my trust’s serenity
He is my Rock
giving me tranquility.

Jesus is my Advocate,
my sin absorber
He is my Refuge
giving me a safe harbor.

Jesus is my peace,
my happy ever after
Jesus is to me . . .
all that really matters!

Put Jesus First ~

When you put Jesus,
first on your list
there He will be
right in the midst.

For when you meet,
with Jesus each day
He will by your side
unfailingly stay.

When you make Jesus,
your top priority

more seriously
the more you will train
for the race rigorously.

When you trust Jesus,
fully and completely
you will go to Him
each day more routinely!

Don’t Be Offended ~

When you find yourself,
for Jesus being mocked
and your faith in God
is always getting knocked.

Don’t be offended,
by what people might do
rather let God’s peace
be what they see in you.

When you find yourself,
endlessly put down
and you’re tormented
for the truth you found.

Don’t be taken back,
by what people say
rather let Jesus help you
to show them the way.

When you’re attacked,
for your Godly belief . . .
don’t let it cause you
one iota of grief!

Jesus Is The Only One ~

Jesus Your light is,
the only One that can
break through the stone
in the heart of man.

For it can shatter,
the cold and icy frost
and bring the ungodly
to the foot of the cross.

Jesus Your light bursts.
the darkness right apart
taking down the barriers
inside of man’s heart.

For it can obliterate,
the evil and corruption
saving the heart of man
from eternal destruction.

Jesus You alone are . . .
the only One who can
breach into the darkness
of the heart of man!

when they steal your hope
leaving you only strife.

Call upon Jesus,
for a change of heart
and His perfect peace
into it He’ll impart.

When you are buried,
deep in despair
when overwhelmed
by all your care.

Call upon Jesus,
for a change of mind
and His gentle love
you will surely find.

When your world,
comes crumbling down
call upon Jesus . . .
and your joy will rebound!

flow right out of Him.

He is my absolute
for God’s tender mercy
in me He imputes.

Jesus is my grace,
He is my true salvation
for God suffered Him
to save me from damnation.

He is my Lord and Life
for God sent Him
to take Himself my strife.

He is my hallelujah Amen . . .
all my faith and trust
I put into God and Him!

Rock Bottom ~

Hitting rock bottom
having a hard time
thinking not another
mountain to climb?

Well, don’t you ever forget,
just who is your Rock
or who over that mountain
will help you to walk.

Up against a rock,
and a hard place
thinking you should
just quit the race?

Well don’t you give up,
hold on to the Rock
and through that valley
He will help you walk.

Having a hard time,
in your faithful walk?
Well don’t you forget
Jesus is your Rock!

Eternal Grief ~

I could read everything offered,
on religion and theology
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
it would all just be garbology.

I could study every book,
written by man on his thought
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
all I’ve gleaned will be for naught.

I could go to a university,
cram long into the dead of night
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
I will never see the True Light.

I could take tests and exams,
to see what I’ve learned
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
in hell I’ll forever burn.

I could read everything offered,
by man about his belief . . .
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
I’ll just end up with eternal grief!

Joyful Are We ~

Joyful are we,
who are saved by grace
who Jesus’ love
our hearts embrace.

Happy are we,
who trust in the Lord
who know His peace
will be our reward.

Blessed are we,
who hope in a future
where Jesus will be
our King and ruler.

Grateful are we,
who in faith believe
the Spirit of Jesus
is ours to receive.

Joyful are we,
who know God’s favor
who believe Jesus is
our risen Savior!

Never Forgotten ~

When your friends,
have moved on . . .
and your family
is all but gone.

Know you have,
a Friend around
one who’ll never
let you down.

When You find,
yourself all alone
sitting in . . .
your lonesome home.

Know there is someone,
who’ll never leave
and onto Him
you can always cleave.

When you feel as if,
you’ve been deserted
and with thought’s lonely
you’re being bombarded.

Know that you are,
never truly forgotten
for, Jesus forsakes not
those downtrodden!

Washed In The Blood ~

Jesus’ blood,
washed over me
now His love
has set me free.

Free from quilt,
free from blame
for, upon Himself
He took my shame.

Jesus’ blood,
flooded over me
flushing out sin’s
grit and debris.

At not a cost,
His grace I attained
now through faith
I’m no longer sin-stained.

Jesus’s blood,
washed over me
giving me a life . . .
now sin free!

sins in his own blood,

And hath made us kings
and priests unto God
and his Father;
to him be glory
and dominion
for ever and ever.”
