A Future Of Hope ~

A future filled with hope,
is a future worth knowing
for out of it are rivers
of living water flowing.

It’s a future of rest,
joy and elation
found in the well of
eternal salvation.

A future filled with hope,
is a future God planed
for it has been formed
by His very own hand.

It’s a future of peace,
of what is to come
when Jesus returns
to set up His kingdom.

A future filled with hope,
is worth our pursuing
for it’s a future with God
that is all consuming!

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

The Time is Brief ~

Now more than ever,
we need to be watchful
we need to stick to . . .
the truths in the Gospel.

For the time is nearing,
when all we will hear
are satan and his lies
shouted in our ears.

Now more than ever,
we need to be strong
we need to discern
right from wrong.

For now is the time,
for us to make a choice
to listen to the world’s
or the Holy Spirit’s voice.

Now more than ever,
the time is brief . . .
for Jesus is coming
just like a thief!

1 Thessalonians 5:2

“For yourselves know
perfectly that the day
of the Lord so cometh
as a thief in the night.”

The World’s Fate ~

When I think about,
the world around me
and all the chaos
I daily see.

I can not help,
but to wonder
how it will last
too much longer.

When I think about,
this world I’m in
and all I see
is evil and sin.

I can not help,
but to ponder
oh dear Lord
how much longer?

When I think about,
the world’s fate
for Jesus’ return
I can not wait!

Romans 8:6

“For to be carnally minded
is death; but to be
spiritually minded is
life and peace.”

God Is Never Late ~

 

God is never late,
tardy, He is not
all goes by His plan
in the time He allots.

God is never slow,
His timing is perfected
the hour, the minute
He has already selected.

God is never delayed,
His purpose is on track
on His own timetable
not a second will He tack.

God is never slack,
He has time on His rein
He knows the exact moment
when Jesus will come to reign.

God is never late,
He knows how long the span
all will work out in the end
for time is in His hand!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:8

“But, beloved, be not ignorant
of this one thing, that one day
is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years
as one day.”

A Trump Bellowing Out ~

One day out of heaven,
you’ll hear a shout
along with a trump
bellowing out.

A voice you will hear,
of that of a King
signaling eternal peace
I’m here to bring.

The dead will rise up,
from their earthly grave
as they believe Jesus’ life
for their sins He gave.

Those who are yet alive,
will be caught in the air
for, they believe on the cross
Jesus their sins did too bear.

One day all will hear,
a loud trump, a shout . . .
will with Jesus you leave
or will you be left out?

~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

“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.”

Wherefore comfort one another
with these words.”

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Another New Year ~

Soon there will be,
another New Year . . .
twelve more months
will again be here.

I don’t know about you,
but my, how time flies
years seem to pass . . .
like a blink of my eyes.

Speaking about blinking,
I cannot help thinking
will this be the year . . .
I’ll witness that twinkling.

For, I know at any second,
Jesus could come again
and to this all I can say . . .
is Amen and Amen.

So my only resolution,
for the approaching New Year
is to keep my ears open . . .
so the last trump I can hear!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:52

In a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trump:
for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.

I Feel Joy ~

I feel joy,
bubbling up in me
I feel hope
in what I can’t see.

I feel peace,
rising up in me
I feel settled
in what’s to be.

I feel grace,
soaking up in me
I feel sure
in Christ I’m free.

I feel pleasure,
swirling up in me
I feel ready
for eternal glee.

I feel joy,
bubbling up in me
I feel soon . . .
Jesus I will see!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

Ripe For the Picking ~

Oh, Lord I can feel,
it’s almost harvest time
and the fields for reaping
are more than prime.

Oh, Lord I can feel,
the coolness of the day
bringing the Good News
that You are on the way.

I can see the crops,
are ripe for the picking
I can hear the clock
speeding up its ticking.

I can see the falling,
of fruit from the True Vine
I can smell the bitterness
of rancid, rotten wine.

Oh, Lord I can feel,
the fields are all but prime
I sense You can return . . .
just about any time!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 14:15

” And another angel came
out of the temple,
crying with a loud voice
to him that sat on the cloud,
Thrust in thy sickle, and reap:
for the time is come for
thee to reap; for the
harvest of the earth is ripe.”

Without The First Rain ~

Without the first rain,
there can’t be a last harvest
without the Son’s Light
all would be in darkness.

Without the spring showers,
the seed of truth can’t grow
without the fresh crops
Jesus no one would know.

Without the latter rain,
there be nothing to reap
without God’s eternal mercy
over sin, no one would weep.

Without the outpouring,
of the Holy Spirit
without the Word of God
no one for heaven would be fit.

Without the first rain,
the latter rain can’t come
so that Jesus can return
and set up His Kingdom!

~~~~~~~

James 5:7

“Be patient therefore,
brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the husbandman waiteth
for the precious fruit of the earth,
and hath long patience for it,
until he receive the
early and latter rain.”

Waiting ~

Lord, You have given me,
these mighty eagles wings
said they’d give me strength
in the problems life brings.

You said for me to wait,
for Your Son to return
until such time to give
You all of my concern.

You said there would be,
no weariness or fatigue
to wait until the day
the crown of life I’ll receive.

You said I would walk,
without ever fainting
to focus on the future hope
You have for me awaiting.

Lord, You have given me,
these powerful eagle wings
and so I patiently wait . . .
for the newness of all things!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40.31

“But they that wait
upon the Lord shall
renew their strength;
they shall mount up
with wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

Everything New ~

Everything new,
everything perfect
sin no longer
our lives to affect.

Everything peaceful,
everything calm
now that Jesus’ blood
is salvation’s balm.

Everything joyful,
everything painless
in a twinkling we’ll stand
before God blameless.

Everything pristine,
everything ideal
at the trumpet sound
all will be surreal.

Everything perfect.
everything new
when Jesus comes
for me and you!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15.51-52

Behold! I tell you a mystery.
We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed,
in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trumpet.

For the trumpet will sound,
and the dead will be raised
imperishable, and we
shall be changed.”

Closer Everyday ~

As I witness,
the sun slowly set
I feel so blessed
my Savior to have met.

For, its beauty reveals,
the glory I will see
the day Jesus returns
in the clouds for me.

As the sun unfolds,
its nightly display
the hope I’ve found
its splendor relays.

Though it signals,
the end to another day
eternal joy . . .
it brings closer my way.

As I sit here watching,
the setting of the sun
I feel so blessed
to have found the Son!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 24:30

“And then shall appear the sign
of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes
of the earth mourn, and they
shall see the Son of man coming
in the clouds of heaven
with power and great glory.”

Something Out of Nothing ~

something-out-of-nothing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

God created,
something out of nothing
He brought perfect order
to everything.

Then man came along,
and created chaos
now one day with God
there will be a face off.

God is going to judge,
man for his sin
He’ll wage a war against
the evilness within.

Floodwaters will come,
earthquakes and fire
only those who are saved
won’t be in the crossfire.

Then there will be,
a new glorious rebirth
as God ushers in
a new heaven and earth.

God created,
something out of nothing
and someday to the chaos
perfect peace, Jesus will bring!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 65:17

” For, behold,
I create new heavens
and a new earth:
and the former shall not
be remembered,
nor come into mind.”

Can You Imagine ~

Can You Imagine ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Can you imagine,
a world without tears
void of the darkness
that fuels human fears?

Can you imagine,
a world without sorrow
empty of the anguished
heartache of tomorrow?

Can you imagine,
a world without evil
gone the trepidation
from terror’s upheaval?

Can you imagine,
a world without hate
free from animosity
the need to retaliate?

Can you imagine,
a world without fears
can you imagine the day . . .
God wipes away all tears?

In Quiet Hope ~

In Quiet Hope ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

My soul waits for the Lord,
in quiet hope, I wait . . .
for, what else can I do
so for Him, I will wait.

No need to get restless,
caught up in my fears
in quiet hope, I wait . . .
until my Jesus appears.

As problems pile up,
adding to my care
in quiet hope, I wait . . .
as I go to Him in prayer.

At this very moment,
in my soul’s hungry need
in quiet hope, I wait . . .
to His will, I shall heed.

My soul waits for the Lord,
in quiet hope, I wait . . .
I know He’ll come again
so til then, I’ll not faint!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:13-14

“I had fainted, unless I had believed to see
the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall
strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”

Perhaps Today ~

Perhaps Today ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will come
perhaps today I’ll see
my Lord on the cloud
coming down for me.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will call
perhaps today I’ll hear
the sound of His trumpet
telling me He is here.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will show
perhaps today I’ll meet
my Savior up in the air
oh, wouldn’t that be sweet.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will come
perhaps today I’ll be
with Him forever
in blissful eternity!

In The Twinkling Of An Eye ~

In Just A Twinkle Of My Eye ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In the twinkling of an eye,
with my Lord, I’m going to be
upon that glorious trumpet blow
on the clouds He’ll come for me.

My tired, weak fragile body,
will be changed into a new one
in just a twinkling of an eye
my new life will have begun.

No longer will I hurt,
pain won’t have its grip on me
in just a twinkling of an eye
in heaven I will finally be.

My tears of grief and sorrow,
will turn to cries of glee
in just a twinkling of an eye
His glory  will be all I see.

No more will I have to battle,
the burdens of this life
in just a twinkling of an eye
I’ll have victory over strife.

With my Lord, I will be
to this world I’ll bid goodbye
and I’ll dwell in perfect peace
in just a twinkling of an eye!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:52
