Unashamed and Unafraid ~

Unashamed and unafraid,
tis what I want to be
oh, my sweet Savior
I want to be bold for Thee.

I want to be fearless,
brave and courageous
I want my love for You
to be to all contagious.

Unashamed and unafraid,
to tell the Gospel truth
for You my Lord, I want to be
a dauntless, daring sleuth.

I want to be audacious,
to feel no fear or shame
I want to be bold and daring
whenever I say your name.

Unashamed and unafraid,
Lord, tis all I want to be
my trust and faith in You
is all I want others to see!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 1:16-17

“For I am not ashamed
of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God
unto salvation to every one
that believeth;
to the Jew first,
and also to the Greek.

For therein is the
righteousness of God
revealed from faith to faith:
as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.”

Tweet This ~

I’ve a message,
that I’ll be texting
to all my friends
my faith I’ll be flexing.

I will make it quick,
maybe just tweet it
I know the words
in the criteria will fit.

I will make it fast,
just a few characters
my message will meet
all the parameters.

It won’t take too long,
to tweet or text if off
some will understand it
other’s may just scoff.

It’s really quite simple,
this message I will send
Jesus loves you
and died to be your friend!

lay down his life

Give Me The Wisdom ~

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
to know what to say
so others I may guide
to the righteous way.

Help me to redeem,
the time allotted me
to help blinded eyes
Your saving light to see.

Oh, Lord keep me seasoned,
let me not lose my flavor
so I may lead others
to also find their Savior.

Help me to choose,
the words that will bring
answers to their doubt
You created everything.

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
help me to inform . . .
so others hearts and minds
You can transform!

~~~~~~

Colossians 4:5-6

” Walk in wisdom
toward them
that are without,
redeeming the time.

Let your speech be
always with grace,
seasoned with salt,
that ye may know
how ye ought to answer
every man.”

Just One ~

just-one-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If everyone would bring,
back just one . . .
there would be more sheep
returning to the Son.

If for just one,
everyone would pray
there would be more sheep
on the narrow way.

If for just one,
everyone would go after
there would be more sheep
in heaven’s hereafter.

If for just one,
everyone would pursue
there would be more sheep
returning God to You.

If everyone would bring,
back to Jesus just one . . .
there would less sheep
lost and on the run!

~~~~~

James 5:19-20

“Brethren, if any of you do err
from the truth,and one convert him;

Let him know,that he which
converteth the sinner from
the error of his way shall
save a soul from death, and
shall hide a multitude of sins.”

The Harvest is Now ~

The Harvest is Now ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The harvest like sheep,
is plentiful
the fields like wheat
are bountiful.

The harvest is ripe,
with the spiritually lost
like sheep they need
to be lead to the cross.

The harvest is ready,
to be taken in
so many needing
freedom from sin.

The harvest is now,
today is the day
to guide aimless sheep
to the Life and Way.

The harvest like sheep,
is bountiful
the workers, like reapers
are but, plentiful!

~~~~~~

Matthew 9:35-38

“And Jesus went about all
the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues,
and preaching the gospel
of the kingdom, and healing
every sickness and every
disease among the people.

But when he saw
the multitudes, he was moved
with compassion on them,
because they fainted,
and were scattered abroad,
as sheep having no shepherd.

Then saith he unto his disciples,
The harvest truly is plenteous,
but the labourers are few;

Pray ye therefore the Lord
of the harvest, that he will
send forth labourers into
his harvest.”

Planting A Seed ~

Seed Sowing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deboah ann

I planted a seed,
not so long ago
I prayed and prayed
for it to grow.

I feed it the Good News,
so it would flourish
I encouraged it daily
to keep it nourished.

I tended over it,
with love and grace
in hopes that faith
it would embrace.

I urged it everyday,
to take a firm root
I asked God to help it
to mature and fruit.

I planted a seed,
prayed it would grow
and now my Savior . . .
it has come to know!

~~~~~~~~

Hosea 10:12

“Sow to yourselves in righteousness,
reap in mercy; break up your fallow
ground: for it is time to seek
the Lord, till he come and rain
righteousness upon you.”

This Light of Mine ~

This Wee Light of Mine ~ CHRSITian poetry by deborah ann

In this world,
where darkness shines
it’s so hard to see
this wee light of mine.

It seems so dim,
when it is compared
to all the evilness
that is out there.

In this world,
where darkness shines
it seems to engulf
this teeny light of mine.

It appears so faint,
against sin’s glimmer
next to the wickedness
it looks like a flicker.

But, for You Lord,
I’ll continue to shine
for nothing can douse
this light of mine!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:14

“Ye are the light of the world.
A city that is set on an hill
cannot be hid.”

Save A Life Today ~

Save A Life Today ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

You can be a witness,
for our Lord and Savior
by sharing with others
His grace, love and favor.

Your words can be,
a testament to your belief
they can bring to another
a sense of peace and relief.

Your actions can speak,
volumes, if you will
for they can show others
how to wait and be still.

Your praise can display,
your devotion to the Lord
it may help a lost soul
to the truth, get on board.

Your wounds and scars,
can be a testimony
that He who healed them
is real and not a phony.

You can be a witness,
for your Lord and Savior
you can save a life today . . .
by your words and behavior!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 1:8

“But ye shall receive power,
after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you: and ye
shall be witnesses unto me
both in Jerusalem,
and in all Judaea,
and in Samaria, and unto
the uttermost part of the earth.”

The Gardener’s Call ~

The Gardener used with permission IBible Verses

As the flower slowly fades,
upon its stately stem
it does not do so . . .
on a lark or whim.

For it has reached the end,
of its real beauty
and pales now from
the call of love and duty.

If it were not willing,
to grow healthy and tall
it would not have heard
the Gardener’s faithful call.

Or have ever known,
the gentleness of His hand
when He toiled and tilled
the weedy, rocky land.

If it did not diminish,
and turn so pasty pale
nor naught a drop of water
came from His able well.

It would never have grown,
so lofty high . . .
to hear the lost and unsaved
wanting, needing cry.

If the flower did not whither,
dry up and go to seed
it would have not understood
the Gardener’s truest need.

For within each lovely bloom,
a thousand more will grow
the Gardener’s plot has room
for all the seeds we sow!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“But this I say, He which soweth sparingly
 shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth
bountifully shall reap also bountifully.”

Boldness ~

romans-1_16-not-ashamed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, give me boldness,
to speak out for You
let me not be ashamed
to let Your light shine thru.

Let me be courageous,
when the Gospel I share
let my words be spoken
with respect and care.

Let me be audacious,
when I speak out about sin
let me not hold back
so souls for You, I may win.

Let me be daring,
with the words I choose
let me not be afraid
to share the Good News.

Lord, let me be forthright,
when the truth I tell . . .
so I may show the way
that leads away from hell!

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

Acts 4:13

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John,
and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men,
they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them,
that they had been with Jesus.”

Sowing Seeds of Grace ~

green-plant-budding free photo

Sow the seeds of grace,
scattered them in the field
let the wind carry them
then watch for the yield.

For, the wind will take them,
to places far and wide
pray as you release them
the Spirit will lead and guide.

Sow the seeds of grace,
out of faith and trust
be not too concerned
if they fly with the gust.

For, as the breeze carries,
these tiny seeds of grace
they will find there is . . .
plenty of open space.

Sow the seeds of grace,
let the wind carry them away
for, you don’t know the heart
they may root in ~ someday!

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

Ecclesiastes 11:6

“In the morning sow thy seed,
and in the evening withhold not thine hand:
 for thou knowest not whether shall prosper,
either this or that,
or whether they both shall be alike good.”

Let Me Not Tire ~

Even When ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah annJesus is our Good Shepherd IBible Verses

Lord, let me not tire,
or get too weary to do
the good works  . . .
that bring other’s to You.

Help me to be strong,
while sowing trust’s seeds
let not my faith get mixed
with the tares and weeds.

Lord, let me not faint,
in the heat of the day
help me to be strong
so hearts, I may sway.

Help me to always keep,
my eyes on the goal
so I may harvest for You
every wandering soul.

Lord, let me not tire,
while I wait to reap . . .
let me not ever get weary
of saving Your lost sheep!

And let us not be weary

Unchain Me Lord ~

Unchain Me Lord ~ CHIRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo credit Creation Swap

Lord, unchain my arms,
free them to stretch out
in love and peace
let them reach all about.

Lord, unchain my hands,
free them to share and give
hope and encouragement
to all whom You forgive.

Lord, unchain my legs,
free them to move around
so I may shine Your light
on those who are cast down.

Lord, unchain my feet,
free them to follow You
lead and direct them
in all things that I do.

Unchain my mind,
free it to drop everything
to share the joy one day
I know You will bring.

Unchain my heart,
free it to soar high above
so I may tell everyone
about Your perfect love.

Unchain my soul,
from worldly possessions
free me to unchain those
under Satan’s oppression!

A Soul Go-Getter ~

Go unto all the World by Junny Cruz free photo #16173

Knowing God loves me,
how can you top that?
He always has out for me
His, welcome mat.

Invites me every day,
to fellowship with Him
to worship and adore
with praises and hymns.

Knowing God loves me,
is so very surreal . . .
how to a sinner like me
He made Himself real.

Saved by His mercy,
forgiven with grace
once His Son, Jesus
my heart did embrace.

Knowing God loves me,
it doesn’t get any better
tis why I’ll always be . . .
for Him, a soul go-getter!

New year, new days
hours, minutes too
given to us ~ Lord . . .

every second counts

Who Can We Sway ~

LetYourLightShine ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Who can be saved,
who can find the way
to the truth . . .
who’s heart can we sway?

The poor, the needy,
the contrite in spirit
the criminal, the crook
the morally illicit.

The heartbroken, the sick,
the lonely and heavy-laden
the prodigal, the wanderer
the weak and the shaken.

The meek, the lowly,
the forsaken desperate
the oppressed, the hopeless
the impossible degenerate.

The remorseful, the sad,
the penitent and regretful
to these and many more
we need not be neglectful!

Soul Reachers ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Alberta Harvest Creation Swap ~

You don’t need a megaphone,
to spread the Good News . . .
you don’t need a soap box
for others to hear, God’s views.

You don’t need to be a scholar,
or go to theology school
you don’t need a church class room
to teach the Golden Rule.

You don’t need to have a billboard,
or stand on the street corner
you don’t need a microphone
to be an end-time warner.

You don’t need a million dollars,
or a mega church building
you don’t have to spend a cent
to tell about the Kingdom coming.

Everyone can be a witness,
you don’t have to be a preacher
right where you are, you can be . . .
for Jesus, a soul reacher!

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

John 4:35

“Say not ye, There are yet four months,
and then cometh harvest? behold,
I say unto you, Lift up your eyes,
and look on the fields;
for they are white already to harvest.”

It’s Always Harvest Time ~

The Harvest used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Not just at harvest time,
do we need to have a reason
we can plant seeds of hope
in and out, of every season.

We can reap souls to Jesus,
no matter the time of year
it doesn’t have to be Autumn
harvest time, is always here.

Seeds of faith can be planted,
into the hearts of everyone
whether under snowy covers
or the warm blanket of the sun.

We can gather in the lost,
bring back a wandering soul
it doesn’t have to be Fall
for the harvest, God controls.

It’s always harvest time,
we don’t need to have a reason
we can sow seeds of eternal hope
in and out, of every season!

~~~~~~~

Luke 10:2

“Therefore said he unto them,
The harvest truly is great,
but the labourers are few:
pray ye therefore the Lord
of the harvest, that he would
send forth labourers into his harvest.”

Lost Sheep ~

lamb-of-god free photo
One night the Lord spoke to me,
while I was half asleep
He told me I must go
and find His lost sheep.

I told Him I was busy,
tending to the ones of my own
they were not quite ready
to leave my nest and home.

He said it didn’t matter,
I didn’t need to travel far
for they lived closed to me
I didn’t even need my car.

They were wandering,
up and down my own street
I just needed to go outside
so with them I could meet.

When I got up that morning,
I knew what I had to do
and that is why my neighbor
I came looking,  just for you!

Holy Might ~

Light of the World ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Verses

Lord, You’ve opened my eyes,
to the darkness of mankind
now let it be Your holy light
flooding my heart and mind.

Let me turn away from,
that which cause’s You offense
let me not be like those who
straddle compromise’s fence.

Let me be bold in the battle,
steadfast in my daily fight
let me be for You a soldier
full of Your holy might.

Though mankind may scoff,
and turn away from me
let it be Your love . . .
mercy and grace they see!

A Special Gift ~

we-belong-to-one-another_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each of us has a purpose,
we just need to find it
each has a talent to apply
so together we can fit.

Each of us has a measure,
of faith to utilize
each has a job to do
if our part we’d realize.

Each of us has a role,
a service to perform
each has a function
whether a leg or an arm.

Each of us has a portion,
of grace for us to use
each has a dose of love
that we need to infuse.

Each of us has a duty,
to serve God in some way
each of us has a special gift
everyone a role to play!

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

Romans 12:5-6

“So we, being many, are one body in Christ,

A Living Sacrifice ~

wearelight used with permission IBible Verses
Father, I give unto You,
this body You gave to me
my heart, my mind, my soul
so, I can learn to be . . .

A holy, living sacrifice,
to heed to Your good will
an open, willing vessel
to offer You my skill.

A light unto the world,
to shine in the darkness
a tiny grain of salt
to rid it of its harshness.

A voice in the wilderness,
to those who are lost
a witness to salvation
bringing glory to the cross.

A tiny mustard seed,
to spread the Gospel Word
a branch on the True Vine
to feed Your hungry herd.

Father, grant me Your mercies,
I need each and every one
if I am to be of Your service
and lead others to Your Son!

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

Romans 12:1
King James Version

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
