Unto God ~

Unto God,
we’re set apart
each of us
to do our part.

Some be a sower,
others to water
some are reapers . . .
and harvest spotters.

Unto God,
we are to gather
sheep for His fold
wherever scattered.

Some to go out,
some to stay home
but all looking to return
those on the roam.

Unto God,
we’re set apart
so in the harvest
we can all take part!

Psalm 4:3

But know that the Lord hath
set apart him that is godly
for himself:

Born To Witness ~

Born to scatter,
seeds to sow
born to spread
harvest and grow.

Born to disperse,
the Good News
born to follow
in Jesus’ shoes.

Born to light up,
worldly darkness
born to soften
hearts of hardness.

Born to witness,
to water and feed
born to share
why God others need.

Born to broadcast,
water, feed and sow
born so others
salvation may know!

Matthew 13:23

But he that received seed into
the good ground is he that heareth
the word, and understandeth it;
which also beareth fruit,
and bringeth forth,
some an hundredfold,
some sixty, some thirty.

Christ Preached ~

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more sinners  . . .
they could reach.

If Jesus’ message,
from pulpits they’d tell
less unsaved . . .
would go to hell.

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more lost sheep . . .
they could teach.

If the moral law,
they were to read
less wanderers . . .
they would breed.

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more unbelievers . . .
may heed their speech!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 4:2

Preach the word;
be instant in season,
out of season; reprove,
rebuke, exhort with all
long suffering and doctrine.

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

His Light Bearers ~

Bible preachers, mercy teachers,
sharing with all the Good News
power keepers, soul reapers
doing our best to fill His shoes.

Love producers, peace makers,
helping those who are in need
trust imparters, faith informers
looking for His lost sheep to feed.

Hope distributors, calm givers,
paving the way with His light
God seekers, Jesus searchers
living the good and faithful fight.

Sin stoppers, temptation busters,
leading others from the gate of hell
truth tellers, one day heaven dwellers
with the greatest love story to tell.

Light bearers, problem sharers,
coming together in healing prayer
Bible holders, His soldiers
confessing Jesus because we dare!

Philippians 2:15

“That ye may be blameless
and harmless, the

without rebuke, in the midst of

a crooked and perverse nation,

ye shine as lights

An Assignment From God~

When God gives you,
an earthly assignment
make sure it is on Him
you remain reliant.

For without His power,
you will be too frail . . .
but, with it flowing in you
your mission will not fail.

When God gives you,
duties to perform
make sure you cleave
onto His mighty arm.

For without His support,
you wont be up to the tasks
but with it you will be able
to do all that He asks.

When God sends you,
out on an assignment
make sure your heart . . .
and His are in alignment!

~~~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 13:4

Ye shall walk after the Lord your God,
and fear him, and keep his commandments,
and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him,

Walking Worthy ~

Walking worthy,
is our godly calling
into sin we cannot
keep on falling.

We need to toe the line,
one step at a time
we must keep ourselves
in God’s Word prime.

Walking worthy,
to God is pleasing
our knowledge of Him
must keep increasing.

We must be prepared,
to give an answer
why our faith in Jesus
is our firm anchor.

Walking worthy,
good fruit will bear
and the hope we have
we will want to share!

~~~~~

Colossians 1:10

That ye might walk worthy
of the Lord unto all pleasing,
being fruitful in
every good work,
and increasing in
the knowledge of God;

The Spiritually Poor ~

The ungodly,
are spiritually poor
the lack the faith
to open the Door.

They have not any,
true understanding
the Truth to them
is not damning.

The ungodly,
have blinded eyes
the can’t see
through satan’s lies.

They’ve no wisdom,
of the Light
for the darkness
stole their sight.

The ungodly,
live in poverty
the Life to them
is a mockery.

The Way to them,
can’t make them worldly rich
and therein lies . . .
the real point and glitch!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them

Because thou sayest,
I am rich, and increased
with goods, and have need
of nothing; and knowest not

The Spirit-Led Heart ~

A Spirit-led heart,
lives in each of us
teaching us how
in God to trust.

It shows us how,
we are to live
so hope to the lost
by faith we can give.

A Spirit-led life,
leads us to know
the way to Jesus
we need to show.

It encourages us,
to be a witness
for Jesus’ grace
and forgiveness.

A Spirit-led soul,
is bold and daring
the Good News . . .
it can’t help sharing!

Whatever The Cost ~

Whatever You want Lord,
whatever the cost to me . . .
wherever it is You want
for me to go and be.

That’s where I’ll travel,
that’s the road I’ll take
for You all I possess
I willingly forsake.

Whenever You need me Lord,
wherever the place
whatever time You call me
to sow seeds of grace.

That is when I will leave,
that is when I’ll depart
for You in the harvest
I will gladly take part.

Whenever You want Lord,
whatever the cost . . .
for You I will go
and find those who are lost!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:8

Yea doubtless,
and I count all things
but loss for the excellency
of the knowledge of Christ
Jesus my Lord: for whom
I have suffered the loss
of all things, and do count
them but dung,
that I may win Christ.”

Silent People ~

Silent people,
are all around
you may see them
but they make no sound.

For they are in,
an emotional prison
oh, how they need
someone to just listen.

Silent sufferers,
need to be heard
but they say not
one single word.

We need to be,
to them more aware
and open our ears
to hearing their care.

Silent, suffering people,
everywhere we go
oh, how about Jesus . . .
we need to let them know!

We Better Know ~

 

If we’re to follow the Way,
the Truth we better know
and then the life of Jesus
in our own will begin to show.

If we’re to be His light,
the darkness we better hate
so we can guide others
straight to the narrow gate.

If we’re to have trust,
the Word of God we better read
so more of His lost sheep
back to their Shepherd we can lead.

If we’re to have hope and joy,
the world we better not be in
so more of the unsaved
can be turned from their sin.

If we’re to follow the Truth,
we better know the Way
for we never know . . .
whose life we may sway!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing

Sheep Needing Feeding ~

The harvest is getting closer,
so many sheep need feeding
it’s time to go into the field
for so many are needing.

Needing to know God,
His mercy and favor
needing to find hope
the grace of a Savior.

Needing to be set free,
from satan’s deceit
needing the Gospel truth
about the judgment seat.

Needing the blood of Christ,
the Truth, Way and Life
needing to find freedom
from their sinful strife.

Harvest time is coming,
the sheep still need feeding
and it’s up to you and I . . .
to fulfill Jesus’ heeding!

~~~~~~~~

John 21.17

“He saith unto him the third time,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?
Peter was grieved because he said

Lovest thou me?
And he said unto him, Lord,
thou knowest all things;
thou knowest that I love thee.
Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”

God Will Use You ~

God will use you,
to testify for Him
by causing your joy
to fill to the brim.

Then your faith,
will spill right over
bringing to Him
others much closer.

God will employ you,
to do His business
by causing your hope
to be a witness.

Then your trust,
in Jesus will flow
and others the Way
you will show.

God will use you,
any way He can

A Faithful Servant ~

Jesus wants you to be,
a faithful servant
He wants you to have
a love for Him fervent.

He will not force you,
you must come willingly
following after Him
is to be done voluntarily.

Jesus wants you to be,
separated unto Him
a decision that is more
than just a passing whim.

He wants you to go out,
and be for Him a witness
He wants you to help Him
with His Father’s business.

Jesus want you to be,
a willing bondslave . . .
He wants you to share
how souls He can save!

Crumbs ~

Crumbs,
morsels of hope
for us to spread
all over the globe.

Crumbs,
little bits of peace
for us to scatter
and daily release.

Crumbs,
scrapes of light
for us to sow
to give new sight.

Crumbs,
shreds of what we believe
so the Good News
others can receive.

Crumbs,
put them all together
oh what a great harvest
we could truly gather!

Out On The Streets ~

Church isn’t just a place,
for us to gather and meet
nor is it the only roof
for the unsaved to greet.

For outside its walls,
is a world that’s awaiting
and the Kingdom of God . .
we need to be proclaiming.

Church isn’t just a place,
where you go once a week
nor is it the only roof
for the lost to find and seek.

For outside its doors,
are people needing to know
and the Life, Truth and Way
we need to live and show.

Church isn’t just a place,
for us to gather and meet
the real church of Jesus . . .
is out there on the street!

A Light For Jesus ~

Jesus let me be,
a light for You
help me to expose
the evil people do.

Let me be a voice,
to those who are lost
help me to bring them
to the foot of the cross.

Jesus let me be,
a light of Your grace
help me to help those
still running in the race.

Let me be an example,
of hope, love and peace
help me to help them
the finish line to reach.

Jesus let me be,
a light just for You
help me to debunk . . .
today’s opposing view!

Mission Possible ~

Your mission today,
if you should so agree
is to share the Good News
and tell others about Me.

Your subject today,
could be anyone
who doesn’t know
what for them I’ve done.

Your mission today,
if you should decide
is to let your light shine
on the reason I died.

Your actions today,
might just save a life
and bring someone peace
instead of eternal strife.

Your mission today,
is not impossible
for with Me . . .
all things are possible!

May the seeds you sow,
grow and multiply
may hope to all
they daily supply.

May they be rich,
in truth and mercy
watered with love
to quench the thirsty.

May they take root,
and find nourishment
so they can be seeds
also of encouragement.

May they grow in faith,
to sin, no longer bound
so they too can spread
the Good News around.

May the seeds you sow,
lay not dormant or inactive
but, multiply and grow . . .
into seeds Jesus attractive!

God’s Saving Light ~

If I could gather,
all the rays of God’s light
every blinded eyes . . .
would receive new sight.

For within each beam,
the blinded eye would see
how the grace of Jesus
came to set them free.

If I could reap,
every ounce of God’s light
everyone would be full
of the power of His might.

For within each burst,
His love would crystallize
and His mercy for them
they would personalize.

If I could gather,
each beam and every ray
I’d forever shine God’s glory
on the Truth and the Way!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:6

So Many Needs ~

So many needs,
so many cares
causing His sheep
so much despair.

When will they seek,
when will they come
to the One who will
bear every one?

So many problems,
so many concerns
causing His sheep
thoughts to churn.

When will they know,
when will they find
Jesus is waiting
to comfort their mind?

So many doubts,
so many questions
causing His sheep
bouts of depression.

When will they see,
when will they hear
Jesus is wanting
to calm their fear?

So many defeated,
so many gone astray
so many we can lead . . .
back to Jesus today!

Bearing Good Fruits ~

Faith that is voiced,
faith that is shared
is a faith that knows
good fruit it’s to bear.

Faith that is productive,
faith that is fruitful
is a faith God makes
for His kingdom useful.

Faith that is spoken,
faith that is conveyed
is a faith that God needs
so hearts can be swayed.

Faith that is ministering,
faith that is life-saving
is a faith in Jesus
worthy of our embracing.

Faith that is hidden,
faith that we don’t share
is a faith in God . . . .
leading others no where!

James 2:17

“Even so faith,
if it hath not works,
is dead, being alone.”

Matthew 7:16-20

“Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles?

Even so every good tree
bringeth forth good fruit;
but a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit.

A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit,
neither can a corrupt tree
bring forth good fruit.

Every tree that bringeth
not forth good fruit
is hewn down, and cast
into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits
ye shall know them.”

brave and courageous
I want my love for You

Unashamed and unafraid,

I want to be audacious,

my trust and faith in You

as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.”

answers to their doubt
You created everything.

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,

how their hearts and minds
You can change and transform!

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!

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
back 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!

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!

Save A Life Today ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

You can be a witness,
for our Lord and Savior

His grace, love and favor.

Your words can be,
a testament to your belief

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

to the truth, get on board.

Your wounds and scars,

that He who healed them
is real and not a phony.

You can be a witness,

Sowers of the Word ~

Sowers of The Word ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some scatter the seed,
some plough the land
some work on their knees
some toil as they stand.

Some stay at home,
some go abroad
but all are sowing . . .
the Word of God.

Some sow in the dark,
some sow in the light
some sow in the morning
some sow in the night.

Some plant the fields,
some water the earth
but, all are awaiting . . .
a new spiritual birth.

Some seeds stick,
some go by the wayside
some seeds wither
some stay by His side.

Some scatter the seed,
some plant the row
but it is God . . .
who makes the seed grow!

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!

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!

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 take root in one day!

~~~~~~~~~

hope and encouragement
to all whom You forgive.

Lord, unchain my legs,
free them to move around

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,

about Your perfect love.

Unchain my soul,

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!

Who Can We Sway ~

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

You don’t need a million dollars,
or a church’s mega 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!

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!

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!

let me not be like those who
straddle compromise’s fence.

Let me be bold in the battle,

Though mankind may scoff,
and turn away from me
let it be Your love . . .

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!

Teach The Little Children ~

Teach The Little Children ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Teach the little children,
while they are still young
to give thanks to the Lord
in every song that is sung.

Teach them to pray,
for the Holy Spirit’s filling
tell them that it is more
than just a onetime feeling.

Teach them to read and study,
how God would have them go
let them know in His Word
the way He will always show.

Teach them to understand,
for them, God has a plan
let them know it’s not the same
as the world has for man.

Teach them to respect,
themselves and others too
remind them God is looking
at what they say and do.

Teach them to set their sights,
on their heavenly treasures
not the ones here on earth
reeking of worldly pleasures.

Teach them to love God,
with all their heart and soul
let them know Jesus died
so they’d be complete and whole.

Teach them not just on Sundays,
but each and everyday . . .
just how narrow is the gate
so their tender hearts won’t stray.

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!

the fight today is still the same
just a different time in space
with a new and modern name.

Speak the truth do not deny,
the war that goes on and on
from generation to generation
or else the conflict won’t be won.

Rebellion is the ammunition,
pride and greed the smoking gun
tis the same war against the Lord
as when the world first begun.

Lead the way, light the path,
guide the youth before they turn

lest in hell ~ they shall burn!

I am Not Ashamed ~

I am Not Ashamed ~ CHRISTian Poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I am not ashamed,
of the hope that lives in me
I wear my faith openly
for all the world to see.

You asked me to be the light,
to shine Your Word upon my path
so, I share Your truth knowing
at me they’ll scorn and laugh.

I am not intimidated,
by the words and thoughts of man
instead, I rejoice in the knowledge
You will finish what You began.

You asked me to be the salt,
to spread Your favor on the earth
so, I tell the story on my way
of their sin, Your life, new birth.

I am not afraid,
or concerned what man may do
for I know that I am Yours
and they can’t take me from You.

You asked me to follow You,
in my every act and deed
I do so willingly because I know
You will help me as I need.

I am not beaten,
although man may think he’s won
for, I’ve seen the crown of victory
upon my Lord, the Christ, Your Son.

You asked me to be faithful,
my trust in You remains
I know You will walk with me
on the narrowest of these plains.

Lord, I am not ashamed,
despite how man wants me to feel
the Good News is my life . . .
and Your love I must reveal!

~~~~~~

Mark 8:38

spread the Gospel tract
then water it with trust
and others lives it will impact.

Plant a Word today,
release the plan of peace
then sprinkle it with hope
and God’s power it will release.

Plant a Word today,
share the fruit of Christ’s love
then watch it grow up
giving praise to God above.

but with it you may harvest
all someone’s soul will ever need!

looking for His lost sheep to feed.

Salt shakers, ice breakers,
paving the way with His saving light
God seekers, Jesus searchers
exposing the good and faithful fight.

Sin stoppers, temptation busters,
keeping those from the pit of hell
favor dealers, heaven takers
with salvation’s love story to tell.

Light bearers, problem sharers,
coming together in healing prayer
truth holders, His soldiers
confessing Jesus, because we dare!

I know that you’d prefer

that you don’t want to hear

But I cannot ever stop,
confessing what I believe
and it is my honest prayer
one day Jesus you’ll receive.

For, to me it’s a matter,
of eternal life and death
so I will confess my faith
unashamed til my dying breath!

looking to gather

How Beautiful ~

What Causes Our Feet To Stumle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

How beautiful are the feet,
that travel across our nation
who share the Good News
about God and His creation.

How faithful are the lives,
that journey into the streets
who bring the gift of Jesus
to the sinners they meet.

How gracious are the ones,
who leave their own home
so they can bring back to God
His sheep on the roam.

How loyal are the steps of those,
that go out into the world
to spread salvation’s story
so God’s peace can be unfurled.

How beautiful are the feet,
who enter the faithful fight
to proclaim the Gospel Truth
and spread the Way and Light!

Worth the Risk ? ? ?

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

Would I preach the Word,

would I be so willing

Would I speak the Truth,

would I be so bold
if I knew, I’d be stilled?

Would I shine the Light,
if I knew, I’d be rejected
would I be so confident
if I knew, I’d be dejected?

Would I proclaim the Way,
if I knew, I’d be refused
would I be so convinced
if I knew, I’d be abused?

Is it worth the risk,
for me to say a word . . .
is it worth my life to share
the Good News I’ve heard?

Soul Harvest ~

Soul Harvest ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today I’m feeling burdened,
I am feeling a sense of grief
and Jesus is the only one
who can give me some relief.

I am sad and I am troubled,
I am struggling hard to cope
because all I want to do . . .
is to bring about some hope.

I want to turn a soul to God,
help them to find His peace
I want them to know His love
will never end or cease.

I want to share about my Savior,
how He died for their sins
I want them to know His blood
washes them clean from within.

I want to help the lost one,
to find their way back home
I want to gather up the sheep
who are out on the roam.

I want to lead them back to Jesus,
where He is waiting for their return
I want them to repent of their sins
so in hell they won’t burn.

Today I’m feeling burdened,
I am feeling a sense of grief
only harvesting souls for Jesus
will bring my heart relief!
