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
unto him the third time,
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
to bring the lost . . .
to the Son of Man!

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,
heard above the roar
help me to deliver
the unsaved to Your door.

Jesus let me be,
a light in the dark
help me to disclose
sin raw and stark.

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

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

~~~~~~~

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.”

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!

Go ye into all the world,

The Seeds You Sow ~

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!

~~~~~~

Luke 8:8

“And other fell on good ground,
and sprang up, and bare fruit
an hundredfold. And when he

ears to hear, let him hear.”

God’s Saving Light ~

If I could gather,
all the rays of God’s light
I know now blinded eyes
would receive a 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 His power and 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

” For God, who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.”

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!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;
we have turned
every one to
his own way;
and the Lord
hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”

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.”

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!

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.”

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!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 3:7

“So then neither is he that planteth
 any thing, neither he that watereth;
but God that giveth the increase.”

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

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,

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!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”
