Satisfied ~

Today I don’t need,
a feast on my table
for God’s goodness
is my everyday staple.

For, I am content,
sated and satisfied
as God’s lovingkindness
leaves me gratified.

Today I don’t desire,
a big turkey feed
for God’s generosity
is all that I need.

For, I am blessed,
pleased and satisfied
now that in Jesus
I have been sanctified.

Today I don’t need,
to consume or to eat
for, my hunger and thirst
in Jesus are complete!

~~~~~~~~

John 6:35

“And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me shall
never hunger;
and he that believeth on me
shall never thirst.

Rejoicing Always ~

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
when things aren’t going right
it hard to give God thanks . . .
with so many battles to fight.

It’s hard to see God’s hand,
in the middle of the pain
it hard to be grateful
when all your joy is drained.

But we who have Jesus,
living inside of us
know how important it is
in Him to always trust.

For, to always be rejoicing,
takes prayer continually
and then our thanks to God
will come unceasingly.

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
with all that life brings . . .
but, we know it’s God will
to be thankful for all things!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.”

Always Something To Be Thankful For ~

There is always something,
to be thankful for
all you have to do . . .
is be willing to explore.

If you will open up,
your heart and your mind
all kinds of blessings
you will be able to find.

Some are so small,
they don’t get our attention
but, for each of them
God has a good intention.

Some are so obvious,
you don’t need to search far
for everyone can see them
from right where they are.

Whether our blessings
are big or if they are small
we need to be thankful . . .
to God who supplies them all.

Yes, there’s always something,
for us to be thankful for
and we need to be grateful
so God can send us more!

Make a Joyful Noise ~

Come all my friends,
come one and all . . .
let’s gather together
and let our praise fall.

Let’s make a noise,
to God that’s joyful
let’s sing why we are
thankful and hopeful.

Let’s loudly proclaim,
our love for Him
let’s tell why our cups
overflow from the brim

Let’s sing of our salvation,
the Rock of our strength
lets not keep our elation
from others at arms-length.

Come all my friends,
let us all assemble
so to the world . . .
Jesus we may resemble!

A Thankful, Grateful Heart ~

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is appreciative
one that to all Your blessings
is attuned and sensitive.

Let it be a heart,
that sings its daily praise
let it be my heartfelt gratitude
that to You I earnestly raise.

Let me have a heart,
truly thankful for all things
no matter what in my life
You should choose to bring

Let my heart flow with,
the rivers of Your peace
so my appreciation to You
I may continually release.

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is steadily hopeful
let it be the heart of one . . .
who is truly, forever grateful!

One Blessed, Single Plateful ~

On Thanksgiving day this year,
before the turkey starts roasting
my thanks, I will be singing
for the dinner I’ll be hosting.

I will set the dining table,
with the gratitude I feel
before anyone comes
to feast upon the meal.

I will spread the hope,
that I’m feeling inside
before I even serve . . .
the food that God supplied.

I will polish up on all,
the reasons I’m thankful
before I even dish up
one blessed, single plateful.

On Thanksgiving day this year,
before the food I present
I will let everyone know . . .
just why I am so content!

Thankful In Every Season ~

You don’t need a season,
to be thankful . . .
every day of the year
you can be grateful.

You can all year-long,
bless God with your praise
your gratitude to Him
you can daily raise.

It doesn’t have to be,
just on Thanksgiving day
your gratitude to God
you can always display.

You can sing anytime,
to Him your appreciation
it does not have to be . . .
a holiday celebration.

Whether you are rich,
or if you may be poor
for and in everything
let your thanksgivings pour.

You can be thankful,
every day of the year
for your gratefulness . . .
God always wants to hear!

Lord, as I enter into,
the season of Thanksgiving
may I do so without . . .
any qualms or misgivings.

May I be grateful,
for all You’ve given me
especially for the things
I am still yet to see.

May I be satisfied,
with all I have got

those I’ll not be getting.

for all the right reasons!

Grateful Every Day ~

grateful-every-day-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We don’t need a special day,
to show we are thankful
for every day to God . . .
we need to be grateful.

We can come together,
any day of the year
and share the cause behind
our joy and good cheer.

We can give our thanks,
no matter the season
a special holiday
needn’t be our only reason.

We can enter into,
the gates of thanksgiving
anytime, anywhere
without a single misgiving.

For, God doesn’t care,
when or how we show
our thankfulness to Him
He just wants to know!

“Enter into his gates
with thanksgiving,

The Bread, Way, Truth and Life ~

the-bread-way-truth-and-life-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

As we gather,
on Thanksgiving Day
lets not make light
when our thanks we pray.

We need to be,
genuinely grateful
for all things
we must be truly thankful.

We need to express,
our thanksgiving
with praise and joy
sans any misgiving.

We need to thank,
our Father above
for sending His Son
out His pure love.

We need to express,
our joy and elation
for the freedoms
of our salvation.

We need to convey,
to God each day
our thanks for the Bread
the Truth, Life and Way!

Beyond Thanksgiving Day ~

beyond-thanksgiving-day-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Thanksgiving is more,
than food and football
it goes way beyond . . .
turkey on the table.

Thanksgiving isn’t about,
just one meal we share
it goes way further . . .
then a dinner prayer.

Thanksgiving is about,
each day of the year
making sure our praise
God is able to hear.

Thanksgiving isn’t about,
a single day with family
it goes way past . . .
our sated apathy.

Thanksgiving is about,
being thankful for all things
no matter what in this life . . .
to your table that it brings!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication
with thanksgiving

let your requests
be made known unto God.”

Tis The Season For Thankfulness ~

tis-the-season-for-thanksgiving-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

Tis the season . . . .
for inward reflections
a time to share
outward expressions.

A time to be,
for all things thankful
a time to convey to God
just why we’re grateful.

Tis the season . . .
for inner thoughtfulness
a time to thank God
for His kindheartedness.

A time to see,
how much we’re blessed,
a time for our gratitude
to be openly professed.

Tis the season . . .
for thankful contemplation
a time to say Thank You God
whatever our situation!

O, Taste and See ~

o-taste-and-see-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I’ve tasted the goodness,
from God’s banquet table
I’ve feasted on His Word
and now its a daily staple.

I’ve supped on the truth,
with my Lord and Savior
and now His Life and Way
I’ve come to daily savor.

I’ve been to the buffet,
of God’s benevolence
and now I understand
the meaning of excellence.

I’ve dined with my Redeemer,
my healing, Comforter
and now I know who is
my daily bread Provider.

I’m blessed beyond measure,
and I’m loving the fullness
now that I have tasted God
I’m filled with all His goodness!

Thanksgiving Dinner ~

Thanksgiving Dinner ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Every year at this same time,
we sit at our dining tables . . .
feasting upon what has become
Thanksgiving Day staples.

We gobble down the turkey,
mashed potatoes and candy yams
then we sit back and disclaim . . .
I can’t believe how full I am.

But, this year I am not serving,
the traditional Thanksgiving fare
instead a healthy fruit salad . . .
is all I’m planning to share.

I’m going take some gentleness,
stuff it full of God’s love
along side of it will be the peace
that comes only from above.

I’ll pile high on each plate,
some joy and some goodness
right next to them I will place
some faith and some meekness.

I’ll top it off with patience,
and for the piece of resistance
I’ll pray for those whom I serve. . .
to have a lot of temperance!

~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
 joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance:
 against such there is no law.

Thanksgiving Day Prayer 2015 ~

Thanksgiving Day Prayer 2015 ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The world’s full of chaos,
of it, man’s made a mess
nonetheless, I do pray . . .
on it, God will truly bless.

So my Thanksgiving prayer,
this year is going to be . . .
for every soul to let Jesus
from their sins set them free.

Free from all the wickedness,
the hatred and dissension
free from the fits of rage
the discord and faction.

Free from evil spirits,
idolatry and debauchery
free from sexual immorality
impurity and lechery.

Free from self-ambition,
jealousy and covetousness
free from self-indulgence
fornication and drunkenness.

The world’s full of chaos,
wickedness is everywhere . . .
and for the lost souls in it
I’ll say a Thanksgiving prayer!

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:19-21

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest,
which are these; Adultery, fornication,
uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance,
emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings,
and such like: of the which I tell you before,
as I have also told you in time past, that they
which do such things . . .
shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Forget the Turkey ~

For Get the Turkey ~ CHRIStian poetry by deborah ann

Forget about the turkey,
the dressing and the sides
forget about the pumpkin
pecan or chocolate pies.

Instead lift up your voice,
with shouts of joy and praise
to God your loving Father
let your thanksgiving raise.

Forget about the cleaning,
the flowers and table setting
forget about all the stuff . . .
over which you’re sweating.

Instead show the Lord,
your genuine gratitude
give your thanks to Jesus
for His gracious servitude.

Forget about the dinner,
and cooking that big bird . . .
instead let your song of praise
to God,  be forever heard!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 95:1-2

O come, let us sing unto the Lord:
 let us make a joyful noise to the

For He is good
For His glory
To Bless Him

 
We are thankful for . . .

Being partakers of the inheritance of the saints
The grace of God we have though Jesus Christ

His wisdom and might
His wondrous works
All things

Who is to give thanks . . .

All the people

In the morning
At midnight
In prayer
In song
Forever

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
