An Everlasting Hope ~

My hope is a lively one,
it can not be obliterated
it’s an everlasting hope
it cannot be eliminated.

Though insults fly by me,
from every which way . . .
my hope encourages me
not to care what others say.

My hope is a proven one,
it cannot be canceled
it’s a steadfast hope
it cannot get trampled.

Though daily there is grief,
believing the way I do
my hope gives me peace
no mater what others spew.

My hope is an active one,
it cannot be ostracized
it is a fighting hope . . .
it cannot be victimized.

It is an embolden hope,
though it be protested . . .
my hope is a golden one
for in Jesus it’s invested!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1.3

Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ, which
according to his abundant mercy
hath begotten us again unto a lively
hope by the resurrection of Jesus
Christ from the dead,

1 Peter 1.7

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious
than of gold that perisheth
though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise
and honour and glory at the
appearing of Jesus Christ:

In The Right Direction ~

Sometimes God,
needs to get my attention
so He can reestablish
with Him a connection.

So He sends into my life,
trials and tribulations
to see if I will trust Him
with all their complications.

Sometimes God,
needs to redirect my life
by giving me things
that will cause me strife.

He wants to know,
how deep my faith goes
so that my weaknesses
to me He can expose.

Sometimes God,
has to get my attention
so He can keep me going
in the right direction!

1 Peter 1:6-7

“Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though now for a season,
if need be, ye are in
heaviness through
manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious
than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise
and honour and glory at
the appearing of Jesus Christ:”

On The Path To Perfection ~

on-the-path-to-perfection-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I’m on the path to perfection,
I’ve got a long way to go
but, one day I know I’ll be
to God as good as gold.

I’ve had plenty of struggles,
on the path to perfection
there’s been a lot of battles
against sin and temptation.

I’ve left behind many tears,
on the path to perfection
but, each drop God gathered
and added to His collection.

I’ve had quite a few regrets,
on the path to perfection
for, I didn’t always seek God
for His will and direction.

It’s not been an easy-going,
on the path to perfection
but, it’s the only way I know
that leads to sanctification!

1 Peter 1:6-7

” Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though now for a season,
if need be, ye are in heaviness
through manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious than
of gold that perisheth, though
it be tried with fire, might be
found unto praise and honour
and glory at the appearing
of Jesus Christ:”

Joy in Suffering?

whatjoy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

How could there be joy in suffering,
what good can come from pain?
How can there be rejoicing,
when there’s only loss, and not gain?

How could there be thanksgiving,
what good can come from tribulation?
How can there be gratefulness,
when there’s only deep affliction?

How could there be praise,
what good can come from misery?
How can there be worship,
when there’s no longer liberty?

How could there be gladness,
what good can come from persecution?
How can there be happiness,
when there’s some facing execution?

How could there be joy in suffering,
what good can come from all this pain?
Ah, is it because we believe . . .
one day, Jesus will come to reign?
