Called~

Called out of the dark,
into His Light
called out of blindness
into new sight.

Called out of sin,
into holy living
called out of selfishness
into thanksgiving.

Called out of wanting,
into being satisfied
called out of despair
into being gloried.

Called out of the world,
into everlasting life
called out of fear and doubt
into giving Jesus our strife.

Called out of trepidation,
into hope and peace
called out of uselessness
into being God’s mouthpiece.

Called out of the darkness,
into His marvelous Light
called out of weakness
into His power and might!

1 Peter 2:9

” But ye are a chosen generation,
a royal priesthood,
an holy nation,
a peculiar people;
that ye should shew forth
the praises of him who
hath called you out
of darkness
into his marvellous light;”

Chosen By God ~

Chosen By God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Chosen by God,
hand-picked for the Vine
once broken vessels
now flow with New Wine.

Royalty are we now,
heirs of God’s loving grace
receivers of His mercy
our own cross we embrace.

Messengers of peace,
deliverers of Good News
now that we have found
our hope and refuge.

With praise for our Savior,
to the world we seem odd
as we worship and thank
the One and Only True God.

Out of the dark we came,
into God’s wondrous light
no longer powerless . . .
now filled with His Holy might!

shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of

As A Child of God ~

Children of God used with permission Doorpost Verses on facebook

As a child of God,
you are acceptable
never will you be
to Him, dispensable.

As one of His own,
you truly matter
even if you once
were a God hater.

As a child of God,
you are valuable
never will you be
to Him, replaceable.

As one of His own,
you are so special
even if you were
a hell-raising rebel.

As a child of God,
you are a treasure
His love for you
is without measure.

As one of His own,
you are royalty
even with all your
failure and frailty.

As a child of God,
you are forgivable
for, Jesus died . . .
to make it possible!

Chosen ~

you-are-chosen-and-loved used with permission IBibel Verses

I chose you,
hand picked you from My vine
I always planned for you
to be a follower of mine.

I chose you,
I knew you’d bear much fruit
I always knew that for Me
you’d be a faithful shoot.

I chose you,
guided you with My hand
I always perceived you’d take
for Me a loving, peaceful stand.

I chose you,
I knew I could count on you
I always knew that you’d do
just what I asked you to.

I chose you,
My father gave you to Me
He knew through the darkness
My light you would see!
