From These Things ~

From sinful,
to grateful
from hopeless
to thankful.

From lost,
to found
from doomed
to crowned.

From lifeless,
to forgiven
from hunger
to provision.

From fruitless,
to bearing
from fearful
to daring.

From darkness,
to light
from cowardice
to fight.

From ungodly,
to holiness
from wicked
to righteousness.

From these things,
Jesus took me
so like Him . . .
the closer I’d be!

~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man
be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed
away; behold, all things
are become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17


What I Really Mean ~

When I say I’m born again,
I mean that God has changed me
from the inside out . . .
in ways you might not see.

When I tell you I’ve repented,
I mean to God I have turned back
from my old sinful ways . . .
that kept me off the narrow track.

When I speak to you of God’s mercy,
I’m saying it’s something I don’t deserve
it’s only out of His abundant goodness
that for me He had some on reserve.

When I talk about my faith in Jesus,
I’m telling you it’s all about His grace
for without the Holy Spirit’s power
I would have no strength for this race.

When I say I am a new creature,
what to you I am really saying
Jesus knew that the old one was . . .
worth Him dying for and saving!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.

God Given Peace ~

God gave me peace,
when I had nearly none . . .
He gave it to me
through His beloved Son.

Once I accepted,
Jesus as my Savior
my heart became full
of His grace and favor.

God gave me hope,
when I had mostly nothing . . .
He gave me faith
filled with truthful trusting.

Once I received,
His gift of salvation
I knew right then
I was a new creation.

God gave me peace,
when the old things passed
He gave me hope
with a belief steadfast!

~~~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Now the Lord of peace himself
give you peace always by all means.
The Lord be with you all.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.

The Meaning To Life ~

Life has more meaning,
when in God you believe
it is more enjoyable . . .
when Jesus you receive.

It is more peaceful,
when others you forgive
it is more compatible
when love is what you give.

Life has more to offer,
when God you daily seek
it is more agreeable
when humble and meek.

It is more pleasant,
when you’re being kind
it is more courteous
when peace fills your mind.

Life is just plain better,
when in God you trust
it is just simply easier . . .
when Jesus lives in us!

Embracing The New ~

Embracing the new,
getting rid of the old
is freeing and liberating
makes us for Jesus bold.

It’s saying goodbye,
to former desires
it’s letting the Holy Spirit
ignite in our souls a fire.

Taking off the weight,
of spiritual depression
allows Jesus to make
a lasting impression.

It’s doing away with self,
and letting Jesus in
it’s going out everyday
not falling back into sin.

Doing away with the old,
for what is new . . .
is letting Jesus become
a part of you!

Old Creature Gone ~

Old creature gone,
exchanged for the new
the day Lord, Jesus
we came to follow You.

Old dirty habits,
old thoughts and ways
redeemed for the new
for the rest of our days.

Old bitter resentment,
old tempers and demands
substituted for the new
as we obey Your commands.

Old greedy desires,
old habits and lusts
converted for the new
when we began to trust.

Old creature gone,
exchanged for the new
all because Lord, Jesus
we’re beholden to You!

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in

Old Things Gone ~

Old things gone,
no more desire
for worldly wealth
to acquire.

No more need,
to seek greed out
satisfied now
to do without.

Old things dead,
no more pleasure
worldly practices
no longer treasure.

No more wants,
indulgences filled
to old thoughts
no longer thrilled.

Old things gone,
all things new
self removed . . .
Christ now in you!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation.
The old has passed away;
behold, the new has come.

It’s A Wonderful Life ~

It’s a wonderful life,
when in Jesus you believe
it’s a fantastic experience
when God’s gift you receive.

It’s a life filled with hope,
peace, joy and rest
grace is a wondrous thing
when with it you’re blessed.

It’s a wonderful life,
when you know God’s greatness
favor is a glorious thing
when you accept His goodness.

It’s a life of forgiveness,
sacrifice and redemption
mercy is a magnificent thing
when you seek its perfection.

It’s a wonderful life,
when in Jesus you believe
for God’s love, mercy and grace
are the gifts you’ll receive!

In The Spring Of Life ~

In the Spring of life,
all things become new
for those who Lord  . . .
put their trust in You.

For, the season of Spring,
is a time for cleansing
a time for heavy hearts
to do some purging.

In the Spring of life,
there comes a newness
for those who Lord . . .
soak in all of Your goodness.

For, the season of Spring,
is a time for renewing
a time for weary souls
to receive their healing.

In the Spring of life,
all things become new
for those who Lord . . .
give their heart’s to You!

A New Creature ~

A New Creature ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I am a new creature,
for I am forgiven
ever since my life
to Jesus I have given.

I am now set free,
from my past behaviors
and behind God’s back
are all of my failures.

Any kind of temptation,
I am competent to flee
now that the Holy Spirit
dwells inside of me.

I am not ashamed,
nor am I considered guilty
for Jesus paid the debt
for my every iniquity.

I am a repenter,
I’ve been transformed
ever since the day
to Jesus I conformed!

Something New ~

All Things New ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He made us,
into something new
and we must believe
this to be true.

Lest to doubt,
we will succumb
and our faith . . .
will be humdrum.

He is planning,
a new path for us
and we must always
in Him trust.

Lest to temptation,
we will surely fall
and our faith . . .
will be weak and small.

He is working,
out His perfect plan
and we must believe
to leave it, in His hand.

Lest to fear,
we will give in
and our faith . . .
will start to dim.

He is working,
in You and I
and He will not quit
until the day we die!

A New Identity ~

In Christ Alone ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Once I thought,
myself I knew . . .
but then came Jesus
made all things new.

He took my heart,
made it His own
then my life . . .
He began to hone.

He put into me,
His own likeness
opened my eyes
to all the darkness.

He gave me hope,
when I had none
filled me with peace
when He was done.

Now I am in Him,
He is in me . . .
the True Light
I now can see.

With Jesus I have,
a brand new identity
that will be with me
for all of eternity!

All Things Made New ~

All Things New ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Born again,
all things made new
all because Jesus
died just for you.

A new creature,
He has created
your life for His
He has awaited.

A new beginning,
a clean fresh start
now that Jesus
lives in your heart.

A living hope,
each day to renew
with Jesus everything
is made brand new.

Born again,
from darkness into light
Jesus now fills you . . .
with His holy might!
