Grace Training~

We all need,
grace training
so we can be
more forgiving.

Then like Jesus,
we’ll transform
as acts of love
we perform.

We all need,
to grow in grace
so compassion
we can embrace.

Then like Jesus,
we’ll reflect
as His goodness
we project.

We all need,
to be more kind
we all need . . .
extra grace to find!

~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both
now and for ever. Amen.

Sticky Note From God ~05.09.20~

2 Peter 3:18


Sticky Note to God ~05.09.20~

2 Peter 3:18


Aside From Jesus ~

Aside from Jesus,
I’m totally worthless
without Him all I do
is utterly pointless.

The more I grow in Him,
I see my nothingness
the more I know about Him
I see my hopelessness.

Aside from Jesus,
my life is fruitless
without His Spirit
I’m more than useless.

The more He grows in me,
I see my own weakness
the more He means to me
I see my helplessness.

Aside from Jesus,
I’m totally bankrupt
without His grace . . .
I completely corrupt!

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace, and in the
knowledge of our Lord
and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now

2 Peter 3.18

 


Make Grace Greater ~

Make grace greater,
than your pride
let it become . . .
your earthly guide.

Make humility bigger,
than your ego
let it become . . .
your heart’s credo.

Make courtesy stronger,
than your vanity
let it become . . .
your mind’s canopy.

Make meekness bolder,
than your conceit
let it become . . .
your soul’s heartbeat.

Make grace greater,
let it grow in your heart
then bitterness . . .
won’t even root or start!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:15

Looking diligently lest any man
fail of the grace of God;
lest any root of bitterness
springing up trouble you,
and thereby many be defiled;

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace, and in the
knowledge of our Lord
and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now
and for ever. Amen.

Passionately Insatiable ~

Lord let me not get,
too old to keep learning
keep my eagerness
for knowledge burning.

Let me not become,
too comfortable
thinking I am . . .
oh, so knowledgeable.

Lord, let me continue,
to keep on growing
may I never grow tired
of more of You knowing.

Let me not be,
content in my ways
so I may gain wisdom
for the rest of my days.

Lord let me not get,
too old and lackadaisical
keep my knowledge for You
passionately insatiable!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.
To him be glory
both now and for ever.”
Amen.

God Has A Plan ~

For every trial,
God has a purpose
He has a plan . . .
before they surface.

He sends us tests,
deserving or not
to see how much
grace we have got.

It is up to us,
how we will react
whether our troubles
our faith will impact.

Some choose to grow,
resentful and bitter
some opt to make
their faith in God bigger.

For every trial,
God sends to us . . .
He’ll reveal the purpose
as we increase our trust!

~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.

To him be glory both
now and for ever. Amen.

In The Garden of My Soul ~

In The Garden of My Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In the garden of my soul,
God’s Word I have sown
I’ve tilled in just the truth
so no weeds can be grown.

I water it each day,
with the verses found within
I cultivate each of them
to train me to see my sin.

I nurture and work,
the scriptures I have read
so they will grow in my heart
not lay dormant in my head.

I gather different verses,
and their roots I combine
so grace and knowledge
can begin to intertwine.

In the garden of my soul,
God’s Word I’ve propagated
and each day I make sure
it is properly irrigated!

Growing in God’s Grace ~

~ CHRISTitan poetry by deborahann ~grow-in-grace 2 IBible Verses

It’s a slow thing,
this growing in God’s grace
it’s a minute by minute thing
we all need to embrace.

It’s a process,
a little here, a little there
it takes a lot of practice
to give Jesus our every care.

It’s a development,
finding God’s rest and peace
it’s quite an accomplishment
not to ever quit or cease.

It takes practice,
this learning to be still
it’s not easy waiting
on knowing God’s will.

It takes itty-bitty steps,
to reach that mountain top
it takes a lot of self-denial
lest half way we would stop.

It’s a slow thing,
this growing in God’s grace
but it sure makes it easier . . .
when His love we embrace!

The Root of Grace ~

grow-in-grace-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, may the root of grace,
dig deeper into my soul
may it work its way through
until it takes control.

May it feed upon Your Word,
bring to me awareness
how showing others grace . . .
is all about Your fairness.

May it firmly be established,
so it can bear good fruit
may it increase and grow
until mercy too, takes root.

May it ooze from my heart,
like sap from a tree
just as it did that day . . .
when You died for me.

Lord, may the root of grace,
dig deeper into my life . . .
may it prosper in the good times
and prevail whenever there is strife!

The Valley ~

If God used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, You have me in this valley,
for reason that are unknown . . .
but, I know deep in my heart
I am not down here all alone.

For, I know You are with me,
every step of the way . . .
and I know deep in my soul
there will come a better day.

Lord, I don’t know how long,
in this valley I will be . . .
but, I am prepared to stay
as long as Your here with me.

For, You have always promised,
from me You would never leave
and I know deep in my spirit
these words I now must believe.

Lord, I thank You for this valley,
though it has me feeling low
but, I know I am down here . . .
so my faith in You can grow!

Growing in Grace ~

~ CHRISTitan poetry by deborahann ~grow-in-grace 2 IBible Verses

Each day we need to grow,
in the power of God’s grace. . .
for it is full of mercy
all malice it will erase.

We need to utilize it,
on an hourly basis . . .
it will make us humble
charitable and generous.

It enriches our souls,
empowering us to live . . .
with Godly compassion
enabling us to forgive.

We need to seek it out,
in our daily prayer . . .
for, the grace God gives
is free for us to share.

The wisdom of God’s grace,
each day we need to grow
so our faith in Jesus . . .
others too will want to know!

Grow in Grace ~

Grow In Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Lord, help me to grow in grace,
by being more kind and respectful
help me to be more giving . . .
without being rude or resentful.

Help me to be more pleasing,
let me bring to others pleasure
help me to be less selfish
so my time with them I’ll treasure.

Help me to be a reflection,
of a life living with You near
help me to seek Your will
with godly reverence and fear.

Help me to be more grateful,
thankful to You for all things
help me to grow in grace . . .
no matter what this life brings!

Grow ~

Growing Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Grow in grace today,
plant faith in your heart
let it root itself in love
and more grace it will start.

Grow in wisdom today,
let it dig its way into you
let it branch out in all
that you say and do.

Grow in humility today,
look for it to rise and shine
and your self-righteousness
will be on the decline.

Grow in charity today,
reach out to those in need
let your generosity come alive
and to His mercy you will heed.

Grow in knowledge today,
harvest from the Word
reap from the truth you find
then share all you’ve heard.

Grow in the Lord today,
seek after the one True Vine
take a sip from His cup
and taste the life-giving wine!
