A Heart Forgiving ~

A forgiving heart,
we must all acquire
so our resentments
on us don’t backfire.

For if we fail to do,
as Jesus did for us
bitterness our hearts
will slowly encrust.

A heart merciful,
we need to nourish
in God’s Word
for it to flourish.

For if our hearts try,
to forgive on their own
any malice left in it
will turn it into stone.

A heart forgiving,
speaks of no one evil
for it knows words can be
viciously lethal!

Ephesians 4:31

“Let all bitterness,
and wrath, and anger,
and clamour,
and evil speaking,
be put away from you,
with all malice:”

Be Not Angry ~

Be not angry,
don’t be resentful
let your attitude reflect
all for which you’re grateful.

Be not bitter,
don’t be contentious
let your words chosen
bring to Jesus awareness.

Be not wrathful,
don’t try to get even
let your posture resemble
the reason you’re forgiven.

Be not ill-tempered,
don’t fly off in a rage
let your Bible become
your behavior gauge.

Be not angry,
don’t into sin descend
lest when the sun rises
wrath will be your only friend!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:26

“Be ye angry, and sin not:
let not the sun go down
upon your wrath:”

The Root of Bitterness ~

The Root of Bitterness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The root of bitterness,
digs deep into our soul
fighting so ever hard
to take complete control.

It’s entirely entrenched,
in resentment and regret
holds tightly to our heart
so the past we’ll not forget.

It puts a choke hold on,
the thoughts in our mind
in the hopes God’s peace
we won’t be able to find.

It establishes itself,
before we even know
until on the outside
our anger starts to show.

The only way to kill,
the root of bitterness
is to apply to it . . .
God’s love and forgiveness!

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger,
and clamour, and evil speaking,
be put away from you, with all malice:”

Sin City ~

Sin CIty ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus came not to condemn,
but to save us from our sin
to free us from the bondage
of the lusts that live within.

But, the flesh fights the spirit,
and sin often comes into our life
bringing the desires of this world
yet, leaving us with inner strife.

The works of the flesh are clear,
they are written in the Bible . . .
many of them are so difficult
for us to tame or even bridle.

But we’ve got to stay away from,
sexual immorality of any kind
jealousy, envy and indignation
must not fill the heart or mind.

We mustn’t bow to other gods,
or conjure up an evil host
and with drinking and partying
we’re no longer to be engrossed.

We must put away contention,
our anger and our wrath
and all of our selfish ambitions
we must send packing down the path.

The sins of the flesh are written,
for every eye to see . . .
and we must repent of them
or in sin city we’ll always be.

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:19-21
King James Version

“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.”

A Chip On the Shoulder ~

God Looks At the Heart

Some people have a chip,
it’s not just on their shoulder
it’s embedded so deep within
you can actually see it smolder.

They usually are burning mad,
seething with smoke and steam
and their poisonous fumes
are deadly when they scream.

They carry around a grudge,
about something from their past
like a time bomb about to go off
you can sense their deadly blast.

They rant and they rave,
about how everything’s unfair
and they’ll blame anyone
for the misery of their despair.

Some people have a chip,
their venom they like to spew
but, God doesn’t want it to become
something embedded in you!

Psalm 37:8
King James Version

“Cease from anger, and forsake wrath:
fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.”

What is This Unruly Thing ~

What is this wild thing,
that my mouth has inside
what causes it to lash about
in its smugness and its pride?

How can it sing praises to God,
then chant ~ its curses to man
what is this wild thing . . .
that says whatever it thinks it can?

What causes it to be so untamed,
without a bridle or a rein
what can I do to control this thing
that has its own heart and brain?

Why does it speak such evil,
and at times act out so bad
what is this wild thing . . .
that gets so angry and mad?

Who can restrain this unruly thing,
that is filled with poison and fire
who can tame this beastly thing
that’s filled with worldly desire?

What is this unruly thing,
that my mouth has inside
what causes it to lash about . .  .
other than my own selfish pride!

~~~~~~~~~

James 3:8
King James Version

“But the tongue
can no man tame;
it is an
unruly evil,
full of deadly poison.”

The Pill of Bitterness ~

The Pill of Bitterness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Bitterness is a caustic pill,
that at times we all swallow
causing a pool of self-pity
where misery loves to wallow.

At first the acid taste,
doesn’t bother us too much
for we feel justified in our pain
and to our anger we still clutch.

As we take our daily dose,
sweet revenge turns a little tart
but we don’t seem to notice
the spite budding in our heart.

We take our correct measure,
each morning when we awake
for we are not willing to forgive
and aren’t wanting to forsake.

The remedy for bitterness,
can’t be found in any pill . . .
but you can find a cure for it
when forgiveness you instill!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:31
King James Version

” Let all bitterness,
wrath, anger, clamor, and

evil speaking be
put away from you,
with all

malice. “
