Psalm 119:105


The Light and Salt ~

If we’re to be the light,
where is our shine . . .
if we’re to expose evil
then where is our spine?

If we know with God,
all things are possible
then why aren’t we sharing
every sin is washable?

If we’re to be the salt,
then where is our grit . . .
if we’re to help save others
why are they still in the pit?

If we know Jesus,
is the Truth, Life and Way
then why are these words
so hard for us to say?

If we’re to be the light,
then let’s light up and glow
if we’re to be the salt . . .
then let us ~ let it flow!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:14

Ye are the light of the world.
A city that is set on an hill
cannot be hid.

Matthew 5:13

Ye are the salt of the earth:
but if the salt have lost his
savour, wherewith shall it
be salted? it is thenceforth
good for nothing, but to be
cast out, and to be trodden
under foot of men.

A Holy Fight ~

If we’re to be,
for Jesus a light
we must be ready
evil to fight.

For the darkness hates,
all that is right
and will stop at nothing
to douse our light.

If we’re to be,
for Jesus the salt
we must be prepared
for the world’s assault.

For the darkness hates,
all that is sound
and will do anything
to hold its ground.

If we’re to be for Jesus,
the salt and the light . . .
then we must be prepared
for a holy fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.

Sticky Note to God ~05.25.18


Before Your Lamp Fades ~

When your lamp begins to dull,
before it grows cold and dim
look for God in the darkness
and reignite, your trust in Him.

When your lamp looses its luster,
before it fades into the night
look for God in the shadows
and put your faith, back in His light.

When your lamp starts to flicker,
before it goes completely out
look for God in the flutter
and surrender to Him, all your doubt.

When your lamp is running low,
before it goes bone-dry
look for God in the flickering
and He will draw you, to Him nigh.

When your lamp barely shines,
before it loses its brilliance
look for God in the last glimmers
and rekindle for Him, your resilience!

~~~~~~~~

2 Samuel 22:29

“For thou art my lamp, O Lord:
and the Lord will lighten my darkness.”

If We’re to Shine The Light ~

If we’re to shine the Light,
then why more like Jesus aren’t we
why is His reflection in us . . .
so hard for others to see?

If we’re to act as the Light,
then why don’t we share
why to the Good News
don’t we make more people aware?

If we’re to live in the Light,
then why aren’t we a witness
why aren’t we spreading the truth
to those still living in darkness?

If we’re to be the Light,
then where is our power
why do we let satan . . .
our strength erode and devour?

If we walk in the Light,
our hope would radiate
and Jesus’ love for the world
we would always advocate!

~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

Sticky Note to God 12.31.17


Winning The Fight ~

Each day is a battle,
we must fight
against the darkness
with God’s light.

Against the forces,
led by the devil
against his armies
saying good is evil.

Our spiritual enemies,
are all around us
to their wicked ways
they want us to adjust.

But, we must stand,
for what we believe
and their evil lies
we must not receive.

Each day it’s a battle,
to shine God’s light . . .
and without His armor
we can’t win the fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places.”

A New Commandment ~

a-new-comandment-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A new commandment,
for you to do . . .
to love others as much
as Jesus loves you.

You must put away,
envy, greed and strife
if others are to see
Jesus’ love in you life.

You need to be the light,
exposing the true way
love must be the motive
behind the words you say.

You need to be honest,
about Jesus’ great love
how much He hates sin
as does His Father above.

A new commandment,
we were all given . . .
with love we need to tell
why it is we are forgiven!

~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.”

To Be An Overcomer ~

to-be-an-overcomer-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To be an overcomer,
we must see sin is the problem
our faith and trust in Jesus
must remain firm and solemn.

To be an overcomer,
we must confront the obstructions
that leads to the wide road
of everlasting destruction.

To be an overcomer,
we must tackle the world head on
we constantly must be
to the Holy Spirit drawn.

To be an overcomer,
we must be willing to defeat
Satan and his armies
so not to fall for his deceit.

To be an overcomer,
we can’t stand in the shadows
we must shed God’s light
so the darkness we can expose!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:4

“For whatsoever is born of God
overcometh the world: and this
is the victory that overcometh
the world, even our faith.

Who is he that overcometh the
world, but he that believeth
that Jesus is the Son of God?”

Near-Sighted ~

near-sighted-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, may my eyes not be,
short or near-sighted
may they not become
from the world blighted.

May on Your light,
my focus always be
not on the things going on
right in front of me.

Lord, may my vision,
never get cloudy
may my eyes on You
be fixed soundly.

May in the distance,
I clearly see You
not with a marred
or distorted view.

Lord, may I not develop,
near or short-sightedness
so I may be full of . . .
the light, of Your likeness!

~~~~~

Matthew 6:22

“The light of the body is the eye:
if therefore thine eye be single,
thy whole body shall be full of light.”

When CHRISTmas Day is Over ~

when-christmas-day-is-over-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
and the tree is finally down
as the lights are returned
to where they were found.

As we settle back into,
our daily routines
the hope of CHRISTmas
isn’t over by any means.

For, the reality of the day,
you cannot pack away
nor return or store it
back into some attic bay.

CHRISTmas lives on,
in our hearts everyday
for it’s the only Gift . . .
we can give each day.

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
be sure to keep sharing . . .
the Truth, Life and Way
by being Light bearing!

From the Poem:  Be The Light


A Joy Jump ~

unspeakable-joy-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some Christians,
seem to be grumpy
fussy and sulky
and a little bit crabby.

They seldom smile,
or say something nice
it’s as if their hope . . .
has turned dry as ice.

Some Christians,
seem to be uptight
I can hardly see
a flicker of light.

They barely laugh,
seldom do they grin
it’s as if their peace . . .
took one on the chin.

Oh, Lord if You see,
me being a grump
give my heart . . .
an eternal joy jump!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Giving Grace In A Graceless World ~

Giving Grace In a Graceless World ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Giving grace,
in a world that’s graceless
showing mercy
to those who are faithless.

Is something,
we must do
for it’s what God
expects of you.

Giving light,
in a world full of darkness
showing pity
to those who are hopeless.

Is our call,
as Christians
for it fulfills
our true mission.

Giving love,
in a world that’s loveless
is to understand . . .
the meaning of forgiveness!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 18:21-22

“Then came Peter to him,
and said, Lord, how oft
shall my brother sin against me,
and I forgive him? till seven times?

Jesus saith unto him,
I say not unto thee,
Until seven times:
but, Until seventy times seven.”

This Light of Mine ~

This Wee Light of Mine ~ CHRSITian poetry by deborah ann

In this world,
where darkness shines
it’s so hard to see
this wee light of mine.

It seems so dim,
when it is compared
to all the evilness
that is out there.

In this world,
where darkness shines
it seems to engulf
this teeny light of mine.

It appears so faint,
against sin’s glimmer
next to the wickedness
it looks like a flicker.

But, for You Lord,
I’ll continue to shine
for nothing can douse
this light of mine!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:14

“Ye are the light of the world.
A city that is set on an hill
cannot be hid.”

When My Light Dims ~

When My Light Dims ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

When my light,
dims and flickers
before it starts
to lose its glimmer.

To my Bible,
I rush and go
so I may again
feel the glow.

When my light,
starts to fade
before it starts
to degrade.

To the Holy Spirit,
I turn and go
until His power
once again flows.

When My light,
is shinning bright
I know it’s when . . .
with God I’m right!

Be the Light ~

Be The Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Your light can shine,
without saying a word
it can speak volumes
without being heard.

The light of your smile,
says I’ll brighten your day
the light of your touch
says I’ll help show the way.

The light of your tears,
says you have compassion
the light in your heart
says I’ll share God’s passion.

The light in your eyes,
says Jesus loves you
the light touch of your hand
says I’ll be with you too.

The light of your mind,
says I’ll show you mercy
the light in your look
says to God were all worthy.

You don’t have to say,
not a word of any kind
just let Jesus’ light shine
and His love others will find.

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
