A Thread of Hope ~

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for doubt and fear
not to breed.

For all it takes,
is one little strand
for God’s power
to be in your hand.

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for trust and faith
to be freed.

For all it asks,
is for you to believe
God’s mighty strength
you will receive.

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for faith to grow
from a mustard seed!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, ye shall say
unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.

for yours sins you’ll receive.

God’s way is righteous,
it is tried and true
it’s where you will find
why Jesus died for you.

God’s way is direct,
it is holy and straight
leading all who follow it
through the narrow gate.

it leads to salvation
removing the curse . . .
of eternal damnation!

You Can Do It ~

You can move that mountain,
if you believe Jesus can . . .
with His help you can turn it
into a pile of rock and sand.

You can dislodge that mountain,
you can displace it
if you have the strength
of the Holy Spirit.

You can take that mountain,
you can beat the odds
you can conquer it
if you trust in God.

You can banish that mountain,
you can make it depart
you can make it go away
if you believe with all your heart.

You can move that mountain,
God’s power you will receive
if in Jesus . . .
you have the faith to believe!

and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.”

I Need to Know ~

Lord, I need to know,
how to be still . . .
I want to understand
Your perfect will.

I desire to believe,
You’re in control
I long to feel
trust in my soul.

I seek to find,
Your peace ideal
I search to discover
Your mercy’s real.

I wish to have,
faith complete
I care to believe
You’re my retreat.

Lord I need to know,
how to truly rest . . .

I Came Into This World A Sinner ~

I came into the world,
with not one single thing
and when I go to see Jesus
there’s nothing I can bring.

For, my treasures on earth,
will rust from corruption
but, in heaven they’ve been
everlasting from conception.

I have a lot of stuff,
making my life comfortable
but, they are all to God . . .
worthless and corruptible.

For, God has for me,
eternal life as my treasure
where peace and joy
will flow without measure.

I came into this world,
as a sinner, but I will leave
as someone who in Jesus
has trusted and believed!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust
doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Faith is Speaking To You ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Shh, do you hear it,

He has for you to do?

Do you hear the words,

give Me your life
so I can take control?

Do you hear the words,

A Believing Heart ~

A Believing Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A believing heart is set,
on things from above
it abides securely
in God’s love.

Hope springs up from it,
mercy rests inside
a believing heart knows
its needs are supplied.

A believing heart is set,
on grace and faith alone
it knows without Jesus
for its sins it can’t atone.

Peace rises from it,
strength and power too
a believing heart is convinced
all things are possible to do.

A believing heart is set,
the Word of God it receives
it shares with the world
why in Jesus it believes!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 10:9-10

“That if thou shalt confess
with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him from the
  dead, thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth
unto righteousness; and with the
mouth confession is made
unto salvation.”

It's Up to Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s given me faith,
that’s mountain moveable

that is incredible
and it’s up to me . . .
to do the impossible.

He’s given me strength,
that is invisible
and it’s up to me . . .
to believe in miracles.

He’s given me trust,

and it’s up to me . .
to do the unbelievable.

God’s given me faith,

so that I would believe. . .
with Him all is doable!

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!

It’s All About Believing ~

It's About Believing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s not about who,
got us to the starting line
it’s about believing . . .
Jesus is the One True Vine.

It’s not about what,
we were doing before
it’s about believing . . .
Jesus came to restore.

It’s not about when,
we decided to join in
it’s about believing . . .
Jesus died for our sin.

It’s not about where,
we got the Good Word
it’s about believing . . .
in the truth we heard.

It’s not about why,
we decided to trust
it’s about believing . . .
Jesus lives inside of us.

It’s not about how,
we got into the race
it’s about believing . . .
in mercy, love and grace.

It’s not about you,
and it’s not about me
it’s about believing . . . .
in what we cannot see!

Free Love ~

 

God’s love is free of charge,
there are no strings attached
there’s nothing you need to do
there are no works attached.

God’s love is unconditional,
it doesn’t matter who you are
God loves you whether to Him
you are near, aloof, or far.

God’s love is sacrificial,
He gave His only begotten Son
not just to a few chosen . . .
but to each and everyone.

God’s love is accessible,
to anyone who will believe
~ Jesus died for their sins ~
forgiveness they will receive.

God’s love is nonjudgmental,
He wishes not one soul to perish
eternal life He offers all
if Jesus, you love and cherish.

God’s love is free of charge,
there are no strings attached
the liberation of His grace . . .
in the world, is still unmatched!

whatsoever he saith.

I have a family room,
one to rumpus all around
but, without Christ . . .
I’d never be heaven bound.

I have sterling silver,

but, without Christ . . .
I’m still my tarnished, sinful self.

I’ve many wonderful things,
and an awful lot of stuff
but, without Christ . . .
in this world it’s not enough.

I can travel abroad,
I can get from here to there
but, without Christ . . .
who really cares to where.

I have family all around me,
many people I call my friend
but, without Christ . . .
my life, will come to a godless end.

I been given a lot in this life,
that can be seen externally
but, without Christ. . .
what would I have eternally?

is not of the Father, but is of the world.

How Many Are Your Work used with permission DoorPost Verses on Facebook

I believe God created me,

I believe in Creation,

it only brings out their fury.

I know God created everything,

I trust the wisdom of His  ways!

This Walk of Faith ~

I walk the walk of faith,
hand in hand with my Lord
in my heart His Word
I’ve put away and stored.

I trust and I believe,
He’s always here with me
though at times it’s dark
His light helps me to see.

When I falter in my belief,
not sure of the way
I can rely on Him
to hear me when I pray.

I know He’s next to me,
I’m never all alone
even though there are times
when I feel I’m on my own.

This walk of faith is simple,
but sometimes I make it hard
when I take away the trust
my hopes get somewhat jarred.

I know I must be faithful,
to walk this walk with Him
for when there is not a doubt
His light won’t fade or dim!

The entrance of Your words gives light;
 It gives understanding to the simple.”

All Things Are Possible ~

all-things-are-possible-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

All things are possible,
when in God you trust
all things are promising
when you see He is just.

All things have meaning,
when in God you believe
all things have purpose
when His Spirit you receive.

All things are a blessing,
when God you obey
all things come together
when to Him you pray.

All things are attainable,
when God is your hope
all things are brighter
when He helps you to cope.

All things are achievable,
when in God you rest
all things will work out
when He does what is best.

All things work together,
when your life to Jesus you give
all things are beautiful
when He’s the reason you live!

Luke 1:37
King James Version

“For with God
nothing shall be impossible.”

Why Do I Believe?

Stop Doubting by Thomas Roberts free photo #17827

When people ask me,
why I believe the way I do
why in God I still trust
after all I have been through?

I take my time to respond,
with meekness I explain . . .
it wasn’t God who went away
it was I, who did not remain.

God has never left my side,
He has always been with me
it was I, who became blind
who chose His will not to see.

It was I, who took the chance,
who wandered off the path
it was I, who stopped believing
sin still stirred up His wrath.

God has never failed me,
He has waited for me patiently
it was I, who broke His heart
so very shamelessly.

It was I, who began to doubt,
who needed something more
it was I, who went out looking
behind every tempting door.

God’s grace has covered me,
His mercy awaited my return
it was I, who needed reminding
for my sins, in hell I’d burn.

Lord, when people ask me,
why I believe the way, I do . . .
I tell them that temptation’s door
kept leading me back to You.

1 Peter 3:15-16
King James Version

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer
to every man that asketh you a reason
of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”

Oh, Wonderful Savior

love-joy-hope free photo

Oh, precious Jesus,
how great is Your name
today and tomorrow
You’re always the same.

You came into my life,
made a believer of me
gave me eternal hope
just by believing in Thee.

Oh, wonderful Savior,
who would have thought
that my pitiful life
You would have bought.

You are the peace,
I feel deep in my soul
just saying Your name
soothes and consoles.

Oh, precious Jesus,
into my life You came
today and forever
I’ll trust in Your name!

Psalm 9:10
King James Version

“And they that know thy name will put their
trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not
forsaken them that seek thee.”

Though I am Born Again . . .

Saved by Jon Tomero free photo #7929

Though I am born again,
I still look the same . . .
the only difference is
I am baptized in His name.

I know I am still a sinner,
but I’m trying hard not to be
and I am sure that my faults
you still can see in me.

I am not yet perfect,
but I am learning every day
how to live like Jesus
and to follow His righteous way.

I know you don’t believe,
but I haven’t a single doubt
and I trust that my Lord
will work all things out.

I’ve got a lot of changing,
that I know I need to do
and I believe that my Savior
will help me see them through.

I’ve made many choices,
that I am not proud of
but I am counting on His mercy
and trusting in His love.

I know when you look at me,
I don’t look any different
but I know somethings new
and in Jesus I am confident.

All I am asking you,
is to give me some more time
before you begin to judge me
and condemn me for my crime.

Though I am born again,
I am not without blame
but the day I accepted Jesus
He took with Him my shame!

Don’t You Hear God’s Echo?

Don’t you hear God’s echo,
throughout the world today?
Telling those who will listen,
to turn and come His way.

Don’t you hear the vibration,
of the warning signs abound?
Giving man another chance,
to turn his life around.

Don’t you hear the clamor,
coming off the wailing wall?
Weeping with the purpose,
to receive the anointed call.

Don’t you hear the rumble,
as the earth begins to shake?
Trying to get our attention,
to enter through His gate.

Don’t you hear the roar,
in the waves upon the shore?
Crashing down around us,
declaring God we can’t ignore.

Don’t you hear God’s echo,
in the thunder up above?
Rebounding with an invitation,
to accept His gift of love!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 4:5
New King James

“And out of the throne proceeded
lightnings and thunderings and voices:
and there were seven lamps
of fire burning before the throne,
which are the seven Spirits of God.

Ye of Little Faith ~

Oh, Ye of Little Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, ye of little faith,
let not your fear betray
the power God’s given
to stay afloat today.

Oh, ye of little faith,
don’t let doubt enter in
keep your eyes on Jesus
not on the mighty wind.

Oh, ye of little faith,
be not troubled or afraid
cast off your anxious view
let Jesus come to your aid.

Oh, ye of little faith,
He will not let you sink
let your mind reflect Him
in everything you think.

Oh, ye of little faith,
your Lord will save you
keep your trust in Jesus
and He’ll come to your rescue!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 14:30

“But when he saw the wind boisterous,
he was afraid; and beginning to sink,
he cried, saying, Lord, save me.”
