If We Train Our Children~

If we train our children,
God, to always fear
then they will sense
His Spirit close and near.

If we raise our children,
to have Godly restraint
then with this world
they’ll not want to acquaint.

If we educate our children,
God, to always love
then they will lay
their treasures above.

If we teach our children,
to follow God’s plans
then they will know
their times are in His hands.

If we instruct our children,
to follow God’s ways
then His laws they’ll obey
for the rest of their days.

If we train our children,
right from the start
then from His ways . . .
they will not depart!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 22.6

Train up a child
in the way he should go:
and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.

When With God We Walk ~

Life is a journey,
when with God we walk
and when we read the Bible
you can almost hear Him talk.

For, as we travel through,
the pages keep telling us
it is in Me . . .
that you need to trust

As we make our way,
from the old to the new
God shows everything
He desires for us to do.

For, His Word instructs us,
how we are to live and be
and if we follow it . . .
one day His glory we’ll see.

We will find God’s blessings,
as the verses we go through
mercy, grace, joy and peace
just to name a few.

Life is a journey,
when with God we walk
but, we must be willing . . .
to listen when He talks!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:19

” Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way
in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.”

The Undiluted Word of God ~

The Undiluted Word of God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Give me the pure Word of God,
not the New Age diminished versions
give me the real Good News
not the ones filled with man’s perversions.

Give me the sincere Word of God,
so I can taste all of His goodness
give me the undiluted translation
not the ones supporting man’s lewdness.

Give me the solid Word of God,
so I can sink my teeth into it
give me the true meat of the Gospel
not the ones coming from man’s own spirit.

Give me the sincere Word of God,
so I may savor His mercy and grace
give me the true unaltered Scriptures
not the ones that makes me feel no disgrace.

Give me the pure Word of God,
so my soul may be nourished
give me the Holy Spirit inspired version
not the ones that man has refurbished!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“What thing soever I command you,

It Takes Work ~

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of studying.

It takes days,
months, even years
to get rid of
our doubts and fears.

It takes praying,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of Bible reading.

It takes faith,
trust and desire
for the Word of God
in us to inspire.

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes a heart . . .
opened to receiving!

~~~~~~~~

John 6:28-29

“Then said they unto him,
What shall we do,
that we might work
the works of God?

Jesus answered and said
unto them, This is
the work of God,
that ye believe
on him whom he hath sent.”

I’ve Not The Power ~

In myself,
I haven’t the power
to outrun satan
when he’s out to devour.

So, my spiritual sneakers,
I am putting on . . .
to insure this race
can be victoriously won.

I’ll pull up my laces,
God’s Word will be the knot
so to satan’s snares
off guard, I’ll not be caught.

With my Bible verses,
I’ll plan each of my steps
so I can remain diligent
in following the concepts.

In myself,
I haven’t the power
but, with God’s strength
satan, I will overpower!

~~~~~~~

“Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary

for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

My Soul Thirsts ~

Lord, in the aridness,
of my heart and soul
I am thirsty for You
to reign and take control.

I long to absorb and drink,
from Your holy Word
to feel the Living Waters
in my mind being stirred.

Lord, in the dryness,
of my daily reality
I thirst for You to bring
a hopeful vitality.

I long to be nourished,
with the Truth and Life
to feel Your stilling peace
eat away my earthly strife.

Lord, my soul thirsts,
for You solely . . .
tis why I seek You
with my heart wholly!

~~~~~~

Psalm 63:1

“O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;”

Open Our Eyes Lord ~

Open our eyes Lord,
to all of Your wonder
on Your very Word
may we daily ponder.

Let us see You,
in all of Your goodness
give us an eye-full
of Your loving-kindness.

Open our eyes Lord,
to all of the splendor
of living a life . . .
to You, in surrender.

Let us always dwell,
on all that is right
give us a glimpse into
the lamp of Your light.

Open our eyes Lord,
to Your Word wondrous
so we may see how much
to us, You are generous!

~~~~~~

” Open thou mine eyes,
that I may behold
wondrous things
out of thy law.”

Throwing In The Towel ~

Some days I feel like quitting,
just throwing in the towel
some days I don’t want to think
of another rhyming vowel.

Some days it’s so hard,
putting words into rhyme
some days I feel as if . . .
I’m just wasting my time.

But, then I read my Bible,
and the verses seem to jump
helping me to get over
my poetry writing slump.

For, God keeps telling me,
to continue, to carry on
how I need to keep doing
what I know He has begun.

Some days I feel like quitting,
blogging how and what I feel
but, then God encourages me
and restores my rhyming zeal!

Finding the Truth ~

When the Word of God,
is your daily bread
your spiritual hunger
will be fed.

When in your Bible,
you each day abide
your spiritual thirst
will be supplied.

When you soak up,
all the Good News
your life it’ll shape
if you so choose.

When the Scriptures,
you learn and memorize
you’ll see right through
satan’s disguise.

When you saturate,
your heart and mind
in the Word of God . .. .
the truth you will find!

~~~~~~~

John 8:31-32

“Then said Jesus to those Jews
which believed on him,
If ye continue in my word,
then are ye my disciples indeed;

And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.”

Once Again Reborn ~

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,

which liveth and abideth

Life’s Demands ~

Lord, sometimes I get exhausted,
with all of life’s demands
sometimes I get so tired
following everyone’s commands.

For, I would much rather,
just spend time alone with You
with my Bible and commentary
the only two things in view.

Lord, sometimes I get fatigued,
just thinking of all I’ve to do
sometimes I am overwhelmed
meeting time lines, coming due.

For, I would so much rather,
just sit and listen to . . .
praise and worship songs
about my love for You.

Lord, sometimes I get weary,
thinking about the day ahead
for, I would so much rather  . . .
just stay praying to You in bed!

I trust Him

Open Eyes ~

Open eyes,
make believing hearts
spiritual understanding
they will impart.

Open eyes,
observe things clearly
to God’s Word
they are not leery.

Open eyes,
know the facts
they’re not deceived
by satan’s traps.

Open eyes,
do not doubt
they have checked
the truth out.

Open eyes,
don’t need to see
to know Jesus . . .
has set them free!

It’s Not About the Storms ~

It’s not about the storms,
we find ourselves in
it’s about if they help us
to avoid every kind of sin.

It’s not about the winds,
that blow us around
it’s about if they help us
to keep our minds sound.

It’s not about the rains,
flooding through our life
it’s about if they help us
to give God our daily strife.

It’s not about the tempests,
on us being thrust
it’s about if they help us
in God to rely and trust.

It’s not about the weather,
the wind, rain or tempest
it’s about if they help us
to find God’s peace and rest.

It’s not about the storms,
nor how wind-whipped our boat
it’s about whether we used . . .
our Bible, to help keep us afloat!

In The Name of Tolerance ~

in-the-name-of-tolerance-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God gave us His commands,
to follow and obey
but, that is not what’s taught
in some pulpits today.

Instead we’re being told,
the laws God once gave
can be changed to fit
however we want to behave.

They promote transgression,
in the name of tolerance
skewing the Words of Jesus
to suit their preference.

As the love for self grows,
so does our earthly desires
so they tell us we no longer
need to do what God requires.

God gave us His commands,
they’re written in the Good Book
but, so many for themselves
haven’t even taken a look!

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:12

“For the word of God is quick,
and powerful, and sharper
than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing
asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the
thoughts and intents
of the heart.”

Bible Crunches ~

bible-crunches-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Today I’m exercising,
going to let it rip
going to strengthen
tighten up faith’s grip.

I’ll go all the way
get Scripture sculpted
so my belief in God
can never get corrupted.

I’ll do Bible crunches,
tone up my Gospel flab
so I can be ready
to fight off Satan’s jabs.

I’ll do a full workout,
I’m going to optimize
so my trust in God
can’t be compromised.

Today I’m exercising.
going to spiritually stick it
for, I’ll be working out . . .
with the Holy Spirit!

New Discoveries ~

Each day is a new adventure,
God gives us to explore
each day He wants us . . .

Every place that you look,

no matter where you turn
God is waiting for you there.

Every year God has for us,
something new and exciting
each day He wants us to be
in His Word exploring.

Every verse you read,
has something just for you
each Scripture you study
your faith it will renew.

Every day is a new adventure,
God has for us to investigate
and it’s up to us . . .
to use His Word to navigate!

Life Isn’t Fair ~

life-isnt-fair-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God’s purposes are bigger,
than all of our troubles
He has His reason
for each of our struggles.

God uses our problems,
to temper our hearts
so His grace and mercy
in them He can impart.

God uses our worries,
to help us focus on
why He sent into this world
His own begotten Son.

God uses our burdens,
so we can learn to be
dependent on Jesus
not in what we can see.

God’s purposes are grander,
than our every care . . .
that’s why in the Bible
you won’t hear, life is fair!

The Infallible Word of God ~

the-infallible-word-of-god-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I believe God’s Word,
is completely infallible
every solitary word
every single syllable.

I believe God’s Word,
is Spirit inspired
and not one verse
should be retired.

I believe God’s Word,
in its entirety
that every chapter
has validity.

I believe God’s Word,
to be absolutely true
that not one Scripture
should be skewed.

I believe God’s word,
yes, I believe it all . . .
right from the beginning
down to the final roll call!

takes away the doubt.

It brings Light,
whether night or day
by shining Truth

Jesus is the key,
to eternal life

Your Navigation Tool ~

your-navagation-tool-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When into your life,
a storm blows in
before it commences
to bring turmoil within.

Open up your Bible,
it will map out for you
how to maneuver
your way through.

When in deep waters,
uncharted, unknown
before the conditions
turn into a cyclone.

Your Bible is the tool,
to help you navigate
all the heavy swells
till the waters abate.

When into your life,
a storm blows through
use the Word of God
to calm and still you!

are still.”

Hide and Seek ~

Hide and Seek ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God has something.
He wants me to find . . .
so I’ll be seeking Him
with all my heart and mind.

I’ll diligently be pursuing,
what He has for me
though at this very moment
it’s not too clear to see.

It’s as if I am playing,
with Him hide and seek
so I’ll  search my Bible
until to me He speaks.

As I look for Him,
throughout His Word
all kinds of revelations
in my spirit are stirred.

Oh, the things,
God has for me to find
when I seek Him with . . .
all my heart, soul and mind!

~~~~~~~

“But if from thence thou shalt

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
