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!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18

” The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his
calling, and what the riches
of the glory of his inheritance
in the saints,”

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 . . .
to get to know Him more.

Every place that you look,
new discoveries are everywhere
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!

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things
work together for good

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!

2 Timothy 3:16-17

“All scripture is given
by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of God may be perfect,
thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

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!

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 pursing,
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

When Light Enters In ~

When Light Enters In ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When you have faith,
Light enters in
when you have Light
you’ll have peace within.

When you have trust,
the Word will guide
when you’re Spirit lead
in God you’ll abide

When you have Truth,
you will find the Way
when the Life you follow
in the Word you’ll stay.

When understanding,
is something you need
the Word will clarify
just how to proceed.

When faith is released,
it ushers in the Light
releasing in you  . . .
God’s power and might!

Breaking Point ~

Breaking Point ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When you have reached,
your breaking point
turn to the Word of God
let it heal and anoint.

It will give you strength,
for what lies ahead
as you read the verses
pray to be Spirit lead

When you are confused,
not knowing what to do
open up your Bible
let its light show you.

On the pages you’ll find,
the truth and the way
and all of your tension
it will melt away.

When you have reached,
the point of breaking
trust God to do all . . .
your decision-making!

Blessings of Assurance ~

Blessings of Assurance ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each day in my Bible,
I am blessed to read
of every assurance
that I will ever need.

I have a warranty,
to God’s mercy and grace
I have evidence
one day I’ll see His face.

I have a verification,
of life eternally
I have the Holy Spirit
dwelling internally.

I have confidence,
God hears all my prayers
I have affirmation
Jesus takes my cares.

I have a guarantee,
temptation I can flee
I have a crown of life
that is awaiting me.

I have a promise,
death I will not fear
I have an insurance
Jesus is always near.

I have a sureness,
I’ll not hunger or thirst
I have the authority
to always seek God first.

I have a confirmation,
I am God’s child
I have a surety
in Jesus I’m reconciled.

Each time I read my Bible,
there are blessings of assurance
to which I’ll hold tight . . .
until Jesus’ reappearance!

Deeper and Stronger ~

Stroner and Deeper ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, take me deeper,
so I may be stronger
let me not be taken
by lies others conjure.

Let my heart be fixed,
keep my walk stable
let not my faith become
just another label.

Build me up Lord,
keep me firmly rooted
so the truth I’ve found
doesn’t become diluted.

Let me abound,
in grace and wisdom
so I may have joy
inside my thankful bosom.

Lord, make me stronger,
take me ever deeper
establish my faith . . .
beyond a Bible peeper!

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 2:6-7

“As ye have therefore received
Christ Jesus the Lord,
so walk ye in him:

Rooted and built up in him,

as ye have been taught,
abounding therein
with thanksgiving.”

Needing a Boost ~

Needing a Boost ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Needing a boost,
a real lifter-upper
something to give
your nerves a buffer?

Then go to the Word,
look up God’s peace
and soon you’ll feel
a calming release.

Needing a hand,
an arm to hold on
something to grasp
till your fears are gone?

Then go the Word,
look up God’s grace
and soon you’ll feel
joy light up your face.

Needing a lifter-upper,
a hand, a boost, an arm?
Then go to your Bible . . .
and your worry it’ll disarm!

Rx For The Soul ~

Rx For The Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, when I’m feeling down,
when I am sad and blue
I medicate myself . . .
on the loving things You do.

Your Word becomes the Rx,
for my heavy-laden soul
it cures my depression
my sadness it consoles.

When I’m feeling hopeless,
when I am discouraged
I take a shot of Your Word
knowing I’ll be encouraged.

I inject into me Your mercy,
shoot myself with Your grace
until feelings of desperation
I no longer hold or embrace.

Lord, when I’m feeling down,
when I need a dose of inspiration
I simple go to my Bible . . .
to get my daily inoculation!

When The Tough Get Going ~

When the Tough Get Going ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When the going gets tough,
the tough get braver
for they have a battle plan
that’s a real life-saver.

When the tough get going,
they become thirstier
for they know God’s Word
will make them feistier.

When the going gets tough,
the tough get bolder
for they know God’s Word
will make them soldiers.

When the tough get going,
they become hungrier
for they know God’s Word
will make them sturdier.

When the going gets tough,
the tough go to their Bible
for they know it’ll help them beat
Satan, their ultimate rival!

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!

Perfect Instructions ~

Perfect Instructions ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s Word teaches me,
with perfect instructions
it leads me away . . .
from evil destructions.

His Word is my light,
so in the darkness I can see
the sinfulness and wickedness
everyday surrounding me.

God’s Word is the truth,
there are no if’s or but’s
I know to follow it . . .
there can be no short cuts.

His Word is His promise,
of things yet to be
it shows me how faith
is more than what I see.

God’s Word teaches me,
the right way to go
it holds everything . . .
I’ll ever need to know.

I know I need to hear,
His Word everyday
but unless I am a doer
I’m bound to go astray!

New Year’s Resolutions ~

New Year's Resolution~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Now that the holidays,
are finished and over . . .
we’re ready to make up
our new plans, to go for.

So we write out our list,
of freshly made resolutions
arrange them out carefully
for their perfect executions.

We set out all determined,
to reach our new-born goals
but within the first months
we lose all our self-control.

So this year if you want,
to really get into shape . . .
then your new year plans
you will need to scrape.

For you don’t need a list,
of new things you should do
all you need is your Bible . . .
and a year to read it through!

Back to The Basics ~

Back to the Basics ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In a spiritual slump,
can’t get over the hurdle
your zeal and zest for Jesus
has all but fizzled and curdled?

Going to church each Sunday,
but getting nothing out of it
living the Way and Life
no longer a perfect fit?

Well, it’s time to get back,
to the basics of faith . . .
quit doing the opposite
of what the Bible saith.

You need to be confident,
in the God you trust . . .
keep your nose in the Word
your eyes off worldly lust.

You need to hold on to,
your hope with assurance
continue running the race . . .
with strength and endurance.

You need to reclaim your joy,
recoup your inner peace
recapture your first love . . .
then your faith will increase!

Seeking God’s Counsel ~

Seeking God's Counsel ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I need counsel,
when guidance I seek
I turn to God’s Word
then I let it speak.

For its full of wisdom,
so divinely conveyed
and I know it is God
who I need to obey.

His Word won’t cause,
me to go astray
for it reveals to me
the Life and the Way.

I trust where it leads,
I’m sure it will show
the righteous path
God wants me to go.

God’s Word is my compass,
its full of His direction
pointing me to my final
glorious destination!

Walking By Faith ~

Walking by Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I walk by faith,
into the unknown
but, I trust the way
to me will be shown.

It’s not my eyes,
that gives me light
for, it’s God’s Word
that gives me sight.

I walk by faith,
I look for guidance
in my Bible . . .
I put my reliance.

I trust in God,
to guide me
into the things
I cannot see.

I walk by faith,
if I lose my way
I simply stop . .
and to God I pray.

For He gives me,
the vision I need . . .
when to His Word
I obey and heed.

I walk by faith,
into the unknown
for, I’m sure it leads
right to His throne!
