Double Standards ~

Double standards,
double-minded
to God’s ways
oh, so blinded.

Indecisive,
volatile and fickle
finding themselves
often in a pickle.

Double talk,
double attractions
easily allured
by sinful distractions.

Fly-by-night,
and seat of pants
always willing
to take a chance.

Hearts unstable,
minds doubled
are souls who are
deeply troubled!

~~~~~~~

James 1:8

A double minded man
is unstable in all his ways.

The god Of This World ~

The god of this world,
blinds and darkens
the souls in this world
who to his lies hearkens.

He causes deaf ears,
hearts to be cold
he tells them the Bible
is a falsehood to behold.

He and his army,
are at war for God’s light
and to the bitter end
for it they will fight.

So they wager a battle,
with all that they can
by telling them Jesus . . .
was just a mere man.

The god of this world,
impairs the sight
of the souls in this world
so they cant see God’s light!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

” In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.”

God’s Saving Light ~

If I could gather,
all the rays of God’s light
every blinded eyes . . .
would receive new sight.

For within each beam,
the blinded eye would see
how the grace of Jesus
came to set them free.

If I could reap,
every ounce of God’s light
everyone would be full
of the power of His might.

For within each burst,
His love would crystallize
and His mercy for them
they would personalize.

If I could gather,
each beam and every ray
I’d forever shine God’s glory
on the Truth and the Way!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:6

” For God, who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.”

Once Blinded Eyes ~

once-blinded-eye-chrsitian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Once blinded eyes,
they couldn’t see . . .
through the darkness
surrounding me.

But, since they’ve seen,
Jesus through His light
they now recognize evil
upon first sight.

Once blinded eyes,
didn’t see the wickedness
nor the penalty
for their recklessness.

But, since they’ve set,
their gaze on above
they can see the things
in the world not to love.

Once blinded eyes,
the dark couldn’t perceive
until in Jesus . . .
they came to believe!

Psalm 146:8

“The Lord openeth the eyes
of the blind: the Lord raiseth
them that are bowed down:
the Lord loveth the righteous:”

Once I Was ~

i-was-blind-now-i-see CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann belka

Once I was blind
myself, was all I could see
until the day, I heard Jesus
had died for me.

He opened my eyes,
made me look at my sin
and a spiritual revelation
took place within.

Once I was deaf,
I was unable to hear
until the day, I heard Jesus
wanted me to come near.

He spoke to me,
through the Good News
now I’m enlightened
my fears He’s diffused.

Once I was dumb,
I couldn’t understand
until the day, I heard Jesus
had for me eternity’s plan.

He showed me the path,
lit the way with His light
now I can see everything
through His glorious sight.

Once I was lame,
I just stumbled about
until the day, I heard Jesus
would clear up my doubt.

He took these feet,
made of mire and clay
showed me how to keep them
on the straight narrow way.

Once I was dead,
but now all I live for . . .
is the day with Jesus
I’ll be  ~ forever more!

~~~~~~~

John 9:25
King James Version

“He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no,
I know not: one thing I know, that,
whereas I was blind, now I see.”

The Soul Pants ~

The Soul Pants ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The soul pants,
after pastures green
living waters . . .
life-giving streams.

This thirst needs,
spiritual blessings
wrapped in the truth
not just the dressings.

Hunger pains,
not being satisfied
needing more of Jesus
and why He died.

Those deaf ears,
don’t want to hear
no longer willing
to heed or adhere.

Blinded eyes,
can’t really see . . .
if Jesus doesn’t live
inside of thee.

Stony hearts,
wrenched souls
need more than ever
to be consoled.

The soul pants,
for the truth . . .
as in the days
of its youth!

~~~~

Psalm 42:1
King James Version

“As the hart panteth
after the water brooks,

so panteth my soul
after thee, O God.”

Holding the Line

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
