The Gift That Keeps Giving ~

Christmas Memories used with Permission IBible Verses

I have for you a gift,
that keeps on giving
I bet it’s like no other
that you’ll be getting.

It takes a whole lifetime,
to discover its full measure
ah, but what is inside
you will forever treasure.

There is no real price,
anyone can put on it
it’s so enormous in value
that everyone it fits.

It’s bundled up and swaddled,
in mercy and eternal grace
wrapped up so ever tightly
is God’s love for you to embrace.

Please won’t you take it,
this gift is for just for you
open it up and you will see
salvation makes all things new.

It will keep on giving,
each day you’ll find more
of Jesus’ undying love
to unwrap and explore!

and thou shalt call his name Jesus:
for he shall save his people from their sins.”

A Free Gift ~

You Can't Earn Your Way to Heaven used with permission IBible Verses

There is a CHRISTmas gift,
that needs not be wrapped
a present that is free . . .
won’t leave you strapped.

You can’t find it at the mall,
nor see it on TV
there’s no place on-line
where this gift you’ll see.

It’s available all year through,
not just at CHRISTmas time
and the best thing about it
it won’t cost you a dime.

It’s a gift undeserving,
you could never earn it
but when you try it on
it will be the perfect fit.

If you’d like this gift,
ask Jesus into your life
confess to Him your sins
put an end to your strife.

For God has given to you,
the gift of eternal grace
in our Lord and Savior
and it’s yours to embrace!

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life

Oh, To Know Thy Goodness

Life Worth Living used with permission IBible Verses

Oh, to know Thy goodness,
Thy holiness and Thy grace
to have within my very reach
Thy strength to embrace.

Then I shall not ever doubt,
or fall away in dreaded fear
then I shall know what it’s like
to have You ever near.

Oh, to understand Thy anger,
Thy judgments and Thy wrath
to seize upon the truth that leads
to deliverance along Thy holy path.

Then I would mount up on the wings,
that eagles use to fly and soar
then I would take off to the heavens
and enter through salvation’s door.

Oh, to have found Thy perfect rest,
from the weariness from deep within
to grasp the Gospel of Christ Jesus
and find deliverance from my sin.

Then I shall not be tossed or thrown,
by every gust of wind or stormy wave
then I would find my Lord, my Savior
waiting for me  ~ to save!

ye might have life through his name.”

Hand Molded ~

Hand molded,
each little curve
made with love
so God we can serve.

Formed out of clay,
a vessel to be used
in our hearts . . .
God’s Spirit was fused.

God is the Potter,
Christ is the mold
and His ways . . .
we’re to keep and hold.

Sometimes we crack,
under the pressure
but God will restore
for we’re His treasure.

Hand molded,
grace’s transformation
renewed in His love
by His sanctification!

King James Version

“But now, O Lord, thou art our father;
we are the clay, and thou our potter;
and we all are the work of thy hand.”

The Table of Grace ~

Table of Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

At the table of grace sits a sinner,
a drunkard, a murderer and a thief
at the table of grace sits an adulterer
a liar and a denier of his own belief.

At the table of grace sits a sinner,
an abuser, a liar, an idolater
at the table of grace sits you and I
my brother, my sister, my neighbor.

At the table of grace sits Jesus,
who was beaten for our shame
at the table of grace sits the Christ
who took upon Himself our blame.

At the table of grace sits a sinner,
who partakes in the agony of His strife
at the table of grace sits our Savior
whose blood bought for all ~ eternal life!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 26:27-28
King James Version

“And he took the cup, and gave thanks,
and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
For this is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”

I Can Do This ~

I Can Do This ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
I can do this,
I will get through it
for I have Christ
He gives me the grit.

I can climb this,
this I can do
for I have Jesus
and His power too.

I can battle this,
yes, I will win
for I have Christ
and His strength within.

I can handle things,
this storm I can face
for I have Jesus
and His constant grace.

I can do this,
I will get through this
for I have Christ
how could I ever miss!

Philippians 4:13
King James Version
