Looking Unto Jesus ~

As troubles come,
as they most surely will
when the road ahead of you
looks all up hill.

When you are at a loss,
as to what to do
and you’ve no answers
not even a clue.

Look unto Jesus,
He knows how high the climb
He’ll help you over it
in His perfect time.

As hardships come,
as they seem to do
when they start to get
the very best of you.

When the pit you’re in,
is beyond waist deep
and all your cares
make you want to weep.

Look unto Jesus,
He will never let you sink
He is not as far away
as you may think.

As burdens come,
as they begin to occur
and in your mind
everything’s a big blur.

When nothing seems,
to make much sense
and you start to feel
nervous and tense.

Look unto Jesus,
He’ll give to you a new sight
and you’ll start to see . . .
everything through His light!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before
him endured the cross, despising the
shame, and is set down at the right
hand of the throne of God.

No Greater Love Known ~


No greater love than this,
that Jesus would die for me
no greater Friend . . .
in this world will I ever see.

No greater love will come,
than the one He freely gives
no greater joy . . .
knowing my Savior lives.

No greater love is there,
from a Father to a Son
no greater promise . . .
His will shall been done.

No greater love will I find,
than the one Jesus gives
no greater hope . . .
knowing my sins He forgives.

No greater love than this,
to the world from their King
no greater comfort . .
than the peace He will bring!

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have
everlasting life.”

Diamonds of His Grace ~

Do your tears downpour,
when you confess your sin
do they fall like raindrops
as they drip off your chin?

Is your heart remorseful,
of your every evil deed
will you give up your pride
and let the Holy Spirit lead?

Do your tears well up inside,
and come from deep within
do they drip like dewdrops
when you cry out to Him?

Will you come to the Light,
to have your heart reformed
will you call upon His name
so your life can be transformed?

Have you looked into God’s eyes,
and wept from your disgrace
do you know your tears to Him . . .
are the diamonds of His grace?

~~~~~~~

Psalm 30:5

For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour is life: weeping may
endure for a night, but joy cometh
in the morning.

Psalm 51:17

The sacrifices of God are
a broken spirit: a broken
and a contrite heart,
O God, thou wilt not despise.

What if Jesus?

Forgive

I question those Christians,
who say they love the Lord
and yet to forgive others
their hearts can’t get on board.

They tithe and go to church,
sometimes they read their Bible
but to those who’ve hurt them
they still hold them accountable.

They’ve chosen not to forget,
nor give to God their pain
to do so would mean
their suffering would be in vain.

For deep in their souls,
they’ve become the judge
and to forgive others means
their hearts would have to budge.

So they cling on to the past,
with hearts as cold as stone
instead of letting God
judge from His throne.

I wonder if they ever think,
what if Jesus had thought this way
I wonder what these Christians . . .
would then have to say!

Luke 6:37
King James Version

“Judge not, and ye shall not be judged:
condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned:
forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:”

My First Love ~

Come to Me by Jason Harper free photo #3244

Under the arbor of my soul,
with my First Love, I sit and rest
the fragrance of His grace
reminds me of how much I’m blessed.

On the trellis of my mind,
He supports my every limb
He reinforces His love for me
so I may lean evermore on Him.

Beneath the lattice of my heart,
there lies an undying devotion
and the mercy He has for me
consumes me with raw emotion.

He is the framework of my faith,
my life in Jesus is forever entwined
and the love I found under the arbor
is of His plan and by His design!

King James Version

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

Die, Old Man, Die

Die, old man, die
get thee out of my way
I want nothing of yours
so just die and go away.

Die, old man, die
I have no use for you
die to self and to flesh
for in Christ I am new.

Die, old man, die,
I’ll not follow your lead
die to worldly ambition
for Jesus is all that I need.

Die, old man, die,
you don’t rule this heart
die to all that is keeping
Christ and I apart.

Die, old man, die,
I will not let you win
die to all the trappings
I won’t give in to sin.

Die, old man, die,
get thee out of my way
for I will die to you . . .
so flee from me I say!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new

creation; old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new. “

Every Good and Perfect Gift ~

Good and Perfect Gifts by Jeremiah Bauer free photo #18650

Every good and perfect gift,
is given out of love . . .
creation, salvation, election
comes from God above.

He rewards the faithful,
with the Bread of Life
Jesus, Savior, Friend
the end to all man’s strife.

God gives without condition,
to all those who believe
help, comfort, eternal joy
when Jesus they receive.

He grants to every solider,
a place of perfect rest
pastures green, eagle wings
to see how much they’re blessed.

Every good and perfect gift,
comes like manna from above
mercy, grace, forgiveness
and for all ~ His eternal love!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 1:17
King James Version

“Every good gift
and every perfect gift
is from above,
and cometh down from the
Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.”

The Diamonds of His Grace ~

The Diamond's of Your Tears ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Are your tears like diamonds,
when to God you confess your sin
do they fall like raindrops
as they drip off your chin?

Is your heart remorseful,
of your every evil deed
will you give up your pride
and let the Holy Spirit lead?

Do your tears well up inside,
and come from deep within
do they fall like raindrops
when you cry out to Him?

Will you come to the Light,
to have your heart exposed
will you call upon His name
and let your sin be disclosed?

Have you looked into God’s eyes,
and wept from your disgrace
do you know your tears to Him . . .
are the diamonds of His grace?

Tears In A Bottle

There is a bottle up in heaven,
filling up with all your tears
drop by drop the Lord collects
the full harvest of your fears.

There is not a tear that falls,
where He is not aware
for He understands each drip
and the cause of your despair.

When tears of sadness,
are followed up with grief
He garners them in His vial
and sends His peace for relief.

He knows every wound,
as He gathers up your pain
and all your hurtful tears
to Him become like rain.

He reaps each tender trickle,
with His mercies from above
collects them in His bottle
and caps them  ~ with His love.

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:8
King James Version

“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?”

Look To Jesus ~

Look to Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

As troubles come,
as they most surely will
and the road ahead
looks all up hill
when you’re at a loss
as to what to do
and you have no answers
not even a clue.

Look to Jesus,
He knows how high the climb
He will get you up and over
in His time
He’s there to help you
in your need
if you let Him
guide and lead.

As hardships come,
as they seem to do
and they’re getting
the very best of you
when the pit you’re in
is waist deep
and all your trials
make you want to weep.

Look to Jesus,
He will never let you sink
He is not as far away
as you may think
He will get you out of
the depression you’re in
for He understands
just where you’ve been.

As burdens come,
as they begin to occur
and in your mind
everything’s a big blur
when nothing seems
to be really fair
and you think nobody
else will even care.

Look to Jesus,
He will give you a new sight
and you will see everything
in His amazing light
for when in your heart
you seek His face
He will give you
His peace to embrace.

~~~~~~~~

“Let your conversation
be without covetousness;

I will never leave thee,

nor forsake thee.”

Jesus, My Blessed Redeemer ~


He is the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End
He is our Jehovah, our Lord of Glory
our Eternal Life and forever Friend.

He is the Light of the world,
the Morning Star, the Righteous One
He is our Lord, our King, and our Prince
He is God’s only Beloved Son.

He is the Word and the Living Bread
the Ransom, the Truth, and the Way
He is the living Son of God
our Wonderful Savior of the day.

He is the Faithful Protector,
the Rock, the Shield, and the Rod
He is our Refuge, our Strength, our Fortress
He is the begotten Holy One of God.

He is the Good Shepherd,
The Redeemer, the Everlasting Peace
He is our Lamp and our Lamb
He is the Servant who came to teach.

He is the Fountain of Living Waters
the Helper, the Physician, and the Healer
He is our Portion, our Bread of Life
our Restorer and the Holy Spirit’s sealer.

He is the Branch and the True Vine
the Root of David is where He is from.
He is the Tree of Everlasting Life,
He is the Bridegroom yet to come.

He has many wonderful names,
on which we can surely call
but, Jesus . . . my Blessed Redeemer
is my favorite one of them all!

All Other god’s Are Idols

All Other God's Are Idols ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

All other gods are just idols,
worthless, useless and feign
they hold no power or value
nor can they rule or reign.

There’s only One God I know of,
He made the heavens and earth
and the Good News I bring you
will show His magnificent worth.

Honor and majesty are before Him,
strength and beauty is His domain
the sea swells to His greatness
Holier than Holy is His blessed name.

He has brought salvation to the world,
to all the people of every nation
soon He will pour out His judgment
and each will receive their due ration.

The universe will tremble before Him,
when on His magnificence all eyes gaze
the trees in the forest will rejoice
every living creature will sing His praise.

Mercy and truth He will bring,
than all other gods will burn away
for all the people will finally see
His righteousness on judgment day.

All other gods are just idols,
worthless, useless and feign
and I have a burning need to tell you
my God will soon come to  reign!

of the peoples are idols”

No Greater Love ~

No Greater Love ~ CHRISTIan poetry by deborah ann
No greater love than this,
that Jesus would die for me
no greater Friend . . .
will this world ever see.

No greater love will come,
than the one He freely gives
no greater joy . . .
knowing my Savior lives.

No greater love is there,
from a Father to a Son
no greater promise . . .
His will shall been done.

No greater love than this,
to the world from their King
no greater comfort . .
than the peace He will bring!
