CHRISTmas Wonder ~

May you feel the wonder,
of God’s gift of a Savior
may His love and grace
you hold on to and savor.

May you feel the thrill,
of the hope of His birth
may your heart overflow
with joy, cheer and mirth.

May you feel the wonder,
of the coming of a King
may you trust and believe
in the peace He’s soon to bring.

May you feel the excitement,
of Him who was and is to come
may you be eager and ready
for Him to set up His kingdom.

May you feel the wonder,
of God’s blessed assurance
as you await the day . . .
of His next appearance!

So It Be Done ~

So it be written,
so it be done . . .
so unto the world
God sent His Son.

So it be told,
so it be said
so by a star
the Magi’s were led.

So it be stated,
so it be completed
so to a manger
shepherd’s retreated.

So it be scripted,
so it be transcribed
so for man’s sin
Jesus lived and died.

So it be written,
so it be done . . .
so Jesus was born
to save everyone!

Isaiah 14:24

“The Lord of hosts hath sworn,
saying, Surely as I have thought,
so shall it come to pass;
and as I have purposed,
so shall it stand:”

John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only
begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.”

CHRISTmas Is Coming ~

CHRISTmas is coming,
I can feel the stress
the joy of the season
is becoming less and less.

I can see the crankiness,
impatience and frustration
saying Merry CHRISTmas
only brings more irritation.

CHRISTmas is coming,
I can feel the strain
the hope of the season
is going down the drain.

I can sense the pressure,
the tension and weariness
tidings of peaceful cheer
are met with dreariness.

CHRISTmas is coming,
but, through the stress I’ll cope
for the season still fills me . . .
with joy, peace and hope!

~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope
fill you with all joy
and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power
of the Holy Ghost.”

I Don’t Recognize CHRISTmas ~

CHRISTmas has become,
more of a pagan holiday
now not even the manger
can some put on display.

They’ve done a good job taking,
CHRIST out of the big picture
even the cards they make and sell
now seldom have a scripture.

CHRISTmas has become,
just another time to gather
at parties and at homes
where Jesus doesn’t matter.

There’s always plenty of food,
and lots of drinks to go around
but, Jesus’ name isn’t mentioned
unless someone has a meltdown.

I don’t recognize CHRISTmas,
for me it is just not the same
now that I offend so many . . .
when I say my Saviors name!

Jesus The True Light ~

May this Christmas,
you find the one True Light
so that Jesus
can give you a new sight.

May you discover,
your own personal Savior
by accepting the gift
of God’s ultimate favor.

May this Christmas,
you find the True Way
and the truth behind
Jesus’ birth this day.

May you discover,
God’s glorious love
delivered to you
from up above.

May this Christmas,
you open your heart
so God into it . . .
grace can impart!

John 1:9-10

which lighteth every man
that cometh into the world.

He was in the world,

and the world knew him not.”

The Morning Star ~

The Morning Star,
today is shining bright
for unto the world came
God’s redeeming light.

A child, a babe,
the Son of Man
the world He can save
oh, yes He can.

For to all of those,
who trust and believe
His love and grace
their soul’s receive.

A Savior born,
many years ago
so on us God’s mercy
He could bestow.

The Morning Star,
shines bright today
tis the true reason
for CHRISTmas Day!

“I Jesus have sent mine angel
to testify unto you these

God’s Gift of Love ~

God's Gift of Love ~ CHRSTian poetry by deborah ann

A manger’s crib,
a virgin’s birth
a Babe is born
peace on earth.

Angels above,
glory, glory sing
over the coming
of the King of Kings.

A new hope,
a new day
a Savior born
to show the way.

Wise men travel,
from afar
to find the truth
behind the Star.

A new covenant,
a new joy
all wrapped up in
Mary’s little Boy!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:10-11

“When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him: and when
they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto him gifts; gold,
and frankincense and myrrh.”

I’ll Be That Light ~

This CHRISTmas,
I will be that light
my love for Jesus . . .
will shine ever bright.

I will be the one,
who’s hope will glow
my love for Jesus . . .
from my heart will flow.

This CHRISTmas,
my joy will beam
my love for Jesus . . .
off my soul will gleam.

I will be that person,
who’s faith will rise
my love for Jesus . . .
will illuminate my eyes.

This CHRISTmas,
my light will glisten
for, I am not ashamed
of saying I’m a CHRISTian!

God’s Free Gift To All ~

God gave to all a gift,
a present like no other
some openly receive it
others with it don’t bother.

Some take their whole lives,
to unwrap God’s loving gift
some from the get go
don’t believe it will ever fit.

Some accept it openly,
some keep it under-wraps
some make it their whole life
some think it is just a trap.

Some take their time,
to understand what’s inside
some instantly push the gift
of grace and mercy aside.

God gave to all a free Gift,
of His begotten, beloved Son
and He desires it to be . .
received by each and everyone!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:18

“Therefore as by the offence
of one judgment came upon
all men to condemnation;
even so by the righteousness
of one the free gift
came upon all men unto
justification of life.”

Why Do You Celebrate CHRISTmas ~

Why do you celebrate CHRISTmas,
what does it do for you . . .
does the real meaning of it
hold for you what is true?

For, CHRISTmas is God’s Gift,
of His love for one and all
He sent His Son so you would
receive salvation’s call.

What do you want from CHRISTmas,
what are you looking for
do you not know by now
you can’t find it in a store?

For, Jesus was born to be,
the Savior of the world
and onto His shoulders
every sin, God unfurled.

You may think you don’t need Him,
but, He will always want you . . .
to ask Him for forgiveness
so He can make all things new.

Why do you celebrate CHRISTmas,
what does it really mean to you?
For, CHRISTmas is only about
a Savior’s dying love for you!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:11

“For unto you is born this day
in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.”

1 Peter 2:24

“Who his own self bare our sins
in his own body on the tree,
that we, being dead to sins,
should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed.”

The Greatest Gift ~

The greatest Gift,
that you can give
is the One . . .
that sin, forgives.

For, it’s full of grace,
joy, love and light
when it’s opened
it gives new sight.

The greatest Gift,
to pass along
is the One . . .
that lasts all  lifelong.

For, eternal life,
is its only content
making it the most
Wonderful present.

So if you don’t know,
this year what Gift to give
tell others why Jesus . . .
in your life now lives!

The Miracle of CHRISTmas ~

Throughout history,
God had a plan . . .
about how He could save
all of man.

 So, He’s appeared to Moses,
in a burning bush
and in Elijah He was
that whispering, small hush.

He gave men dreams,
and many visions too
even a donkey talked
to get His Word through.

But man’s heart was like stone,
and wouldn’t heed to His way
and He knew like sheep
they had all gone astray.

So God became silent,
for over four-hundred years
what He was up to . . .
wasn’t meant for our ears.

Then He sent His Son,
one Christmas morn
and to the whole world
a Savior was born.

The Word became flesh,
and lived amongst us
and taught all who’d listen
how in His Father to trust.

He talked about sin,
repentance and forgiveness
He talked about His Fathers
mercy, grace and goodness.

His message was clear,
lives He could transform
if to the world ways
they would not conform.

And now two-thousand years,
have come and gone
but, the miracle of CHRISTmas
still today lives on.

For God had a plan,
right from the start
and it’s never  to late to ask . . .
Jesus into your heart!

~~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

It’s A Wonderful Life ~

It’s a wonderful life,
when in Jesus you believe
it’s a fantastic experience
when God’s gift you receive.

It’s a life filled with hope,
peace, joy and rest
grace is a wondrous thing
when with it you’re blessed.

It’s a wonderful life,
when you know God’s greatness
favor is a glorious thing
when you accept His goodness.

It’s a life of forgiveness,
sacrifice and redemption
mercy is a magnificent thing
when you seek its perfection.

It’s a wonderful life,
when in Jesus you believe
for God’s love, mercy and grace
are the gifts you’ll receive!

~~~~~~~~

A Look Into the Manger ~

Some people look,
but they don’t see
the gift God sent
to set them free.

They see a manger,
but not the Savior
they see a Babe
but not God’s favor.

They see a Boy,
but not the King of Kings
they see a Child
but not the hope He brings.

They see the Wise Men,
but not the Prince of Peace
they see the Shepherds
but not God’s love released.

Some people look,
into the manger
but they only see . . .
Jesus as a stranger!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:12

“And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.”

Christmas Traditions ~

We all have our own,
Christmas traditions . . .
and so we put our homes
through all kinds of transitions.

We set up our Christmas trees,
on branches, ornaments we dangle
we hang up Christmas stockings
along with garland on the mantle.

We all have our own,
Christmas time rituals . . .
and so our yearly customs
have become habitual.

We shop until we drop,
buying Christmas wishes on our list
we check it more than once
to make sure we get the right gift.

We cook and we bake,
Christmas pies, cakes and cookies
we peel, we dice, we roast
so we can binge on all the goodies.

We all have our traditions,
but they have no real connection . . .
to the true meaning of CHIRSTmas
they’re nothing more than a deflection!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6-7

For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be
upon his shoulder: and his name
shall be called Wonderful,
Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government
and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David,
and upon his kingdom, to order it,
and to establish it with judgment
and with justice from henceforth
even for ever. The zeal of the
Lord of hosts will perform this.”

The Joy of CHRISTmas ~

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
ring in your ears
may the hope it brings
rid you of your fears.

For unto this day,
a Child was born
a Savior to the world
one glorious morn.

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
feel you with cheer
may the peace it brings
last all throughout the year.

For unto to this day,
God sent us His Son
loved and begotten
to bring joy to everyone.

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
ring loud and clear
may the love that it brings
draw Jesus to you near!

~~~~~~

Luke 2:10

“And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold,
I bring you good tidings
of great joy,
which shall be to all people.”

God’s Gift to The World ~

No Other GIft ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Swaddled in the manger,
lies a precious Baby Boy
God’s gift to the whole world
to bring it peace and joy.

Wrapped around the little Babe,
is a blanket of undying love
covering the entire world
with God’s mercy from above.

Inside of the tiny cradle,
lies our Lord and Savior
born to bring unto the world
His Father’s grace and favor.

No other Gift will come,
in such a perfect bundle
none will ever be . . .
so meek and so humble.

Swaddled in the tiny manger,
for all the world to receive
lies the Gift of Salvation . . .
if in Jesus they’d believe!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6

“For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:

and the government
shall be upon his shoulder:
and his

name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor,

The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,

The Prince of Peace.”

No Better Present ~

Once again it’s the time,
to celebrate Jesus’ birth
a time to get caught up
in all the holiday mirth.

And though I am grateful,
for God’s Gift of my Savior
His second coming now . . .
I so much more would favor.

For there’s no other present,
that I would rather receive
then to be caught in the clouds
and with Him take my leave.

And though I am thankful,
for God’s Gift of His grace
His return right now . . .
my heart would so embrace.

For there’s nothing I want,
more than God’s peace . . .
but I don’t believe the chaos
in this world will ever cease.

Once again it’s the time,
to celebrate the birth of our King
but I would rather observe . . .
the calm, His return will bring!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 4:17

“Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them

Seeking What’s Wise ~

christmas-934181_640

Lord, may I be a seeker,
a follower of Your light
may I have the wisdom
like the Magi’s had that night.

May I travel the distance,
regardless of how far
may I be willing to go
to wherever You are.

May I have the resolve,
to follow where You lead
may I see to Your will
I must be willing to heed.

May I have the tenacity,
not to ever quit
may I be to Your ways
determined to submit.

May I have the fortitude,
to journey into what’s wise
may I  have the stamina
so Your path I’ll recognize.

Lord, may I always seek You,
like the Magi’s did that night
may I have the courage . . .
to follow after wisdom’s light!

The Spirit of CHRISTmas ~

The Spirit of Christmas ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
May the Spirit of CHRISTmas,
come to rest inside of you . . .
may the power that it brings
each day restore and renew.

May the real Gift of CHRISTmas,
be the one you share always
may the grace it brings
you extend past the holidays.

May the Peace of CHRISTmas,
come to rest inside of you . . .
may the light it brings
shine in you eternal and true.

May the Joy of CHRISTmas,
in your heart forever be
may the happiness it brings
consistently be what others see.

May the Spirit of CHRISTmas,
come to rest inside of you . . .
may you sing God your praises
for making all things new!

have seen his star in the east,
and are come to worship him.”
