Harden Your Heart Not ~

Harden not your heart,
to your spiritual condition
let it not turn cold
by your selfish ambition.

Let it not turn callous,
like the rebellious one
let it not become distant
by a grumbling tongue.

Harden not your heart,
to the Spirit’s leading
let it not turn frigid
by the sins you’re keeping.

Let it not become rigid,
by carelessly drifting
let it not be stubborn
by the life you’re living.

Harden not your heart,
by disbelief or doubt
let it not turn icy
by shutting God’s Word out.

Let it not turn you away,
from the hope of eternal peace
let it not turn to stone . . .
lest your faith in God may cease!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 3:13

“But exhort one another daily,
while it is called To day;

lest any of you be hardened
through the deceitfulness of sin.”

Blanket of Clouds ~

the-blanket-of-clouds-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, thank You for the blanket,
of clouds today . . .
they are helping to melt
all the snow away.

The temperature is rising,
it’s almost above freezing
and now to my comforter
I’ll not have to be squeezing.

It still is cold outside,
but, for now I am thankful
all the snow is thawing
even though it’s beautiful.

I know Winter  just began,
but, I still can’t wait for Spring
so I’ll be counting the days
till daily warmth You bring.

Lord, thank You for the blanket,
of warming clouds today . . .
as to its melting all the snow
I say hallelujah and hooray!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 147:16-18

“He giveth snow like wool:
he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

He casteth forth his ice like morsels:
who can stand before his cold?

He sendeth out his word,
and melteth them: he causeth
his wind to blow,
and the waters flow.”

Winter’s End ~

The Yard used with permission Creation Swap

Lord, I look out my window,
gray skies are all I see
if I were to go outside the wind
would blow right through me.

Rain, sleet and hail,
are beating at my door
I don’t think this nasty weather
I can handle too much more.

Lord, the snow is getting old,
it’s time to retire the blower
please don’t let the temperature
get down too much lower.

Snowmen are fun to make,
snow angels can be a blast
but how much longer do You plan
for this winter chill to last?

Lord, I pray You’ll soon end,
this frozen winter slumber . . .
because, I don’t think my hands
can get any more ~ number!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 147:16-17
King James Version

“He giveth snow like wool:
he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

He casteth forth his ice like morsels:
who can stand before his cold?

On the Eaves of Winter ~

Red Cardnal in Winter used with permission Creation Swap by Kevin Carden

On the eaves of winter,
hangs depression and gloom
where my thoughts drip of Spring
and the sights of its bloom.

I can hardly wait,
for these cold days to be gone
so I can rise with the robin
and listen to Springtime’s song.

On the dawn of Spring,
are the shadows of new life
putting an end to the bitter chill
and the ache of winter’s strife.

Spring is just around the corner
but I’m not sure if I can wait
and I pray every day to God . . .
“Oh, please don’t let Spring be late!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Song of Solomon 2: 11-12
King James Version

“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and
gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the
time of the singing of birds is come, and the
voice of the turtle is heard in our land;”

Heart Matters ~

Heart Matters ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo/Creation/Swap

There isn’t a heart too cold,
that God can’t melt
there isn’t one too stony
where He can’t be felt.

There isn’t a heart too cynical,
that God can’t shake
there isn’t one too hardened
that He can’t break.

There isn’t a heart too rigid,
that God can’t move
there isn’t a heart too rough
that He can’t smooth.

There isn’t a heart too lost,
that God can’t find
there isn’t a heart too far off
that He’d leave behind.

There isn’t a heart too broken,
that God can’t love
there isn’t a heart in the world
that He would ever let go of.

~~~~~~~~~

John 3:16
King James Version

“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.”

The Winter Soul ~

The winter of the soul . . .
is a cold and lonely season
when it doesn’t understand
the intention or the reason.

The bitter winds that come,
chills it to the marrow
with each gust that blows
it feels like a poison arrow.

The freezing rain and sleet,
seizes up its every tear
they become like icicles
encased with all its fear.

The winter soul can’t take,
the ills, the weight, the loss
unless the soul is willing
to keep clinging to the cross.

For it is in this icy season,
the soul can find His warmth
and nestle in the comfort
of what God will bring forth.

So, if the battered soul,
is to survive this frosty time
it must be willing to soar
and over each blizzard climb.

Winter in the soul . . .
is a cold and lonely season
but it can find great peace
knowing God has His reason.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 3:1
King James Version

“To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven;”

Change of Heart ~

change_your_heart_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God can take the stony-heart,
the self-centered and defiant
change it into something . . .
that is on Him, truly reliant.

He can cut out the aloofness,
of a heart set in its own way
sever the ties it has to the world
give it no more reason to stray.

He can smooth out the roughness,
in a heart made of stone
fill it with longing for all things
that come from His throne.

He can take that cold and hard,
heart beating inside of you . . .
turn it into one full of passion
give it a purpose, to all you do.

A heart of flesh God will give you,
one that lives and breathes
in you a new spirit He will put
where faith and truth breeds.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26
King James Version

“A new heart
also will I give you,

and a new spirit
will I put within you:

and I will take away
the stony heart
out of your flesh,

and I will give you
an heart of flesh.”

Harden Not Your Heart ~

The Heartfelt Fight by Boaz Crawford free photo #921

Harden not your heart,
to your spiritual condition
let it not turn cold
by your selfish ambition.

Let it not turn to stone,
like the rebellious one
let it not become distant
by a grumbling tongue.

Harden not your heart,
to the Holy Spirit’s leading
let it not turn cold
by the sins you’re keeping.

Let it not become rigid,
by careless drifting
let it not be stubborn
by the life you’re living.

Harden not your heart,
by disbelief or doubt
let it not turn cold
by shutting the Word out..

Let it not turn you away,
from the hope of eternal peace
let it not turn to ice
let not your faith in God cease !

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 3:13
King James Version

“But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day;
lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”
