A New Creation Awaits ~

When you ask Jesus
into your heart
deliverance from sin
will spontaneously start.

When for your trespasses,
you ask Jesus to atone
living a sinful life
you’ll no longer condone.

When you ask Jesus,
to pardon your sin
regeneration
will promptly begin.

When for your sins,
you ask Jesus to forgive
your former way of life
you will not want to relive.

When you ask Jesus,
into your heart . . .
a new creation awaits
right from the start!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.”

The Remorseful Appeal ~

God hears our cries,
our sins He knows
He sees the tears
from our eyes flow.

God sees us weeping,
over our disgrace
He knows our need
for His merciful grace.

God listens to our sobs,
as His name we call
He watches the tears
from broken hearts fall.

God hears the outcry,
of our remorseful appeal
He knows by His stripes
our lives Jesus came to heal.

God understands our cries,
for His own Son, too wept
and with His in a bottle
all of our tears are kept!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:8

“Thou tellest my wanderings:
put thou my tears into
thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?”

Don’t Be a Sellout ~

You can tell God you’re sorry,
ask Him for forgiveness . . .
but, without true repentance
sin, still will be your weakness.

You can try to conquer sin,
but, it is impossible to do
unless you have the Holy Spirit
and His power helping you.

You can beg and you can plea,
for your sins to be forgiven
but, without turning from them
to sin, you’ll still be driven.

You can try to stay away,
from all evil and wickedness
but, without the Light in your life
you’ll still be drawn to the darkness.

You can cry, you can weep,
over your besetting sin
but, without true remorse
over them you’ll never win.

You can try to keep sin at bay,
you can try to cut it out . . .
but, without true repentance
to sin you will still sellout!

Luke 5:32

“I came not to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance.”

In The Lord’s House ~

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to forever dwell
there is no way . . .
I’m willing to go to hell.

For, my sins I’ve confess,
repented and turned from
by grace through faith is how
I’ll enter His kingdom.

In Your house Lord,
is where I want to be
so, for the rest of my days
I’ll faithfully follow Thee.

For, the world is full darkness,
but, You have brought me Light
Your mercy and goodness
are now always in my sight.

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to live forever
oh, how I cannot wait . . .
for us to be together!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:6

“Surely goodness and mercy
shall follow me all the days
of my life: and I will dwell
in the house of the Lord for ever.”

When You Walk in The Light ~

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is a lot of confessing
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of acknowledging,
the sinfulness we daily fight
there is a lot of repenting
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of recognizing,
the evil we daily fight
there is a lot of conviction
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of fessing up.
to  the vices we daily fight
there is a lot to let go of
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is true repentance
when you walk in the light!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7-9

“But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light, we have
fellowship one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ
his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin,
we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness.”

The Microscope of Grace ~

hidden-sin-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Under the microscope of grace,
God sees our imperfection
and we must be willing to open . . .
up our hearts for His inspection.

Through the lens of His mercy,
He can spot our hidden sin
and we must let Him search
the crevices within.

His light will focus in on,
the darkness still inside
and we must realize from Him
there’s nothing we can hide.

With compassion and pity,
God sees us who we are
He can spot in a second
those close to Him or far.

God looks for His Son’s image,
to be reflected back at Him
and under grace’s microscope . . .
He sees through our secret sin!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 4:5
King James Version

“Therefore judge nothing
before the time,

until the Lord come,
who both will bring to light

the hidden things of darkness,
and will make manifest

the counsels of the hearts:
and then shall every
man have praise of God.”

Praying for America ~

Praying for America ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Father, keep us safe,
as we celebrate . . .
our country’s freedoms
that have made us great.

Let us not go further,
down the road of sin
help us to turn from
the wickedness within.

Bring us back,
to trusting in You
give this Nation
a heart that is new.

Make us humble,
let us see our shame
so we can prayerfully
call upon Your name.

Heal our land,
scour out the pride
so You can be
once again our guide.

Father, keep us safe,
until such a time
this Nation comes out
of its downward climb!

~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people,
which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.”

If These United States ~

If The United States ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If we want healing,
If we want our land
to once again . . .
be in God’s hand.

Then we the people,
of these United Sates
will have to confess
to our wicked mistakes.

We’ll need forgiveness,
for all of our evilness
we’ll need God to cure
our spiritual sickness.

From our evil ways,
we’ll need to depart
we’ll need to put God
back into our hearts.

If we want healing,
if we want God back in
then we the people . . .
must stop committing sin!

~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people,
which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.”

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)
