As I Look Around ~

Lord, as I look all around,
I see all You have made
I see the beauty in the sunrise
and the splendor when it fades.

I see the majestic mountain peaks,
and the hills brilliant, amber tops
I see the stars sparkle ever brightly
in a sky that never seems to stop.

Lord, when I look all around,
I see all the things You have done
I see how much I am blessed
by the love and grace of Your Son.

I see Your mercy dispersed,
when a Savior was given
to a world so full of sin
so all could be forgiven.

Lord, when I look all around,
I see Your glorious splendor
and I pray more souls to You . . .
their heart’s will surrender!

In Silent Wonder ~

In Silent Wonder ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes in silent wonder,
I stand truly amazed . . .
as I stare upon the earth
and all that God has made.

I gasp at the beauty,
of the sun on the rise
I sigh at its splendor
as it dips into the skies.

I watch the ocean’s wave,
gently roll to the shore
I listen to the restful hush
right before it starts to roar.

I hear the melody of life,
in the songs a bird sings
when all is calm and still
I can even hear its wings.

I see the hills and dells,
show off their golden covers
before unfolding their buds
of wildflowers and clover.

Sometimes I’m amazed,
as I stand in silent wonder
and I thank God for letting me
gaze on all of His splendor!

sheweth his handywork.”

When I Look Around ~

Glowing Sun Set byChari Christiani free photo #6723

Lord, when I look all around,
I see all You have made
I see the beauty in the sunrise
and the splendor when it fades.

I see the majestic mountain peaks,
the hills brilliant, golden tops
I see the stars sparkle ever brightly
in a sky that never seems to stop.

Lord, when I look all around,
I see all the things You have done
I see everything I’m blessed with
and I am grateful for every one.

I see a warm and cozy home,
filled with all the love I need
I see the bounty on my full plate
and a Bible I can always read.

Lord, when I look all around,
I see the mercy You have given
I see the cross on Mount Calvary
and I’m thankful I am forgiven.

I see a world who doesn’t believe,
in the glory of Your grace
I see millions of lost people
who refuse to seek Your face.

Lord, when I look all around,
I see Your glorious splendor
and I pray more hearts to Your love
will truly yield and surrender!

I Am in Awe ~

When I Consider ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission Doorpost verses

 Father, when I think on the things,
with Your finger You have done
I stand in awe . . .
over each and every single one.

When I ponder the heavens,
the vastness of the space above
I am in awe . . .
by the magnitude of Your love.

When I peer into the sky,
gaze upon the stars and planets
I am in awe . . .
by Your breathtaking talents.

When I reflect on the universe,
how endless it seems to be
I am in awe . . .
You even thought to create me.

Oh, Father when I consider,
all the things You have done
I stand in complete awe . . .
by the light of Your Son!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 8:3-4

“When I consider thy heavens,
the work of thy fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which thou hast ordained;

What is man, that thou art
mindful of him?
and the son of man,
 that thou visitest him?”

The Reason for My Hope ~

peter-living-hope CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I believe in God,
in all of His glorious creation
I believe He made the heavens
and the earth’s foundation.

I believe that man,
came from but dust
I believe it’s God’s image
He puts into all of us.

I believe that Satan,
is the cause for our fallen state
I believe it’s still his lies
he uses on us to trap and bait.

I believe that man’s heart,
has always been cold and callous
I believe it’s full of deceit
filled with ungodly malice.

I believe in Jesus,
God’s only begotten Son
I believe He died and rose again
for the sins of everyone.

I believe in redemption,
from our wicked, evil ways
I believe it’s the blood of the Lamb
that washes our sins away.

I believe in God’s love,
I believe in His grace
I believe one day
God’s judgement all will face.

I believe in Heaven,
I also believe in hell . . .
I believe for eternity it’s where
the unsaved will dwell.

I believe in the hope,
Jesus imparts in me
I believe all can be saved
if these truth they’d just see!

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

Peter 3:15
King James Version

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer to
every man that asketh you a reason of the hope
that is in you with meekness and fear:”

God’s Masterpiece!

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

You are a masterpiece,
a portrayal of pure love
for you are put together
by the Creator up above.

You are a work of genius,
God knew just what to do
for He put His very image
and heart inside of you.

You are picture perfect,
you look like no other one
For God’s portrait of you
is in the likeness of His Son.

You are a work of art,
every line He has detailed
for your very frame
He has pared and scaled.

You are a masterpiece,
a stunning success . . .
God’s handiwork at its best
because you, He has blessed!

I May Be Daffy . . . But!

How Many Are Your Work used with permission DoorPost Verses on Facebook

I believe God created me,
some think that makes me daffy
but I don’t care what they say
for in Jesus I am happy.

I believe in Creation,
others have their own theory
when I say that’s not the way
it only brings out their fury.

I know God created everything,
His works I will not deny
all the other assumptions
are just a product of Satin’s lie.

I believe God did it all,
in just seven days . . .
and that is why today
I trust the wisdom of His  ways!

Think Upon Such Things . . .

Thoughts by Nick Schmidt free photo #15612

Whatever things that are good,
whatever that builds up hope
think upon such things . . .
and they will help you to cope.

Whatever things that are true,
whatever that exposes God’s light
think upon such things . . .
and they will make your life bright.

Whatever things that are lovely,
whatever that God splendidly made
think upon such things . . .
and they will never pale or fade.

Whatever things that are just,
whatever that makes you honest
think upon such things . . .
and they will bless you as promised.

Whatever things that are noble,
whatever that will bring you peace
think upon such things . . .
and they will never fail or cease.

Whatever things that are of men,
whatever that causes you to sin
think not about such things . . .
and your thoughts they won’t win!

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

Philippians 4:8
King James Version

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble, whatever things
are just, whatever things are pure, whatever
things are lovely, whatever things are of good
report, if there is any virtue and if there is
anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”

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!

“For all the gods
of the peoples are idols”
