Winning Life’s Crown ~

When you’re discouraged,
feeling down in the dumps
you need to give yourself
in Jesus a joy jump.

For He can bring you out,
of that pit you are in . . .
once you start to focus
on the Goodness of Him.

When you’re disenchanted,
with the world around you
you need to give yourself
a more heavenly view.

For God has a mansion,
filled with numerous rooms
where tears, sorrows and death
no longer lurks or looms.

When you’re feeling sad,
discouraged and down
just think about Jesus . . .
and winning Life’s Crown!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:12

Blessed is the man that
endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the crown of life,
which the Lord hath promised
to them that love him.

Hat Juggling ~

We all wear various hats,
of miscellaneous kinds
we all have certain roles
tossing around in our minds.

But, when for the Lord,
we perform our tasks
He’ll help us balance them
when for His help we ask.

We all wear assorted hats,
of differing forms
we all have vast duties
each day we perform.

But, when for the Lord,
our commitments we fill
He will help us juggle them
with the strength to do His will

We all wear varying hats,
of different sorts and sizes
and in the end the Crown of Life
will be the one we prize!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me.

Guilty Sinners ~

Guilty sinners,
deserving disgrace
instead are saved
by Jesus’ grace.

Worthy of hell,
its perishing heat
instead their Savior
in heaven will meet.

Guilty sinners,
not meriting favor
instead eternity
they will savor.

Worthy of humiliation,
for their sin
instead the crown of life
they will win.

Guilty sinners,
saved by Jesus’ grace
for He was cursed
in their place!

~~~~~~

Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned,
and come short of
the glory of God;”

Galatians 3:13

“Christ hath redeemed us from
the curse of the law, being
made a curse for us: for it
is written,
Cursed is every one
that hangeth on a tree:”

The Daughter of A King ~

I am a daughter of a King,
royalty flows through my veins
I am the child of a Prince
in my heart He lives and reigns.

I am an heir to a mansion,
with walls of pure gold
where precious gem stones
shine brilliant and bold.

I am a daughter of a King,
I have a royal destiny
my citizenship is in heaven
tis where I’ll spend eternity.

I have an eternal treasure,
that is waiting just for me
the crown of life I will wear
when with my Lord I’ll be.

I am a daughter of a King,
waiting for my inheritance
I am the child of a Prince
I can say with all assuredness!

~~~~~~~

Galatians 3:26

“For ye are all the children
of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

1 Peter 1:4

” To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you”

Revelation 21:18-19

And the building of the wall
of it was of jasper:
and the city was pure gold,
like unto clear glass.

And the foundations of the wall
of the city were garnished
with all manner of precious stones.”

James 1:12

“Blessed is the man that
endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the crown of life,
which the Lord hath promised
to them that love him.”

Waiting ~

Lord, You have given me,
these mighty eagles wings
said they’d give me strength
in the problems life brings.

You said for me to wait,
for Your Son to return
until such time to give
You all of my concern.

You said there would be,
no weariness or fatigue
to wait until the day
the crown of life I’ll receive.

You said I would walk,
without ever fainting
to focus on the future hope
You have for me awaiting.

Lord, You have given me,
these powerful eagle wings
and so I patiently wait . . .
for the newness of all things!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40.31

“But they that wait
upon the Lord shall
renew their strength;
they shall mount up
with wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

Through the Eyes Of God’s Grace ~

Through the Eyes of God's Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I got me this thing,
but, at it I don’t look
instead my eyes are on
what’s in the Good Book.

This thing is pretty heavy,
but, it doesn’t weigh me down
because I am focusing
on my everlasting crown.

One thing I know for sure,
what I have is temporal
and all that really matters
is what will be eternal.

This thing is quite annoying,
it’s always in my face
but, I can see right past it
through the eyes of God’s grace.

I got me this affliction,
but, over it I don’t worry
for my eyes are set on seeing . . .
God in all His wondrous glory!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

“For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more
exceeding and eternal
weight of glory;

While we look not at the things
which are seen, but at the things
which are not seen: for the things
which are seen are temporal;
but the things which are not seen
are eternal.”

Blessings of Assurance ~

Blessings of Assurance ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each day in my Bible,
I am blessed to read
of every assurance
that I will ever need.

I have a warranty,
to God’s mercy and grace
I have evidence
one day I’ll see His face.

I have a verification,
of life eternally
I have the Holy Spirit
dwelling internally.

I have confidence,
God hears all my prayers
I have affirmation
Jesus takes my cares.

I have a guarantee,
temptation I can flee
I have a crown of life
that is awaiting me.

I have a promise,
death I will not fear
I have an insurance
Jesus is always near.

I have a sureness,
I’ll not hunger or thirst
I have the authority
to always seek God first.

I have a confirmation,
I am God’s child
I have a surety
in Jesus I’m reconciled.

Each time I read my Bible,
there are blessings of assurance
to which I’ll hold tight . . .
until Jesus’ reappearance!

~~~~~

Hebrews 6:11

“And we desire that every one
of you do shew the same
diligence to the full assurance
of hope unto the end:”

My Soul’s Destiny ~

Run the Race used with permission from Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I’ve entered the race,
I’m going for the gold
to win it I’ll need . . .
to be brave and bold.

If I’m to finish well,
I’ll need to work out
my faith in Jesus
and shed any doubt.

I don’t want to run,
out of energy or steam
lest the crown of life
I won’t be able to redeem.

My eyes are on the future,
I’m in it for the long-haul
I want to hear Jesus say . . .
My servant, who was faithful.

My heart is set to prevail,
so to claim my victory
because heaven for me . . .
is my soul’s destiny!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 9:24

“Know ye not that they which run
in a race run all,
 but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.”

Victory’s Crown ~

~For His Glory by Chris Reinecke free photo #8400

On the troubled sea,
blinded by wind and foam
my heart is set to sail . . .
towards my eternal home.

The rise of each crashing wave,
tests my faith once more
but, I’m determined to ride them out
till I land on heavens shore.

The raging swells I will fight,
I’ll not give up on Thee
for my soul is anchored to the One
with whom I am meant to be.

Every gust of the angry wind,
seeks to take me down
but, I will stand up to their wrath
till I receive victories crown.

Though the seas are troubled,
and have their sights out for me
I’ll endure each battering wave
for my sails Lord are set on Thee!

~~~~~~~~~~~

James 1:12
King James Version

“Blessed is the man
that endureth temptation:

for when he is tried,
he shall receive
the crown of life,

which the Lord hath promised
to them that love him.”
