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.”

No Room For Jesus ~

No Room for Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our government today . . .
no longer in our schools
are we allowed to pray.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our courtrooms today . . .
for the ten commandments
they have taken away.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our society today . . .
for the laws of morality
are filled with man’s decay.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our homes today . . .
there’s too many distraction
keeping Him at bay.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our country today . . .
for most no longer follow
the Life, Truth and Way!

~~~~~~

“I am come a light into the world,
that whosoever believeth on me
should not abide in darkness.”

Perfect Instructions ~

Perfect Instructions ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s Word teaches me,
with perfect instructions
it leads me away . . .
from evil destructions.

His Word is my light,
so in the darkness I can see
the sinfulness and wickedness
everyday surrounding me.

God’s Word is the truth,
there are no if’s or but’s
I know to follow it . . .
there can be no short cuts.

His Word is His promise,
of things yet to be
it shows me how faith
is more than what I see.

God’s Word teaches me,
the right way to go
it holds everything . . .
I’ll ever need to know.

I know I need to hear,
His Word everyday
but unless I am a doer
I’m bound to go astray!

James 1:22

and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.”

Rise Up ~

I Will Rise ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Whenever you fall,
you must rise up again
no matter the struggle
or the amount of pain.

Lest Satan our enemy,
will fight to keep you down
he will do anything . . .
to pin you, to the ground.

Whenever you tumble,
get right back on your feet
no matter the plunge
or you will suffer defeat.

For the devil our adversary,
likes to keep you in chains
he will jump at the chance
to hold you in his restrains.

Whenever you stumble,
when into darkness you fall
Jesus will light your way
if on His name you call!

~~~~~~~

Micah 7:7-9

” Therefore I will look unto the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation:
my God will hear me.

Rejoice not against me,
O mine enemy: when I fall,
I shall arise; when I sit in darkness,
the Lord shall be a light unto me.”

The Wicked ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

The wicked enter through,
the gate of pride and lust
worldly riches pave the path
for it’s in “things” they do trust.

They walk with the ungodly,
party with the irreligious
depravity sleeps in their beds
their covers are sacrilegious.

The wicked live in the dark,
their lives are full of greed
they look to the immoral law
to fill their wants and needs.

They do not have a future,
they’re on a road of no hope
drinking and carousing
is the way for them to cope.

The wicked’s end is miserable,
for eternity they’ll spend in hell
but, they who follow God’s Word
in heaven with Him ~ will  dwell!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 1:1-2

“Blessed is the man that walketh not
in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
 nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord;
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”

What If ~

~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

What if there was no pain,
no grief, no more misery
no tears left to collect
no more human agony?

What if there was no hunger,
no thirst, nor starvation
no want or need left unmet
no dying from prostration?

What if there was no murder,
no killing, nor slaughter
no more innocent victim
no soul so cold and bitter?

What if there was no hatred,
no disgust, nor loathing
no heart so full of evil
no more darkness looming?

What if there was no pain,
no sorrow, no grief, no tear
what if Jesus never promised
to come again and live here?

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.”

One-Step- At-A-Time ~

It's A Daily Thing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creation Swap

It’s a daily thing,
this Christian walk
it’s a one-step-at-a-time
this Christian walk.

It’s a journey,
at times a troublesome one
it’s a battle
with Satan that must be won.

It’s a voyage,
one storm right after another
it’s a struggle
to keep our faith from going under.

It’s a passage,
from the darkness into the light
it’s an encounter
needing all our strength and might.

It’s an expedition,
with our very own cross to bear
it’s a fight
not to buckle under from our care.

It’s a daily thing,
this Christian walk
it’s a one-step-at-a-time
to walk this Christian walk!

~~~~~~~~~~~

These Evil Days ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Understanding the Lord's Will - IBible Verses

In this world today,
evilness is all around . . .
and we must be sure
in the Gospel we’re sound.

We must use the time,
to find what is God’s will
we need to learn to wait
to trust and be still.

We need to understand,
God’s purposes and plans
we must choose to leave
everything, in His hands.

We need to ask God,
for His help in all things
we must let the Spirit lead
no matter, what life brings.

In this world today,
evilness surrounds us
we must redeem the time
with Godly wisdom and trust!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:16-17

” Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

  Wherefore be ye not unwise,

what the will of the Lord is.”

Forever Be ~

God's Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My mind is fixed,
on Thee my Lord
my heart, it too
is faithfully aboard.

Not man or death,
will separate us
the hope I have . . .
is because, You I trust.

Your peace flows,
through my veins
in my life . . .
You hold the reins.

I will follow,
wherever You take me
knowing in the shadows
Your light will  ~ forever be!

The Stairway to My Soul ~

Stairway by Laura Macky http://lauramacky.wordpress.com/

The stairway to my soul,
once was long and dark
to Satan, I was indeed
just another easy mark.

He hid in the shadows,
waiting around for me
for, God’s eternal light
he didn’t want me to see.

Each step I would climb,
he’d throw a fiery arrow
he knew how to keep me
off the straight and narrow.

Still, I kept my sights on,
the safe landing at the top
knowing his attacking me
would never end or stop.

The stairway to my soul,
now floods with God’s light
though, Satan’s still after me
I stand ready for the fight!

” Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench

The One True Light ~

Where there is Light CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes it’s impossible,
to keep the lights on inside
when there’s so much darkness
lurking on the outside.

Sometimes the truth,
doesn’t shine so very bright
when there’s so much gloom
that clouds up the sight.

Sometimes in the shadows,
the way seems to disappear
when there’s so much dread
lurking close and near.

But, the One True Light,
is always on ~ inside of us
when there’s so much doubt
in Jesus we can always trust!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 1:8-9
King James Version

“He was not that Light,
but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lighteth
every man that cometh into the world.”

A Prodigal Child ~

Black Sheep ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann Wikipedia
A hope renewed,
a joy emerges
when sin from soul
the Light purges.

The heart rejoices,
an answered prayer
no longer caught
in Satan’s snare.

A hope renewed,
a life forever changed
a prodigal child
no longer estranged.

A mind transformed,
the spirit set free
out from the darkness
comes a joyous glee.

A hope renewed,
a faith restored
a wandering one
now follows the Lord!

Exposed ~

God's Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In God’s light,
all things become clear
for it exposes the darkness
the things we should all fear.

It divulges the lies,
the secrets we hold onto
in the shadows it illuminates
the evil things we are into.

In God’s light,
sin cannot be concealed
for our every hidden thought
will be bared and revealed.

It separates the bad,
from what is honest and just
the day Light entered the world
it exposed the wickedness in us.

In God’s eternal light,
Jesus came to heal . . .
the darkness in our hearts
so His love  ~ He could reveal!

Redeemed ~

Redeemed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann/image CreationSwap

Delivered, I’ve been delivered,
from the bottomless pit
pulled out, plucked away
no longer stuck in sin’s grit.

Liberated, I’ve been liberated,
from Satan’s binding chains
cut loose, unleashed
no longer does sin entertain.

Rescued, I’ve been rescued,
from the evil one who harms
separated from, released
no longer one of Satan’s charms.

Redeemed, I’ve been forgiven,
from my sins I’ve been set free
all because of the day . . .
the Lamb of God died for me!

Crying out to God ~

pray-to-be-strong CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes, I cry out to God,
when being pushed to my limit
I pray asking Him to bring me
the full strength of His Spirit.

Whenever I am frighten,
when I’m knee-deep in my fears
I cry out for His light to shine
till the darkness disappears.

When my troubles hang on,
when they won’t let go of me
I cry out for His mighty power
so I can make Satan flee.

When illness comes my way,
when the pain keeps on growing
I cry out for His healing touch
in my life to keep flowing.

When sad and depressed,
when I become withdrawn
I cry out for His help
to keep on, pressing on.

Sometimes, crying out to God,
is so natural to do . . .
for when it becomes a habit
prayer becomes a part of you!

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

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

Rescued ~

isaiah-41-10-hand-of-god-god-says used with permission Darrell Creswell

He came with a tender heart,
extended a loving hand
from my own misery
He helped me up to stand.

He saw that I was lost,
how my life lacked direction
He knew in the darkness
I couldn’t see the separation.

I was soiled, I was stained,
with the grime of my sin
He knew that I needed
to be cleansed from within.

He shined His light on me,
broke through the hard crust
showed me how much I needed
in Him, to believe and trust.

He was the voice of hope,
His promises I could hear
to His voice I listened
till He took away my fear.

He came with a tender heart,
rescued me with His loving hand
He gave me the gift of grace
now by faith ~ I firmly stand!

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

He’s Looking!

The Eyes Of the Lord Searching used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

He gazes from above,
He’s looking to find
who is searching for Him
with all their heart and mind.

He sees not a one,
not one who is seeking
all have turned aside
no one for Him is looking.

He looks to the East,
their souls to Him are idle
He scans to the West
they are, their own idols.

He looks to the South,
no – not even one
He looks to the North
their hearts, He has none.

He looks and He looks,
all across the seas
but love for the Lord
isn’t in the hearts of these!

Free Indeed ~

he-set-the-captives-free CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He sets the captive free,
from the blindness within
releases the binds of guilt
the shamefulness of our sin.

He loosens the chains,
makes love out of hate
unshackles our burdens
eases the heavy weight.

He heals the backslidden,
freedom is now in sight
the yoke of oppression
we no longer have to fight

He scours out the darkness,
in His light, there is power
with grace and mercy
our lives, He empowers.

No longer are we slaves,
to man and his laws
now we come before God
with holy fear and awe.

Oh, what a privilege,
no longer are we bound
free indeed at last . . .
our liberty in Jesus found!

and the truth shall make you free.”

What God Do You Believe In?

idol

Some people don’t believe in God,
they can’t see the proof of His creation
they think all the beauty before them
came from the book of evolution.

Some people can’t be sure of God,
they think perhaps there may be one
but since they can’t see or feel Him
they think perhaps there may be none.

Some people don’t want to know God,
they love the darkness not His light
and upon their beds they plan
all the evil deeds they do in His sight.

Some think God and nature are one,
that He has no eyes, no ears, no face
they say He has no heart to love you
therefore, He can’t impart eternal grace.

Some people think they are God,
they don’t want to be told what to do
they are ruled by their pride and ego
and their arrogance they love to spew.

Some people think any God will do,
that one God is just as good as another
and no matter the religious path you take
it’s gonna lead us all to come together.

Some people believe in the one true God,
for He is the self-revealing God of man
and through the gift of salvation we believe
Jesus will finish ~ what He began!

No ~ Not Even One!

10 Comandments used with permission Creation Swap

Her heart was filled with lust,
her spirit was broken down
she was sought by the men
who lived all through her town.

She lived her life in darkness,
she knew she would be stoned
yet, she carried on in her sin
till her secret was made known.

They caught her red-handed,
right in the sinful act
and they brought her to Jesus
with all the details of the fact.

They asked Him to judge her,
to indict her for her sin
they even called Him their Master
in hopes a ruling they would win.

He knew she was an adulterous,
told the blood thirsty crowd so
then He said, “You without sin”
go ahead and cast the first throw.

They caught her in her sin,
they saw the crime she had done
but they could not condemn her
no ~ not even one!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 8: 7
King James Bible

“So when they continued asking Him, He
raised Himself up and said to them, “He
who is without sin among you, let him

Satan’s Holiday!

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

I don’t like Halloween,
I believe it’s Satin’s parade
and for all of his victims
my heart is very afraid.

I watch witches and vampires,
march up to my front door
looking for some candy
but I want to give them more.

I want to tell them about Jesus,
and the sweetness of His grace
I want to wipe the bloody smiles
from their evil-looking face.

I want to share God’s goodness,
give them a taste of heaven above
I want to reveal Satan’s tricks
and tell them about God’s love.

I don’t like Halloween,
for I know it’s Satan’s holiday
and I pray tonight from him
I can turn ~ all of them away!

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

Acts 26:18
King James Version

“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light,

Black Holes!

Light Blub by Bogdan Kulyk free photo #7887

Some Christians are like “Black Holes,”
they only draw in the light
they can’t see their own darkness
for they always think they are right.

They say they read and study,
their Bibles almost every day
but when no one is looking
their hearts from God are far away.

They believe they are righteous,
there isn’t anything they can’t do
but these “Black Holes” drain the light
right out of people like me and you.

They look as if they’re glowing,
from the wisdom they’ve acquired
and think everyone around them
should be . . . oh, so inspired.

Jesus called us to shed His light,
and His Spirit will show us how . . .
but these “Black Holes” in our lives
think their holier than thou!

Through it All ~

Through it All ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Through the mountain,
God led me
through the hardships
He supplied me.

Through the darkness,
God directed me
through the uncertainties
He never left me.

Though the high waters,
God brought me
through the sorrow
He comforted me.

Through the storms,
God protected me
through the heartache
He cared for me.

Through the desert,
God guided me
through the loneliness
He loved me.

Through the valley,
God carried me
through the grief
He shouldered me.

Through the wilderness,
God was with me
through all of my doubts . . .
He waited for me!

~~~~~~

“To him which led his people
through the wilderness:
for his mercy endureth for ever.”

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
