The Gift That Keeps Giving ~

the-gift-that-keeps-giving-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

You can give a gift,
without any misgiving
for, it’s the only one
that keeps on giving.

You needn’t spend,
one single dime
but, it will be a gift
that lasts a life-time.

It’s free for the giving,
so why don’t you try
giving the perfect gift
no one has to buy.

For, Jesus was born,
to save the lost
and for this to you
there is not a cost.

If you want to give a gift,
that just keeps giving
share the gift of salvation
among all who are living!

~~~~~~

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

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.”

A Perfect Storm Brewing ~

Storm Coming free photo by Danielle Hartland #1375 Creation Swap

There is a perfect storm,
brewing in the world right now
a coming of the time . . .
where every knee shall bow.

The tempest brings with it,
an assault on humanity
all because of its repulsion
and hatred for Christianity.

There is a perfect fury,
developing in the progress
a coming of the time . . .
when every mouth shall confess.

The terror the world rages,
on those who believe in God
will not be spared one ounce. . .
from the wrath of His rod.

There is a perfect outburst,
it’s all around the earth
new epidemic diseases
each day are giving birth.

The outbreaks carries death,
spreading agony all around
a cure for these illnesses
in the world can’t be found.

There is a perfect storm,
each day it’s more threatening
reminding us who believe . . .
judgment day is impending!

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

Romans 14:11

“For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord,
every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall confess to God.”

The Path of Grief Unknown ~

~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ the-lord-is-with-us-in-the-valley

I walk the path of grief,
in the valley of pain unknown
but Jesus is here with me . . .
so I don’t have to walk it alone.

The path has its ups and down,
the valley, its highs and lows
but Jesus is here with me . . .
in the midst of my sorrows.

The pathway of heartache,
is paved with dread and fear
but Jesus is here with me . . .
His grace is always near.

The days seem to creep along,
the nights are without end
but Jesus is here with me . . .
my Comforter, my Friend.

I walk the pathway of pain,
but I’m not walking it alone
for Jesus is here with me . . .
on the path, of grief unknown.

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4

” Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

What Causes so Much Sorrow?

o-death-where-is-thy-sting ~ CHRISTian poetry bydeborahann ~

What is behind the pain,
what causes so much sorrow
what makes someone not want . . .
to see the light of tomorrow?

What would cause anyone,
to take their very own life
what was their earthly burden
what was the crux of their strife?

What makes a person give up,
what causes them to lose all hope
why, oh why, was no one able to . . .
help them, to endure or cope?

Why would they rather die,
what was their fear and dread
what were their last thoughts
what images filled their head?

Why God ~ is there so much pain,
when will it all come to an end
why can’t everyone see Jesus . . .
as their ~ life-saving Friend?

” O death, where is thy sting?
O grave, where is thy victory?”

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!

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

Luke 1:79
King James Version

“To give light to them that sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Our Worldly Home ~

Going Home by Doug Shelton free photo from CreationSwap

In this, our worldly home,
there is misery and pain
we toil and we labor . . .
but, it’s all done in vain.

We fight off the weariness,
from being disillusioned
we try not to faint under
the constant confusion.

All of our grueling work,
never seems to pay off
at times at our own selves
we can’t help but to scoff.

We still have hunger pangs,
our thirst is never satisfied
all our disappointments
are eternally magnified.

We feel the throb of sorrow,
we know the sting of grief
from sickness and death
we know there’s no relief.

In this, our worldly home,
the curse of sin always reigns
but, in our heavenly home . . .
nothing will cause us any pain!

King James Version

“And there shall be no more curse:”

Pro-Life ~

bringlife-CHRISTian poetry by debroah ann

It is a choice,
we all have to make
we can choose life
or death can be our fate.

It’s evil verses good,
right over wrong
obedience or rebellion
dying weak or living strong.

We can choose to follow,
or go our own way
it’s up to us to decide
how we’ll live out our days.

We can be happy and joyful,
or be miserable and unfulfilled
we can be lost and forsaken
or choose to be Spirit filled.

It is a choice,
we all make in this life
we can be eternally blessed
or be cursed with endless strife.

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

Deuteronomy 30:19
King James Version

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:
therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”

Without Jesus ~

Without Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus died for you,
and He died for me
He died for the whole world
so our need for Him, we’d see.

He died for the miserable,
the hardened, the hopeless
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are helpless.

He died for the cruel,
the wicked, the guilty
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are filthy.

He died for the sorrowful,
the poor, the meek
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are weak.

He died for the troubled,
the worried, the weary
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are needy.

Jesus died for the lost,
and He died for the unsaved
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are depraved!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:8
King James Version

“But God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.

Borrowed Time !

time used with permission IBible Verses

I’m living, on borrowed time,
right now I am in my prime
don’t know how many more days
till this old body slips away.

God’s given me another year,
I had better get into gear
got myself some work to do
before my time here is through.

I’m going to need God’s strength,
to go run the final length
got to get my act together
so these last years I can weather.

My times are in Gods’ hands,
don’t know what are His exit plans
but I need to use my days wisely
can’t take even one second lightly.

We’re all living on borrowed time,
even if you’re not in your prime
we must sacrifice worldly things . . .
if we want what eternal life brings!

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

“He that loveth his life shall lose it;
and he that hateth his life in this world
shall keep it unto life eternal.”

Going Home ~

Going Home ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I know the valley is before me,
there’s nothing for me to fear
alone I’ll walk death’s path
but, God promises to be near.

His love shall be my comfort,
His strength will get me through
on the other side of the shadow
His light shines bright and true.

I will go to sleep in darkness,
awake to find eternal peace
His glory will bring me happiness
my joy will never end or cease.

The shadow looms ahead of me,
in a future time that is unknown
but, I haven’t anything to fear . . .
for, I’ll just be going home!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4
King James Version

“Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

What Causes Our Feet to Stumble?

What Causes Our Feet To Stumle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo CreationSwap

What causes our feet to stumble,
so quickly in these last days?
Was not Jesus our example,
on how to keep ourselves humble?

Did He not draw a line in the sand,
an expose to all men their sin?
Was He not the One who promised,
salvation would come from His hand?

Did He not still preach the Word,
to all those He came across?
Did He not hold them accountable,
for the truth that they had heard?

Did He not prepare the way,
for the Holy Spirit’s filling?
Did He not tell everyone to fear,
God’s wrath on judgment day?

Did He just give up,
and ask God to save Him from death?
Did He not continue on to drink,
the grace raised in His Father’s  cup?

Did He not face the cross,
with severe pain and suffering?
So then why do we think . . .
we should not undergo any loss?

What causes are feet to stumble,
so quickly in these last days?
Didn’t Jesus set for us an example,
on how to stay meek and humble?

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:8
King James Version

“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss
for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:
for whom I have suffered the loss of all things,
and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,”
