From The Get-Go ~

From the beginning,
God loved His creation
it brought to His heart
pure joy and elation.

But, then one evil day,
satan into it entered in
introducing to man
temptation and sin.

From the get-go,
man always had a choice
to walk with God
or listen to satan’s voice.

But man chose to follow,
the ways of the devil
bringing grief to God’s heart
on every single level.

From the beginning,
God knew the mind of man
so He gave His only Son . . .
to fulfill salvation’s plan!

~~~~~~

Genesis 3:2-4

And the woman said unto the serpent,
We may eat of the fruit of the trees
of the garden:

But of the fruit of the tree which is
in the midst of the garden,
God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it,
neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman,
Ye shall not surely die:

Genesis 6:6

And it repented the Lord
that he had made man on
the earth, and it grieved
him at his heart.

The Bible Is Like A Mirror ~

The Bible is like a mirror,
it reflects yourself so true
it shows all the hidden sin
yet living inside of you.

But if you never read it,
how will you ever glean
the areas in your life
God still needs to make clean.

The Bible is like a mirror,
it reflects your heart so true
it shows what is keeping
God disconnected from you.

But if you don’t study it,
God cannot lead or direct
you to see how sinfulness
has an everlasting effect.

The Bible is like a mirror,
His reflection should be in you
but, you must apply it . . .
in your life ~ for this to be true!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 3:2

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we
shall be: but we know that, when he
shall appear, we shall be like him;
for we shall see him as he is.

a time to thank God . . .

Treasures in Jars ~

Treasures in jars,
might be made of clay
but, when they are pressed
close to God they stay.

Oh, they may crack,
but, they will not weaken
for treasures in jars . . .
in God’s power believe in.

Treasures in jars,
they do not crumble
for God makes them
strong and yet humble.

Oh, they may get crushed,
but, they don’t fall apart
for treasures in jars . . .
trust God with all their heart.

Treasures in jars,
are not ever perplexed
for their hope in God
is eternally transfixed!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:7-9

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels,

that the excellency of
the power may be of God,

and not of us.

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;

we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted,
but not forsaken;

cast down,
but not destroyed;

How Much Longer God ~

Sometimes the reality,
of a world gone haywire
takes away all my joy
in the hairs of its crossfire.

For with all the evil I see,
and all the horror I hear
all I can do is ask . . .
why Jesus, aren’t You here?

Sometimes the truth,
of a world gone amok
takes away my peace
leaving me awestruck.

For with all the tragedy,
the death and the disasters
I can’t help but to wonder . . .
why Lord, can’t You come faster?

Sometimes the realness,
of a world gone roughshod
all I can do is pray and ask  . . .
how much longer, oh my God!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 10:1

Why standest thou afar off,
O Lord?
why hidest thou thyself
in times of trouble?

Father, How Can I Show My Gratitude ~

Father, how can I show my gratitude,
my gratefulness for all You’ve done
how can I show my thankfulness
for the eternal gift of Your Son?

What can I do to repay You,
for the kindness You’ve shown me
what can I give back to You
so my appreciation You can see?

How can I render my thanksgiving,
the sense of my true gratification
how can I ever prove to You
the full delight of my satisfaction?

Father, how can I show my gratitude,
my gratefulness for all You do
how can I show my thankfulness
if I am not always praising You?

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:17

And whatsoever ye do
in word or deed, do all
in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God
and the Father by him.

Take the Plunge ~

Go ahead,
dive right in
be washed
from your sin

Take the plunge,
into the waters
that are Living
without borders.

Go ahead,
jump into the Well
save yourself
form the pit of hell.

Take the leap,
into the Spring
life everlasting
to you it’ll bring.

Go ahead,
drink thereof . . .
the Living Waters
of God’s love!

~~~~~

John 4:10-11

Jesus answered and said unto her,
If thou knewest the gift of God,
and who it is that saith to thee,
Give me to drink; thou wouldest
have asked of him, and he would
have given thee living water.

The woman saith unto him,
Sir, thou hast nothing to
draw with, and the well is deep:
from whence then hast thou
that living water?

John 4:14

But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall never
thirst; but the water that I shall
give him shall be in him a well of
water springing up into everlasting life.

Grace Is A Mender ~

Grace is a mender,
of flaws running deep
it is a collector
of the tears we weep.

Grace is a healer,
of vessel’s broken
it is a free gift
God set into motion.

Grace is a liberator,
of evil and oppression
it is a deliver
of earthly transgression.

Grace is a giver,
of eternal redemption
it is a perfecter
of faith and salvation.

Grace is God’s mercy
pity and favor . . .
grace is God’s free gift
of Jesus our Savior!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that
not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

Not of works,
lest any man should boast.

Eager Heart’s Waiting ~

May the love of God,
our eager heart’s still . . .
may we have His peace
waiting for His will.

For what He promised,
is yet to be done . . .
as we anticipate
the coming of His Son.

May the love of God,
our heart’s safely keep
as one of His own
beloved and dear sheep.

For what He has spoken,
will surely come true
when Jesus returns
one day for me and you.

May the love of God,
our patient heart’s fill . . .
as we eagerly await
may His calm they still!

~~~~~~~

And [may] the Lord direct

If Today You Hear ~

If today you hear,
God’s beseeching voice
it will cause His people
to cheer and rejoice.

For one more sheep,
in His green pasture
is one more soul
satan can’t capture.

If today you heed,
Jesus’ invitation
you’ll receive the gift
of eternal salvation.

For one more person,
in His flock gleaned
is one more life
from satan redeemed.

If today you pray,
for God your heart to heal
one more rejoicing knee . . .
to Him will bow and kneel!

~~~~~~

Psalm 95:6-7

O come, let us worship
and bow down: let us
kneel before the Lord
our maker.

For he is our God;
and we are the people
of his pasture, and the
sheep of his hand.
To day if ye will
hear his voice,

My Forever Friend ~

My Forever Friend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann free to use

Some people have friends,
they call them their best
but, I have only One . . .
who gives me perfect rest.

With me He never leaves,
by my side He remains
whatever I need of Him
He never complains.

Some people have friends,
they call them their pals
but, I know of only One . . .
whose love never fails.

With me He provides,
all that I could want
my requests of Him
never come back to haunt.

Some people have friends,
they call them whatever . . . .
but, Jesus is my Friend
who will be there forever!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 18:24

A man that hath friends
must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that
sticketh closer than a brother.

The Color Of Things Coming ~

I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
drifting on the breeze of Autumn
floating idly to the ground.

They lay in all their splendor,
till rake piles them knee-high
for eye to see and foot to crush
before they wither away and die.

Fall reminds me of the colors,
of the things forthcoming . . .
when Jesus with a trump
declares He is returning.

His eyes will see those waiting,
eagerly for His return
while He crushes under foot
those who gave Him no concern.

As I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
I pray everyday I can turn . . .
just one sinner’s heart around!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 13:30

Let both grow together until
the harvest: and in the time
of harvest I will say to the reapers,
Gather ye together first the tares,
and bind them in bundles to burn
them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Hebrews 9:28

So Christ was once offered to bear
the sins of many; and unto them
that look for him shall he appear
the second time without sin
unto salvation.

The Face of Autumn ~

Lord it is time again,
to see the season change
to watch as Your beauty
the landscape rearrange.

So with wonder and awe,
I watch the face of Autumn
alter it’s many colors
ending Summer’s blossom.

Lord, it is time again,
to harvest the seeds sown
to see which ones for You
have ripened, matured and grown.

So with a grateful heart,
I gather up Autumn’s fruit
which over the span of time
have in You taken root.

Lord, it is time again,
for me to sit and reflect
how I can help to reach . . .
all those who You still reject!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:37-38

Then saith he unto his disciples,
The harvest truly is plenteous,
but the labourers are few;

Pray ye therefore the Lord
of the harvest, that he will
send forth labourers into
his harvest.

Jeremiah 8:20

The harvest is past,
the summer is ended,
and we are not saved.

The Lion and The Lamb ~

 

One day Judah’s Lion,
will break open seven seals
one day the wrath of God
He will at long last reveal.

One day the Lamb of God,
from each scroll will read
for worthy is He . . .
who was crucified on a tree.

One day Judah’s Lion,
will be crown King of Kings
one day the world will know
the peace that He brings.

One day God’s precious Lamb,
who died for the sins of mankind
will return to conquer Satan
and his enemies for the last time.

One day the Lion of Judah,
God’s sacrificial Lamb once slain
will from heaven’s glorious throne . . .
the whole world will ~ forever reign!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 5:5-7

And one of the elders saith unto me,
Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe
of Judah, the Root of David, hath
prevailed to open the book, and to
loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst
of the throne and of the four beasts,
and in the midst of the elders,
stood a Lamb as it had been slain,
having seven horns and seven eyes,
which are the seven Spirits of God
sent forth into all the earth.

And he came and took the book out
of the right hand of him that sat
upon the throne.

Mercy and Truth Merges ~

Mercy and truth have merged,
redemption found on the cross
righteousness and peace kissed
God’s justice cleanses the dross.

Truth was raised from the earth,
from death came resurrection
eternal life rose from the grave
bringing to God reconciliation.

Love looked down from above,
forgiveness imparted to each soul
hope shall make way for His steps
so in Him all can be made whole.

For those who are beholden,
to the Life, Truth and the Way
will jubilantly celebrate
with Jesus in heaven one day.

Mercy and truth came together,
righteousness and peace have kissed
all who by grace through faith believe
will have glorious, eternal bliss!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 85:10-12

“Mercy and truth
are met together;

righteousness and peace
have kissed each other.

Truth shall spring
out of the earth;

and righteousness shall
look down from heaven.”

The Righteous Hands Of God ~

God hands are righteous,
mighty and powerful
they’re loving and kind
and oh, so merciful.

His hands laid out,
the earth’s foundation
preparing the way
for eternal salvation.

His hands upholds,
those who are afraid
so they needn’t be
fearful or dismayed.

His hands are strong,
they provide protection
to those who seek
wisdom and direction.

His hands are etched,
with the names of those
who through grace by faith
redemption in Jesus choose.

Out of God’s hands,
no one can be snatched
for onto our souls . . .
His fingers are latched!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help
thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the
right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 49:16

Behold, I have graven thee
upon the palms of my hands; t
hy walls are continually before me.

John 10:28

And I give unto them eternal life;
and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them

Finishing Well ~

Whatever you begin,
finish it well . . .
let the power of God
rise in you and swell.

Be faithful all the way,
as you run the race
hold on to the hope
of the Gospel of grace.

Whatever you start,
finish it well . . .
let the Holy Spirit
your fears quell.

Trust and believe,
Jesus is your strength
to go the distance
no matter the length.

Whatever you do,
finish it joyfully . . .
so you may complete
the course triumphantly!
~~~~~~~~

Acts 20:24

But none of these things move me,
neither count I my life dear
unto myself, so that I might
finish my course with joy,
and the ministry, which I have
received of the Lord Jesus,
to testify the gospel of
the grace of God.

What’s In Your Heart ~

What’s in your heart,
what idol has it occupied
what’s causing God . . .
to be small and minimized?

Do you overtly worship,
adore and love it
is it filling up the space
of the Holy Spirit?

What’s on your mind,
what thoughts do you greet
what’s causing Jesus . . .
to take a back seat?

Do you openly fantasize,
on worldly pleasure
is it taking the place
of your eternal treasure?

What is in your heart,
what is on your mind
what is satan using . . .
to keep your soul blind?

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.

My Cup Is Full ~

I’ve got a cup,
it’s fills with more grace
each time I seek
God’s almighty face.

He pours into it,
mercy anew
upon morning’s
dewy debut.

I’ve got a cup,
it overflows
the more God
I get to know.

He dispenses into it,
faith, joy and peace
everlasting assurance
that’ll never cease.

I’ve got a cup,
full of hope’s promise
it warms my soul . . .
with eternal solace!

~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

No Greater Love Known ~


No greater love than this,
that Jesus would die for me
no greater Friend . . .
in this world will I ever see.

No greater love will come,
than the one He freely gives
no greater joy . . .
knowing my Savior lives.

No greater love is there,
from a Father to a Son
no greater promise . . .
His will shall been done.

No greater love will I find,
than the one Jesus gives
no greater hope . . .
knowing my sins He forgives.

No greater love than this,
to the world from their King
no greater comfort . .
than the peace He will bring!

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have
everlasting life.”

No One But Jesus ~

No one but Jesus,
can save you . . .
no one besides
can you go to.

No one else,
can deliver you . . .
no one other
love is this true.

No one but Jesus,
can offer liberty . . .
no one otherwise
can end your misery.

No one else,
just Jesus alone . . .
no one other
your sin’s can atone.

No, not one,
no god made by man
can save you . . .
only Jesus can!

We All Thirst ~

We all thirst,
we all want more . . .
more hope, more love
we all yearn for.

We all need,
spiritual refreshment
we all need in Jesus
to make an investment.

We all thirst,
we all want more
more joy, more bliss
we all hunger for.

We all need,
to come to the well
where in Living Water
Jesus’ Spirit dwells.

We all have,
deep burning desires
but only Jesus’ love . . .
can quench the fires!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 4:13-14

Jesus answered and said unto her,
Whosoever drinketh of this water
shall thirst again:

But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall
never thirst; but the water that
I shall give him shall be in him
a well of water springing up
into everlasting life.
