The Sweet Smell of Grace ~

Oh Lord, Your Word,
to me is a fragrant garden
for in it there is life . . .
and the sweet smell of pardon.

Let me find my delight,
in the aroma of Your favor
to its blood-sweetened nectar
may my heart forever savor.

Oh Lord, Your Word,
opens up like a scented bloom
its beauty catches my breath
like a bride meeting her groom.

Let me find such a love.
in the bouquet of Your grace
to its saving aroma
may my heart always embrace.

O Lord, Your Word,
like incense it takes over my senses
for the sweet scent of a dying Savior
has pardoned all of my offenses!

~~~~~~

Psalm 119:103

” How sweet are thy words
unto my taste!
yea, sweeter than
honey to my mouth!”

Sticky Note From God 01.10.18


The Remorseful Appeal ~

God hears our cries,
our sins He knows
He sees the tears
from our eyes flow.

God sees us weeping,
over our disgrace
He knows our need
for His merciful grace.

God listens to our sobs,
as His name we call
He watches the tears
from broken hearts fall.

God hears the outcry,
of our remorseful appeal
He knows by His stripes
our lives Jesus came to heal.

God understands our cries,
for His own Son, too wept
and with His in a bottle
all of our tears are kept!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:8

“Thou tellest my wanderings:
put thou my tears into
thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?”

Come and Consider ~

Come and Consider ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Come now and think,
let this sink in . . .
let us reason about
the effects of sin.

Contemplate with Me,
sin’s ramification
lets explore the meaning
of eternal damnation.

Let us mull this over,
where has sin gotten you
let’s consider together
what you need to do.

Envision with Me,
your sins forgiven
a life of peace and joy
with Me up in heaven.

Come now and think,
imagine a life sin free
that is what I can give
to all who love Me!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, and let us
reason together,
saith the Lord:
though your sins be
as scarlet,
they shall be as white
as snow;
though they be red
like crimson,
they shall be as wool.”

The Gospel of Life ~

Thank you Lord,
for the Gospel of Life
for giving hope
instead of strife.

For the light,
of Your love
for Your Spirit
from above.

Thank you Lord,
for true liberty
for over sin
having victory.

For forgiveness,
and Your grace
for the chance
to seek Your face.

Thank you Lord,
for life eternal
for saving me from . . .
hell’s infernal!

2 Corinthians 3:6

“Who also hath made us able

In My Bible ~

Somethings in my Bible I’ve found  . . .

the Word of Life
the end to strife
the mind of God
the road that’s broad
the state of man
the eternal plan
the heart of Jesus
the grace that frees us
the true Vine
the new wine
the gift of salvation
the doom of damnation
the way of hope
the how to cope
the river of pleasure
the everlasting treasure
the guidance needed
the laws to be heeded
the mercy-seat
the Savior’s feet
the schemes of the devil
the powers in high-levels
the Light
the fight
the path
the wrath
the Way
the escape
from
judgment day!

~~~~~~

2 Timothy 2:15

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Everlasting ~

Everything around us,
eventually will be gone
but the peace of Jesus
will eternally carry on.

For He’s everlasting,
His love is unchanging
His grace for each of us
is tirelessly unfailing.

All that we possess,
will someday vanish
but our hope in Jesus
will not ever perish.

For Jesus is the same,
yesterday and today
to His Father’s throne
He’s still the only doorway.

Everything around us,
will one day be but gone
but life everlasting . . .
we can joyfully count on!

I Look For The Light ~

I look for the Light,
I search it out
for in its truth
I never doubt.

I seek the Son,
I look for a ray
of hope to shine
upon my day.

I look for the Light,
I watch for a glimpse
of the promise
of eternal bliss.

I seek the Life,
I look for the path
leading away
from God’s wrath.

I seek the Light,
I search out the Way
the Fountain of Life
I follow each day!

Before I Met God ~

Before I met God,
I was a sinful waif
but, now He’s my Father
and keeps me safe.

He beckons to me,
to stay to Him near
and just like a Father
He calms my fear.

My Father loves me,
like no other can
for He has for me
an eternal plan.

He watches over me,
cares where I go
when I need guidance
my Father will show.

Before I meet God,
by sin I was defiled
but now He calls me . . .
His dear beloved child!

I’ll enter His kingdom.

In Your house Lord,

so, for the rest of my days
I’ll faithfully follow Thee.

For, the world is full darkness,
but, You have brought me Light

are now always in my sight.

for my heart is set
on the peace He’ll bring.

He is my saving Light,

Our Life-Savior ~

Oh, what a Savior,
oh, what a safeguard
Jesus became for all
our heavenly lifeguard.

When to Jesus we come,
repentant and contrite
He’ll wash all our sins
from crimson to white.

Oh, what a Savior,

forgiveness of sin
is our security.

God’s incredible mercy,
Christ’s magnificent grace
is now for every heart
to eternally embrace.

Oh, what a life-line.
oh, what a life-preserver
for, Jesus truly is . . .

Sticky Note From God 08.11.17


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.”

Peace Everlasting ~

One day the peace of God,
will be everlasting . . .
one day our cares on Jesus
we will not need to be casting.

One day eternal joy,
will replace our sadness
one day all of our tears
will be ones of gladness.

One day God’s mercy,
will no longer be needed
one day our every fear
will finally be defeated.

One day our true hope,
will be revealed to us
one day we will see
the God in whom we trust.

One day the peace of God,
will be truly everlasting . . .
and in our hearts and minds
it’ll no longer be surpassing!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication
with thanksgiving
let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Like An Eagle ~

Renewed like an eagle,
my strength restored
the closer I sweep in
to Jesus, my Lord.

He gives me courage,
to go the distance
gives me His strength
when I meet resistance.

Just like an eagle,
the clouds I climb above
rising over my troubles
on the strength of His love.

I have the fortitude,
to  look into the eye
of each raging storm
that passes me by.

He renews my faith,
my trust He restores
until the day like an eagle
into heaven I soar!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

When The Thief Comes ~

When the thief comes,
it could be day or night
for all he cares about
is stealing Jesus’ light.

He has up his sleeve,
a life gripping plan
for, he wants to snatch you
right out of God’s hand.

His purpose is clear,
in hell he wants you
for, he’s out to destroy
your heavenly view.

He will discourage you,
he wants you defeated
for, he wants you to feel
you have been cheated.

When the thief comes,
you may be awake or asleep
for, all satan cares about . . .
is stealing Jesus’ sheep!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:10

“The thief cometh not,
but for to steal,
and to kill,
and to destroy:

I am come that they
might have life,
and that they might
have it more abundantly.”

Do Not Love The World ~

Do not love the world,
nor the things in or of it
for, to your soul . . .
there’s no lasting benefit.

For, the world’s full of pride,
promoting fleshly lust
to its godless customs
you mustn’t ever adjust.

Do not become a part,
of the world’s ways
do not on its sinful desires
let your heart set its gaze.

For, if you do you’ll find,
it’s so easy to conform
as the world’s proven to be
satan’s earthly platform.

Do not love the world,
for it is perishing . . .
there is nothing in it
worth you cherishing!

~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life,
is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.”

I Love Jesus ~

I love Jesus,
this I can’t deny
His love for me
I’ll forever rely.

I trust Jesus,
He trusts me . . .
He’s my anchor
on life’s stormy sea.

I delight in Jesus,
He delights in me
one day in heaven
we are going to be.

I believe in Jesus,
He believes in me
He gives me faith
in what I can’t see.

I’m a friend of Jesus,
He’s befriended me
no greater love . . .
will I ever see!

~~~~~

John 15:13

” Greater love hath
no man than this,
that a man lay down
his life for his friends.”

I AM The Resurrection ~

I am the Resurrection,
I am the Life . . .
I am the One who took
upon Myself your strife.

Though someday you’ll die,
eternal life to you I give
if for your sins
you believe I will forgive.

I am the One chosen,
I am my Father’s favor
I am the Christ Jesus
your Lord and Savior.

One day in heaven,
together we will be
but, you must have faith
My Father sent Me.

I am the Resurrection,
new life I bring you
but, you must believe
in Me, for this to be true!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 11:25-26

“Jesus said unto her,
I am the resurrection,
and the life:
he that believeth in me,
though he were dead,
yet shall he live:

And whosoever
liveth and believeth

in me shall never die.
Believest thou this?”
