The Compassion of Jesus ~

The compassion of Jesus,
in all of its fullness . . .
is yours if you’ll grasp
onto all of His goodness.

For it is full of pity,
and loving concern
its merciful and gracious
asks naught in return.

It’ll give you confidence,
support you when weak
its healing and calming
gentle, caring and meek.

It comforts the bereaved,
it feeds the hungry
brings daily refreshment
to those who are thirsty.

It provides the rest,
for minds that agonize
with hearts laden down
it sees and sympathies.

The compassion of Jesus,
and all of its richness . . .
is yours to claim today
in all of its fullness!

Matthew 9:36

“But when he saw the multitudes,
he was moved with compassion on them,
because they fainted, and were scattered
abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”

Sticky Note From God ~04.29.18~


My Shepherd Knows Me ~

 

My Shepherd knows me,
and I know His voice
so I follow Him . . .
it is my choice.

When I need comfort,
on His staff I lean
so His peace and calm
my heart can glean.

When in a valley,
He guides me along
when I get weary
He makes me strong.

When a mountain,
I have to face
He provides me with
more of His grace.

The Lord’s my Shepherd,
He knows me oh, so well
I choose to follow Him . . .
so not to end up in hell!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:27

My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me.”

Sticky Note From God ~04.16.18~


Until My Last Breath ~

I trust the Lord,
each night long
for, I know He will
make me strong.

I trust the Lord,
for my every day
I know His light
will lead my way.

I trust the Lord,
with all my soul
for, I know it’s His
to keep and control.

I trust the Lord,
my life to Him I give
for, I know He knows
just how long I’ll live.

I’ll trust the Lord,
until my last breath
for I know in Him . . .
there is no death!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 14:8

“For whether we live,
we live unto the Lord;
and whether we die,
we die unto the Lord:
whether we live therefore,
or die, we are the Lord’s.”

Repent, Repent, Repent ~

What ever happened to,
the old man on the street . . .
holding his sign warning
everyone that he’d meet?

There was a truth to be told,
a new kingdom was to come
and he was not too worried
about offending anyone.

Most people mocked him,
but, he didn’t feel any shame
for he wasn’t seeking after
worldly fortune or fame.

He wasn’t a rich man,
in fact he looked quite poor
but the riches that he had
were eternal and forever more.

What happened to the old man,
whose message rang a bell?
Repent ~ Repent ~ Repent
or you’ll go straight to hell!

~~~~~~

Mark 1:15

“And saying, The time is fulfilled,
and the kingdom of God is at hand:
repent ye, and believe the gospel.

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.”

God Draws Those He Knows ~

God works,
in the hearts of man
He draws those
He knows He can.

God quickens,
the souls of the ones
who by faith will partake
in the grace of His Son.

God prepares,
the minds willing
to receive His hope
peace and healing.

God pulls in,
those He knows
who will follow
the way He shows.

God works,
in man’s heart
He knew who’d be His . . .
right from the start!

John 6:44

“No man can come to me,
except the Father
which hath sent me

raise him up

A Marathon To Run ~

I have entered,
a marathon
and my eyes
are set upon . . .

To run with grace,
and perseverance
to not let sin
be an interference.

To go for the goal,
to push, to strain
so my reward
I’ll be able to gain.

To be faithful,
to the very end
to with this world
not be its friend.

To stay the course,
to claw, to fight
to win the battle
with God’s might.

To be peculiar,
to finish well
lest for eternity
I’ll spend in hell.

 I’ve entered a marathon,
I am racing toward . . .
the day I will meet Jesus
my Savior and Lord!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1-2

“Wherefore seeing we
also are compassed about
with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth
so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience
the race that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,
despising the shame,
and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.

In His Presence ~

 

Lord, when in Your presence
there is joy in all its fullness
filled with eternal glee
and everlasting happiness.

Lord, when we communicate,
in the talks we have together
there is a fountain of hope
for all the storms we weather.

Lord, when You’re near me,
in the Spirit within my heart
from your presence I never
want to leave or part.

Lord, when in the morning,
we meet and jointly pray
I know You will show me
the Life, the Truth, the Way.

Lord, in Your presence,
I feel a peaceful glow . . .
each day I spend with You
the more my joy grows!

Sticky Note From God 01.30.18


A Path Into My Heart ~

One day I heard a voice,
calling out to me . . .
it said if you follow
I will set you free.

Free from the struggle,
free from the strife
for I will lead you
to find eternal life.

The voice that I heard,
at first seemed so far away
but, as I listened
it grew closer everyday.

From out of the wilderness,
my soul it was beckoning
saying I’ve prepared a way
worth your pursuing.

So I made a path,
for Jesus into my heart
and ever since that day
we have never been apart!

~~~~~

Luke 3:4

“As it is written in the book
of the words of Esaias the prophet,
saying, The voice of one crying
in the wilderness, Prepare ye
the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight.”

Proverbs 3:6

“In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.”

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!”

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!

“Who also hath made us able
ministers of the new testament;

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,

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!

for the gift
of His Son.

I thank God,

for His mercy
making all things new.

I thank God,

for the hope
of His Kingdom.

I thank God,

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!
