Living In the Light ~

Living in The Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When you live in the light,
of eternity . . .
you live a life of hope
peace and serenity.

When you live in anticipation,
of Jesus’ return . . .
you live with conviction
care and concern.

When you live in expectation,
of a future Kingdom
you live with godliness . . .
righteousness and wisdom.

When you live in hopefulness,
of a coming glorious day . . .
you live with diligence
mindfulness to God’s way.

When you live in the light,
of eternity . . .
you live a life of power
hope and certainty!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:11-14

“Seeing then that all these things
shall be dissolved, what manner of
persons ought ye to be in all holy
conversation and godliness,

Looking for and hasting unto the coming
of the day of God, wherein the heavens
being on fire shall be dissolved, and
the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Nevertheless we, according to his promise,
look for new heavens and a new earth,
wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look
for such things, be diligent that ye may
be found of him in peace, without spot,
and blameless.”

Lord, Show Me Your Glory ~

I Want To See God's Glory ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, show me Your glory,
let Your goodness reveal
mercy that’s everlasting
ceaseless, undying and real.

Show me Your brilliance,
a glimpse of Your light
where there’ll be no need
for daytime or night.

Lord, show me Your glory,
let Your perfection shine
let me see paradise
heavenly and divine.

Show me Your beauty,
let Your kindness expose
the rivers of joy
where peacefulness flows.

Lord, show me Your glory,
let Your holiness reveal
Your coming kingdom
for I know it’ll be surreal!

My Bucket List ~

 My Bucket List ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo Wikimedia

Lord, I’ve got me a bucket,
filled with things for me to do
so the world may know. . .
why I am so in love with You.

The first thing inside of it,
means an awful lot to me . . .
for, I want it to be Your image
in me, that other people see.

The next thing that it holds,
is my desire to lead souls to You
it’s the most important thing
in my bucket, for me to do.

There’s more in my bucket,
that needs acknowledgment
for, I want to be to others
a source of encouragement.

I want to use the gifts given me,
to lead and light the way
to let the fruit of the Your Spirit
on my soul, continue to sway.

I want to keep on growing,
no matter how old I get
I want to be just like You . . .
to love, forgive and to forget.

I want to share my faith
the reasons why, You I trust
I want to live a Spirit filled life
powerful, mighty and robust.

I want to sing to You my praise,
in the shadow of my life . . .
I want to help others through
the misery of their own strife.

I want to grow in grace,
in the knowledge of Your will
I want to help show others . . .
how to trust and be still.

Lord, I’ve got me a bucket,
full of things for me to do
before I leave this earth . . .
to spend eternity with You!

Redeeming the Time ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Redeeming the Time~ IBible Verses

What is a day,
what is it worth to you
how will you spend it
what with it, will you do?

Twenty-four little hours.
a bunch of tiny minutes
and a lot of wee seconds
crammed right into it.

Doesn’t seem like a lot,
of time, now does it
doesn’t feel like a lot
into it, you can fit?

But each moment given,
we’ll one day give account
so make sure for Jesus . . .
you make each second count.

What is a day worth,
think about it for a minute . . .
then redeem every second
for eternity, you’ll find in it!

Trust Fund ~

trustlord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Got me a trust fund,
use it every day
I can always count on it
especially when I pray.

God is the grantor,
His assets are all mine
it’s just like having
an eternal credit line.

I withdraw from it often,
but I never take a loss
for the rates are based on
the finished work of the cross.

Jesus is my inheritance,
I trust Him with all my heart
for I am the beneficiary
of the grace that He imparts.

My trust fund is secure,
the dividends keep growing
I am very confident  . . .
to heaven ~ I’ll be going!

Who Can Comprehend?

Who Can Comprehend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Who can comprehend,
this love that is world-wide
who can grasp onto
this call to be His bride?

Who can comprehend,
a love that is without end
who can figure out
the true passion of a Friend?

Who can comprehend,
love going into eternity
who can stretch their hearts
into this place of serenity.

Who can comprehend,
love reaching deep within
who can see the real need
for forgiveness of their sin.

Who can comprehend,
the love God has for us
who can fully understand it . . .
those who completely trust!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:18-19
King James Version

“May be able to comprehend with all saints
what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge, that ye might be
filled with all the fulness of God.

My Friend and Savior ~

absolute-surrender CHRIStina poetry by deborah ann

Oh Lord, I long to know You,
to feel the wonder of Your love
to marvel in Your grace
so to be called, Your beloved.

May my heart be filled,
with praise and adoration
for You, my Friend and Savior
are the hope of my salvation.

Oh, Lord may I be fruitful,
as I tell others of Your kingdom
may I lead and show the way
to everlasting peace and freedom.

May my heart be surrendered,
to the call You have for me
may I gladly submit to Your will
as I place all my trust in Thee.

Oh, Lord I yearn to follow You,
to make You my priority . . .
give to You my heart and soul
resign over, complete authority!

Seek ~

Seek and you shall find,
whenever you’re in doubt
turn to the Good Book
to find the answers out.

For in the Bible you’ll see,
what God wants of you
seek and you shall find
His light shining through.

Seek and you shall find,
love that is everlasting
when in uncertain times
all else is so contrasting.

Come to the throne of grace,
God is always the same
seek and you shall find
the power in His name.

Seek and you shall find,
the answers to your prayers
then find rest in knowing
Jesus has all your cares.

For Jesus came to save you,
from daily fear and strife
seek and you shall find
for yourself eternal life!

“And ye shall seek me,

This Hope ~

Thy Kingdom COme used with perrmission IBible Verses

There’s a hope that is perfect,
it doesn’t rust or fade
it never spoils, won’t perish
it is not man-made.

This hope is based on fact,
it’s not just wishful thinking
this hope is the Gospel truth
and will have you rethinking.

This hope holds the promise,
of an expectation yet to come
in a house with many rooms
in our Father’s kingdom.

This hope isn’t a work of fiction,
it comes with an eternal plan
Jesus has prepared a place
for every child, woman and man.

This hope is in our Savior,
it is given to all who believe
and it is yours to behold
if  Jesus ~ you’ll receive!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:4-5
King James Version

“To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,
reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by
the power of God through faith unto
salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

On the Wings of Grace ~

BY Grace3used with permission IBible Verses

On the wings of God’s grace,
I can soar above all things
rise higher than the troubles
this life so often brings.

I can face my biggest foe,
confront my largest fear
for on the wings of grace
my Lord is always near.

I can scale every mountain,
swoop over the roughest sea
there isn’t any situation
where grace will not carry me.

I can climb each obstacle,
Satan places in front of me
for on the wings of grace
from His snares, I am free.

I can fly across the desert,
till I find a heavenly oasis
for I am flying on the wings
of my Lord’s eternal graces!

Crucified for Me ~

Into Our Death used with permission IBible Verses

Crucified for me,
for my sinful self
oh, how in His death
there is eternal wealth.

Jesus died for me,
so that I might live
all of my transgressions
He came to forgive.

His death is my life,
in it I became new
for in Him . . .
I am crucified too.

Dying everyday,
to the greed and lust
in the world I no longer
pledge my faith or trust.

Grace and mercy,
are now my hearts anthem
ever since Jesus became
my souls eternal ransom!

~~~~~~~

Galatians 2:20
King James Version

“I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live;

yet not I, but Christ
liveth in me:

and the life which I now live
in the flesh
I live by
the faith of the Son of God,

who loved me, and gave
himself for me.”

Without Christ ~

Without CHRIST ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I have a nice home,
a car, a computer and a TV
but, without Christ . . .
what do they really get me?

I have a family room,
one to rumpus all around
but, without Christ . . .
I’d never be heaven bound.

I have sterling silver,
crystal adorns my shelf
but, without Christ . . .
I’m still my tarnished, sinful self.

I’ve many wonderful things,
and an awful lot of stuff
but, without Christ . . .
in this world it’s not enough.

I can travel abroad,
I can get from here to there
but, without Christ . . .
who really cares to where.

I have family all around me,
many people I call my friend
but, without Christ . . .
my life, will come to a godless end.

I been given a lot in this life,
that can be seen externally
but, without Christ. . .
what would I have eternally?

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

1 John 2:15-17
King James Version

“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”

If Today I Met Jesus ~

If Today I Met Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If today I were to meet Jesus,
and my life here came to an end
I would be so excited
to finally meet my eternal Friend.

I would run up to Him,
and look into His face
I would tell Him I’m so thankful
for His endless supply of grace.

I would drop down to my knees,
and worship my everlasting King
I would shout hallelujah . . .
and my praises I would sing.

I would leap and jump with joy,
as soon as my feet hit the floor
I would be forever grateful
He opened to me heaven’s door.

If today I were to meet Jesus,
and I were to see my eternal Friend
I know that I would be in paradise
and my bliss would never end.

~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
King James Version

“For the Lord himself shall descend from
heaven with a shout, with the voice of the
archangel, and with the trump of God: and
the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive and remain shall be
caught up together with them in the clouds, to
meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever
be with the Lord.”

My Hope ~

Hope Restored by Michael McFatridge free photo #5529

My hope doesn’t disappoint,
it never lets me down
my hope I can count on
I know it’s always around.

My hope is full of stillness,
it brings calmness and peace
my hope is everlasting
for it will never cease.

My hope is perpetual,
forever it goes on
my hope is never-ending
no way will it be gone.

My hope is in the promises,
that I find in His Word
my hope is my salvation
from the truth I have heard.

My hope has no real measure,
it can’t be tied up or bound
my hope is inexhaustible
it can always be found.

My hope fills me with power,
it is strong and steadfast
my hope is in the Lord Jesus
and into eternity it will last!

Survivor!

Locked and Chaned Doors by Balazas Toth free photo @9193

I’m a survivor,
I beat the odds
no longer trapped
in Satan’s claws.

Freed from evil,
the effects of sin
ever since Jesus
in my life came in.

Released from hell,
in that awful pit
no longer stuck
in the mire and grit.

He took my sins,
carried them away
then in my heart
He came to stay.

Loosened my soul,
from the ugly stain
opened heaven’s door
unlocked the chain.

I’m a survivor,
Jesus saved me
from sin’s darkness
I am set free!

Lord, keep me loyal,
in my pursuit to follow after Thee

Lord, keep me on the vine,

My Days Are The Lords

Lord, You know my days,
the number of my years
You know the exact time
that my life will be here.

I pray I will use it wisely,
giving honor to Your name
I ask that You will help me
not to bring You any shame.

Lord, You have given me,
this place for me to dwell
You’ve given me a chance
to choose heaven over hell.

I pray I’ll be a good steward,
in the seasons allotted me
I ask for Your guidance
so in eternity, we can be.

Lord, You understand me,
and know my every side
You’ve given me Your light
to be my constant guide.

I pray I will not falter,
on the narrowest of ways
I ask that You will lead me
all my nights and all my days.

Lord, let me not stray,
from You while I am here
for You are my Shepherd
who I trust with all my years.

Choices ~

Choices ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~
Every day we make choices,
what to eat, to wear, to do
everyday there are options
God places in front of you.

Every day there are decisions,
influencing our daily life
some will bring endless joy
others only eternal strife.

Every day we must decide,
the things to us that matter
some make our faith stronger
others causes it to scatter.

Every day we can pick out,
which path or road to take
some are straight and narrow
others lead to the wide gate.

Every day we need to select,
where to lay up our treasure
each new day we need to fix on
what will bring God pleasure.

Every day we make choices,
some we win, some we lose
every day there are options
will it be Jesus, whom we choose?
