After God’s Own Heart ~

I want to have a heart,
after God’s own heart
so that into it . . .
His mercy He’ll impart.

I want to be humble,
reverent and respectful
I want to be for my sins
repentant and regretful.

I want to be trusting,
fearless and faithful
I want to be obedient
thankful and grateful.

I want to be considerate,
loving and compassionate
I want to be devoted
fervent and passionate.

I want a heart like David’s,
one willing to go and do
anything that God asks . . .
I want to be loyal and true!

~~~~~~~

Acts 13:22

“And when he had removed him,
he raised up unto them David
to be their king; to whom also
he gave their testimony, and said,
I have found David the son of Jesse,
a man after mine own heart,
which shall fulfil all my will.”

What Love Is ~

What is Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Love is patient,
love is kind
love doesn’t have
a haughty mind,

It will not boast,
it is not proud
it doesn’t stand
out in a crowd.

Love is pleasant,
it doesn’t envy
it is cheerful
always friendly.

It’s full of joy,
mercy and favor
it is faithful
never a traitor.

Love is calm,
it is peaceful
never angry
always grateful.

It’s brings light,
rays of hope
love helps others
how to cope.

Love is patient,
love is kind
for love has . . .
a forgiving mind!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

“Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself,
is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own, is not easily
provoked, thinketh no evil;”

I’ve Got Courage ~

I've Got Courage ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, I’m not focusing,
in on my fear . . .
instead I’ll center on
knowing You are near.

I’m going to be strong,
instead of being fretful
I’m going to have faith
bold and not fearful.

Lord, I’m going to be calm,
instead of being anxious
in You, I’ll stay relaxed
not jittery or nervous.

I’m not going to be,
afraid of anything
instead I will trust
You with everything.

Lord, I’ve got me courage,
powerful and true . . .
for You have given me
strength to wait on You!

~~~~~~

Psalm 27:14

“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage,

Faith Restored ~

Come to the Cross ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Never Walk Away - IBible Verse

Abide in the Lord and remain,
don’t wander away from Him . . .
let not the world tempt you
or cause you to fall into sin.

Endure in the Lord and last,
don’t quit or ever give up . . .
cling to Him with all your might
drink of the mercy in His cup.

Wait on the Lord and stay,
don’t wander from His Word
continue to believe in His love

Abide in the Lord and preserve,
don’t lose your heavenly reward
return if you’ve fallen away
so your faith – can be restored!

Eternal Perks ~

 

hopeeternal-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Living a godly life,
is not very popular today
it’s getting much harder
to follow the true and righteous way.

It can be very lonely,
to stand up for what is right
when you speak the Gospel truth
it becomes a lifelong fight.

It takes determination,
some good old fashion discipline
when you love the things of God
you’ll be deemed a simpleton.

Many evil things in this world,
are vying for our attention
but, we must strive to do good
so to leave a faithful impression.

It is hard to live a godly life,
it takes a lot of work . . .
but, living a life pleasing to God
comes with eternal perks!

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

Titus 2:11-13
King James Version

“For the grace of God that bringeth
salvation hath appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness
and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of the great
God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;”

Run Away Bride!

Run away Bride used with permission Creation Swap

Where has Your church gone,
where are Your chosen ones?
Your name is no longer,
on their lips and tongues.

Where is their devotion,
where are their words of praise?
On their lips and tongues,
their love for You, they don’t raise.

Where have all the faithful gone,
where are they now?
On their lips and tongues,
they no longer keep their vow.

Where are the godly teachers,
who speak against immorality?
One their lips and tongues,
they preach a new-age reality.

Where has Your bride gone,
to where has it run off?
On their lips and tongues,
Your holy Word they now scoff!

In This Changing World ~

In This Changing World ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, in this changing world,
where nothing stays the same
I found You to be faithful
when I call upon Your name.

Every day there’s so much,
that is being compromised
but, Your unfailing love
You have never modified.

No matter where I go,
I find things a bit strange
but, Your steadfast love
never seems to change.

So many people now,
are  making concessions
but, Your trustworthiness
I never have to question.

Lord, in this changing world,
that’s spinning out of control
I find Your faithfulness . . .
to be the anchor for my soul!

A Trusting Heart ~

Trust the Lord with all Your Heart used with pemission IBible VErses

A trusting heart knows God,
it is filled with His peace
it has a calmness deep within
that it knows will never cease.

It is full of worship and praise,
is triumphant in all its ways
it is devoted and committed
honoring God with all its days.

It is steadfast and faithful,
it has not a wavering beat
it rises in the morning
so it’s Savior it can meet.

It is happy and content,
joyfulness flows throughout
it harbors not a fear
and casts away all doubt.

A trusting heart knows God,
is always within its reach
it has a calmness deep within
because it is full of His peace!

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own

The Good Shepherd ~

The Lord is My Shepherd used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I’ve everything that is good
for He tenderly cares for me
as a Good Shepherd should.

He keeps me from danger,
protects my every step
He won’t let my foot slip
He saves each misstep.

He’s skilful and faithful,
to care for His flock
He keeps me from wandering
watches me like a hawk.

When I call out His name,
He comes running to me
for He recognizes my voice
from temptation I’m free.

He tends to my desires,
knows what I will need
I’ll  not go hungry
for on His goodness I feed.

I shall find satisfaction,
all the days of my life
for  He took upon Himself
the lot of my strife!

God’s Love Stays Forever True ~

Copenhagen rushes by by Tim Pirfait Creationswap

People come, people go,
but God will never leave
abandon you He will not
this you must trust and believe.

People stand by, people walk,
but Jesus always stays
His love for you remains
throughout all your days.

People please, people offend,
but God will not let you down
He promises never to leave
for you He is always around.

People help, people hinder,
but Jesus will not disappoint
He is your soothing balm
your soul’s healing ointment.

People come, people go,
but God’s love stays forever true
your name is in His Book of Life . . .
because Jesus first loved you!

~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 31:6
King James Version

“Be strong and of a good courage,

he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

I Am Delighted!

Faithful Obedience by Duane Eaves Creationswap free photo

My soul delights in those,
who trust and wait for Me
it gives My heart vast pleasure
when blind eyes begin to see.

They are My faithful servants,
to whom I will uphold
the elect that I have chosen,
I lovingly gather to My fold.

I have poured out My Spirit,
on those who are the meek
for they set their sights on Me
and My thoughts they do seek.

I am called their Lord,
in return, they are My sheep
they know to follow after Me
for their souls I guard and keep.

I have called them to righteousness,
and in My glory they rise and sing
behold all things come to pass
and new things to them I’ll bring.

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

Isaiah 42:1

“Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect,
in whom my soul delighteth;
I have put my spirit upon him:
he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.”

Those Who Wait On the Lord ~

Those who wait on the Lord,

shall fly against the strongest gust
they shall soar above their sorrow
because in God they trust.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall run a good and faithful race

Those who wait on the Lord,

they shall go up against this world
and not get caught up in sin.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall arise and take their stand
they shall rise up against temptation
for they put their life in His hand.

Those who wait on the Lord,

Flex Your Faith Muscle!

The Battle Within by Diorama Studios free phot # 4028

There is no temptation,
no bait, no trap, no lure
that Satan won’t use on you
so your soul he can secure.

He will throw out anything,
that he thinks will entice you
and he knows before hand
just what He wants to do.

But, God has promised us,
that if in Him we stay faithful
He will help us to withstand
temptations push and pull.

For there’s been no attraction,
that’s not common to all man
God knows what we can bear
and He has for us an exit plan.

So, next time Satan tempts you,
and he tries to confuse or perplex
just rely on the Lord’s strength
then let your faith muscle flex!

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

1 Corinthians 10:13
King James Version

“There hath no temptation taken you but such
as is common to man: but God is faithful, who
will not suffer you to be tempted above that
ye are able; but will with the temptation also
make a way to escape, that ye may be able
to bear it.”

Sin No More ~

Sin Kills by Nathan Wright free photo # 1991-1

Oh, beware my repented friend,
for Jesus came not to condemn
rather to forgive your trespasses
but you must not go and sin again.

Once you confess to Him your sin,
ask Him for His strength and power
for Satan will be sure to tempt you
when he finds you in your weakest hour.

You must forsake your sinful ways,
if you want God’s peace to remain
and from all the lusts of this world
you must be faithful to refrain.

Sin confessed will not save you,
if you return to your recklessness
you must stop the sin that you do
or you will lose ~ God’s blessedness.

Oh, beware my repented friend,
for Jesus came not to condemn
but God requires from you living faith
and you must change lest you sin again!

~~~~~~~~

John 8:11
King James Version

“She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said
unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go,
and sin no more.

Be Perfect . . .

Make perfection your goal,
make it your heart’s desire
do all that you know
our heavenly Father requires.

Be faithful and true,
press towards holiness
let His grace show you
how to live with lowliness.

Be followers of God,
for you are His dear child
submit to all of His ways
being truly humble and mild.

Be imitators of your Father,
show compassion and love
even to those who hate you
let your peace be like a dove.

Be perfect,
strive and make this your goal
seek and you shall find
His perfection for your soul.

which is in heaven is perfect.”
