Stop And Pray Each Day ~

 

Each day we need,
to stop and pray
and listen to . . .
what God has to say.

We need to pray,
for His mercy anew
so temptation
we can subdue.

We need to pray,
for more grace
so the enemy
we can face.

We need to pray,
for His favor
if our faith
should waiver.

We Need to pray,
for His healing balm
to help keeps us
still and calm.

We need to pray,
for His power
so we’ll have victory
no matter the hour.

We need to pray,
for His wisdom
to give unto us
a clear vision.

Each day we need,
to continually pray . . .
for we never know
what’ll come our way!

Without God’s Mercy ~

Without God's Mercy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Without God’s mercy,
I would be pitiful
without His favor
I would be miserable.

Without His compassion,
I wouldn’t be sympathetic
without His humbleness
I wouldn’t be apologetic.

Without God’s clemency,
I would be hopeless
without God’s patience
I would be useless.

Without His mildness,
I would not be forgiving
without His tenderness
I would not be accepting.

Without God’s mercy,
I would be deplorable
without His favor
I would be just horrible!

~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12-13

“Put on therefore, as the elect of God
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness, longsuffering;

Forbearing one another, and forgiving
one another, if any man have a quarrel
against any: even as Christ forgave
you, so also do ye.”

Seeking God’s Favor ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Look Up - IBible Verses

Those who seek God’s favor,
rejoice in the morning . . .
they give ear to His word
He considers their groaning.

They cry out to the living God,
for answers to their prayers
they trust He will respond
to their worries and their cares.

They know He will protect them,
from the burdens life brings
tis why at the break of dawn . . .
their praise to Him, they sing.

They trust Him along the way,
to shelter them in any storm
to the world they’re resolved
not to follow or to conform.

Those who seek God’s favor,
each morning look up . . .
and sip the mercy flowing
right from their King’s cup!

~~~~~~~

“Give ear to my words, O Lord,
consider my meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry,
my King, and my God: for unto
thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear in the
morning, O Lord; in the morning
will I direct my prayer unto
thee, and will look up.”

We all need God’s help,
in the things we do
we all need His grace
to help get us through.

We need God’s aid,
to continue as we go
we need His power
in our lives to flow.

We need God’s support,
as we go about the day
we need His mercy
along the righteous way.

We need God’s assist,

Hope Everlasting ~

hope-in-living-god CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Hope brings . . .

my heart gladness,
rest unto my strife
Hope gives me courage
brings strength to my life.

Hope lifts up my soul,
fills me full of grace
Hope teaches me to wait
to seek His Holy face.

Hope is my shield,
in these days of evil
Hope is my escape from
the world’s upheaval.

Hope is my refuge,
a place for me to run
Hope is my anchor
in God’s begotten Son.

Hope is everlasting,
brings God  great pleasure
Hope makes me happy
for, it’s my eternal treasure.

Hope is full of praise,
is something I can trust
Hope turns me away
from every earthly lust.

Hope is my salvation,
full of mercy and favor
Hope brings redemption
through my Lord and Savior.

Hope is my patience,
in things that aren’t seen
Hope is my future promise
to endure time in between.

Hope is steadfast,
it is active and lively
Hope is glorious
it’s confident and mighty.

Hope is my portion,
the source of my peace
Hope is my assurance
my joy will never cease.

My Hope is up in heaven,
I found it in the Good Word
My Hope is the mystery behind
all of the truth I have heard!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 3:15

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer
to every man that asketh you
a reason of the hope that is in you
with meekness and fear:”

King James Version

~~~~~~~

I used over 20 different verses
found in the Old and New Testament
to tell what My Hope is based on.

You Don’t Have to Be a Magi ~

You don’t have to be a Magi,
to follow the Christmas Star . . .
you don’t have to make a trip
or need to come from very far.

You don’t have to bring gifts,
of gold, frankincense or myrrh
it won’t cost you a thing . . .
for God’s mercy and favor.

You don’t have to be a shepherd,
to follow the Christmas Star . . .
you don’t have go anywhere
it will come to where you are.

For, Jesus is the Light shinning,
for all of the world to see . . .
He brings hope to the darkness
with His grace, He sets us free.

You don’t have to be a Magi,
or a shepherd coming from afar
you can accept the gift of Jesus . . .
today, right from wherever you are!

Forgiveness in the Son ~

forgiveness CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s not that I don’t remember,
it’s just that I choose to forget
my life as I lived it . . .
before the day Jesus and I met.

It’s not that I can’t recall,
the places that I have been
but, I know it’s just the devil
who wants to visit my past sin.

It’s not that I don’t regret,
or feel the shame of disgrace
it’s just that I know I’m forgiven
because of Jesus’ awesome grace.

It’s not that I don’t consider,
my life before I was saved
it’s just that I don’t want to be
to my former days enslaved.

So, don’t throw in others faces,
the wrong things they have done
for, we’re all a bunch of sinners
needing to forgive every one!

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

Isaiah 38:17
King James Version

“Behold, for peace I had great bitterness:
but thou hast in love to my soul delivered
it from the pit of corruption:
for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.

The Path of Praise ~

PraiseTheLord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
The path of praise is paved,
with songs of joyousness
glorious hallelujahs
sung with thankfulness.

Praise fills the hearts,
of those who seek the Lord
they sing salvation’s song
with gratitude in each chord.

Trusting voices raise offerings,
of praise and adoration
to their almighty God
they sing their admiration.

Faithful lips sing the words,
of devotion to their Savior
praising and thanking Him
for His grace and favor.

The path of praise is paved,
with hallelujahs galore
filled with joyous thankfulness
to the One who they adore!

King James Version

“Praise ye the Lord.
Praise ye the name of the Lord;
praise him, O ye servants of the Lord.”

The Real Housewife in God’s Home!

Proverbs 31.25  used with permission Creation Swap

The real housewife in God’s home,
isn’t like the one in Beverly Hills
for you won’t see her strutting about
in a short skirt and her high heels.

She has a heart that is spun of gold,
she’s full of wisdom and God’s grace
she doesn’t wear a lot of makeup
to cover her unfaithful, plastic face.

Her husband is pleased with her,
he trusts her to do what is right
she is not quarrelsome or angry
with him she does not pick a fight.

She manages all of his earthly affairs,
she doesn’t have one with her neighbor
she makes her husband proud of her
and in his eyes she holds his favor.

The real housewife in God’s house,
doesn’t go to fancy, pricey dining places
she plants, reaps, and serves her meals
to her families happy, grateful faces.

She isn’t a nosey, busy body,
and gossip to her is a dirty word
instead she shares the Gospel truth
spreading the goodness she has heard.

She isn’t an ambitious career woman,
who leaves her family to fend for itself
she is a strong, dignified, caring woman
who gives God her inner and outer self.

Her husband and children love her,
and respect her kind, generous ways
she’s not like the wives of Beverly Hills
for, she’s given God all her living days!

Divine Grace

Grace Free Unmerited

By the grace of God,
I am what I am . . .
His mercy and favor
is why I do what I can.

My words are idle,
they hold no worth
if they’re not from Him
they fall to the earth.

I labor in vain,
all my works are dust
without His grace
they’ll turn to rust.

I am nothing,
without God’s grace
I haven’t the power
to finish the race.

There’s nothing I do,
nothing I can be . . .
without divine grace
abundantly living in me!

~~~~~~~~~~~
1 Corinthians 15:10
King James Version
“But by the grace of God I am what I am:
and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain;
but I laboured more abundantly than they all:
yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Jesus Knows Your Pain ~

Dealing with Pain by Marian Trinidad free photo # 8971

Jesus knows your pain,
He understands your grief
He knows that only His love
can bring your heart relief.

He recognizes your sorrow,
He sees the spiteful sting
and the grace He has for you
in your life, He wants to bring.

He’s aware of your rejection,
He hears others put you down
and His favor and His mercy
will be your victory crown.

He identifies with your hurt,
the tenderness of your ache
and He will bring you comfort
that no man could ever break.

For He too ~ was rejected,
His life others gladly discarded
He knows the agony inflected
when your cry is disregarded.

Jesus knows your pain,
He wants to give you relief
for He died to put an end to
your sorrow and your grief.

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:3
King James Version

“He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces from him;
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”
