Tag Archives: Fight the Good Fight

Smoking Hot ~

I saw it approaching me,
I knew from where it came
on the very tip of it . . .
I could even see my name.

It was smoking hot,
the flames were blazing
I knew after me
satan’s dart was aiming.

It had my faith in sight,
my trust was its goal
for satan’s always shoots . . .
directly for the soul.

As I put up my shield,
 on Jesus name I called
to help me to extinguish
this flaming, fiery ball.

So, beware my friends,
if you should see the same
one of satan’s fiery darts . . .
may too have your name!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:16

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

A Holy Fight ~

If we’re to be,
for Jesus a light
we must be ready
evil to fight.

For the darkness hates,
all that is right
and will stop at nothing
to douse our light.

If we’re to be,
for Jesus the salt
we must be prepared
for the world’s assault.

For the darkness hates,
all that is sound
and will do anything
to hold its ground.

If we’re to be for Jesus,
the salt and the light . . .
then we must be prepared
for a holy fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.

Winning The Fight ~

Each day is a battle,
we must fight
against the darkness
with God’s light.

Against the forces,
led by the devil
against his armies
saying good is evil.

Our spiritual enemies,
are all around us
to their wicked ways
they want us to adjust.

But, we must stand,
for what we believe
and their evil lies
we must not receive.

Each day it’s a battle,
to shine God’s light . . .
and without His armor
we can’t win the fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places.”

The Captain of our Salvation,
prepares us for the fight
equips us with the power
of His holy might.

He readies our minds,
for the battle up ahead
establishes our hearts
to be Spirit lead.

The Captain of our Salvation,
provides a safe haven
a refuge and a fortress
whenever we are shaken.

He is our stronghold,
defends on our behalf
guides and protects us
with His rod and staff.

The Captain of our Salvation,
knows the battle we’re in
and He promises to give us
the faith and trust to win!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 2:10

“For it became him,
for whom are all things,
and by whom are all things,
in bringing many sons
unto glory, to make the
captain of their salvation
perfect through sufferings.”

I Can Remain ~

remaing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I cannot change,
what God has planned
but I can remain . . .
faithful in my stand.

I cannot change,
what is God’s will
but I can remain . . .
peaceful and still.

I cannot change,
God’s directions
but I can remain . . .
ready for corrections.

I cannot change,
God’s heart divine
but I can remain . . .
clinging to the vine.

I cannot change,
what God may send
but I can remain . . .
faithful to the end!

A Lot More Assurance ~

A Lot More Assurance ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, today I will need,
a lot more assurance
that You will give me
strength and endurance.

For it’s a daily battle,
I’m fighting out there
and I’m feeling fatigued
from the wear and tear.

Lord, today I will need,
more or Your power
to fight off the enemy
no matter what the hour.

For, the conflict I’m fighting,
is between good and evil
and every day I’m thrown
straight into its upheaval.

Lord, today I will need,
strengthen and endurance
for the fight I fight . . .
is a constant occurrence!

In It To Win It ~

In It To Win It ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Beaten, but not broken,
down, but not out
for I’m in this fight
to win the bout.

Shattered, but not crushed,
weak, but not frail
for there’s no way
Satan’s taking me to hell.

Tattered, but not torn,
bleak, but not resigned
for my heart and God’s
will always be aligned.

Fragile, but not hopeless,
mournful, but not blue
for nothing can shake
my faith, Lord in You.

Beaten, but not broken,
for I’m in it to win it . . .
that’s why you won’t see
me ever give up or quit!

~~~~~~~~

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against

I Will Finish Well ~

I Will Finish Well ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m going for the goal,
I will stay on track
I’ll keep to the course
by not looking back.

I’ll strain to the end,
right to the final hour
for I am running on
God’s might and power.

The enemy is chasing,
but I will finish well
for I know he wants
to see me in hell.

I see the finish line,
it is just up ahead
I know I can reach it
cause I am Spirit lead.

I’m hanging in there,
I will win the race
for I’m running on
God’s mercy and grace!

Grace for the Race ~

Grace for the Race ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann - photo doorpost verses

God continue to give me,
grace for the race . . . .
keep giving me strength
for, each new day I face.

Keep me going strong,
help me to do my best
for each day is becoming
more and more of a test.

Help me hold fast,
to the hope I profess
keep my heart sincere
when my sins I confess.

Keep encouraging me,
in all my good works
keep reminding me of
all of my heavenly perks.

God continue to give me,
Your strength and grace
keep my faith strong . . .
so I may finish this race!

~~~~~~~~~

Timothy 4:7-8

” I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,

I have kept the faith:

 Henceforth there is laid up for
me a crown of righteousness,
which the Lord, the righteous

judge, shall give me at that day:

 and not to me only, but
unto all them also that
love his appearing.”

It’s A Fiery Battle ~

It's A Battle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s a blazing battle,
staying in the faithful race
there’s a lot of fiery darts
everyday we have to face.

It’s a daily dying,
to our selfish need
it’s an hourly test
one we mustn’t cede.

It’s a damning contest,
Satan were up against
it’s a daily must
to put on our defense.

It’s a holy conflict,
between the old and new
it’s a deadly decision
the winning is up to you.

It’s a hostile war,
we mustn’t get fatigued
it’s a matter of trust
lest we all be deceived.

It’s a winning battle,
each day we can fight
if we just remember . . .
to keep Jesus in our sight!

Everyday Victory ~

Everyday Victory ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Everyday victory,
is ours to be had
it’s our choice . . .
to be happy or sad.

Everyday victory,
is ours to claim
it’s our choice . . .
to be strong or lame.

Everyday victory,
is ours to possess
it’s our choice . . .
to quit or to press.

Everyday victory,
is ours over sin
it’s our choice . . .
to lose or to win.

Everyday victory,
is ours to accept
it’s our choice . . .
to believe or reject.

Everyday victory,
is ours to gain
it’s our choice . . .
to fail or to strain!

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 04.16.15 ~


Just Like Rambo ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Fight the Good Fight- IBible Verse

I fight the good fight,
fair and square . . .
I’m always prepared
for spiritual warfare.

I’m ready for Satan,
and his principalities
when I’m done . . .
there’ll be fatalities.

I fight the good fight,
between flesh and lust
I fight because I know
winning is a must.

I’m armed and dangerous,
God’s Word is my ammo
when the enemy strikes
I can be just like Rambo.

I fight the good fight,
fair and square . . .
I never lose a battle
for, God’s armor I wear!
