Rain On Us Lord ~

Rain Down On Us Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Rain on us Lord,
pour down Your holy fire
give every heart on earth
for You, a burning desire.

Flood us in Your love,
sprinkle us with Your grace
let the showers of Your mercy
every soul come to embrace.

Rain on us Lord,
let the skies open up wide
pour out life-giving water
till You gather Your bride.

Send on us a torrent,
of Your power and might
drench us with the peace
of Your saving light.

Rain on us Lord,
ignite a burning desire
set every soul aflame . . .
with the Holy Spirit’s fire!

Luke 24:32

“And they said one to another,
Did not our heart burn within us,
while he talked with us by the way,
and while he opened to us the scriptures?”

Sticks and Stones ~

Tongues of Fire by Johannes Stafuffer free photo #5906

Sticks and stones,
indeed break bones
but, names still hurt
when they are thrown.

Hot, fiery words,
meant to cause pain
for years and years
the flames remain.

Bones they mend,
bones they heal
but, names poison
the way we feel.

They penetrate,
deep, so deep
wounded souls
weep and weep.

Before you cast,
an angry word
think of the ones
you too have heard.

For sticks might break,
stones can miss their mark
but names, oh names . . .
always hits ~ the heart!

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

James 3:6
King James Version

“And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity:
so is the tongue among our members,
that it defileth the whole body,
and setteth on fire the course of nature;
and it is set on fire of hell.”

The Tongue ~

The Tongue ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

With fire and venom,
the tongue likes to spin
spewing out it’s thoughts
from the hypocrisy within.

Judging one another,
but never – ever itself
the tongue is the critic
that will not die to self.

Sharp and two-edged,
it will quickly cut in half
the truth as it’s known
in the wake of its wrath.

Full of nasty criticism,
with a temper not to still
the tongue is the enemy
keeping us from God’s will.

Hateful and spiteful,
it’s deeds are no match
to the deceit it holds
in the lies it can hatch.

Dangerous and unsafe,
it’s ambition is to destroy
gossip is the ammunition
that it loves to employ.

With fire and venom,
the tongue likes to sin
and with its hypocrisy
it’s always out to win!

~~~~~~~

James 3:5
King James Version

“Even so the tongue is a little member,
and boasteth great things.
Behold, how great a matter
a little fire kindleth!”

With Fear and Trembling

Once ~ I use to fear God . . .
and trembled at His holy name
hearing about “Fire and Brimstone”
reminded me of hell’s flame.

I would shiver and I’d shake,
when I heard about His wrath
and I knew that I had better
keep to the narrow path.

I would listen to my preacher,
talk about God’s end-time plan
and how Satan was prepared
to pluck me out ~ from His hand.

But, as the years went by . . .
I no longer heard these words
and when the flame died out
I began to fall ~ backwards.

Going to church became fun,
for God’s love is a wonderful thing
my pastor dwelled on my life-purpose
and all the blessings it would bring.

With all condemnation set aside,
I could focus on what drove me
so I went out into the world
to have me a real good look-see.

Oh, what I saw . . .
lit the fires of hell right back up
and once again, I was full of fear
for I saw what was in Satan’s cup.

It is true we must love others,
but their sin we still must expose
what kind of love would we possess
if we left them to hell’s throes?

So if you are a roving seeker,
you still need to fear God’s wrath
and it would be wise for you to hurry
back onto the straight and narrow path.

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
