Chosen ~

you-are-chosen-and-loved used with permission IBibel Verses

I chose you,
hand picked you from My vine
I always planned for you
to be a follower of mine.

I chose you,
I knew you’d bear much fruit
I always knew that for Me
you’d be a faithful shoot.

I chose you,
guided you with My hand
I always perceived you’d take
for Me a loving, peaceful stand.

I chose you,
I knew I could count on you
I always knew that you’d do
just what I asked you to.

I chose you,
My father gave you to Me
He knew through the darkness
My light you would see!

1 Peter 2:9

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood,
an holy nation, a peculiar people;
that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called
you out of darkness into his marvellous light;”

Come, My Beloved ~

Come My Beloved ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo CreationSwap

Come, My beloved one,
come and follow Me
for there is no better day
come and move My way.

Come, My beloved one,
come and lean on Me
for there is an empty place
come so I may fill the space.

Come, My beloved one,
come and draw near to me
for there is an untold need
come and let My Spirit lead.

Come, My beloved one,
come and be one with Me
come, My beloved one
for you belong to Me.

By Faith I Will Follow ~

Faith is The Substance used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Sometimes I don’t understand,
God’s plan or path for me
so by faith ~ I will follow
trusting Him for what I can’t see.

Sometimes I can’t envision,
where God wants me to go
so by faith ~ I will follow
believing the way He’ll show.

Sometimes, I do not hear,
what God desires me to do
so by faith ~ I will follow
praying He’ll give me a clue.

Sometimes I do not know,
God’s path and plan for me
so by faith ~ I will follow
knowing He’ll help me to see!

I Hear His Voice ~

My Sheep used with perrmison Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Jesus calls my name,
I hear His voice . . .
oh, how this knowledge
makes me rejoice.

I talk with Him,
He walks with me
together we journey
through the valley.

Over the hills we go,
climb up to their tops
we travel together
making plenty of stops.

That’s when I learn,
to follow His way
of face the danger
of going astray.

Jesus calls my name,
His voice I hear . . .
He beckons to me
to stay to Him near!

He Is My Shepherd ~

My Sheep used with perrmison Doorpost Verses on Facebook
He is my Shepherd,
I am His lamb . . .
He loves me
just as I am.

I will follow Him,
wherever He goes
for I am confident
the way He knows.

I’ll never leave Him,
beside Him I will stay
from Him I’ll never
wander or stray.

I’ll remain by Him,
He’ll be at my side
I’ll always trust Him
to lead and to guide.

Jesus is my Shepherd,
His voice I do hear . . .
as long as I follow Him
I’ll have nothing to fear!

Because Jesus Said So ~

Because Jesus Said So ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Why must we give up our lives,
and everything we love and own
why must we make Him the ruler
and put Him on our heart’s throne?

Why must we deny ourselves,
and all that brings us pleasure
why must we surrender to the Lord
all that we adore and treasure?

Why must we sell everything,
and leave our dead behind
why must we sacrifice our wealth
and give to the poorest of mankind?

Why must we take up our cross,
and follow wherever He may go
why must we part with everything?
Because . . . Jesus said so!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 16:24
King James Version

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If
any man will come after me, let him deny
himself, and take up his cross, and
follow me.”

He Guides My Feet ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ steps IBible Verses

He guides my feet,
over the mountain tops
onto high ground
He lets me rest and stop.

He leads my steps,
into the green vales
where living waters flow
without halt or fail.

He shines His light,
ahead of my footsteps
the Word directs my way
His love it projects.

He takes me to places,
to share the Good News
He sends me on a path
so His truth I can pursue.

One day we’ll be together,
one day ~ we shall meet
until then I pray . . .
He’ll keep directing my feet.

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:33
King James Version

“He makes my feet like the feet of deer,
And sets me on my high places.”

The Cost of Following Jesus

Follow Jesus by Susan Helmuth free photo #5035

There’s a cost in following Jesus,
and not everyone will go along
there’s a price to be paid
and it’ll cost us our whole lifelong.

There’s a non-negotiable term,
that we need to be prepared to make
there are personal expenditures
that comes with an even higher stake.

There’s a cost in following Jesus,
and it doesn’t come from our pocket-book
there’s a price to be paid
and it’s one too many of us over look.

There’s a charge that Jesus makes,
if we are to follow and go with Him
there’s a fee that He asks  from all of us
and we can’t pay it on a whim.

There’s a cost in following Jesus,
and we’ll repay it our whole lifelong
for we  must give up EVERYTHING
if we truly want to go along . . .
