John 10:4


Good Morning Quote ~06.15.21~


Jesus Is My Shepherd

Jesus is my Shepherd,
His voice I do hear . . .
I follow It so to Him
I can stay close and near.

I listen for Him to tell me,
where He wants me to go
then with confidence
I let Him the way show.

I take my cues from Him,
not to wander or to stray
for by His side is indeed
the safest place to stay.

I entrust Him with my life,
for He gave His own for me
my faith in Him goes beyond
all I can and cannot see.

Jesus is my Shepherd,
His voice I listen to . . .
right now He is telling me
He wants you, to hear Him too!

John 10:27

and I know them,
and they follow me.”

The Meaning To Life ~

Life has more meaning,
when in God you believe
it is more enjoyable . . .
when Jesus you receive.

It is more peaceful,
when others you forgive
it is more compatible
when love is what you give.

Life has more to offer,
when God you daily seek
it is more agreeable
when humble and meek.

It is more pleasant,
when you’re being kind
it is more courteous
when peace fills your mind.

Life is just plain better,
when in God you trust
it is just simply easier . . .
when Jesus lives in us!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.

Luke 5:11


Life As A Sheep ~

Life as a sheep,
has its ups and downs . . .
laughter and smiles
sadness and frowns.

But, we follow Jesus,
no matter our mood
be it we are jubilant
or sad and subdued.

Life as a sheep,
has its highs and lows . . .
one day it may be sunny
the next one it could snow.

But, we trust Jesus,
wherever He may lead
be it in stormy weather
or warm pastures to feed.

Life as a sheep,
has its hills and dells . . .
but, we eagerly follow Jesus
to wherever it is He dwells!

My sheep
hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:

I Will Follow Jesus ~

I will follow Jesus,
wherever He leads
be it fields of clover
or ones full of weeds.

I will go after Him,
leave all behind me
so I can trust Him . . .
for what I cannot see.

I will follow Jesus,
my own cross I will bear
be it on stormy seas
or ones calm and fair.

I will stick by Him,
wherever He goes . . .
deny my very own life
for the one for me He chose.

I will follow Jesus,
right into His light
together the darkness
we will expose and fight!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 5:11

And when they had brought
their boats to land, they left
everything and followed him.

Mark 8:34

And calling the crowd to him
with his disciples, he said to them,
“If anyone would come after me,
let him deny himself and take up
his cross and follow me.

John 8:12

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me
will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”

Luke 5:11


Let The Truth Guide You ~

Let the truth guide you,
let it lead your way . . .
so on the narrow path
you’ll continue to stay.

For, without the truth,
there are only lies
causing you to take
your eyes off the prize.

Let the truth be your rule,
let it be your banner
so into the straight gate
you’ll be able to enter.

For, without the truth,
satan will try to deceive
making you doubt
everything you believe.

Let the truth guide you,
let it direct you too
listen and follow . .
Jesus’ voice in you!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:27-28

My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:

And I give unto them
eternal life; and they
shall never perish,
neither shall any man
pluck them out of my hand.

I Have Me A Debt ~

I have me debt,
that I need to pay
not all at once . . .
but as I go my way.

For, I owe it to God,
to trust and obey
so my indebtedness
to Him I can repay.

I have me a credit,
there’s a balance due
the one way to pay it
is Jesus to follow You.

For, You’ve given me,
a life brand new
now in my Spirit
there is His too.

I have me a debt,
I’ll never pay it wholly
but I can live a life
righteous and holy!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:11-13

But if the Spirit of him
that raised up Jesus
from the dead dwell in you,
he that raised up Christ
from the dead shall also
quicken your mortal bodies
by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Therefore, brethren,
we are debtors, not to the flesh,
to live after the flesh.

For if ye live after the flesh,
ye shall die: but if ye through
the Spirit do mortify the deeds
of the body, ye shall live.

Walking Uprightly ~

Walking uprightly,
takes a lot of skill
but it’s easy . . .
if you know God’s will.

For in your heart,
God will speak
and the truth
you’ll want to seek.

Walking uprightly,
is not too hard
if you let God be
your shield and guard.

For He will show you,
His righteous way
and all things good
He’ll bring to your day.

Walking uprightly,
can surely be done . .
if you follow the steps
of God’s beloved Son!

~~~~~

Psalm 15:1-2

“Lord, who shall abide
in thy tabernacle? who shall
dwell in thy holy hill?

He that walketh uprightly,
and worketh righteousness,
and speaketh the truth
in his heart.”

Psalm 84:11

“For the Lord God is a sun
and shield: the Lord will
give grace and glory:
no good thing will he
withhold from them that
walk uprightly.”

Free To Be Content ~

Free from the love of money,
from the lust of having things
free to accept daily . . .
the blessings Jesus brings.

Free from the love of pleasure,
from the desire to have more
free to open up my heart
and let Jesus in the door.

Free from the love of leisure,
from worldly delight
free to follow Jesus
the Truth, Way and Light.

Free from the love of luxury,
from all earthly pleasure
free to be storing in heaven
all of my heart’s treasure.

Free from the love of money,
free to be satisfied
content in knowing . . .
Jesus is always at my side!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 13:5

“Let your conversation be
without covetousness;
and be content with such
things as ye have:
for he hath said,
I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee.”

Not I, But CHRIST ~

Not I, but Christ,
is why I have grace
to keep to the course
to stay in the race.

For without Jesus,
I’d couldn’t go the distance
and to temptation
I’d have no resistance.

Not I, but Christ,
is why I can cope
to remain steadfast
to maintain the hope.

For, without Jesus,
I’ve not the might
nor the power
to sustain the fight.

Not I, but Christ,
makes all possible
for with Jesus . . .
I am unstoppable!

This Is My Cross ~

This is my cross,
it is mine to carry
and it is up to me
the old man to bury.

This is my death,
this is my demise
so that a new life
in Christ can arise.

This is my cross,
this is me dying
this is me on myself
no longer relying.

This is me denying,
all my own plans
this is me leaving
all in God’s hands.

This is my cross,
this is my funeral
this is me becoming  . . .
for Jesus usable!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 8:34

“And when he had called the people
unto him with his disciples also,
he said unto them, Whosoever will
come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross, and follow me.”

What Will I Lose ~

What Will I Lose ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I asked the Lord,
what will be my loss
if I daily . . .
picked up my cross.

He said to me,
here’s what it requires
but first you must die
to all selfish-desires.

All your dreams,
ideas and plans
must be placed now
into My hands.

Then you will need,
to follow Me
so I can lead you
to where you should be.

All your possessions,
all that you own
you must leave behind
yes, even your home.

You must give up,
family and friends
your bank accounts
and stock dividends.

I asked the Lord,
what will be my loss . . .
YOUR VERY LIFE He said
if  you don’t pick up your cross!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 16:25-26

” For whosoever will save his life
shall lose it: and whosoever will
lose his life for my sake shall find it.

For what is a man profited,
if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?
or what shall a man give
in exchange for his soul?”

Proudly Picking Up My Cross ~

shoulder-your-cross CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

 I’m going to pursue Jesus,
I’m going to walk boldly
I’m going to be courageous
pick up my cross proudly.

No matter where He goes,
I’m following where He leads
I’m going to depend on Him
for every one of my needs.

I’m ditching my excuses,
to know God and His ways
I’m going to carry my cross
regardless of what it weighs.

I’m going to surrender,
I’m giving up the self-fight
going to press hard into Him
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

I’m pursuing Jesus,
myself, I’m going to deny
I’m picking up my cross
and carry it, proudly high!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 16:24

“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.”

Walk in The Light ~

Walk in the Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Doorpost Verses

Walk in the light,
you will not be mislead
for it’ll expose to you
temptation up ahead.

Take the light with you,
wherever you may go
it’ll illuminate your path
the moral way it’ll show.

Let the light guide you,
on the road to perfection
it will reveal to you
God’s righteous discretion.

Allow the light to shine,
it will expose the way
to truth and holiness
on the darkest of days.

Walk in the light,
look at its true reflection
for it will lead you
in a heavenly direction!

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

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.”

Every Day is A Journey ~

Follow Jesus by Susan Helmuth free photo #5035

Every day is a hopeful journey,
from the old into the new
every day is an opportunity
Lord, to grow closer to you.

In my daily travelings,
if I venture off too far . . .
send me the directions
right back to where You are.

Every day is a trusting journey,
in the light, of a new dawn
every day is an opportunity
to be Spirit, lead and drawn.

As I walk, on the road of faith,
if I should fall on my face . . .
I pray Lord, You will catch me
in the arms of Your loving grace.

Every day is an abiding journey,
from the old into the new
every day is an opportunity
Lord, in my quest to be like You!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk
in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
