Breaking The Chain of Pain ~

Living in the past,
is so easy to do . . .
it’s not hard to recall
the bad things done to you.

Letting go is not so simple,
there’s no effort in hanging on
and to forget the past images
takes an awful lot of brawn.

So, we live with the despair,
the heartaches and the pain
and the peace God promised
our misery will only drain.

It’s not until we come,
to a place where we forgive
that we find the tranquility
in which God wants us to live.

So, if you are in the shackles,
which bind you to the past
let Jesus release your burden
and you’ll be free at last!

Psalm 55:22

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

The Heart of Christ ~

let-this-mind-be-in-you CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
to love one and all . . .
to forgive the one who stumbles
to lift up the ones who fall.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d see others deepest need
I’d minister to the lost
their souls to heaven I’d lead.

Oh, to have the life of Christ,
to see all in His saving light
to heal the ailing hearts
to give all eternal sight.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d take His Word across the land
I’d lead others to His Kingdom
deliver the unsaved into His hand.

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
beating deep inside me . . .
to have the mind just like Jesus
oh, how wonderful that would be!

Philippians 2:5
King James Version

“Let this mind be in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus:”

The Sweetest Word I Know!

Will Your Forgive Me by Jason Sheveland free photo #6130

There is no other sweeter word,
that I have yet to hear . . .
there is no other sound of hope
that has fallen on my guilty ear.

There is no other pardon,
that’ll remove my crimson stain
there is no other sure release
to which my soul will ever gain.

There is no other freedom,
that I have yet to find . . .
there is no other liberation
of my soul, heart and mind.

There is nothing else like it,
nothing my ears have ever heard
 . . . forgiveness . . .
is that sweet blessed word!

Ephesians 1:7
King James Version

“In whom we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins, according to the
riches of his grace;”

Should Have’s and Only If’s . . .

Pressing on For Jesus used with permission IBible Verses on facebook

God doesn’t care about . . .
our should have’s and only if’s
He doesn’t nose around the past
in our mistakes, He doesn’t sniff.

He won’t dig up the wild seeds,
that in our life we have sown
He only cares from our mistakes
if in His wisdom, we have grown.

He doesn’t make our skeletons,
come back to taunt or haunt us
for when we confess our sins
He throws them under the bus.

God doesn’t sits around stewing,
over the errors we have made
He doesn’t want our minds troubled
or our hearts to be dismayed.

God only cares about our future,
where we go from here and now
and our should have’s and only if’s
He no longer wants us to avow!

Philippians 3:13
King James Version

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind, and reaching forth
unto those things which are before,”

Blessing Upon Blessing ~

Blessing Upon Blessing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Blessing upon blessing,
God wants to give
He wants you to repent
so He can forgive.

God wants your heart,
He wants your soul
in Him He wants you
to be complete and whole.

Mercy upon mercy,
God wants you to receive
He wants your faith
so in Him you’ll believe.

God wants your troubles,
He wants your prayers
He wants you to trust Him
with all of your cares.

Glory upon glory,
God wants you to know
He wants your love
so His peace can grow.

God wants your battles,
He wants your deeds
He wants you to give
Him all of your needs.

Blessing upon blessings,
God wants you to accept
His mercy and grace
for the tears you’ve wept!

Psalm 84:11
King James Version

the Lord will give grace and glory:
no good thing will he withhold

The Chain of Pain

Be Free by Marian Trindad free photo

Living in the past,
is so easy to do . . .
thinking about the things
that other’s did to you.

Letting go isn’t simple,
there’s no effort in hanging on
and to forget the images
takes an awful lot of brawn.

So, we live with the despair,
the heartaches and the pain
and the peace, God promises
our misery will only drain.

It’s not until we come,
to a place where we forgive
that we’ll find the harmony
in which God intended us to live.

So, if you are in the shackles,
which bind you to the past
let Jesus release the burden
and you’ll be free at last.

The future holds great promise,
to those who give Him their pain
for only Jesus can heal the hurt
of every painful link on the chain !

King James Version

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

Amen and Amen!

The Pill of Bitterness ~

The Pill of Bitterness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Bitterness is a caustic pill,
that at times we all swallow
causing a pool of self-pity
where misery loves to wallow.

At first the acid taste,
doesn’t bother us too much
for we feel justified in our pain
and to our anger we still clutch.

As we take our daily dose,
sweet revenge turns a little tart
but we don’t seem to notice
the spite budding in our heart.

We take our correct measure,
each morning when we awake
for we are not willing to forgive
and aren’t wanting to forsake.

The remedy for bitterness,
can’t be found in any pill . . .
but you can find a cure for it
when forgiveness you instill!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:31
King James Version

” Let all bitterness,
wrath, anger, clamor, and

evil speaking be
put away from you,
with all

malice. “
