Take Back Your Joy ~

Lord, give back Your joy,
to those stumbling . . .
let them feel Your love
once again humbling.

Reignite in them the hope,
when they first meet You
let again Your saving light
in their life’s break through.

Let their repentant heart,
once again feel Your calm
let the joy of being saved
be again their soothing balm.

Restore in them the trust,
as when You they first accepted
renew Your mercy and grace
so again You’ll be connected.

Lord, let the contrite take back,
the joy of their salvation . . .
return unto them their state
of everlasting elation!

“Restore unto me the joy
of thy salvation; and uphold
me with thy free spirit.”

Jesus Is All I Need ~

 

I said to myself,
Jesus is all I need
now that from sin
I have been freed.

He said unto my soul,
I am hope eternal
tis why I saved you
from hell’s infernal.

I said to myself,
Jesus is my Lord
now that my life
and His is in accord.

He said unto my soul,
I’m Your Savior
thanks to My Father’s
mercy and favor.

I said to myself,
where would I be
if not for His grace
being shed on me.

He said unto my soul,
you would be lost
and so My life I gave
to you at not a cost.

I said to myself,
Jesus is all I need
He said unto my soul
it is I in you . . .
who’s been freed!

Everlasting ~

Everything around us,
eventually will be gone
but the peace of Jesus
will eternally carry on.

For He’s everlasting,
His love is unchanging
His grace for each of us
is tirelessly unfailing.

All that we possess,
will someday vanish
but our hope in Jesus
will not ever perish.

For Jesus is the same,
yesterday and today
to His Father’s throne
He’s still the only doorway.

Everything around us,
will one day be but gone
but life everlasting . . .
we can joyfully count on!

An Everlasting Treasure ~

I got me a treasure,
it’s something I cherish
for it is everlasting
it will never perish.

It will not tarnish,
nor corrode from decay
it will not fade out
nor will it rot away.

I got me a treasure,
no one can rob me of
I store it in my heart
for the God that I love.

It is full of faith,
hope, joy, peace and trust
I hold it dear to me
so I know it won’t rust.

I have got me a treasure,
it is something I savor . . .
for it’s full of God’s glory
and the grace of my Savior!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust
doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor
rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Destined For Salvation ~

Destined for salvation,
if Christ you receive
for bound for heaven
are those who believe.

We’ll be made alive,
whether awake or asleep
for the sacrificial Lamb
died for all of the sheep.

Through Jesus’ death,
and His resurrection
He spared us from the wrath
of hell’s eternal destruction.

Jesus came to call,
the sinner to repentance
for He saved us all
from sinful dependence.

Destined for salvation,
through faith and grace
bound for heaven
if Jesus’s love you embrace!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:9-10

“For God hath not appointed us
to wrath, but to obtain
salvation by our
Lord Jesus Christ,

Who died for us, that,
whether we wake or sleep,
we should live together
with him.”

The Reflections of My Soul ~

The reflections of my soul,
run long and deep . . .
I can see each time into it
God’s mercy began to seep.

I can remember the times,
when lost, was my direction
how God took me back
without any hesitation.

I can recall the episodes,
when my faith was bleak
how God gave me strength
knowing I was weak.

I can recollect the moments,
when I felt so all alone
how God directed me
to keeps my eyes on His throne.

I can call back to my mind,
the bouts of doubt and fear
how God reminded me
He was still close and near.

The reflections of my soul,
run long and deep . . .
as I think of God’s faithfulness
I can’t help but weep!

Grace and Faith ~

Grace and faith,
brings true liberation
for, it’s the only way
to finding salvation.

There’s no other path,
that we can take
only Jesus can seal
our eternal fate.

Grace and faith,
fits just like a glove
for it’s the greatest gift
of God’s merciful love.

There’s no other road,
for us to travel on
there’s only one way
to God and His Son.

Grace and faith,
nothing else to do
but to believe . . .
Jesus died for you!

God Hates Sin ~

God hates man’s wickedness,
He despises the evil they do
He hates the grievous schemes
that in their hearts they brew.

God hates man’s stubbornness,
He loathes their rebellious ways
He hates how easily  . . .
satan can make their soul’s sway.

God hates man’s immoral nature,
He detests sin of every kind
He hates what man can do
with their bodies and their minds.

God hates man’s defiance,
He abhors their callousness
He hates that man is full
of cruelty and hatefulness.

God hates man’s wickedness,
He resents the evil they do
in fact it grieves Him . . .
He ever created them too!

~~~~~

Psalm 5:4-5

” For thou art not a God
that hath pleasure in
wickedness: neither shall
evil dwell with thee.

The foolish shall not stand
in thy sight: thou hatest
all workers of iniquity.”

I have made them.”

Don’t Be a Sellout ~

You can tell God you’re sorry,
ask Him for forgiveness . . .
but, without true repentance
sin, still will be your weakness.

You can try to conquer sin,
but, it is impossible to do
unless you have the Holy Spirit
and His power helping you.

You can beg and you can plea,
for your sins to be forgiven
but, without turning from them
to sin, you’ll still be driven.

You can try to stay away,
from all evil and wickedness
but, without the Light in your life
you’ll still be drawn to the darkness.

You can cry, you can weep,
over your besetting sin
but, without true remorse
over them you’ll never win.

You can try to keep sin at bay,
you can try to cut it out . . .
but, without true repentance
to sin you will still sellout!

In The Lord’s House ~

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to forever dwell

For, my sins I’ve confess,

by grace through faith is how
I’ll enter His kingdom.

In Your house Lord,
is where I want to be
so, for the rest of my days
I’ll faithfully follow Thee.

For, the world is full darkness,
but, You have brought me Light
Your mercy and goodness
are now always in my sight.

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to live forever
oh, how I cannot wait . . .
for us to be together!

My Soul Restored ~

My soul God restores,
whenever I stray
He leads me straight back
onto the narrow way.

He tells me where,
I have gone wrong
shows me the places
I do not belong.

with His mercy and grace
for, His arms long to keep me
in His loving embrace.

He knows I’m weak,
He knows I’m frail
He knows sin in my life
must not ever prevail.

My soul God restores,
He brings it to repentance

My Soul Shall Live On ~

My Soul Shall Live On ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My body may perish,
but, my soul shall live on
all because I believe Jesus
is God’s only begotten Son.

Eternal life I was promised,
when my sins I confessed
and from that day forward
with His Spirit I’ve been blessed.

My body is growing weak,
but my spirit’s getting stronger
for it has truly repented
and is in this world no longer.

I long for the day when,
I will spend all of eternity
with my Lord and Savior
in blissful serenity.

My body may perish,
but, my soul it shall live on
all because of God’s mercy
and the grace of His Son!

Some People ~

Some people are depressed,
they feel there is no hope
some are plain disheartened
finding it hard just to cope.

Some people have a purpose,
they know there’s a way
some people see the plan,
for a brighter, peaceful day.

Some people are lost,
they feel they’re out at sea
some are just drifting
floating in their perplexity.

Some people put their trust,
in a God that will overcome
some know He has His reasons
and to His will they succumb.

Some people have no direction,
some can clearly see the path
some are on a collision course
some know to steer from His wrath.

Some people believe in Jesus,
some never heard His name
some people He has saved
some He still needs to claim.

For all the lost people,
without direction or a plan
turn your life over to Jesus
and let Him do, what only He can!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:10

“The thief cometh not,
but for to steal,
and to kill,
and to destroy:
I am come that they
might have life,
and that they might
have it more abundantly.”

If We Walk In The Light ~

If we walk in the Light,
like Jesus we will be
and His reflection off us
others will be able to see.

If we act as the Light,
the Gospel we will share
and to the blood of Jesus
we’ll make others aware.

If we live in the Light,
we will be God’s witness
and shine His every truth
on the lies of the darkness.

If we are to be the Light,
God will give us power
to save others from satan
before he can devour.

If we walk in the Light,
our hope will radiate
and the love of Jesus
to others we’ll illustrate!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7

” But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship
one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ
his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

Did You Hear The Good News ~

Did you hear the Good News,
how Jesus died for you . . .
were you told about His grace
truly making all things new?

Did you hear the Good News,
how you can be forgiven
why Jesus came to redeem
your sinful condition?

Did you hear the Good News,
have you come to know
how Jesus washes your sins
turning them white as snow?

Did you hear the Good News,
God remembers your sin no more
how when Jesus arose
He opened to you, heavens door?

Did you hear the Good News,
before God you’ll stand blameless
for Jesus was the sacrifice . . .
making you His bride, spotless!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:18-19

“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not
redeemed with corruptible things,
as silver and gold, from your vain
conversation received by tradition
from your fathers;

But with the precious blood
of Christ, as of a lamb
without blemish and without spot:”

Do not be vengeful,

for any kind of reason.

Do not be spiteful,
don’t be merciless
do not be cruel
or become heartless.

Do not be resentful,
don’t be envious
don’t be embroiled
in others pettiness.

Do not be hateful,
don’t be critical
do not be unforgiving
nor become cynical.

Do not be vengeful
don’t hold a grudge
for God one day . . .
every thought will judge!

Our Life-Savior ~

Oh, what a Savior,
oh, what a safeguard
Jesus became for all
our heavenly lifeguard.

When to Jesus we come,
repentant and contrite
He’ll wash all our sins
from crimson to white.

Oh, what a Savior,
oh, what a surety
forgiveness of sin
is our security.

God’s incredible mercy,
Christ’s magnificent grace
is now for every heart
to eternally embrace.

Oh, what a life-line.
oh, what a life-preserver
for, Jesus truly is . . .
the world’s life-Savior!

Bearing Good Fruits ~

Faith that is voiced,
faith that is shared
is a faith that knows
good fruit it’s to bear.

Faith that is productive,
faith that is fruitful
is a faith God makes
for His kingdom useful.

Faith that is spoken,
faith that is conveyed
is a faith that God needs
so hearts can be swayed.

Faith that is ministering,
faith that is life-saving
is a faith in Jesus
worthy of our embracing.

Faith that is hidden,
faith that we don’t share
is a faith in God . . . .
leading others no where!

James 2:17

“Even so faith,
if it hath not works,
is dead, being alone.”

Matthew 7:16-20

“Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles?

Even so every good tree
bringeth forth good fruit;
but a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit.

A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit,
neither can a corrupt tree
bring forth good fruit.

Every tree that bringeth
not forth good fruit
is hewn down, and cast
into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits
ye shall know them.”

for yours sins you’ll receive.

God’s way is righteous,
it is tried and true

why Jesus died for you.

A New Covenant ~

God will bestow,
on each and everyone
life eternal
if we believe in His Son.

Through Jesus’ blood,
we have a new covenant
everlasting life instead . . .
of eternal punishment.

Through God’s mercy,
we’ll have eternal glory
tis why Jesus’ death
became mandatory.

When satan’s  defeated,
a crown of life we’ll receive
for all who until death
still trust and believe.

A ceaseless peace,
an eternal inheritance
all bestow unto us . . .
through God benevolence!

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
