Hearts In Harmony ~

Hearts in harmony,
have the same tone
for they know Jesus
their sins did atone.

Hearts in unity,
have the same feeling
for they know His grace
brings inner healing.

Hearts in unison,
have the same pitch
for they know His love
makes the poor rich.

Hearts in cohesion,
have the same flavor
for they know the hope
of having a Savior.

Hearts in harmony,
have the same melody
for they know their future
will be heavenly!

~~~~~~

Philippians 2:2

Fulfil ye my joy,
that ye be likeminded,
having the same love,
being of one accord,
of one mind.

Put On Your Grace Face ~

When other people’s walls,
you cannot bring down
and all they offer you
is a big, grumpy frown.

Put on your grace-face,
give them a smile
despite if they remain
to you hostile

When other people’s defenses,
you can’t break through
and bitter, cranky words
they throw at you.

But on your grace-face,
and to them be kind
even if they don’t pay
you back any mind.

When other people’s coldness,
you cannot penetrate
put on your grace-face . . .
and let Jesus’ love radiate!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:32

And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted,
forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ’s sake
hath forgiven you.

Scatter Seeds Of Kindness ~

Scatter seeds of kindness,
as today you make your way
you don’t know just how much
they could make someone’s day.

Spread a wide old-grin,
get someone else to smile
it could make them feel
useful and worthwhile.

Extend a happy greeting,
sing out a bright hello
it may bring a little joy
to someone you don’t know.

Disperse some generosity,
it can go a long, long way
to energize and cheer up
someone sad you meet today.

Scatter seeds of kindness,
let goodwill be what you sow
how they make other’s feel
you may never really know!

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

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law.

A Life Drama Free ~

We all want to have,
a drama-free life
where love conquers
the everyday strife.

We all need to be,
less angry, more loving
we all need to become
more mercifully giving.

We all want to have,
a life free of drama
where peace surpasses
the everyday trauma.

We all need to be,
less cold and indifferent
we all need to render
grace more consistent.

We all want to have,
a life drama free . . .
and I know it starts
right here with me!

~~~~~~

Galatians 5:15

But if ye bite and devour one another,
take heed that ye be not consumed
one of another.

Ephesians 4:32

And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted, forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ’s sake
hath forgiven you.

God’s Not Finished With Me ~

God’s not finished with me,
I know this to be true . . .
for, I can see all the things
that He has yet to do.

I realize He got started,
on me a long time ago
but, I also know there’s still
a lot of room for me to grow.

God’s not done with me,
all things beautiful take time
but, first He needed to chisel
away sin’s grit and grime.

I know when I came to Him,
my life was a big mess
but, a masterpiece takes time
and a lot of divine finesse.

God’s not finished with me,
He has a long way to go . . .
but, I am confident in this
when He is done, I will know!

~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 3:11

He hath made every thing
beautiful in his time:

Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very
thing, that he which hath
begun a good work in you
will perform it until the
day of Jesus Christ:

Sticky Note From God ~12.21.18~


Grieve Not ~

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
nor the effects of His grace
don’t let your appetites
be with corruption laced.

For mighty are the works,
He has in store for you
but, you must allow
His power to come through.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
with your lying, clamoring lips
do not cause Him grief
by your bitter. angry quips.

For He cannot provide,
His strength in your life
if you continue to give
others heartache and strife.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
for it is God’s seal on you
it’s the mark of the souls
who keep heaven in their view!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:30

“And grieve not the holy Spirit
of God, whereby ye are sealed
unto the day of redemption.”

Sticky Note From God ~06.20.18~


Fruit Developing ~

It’s hard sometimes,
having self-control
it’s not easy to let
restraint into your soul.

But, it needn’t be,
as hard as you think
when with the Holy Spirit
your life is in sync.

It’s hard sometimes,
to be peaceful
it’s not easy to let
hope make you joyful.

But, it needn’t be,
that difficult to do
when the Holy Spirit
works inside of you.

It’s hard sometimes,
to be good and kind
it’s not easy to let
gentleness fill your mind.

But, it needn’t be,
too problematic
for, with the Holy Spirit
it becomes automatic.

It’s hard sometimes,
developing these fruits
unless the Holy Spirit . . .
establishes their roots!

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law.”

Be Patient, Be Kind ~

Be patient with others,
be kind to them too
show them the same mercy
God has shown to you.

Be not resentful,
be not quarrelsome
don’t let anger dim
the Light of the Son.

Be loving, be nice,
have self-control
let others see
the fruits of your soul.

Be not moody,
be not testy or rude
let God’s grace
out of you exude.

Be patent with others,
be forgiving too
just like Jesus . . .
has been with you!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:13

“Forbearing one another,
and forgiving one another,
if any man have a quarrel
against any: even as
Christ forgave you,
so also do ye.”

Spiritual Inventory ~

Spiritual Inventory ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m taking inventory,
of my spiritual progress
going to be weighing
my increase, my digress.

Going to take stock,
to see if I’ve grown
going to be looking for
the gifts I’ve blown.

I’m going to catalog,
how much fruit I’ve got
going to see if its usable
or if its starting to rot.

Going to be searching,
down deep into my soul
see if I’m warehousing
any areas I still control.

I’m taking inventory,
doing me some stock taking
because one day to God . . .
I’ll be giving an accounting!

“So then every one of us
shall give account of himself

A Joy Jump ~

unspeakable-joy-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some Christians,
seem to be grumpy
fussy and sulky
and a little bit crabby.

They seldom smile,
or say something nice
it’s as if their hope . . .
has turned dry as ice.

Some Christians,
seem to be uptight
I can hardly see
a flicker of light.

They barely laugh,
seldom do they grin
it’s as if their peace . . .
took one on the chin.

Oh, Lord if You see,
me being a grump
give my heart . . .
an eternal joy jump!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Heavenly Gifts ~

Heavenly Gifts ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Heavenly gifts,
from my Father above
wrapped in His goodness
tied up with His love.

So many blessings,
to me He sends
when on His Spirit
my life depends.

Heavenly gifts,
from my Father to me
so the truth and way
I will always see.

Longing to give,
eager to impart
power and might
right into my heart.

Heavenly gifts,
my Father sends my way
His spiritual fruit . . .
for me to grow each day!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 11:13

“If ye then, being evil,
know how to give good gifts
unto your children: how much
more shall your heavenly
Father give the Holy Spirit
to them that ask him?”

Fruit Bearing ~

Fruit Bearing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If we want to bear fruit,
if we want to stay green
then off the Word of God
we must constantly glean.

We need the waters of life,
to be on a constant flow
we need our roots nourished
so our faith in God can grow.

If we are to spread out,
if we are to far reach
then we must live the life
we’re so willing to preach.

If we are not to faint,
if we are not to wither
then we need to grow smaller
so God can become bigger.

If we want to be blessed,
we need to keep our hope alive
and into the Word of God
we must constantly dive!
~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“Blessed is the man that trusteth
in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.

“For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters,
and that spreadeth out her roots by the river,
and shall not see when heat cometh, but her
leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful
in the year of drought, neither shall cease
from yielding fruit.”

What Love Is ~

What is Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Love is patient,
love is kind
love doesn’t have
a haughty mind,

It will not boast,
it is not proud
it doesn’t stand
out in a crowd.

Love is pleasant,
it doesn’t envy
it is cheerful
always friendly.

It’s full of joy,
mercy and favor
it is faithful
never a traitor.

Love is calm,
it is peaceful
never angry
always grateful.

It’s brings light,
rays of hope
love helps others
how to cope.

Love is patient,
love is kind
for love has . . .
a forgiving mind!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

“Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself,
is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own, is not easily
provoked, thinketh no evil;”

Thanksgiving Dinner ~

Thanksgiving Dinner ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Every year at this same time,
we sit at our dining tables . . .
feasting upon what has become
Thanksgiving Day staples.

We gobble down the turkey,
mashed potatoes and candy yams
then we sit back and disclaim . . .
I can’t believe how full I am.

But, this year I am not serving,
the traditional Thanksgiving fare
instead a healthy fruit salad . . .
is all I’m planning to share.

I’m going take some gentleness,
stuff it full of God’s love
along side of it will be the peace
that comes only from above.

I’ll pile high on each plate,
some joy and some goodness
right next to them I will place
some faith and some meekness.

I’ll top it off with patience,
and for the piece of resistance
I’ll pray for those whom I serve. . .
to have a lot of temperance!

~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

The Lemon’s of Life ~

Life's Lemons ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

 Sometimes in life,
lemons, we are given
unpleasant tastes of truth
we have to sink our teeth in.

They come at us,
from out of nowhere
making us want to cry
“Life isn’t being fair.”

Lemons are so acidic,
they’ll turn us quite sour
as they eat away and erode
all our faith and power.

They are the bitter fruits,
of resentment and envy
leaving us feeling cold
indifferent and empty.

When life gives us lemons,
we need the Holy Spirit’s aide
to turn our sourness into . . .
sweet, refreshing lemonade!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,

I love Jesus Because ~

I Love Jesus Because ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I love Jesus because,
He first loved me
and through His life
He taught me how to be.

He is always gentle,
considerate and selfless
He’s never thoughtless
or with my heart, careless.

I love the Jesus because,
He loves me patiently
He’s always sympathetic
He doesn’t anger easily.

He is always caring,
tender-hearted and kind
my sins and my wrongs
He doesn’t ever remind.

I love Jesus because,
He shows me true grace
my problems eagerly
He’s willing to embrace.

He is always good,
fair and reasonable
He is never resentful
or unapproachable.

I love Jesus because,
His love has taught me
how with others . . .
He wants my love to be!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 06.02.15 ~


A Carnal Life ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~transform- IBible Verses

Having a hard time,
living the truth and way
is your spiritual compass
up and down every day?

Aggravated one day,
the next, loving and kind
are the fruits of the Spirit
in your life hard to find?

Fighting with temptation,
battling with hidden sin . . .
is the enemy of your soul
on the constant win?

Needing others approval,
seeking worldly ambition
none of God’s plan for you
seem to come to fruition?

Looking for happiness,
but, ending up with strife
could it be that . . .
you’re living a carnal life?

~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 3:3

” For ye are yet carnal: for whereas
there is among you envying, and strife,
and divisions, are ye not carnal,
and walk as men?

To Look At Me ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~What God Sees ~ DoorPost Verses.com ~

To look at me,
you’d think I was sweet
the nicest person . . .
you could ever meet.

I always have a smile,
never wear a frown
that is until . . .
no one else is around.

Unless, of course,
you live with me
then my sourness
I know you’d see.

That’s when I can be,
oh, so very irritated . . .
for the tiniest of things
can get me, so agitated.

Any one would think,
frustration was my name
as it doesn’t take much . . .
for me, to be inflamed.

Lord, wherever I go,
remind me You’re there too
so my attitude . . .
can reflect more of You!

~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Samuel 16:7

“But the Lord said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance,
or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him:

for the Lord seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
