Soften My Heart Lord ~

soften-my-heart-lord-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Soften my heart Lord,
make it pliable
so my faith
can be believable.

Unbind my heart Lord,
make it bendable
so my hope
can be teachable.

Loosen my heart Lord,
make it workable
so my fruit
can be multiple

Sweeten my heart Lord,
make it lovable
so my trust
can be yieldable.

Soften my heart Lord,
make it faithful
so for You I can be
multi-fruitful!

~~~~~~

Matthew 13:8

“But other fell into good ground,
and brought forth fruit,
some an hundredfold,
some sixtyfold,

some thirtyfold.

Sticky Note to God 10.19.16

The Older I Get ~

the-older-i-get-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The older I get,
I find myself being
much more agreeable
and less disagreeing.

As the years add up,
I’m much more thankful
the words from my lips
are a lot more fruitful.

The grayer my hair is,
I find myself more wiser
the thinner its gotten
I’m more like an adviser.

As the clock ticks down,
I am a lot less whiny . . .
as my last days approach
I am more Son shiny.

The older I’m getting,
the more I can see . .
the work Jesus has
remaining for me!

Titus 2:3

“The aged women likewise,
that they be in behaviour
as becometh holiness, not
false accusers, not given
to much wine, teachers
of good things;”

A Joyful Life ~

A Joyful Life ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Life is more joyful,
when in God we trust
it is more beautiful
when He’s working in us.

It is more pleasurable,
when we let God lead
it is more bearable
when His laws we heed.

Life is more joyful,
when in God we trust
it is more delightful
when He controls us.

It is more enjoyable,
when God shows the way
it is more gratifying
when to Him we pray.

Life is more joyful,
when we are still
it is more fruitful
when we do His will!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:4-5

“Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee the desires
of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord;
trust also in him; and he
shall bring it to pass.”

Closer to Thee ~

Live to Know God used with permission IBible Verses

Oh Lord, move me closer,
move me ever near . . .
this is the only thing
I want for the New Year.

I want a soul revival,
kicking off the new start
I want You to saturate
every inch of my heart.

I want to soak in,
all of Your goodness
I want to walk with You
on the path of holiness.

I want to be full,
of Your mercy and grace
I want to every moment
seek Your righteous face.

Oh Lord, move me closer,
move me ever near . . .
so I may be fruitful
all throughout the year!

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

Colossians 1:9-10

“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it,
do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye
might be filled with the knowledge of his will in
all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord
unto all pleasing,being fruitful in every good work,
and increasing in the knowledge of God;

My Friend and Savior ~

absolute-surrender CHRIStina poetry by deborah ann

Oh Lord, I long to know You,
to feel the wonder of Your love
to marvel in Your grace
so to be called, Your beloved.

May my heart be filled,
with praise and adoration
for You, my Friend and Savior
are the hope of my salvation.

Oh, Lord may I be fruitful,
as I tell others of Your kingdom
may I lead and show the way
to everlasting peace and freedom.

May my heart be surrendered,
to the call You have for me
may I gladly submit to Your will
as I place all my trust in Thee.

Oh, Lord I yearn to follow You,
to make You my priority . . .
give to You my heart and soul
resign over, complete authority!
