Me and My House ~

As for me and my house . . .
I’m asking Jesus to come to live
my heart and my soul to Him
I’m going to open up and give.

But, first I’ll make it ready,
and clean up the dirty mess
I’ll search my heart to see . . .
any hidden sin to confess.

Then I’ll toss out my idols,
keeping me away from Him
the ones new and shiny
all those growing old and dim.

I will toss them all out,
replace them with my Bible
with the books of preachers
whom I know are reliable.

I’m making sure I am ready,
so the Lord I can serve
because me and my house . . .
know it’s what Jesus deserves!

~~~~~~~~

Joshua 24:15

“And if it seem evil unto
you to serve the Lord,
choose you this day whom
ye will serve; whether the
gods which your fathers
served that were on the
other side of the flood,
or the gods of the Amorites,
in whose land ye dwell:
but as for me and my house,
we will serve the Lord.”

Buckle Up ~

I’m putting on my helmet,
going to protect my head
I’m buckling up the straps
with Scriptures I’ve read.

I want to be protected,
from Satan’s mind game
the hope of my salvation
is his most likely aim.

Satan is really good,
at playing with my thoughts
but my helmet keeps me
from falling for his plots.

I want to be ready,
at every curve and bend
for I know he will chase me
right up to the very end.

Satan loves the pursuit,
he will never-ever quit
but my helmet will give me
the endurance and the grit.

I’m putting on my helmet,
lest I crash and burn
going to use the Scriptures
around each and every turn!

~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:8

“But let us, who are of the day,
be sober, putting on the
breastplate of faith and love;
and for an helmet,
the hope of salvation.”

Just Like My Savior ~

A Sweet, Loving Nature ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I want to be . . .
a sweet-smelling savor
to my God, I want to be
just like my Savior.

I want to learn,
all about self-denial
I want endurance
when facing any trial.

I want to serve,
not expecting back
I want to give
what others lack.

I want to be faithful,
even if I suffer
I want patience
to be my soul’s buffer.

I want to love,
with a quite gentleness
I want to be humble
full of forgiveness.

I want to pray,
through all things
I want the purity
His Spirit brings.

I want to be . . .
just like my Savior
I want to have His . . .
sweet-loving nature!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:1-2

“Be ye therefore followers of God,
as dear children;

And walk in love, as Christ also hath
loved us, and hath given himself for us
an offering and a sacrifice to God for
a sweet smelling savour.”

You Don’t Have to Be a Magi ~

You don’t have to be a Magi,
to follow the Christmas Star . . .
you don’t have to make a trip
or need to come from very far.

You don’t have to bring gifts,
of gold, frankincense or myrrh
it won’t cost you a thing . . .
for God’s mercy and favor.

You don’t have to be a shepherd,
to follow the Christmas Star . . .
you don’t have go anywhere
it will come to where you are.

For, Jesus is the Light shinning,
for all of the world to see . . .
He brings hope to the darkness
with His grace, He sets us free.

You don’t have to be a Magi,
or a shepherd coming from afar
you can accept the gift of Jesus . . .
today, right from where you are!

John 14:6

“Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.”
