If We Train Our Children~

If we train our children,
God, to always fear
then they will sense
His Spirit close and near.

If we raise our children,
to have Godly restraint
then with this world
they’ll not want to acquaint.

If we educate our children,
God, to always love
then they will lay
their treasures above.

If we teach our children,
to follow God’s plans
then they will know
their times are in His hands.

If we instruct our children,
to follow God’s ways
then His laws they’ll obey
for the rest of their days.

If we train our children,
right from the start
then from His ways . . .
they will not depart!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 22.6

Train up a child
in the way he should go:
and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.

If It’s The Lord’s Will ~

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I shall
if it’s His plan
it’ll prevail.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
it will be
if it’s His vision
I’ll see.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I can
if it’s His purpose
He’ll plan.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
He’ll show
if it’s His design
I’ll go.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I’ll be excepting
if it’s His time
it’ll be a blessing!

~~~~~~

James 4:15

“For that ye ought to say,
If the Lord will,
we shall live,
and do this, or that.”

Not Mine, But God’s ~

God’s strength, not mine,
my sin, His forgiveness
God’s power, not mine
my battles, His fight.

God’s desires, not mine,
my needs, His supply
God’s demands, not mine
my weakness, His might.

God’s faithfulness, not mine,
my defiance, His mercy
God’s compassion, not mine
my rebellion, His favor.

God’s plans, not mine,
my bad, His good
God’s time, not mine
my life, His design.

God’s kindness, not mine
my shame, His grace
God’s Son, my salvation
my guilt, His redemption.

God’s strength, not mine,
my hope, His promise
God’s peace, not mine
my trust, His alone!

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things
work together for good
to them that love God,
to them who are the called
according to his purpose.”

Man’s Plans ~

You may have plans,
you want to pursue
you may have ideas
brand spanking new.

But God’s purposes,
are the ones to prevail
and His intentions
you won’t be able to derail.

You may have a vision,
you want to maintain
you may have dreams
you want to attain.

But God’s designs,
cannot be thwarted
His will for your life
cannot be aborted.

You may have plans,
but only God will decide
the steps you will take
when He is your guide!

“A man’s heart deviseth his way:
but the Lord directeth his steps.”

Wrestling With God ~

Some people wrestle,
with God’s will
some find it so hard
to wait and be still.

But, those who stop,
their endless struggling
will find God’s will
isn’t really so puzzling.

Some people scuffle,
when disappointed
some end up being
with God disjointed.

But, those who quit,
their constant battling
will find God’s ways
aren’t really so baffling.

Some people wrestle,
with God and His ways
but, those who trust Him
are blessed all their days!

~~~~~~

Genesis 32:24-26

” And Jacob was left alone;
and there wrestled a man
with him until the breaking
of the day.

And when he saw that he
prevailed not against him,
he touched the hollow of
his thigh; and the hollow
of Jacob’s thigh was out
of joint,
as he wrestled with him.

And he said, Let me go,
for the day breaketh.
And he said, I will
not let thee go
except thou bless me.”

You Are Unique ~

you-are-unique-christian-poetry-by-deboran-ann

You are unique,
you are one of a kind
God molded your heart
your soul and your mind.

You are unique,
God created every part
He put you together
right from the start.

You are unique,
God designed all of you
He has a purpose and plan
for all that you do.

You are unique,
God fashioned each crease
He shaped you into
His beautiful masterpiece.

You are unique,
marvelous in every way
tis why you should sing
to Him, your praise today!

~~~~~~

Psalm 139:14

“I will praise thee;
for I am fearfully
and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works;
and that my soul
knoweth right well.”

Life Isn’t Fair ~

life-isnt-fair-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God’s purposes are bigger,
than all of our troubles
He has His reason
for each of our struggles.

God uses our problems,
to temper our hearts
so His grace and mercy
in them He can impart.

God uses our worries,
to help us focus on
why He sent into this world
His own begotten Son.

God uses our burdens,
so we can learn to be
dependent on Jesus
not in what we can see.

God’s purposes are grander,
than our every care . . .
that’s why in the Bible
you won’t hear, life is fair!

work together for good

according to his purpose.”

I Can Remain ~

remaing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I cannot change,
what God has planned
but I can remain . . .
faithful in my stand.

I cannot change,
what is God’s will
but I can remain . . .
peaceful and still.

I cannot change,
God’s directions
but I can remain . . .
ready for corrections.

I cannot change,
God’s heart divine
but I can remain . . .
clinging to the vine.

I cannot change,
what God may send
but I can remain . . .
faithful to the end!

Retired People ~

retired-people-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people when retired,
are just plain bored
but I find myself . . .
getting closer to the Lord.

Some people with their time,
don’t know what to do
but each year I read . . .
my Bible through and through.

Some people sit all day,
in front of the television
but I just close my eyes . . .
so heaven I can envision.

Some people never leave,
the comfort of their home
but I’m always looking . . .
for lost sheep on the roam.

Some people when retired,
see no real meaningfulness
but my life just gets fuller . . .
with God’s purposefulness!

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“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!
