I Love Jesus ~

I love Jesus,
this I can’t deny
His love for me
I’ll forever rely.

I trust Jesus,
He trusts me . . .
He’s my anchor
on life’s stormy sea.

I delight in Jesus,
He delights in me
one day in heaven
we are going to be.

I believe in Jesus,
He believes in me
He gives me faith
in what I can’t see.

I’m a friend of Jesus,
He’s befriended me
no greater love . . .
will I ever see!

~~~~~

John 15:13

” Greater love hath
no man than this,
that a man lay down
his life for his friends.”

Bursts of Spring ~

Bursts of Spring,
are in the air . . .
tiny glimpses of
days warm and fair.

A tree bud,
a poppy bloom
heals the ache
of winter’s gloom.

Bursts of Spring,
fill my sights
to warm my thoughts
on still cold nights.

A bird’s faint song,
a mostly blue sky
the last snow flake
to float on by.

Little-bitty bursts of Spring,
God is sending  . . .
for it’s the season we need
His loving tending!

~~~~~~~

Proverbs 27:25

“The hay appeareth,
and the tender grass
sheweth itself,
and herbs of the
mountains are gathered.”

Son Rise ~

Lord, open up eyes,
and hearts too
so others may today . . .
come to know You.

Open up their minds,
let Your love sink in
so others may today
be forgiven of their sin.

Open up their ears,
let them really hear
the reason Your Father
even sent You here.

Open up their souls,
to Your eternal grace
so others may today
Your life in theirs embrace.

Father, open up souls,
ears, hearts and eyes
so others may today . . .
see Your glorious Son rise!

” Jesus said unto her,
I am the resurrection,

he that believeth in me,
though he were dead,
yet shall he live:”

Happy
Resurrection Day


The Grace of A Savior ~

God has for us,
an overflowing supply
of mercy and grace
for us to daily apply.

We can put it on,
be it night or day
we just need to ask
for it, when we pray.

Abundant it is,
it will never run out
it’s what being forgiven
is really all about.

God will release it,
as we require
for granting it to us
is His heart’s desire.

For all those in need,
of God’s mercy and favor
all you need is faith . . .
and the grace of a Savior!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:1-2

“Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ:

By whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Fully Persuaded ~

Some people to God,
are wholly persuaded
some people to Jesus
are quasi dedicated.

Some people in God,
are barely invested
some people in Christ
are totally connected.

Some people give God,
only so much
some people have felt
their Savior’s touch.

Some people believe,
with their whole heart
some people’s belief
withered from the start.

Some people to the truth,
are fully persuaded
some people just make . . .
faith, too complicated!

~~~~~

Romans 8:38-39

” For I am persuaded,
that neither death,
nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things
present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us
from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Freed Indeed ~

I am free,
freed of rules and regulations
free to follow Jesus
without any lawful stipulations.

I am free,
freed of doubt and fear
free to follow Jesus
with joyousness and cheer.

I am free,
freed from sin and temptation
free to follow Jesus
on the road to salvation.

I am free,
freed of stress and strife
free to follow Jesus
now that I’ve given Him my life.

I am free,
freed I am indeed
free to follow Jesus
for He is all I need!

~~~~~

John 8:36

“If the Son therefore
shall make you free,
ye shall be free indeed.”

When You Walk in The Light ~

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is a lot of confessing
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of acknowledging,
the sinfulness we daily fight
there is a lot of repenting
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of recognizing,
the evil we daily fight
there is a lot of conviction
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of fessing up.
to  the vices we daily fight
there is a lot to let go of
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is true repentance
when you walk in the light!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7-9

“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.

If we say that we have no sin,
we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness.”

Feeding Our Faith ~

In troubled times,
more trust we need
that is why our faith
we must daily feed.

Then when problems,
are thrown at us
all we have to do
is tap into our trust.

In troubled times,
we need faith strong
for we never know
what may come along.

Then when worries,
start barreling our way
all we have to do
is to trust and pray.

In troubled times,
we need to grow in grace
that’s why we need to feed
our faith on a daily base!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 2:2

“As newborn babes,
desire the sincere milk
of the word, that ye
may grow thereby:

God Has A Plan ~

For every trial,
God has a purpose
He has a plan . . .
before they surface.

He sends us tests,
deserving or not
to see how much
grace we have got.

It is up to us,
how we will react
whether our troubles
our faith will impact.

Some choose to grow,
resentful and bitter
some opt to make
their faith in God bigger.

For every trial,
God sends to us . . .
He’ll reveal the purpose
as we increase our trust!

~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.

To him be glory both
now and for ever. Amen.

Jesus is the Bread of Life,
He promises to deliver
all our spiritual desires
when to Him we surrender.

His life and His death,
bought all our worldly strife

I AM The Resurrection ~

I am the Resurrection,
I am the Life . . .
I am the One who took
upon Myself your strife.

Though someday you’ll die,
eternal life to you I give
if for your sins
you believe I will forgive.

I am the One chosen,
I am my Father’s favor
I am the Christ Jesus
your Lord and Savior.

One day in heaven,
together we will be
but, you must have faith
My Father sent Me.

I am the Resurrection,
new life I bring you
but, you must believe
in Me, for this to be true!

in me shall never die.
Believest thou this?”

for to my Father’s home

I AM The Way ~

Jesus is the Way,
He is the only route
to His Father there’s
no other way about.

People may believe,
there’s another direction
but Jesus came to prove
He’s the only connection.

Jesus is the way,
He is the only path
all other roads will lead
to His Father’s wrath.

People may come up with,
their own substitution
but Jesus became for us
His Father’s restitution.

Jesus is the Way,
there is no other one
they only way to our Father
is through His begotten Son!

~~~~~~~~

John 14:6

“Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh

I AM The Door ~

Jesus is the door,
He is the gateway
everyone has access
He is the only way.

Jesus is the entrance,
He is the opening
to the way of truth
He is life everlasting.

Jesus is the door,
He is the bridgeway
to finding peace with God
He is the only doorway.

Jesus is the access,
He is the passageway
to mercy and forgiveness
He is the only entryway.

Jesus is the door,
He is the invitation
He offers to everyone
the only way to salvation!

I AM The Light of the World ~

Jesus is the light of the world,
a lamp unto the way
He is the hope that shines
in our hearts night and day.

His light is revealing,
to believers or not . . .
His light unmasks the sin
His precious blood bought.

His light is divulging,
through the darkness it glows
His light is discovering
our wickedness it shows.

His light is illuminating,
it reflects all things hidden
His light is piercing
it sees all who are sin driven.

Jesus is the light of the world,
through the darkness He shines
disclosing the evil thoughts
of our hearts, souls and minds!

My Future Hope ~

Man may not show me mercy
man may not show me grace
but, it is in my future hope . . .
my heart and soul embrace.

Man may not forgive me,
man may not show me favor
but, my future hope . . .
is in Jesus, my Lord and Savior.

Man may not get me,
man may not understand
but, it is on my future hope . . .
on which I will firmly stand.

Man may not show me mercy,
forgiveness, favor or grace
but, that will not stop . . .
the future hope I embrace!

God Knows My Frame ~

Lord, You know my frame,
each fragile part
you know my soul
you know my heart.

To You I’m transparent,
You look right through me
no matter what I do
I know that You can see.

Lord, You know my stature,
every single detail
You know when I breathe in
You know when I exhale.

You known I’m human,
You know I’m but dust
You know my possessions
will only turn to rust.

Lord, You know my frame,
my sinful condition
it’s only by Your grace
I have redemption!

Psalm 103:14

“For he knoweth
our frame;

he remembereth
that we are dust.”

Do Not Be Troubled ~

do-not-be-troubled-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Do not be troubled,
do not be afraid
though you think Jesus
your heart has betrayed.

For, there isn’t anything,
stopping Him from loving You
even when you deny Him
in the things you say and do.

Do not be downcast,
do not be disheartened
though Jesus you’ve failed
He has not departed.

For, Jesus sees you’re weak,
He knows you’re in distress
all He wants from you . . .
is your failures to confess.

Do not be troubled,
don’t stay from Him away
Jesus wants to restore
your faith, in Him today!

~~~~~~~~

John 13:37-38

“Peter said unto him,
Lord, why cannot I follow
thee now? I will lay down
my life for thy sake.

Jesus answered him,
Wilt thou lay down thy life
for my sake? Verily, verily,
I say unto thee, The cock
shall not crow, till thou
hast denied me thrice.

John 14:1

“Let not your heart
be troubled:
ye believe in God,
believe also in me.”

In The Spring Of Life ~

In the Spring of life,
all things become new
for those who Lord  . . .
put their trust in You.

For, the season of Spring,
is a time for cleansing
a time for heavy hearts
to do some purging.

In the Spring of life,
there comes a newness
for those who Lord . . .
soak in all of Your goodness.

For, the season of Spring,
is a time for renewing
a time for weary souls
to receive their healing.

In the Spring of life,
all things become new
for those who Lord . . .
give their heart’s to You!

Jesus Died for All ~

Jesus gave Himself for me,
He gave Himself for you
He gave Himself for each
one in the world too.

Jesus died for our sins,
He gave up His life
so we’d be delivered
from its damning strife.

Jesus gave Himself for all,
He gave Himself to set free
He gave Himself to break
on us, satan’s authority.

Jesus became the ransom,
His life was the price
so one day with Him
we could be in paradise.

Jesus gave Himself for you,
He gave Himself for me . . .
so from sin we’d be freed
if we so choose to be!

“And he is the propitiation
for our sins: and not for

My Shepherd’s Care ~

He goes ahead of me,
my safety comes first
He leads me to springs
to quench my thirst.

He keeps His eyes out,
for any danger ahead
He guides me to pastures
where I can be fed.

He knows where I’m at,
if I should get lost
He will seek me out
no matter the cost.

He knows if I’m tired,
He sees my weakness
He cares and loves me
for my own uniqueness.

 He is my Shepherd,
He can be yours too
if you will let Jesus . . .
lead and guide you!

and know my sheep,
and am known of mine.”

We All Have A Past ~

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all cringe . . .
at the memories they bring.

We all need to find,
God’s favor and grace
we all need God’s mercy
so the past we can face.

We all have feelings,
of resentment and ill-will
we all wince . . .
at how others make us feel.

We all need to find,
God’s healing peace
we all need God’s mercy
so our pain He can release.

We all have suffered,
the heartache of rejection
we all recoil . . .
when the past we mention.

We all need to find,
God’s way to forgiveness
we all need God’s mercy
so we can be rid of bitterness.

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all need God’s mercy
and the grace that it brings!

Hebrews 4:16

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy,

in time of need.”

Masks ~

Some hide behind,
masks of every kind
some wear disguises
if only in their mind.

Some camouflage,
who they truly are
some cover up
life’s many battle scars.

Some keep hidden,
the agony they feel
some their heartache
they want to conceal.

Some pretend to be,
happy when they’re not
some try to obscure
the problems they’ve got.

Some gloss over,
their heart’s insecurities
some try to cloak
their personal disabilities.

But, behind the masks,
from God we can’t hide
for He sees everything
going on, on the inside.

So, take off the disguise,
you are hiding behind
and let God transform . . .
your heart and mind!

“For his eyes
are upon the ways of man,
and he seeth all his goings.”
