Cares Unbound ~

Cares Unbound ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some people carry,
the world’s weight
for on their shoulder
their troubles grate.

Some people worry,
about everything
for on their minds
fear twists and wrings.

Some people stress,
over everyday life
for on their hearts
grinds daily strife.

Some people suffer,
from depression
for on their souls
is guilt’s impression.

Some people carry,
their burdens around
but if  they’d turn to Jesus
their cares, He’d unbound!

Guilty People ~

Guilty people,
are everywhere
they are sinners
but, they don’t care.

They have freedom,
or so they think so
but, true liberty
they do not know.

Guilty people,
are all around
looking for peace
but none is found.

They go about,
the things they do
worldly desires
they hotly pursue.

Guilty people,
believe not in God
but, they will know
His judgment rod.

They live their life,
to its fullest
to them Jesus
is but foolish.

Guilty people,
are everywhere
tis why the Good News
we need to share!

God’s Mercy, Love and Grace ~

God's Grace, Mercy and Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Sometimes my mind wanders,
all over the place . . .
but, it always comes back
to God’s amazing grace.

Some days I try to make it,
on my very own . . .
but, I’m always lead back
to God’s loving throne.

Sometimes my faith,
begins to doubt and waiver
but, I’m always brought back
to God’s abundant favor.

Sometimes for my wrongs,
I still feel I am guilty
but, it always comes around
to God’s tender mercy.

Sometimes my feet roam,
as I run the faithful race . . .
but, they always return
to God’s mercy, love and grace!

Guilt Free ~

Not Guitly used with permission IBible Verses

God, forgives you,
and you must too
or else your guilt
will eat away at you.

Guilt is your enemy,
it devours the soul
only Jesus can heal
and make it whole.

Guilt condemns you,
it’ll convict and blame
only Jesus’ love bears
all of your shame.

Guilt is destructive,
with it you’ll contend
but, on Jesus’ grace
you can depend.

God, forgives you,
and you must too
for Jesus took guilt’s
punishment for you!

His Grace Is Sufficient ~

 

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Some people feel guilty,
some still feel the shame
for their past sin
they still take the blame.

They refuse to let go,
of their past indiscretions
so they hang on to
their former transgressions.

But, once you’re repented,
there’s no need to go back
Jesus died for all of your sins
His grace, you’ll never lack.

For, grace covers you now,
it’s covered what you’ve done
it’ll cover you all the way till
you enter into His kingdom.

So, throw away your guilt,
say goodbye to all the blame
Jesus’ gift of sufficient grace
is yours, right now to claim!

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

2 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory
in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Not Guilty!

Saved by Jon Tomero free photo #7929

I have walked on this earth,
for many, many years . . .
I’ve stumbled and I’ve fallen
over my doubts and my fears.

Many times I have thought,
another step I could not take
and life’s troubling journey
I just did not want to make.

I struggled with the frantic pace,
I wrestled with the anxious stride
until the day, I came to realize
I was marching to my own pride.

I knew I needed deliverance,
from the course that I was on
and that is when I felt my life
to God being forever drawn.

He set me on a new path,
and saved me from the pit
He found me not guilty
and my sins, He did acquit!

God Gave ~

John 3.16 IBible Verses

God gave unto the world,
His only begotten Son
the sacrifice and atonement
for the sins of everyone.

On the cross He became,
the substitute to fulfill the law
Jesus became the  ransom
for our every wicked flaw.

He delivered us from our guilt,
and put our sins away forever
in the surrender of His life He gave
what we could not endeavor.

Now we are His people,
purchased out of His great love
sanctified and set apart
until we meet one day above!

On His Sparrow’s Wing~

How Great A Love used permission DoorPost Verses on facebook

I heard upon the morning song, the sweetest words fly by “I am always with you, forever by your side.”

As the words soared onward, my heart began to sing for I heard the voice of Jesus on His sparrows wing.

The tender tune picked up, my aching soul within it was as if His tiny sparrow sailed off with my every sin.

As the day moved forward, the sparrows little lilt . . . flew by my heart once more and took with him my guilt!

Goodbye to Guilt . . .

For years with guilt and shame,
I wrestled and I fought . . .
thinking that it was the payment
that all my sins had bought.

It was hard to move forward,
they kept pushing me back
I thought it was my punishment
for the faith that I lacked.

Whenever I would forget them,
Satan came along to remind
and with each remembrance
they became harder to put behind.

Then one day the Lord asked me,
“Why did I die for you?”
And after that conversation,
I knew what I had to do.

I said goodbye to guilt,
and bid farewell to all my shame
for Jesus took them upon Himself
and He endured all my blame.

For years with guilt and shame,
I wrestled and fought . . .
but then Jesus reminded me
“If you hold on to them . . .

. . . I died for naught.”

Isaiah 38:17

“Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but
thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from

Test My Heart, Lord

Love by Josiah Kopp free photo#7351

Test my heart, Lord,
see what’s inside . . .

Look low, look deep,
search far, search wide
till there’s nothing left
for me to hide.

Pull on fears suspicions,
push on doubts admissions
pick away at its coldness,
cut away egos boldness.

Purge out selfish pride,
pluck out the greedy side
haul off Satan’s lies
rip out its lusting eyes.

Pull up evils root,
yank up sins pursuit
gather up all the pain
wash away guilt’s stain.

Test my heart Lord,
till it’s true and blue. . .

Search here, search there,
look at all I say and do
till all my heart holds . . .
is the love I have for You!

Bankrupt Lives ~

Bankrupt Lives ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Guilt was erased from us that day,
and for our souls, Jesus died and bled
when the thorns of our unrighteousness
were crowned around His perfect head.

Our vile sins are the thrash marks,
that were flogged deep into His chest
the Son of God became our justification,
and paid the price ~ for our eternal rest.

Bankrupt lives, on top of faithful shoulders,
our faults and unbelief He had to bear
the burden of each of our transgressions
on the Cross of Calvary Jesus had to wear.

Our hopelessness was sealed and nailed,
then hung upon that wooden bar
spikes driven into His hands and feet
the Lamb of God became our wayward scar.

The debt of our blame and condemnation,
was plunged deep into His forgiving side
piercing through to heaven’s gate
so He could receive His faithful bride.

Our rebellious, wicked, evil ways,
caught up to Him on that promised day
when at last it was finally over
His mercy became for us, the only way.

Free, unmerited, not deserving favor,
granted by God’s grace, and grace alone
His work on the cross finally finished
now He sits upon heaven’s throne.

Oh, that glorious, wonderful day,
when Christ rose from His earthly grave
bankrupt lives, now rich and lush
for His life ~ to all ~ He gave.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 7:27
King James Version

“Who needeth not daily, as those high priests,
to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins,
and then for the people’s: for this he did once,
when he offered up himself.”

Holding the Line

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)
