A Joy Jump ~

unspeakable-joy-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some Christians,
seem to be grumpy
fussy and sulky
and a little bit crabby.

They seldom smile,
or say something nice
it’s as if their hope . . .
has turned dry as ice.

Some Christians,
seem to be uptight
I can hardly see
a flicker of light.

They barely laugh,
seldom do they grin
it’s as if their peace . . .
took one on the chin.

Oh, Lord if You see,
me being a grump
give my heart . . .
an eternal joy jump!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Sticky Note From God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deboran ann. ~ 04.26.16 ~


Holy Spirit Stirring ~

holy-spirit-by-michaela-baltazar-free-photo-4686

Sometimes down inside,
I feel this warmth within
coming from a place so deep
I can’t explain, just wherein.

There’s a sense of peace,
an inspired calmness
it fills my heart with joy
till it flows with gladness.

As I take it all in,
I feel myself come alive
the feeling it gives me
no words can describe.

I wish I could harness it,
so to always feel this way
I wish I could release it
every second of the day.

Sometimes way down deep,
a feeling rises up and swells
I know it comes from a place
where the Holy Spirit dwells!

Ephesians 1:13

“In whom ye also trusted,
after that ye heard the word of truth,

the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed,

ye were sealed with that holy
Spirit of promise,”

The Gift of Joy ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Joy

Share the gift of eternal joy,
let it rise out of you each day
let the happiness you feel
leave its mark, along your way.

Tell everyone about Jesus,
the cheerfulness that He brings
let them know, He’s the reason
why your heart, this season sings.

Show your joyfulness,
raise your hands, sing your praise
let people see it is Jesus
who has you feeling so amazed.

Let your joy be seen by all,
for the glory of your salvation
let them see the birth of Jesus
is the cause for your elation.

Share the gift of eternal joy,
everyday throughout the year
let the world see your blissfulness
is more than holiday cheer!

they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”

Jesus Centered ~

Jesus be the Center by Radikai Arts free photo #12834

When Jesus is at the heart,
of the things that we do
joy and happiness . . .
will shine brightly through.

When Jesus is at the core,
of our very life . . .
peace will come to us
surpassing all our strife.

When Jesus is at the crux,
of our daily prayers . . .
abundant grace and mercy
will ease away our cares.

When Jesus is at the hub,
of our every single deed
blessings will fall upon us
covering our every need.

When we’re Jesus centered,
in all we say and do . . .
the love He has for us
will make all things new!

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

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.”

Jesus is What You Need ~

Jesus Is What You Need~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann

Losing your way,
in the affairs of life
want to have more joy
a whole lot less strife?

Can’t find the means,
to the proverbial end
tired of looking for . . .
that one true friend?

Getting tripped up,
stumbling all around
wanting something more
but, it just can’t be found?

Don’t know where to look,
not sure which way to go . . .
well, I have the answer
for the hopelessness you know.

There is only one way,
to find true happiness
only One person who can . . .
rid you of your loneliness.

Jesus, is what you need,
the answer to your strife
if you give Him a chance . . .
He’ll forever change your life!

I am the way, the truth, and the life:

Why I am Happy ~

Why I am Happy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Lord, You make me happy,
in You my life is complete
You bring my heart glee
whenever I’m downbeat.

Lord, You make me content,
in You I find true rest
You bring me peace
whenever I feel stressed.

Lord, You make me blissful,
in You there is only hope
You bring up my spirits
whenever I cannot cope.

Lord, You make me cheerful,
in You there’s joy all around
You bring me happiness
whenever I’m feeling down.

Lord, You make me joyful,
in You there are only smiles
You bring my life gladness
no matter what be my trials!

Choose Joy ~

choosejoy CHRISTian poetry deborah ann

Today I’m choosing joy,
I will  not be unhappy
today I’m making sure
nothing will make me grumpy.

I will not be overwhelmed,
instead I’ll be elated
no matter my circumstance
my spirit won’t get deflated.

Today I am choosing joy,
I’ll do more than just try
today I will make sure
happy tears are all I cry.

I’ll not feel sorry for myself,
or let my heart be troubled
I’ll let the gladness that I feel
burst through my worry bubble.

Today I am choosing joy,
I have the perfect remedy
today I’m going to Jesus . . .
for my happiness therapy!

Childlike Faith ~

Childlike Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Give me faith like a child,
without fear and doubt
where the Word of God
can root, grow and sprout.

Give me an attitude,
that believes readily
where happiness and joy
overflows steadily.

Give me childlike faith,
pure and simple . . .
one that is steadfast
not unsure or fickle.

Give me a mindset,
that to God is reachable
a mind that is open
hungry and teachable.

Give me a heart,
that is willing to obey
that humbly follows
without going astray.

Give me a soul,
that is calm and quiet
one that on God
is always reliant.

Give me faith like a child,
innocent and sweet
eagerly anticipating the day
when  Jesus and I will meet!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:25
King James Version

“At that time Jesus
answered and said,

I thank thee, O Father,
Lord of heaven and earth,

because thou hast hid these
things from the wise
and prudent,

and hast revealed
them unto babes.”

The Joy of Knowing Jesus ~

The Joy Of Jesus ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s nothing quite like,
the joy of knowing Jesus
how in every circumstance
He is always with us.

No matter the situation,
Jesus is always there
our happiness is in knowing
our burdens He will bear.

In times of want and need,
whatever be our condition
our gladness is in knowing
He’ll supply each provision.

When feeling overwhelmed,
by so many troubling things
our peace comes from knowing
the joy ~ Jesus brings!

Roses Aren't Always Red ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Roses aren’t always red,
violets can be white or blue
but what never changes ~ Lord
is the love coming from You.

I know I’m not perfect,
but You love me any way
Your love is like the sunshine
that brightens up my day.

You love me like no other,
what more could I need
for Your love comes with . . .
a satisfaction guaranteed.

Your love is in my heart,
I can feel it in each beat
without it my life . . .
would be incomplete.

Roses sometimes are red,
violets may come blue
but Your love for me ~ Lord
remains constantly true!

True Love ~

Love CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

True love does not boast,
it’s not embedded with pride
love that is forthright
hasn’t anything to hide.

It is not offensive,
carefully choosing its words
it’s pleasing and uplifting
joy and happiness it stirs.

It doesn’t act haughty,
or say things causing pain
love that is agape . . .
has nothing for it to gain.

Love that comes from Jesus,
is filled with truth and light
love that is not self-seeking
is pleasing in God’s sight!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4
King James Version

“Charity suffereth long, and is kind;
charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,”

I wish you contentment,

Joyfully Awed ~

Joy banishes all fear,
removes any doubt
joy that is everlasting
cannot be cast out.

Joy is the Good News,
a Savior has come
joy opens the door
to His eternal kingdom.

Joy that is great,
brings endless gladness
joy that is mighty
brings to all happiness.

Joy is for everyone,
to have and behold
this kind of joy
is heavenly gold.

Joy sets free a sinner,
brings glory to God
all who come to Jesus
will be joyfully awed!

My Song of Trust ~

There is a song,
rising up in me
it’s full of joy
happiness and glee.

It’s melody,
is one that I hum
and on my heart stings
I can feel it strum.

My two hands,
can’t seem to stay still
they rise and clap
with the gladness I feel.

My arms lift up,
as I feel God’s power flow
and in my soul
I sense His Spirit’s glow.

My song is Jesus,
and every day I sing
my praises to Him
for the hope, He brings.

So, rise up with me,
let all your troubles go
sing my song of trust
and His joy you will know!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:12
King James Version

“For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth
with peace: the mountains and the hills shall
break forth before you into singing, and all
the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”

Going Home ~

Going Home ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I know the valley is before me,
there’s nothing for me to fear
alone I’ll walk death’s path
but, God promises to be near.

His love shall be my comfort,
His strength will get me through
on the other side of the shadow
His light shines bright and true.

I will go to sleep in darkness,
awake to find eternal peace
His glory will bring me happiness
my joy will never end or cease.

The shadow looms ahead of me,
in a future time that is unknown
but, I haven’t anything to fear . . .
for, I’ll just be going home!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4
King James Version

“Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

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)
