Opt For Joy ~

 

Opt for joy,
it will not disappoint
if you do
it’ll be a turning point.

For joy always brings,
a sense of relief
as you give to Jesus
the cause of your grief.

Prefer joyfulness,
over being downtrodden
let the love of Jesus
make your smile broaden.

For happiness is a choice,
each day we can make
and rejoicing in the Lord
will cause a grin to break.

Choose joy,
you’ll be happier if you do
then just watch what Jesus  . . .
is willing to do for you!

Philippians 4:4

“Rejoice in the Lord always:
and again I say, Rejoice.”

Joyful Are We ~

Joyful are we,
who are saved by grace
who Jesus’ love
our hearts embrace.

Happy are we,
who trust in the Lord
who know His peace
will be our reward.

Blessed are we,
who hope in a future
where Jesus will be
our King and ruler.

Grateful are we,
who in faith believe
the Spirit of Jesus
is ours to receive.

Joyful are we,
who know God’s favor
who believe Jesus is
our risen Savior!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:3

“Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant
mercy hath begotten us again
unto a lively hope by the
resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead,”

The Merry Heart ~

The Merry Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The merry heart,
in God has peace
its full of joy
that does not cease.

It wears a smile,
even when its sad
for the joyful heart
is always glad.

The merry heart,
exudes cheerfulness
its full of delight
imparts happiness.

It trusts in God,
in and for all things
for it is thankful
for whatever He brings.

The merry heart,
has a living hope
its full of joy . . .
it refuses to mope!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 17:22

“A merry heart doeth good
like a medicine:
but a broken spirit
drieth the bones.”

My Confidence ~ My Hope

hope-is-in-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My confidence is in the Lord,
for I know He cares for me
I place my hope in Him
not in the things, I can see.

He protects and shelters me,
in His goodness with His grace
with Him any problem
I’m able to confidently face.

I know I can count on Him,
for wisdom and for some rest
for He knows what I need
has for me only the best.

I am so very happy,
for in the Lord I have peace
His compassion never fails me
my hope in Him shall not cease!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 146:5
King James Version

“Happy is he that hath
the God of Jacob for his help,

whose hope is in the Lord his God:”

Pro-Life ~

bringlife-CHRISTian poetry by debroah ann

It is a choice,
we all have to make
we can choose life
or death can be our fate.

It’s evil verses good,
right over wrong
obedience or rebellion
dying weak or living strong.

We can choose to follow,
or go our own way
it’s up to us to decide
how we’ll live out our days.

We can be happy and joyful,
or be miserable and unfulfilled
we can be lost and forsaken
or choose to be Spirit filled.

It is a choice,
we all make in this life
we can be eternally blessed
or be cursed with endless strife.

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

Deuteronomy 30:19
King James Version

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:
therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”
