The Potter Stands Ready ~

The Potter Stands Ready ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Potter stands ready,
to patch and to restore
the broken heart of those
who can’t take anymore.

He sees the shattered soul,
all of the devastation
He knows it needs to find
in His hands, liberation.

He takes the ruined pieces,
places them upon His wheel
spins them with His mercy
so they may begin to heal.

He mends the brokenness,
with His  love and grace
then with hope and peace
He fills in the empty space.

The Potter stands ready,
to mend, heal and to restore
every single broken heart
who knocks on the Potter’s door!

Jeremiah 18:4

“And the vessel that he made of clay
was marred in the hand of the potter:
so he made it again another vessel,
as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

Call on Jesus ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ When I Call- IBible Verses

Sometimes we call 911,
when there’s an emergency
sometimes we call our friends
when there’s an urgency.

Sometimes we call our doctor,
when we’re not feeling well
sometimes we call our pastor
when troubles begin to swell.

Sometimes we call a lawyer,
when we think there’s no hope
sometimes we call a counselor
when we’re unable to cope.

Sometimes we call our neighbor,
just for a cup of kindness
sometimes we call our family
for a little bit of guidance.

But, whoever calls on the Lord,
will have all these things
for, He’ll rescue, deliver, heal
no matter what life brings.

So, when you need assistance,
call on Jesus right away . . .
then rest in the knowledge
help is on the way!

Exposed ~

God's Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In God’s light,
all things become clear
for it exposes the darkness
the things we should all fear.

It divulges the lies,
the secrets we hold onto
in the shadows it illuminates
the evil things we are into.

In God’s light,
sin cannot be concealed
for our every hidden thought
will be bared and revealed.

It separates the bad,
from what is honest and just
the day Light entered the world
it exposed the wickedness in us.

In God’s eternal light,
Jesus came to heal . . .
the darkness in our hearts
so His love  ~ He could reveal!

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

Luke 1:79
King James Version

“To give light to them that sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

The Heart of Christ ~

let-this-mind-be-in-you CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
to love one and all . . .
to forgive the one who stumbles
to lift up the ones who fall.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d see others deepest need
I’d minister to the lost
their souls to heaven I’d lead.

Oh, to have the life of Christ,
to see all in His saving light
to heal the ailing hearts
to give all eternal sight.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d take His Word across the land
I’d lead others to His Kingdom
deliver the unsaved into His hand.

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
beating deep inside me . . .
to have the mind just like Jesus
oh, how wonderful that would be!

King James Version

“Let this mind be in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus:”

I am My Brother’s Keeper ~

I am My Brothers' Keeper  CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
I am my brother’s keeper,
I help him to understand
I encourage him to put
his life into God’s hand.

I am my sister’s keeper,
I help her to see the light
I encourage her to grow
to keep Jesus in her sight.

I am my neighbor’s keeper,
I pray for their daily needs
I tell them to always listen
to follow where God leads.

I am my mother’s keeper,
in her old age I help her out
I hold her hand when lonely
to calm her fears and doubt.

I am my father’s keeper,
I lift to God, his very soul
I pray each day and night
Jesus will make him whole.

I am my children’s keeper,
I listen to their concerns
I pray as they become adults
God’s will, they may discern.

The Lord is my keeper,
He is with me every day
He watches over me . . .
so souls to Him,  I can sway.

~~~~~~~~~

A New Dawn ~

Brand New Day by Gary Brower free photo #1088

Every day is a chance,
to renew your mind
every new dawn given
there’s new hope to find.

Every day is a chance,
for your Bible to explore
every new dawn given
let God heal and restore.

Every day is a chance,
to grow in His grace
every new dawn given
seek to find His face.

Every day is a chance,
to grow and to learn
every new dawn given
give God your concern.

Every day is a chance,
to get closer to the Lord
every new dawn given
to Jesus, look toward.

Every day is a chance,
to give God your strife
every new dawn given
let Jesus into your life!

Crying out to God ~

Crying out to God  CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes, I cry out to God,
when being pushed to my limit
I pray asking Him to bring me
the full strength of His Spirit.

Whenever I am frighten,
when I’m knee-deep in my fears
I cry out for His light to shine
till the darkness disappears.

When my troubles hang on,
when they won’t let go of me
I cry out for His mighty power
so I can make Satan flee.

When illness comes my way,
when the pain keeps on growing
I cry out for His healing touch
in my life to keep flowing.

When sad and depressed,
when I become withdrawn
I cry out for His help
to keep on, pressing on.

Crying out to God,
is so natural to do . . .
for when it becomes a habit
prayer becomes a part of you!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6
King James Version

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God.”

Love and Marriage?

therefore-what-god-has-joined-together-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Spouse not listening,
doesn’t hear what you say
thinking of parting . . .
going off your own way?

Wife doesn’t get you,
always nagging and complaining
thinking of finding . . .
a relationship more sustaining?

Husband mad and angry,
always yells and screams
thinking of looking . . .
for the man of your dreams?

Children too stubborn,
rebellious and defiant
thinking of going . . .
so they’ll be more compliant?

In-laws causing problems,
always meddling in your life
thinking of departing. . .
to put an end to the strife?

Every marriage,
brings irritation and frustration
but if  you call it quits . . .
it’ll bring spiritual starvation.

For, what God has put together,
He doesn’t want to see fall apart
your marriage He can heal . . .
if you let Him, take hold of your heart!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 19:6
King James Version

“Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together,
let not man put asunder.”

Only on The Cross ~

Only on the Cross ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Only on the cross,
will you find forgiveness
only on the cross will love
strengthen your weakness.

Only on the cross,
will you find happiness
only on the cross will love
ease your loneliness.

Only on the cross,
will you find inner peace
only on the cross will love
cause faith to be released.

Only on the cross,
will you find eternal grace
only on the cross will love
cause your sins to be erased

Only on the cross,
will you find love that is real
only on the cross . . .
can love restore and heal!

~~~~~~~~

John 3:16
King James Version

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

God Will Mend ~

God Will Mend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I have lived a life of losses,
with hardship as my friend
and I’ve come to understand
that God will always mend.

For there is not a problem,
too great for Him to take
it’s when we don’t go to Him
we make our first mistake.

There isn’t a broken heart,
which He cannot repair
not a soul He won’t save
if they come to Him in prayer.

No trouble is too imposing,
no worry is too small
for Jesus came to heal
and restore one and all.

So no matter what your loss,
no matter where you’ve been
let God repair and mend
the effects of pain and sin!

Just Think ~

Just Think ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He still moves mountains,
casts them into the sea
just think what He can do
for you and me.

He heals the lame,
makes the blind eye see
just think what He can do
for you and me.

He casts out demons,
make them run and flee
just think what He can do
for you and me.

He saves the sinner,
from evil He sets free
just think what He can do
for you and me.

He rewards the faithful,
just like me and you . . .
and when we trust in Jesus
there’s nothing He can’t do!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20
King James Version

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:

for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith

as a grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,

Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;

and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.”

Grace Saw Beyond ~

God has Bee Gracious to Me used with permission from Darrell Creswell

Grace saw beyond,
the worthless and unworthy
it looked past the sin
with its unmerited mercy.

Grace saw beyond,
the bondage of the soul
it broke loose the yoke
to heal and make whole.

Grace saw beyond,
the outward behavior
it  looked past the wickedness
with its unwarranted favor.

Grace saw beyond,
the look of the proud
it recognized the helpless
standing out in a crowd.

Grace saw beyond,
the stony-human heart
it looked past the coldness
so love it could impart.

Grace saw beyond,
corruption, lust and greed
it came in the name of Jesus
so from works we’d be freed!

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

2 Timothy 1:9
King James Version

“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose and grace,
which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began”

Are You Ready?

Rethink Life with Jesus free photo  by Steve Smith from Creation Swap

Are you ready to make the changes,
necessary in your life
are you willing to give the Lord
all your worldly strife?

Are you ready to stop wandering,
in the wilderness of your mind
are you ready for self-renewal
so God’s perfect will you can find?

Are you ready to make the changes,
are you ready to  proclaim
that you have a Godly right
to abundant life in Jesus’ name?

The accuser may tell you,
you’re not worthy of His blessings
but you must know by now . . .
with your head, he is just messing!

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

Romans 12:2
King James Version

“And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

In His Hands ~

In His Hands ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes problems come,
changing all our plans . . .
making it ever clearer
all things are in God’s hands.

Hands that long to hold,
to comfort and to console
hands that want to heal
the ache within the soul.

Hands that desire to reach,
far into the heart and mind
hands that hold perfect peace
for anxious ones to find.

Hands that crave to embrace,
grieving hearts in the night
hands that hunger to lead
the lost into His saving light.

Hands that are capable,
hands confident and sure
hands that calm the storms
hands that holds life’s cure.

Sometimes problems come,
and we must change our plans
so that we may come to rest . . .
in His almighty hands!

Mercy Me!

psalm-63-4 by darrell creswell used with permission

Lord of my comfort,
has set me free
from this life of misery
healed my heart
then went beyond
and now we have
an eternal bond.

Oh, how I love Him,
Mercy me . . .
my precious Jesus
has set me free.

Lord of my comfort,
has given to me
a blessed ~ joyous glee
healed my body
restored my soul
now I am finally
complete and whole.

Oh, how I love Him,
Mercy me . . .
my precious Jesus
has set me free.

Lord of my comfort,
bestowed upon me
a new life ~ so that I could be
wrapped up in His Spirit
caught up in His love
now I know what my life
has been devoid of.

Oh, how I love Him,
Mercy me
my precious Jesus
has set me free!

God Still Moves . . .

hands free photo

He still moves mountains,
He will remove yours too
He can do the impossible
because . . .  He loves you.

He parts the sea,
He turns water into wine
He can restore your life
by making you, His vine.

He heals the sick,
He helps blind men to see
He can open up your eyes
just like He did . . . for me.

He makes the lame walk,
He can turn your life around
He can show you the way
guide you, to solid ground.

Yes, God can change you,
right where you are
He can make you complete
heal every ugly scar.

He still does miracles,
He will perform one today
for He is the Potter . . .
and you are His clay!

The Broken Heart ~

The Broken Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A broken heart,
a soul that shatters
needs the One
who really matters.

Though time cures,
the hurting heart
Jesus will heal . . .
the broken part

Life is unkind,
can be so unfair
and we need Jesus
our pain to bear.

Human affection,
can be so cruel
but to Jesus we are
a precious jewel.

Jesus loves,
the broken heart
from the hurting one
He’ll never part!

~~~~~~

King James Version

unto them that are of
a broken heart;

 and saveth such as be
of a contrite spirit.”

Pierced ~

Pierced ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Pierced by our sins,
afflicted with their pain
the Son of God dies
for our eternal gain.

Crushed and rejected,
bearer of our sickness
His stripes are a display
of grace and forgiveness.

Stricken and cut down,
all our iniquities taken
the Healer of humanity
hangs dying and forsaken.

Bruised but not broken,
Jesus lives  on today . . .
but the world from Him
still turns  the other way.

Pierced and afflicted,
for eternities gain
Jesus nailed to the cross
Oh, think of the pain!

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

Isaiah 53:4-6
King James Version

“Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the Lord hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”
