Jesus is ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~
Jesus is . . .
my eternal Friend
the Deliverer of my soul
the One who completes me
the One who makes me whole.

Jesus is . . .
my Redeemer
the Forgiver of my wrongs
the One who blesses me
the One who keeps me strong.

Jesus is . . .
my Helper
the Comforter of my heart
the One who I always turn to
the One who’ll never depart.

Jesus is . . .
my Shepherd
the Light in which I see
the One whose Word is Truth
the One who leads and guides me.

Jesus is . . .
my Healer
the  Hope living inside me
the One who perfects me
the One whose image, I pray to be.

Jesus is . . .
my Savior
the Risen Lord and my King
the One who promises to everyone
I will make new all things!

Here’s My Heart ~

Take My Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, here is my heart,
take it and mold it
form it into something
that Your life, will fit.

Lord, here is my heart,
it’s Yours to hold
do with it something
that for You, is bold.

Lord, here is my heart,
turn it into pure gold
make it into a heart
that for You, won’t turn cold.

Lord, here is my heart,
You can have my soul too
take me, form me, mold me
to be more like You!

Endless Love ~

Endless Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s love is endless,
we cannot measure it
in the entire universe
not all of it, would fit.

The expansiveness,
of the world around us
can’t contain all His love
it would ooze and gush.

Even in the vastness,
of the space above
could the totality of it
be filled with His love.

The earth and seas,
and all that is below
could not hold His love
for it would overflow.

God’s love is endless,
the lost cannot fathom it
but for those who know Him
it is a perfect fit!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:18-19
King James Version

“May be able to comprehend with all saints
what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”

Captured Thoughts

taking-every-thought-captive CHRISTIAN poetry by deborah ann

Capture my thoughts Lord,
free me in the truth
let me follow Thy Word
as in the days of my youth.

With childlike faith,
take into custody my mind
keep me close to You
so Your ways I can find.

Control and restrain me,
release me not from Thy hold
may my heart for You
not turn luke-warm or cold.

Let me not be disillusioned,
by the wisdom of man
seize upon my belief
show me Your perfect plan.

Capture my thoughts Lord,
be in complete control
I give to You my life . . .
let not man conquer my soul!

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

2 Corinthians 10:5
King James Version

“Casting down imaginations,
and every high thing that exalteth itself

every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

From God’s Point of View!

God Looks At The Heart used with permission Door Post Verses

Don’t waste another hour,
don’t let a minute slip by you
it’s time to look at your life
from God’s point of view.

Take a look at your values,
what you admire the most
look at all the things you have
how much you love to boast.

Take a look at your leisure time,
what with it you do . . .
take a look at the hours spent
from God’s point of view.

Take a look at your schedule,
the time you spend away
take a look at the way you think
your actions throughout the day.

Take a look at all the people
who pal around with you
take a look at these relationships
from God’s point of view.

Now, take a look at the time,
you spend studying the Word
take a look at how you react
to the truth that you’ve heard.

Take a look at your walk of faith
how far it’s gotten you . . .
now, take a look at your heart
from God’s point of view!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Samuel 16:7
King James Version

“But the Lord said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance,
or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him:
for the Lord seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

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!

Sticks and Stones ~

Tongues of Fire by Johannes Stafuffer free photo #5906

Sticks and stones,
indeed break bones
but, names still hurt
when they are thrown.

Hot, fiery words,
meant to cause pain
for years and years
the flames remain.

Bones they mend,
bones they heal
but, names poison
the way we feel.

They penetrate,
deep, so deep
wounded souls
weep and weep.

Before you cast,
an angry word
think of the ones
you too have heard.

For sticks might break,
stones can miss their mark
but names, oh names . . .
always hits ~ the heart!

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

James 3:6
King James Version

“And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity:
so is the tongue among our members,
that it defileth the whole body,
and setteth on fire the course of nature;
and it is set on fire of hell.”

A Heart Full of Grace ~

Grace by Nathan Furr free photo #12440

When a heart is full of grace,
it is a heart that is kind
compassion for others
it always tries to find.

It puts on humility,
wears the cloak of patience
it dresses itself with modesty
wears the robe of justice.

It is wrapped in peace,
It’s covered in forgiveness
drapes itself with love
it’s swathed in gentleness.

When a heart is full of grace,
gratitude is its garment
the Word of God . . .
is its wardrobe requirement!

~~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12
King James Version

Put on therefore, as the elect of God,
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness, longsuffering;”

Our Burden Bearer ~

cast-all-your-burdens-to-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah belka

Lord, our burden bearer,
take from us our care
take away the heaviness
our tired hearts wear.

Take from us our weariness,
take from us our trouble
take away the listlessness
our tired souls battle.

Take from us our load,
take from us the heavy weight
take away the problems
on our tired minds that grate.

Take from us our pain,
take from us the deep ache
take away all the sorrow
and heal our heartbreak!

Heart Matters ~

Heart Matters ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo/Creation/Swap

There isn’t a heart too cold,
that God can’t melt
there isn’t one too stony
where He can’t be felt.

There isn’t a heart too cynical,
that God can’t shake
there isn’t one too hardened
that He can’t break.

There isn’t a heart too rigid,
that God can’t move
there isn’t a heart too rough
that He can’t smooth.

There isn’t a heart too lost,
that God can’t find
there isn’t a heart too far off
that He’d leave behind.

There isn’t a heart too broken,
that God can’t love
there isn’t a heart in the world
that He would ever let go of.

~~~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,

Lord, I’ll seek you in the morning,
I’ll seek you throughout the night
I’ll seek You through the day
I’ll seek You with all my might.

Change of Heart ~

change_your_heart_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God can take the stony-heart,
the self-centered and defiant
change it into something . . .
that is on Him, truly reliant.

He can cut out the aloofness,
of a heart set in its own way
sever the ties it has to the world
give it no more reason to stray.

He can smooth out the roughness,
in a heart made of stone
fill it with longing for all things
that come from His throne.

He can take that cold and hard,
heart beating inside of you . . .
turn it into one full of passion
give it a purpose, to all you do.

A heart of flesh God will give you,
one that lives and breathes
in you a new spirit He will put
where faith and truth breeds.

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

Ezekiel 36:26
King James Version

“A new heart
also will I give you,

and a new spirit
will I put within you:

and I will take away
the stony heart
out of your flesh,

and I will give you
an heart of flesh.”

On The Wings of A Dove ~

Dove used with permission Creation Swap

Sweet Savior Jesus,
perpetual love . . .
sends me His Spirit
on the wings of a dove.

Whispers my name,
on His soaring flight
cooing to me
to be His delight.

Spreading His wings,
to shelter me in
nuzzles my heart
to get closer to Him.

Lands on my soul,
nudges me the way
I follow after Him
all of my days.

Sweet Savior Jesus,
eternal love . . .
taking me home
on the wings of a dove!

~~~~~~~~

Song of Solomon 2:14

As The Lord Giveth . . .

As the Lord giveth,
He can take it away  . . .
when His plans change
He’ll make another way.

One day your fine,
the next one ~ not so much
when God’s plans change
it’s by His design and touch.

One moment you have,
the next one ~ you have naught
when God’s plans change
there’s a lesson to be taught.

As the Lord giveth,
sometimes He takes it away
when His plans change
your heart too ~ He will sway.

One second it’s all yours,
the next one ~ it’s all gone
when God’s plans change
to Him you will be drawn.

For when God changes His plans,
be willing to change yours too
for He has mightier things . . .
that He wants you to do!

Job 1:21

The Real Housewife in God’s Home!

Proverbs 31.25  used with permission Creation Swap

The real housewife in God’s home,
isn’t like the one in Beverly Hills
for you won’t see her strutting about
in a short skirt and her high heels.

She has a heart that is spun of gold,
she’s full of wisdom and God’s grace
she doesn’t wear a lot of makeup
to cover her unfaithful, plastic face.

Her husband is pleased with her,
he trusts her to do what is right
she is not quarrelsome or angry
with him she does not pick a fight.

She manages all of his earthly affairs,
she doesn’t have one with her neighbor
she makes her husband proud of her
and in his eyes she holds his favor.

The real housewife in God’s house,
doesn’t go to fancy, pricey dining places
she plants, reaps, and serves her meals
to her families happy, grateful faces.

She isn’t a nosey, busy body,
and gossip to her is a dirty word
instead she shares the Gospel truth
spreading the goodness she has heard.

She isn’t an ambitious career woman,
who leaves her family to fend for itself
she is a strong, dignified, caring woman
who gives God her inner and outer self.

Her husband and children love her,
and respect her kind, generous ways
she’s not like the wives of Beverly Hills
for, she’s given God all her living days!

who loved me,
and gave himself for me.

Full Submission!

Throne of the Heart by Stephen Corbett free photo #10163

There is a love ~
that’s for God alone
in our hearts He must
sit on the throne.

For God, is a jealous God,
He will not tolerate
a divided heart . . .
or one that desecrates.

There cannot be,
another lover of our soul

our eternal goal.

For His beauty,

He must be the only object
of our affection.

So give to Him ~
His high and lofty position
then let your heart to Him
be in full submission!
