I Came Into This World A Sinner ~

I came into the world,
with not one single thing
and when I go to see Jesus
there’s nothing I can bring.

For, my treasures on earth,
will rust from corruption
but, in heaven they’ve been
everlasting from conception.

I have a lot of stuff,
making my life comfortable
but, they are all to God . . .
worthless and corruptible.

For, God has for me,
eternal life as my treasure
where peace and joy
will flow without measure.

I came into this world,
as a sinner, but I will leave
as someone who in Jesus
has trusted and believed!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust
doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Storing Your Treasures ~

If you store your treasures,
in heaven above . . .
you will become wealthy
in peace, joy and love.

If you are poor,
in a world full of richness
you will be loaded
in hope and forgiveness.

If you are pure,
in thought and deed
your spiritual assets
will exceed your need.

If you are merciful,
around the proud
with God’s grace
you’ll be endowed.

If your treasures,
aren’t worldly plush
the ones in heaven
will be forever flush!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

The World’s Ways ~

The world offers us,
options of every kind
but, I would rather have . . .
God and peace of mind.

The world presents us,
with many ways to have fun
but, I would rather have . . .
God and the gift of His Son

The world acquaints us,
with wicked things to do
but, I would rather have . . .
God and a heavenly view.

The world introduces us,
to life in all its fullness
but, I would rather have . . .
God and all His goodness.

The world offers us,
many roads and paths
but, I would rather stay off . . .
those leading to God’s wrath!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 84:10

“For a day in thy courts
is better than a thousand.
I had rather be a doorkeeper
in the house of my God,
than to dwell in
the tents of wickedness.”

Everything New ~

Everything new,
everything perfect
sin no longer
our lives to affect.

Everything peaceful,
everything calm
now that Jesus’ blood
is salvation’s balm.

Everything joyful,
everything painless
in a twinkling we’ll stand
before God blameless.

Everything pristine,
everything ideal
at the trumpet sound
all will be surreal.

Everything perfect.
everything new
when Jesus comes
for me and you!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15.51-52

Behold! I tell you a mystery.
We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed,
in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trumpet.

For the trumpet will sound,
and the dead will be raised
imperishable, and we
shall be changed.”

Like An Eagle ~

Renewed like an eagle,
my strength restored
the closer I sweep in
to Jesus, my Lord.

He gives me courage,
to go the distance
gives me His strength
when I meet resistance.

Just like an eagle,
the clouds I climb above
rising over my troubles
on the strength of His love.

I have the fortitude,
to  look into the eye
of each raging storm
that passes me by.

He renews my faith,
my trust He restores
until the day like an eagle
into heaven I soar!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“But they that wait
upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with
wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

My Sights Are Set ~

My sights are set,
directly before me
my eyes look forward
to the glory I’ll see.

I concentrate on the path,
dependable and straight
I keep my feet marching
towards the narrow gate.

My eyes are kept alert,
for satan’s pitfall
my legs move onward
so into them I won’t fall.

My steps are committed,
to God and His ways
onto the worldly ones
I set not my gaze.

My sights are set,
fixed on going straight
my feet are pointed
right to the narrow gate!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 4:25-27

“Let thine eyes look right on,
and let thine eyelids look
straight before thee.

Ponder the path of thy feet,
and let all thy ways be
established.

Turn not to the right hand
nor to the left:
remove thy foot from evil.”

Heaven, I’m In Heaven ~

When in the middle of the night
when my worries invade me
I close my eyes and think . . ..
how heaven is going to be.

I can see so much beauty,
a light that is so bright
I couldn’t tell you whether
it was morning, noon or night.

I see no hearts in mourning,
not a single tear is falling
there’s not one soul in pain
nor do I hear any crying.

I see the dwelling place of God,
I hear praises to His name
I see all the things made new
and how nothing is the same.

I see walls of precious gems,
inside a paradise like mansion
I see it has so many rooms
with extra space for expansion.

When in the middle of the day,
when my troubles surround me
I close my eyes and think  . . .
how blissful heaven will be!

Lasting Pleasure ~

There is a narrow path,
leading to lasting pleasure
where joy and peace
are held without measure.

If you keep your eyes,
on what God has for you
the hope of your inheritance
will come right into view.

All of God’s goodness,
will begin to flow
as He reveals to you
the way you should go.

Your heart will be glad,
your soul shall delight
as the glory of God
comes into your sight.

There is a narrow path,
it holds quite a treasure
for those who trust the Lord
it’s full of lasting pleasure!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are
pleasures for evermore.”

Sticky Note From God 03.31.17


One Day ~

One day the heavens,
will begin to sing . . .
their praises to God
along with every living thing.

One day every nation,
and all the people of
will worship their Creator
for His mercy, grace and  love.

One day all the sheep,
will sing jubilantly their praise
to God their Father
for the Son He did raise.

One day the meek and needy,
will stand with the poor
and sing their praises
to God on heaven’s shore.

One day everything,
moving or breathing . . .
to Jesus their Lord and  Savior
will forever their praises sing!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 5:13

“And every creature
which is in heaven,
and on the earth,
and under the earth,
and such as are in the sea,
and all that are in them,
heard I saying, Blessing,
and honour, and glory,
and power, be unto him
that sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb
for ever and ever.”

Eternal Love ~

eternal-love-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every day God shows,
to us His undying love
every day He showers
His mercies from above.

Every day God says,
child I love you
every day His grace
makes everything new.

Every day God gives,
us His loving solace
every day His peace
is perfect and flawless.

Every day God tends,
to us with loving care
every day He offers us
our burdens to bear.

Every day God sends,
blessings from above
every day He showers us
with His eternal love!

~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

that we are not consumed,

To Keep Pressing On ~

to-keep-pressing-on-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To keep pressing on,
to Jesus we need to press in
to keep on, keeping on
we need to run away from sin.

To reach the high calling,
on God we must keep our eyes
to reach up to heaven
we need to focus on the prize.

To get to the goal,
to our Savior we need to cling
to get to the finish line
we must grow our eagle wings.

To obtain the reward,
on the Holy Spirit we need to rely
to obtain the treasure
our worldly desires we must deny.

To keep pressing on,
to Jesus we must give Him our all
to keep on, keeping on
on God’s power we need to call!

~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-15

” Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended: but this
one thing I do, forgetting those
things which are behind,
and reaching forth unto
those things which are before,

I press toward the mark for
the prize of the high calling
of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us therefore, as many
as be perfect, be thus minded:
and if in any thing ye be
otherwise minded, God shall
reveal even this unto you.”

Committing To The Narrow Way ~

commiting-to-the-narrow-way-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Having a hard time,
staying on the narrow way
too many obstacles
to get over each day?

Too many trials,
testings and tribulations
keeping you from striving
to your eternal destination?

Feeling you’ll never get,
through the narrow gate
too many challenges keeping
you from going straight?

Too many worries,
troubles and cares
too many burdens
for you to have to bear?

Well don’t get discourage,
to the narrow way commit
and be happy that you  . . .
were even able to find it!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:14

“Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

Heaven Is Surreal ~

heaven-is-surreal-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Heaven is going to be,
awesome and surreal
for it will be a place
peacefully ideal.

It will be in Heaven,
from burdens we’ll be free
it’ll be our true happy place
full of laughter and glee.

Heaven will be a place,
where all will be healed
it is where God’s glory
will be fully revealed.

It will be in Heaven,
from our labors we’ll rest
it’ll be a place of joy
for those once oppressed.

Heaven is going to be,
filled with happiness
life will be never-ending
in the place of gladness!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 2:9

“But as it is written,

that love him.”

An Apple In God’s Eye ~

an-apple-in-his-eye-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

An apple in God’s eye,
to Him I am a treasure
He loves me with a love
that I cannot measure.

Precious in His sight,
more valuable than gold
on my soul He keeps
an everlasting hold.

Wonderful things for me,
my Father has in store
when Jesus I finally meet
upon heaven’s shore.

Peace everlasting,
bliss like none I’ve known
one day all His glory
on me will be shone.

An apple in God’s eye,
precious in His sight
more valuable than gold
much to my delight!

My One and Only Selfie ~

My One and Only Selfie ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The only selfie,
I am going to take
is when I go through
the straight gate.

I can’t wait to see,
how I will look
when I see my name
written in the book.

I know I’ll be beaming,
from the light of the Son
as the picture will show
the good race I’ve won.

It will be a photo,
of glory and rewards
one that I’m looking
ever anxiously towards.

The only selfie,
I will ever take . . .
is standing with Jesus
at the straight gate!

~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

Above the Clouds ~

Above the Clouds ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Above the clouds,
I wish to be . . .
beyond the storms
awaiting me.

Higher places,
I wish to go . . .
before the gales
start to blow.

Beyond the rain,
I wish to fly . . .
past the gloom
rolling by.

Up and over,
I wish to soar . . .
high above
life’s daily roar.

Above the clouds,
Lord, I wish to be . . .
to a place of rest
right next to Thee!

Oh that I had wings

The Promise ~

Heaven-is-our-home ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann

Further than the stars,
that my eyes can see
is the promise of rest
God has awaiting me.

Higher than the moon,
hanging in the sky
is the promise of peace
coming from up high.

Beyond the sun’s ray,
beaming from above
is the promise of bliss
bathed in eternal love.

Wider than the ocean,
deeper than the blue sea
is the promise of calm
waiting just for me.

Beyond what I envision,
further than all I can see
I know heaven is waiting
one day to welcome me!
