Grow In Grace ~

If we’re to grow in grace,
we need to be willing
to receive in our lives
the Holy Spirit’s filling.

For the fruit that He has,
will only start to grow
the more about His power
we understand and know.

If we’re to be productive,
we need more than milk
for it is the meat of the Word
that will go down like silk.

For, it will ease our fears
sooth all of our doubt
for faith without grace
has no where to sprout.

Growing in grace,
we must make a priority
so that our knowledge . . .
in Jesus has clarity!


2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now
and for ever. Amen.

Hebrews 5:12

For when for the time ye ought
to be teachers, ye have need that
one teach you again which be the
first principles of the oracles of God;
and are become such as have need
of milk, and not of strong meat.

Set Apart For Jesus ~

Set apart because,
He first loved us . . .
are those who have
in God faith and trust.

A life separated,
from worldly ways
devoted to Jesus
for all our days.

His Spirit within us,
now with Him we abide
no longer is there
an emptiness inside.

A life to God submitted,
holy and consecrated
now understand why
they were even created.

Set apart all because,
we were first loved . . .
now we are the children
of the One who’s Beloved!


1 John 4:19

We love him,
because he
first loved us.

Matthew 3:17

And lo a voice from heaven,
saying, This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased.

Jesus Promised ~

Jesus promised,
a helper . . .
who would be
an indweller.

So His own Spirit,
He put into us
so He could assist
to build our trust.

Jesus promised,
a comforter
to be for us
a faith affirmer.

So His own Spirit,
He gave to each
so hearts burdened
He could reach.

Jesus promised,
His Spirit’s indwelling
so He could be . . .
a force compelling!


John 14:16-17

And I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide
with you for ever;

Even the Spirit of truth;
whom the world cannot receive,
because it seeth him not,
neither knoweth him:
but ye know him;
for he dwelleth with you,
and shall be in you.

The Wind of The Spirit ~

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is relentlessly active . . .
where it chooses to blow
no one can keep track of.

It can’t be viewed by the eye,
only detected by the ear
but you can feel its power
whenever it comes near.

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is like a breeze whispering
or it can be like a gust
as it swiftly comes rushing.

It’s an ongoing indwelling,
a constant infilling
of God’s holy power
a continuous refilling.

The mighty wind of God,
isn’t seen but it’s heard . . .
and those born of the Spirit
know when it’s being stirred!


John 3:8

The wind bloweth where it listeth,
and thou hearest the sound thereof,
but canst not tell whence it cometh,
and whither it goeth: so is every one
that is born of the Spirit.

Guarding Our Hearts ~

Guarding Our Hearts ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s so important,
to guard our hearts
for God’s treasures
into them, He imparts.

For, our hearts are now,
the wellspring to life
without God’s blessings
we’d have only strife.

We need to be diligent,
to keep our hearts pure
we must remain hopeful
in our faith secure.

For,  in our hearts,
the Holy Spirit dwells
we must protect them
from the fires of hell.

We need to keep them,
with God always right
so He can fill them
with the Truth and Light.

It’s so important,
to keep our hearts guarded
lest we become to God . . .
once again hard-hearted!


Proverbs 4:23

“Keep thy heart with all diligence;
for out of it are the issues of life.”

Drawing Closer to God ~


To draw closer to God,
we must be willing
to open our hearts
to spiritual healing.

Healing of the pain,
others inflected on us
healing of the hurt
so we can learn to trust.

To draw closer to God,
we must be open to
letting His Spirit
make all things new.

Newness of thought,
transformation of mind
letting go of the old
so peace we can find.

To draw closer to God,
we must be willing . . .
to make room in our hearts
for His Spirit’s indwelling!


2 Corinthians 6:16

“And what agreement hath the
temple of God with idols?
for ye are the temple of
the living God;
as God hath said,

I will dwell in them,
and walk in them;
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.”
