A Look Into the Manger ~

Some people look,
but they don’t see
the gift God sent
to set them free.

They see a manger,
but not the Savior
they see a Babe
but not God’s favor.

They see a Boy,
but not the King of Kings
they see a Child
but not the hope He brings.

They see the Wise Men,
but not the Prince of Peace
they see the Shepherds
but not God’s love released.

Some people look,
into the manger
but they only see . . .
Jesus as a stranger!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:12

“And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.”

This Is The Life ~

This is the life,
this is what I call livin’
this is what it is like . . .
when your sins are forgiven.

This is first-rate,
this is what I always needed
this is what it is like . . .
when your life to God is heeded.

This is the real-deal,
this is how it should always be
this is what it is like . . .
to have Jesus abiding in me.

This is top-notch,
this is all I could ask for
this is what it is like . . .
believing in life forever more.

This is life,
at its absolute best
this is what it is like . . .
having God’s peace and rest!

shall find it.”

The Gospel of Life ~

Thank you Lord,
for the Gospel of Life
for giving hope
instead of strife.

For the light,
of Your love
for Your Spirit
from above.

Thank you Lord,
for true liberty
for over sin
having victory.

For forgiveness,
and Your grace
for the chance
to seek Your face.

Thank you Lord,
for life eternal
for saving me from . . .
hell’s infernal!

K.I.S.S. ~

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t get bogged down
in all the rhetoric
that keeps going around.

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t listen to the heresy
just look into your Bible
and do what it has to say.

Keep It Simple Saints,
childlike faith is all you need
trust in your First Love
and let the Holy Spirit lead.

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t get caught in the lies
discern for yourself the truth
and then only those apply.

Keep It Simple Saints,
some make salvation hard
and their misguided opinions
you will need to disregard.

Keep It Simple Saints,
it’s so easy to get tied down
by all the Scripture arguments
that for centuries . . .
have been going around!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 2:1-2

“But there were false prophets
also among the people,
even as there shall be
false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring
in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord
that bought them,
and bring upon themselves
swift destruction.

And many shall follow
their pernicious ways;
  by reason of whom the
way of truth shall be
evil spoken of.”

Don’t Be a Sellout ~

You can tell God you’re sorry,
ask Him for forgiveness . . .
but, without true repentance
sin, still will be your weakness.

You can try to conquer sin,
but, it is impossible to do
unless you have the Holy Spirit
and His power helping you.

You can beg and you can plea,
for your sins to be forgiven
but, without turning from them
to sin, you’ll still be driven.

You can try to stay away,
from all evil and wickedness
but, without the Light in your life
you’ll still be drawn to the darkness.

You can cry, you can weep,
over your besetting sin
but, without true remorse
over them you’ll never win.

You can try to keep sin at bay,
you can try to cut it out . . .
but, without true repentance
to sin you will still sellout!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 5:32

“I came not to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance.”

If We Train Our Children~

If we train our children,
God, to always fear
then they will sense
His Spirit close and near.

If we raise our children,
to have Godly restraint
then with this world
they’ll not want to acquaint.

If we educate our children,
God, to always love
then they will lay
their treasures above.

If we teach our children,
to follow God’s plans
then they will know
their times are in His hands.

If we instruct our children,
to follow God’s ways
then His laws they’ll obey
for the rest of their days.

If we train our children,
right from the start
then from His ways . . .
they will not depart!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 22.6

Train up a child
in the way he should go:
and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.


The Path of Truth ~

Lord, today I need
to know what is Your will
and until You show me . . .
I’ll just wait and be still.

I need Your guidance,
for the road ahead
I need the assurance
I will be Spirit lead.

Lord, today I need,
to heed what You say
so on the path of truth
I will be able to stay.

I need to learn to wait,
for the right directions
I need You to teach me
how to pay attention.

Lord, today I need to know,
what You’d have me to do
for I don’t want to walk . . .
down this road without You!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:5

“Lead me in thy truth,
and teach me: for thou art
the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day”

Prayer Requires ~

Our prayers require,
our perseverance
and a thankful heart
to fuel our endurance.

For our supplications,
to a God who knows all
need from grateful lips
to unceasingly fall.

When we’ve no words,
to utter or to speak
when our groanings turn
ineffective and weak.

The Holy Spirit,
for us will intercede
and an indebted heart
we are going to need.

Our prayers require,
our praise and thanksgiving
to a God that’s always been
trusting and forgiving!

~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth
our infirmities:
for we know not what we should pray
for as we ought: but the Spirit itself
maketh intercession for us with
groanings which cannot be uttered.

I am Not Afraid ~

I am not afraid,
of the evil things I see
even my own death
will not put a scare in me.

For, You my Lord,
are always near by
and will always be
until the day I die.

I am not dismayed,
by the valley ahead
for I believe through it
I will be Spirit lead.

For, when the time comes,
for me to go on home
it’ll be the happiest day
I have ever known.

I am not afraid,
I have nothing to fear
for Jesus my heart
will comfort and cheer!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me.”

So Many Needs ~

So many needs,
so many cares
causing His sheep
so much despair.

When will they seek,
when will they come
to the One who will
bear every one?

So many problems,
so many concerns
causing His sheep
thoughts to churn.

When will they know,
when will they find
Jesus is waiting
to comfort their mind?

So many doubts,
so many questions
causing His sheep
bouts of depression.

When will they see,
when will they hear
Jesus is wanting
to calm their fear?

So many defeated,
so many gone astray
so many we can lead . . .
back to Jesus today!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“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.”

Stir Our Hearts Lord ~

Stir our hearts Lord,
awaken our desire
to learn to do
all that You require.

Stir up our prayer life,
our thoughts stimulate
keep us on our knees
lest we become stagnate.

Stir our minds Lord,
excite us to press on
keep us watchful
till the race is won.

Stir up our faith life,
arouse our holy dullness
so we may be filled with
the Holy Spirit’s fullness.

Stir our souls Lord,
evoke a new awakening
let us have a resurgence
of Your Spirit’s enlightening!

~~~~~~

Psalm 43:3-4

“O send out thy light and thy truth:
let them lead me; let them bring me
unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.

Isaiah 57:15

“For thus saith the high and lofty One
that inhabiteth eternity,
whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high
and holy place, with him also that is
of a contrite and humble spirit,
to revive the spirit of the humble,
and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

Lift Me Higher Lord ~

When my troubles,
are overwhelming
before my cares
become unrelenting.

I look to Jesus,
to lift me higher
so His peace
I might acquire.

When my worries,
are too heavy
before my tears
become steady.

I go to Jesus,
my High Rock
and in the storm
with Him I walk.

When my fears,
begin to transpire
I look to Jesus
to lift me higher!

~~~~~~~~

“From the end of the earth
will I cry unto thee,
When my heart
is overwhelmed:
lead me to the Rock
that is higher than I.”

Faith Isn’t A Feeling ~

Some days I just plain feel,
my faith it isn’t with it
sometimes I don’t feel
led by the Holy Spirit.

But, then God reminds me,
faith isn’t about how I feel
it’s about trusting Him . . .
so His truths He can reveal.

Some days I feel anxious,
caught up in my fear
some days it’s so hard
to feel God is ever near.

But, then God reminds me,
faith isn’t about how I feel
faith is believing Jesus . . .
my anxieties He will heal.

Some days my heart,
feels so burdened down
sometimes I don’t feel
or sense any hope around.

But, then God reminds me,
faith is not about a feeling
faith is about my future
and all He will be revealing!

of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.”

The Dew of God’s Spirit ~

God sends His Spirit,
like the dew from above
to cover us each day
with His mercy and love.

Glistening beads of hope,
to soften the hard crust
so we may put in Him
every ounce of our trust.

He refreshes us daily,
with tiny drops of dew
so our faith may grow
in the things that are true.

Dew drops from heaven,
seeping into our hearts
so more of His grace
each day He can impart.

Restoring dew drops,
soak up our daily strife
filling us with His peace
and the joy of new life.

God sends His Spirit,
like sweet drops of dew
so each day our hearts
He can repair and  renew!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 133:3

“As the dew of Hermon,
and as the dew that descended
upon the mountains of Zion:
for there the Lord commanded
the blessing, even life for evermore.”

The Undiluted Word of God ~

The Undiluted Word of God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Give me the pure Word of God,
not the New Age diminished versions
give me the real Good News
not the ones filled with man’s perversions.

Give me the sincere Word of God,
so I can taste all of His goodness
give me the undiluted translation
not the ones supporting man’s lewdness.

Give me the solid Word of God,
so I can sink my teeth into it
give me the true meat of the Gospel
not the ones coming from man’s own spirit.

Give me the sincere Word of God,
so I may savor His mercy and grace
give me the true unaltered Scriptures
not the ones that makes me feel no disgrace.

Give me the pure Word of God,
so my soul may be nourished
give me the Holy Spirit inspired version
not the ones that man has refurbished!

My Soul Shall Live On ~

My Soul Shall Live On ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My body may perish,
but, my soul shall live on
all because I believe Jesus
is God’s only begotten Son.

Eternal life I was promised,
when my sins I confessed
and from that day forward
with His Spirit I’ve been blessed.

My body is growing weak,
but my spirit’s getting stronger
for it has truly repented
and is in this world no longer.

I long for the day when,
I will spend all of eternity
with my Lord and Savior
in blissful serenity.

My body may perish,
but, my soul it shall live on
all because of God’s mercy
and the grace of His Son!

Bearing Good Fruits ~

Faith that is voiced,
faith that is shared
is a faith that knows
good fruit it’s to bear.

Faith that is productive,
faith that is fruitful
is a faith God makes
for His kingdom useful.

Faith that is spoken,
faith that is conveyed
is a faith that God needs
so hearts can be swayed.

Faith that is ministering,
faith that is life-saving
is a faith in Jesus
worthy of our embracing.

Faith that is hidden,
faith that we don’t share
is a faith in God . . . .
leading others no where!

James 2:17

“Even so faith,
if it hath not works,
is dead, being alone.”

Matthew 7:16-20

“Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles?

Even so every good tree
bringeth forth good fruit;
but a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit.

A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit,
neither can a corrupt tree
bring forth good fruit.

Every tree that bringeth
not forth good fruit
is hewn down, and cast
into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits
ye shall know them.”

Without The First Rain ~

Without the first rain,
there can’t be a last harvest
without the Son’s Light
all would be in darkness.

Without the spring showers,
the seed of truth can’t grow
without the fresh crops
Jesus no one would know.

Without the latter rain,
there be nothing to reap
without God’s eternal mercy
over sin, no one would weep.

Without the outpouring,
of the Holy Spirit
without the Word of God
no one for heaven would be fit.

Without the first rain,
the latter rain can’t come
so that Jesus can return
and set up His Kingdom!

~~~~~~~

James 5:7

“Be patient therefore,
brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the husbandman waiteth
for the precious fruit of the earth,
and hath long patience for it,
until he receive the
early and latter rain.”

Not Mine, But God’s ~

God’s strength, not mine,
my sin, His forgiveness
God’s power, not mine
my battles, His fight.

God’s desires, not mine,
my needs, His supply
God’s demands, not mine
my weakness, His might.

God’s faithfulness, not mine,
my defiance, His mercy
God’s compassion, not mine
my rebellion, His favor.

God’s plans, not mine,
my bad, His good
God’s time, not mine
my life, His design.

God’s kindness, not mine
my shame, His grace
God’s Son, my salvation
my guilt, His redemption.

God’s strength, not mine,
my hope, His promise
God’s peace, not mine
my trust, His alone!

You Can Do It ~

You can move that mountain,
if you believe Jesus can . . .
with His help you can turn it
into a pile of rock and sand.

You can dislodge that mountain,
you can displace it
if you have the strength
of the Holy Spirit.

You can take that mountain,
you can beat the odds
you can conquer it
if you trust in God.

You can banish that mountain,
you can make it depart
you can make it go away
if you believe with all your heart.

You can move that mountain,
God’s power you will receive
if in Jesus . . .
you have the faith to believe!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“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.”

To God Be The Glory ~

To God Be the Glory,

for His delight.

Sharing my needs,

To God be the glory,
to Him be the praise
for knowing His Word
to following His ways.

Praying to God,
learning to be still
so we can understand
His most perfect will.

To God be the glory,
this is why I do write . . .
using the grace given me
to shine His saving light!

Too Numerous To Count ~

When I look at the stars,
as I watch their twinkling
I can see God’s blessings
in them glistening.

I see the star of my faith,
shinning so ever bright
for, God has blessed me
with His saving Light.

I see the star of my trust,
hanging in the sky above
for, God has blessed me
with His mercy and love.

I see the star of my hope,
it’s the brightest one
for, God has blessed me
with the grace of His Son.

When I look at the stars,
as they twinkle all about
I’m reminded God’s blessings
are just too numerous to count!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 15:5

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
