Leaving My Footprint ~

Lord, may the footprint,
on this world I leave
be the steps of one
who in You believed.

May it be Your imprint,
long after I am gone
that keeps others
to You being drawn.

Lord, may the footprint,
be a lasting imprint
of one who lived a life
full of the Holy Spirit.

May Your impression,
be left in all I say
let the words I write
continue hearts to sway.

May the footprint I leave,
be not a carbon one . . .
let it be the faithful steps
of one who followed Your Son!

Out of Control ~

In a world,
spinning out of control
I am so glad I gave
Jesus, my heart and soul.

In a world,
filled with so much confusion
I am so very happy
I’ve the Holy Spirit’s infusion.

In a world,
full of panic and chaos
I’m so blessed to have
God, as my peaceful oasis.

In a world,
that is lustful and greedy
I’m so thankful I can bank on
God’s favor, grace and mercy.

In a world,
that will meet a fiery end
I’m so grateful . . .
Jesus, is my eternal Friend!

Revelation 20:7-9

“And when the thousand years are expired,
Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

And shall go out to deceive the nations
which are in the four quarters of the earth,
Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle:
the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth,
and compassed the camp of the saints about,
and the beloved city:
and fire came down from God
out of heaven, and devoured them.”

Fill Me Up Lord ~

Fill me up Lord,
till I overflow
with Your love
keep my heart aglow.

Fill me up Lord,
till I burst inside
with Your power
help me to abide.

Fill me up Lord,
till I bust all out
with Your peace
rid me of my doubt.

Fill me up Lord,
till I gush and spew
with Your grace
restore and renew.

Fill me up Lord,
till I over-spill . . .
with Your love
let me have my fill!

A Living Sacrifice ~

If you want to really find,
God’s good and perfect will
then you must give to Him
your ego, pride and self-will.

You will need to submit,
your heart, mind and soul
over to the Holy Spirit
so He can take control.

Then He will teach you,
all about holy living
and your whole life to God
soon you will start giving.

If you really long to be,
to God truly acceptable
if you no longer want to be
to the world’s ways susceptible.

Then you must present,
the new life He’s given to you
as a holy living sacrifice . . .
in all that you say and do!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

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.”

Dispel Your Despair ~

If your faith is steadfast,
rooted and grounded
when trials come your way
in joy you’ll be surrounded.

For in the very midst,
of your worldly care
counting it all for joy
will dispel your despair.

When in Jesus,
you are truly content
you’ll experience joy
that is heaven sent.

For, whether in sickness,
or in perfect health
joy will bring to you
everlasting wealth.

Joy is not an option,
it’s something God gives
to those where His Spirit
securely abides and lives!

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in
believing, that ye may abound
in hope, through the power

A Gospel-Driven Life ~

A Gospel-driven life,
is a life worth living
its full of power
for it knows its calling.

It’s a life full of hope,
it is Christ-driven
it knows by His grace
it has been forgiven.

A Gospel-driven life,
is one full of light
it uses God’s Word
so darkness it can fight.

It’s a life committed,
to the Truth and Way
it is Spirit-driven
it knows not to stray.

A Gospel-driven life,
sets its mind on above
it finds perfect peace
resting in God’s love.

I am Blessed ~

I am blessed,
with mercy and grace
blessed to have the strength
to keep in the faithful race.

I am blessed,
with everything good and just
blessed to have a God
in whom I can truly trust.

I am blessed,
with a lively, eternal hope
blessed to have a Savior
to help me each day to cope.

I am blessed,
with every spiritual blessing

urging me to keep on pressing.

I am blessed,
with all I could ever need

Never Alone ~

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

His very presence,
gives me such peace
for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

He brings me comfort,
just knowing He’s here
He fills my heart and soul
with joy and good cheer.

I once thought,
I’d be left on my own
but since I found Jesus
I am never alone!

Fear Fighting Faith ~

Fear fighting faith,
wins many a battle
when it’s enacted
anxiety it’ll tackle.

Fear fighting faith,
tells satan to flee
it says greater is He
living inside of me.

Fear fighting faith,
uses Bible verses
before worry
even surfaces.

Fear fighting faith,
claims victory
as soon as it feels
a little jittery.

Fear fighting faith,
is easy for you to do
now that the Holy Spirit
lives inside of you!

we apply God’s grace
to keep us steadfast
in the daily race.

May each day,
God’s mercy we find
to fill our hearts
with peace of mind.

May each day,
our faith keep us
on the course
of hope and trust.

May each day,
we seek God first
to feed our hunger
to quench our thirst.

May each day,
we keep our eyes
looking forward to
the winner’s prize!

United ~

When God teaches you,
the truth He will show
and the things of His will
you will want to know.

When God in His Word,
begins to guide you
you’ll want godly conduct
in the things that you do.

When God teaches you,
how to walk on His way
you will choose carefully
the things that you say.

When God gives directions,
to the Cross it will lead
there you’ll find Jesus
and the grace to be freed.

When God teaches you,
of His power and might  . . .
He’ll fill you with holy fear
and your hearts will unite!

Teach me thy way, O Lord;
I will walk in thy truth:

Man’s Plans ~

You may have plans,
you want to pursue
you may have ideas
brand spanking new.

But God’s purposes,
are the ones to prevail
and His intentions
you won’t be able to derail.

You may have a vision,
you want to maintain
you may have dreams
you want to attain.

But God’s designs,
cannot be thwarted
His will for your life
cannot be aborted.

You may have plans,
but only God will decide
the steps you will take
when He is your guide!

God Knows Our Potential ~

God knows our potential,
before we even do
to our capabilities
He has a pristine view.

God sees our weakness,
He knows our every fear
He understands we need
the way to be made clear.

God sees our strengths,
He knows our abilities
He has eternal insight
into all our possibilities.

God sees our doubt,
He knows we’re human
He knows we need His might
to get us up and movin’.

God knows our potential,
He sees what we’re made of
He knows all we need is . . .
His guidance from above!

~~~~~~~~~~

Judges 6:12-14

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him,
and said unto him, The Lord is with thee,
thou mighty man of valour.

And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord,
if the Lord be with us, why then is all
this befallen us? and where be all his
miracles which our fathers told us of,
saying, Did not the Lord bring us up
from Egypt? but now the Lord hath
forsaken us, and delivered us into
the hands of the Midianites.

And the Lord looked upon him, and said,
Go in this thy might, and thou shalt
save Israel from the hand of the
Midianites: have not I sent thee?”

We All Need A Friend ~

we-all-need-a-friend-chrisitian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We all need a friend,
to encourage us
we all need someone
who in God truly trusts.

We all need a partner,
with whom we can pray
someone who will help us
stay on the narrow way.

We all need a mentor,
in whom we can share
someone who understands
the weight of our care.

We all need a confidant,
to help our faith grow
someone who believes
God’s will we can know.

We all need a friend,
a faithful supporter
we all need God’s Spirit
to be our shock absorber!

a refuge and a fortress
whenever we are shaken.

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.”

To Be An Overcomer ~

to-be-an-overcomer-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To be an overcomer,
we must see sin is the problem
our faith and trust in Jesus
must remain firm and solemn.

To be an overcomer,
we must confront the obstructions
that leads to the wide road
of everlasting destruction.

To be an overcomer,
we must tackle the world head on
we constantly must be
to the Holy Spirit drawn.

To be an overcomer,
we must be willing to defeat
Satan and his armies
so not to fall for his deceit.

To be an overcomer,
we can’t stand in the shadows
we must shed God’s light
so the darkness we can expose!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:4

“For whatsoever is born of God
overcometh the world: and this
is the victory that overcometh
the world, even our faith.

Who is he that overcometh the
world, but he that believeth
that Jesus is the Son of God?”

The Power of Sin ~

the-power-of-sin-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The power of sin,
is seductive
it is always beguiling
and permissive.

The power of sin,
is heady
it is always lethal
and deadly.

The power of sin,
is addictive
is it always evil
and destructive.

The power of sin,
is toxic
it is always noxious
and caustic.

The power of sin,
you cannot control
unless you let God’s Spirit
into your heart and soul!

~~~~~~~

Romans 8:4-5

That the righteousness
of the law might be
fulfilled in us,
who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.

For they that are after
the flesh do mind the things
of the flesh; but they
that are after the Spirit
the things of the Spirit.”

Holy Spirit Walking ~

Today I’m walking,
with The Holy Spirit

we are both going to hit.

I’ll be trusting Him,
for the right directions
I’ll follow His lead
without any objections.

We’ll travel together,
without Him I won’t go
for the righteous way
I know He knows.

I’ll be looking for Him,
to steer my desires
into all that God’s will
asks and requires.

Today I’m walking,

Bible Crunches ~

bible-crunches-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Today I’m exercising,
going to let it rip
going to strengthen
tighten up faith’s grip.

I’ll go all the way
get Scripture sculpted
so my belief in God
can never get corrupted.

I’ll do Bible crunches,
tone up my Gospel flab
so I can be ready
to fight off Satan’s jabs.

I’ll do a full workout,
I’m going to optimize
so my trust in God
can’t be compromised.

Today I’m exercising.
going to spiritually stick it
for, I’ll be working out . . .
with the Holy Spirit!

In My Golden Years ~

in-my-golden-years-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

In my golden years,
my faith is mightier
my hope grows steadier
my trust gets sturdier.

The body gets weaker,
the mind is foggier
the memory grows poorer
the recollection’s fewer.

My beliefs root deeper,
my strength gets stronger
my doubts move further
my fears get lesser.

The eyes get dimmer,
the knees are creakier
the spine gets stiffer
the muscles softer.

God gets bigger,
the world gets smaller
the Lord grows nearer
my worries calmer.

In my golden years,
I am more aware . . .
God’s still concerned
about my welfare!

for a spiritual life
in God never doubts.

A Spiritual life,

nothing is impossible.

is a life made new
for Jesus’ Spirit
now dwells in you!

which after God is created in
righteousness and true holiness.”

When CHRISTmas Day is Over ~

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
and the tree is finally down
as the lights are returned
to where they were found.

As we settle back into,
our daily routines
the hope of CHRISTmas
isn’t over by any means.

For, the reality of the day,
you cannot pack away
nor return or store it
back into some attic bay.

CHRISTmas lives on,
in our hearts everyday
for it’s the only Gift . . .
we can give each day.

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
be sure to keep sharing . . .
the Truth, Life and Way
by being Light bearing!
