Beauty For Ashes ~

Beauty for Ashes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Is your heart heavy,
are you in pain
do your troubles . . .
fall like acid rain?

Are you in mourning,
is your heart broken
do you feel as if . . .
time has been frozen?

Are you in despair,
haven’t a notion
are you just going . . .
through the motions?

Do you feel hopeless,
times hitting you hard
has anguish left you . . .
despondent and scarred.

Well don’t you give up,
don’t fall into a heap
joy will come after
all the tears you weep.

God’s making something,
beautiful out of you . . .
just give Him your cares
and all things He’ll make new!

Isaiah 61:3
King James Version

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
to give unto them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

Useless ~

Hope Restored by Michael McFatridge free photo #5529

Absolute meaningless,
everything about this life
useless and ruthless
the means to all strife.

Absolute rubbish,
the treasures on earth
useless and fruitless
they hold no true worth.

Absolute nonsense,
are the worlds delights
useless and hopeless
with no future in sight.

Absolute chaos,
under the sun
useless and senseless
without the Son . . .

Ecclesiastes 1:2
King James Version

“Vanity of vanities,
saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities; all is vanity.”

Without Jesus ~

Without Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus died for you,
and He died for me
He died for the whole world
so our need for Him, we’d see.

He died for the miserable,
the hardened, the hopeless
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are helpless.

He died for the cruel,
the wicked, the guilty
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are filthy.

He died for the sorrowful,
the poor, the meek
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are weak.

He died for the troubled,
the worried, the weary
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are needy.

Jesus died for the lost,
and He died for the unsaved
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are depraved!

Romans 5:8
King James Version

“But God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.
