The Gospel of Grace ~

The Gospel of Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I believe in the Gospel of grace,
by faith and by faith alone . . .
I believe only through Jesus’ blood
the sins of mankind are atoned.

I believe grace cleanses,
the effects of evil and sin
I believe Jesus our very souls
died so them He could win.

I believe grace pardons,
the guilty and shamed face
I believe Jesus upon Himself
took the brunt of our disgrace.

I believe graces heals,
the hurt, the pain, the ache
I believe Jesus our hearts
can soften, reform and remake.

I believe grace gives rest,
to the depressed and friendless
I believe Jesus came to save
all who are lonely and hopeless.

I believe in the Gospel of grace,
by faith and nothing more . . .
I believe God’s gift of grace
redeems, heals and restores!

Ephesians 2:8

“For by grace are ye saved
through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:”

When In The Wilderness ~

when-in-the-wilderness-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

It gets lonely,
in the wilderness
it feels lifeless
cold and treacherous.

But, when God takes us,
into the wilderness
He wants us with Him
to get down to business.

It’s easy to get lost,
in the wilderness
it can be discouraging
in the land of bitterness.

But, when we trust God,
in the wilderness
He’ll walk us through
our insecureness.

It can be very dangerous,
in the wilderness
it can be desolate
in the land of hopelessness.

But, when God has us,
in the wilderness . . .
it’s because He wants
to heal our stubbornness!

Isaiah 43:19

“Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it? I will
even make a way in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.”

Salvation’s Valley ~

Salvations Tears ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s pain in the valley,
regret and despair
there’s grief and sorrow
plenty of spiritual warfare.

There’s a deep darkness,
a consuming hopelessness
an overwhelming feeling
of gloom and helplessness.

There’s hope anew,
in the valley of salvation
there’s an inner discovery
a spiritual revelation.

There’s a deep refection,
a recall, a remembrance
there’s prayer and pleadings
tearful cries of repentance.

There’s pain in the valley,
but, then comes the peace
when with God  . . .
our struggle’s finally cease!

2 Corinthians 7:10

“For godly sorrow worketh repentance
to salvation not to be repented of:
but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”

Disappointments ~

Discouragement ~ CRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Disappointments come,
into every one’s life . . .
some we can push aside
others cause inside strife.

They have many shapes,
but, with the same face
for, hopelessness knows
it’s all about the chase.

They can poke around,
or hit straight in the gut
for, depression only wants
you wallowing in its rut.

They come in many forms,
but, with the same attitude
making singing the blues
almost impossible to elude.

Into every one’s life,
comes disappointment . . .
but, I have found God’s Word
to be failure’s curing ointment!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 43.5

O my soul?
and why art thou disquieted
within me?
hope in God:
for I shall yet praise him,
who is the health of my
countenance, and my God.”
