After God’s Own Heart ~

I want to have a heart,
after God’s own heart
so that into it . . .
His mercy He’ll impart.

I want to be humble,
reverent and respectful
I want to be for my sins
repentant and regretful.

I want to be trusting,
fearless and faithful
I want to be obedient
thankful and grateful.

I want to be considerate,
loving and compassionate
I want to be devoted
fervent and passionate.

I want a heart like David’s,
one willing to go and do
anything that God asks . . .
I want to be loyal and true!

~~~~~~~

Acts 13:22

“And when he had removed him,
he raised up unto them David
to be their king; to whom also
he gave their testimony, and said,
I have found David the son of Jesse,
a man after mine own heart,
which shall fulfil all my will.”

Restarts and Retakes ~

God is a God,
of new beginnings
for He is a God
who is forgiving.

When we sin,
repent and confess
He gives us more grace
to onward press.

God is a God,
of fresh, clean starts
for He is a God
who knows our hearts.

When we fall,
or should we stumble
He helps us to be
more meek and humble.

God is a God,
of restarts and retakes
for God pardons . . .
all of our mistakes!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:6

“But he giveth more grace.
Wherefore he saith,
God resisteth the proud,
but giveth grace unto the humble.”

Humble Submission ~

Humble Submision ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, humbly I come,
my life I submit
for You to do . . .
whatever with it.

Help me to know,
Your perfect will
keep me on the road
to Calvary’s hill.

Help me to resist,
sinful temptation
let me not fall under
Satan’s sedation.

Help me to move,
closer to You
keep my soul away
from a world’s view.

Help me to have,
a heart that grieves
whenever to Yours
I refuse to cleave.

Lord, humbly I come,
I lift my life to You
for You to do with it . . .
what You must do!

James 4:10

“Humble yourselves in the sight
of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”

Abundant Grace ~

Abundant Graces ~ CHRISTian poetry by debora ann ~ Photo  Doorpost Verses

My faith has taken me,
to joyous places up high
as well as low valley’s
barren, arid and dry.

It’s taken me through,
times good and bad
my faith’s kept me joyful
even when I am sad.

My faith has been strong.
though I’ve been weak
it has made me humble
effectual and meek.

It’s seen me through,
all kinds of turbulence
my faith’s carried me
over each recurrence.

My faith has taken me,
to many different places
so that I would find . . .
abundant are His graces!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:10

“But by the grace of God I am what I am:
and his grace which was bestowed upon me
was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly
than they all: yet not I,
but the grace of God which was with me.”

Revival Today ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ If My People - IBible Verses

If only I could change,
the path man is on . . .
to life-giving waters
everyone would be drawn.

I’d show them the way,
to true and lasting peace
comes if man’s pride . . .
finally were to cease.

I’d tell them humbleness,
is not a sign of weakness
but a gesture expressing
without God, we’re  helpless.

I’d ask each and everyone,
to put all malice aside
so in their very hearts . . .
His Spirit could abide.

I’d lead them to Jesus,
who is waiting to heal . . .
each deed of bitterness
every act of ill-will.

But, I cannot do so,
all I can do is pray  . . .
for revival in our land
today and every day!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn
from their wicked ways;

then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

These Feet of Clay ~

~CHRISTian poetry bydeborahann ~ walkchrist-IBible VErses

I walk, I stumble,
I fall down . . .
yet, these feet of clay
will always be . . .
heaven bound.

I stub my toe,
I scrap my knee . . .
yet, these feet of clay
know from Satan . . .
they must flee.

I twist my ankle,
I can’t  get up . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still tastes the victory
of a winner’s cup.

I run, I race,
I trip and tumble . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still remain . . .
meek and humble.

I lose, I win,
I worry, I rest . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still must go . . .
through the test.

I walk, I stumble
I fall on my face . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still won’t quit . . .
the faithful race!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:16

“Holding forth the word of life;
that I may rejoice in the day of Christ,
that I have not run in vain,
neither laboured in vain.”

If Only ~

be-humble ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

If we’re to have a bright future,
we must willingly follow God’s plans
if we’re going to walk in faith
we must put our trust in His hands.

If we’re not to be weary,
we must give God our distress
if we’re to find rest for our souls
we must be willing to onward press.

If we’re to have strength and power,
we must first admit we are weak
if we’re to soar like eagles
we must learn to be humble and meek.

If we’re trying to find real peace,
we mustn’t give in to fear or doubt
if we’re wanting to see God’s light
we must shut all the darkness out.

If we’re to have true victory,
we must run the race so we can win
if we’re to receive our reward
we must repent from our every sin!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:14

Worry Free ~

Worry Free ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I want to be all,
God wants me to be
I want to have peace
flowing inside of me.

I want to be humble,
be rid of my pride
I want a still place
for my heart to abide.

I want to be trusting,
confident and sure
I want my faith to be
fear and doubt’s cure.

I want to be thankful,
in all of these things
I want to be grateful
for what life brings.

I want to be content,
have confidence
I want to rejoice
in God’s providence.

I want to be all,
God wants me to be
I want to be anxious
and worry free!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7
King James Version

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication
with thanksgiving

let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Walking Humbly ~

micah-walk-humbly CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I want to walk with God,
through the glens and dells
up and down the hills
through the valley’s swells.

I want to place each step,
in the truest of directions
I want my walk to have
the holiest of intentions.

I want to hold His hand,
as I climb the mountain top
I want Him to tell me . . .
when to go, when to stop.

I want to do God justice,
doing what He requires
I want to make Him proud
of my wants and desires.

I want to walk humbly,
so I don’t trip on my pride
I want God’s grace in my steps
His mercy in my stride!

~~~~~~~~~~

Micah 6:8
King James Version

“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good;
and what doth the LORD require of thee,
but to do justly, and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with thy God?”


Love One Another ~

Love One Another ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

You know how much . . .
My Father loves you
I have shown the world
the same love too.

Now that I’m gone,
to be with my Father
you must continue
to love one another.

When you’re offended,
turn the other cheek
remember My love
is humble and meek.

When you’ve been hurt,
and all you feel is pain
do not think to retaliate
let forgiveness be your aim.

When others disappoint,
give them encouragement
for My love is full of grace
free from punishment.

When those you know,
turn their back on you
remember this one thing
My love remains true.

You know how much . . .
My Father and I love you
now you must go
and show the world it too!

~~~~~~~

John 15:9
King James Version

“As the Father hath loved me,
so have I loved you:
continue ye in my love.”

A Humble Heart ~

Blessed are The Meek used with permission IBible Verses

Jesus, give me a humble heart,
teach me to have a meek attitude
take from me, my selfish pride
fill my soul with eternal gratitude.

Disrobe me of my self-importance,
strip my conceit and arrogance
remove the smugness on my face
rip away any self-imposed relevance.

Cloth me in Your righteousness,
wrap me in Your truth and love
cover me with the Holy Spirit
bind me to Your Father up above.

Jesus, give me a holy humbleness,
dispose of any remaining selfish debris
take from me my self-centerness
let humility bend my prideful knee!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:6
King James Version

“But He gives more grace. Therefore He
says: ” God resists the proud, But
gives grace to the humble.”

Take My Pride, Lord ~

Life A Life Jesus will be Proud of used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, take away the pride,
in the things I say and do
let me take no pleasure
in just my point of view.

Teach me to be humble,
instead of being right
so I can stand worthy
pleasing in Your sight.

Help me to be meek,
less of myself aware
let not my ego cause
other people to despair.

Let me be grateful,
modest in my needs
may I not be haughty
in my acts and deeds.

Lord, take away my pride,
let me make You proud
may it be Your gentle Spirit
that stands out in a crowd!

God Has Placed Me Here ~

You are Where God Wants You used with permission IBible VErses

God has placed me here,
in this land of the unknown
in this sea of uncertainty
so His will may be known.

I know not what He has in store,
I know not where He will lead
but I know I must trust in Him
to His ways I need to heed.

It’s my duty to be humble,
to show Him my gratitude
for He is sovereign
and I must adjust my attitude.

There’s nothing that I can do,
no miracle I can perform
but I know I will be blessed
and my life He will transform.

He doesn’t owe me anything,
yet, He’s gracious with His mercy
it’s through the blood of Jesus
that in His eyes I’m even worthy.

God has placed me here,
in this place of hope and trust
so I will wait for Him . . .
to do what I know He must!

Humble Me ~

Live to Know God used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, humble me in Your mercy,
let fairness be my guide
for I know without Your justice
from my sins I cannot  hide.

Give to me Your understanding,
let Your truth direct my day
for I know without Your guidance
I would surely lose my way.

Show me Your compassion,
help me  to know Your will
for I know without Your goodness
I could never possess the skill.

Test my faith with consideration,
let Your wisdom speak out to me
for I know without Your grace
Your righteousness I couldn’t see.

Teach me about forgiveness,
let Your kindness in me thrive
for I know without Your passion
Your Spirit in me wouldn’t be alive.

Lord, humble me in Your mercy,
let Your love dwell deep within
for I know You died for me
so I wouldn’t perish in my sin.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:8-9
King James Version

Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
The humble He guides in justice,
And the humble He teaches His way.”

Love Is ~

Masters of the Heart by Chris Kennedy free photo # 12572

Love that is . . .
patient and kind
that reaches down
touching mankind.

Love that is chaste,
pure in its thought
that humbles itself
before it’s sought.

Love that holds,
its temper still
is not angered
feels no ill-will.

Love that hopes,
is full of desire
that holds itself true
that doesn’t expire.

Love that trusts,
believes and is sure
that is forever
that which will endure.

Love that never fails,
or ceases to be
that can’t be bought
but which is free.

Love that is honest,
sincere and real
that evil and darkness
can’t conceal.

Love that comes,
from deep in your heart
that which only
the Lord can impart.

This is the love . . .
we ought to show
to each and every
person that we know!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
King James Version

“Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity,
but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things,
hopeth all things, endureth all things.”

By His Stripes ?

lamb-of-god free photo

If Jesus abased and humbled Himself,
then why don’t we hold Him in esteem?
If He was obedient even unto the cross,
then why won’t His salvation we redeem?

If He bore His own grief and sorrow,
then why don’t we think He’ll take ours?
If He took upon Himself our punishment
then why don’t we see His scars?

If He was wounded for our transgressions,
then why do we still pursue after sin?
If He was bruised for our iniquities,
then why does immorality still win?

If His chastisement became our peace,
then why do we still have so much conflict?
If by His stripes, we have been healed,
then why do we on others ~ pain inflict?

If He was oppressed and treated unfairly,
then why do we still treat Him this way?
It must be true what the Bible tells us,
all of His sheep . . . have gone astray!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:5
King James Version

“But he was wounded for our
transgressions, he was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our
peace was upon him; and with his
stripes we are healed.”

Isaiah 53:6
King James Version

“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.”

What Causes Our Feet to Stumble?

What Causes Our Feet To Stumle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo CreationSwap

What causes our feet to stumble,
so quickly in these last days?
Was not Jesus our example,
on how to keep ourselves humble?

Did He not draw a line in the sand,
an expose to all men their sin?
Was He not the One who promised,
salvation would come from His hand?

Did He not still preach the Word,
to all those He came across?
Did He not hold them accountable,
for the truth that they had heard?

Did He not prepare the way,
for the Holy Spirit’s filling?
Did He not tell everyone to fear,
God’s wrath on judgment day?

Did He just give up,
and ask God to save Him from death?
Did He not continue on to drink,
the grace raised in His Father’s  cup?

Did He not face the cross,
with severe pain and suffering?
So then why do we think . . .
we should not undergo any loss?

What causes are feet to stumble,
so quickly in these last days?
Didn’t Jesus set for us an example,
on how to stay meek and humble?

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:8
King James Version

“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss
for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:
for whom I have suffered the loss of all things,
and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,”

Blessed are The Meek ~

Blessed Are by Joe Cacazos free photo #5225

Blessed are those who are humble,
those who are submissive and meek
those who give themselves to God
who’s will they obediently seek.

Blessed are those who are gentle,
those who are patient and tolerant
those who are rarely provoked
who are restrained and moderate.

Blessed are those who are tranquil,
those who are calm and serene
those who are unruffled and relaxed
who God’s peace they quietly glean.

Blessed are those who are gracious,
those who are forgiving and kind
those who are polite and respectful
who love with their whole heart and mind.

Blessed are those who are patient,
those who don’t grumble or complain
those who accept what God offers
who endure the good with the pain.

Blessed are those who are humble,
those who live under God’s control
the earth is theirs to inherit . . .
for they love Jesus with all of their  soul!

Spotless ~

Love by Reinhard Komanapalli free photo #2729

When my heart is humble,
and self is not in the way
that is when I know . . .
it’s time for me to pray.

When my heart is pure,
and my sins I’ve confessed
that is when I know . . .
just how much I’m blessed.

When my heart is full,
of His mercy and His grace
that is when I know . . .
His favor I shall embrace.

When my heart is chaste,
and of my shame I repent
that is when I know . . .
my sins no longer can torment.

And when my heart is spotless,
cleansed from all the stains
that is when I know . . .
in my life ~ my Savior reigns.
