Hungry People ~

Hungry people,
are all around
these starved souls
in darkness abound.

In an ungodly world,
that is full of lust
for they don’t think
they’ll return to dust.

Famished souls,
don’t want the truth
their wanton desires
appease and soothe.

There’s a deep ache,
they have inside
and so from God
they choose to hide.

But God knows,
their real hunger
and He will not  . . .
always slumber.

For, He will shake,
every man’s appetite
until each one sees Jesus
as the One True Light!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:10-11

“That at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
of things in heaven,
and things in earth,
and things under the earth;

And that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”

Living Water ~

Water Bottle by Daniel R free photo #10215

Are you happy,
are you satisfied
does your life now
leave you gratified?

Or are you wanting,
something else
something you can’t find
within yourself?

Are you comfortable,
are you content
have all that you need
in any event?

Or are you finding,
there has to be more
though you have it all
you still feel poor?

Then my friends . . .
I know what you need
there are living waters
that will never recede.

All you have now,
will turn into rust . . .
but, Jesus is someone
you can always trust.

He’ll quench your thirst,
with hope He’ll fill you
and a new life He’ll breathe
right into you too.

So come my friends,
be filled with His fullness
from the water of grace
drink in Jesus’ goodness!

John 7:37

“In the last day, that great day of the feast,
Jesus stood and cried, saying,
If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink”

The Latter Rain ~

The Later Rain ~ CHRISTIan poetry by deborah ann

I can feel the sprinkling,
of the latter rain . . .
I can see the first drops
falling on a world full of pain.

I can tell the time is near,
by the heart-broken cries
I can hear the thunder roar
over the false prophets lies.

I can perceive the drought,
upon all nations of the land
I can envision the deadly hunger
as God releases Armageddon’s plan.

I can sense the precipitation,
of wars and rumors of every kind
I can recognize the dribble . . .
Satan’s uses on man’s mind.

I can see disease’s down pouring
as it spreads from coast to coast
I can tell of the ungodly leaders
teeming to be the Anti-Christ host.

I can hear the violent sputter,
beneath the earth’s shaky crust
I can see how sin has drenched
the world in greed and lust.

I can sense a deluge coming,
when the latter rain will fall
I can hear God’s warning  . . .
” This is your wake-up call!”

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 24:6
King James Version

” For many shall come in my name, saying,
I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of
wars: see that ye be not troubled: for
all these things must come to pass, but
the end is not yet”

Surrender Your Heart ~

Surrender Your Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

That searching in your heart,
the hunger that you feel
can only be satisfied . . .
when you know God’s will.

A life that is surrendered,
that meets His demands
will find divine direction
when left in His hands.

Maybe your life you’ve made,
a complete and utter mess of
but don’t limit what God can do
with His unconditional love.

When Jesus has your heart,
His good pleasure works in you
and the Holy Spirit’s power
will turn you into something new.

That hunger in your heart,
the thirst that you feel
only Jesus can satisfy . . .
only God’s mercy can fill!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:6
King James Version 

“Blessed are they which do hunger
and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.”

Jesus Is It ~

Your life,
Jesus loves it
your soul
Jesus redeemed it.

Your heart,
Jesus lives in it
your body
Jesus restores it.

Your sin,
Jesus forgives it
your past
Jesus forgets it.

Your future,
Jesus plans it
your walk
Jesus leads it.

Your labor,
Jesus blesses it
your freedom
Jesus secured it.

Your thirst,
Jesus quenches it
your hunger
Jesus feeds it.

Your need,
Jesus imparts it
your desire
Jesus grants it.

Your path,
Jesus walked it
your storm
Jesus crossed it.

Your fear,
Jesus calms it
your doubt
Jesus stills it.

Your worry,
Jesus took it
your peace
Jesus brings it.

Your need,
Jesus fills it
your prayer
Jesus hears it.

Your pain,
Jesus felt it
your grief
Jesus heals it.

Your praise,
Jesus loves it
your faith
Jesus wants it.

Your salvation
Jesus bought it
your hope . . .
Jesus is it!

Colossians 3:11

Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free:
but Christ is all, and in all.”

My Friends Think I’m Peculiar

My Friends Think I'm Peculiar ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My friends think I’m peculiar,
some say I am a little odd
most think that I’m just weird
because I still trust in God.

They too were once believers,
but now they walk in the dark
the light once shinning in them
has become cold and stark.

They no longer hunger,
or thirst for the righteous way
they no longer see the truth
in what the Bible has to say.

For most they have given up,
the narrow way was too hard
and with every bump and jolt
their faith in God was jarred.

Now their hearts are set upon,
the worldly things of the flesh
they tell me that my  beliefs
and their desires do not mesh.

My friends think I’m peculiar,
some say I am a little odd . . .
but I pray for them everyday
to turn back and trust in God.

1 Peter 2:9
King James Version

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal
priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people;
that ye should shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of darkness into his
marvellous light;”
