Getting My Home In Order ~

I’m getting my home in order,
cleaning up all the grime . . .
getting rid of the things
robbing God of my time.

My closet I’ll declutter,
throw out the worthless stuff
toss away my wasteful junk
and all the other useless fluff.

I’m getting my home in order,
clearing out all the rubbish . . .
so that my faith and trust
won’t be weak and sluggish.

I’ll go from room to room,
search until I finally find
all the things that are futile
so I can unbound my mind.

I’m getting my home in order,
my time I’m going to free
so I can spend more of it . . .
thinking about things I can’t see!

Things, Things, Things ~

 Things, things, things,
they are everywhere . . .
things leading my faith
into a state of disrepair.

Things taking up my time,
running my life too
things keeping me from . . .
the “thing” I should do.

Things taking me from God,
wasting my time with them
things I don’t really need
idols He would condemn.

Things cluttering my mind,
taking over my thoughts
things people gave me
things that I have bought.

Things, things, things,
causing me grief and strife
getting rid of those things . . .
not leading to eternal life!

Earthly Treasures ~

I once set my sights,
on worldly things . . .
hoping true happiness
to me they would bring.

But, they soon corroded,
and all turned into rust
that is why it’s only God
in whom I put my trust.

I once relied on people,
to bring me pleasure
but they couldn’t convey
love I could treasure.

For, too often my bubble,
they would only bust
tis why it is in God
I have come to trust.

I once put my trust,
in people and things
but, now I look to God . . .
for the joy salvation brings!

~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor
rust doth corrupt, and
where thieves do not
break through nor steal:

God’s Searching Glance ~

God’s searching glance,
never ceases . . .
over all the universe
it stretches and reaches.

There is no secret place,
that He can’t see into
no screen or cover
He can’t look through.

God’s searching gaze,
is penetrating . . .
thoughts and intentions
He’s always calculating.

He scans the whole world,
all day and all night
watches the good fight evil
right before His sight.

God’s searching glance,
constantly looks to find . . .
all those who trust Him
with a whole heart and mind!

God Gazes From Above ~

God gazes from above,
He’s looking to find
those searching for Him
with all their heart and mind.

He sees not a one,
not one who is seeking
all have turned aside
no one for Him is looking.

God looks to the East,
their souls to Him are idle
He scans to the West
they are their own idols.

He looks to the South,
no – not even one
He looks to the North
their hearts He has none.

God looks and He looks,
all across the seas . . .
but love for the Lord
isn’t in the hearts of these!

What’s In Your Heart ~

What’s in your heart,
what idol has it occupied
what’s causing God . . .
to be small and minimized?

Do you overtly worship,
adore and love it
is it filling up the space
of the Holy Spirit?

What’s on your mind,
what thoughts do you greet
what’s causing Jesus . . .
to take a back seat?

Do you openly fantasize,
on worldly pleasure
is it taking the place
of your eternal treasure?

What is in your heart,
what is on your mind
what is satan using . . .
to keep your soul blind?

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.

Sticky Note From God ~11.12.18~


The Heart of My Soul ~

Lord help me to keep,
on my heart a watchful eye
so that it may not for You
shrivel up and dry.

Let me be meticulous,
as to what I let into it
so it is always opened
to the wisdom of Your spirit.

Lord, help me to guard,
the heart of my soul
so that it’ll always be
in Your righteous control.

Let me be scrupulous,
as to what I hold dear
so that it may be filled
with holy awe and fear.

Lord, help me to keep,
my heart to Your keeping
so that my life will be . . .
to You always pleasing!

Good Morning Quote ~05.09.18~


Lord, Tell Me What You See ~

Lord search my heart,
tell me what You see . . .
let me know if any evil
is still left inside of me.

Take a real close look,
for the sin that’s hidden
any idols I hold onto
keeping me yet smitten.

Once You point them out,
let me get rid of . . .
all that still keeps me
from Your prefect love.

Then put me on the path,
to the everlasting way
so that I may follow it
whole heatedly every day.

Lord search my heart,
tell me what you see . . .
let me know how I can live
a life more pleasing to Thee!

~~~~~~~~~~

And see if there be any wicked way in me,

The Object of My Faith ~

The object of my faith,
is Jesus and no other . . .
with anything or one else
I don’t even want to bother.

For, all other devices,
are just diversions
and all other gospels
are just perversions.

So, I keep my focus on,
what is my eternal goal
not that which will bring
damnation to my soul.

For, this world is full of,
all kinds of spiritualness
but, in Jesus I have found
truth and righteousness.

Jesus is the only object,
in which to put our trust
for, faith without His grace
alone cannot save us!

The gods Of This Day ~

The gods Of The Day ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, may I not bow,
to the gods of this day
may my heart and soul
never to them sway.

May I not bend,
to the god of tolerance
may I not open my mind
to this ungodly audience.

May I not curtsy,
to the god of worldly greed
may I not pay the high cost
of following this god’s creed.

May I not fall down,
to the god of self-worship
may to this god I see
how it’s eternally worthless.

May I not lower myself,
to the god of secularism
may I not stoop for
the god of liberalism.

Lord, may I only bow to You,
the God of all creation . . .
may I always give to You
my full undivided devotion!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 1:23-25

” And changed the glory
of the uncorruptible God

into an image made like
to corruptible man,

and to birds, and fourfooted beasts,
and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up
to uncleanness through the lusts
of their own hearts, to dishonour
their own bodies between themselves:

Who changed the truth of God into a lie,
and worshipped and served the creature
more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.”
Amen.

A Living God ~

hope-in-living-god CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I worship a living God,
the only one there is
every nation, every man
in the universe are His.

There’s no mother nature,
trees don’t have a soul
nor rocks or birds in the air
over Him have control.

He’s a God of power,
mighty are His works
unlike the other gods
who have worldly perks.

The vanities of other gods,
are full of nothingness
believing in them brings
only eternal emptiness.

Today there are millions,
of different gods and idols
but my hope is in the only God
who is living and not idle!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach,
because we trust in the living God,

He’s Looking!

He gazes from above,
He’s looking to find
who is searching for Him
with all their heart and mind.

He sees not a one,
not one who is seeking
all have turned aside
no one for Him is looking.

He looks to the East,
their souls to Him are idle
He scans to the West
they are, their own idols.

He looks to the South,
no – not even one
He looks to the North
their hearts, He has none.

He looks and He looks,
all across the seas
but love for the Lord
isn’t in the hearts of these!

What God Do You Believe In?

idol

Some people don’t believe in God,
they can’t see the proof of His creation
they think all the beauty before them
came from the book of evolution.

Some people can’t be sure of God,
they think perhaps there may be one
but since they can’t see or feel Him
they think perhaps there may be none.

Some people don’t want to know God,
they love the darkness not His light
and upon their beds they plan
all the evil deeds they do in His sight.

Some think god and nature are one,
that he has no eyes, no ears, no face
they say he has no heart to love you
therefore, he can’t impart eternal grace.

Some people think they are god,
they don’t want to be told what to do
they are ruled by their pride and ego
and their arrogance they love to spew.

Some people think any god will do,
that one god is just as good as another
and no matter the religious path you take
it’s gonna lead us all to come together.

Some people believe in the one true God,
for He is the self-revealing God of man
and through the gift of salvation we believe
Jesus will finish ~ what He began!

Getting My House In Order!

As For Me and My House used with permission Doorstop Verses

I’m getting my house in order,
I’m cleaning up the grime
gonna get rid of the things
that are just a waste of time.

I’m clearing out the closets,
throwing away all my stuff
gonna toss out the frivolity
and get rid of the useless fluff.

I’m going from room to room,
until all my idols I uncover
gonna give every one away
so my God ~ I can rediscover.

Then I’m going to spend,
my free time in the Word
I’ll be picking up my Bible
and getting closer to my Lord.

Things ~

Don't lose sight used with permission IBible Verses

Things, we all possess them,
most of them have a hold on us
demanding all of our attention
oh, how over them we love to fuss.

Things, cluttering up our lives,
stuffed away in crammed drawers
lying out in the open spaces
locked away behind closed doors.

Things, keeping us so very busy,
taking us here and there
requiring all our leisure moments
leaving no time for God to spare.

Things, the need for this and that,
longing after the newest toy
always needing to upgrade
oh, how they give us so much joy.

Things, we gotta have them all,
tucking them deep inside our heart
playing with them in our minds
keeping us from God far apart.

Things, we all have lots of them,
taking the place of our Bibles
oh, how we worship them . . .
but to God they’re all idols!

Worldly Things

I Love Jesus free photo by David Elgena # 5344

There is only one God,
in whom I put my trust
all of the other ones
have turned into rust.

I once relied on people,
to bring to me pleasure
but they couldn’t convey
love that I could treasure.

Everything is conditional,
nothing is without a cost
and now I can understand
why so many are truly lost.

I thought if I set my sights,
on the things of this world
that everlasting happiness
I would be able to unfurl.

But, they too soon corroded,
and all turned into dust
that is why it’s only God
in whom I now put my trust.

For His love is eternal,
and brings heavenly rewards
now being with Him one day
is all that I look towards.

All Other god’s Are Idols

All Other God's Are Idols ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

All other gods are just idols,
worthless, useless and feign
they hold no power or value
nor can they rule or reign.

There’s only One God I know of,
He made the heavens and earth
and the Good News I bring you
will show His magnificent worth.

Honor and majesty are before Him,
strength and beauty is His domain
the sea swells to His greatness
Holier than Holy is His blessed name.

He has brought salvation to the world,
to all the people of every nation
soon He will pour out His judgment
and each will receive their due ration.

The universe will tremble before Him,
when on His magnificence all eyes gaze
the trees in the forest will rejoice
every living creature will sing His praise.

Mercy and truth He will bring,
than all other gods will burn away
for all the people will finally see
His righteousness on judgment day.

All other gods are just idols,
worthless, useless and feign
and I have a burning need to tell you
my God will soon come to  reign!
