New Year’s Resolutions ~

New Year's Resolution~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Now that the holidays,
are finished and over . . .
we’re ready to make up
our new plans, to go for.

So we write out our list,
of freshly made resolutions
arrange them out carefully
for their perfect executions.

We set out all determined,
to reach our new-born goals
but within the first months
we lose all our self-control.

So this year if you want,
to really get into shape . . .
then your new year plans
you will need to scrape.

For you don’t need a list,
of new things you should do
all you need is your Bible . . .
and a year to read it through!

Romans 15:4

“For whatsoever things were written
aforetime were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of
the scriptures might have hope.”

God’s Will ~

the-will-of-god-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some people struggle,
with knowing God’s will
some people think
they just have to be still.

Some people toil,
laboring night and day
some people say “works”
are the only way.

Some people resist,
they just can’t conceive
some people just plainly
do not believe.

Some people are busy,
doing other things
some people can’t see
what good it will bring.

Some people understand,
if God’s will they’re to know
then into their Bible . . .
they will have to go!

2 Timothy 3:16-17
King James Version

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

“That the man of God may be perfect,
thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

Our First Love ~

let-us-return-to-the-lord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Let us return to our First Love,
into the arms of everlasting grace
let our steps be healed and restored
let us earnestly seek God’s face.

Let us repent from our sins,
examine ourselves in His light
let us return to our First Love
with all our soul and might.

Let us turn to the Word of God,
for our path and instruction
let us return to our First Love
for the Way and true direction.

Let us lift our hearts and minds,
give unto God our very soul
let us return to our First Love
so we can once again be whole!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:40
King James Version

“Let us search and try our ways,
and turn again to the Lord.”

Merge ~

Merge ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, show me Your will,
keep me on course
teach me to trust You
as my salvation’s source.

Lead me in Your truth,
guide me all my days
give me Your direction
in all of my ways.

Instruct me to wait,
until Your ready for me
grant me Thy patience
till Your path I see.

Train me to follow,
after Your every deed
offer me Your wisdom
to see my own greed.

Enlighten my soul,
to Your every urge
keep me in Your sight
until our paths merge!

~~~~~

Psalm 25:4-5

King James Version

“Shew me thy ways,
O Lord; teach me thy paths.

Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
for thou art the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day.”

I’m Still Listening ~

Listen to Advise used withpermission Doorpost Verses on facebook

I’m still listening Lord,
my ears are ever more inclined
to Your instructions
that for me, You’ve designed.

I’m still trainable,
Your wisdom I will always need
give me more of Your advice
and  to Your Word I will heed.

I know it takes time,
for Your knowledge to set in
every day I am comprehending
where awareness truly begins.

Help me to keep learning Lord,
even though I’m getting old
give me more of Your wisdom
so Your full glory I can behold!

What is The Bible ~

What is the Bible ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Bible is the breath of God,
profitable for teaching
it’s a reproof and a correction
to use for righteous training.

It’s the Living Word of God,
it makes us competent and able
it equips us for good works
keeping our lives in Him stable.

It is a lamp to our feet,
a light unto our path
when we choose to follow it
it will keep us from God’s wrath.

It’s to be used for mediation,
all our living nights and days
it is the Bread of Life
that shows us our evil ways.

It instructs us on endurance,
encourages us in the faithful race
it persuades us to continue
to seek and find God’s face.

It is living and it active,
it’s as sharp as a two edge sword
it pierces through the heart
so our souls can be restored.

It’s a wonder to the open eye,
out of the law comes salvation
it’s the pure spiritual milk
spilling forth God’s revelation.

It’s to be stored in our hearts,
it will keep us from sin
it’s to be used in our daily battles
so over the enemy we will win.

It will guard our hearts and minds,
it will keep us in perfect peace
and we should always keep  . . .
our Bible’s within close reach.

But, for some it sits on their shelf,
other’s shove it in a drawer
and most just don’t make the time
to read the Bible anymore!
