Estranged ~

world-changers ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I look around,
so much has changed . . .
it seems as if to this world
I have become estranged.

What it thinks is amusing,
entertaining and fun . . .
are the exact same things
everyday I must shun.

Its thoughts and views,
are liberal, open and wide
but, I don’t let in my mind
sinful pleasures to abide.

What to others is appealing,
enjoyable and pleasing
only leaves my soul . . .
mourning and grieving.

The world can’t see the sin,
the immorality, the wrong
and it is because of this
I know in it, I don’t belong.

I feel like a stranger,
in my very own country
and to its ways ~ I refuse
to be intimate or friendly!

James 4:4

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not
that the friendship of the world is enmity
with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend
of the world is the enemy of God.”

Friend of the World ~

world-changers ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Into the world God sends us,
to be the light unto the way
but, sometimes to its likes
it’s so easy to be swayed.

It can be so very hard,
to walk the narrow path
for, we know those not on it
will scoff at us and laugh.

So many temptations,
they dangle before our eyes
some of them look so good
we can’t see past Satan’s lies.

They’ll say it’s all harmless,
everyone else is doing it . . .
but we know deep in our hearts
they are not a Godly fit.

Lord, into the world You send us,
but not to be its friend . . .
for, we know on the wide way
hell, is just around the bend!

Be A Foghorn . . .

newhaven-lighthouse-wave

The beacon’s light has faded,
the foghorn is now but mute
the lighthouse stands alone
on the hill of ill-repute.

Silenced now, from the left,
the warning sounds no more
the lighthouse is in the dark
upon this nation’s shaken shore.

Once a beam unto the world,
a responsibility we all shared
now the people of this republic
are caught up in Satan’s snare.

In the past we stood in honor,
to the God in whom we trust
now we offend and discriminate
with His truth on greed and lust.

The church once held the beacon,
in the palm of its blessed hand
but it no longer wants or cares
to take a bold and daring stand.

It’s time to wake up the masses,
and shine His light on our grime
for to hold back the Gospel’s truth
is a spiritual sin and crime.

Let me be perfectly honest,
my God I will always defend
for I rather be a foghorn . . .
then to be ~ this world’s friend!
