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.”

Grace To The Humble ~

grace-for-the-humble-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When trials blow,
me to the ground
when my cares
take me down.

Before I rise,
back to my feet
I pray to God
my needs to meet.

When storms blow,
through my door
when my worries
take me to the floor.

Before I get,
to my legs back
I pray to God
for the grace I lack.

For, in my life,
to God I’ve found
to humble myself
when I am down!

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

More Grace ~

grace CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, there is a void,
in the pit of my soul
it feels as if there is . . .
a big, gaping hole.

There is an emptiness,
deep inside my heart
I feel as if my world . . .
is unraveling apart.

There is a hollowness,
that my spirit senses
I feel as if I’m living . . .
under false pretenses.

There is an abyss,
a darkness, I can’t see
I feel as if it’s going to . . .
swallow up, the all of me.

Lord, there is a void,
a big, dark gaping space
I need You to fill it . . .
with more of Your grace!

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!

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

Holding the Line

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
