Man’s Heart of Stone ~

Man has a heart of stone,
for God there’s no desire
the Bible is meaningless
not a word does it inspire.

But Jesus can remove,
the stiffness and hardness
till it is a heart of flesh
resembling His likeness.

Man is dead in sin,
lives in utter darkness
sees no need for God . . .
due to his heart’s roughness.

But Jesus can fill,
every heart with His light
if only man would stop
and ask Him for new sight.

Man’s heart is granite like,
it is as cold as stone
but God can carve it . . .
into one of His own!

~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within
you: and I will take away the stony
heart out of your flesh, and I will
give you an heart of flesh.

One Truth ~

There’s only one truth,
that I’ve come know
there’s only one way
that I choose to go.

Though there are many,
who don’t think so . . .
I know God’s truth
is the one line to toe.

There’s only one truth,
that I can swallow
there’s only one path
that I will follow.

Through there are many,
roads that I could take
I’ll take the one leading
right to the straight gate.

There’s only one truth,
that I believe in . . .
there’s only one sure way
this faithful race I can win!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 4:7

I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith:

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father,
but by me.

John 8:12


Only Jesus ~

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other One we can call on
no other person that can help us
to be to His Father drawn.

There’s no other name in heaven,
no other name given unto man
no other person who has for us
the way to salvation’s plan.

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other One with such power
no other One we can rely on
no matter the given hour.

There’s no other name we know,
no other One that loves us
no other name that spells out
in whom we can always trust.

There is no other name that shines,
no other One has the light
no other name helping us
in the battles we fight.

There is no other name like Jesus,
no other name that we can call
no other person can save us
It’s only Jesus ~ or no one at all!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:12

“Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven
given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

Sticky Note From God~ 07.20.19~


Let Your Light Shine ~

Let your Light shine,
let it glow, let it burst
so that more hearts
after Jesus will thirst.

Let your Light beam.
let it radiate, let it spread
so that more souls
to Jesus will be lead.

Let your Light sparkle,
let it gleam, let it glisten
so that more minds
about Jesus will listen.

Let your Light shimmer,
let it transmit, let it radiate
so more of the lost
to Jesus will migrate.

Let our Light ooze,
let it seep, let it exude
so that Lord, Jesus . . .
we can bring more to You!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father
which is in heaven.

There’s Only One God ~

Just like the sun,
must set in the west
I know God for me
is my perfect rest.

I know He’s the only,
God that there is . . .
I believe He knew
I’d be one of His.

Just like the moon,
hanging in the sky
I know God is God
question not why.

Though I’ve not met,
Him face to face
I know through faith
I am saved by grace.

Just as the sun,
rises in the east
I know Jesus is . . .
the only High Priest!

~~~~

Isaiah 45:5-6

I am the Lord,
and there is none else,
there is no God beside me:
I girded thee, though thou
hast not known me:

That they may know from
the rising of the sun, and
from the west, that there
is none beside me.
I am the Lord, and
there is none else.

I’ll Be That Light ~

This CHRISTmas,
I will be that light
my love for Jesus . . .
will shine ever bright.

I will be the one,
who’s hope will glow
my love for Jesus . . .
from my heart will flow.

This CHRISTmas,
my joy will beam
my love for Jesus . . .
off my soul will gleam.

I will be that person,
who’s faith will rise
my love for Jesus . . .
will illuminate my eyes.

This CHRISTmas,
my light will glisten
I’ll not be ashamed
saying I’m a CHRISTian!

Sticky Note to God 04.11.17


I AM The Light of the World ~

Jesus is the Light of the world,
the darkness it out shines . . .
disclosing the evil thoughts
of our hearts, souls and minds.

His light is heart revealing,
to believers or not . . .
His light unmasks the sin
that for man He bought.

His light is soul divulging,
in the darkness it glows
His light is discovering
all wickedness it shows.

His light is illuminating,
it reflects the things hidden
His light is mind piercing
it sees all who are sin driven.

Jesus is the Light of the world,
for all who believe . . .
that He came so everyone
salvation can receive!

~~~~~~~~

John 12:46

“I am come a light into the world,
that whosoever believeth on me
should not abide in darkness.”

One ~

One ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

One God,
one Creator
not one
is greater.

One heaven,
one earth
one Christ
one birth.

One Truth,
one Savior
one Spirit
God’s favor.

One King,
one Lamb
one Child
one I AM.

One Light,
one Life
the only Way
to end man’s strife!

~~~~

John 17:20-21

” Neither pray I for these alone,
but for them also which shall
believe on me through their word;

That they all may be one;
as thou, Father, art in me,
and I in thee, that they
also may be one in us:
that the world may believe
that thou hast sent me.”

Star Search ~

star-search-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A single star shinning,
on a moonless night
God’s gift to the world
wrapped up in One Light.

Wise men make the journey,
from places east and far
in search for what they know
will be the Morning Star.

With gifts they travel,
to the town of Bethlehem
knowing there they’d find
the Babe, the Christ, the Lamb.

And so they came to be,
face to face with their King
knowing He was the Prince
who eternal peace would bring.

One single, solitary star,
still beckons the world today
to follow the Light that leads . . .
to the Truth, Life and Way!

~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not
walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.”

My Morning Light ~

my-morning-light-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

My morning Light,
the darkness breaks
stirs my soul
till it awakes.

It motivates me,
to rise and shine
prompts me to seek
for the day God’s design.

It stirs my heart,
to look above
spurs me to be clothed
in His righteous love.

It entices me,
right to my feet
beckons me to come
and with my Savior meet.

My morning light,
upon its early rise
awakens me to keep
on God, these earthly eyes!

~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk
in darkness, but shall have
the light of life.”

Seeking What’s Wise ~

christmas-934181_640

Lord, may I be a seeker,
a follower of Your light
may I have the wisdom
like the Magi’s had that night.

May I travel the distance,
regardless of how far
may I be willing to go
to wherever You are.

May I have the resolve,
to follow where You lead
may I see to Your will
I must be willing to heed.

May I have the tenacity,
not to ever quit
may I be to Your ways
determined to submit.

May I have the fortitude,
to journey into what’s wise
may I  have the stamina
so Your path I’ll recognize.

Lord, may I always seek You,
like the Magi’s did that night
may I have the courage . . .
to follow after wisdom’s light!

~~~~~~~~~~

Beautiful Savior

Beautiful Savior ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Beautiful Babe,
God’s precious Son
my heart and soul
You have won.

Beautiful Jesus,
Wonderful and True
I’m not the same
since I met You.

Beautiful Shepherd,
Light and Bread
I am so blessed
my heart You led.

Beautiful Savior,
Grace bestowed
the day Your love
for me flowed.

Beautiful Babe,
the world may reject
but my desire for You
it cannot deflect!

~~~~~~

 Isaiah 53:2

“For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form
nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there
is no beauty that we should desire him.”

No Other Name ~

Names of Jesus by Andrew Haight free photo #3974

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other one we can call on
no other person that can help us
to be eternally drawn.

There’s no other name under heaven,
no other name given unto man
no other person who has for us
the way to salvation’s plan.

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other one with such power
no other person who we can rely on
no matter the given hour.

There’s no other name I know,
no other one who loves us
no other name that spells out
who we can always trust.

There is no other name that shines,
no other who has the light
no other name who will help us
battle the enemy that we fight.

There is no other name like Jesus,
no other name that we can call
no other person who can save us
It’s Jesus ~ or no one at all!

“Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven

Be His Light ~

In a world full of darkness,
shine His light . . .
in these times of uncertainty
be His light.

In the lives of those lost,
be the light . . .
in the souls that are dying
be the light.

In the hearts that are hurting,
be the light . . .
in the minds that are unraveling
be the light.

In those who are unsure,
be the light . . .
in the one who is wandering
be the light.

In a world that is perverse,
shine His light
in an earth that is corrupt
be His Light!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:15
King James Version

” That ye may be blameless and harmless, the
sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a
crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye
shine as lights in the world;”
