A Living Sacrifice ~

If you want to really find,
God’s good and perfect will
then you must give to Him
your ego, pride and self-will.

You will need to submit,
your heart, mind and soul
over to the Holy Spirit
so He can take control.

Then He will teach you,
all about holy living
and your whole life to God
soon you will start giving.

If you really long to be,
to God truly acceptable
if you no longer want to be
to the world’s ways susceptible.

Then you must present,
the new life He’s given to you
as a holy living sacrifice . . .
in all that you say and do!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that
ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God.”

Hungry People ~

Hungry people,
are all around
these starved souls
in darkness abound.

In an ungodly world,
that is full of lust
for they don’t think
they’ll return to dust.

Famished souls,
don’t want the truth
their wanton desires
appease and soothe.

There’s a deep ache,
they have inside
and so from God
they choose to hide.

But God knows,
their real hunger
and He will not  . . .
always slumber.

For, He will shake,
every man’s appetite
until each one sees Jesus
as the One True Light!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:10-11

“That at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
of things in heaven,
and things in earth,
and things under the earth;

And that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”

Dispel Your Despair ~

If your faith is steadfast,
rooted and grounded
when trials come your way
in joy you’ll be surrounded.

For in the very midst,
of your worldly care
counting it all for joy
will dispel your despair.

When in Jesus,
you are truly content
you’ll experience joy
that is heaven sent.

For, whether in sickness,
or in perfect health
joy will bring to you
everlasting wealth.

Joy is not an option,
it’s something God gives
to those where His Spirit
securely abides and lives!

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in
believing, that ye may abound
in hope, through the power
of the Holy Ghost.”

A Trembling Mess ~

I use to be,
panic-stricken
I once was
fear driven.

But then Jesus,
said to me
don’t be afraid
by what you see.

I use to be,
a big worry wart
I once was
anxiety’s transport.

But then Jesus,
took my cares
said they were His
alone to bear.

I use to be,
a trembling mess
but then Jesus carried
away all my distress!

A Gospel-Driven Life ~

A Gospel-driven life,
is a life worth living
its full of power
for it knows its calling.

It’s a life full of hope,
it is Christ-driven
it knows by His grace
it has been forgiven.

A Gospel-driven life,
is one full of light
it uses God’s Word
so darkness it can fight.

It’s a life committed,
to the Truth and Way
it is Spirit-driven
it knows not to stray.

A Gospel-driven life,
sets its mind on above
it finds perfect peace
resting in God’s love.

Romans 15:4

“For whatsoever things
were written aforetime

Abiding On The Vine ~

If we are to remain,
abiding on the Vine
our life’s with Jesus
must intertwine.

If we are to abide,
in Jesus each day
we must be willing
to trust and obey.

If we are to stay,
connected to Him
we must allow Jesus
our branches to trim.

If we are to produce,
for Jesus good fruit
we must daily give
our ego’s a boot.

If we are to remain,
obey, produce and stay
then we must abide . . .
in His Word everyday.

~~~~~~

John 15:5

“I am the vine,
ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me,
and I in him,
the same bringeth
forth much fruit:
for without me
ye can do nothing.”

Never Alone ~

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

His very presence,
gives me such peace
for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

He brings me comfort,
just knowing He’s here
He fills my heart and soul
with joy and good cheer.

I once thought,
I’d be left on my own
but since I found Jesus
I am never alone!

He Restores My Soul ~

He restores my soul,
from the daily fatigue
He repairs my nerves
my fears, He relieves.

He restores my heart,
from its heaviness
He removes the pain
the hurt, the weariness.

He restores my faith,
when weakness sets in
He resets my trust
to follow after Him.

He restores my belief,
when there is doubt
He reinstates in my life
what His truth is about.

He restores my joy,
of a future sighting
He returns my watch
for that twinkling!

Fear Fighting Faith ~

Fear fighting faith,
wins many a battle
when it’s enacted
anxiety it’ll tackle.

Fear fighting faith,
tells satan to flee
it says greater is He
living inside of me.

Fear fighting faith,
uses Bible verses
before worry
even surfaces.

Fear fighting faith,
claims victory
as soon as it feels
a little jittery.

Fear fighting faith,
is easy for you to do
now that the Holy Spirit
lives inside of you!

Heaven, I’m In Heaven ~

When in the middle of the night
when my worries invade me
I close my eyes and think . . ..
how heaven is going to be.

I can see so much beauty,
a light that is so bright
I couldn’t tell you whether
it was morning, noon or night.

I see no hearts in mourning,
not a single tear is falling
there’s not one soul in pain
nor do I hear any crying.

I see the dwelling place of God,
I hear praises to His name
I see all the things made new
and how nothing is the same.

I see walls of precious gems,
inside a paradise like mansion
I see it has so many rooms
with extra space for expansion.

When in the middle of the day,
when my troubles surround me
I close my eyes and think  . . .
how blissful heaven will be!

Out With The Old ~

Out with the old,
on with the new
now that Jesus
lives inside of you.

No more bitterness,
no more anger
now that Jesus
is your Anchor.

No more grudges,
no more frustrations
now that Jesus
is your Foundation.

No more displeasure,
no more resentment
now that Jesus
is your contentment.

On with the new,
out with the old
now that you’re in . . .
Jesus’ fold!

Let all bitterness,

one another, even as God
for Christ’s sake hath
forgiven you.”

The Scope of God’s Love ~

If I had a microscope,
I know I couldn’t see
just how humongous
Jesus’ love is for me.

If I had a telescope,
I know I couldn’t see
just how massive
Jesus’ love is for me.

If I had a periscope,
I know I couldn’t see
just how fathomless
Jesus’ love is for me.

If I had a spectroscope,
I know I couldn’t see
just how magnificent
Jesus’ love is for me.

If I had a depth finder,
I know I couldn’t see
a deeper love than the one
Jesus has for me!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:17-19

“That Christ may dwell
in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted
and grounded in love,

May be able to comprehend
with all saints what is
the breadth, and length,
and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled
with all the fulness of God.

United ~

When God teaches you,
the truth He will show
and the things of His will
you will want to know.

When God in His Word,
begins to guide you
you’ll want godly conduct
in the things that you do.

When God teaches you,
how to walk on His way
you will choose carefully
the things that you say.

When God gives directions,
to the Cross it will lead
there you’ll find Jesus
and the grace to be freed.

When God teaches you,
of His power and might  . . .
He’ll fill you with holy fear
and your hearts will unite!

Be Wary ~

The wilderness can be,
a frightening place
unless we have a sufficient
supply of God’s grace.

For in the wilderness,
we will be tested
and just like Jesus
we too, will be tempted.

When we’re in a place,
we don’t want to be
when alone with danger
we need to get on our knees.

We need to draw near,
to God in prayer
for He knows our adversary
is with us out there.

The wilderness can be,
lonely and scary
and to satan’s tricks
we must be wary!

forty days,

Walking With the Godless ~

When you walk,
from God’s will away
you’ll be on the road
to spiritual decay.

For, satan will come,
with his distorted views
so your mind he can
confound and confuse.

When you walk,
with the godless
your spiritual life
will become a mess.

For, the ungodly,
give worldly advice
to follow it only leads
to spiritual demise.

When you walk,
with the sinful
you better become
for your soul fearful.

For surely to walk,
with the ungodly
your spiritual life . . .
we become sloppy!

~~~~~

“Blessed is the man that walketh
not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

Give God Your Worries ~

give-god-your-worries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people worry,
about anything
some get anxious
over everything.

Some wrestle daily,
with their troubles
some nightly fight
with their struggles.

But, those who wait,
on the Lord are still
the worries they have
their peace cannot steal.

They cast their anxiety,
onto Jesus each day
they don’t fret about
things coming their way.

Some people worry,
about anything
but, those who trust God
give Him their everything!

I Love Jesus ~

I love Jesus,
this I can’t deny
His love for me
I’ll forever rely.

I trust Jesus,
He trusts me . . .
He’s my anchor
on life’s stormy sea.

I delight in Jesus,
He delights in me
one day in heaven
we are going to be.

I believe in Jesus,
He believes in me
He gives me faith
in what I can’t see.

I’m a friend of Jesus,
He’s befriended me
no greater love . . .
will I ever see!

Bursts of Spring ~

Bursts of Spring,
are in the air . . .
tiny glimpses of
days warm and fair.

A tree bud,
a poppy bloom
heals the ache
of winter’s gloom.

Bursts of Spring,
fill my sights
to warm my thoughts
on still cold nights.

A bird’s faint song,
a mostly blue sky
the last snow flake
to float on by.

Little-bitty bursts of Spring,
God is sending  . . .
for it’s the season we need
His loving tending!

Son Rise ~

Lord, open up eyes,
and hearts too
so others may today . . .
come to know You.

Open up their minds,
let Your love sink in
so others may today
be forgiven of their sin.

Open up their ears,
let them really hear
the reason Your Father
even sent You here.

Open up their souls,
to Your eternal grace
so others may today
Your life in theirs embrace.

Father, open up souls,
ears, hearts and eyes
so others may today . . .
see Your glorious Son rise!
