Where Faith and Love Dwells ~

Sometimes I wander through,
 the valleys of my soul . . .
lingering near the streams of life
when I felt well and whole.

I ponder the times Jesus filled in,
the empty and void space
where His love for me flowed
like a river full of endless grace.

As I stroll along the rugged clefts,
I can see the hard times too
as I roam all around them
His mercy for me shines through.

I come across the mountains,
that I had to hike up to . . .
some of them I never thought
the hard climb I could ever do.

But I remember seeing Jesus,
standing upon the crest
calling down to me
“Come, I’ll give you rest.”

Sometimes I like to wander,
through life’s hills and dells
and go deep into my soul . . .
where faith and love dwells!

Ephesians 3:17

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

If Today You Would Hear ~

Today if you would hear,
if your ears you’d open
you will hear the truth
be told and spoken.

For God will speak,
right to your heart
closing the chasm
keeping you apart.

Today if you would listen,
you’d will be able to hear
Jesus calling you
to come close and near.

For He wants you to know,
for your sin’s He died
how He is waiting for you
with arms stretched out wide.

Today if you would hear,
what God has to say . . .
you will discover the Truth
to the new 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.

I Will Follow Jesus ~

I will follow Jesus,
wherever He leads
be it fields of clover
or ones full of weeds.

I will go after Him,
leave all behind me
so I can trust Him . . .
for what I cannot see.

I will follow Jesus,
my own cross I will bear
be it on stormy seas
or ones calm and fair.

I will stick by Him,
wherever He goes . . .
deny my very own life
for the one for me He chose.

I will follow Jesus,
right into His light
together the darkness
we will expose and fight!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 5:11

And when they had brought
their boats to land, they left
everything and followed him.

Mark 8:34

And calling the crowd to him
with his disciples, he said to them,
“If anyone would come after me,
let him deny himself and take up
his cross and follow me.

John 8:12

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me
will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”

God’s Gift of Light ~

God’s gift of Light,
hopes everlasting ray
shines the Truth . . .
upon our path, the Way.

It pierces the dark,
with its saving glow
illuminates where
Life giving waters flow.

God’s gift of Light,
cannot be concealed . . .
for once it enlightens
all sins are revealed.

It’s drawing effects,
brings about clarity
the judgment to come
and its severity.

God’s gift of Light,
shines bright and true
only it can . . .
the darkness subdue!

in darkness; and the

Jesus Is The Only One ~

Jesus Your light is,
the only One that can
break through the stone
in the heart of man.

For it can shatter,
the cold and icy frost
and bring the ungodly
to the foot of the cross.

Jesus Your light bursts.
the darkness right apart
taking down the barriers
inside of man’s heart.

For it can obliterate,
the evil and corruption
saving the heart of man
from eternal destruction.

Jesus You alone are . . .
the only One who can
breach into the darkness
of the heart of man!

Oh, What A Sight ~

Oh, what a vision,
oh, what a sight
to have seen
that star’s light.

Perched in the sky,
shining above
spotlighting the gift
of God’s perfect love.

Oh, what a vision,
oh, what a glimpse
to have seen
salvation’s eclipse.

A world full of darkness,
finally sees the Light
oh, what utter joy . . .
to have seen the delight.

Oh, what a vision,
oh, what a sight
to have witnessed
that star in flight!

~~~~~~

Matthew 2:10

“When they saw the star,
they rejoiced
with exceeding great joy.”

John 8:12

A Light For Jesus ~

Jesus let me be,
a light for You
help me to expose
the evil people do.

Let me be a voice,
to those who are lost
help me to bring them
to the foot of the cross.

Jesus let me be,
a light of Your grace
help me to help those
still running in the race.

Let me be an example,
of hope, love and peace
help me to help them
the finish line to reach.

Jesus let me be,
a light just for You
help me to debunk . . .
today’s opposing view!

The Light of My Life ~

Today I am singing,
though outside it is gray
I can still see the Light . . .
though the sun’s tucked away.

For the Light that shines in me,
makes my heart radiate
though there maybe clouds
my joy they can’t alienate.

Jesus is that Light,
the song of my salvation
and I don’t need the sun
to sing out my elation.

For the Light of Jesus,
lights up both night and day
nothing stops it from shinning
on the Truth, Life and Way.

Today I am singing,
though outside it is dreary
the Light of my life. . .
is all I need to be cheery!

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!

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!

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk

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!

Walk in The Light ~

Walk in the Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Doorpost Verses

Walk in the light,
you will not be mislead
for it’ll expose to you
temptation up ahead.

Take the light with you,
wherever you may go
it’ll illuminate your path
the moral way it’ll show.

Let the light guide you,
on the road to perfection
it will reveal to you
God’s righteous discretion.

Allow the light to shine,
it will expose the way
to truth and holiness
on the darkest of days.

Walk in the light,
look at its true reflection
for it will lead you
in a heavenly direction!

Every Day is A Journey ~

Follow Jesus by Susan Helmuth free photo #5035

Every day is a hopeful journey,
from the old into the new
every day is an opportunity
Lord, to grow closer to you.

In my daily travelings,
if I venture off too far . . .
send me the directions
right back to where You are.

Every day is a trusting journey,
in the light, of a new dawn
every day is an opportunity
to be Spirit, lead and drawn.

As I walk, on the road of faith,
if I should fall on my face . . .
I pray Lord, You will catch me
in the arms of Your loving grace.

Every day is an abiding journey,
from the old into the new
every day is an opportunity
Lord, in my quest to be like You!

The True Light ~

The True Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
The true light of the season,
isn’t wrapped around our trees
the true light of the season
isn’t hanging from our eaves.

The true light of the season,
isn’t put up, only once a year
the true light of the season
isn’t part of our Christmas gear.

The true light of the season,
never burns out or blows a fuse
the true light of the season
isn’t part of the holiday ruse.

The true light of the season,
cannot be put away or stored
for, the true light of the season
is the Babe, the Christ, our Lord.

Jesus, is the world’s light,
all darkness, He came to diffuse
and love, hope, peace and joy
in your life He wants to infuse!

~~~~~~~~~~

Walk Gently My Friend ~

Walk Gently My Friend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Walk gently my friend,
let your faith guide you
into all of God’s truths
no matter what you do.

Walk gently my friend,
trust God and His plan
when you’re not sure
just hold onto His hand.

Walk gently my friend,
let hope lead the way
whenever you’re in doubt
just stop and pray.

Walk gently my friend,
be aware of the darkness
if you happen upon it . . .
never think it is harmless.

Walk gently my friend,
there’s a lot evil out there
be careful lest you may fall
into one of Satan’s snares!

Sunrise ~

The Glory of the Lord Shines used with permission IBible Verses

Oh, Lord today I was breathless,
when I saw the beauty of Your love
while gazing at the sunrise . . .
peaking through the skies above.

I watched as the stars disappeared,
fading with the dark of night
as the early morning rays beamed
with the hope of eternal light.

As the sun rose before me,
a crimson glow was all I could see
oh, Lord today I was speechless
as Your beauty surrounded me.

How I cherish these mornings,
when I get a glimpse of You
spreading Your mercy around
so Your glory can shine through.

Lord, You gave me this sunrise,
with just the stroke of Your hand
oh, Lord today I was breathless
as Your love lit up the whole land!

Oh, What a Wonder ~

Oh ~ what a wonder,
oh ~ what a delight
now I see everything
in Jesus’ glorious light.

Once I saw darkness,
didn’t know the way
now His truth leads me
both night and day.

Oh ~ what a wonder,
oh ~ what a blessed life
now that I follow Jesus
I have so little strife.

Before I was troubled,
tormented on every side
but now the Holy Spirit
is my eternal guide.

Oh ~ what a wonder,
oh ~ what a new song
all of my praises
to the Son, now belong.

Jesus has given me,
a reason to live
and all of my heart
to Him,  I gladly give!
