One Day In Heaven ~

One Day In Heaven ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

One day in heaven,
we will have perfect rest
when with eternal life
we are finally blessed.

We’ll have rest from heartache,
from our every sorrow
rest from our labor
the worries of tomorrow.

We’ll have rest from pain,
every disease and illness
rest from death and dying
our own spiritual sickness.

We’ll have rest from suffering,
from all that causes stress
rest from our despair
our cares that hard press.

One day in heaven,
with peace we’ll be blessed
when with Jesus . . .
we eternally come to rest!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall be
no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there
be any more pain: for the former
things are passed away.”

If We Walk In The Light ~

If we’re to shine the Light,
then why more like Jesus aren’t we
why is His reflection in us . . .
so hard for others to see?

If we’re to act as the Light,
then why don’t we share
why to the Good News
don’t we make more people aware?

If we’re to live in the Light,
then why aren’t we a witness
why aren’t we spreading the truth
to those still living in darkness?

If we’re to be the Light,
then where is our power
why do we let satan . . .
our strength erode and devour?

If we walk in the Light,
our hope would radiate
and Jesus’ love for the world
we would always advocate!

~~~~~~

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.”

The Object of My Faith ~

The object of my faith,
is Jesus and no other . . .
with anything or one else
I don’t even want to bother.

For, all other devices,
are just diversions
and all other gospels
are just perversions.

So, I keep my focus on,
what is my eternal goal
not that which will bring
damnation to my soul.

For, this world is full of,
all kinds of spiritualness
but, in Jesus I have found
truth and righteousness.

Jesus is the only object,
in which to put our trust
for, faith without His grace
alone cannot save us!

John 1:29

“The next day John seeth
Jesus coming unto him,
and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh away
the sin of the world.”

God’s Gift of Love ~

God's Gift of Love ~ CHRSTian poetry by deborah ann

A manger’s crib,
a virgin’s birth
a Babe is born
peace on earth.

Angels above,
glory, glory sing
over the coming
of the King of Kings.

A new hope,
a new day
a Savior born
to show the way.

Wise men travel,
from afar
to find the truth
behind the Star.

A new covenant,
a new joy
all wrapped up in
Mary’s little Boy!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:10-11

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

And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him: and when
they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto him gifts; gold,
and frankincense and myrrh.”

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
for, I am not ashamed
of saying I’m a CHRISTian!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:14

“Ye are the light of the world.
A city that is set on an hill
cannot be hid.”

God’s Free Gift To All ~

God gave to all a gift,
a present like no other
some openly receive it
others with it don’t bother.

Some take their whole lives,
to unwrap God’s loving gift
some from the get go
don’t believe it will ever fit.

Some accept it openly,
some keep it under-wraps
some make it their whole life
some think it is just a trap.

Some take their time,
to understand what’s inside
some instantly push the gift
of grace and mercy aside.

God gave to all a free Gift,
of His begotten, beloved Son
and He desires it to be . .
received by each and everyone!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:18

“Therefore as by the offence
of one judgment came upon
all men to condemnation;
even so by the righteousness
of one the free gift
came upon all men unto
justification of life.”

Staying Focused ~

Oh, do I have troubles,
boy, do I have cares
everyday on my nerves
they gnaw and wear.

But, I don’t let them,
eat away at me . . .
instead to my Father
I go on bended knee.

Oh, do I have worries,
boy, do I have woes
everyday on my peace
they want to impose.

But, I don’t let them,
take their toll on me . . .
instead I go to Jesus
and in His arms I flee.

Oh, do I have problems,
boy, do I ever have concerns
but, I just keep my focus . . .
on the day Jesus returns!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:17

“For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more
exceeding and eternal weight
of glory;”

Why Do You Celebrate CHRISTmas ~

Why do you celebrate CHRISTmas,
what does it do for you . . .
does the real meaning of it
hold for you what is true?

For, CHRISTmas is God’s Gift,
of His love for one and all
He sent His Son so you would
receive salvation’s call.

What do you want from CHRISTmas,
what are you looking for
do you not know by now
you can’t find it in a store?

For, Jesus was born to be,
the Savior of the world
and onto His shoulders
every sin, God unfurled.

You may think you don’t need Him,
but, He will always want you . . .
to ask Him for forgiveness
so He can make all things new.

Why do you celebrate CHRISTmas,
what does it really mean to you?
For, CHRISTmas is only about
a Savior’s dying love for you!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:11

“For unto you is born this day
in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.”

1 Peter 2:24

“Who his own self bare our sins
in his own body on the tree,
that we, being dead to sins,
should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed.”

Another New Year ~

Soon there will be,
another New Year . . .
twelve more months
will again be here.

I don’t know about you,
but my, how time flies
years seem to pass . . .
like a blink of my eyes.

Speaking about blinking,
I cannot help thinking
will this be the year . . .
I’ll witness that twinkling.

For, I know at any second,
Jesus could come again
and to this all I can say . . .
is Amen and Amen.

So my only resolution,
for the approaching New Year
is to keep my ears open . . .
so the last trump I can hear!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:52

In a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trump:
for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.

The Greatest Gift ~

The greatest Gift,
that you can give
is the One . . .
that sin, forgives.

For, it’s full of grace,
joy, love and light
when it’s opened
it gives new sight.

The greatest Gift,
to pass along
is the One . . .
that lasts all  lifelong.

For, eternal life,
is its only content
making it the most
Wonderful present.

So if you don’t know,
this year what Gift to give
tell others why Jesus . . .
in your life now lives!

The Coming King ~

A Gift from God,
a Savior born
on one starlit
glorious morn.

A Babe, a Boy
a virgin’s Son
imparting grace
to everyone.

A Man, a Prince,
a coming King
who in an eye blink
eternal peace will bring.

A Counselor,
an Everlasting Father
one day every knee
will give Him honor.

A mighty God,
a sacrificial Lamb
the beloved Son
the Wonderful I AM.

A Gift from God,
from beginning to end
Jesus is . . .
our eternal Friend!

~~~~~~

“I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the ending,

and which was,

The Miracle of CHRISTmas ~

Throughout history,
God had a plan . . .
about how He could save
all of man.

 So, He’s appeared to Moses,
in a burning bush
and in Elijah He was
that whispering, small hush.

He gave men dreams,
and many visions too
even a donkey talked
to get His Word through.

But man’s heart was like stone,
and wouldn’t heed to His way
and He knew like sheep
they had all gone astray.

So God became silent,
for over four-hundred years
what He was up to . . .
wasn’t meant for our ears.

Then He sent His Son,
one Christmas morn
and to the whole world
a Savior was born.

The Word became flesh,
and lived amongst us
and taught all who’d listen
how in His Father to trust.

He talked about sin,
repentance and forgiveness
He talked about His Fathers
mercy, grace and goodness.

His message was clear,
lives He could transform
if to the world ways
they would not conform.

And now two-thousand years,
have come and gone
but, the miracle of CHRISTmas
still today lives on.

For God had a plan,
right from the start
and it’s never  to late to ask . . .
Jesus into your heart!

~~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

All I Want for Christmas ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann - Twelve Days of Chirstian - image Wikipedia Common

I don’t want a bird sitting in my tree,
or any number of any kind of dove
I don’t want hens inside of my house
all I need, is God’s gift of eternal love.

I don’t want anyone milking anything,
or any one leaping all around
I don’t want rings of any type
all I want, is to get my victory crown.

I don’t want anything that’s swimming,
no piping or drumming crowds
I don’t want anyone dancing anywhere
all I want, is to see Jesus in the clouds.

I don’t want any pears or turtles,
nothing that is french, gold or laying
I don’t want geese, swans or maids
nor ladies or lords in my home staying.

I don’t want anything this CHRISTmas,
I don’t want to cause you buying strife
all I want from you this year . . .
is for you to invite  Jesus into your life!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is
eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

The Remorseful Appeal ~

God hears our cries,
our sins He knows
He sees the tears
from our eyes flow.

God sees us weeping,
over our disgrace
He knows our need
for His merciful grace.

God listens to our sobs,
as His name we call
He watches the tears
from broken hearts fall.

God hears the outcry,
of our remorseful appeal
He knows by His stripes
our lives Jesus came to heal.

God understands our cries,
for His own Son, too wept
and with His in a bottle
all of our tears are kept!

~~~~~~~

“Thou tellest my wanderings:
put thou my tears into
thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?”

A Look Into the Manger ~

Some people look,
but they don’t see
the gift God sent
to set them free.

They see a manger,
but not the Savior
they see a Babe
but not God’s favor.

They see a Boy,
but not the King of Kings
they see a Child
but not the hope He brings.

They see the Wise Men,
but not the Prince of Peace
they see the Shepherds
but not God’s love released.

Some people look,
into the manger
but they only see . . .
Jesus as a stranger!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:12

“And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.”

Christmas Traditions ~

We all have our own,
Christmas traditions . . .
and so we put our homes
through all kinds of transitions.

We set up our Christmas trees,
on branches, ornaments we dangle
we hang up Christmas stockings
along with garland on the mantle.

We all have our own,
Christmas time rituals . . .
and so our yearly customs
have become habitual.

We shop until we drop,
buying Christmas wishes on our list
we check it more than once
to make sure we get the right gift.

We cook and we bake,
Christmas pies, cakes and cookies
we peel, we dice, we roast
so we can binge on all the goodies.

We all have our traditions,
but they have no real connection . . .
to the true meaning of CHIRSTmas
they’re nothing more than a deflection!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6-7

For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be
upon his shoulder: and his name
shall be called Wonderful,
Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government
and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David,
and upon his kingdom, to order it,
and to establish it with judgment
and with justice from henceforth
even for ever. The zeal of the
Lord of hosts will perform this.”

The Joy of CHRISTmas ~

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
ring in your ears
may the hope it brings
rid you of your fears.

For unto this day,
a Child was born
a Savior to the world
one glorious morn.

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
feel you with cheer
may the peace it brings
last all throughout the year.

For unto to this day,
God sent us His Son
loved and begotten
to bring joy to everyone.

May the joy of CHRISTmas,
ring loud and clear
may the love that it brings
draw Jesus to you near!

This Is The Life ~

This is the life,
this is what I call livin’
this is what it is like . . .
when your sins are forgiven.

This is first-rate,
this is what I always needed
this is what it is like . . .
when your life to God is heeded.

This is the real-deal,
this is how it should always be
this is what it is like . . .
to have Jesus abiding in me.

This is top-notch,
this is all I could ask for
this is what it is like . . .
believing in life forever more.

This is life,
at its absolute best
this is what it is like . . .
having God’s peace and rest!

There Would Be No CHRISTmas ~

There would be no CHRISTmas,
without God’s mercy and His love
there would be no Nativity
without this Gift from above.

There would be no hope,
without the Virgin’s birth
there would be no joy
for a new heaven and earth.

There would be no Holy Night,
without the Good News
there would be no adoring Him
without the King of the Jews.

There would be no peace,
without the Prince dying for it
there would be no rebirth
without the Holy Spirit.

There would be no CHRISTmas
without Calvary’s cross . . .
for Jesus was born to save
the sinner and the lost!

The Gospel of Life ~

Thank you Lord,
for the Gospel of Life
for giving hope
instead of strife.

For the light,
of Your love
for Your Spirit
from above.

Thank you Lord,
for true liberty
for over sin
having victory.

For forgiveness,
and Your grace
for the chance
to seek Your face.

Thank you Lord,
for life eternal
for saving me from . . .
hell’s infernal!

My Joy Found ~

In Jesus,
my joy was found
and because of Him
I am heaven bound.

I found my faith in Jesus,
His name fills me with glee
all because I believe . . .
it was He, that first loved me.

I found my way in Jesus,
no longer am I lost
for He has taken me . . .
to the foot of the cross.

I found my hope in Jesus,
with Him my treasures I store
ever since I heard His rap . . .
and open to Him the door.

I found my joy in Jesus,
His name reminds me of
the life I have now . . .
due to His grace and love!

~~~~~~

there is joy in the presence

Rejoicing Always ~

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
when things aren’t going right
it hard to give God thanks . . .
with so many battles to fight.

It’s hard to see God’s hand,
in the middle of the pain
it hard to be grateful
when all your joy is drained.

But we who have Jesus,
living inside of us
know how important it is
in Him to always trust.

For, to always be rejoicing,
takes prayer continually
and then our thanks to God
will come unceasingly.

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
with all that life brings . . .
but, we know it’s God will
to be thankful for all things!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.”
