God Is ~

God is . . .

Our Shadow in the heat,
our Calm in the wave
our Refuge in the storm
the Father who can save.

Our Peace surpassing,
our Stillness unreal
our Hope never-ending
the God to whom we kneel.

Our Buckler of Trust,
our Horn of Salvation
our Rock of Strength
the Judge of every nation.

Our Cloud in the Night
our Light unto the Way
our very Present Help
the Potter of the clay.

Our Shield of Faith,
our High Lofty Tower
our Fortress of Peace
the Almighty full of Power!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 25:4

“For thou hast been
a strength to the poor,
a strength to the needy
in his distress,
a refuge from the storm,
a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the
terrible ones is as
a storm against the wall.”

The Poor In Spirit ~

Blessed Are by  Joe Cacazos free photo #5225

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me see my own depravity
show me all my iniquities
my absolute spiritual poverty.

Give me the understanding,
to recognize my sinful condition
let me dwell on my wickedness
till I feel the sting of conviction.

Show me my lustful appetites,
the habits of selfishness
let me look upon my heart
till I see my own helplessness.

Let me see my sinfulness,
what’s not pleasant in Your sight
examine and judge me
for Your laws are always right.

Shut up in me Your loving grace,
lock up in me Your tender mercy
let me exercise my full obedience
till Your love flows out of me.

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me be, for You hard pressed
let me see my absolute poverty
so I may be ~ heaven blessed!

No ~ Not Even One!

10 Comandments used with permission Creation Swap

Her heart was filled with lust,
her spirit was broken down
she was sought by the men
who lived all through her town.

She lived her life in darkness,
she knew she would be stoned
yet, she carried on in her sin
till her secret was made known.

They caught her red-handed,
right in the sinful act
and they brought her to Jesus
with all the details of the fact.

They asked Him to judge her,
to indict her for her sin
they even called Him their Master
in hopes a ruling they would win.

He knew she was an adulterous,
told the blood thirsty crowd so
then He said, “You without sin”
go ahead and cast the first throw.

They caught her in her sin,
they saw the crime she had done
but they could not condemn her
no ~ not even one!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 8: 7
King James Bible

“So when they continued asking Him, He
raised Himself up and said to them, “He
who is without sin among you, let him
throw a stone at her first.”

Grace Freely Given ~

Grace Freely Given ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann~

Grace freely given,
yet, seldom grace we share
with those whom we love
to show them we care.

We hold on to the past,
bitter, bitter old grudges
making ourselves the jury
and their earthly judges.

Forgiving we try,
forgetting takes so much more
to hurtful things said and done
we keep opening the door.

We pick out others faults,
we blame, condemn, criticize
yet, we cannot see the plank
in our very own  eyes.

Yes, these are Christian people,
that I am talking about . . .
to them grace is freely given
but for them, not easy to give out!

Romans 3:24
King James Version

“Being justified freely by his grace
through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:”

Though I am Born Again . . .

Saved by Jon Tomero free photo #7929

Though I am born again,
I still look the same . . .
the only difference is
I am baptized in His name.

I know I am still a sinner,
but I’m trying hard not to be
and I am sure that my faults
you still can see in me.

I am not yet perfect,
but I am learning every day
how to live like Jesus
and to follow His righteous way.

I know you don’t believe,
but I haven’t a single doubt
and I trust that my Lord
will work all things out.

I’ve got a lot of changing,
that I know I need to do
and I believe that my Savior
will help me see them through.

I’ve made many choices,
that I am not proud of
but I am counting on His mercy
and trusting in His love.

I know when you look at me,
I don’t look any different
but I know somethings new
and in Jesus I am confident.

All I am asking you,
is to give me some more time
before you begin to judge me
and condemn me for my crime.

Though I am born again,
I am not without blame
but the day I accepted Jesus
He took with Him my shame!
