Tag Archives: Life ~ Light ~ Way

In My Bible ~

Somethings in my Bible I’ve found  . . .

the Word of Life
the end to strife
the mind of God
the road that’s broad
the state of man
the eternal plan
the heart of Jesus
the grace that frees us
the true Vine
the new wine
the gift of salvation
the doom of damnation
the way of hope
the how to cope
the river of pleasure
the everlasting treasure
the guidance needed
the laws to be heeded
the mercy-seat
the Savior’s feet
the schemes of the devil
the powers in high-levels
the Light
the fight
the path
the wrath
the Way
the escape
from
judgment day!

~~~~~~

2 Timothy 2:15

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.”

I Look For The Light ~

I look for the Light,
I search it out
for in its truth
I never doubt.

I seek the Son,
I look for a ray
of hope to shine
upon my day.

I look for the Light,
I watch for a glimpse
of the promise
of eternal bliss.

I seek the Life,
I look for the path
leading away
from God’s wrath.

I seek the Light,
I search out the Way
the Fountain of Life
I follow each day!

Psalm 36:9

“For with thee is
the fountain of life:
in thy light shall
we see light.”

All My Soul Needs ~

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want nothing more
then the joy and glory
for me He has in store.

He satisfies my thirst,
my hunger He fills
my anxiety and fears
He calms and stills.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want not a thing
for my heart is set
on the peace He’ll bring.

He is my saving Light,
He is my High Rock
I’m so blessed to be
a part of His flock.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
there’s nothing I lack
my faith in Him is all . . .
He want’s me to give back!

“The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.”

To God Be The Glory ~

To God Be the Glory,
this is why I write . . .
to His honor
for His delight.

Sharing my needs,
up lifting yours
so together our hope
we can explore.

To God be the glory,
to Him be the praise
for knowing His Word
to following His ways.

Praying to God,
learning to be still
so we can understand
His most perfect will.

To God be the glory,
this is why I do write . . .
using the grace given me
to shine His saving light!

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
were written for our learning,
that we through patience
and comfort of the scriptures
might have hope.

We All Need A Shepherd~

we-all-need-a-shepherd-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every one is broken,
some how, some where
every one needs Jesus
to bear their care.

Every one has suffered,
some pain, some grief
every one needs Jesus
to bring them relief.

Every one has worries,
some great, some slight
every one needs Jesus
His love, His light.

Every one is weary,
some more, some less
every one needs Jesus
their lives to bless.

Every one needs Jesus,
every minute, every day
every one needs a Shepherd
to show, the way!

John 10:11

“I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd giveth
his life for the sheep.”

Once Blinded Eye ~

once-blinded-eye-chrsitian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Once blinded eyes,
they couldn’t see . . .
through the darkness
surrounding me.

But, since they’ve seen,
Jesus through His light
they now recognize evil
upon first sight.

Once blinded eyes,
didn’t see the wickedness
nor the penalty
for their recklessness.

But, since they’ve set,
their gaze on above
they can see the things
in the world not to love.

Once blinded eyes,
the dark couldn’t perceive
until in Jesus . . .
they came to believe!

“The Lord openeth the eyes

the Lord loveth the righteous:”

Thank You God ~

Thank You God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Thank you God,
for all my days
for Your Spirit
to whom my soul sways.

For the calming peace,
You’ve instilled in me
for Your loving kindness
that has set me free.

For guiding me,
to find the Truth and Life
so I may conquer
all my worldly strife.

For leading me,
to the everlasting Light
which helps me to walk
pleasingly in Your sight.

Thank you God,
for each new day
for giving me Your Word
to enlighten the Way!

Every Day is Father’s Day ~

EVERY DAY is Father's Day ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Dear heavenly Father,
I want to thank You so
for always being with me
wherever I may go.

For being my true lamp,
my life, way and light
for the tender mercy
You send me day or night.

For giving me refuge,
under Your mighty wings
for the stillness I have
in the storms life brings.

For being my Rock,
the anchor of my trust
for always being loving
gracious, kind and just.

Dear heavenly Father,
every day is Father’s day . . .
and I’m so very thankful
for all You send my way!

Walking in The Light ~

Walking in the Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When we walk in the light,
we will recognize sin
we will see the darkness
that still creeps within.

We will see the rebellion,
of our old wicked ways
we will smell the stench
of our own spiritual decay.

When we walk in the light,
we will see all the wrong
we will know to this world
we no longer belong.

We will see our greediness,
our lusts for former things
we’ll know not to fall again
into the traps they bring.

When we walk in the light,
from temptation we will flee
for the light shines brighter
then the darkness we see!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7

“But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood of
Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.”

I Lift Up My Soul ~

Guide Me in Truth used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook
Lord, each new day I lift,
my soul up to You . . .
my heart searches in Your Word
till Your light comes into view.

I pray for Your guidance,
a willingness to be led
a heart relationship I want
not one just in my head.

I know I am teachable,
there’s so much I can learn
even though I’m in mid-life
to Your ways I still yearn.

Lord, my faith is in Your hand,
I put my trust in all You do
I lift up my soul in praise . . .
for the grace I found in You!

Psalm 25:5

“Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
for thou art the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day.”

My Friends Think I’m Peculiar

My Friends Think I'm Peculiar ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My friends think I’m peculiar,
some say I am a little odd
most think that I’m just weird
because I still trust in God.

They too were once believers,
but now they walk in the dark
the light once shinning in them
has become cold and stark.

They no longer hunger,
or thirst for the righteous way
they no longer see the truth
in what the Bible has to say.

For most they have given up,
the narrow way was too hard
and with every bump and jolt
their faith in God was jarred.

Now their hearts are set upon,
the worldly things of the flesh
they tell me that my  beliefs
and their desires do not mesh.

My friends think I’m peculiar,
some say I am a little odd . . .
but I pray for them everyday
to turn back and trust in God.

1 Peter 2:9
King James Version

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal
priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people;
that ye should shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of darkness into his
marvellous light;”
