Good Morning Quote ~03.18.19~


If We’re to Shine 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.”

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!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 9:15

“Thanks be unto God
for his unspeakable gift.”

Give Me The Wisdom ~

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
to know what to say
so others I may guide
to the righteous way.

Help me to redeem,
the time allotted me
to help blinded eyes
Your saving light to see.

Oh, Lord keep me seasoned,
let me not lose my flavor
so I may lead others
to also find their Savior.

Help me to choose,
the words that will bring
answers to their doubt
You created everything.

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
so others I can inform
how their hearts and minds
You can change and transform!

~~~~~~

Colossians 4:5-6

” Walk in wisdom
toward them
that are without,
redeeming the time.

Let your speech be
always with grace,
seasoned with salt,
that ye may know
how ye ought to answer
every man.”

Sticky Note From God 03.10.17


Designed to Shine ~

designed-to-shine-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Designed to shine,
to be the Light
made to make
the world bright.

Made to illuminate,
Jesus’ reflection
designed to be
hope’s projection.

Designed to filter,
light from above
made to expose
to all God’s love

Made to transmit,
God’s mercy and favor
designed to broadcast
the way to the Savior.

Designed to reveal,
dark evil places
made to reveal
God’s saving graces.

Made to shine,
just like the sun
designed to radiate . . .
the Light of God’s Son!

Matthew 5:14

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

Perfect Instructions ~

Perfect Instructions ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s Word teaches me,
with perfect instructions
it leads me away . . .
from evil destructions.

His Word is my light,
so in the darkness I can see
the sinfulness and wickedness
everyday surrounding me.

God’s Word is the truth,
there are no if’s or but’s
I know to follow it . . .
there can be no short cuts.

His Word is His promise,
of things yet to be
it shows me how faith
is more than what I see.

God’s Word teaches me,
the right way to go
it holds everything . . .
I’ll ever need to know.

I know I need to hear,
His Word everyday
but unless I am a doer
I’m bound to go astray!

~~~~~~~~~

James 1:22

“But be ye doers of the word,
and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.”

Missionary Eyes ~

Light Shine ~ CHRISTian poety by deborah ann

Lord, help me to see,
with missionary eyes
so I may observe . . .
other’s heartfelt cries.

Let me bring hope,
to someone today
by showing to them
the Life and the Way.

Let my inspire,
just one, if You will
how they can learn
to wait and be still.

Send someone to me,
who feels all alone
so I may show them
the way to the throne.

Give me a chance,
to help carry a load
so someone’s burden
I can help unload.

Lord, give to me,
missionary eyes
let me be Your light  . . .
to the heart that cries!

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,

Friend of the World ~

world-changers ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Into the world God sends us,
to be the light unto the way
but, sometimes to its likes
it’s so easy to be swayed.

It can be so very hard,
to walk the narrow path
for, we know those not on it
will scoff at us and laugh.

So many temptations,
they dangle before our eyes
some of them look so good
we can’t see past Satan’s lies.

They’ll say it’s all harmless,
everyone else is doing it . . .
but we know deep in our hearts
they are not a Godly fit.

Lord, into the world You send us,
but not to be its friend . . .
for, we know on the wide way
hell, is just around the bend!

~~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:4
King James Version

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses,
know ye not that the friendship of the world
is enmity with God? whosoever therefore
will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ Sticky Note To God ~ 03.21.15 ~


No Other Name ~

names-of-jesus-free photo

No other name,
no other one
only Jesus finished . . .
what God had begun.

No other person,
no other being
only Jesus delivers . . .
salvation, eternally freeing.

No other god,
no other Savior
only Jesus has . . .
God’s mercy and favor.

No other way,
no other life
only denying Jesus . . .
will bring eternal strife.

No other truth,
no other plan
only Jesus brings . . .
redemption for all of man!

~~~~~~~~

John 14:6

” Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Holy Might ~

Light of the World ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Verses

Lord, You’ve opened my eyes,
to the darkness of mankind
now let it be Your holy light
flooding my heart and mind.

Let me turn away from,
that which cause’s You offense
let me not be like those who
straddle compromise’s fence.

Let me be bold in the battle,
steadfast in my daily fight
let me be for You a soldier
full of Your holy might.

Though mankind may scoff,
and turn away from me
let it be Your love . . .
mercy and grace they see!

My Light Source ~

your-word-is-a-lamp-for-my-feet ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used iwth permission IBible Verses

A light unto my path,
a perfect day I’ll see
for Jesus is the light beam
shining down on me.

A lamp unto my feet,
His ways I’ll always see
for Jesus is the glow
beaming out of me.

A candle in my darkness,
a flicker of hope you’ll  see
for Jesus is the sparkle
twinkling all around me.

A lantern to my soul,
a glimmer for all to see
for Jesus is the shimmer
reflecting out of me.

A torch unto my heart,
a spark that I can see
for Jesus is the flame
burning deep inside of me.

I’m Still Listening ~

Listen to Advise used withpermission Doorpost Verses on facebook

I’m still listening Lord,
my ears are ever more inclined
to Your instructions
that for me, You’ve designed.

I’m still trainable,
Your wisdom I will always need
give me more of Your advice
and  to Your Word I will heed.

I know it takes time,
for Your knowledge to set in
every day I am comprehending
where awareness truly begins.

Help me to keep learning Lord,
even though I’m getting old
give me more of Your wisdom
so Your full glory I can behold!

My Day Star ~

Space by SadMonkey Design free photo #2486

My Day Star arises,
with the morning light
He shines in dark places
all through the night.

When the dawn breaks,
He gets up with me
and all of His splendor
my eyes, can’t wait to see.

He enlightens my soul,
with His glory and grace
and His love I can feel
bringing joy to my face.

His Spirit rests on me,
in my soul, He quakes
when I read His Word
my heart to Him shapes.

I seek Him each morn,
His wisdom He bestows
the Light of the world
in my life, forever glows.

My Day Star arises,
with me each new day
He shines in dark places
as I go along my way!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 1:19
King James Version

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
whereunto ye do well that ye take heed,
 as unto a light that shineth in a dark place,
 until the day dawn, and the day star
arise in your hearts:”

Be His Light ~

In a world full of darkness,
shine His light . . .
in these times of uncertainty
be His light.

In the lives of those lost,
be the light . . .
in the souls that are dying
be the light.

In the hearts that are hurting,
be the light . . .
in the minds that are unraveling
be the light.

In those who are unsure,
be the light . . .
in the one who is wandering
be the light.

In a world that is perverse,
shine His light
in an earth that is corrupt
be His Light!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:15
King James Version

” That ye may be blameless and harmless, the
sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a
crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye
shine as lights in the world;”
