God’s Saving Light ~

If I could gather,
all the rays of God’s light
I know now blinded eyes
would receive a new sight.

For within each beam,
the blinded eye would see
how the grace of Jesus
came to set them free.

If I could reap,
every ounce of God’s light
everyone would be full
of His power and His might.

For within each burst,
His love would crystallize
and His mercy for them
they would personalize.

If I could gather,
each beam and every ray
I’d forever shine God’s glory
on the Truth and the Way!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:6

” For God, who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.”

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.”

In The Lord’s House ~

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to forever dwell
there is no way . . .
I’m willing to go to hell.

For, my sins I’ve confess,
repented and turned from
by grace through faith is how
I’ll enter His kingdom.

In Your house Lord,
is where I want to be
so, for the rest of my days
I’ll faithfully follow Thee.

For, the world is full darkness,
but, You have brought me Light
Your mercy and goodness
are now always in my sight.

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to live forever
oh, how I cannot wait . . .
for us to be together!

Making Room For Jesus ~

making-room-for-jesus-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every year for Christmas,
we prepare for our guests
making sure they only see
our homes at their best.

We scrub and we scour,
room by room we go
making sure every space
has a sparkling glow.

We remove the clutter,
tidy up all of the mess
we dust everything in hopes
to pass the white glove test.

But, what about our hearts,
for Jesus, are they prepared
or in the holiday madness
have they become ensnared?

So, this year let’s first check,
to see if we have room
in our hearts for Jesus
and if not, let’s take a broom.

Let’s sweep away the junk,
clear out a perfect space
so Jesus can fill it up
with His love and grace.

Then let’s open up our homes,
and invite our guests in . . .
and maybe what they see in us
they too, will want within!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:7

“And she brought forth
her firstborn son,
and wrapped him
in swaddling clothes
and laid him in a manger;
because there was
no room for them in the inn.”

Tunneling Through ~

Tunneling Through ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When up to your ears,
with problems and fear
before they swallow you up
ask God to draw you near.

Ask Him to give you,
the courage you need
so from fear’s sinkhole
you can be freed.

When life gets too hard,
to make your way though
before you start to panic
ask God what you should do.

He’ll give you the strength,
to burrow your way out
and keep you from getting
buried in fear and doubt.

When worry buries you,
up to your ears . . .
let Jesus help you tunnel
through all your fears!

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 13:6

“So that we may boldly say,
The Lord is my helper,
and I will not fear what
man shall do unto me.”

For Our Own Good ~

For Our GOod ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God is at work in us,
He knows what’s good
He knows whether
we’ll do as we should.

He is in control,
over all things right
He knows whether
we’ll follow His light.

For our own good,
God’s working in us
He knows whether
we’ll doubt or trust.

He has a purpose,
each day for our life
He knows whether
it’ll bring joy or strife.

God is at work in us,
for what’s good and right
and those who love Him
do so, with all their might!

~~~~~~

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things
work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are
the called according to his purpose.”

My Arrow Deflector ~

My Arrow Defector ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Lord is my shield,
my true protector
He is my only
arrow deflector.

He gives me courage,
to fight any attack
His is the confidence
that in myself, I lack.

He lifts my head up,
His glory holds me high
He is the only Helper
on whom I can rely.

He supports me,
He is my safeguard
He is my soul’s defender
my heart’s bodyguard.

The Lord is my shield,
my refuge, my guide
it’s His strength in me
that reflects from inside!

~~~~~~

Psalm 3:3-5

” But thou, O Lord,
art a shield for me;
my glory, and the
lifter up of mine head.

Rise Up ~

I Will Rise ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Whenever you fall,
you must rise up again
no matter the struggle
or the amount of pain.

Lest Satan our enemy,
will fight to keep you down
he will do anything . . .
to pin you, to the ground.

Whenever you tumble,
get right back on your feet
no matter the plunge
or you will suffer defeat.

For the devil our adversary,
likes to keep you in chains
he will jump at the chance
to hold you in his restrains.

Whenever you stumble,
when into darkness you fall
Jesus will light your way
if on His name you call!

~~~~~~~

Micah 7:7-9

” Therefore I will look unto the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation:
my God will hear me.

Rejoice not against me,
O mine enemy: when I fall,
I shall arise; when I sit in darkness,
the Lord shall be a light unto me.”

The Tablet of My Heart ~

Spend Time in The Bible Used with permission IBible VErses

 Upon the tablet of my heart,
the Word of God I etch
for I know without His grace
I’d be a miserable wretch.

His Word reveals to me,
Light in its purest form
it exposes all my sin
the wickedness I perform.

In God’s Word I can find,
the true meaning of life
how to avoid being filled
with anxiety and strife.

His Word imparts wisdom,
it gives me understanding
it helps me from being . . .
to this world conforming.

On the tablet of my heart,
into my soul, I’ve engraved
God’s Word, grace and mercy
to remind me why it is I’m saved.

” Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:

My Shepherd’s Voice ~

My Sheep used with perrmison Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Is that You ~ Lord,
is that You calling out to me
is that Your light Lord
that I’m beginning to see?

Is that Your voice,
I’m hearing in the shadows
is that Your staff
leading me to green meadows?

Is that You Lord,
is that You giving me direction
is that Your rod
providing me with protection?

Is that Your peace,
that I’m feeling all around
is that Your love
making my heart leap and bound?

Is that You ~ Lord,
is that my Shepherd’s voice I hear?
It must be You . . .
for I have me not, a single fear!

Lord, You promised to be,

Lord, give me a warm heart,
a spirit that is bright . . .
let me look at everything
through Your amazing light.

Let me see the sunshine,
even when there is rain
let me see the blue skies
even through my pain.

Let me be grateful,
when answers are delayed
let me be thankful
even when I am dismayed.

Let me see the morning dawn,
even when it’s cold and dark
let me see Your splendor
even when all is looking stark.

Lord, give me a warm heart,

let me see that in You . . .
there is only  light!

CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Stickt Note To  God ~


What Christmas Isn’t ~

Tis the season
to be jolly . . . .
but don’t get caught
in all the folly.

For, it’s not about,
jingle bells
or dashing off
to all the sales

It’s not about,
the office party
or if to Aunt Sally’s
we’ll be tardy.

It’s not about,
the food we buy
or if we’ll make
pecan or rhubarb pie.

It’s not about,
all the lights
or if Uncle Joe
will start a fight.

It’s not about,
Santa or his sleigh
or how much this year
he will weigh.

It’s not about,
the presents we get
or the gifts we buy
putting us into debt.

It’s about Jesus,
the virgin Babe born
so long ago
one early morn.

It’s about love,
shinning from afar
it’s about the promise
of Jacob’s Star.

It’s about His light,
His life, His way . . .
that ‘s why we celebrate
CHRISTmas day!

~~~~~~~~

“Therefore the Lord himself

Lord, I Looked for You Today ~

The Lord is Good ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission Doorpost Verses

Lord, I looked for you today
Daughter, I saw you . . .

From the time I woke up
Upon your arising . . .

In the early morning light
I was the sunrise that greeted you . . .

During the afternoon heat
I was the warmth of your day . . .

Through the chill of the night
I cooled down your evening . . .

Till the time I laid down
I was the peace that you felt . . .

But, you were nowhere to be found
But, you were always in My sight . . .

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
