Beyond The Cross ~

Beyond the cross,
there’s a glorious view
for in Jesus’ death . . .
all things are made new.

New beginnings,
fresh clean starts
eternal hope
to fill our hearts.

Beyond the cross,
there is new life
the end to sin
and worldly strife.

No more battles,
no more struggles
no more satan
causing troubles.

Beyond the cross,
there are no fears
no death, no pain
and no more tears.

Despair will end,
suffering will cease
there will only be
everlasting peace.

Beyond the cross,
hope springs anew
all because Jesus . . .
died for me and you!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

“Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;

who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,

despising the shame,
and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.”

Oh, What A Sight ~

Oh, what a vision,
oh, what a sight
to have seen
that star’s light.

Perched in the sky,
shining above
spotlighting the gift
of God’s perfect love.

Oh, what a vision,
oh, what a glimpse
to have seen
salvation’s eclipse.

A world full of darkness,
finally sees the Light
oh, what utter joy . . .
to have seen the delight.

Oh, what a vision,
oh, what a sight
to have witnessed
that star in flight!

~~~~~~

Matthew 2:10

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

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk
in darkness, but shall have
the light of life.

God’s Beloved Son ~

God has a gift for you,
He sent it long ago
for on you His grace
He wanted to bestow.

He planned carefully,
just what He should get
and so His Beloved Son
He was willing to forfeit.

So He sent from heaven,
a Lamb and a King
so that peace and hope
to you He could bring.

He knew that you needed,
a Savior for your soul
someone who could heal
and make your heart whole.

God has a gift for you,
I pray you will open it
for inside you will find
the essence of His Spirit!

for his unspeakable gift.”

Jesus The True Light ~

May this Christmas,
you find the one True Light
so that Jesus
can give you a new sight.

May you discover,
your own personal Savior
by accepting the gift
of God’s ultimate favor.

May this Christmas,
you find the True Way
and the truth behind
Jesus’ birth this day.

May you discover,
God’s glorious love
delivered to you
from up above.

May this Christmas,
you open your heart
so God into it . . .
grace can impart!

John 1:9-10

which lighteth every man
that cometh into the world.

and the world knew him not.”

Faith Like Jesus ~

I want to be like Jesus,
in every single way
I want His life to be
part of me every day.

I want to be full of light,
not dull and lifeless
I want the trust Jesus had
to be my daily focus.

I want to be humble,
not fearful and weak
I want Jesus’ strength
each day of the week.

I want to be joyful,
not bitter and resentful
I want Jesus’ life in mine
day-by-day to resemble.

I want to beat the desert heat,
to calm the storms at sea
I want the faith Jesus had
day-to-day inside of me!

Romans 3:22

“Even the righteousness of God
which is by faith of Jesus Christ
unto all and upon all them

Good Morning Quote ~06.13.18~


The Love of The World ~

The love of the world,
is but foolishness . . .
all it has to offer
is truly meaningless.

It’s full of vanities,
prideful, greedy lust
one day all it offers
will tarnish and rust.

The love of the world,
is empty, grim and grave
once you desire of it
to it you’ll be a slave.

It teaming with sin,
too godless to mention
it’s where satan reigns
with all his henchman.

The love of the word,
is foolishness for sure
and the Light of Jesus . . .
is it’s only saving cure!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

“Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life,
is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.”

Oh, What A Vision ~

Oh what a vision,
oh, what a sight
now that I see
all in God’s light.

Oh, what a promise,
oh, what a story
I can hardly imagine
God in all His glory.

Oh, what a future,
oh, what a plan
now that my life
is in God’s hand.

Oh, what an approach,
oh, what a strategy
I can hardly imagine
Jesus’ full majesty.

Oh, what a vision,
oh, how I can’t wait
to enter through . . .
that narrow gate!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 2:9

“But as it is written,
Eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard,
neither have entered
into the heart of man,
the things which God
hath prepared for them
that love him.”

A Broken Spirit ~

A broken spirit,
sin’s conviction
a life now rid
of its infliction.

A contrite heart,
pride’s rejection
a life now free
of its direction.

A humble mind,
greed’s ejection
a life now rid
of its reflection.

A soul repentant,
shames detection
a life now purged
of its condition.

A broken spirit,
humble and contrite
is a life no longer . . .
without His light!

~~~~~~

Psalm 51:17

“The sacrifices of God
are a broken spirit:
a broken and a contrite heart,
O God, thou wilt not despise.”

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!

~~~~~~

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

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.”

May God Smile On You Today ~

 

May the Lord today,
shine His face on you
with rays of peace
upon the morning new.

May He bless you,
with joy and gladness
so today you can find
in Him, your happiness.

May the Lord today,
put hope in your heart
may He restore your faith
upon the new day start.

May He bless you,
with His grace and favor
so all of His goodness
you will come to savor.

May the Lord today,
smile down on you
with rays of His love
upon your heart anew!

God’s Saving Light ~

If I could gather,
all the rays of God’s light
every blinded eyes . . .
would receive 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 the power of 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

in the face of Jesus Christ.”

In The Lord’s House ~

In the my Father’s house,

Let’s Make 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;

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!

~~~~~~~

“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!

~~~~~~

“And we know that all things
work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are

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.

Sticky Note From God 02.13.16

STICKY NOTE FROM  GOD ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ 02.13.16 ~


A Verse A Day ~

Your Word My Light

A Verse a day,
will keep the devil away
a Word or two
will help restore and renew.

A Scripture thought,
will help when distraught
a Bible study plan
will lead and command.

A Verse a day,
will keep fear at bay
a Word or two
will power you through.

A Scripture learned,
will help when concerned
a Bible nearby
will keep Jesus close by.

A Verse a day,
is a daily must . . .
for it will direct you
in God, to always trust!

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.
