God’s Forgiveness ~

God's Forgiveness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s forgiveness,
is limitless
His long-suffering
is timeless.

It is non-stopple,
it’s boundless
it is without borders
it’s endless.

God’s forgiveness,
is inexhaustible
His love for us
it’s incomprehensible.

It is vast,
it’s immeasurable
it is immense
it’s perpetual.

God’s forgiveness,
is everlasting
His patience is beyond
our understanding!

Luke 17:4

“And if he trespass against thee
seven times in a day, and seven times
in a day turn again to thee, saying,
I repent; thou shalt forgive him.”

Thanksgiving Dinner ~

Thanksgiving Dinner ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Every year at this same time,
we sit at our dining tables . . .
feasting upon what has become
Thanksgiving Day staples.

We gobble down the turkey,
mashed potatoes and candy yams
then we sit back and disclaim . . .
I can’t believe how full I am.

But, this year I am not serving,
the traditional Thanksgiving fare
instead a healthy fruit salad . . .
is all I’m planning to share.

I’m going take some gentleness,
stuff it full of God’s love
along side of it will be the peace
that comes only from above.

I’ll pile high on each plate,
some joy and some goodness
right next to them I will place
some faith and some meekness.

I’ll top it off with patience,
and for the piece of resistance
I’ll pray for those whom I serve. . .
to have a lot of temperance!

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
 joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance:
 against such there is no law.

Why Me Lord ~

Why Me Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Why me Lord  . . .
sometimes I must say
why did You bring
this problem my way?

Why did You want,
to bring me this pain
what from all of this
do You want me to gain?

Why me Lord . . .
I sometimes have to ask
why did you send me
such an impossible task?

Why did You make,
all this come about
is it to find patience
while I dig my way out?

Why me Lord . . .
I really want to know
is it perseverance
You want me to grow?

Is that why You’re trying,
my faith with these things
so I may discover the joy . . .
that being tested brings!

~~~~~~~

James 1:2-3

“Finally brethren, count it all joy
when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying
 of your faith worketh patience.”

Works of the Flesh ~

fruit used with permission IBible Vereses

Having a hard time,
loving one another
feeling shades of green
looking at your brother?

Not very patient,
with your friends or family
finding your spoken words
being said, more angrily?

Looking at the world,
through rose-colored glasses
thinking it’s not so bad
to follow the masses?

Wondering when real joy,
will pop back into your life
tired of all the problems
causing everyday strife?

Well, stop for a minute
and ask yourself this . . .
“Am I letting the Spirit lead
or do I constantly resist?”

For the fruit of the Spirit,
we can only produce . . .
when to the works of the flesh
we become a recluse!

let us also walk in the Spirit.”

Sticky Note to God 7.14.14 ~

Sticky Note To God 7.14.14


I Wonder!

Bear Much Fruit used with permission Doorpost Verse on facebook

Sometimes I have to wonder,
if God wears a big old frown
if He mumbles and grumbles
as He drives from town to town.

If He wakes up drained and tired,
if He complains throughout the day
if He gets perturbed and frustrated
when things don’t go His way.

I wonder if He gets angry,
if He gets just plain annoyed
if He is more than a little agitated
and He feels a joyless, hopeless void.

If He needs His own space,
if He wants to be left all alone
If He wishes no one would visit Him
or call Him on the phone.

I only wonder these things . . .
because as His child ~ I should be
an imitator of His love . . .
but that’s not what others always see!

Where’s the Fruit ~

Where's The Fruit ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If the fruit of the Spirit is love,
then where is it in the church?
I see so many believers there,
who leave other’s in the lurch.

If the fruit of the Spirit is joy,
then where is it in people’s life?
I see so many believers living,
in the misery of their strife.

If the fruit of the Spirit is peace,
then why is there so much conflict?
I see so many believers who gossip,
and on other’s their venom inflict.

If the fruit of the Spirit is longsuffering,
then where is the perseverance?
I see so many believers without any,
and are nothing but an interference.

If the fruit of the Spirit is gentleness,
then where are those who are kind?
I see so many believers who only care,
about their own peace of mind.

If the fruit of the Spirit is goodness,
then where is the generosity?
I see so many believers who don’t know,
the meaning of true Christianity.

If the fruit of the Spirit is faith,
then why do we act like we have none?
I see so many believers who doubt,
all the things that God has done.

If the fruit of the Spirit is meekness,
then where is all the humbleness?
I see so many believers who aren’t living
with a heart of submissiveness.

If the fruit of the Spirit is temperance,
then why are so many out of control?
I see so many believers who can’t see,
they’re broken and need to be whole.

If the fruit of the Spirit is of God,
why aren’t believers more sublime?
The last time I looked in the Bible,
to reap these fruits  is no big crime!

A Cup of Kindness ~

Offer a cup of kindness,
to someone hurting today
offer them a sip of grace
tell them things will be okay.

Offer a cup of compassion,
to someone who needs a lift
offer them a sip of love
share with them your gift.

Offer a cup of gentleness,
to someone who is down
offer them a sip of mercy
it will take away their frown.

Offer a cup of helpfulness,
to someone who lives alone
offer them a sip of hope
show them your eternal home

Offer a cup of forgiveness,
to those who have hurt you
offer them a sip of peace
you’ll please God if you do.

Offer a cup of kindness,
to someone you meet today
offer them a sip of joy
it’s yours to give away!
