I Know God’s Name ~

I know God’s name
tis why I truly believe
by no other one
can salvation I receive.

For He is my Savior,
my Lord and my King
soon one day His peace
He is going to bring

I know God’s frame,
tis why I do so trust
for it is always good
righteous and just.

For He is my tower,
strong, high and mighty
tis why I don’t take . . .
things He says lightly.

I know God’s name,
it’s one like no other
tis why at its mention
in holy awe, I shudder!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 18:10

The name of the Lord
is a strong tower: the
righteous runneth
into it, and is safe.

Psalm 9:10

And they that know thy
name will put their trust
in thee: for thou, Lord,
hast not forsaken them
that seek thee.

I’m Completely Convinced ~

I am convinced I belong to God,
that nothing can separate us
I am sure and I am confident . . .
and so in Him I put all my trust.

Storms may toss and blow my way,
but I will not be swept out to sea
for I am sure and I am confident . . .
through each one God is with me.

There’s nothing man can say,
to break God’s and my alliance
I am sure and I am confident . . .
for on Him I put my full reliance.

The earth may shake and quiver,
yet my faith in God will stand
for I am sure and I am confident . . .
nothing can snatch me out of His hand.

I am convinced I belong to God,
my victory is in Christ alone
I am sure and I am confident . . .
one day He will take me home!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:38-39


“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor
life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come, Nor
height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of
God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Carry Me Lord ~

Lord, carry me upon Your grace,
until the day I see Your face . . .
and when I’m down and feeling low
let Your joy in me freely flow.

When I need a hand to hold,
give me Yours so I’ll be bold
and when I need a loving friend
be mine until the very end.

Lord, lift my spirits in Your love,
send Your mercies to me from above
and when I need a shoulder to cry on
let it be Your name that I call upon.

When I’m hurting and I’m in pain,
let Your strength be my restrain
and when it gets too much for me
help me to put my trust in Thee.

Lord, carry me upon Your grace,
so I may soar above all things
and if air You see me losing . . .
keep Your wings for me still moving!

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!

Children of God ~

Family free photo #11320

The children of God,
come from everywhere
you can recognize them . . .
by what they wear.

For, they are clothed,
in God righteousness
in Jesus they put on
faith and truthfulness.

The children of God,
have much in common
their trust in the Lord
is sober and solemn.

For, they are forgiven,
justified for every sin
they know Jesus’ Spirit
lives and dwells within.

The children of God,
come from every race
you can recognize them . . .
by the joy on their face!

~~~~~~~

Galatians 3:26-28

“For ye are all the children of God
by faith in Christ Jesus.

For as many of you as have been
baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

There is neither Jew nor Greek,
there is neither bond nor free,
here is neither male nor female:
for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

The True Light ~

The True Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
The true light of the season,
isn’t wrapped around our trees
the true light of the season
isn’t hanging from our eaves.

The true light of the season,
isn’t put up, only once a year
the true light of the season
isn’t part of our Christmas gear.

The true light of the season,
never burns out or blows a fuse
the true light of the season
isn’t part of the holiday ruse.

The true light of the season,
cannot be put away or stored
for, the true light of the season
is the Babe, the Christ, our Lord.

Jesus, is the world’s light,
all darkness, He came to diffuse
and love, hope, peace and joy
in your life He wants to infuse!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

It’s All About Jesus ~

givemejesus CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s not about the disease,
or the sickness in your soul
it’s about the Healer . . .
making your heart whole.

It’s not about the problem,
or the crisis you are in
it’s about the Deliverer . . .
forgivingyour every sin.

It’s not about the burden,
or the weight of the load
it’s about the Comforter . . .
helping you down the road.

It not about the worries,
or the fears in your head
it’s about the Lord . . .
and being Holy Spirit led.

It’s not about the troubles,
or the difficulties that impede
it’s about the Savior . . .
knowing your every need.

It’s not about the storm,
or the seas that are raging
it’s about the Christ . . .
who knows you need saving.

It’s not about the trials,
or the struggles in this life
it’s all about Jesus . . .
who came to bear your strife!

One Day ~

thy_kingdom_come

One day every knee shall bow,
before Jesus, the King of Kings
one day every person will face
the judgment that He brings.

One day every mouth will confess,
Jesus is the Lord over every nation
one day God will get His due glory
for being the Author of all creation.

One day those who have loved Him,
will offer Him songs of praise
one day those who have refused Him
will account for their evil ways.

One day every person in the world,
will bow down and confess
Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior
every tongue, His name will profess.

One day Jesus will come again,
to rule and set up His Kingdom
one day the world will know peace
and the meaning of true freedom!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:10-11
King James Version

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
of things in heaven, and things in earth,
and things under the earth; And that every tongue
should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”

My Confidence ~ My Hope

hope-is-in-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My confidence is in the Lord,
for I know He cares for me
I place my hope in Him
not in the things, I can see.

He protects and shelters me,
in His goodness with His grace
with Him any problem
I’m able to confidently face.

I know I can count on Him,
for wisdom and for some rest
for He knows what I need
has for me only the best.

I am so very happy,
for in the Lord I have peace
His compassion never fails me
my hope in Him shall not cease!

the God of Jacob for his help,

Just Passing Through ~

Heaven by  Jon Kenney free photo #5361

I am but a stranger,
to the world, I am freak
they treat me unjustly
call me lame and weak.

They think I am weird,
they laugh at me and say
“She thinks that to God
there is only one way.”

They tell me that Jesus,
was just a carpenter
a nice guy who once lived
to them, He’s a foreigner.

But Jesus is my Lord,
to God He is the only way
though they laugh and scoff
whenever, this I say.

They believe many roads,
will lead them to heaven
and so to God’s Word
their ears are deafened.

I am but a stranger,
an outsider passing through
a homeless refugee . . .
keeping Jesus in my view!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:13
King James Version

“These all died in faith,
not having received the promises,

but having seen them afar off,
and were persuaded of them,
and embraced them,
and confessed that they were strangers
and pilgrims on the earth.

My Everything ~

My Everthing CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus ~ You’re my everything,
You are my all in all
there is such peace
when on Your name I call.

You fill me with hope,
You give my life purpose
may all You’re doing in me
continue to rise to the surface.

You’re my joy and happiness,
You are always around
in Your grace and mercy
I have learned to abound.

You are my helper,
You bring me great comfort
trusting in You . . .
takes of me, so little effort.

Jesus ~ You’re my everything,
You’re my beginning and end
You are my Lord, my Savior
my eternal Friend.

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:28

Grace Sufficient ~

grace-sufficent-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

My grace is sufficient,
I have all you’ll ever need
when your deficiencies
to Me, you willingly cede.

My strength is in you,
just give me your flaws
I’ll take you by the hand
lead you with My laws.

My power is endless,
I can do so many things
if your imperfections
to Me, you readily bring.

I delight in weakness,
find joy in your fragility
I love when you show Me
your sincere humility.

I’ll make you perfect,
just trust and rest in Me
for sufficient is My grace
I have waiting for thee!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:

for my strength
is made perfect in weakness.

Most gladly therefore will I
rather glory in my infirmities,

that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.”

Teach The Little Children ~

Teach The Little Children ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Teach the little children,
while they are still young
to give thanks to the Lord
in every song that is sung.

Teach them to pray,
for the Holy Spirit’s filling
tell them that it is more
than just a onetime feeling.

Teach them to read and study,
how God would have them go
let them know in His Word
the way He will always show.

Teach them to understand,
for them, God has a plan
let them know it’s not the same
as the world has for man.

Teach them to respect,
themselves and others too
remind them God is looking
at what they say and do.

Teach them to set their sights,
on their heavenly treasures
not the ones here on earth
reeking of worldly pleasures.

Teach them to love God,
with all their heart and soul
let them know Jesus died
so they’d be complete and whole.

Teach them not just on Sundays,
but each and everyday . . .
just how narrow is the gate
so their tender hearts won’t stray.

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 34:11
King James Version

“Come, ye children, hearken unto me:
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.”

My Comforter ~

My Comforter

I have me a companion,
a Friend that is constant
someone who will come
to my aid in an instant.

Someone I can lean on,
when I need to be soothed
someone I can trust
when I need the truth.

Someone who will cry,
right along with me
someone who understands
my deepest, soulful need.

Someone who is strong,
whenever I am weak
someone who brings joy
whenever I feel bleak.

Jesus gave to me,
His Spirit as my Helper
and I always run to Him
whenever I need shelter!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 14:16
King James Version

“And I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another Comforter,
that he may abide with you for ever;”

What if There Was No CHRISTmas ~

Christmas Chaos byJeff Boriss free photo #2242

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no Babe lying in the manger
what if the Savior wasn’t born
to heal the world’s hurt and anger?

There would be no Good Friday,
no Palm Sunday or Resurrection Day
there would be no souls to show
the Truth, the Light or the Way.

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no freedom from our strife
no hope or any anticipation
of having a blissful eternal life?

There would be no everlasting joy,
no chance of a never-ending love
there would be no glorious meeting
with our Savior one day above.

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no trust, no faith, no peace
no virgin birth, no Immanuel
so our pain and tears would cease?

There would be no Prince of Life,
no eternal Lord and King
there would be no motive
for the CHRISTmas songs we sing.

What if Jesus wasn’t born,
on CHRISTmas Day
what then would be the reason
to even celebrate today?

~~~~~~

Isaiah 7:14
King James Version

“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;
Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son,
and shall call his name Immanuel.”

A Free Gift ~

You Can't Earn Your Way to Heaven used with permission IBible Verses

There is a CHRISTmas gift,
that needs not be wrapped
a present that is free . . .
won’t leave you strapped.

You can’t find it at the mall,
nor see it on TV
there’s no place on-line
where this gift you’ll see.

It’s available all year through,
not just at CHRISTmas time
and the best thing about it
it won’t cost you a dime.

It’s a gift undeserving,
you could never earn it
but when you try it on
it will be the perfect fit.

If you’d like this gift,
ask Jesus into your life
confess to Him your sins
put an end to your strife.

For God has given to you,
the gift of eternal grace
in our Lord and Savior
and it’s yours to embrace!

It’s all about you Lord,

it’s all about that day
my sins You erased.

It’s all about Your life,
the Truth and the Way
it’s all about surrendering
to You each new day.

It’s all about Your strength,
the might and the power
it’s all about trusting
You every single hour.

It’s all about Your mercy,
the pity and the compassion
it’s all about making
Your heart my passion.

It’s all about you Lord,
not about me . . .
it’s all about Your blood
that I must die to me!

In You Lord ~

In You Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m learning to be content,
in whatever comes my way
because my Lord ~ my Savior
I trust You more every day.

Though my problems mount,
escalate and swell
it’s in You my Lord
I choose to wait and dwell.

As the enemy starts to roar,
rumbling for my defeat
it’s in You my Lord
I find my true retreat.

When my fears begin to rise,
tossing me all around.
it’s in You my Lord
I stand on solid ground.

While the storm rages,
reaching its height and peak
it is You ~ my Lord
my soul will always seek!
