The Light and Salt ~

If we’re to be the light,
where is our shine . . .
if we’re to expose evil
then where is our spine?

If we know with God,
all things are possible
then why aren’t we sharing
every sin is washable?

If we’re to be the salt,
then where is our grit . . .
if we’re to help save others
why are they still in the pit?

If we know Jesus,
is the Truth, Life and Way
then why are these words
so hard for us to say?

If we’re to be the light,
then let’s light up and glow
if we’re to be the salt . . .
then let us ~ let it flow!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:14

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

Matthew 5:13

Ye are the salt of the earth:
but if the salt have lost his
savour, wherewith shall it
be salted? it is thenceforth
good for nothing, but to be
cast out, and to be trodden
under foot of men.

I’ll Be That Light ~

This CHRISTmas,
I will be that light
my love for Jesus . . .
will shine ever bright.

I will be the one,
who’s hope will glow
my love for Jesus . . .
from my heart will flow.

This CHRISTmas,
my joy will beam
my love for Jesus . . .
off my soul will gleam.

I will be that person,
who’s faith will rise
my love for Jesus . . .
will illuminate my eyes.

This CHRISTmas,
my light will glisten
I’ll not be ashamed
saying I’m a CHRISTian!

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!

This Light of Mine ~

This Wee Light of Mine ~ CHRSITian poetry by deborah ann

In this world,
where darkness shines
it’s so hard to see
this wee light of mine.

It seems so dim,
when it is compared
to all the evilness
that is out there.

In this world,
where darkness shines
it seems to engulf
this teeny light of mine.

It appears so faint,
against sin’s glimmer
next to the wickedness
it looks like a flicker.

But, for You Lord,
I’ll continue to shine
for nothing can douse
this light of mine!

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!
