Let Your Light Shine ~

Let your Light shine,
let it glow, let it burst
so that more hearts
after Jesus will thirst.

Let your Light beam.
let it radiate, let it spread
so that more souls
to Jesus will be lead.

Let your Light sparkle,
let it gleam, let it glisten
so that more minds
about Jesus will listen.

Let your Light shimmer,
let it transmit, let it radiate
so more of the lost
to Jesus will migrate.

Let our Light ooze,
let it seep, let it exude
so that Lord, Jesus . . .
we can bring more to You!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

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

Be A Gospel Doer ~

Be a Gospel doer,
read your Bible and then act
don’t just be a Gospel hearer
you need to give something back.

You can lend a helping hand,
or give someone your ear
let everyone know you’ll be
a friend who is always near.

Pray for those who ask,
even more for those who don’t
plead for their salvation
because you know they won’t.

Look for the good in others,
most only see their weakness
tell them Jesus loves them
for their own uniqueness.

There’s so much you can do,
to help other people out
all you have to do is ask
why Jesus they even doubt.

If you don’t have the answers,
I know just where to look
for the Life, Truth and Way
are written in the Good Book!

If We’re to Shine 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!

When CHRISTmas Day is Over ~

when-christmas-day-is-over-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
and the tree is finally down
as the lights are returned
to where they were found.

As we settle back into,
our daily routines
the hope of CHRISTmas
isn’t over by any means.

For, the reality of the day,
you cannot pack away
nor return or store it
back into some attic bay.

CHRISTmas lives on,
in our hearts everyday
for it’s the only Gift . . .
we can give each day.

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
be sure to keep sharing . . .
the Truth, Life and Way
by being Light bearing!

When My Light Dims ~

When My Light Dims ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

When my light,
dims and flickers
before it starts
to lose its glimmer.

To my Bible,
I rush and go
so I may again
feel the glow.

When my light,
starts to fade
before it starts
to degrade.

To the Holy Spirit,
I turn and go
until His power
once again flows.

When My light,
is shinning bright
I know it’s when . . .
with God I’m right!

Missionary Eyes ~

Light Shine ~ CHRISTian poety by deborah ann

Lord, help me to see,
with missionary eyes
so I may observe . . .
other’s heartfelt cries.

Let me bring hope,
to someone today
by showing to them
the Life and the Way.

Let my inspire,
just one, if You will
how they can learn
to wait and be still.

Send someone to me,
who feels all alone
so I may show them
the way to the throne.

Give me a chance,
to help carry a load
so someone’s burden
I can help unload.

Lord, give to me,
missionary eyes
let me be Your light  . . .
to the heart that cries!

Shine ~

Shine ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann

Shine on me Lord Jesus,
shine on me Your grace
let the joy I found in You
radiant off my grateful face.

Shine on me Your  love,
Your mercies ever tender
shine on me Your goodness
till I glow in Your splendor.

Shine on me Lord Jesus,
shine on me Your faithfulness
let the love I have for You
beam of my thankfulness.

Shine on me Your glory,
all Your wonderfulness
shine on me Your brilliance
till I emit Your excellence!

Be the Light ~

Be The Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Your light can shine,
without saying a word
it can speak volumes
without being heard.

The light of your smile,
says I’ll brighten your day
the light of your touch
says I’ll help show the way.

The light of your tears,
says you have compassion
the light in your heart
says I’ll share God’s passion.

The light in your eyes,
says Jesus loves you
the light touch of your hand
says I’ll be with you too.

The light of your mind,
says I’ll show you mercy
the light in your look
says to God were all worthy.

You don’t have to say,
not a word of any kind
just let Jesus’ light shine
and His love others will find.

Today ~

Lord, today you showed me,
just how much you care
with the answer
to my prayer.

You reached down,
gently touched my soul
healed this broken vessel
once again made me whole.

Lord, today you reminded me,
of just how good You are
You are my ever bright
and shinning Morning Star.

All darkness is gone,
now Your light does shine
where fear once was
now Your peace is mine.

Lord, today you reminded me,
of Your perfect love
how to keep my eyes
focused on things above.

To see the many things,
You always do for me
You are the living example
of how I need always be!
