Forget Not ~

Forget Not ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Forget not the Lord,
nor His many benefits
forget not His ways
nor to them to submit.

Forget not to trust,
Him for all things
forget not to reap
the joy He brings.

Forget not to live,
in His presence
forget not to be
meek and pleasant.

Forget not the hope,
nor His perfect will
forget not to wait
remember to be still.

Forget not the mercy,
in all of its wonder
forget not His love
in all of its splendor.

Forget not the Lord,
His graces obtain
forget not the time
He’ll come again!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 78:7

“That they might set their hope in God,
and not forget the works of God, but
keep his commandments:”

Abundant Grace ~

Abundant Graces ~ CHRISTian poetry by debora ann ~ Photo  Doorpost Verses

My faith has taken me,
to joyous places up high
as well as low valley’s
barren, arid and dry.

It’s taken me through,
times good and bad
my faith’s kept me joyful
even when I am sad.

My faith has been strong.
though I’ve been weak
it has made me humble
effectual and meek.

It’s seen me through,
all kinds of turbulence
my faith’s carried me
over each recurrence.

My faith has taken me,
to many different places
so that I would find . . .
abundant are His graces!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:10

“But by the grace of God I am what I am:
and his grace which was bestowed upon me
was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly
than they all: yet not I,
but the grace of God which was with me.”

The Grace to Be Meek ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ it-is-not-the-strength-of-your-faith used with permission IBible Verses

When you’re feeling faint,
when you’re feeling weary
when your burdens are . . .
too much for you to carry.

That’s when you need to go,
to the Lord for His power
He will supply you with . . .
fresh energy for each hour.

When you’re feeling frail,
when you’re feeling defeated
when life has left you . . .
feeling spiritually depleted.

That’s when you need to go,
to the Lord in earnest prayer
His strength you will find . . .
is waiting for you there.

When you need to feel strong,
instead of feeling weak
that’s when you need . . .
God’s grace to make you meek!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:29

“He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might
 he increaseth strength.”

If Only ~

be-humble ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

If we’re to have a bright future,
we must willingly follow God’s plans
if we’re going to walk in faith
we must put our trust in His hands.

If we’re not to be weary,
we must give God our distress
if we’re to find rest for our souls
we must be willing to onward press.

If we’re to have strength and power,
we must first admit we are weak
if we’re to soar like eagles
we must learn to be humble and meek.

If we’re trying to find real peace,
we mustn’t give in to fear or doubt
if we’re wanting to see God’s light
we must shut all the darkness out.

If we’re to have true victory,
we must run the race so we can win
if we’re to receive our reward
we must repent from our every sin!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:14

“I press toward the mark for the prize
of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Without Jesus ~

Without Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus died for you,
and He died for me
He died for the whole world
so our need for Him, we’d see.

He died for the miserable,
the hardened, the hopeless
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are helpless.

He died for the cruel,
the wicked, the guilty
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are filthy.

He died for the sorrowful,
the poor, the meek
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are weak.

He died for the troubled,
the worried, the weary
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are needy.

Jesus died for the lost,
and He died for the unsaved
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are depraved!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:8
King James Version

“But God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.

Love One Another ~

Love One Another ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

You know how much . . .
My Father loves you
I have shown the world
the same love too.

Now that I’m gone,
to be with my Father
you must continue
to love one another.

When you’re offended,
turn the other cheek
remember My love
is humble and meek.

When you’ve been hurt,
and all you feel is pain
do not think to retaliate
let forgiveness be your aim.

When others disappoint,
give them encouragement
for My love is full of grace
free from punishment.

When those you know,
turn their back on you
remember this one thing
My love remains true.

You know how much . . .
My Father and I love you
now you must go
and show the world it too!

~~~~~~~

John 15:9
King James Version

“As the Father hath loved me,
so have I loved you:
continue ye in my love.”

A Humble Heart ~

Blessed are The Meek used with permission IBible Verses

Jesus, give me a humble heart,
teach me to have a meek attitude
take from me, my selfish pride
fill my soul with eternal gratitude.

Disrobe me of my self-importance,
strip my conceit and arrogance
remove the smugness on my face
rip away any self-imposed relevance.

Cloth me in Your righteousness,
wrap me in Your truth and love
cover me with the Holy Spirit
bind me to Your Father up above.

Jesus, give me a holy humbleness,
dispose of any remaining selfish debris
take from me my self-centerness
let humility bend my prideful knee!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:6
King James Version

says: ” God resists the proud, But
gives grace to the humble.”

Take My Pride, Lord ~

Life A Life Jesus will be Proud of used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, take away the pride,
in the things I say and do
let me take no pleasure
in just my point of view.

Teach me to be humble,
instead of being right
so I can stand worthy
pleasing in Your sight.

Help me to be meek,
less of myself aware
let not my ego cause
other people to despair.

Let me be grateful,
modest in my needs
may I not be haughty
in my acts and deeds.

Lord, take away my pride,
let me make You proud
may it be Your gentle Spirit
that stands out in a crowd!

Humble Me ~

Live to Know God used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, humble me in Your mercy,
let fairness be my guide
for I know without Your justice
from my sins I cannot  hide.

Give to me Your understanding,
let Your truth direct my day
for I know without Your guidance
I would surely lose my way.

Show me Your compassion,
help me  to know Your will
for I know without Your goodness
I could never possess the skill.

Test my faith with consideration,
let Your wisdom speak out to me
for I know without Your grace
Your righteousness I couldn’t see.

Teach me about forgiveness,
let Your kindness in me thrive
for I know without Your passion
Your Spirit in me wouldn’t be alive.

Lord, humble me in Your mercy,
let Your love dwell deep within
for I know You died for me
so I wouldn’t perish in my sin.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:8-9
King James Version

Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
The humble He guides in justice,
And the humble He teaches His way.”

Blessed are The Meek ~

Blessed Are by Joe Cacazos free photo #5225

Blessed are those who are humble,
those who are submissive and meek
those who give themselves to God
who’s will they obediently seek.

Blessed are those who are gentle,
those who are patient and tolerant
those who are rarely provoked
who are restrained and moderate.

Blessed are those who are tranquil,
those who are calm and serene
those who are unruffled and relaxed
who God’s peace they quietly glean.

Blessed are those who are gracious,
those who are forgiving and kind
those who are polite and respectful
who love with their whole heart and mind.

Blessed are those who are patient,
those who don’t grumble or complain
those who accept what God offers
who endure the good with the pain.

Blessed are those who are humble,
those who live under God’s control
the earth is theirs to inherit . . .
for they love Jesus with all of their  soul!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:5
King James Version

“Blessed are the meek:
for they shall

inherit the earth.”

In Jesus ~

names-of-jesus-free photo

In Jesus, the poor become rich,
the weak are now the strong
the heavy-heart now rejoices
and sing salvation’s song.

The grieving finds true comfort,
the bound are finally set free
In Jesus, all know that peace
will last throughout eternity.

In Jesus, the hungry are satisfied,
the thirsty now are quenched
the wandering soul is no longer
in their worldly sins entrenched.

The tempted finds the holy way,
the laden down finds perfect rest
in Jesus, the weary and oppressed
finds refreshment and are blessed.

In Jesus, the rich are the poor,
the strong were once the weak
the rejoicer’s are the ones . . .
who know salvation is for the meek!

“For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people:
he will beautify the meek with salvation.”

What is Faith ~

Faith is what we hope in,
it’s what we cannot see
it’s when we trust Jesus
to calm the storms at sea.

It’s a touch of His hem,
it’s knowing He will heal
it’s confident and it’s sure
God promises He’ll fulfill.

It’s firm and unquestioning,
it’s strong and never weak
it’s alive and it dwells
in the hearts that are meek.

It’s believing that God can,
it’s knowing that He will
it’s trusting in His timing
that keeps the heart still.

It’s willing to die to self,
it’s believing in God’s Word
it’s willing to pay the price
for the truth that its heard.

Faith is what we hope in,
it’s beyond what the eye sees
it’s the trust we have in Jesus
and it takes us to our knees.

~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:1
King James Version

“Therefore, being justified by faith,
we have
peace with God
through our Lord Jesus 
Christ”
