Thankful And Grateful ~

There’s always a reason,
for us to be thankful . . .
there’s always a chance
to show we are grateful.

But, so often we are not,
appreciative for all things
especially when hardships
a brand new day brings.

It’s easier to complain,
to criticize and grumble
to shake our heads in disbelief
then to be meek and humble.

For, when things don’t go our way,
we blame God and we curse
not realizing our lack of trust
only makes our problems worse.

There are plenty of reasons,
for us to be grateful . . .
but, first we need to learn
in everything to be thankful!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in
Christ Jesus concerning you.

Colossians 3:12


God’s Cup Is Brimming ~

God’s cup is brimming,
with His mercies and grace . .
He desires nothing more
than to see us finish the race.

So He gives us strength,
whenever ours is weak
keeping us humble
so we may remain meek.

He renews our faith,
so like eagles we’ll soar
in storms He helps us
to rise over the roar.

His anger is slow,
as we stumble along
His love is steadfast
to keep our trust strong.

He forgives and forgets,
our sins and our shame
He provides salvation
to all who call on His name.

God’s cup is brimming,
with compassion and favor
so He sent His own Son . . .
to be our personal Savior!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassion’s fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

Fruit Of Our Faith ~

Within each of us,
the Holy Spirit resides . . .
and the fruit of our faith
needs to be daily applied.

But, we must feel the fire,
the burning of desire
to call upon His strength
so His might we’ll acquire.

Then we’ll be loving,
in all things we’ll have peace
and our joy and happiness
will be natural to release.

To have God like patience,
we must learn to be kind
then gentleness will flow
from our hearts and minds.

We need to let humility,
guide us to being meek
by not forgetting His power
each day we must seek.

The Holy Spirit abides
in every one of us . . .
and to produce much fruit
in Jesus we need to trust!

~~~~~~~~~

John 15:5

I am the vine, ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me, and I in him,
the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.

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.”

Sticky Note To God ~05.02.22~

Titus 3:2


God Sees The Real Us ~

God sees the real us,
He is able to view . . .
right inside the heart
of me and you.

He can look beyond,
what the eyes find
to know the thoughts
that hide in the mind.

God is searching for,
hearts that are gentle
where living in peace
is always central.

He glances not at,
the outside of us
but, within the soul
of those who trust.

God does not look,
at how high our stature
He’s looking to find . . .
those of a meek nature!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 3:4

But let it be the hidden man
of the heart, in that which is
not corruptible, even the ornament
of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God
of great price.

1 Samuel 16:7

But the Lord said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance,
or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him:
for the Lord seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward
appearance, but the Lord looketh
on the heart.

No Laws Against ~

Everyday there seems to be,
more rules, new laws . . .
mandates unbelievable
filled with plenty of flaws.

But, I know of some things,
there are no laws against . . .
for they’re not made up by man
but, Holy Spirit dispensed.

They distribute faith,
gentleness they allot
they give us temperance
when our nerves are shot.

They provide to us love,
joy they daily release
into our souls they render
the promise of eternal peace.

They help us to be meek,
by filling us with goodness
making it easier for us
to show others kindness.

Into each of us these fruit,
the Holy Spirit instills . . .
unlike the laws of man . . .
there’s no spending pork or frills!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Growing In Jesus ~

Grow in grace today,
plant faith in your heart
let it root itself in love . . .
and more grace it’ll start.

Grow in wisdom today,
let it dig its way into you
let it branch out and touch
everything you say and do.

Grow in humility today,
let meekness bud inside
so compassion can begin
to develop and divide.

Grow in charity today,
let is spring up and rise
make a contribution
no matter what the size.

Grow in knowledge today,
harvest from the Word
reap from the truth you find
then share all you’ve heard.

Grow in grace today,
grow in knowledge too
grow so others will see . . .
Jesus growing in you!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“Grow in grace, and in
the knowledge of our
Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.”
To him be glory both
now and for ever. Amen.

Colossians 3:12


If I Were More Like My Master ~

If I were more like my Master . . .
I’d walk miles in the sand
just to lend someone
a helping, loving hand.

I’d be compassionate and kind,
gracious and merciful too
I’d give godly instructions
and show them what to do.

I’d calm down the waves,
walk on the turbulent sea
I’d encourage others to have
the faith to follow after me.

I’d see the lost and unsaved,
all the hungry people to feed
I would let them all know . . .
salvation was what they need.

I’d travel to every city,
spread the Good News around
I’d speak of Jesus’ forgiveness
how new life can be found.

If I were more like my Master . . .
I’d have a spirit of servitude
humility and meekness
would be my constant attitude!

None But The Hungry ~

None but the hungry soul,
can be satisfied
none but the thirsty ones
will have peace inside.

None but the longing heart,
can be fulfilled
none but the willful ones
will have faith instilled.

None but the seeking mind,
can be transformed
none but the desiring ones
will to God be reformed.

None but the selfless life,
can be made anew
none but the meek ones
will Jesus come to.

None but the hungry soul,
can see the Light
none but the thirsty heart
will stay in the fight!

~~~~~~

Psalm 107:9

For he satisfieth
the longing soul,
and filleth the hungry
soul with goodness.

1 Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good
profession before many witnesses.

Restore My Joy Lord ~

Restore my joy Lord,
give back to me . . .
the jubilation I had
when I first meet Thee.

Give me back the hope,
like that in my youth
when no one refuted
or challenged my truth.

Restore my faith Lord,
give back unto me
the spirit of meekness
to follow after Thee.

Give me back the trust,
like when I first believed
before satan advanced
to confuse and deceive.

Restore my joy Lord,
give back to me . . .
the faith and trust
of a spirit set free!

Living On The Vine ~

Living on the Vine,
takes obedience
it takes a faith
full of resilience.

It takes meekness,
zeal and devotion
it takes a life
under submission.

Living on the Vine,
takes enduring
it takes a trust
securely assuring.

It takes training,
divine direction
it takes a heart
open to instruction.

A life on the Vine,
takes faithful abiding
if good fruit . . .
it want’s to be providing!

~~~~~~~

John 15:4

Abide in me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot
bear fruit of itself,
except it abide in the vine;
no more can ye,
except ye abide in me.

#throwbackpoem# Recipe For A Happy New Year

Take a cup of Forgiveness,
stir in some of God’s grace
then fold it into your heart
and this recipe you’ll embrace.

But, you’ll need to keep adding,
more ingredients as you go
if you plan on having a year
where Love can rise and grow.

You’re going to need Patience,
at least a cup or two . . .
if you want to have Meekness
bubbling up inside of you.

You’ll need to slowly blend in,
a heaping spoonful of Goodness
then beat it into the mixture
so you can whip up Gentleness.

Don’t forget to add a pinch of Joy,
and as you whisk it into Peace
add a dollop of Faith and Trust
and Hope you will release.

If you live in the Spirit,
you’ll need to walk in it too . . .
and if you follow this recipe
it’ll produce His fruit in you!

~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

Imperishable Beauty ~

This CHRISTmas,
instead of hearth decorating
let it be your inner beauty
to all that’s captivating.

Rather than trimming,
your roof top, eaves and lawn
put on a calm and quiet spirit
so others to Jesus will be drawn.

This CHRISTmas,
instead of lighting a tree
let the light of Jesus
in you be what others see.

Rather than garnishing,
your fireplace mantle
adorn your heart and soul
with a spirit that’s gentle.

This CHRISTmas,
instead of all the fuss and ado
let your inner man reveal . . .
Jesus living inside of you!

~~~~~

 1 Peter 3:4

“But let your adorning be
the hidden person of the heart
with the imperishable beauty
of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which in God’s sight
is very precious”

Do You Feel Like A Babe ~

Do you feel like a babe,
do you feel incomplete
does your spiritual life
seem to be bittersweet?

Well you need not be,
too worried or concerned
for deeper faith comes . . .
through lessons learned.

Does your faith feel feeble,
does it seem so weak
do you trip and stumble
over being too meek?

Well you’re not alone,
others felt this way too
and as your faith grows
it too will humble you.

Do you have lots of doubt,
do you feel stunted
does your future hope
feel as if it’s been gutted?

Well continue to trust,
and in Jesus to believe . . .
for the more you hope
the more faith you’ll receive!

“And I, brethren,
could not speak unto you
as unto spiritual,

even as unto babes in Christ.”

Good Morning Quote ~04.15.18~


Fruit Developing ~

It’s hard sometimes,
having self-control
it’s not easy to let
restraint into your soul.

But, it needn’t be,
as hard as you think
when with the Holy Spirit
your life is in sync.

It’s hard sometimes,
to be peaceful
it’s not easy to let
hope make you joyful.

But, it needn’t be,
that difficult to do
when the Holy Spirit
works inside of you.

It’s hard sometimes,
to be good and kind
it’s not easy to let
gentleness fill your mind.

But, it needn’t be,
too problematic
for, with the Holy Spirit
it becomes automatic.

It’s hard sometimes,
developing these fruits
unless the Holy Spirit . . .
establishes their roots!

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

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

Meekness, temperance:

Let Your Gentleness Ooze ~

When imperfections,
in others you see
don’t call them out
instead, like Jesus be.

For in your humility,
they’ll see their lack of
and for what’s not said
will be noted out of love.

When someone’s pride,
gets in your face
don’t go off on them
instead, show some grace.

For in your patience,
they will start to find
how their self-importance
rules their heart and mind.

When your own faults,
are pointed out to you
let it be your gentleness . . .
that oozes through!

If We’re to Be Meek ~

if-were-to-be-meek-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If we’re to be meek,
but, still be strong . . .
then we must believe
God won’t steer us wrong.

If we’re to be humble,
but, still be bold . . .
then we must let God
into our heart’s to mold.

If we’re to be poor,
but, still be wealthy
then we must remain . . .
to God’s ways healthy.

If we’re to be gentle,
but, still be confident . . .
then we must trust God
is always competent.

If were to be meek,
humble, poor and gentle
then we must live a life . . .
of faith, trust and self-denial!

Putting on CHRIST ~

Putting on Christ ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I’m putting on Christ,
I’m  wearing the robe of love
wrapping it around me
till it fits like a glove.

I’m going to don an attitude,
of humility and meekness
I’m going to bind myself up
with gentleness and kindness.

I’m putting on Christ,
after righteousness I’ll thirst
I’m going to hunger after
putting God in my life first.

I’m going to turn away,
from  temptation and sin
I’m calling upon the power
He gives to me within.

I’m putting on Christ,
wrapping myself in His grace
for it’s the only way I know
to finish the faithful race!

God First ~

God First ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo IBibleverses

Whenever I seek God first,
I cannot believe my eyes
the first thing I can see . . .
is right though Satan’s lies.

When I put God’s kingdom,
straight ahead of me
it open’s up my heart . . . .
to the way I ought to be.

Whenever I put God first,
I gain spiritual insight . . .
everything looks different
in the newness of His light.

Making His righteousness,
in my life a priority . . .
help me to live a life
with meekness and modesty.

When I seek God first,
I see things differently
when I first put God . . .
all things look heavenly!

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

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these
