Captured Thoughts ~

taking-every-thought-captive CHRISTIAN poetry by deborah ann

Capture my thoughts Lord,
gird me in the truth
let me follow Thy Word
as in the days of my youth.

With childlike faith,
take into custody my mind
keep me close to You
so Your ways I can find.

Control and restrain me,
release me not from Thy hold
may my heart for You
not turn luke-warm or cold.

Let me not be disillusioned,
by the wisdom of man
seize upon my belief
show me Your perfect plan.

Capture my thoughts Lord,
in my mind be in  control
I give to You my life . . .
let not man conquer my soul!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 10:5
King James Version

“Casting down imaginations,
and every high thing that exalteth itself
against the knowledge of God,
and bringing into captivity
every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

The Heart of Christ ~

let-this-mind-be-in-you CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
to love one and all . . .
to forgive the one who stumbles
to lift up the ones who fall.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d see others deepest need
I’d minister to the lost
their souls to heaven I’d lead.

Oh, to have the life of Christ,
to see all in His saving light
to heal the ailing hearts
to give all eternal sight.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d take His Word across the land
I’d lead others to His Kingdom
deliver the unsaved into His hand.

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
beating deep inside me . . .
to have the mind just like Jesus
oh, how wonderful that would be!

King James Version

“Let this mind be in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus:”

Lord, I’ll seek you in the morning,
I’ll seek you throughout the night
I’ll seek You through the day
I’ll seek You with all my might.

I’ll seek You in the good times,
I’ll seek You when things go wrong
I’ll seek You when I am weak
I’ll seek You when I’m strong.

I’ll seek You with a longing heart,
I’ll seek You with a weary mind
I’ll seek You with a thirsty soul
I’ll seek You until Your peace I find.

Lord, I will seek you every day,
I will seek You everywhere

Absolute Surrender ~

Live by Grace used with permission IBible Verses

Absolute surrender,
Lord, I give my life to You
in absolute surrender
do what You must do.

Absolute surrender,
my mind to You I yield
in absolute surrender
so I may be Spirit filled.

Absolute surrender,
my heart is Yours to mold
in absolute surrender,
my thoughts for You to hold.

Absolute surrender,
my soul is in Your hand
in absolute surrender
on You I’ll firmly stand.

Absolute surrender,
my body to You I give
in absolute surrender
to Your will, I will live.

and the life which I now live

I live by the faith
of the Son of God,

who loved me,
and gave himself for me.

In His Hands ~

In His Hands ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes problems come,
changing all our plans . . .
making it ever clearer
all things are in God’s hands.

Hands that long to hold,
to comfort and to console
hands that want to heal
the ache within the soul.

Hands that desire to reach,
far into the heart and mind
hands that hold perfect peace
for anxious ones to find.

Hands that crave to embrace,
grieving hearts in the night
hands that hunger to lead
the lost into His saving light.

Hands that are capable,
hands confident and sure
hands that calm the storms
hands that holds life’s cure.

Sometimes problems come,
and we must change our plans
so that we may come to rest . . .
in His almighty hands!

King James Version

“Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:
for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.”

The Window of Your Soul ~

Window Art by Mariane Trinidad free photo #8793

If God should look into,
the window of your soul . . .
will He see a loving heart
or spot an empty hole?

As He peers into the glass,
smeared with the streaks of sin
will He see His strength inside
or find weakness deep within?

As He peeks into the cracks,
of a broken windowpane
will He see delight and joy
or sight the shattered pain?

As He pulls away the curtain,
and unveils the hidden man
will He see a life close to Him
or will there be an empty span?

If God should look into,
the window of your soul . . .
will He see a heart of flesh
or will it be stony cold?

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

Ezekiel 36:26
King James Version

“A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
and I will give you an heart of flesh.”

He Restores Souls ~

He Restores Souls ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
He restores my soul,
whenever I stray
He brings me back
to His righteous way.

Though I may error,
His grace remains
He removes the blemish
of sins ungodly stains.

He restores my soul,
He renews my mind
His goodness and mercy
I can always find.

Though I may wander,
He’ll not turn me away
He is always there
for those who go astray.

He restores my soul,
He’ll restore yours too
just turn back to Jesus
He’s waiting for you!

Being Renewed Day by Day ~

Renewed Day by Day ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each day I’m being renewed,
in the recess of my mind
as I read the Good Word
I find blessings of every kind.

As my faith is being restored,
my trust in God improves
I can see through my life
how the Holy Spirit moves.

A new man in me He makes,
as I put off the former things
my strength is refreshed
as I grow my eagle wings.

A clean heart He bestows,
a transformed spirit lives in me
and the joy of my salvation
I want every one to see.

Though my body is perishing,
I’m being renewed day by day
and the inward man is rejoicing
singing hallelujah and hooray!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:16
King James Version

“For which cause we faint not;
but though our outward man perish,
yet the inward man is renewed day by day.”

Carnal Minds ~

Thoughts by Nick Schmidt free photo #15612

Soft Christians, ever so soft,
in the Bible I read . . .
they are of a carnal mind
in thought and deed.

They don’t make waves,
feathers they won’t ruffle
it’s all about God’s love
and His wrath they muffle.

They walk into church,
call it the narrow way
then the rest of the week
from the truth they stray.

Their path isn’t straight,
they just think it is . . .
but the sober reality
it is so far from His.

They don’t feed upon,
the Word and the law
in fact the carnal man
doesn’t see his own flaw.

They think if they tithe,
give their ten-percent
they will receive gifts
that are heaven-sent.

Worldly and fleshy,
they go with the flow
and the truth in the Bible
they prefer not to know.

So, they edit it out,
make up new meanings
definitions that take from sin
the need for redeeming.

Carnal Christians,
misplaced and lost . . .
all because they’ve become
to sin, yielding and soft!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:6-8
King James Version 

“For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:
for it is not subject to the law of God,
neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh
cannot please God.”

My First Love ~

Come to Me by Jason Harper free photo #3244

Under the arbor of my soul,
with my First Love, I sit and rest
the fragrance of His grace
reminds me of how much I’m blessed.

On the trellis of my mind,
He supports my every limb
He reinforces His love for me
so I may lean evermore on Him.

Beneath the lattice of my heart,
there lies an undying devotion
and the mercy He has for me
consumes me with raw emotion.

He is the framework of my faith,
my life in Jesus is forever entwined
and the love I found under the arbor
is of His plan and by His design!

~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11
King James Version

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

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.”

Convicted ~

Convicted ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, may your Holy Word,
convict me of my sin . . .
may it penetrate my life
and cut out the pride within.

May it humble me,
with the edges of its power
may be engraved in my mind
so satan I can overpower.

May it make me obedient,
with its piercing truthfulness
may it permeate into my soul
and fill me with faithfulness.

May it help me to be trustful,
with the sharpness of its might
may it make a way into my heart
so I will be pleasing in Your sight.

May it make me a conqueror,
with its discerning knowledge
may it breach the stony places
so Your grace I can acknowledge.

Lord, may your Holy Word,
convict me of my sin . . .
may it penetrate my entire life
until it is You ~ who lives within

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:12
King James Version

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
and sharper than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul
and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and
is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
