God, My Light ~

God, my Light,
my Beacon, my Ray
give me Your clarity
upon each new day.

Be my earthly guide,
help me to navigate
as I make my journey
into the narrow gate.

God, my Light,
my Lamp, my Beam
may Your Word be to me
a life-giving stream.

As I travel onward,
my every step direct
so I too can Your Love
in the darkness reflect.

God, my Light,
My Illuminator, my Reflector
help me be for You . . .
a Light Generator!

Ephesians 5:8

For ye were sometimes darkness,
but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light:

Written On My Heart ~

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be written on my heart
so that from Your ways
I will not ever depart.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
in my soul be embedded
so to the narrow gate
I’ll always be headed.

Oh, Lord may Your Word,
be my constant guide
so that with You in heaven
one day I will abide.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be my only light source
so I may be filled  . . .
with Your mighty force.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be imprinted on my mind
so if I should ever stray
the way back to You I’ll find!

that I might not sin against thee.”

The Perfect Way of God ~

God’s way is perfect,
it leads to His Son
where grace and forgiveness
is offered to everyone.

God’s way is peaceful,
if you trust and believe
God’s mercy and favor
for yours sins you’ll receive.

God’s way is righteous,
it is tried and true
it’s where you will find
why Jesus died for you.

God’s way is direct,
it is holy and straight
leading all who follow it
through the narrow gate.

God’s way is perfect,
it leads to salvation
removing the curse . . .
of eternal damnation!

Psalm 18:30

“As for God, his way is perfect:
the word of the Lord is tried:
he is a buckler to all those
that trust in him.”

My Sights Are Set ~

My sights are set,
directly before me
my eyes look forward
to the glory I’ll see.

I concentrate on the path,
dependable and straight
I keep my feet marching
towards the narrow gate.

My eyes are kept alert,
for satan’s pitfall
my legs move onward
so into them I won’t fall.

My steps are committed,
to God and His ways
onto the worldly ones
I set not my gaze.

My sights are set,
fixed on going straight
my feet are pointed
right to the narrow gate!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 4:25-27

“Let thine eyes look right on,
and let thine eyelids look
straight before thee.

Ponder the path of thy feet,
and let all thy ways be
established.

Turn not to the right hand
nor to the left:
remove thy foot from evil.”

Guard My Feet Lord ~

guard-my-feet-lord-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Guard my feet Lord,
keep them from stumbling
help them to be strong
keep them from wobbling.

Guide my feet Lord,
keep them going straight
help them to proceed
through the narrow gate.

Protect my steps Lord,
keep them from tripping
make them sturdy
keep them from slipping.

Lead my feet Lord,
secure my faith walk
help them to march
to the words I talk.

Guard my feet Lord,
let them not deviate
to the world’s ways
let them not acclimate!

~~~~~~~~

1 Samuel 2:9

“He will keep the feet of his saints,
and the wicked shall be silent
in darkness; for by strength
shall no man prevail.”

Do Not Go Astray ~

Do Not Go Astray ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann Wikipedia

Do not lose heart,
do not go astray
from the Good Shepherd
be not lead away.

Do not give up,
do not give in
do not let temptation
ever, ever win.

Do not wander,
do not roam around
do not lose the faith
that you have found.

Do not turn,
do not separate
do not get distracted
from the narrow gate.

Do not leave,
do not go your own way
do not let sin tempt you
from God to ever sway!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;

we have turned
every one to his own way;

and the Lord hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”

The Narrow Gate ~

jesusonlyway CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s only one direction to go,
only one road to take . . .
but few will discover the path
leading to the narrow gate.

It takes a lot of effort to find it,
determination to enter through
it takes more than going to church
sitting every Sunday in a pew.

For, wide is the road,
leading to death and destruction
and satan paves it with
worldly greed and seduction.

There’s only one finish line,
for us to race towards to win
there’s only one goal to have
but Heaven not all will enter in.

The gate we choose to take,
will determine our eternal fate
and we must decide if it be wide
or the one that is straight!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7.14
King James Version

“Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”
