A Kinder Place ~

I wish the world was,
a much kinder place . . .
I wish more would know
the power of God’s grace.

I wish it was filled,
with peace not strife
I wish more would find
in Jesus eternal life.

I wish the world was,
a better place to live . . .
I wish people would be
more willing to forgive.

I wish it were full,
of love and not hate
I wish more would find
the straight, narrow gate.

I wish the world was,
a much more kinder place . . .
I wish more heart’s were
tenderized by God’s grace!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:32

And be ye kind
one to another,
tenderhearted,
forgiving one another,
even as God
for Christ’s sake
hath forgiven you.

Let The Truth Guide You ~

Let the truth guide you,
let it lead your way . . .
so on the narrow path
you’ll continue to stay.

For, without the truth,
there are only lies
causing you to take
your eyes off the prize.

Let the truth be your rule,
let it be your banner
so into the straight gate
you’ll be able to enter.

For, without the truth,
satan will try to deceive
making you doubt
everything you believe.

Let the truth guide you,
let it direct you too
listen and follow . .
Jesus’ voice in you!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:27-28

My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:

And I give unto them
eternal life; and they
shall never perish,
neither shall any man
pluck them out of my hand.

Oh, My Unrepentant Friend ~

Oh my unrepentant friend,
don’t think you are good
for not one person . . .
does as they should.

That hate that you have,
embedded in your heart
will keep you and God
distant and far apart.

Oh, my tolerant friend,
don’t you be deceived
for everyone by sin
is sick and diseased.

By your liberal thinking,
you are being lead astray
the road you’re now on
is not the narrow way.

Oh, my progressive friends,
for you it’s not too late . . .
to turn back to the truth
leading to the straight gate!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:

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

Buckle Up ~

Buckle up,
if you want to be safe
make sure you’re secure
in the foundation of faith.

For you can bet on,
a long-bumpy ride
and you’re going to need
the truth by your side.

Buckle up,
if you want to stay
on the narrow . . .
straight, righteous way.

For your going to need,
to trust God’s direction
so you can travel on
the road to perfection.

Buckle up,
for there’s danger up ahead
and you need to make sure
you’re Holy Spirit lead!

~~~~~~~

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.

Sticky Note to God ~08.13.18


Good Morning Quote ~07.28.18~


My Faith Keeps Me Hoping ~

My faith keeps me hoping,
it keeps me alert
so from the narrow way
I will not divert.

For, what I hope for,
isn’t found on this earth
nothing it provides
has everlasting worth.

My faith keeps me hopeful,
it keeps me vigilant
so on the narrow path
I may remain diligent.

For, my hope isn’t in,
the world’s offering
all that it  can render
is eternal suffering.

My faith gives me hope,
in the things I can’t see
my hope is my faith . . .
that Jesus lives in me!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

“Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for,
the evidence of things
not seen.”

Getting Through the Narrow Gate ~

getting-through-the-narrow-gate-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

If we’re to get through,
the narrow gate . . .
we need to work on
our stance and gait.

We need to keep,
our heads held high
we need to keep
Jesus in our eyes.

We need to run,
with endurance
we need to walk
with assurance.

We need to hold,
our shoulder’s back
we need to ward off
satan’s every attack.

We need to keep,
sin’s weight off
we need not care
if others scoff.

If we’re to get through,
the narrow gate . . .
we must keep our souls
pointing straight!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be which go in thereat:

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

Sticky Note From God 06.24.16

Sticky Note From God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deboran ann ~ 06.24.16 ~


Two Roads, One Path ~

Two Roads, One Path ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There are two roads,
two different destinies
one has a remedy
the other has penalties.

One leads to heaven,
the other one to hell
both determine where
in eternity we will dwell.

One takes endurance,
strength and firmness
one takes indifference
greed and worldliness.

Each one of us,
has a decision to make
we must choose the road
we are willing to take.

There are two different roads,
but only one true path
that will lead us away . . .
from knowing God’s wrath!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:

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

Closer Everyday ~

Drawing Nearer ~ CHRISTian poem by deborah ann ~

I’m being drawn,
closer every day
I’m getting further
down the narrow way.

I’m being pulled,
in the right direction
I’m being drawn
by a divine connection.

I’m being guided,
down the righteous way
I’m getting nearer
to the goal every day.

I’m being lead,
towards the eternal light
I’m being taught
to win the faithful fight.

I’m being drawn,
closer in every way
I’m moving nearer
to God each day!

~~~~~~~

James 4:8

“Draw nigh to God,
and he will draw nigh to you.
Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts,
ye double minded.”

Into the World ~

world-changers ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I was younger,
to all, I must admit
unto worldly lusts . . .
I often did submit.

It use to be fun,
to go out and play
so much temptation
out there on display.

At times, I thought,
how could this be right?
But, in the darkness . . .
who can spot the light?

Looking back I can see,
what a mess I made . . .
for all those fun times
oh, how I have paid.

Now that I am older,
I’m on the narrow way
from its straightness
I pray never to stray.

So, to all the youth,
take this to heart
into worldly lusts . . .
don’t even start!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 4:19

“And the cares of this world,
and the deceitfulness of riches,
and the lusts of other things entering in,
choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.”

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.”

Choices ~

Choices ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~
Every day we make choices,
what to eat, to wear, to do
everyday there are options
God places in front of you.

Every day there are decisions,
influencing our daily life
some will bring endless joy
others only eternal strife.

Every day we must decide,
the things to us that matter
some make our faith stronger
others causes it to scatter.

Every day we can pick out,
which path or road to take
some are straight and narrow
others lead to the wide gate.

Every day we need to select,
where to lay up our treasure
each new day we need to fix on
what will bring God pleasure.

Every day we make choices,
some we win, some we lose
every day there are options
will it be Jesus, whom we choose?

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13

“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the

gate, and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction

 and many there be
which go in 
there at:”
