Tag Archives: Narrow Way

Where’s The Zeal ~

Where’s the zeal,
where did it go . . .
where’s the burning desire
the narrow way to show?

Where’s the zest,
where’s the utterance
why do we now have
for sin tolerance?

Where’s the willingness,
where’s the dedication
where’s the readiness to lead
others to true salvation?

Where’s the eagerness,
where’s the thirst
why is the word sin
now on the blacklist?

Where’s the salt and light,
where did they go . . .
why has repentance
hit a new low!

1 Timothy 4:1

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall
depart from the faith, giving heed
to seducing spirits,
and doctrines of devils;”

God Has My Back ~

I have personal needs,
individual wants I lack
but, God always has
my spiritual back.

I trust Him to provide,
for me every day
the patience to keep me
on the narrow way.

I know He will grant,
me with His grace
to meet head on
the trials I face.

I have faith knowing,
He will give me power
to overcome temptation
my every waking hour.

I have many needs,
personal wants I lack
but, I always get wisdom
whenever God I ask!

~~~~~

James 1:4-5

“But let patience have
her perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and entire,
wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God, that giveth
to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him..”

Committing To The Narrow Way ~

commiting-to-the-narrow-way-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Having a hard time,
staying on the narrow way
too many obstacles
to get over each day?

Too many trials,
testings and tribulations
keeping you from striving
to your eternal destination?

Feeling you’ll never get,
through the narrow gate
too many challenges keeping
you from going straight?

Too many worries,
troubles and cares
too many burdens
for you to have to bear?

Well don’t get discourage,
to the narrow way commit
and be happy that you  . . .
were even able to find it!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:14

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

My Days are Numbered ~

My Days are Numbered ~ CJRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My days they are numbered,
I don’t know how many remain
but one thing I know for sure . . .
to reach the goal, I must strain.

There are just so many hours,
God gives me each new day
and every minute counts  . . .
as I travel the narrow way.

I can’t rest for a second,
I must keep on, pressing on
for I will never know when  . . .
my time here will be gone.

There’s tons for me to do,
and my talents I must use
for what God has given me . . .
I mustn’t mistreat or abuse.

The minutes they tick quickly,
the seconds, oh how they do fly
and I must use them wisely . . .
before I say my final goodbye!

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

Psalm 90:12

“So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts
unto wisdom.”

Salvation’s Hill ~

Shadow Feet by Scarlet Plocher free photo #5029

Lord, let my feet walk the path,
where Your steps once laid
so that I may come to know
the road on which You prayed.

I know that it won’t be easy,
to keep up with Your pace
but, I know You will help me
as Your footprints, I try to trace.

Lead me in my hearts pursuit,
as I seek to follow You
for I know the way is narrow
and not all are getting through.

Lord, keep and guide my footsteps,
on the path for me You paved
so our feet can one day meet
on the hill where I was saved.

which is called Calvary,
there they crucified him,”

Where Will Your Journey End?

Straight is the Way used with permission Doorpost Verses on facebook
We are all on a journey,
only God knows to where
and on our own we are no good
for the wear and tear.

We often wander off,
the straight and narrow path
and find ourselves on the road
that will lead us to God’s wrath.

There is only one gate,
for us to enter in . . .
the other one will take us
to where we are sure to sin.

So if you’re on the highway,
of selfishness and greed
then pray and ask the Lord
to turn you back with great speed.

For the hour no one knows,
but this journey will soon end
and if you’re not on the narrow road
it will be hell  ~  just around the bend!

which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”

Keep Me Lord ~

Hold On by Marian Trinidad free photo #8554

Lord, keep me on Your course,
don’t let me get off the track
keep me looking forward
help me not to look back.

Lord, keep me going straight,
in the right and true direction
keep me seeking for my shelter
in the arms of Your protection.

Lord, keep me walking closely,
on the path You’ve laid for me
keep me searching for only You
until it’s Your light that I see.

Lord, keep me on the narrow,
no matter how small it gets
keep me from falling far away
so I have no life’s regrets.

Lord, keep me moving onward,
until I catch up with You
keep me holding Your hand
on my journey to be with You.

O Lord: let thy lovingkindness
and thy truth continually preserve me.”
