Sticky Note to God 04.07.17


Springtime Is In The Air ~

Springtime is in the air,
I can feel its warming trend
though it’s not really here
I know it’s around the bend.

Each day I eagerly await,
for the blessings of Spring
knowing in my weary soul
God will do a new thing.

Springtime is in the air,
I can see its early bloom
melting away the aches
of winter’s chilly gloom.

For Springtime brings,
re-birth and revival
a heart rendering calm
upon its sunny arrival.

Springtime is in the air,
I hope you can feel it too
for it’s God’s promise . . .
the winter soul He’ll renew!

Song of Solomon 2: 11-12

“For, lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds
is come, and the voice of the turtle
is heard in our land;”

Good Morning Spring ~

Good Morning Spring ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Good morning Spring,
I’m so glad you’re here
with the sweet melodies
you sing into my ear.

I am so thankful,
for your sunny rays
for the fragrant blooms
you drift along my way.

Good morning Spring,
I have missed you so
thank you for easing
winter’s every woe.

Thank you for leaving,
a carpet of warmness
for letting me soak up
your peaceful calmness.

Good morning Spring,
I’m so glad God sent you
for you are the season
He uses to renew!

What God’s Begun ~

What God's Begun ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s been working,
in me I know
and what He began
is starting to show.

He’s given my mind,
a transformation
to follow His ways
until my completion.

He’s taken my heart,
once made of stone
gave me a new one
just like His own.

He’s breathed new life,
into my dead soul
gave it His Spirit
to be in control.

Every day of my life,
He is working in me
I know its His image
He’s wanting to see.

God hasn’t finished,
what He has begun
but I can hardly wait
until with me He’s done!

“Being confident of this very thing,
that he which hath begun a good work

New Life ~

New Life ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I rely on my faith,
each day to be strong
I trust it even when . . .
things are going wrong.

I rely on prayer,
every day to get by
I believe my needs
God will daily supply.

I rely on God’s grace
each day, I need more
I know I can count on it
to heal and to restore.

I rely on God’s Word,
every day when I read
I’ve learned to follow
wherever He may lead.

I rely on my faith,
each day that I live
I believe a newness . . .
everyday it will give.

Feel Good Religion ~

Dead Works ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Dead - IBible Verse

I love the feel good religion,
like the one you hear today
I like knowing God loves me
no matter what I do or say.

I like giggling and laughing,
as the pastor jokes around
I like all the modern music
with that big band sound.

I like the laid back attitude,
the easygoing, off beat tempo
I love that the mega building
is progressive and contempo.

I like the main message,
about being richly blessed
I like the fact that my sins
I no longer have to confess.

I like not having to repent,
or change my ways or views
I like I’m not told anymore
what to God, is or isn’t taboo.

I love the feel good religion,
like the one you hear today
but, I love Jesus more . . .
so I think from it, I’ll stay away!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:13-15

” For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

And no marvel; for Satan himself
is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers
also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.”

The Blessings of Spring ~

The Blessings of Spring ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

~ The Blessings of Spring ~

There are many blessings,
that each new Spring brings
you can see it bloom about
and hear the song it sings.

With winters bleakness over,
and brighter days ahead
comes promises of new life
Springtime loves to spread.

As God unfolds the flowers,
and their buds begin to show
He gives to us the assurance
grace in our hearts will grow.

He sends us the robin’s song,
with the promise to provide
a shelter under His mighty wing
where in His love we can abide.

He melts the snowy covers,
and sends the refreshing rain
sprinkling us with His mercies
to heal winter’s ache and pain.

God’s given to all His Son,
to shed upon us a new light
and the real blessing of Spring . . .
is keeping Jesus in our sight!

Song of Solomon 2: 11-12

Sing to Me Lord, Jesus ~

Sint To Me Lord Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today is a new day,
yesterday is gone
tomorrow He promises
He’ll bring a new song.

Sing to me Lord Jesus,
sing to my soul
songs that enlighten
songs which console.

Sing of Your coming,
sweet music to my ears
sing of forgiveness
the drying of tears.

Sing, oh my Lord Jesus,
songs that will save
sing about the new life
You so lovingly gave.

~~~

Sing with the Lord Jesus,
the song of His love
sing of His compassion
flowing down from above.

Lift up your voices,
be a voice in His choir
sing until every lost soul
burns with heaven’s desire.

Lift up your voices,
rise up and sing . . .
rejoice in the new song
He’s coming to bring!

~~~

Psalm 33:3
King James Version

“Sing unto him a new song;
play skilfully with a loud noise.”

Christ in Me ~

Christ in Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Christ in me, me in Christ,
there is no better place to be
I thank my God for His Son
and the life He’s given me.

He’s in me, I’m in Him,
together we have peace
as one, there’s a glorious calm
that will never fail or cease.

His power in me, my power is Him,
together we are strong
He strengthens me, I cling to Him
whenever things go wrong.

Living my life with my Lord,
Him living His life in me
together we have become one
just like it was meant to be!

Mercy Me!

psalm-63-4 by darrell creswell used with permission

Lord of my comfort,
has set me free
from this life of misery
healed my heart
then went beyond
and now we have
an eternal bond.

Oh, how I love Him,
Mercy me . . .
my precious Jesus
has set me free.

Lord of my comfort,
has given to me
a blessed ~ joyous glee
healed my body
restored my soul
now I am finally
complete and whole.

Oh, how I love Him,
Mercy me . . .
my precious Jesus
has set me free.

Lord of my comfort,
bestowed upon me
a new life ~ so that I could be
wrapped up in His Spirit
caught up in His love
now I know what my life
has been devoid of.

Oh, how I love Him,
Mercy me
my precious Jesus
has set me free!

Living In The Light ~

Living in the Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Living in the light,
brings about true freedom
it will give you access
to God’s eternal kingdom.

It exposes the sin,
that is enslaving you
as it directs you to the cross
it will show you what to do.

Living in the light,
gives new purpose to life
no more aimless drifting
no more fighting daily strife.

It will guide and lead you,
closer to God every day
for the truth will shine
grace and mercy on your way.

Living in the light,
brings joy and vitality
gone are the gloomy days
for there is a new reality.

No more living in fear,
no more feeling all alone
living in the light
is trusting in God’s Son.

Living in the light,
isn’t very hard to do
but, following Jesus
is all up to you!

~~~~~~~~~

John 8:12
King James Version

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world: he that followeth me
shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

Alive, I’m Alive


Alive, I’m alive,
dead to transgression and sin
I’m alive, I’m reborn
now that Jesus lives within.

I’m alive, I’m flourishing,
I’m eternally bound
I’m alive, I was lost
now I’m thankfully found.

I’m alive, I’m at peace,
in Jesus, I am forgiven
I’m alive, forever more
a new life, I’ve been given.

I’m alive, I’m thriving,
His Spirit is breathing in me
I’m alive, everlastingly blessed
now that Jesus set me free.

Alive, I’m alive,
by grace and grace alone
I’m alive and I’m waiting
for Jesus to take me home!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 15:32
King James Version

“It was right that we should make merry
and be glad, for your brother was dead
and is alive again, and was lost and is found.'”

Spring Tease ~

spring-tease-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I thought I saw the sun peeking,
through the dark clouds today
and in between the snowflakes
I prayed Spring was on its way.

For, I’m tired of the chilly days,
and the long cold, frigid nights
oh, how I wish Spring would come
with its sunny, friendly sights.

I look at my barren garden,
longing to see my climbing rose
just the thought of its perfume
tickles my frozen little nose.

This prayerful hope for Spring,
comes like a breath of fresh air
making me feel all giddy . . .
as this winter has been a bear.

I know this taste of Spring,
is just a little tease . . .
but soon the Lord will bring
a gentle warming breeze.

But, for now I’ll just have to wait,
for nature’s way and law . . .
and trust in the Creator’s timing
that my feet will begin to thaw!
