Sticky Note From God 01.22.18

Out With The Old ~

Out with the old,
on with the new
now that Jesus
lives inside of you.

No more bitterness,
no more anger
now that Jesus
is your Anchor.

No more grudges,
no more frustrations
now that Jesus
is your Foundation.

No more displeasure,
no more resentment
now that Jesus
is your contentment.

On with the new,
out with the old
now that you’re in . . .
Jesus’ fold!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 4.31-32

Let all bitterness,
and wrath, and anger,
and clamour, and evil
speaking, be put away
from you, with all malice:

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

King James Version

Walking in The Light ~

Walking in the Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When we walk in the light,
we will recognize sin
we will see the darkness
that still creeps within.

We will see the rebellion,
of our old wicked ways
we will smell the stench
of our own spiritual decay.

When we walk in the light,
we will see all the wrong
we will know to this world
we no longer belong.

We will see our greediness,
our lusts for former things
we’ll know not to fall again
into the traps they bring.

When we walk in the light,
from temptation we will flee
for the light shines brighter
then the darkness we see!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7

“But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood of
Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.”

A New Identity ~

In Christ Alone ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Once I thought,
myself I knew . . .
but then came Jesus
made all things new.

He took my heart,
made it His own
then my life . . .
He began to hone.

He put into me,
His own likeness
opened my eyes
to all the darkness.

He gave me hope,
when I had none
filled me with peace
when He was done.

Now I am in Him,
He is in me . . .
the True Light
I now can see.

With Jesus I have,
a brand new identity
that will be with me
for all of eternity!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things are
passed away; behold,
all things are become new.”

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.”

Life’s Wrinkles ~

CHRISTian poetry deborahann ~ Put on the New Man

Life has many wrinkles
needing to be ironed out
life has many creases
running all throughout.

Life has many folds,
needing to be smoothed
life has many lines
requiring to be removed.

Life has many crinkles,
needing to be flattened
life has many seams
asking to be straightened.

Life has many edges,
causing us to crumble . . .
life has many layers
underneath all the ruble.

Life is like a filthy rag,
where sin has left it stain
but when we put on Jesus
the new man comes to reign!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 13:14

“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh,
to fulfil the lusts thereof.”

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.”

Putting On the New Man ~

God . . .

You offered to me this new man,
and asked me to put him on
You challenged me to grow in him
and to be willing to be Spirit drawn.

You told me my life was useless,
and my heart was as dry as dust
that my mind was full of darkness
overflowing with the sin of lust.

You asked me to give to You,
the worldly joys in my possession
You told me that in return for them
You’d give me Your pure perfection.

You made me open up my eyes,
and see the uselessness in what I do
showing me no matter how hard I try
they’re fruitless when done without You.

You revealed to me that all my pain,
was from the emptiness deep inside
and why this old and new man . . .
can’t live peacefully side by side.

You asked me to make a choice,
a dark heart for one full of light
I chose to put on the righteous man
and to give the old one ~ a holy fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:24
King James Version

And that ye
put on the new man,

which after God
is created in righteousness

and true holiness.

Change Me Lord ~

Change Me Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Change me Lord,
I know that I should be . . .
a different kind of person
than the one that I call me.

Change me Lord,
there’s so much You can do
take this old life of mine
and make me someone new.

Change me Lord,
from the inside out . . .
to trust in only You
without fear or doubt.

Change me Lord,
make my heart grow true
help me to see the sin
in the things I say and do.

Change me Lord,
show me what I do wrong
take away my weakness
make me someone strong.

Change me Lord,
till I see You’re all I need
to live my life just like You
in my every act and deed.

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:16
King James Version

“No man putteth a piece of new cloth
unto an old garment, for that which is
put in to fill it up taketh from the garment,
and the rent is made worse.”
