A Spiritual Journey ~

a-spiritual-journey-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We’re all on a journey,
to spiritual maturity
we’re all looking for . . .
eternal security.

We’re all on the road,
to peace everlasting
we’re all looking for . . .
Godly understanding.

We’re all on the course,
to hope and perfection
we’re all looking for . . .
God’s divine direction.

We’re all on the path,
to knowing God’s will
we’re all looking for . . .
wisdom to be still.

We all carry baggage,
as we make our trip
we’re all looking for . . .
God’s truths to grip!

~~~~~

Psalm 25:4-5

“Shew me thy ways,
O Lord; teach me thy paths.

Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
for thou art the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day.”

Another Year is Here ~

another-year-is-here-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Another year is here,
I’m leaving the last behind
to remembering the bad
I am going to decline.

Instead I’ll focus on,
all the many blessings
God sent my way
to keep me from stressing.

I’ll take them with me,
into the New Year
and when I get depressed
they’ll bring my heart cheer.

I’ll keep my eyes on,
any new ones that He sends
and count each blessed one
right till the New Year ends

Another year is here,
the past one I am leaving
I’m starting this one out . . .
God trusting and believing!

Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.”

New Year’s Resolutions ~

New Year's Resolution~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Now that the holidays,
are finished and over . . .
we’re ready to make up
our new plans, to go for.

So we write out our list,
of freshly made resolutions
arrange them out carefully
for their perfect executions.

We set out all determined,
to reach our new-born goals
but within the first months
we lose all our self-control.

So this year if you want,
to really get into shape . . .
then your new year plans
you will need to scrape.

For you don’t need a list,
of new things you should do
all you need is your Bible . . .
and a year to read it through!

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

Romans 15:4

“For whatsoever things were written
aforetime were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of
the scriptures might have hope.”

New Beginnings ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ New Birth IBible Verses

A fresh start,
new beginnings too
not just for today . . .
but, all year through.

If you let Jesus,
be your resolution
He will bring to you
a glorious restoration.

Putting behind the past,
pressing into the goal
believing in God with . . .
your whole heart and soul.

Letting Him change you,
from the inside out . . .
pushing back your fears
giving Him your doubt.

A fresh new start,
is waiting for you . . .
oh, the mighty things
Jesus wants to do!

A New Start ~

A New Year Start ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m starting the New Year,
putting the last one behind . . .
knowing God has a purpose
in this one for me to find.

I don’t know what it’ll be,
don’t know where it’ll lead
but, I know God will guide
as my Bible I daily read.

Not sure what to expect,
don’t know the directions
but, God will let me know
as I give Him my attention.

I don’t know what I will do,
so, I’ll pray as I go . . .
for, I know God has a plan
and the way He will show.

I’m starting the New Year,
just like the one before . . .
trusting God holds the future
no matter what’s in store!

Recipe for A Happy New Year!

Take a cup of Forgiveness,
stir in some of God’s grace
then fold it into your heart
and this recipe you’ll embrace.

But, you’ll need to keep adding,
more ingredients as you go
if you plan on having a year
where Love can rise and grow.

You’re going to need Patience,
at least a cup or two . . .
if you want to have Meekness
bubbling up inside of you.

You’ll need to slowly blend in,
a heaping spoonful of Goodness
then beat it into the mixture
so you can whip up Gentleness.

Don’t forget to add a pinch of Joy,
and as you whisk it into Peace
add a dollop of Faith and Trust
and Hope you will release.

If you live in the Spirit,
you’ll need to walk in it too . . .
and if you follow this recipe
it’ll produce His fruit in you!

~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23 

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law.

Borrowed Time !

time used with permission IBible Verses

I’m living, on borrowed time,
right now I am in my prime
don’t know how many more days
till this old body slips away.

God’s given me another year,
I had better get into gear
got myself some work to do
before my time here is through.

I’m going to need God’s strength,
to go run the final length
got to get my act together
so these last years I can weather.

My times are in Gods’ hands,
don’t know what are His exit plans
but I need to use my days wisely
can’t take even one second lightly.

We’re all living on borrowed time,
even if you’re not in your prime
we must sacrifice worldly things . . .
if we want what eternal life brings!

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

“He that loveth his life shall lose it;
and he that hateth his life in this world
shall keep it unto life eternal.”

Another Year is Here!

All things New by Michael McFatridge free photo #11721

Another year has come,
and there she goes again
all of my new resolutions
I once more didn’t obtain.

As I look over my list,
I feel as if I failed . . .
so many good intentions
but, on them I truly bailed.

Who would have thought,
that only a year ago . . .
I believed I would have
so much more to show.

Well, that is it for me,
there’ll be no more list
this old one I’m holding
I’m crumbling in my fist.

This year my resolution,
will be only one thing . . .
each day I will praise my Lord
and bring glory to my King.

Yep, another year is gone,
and here she comes again
but this year’s declaration
my heart is fixen to attain!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 145:1-3
King James Version

“I will extol thee, my God, O king;
and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

Every day will I bless thee;
and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
and his greatness is unsearchable.”

Getting My House In Order!

As For Me and My House used with permission Doorstop Verses

I’m getting my house in order,
I’m cleaning up the grime
gonna get rid of the things
that are just a waste of time.

I’m clearing out the closets,
throwing away all my stuff
gonna toss out the frivolity
and get rid of the useless fluff.

I’m going from room to room,
until all my idols I uncover
gonna give every one away
so my God ~ I can rediscover.

Then I’m going to spend,
my free time in the Word
I’ll be picking up my Bible
and getting closer to my Lord.

My New Year Prayer ~ 2013

Ring in New Year by Matt Gruber free photo #4493

I pray that this New Year,
will ring in God’s peace
I pray for a renewal of  every heart
that all hatred would cease.

I pray for all the innocent,
and for those who desire to kill
I pray for a longing in every heart
to come to know God’s will.

I pray for the helpless people,
and for those who live in sin
I pray for a hunger in every heart
that will let Jesus live within.

I pray for all who are hurting,
and for those who cause the pain
I pray for a thirst in every heart
so Jesus in their lives can reign.

I pray peace will ring in this year,
and all hatred would truly end
I pray for everyone to understand
Jesus is their eternal friend.

A Confident New Year ~

A Confident New Year ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A New Year is before me,
I know not what it brings
but I have confidence . . .
God’s in control of all things.

I don’t know what is ahead,
the trials of each new day
but I have confidence . . .
Jesus will show me the way.

I may not fully understand,
what the New Year will hold
but I have confidence . . .
He is fitting me to His mold.

I may have incredible gain,
or suffer enormous loss
but I have confidence . . .
it all leads me to the cross.

A New Year is before me,
I know God’s in control
for I have confidence . . .
His love will renew my soul!
