Philippians 3:14



A Soul Conquering~

It takes courage,
a spirit willing to go the length
it takes confidence
letting God supply the strength.

It takes commitment,
a determination to do God’s will
it takes patience
a willingness to wait and be still.

It takes persistence,
a resolve to keep pressing on
it takes diligence
for the faithful race to be won.

It takes perseverance,
a heart willing to go the distance
it takes a dedicated mind
able to handle the resistance.

It takes focus,
eyes always kept on the goal
it takes Jesus . . .
to have a conquering soul!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:14

I press toward
the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God
in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 12:1-2

Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses, let us lay
aside every weight, and the sin
which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience
the race that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before
him endured the cross, despising
the shame, and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.

Philippians 3:14


No Wonder We Need ~

Life is full of steep hills,
valleys plenty deep
no wonder we need . . .
a Good Shepherd’s keep.

With all the uncertainty,
each day we must face
no wonder we need . . .
a sufficient dose of grace.

Our fears can be many,
our worries limitless
no wonder we need . . .
God’s mercy measureless.

With all the challenges,
we daily go through
no wonder we need . . .
God our hearts to renew.

Life is full of storms,
with winds so unexpected
no wonder we need . . .
to run until perfected!

Into Jesus ~

Into Jesus,
I’m pressing in
I’m confident
this race I’ll win.

I’m moving on,
going for the goal
I’m letting God
my life control.

Into Jesus,
I’m going farther
I’m growing faith
trusting harder.

I’m pressing on,
marching onward
I’m keeping my eyes
looking forward.

Into Jesus,
I’m going deeper
I’m making Jesus
my soul’s keeper!

I’ve Not The Power ~

In myself,
I haven’t the power
to outrun satan
when he’s out to devour.

So, my spiritual sneakers,
I am putting on . . .
to insure this race
can be victoriously won.

I’ll pull up my laces,
God’s Word will be the knot
so to satan’s snares
off guard, I’ll not be caught.

With my Bible verses,
I’ll plan each of my steps
so I can remain diligent
in following the concepts.

In myself,
I haven’t the power
but, with God’s strength
satan, I will overpower!

~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:8

“Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary
the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking
whom he may devour:”

Philippians 3:14

“I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 119:32

I will run the way
of thy commandments,
when thou shalt
enlarge my heart.”

Faith Stretching ~

faith-streching-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, today . . .
I’ll be exercising
for my faith can use
some real stretching.

I’ll be doing,
some strength training
so towards the mark
I can keep straining.

My perseverance,
seems a little wobbly
so I’ll be working on
a more trusting strategy.

I’ll need to do,
some heavy lifting
so my Bible I’ll pick up
to keep me from drifting.

My endurance,
I will be addressing
so into the goal . . .
I can keep on pressing.

Lord, today . . .
my faith I’m exercising
and I need Your Spirit
to do the energizing!

It’s A Fiery Battle ~

It's A Battle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s a blazing battle,
staying in the faithful race
there’s a lot of fiery darts
everyday we have to face.

It’s a daily dying,
to our selfish need
it’s an hourly test
one we mustn’t cede.

It’s a damning contest,
Satan were up against
it’s a daily must
to put on our defense.

It’s a holy conflict,
between the old and new
it’s a deadly decision
the winning is up to you.

It’s a hostile war,
we mustn’t get fatigued
it’s a matter of trust
lest we all be deceived.

It’s a winning battle,
each day we can fight
if we just remember . . .
to keep Jesus in our sight!

No Wonder ~

No Wonder ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Life is full of storms,
valleys plenty deep
no wonder we need . . .
a Good Shepherd’s keep.

With so much uncertainty,
every day that we face
no wonder we need . . .
a sufficient supply of grace.

Our fears can be numerous,
our worries limitless
no wonder we need . . .
God’s mercy, measureless.

With various challenges,
we daily go through
no wonder we need . . .
God’s strength, each day anew.

So often we’re discouraged,
lost in all the confusion
no wonder we need . . .
the Holy Spirit’s infusion.

Life is full of storms,
winds so unexpected
no wonder we need to keep . . .
our eyes, heavenly directed!

If Only ~

be-humble ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

If we’re to have a bright future,
we must willingly follow God’s plans
if we’re going to walk in faith
we must put our trust in His hands.

If we’re not to be weary,
we must give God our distress
if we’re to find rest for our souls
we must be willing to onward press.

If we’re to have strength and power,
we must first admit we are weak
if we’re to soar like eagles
we must learn to be humble and meek.

If we’re trying to find real peace,
we mustn’t give in to fear or doubt
if we’re wanting to see God’s light
we must shut all the darkness out.

If we’re to have true victory,
we must run the race so we can win
if we’re to receive our reward
we must repent from our every sin!

Keep on Keeping On ~

Keep On ~ Keeping On ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some days it is so easy,
to run the faithful race
for I know at the finish line
I’m going to see Jesus’ face.

When my eyes are on the goal,
of meeting Jesus at the end
I run with confidence
around every twist and bend.

Then there are the days,
when I am not up to the race
for I’m running in my pride
not in the favor of His grace.

It’s funny how on those days,
every hurdle becomes a trap
and I feel like giving up
before I make another lap.

I know to run the good race,
on Jesus, I need to concentrate
if I’m going to see the insides
of heaven’s pearly gates.

I know to be dedicated,
to keep on ~ keeping on . . .
I’ll need God’s strength
and the Holy Spirit’s brawn!
