To Be Happy ~

to-be-happy-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To be happy,
we need to be poor
up in heaven
our treasures we’ll store.

To be happy,
we need to be mournful
over sin
we’ll be remorseful.

To be happy,
we need to be meek
God will be
the first One we seek.

To be happy,
we need to hunger
in God’s Word
we’ll want to linger.

To be happy,
we need to be thirsty
we need to put
Jesus firstly.

To be happy,
we need to be merciful
we’ll need to live
a life purposeful.

To be happy,
we need a pure heart
from God’s ways
we’ll not depart.

To be happy,
we need to be a peacemaker
we’ll need the Holy Spirit
as our icebreaker.

To be blessed,
we need to be these things
than we’ll be happy . . .
no matter what life brings!

Matthew 5:3-12

Blessed are the poor in spirit:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek:
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do
hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful:
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called
the children of God.

Blessed are they which are
persecuted for righteousness’ sake:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye,
when men shall revile you,
and persecute you,
and shall say all manner
of evil against you falsely,
for my sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad:
for great is your reward in heaven:
for so persecuted they the prophets
which were before you.”

If We’re to Be Meek ~

if-were-to-be-meek-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If we’re to be meek,
but, still be strong . . .
then we must believe
God won’t steer us wrong.

If we’re to be humble,
but, still be bold . . .
then we must let God
into our heart’s to mold.

If we’re to be poor,
but, still be wealthy
then we must remain . . .
to God’s ways healthy.

If we’re to be gentle,
but, still be confident . . .
then we must trust God
is always competent.

If were to be meek,
humble, poor and gentle
then we must live a life . . .
of faith, trust and self-denial!

The Poor In Spirit ~

Blessed Are by  Joe Cacazos free photo #5225

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me see my own depravity
show me all my iniquities
my absolute spiritual poverty.

Give me the understanding,
to recognize my sinful condition
let me dwell on my wickedness
till I feel the sting of conviction.

Show me my lustful appetites,
the habits of selfishness
let me look upon my heart
till I see my own helplessness.

Let me see my sinfulness,
what’s not pleasant in Your sight
examine and judge me
for Your laws are always right.

Shut up in me Your loving grace,
lock up in me Your tender mercy
let me exercise my full obedience
till Your love flows out of me.

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me be, for You hard pressed
let me see my absolute poverty
so I may be ~ heaven blessed!
