Bold Praise ~

I can’t carry a tune,
don’t have a great voice
but for my Savior
I still sing and rejoice.

I don’t know the melody,
haven’t got me the ear
but it doesn’t stop God
my praises to hear.

I can’t read the music,
don’t recognize the chords
but I still carry on
worshiping my Lord.

I don’t have the rhythm,
can’t understand the beat
but I keep on rejoicing
at my Savior’s feet.

I can’t carry a tune,
a note I can’t hold
but, my praise to God
is still always bold!

Sing unto him,

Thank You Heavenly Father ~

Thank you Father,
for being there
for making me
to You aware.

Thank you Father,

Thank you Father,
for hearing my plea
for showing mercy
to a sinner like me.

Thank you Father,
for sending Your Son
for His grace to finish
what You begun.

Thank you Father,
for all You do . . .

You choose to pursue!

I am purified.

I am loved,
I am at peace

forever grateful!

Sticky Note to God ~10.11.18 ~


Singing In The Dark ~

It’s easy to sing,
when the day is trouble free
it’s easier to give accolades
to God, when full of glee.

It’s easy to sing,
when all is looking bright
it’s easier to praise God
when bathed in His light.

It’s easy to sing,
when all is going well
it’s easier to let our gratitude
for God, to grow and swell.

It’s easy to sing,
when  happy and content
it’s easier for us to God
our thanksgiving present.

But, they who still sing,
in the darkness of the night
are those who praise God . . .
no matter what’s in their sight!

Where is God my maker,

A Thankful, Grateful Heart ~

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is appreciative
one that to all Your blessings
is attuned and sensitive.

Let it be a heart,
that sings its daily praise
let it be my heartfelt gratitude
that to You I earnestly raise.

Let me have a heart,
truly thankful for all things
no matter what in my life
You should choose to bring

Let my heart flow with,
the rivers of Your peace
so my appreciation to You
I may continually release.

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is steadily hopeful
let it be the heart of one . . .
who is to You truly grateful!

One Blessed, Single Plateful ~

On Thanksgiving day this year,
before the turkey starts roasting
my thanks, I will be singing
for the dinner I’ll be hosting.

I will set the dining table,
with the gratitude I feel
before anyone comes
to feast upon the meal.

I will spread the hope,
that I’m feeling inside
before I even serve . . .
the food that God supplied.

I will polish up on all,
the reasons I’m thankful
before I even dish up
one blessed, single plateful.

On Thanksgiving day this year,
before the food I present
I will let everyone know . . .
just why I am so content!

~~~~~~~~~

Thankful For the Right Reasons ~

Lord, as I enter into,
the season of Thanksgiving
may I do so without . . .
any qualms or misgivings.

May I be grateful,
for all You’ve given me
especially for the things
I am still yet to see.

May I be satisfied,
with all I have got
may I be content
with what I have not.

May I be appreciative,
for Your every blessing
may I be at peace with . . .
those I’ll not be getting.

Lord, as I enter into,
Thanksgiving’s season
may I be truly thankful
for all the right reasons!

When My Heart is Troubled ~

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
I gratefully go to God
with my pleas and prayers.

When my heart is faint,
when my mind has unrest
I pray for God’s peace
upon my first request.

When my heart is heavy,
when my mind has doubt
I pray ceaselessly believing
God will work things out.

When my heart is weary,
when my mind’s full of fear
I pray asking my Father
to drawn me close and near.

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
at Jesus’ feet I leave them
with my thankful prayers!

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by
prayer and supplication

your requests be made

Grateful Every Day ~

grateful-every-day-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We don’t need a special day,
to show we are thankful
for every day to God . . .
we need to be grateful.

We can come together,
any day of the year
and share the cause behind
our joy and good cheer.

We can give our thanks,
no matter the season
a special holiday
needn’t be our only reason.

We can enter into,
the gates of thanksgiving
anytime, anywhere
without a single misgiving.

For, God doesn’t care,
when or how we show
our thankfulness to Him
He just wants to know!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 100:4

“Enter into his gates
with thanksgiving,
and into his courts
with praise:
be thankful unto him,
and bless his name.”

The Bread, Way, Truth and Life ~

the-bread-way-truth-and-life-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

As we gather,
on Thanksgiving Day
lets not make light
when our thanks we pray.

We need to be,
genuinely grateful
for all things
we must be truly thankful.

We need to express,
our thanksgiving
with praise and joy
sans any misgiving.

We need to thank,
our Father above
for sending His Son
out His pure love.

We need to express,
our joy and elation
for the freedoms
of our salvation.

We need to convey,
to God each day
our thanks for the Bread
the Truth, Life and Way!

~~~~~~~

John 6:35

“And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me shall
never hunger; and he that
believeth on me shall
never thirst.”

I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.”

Beyond Thanksgiving Day ~

beyond-thanksgiving-day-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Thanksgiving is more,
than food and football
it goes way beyond . . .
turkey on the table.

Thanksgiving isn’t about,
just one meal we share
it goes way further . . .
then a dinner prayer.

Thanksgiving is about,
each day of the year
making sure our praise
God is able to hear.

Thanksgiving isn’t about,
a single day with family
it goes way past . . .
our sated apathy.

Thanksgiving is about,
being thankful for all things
no matter what in this life . . .
to your table that it brings!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication

More Than We Can Imagine ~

more-than-we-can-imagine-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

More than we can understand,
more than we can conceive
is what God can do for those
who trust in Him and believe.

More than we can ever think,
more than we can ever dare
is what God can do for those
who give Him, their every care.

More than we can fathom,
more than we can measure
is what God can do for those
who in heaven lay their treasure.

More than we can imagine,
more than we can recognize
is what God can do for those
who their thanksgiving vocalize.

More than we can understand,
more than we can describe
is what God can do for those
when in Him, their hearts abide!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 11:33

“O the depth of the riches
both of the wisdom and

are his judgments,

and his ways
past finding out!”

Tis The Season For Thankfulness ~

tis-the-season-for-thanksgiving-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

Tis the season . . . .
for inward reflections
a time to share
outward expressions.

A time to be,
for all things thankful
a time to convey to God
just why we’re grateful.

Tis the season . . .
for inner thoughtfulness
a time to thank God
for His kindheartedness.

A time to see,
how much we’re blessed,
a time for our gratitude
to be openly professed.

Tis the season . . .
for thankful contemplation
a time to say Thank You God
whatever our situation!

“Let us come before his presence
with thanksgiving,

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
