As The New Year Unfolds ~

As the old year departs,
and the new one arrives
let us all show our thanks
to the One who provides.

Let us all worship,
His almighty name
so to His goodness
our lips will proclaim.

As the calendar peals,
one page after another
let us all give praise
to our heavenly Father.

Let us all sing,
over each new season
lest we forget
the blessing of freedom.

As the new year unfolds,
and the old one leaves us . . .
with everything we’ve got
let’s not forget the One we trust!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 103:1-2

“Bless the Lord, O my soul:
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits:

The Object of My Faith ~

The object of my faith,
is Jesus and no other . . .
with anything or one else
I don’t even want to bother.

For, all other devices,
are just diversions
and all other gospels
are just perversions.

So, I keep my focus on,
what is my eternal goal
not that which will bring
damnation to my soul.

For, this world is full of,
all kinds of spiritualness
but, in Jesus I have found
truth and righteousness.

Jesus is the only object,
in which to put our trust
for, faith without His grace
alone cannot save us!

John 1:29

“The next day John seeth
Jesus coming unto him,
and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh away
the sin of the world.”

Always Something To Be Thankful For ~

There is always something,
to be thankful for
all you have to do . . .
is be willing to explore.

If you will open up,
your heart and your mind
all kinds of blessings
you will be able to find.

Some are so small,
they don’t get our attention
but, for each of them
God has a good intention.

Some are so obvious,
you don’t need to search far
for everyone can see them
from right where they are.

Whether our blessings
are big or if they are small
we need to be thankful . . .
to God who supplies them all.

Yes, there’s always something,
for us to be thankful for
and we need to be grateful
so God can send us more!

Make a Joyful Noise ~

Come all my friends,
come one and all . . .
let’s gather together
and let our praise fall.

Let’s make a noise,
to God that’s joyful
let’s sing why we are
thankful and hopeful.

Let’s loudly proclaim,
our love for Him
let’s tell why our cups
overflow from the brim

Let’s sing of our salvation,
the Rock of our strength
lets not keep our elation
from others at arms-length.

Come all my friends,
let us all assemble
so to the world . . .
Jesus we may resemble!

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 truly, forever 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!

~~~~~~~~~

“And having food and raiment

Thankful In Every Season ~

You don’t need a season,
to be thankful . . .
every day of the year
you can be grateful.

You can all year-long,
bless God with your praise
your gratitude to Him
you can daily raise.

It doesn’t have to be,
just on Thanksgiving day
your gratitude to God
you can always display.

You can sing anytime,
to Him your appreciation
it does not have to be . . .
a holiday celebration.

Whether you are rich,
or if you may be poor
for and in everything
let your thanksgivings pour.

You can be thankful,
every day of the year
for your gratefulness . . .
God always wants to hear!

who daily loadeth us

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!

Hopefully, Joyful ~

Lord, once again
You proved to be faithful
and once again to You
I am truly grateful.

For, You have taught me,
how to cast my cares
onto You with my pleas
and my thankful prayers.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be trusting
and to my aide today
You faithfully came rushing.

You assured me,
for me You’d be here
to ease all my anxiety
and alleviate my fear.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be loyal
tis why today . . .
I’m hopefully, joyful!

In His Strength ~

When troubles waters,
start to churn and swirl
before my faith . . .
can begin to spiral.

To my Lord,
I take my distress
and with His strength
I am blessed.

When my worries,
start to push and pull
before my faith . . .
becomes void and null.

To my Lord,
I take my praise
and in His strength
I am not fazed.

When troubled waters,
are all I can see . . .
I pray to my Lord
to strengthen me!

God Has A Time For Everything ~

God has a time,
for everything
and for every one
new season’s He brings.

There’s a time of peace,
and a time of bleakness
a time of spiritual health
and a time of sickness.

There’s a time to rise up,
and a time to regress
a time of fearfulness
and a time to onward press.

There’s a time of hope,
and a time of testing
a time of great faith
and a time of wrestling.

There’s a time to praise,
and a time to mourn
a time to rejoice
and a time to be reborn.

For every thing,
God has a reason
a time for all things
in their due season!

Rejoice Forever More ~

If we were to give,
thanks for everything
we would have joy
no matter what life brings.

If we were to pray,
without ever stopping
we’d have God peace
in our heart’s throbbing.

If we were to be,
always prayerful
we’d remain in Jesus
always faithful.

If we were to seek,
God’s will each day
we’d be on our knees
whenever we pray.

If we are thankful,
to God when we implore
then we will rejoice . . .
with Him forever more!

~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5.16-18

Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus
concerning you.

Life’s Demands ~

Lord, sometimes I get exhausted,
with all of life’s demands
sometimes I get so tired
following everyone’s commands.

For, I would much rather,
just spend time alone with You
with my Bible and commentary
the only two things in view.

Lord, sometimes I get fatigued,
just thinking of all I’ve to do
sometimes I am overwhelmed
meeting time lines, coming due.

For, I would so much rather,
just sit and listen to . . .
praise and worship songs
about my love for You.

Lord, sometimes I get weary,
thinking about the day ahead
for, I would so much rather  . . .
just stay praying to You in bed!

One Day ~

One day the heavens,
will begin to sing . . .
their praises to God
along with every living thing.

One day every nation,
and all the people of
will worship their Creator
for His mercy, grace and  love.

One day all the sheep,
will sing jubilantly their praise
to God their Father
for the Son He did raise.

One day the meek and needy,
will stand with the poor
and sing their praises
to God on heaven’s shore.

One day everything,
moving or breathing . . .
to Jesus their Lord and  Savior
will forever their praises sing!

and power, be unto him
that sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb
for ever and ever.”

Whatever is of a good report,
that which brings God praise

are full of God’s power and love.

to our faith and hope
are the things that will help us
in this world to better cope.

no matter the reason.

all of the time
He talks to me . . .
through my rhymes!

Singing In The Rain ~

In The Shadow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today, there is a storm
but, I’m still going to sing
no matter how much rain
on my life it may bring.

I will leap and I will jump,
though each and every puddle
for under my Father’s wings
I will securely huddle.

If lightning were to strike,
my Father will protect me
if the thunder comes to roar
under His wings I’ll safely be.

No matter how hard it pours,
or how sizeable the drops
in my Father’s shadow
I will stay until it stops.

Today, on me it’s raining,
but, I am still going to sing
because I know I am safe  . . .
under His Almighty wings!

I love loving Him too
I love that He loves
every one of you!
