Guarding Our Hearts ~

Guarding Our Hearts ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s so important,
to guard our hearts
for God’s treasures
into them, He imparts.

For, our hearts are now,
the wellspring to life
without God’s blessings
we’d have only strife.

We need to be diligent,
to keep our hearts pure
we must remain hopeful
in our faith secure.

For,  in our hearts,
the Holy Spirit dwells
we must protect them
from the fires of hell.

We need to keep them,
with God always right
so He can fill them
with the Truth and Light.

It’s so important,
to keep our hearts guarded
lest we become to God . . .
once again hard-hearted!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 4:23

“Keep thy heart with all diligence;
for out of it are the issues of life.”

Thinking About Such Things ~

Thinking on These Things ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

 Whatever that is true,
that which shines of His light
whatever that will fill you . . .
with God’s power and His might.

Think about such things,
before you start your day
it will help keep you from
following the world’s way.

Whatever that is honest,
that which is sincere
whatever that will help you
to overcome your fear.

Think about such things,
as you go about the day
and to the world’s ideals
your soul, they’ll not sway.

Whatever that is just,
right, proper and moral
whatever that will keep you
from doing what’s immoral.

Think about such things,
all throughout your day
and to the world’s lusts
you’ll quickly turn  away.

Whatever that is pure,
undiluted and untainted
whatever that’ll keep the truth
from being contaminated.

Think about such things,
no matter the time of day
and by the worldly teachers
you will not be lead astray.

Whatever that is lovely,
beautiful and divine
whatever that brings peace
to your heart and mind.

Think about such things,
whether it be night or day
and to the world’s thoughts
your faith, will not decay.

Whatever things are lovely,
what brings to mind the Good News
whatever things give praise to God
let them be the thoughts you choose!

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

Philippians 4:8

“Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue, and if there
be any praise, think on these things.”

The Pure Word of God ~

Spend Time in The Bible Used with permission IBible VErses

Lord, give me the Word,
in its true and pure form
I want to hear how it can
still change and transform.

I don’t want it altered,
distorted in any way
I don’t want to listen to
the polluted one of today.

I want to hear the Word,
talk to me about my sin
I want to know with You
the battles ours to win.

I don’t want it watery,
diluted or thinned down
I don’t want it weakened
by changing all the nouns.

Lord, give me the Word,
in its true and pure form
You know the one I mean . . .
for lives, it can transform!

Breath of Life ~

God Breathed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Verses

I just want to breathe in,
nothing but fresh air . . .
pure, life-giving, clean
but, finding it is rare.

Instead, all I do is gasp,
at the smut, filth and muck
choking back the grime
in a world that’s gone amok.

At times, I take in a deep breath,
but find myself wheezing
so many things in the atmosphere
that to God,  are not pleasing.

The pollution man’s created,
makes it impossible to inhale
for lust, greed, and immorality
I constantly have to expel.

I just want to breathe in,
nothing but God’s fresh clean air
pure, life-giving, unpolluted
but, there’s so little left ~ out there!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 2:7
King James Version

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a living soul.”

Childlike Faith ~

Childlike Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Give me faith like a child,
without fear and doubt
where the Word of God
can root, grow and sprout.

Give me an attitude,
that believes readily
where happiness and joy
overflows steadily.

Give me childlike faith,
pure and simple . . .
one that is steadfast
not unsure or fickle.

Give me a mindset,
that to God is reachable
a mind that is open
hungry and teachable.

Give me a heart,
that is willing to obey
that humbly follows
without going astray.

Give me a soul,
that is calm and quiet
one that on God
is always reliant.

Give me faith like a child,
innocent and sweet
eagerly anticipating the day
when  Jesus and I will meet!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:25
King James Version

“At that time Jesus
answered and said,

I thank thee, O Father,
Lord of heaven and earth,

because thou hast hid these
things from the wise
and prudent,

and hast revealed
them unto babes.”

God’s Love Stays True ~

God's Love Stays True ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s love never fails,
it won’t wither or pale
God’s love stays true
makes everything new.

God’s love is firm,
though we may squirm
God’s love is patient
when we’re complacent.

God’s love is kind,
though we’re resigned
God’s love is gentle
when we’re temperamental.

God’s love is just,
though we may not trust
God’s love is pure
when we’re insecure.

God’s love never ceases,
though we fall to pieces
God’s love is hope
when we can’t cope.

God’s love never pales,
though we may fail
God’s love stays true
whilst making us new!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 31:3
King James Version

“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying,
Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love:
 therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”

Love Is ~

Masters of the Heart by Chris Kennedy free photo # 12572

Love that is . . .
patient and kind
that reaches down
touching mankind.

Love that is chaste,
pure in its thought
that humbles itself
before it’s sought.

Love that holds,
its temper still
is not angered
feels no ill-will.

Love that hopes,
is full of desire
that holds itself true
that doesn’t expire.

Love that trusts,
believes and is sure
that is forever
that which will endure.

Love that never fails,
or ceases to be
that can’t be bought
but which is free.

Love that is honest,
sincere and real
that evil and darkness
can’t conceal.

Love that comes,
from deep in your heart
that which only
the Lord can impart.

This is the love . . .
we ought to show
to each and every
person that we know!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
King James Version

“Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity,
but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things,
hopeth all things, endureth all things.”
