DEPLORABLE!

hillary_clinton_testimony_to_house_select_committee_on_benghazi

Did you hear the news,
I am statistically horrible . . .
in Clinton’s own words
I am grossly deplorable.

I am a phobic,
Islalmo, xeno and homo
in other words she thinks
I am an intolerable dodo.

I am a hateful bigot,
a sexist and a racist
I’m one of the unfortunate
not supporting her bases.

According to Mrs. Clinton,
I’m a disgusting basket case
oh, Father I will pray . . .
she’ll lose the upcoming  race.

Did you hear the news,
Hilary thinks I’m horrible
but, I think its her moral’s
that are shamefully deplorable!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:1-4

This know also, that in the
last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers
of their own selves,
covetous, boasters,
proud, blasphemers,
disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection,
trucebreakers, false accusers,
incontinent, fierce,
despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures more
than lovers of God;”

King James Version

This poem is based on Hilary’s Statement

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic,
you could put half of Trump’s supporters
into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’
Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic,
xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.
And unfortunately, there are people like that,
and he has lifted them up.”

Daily Grace ~

 

He Knows How To Run ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, I need a refill,
my reserve is getting low
I need a Holy Spirit stir
from my head to my toe.

Going to need a boost,
a shot of endurance
I need more strength
and some temperance.

Lord, I need a lift,
a spiritual transformation
a real pick-me-up
an increase of inspiration.

Going to need a daily dose,
of all the Gospel’s truths
if I am to fight off Satan
and all his deadly troops.

Lord, I need a refill,
of Your daily grace . . .
I need some renewing
to stay in the race!

~~~~~~~.

Isaiah 40:31
King James Version 

“But they that wait
upon the Lord shall renew
their strength;

they shall mount up
with wings as eagles;

they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

The Race Of A Lifetime ~

Track-Running-Race_Sven-Hoppe_i1 from common photo archive

The race we are running,
is the race of a lifetime
we must run it well . . .
or else we’ll be left behind.

If we’re going to succeed,
we must run it to win
the only way to victory
is to run away from sin.

For Satan is on the chase,
after our souls he is gunning
we must be sure from him
to always keep on running.

We need to stay focused,
on the goal that is ahead
we must be sober and alert
so we can be Spirit lead.

It’s a race of endurance,
not one of swiftness or speed
we must depend on God . . .
for the stamina that we need!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1
King James Version

“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 ~

Looking Unto Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m looking unto Jesus,
I’m keeping my eyes on Him
for this race I am running
I know together we will win.

The track that’s before me,
keeps going round and round
but with Jesus as my coach
each obstacle I can bound.

If I’m to go the distance,
then I’ll need a place to rest
so I’ll turn to my Savior
for strength to do my best.

As I come upon the hurdles,
thrown at me each day
I will rely on Jesus
to move them out of the way.

This race is long and hard,
there is no easy road
but with Jesus at my side
He’ll help me with my load.

I’m looking unto Jesus,
I got to keeping going straight
for if I take my eyes off Him . . .
I might miss the narrow gate!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1

“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,”

Pressing Into The Goal ~

Track-Running-Race_Sven-Hoppe_i1 from common photo archive

It’s not about a contest,
it’s about the one you enter in
for the race that’s before you
can be full of good or full of sin.

It’s not about how fast you are,
it’s about your direction
and if to the Gospel of grace
you will make a connection.

It’s not about the time you run,
it’s about pressing into the goal
and if you follow after Jesus
with all your heart and soul.

It’s not about the finish line,
it’s about how close you come
to the mark of a higher calling
and the glory of God’s kingdom.

It’s not about the winning,
it’s about your defeat and loss
and if you gained true knowledge
of why Christ died on the cross!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:7
King James Version

“But what things were gain to me,
those I counted loss for Christ.”

Those Who Wait On the Lord ~

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall ride out the storm ahead
they shall climb over any doubt
for they are Spirit lead.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall fly against the strongest gust
they shall soar above their sorrow
because in God they trust.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall run a good and faithful race
they shall not grow faint or weary
for they are filled with His grace.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall walk the talk they believe in
they shall go up against this world
and not get caught up in sin.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall arise and take their stand
they shall rise up against temptation
for they put their life in His hand.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall conquer every doubt and fear
they shall endure to the end
for they know His Kingdom is near!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31
King James Version

“But those who wait on the Lord,
shall renew their strength:
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”

Entering the Race ~

 Follow Me by Jose Fares free photo #5573

I’m putting on my sneakers,
going to enter into the race
so I’m cushioning my soul
with God’s mercy and grace.

The contest that’s before me,
seems a million-miles long
and I must trust in Jesus
if I’m going to finish strong.

With Him running with me,
I’ll stay focused on winning
the confidence He’ll provide
will keep me from sinning.

I’ll have a sense of purpose,
His love will be in my stride
I will stay true to the course
knowing He is at my side.

I’ll run with His strength,
He’ll provide the assurance
the crown of life is my prize
if I run with endurance!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 9:24
King James Version

“Know ye not that they
which run in a race run all,

 but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.”

Holding the Line

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)
