May The Lord Bless You ~

May the Lord bless you,
keep you in His stead
may He keep you safe
in the days ahead.

May His goodness,
you be reminded of
may His arms wrap you
in His forever love.

May the Lord bless you,
keep you in His watch
may He keep you secure
under His wing’s notch.

May His face shine down,
with rays of hope on you
may His gracious mercy
your heart and mind renew.

May the Lord bless you,
bring to you His peace
as all your cares . . .
onto Him you release!

~~~~~~~~

Numbers 6:24-26

The Lord bless thee,
and keep thee:

The Lord make his face
shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee:

The Lord lift up
his countenance upon thee,
and give thee peace.

Ephesians 4:23


Called To Freedom ~

Called to freedom,
not worldly bondage
called to understanding
wisdom and knowledge.

Called to liberation,
not worldly dependence
called into holy living
moral transcendence.

Called to empowerment,
not worldly subjection
called to be the Light
of Jesus’ reflection.

Called to separation,
not worldly servitude
called to be discerning
with minds daily renewed.

Called to freedom,
not worldly conformation
called into a new life
a holy transformation!

~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:1

Stand fast therefore in
the liberty wherewith Christ
hath made us free,
and be not entangled again
with the yoke of bondage.

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that
ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God.”

A Living Sacrifice ~

If you want to really find,
God’s will good and perfect
then you must give to Him
your own for Him to correct.

You will need to submit,
your heart, mind and soul
over to the Holy Spirit
so He can take control.

Then He will teach you,
all about holy living
and your whole life to God
soon you will start giving.

If you really long to be,
to God truly acceptable
if you no longer want to be
to the world’s ways susceptible.

Then you must present,
the new life He’s given to you
as a holy living sacrifice . . .
in all that you say and do!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that
ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God.”

Give Up, Never ~

give-up-never-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Don’t you quit,
give up, never
from God’s ways
do not sever.

Do not give in,
don’t succumb
a part of this world
do not become.

Don’t you depart,
get not blown away
be not that sheep
that’s gone astray.

Do not be adapted,
be not conformed
instead in Jesus
be transformed.

Don’t you quit,
but be renewed
lest you’ll have
a worldly attitude!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed
by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is
that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

To Be Like Jesus ~

To Be Like Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by Deborah Ann

To be like Jesus,
our minds need to entwine
and then our hearts to Him
will begin to align.

For us to finally put off,
our former, sinful ways
to our old worldly desires
we must daily reappraise.

Our old lustful thoughts,
must daily be transformed
our greedy attitudes
will need to be reformed.

Our minds have to be,
continuously changed
from our corrupt attitudes
we must become estranged.

To be like Jesus,
takes the Holy Spirit’s doing
it may take a lifetime . . .
but, it’s so worth our pursuing!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:22-24

” That ye put off concerning the former
conversation the old man, which is
corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

And that ye put on the new man,
which after God is created in
righteousness and true holiness.”

Transformation ~

Transformation ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

We must be willing,
to give to God our heart
before any transformation
or morphing can take part.

If we’re to undergo,
a complete radical change
our thoughts and our ways
God will have to rearrange.

To become a new creation,
isn’t something up to us
but by the power of God
as in  Him, we learn to trust.

If we are not to be,
to the world conformed
we must allow our lives
in Jesus, to be transformed.

A renewing of our minds,
is a part of the progress
we must put on the new man
and the old one suppress.

We must be willing,
to make holy living official
lest to the world we’ll appear . . .
shallow and superficial!

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye present
your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing
of your mind, that ye may prove what
is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”
