Salvation’s Healing Balm ~

He takes the broken strings,
wrapped around our heart
binds them with His love
and offers us a new start.

He knows our inward pain,
He sees our troubled mind
and gives the repented one
a new life in Him to find.

He takes our dishonor,
the sum of our disgrace
and wraps around our souls
the arms of His loving grace.

He offers consolation,
remembers our sins no more
heals us from our carnal wounds
then opens up pardon’s door.

He reconciles us to Him,
fills our stony hearts with calm
He soothes our shamefulness
with salvation’s healing balm!

Repent, Repent, Repent ~

What ever happened to,
the old man on the street . . .
holding his sign warning
everyone that he’d meet?

There was a truth to be told,
a new kingdom was to come
and he was not too worried
about offending anyone.

Most people mocked him,
but, he didn’t feel any shame
for he wasn’t seeking after
worldly fortune or fame.

He wasn’t a rich man,
in fact he looked quite poor
but the riches that he had
were eternal and forever more.

What happened to the old man,
whose message rang a bell?
Repent ~ Repent ~ Repent
or you’ll go straight to hell!

~~~~~~

Mark 1:15

“And saying, The time is fulfilled,
and the kingdom of God is at hand:
repent ye, and believe the gospel.

My Heart Grieves ~

My Heart Grieves ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My heart grieves,
as this nation falls
for it no longer heeds
God’s righteous calls.

It has all but turned,
away from His grace
our leaders no longer
seek His divine face.

Man has succeeded,
to remove God’s laws
I grieve for a nation
now in Satan’s claws.

We’ve come a long way,
in a very short span . . .
went from in God we trust
to ~ we don’t give a damn.

My heart grieves,
for this country’s fallen soul
but, I know God still . . .
can heal and make it whole!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

The Candle of My Soul ~

Love candle by Russell Matin free photo #1004

Lord light the wick,
to the candle of my soul
so I can peer into . . .
each crevice, every hole.

Let Your light shine,
on any leftover sin
that is still hiding
unrepented, deep within.

Turn up the heat,
keep fanning the flame
until I call out . . .
each sin by its name.

Let Your light expose,
in my heart, let it reveal
every evil notion
I still try to conceal.

Turn up the heat,
keep fanning the flame
until I call out . . .
each thought by its name.

Lord light the wick,
to the candle of my soul
until forgiveness  . . .
fills up each gaping hole!

Bless These United States ~

Lord, Bless these United States,
bring about Your peace
let Your love shine bright
long past this lit up night.

When the celebration’s over,
and the sky once more turns dark
I pray that in the morning light
this country will be contrite.

Let us once again become,
a nation that is under God
let this day of freedom’s right
bring back Your heart’s delight.

This once great Godly nation,
can change its course today
so, I pray that You’ll incite
a return to You tonight!

~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people,
which are called by my name,

shall humble themselves,
and pray,

and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;

then will I hear
from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,

and will heal their land.”

Our First Love ~

let-us-return-to-the-lord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Let us return to our First Love,
into the arms of everlasting grace
let our steps be healed and restored
let us earnestly seek God’s face.

Let us repent from our sins,
examine ourselves in His light
let us return to our First Love
with all our soul and might.

Let us turn to the Word of God,
for our path and instruction
let us return to our First Love
for the Way and true direction.

Let us lift our hearts and minds,
give unto God our very soul
let us return to our First Love
so we can once again be whole!

Lamentations 3:40

“Let us search and try our ways,

Where’s Your Peace?

the-prince-of-peace used with permission IBible Verses

Where is your gift of peace,
where do you keep it . . .
is it found in a bottle of booze
or that cigarette you just lit?

Where is your gift of peace,
how many pills does it take
how many drugs do you need
till you no longer shake?

Where is your gift of peace,
when will the violence end
when will you stop hurting
your family and your friends?

Where is your gift of peace,
how much longer will you look
to the world for the answers
and not in the Good Book?

Where is your gift of peace,
where do you keep it . . .
how much longer from God
will you keep your sin a secret?

Jesus, is the Prince of Peace,
He’s your strength in all things
but you must turn to Him . . .
and confess to Him everything.

Then you will find the calm,
of God’s eternal peace . . .
and from these worldly things
in Jesus, you will be released!

Isaiah 9:6
King James Version

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:

A Pure Heart ~

God Looks at the heart used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, create in me a pure heart,
a conscience that is clear
a mind confident in You
not one, full of doubt or fear.

Let me not succumb,
to my own selfishness
so I may come to You
with a clean consciousness.

Lord, give me eyes to see,
ears so that I may hear
the Holy Spirit showing me
whenever temptation nears.

Help me to live honestly,
not breaking Your moral laws
let my ethics be principled
not full of worldly flaws.

Lord, whenever I backslide,
may I repent and confess
so on my very soul
a pure heart You can impress!

Sin City ~

Sin CIty ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus came not to condemn,
but to save us from our sin
to free us from the bondage
of the lusts that live within.

But, the flesh fights the spirit,
and sin often comes into our life
bringing the desires of this world
yet, leaving us with inner strife.

The works of the flesh are clear,
they are written in the Bible . . .
many of them are so difficult
for us to tame or even bridle.

But we’ve got to stay away from,
sexual immorality of any kind
jealousy, envy and indignation
must not fill the heart or mind.

We mustn’t bow to other gods,
or conjure up an evil host
and with drinking and partying
we’re no longer to be engrossed.

We must put away contention,
our anger and our wrath
and all of our selfish ambitions
we must send packing down the path.

The sins of the flesh are written,
for every eye to see . . .
and we must repent of them
or in sin city we’ll always be.

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:19-21
King James Version

“Now the works of the flesh are
manifest, which are these; Adultery,
fornication, uncleanness,
lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft,
hatred, variance, emulations,
wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness,
revellings, and such like: of the
which I tell you before, as I have
also told you in time past, that they
which do such things shall not inherit
the kingdom of God.”

Blessing Upon Blessing ~

Blessing Upon Blessing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Blessing upon blessing,
God wants to give
He wants you to repent
so He can forgive.

God wants your heart,
He wants your soul
in Him He wants you
to be complete and whole.

Mercy upon mercy,
God wants you to receive
He wants your faith
so in Him you’ll believe.

God wants your troubles,
He wants your prayers
He wants you to trust Him
with all of your cares.

Glory upon glory,
God wants you to know
He wants your love
so His peace can grow.

God wants your battles,
He wants your deeds
He wants you to give
Him all of your needs.

Blessing upon blessings,
God wants you to accept
His mercy and grace
for the tears you’ve wept!

If We the People . . .

AMERICA THE LAND THAT FORGOT FREE PHOTO BY PAULE PATTERSON #3234

If we the people,
of the USA . . .
would humble ourselves
and pray.

Then God would,
forgive us our sin
and bless these states
once again.

If we the people,
were to seek His face
and admit to Him
our sinful disgrace.

Then God would,
heal our land
and united – under Him
we would again stand.

If we the people,
would repledge our trust
and see that His laws
are fair and just.

Then God would,
give us a new start
and restore to Him
our nation’s heart.

If we the people,
of the USA . . .
would only – be humble
and pray!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14
King James Version

“If My people who are called by My name
will humble themselves, and pray and

wicked ways, then I will hear from
heaven, and will forgive their sin and
heal their land.”

The Storm Maker

BW Storm by Danielle Hartland free photo #1374

He is the storm maker,
He stirs up the seas
He is the force behind the wind
He’ll bring the world to its knees.

He is the voice in the thunder,
He’s calling all to repent
He is the lightning in the skies
on His existence ~ He won’t relent.

He is the quake in the earth,
He’s the tremor in the mountain
He  is the scorch on the desert
He’s the only life-giving fountain.

He’s the searing heat of the sun,
He is global warming . . .
and He wants the world to heed
to His repeated warning.

He is the Alpha and Omega,
the Creator of all things
and soon upon this earth
His judgments He’ll bring!

Spotless ~

Love by Reinhard Komanapalli free photo #2729

When my heart is humble,
and self is not in the way
that is when I know . . .
it’s time for me to pray.

When my heart is pure,
and my sins I’ve confessed
that is when I know . . .
just how much I’m blessed.

When my heart is full,
of His mercy and His grace
that is when I know . . .
His favor I shall embrace.

When my heart is chaste,
and of my shame I repent
that is when I know . . .
my sins no longer can torment.

And when my heart is spotless,
cleansed from all the stains
that is when I know . . .
in my life ~ my Savior reigns.

thou wilt prepare their heart,

A Mournful Spirit

How to Wreck Your Life by Kyle Reed free photo #10094

Lord, give me a mournful spirit,
as my sins rise to the surface
let me feel the pangs of anguish
for being to You ~ a disservice.

I know I have hurt You,
how disloyal  to You I’ve been
now I see through the darkness
and recognize the pain of my sin.

I once thought I was wealthy,
but now I know that I am poor
I thought I could squeak my way
into heaven’s back door.

But, this could never happen,
for I have broken Your heart
and unless I am truly repentant
from You ~ I’ll always be apart.

So, I am bowing down before You,
my tears are asking You to forgive
all the disfavor I have brought You
for my life to You ~ I want to give.

Lord, bless me with Your comfort,
come and bring my heart relief
while I express to You my sorrow
for causing You . . . so much grief!

For they shall be comforted.”

Down Here ~

DSC02709 BY SALVI PIXS FREE PHOTO #3345

When will people come to know,
you can’t find happiness here on earth
when will they understand
down here, there isn’t anything of worth?

Why do people search so hard,
to find happiness that is not real
why can’t they see the truth . . .
that their lives Jesus came to heal?

When will people come to know,
that only God can bring them peace
when will they understand
down here, they’ll never find release?

Why do people busy themselves,
with worldly wealth and ungodly things
why do they not want to see . . .
the love and hope that Jesus brings?

When will people come to know,
there is no happiness to be found
when will they understand
down here, to Jesus they must be bound?

No wonder there is so much grief,
so many who are hurting
for there are still too many souls
we need to be converting!

Repent ~

The words I write,
I do believe . . .
and it’s my prayer
that you will receive.

The message Jesus,
wants me to tell
determines if you’ll go
to heaven or hell.

Now for some,
this may seem stern
but, God wants me
to share my concern.

Repent right now,
of your sin . . .
and in your heart
invite Jesus in.

Get on your knees,
ask for forgiveness
let the Holy Spirit
to you be a witness.

Lift up your hands,
praise your Lord
walk in His ways
then sin no more!

Straight Out of Hell ~

One day all you love,
everything you hold dear
will topple stone by stone
burying you in great fear.

You will see destruction,
like no other kind . . .
and you will never again
have peace of mind.

Soon there will be an end,
to all things as you know
and like a nomad . . .
you’ll have nowhere to go.

The signs have been clear,
for years you have seen
so many fearful sights
coming onto the world scene.

Wars, famine, earthquakes,
nations fighting each other
crisis’ here, disasters there
troubles across every border.

This is just the prelude,
to what is clearly ahead . . .
and it will fill your heart
with terror and true dread.

There is a day soon coming,
when the sun will turn red
as the Antichrist starts
his world-wide bloodshed.

The moon will turn dark,
the stars will fall from the sky
the heavens will stop rotating
all the waters will become dry.

There’ll be distress all around,
confusion will cause hearts to fail
for the fear that’s before them
looks like it’s straight out of hell.

The world will be perplexed,
great nations will fall and tumble
there will not be left one soul
that can live and still be humble.

But, you needn’t worry,
none of this will you have to see
but first you must repent of your sin
so that Jesus can set your soul free!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 21:7

“And they asked him, saying, Master, but when
shall these things be? and what sign will there
be when these things shall come to pass?”
