Sticky Note From God ~03.17.19~


A Warning ~

Don’t be fooled,
though saved by grace
to these truths . . .
we must embrace.

Do not go down the road,
of sexual temptation
rather to immorality
have no association.

Don’t continue to sin,
or stay on the wide way
rather confess and repent
right now without delay.

Do not drift or fall back,
into godless living
rather into righteousness
keep yourself pressing.

Don’t fall victim,
to satan’s attacks
rather flee for your life . . .
and don’t look back!

~~~~~~~~~

Titus 2:11-12

“For the grace of God that
bringeth salvation hath
appeared to all men,

Teaching us that, denying
ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly,
in this present world;”

Where’s The Zeal ~

Where’s the zeal,
where did it go . . .
where’s the burning desire
the narrow way to show?

Where’s the zest,
where’s the utterance
why do we now have
for sin tolerance?

Where’s the willingness,
where’s the dedication
where’s the readiness to lead
others to true salvation?

Where’s the eagerness,
where’s the thirst
why is the word sin
now on the blacklist?

Where’s the salt and light,
where did they go . . .
why has repentance
hit a new low!

1 Timothy 4:1

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall
depart from the faith, giving heed
to seducing spirits,
and doctrines of devils;”

Scripture Mutations ~

Scripture Mutaltion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I hear about God’s love,
and tolerance
I hear about wealth
and being prosperous.

But, what I don’t hear,
theses days any more . . .
is the repentance of sin
lest it cause an uproar.

I hear about God’s love,
and stewardship
I hear about the greed
among the leadership.

But what I don’t hear,
is about sin’s liberation
for the Scriptures now have
too many mutations.

I hear about God’s love,
but not of His wrath
for no one these days . . .
wants to go down this path!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 15:9

“But in vain they do worship me,
teaching for doctrines
the commandments of men.”

Take Back Your Joy ~

Lord, give back Your joy,
to those stumbling . . .
let them feel Your love
once again humbling.

Reignite in them the hope,
when they first meet You
let again Your saving light
in their life’s break through.

Let their repentant heart,
once again feel Your calm
let the joy of being saved
be again their soothing balm.

Restore in them the trust,
as when You they first accepted
renew Your mercy and grace
so again You’ll be connected.

Lord, let the contrite take back,
the joy of their salvation . . .
return unto them their state
of everlasting elation!

Psalm 51:12

“Restore unto me the joy
of thy salvation; and uphold
me with thy free spirit.”

Sticky Note to God 10.05.17


Don’t Be a Sellout ~

You can tell God you’re sorry,
ask Him for forgiveness . . .
but, without true repentance
sin, still will be your weakness.

You can try to conquer sin,
but, it is impossible to do
unless you have the Holy Spirit
and His power helping you.

You can beg and you can plea,
for your sins to be forgiven
but, without turning from them
to sin, you’ll still be driven.

You can try to stay away,
from all evil and wickedness
but, without the Light in your life
you’ll still be drawn to the darkness.

You can cry, you can weep,
over your besetting sin
but, without true remorse
over them you’ll never win.

You can try to keep sin at bay,
you can try to cut it out . . .
but, without true repentance
to sin you will still sellout!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 5:32

“I came not to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance.”

In The Lord’s House ~

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to forever dwell
there is no way . . .
I’m willing to go to hell.

For, my sins I’ve confess,
repented and turned from
by grace through faith is how
I’ll enter His kingdom.

In Your house Lord,
is where I want to be
so, for the rest of my days
I’ll faithfully follow Thee.

For, the world is full darkness,
but, You have brought me Light
Your mercy and goodness
are now always in my sight.

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to live forever
oh, how I cannot wait . . .
for us to be together!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:6

“Surely goodness and mercy
shall follow me all the days
of my life: and I will dwell
in the house of the Lord for ever.”

Sin is Still Sin ~

Oh, my worldly friends,
don’t you be deceived
the meaning of sin
is often misconceived.

Sin is still sin,
no matter what some may say
changes to the Word of God
won’t stand up on judgment day.

Sin is still dark and evil,
it’s full of greed and pride
don’t you believe for a minute
sin from God you can hide.

Sin is still vile and wicked,
it’s coveting and lusting
and in the eyes of God  . . .
all of it to Him is disgusting.

Repentance is,
what you need to do
so Jesus from your sin
can forgive and free you.

So, my worldly friends,
repent and sin no more
lest with satan your soul . . .
will till the end, be at war!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 4:17

“From that time
Jesus began to preach,
and to say,
Repent:
for the kingdom
of heaven is at hand.”

Sticky Note From God 07.02.17


The Heart that Cries ~

The heart cries,
from deep within
with the tears of joy
from the shame of sin.

It knows to God,
it deserves nothing
but, has found now
He is its everything.

The heart weeps,
deep from the soul
with tears of joy
God now consoles.

It recognizes,
the need for God’s favor
sees His mercy through
the grace of a Savior.

For, the heart mournful,
over its sins
is the heart that  . . .
Jesus truly wins!

~~~~

2 Corinthians 7:10

“For godly sorrow
worketh repentance
to salvation
not to be repented of:
but the sorrow of the
world worketh death.

When You Walk in The Light ~

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is a lot of confessing
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of acknowledging,
the sinfulness we daily fight
there is a lot of repenting
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of recognizing,
the evil we daily fight
there is a lot of conviction
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of fessing up.
to  the vices we daily fight
there is a lot to let go of
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is true repentance
when you walk in the light!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7-9

“But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light, we have
fellowship one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ
his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin,
we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness.”

The Microscope of Grace ~

hidden-sin-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Under the microscope of grace,
God sees our imperfection
and we must be willing to open . . .
up our hearts for His inspection.

Through the lens of His mercy,
He can spot our hidden sin
and we must let Him search
the crevices within.

His light will focus in on,
the darkness still inside
and we must realize from Him
there’s nothing we can hide.

With compassion and pity,
God sees us who we are
He can spot in a second
those close to Him or far.

God looks for His Son’s image,
to be reflected back at Him
and under grace’s microscope . . .
He sees through our secret sin!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 4:5
King James Version

“Therefore judge nothing
before the time,

until the Lord come,
who both will bring to light

the hidden things of darkness,
and will make manifest

the counsels of the hearts:
and then shall every
man have praise of God.”

Salvation’s Valley ~

Salvations Tears ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s pain in the valley,
regret and despair
there’s grief and sorrow
plenty of spiritual warfare.

There’s a deep darkness,
a consuming hopelessness
an overwhelming feeling
of gloom and helplessness.

There’s hope anew,
in the valley of salvation
there’s an inner discovery
a spiritual revelation.

There’s a deep refection,
a recall, a remembrance
there’s prayer and pleadings
tearful cries of repentance.

There’s pain in the valley,
but, then comes the peace
when with God  . . .
our struggle’s finally cease!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 7:10

“For godly sorrow worketh repentance
to salvation not to be repented of:
but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”

Praying for America ~

Praying for America ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Father, keep us safe,
as we celebrate . . .
our country’s freedoms
that have made us great.

Let us not go further,
down the road of sin
help us to turn from
the wickedness within.

Bring us back,
to trusting in You
give this Nation
a heart that is new.

Make us humble,
let us see our shame
so we can prayerfully
call upon Your name.

Heal our land,
scour out the pride
so You can be
once again our guide.

Father, keep us safe,
until such a time
this Nation comes out
of its downward climb!

~~~~~~

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.”

If These United States ~

If The United States ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If we want healing,
If we want our land
to once again . . .
be in God’s hand.

Then we the people,
of these United Sates
will have to confess
to our wicked mistakes.

We’ll need forgiveness,
for all of our evilness
we’ll need God to cure
our spiritual sickness.

From our evil ways,
we’ll need to depart
we’ll need to put God
back into our hearts.

If we want healing,
if we want God back in
then we the people . . .
must stop committing sin!

~~~~~~

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.”

If Walking in The True Light ~

Walking In The Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

If we are walking,
in the True Light . . .
we will be given
a new heavenly sight.

We’ll begin to see,
God’s full glory
for our past sins
we’ll truly be sorry.

For the Light brings,
unworldly clarity
as it illuminates
our soul’s impurity.

It will expose,
the filth in our heart
so God’s mercy in it
He can impart.

If we are walking,
in the True Light . . .
with spiritual darkness
we’ll not have to fight!

~~~~~~~

1 John 1:5-7

“This then is the message
which we have heard of him,

and declare unto you,
that God is light, and in him

is no darkness at all.

If we say that we have
fellowship with him, and walk

in darkness, we lie,
and do not the truth:

But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,

we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood

of Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.”

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!

He Restores Souls ~

He Restores Souls ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
He restores my soul,
whenever I stray
He brings me back
to His righteous way.

Though I may error,
His grace remains
He removes the blemish
of sins ungodly stains.

He restores my soul,
He renews my mind
His goodness and mercy
I can always find.

Though I may wander,
He’ll not turn me away
He is always there
for those who go astray.

He restores my soul,
He’ll restore yours too
just turn back to Jesus
He’s waiting for you!
