Embracing The New ~

Embracing the new,
getting rid of the old
is freeing and liberating
makes us for Jesus bold.

It’s finally saying goodbye,
to former desires
and letting the Holy Spirit
ignite into our souls a fire.

Taking off the weight,
of spiritual depression
allows Jesus to make
a lasting impression.

It’s doing away with self,
and letting Jesus in
it’s going out everyday
not falling back into sin.

Doing away with the old,
for what is new . . .
is letting Jesus become
a part of you!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.

Sticky Note to God ~01.30.19 ~


My Soul Restored ~

My soul God restores,
whenever I stray
He leads me straight back
onto the narrow way.

He tells me where,
I have gone wrong
shows me the places
I do not belong.

My soul God restores
with His mercy and grace
for, His arms long to keep me
in His loving embrace.

He knows I’m weak,
He knows I’m frail
He knows sin in my life
must not ever prevail.

My soul God restores,
He brings it to repentance
for, His love for me . . .
is fierce and relentless!

The Weight of Sin ~

The Weight of SIn ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The weight of sin,
lies heavy
its high cost
is like a levy.

It will crush,
the lost soul
for hefty is
sins final toll.

Sin’s curse,
is most grave
for death is
its eternal grave.

Sin only wants,
to ensnare
it only brings
everlasting despair.

The weight of sin,
will kill us . . .
unless in Jesus
we believe and trust!

~~~~~~~~~

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life

A New Creature ~

A New Creature ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I am a new creature,
for I am forgiven
ever since my life
to Jesus I have given.

I am now set free,
from my past behaviors
and behind God’s back
are all of my failures.

Any kind of temptation,
I am competent to flee
now that the Holy Spirit
dwells inside of me.

I am not ashamed,
nor am I considered guilty
for Jesus paid the debt
for my every iniquity.

I am a repenter,
I’ve been transformed
ever since the day
to Jesus I conformed!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore if any man
be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.”

Digging Down ~

Digging Down ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I’m digging down,
going way deep inside
all my selfish desires
I’m going to put aside.

It’s going to get dirty,
as I clear out the way
but, it must be clean
if I want You to stay.

I’m clearing a path,
by repenting of the sin
and all the wickedness
still hidden deep within.

In my heart of hearts,
way deep in my soul
tis where I want You
to take complete control.

Lord, I’m digging down,
going way down inside
making ready a place
where You can abide!

Discount Religion ~

Discount Religon ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A discount religion,
is being offered today
with no talk about sin
or spiritual decay.

No need for repentance,
heaven everyone will reap
making the death of Jesus
look cut-rate and cheap.

Bargain basement prices,
tolerance is the big sell
with a shoddy guarantee
no one will end up in hell.

Eternal life to one and all,
no matter your life-path . . .
all you have to do is “love”
so not to face God’s wrath.

A discount religion,
is being offered today
and sadly it is leading
so many sheep astray!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:3

“But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve
 through his subtilty, so your minds
should be corrupted from the
simplicity that is in Christ.”

Sticky Note From God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deboran ann ~ 07.15.15 ~


Feel Good Religion ~

Dead Works ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Dead - IBible Verse

I love the feel good religion,
like the one you hear today
I like knowing God loves me
no matter what I do or say.

I like giggling and laughing,
as the pastor jokes around
I like all the modern music
with that big band sound.

I like the laid back attitude,
the easygoing, off beat tempo
I love that the mega building
is progressive and contempo.

I like the main message,
about being richly blessed
I like the fact that my sins
I no longer have to confess.

I like not having to repent,
or change my ways or views
I like I’m not told anymore
what to God, is or isn’t taboo.

I love the feel good religion,
like the one you hear today
but, I love Jesus more . . .
so I think from it, I’ll stay away!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:13-15

” For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

And no marvel; for Satan himself
is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers
also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.”

Who Can We Sway ~

LetYourLightShine ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Who can be saved,
who can find the way
to the truth . . .
who’s heart can we sway?

The poor, the needy,
the contrite in spirit
the criminal, the crook
the morally illicit.

The heartbroken, the sick,
the lonely and heavy-laden
the prodigal, the wanderer
the weak and the shaken.

The meek, the lowly,
the forsaken desperate
the oppressed, the hopeless
the impossible degenerate.

The remorseful, the sad,
the penitent and regretful
to these and many more
we need not be neglectful!

Jesus, Died for You ~

For God So Loved used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I am loved . . .
do you know, you are too
for, Jesus loves everyone
no, matter what they do.

He loves the rebellious,
the sinner and the thief
He loves the sad, the forlorn
the ones, buried in their grief.

He loves the repulsive,
the mean and the hateful
He loves the wild, the unruly
those who are not peaceful.

He loves the liar,
the dishonest and the deceitful
He loves the fraud, the fake
all those who are unfaithful.

He loves the repentant,
the wandering, questioning one
He loves the remorseful
over the wrongs, they’ve done.

Jesus loves me,
I know, He loves all of you
if He forgave a sinner like me . . .
I know, He’ll forgive you too!

If Only ~

be-humble ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

If we’re to have a bright future,
we must willingly follow God’s plans
if we’re going to walk in faith
we must put our trust in His hands.

If we’re not to be weary,
we must give God our distress
if we’re to find rest for our souls
we must be willing to onward press.

If we’re to have strength and power,
we must first admit we are weak
if we’re to soar like eagles
we must learn to be humble and meek.

If we’re trying to find real peace,
we mustn’t give in to fear or doubt
if we’re wanting to see God’s light
we must shut all the darkness out.

If we’re to have true victory,
we must run the race so we can win
if we’re to receive our reward
we must repent from our every sin!

No Longer Guilty ~

No Longer Guilty ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

At the foot of the cross,
my tears mixed with shame
and I felt such deep regret
as I cried out His name.

“Lord, I know my sins,
have caused You so much pain
please come into my life
my soul, my heart and reign.”

Waves of guilt passed by,
one-by-one they marched on
I looked to God and praised Him
for the gift of His beloved Son.

As I prayed for forgiveness,
confessing to Him my every sin
I could feel His love and mercy
purging the shame I felt within.

I was redeemed  by  grace,
that day Jesus died for me . . .
and there at the foot of the cross
He declared me ~ no longer guilty!

Just Like Peter!

Messed Up by kelly Sikkema free photo #16451

Lord, how many times have I denied You,
unlike Peter, I know of more than three
yet, just like Peter all I really wanted
was to follow and go along with Thee.

Lord, how many times did I reject,
the promises I found in Your Word
for, when faced with life’s impossibilities
I acted as if these truths, I never heard.

Lord, how many times did I refuse,
the path You had laid out for me
for, when my selfish pride took control
Your plans I didn’t want to see.

Lord, how many times did I decline,
Your mercy and endless grace
for, when I found  true contentment
it wasn’t You, who I embraced.

Lord, how many times have I denied,
too many to count, I do fear
that is why today I offer You . . .
my repentant, regretful tears!

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

Matthew 26:75
King James Version 

“And Peter remembered the word of Jesus,
which said unto him, Before the cock crow,
thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out,
and wept bitterly.”

I Have A Cure!

i_am_not_ashamed_of_the_gospel CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I have a fever,
I’m burning up inside
I have a condition
that isn’t going to subside.

I have an illness,
a heart sickening sense
and there is a reason
my affliction is so tense.

I have a malady,
a God-given Holy fear
that the end for some
will soon be very near.

I have an infection,
a real spiritual need
to tell of a treatment
all sinners must heed.

I have a diagnosis,
an analysis to man’s pride
I use the Word of God
as my verdicts guide.

I have a cure,
the only way to get well
is to accept Jesus as your Savior
so not to be tormented in Satan’s hell!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 5:24
King James Version

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word,

He Gets Me . . .

worship1_bmp

He gets me,
when no one else does
He loves me . . .
for no reason but ~ because.

He knows me,
like no other ever could
He understands me
just like I knew He would.

He sees me,
wrestling with temptation
He hears me
calling out for redemption.

He acquits me,
when to Him I relent
Jesus forgives me
when from sin I repent.

He gets me,
even when I don’t
He loves me . . .
even when other’s won’t!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:15

“For we have not an high priest which cannot

The Burden of Religion ~

The Burden of Religion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, please set me free . . .
from the burden of religion
cast aside the smoke and mirrors
that are clouding up my vision.

Break down the wall of greed,
shatter the egotistical foundation
that is in Your church today
so I’ll not be led into temptation.

Sever the chains of works,
tear apart the man-made laws
crush under Your foot
each statute and every clause.

Pull me out from under,
all the whistles and the bells
take way all my earthly idols
lest I may find myself in hell.

Lord, please set me free . . .
from being just religious
for I know without repentance
there will be no forgiveness!

~~~~~~~~

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten:

It’s No Wonder ~

One Way used with permission Creatoin Swap

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so much pain today
no one seeks the Lord
all have gone their own way.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so many broken homes
no one stays around
all wander off and roam.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so much excessive greed
no one reads the Word
all don’t see salvation’s need.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so many who are lost
no one acknowledges their sin
all eyes are off the Cross.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so much turmoil going on
no one trusts in God
all His commandments are now gone.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so much pain today
no one repents of their wickedness
all deny their own decay!

What’s Under Your Robe?

Blessed ar Those used with permission IBible Verses

Sin isn’t just the kind,
observed with the eyes
there can be so much more
no matter the disguise.

People may point out,
the obvious sin in our life
but it’s the sin that’s unseen
that will cause eternal strife.

Sin that can’t be seen,
that we keep deep within
doesn’t go unnoticed
though we think it’s hidden.

For God sees our hearts,
the sins we’re harboring
He knows every deep secret
that we are nurturing.

We need to check our robes,
look under what it covers
there may be sin in us . . .
He wants us to discover!

The Sin of Bitterness~

Bitterness is A Sin ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I saw the look of bitterness,
staring at me in the face
it held no compassion
nor any mercy or no grace.

It’s beady, steely eyes,
look right past my soul
making it clear to me
resentment was its goal.

I could see into the gaze,
of someone who can’t forgive
and the cause of the problem
how they constantly relive.

They say if looks could kill,
right now I’d be dead . . .
for the look of bitterness
has an evil, toxic head.

Bitterness is a sin,
destructive in every way
its roots need to be destroyed
for hearts and souls are its prey!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:15
King James Version

“Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God;
lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you,
and thereby many be defiled;”

God Will Prevail ~

dont-give-up

It’s not about the fall,
or the number of times we fail
it’s about getting back up
even though we are frail.

It’s not about the troubles,
that we get ourselves in
it’s about our decision
whether to continue in our sin.

It’s not about the breakdown,
or the times we come apart
it’s about if we emerge
with repentance in our heart.

It’s not about the wheat,
that goes through the sieve
it’s about the chaff that remains
and the ones who still believe.

It’s not about the fall,
or the number of times we fail
it’s about the times we rise
knowing God’s mercy will prevail!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 24:16

“For a just man falleth seven times,
and riseth up again: but the wicked
shall fall into mischief.”
