If You Will Seek ~

If to God you draw near,
He will hear your cry
if you confess your sins
your heart He’ll purify.

If you will seek His face,
He will hear your prayer
if you call on His name
your life He will repair.

If you return to God,
you will be restored
if with your whole heart
make Him again your Lord.

If you seek His presence,
His mercy will be found . . .
if your idols you’d remove
to Him you would be bond.

If you were to God,
draw once more near . . .
nothing in this world
would you again hold dear!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:8

Draw nigh to God,
and he will draw nigh to you.
Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts,
ye double minded.

Isaiah 55:6-7

Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
and let him return unto the Lord,
and he will have mercy upon him;
and to our God, for he will
abundantly pardon.

The Gospel of Grace ~

The Gospel of Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I believe in the Gospel of grace,
by faith and by faith alone . . .
I believe only through Jesus’ blood
the sins of mankind are atoned.

I believe grace cleanses,
the effects of evil and sin
I believe Jesus our very souls
died so them He could win.

I believe grace pardons,
the guilty and shamed face
I believe Jesus upon Himself
took the brunt of our disgrace.

I believe grace heals,
the hurt, the pain, the ache
I believe Jesus our hearts
can soften, reform and remake.

I believe grace gives rest,
to the depressed and friendless
I believe Jesus came to save
all who are lonely and hopeless.

I believe in the Gospel of grace,
by faith and nothing more . . .
I believe God’s gift of grace
redeems, heals and restores!

Ephesians 2:8

“For by grace are ye saved
through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:”

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!

of thy salvation; and uphold

Grace to The Rescue ~

Grace To The Resuce ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Grace restores,
the broken pieces
fills in the cracks
smooths the creases.

Grace heals,
the heart that aches
mends the wounds
patches the scrapes.

Grace renews,
the mind unraveled
reinforces the thoughts
that have been tangled.

Grace reaffirms,
the soul wanting
provides the strength
brings the calming.

Grace restores,
heals and renews
Grace always comes
to our rescue!

“Being justified freely
by his grace through
the redemption that
is in Christ Jesus:”

Thankful for Spring ~

Thankful for Spring ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

 Lord thank You,
for Springtime
for the harmony
heard on its chime.

For the renewal,
of the early rain
for the healing
of winter’s pain.

Lord thank You,
for Spring’s flight
for the retreat
of its early light.

For the warmth,
it lazily brings
for the melody
heard on its wings.

Lord thank You,
for Spring’s gift
for giving my face . . .
a needed Son lift!

the time of the singing of birds
is come, and the voice of the
turtle is heard in our land;

New Beginnings ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ New Birth IBible Verses

A fresh start,
new beginnings too
not just for today . . .
but, all year through.

If you let Jesus,
be your resolution
He will bring to you
a glorious restoration.

Putting behind the past,
pressing into the goal
believing in God with . . .
your whole heart and soul.

Letting Him change you,
from the inside out . . .
pushing back your fears
giving Him your doubt.

A fresh new start,
is waiting for you . . .
oh, the mighty things
Jesus wants to do!

A Psalm of Peace ~

Joy Comes  in the Morning ~ CHRISTian poetry by deboranann ~ used with permission IBIble Verser

Mourning ~ greets me,
with a peaceful Psalm
washing over me . . .
like a healing balm.

The soothing effect,
brings my heart relief
God’s tender mercies
helps me in my grief.

The ointment of peace,
repairs daunting dreams
a Psalm of peace leads me
to quiet, calming streams.

My soul finds its comfort,
in a God who’ll not forsake
who’s peace flows within me
the moment that I awake.

The salve of restoration,
mends the damage done
renews me each new day
with the rising of the Son.

Morning greets me,
with a peaceful Psalm
joy washes over me . . .
like a healing calm!

God Happens ~

GOD happens CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God happens,
in the hardest of hearts
He brings new beginning
fresh spring-like starts.

God happens,
in the broken down soul
He brings reconciliation
makes everyone whole.

God happens,
in the darkest of spirits
He brings transformation
every sin He acquits.

God happens,
in the worst of us
He restores generations
when in Him ~ they trust.

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 58:12
King James Version

“And they that shall be of thee
shall build the old waste places:
thou shalt raise up the foundations
of many generations;
and thou shalt be called,
The repairer of the breach,
The restorer of paths to dwell in.”
