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.

Return ~

Everywhere I look,
everywhere I turn . . .
Lord, I see the need
for so many to return.

Return from wandering,
from going astray
return back to . . .
the Life, Truth and Way.

Everywhere I step,
everywhere I go
Lord, I notice those
just going with the flow.

Flowing with the world,
conforming to its ways
following that wide path
leading from You away.

Lord, everywhere I look,
everything I see . . .
shows me all the hearts
needing to return to Thee!

~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 24:7

And I will give them an heart
to know me, that I am the Lord:
and they shall be my people,
and I will be their God:
for they shall return unto
me with their whole heart.

When Today I See A Rainbow ~

When today I see a rainbow,
in the rainy, cloudy skies . . .
I have to ponder if it’s formed
from all of our tears and cries.

For, a rainbow can’t be seen,
unless the Son shines too
and I wonder if it holds . . .
God, surrendered hearts to You.

When today I see a rainbow,
I see a commitment once made
I have to ponder if it’s formed
of lost sheep that have strayed.

For, a rainbow can’t be seen,
unless the Son comes out too
and I wonder if it holds . . .
God, those coming back to You.

When today I see a rainbow,
I sit and I ponder . . .
the promise that God made
and I marvel at its wonder!

~~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 9:12-13

And God said, This is the token
of the covenant which I make
between me and you and every
living creature that is with you,
for perpetual generations:

I do set my bow in the cloud,
and it shall be for a token
of a covenant between me
and the earth.

Backslidden One ~

Backslidden one,
God wants you home
He no longer . . .
wants you to roam.

He wants you back,
more than you know
He promises the way
to restoration He’ll show.

Backslidden one,
God wants you back
He knows the faith
the trust you lack.

He wants to shower,
you with mercy fresh
if your sins to Him
you will confess.

Backslidden one,
today hear God’s plea
return my wanderer
come back to me!

~~~~~~

Jeremiah 3:22

Return, ye backsliding children,
and I will heal your backslidings.
Behold, we come unto thee; for thou
art the Lord our God.

It’s Not About the Guns ~

It's Not About the Guns ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s not about the killings,
or about what kind of gun
it’s about a country . . .
the Ten Commandment’s shun.

It’s not about a movement,
but about a moving away
it’s a about a county . . .
who like sheep have gone astray.

It’s not about new rules,
or our constitutional rights
it’s about a country . . .
who in sin pridefully delights.

It’s not about new legislation,
or about a regulation change
it’s about a country . . .
who from God is estranged.

It’s not about the guns,
or the legal process
it’s about a country . . .
that continues to transgress!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;
we have turned every one
to his own way; and the
Lord hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”

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.”

Time to Come Home ~

Going Home by Doug Shelton free photo from CreationSwap

Are you that prodigal,
have you’ve run away
from the truth you knew
in your younger days?

Have you left your Father,
pursued a different life
has your lust and greed
stirred up only strife?

Did you chase after money,
to live the “American Dream”
are your plans to succeed
coming apart at the seam?

Are you at the bottom,
destitute and broke
does your worldly lifestyle
have on you a death choke?

Are you tired of making,
excuses for your  shame
are you running out of people
on whom you can blame?

So if you’re that prodigal,
return to God today . . .
He will show you back
to the Life, Truth, and Way!

~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 24:7

“And I will give them
an heart to know me,

that I am the Lord:
and they shall be my people,

and I will be their God:
for they shall return

unto me
with their whole heart.”

This Heart of Stone ~

new-3

He took this heart of stone,
with its coldness deep within
hammered away the hardness
that was embedded with my sin.

He chipped away my conceit,
chiseled at all the greed
until my soul was ready
to accept the sower’s seed.

It fell upon such fertile soil,
I was ready to receive
the truth sown before me
was so effortless to believe.

My new-found faith in grace,
turned into wavering’s of doubt
I soon began to wander . . .
to shut the Lord’s Word out.

For years I denied it,
the sin, the lust, the greed
for years I defied it
the truth, the way, the need.

But this refined heart of stone,
finally saw its reckless ways
and God knew I’d return
from my drifting all those days.

And now I am a faithful sower,
I understand the heart of stone
so, I pray if you;re wandering
you too, will find your way back home!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:8

“Thou tellest my wanderings:
put thou my tears into thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?”

The Wandering and Lost ~

Wandering Ones ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Father God,
I do pray . . .
for the wandering
and lost today.

They’ve been hurt,
along the way . . .
and from Your path
they’ve gone astray.

Their hearts are broken,
their pain is for real
they’ve lost their joy
from the ache they feel.

They no longer see,
Your truth or light
the road for them
is as dark as night.

Their trust in You,
just plain ran out
and instead of faith
they live with doubt.

Father God,
I do pray . . .
You’ll bring back
all who stray!

~~~~~

Hosea 6:1
King James Version

“Come, and let us
return unto the Lord:
for he
hath torn,
and he will heal us;
he hath
smitten,
and he will bind us up
