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.”

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
King James Version

and turn again to the Lord.”

His Soldiers ~

sky-cross-romans-8-37-dc1 used with permission Darrell Creswell

Weary hearts,
anxious minds
come to Me
I’ll make you mine.

Hide Me within,
your heart today
I’ll be with you
I’ll show the way.

Tired soldiers,
fighting strong
trust in Me
I’m never wrong.

I hear your fatigued,
battle cries
I see the tears
in your eyes.

But rest assured,
the fight we will win
the day I come . . .
to put an end to sin!

whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth,
and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:”

I’m Waiting ~

I Will Wait for the Lord used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook
I’m looking,
looking for the day
looking for a sign
when Jesus ~ takes me away.

Yep, I’ll be leaving,
getting me out of here
and I know that day
is so ever near.

I’m going,
no one is gonna stop me
I know it won’t be long
till that cloud I finally see.

Until then I’ll be praying,
for the soul’s of man
knowing God is doing
all that He can.

I am waiting,
for the God of my salvation
until then I’m trusting Him
no matter the duration!
