Examine My Heart Lord ~

Lord, search my heart,
from the inside out
tell me where You find
places of fear and doubt.

See if You see in me,
any remaining skepticism
put into my heart
by religious dogmatism.

Lord, pull in the reins,
of my heart today
harness them to follow
Your righteous ways.

Yank hard if You must,
so closer to You I’ll turn
jerk ’em if You have to
so in hell I’ll not burn.

Lord, check the fruit,
for You, I am bearing
if any be rotting . . .
be quick with Your paring.

Make sure all my doings,
are being done for You
oh, Lord examine my heart
till for You it proves true!

~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:10

I the Lord search the heart,
I try the reins, even to give
every man according to his ways,
and according to the fruit
of his doings.”

Living By Grace ~

grace-reigns-in-life_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Living by grace,
isn’t a license to sin
instead it’s a purging
of the old man within.

It’s life changing,
altering and evolving
each day our hearts
need to be transforming.

Saved by grace,
isn’t a pass to sinfulness
instead it’s a path
to Godly righteousness.

It’s a call to holiness,
a life of victory
it’s having the power
over Satan’s trickery.

Living by grace,
isn’t a pass or license
to keep on sinning . . .
is abiding in defiance!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 6:1

“What shall we say then?
Shall we continue in sin,
that grace may abound?”

Seeking God’s Counsel ~

Seeking God's Counsel ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I need counsel,
when guidance I seek
I turn to God’s Word
then I let it speak.

For its full of wisdom,
so divinely conveyed
and I know it is God
who I need to obey.

His Word won’t cause,
me to go astray
for it reveals to me
the Life and the Way.

I trust where it leads,
I’m sure it will show
the righteous path
God wants me to go.

God’s Word is my compass,
its full of His direction
pointing me to my final
glorious destination!

~~~~~~~~

“Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel,
and afterward receive me to glory.”

Draw Us Nearer Lord ~

Find Rest CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Draw us nearer Lord, unto Thee,
take us closer into You
hold our hands and lead us
to all things good and new.

Dear Lord, we need Thee,
there’s nothing we can do
without the strength coming
from the joy of knowing You.

Oh Lord, our hope is in Thee,
guide our lives every day
help us to not wander far
from the true, righteous way.

Draw us nearer Lord, unto Thee,
let our hearts not have concern
as we wait with expectancy
for the day of Your return!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:8
King James Version

“Draw nigh to God,
and he will draw nigh to you;”


Trusting In Jesus ~

I Will Put My Trust used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Put your trust in Jesus,
you, He will not disappoint
place your faith in Jesus
make Him your vantage point.

He will give you the insight,
to discern the truth from lies
and you will see all things
in and through His eyes.

Trust not in mankind,
or the deceit that they tell
place not your confidence
in the peace, they try to sell.

Place no trust in the world,
do not think things will bring
joy and happiness
to worldly riches do not cling.

Do not trust even yourself,
let not pride get in the way
from the righteous path
do not deviate or stray.

Place your assurance in Jesus,
keep His Word in you alive
do not think for one minute
without Him, you’d survive.

Put your trust in Jesus,
hold onto Him, ever tight
place your faith in Jesus
never let Him out of your sight!

Psalm 40:4
King James Version

“Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust,
and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.”

Fruits of Love ~

Rooted by Jeff Boriss free photo#5262

Plant your roots in the Bible,
water them every single day
feed upon the Word of God
grow in the righteous way.

Nurture yourself in the Bible,
let Jesus’ grace take a firm hold
then you’ll produce fruits of love
beautifully, bountifully bold.

Establish yourself in the Bible,
firmly set down your foundation
let the roots of your faith
be grounded in your salvation.

Plant your treasures in heaven,
be rooted in the Kingdom to come
pray for the Holy Spirit’s indwelling
so to root-rot you won’t succumb!

Ephesians 3:17
King James Version

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,”

Seeking God First ~

Seek Ye First 2

I’m seeking God first,
before I do anything else
I will be looking unto Him
not to my wretched self.

I’ll be seeking His kingdom,
for my daily bread
focusing on the destination
of the glory that lies ahead.

I’m seeking in my Bible,
what He has for me today
I’m asking Him to show me
His true and righteous way.

I’m going to discover,
the path that He has for me
I’m going to attempt to try it
with all my physical energy.

I’m going to seek God,
with all my heart and soul
I am going to make Him
my life’s one and only goal.

I’m going to put God first,
before anything else . . .
no one will come between us
not even my old wicked self!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:33
King James Version

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.”

It’s Not Easy ~

It's Not Easy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s not simple,
this Christian walk
it’s not easy
this Christian talk.

People think,
I’m a religious freak
people insist
I’m tolerant weak.

It’s not easy,
this Christian road
it’s not fun
when others goad.

I must admit,
it’s laborious
for this Christian walk
to be victorious.

But, I don’t mind,
what others may say
for I know . . .
Jesus is the only way.

It’s not easy,
to walk the talk
it’s not acceptable
to talk the walk!

~~~~~

Ephesians 2:10
King James Version

“For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ

Jesus unto good works,
which God hath

before ordained that we
should walk in them.”
