Sometimes We Soar ~

Sometimes We Soar ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Sometimes we soar like eagles,
sometimes we flutter about
sometimes our faith is strong
sometimes we are full of doubt.

Sometimes we reach the mountain,
sometimes in the valley we stay
sometimes to the truth we cling
sometimes to the way we stray.

Sometimes we have victory,
sometimes into sin we fall
sometimes we weather the storm
sometimes we sink in the squall.

Sometimes we stay the course,
sometimes we get off track
sometimes we win the battle
sometimes we fall to the attack.

Sometimes we have strength,
sometimes we feel weak and faint
sometimes we sit and wait
sometimes we have no restraint.

Sometimes we walk by faith,
sometimes we lose our direction
sometimes we try to be faultless
but only Jesus brings perfection!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.”

My Soul’s Destiny ~

Run the Race used with permission from Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I’ve entered the race,
I’m going for the gold
to win it I’ll need . . .
to be brave and bold.

If I’m to finish well,
I’ll need to work out
my faith in Jesus
and shed any doubt.

I don’t want to run,
out of energy or steam
lest the crown of life
I won’t be able to redeem.

My eyes are on the future,
I’m in it for the long-haul
I want to hear Jesus say . . .
My servant, who was faithful.

My heart is set to prevail,
so to claim my victory
because heaven for me . . .
is my soul’s destiny!

1 Corinthians 9:24

“Know ye not that they which run
in a race run all,
 but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.”

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 05.08.15 ~


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!

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

Philippians 3:14

“I press toward the mark for the prize
of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

The Cost of Endurance ~

Track-Running-Race_Sven-Hoppe_i1 from common photo archive

The Bible says to run the race,
with endurance in our steps
to jump over any obstacles
to pass by the risky objects.

This race is not an easy one,
there’s a cost for enduring
most of us can’t stay the course
because sin can be so alluring.

But, we are called to this race,
to be patient and persistent
and in our daily run with faith
we must be pressure resistant.

Before we step onto the track,
we must warm-up our endurance
then work-out any resistance
so we’ll run with God’s assurance.

There will be many roadblocks,
each day we’ll face head on
but, if we trust in God’s power
to them we won’t be drawn.

In this race we’ll have to give up,
things that bring us pleasure
but, when we set them aside
we’ll add to our eternal treasure.

The faithful race is long and hard,
no one said it was trouble-free
but, if we keep our eyes on the goal
we’ll run it filled with joy and glee!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 9:24-25
King James Version

“Know ye not that they
which run in a race run all,

but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.

And every man that striveth
for the mastery is temperate

in all things. Now they do it
to obtain a corruptible crown;

but we an incorruptible.”
