Clouds~

Sometimes there’s a cloud,
hanging over me . . .
no matter where I look
despair is all I see.

I ask God to remove,
the gloom in my way
but, it remains no matter
how hard I try to pray.

The feeling is somber,
disheartening to say the least
and I know it is coming
from satan that old  beast.

For he wants me to be,
discouraged and joyless
he loves to make me feel
rejected and hopeless.

Lord, sometimes there’s a cloud,
dampening my view
but it simply dissipates . . .
the more I think of you!

within me
thy comforts delight my soul.”

A New Comandment ~

a-new-comandment-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A new commandment,
for you to do . . .
to love others as much
as Jesus loves you.

You must put away,
envy, greed and strife
if others are to see
Jesus’ love in you life.

You need to be the light,
exposing the true way
love must be the motive
behind the words you say.

You need to be honest,
about Jesus’ great love
how much He hates sin
as does His Father above.

A new commandment,
we were all given . . .
with love we need to tell
why it is we are forgiven!

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.”

Sifted ~

sifted-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Reaped from the field,
ready was I . . .
to meet my Savior
and give faith a try.

Just like wheat,
needing to be threshed
I found myself separating
from the things of the flesh.

Little did I know,
I too needed to be sifted
until every imperfection
was raised and lifted.

Then along came satan,
my faith he tested
but on Christ Jesus
my salvation rested.

Reaped from the field,
now I’m fully converted
for to satan lies . . .
I’ve been amply alerted!

~~~~~~~

Luke 22:31-32

“And the Lord said,
Simon, Simon,
behold,
Satan hath desired
to have you,

that he may sift
you as wheat:

But I have prayed
for thee,

that thy faith fail not: and
when thou art converted,
strengthen thy brethren.”

God Has A Hold of Me ~

god-has-a-hold-on-me-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God has a hold of me,
He has me in His hand
if someone trips me up
He’ll help me again to stand.

God has His eyes on me,
He knows wherever I go
if any one misleads me
the way back He will show.

God has His ears on me,
He hears my every cry
if I fall for satan’s tricks
my regrets He’ll not deny.

God has a heart for me,
He loves me for who I am
if anybody steers me wrong
He’ll get me out of the jam.

God has a hold of me,
from His hand I can not slip
there’s not one person who  . . .
can snatch me from His grip!

John 10:29

My Father,
which gave them me,
is greater than all; and no man

Getting Through the Narrow Gate ~

getting-through-the-narrow-gate-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

If we’re to get through,
the narrow gate . . .
we need to work on
our stance and gait.

We need to keep,
our heads held high
we need to keep
Jesus in our eyes.

We need to run,
with endurance
we need to walk
with assurance.

We need to hold,
our shoulder’s back
we need to ward off
satan’s every attack.

We need to keep,
sin’s weight off
we need not care
if others scoff.

If we’re to get through,
the narrow gate . . .
we must keep our souls
pointing straight!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

Age of Rejection ~

Age of Rejection ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

We are living in,
the age of rejection
a time where we see
from God a defection.

It’s an era of change,
a time of redirection
from the Truth and Way
we’ve lost the connection.

It’s a movement,
of rebellion and pride
where our sinful lusts
we no longer hide.

It’s a real revolution,
it is not an illusion
for Satan has control
of all of the confusion.

We are living in the age,
of  times perilous . . .
for so many hearts to God
have turned cold and callous!

~~~~~~

“This know also,
that in the last days
perilous times shall come.”

So Many Who Need Jesus ~

So Many Who Need Jesus ~ CHRISTIan poetry by deborah ann

So many needing,
to be forgiven
so many who . . .
are evil driven.

So many without,
God’s love and grace
so many who  . . .
after the devil chase.

So many dying,
an eternal death
so many who . . .
need Jesus’ saving breath.

So many living,
without hope
so many who . . .
can’t see mercy’s scope.

So many needing,
to be saved
so many who . . .
to sin are enslaved!

God Sees All ~

God See's it All ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God sees everything,
there’s nothing hidden
He sees every person
who is evil driven.

He sees the wicked,
the trouble they cause
He sees from boasting
they never take a pause.

He sees the ungodly,
set up their snare
He sees their hatred
erupt and flare.

He sees the sinful,
devise evil demands
He sees they follow
satan’s commands.

God sees the unrighteous,
their evil, dark ways
He sees their future . . .
come judgment day!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 10:11-14

” He hath said in his heart,
God hath forgotten:
he hideth his face;
he will never see it.

Arise, O Lord; O God,
lift up thine hand:
forget not the humble.

Wherefore doth the wicked
contemn God? he hath said
in his heart, Thou wilt
not require it.

Thou hast seen it; for thou
beholdest mischief and spite,
to requite it with thy hand:
the poor committeth himself
unto thee; thou art the
helper of the fatherless.”

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?”

Grace Is a Dirty Word ~

Grace is a Dirty Word ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Grace is a dirty word,
the devil, he hates it
for there isn’t any room
in his plans for it to fit.

He knows it gives power,
to those who are weak
he knows God’s mercy
is not just for the meek.

He hates the Gospel,
of faith through grace
he despises the fact
this truth we embrace.

He detests the control,
grace bestows on us
it piques him to know
in God we put our trust.

Grace is a dirty word,
the devil knows so well
that those who have it . . .
wont’ be joining him in hell!

~~~~~~

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

Satan’s Defeat ~

Satan's Defeat ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He is subtle
he is sly
he is cool
he is spry.

He is elusive,
he is real
he is raw
he is steel.

He is evil,
he is mean
he is wicked
he is lean.

He is cunning,
he is roaring
he is sleek
he is imploring.

He is bad,
he is awful
he is subtle
he is dreadful.

He is Satan,
he’ll be defeated
when with God
all is completed!

~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:3

“But I fear, lest by any means,

Destroying The Enemy ~

He comes unexpectedly,
he pounces when all is still
he leaps out of nowhere
so our thoughts he can steal.

He is quick and oh, so sly,
he is constantly deceiving
he tells us bold face lies
to keep us from believing.

He seeks to devour,
he stalks us night and day
he is the stumbling block
on the righteous way.

He is menacing,
he makes our flesh weak
he is evil and wicked
our souls he eagerly seeks.

He is our greatest enemy,
he must be destroyed
and the Word of God
on him must be deployed!

AWOL ~

AWOL ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

As soldiers of God,
we mustn’t be at ease
we can’t go and do
whatever we please.

We must always be,
in conflict mode
there’s no down time
in our battle code.

Our assigned posts,
we can never leave
in our daily fight
there is no reprieve.

We need to be ready,
with our battle plans
we must always obey
His fight commands.

As soldiers of God,
we mustn’t go AWOL
lest into Satan’s hands
we will surely fall!

Saving Light ~

Saving Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I pray those in the dark,
may see Your saving Light
I pray they will come to know
it’s with Satan that they fight.

I pray they will find the Truth,
so they can seek the Way
I pray Your mercy and favor
will cause their hearts to sway.

I pray their eyes be opened,
to the darkness of their deeds
I pray they will come to know
it is the devil who misleads.

I pray their ears will hear,
the Good News that You sent
I pray to Your love and grace
they will give their consent.

Lord, I pray for those under,
Satan’s bondage and control
I pray they will come to know
only You can save their soul!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 26:18

“To open their eyes, and to turn them
from darkness to light, and from the
power of Satan unto God, that they
may receive forgiveness of sins,
and inheritance among them which
are sanctified by faith that is in me.”

No Room For Jesus ~

No Room for Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our government today . . .
no longer in our schools
are we allowed to pray.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our courtrooms today . . .
for the ten commandments
they have taken away.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our society today . . .
for the laws of morality
are filled with man’s decay.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our homes today . . .
there’s too many distraction
keeping Him at bay.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our country today . . .
for most no longer follow
the Life, Truth and Way!

Gear Up ~

Armor Up ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Now more than ever,
we need to prepare . . .
the shield of our faith
we must always wear.

We must always keep on,
the helmet of salvation
hold onto to the sword
without any hesitation.

We need to be buckled,
with the truth around us
so that in God . . .
we’ll always put our trust.

We need the breastplate,
of righteous in place
for it’s the only way
we will finish the race.

We mush put on,
the full armor given
so to the devil’s ploys
we won’t ever give in.

Now more than ever,
we must put on our battle gear
lest in these last days . . .
we’ll be overcome by fear!

“Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand

I Don’t Want Religion ~

a-good-church CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I don’t want a religion,
that’s cold and impersonal
I want to have an experience
that’s eternally, irreversible.

I don’t want to go to a church,
that’s entertaining and fun
I want a place where I can learn
how from Satan, I can run.

I don’t want a pastor,
that’s amusing and witty
I want a man of God . . .
who’ll stir up the nitty-gritty.

I don’t want with the world,
to form a bond or  friendship
I want to meet with those
who want a true fellowship.

Lord, I don’t want to be religious,
just to go through the motions
I don’t want a religion . . .
where sinning is an option!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 20:28

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves,
and to all the flock, over the which
the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,

I’m Sick and I’m Tired ~

I’m sick of all the murder,
I’m tired of the senseless deaths
I’m sick and tired of every killer
taking away another’s last breath.

I’m sick of all the pedophiles,
I’m tired of all the abuse
I’m sick and tired of child incest
for which there is no excuse.

I’m sick of sexual orientation,
I’m tired of alternative lifestyles
I’m sick and tired of being told
I’m a bigot because I profile.

I’m sick of the pornography,
I’m tired of the sexual deviant
I’m sick and tired of the courts
being progressively lenient.

I’m sick of all the abortions,
I’m tired of the slaughter
I’m sick and tired of killing
God’s future sons and daughters.

Lord,  I am sick and I am tired,
of sin of every single kind
but, mostly I’m sick about . . .
what Satan’s done to man’s mind!

Be Sober, Be Alert ~

Be Sober, Be Alert ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Tonight I want to warn you,
about the devil’s tricks . . .
and some of the masked ways
he loves to get his kicks.

He has a bag of treats,
filled with plenty of sweets
he uses them to tempt us
as he roams on our streets.

Inside his goodie bag,
are perversions of all kinds
some will warp our souls
others with deprave our minds.

The devil is pretty sneaky,
his treats are his disguises
he offers them with a smile
so we’ll believe in all his lies.

He is bold and he is daring,
on any door he will knock
looking to deceive all he can
as he goes around the block.

So tonight I am warning you,
be sober, vigilant and alert . . .
for the devil he will devour you
and you’ll end up being his dessert!

Closer to God ~

Rest the Devil ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The closer to God I am,
the more meek I need to be
the nearer to Him I get
the more He wants of me.

The faster I understand,
the quicker I can see
surrendering all to God
will make the devil flee.

The deeper I know God,
the greater is my sin
more serious are the ones
I’ve  hidden away from Him.

The earlier I can turn,
from being double-minded
the sooner I’ll not be
by Satan’s lies blind-sided.

The humbler I become,
the closer to God I get
the nearer to Jesus I am
the more my sins, I regret!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:7-9

“Submit yourselves therefore to God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
 and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep:
let your laughter be turned to mourning,
and your joy to heaviness.”

A Verse a day,
will keep the devil away
a Word or two

a Bible study plan
will lead and command.

A Verse a day,
will keep fear at bay
a Word or two
will power you through.

A Scripture learned,
will help when concerned
a Bible nearby
will keep Jesus close by.

A Verse a day,
is a daily must . . .
for it will direct you
in God, to always trust!

Greater is He ~

Greater is He ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, yesterday Satan,
tried to take me down
oh, how he wanted me
to hit hard on the ground.

His arrows came flying,
from out of no where
they were fiery and quick
meant more than to scare.

He knew the exact target,
before he took aim . . .
he wanted to leave me
weak, broken and lame.
.
But, on Your promise,
I took my stand . . .
and shot those arrows
right out of his hand.

I did what You said
told him to flee . . . .
that GREATER were You
who lives inside of me.

Lord, yesterday Satan,
tried to take me down
but, on Your Word . . .
I stood my ground!

Rise Up ~

I Will Rise ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Whenever you fall,
you must rise up again
no matter the struggle
or the amount of pain.

Lest Satan our enemy,
will fight to keep you down
he will do anything . . .
to pin you, to the ground.

Whenever you tumble,
get right back on your feet
no matter the plunge
or you will suffer defeat.

For the devil our adversary,
likes to keep you in chains
he will jump at the chance
to hold you in his restrains.

Whenever you stumble,
when into darkness you fall
Jesus will light your way
if on His name you call!

~~~~~~~

Micah 7:7-9

” Therefore I will look unto the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation:
my God will hear me.

I shall arise; when I sit in darkness,
the Lord shall be a light unto me.”
