The Land of Light and Life ~

The Land of Light and Life ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m going to the land of light,
where darkness will not be
I’m going to walk with the living
and God’s full glory I will see.

I’m going to the land of life,
no more death will I know
I’m going to walk the streets
where all the saved souls go.

I’m going to the land of peace,
of life blissfully ever-after
I’m going to walk with the Lord
forever, there on after.

I’m going to the land of love,
where there’ll be no more hate
I’m going to walk right through
the straight and narrow gate.

I’m going to the land of joy,
where there’ll be no more fears
I’m going to walk the halls
in the mansion of no more tears!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:13
King James Version

“For thou hast delivered
my soul from death:

wilt not thou deliver
my feet from falling,

that I may walk before God
in the light of the living?”

Born of Rebellion!

Born in a state of rebellion,
all wanting to go his own way
no, not one ~ seeks the Lord
all the sheep have gone astray.

Born with a sinful condition,
all think they have what it takes
no, not one ~ seeks the Lord
no one sees their own mistakes.

Born with a stubborn heart,
all know what is right or wrong
No, not one ~ seeks the Lord
no one hears redemption’s song.

Born with a disobedient soul,
all think they are fine and good
no, not one ~ seeks the Lord,
no one does what they should.

All have turned from the Lord,
all have gone their own way
but, by the grace of our Savior
each one can be saved today!

Isaiah 53:6
King James Version

“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.”

Saved By That Connection!

Cross Pathway by Kevin Carden free photo #19122
Once I walked the course,
that paved my way with sin
my steps were bound to take me
where Satan was sure to win.

I followed my own desires,
and lusted after even more
I strolled the streets of greed
and knocked on resentment’s door.

I pursued the work of darkness,
and ate up all the fame
I labored in the halls of envy
with covetous as my aim.

I ensued after my own pleasure,
with Satan beneath my feet
my gratification kept me marching
to his disobedient beat.

I became skillful in the world,
and paved a road for my delight
until I came upon a bridge
that exposed a saving light.

In the span of my awareness,
I saw just how ugly I became
and it was at this very moment
I felt the sting of my own shame.

Oh, how grateful now I am,
to be saved by that connection.
now my path is paved and planed
with God’s design and intention.

Galatians 5:17
King James Version 

“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit,
and the Spirit against the flesh:
and these are contrary the one to the other:
so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”

The Cross of Compassion ~

The Cross of Compassion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I cried the day I met Jesus,
I wailed, I bawled, I groaned
I cried learning how He died
I wept, I sobbed, I moaned.

I cried when I found out,
He was crucified  to save me
I cried when I discovered
in His death I was set free.

I cried when I first knew,
by His death I was justified
I wept, I wailed, I sobbed
the day I heard Jesus died.

I cried when I received,
the gift of His eternal passion
I cried when I found my hope
on the Cross of His compassion.

I cried the day I envisioned,
the blood stains on His face
I wept, I sobbed, I moaned
thanking God for His grace!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 26:75
King James Version

“And Peter remembered the word of Jesus,
which said unto him, Before the cock crow,
thou shalt deny me thrice.
And he went out, and wept bitterly.”

Survivor!

Locked and Chaned Doors by Balazas Toth free photo @9193

I’m a survivor,
I beat the odds
no longer trapped
in Satan’s claws.

Freed from evil,
the effects of sin
ever since Jesus
in my life came in.

Released from hell,
in that awful pit
no longer stuck
in the mire and grit.

He took my sins,
carried them away
then in my heart
He came to stay.

Loosened my soul,
from the ugly stain
opened heaven’s door
unlocked the chain.

I’m a survivor,
Jesus saved me
from sin’s darkness
I am set free!

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

2 Peter 2:4
King James Version

“For if God spared not the angels that sinned,
but cast them down to hell, and delivered
them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;”

Rescued ~

Resuced ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus came with a tender heart,
and extended a loving hand
from the miry clay, He lifted me
and He helped me up to stand.

I was soiled and I was stained,
with the grime of my sin
and He knew that I needed
to be cleansed from within.

He saw that I was lost,
how my life lacked His direction
and He knew in the darkness
I couldn’t see my imperfection.

So, He shined His light on me,
and it broke through the crust
that my heart was embedded with
until in Him I learned to trust.

He was the voice of my hope,
His promises I began to hear
He rescued me from the pit
and made His pathway clear.

Jesus came with a tender heart,
and He helped me up to stand
from the miry clay, He lifted me
and now holds me in His hand!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 69:2
King James Version

“I sink in deep mire, where there is no
standing: I am come into deep waters, where
the floods overflow me.”

Holding the Line

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
