Look Into My Heart ~

Look Into My Heart Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Heavenly Father,
look into my heart
peel back whatever
is keeping us apart.

Reveal the layers,
of my selfish pride
remove any vanity
still living inside.

Heavenly Father,
pare from my soul
all that’s keeping You
from having control.

Take away anything,
holding me back
where I am weak
take up the slack.

Heavenly Father,
unveil all keeping me
from truly knowing
the fullness of Thee!

~~~~~~

Psalm 131:1

“Lord, my heart is not haughty,
nor mine eyes lofty: neither
do I exercise myself in great
matters, or in things too
high for me.”

Our Heart’s Desire ~

Desires of the Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If we want God to give,
the desires of our heart
then from His own heart
we cannot be far apart.

For what may be in ours,
might not be in His own
as ours wants and needs
are often selfish prone.

If we want God to grant,
us our heart’s longings
then after worldly things
we mush stop yearning.

For the lusts of the flesh,
our sinful fancies
will only bring to us
eternal penalties.

If we want God to give,
the desires of our heart
then to His ways we must . . .
delight in and never part!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:4

“Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee
the desires of thine heart.

The Wicked ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

The wicked enter through,
the gate of pride and lust
worldly riches pave the path
for it’s in “things” they do trust.

They walk with the ungodly,
party with the irreligious
depravity sleeps in their beds
their covers are sacrilegious.

The wicked live in the dark,
their lives are full of greed
they look to the immoral law
to fill their wants and needs.

They do not have a future,
they keep evilness in their sight
they’re on a road of no hope
refusing to see the light.

The wicked’s end is miserable,
for eternity they’ll spend in hell
but, they who follow God’s Word
in heaven with Him will  dwell!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 1:1-2

“Blessed is the man that walketh not
in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
 nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord;
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”

Instant Gratification ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

We live in a world,
of want, want and want
and what we can’t have
just comes back to taunt.

Some have an attitude,
“of gotta’ have it now ”
no matter what it costs
“gonna get it some how.”

Borrow on the mortgage,
pay with a credit card
finding money somewhere
just isn’t very hard.

Some just cannot wait,
they need instant gratification
much to the devil’s delight
he has their full cooperation.

We live in a greedy world,
Satan will use any device
to get us what we want . . .
but oh, what the price!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 16:26
King James Version

“For what is a man profited,
if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?
or what shall a man give
in exchange for his soul?”

Where Will Your Journey End?

Straight is the Way used with permission Doorpost Verses on facebook
We are all on a journey,
only God knows to where
and on our own we are no good
for the wear and tear.

We often wander off,
the straight and narrow path
and find ourselves on the road
that will lead us to God’s wrath.

There is only one gate,
for us to enter in . . .
the other one will take us
to where we are sure to sin.

So if you’re on the highway,
of selfishness and greed
then pray and ask the Lord
to turn you back with great speed.

For the hour no one knows,
but this journey will soon end
and if you’re not on the narrow road
it will be hell  ~  just around the bend!

Matthew 7:14
King James Version

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