A Life Selfless ~

This coming year,
make a resolution new
to put aside . . .
any bitterness still in you.

Make up a list,
of what gives you strife
then ask God to renew
His peace in your life.

This coming year,
make it your ambition
to see the Holy Spirit
gifts come to fruition.

Write down the things,
that are impairing
you from being kind . . .
forgiving and caring.

This coming year,
let your resolution be
a life selfless . . .
so to set bitterness free!

Philippians 2:3

“Let nothing be done through
strife or vainglory;
but in lowliness of mind
let each esteem other
better than themselves.”

A Critical Spirit ~

A critical spirit,
fights and bickers
you can see it in those
who are nit-pickers.

They’re known to be,
quite quarrelsome
to other’s they are
more than irksome.

A critical spirit,
can be harsh and cruel
their tongues are always
in some kind of duel.

They are selfish,
it’s their way or none
they do not care
who they hurt or shun.

A critical spirit,
can be transformed
when to God’s love
it is conformed!

Examine Me, Lord ~

keep-thyself-pure CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Examine me dear Lord,
see through my disguise
tear away the mask
expose the lust in my eyes.

Examine me dear Lord,
test my mind and my heart
point out the inner flaws
keeping us apart.

Examine me dear Lord,
pull back the veil on my sin
show me where my pride
is still rooted in.

Examine me dear Lord,
bare my soul’s weakness
uncover my selfish acts
all that is needless.

Examine me dear Lord,
tear away the disguise
till all I can see . . .
is Your image in my eyes!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 26:2
King James Version

“Examine me, O Lord, and prove me;
try my reins and my heart.”

The Poor In Spirit ~

Blessed Are by  Joe Cacazos free photo #5225

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me see my own depravity
show me all my iniquities
my absolute spiritual poverty.

Give me the understanding,
to recognize my sinful condition
let me dwell on my wickedness
till I feel the sting of conviction.

Show me my lustful appetites,
the habits of selfishness
let me look upon my heart
till I see my own helplessness.

Let me see my sinfulness,
what’s not pleasant in Your sight
examine and judge me
for Your laws are always right.

Shut up in me Your loving grace,
lock up in me Your tender mercy
let me exercise my full obedience
till Your love flows out of me.

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me be, for You hard pressed
let me see my absolute poverty
so I may be ~ heaven blessed!

A Humble Heart ~

Blessed are The Meek used with permission IBible Verses

Jesus, give me a humble heart,
teach me to have a meek attitude
take from me, my selfish pride
fill my soul with eternal gratitude.

Disrobe me of my self-importance,
strip my conceit and arrogance
remove the smugness on my face
rip away any self-imposed relevance.

Cloth me in Your righteousness,
wrap me in Your truth and love
cover me with the Holy Spirit
bind me to Your Father up above.

Jesus, give me a holy humbleness,
dispose of any remaining selfish debris
take from me my self-centerness
let humility bend my prideful knee!

James 4:6
King James Version

“But He gives more grace. Therefore He
says: ” God resists the proud, But
gives grace to the humble.”

Sin City ~

Sin CIty ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus came not to condemn,
but to save us from our sin
to free us from the bondage
of the lusts that live within.

But, the flesh fights the spirit,
and sin often comes into our life
bringing the desires of this world
yet, leaving us with inner strife.

The works of the flesh are clear,
they are written in the Bible . . .
many of them are so difficult
for us to tame or even bridle.

But we’ve got to stay away from,
sexual immorality of any kind
jealousy, envy and indignation
must not fill the heart or mind.

We mustn’t bow to other gods,
or conjure up an evil host
and with drinking and partying
we’re no longer to be engrossed.

We must put away contention,
our anger and our wrath
and all of our selfish ambitions
we must send packing down the path.

The sins of the flesh are written,
for every eye to see . . .
and we must repent of them
or in sin city we’ll always be.

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:19-21
King James Version

“Now the works of the flesh are
manifest, which are these; Adultery,
fornication, uncleanness,
lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft,
hatred, variance, emulations,
wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness,
revellings, and such like: of the
which I tell you before, as I have
also told you in time past, that they
which do such things shall not inherit
the kingdom of God.”
