I Stood ~

I stood,
I knew it was a test
I knew when it was over
I would be blessed.

I hung on,
I did not break down
I knew I had to keep
my heart and mind sound.

I was firm,
I did not move
I knew my faith in God
He wanted me to prove.

I endured,
I did not waiver
I held on tight
to my Lord and Savor.

I persevered,
I did not let go
I knew my trust in God
He needed me to show.

I stood,
I kept on solid ground
I remained steadfast
I did not fall down!

Jesus Died for All ~

Jesus gave Himself for me,
He gave Himself for you
He gave Himself for each
one in the world too.

Jesus died for our sins,
He gave up His life
so we’d be delivered
from its damning strife.

Jesus gave Himself for all,
He gave Himself to set free
He gave Himself to break
on us, satan’s authority.

Jesus became the ransom,
His life was the price
so one day with Him
we could be in paradise.

Jesus gave Himself for you,
He gave Himself for me . . .
so from sin we’d be freed
if we so choose to be!

“And he is the propitiation
for our sins: and not for

the sins of the whole world.”

Masks ~

Some hide behind,
masks of every kind
some wear disguises
if only in their mind.

Some camouflage,
who they truly are
some cover up
life’s many battle scars.

Some keep hidden,
the agony they feel
some their heartache
they want to conceal.

Some pretend to be,
happy when they’re not
some try to obscure
the problems they’ve got.

Some gloss over,
their heart’s insecurities
some try to cloak
their personal disabilities.

But, behind the masks,
from God we can’t hide
for He sees everything
going on, on the inside.

So, take off the disguise,
you are hiding behind
and let God transform . . .
your heart and mind!

are upon the ways of man,
and he seeth all his goings.”

God of The Repentant ~

god-of-the-repentant-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God of the lonely,
God of the rejected
may Your mercy be
in our lives injected.

God of the depressed,
God of the dispirited
give us Your favor
though unwarranted.

God of the guilty,
God of the hopeless
may Your grace
hold us blameless.

God of the repentant,
God of the mournful
may we be for our sins
truly remorseful!

~~~~~~

Matthew 9:13

“But go ye and learn
what that meaneth,
I will have mercy,
and not sacrifice:

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,

We All Need A Shepherd~

we-all-need-a-shepherd-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every one is broken,
some how, some where
every one needs Jesus
to bear their care.

Every one has suffered,
some pain, some grief
every one needs Jesus
to bring them relief.

Every one has worries,
some great, some slight
every one needs Jesus
His love, His light.

Every one is weary,
some more, some less
every one needs Jesus
their lives to bless.

Every one needs Jesus,
every minute, every day
every one needs a Shepherd
to show, the way!

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.”

To Keep Pressing On ~

to-keep-pressing-on-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To keep pressing on,
to Jesus we need to press in
to keep on, keeping on
we need to run away from sin.

To reach the high calling,
on God we must keep our eyes
to reach up to heaven
we need to focus on the prize.

To get to the goal,
to our Savior we need to cling
to get to the finish line
we must grow our eagle wings.

To obtain the reward,
on the Holy Spirit we need to rely
to obtain the treasure
our worldly desires we must deny.

To keep pressing on,
to Jesus we must give Him our all
to keep on, keeping on
on God’s power we need to call!

~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-15

” Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended: but this
one thing I do, forgetting those
things which are behind,
and reaching forth unto
those things which are before,

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

Let us therefore, as many
as be perfect, be thus minded:
and if in any thing ye be
otherwise minded, God shall
reveal even this unto you.”

To Be An Overcomer ~

to-be-an-overcomer-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To be an overcomer,
we must see sin is the problem
our faith and trust in Jesus
must remain firm and solemn.

To be an overcomer,
we must confront the obstructions
that leads to the wide road
of everlasting destruction.

To be an overcomer,
we must tackle the world head on
we constantly must be
to the Holy Spirit drawn.

To be an overcomer,
we must be willing to defeat
Satan and his armies
so not to fall for his deceit.

To be an overcomer,
we can’t stand in the shadows
we must shed God’s light
so the darkness we can expose!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:4

“For whatsoever is born of God
overcometh the world: and this
is the victory that overcometh
the world, even our faith.

Who is he that overcometh the
world, but he that believeth
that Jesus is the Son of God?”

The Power of Sin ~

the-power-of-sin-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The power of sin,
is seductive
it is always beguiling
and permissive.

The power of sin,
is heady
it is always lethal
and deadly.

The power of sin,
is addictive
is it always evil
and destructive.

The power of sin,
is toxic
it is always noxious
and caustic.

The power of sin,
you cannot control
unless you let God’s Spirit
into your heart and soul!

~~~~~~~

Romans 8:4-5

That the righteousness
of the law might be
fulfilled in us,
who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.

For they that are after
the flesh do mind the things
of the flesh; but they
that are after the Spirit
the things of the Spirit.”

A Reminder ~

a-reminder-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Satan is evil,
he’s a deceiver
he is out to get
every believer.

He is a liar,
he is a thief
he only causes
eternal grief.

Satan is devious,
he is ruthless
he wants to render
you for God useless.

He is scheming,
he is cunning
after your soul
he is gunning.

Satan is a slanderer,
he’s a counterfeiter
he wants to make you
in Jesus a quitter.

Satan is evil,
he is an eye blinder
lest you forget . . .
tis why this reminder!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 12:9

“And the great dragon
was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan,
which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth,
and his angels were cast out with him.”

My Song of Salvation ~

my-song-of-salvation-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

With an open heart,
I want to sing
about my Lord
my God, my King

I want to share,
what’s on my soul
songs of the One
who made me whole.

I want to sing,
of God’s favor
how in His death
He became our Savior.

I want to chime,
eternity’s bell
and save a soul
from the fires of hell.

With an open heart,
I want to sing
till in your own
the truth will ring!

I want to tell,
of His loving grace
till in your own heart
His mercy you embrace!

A New Heaven and Earth ~

a-new-heaven-and-earth-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A new heaven,
a new universe
where in God’s peace
all will be immersed.

New stars there’ll be,
new galaxies too
all of God’s glory
will shine through

A new earth,
pristine and fresh
no scars on it
from acts of the flesh.

A new city,
with streets of gold
gates of pearls
opening to His fold.

A new relationship,
between God and man
for all who’ve trusted
in salvation’s plan.

A new condition,
broken hearts no more
no sorrow, no death
only bliss galore.

A new Heaven,
a new earth too . . .
oh, won’t that be
a glorious view!

2 Peter 3:13

“Nevertheless we,
according to his promise,

Dancing With the Wolves ~

dancing-with-the-wolves-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

So many today,
dancing with the wolves
so many are following
their slippery hooves.

So many today,
are deceivingly mislead
so many aren’t being
the truth, anymore fed.

So many today,
are living in the darkness
so many aren’t looking
for Christ and His likeness.

So many today,
hearing errant teachings
so many don’t discern
the lies they’re preaching.

So many today,
with wolves are dancing
so many can’t spot . . .
danger at first glancing!

“Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in
sheep’s clothing,
but inwardly they are

Just One ~

just-one-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If everyone would bring,
back just one . . .
there would be more sheep
returning to the Son.

If for just one,
everyone would pray
there would be more sheep
on the narrow way.

If for just one,
everyone would go after
there would be more sheep
in heaven’s hereafter.

If for just one,
everyone would pursue
there would be more sheep
returning God to You.

If everyone would bring,
back to Jesus just one . . .
there would less sheep
lost and on the run!

~~~~~

James 5:19-20

“Brethren, if any of you do err
from the truth,and one convert him;

Let him know,that he which
converteth the sinner from
the error of his way shall
save a soul from death, and
shall hide a multitude of sins.”

God’s Adoption Plan ~

chosen-and-loved-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Jesus conquered the grave,
defeated death . . .
so we don’t have to fear
our dying breath.

The victory is His,
to which we are a heir
one day in Heaven
we will see Jesus there.

A free gift we were given,
when satan, Jesus defeated
and now by His grace
our faith is completed.

Blameless and holy,
before God, we will stand
for, Jesus’ death fulfilled
His Father’s adoption plan.

Jesus conquered,
what we could not do . . .
through His precious blood
in Him, we’re made new!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:4-5

” According as he hath chosen
us in him before the foundation
of the world, that we should
be holy and without blame
before him in love:

Having predestinated us
unto the adoption of children
by Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good pleasure
of his will,”

A Heart Full of Gladness ~

When I think of all the things,
this year for which I’m thankful
there are a few that stand out
that leave me eternally grateful.

I’m thankful for God’s mercy
for His unmerited favor
I am grateful for His gift
of Christ Jesus, my Savior

I am thankful for His grace,
for the love Jesus showed
I am forever appreciative
for the hope in me He bestowed.

I am thankful for my faith,
the forgiveness of my sin
I am grateful over satan
the battle God and I can win.

So, with a shout of gratitude,
I will close out this year . . .
with a heart full of gladness
having nothing to fear!

When CHRISTmas Day is Over ~

When CHRISTmas Day is over,

As we settle back into,

the hope of CHRISTmas
isn’t over by any means.

back into some attic bay.

CHRISTmas lives on,

for it’s the only Gift . . .
we can give each day.

be sure to keep sharing . . .

On This CHRISTmas Morn ~ A Re-Post ~

A promise to the world,
a child to be given
so many years foretold
so all could be forgiven.

Moonless night shining,

calling watchful shepherds
to come from afar.

Wise Men carry gifts,
meant for only a King
angels up in heaven
Glory ~ Glory ~ sing.

God became a man,
the Good News is born
begotten Son arrives
on this Christmas morn.

Our mighty God concedes,
to the wickedness of man
the Prince of Peace comes
to bridge the empty span.

Wonderful is His name,
Counselor to the meek
the Son was born of flesh
to give power to the weak.

Our everlasting Father,
knows our fallen state
so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born
sing ~ Praises to His Glory ~
on this Christmas morn!
