Hold on To Me, Jesus ~

Hand-of-JESUS

Hold on to me Jesus,
I’m losing my grip
hold me ever tight . . .
do not let me slip.

Hold on to me Jesus,
I’m falling apart
hold me ever tight . . .
calm my restless heart.

Hold on to me Jesus,
I am losing control
hold me ever tight . . .
bring peace to my soul.

Hold on to me Jesus,
do not let go of me
hold me ever tight . . .
till its Your light I see.

Hold on to me Jesus,
this burden I can’t bear
come and give to me . . .
Your gentle yoke to wear!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:28-30

“Come unto me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

The Stairway to My Soul ~

Stairway by Laura Macky http://lauramacky.wordpress.com/

The stairway to my soul,
once was long and dark
to Satan, I was indeed
just another easy mark.

He hid in the shadows,
waiting around for me
for, God’s eternal light
he didn’t want me to see.

Each step I would climb,
he’d throw a fiery arrow
he knew how to keep me
off the straight and narrow.

Still, I kept my sights on,
the safe landing at the top
knowing his attacking me
would never end or stop.

The stairway to my soul,
now floods with God’s light
though, Satan’s still after me
I stand ready for the fight!

wherewith ye shall be able to quench

Captured Thoughts

taking-every-thought-captive CHRISTIAN poetry by deborah ann

Capture my thoughts Lord,
free me in the truth
let me follow Thy Word
as in the days of my youth.

With childlike faith,
take into custody my mind
keep me close to You
so Your ways I can find.

Control and restrain me,
release me not from Thy hold
may my heart for You
not turn luke-warm or cold.

Let me not be disillusioned,
by the wisdom of man
seize upon my belief
show me Your perfect plan.

Capture my thoughts Lord,
be in complete control
I give to You my life . . .
let not man conquer my soul!

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

2 Corinthians 10:5
King James Version

“Casting down imaginations,
and every high thing that exalteth itself

My King is Coming ~

the-joy-of-seeing-jesus CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My King is coming,
He will soon be here
I cannot wait
for Him to near.

He will reign,
upon His throne
the world’s sins
He’ll not condone.

He will take over,
be in complete control
the universe is His
as well as every soul.

There will be peace,
the drying of tears
no longer Satan
will we have to fear.

The father of lies,
will be cast into hell
and his followers
with him will dwell.

But for those of us,
who sins are forgiven
with Jesus we will be
in a new earth and heaven.

My King is coming,
all things will be new
and He wants to be
your King too!

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.

Hitting up the old man,
ask a friend for a loan
doing anything other than
making money on their own.

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

if he shall gain the whole world,

My Hope ~

my-hope-is-in-you CHRISTian poetry be deborah ann

While my flesh,
withers away
my hope is in
a better day.

The time coming,
when I’ll be at peace
while I’m waiting
my hope won’t cease.

Pressing on,
forward I go
perfect hope
in my soul flows.

As I wait,
for the Lord to come
on my heart-strings
my hope will strum.

Looking onward,
Jesus in my sight
eternal life . . .
hopes greatest delight.

While my flesh,
withers away
my hope rests in
that glorious day!

The Road Home ~

Road to By Jared Rarick free photo #6835

When we begin to wander,
go about our own way
the Lord takes notice
knowing we will stray.

As we drift off the path,
of truth and understanding
He knows we’ve departed
from the road everlasting.

He recognizes our error,
He sees that we are inapt
to seek and find for ourselves
the road that’ll take us back.

He won’t leave us for dead,
not one soul, He’d have perish
for every one that He loves
He does forever cherish.

But, He knows we are fragile,
we can’t make it all alone
so, He sends the Holy Spirit
to help and guide us home.

He waits at the door,
to restore the wandering soul
so we can stand before Him
in faith, complete and whole!

King James Version (KJV)

“The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding
shall remain in the congregation of the dead.”

Sweet Savior Jesus,

to be His delight.

Spreading His wings,
to shelter me in
nuzzles my heart
to get closer to Him.

Lands on my soul,
nudges me the way

all of my days.

Sweet Savior Jesus,
eternal love . . .

Jesus, give me a humble heart,

dispose of any remaining selfish debris
take from me my self-centerness
let humility bend my prideful knee!

On My Feet ~

new-2

When my troubles are many,
and my burdens are too great
when my knees fold and buckle
under worries immense weight.

When my heart grows weak,
and my soul is full of sorrow
when I need more that a hug
to even begin to face tomorrow.

When my legs can’t carry me,
and my back is in a slump
when I’m needing extra muscle
to get me over the next hump.

When my mind is dazed,
and confusion has me in a fog
when I need a clear thought
so I can see through the smog.

I lift up my drooping arms,
and raise my trembling hands
I give Jesus my anxious heart
so on my feet ~ I can stand.

He takes from me my burdens,
lifts the weight off my soul
He heals my current affliction . . .
and makes a way for my soles!

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

Hebrews 12:12-13
King James Version

“Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down,
and the feeble knees; And make straight paths
for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned
out of the way; but let it rather be healed.”


Full Submission!

Throne of the Heart by Stephen Corbett free photo #10163

There is a love ~
that’s for God alone
in our hearts He must
sit on the throne.

This love must be,
for Him ~ conclusively
for He desires
our hearts ~ exclusively.

For God, is a jealous God,
He will not tolerate
a divided heart . . .
or one that desecrates.

There cannot be,
another lover of our soul
His Kingdom must be
our eternal goal.

For His beauty,
is in the hearts reflection
He must be the only object
of our affection.

So give to Him ~
His high and lofty position
then let your heart to Him
be in full submission!

In His Hands . . .

The Lords Hand used with permission DoorPost Verses on Facebook

Sometimes problems come,
changing all our plans . . .
making it ever clearer
all things are in His hands.

Hands that long to hold,
to comfort and to console
hands that want to heal
the ache within the soul.

Hands that desire to reach,
far into the heart and mind
hands that hold perfect peace
for anxious ones to find.

Hands that crave to embrace,
grieving hearts in the night
hands that hunger to lead
the lost into His saving light.

Hands that are capable,
hands confident and sure
hands that calm the storms
hands that holds life’s cure.

Sometimes problems come,
and we must change our plans
so that we may come to rest
in His almighty hands!

Show Me Thy Ways ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, show me Thy ways,
reveal them to me
lead my soul
to where I should be.

Show me Thy light,
be by my side
the road is rough
the path is wide.

Show me Thy ways,
help me to know
guide my life
the way it should go.

Show me Thy truth,
hold on to my hand
the hills are too steep
the mountains so grand.

Show me Thy ways,
each day direct me
the valleys are deep
the path I can’t see.

Lord, show me Thy truth,
teach me Thy ways
let Thy light lead me
for the rest of my days!

The Window of Your Soul ~

Window Art by Mariane Trinidad free photo #8793

If God should look into,
the window of your soul . . .
will He see a loving heart
or spot an empty hole?

As He peers into the glass,
smeared with the streaks of sin
will He see His strength inside
or find weakness deep within?

As He peeks into the cracks,
of a broken windowpane
will He see delight and joy
or sight the shattered pain?

As He pulls away the curtain,
and unveils the hidden man
will He see a life close to Him
or will there be an empty span?

If God should look into,
the window of your soul . . .
will He see a heart of flesh
or will it be stony cold?

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

Ezekiel 36:26
King James Version

“A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
and I will give you an heart of flesh.”
