A Life Time of Growth ~

A lifetime of growth,
a lifetime of learning
is what it will take . . .
to become discerning.

For it takes insight,
and good judgment too
for the Holy Spirit
to lead and guide you.

A lifetime of lessons,
a lifetime of mistakes
is what it will take . . .
for the truth awake.

For it takes awareness,
deep understanding too . . .
to let God finish
what He began in you.

A lifetime of reshaping,
a lifelong transformation
is our journey on the road
to complete conformation!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very thing,
that he which hath begun a good
work in you will perform it until
the day of Jesus Christ:

There Are No Shortcuts ~

There are no shortcuts.
to spiritual maturity . . .
there are no easy ways
to learning humility.

It takes a lifetime,
for our faith to grow
it takes years and years
for our fruit to show.

There are no quick steps,
to finding God’s peace
there are no round abouts
to make our trust increase.

It takes a lot of time,
for God to finish . . .
what He has began
for our doubts to diminish.

There are no shortcuts,
no real time savers
for us to be made into . . .
the image of our Savior!

Spring’s Sunshine~

Lord, as the buds,
begin to re-form
in Spring’s sunshine
bright and warm.

May I too,
open up to You
to be restored
and made anew.

Lord, as the birds,
take up their song
as in the breeze
they glide along.

May I too,
sing out to You
my song of praise
for all You do.

Lord, as Spring,
blooms and sings . . .
may I too emerge
on faithful wings!

~~~~~~~~

Song of Solomon 2:11-12

“For, lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;

The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds
is come, and the voice of the turtle
is heard in our land;”

Retired People ~

retired-people-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people when retired,
are just plain bored
but I find myself . . .
getting closer to the Lord.

Some people with their time,
don’t know what to do
but each year I read . . .
my Bible through and through.

Some people sit all day,
in front of the television
but I just close my eyes . . .
so heaven I can envision.

Some people never leave,
the comfort of their home
but I’m always looking . . .
for lost sheep on the roam.

Some people when retired,
see no real meaningfulness
but my life just gets fuller . . .
with God’s purposefulness!

Mustard Seed Faith ~

Mustard Seed Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Mustard seed faith,
is all you need . . .
but, for it to grow
it you must feed.

Milk is good,
if you’re a babe
but, soon your faith
will start to fade.

For it to rise,
it needs the meat
every day with Jesus
you need to meet.

If it’s to branch out,
it needs nourishment
for growing faith
takes encouragement.

Mustard seed faith,
is all you need . . .
but, the Good Book
you’ll have to read!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 4:31-32

“It is like a grain of mustard seed, which,
when it is sown in the earth, is less than
all the seeds that be in the earth:

But when it is sown, it groweth up,
and becometh greater than all herbs,
 and shooteth out great branches; so
that the fowls of the air may lodge
under the shadow of it.”
