Heart Matters ~

Heart Matters ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo/Creation/Swap

There isn’t a heart too cold,
that God can’t melt
there isn’t one too stony
where He can’t be felt.

There isn’t a heart too cynical,
that God can’t shake
there isn’t one too hardened
that He can’t break.

There isn’t a heart too rigid,
that God can’t move
there isn’t a heart too rough
that He can’t smooth.

There isn’t a heart too lost,
that God can’t find
there isn’t a heart too far off
that He’d leave behind.

There isn’t a heart too broken,
that God can’t love
there isn’t a heart in the world
that He would ever let go of.

John 3:16
King James Version

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.”

Change of Heart ~

change_your_heart_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God can take the stony-heart,
the self-centered and defiant
change it into something . . .
that is on Him, truly reliant.

He can cut out the aloofness,
of a heart set in its own way
sever the ties it has to the world
give it no more reason to stray.

He can smooth out the roughness,
in a heart made of stone
fill it with longing for all things
that come from His throne.

He can take that cold and hard,
heart beating inside of you . . .
turn it into one full of passion
give it a purpose, to all you do.

A heart of flesh God will give you,
one that lives and breathes
in you a new spirit He will put
where faith and truth breeds.

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

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.”

Grace Saw Beyond ~

God has Bee Gracious to Me used with permission from Darrell Creswell

Grace saw beyond,
the worthless and unworthy
it looked past the sin
with its unmerited mercy.

Grace saw beyond,
the bondage of the soul
it broke loose the yoke
to heal and make whole.

Grace saw beyond,
the outward behavior
it  looked past the wickedness
with its unwarranted favor.

Grace saw beyond,
the look of the proud
it recognized the helpless
standing out in a crowd.

Grace saw beyond,
the stony-human heart
it looked past the coldness
so love it could impart.

Grace saw beyond,
corruption, lust and greed
it came in the name of Jesus
so from works we’d be freed!

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

2 Timothy 1:9
King James Version

“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose and grace,
which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began”
