A Kinder Place ~

I wish the world was,
a much kinder place . . .
I wish more would know
the power of God’s grace.

I wish it was filled,
with peace not strife
I wish more would find
in Jesus eternal life.

I wish the world was,
a better place to live . . .
I wish people would be
more willing to forgive.

I wish it were full,
of love and not hate
I wish more would find
the straight, narrow gate.

I wish the world was,
a much more kinder place . . .
I wish more heart’s were
tenderized by God’s grace!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:32

And be ye kind
one to another,
tenderhearted,
forgiving one another,
even as God
for Christ’s sake
hath forgiven you.

Let The Truth Guide You ~

Let the truth guide you,
let it lead your way . . .
so on the narrow path
you’ll continue to stay.

For, without the truth,
there are only lies
causing you to take
your eyes off the prize.

Let the truth be your rule,
let it be your banner
so into the straight gate
you’ll be able to enter.

For, without the truth,
satan will try to deceive
making you doubt
everything you believe.

Let the truth guide you,
let it direct you too
listen and follow . .
Jesus’ voice in you!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:27-28

My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:

And I give unto them
eternal life; and they
shall never perish,
neither shall any man
pluck them out of my hand.

Oh, My Unrepentant Friend ~

Oh my unrepentant friend,
don’t think you are good
for not one person . . .
does as they should.

That hate that you have,
embedded in your heart
will keep you and God
distant and far apart.

Oh, my tolerant friend,
don’t you be deceived
for everyone by sin
is sick and diseased.

By your liberal thinking,
you are being lead astray
the road you’re now on
is not the narrow way.

Oh, my progressive friends,
for you it’s not too late . . .
to turn back to the truth
leading to the straight gate!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.

Committing To The Narrow Way ~

commiting-to-the-narrow-way-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Having a hard time,
staying on the narrow way
too many obstacles
to get over each day?

Too many trials,
testings and tribulations
keeping you from striving
to your eternal destination?

Feeling you’ll never get,
through the narrow gate
too many challenges keeping
you from going straight?

Too many worries,
troubles and cares
too many burdens
for you to have to bear?

Well don’t get discourage,
to the narrow way commit
and be happy that you  . . .
were even able to find it!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:14

“Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

Getting Through the Narrow Gate ~

getting-through-the-narrow-gate-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

If we’re to get through,
the narrow gate . . .
we need to work on
our stance and gait.

We need to keep,
our heads held high
we need to keep
Jesus in our eyes.

We need to run,
with endurance
we need to walk
with assurance.

We need to hold,
our shoulder’s back
we need to ward off
satan’s every attack.

We need to keep,
sin’s weight off
we need not care
if others scoff.

If we’re to get through,
the narrow gate . . .
we must keep our souls
pointing straight!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

Two Roads, One Path ~

Two Roads, One Path ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There are two roads,
two different destinies
one has a remedy
the other has penalties.

One leads to heaven,
the other one to hell
both determine where
in eternity we will dwell.

One takes endurance,
strength and firmness
one takes indifference
greed and worldliness.

Each one of us,
has a decision to make
we must choose the road
we are willing to take.

There are two different roads,
but only one true path
that will lead us away . . .
from knowing God’s wrath!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

The Narrow Road ~

Straight is the Way used with permission Doorpost Verses on facebook

They say there are two roads,
one’s called low, the other high
and throughout my life . . .
both of them, I have tried.

The low one was crowded,
on it, I had many friends
we partied and caroused . . .
right from the start, to the end.

But, soon I discovered,
the evilness on this path
I knew it would only lead me
to the full measure of God’s wrath.

So, I got myself off the road,
leading to death and destruction
and for the higher one . . .
I went looking for instruction.

But, soon I discovered,
heresy and false teaching
for wolves in sheep clothing . . .
were doing all the preaching.

So, I got myself off the road,
turned from the error I had heard
decided to find the  truth . . .
that is only found in the Good Word.

They say there are two roads,
one’s called high, the other low
but, I discovered another road . . .
and it’s called ~ the one narrow!
