May Christ Dwell ~

may-christ-dwell-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

May Christ dwell,
in your heart today
may His Life
be your Truth and Way.

May Christ make,
your heart His home
may you let Him
make it His throne.

May Christ abide,
in your heart always
may He be the one
to walk its hallways.

May Christ’s love be,
in your heart rooted
may your love for Him
be firmly grounded.

May Christ dwell,
in your heart today
may your faith in Him
always be on display!

~~~~~

Ephesians 3:17

“That Christ may dwell
in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted
and grounded in love,”

In The Name of Tolerance ~

in-the-name-of-tolerance-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God gave us His commands,
to follow and obey
but, that is not what’s taught
in some pulpits today.

Instead we’re being told,
the laws God once gave
can be changed to fit
however we want to behave.

They promote transgression,
in the name of tolerance
skewing the Words of Jesus
to suit their preference.

As the love for self grows,
so does our earthly desires
so they tell us we no longer
need to do what God requires.

God gave us His commands,
they’re written in the Good Book
but, so many for themselves
haven’t even taken a look!

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:12

“For the word of God is quick,
and powerful, and sharper
than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing
asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the
thoughts and intents
of the heart.”

When CHRISTmas Day is Over ~

when-christmas-day-is-over-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
and the tree is finally down
as the lights are returned
to where they were found.

As we settle back into,
our daily routines
the hope of CHRISTmas
isn’t over by any means.

For, the reality of the day,
you cannot pack away
nor return or store it
back into some attic bay.

CHRISTmas lives on,
in our hearts everyday
for it’s the only Gift . . .
we can give each day.

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
be sure to keep sharing . . .
the Truth, Life and Way
by being Light bearing!

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which
is in heaven.”

Carried Away ~

Carried Away ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

To Your true Word Lord,
I will forever cleave
to the Life and Way
I will never leave.

To the false gospel,
I will not take heed
onto its heresies
my soul will not feed.

To Your ways Lord,
I’ll continue to obey
from the only true path
I’ll not be carried away.

To the false teachers,
I’ll refuse to listen
to their deceitfulness
I will not ever give in.

To Your true Word Lord,
I’ll not be tossed from
to the one they distort
I’ll remain forever numb!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:14

“That we henceforth be no more children,
tossed to and fro, and carried about with
every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men,
and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie
in wait to deceive;”

The Saving Light ~

Saving Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I pray those in the dark,
may see Your saving Light
I pray they will come to know
it’s with Satan that they fight.

I pray they will find the Truth,
so they can seek the Way
I pray Your mercy and favor
will cause their hearts to sway.

I pray their eyes be opened,
to the darkness of their deeds
I pray they will come to know
it is the devil who misleads.

I pray their ears will hear,
the Good News that You sent
I pray to Your love and grace
they will give their consent.

Lord, I pray for those under,
Satan’s bondage and control
I pray they will come to know
only You can save their soul!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 26:18

“To open their eyes, and to turn them
from darkness to light, and from the
power of Satan unto God, that they
may receive forgiveness of sins,
and inheritance among them which
are sanctified by faith that is in me.”

If Walking in The True Light ~

Walking In The Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

If we are walking,
in the True Light . . .
we will be given
a new heavenly sight.

We’ll begin to see,
God’s full glory
for our past sins
we’ll truly be sorry.

For the Light brings,
unworldly clarity
as it illuminates
our soul’s impurity.

It will expose,
the filth in our heart
so God’s mercy in it
He can impart.

If we are walking,
in the True Light . . .
with spiritual darkness
we’ll not have to fight!

~~~~~~~

1 John 1:5-7

“This then is the message
which we have heard of him,

and declare unto you,
that God is light, and in him

is no darkness at all.

If we say that we have
fellowship with him, and walk

in darkness, we lie,
and do not the truth:

But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,

we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood

of Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.”

Your Shepherd to The End ~

My Shepherd ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Verses

If the Lord is your Shepherd,
then nothing you will lack
you’ll have nothing to fear
He’ll always have your back.

He’ll guide you in the valley,
lead you to the mountain top
He’ll show you where to go
warn you when you to stop.

If the Lord is your Shepherd,
you’ll have a place to rest
for, to your every need
He’ll be constantly abreast.

He’ll daily provide you,
with power and grace
to His truth and His ways
your heart will embrace.

If the Lord is your Shepherd,
He’ll refine and restore
so that you will always find
your way back to His door.

He’ll renew you each day,
with joy and in His love
by raining down on you
His mercy from above.

If the Lord is your Shepherd,
you’ll always have a retreat
for, He will be your refuge . . .
until the day that you meet!

~~~~~~~

“The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.”

To Live In The Spirit ~

Let Them See used with permission IBible Verses

When you live in the Spirit,
you’ll turn away from sin
you’ll pursue after holiness
with the power of Him within.

You’ll produce much fruit,
throughout the day
when you live in the Spirit
joy will lead the way.

When you live in the Spirit,
love will be in your stride
and the peace God gives
you won’t be able to hide.

You’ll be patient and kind,
you’ll learn how to be meek
the Truth, Life and Way
you will earnestly seek.

When you live in the Spirit
Jesus’ heart you’ll embrace
you’ll understand the meaning
of  having faith through grace!

Walk in the Spirit,

and ye shall not

It’s Not Easy ~

It's Not Easy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s not simple,
this Christian walk
it’s not easy
this Christian talk.

People think,
I’m a religious freak
people insist
I’m tolerant weak.

It’s not easy,
this Christian road
it’s not fun
when others goad.

I must admit,
it’s laborious
for this Christian walk
to be victorious.

But, I don’t mind,
what others may say
for I know . . .
Jesus is the only way.

It’s not easy,
to walk the talk
it’s not acceptable
to talk the walk!

~~~~~

Ephesians 2:10
King James Version

“For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ

Jesus unto good works,
which God hath

before ordained that we
should walk in them.”

Because Jesus Said So ~

Because Jesus Said So ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Why must we give up our lives,
and everything we love and own
why must we make Him the ruler
and put Him on our heart’s throne?

Why must we deny ourselves,
and all that brings us pleasure
why must we surrender to the Lord
all that we adore and treasure?

Why must we sell everything,
and leave our dead behind
why must we sacrifice our wealth
and give to the poorest of mankind?

Why must we take up our cross,
and follow wherever He may go
why must we part with everything?
Because . . . Jesus said so!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 16:24
King James Version

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If
any man will come after me, let him deny
himself, and take up his cross, and
follow me.”
