Good Morning Quote ~01.22.20~


In This Believer’s Eyes ~

In this believer’s eyes,
God’s beauty I behold
about a time to come
once long ago foretold.

I see a world receding,
as darkness turns to light
I see the glory of my Lord
and no more gloom of night.

I envision a paradise,
like none I’ve ever seen
I foresee a new earth
where everything is pristine.

I visualize a new heaven
where fear will have no reign
I can picture a place with . . .
no tears, no death, no pain.

In this believer’s mind,
I behold a coming day . . .
where all the former things
will have passed away!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 22:5

And there shall be no night there;
and they need no candle, neither
light of the sun; for the Lord God
giveth them light: and they shall
reign for ever and ever.

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall be
no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be
any more pain: for the former
things are passed away.

What’s In Your Heart ~

What’s in your heart,
what idol has it occupied
what’s causing God . . .
to be small and minimized?

Do you overtly worship,
adore and love it
is it filling up the space
of the Holy Spirit?

What’s on your mind,
what thoughts do you greet
what’s causing Jesus . . .
to take a back seat?

Do you openly fantasize,
on worldly pleasure
is it taking the place
of your eternal treasure?

What is in your heart,
what is on your mind
what is satan using . . .
to keep your soul blind?

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.

The Eyes of My Heart ~

Lord give me vision,
not just in my eyes
but too in my heart
as I go for the prize.

Let me see perfectly,
Your grace for me
so I may trust You
for all I can’t see.

Lord give me vision,
unclouded and bright
so all that I consider
is viewed in Your light.

Let Your light travel,
deep into my heart
so that Your love
I may too impart.

Lord, give me vision,
in the eyes of my mind
so I may produce fruit
of every sort and kind!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:22

The light of the body is the eye:
if therefore thine eye be single,
thy whole body shall be full of light.

Walking In the Spirit ~

When you walk in the Spirit,
you will live in Jesus’ light
all things will be clearer
everything will look bright.

For the Spirit will change you,
your mind He will capture
fill it with secure thoughts
of the upcoming rapture.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll have a worldly guide
someone who will help you
to keep faith in your stride.

For the Spirit will lead you,
on the path of righteousness
helping you to live a life
in the power of faithfulness.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll repel the darkness
for the Light of Jesus . . .
will help keep you sinless!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:25

“If we live
in the Spirit,
let us also walk
in the Spirit.”

Called By God ~

Called by God,
into righteous living
all because of grace
not of our own doing.

A holy pure life,
we’re to lead
so sin into it . . .
cannot breed.

Called to be saints,
without blame
in love and truth
without shame.

A fountain of life,
we are to be
so Jesus’ light in us
the world can see.

Called by God,
into a life holy
called to give up
our ungodly folly!

~~~~

2 Timothy 1:9

“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,”

Shake Me Up Lord ~

Shake me up Lord,
loosen up in me
the strength to speak
boldly about Thee.

Arouse me up Lord,
from my idle sleep
so I can encourage
more of Your sheep.

Fire me up Lord,
ignite in me Your power
so I may be Spirit filled
my every waken hour.

Charge me up Lord,
spark in me Your might
so I can be for You
truth’s illuminating light.

Shake me up Lord,
generate in me a flame
so on my lips . . .
will always be Your name!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:31

“And when they had prayed,
the place was shaken where
they were assembled together;
and they were all filled with
the Holy Ghost, and they spake
the word of God with boldness.”

Sticky Note From God ~12.23.18~


Sticky Note to God ~12.23.18 ~


Imperishable Beauty ~

This CHRISTmas,
instead of hearth decorating
let it be your inner beauty
to all that’s captivating.

Rather than trimming,
your roof top, eaves and lawn
put on a calm and quiet spirit
so others to Jesus will be drawn.

This CHRISTmas,
instead of lighting a tree
let the light of Jesus
in you be what others see.

Rather than garnishing,
your fireplace mantle
adorn your heart and soul
with a spirit that’s gentle.

This CHRISTmas,
instead of all the fuss and ado
let your inner man reveal . . .
Jesus living inside of you!

~~~~~

 1 Peter 3:4

“But let your adorning be
the hidden person of the heart
with the imperishable beauty
of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which in God’s sight
is very precious”

Love That Inspires ~

Let us not love in idle words,
that simply roll off our tongues
let us love in truthful actions
and deeds that are left unsung.

Let us not love with conditions,
that requires more of another
let us love in a forgiving measure
bracing and lifting up each other.

Let us not love over factors,
that causes us to clash and fight
let us love with assuring hearts
filled with joy and His delight.

Let us not love in competition,
that causes one to win or to lose
let us love with honest declarations
His truths be in the terms we choose.

Let us not love with a lofty heart,
that brings or puts another down
let us love with hope and bold faith
so others can see the truth we’ve found.

Let us love with pure, honest deeds,
so our conduct awes and inspires
another life to turn to our Lord
for that is what His heart desires!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2: 1-3

“Therefore if there is
any consolation in Christ,

if any comfort of love,
if any fellowship of the Spirit,

if any affection and mercy,
fulfill my joy by being

like-minded, having the same love,
being of one accord,

of one mind.
Let nothing be done through
selfish ambition

or conceit, but in lowliness
of mind let each esteem

others better than himself.”

1 John 2:10

“He that loveth his brother
abideth in the light,
and there is none occasion
of stumbling in him.”

My Light ~

~ CHRUISTian poetry by deborah ann ~The Light by Nicholas Swetnam free photo 16743 Creation Swap

Lord, give me a warm heart,
a spirit that is bright . . .
let me look at everything
through Your amazing light.

Let me see the sunshine,
even when there is rain
let me see the blue skies
even through my pain.

Let me be grateful,
when answers are delayed
let me be thankful
even when I am dismayed.

Let me see the morning dawn,
even when it’s cold and dark
let me see Your splendor
even when all appears so stark..

Lord, give me a warm heart,
a spirit that is bright
let me see that in You . . .
there is only  light!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:5

“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
