Give A Joyful Shout ~

give-a-joyful-shout-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

May you give a joyful shout,
on this Thanksgiving Day
may your elation be seen
as you go about your way.

May gladness fill your heart,
for all God has given
may you remind yourself
just why you are forgiven.

May your thankfulness flow,
in a chorus of gratitude
may the joy of your salvation
reflect in your attitude.

May your praise be heard,
across Thanksgiving’s table
may you proclaim to all
God supplies our every staple.

May you give a joyful shout,
one filled with gratefulness
may you give God due thanks
for His loving graciousness!

Psalm 32.11

“Be glad in the Lord,
and rejoice, ye righteous:
and shout for joy,
all ye that are upright
in heart.”

My Kind of Hope ~

hopeeternal-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My hope is built on,
things I cannot see . . .
not on the troubles
today, surrounding me.

On them I don’t focus,
I’m looking forward to
the day God’s glory . . .
comes shinning  thru.

Today’s sufferings,
don’t compare to the day
when everyone’s tears . . .
will all be wiped away.

I’m eagerly awaiting,
for Jesus to return
when for this world . . .
I’ll haven’t one concern.

My hope is built on,
things I cannot see
especially the day  . . .
Jesus comes for me!

“Now faith is
the substance of things
hoped for,

the evidence of things
not seen.”

Words of Encouragement ~

Words of Encouragement ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo Creation Swap

Early in the morning
to God I pray . . .
for words of encouragement
He would have me to say.

Before the dawn breaks,
while I am still in bed
thoughts of comfort and hope
dance around in my head.

I rise up with His Son,
His Word I begin to read
to places of mercy and grace
I let the Holy Spirit lead.

I write for His glory,
I write hoping you will find
peace and tranquility . . .
to fill your heart and mind.

When I go to bed at night,
to God I pray . . .
that He will bless someone
with what, He gave me to say!

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

Thank you to all my faithful friends in Jesus.
It is truly my desire that the words God gives me
will be of a blessing to each of you and will
bring some comfort to your day!

Wounded ~

Wounded ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Christ Crucified - IBible Verse

Insulted and ridiculed,
poked and made fun of
for me Jesus was affronted
in the name of eternal love.

Bruised for my rebellion,
cursed and  spit upon
for my own wickedness
Jesus was severely beaten on.

Wounded for my sins,
whipped and cruelly lashed
for my transgressions
Jesus was brutally slashed.

Pierced and stabbed,
left hanging on the cross
because of me, Jesus became
no better than a pile of dross.

My punishment He took,
my peace, He finally sealed
tis why by His stripes today
my soul to God is healed!

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

Isaiah 53:5

“But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.

A Psalm of Peace ~

Joy Comes  in the Morning ~ CHRISTian poetry by deboranann ~ used with permission IBIble Verser

Mourning ~ greets me,
with a peaceful Psalm
washing over me . . .
like a healing balm.

The soothing effect,
brings my heart relief
God’s tender mercies
helps me in my grief.

The ointment of peace,
repairs daunting dreams
a Psalm of peace leads me
to quiet, calming streams.

My soul finds its comfort,
in a God who’ll not forsake
who’s peace flows within me
the moment that I awake.

The salve of restoration,
mends the damage done
renews me each new day
with the rising of the Son.

Morning greets me,
with a peaceful Psalm
joy washes over me . . .
like a healing calm!

To God Be The Glory ~

Lord, I want to bring You glory,
I want to do right by You . . .
I want the light of Your salvation
in my life to shine brightly through.

I want to be the salt,
the flavor of Your grace
I want my soul to reflect
the wonder of Your face.

I want to move mountains,
to part the ocean wave
I want to be Your soldier
for You, Your Gospel slave.

I want to taste Your manna,
sip the nectar of Your vine
I want to be Your branch
I want our lives to intertwine.

I want to be Your vessel,
the clay upon Your wheel
I want to see Your image,
to know Your godly will.

Lord, I want to bring You glory,
I want to sing Your praise . . .
I want the world to know
that for You, my heart’s ablaze!

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

behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,

Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory
shall be seen upon thee.”

Carry Me ~

RAVEN ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann Picture by Jonatha Ashcraft Creation Swap used with permission

Lord, carry me upon Your grace,
until the day I see Your face
and when I’m down and feeling low
let it be Your joy, that I may know.

When I need a  hand to hold,
give me Yours, so I can be bold
and when I need a loving friend
be mine until ~ the very end.

Lord, lift my spirits in Your love,
send Your mercies from above
and when I need a shoulder to cry on
let it be Your name, I call upon.

When I’m hurting and I’m in pain,
let Your strength, be my restrain
and when it all gets too much for me
let Your truth, help me to trust in Thee.

Keep me close and near to You,
help me with everything I must do
and when I’m not sure where to go
let Your Spirit, lead and show.

Lord, carry me upon Your wings,
so I may soar above all that life brings
and when You see me losing air . . .
promise me, You’ll always be there!

Prayer Request ~

Dear faithful friends and bloggers . . .

It is with a heavy heart that I put these words together
My 39-year-old son committed suicide early this morning.
He leaves behind his wife and four children ages 18,16,5 and 3.
I pray that you will keep them in your hearts and prayers.

Our God is a good and gracious God full of tender mercy and grace
His loving kindness never ceases and His peace is unimaginable.
He is my strength and my might. I trust Him with all my heart
and feel His presence in my life as He takes me through this journey.

I will return with more poetry soon,
I am sure He will use this time to give me more words
to bring Him glory and praise.

Through the Lens of Faith ~

Through the Lens of Fatih ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Through the lens of faith,
I have a perfect view . . .
for when I look through it
all things become new.

I can see my heavenly Father,
sitting on His throne
promising to me
one day He’ll bring me home.

I can look into the future,
see Jesus coming again
I can see the hope He’ll bring
to a universe full of pain.

I can look past right now,
and see everlasting peace
I can see the joys of heaven
that will never end or cease.

Through the lens of faith,
I have a perfect view . . .
and I pray that it includes
every one of you!

Revelation 21:4
King James Version

“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.”

One Day ~

thy_kingdom_come

One day every knee shall bow,
before Jesus, the King of Kings
one day every person will face
the judgment that He brings.

One day every mouth will confess,
Jesus is the Lord over every nation
one day God will get His due glory
for being the Author of all creation.

One day those who have loved Him,
will offer Him songs of praise
one day those who have refused Him
will account for their evil ways.

One day every person in the world,
will bow down and confess
Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior
every tongue, His name will profess.

One day Jesus will come again,
to rule and set up His Kingdom
one day the world will know peace
and the meaning of true freedom!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:10-11
King James Version

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
of things in heaven, and things in earth,
and things under the earth; And that every tongue
should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”

Love Like This ~

Love Like This ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When my days are weary,
and my nights seem so long
where there is but a whimper
when there should be a song.

Let me remember the cross,
and all Jesus did for me
let me always be mindful
He is the reason, I am free.

When my soul is aching,
and my heart cries out in pain
let me not forget, in His death
there is everlasting gain.

Let His endless supply of grace,
always help to remind
love like this  . . .
nowhere else will I ever find!

Loss for Words ~

worship1_bmp

Lord, my words can barely,
come together
to collaborate
to rally up
and gather
worthy expressions
of my deepest desire for You.

For they seem weak,
feeble at best
frail and faint
limping and stumbling
on themselves
to adequately convey
what You mean to me.

Words get caught,
in my throat
choking me up
they can not sufficiently
articulate
communicate
demonstrate
my love for You!

Psalm 63:3
King James Version

“Because thy lovingkindness
is better than life,

my lips shall praise thee.”

I’m Looking Up ~

worship1_bmp

I’m looking up,
morning, noon and night
I’m keeping my eyes on Jesus
looking straight into His light.

I’m not going to look within,
I’ll just be disappointed
I’m not going to look back
I’ll just get all disjointed.

I’m not looking around me,
I’ll just be distracted
I’m not going to look forward
I’ll just get sidetracked.

So, I’ll just keep looking up,
with praise and gratitude
morning, noon and night
with a thankful attitude!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:3

” My voice shalt thou hear in the morning,
O Lord; in the morning will I direct my
prayer unto thee, and will look up.”

Be Not Anxious ~

be-not-anxious CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be anxious for nothing,
let not worry rule the day
give your cares to the Lord
before you go your way.

Some people get all nervous,
they fuss and fret about
then anxiousness takes root
growing the seeds of doubt.

But, Jesus promises us,
through everything in prayer
we can find His peace
when thanksgiving is also there.

So, don’t be concerned,
don’t let your heart worry
instead ~ first go to God
and give Him, His due glory!

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

Philippians 4:6
King James Version

” Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests
be made known unto God.”

Let Jesus Come In ~

Be Free by Marian Trindad free photo

A heart full of wounds,
that no longer can feel
needs the touch of Jesus
who knows how to heal.

A life that’s been shattered,
heading nowhere
needs the hand of the Lord
to lead them somewhere.

A body that is broken,
beaten up and is bare
needs the love of Jesus
who will always care.

A sinner, a beggar,
a rich man or thief
needs a merciful God
to bring eternal relief.

No matter your station,
or place in this life
you need a Savior
to overcome your strife.

So, open your mind,
shut out the depression
let Jesus come in . . .
and make His impression!

for there is none other name under heaven

Finding Christ in CHRISTmas ~

 

I can’t find Christ in CHRISTmas,
it’s like they erased away His name
replacing Him with some greetings
that just don’t mean the same.

Happy Holidays,
is just too bland and generic
although it’s sounds pleasant
it doesn’t capture the true spirit.

Season Greetings,
doesn’t express or say anything
about the life-saving reason
the season we are celebrating.

Merry Xmas,
can it get any worse?
Yet, people can say Jesus Christ
when they swear and curse.

I can’t find Christ in CHRISTmas,
the world continues to resist
the Savior born on CHRISTmas
it’s as if He doesn’t even exist!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6
King James Version

“For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:

and the government
shall be upon his shoulder:

and his name shall
be called Wonderful
Counsellor,
The mighty God,

The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.”

Glory to My Lord ~

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
for His awesome grace
mercy He has given me
despite my own disgrace.

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
for abundant is His love
generously He grants me
blessings from above.

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
for His mercifulness to me
assurance I didn’t work for
but, given to me for free.

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
for His riches do exceed
treasures I don’t deserve
yet, meet my every need.

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
I hail and praise His name
today, tomorrow, forever . . .
His love remains the same.
