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!

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!


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 ~

Glory To My Lord ~ CHRISTIan poetry by deborah ann

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!

From Our Lips to God’s Ears ~

Worship by Lucindy Garcia

From our lips to God’s ears,
our praise for Him He hears
glorious, wonderful words of praise
from our lips to God’s ears.

The children of God rejoice,
they find delight in His name
for He is the everlasting Light
that keeps their hearts aflame.

Those who trust in the Lord,
raise up their voices and sing
they gather from all around
to worship and praise their King.

They clap their hands with joy,
and lift up their arms in praise
on their lips there is gratitude
for the Savior He has raised.

Their hearts are filled with His love,
they hold not on to their fears
glorious, wonderful words of praise
from our lips to God’s ears!

Psalm 95:1
King James Version

“O come, let us sing unto the Lord:
let us make a joyful noise to the
rock of our salvation.”

God ~ I Give You All the Glory

Father, how shall I show my appreciation,
for all You have done for me?
Should I kneel in this space of time,
unmoving on bended knee?

Shall I lift my arms to the heavens,
never to let them fall to my side?
Should I raise my hands up even higher,
and never allow them to subside?

Shall I shout from my rooftop,
about Your mercies I have seen?
Should I scream over the oceans roar,
of how much to me, You mean?

Shall I praise Your Holy name,
from the highest mountain top?
Should I exalt You night and day,
and never for a moment stop?

God, I will give You all the glory,
for the miracles You have done
for You’ve given me the gift of hope
through the healing touch of Your Son.

He is Worthy . . .

Worthy by Meliza Celeridad free photo #14942

He is worthy of our praise,
of our song of trust
He is worthy, oh so worthy
because we know, He is just.

Let us not forget,
the chorus of His grace
let His love humble us
when we seek His face.

He is worthy of our affection,
of our heart and soul
He is worthy, oh so worthy
because of Him, we are whole.

Let us not forget,
mercies everlasting refrain
the words of undying love
until Jesus comes again.

He is worthy of our praise,
of our song of trust
He is worthy, oh so worthy
may His glory shine in us!

King James Version

I will call upon the Lord,
who is worthy to be praised.”

The Desert Bloom

Desert Land 3668 by Natanis Davidsen free photo 5802

The desert land is now a bloom,
with fruit clinging to the vine
what once was barren ~ is fruitful
and flows with everlasting wine.

Years of drifting in the wilderness,
have finally come to an end . . .
darkness now is full of joyful light
for all  ~ finally have an eternal Friend.

The bud of love, blossoms into grace,
stirring the strings of the arid heart
mercy praises they now sing . . .
a song of a new and abundant start.

The weaken hand is made strong,
the feeble knee now too stands
for they have found God’s justice
and place their trust in His hands.

Once blind eyes now can see,
deaf ears now can hear the sound
of the once mute song of praise
as the lame leap ~ an eternal bound.

Hands held high overhead,
giving God the glory He is due
rejoice, rejoice, and again rejoice
for Jesus came to save you!

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

Isaiah 35:1
King James Version

“The wilderness and the solitary place
shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice,
and blossom as the rose.”

Rest, My Soul, Rest ~

let go let God by Daniel Sauceda free photo #15590

Rest, my soul rest,
return to your state of peace
give your fears to the Lord
onto Him your anxieties release.

Revisit His loving kindness,
dwell in the calmness of His ease
retire thyself in His fullness
let His grace bow your weary knees.

Go back to thy youthful days,
remember His patience bountiful
reclaim your right to His respite
for His mercies are plentiful.

Rest, my soul rest,
let God comfort and console
return to your state of peace
let serenity take control!!

O my soul;

for the LORD hath dealt

On This Christmas Morn ~

A promise to the world,
a child to be given
so many years foretold
so all could be forgiven.

Moonless night shining,
with the Morning Star
calling watchful shepherds
to come from afar.

Wise Men carry gifts,
meant for only a King
angels up in heaven
Glory ~ Glory ~ sing.

God became a man,
the Good News is born
begotten Son arrives
on this Christmas morn.

Our mighty God concedes,
to the wickedness of man
the Prince of Peace comes
to bridge the empty span.

Wonderful is His name,
Counselor to the meek
the Son was born of flesh
to give power to the weak.

Our everlasting Father,
knows our fallen state
so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born
sing ~ Praises to His Glory ~
on this Christmas morn.

~~~~~~~~

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

Little Baby Jesus ~

Christmas by Rode Pannell free photo #17366

Little baby Jesus,
so soft and so sweet
one day would have nails
pounded into His feet.

Tightly swaddled now,
in His mother’s loving arms
one day He would wear
a crown of prickly thorns.

Small cooing sounds,
He now softly sighs
one day to His Father
He’ll moan forsaken cries.

Wise Men bring to Him,
gifts meant for a King
one day to a cross
His life will painfully cling.

Little baby Jesus,
so soft and so sweet
came into the world
so Satan He could defeat!

Luke 2:11
King James Version

“For unto you
is born this day in the city of

David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord”

saying, Crucify him,
crucify
him.”

The Threads of My Life

All My Life by Hosh Maynard free photo #8878

Lord, with needle and thread,
held in my aging hands
I see the pattern of my life
before You ~ as it stands.

I draw the threads of my youth,
and weave into my past
ever so thankful to You
that those days did not last.

I pull on the threads of faith,
and they come raveling apart
reminding me of the days
when You weren’t in my heart.

I tug at the threads of doubt,
that were interlocked in my life
and see that they are woven
with the fibers of my strife.

I yank at the many stitches,
that were made for me to fit
into Your plans to keep me
from the bottomless, fiery pit.

Then suddenly I see,
silver threads coming though
reminding me of the days
when I started to trust in You.

There I can see the seam,
where we became as one
on that day I accepted You
as your Father’s begotten Son.

Lord, I look at the threads of my life,
and I see how You put us together
how the fabric of my heart and soul
became to You ~ forever tethered.

And now I am working on,
those threads spun in eternal gold
so that one day I may rise with You
and all of Your glory I will behold!

“As the fining pot for silver,
and the furnace for gold;

A Plate of Grace ~

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
there will be no turkey with dressing
there will only be a plate of gratitude
served with God’s many blessings.

As a substitute for candied yams,
we are going to feast on His kindness
and taste the sweetness of His favor
as we reflect on His loving guidance.

There will be no rolls and butter,
instead, we’ll eat of the Bread of Life
and with gratitude we’ll give our thanks
that we no longer live in hopeless strife.

In the place of creamy mashed potatoes,
there will be praise piled just as high
and we will sing to Him our adoration
instead of eating pumpkin pie.

The only beverage we will drink,
will be from the one True Vine
and with sanctification on our lips
Jesus’ sacrifice will be as sweet as wine.

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
I’m not making a traditional dinner
I’ll only be serving the grace of God . . .
to those I know ~ who are still a sinner!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient
for thee: for my strength is made perfect in
weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather
glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.”

Rejoice, Rejoice In the Lord

Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord,
be glad and shout out with joy
for He promises to uplift you
and your doubts He’ll destroy.

For those who trust in the Lord,
are covered by His mercies
all those who believe in Him
shall conquer their adversities.

Rejoice all who love the Lord,
with delight offer Him your praise
He will shield and protect you
and your fears He will raise.

Stand up against the wicked one,
don’t you believe in his lies
all who affirm the work of the Lord
will be blessed with a heart that is wise.

Rejoice in His wonder and glory,
let His splendor embrace you
rejoice and be glad in the Lord
and His love will encircle you too.

For those who rejoice in the Lord,
and give Him their praise each day
are the ones who always trust Him
with His answers when they pray.

Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord,
again I say rejoice . . .
always lift Him up in praise
and let Him hear your voice.

King James Version

“Rejoice in the Lord alway: [and] again
I say, Rejoice.”

The Pied Piper from Chicago

Now the pied piper of Chicago,
a few years ago picked up his flute.
And played a mesmerizing tune,
that left most people mute.

The tune was very cleaver,
as he piped his way along.
Even the young schoolchildren,
began to sing his song.

He piped about transparency,
in a land he said was full of haze.
And the people trusted him,
for he had them in a daze.

Now the pied piper from Chicago,
used Saul Alinsky as his socialist teacher.
And Rev. White, “God damn America,”
was his Sunday morning preacher!

He studied hard under them,
and copied all that he had heard.
And piped all their lyrics perfectly,
right down to every single word.

On the road to the White House,
he piped and piped and piped.
All his followers adored and loved him,
as their tears for him they wiped.

The flute must have been magical,
for the piper no one really knew.
For some his tune was Marxist old,
but to most it was something new.

His pipe was full of dreams,
of jobs, and homes, and loans.
But after all the stimulus bills,
he still hears the people’s groans.

Some say he is the anti-Christ,
but this I don’t believe.
For when the true one comes,
ALL the people he’ll deceive.

The pied piper from Chicago,
is only just a peek.
Of the one who will be coming,
and this man I do not seek.

Do you hear what I hear,
or are you still deaf and mute?
If not then in November 2012,
give the piper the good old boot!

All That I Need ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ All You Need is Jesus- IBible Verses

All that I need, God is it,
all that I was, He has seen.
All of the pieces finally fit,
for He is all that I need.

All that I desire, He gives,
all that I want, He has got.
All of my sins, He forgives,
for He is all that I need.

All that I am, He holds,
all that I can be, He knows.
All of my life, He unfolds,
for He is all that I need.

All that I must do, He has done,
all that I can do, is to believe.
All of my hope, is His Son,
for He is all that I need!

Clap Your Hands Together ~

He is the God of forever,
great is His Holy name . . .
today, tomorrow, for always
His glory burns like a flame.

Clap your hands together,
lift your voice in praise
let the power of His Spirit
set your heart, for Him ablaze.

Blessed are they who trust,
who put their life in His hand
for their joy shall be complete
when before Jesus they stand.

Sing your praises to the Lord,
exalt your mighty King . . .
praise Him for the peace
He is coming soon to bring.

Joy shall cover the whole earth,
His glory will shine like a flame
all His faithful will be in awe
as they praise His Holy name!

Morning Song of Praise ~

Morning Song of Praise ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Early in the morning,
before the sun is ablaze
give a shout of pure joy
a song of heartfelt praise.

Make a sweet melody,
and show your gratitude
sing out your praises
with a joyful attitude.

Early in the morning,
before the sun begins to rise
remember His loving-kindness
under the darken skies.

Clap your hands together,
lift your arms up in praise
give your day to the Lord
and thank Him for His ways.

While the dew is still set,
on the morning lawn
while the house is dark
before there is a new dawn.

Show your thankfulness,
to the Lord up above
lift up your heart-song
and praise Him for His love.

When your day is finally over,
and the sun dims its blazing light
thank God for His faithfulness
all though the starry night!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 92:1-2
King James Version

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
and to sing praises to Your name, O Most
 High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the
morning, and Your faithfulness every night.”
