On A Roll ~

Hope is the fuel,
of my soul . . .
it keeps my life
in God’s control.

It powers me,
to onward press
gives the oomph
not to stress.

Hope is the fuel,
in my step . . .
it revs my trust
renders me pep.

It propels me,
to safely stay
close to the Truth
the Life and Way.

Hope is the fuel,
of my soul . . .
it keeps my faith
on a constant roll!

~~~~~~~~~~

Titus 2:13

Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our
Saviour Jesus Christ;

Putting On Mercy ~

Lord, help me to put on,
Your tender mercy
to all those who are
hungry and thirsty.

Help me to be kind,
to those who are needy
keep me always humble
not selfish and greedy.

Lord, help me to put on,
Your loving, forgiving heart
so when I am wronged
forgiveness I can impart.

Help me to be gracious,
give me Job like patience
to all who You send or bring
into my acquaintance.

Lord, help me to put on,
Your mercy every day
so for You I can lead . . .
others to the Truth and Way!

~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12-13

“Put on therefore,
as the elect of God,
holy and beloved,
bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness,longsuffering;

Forbearing one another,
and forgiving one another,
if any man have a quarrel
against any: even as Christ
forgave you, so also do ye.”

James 5:11

” Behold, we count them happy which endure.
Ye have heard of the patience of Job,
and have seen the end of the Lord;
that the Lord is very pitiful,
and of tender mercy.”

Out On The Streets ~

Church isn’t just a place,
for us to gather and meet
nor is it the only roof
for the unsaved to greet.

For outside its walls,
is a world that’s awaiting
and the Kingdom of God . .
we need to be proclaiming.

Church isn’t just a place,
where you go once a week
nor is it the only roof
for the lost to find and seek.

For outside its doors,
are people needing to know
and the Life, Truth and Way
we need to live and show.

Church isn’t just a place,
for us to gather and meet
the real church of Jesus . . .
is out there on the street!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 28:19

“Go ye therefore,
and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the
name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost”

Walking With the Godless ~

When you walk,
from God’s will away
you’ll be on the road
to spiritual decay.

For, satan will come,
with his distorted views
so your mind he can
confound and confuse.

When you walk,
with the godless
your spiritual life
will become a mess.

For, the ungodly,
give worldly advice
to follow it only leads
to spiritual demise.

When you walk,
with the sinful
you better become
for your soul fearful.

For surely to walk,
with the ungodly
your spiritual life . . .
we become sloppy!

~~~~~

Psalm 1:1

“Blessed is the man that walketh
not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

CHRISTmas is Christ ~

what-christmas-is-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

CHIRSTmas is Christ,
no matter what they say
it’s all about Jesus
being born on this day.

It’s not about Santa,
or reindeer on the roof
it’s not about the clatter
of their little, tiny hoofs.

CHRISTmas is Christ,
the Babe, the Child, the Man
it’s all about the Savior
and God’s salvation plan.

It’s not about decorations,
trees or special lights
it’s not about the sales
or our out-of-town flights.

CHRISTmas is Christ,
the Lamb, our Hope, the Rock
it’s about the Price of Peace
and hearing Jesus knock.

It’s not about the presents,
its only about receiving one
for CHRISTmas is Christ
God’s gift to everyone!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 3:20

“Behold, I stand at the door,
and knock: if any man hear my
voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him,
and will sup with him,
and he with me.”

Star Search ~

star-search-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A single star shinning,
on a moonless night
God’s gift to the world
wrapped up in One Light.

Wise men make the journey,
from places east and far
in search for what they know
will be the Morning Star.

With gifts they travel,
to the town of Bethlehem
knowing there they’d find
the Babe, the Christ, the Lamb.

And so they came to be,
face to face with their King
knowing He was the Price
who eternal peace would bring.

One single, solitary star,
still beckons the world today
to follow the Light that leads . . .
to the Truth, Life and Way!

~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not
walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.”

Fully Invested ~

fulyy-invested-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

My heart and soul,
in God are invested
so I call on Him . . .
wherever I’m tested

 I use my Bible,
to help and defend
whatever tempest
that He may send.

I hold onto the truth,
when trials I fight
I know it will lead me
straight into His light.

When storms blow in,
on My Rock I stand
and Anchor myself
right into His hand.

My heart and soul,
are fully invested
tis why I trust God . . .
whenever I’m tested!

I will call upon thee:
for thou wilt answer me.”

Guarding Our Hearts ~

Guarding Our Hearts ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s so important,
to guard our hearts
for God’s treasures
into them, He imparts.

For, our hearts are now,
the wellspring to life
without God’s blessings
we’d have only strife.

We need to be diligent,
to keep our hearts pure
we must remain hopeful
in our faith secure.

For,  in our hearts,
the Holy Spirit dwells
we must protect them
from the fires of hell.

We need to keep them,
with God always right
so He can fill them
with the Truth and Light.

It’s so important,
to keep our hearts guarded
lest we become to God . . .
once again hard-hearted!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 4:23

“Keep thy heart with all diligence;
for out of it are the issues of life.”

The Harvest is Now ~

The Harvest is Now ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The harvest like sheep,
is plentiful
the fields like wheat
are bountiful.

The harvest is ripe,
with the spiritually lost
like sheep they need
to be lead to the cross.

The harvest is ready,
to be taken in
so many needing
freedom from sin.

The harvest is now,
today is the day
to guide aimless sheep
to the Life and Way.

The harvest like sheep,
is bountiful
the workers, like reapers
are but, plentiful!

~~~~~~

Matthew 9:35-38

“And Jesus went about all
the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues,
and preaching the gospel
of the kingdom, and healing
every sickness and every
disease among the people.

But when he saw
the multitudes, he was moved
with compassion on them,
because they fainted,
and were scattered abroad,
as sheep having no shepherd.

Then saith he unto his disciples,
The harvest truly is plenteous,
but the labourers are few;

Pray ye therefore the Lord
of the harvest, that he will
send forth labourers into
his harvest.”

Age of Rejection ~

Age of Rejection ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

We are living in,
the age of rejection
a time where we see
from God a defection.

It’s an era of change,
a time of redirection
from the Truth and Way
we’ve lost the connection.

It’s a movement,
of rebellion and pride
where our sinful lusts
we no longer hide.

It’s a real revolution,
it is not an illusion
for Satan has control
of all of the confusion.

We are living in the age,
of  times perilous . . .
for so many hearts to God
have turned cold and callous!

that in the last days
perilous times shall come.”

Sleeping Saints ~

Sleeping Saints ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sleeping saints,
need a shake . . .
from their apathy
the need to awake.

Snooze you lose,
so goes the saying
if they don’t waken
they’ll be ones remaining.

Sleeping saints,
they’re everywhere
they act as if . . .
they haven’t a care.

Their sleepy souls,
are in hibernation
to God’s truths
they’re in violation.

Sleeping saints,
need a shake . . .
so in the rapture
they can partake!

“Wherefore he saith,
Awake thou that sleepest,

When Light Enters In ~

When Light Enters In ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When you have faith,
Light enters in
when you have Light
you’ll have peace within.

When you have trust,
the Word will guide
when you’re Spirit lead
in God you’ll abide

When you have Truth,
you will find the Way
when the Life you follow
in the Word you’ll stay.

When understanding,
is something you need
the Word will clarify
just how to proceed.

When faith is released,
it ushers in the Light
releasing in you  . . .
God’s power and might!

giveth light; it giveth

Heavenly Gifts ~

Heavenly Gifts ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Heavenly gifts,
from my Father above
wrapped in His goodness
tied up with His love.

So many blessings,
to me He sends
when on His Spirit
my life depends.

Heavenly gifts,
from my Father to me
so the truth and way
I will always see.

Longing to give,
eager to impart
power and might
right into my heart.

Heavenly gifts,
my Father sends my way
His spiritual fruit . . .
for me to grow each day!

Luke 11:13

“If ye then, being evil,
know how to give good gifts
unto your children: how much
more shall your heavenly
Father give the Holy Spirit

Living In the Light ~

Living in The Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When you live in the light,
of eternity . . .
you live a life of hope
peace and serenity.

When you live in anticipation,
of Jesus’ return . . .
you live with conviction
care and concern.

When you live in expectation,
of a future Kingdom
you live with godliness . . .
righteousness and wisdom.

When you live in hopefulness,
of a coming glorious day . . .
you live with diligence
mindfulness to God’s way.

When you live in the light,
of eternity . . .
you live a life of power
hope and certainty!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:11-14

“Seeing then that all these things
shall be dissolved, what manner of
persons ought ye to be in all holy
conversation and godliness,

Looking for and hasting unto the coming
of the day of God, wherein the heavens
being on fire shall be dissolved, and
the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Nevertheless we, according to his promise,
look for new heavens and a new earth,
wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look
for such things, be diligent that ye may
be found of him in peace, without spot,
and blameless.”

No Room For Jesus ~

No Room for Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our government today . . .
no longer in our schools
are we allowed to pray.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our courtrooms today . . .
for the ten commandments
they have taken away.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our society today . . .
for the laws of morality
are filled with man’s decay.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our homes today . . .
there’s too many distraction
keeping Him at bay.

There’s no room for Jesus,
in our country today . . .
for most no longer follow
the Life, Truth and Way!

STICKY NOTE TO GOD ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ 02.13.16


Forget Not ~

Forget Not ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Forget not the Lord,
nor His many benefits
forget not His ways
nor to them to submit.

Forget not to trust,
Him for all things
forget not to reap
the joy He brings.

Forget not to live,
in His presence
forget not to be
meek and pleasant.

Forget not the hope,
nor His perfect will
forget not to wait
remember to be still.

Forget not the mercy,
in all of its wonder
forget not His love
in all of its splendor.

Forget not the Lord,
His graces obtain
forget not the time
He’ll come again!

Back to The Basics ~

Back to the Basics ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In a spiritual slump,
can’t get over the hurdle
your zeal and zest for Jesus
has all but fizzled and curdled?

Going to church each Sunday,
but getting nothing out of it
living the Way and Life
no longer a perfect fit?

Well, it’s time to get back,
to the basics of faith . . .
quit doing the opposite
of what the Bible saith.

You need to be confident,
in the God you trust . . .
keep your nose in the Word
your eyes off worldly lust.

You need to hold on to,
your hope with assurance
continue running the race . . .
with strength and endurance.

You need to reclaim your joy,
recoup your inner peace
recapture your first love . . .
then your faith will increase!

I Hear You Lord ~

I Hear You Lord ~ HRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I hear You Lord,
Your voice I recognize
I’m aware of the wolves
wearing a sheep’s disguise.

I hear You Lord,
I listen for Your inflection
I know the tone they use
lacks truth and direction.

I hear You Lord,
I know its You who’s speaking
I know the false promises
the others are preaching.

I hear You Lord,
Your voice is loud and clear
I know the words others use
are not what as they appear.

I hear You Lord,
it’s only You who I’ll follow
for the voice of the others
are deceptive and hollow!

~~~~~~~~~

John 10:4-5

“And when he putteth forth his own sheep,
 he goeth before them, and the sheep
follow him: for they know his voice.

And a stranger will they not follow,
but will flee from him: for they know
not the voice of strangers.”

there can’t be any deviation.

Hello God,

I need for You to lead me
into complete compliance.

For there are so many,

Because of Jesus,
I have no fear
because I know
He is always near.

He is my Way,
He leads me to
all things good
all things true.

Because He loved,
me at the first . . .
tis why my soul
with joy now bursts!

What if There Was No CHRISTmas ~

Christmas Chaos byJeff Boriss free photo #2242

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no Babe lying in the manger
what if the Savior wasn’t born
to heal the world’s hurt and anger?

There would be no Good Friday,
no Palm Sunday or Resurrection Day
there would be no souls to show
the Truth, the Light or the Way.

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no freedom from our strife
no hope or any anticipation
of having a blissful eternal life?

There would be no everlasting joy,
no chance of a never-ending love
there would be no glorious meeting
with our Savior one day above.

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no trust, no faith, no peace
no virgin birth, no Immanuel
so our pain and tears would cease?

There would be no Prince of Life,
no eternal Lord and King
there would be no motive
for the CHRISTmas songs we sing.

What if Jesus wasn’t born,
on CHRISTmas Day
what then would be the reason
to even celebrate today?

~~~~~~

Isaiah 7:14
King James Version

“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;
Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son,
and shall call his name Immanuel.”
