Satan Is Like A Spider ~

Satan is like a spider,
who spins a web silken
in hopes of capturing
any of God’s children.

He stealthily awaits,
for his poor clueless prey
so into his sticky trap
he can cunningly sway.

His legs are like soldiers,
they are deft and skillful
at keeping you enmeshed
in doing what is sinful.

So subtle and clever he is,
you won’t see the snare
until he has you trapped
once inside of there.

Satan is like a spider,
who spins a web of lies
he doesn’t care just who . . .
in his web of evil dies!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 3:13

And the Lord God
said unto the woman,
What is this that thou hast done?
And the woman said,
The serpent beguiled me,
and I did eat.
 

John 8:44

Ye are of your father the devil,
and the lusts of your father
ye will do. He was a murderer
from the beginning, and abode
not in the truth, because
there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar,
and the father of it.

I Thank You God ~

I thank You God,
for Your Son
how He made me
with Him one.

I am thankful,
for the grace given
so that this sinner
could be forgiven.

I thank You God,
for being fair and just
so that in You
I may forever trust.

I am grateful,
to You I can pray
so that I can know
the Truth and Way.

I thank you God,
for mercy evermore
how You always have
for me more in store!

Psalm 136:26

endureth for ever.

The Very Best Of Me ~

Oh, God I want to give You,
the very best of me
so go ahead and search
and tell me what You see.

If there be anything,
You want to alter
my whole life to You
I willingly offer.

Oh, God I want You to be,
in my life clearly greater
so go ahead and try me
till I simulate my Savior.

If in my heart You find,
anything to You grievous
purge it now from my life
so I’ll be more like Jesus.

Oh, God I want to give You,
the whole heart of me . . .
so search, test and try
till more of You I see!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 139:23

Search me, O God,
and know my heart:

When You Lose Your Patience ~

When with God,
you lose your patience
remember with you
He’s more than gracious.

For, He gives you time,
to learn in Him to trust
until your confidence
is stable and robust.

When with God,
you get tired of waiting
remember with you
He’s love is unfailing.

For, He gives you grace,
without measure
as He works in you
His good pleasure.

When with God,
your patience you start to lose
remember that into you . . .
His will ~ He wants to infuse!

~~~~~~

Philippians 2:13

For it is God which worketh
in you both to will and to do
of his good pleasure.

I Can Do Zip ~

I can do nothing,
zip, nada, nil . . .
for I alone don’t have
the will or skill.

But, with God,
I know I can do
what’s impossible
when His strength I pursue.

I can do nothing,
zero, zilch, naught . . .
for I alone don’t have
the heart or thought.

But, with God,
what is unthinkable
with His mighty power
is accomplishable.

I can do nothing,
but, God can do it all . . .
for He has the power
on which for me to call!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me.

My Forever Friend ~

My Forever Friend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann free to use

Some people have friends,
they call them their best
but, I have only One . . .
who gives me perfect rest.

With me He never leaves,
by my side He remains
whatever I need of Him
He never complains.

Some people have friends,
they call them their pals
but, I know of only One . . .
whose love never fails.

With me He provides,
all that I could want
my requests of Him
never come back to haunt.

Some people have friends,
they call them whatever . . . .
but, Jesus is my Friend
who will be there forever!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 18:24

A man that hath friends
must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that
sticketh closer than a brother.

God Is All Around ~

Lord, You are inside me,
You’re in my heart . . .
new mercy each day
You give me to start.

You are over me,
You too are below
on me each morning
blessings You bestow.

Lord, You are around me,
You’re in my mind
every day Your hope
is mine to go find.

Lord, You are beneath me,
You are also above
each day You give me
peace, grace and love.

Lord, You are inside me,
You are beside me too
Your Spirit is in me . . .
and mine is within You!

One God and Father of all,
who is above all,

The Beauty of Salvation ~

May the beauty of your salvation,
cause you to be jubilant
may the wonder of it all
make and keep you exuberant.

May the greatness of God’s mercy,
bow your grateful, thankful knees
may the vastness of His love
your whole heart, happily seize.

May the grandeur of your hope,
make you permanently indebted
may the elation that you feel
forever in your soul be embedded.

May the splendor of Jesus’ grace,
always keep you humble and meek
may your gleeful gratitude
be in every word you speak.

May the beauty of your salvation,
bring to you God’s eternal peace
may your delighted exuberance
to Him you jubilantly release!

For the Lord taketh pleasure
in his people: he will beautify
the meek with salvation.

Light Walking ~

Light walking,
is more than just talking
it’s knowing . . .
when our sins are showing.

It requires from all of us,
in Jesus blood to trust
to help us not to stray
while on the narrow way.

Light walking,
is more than just a calling
it’s a willingness
to avoid all evilness.

Then a real community,
of non conformity
will come together
as hearts to God surrender.

Light walking,
takes more than just talking . . .
it takes with Jesus a relationship
to form a true light fellowship!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7

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.

With Due Diligence ~

 

With due diligence,
we must stay alert
so that satan’s darts
we can safely avert.

For he is the master,
of many disguises
obscuring the truth
is his evil enterprise.

We must keep sober,
we must stay aware
so into satan’s traps
we won’t be snared.

For he is out to kill,
devour and destroy
anyone who doesn’t fall
for the lures he employs.

With due consideration,
we must be forever watchful
for satan distorts the light . . .
and we must remain careful!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:16

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

1 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:

2 Corinthians 11:14

And no marvel; for Satan himself
is transformed into an angel of light.

Dig In ~

When I read my Bible,
I dig in . . .
to see how the race
I can win.

I explore,
until I unearth
all the reasons
for my rebirth.

When I study my Bible,
I burrow in
and discover why
God hates sin.

I sift and poke,
I prod all around
so to temptation
I’ll not be spellbound.

When I read my Bible,
I dig, poke and prod
so I’ll not be ashamed
before the Lord, my God!

~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 2:15

Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.

Lessons On The Sea ~

On the sea of doubt,
I have learned to be
fearless as the waves
come crashing over me.

For, I know to be strong,
even when I’m frightened
my grip on Jesus . . .
must remain tightened.

On the sea of worry,
I have learned to be
not so overwhelmed
by what I cannot see.

For, I know to be brave,
even when I’m terrified
my eyes on Jesus . . .
musn’t be cast aside.

The lessons on the sea,
of worry and doubt . . .
have taught how to shut
fear and apprehension out!

~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not, nor be afraid of them:
for the Lord thy God, he it is
that doth go with thee; he will
not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Psalm 107:29

He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still.

God Knows My Tomorrow ~

God knows my tomorrow,
He’s planned it out for me
He knows what will happen
before daylight I even see.

I know I can trust Him,
to meet me along the way
tis why I have no fear
when I greet another day.

God knows beforehand,
the challenges I will face
I know He will give me
sufficient amounts of grace.

I believe He will lead me,
on the road He has chosen
I trust He has a purpose
for the path He’s woven.

God knows my tomorrow,
so I will seek Him first thing
for I know not what . . .
He’s considering to bring!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:33-34

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the
things of itself. Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof.

The Gold in Silence ~

Lord may my mouth,
to You be pleasing
may my words never . . .
be to You grieving.

May my speech reflect,
the Life and the Way
may I tell the Truth
in all I have to say.

Lord, may my mouth,
heed Your instructions
let my lips not speak
words of destruction.

May I discover,
the gold in silence
may I give my words
to You for guidance.

Lord, may my mouth,
keep it’s lips tight
so that my words
embody Your Light!

Proverbs 13:3

He that keepeth his mouth keepeth
his life: but he that openeth wide
his lips shall have destruction.

The Lion and The Lamb ~

 

One day Judah’s Lion,
will break open seven seals
one day the wrath of God
He will at long last reveal.

One day the Lamb of God,
from each scroll will read
for worthy is He . . .
who was crucified on a tree.

One day Judah’s Lion,
will be crown King of Kings
one day the world will know
the peace that He brings.

One day God’s precious Lamb,
who died for the sins of mankind
will return to conquer Satan
and his enemies for the last time.

One day the Lion of Judah,
God’s sacrificial Lamb once slain
will from heaven’s glorious throne . . .
the whole world will ~ forever reign!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 5:5-7

And one of the elders saith unto me,
Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe
of Judah, the Root of David, hath
prevailed to open the book, and to
loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst
of the throne and of the four beasts,
and in the midst of the elders,
stood a Lamb as it had been slain,
having seven horns and seven eyes,
which are the seven Spirits of God
sent forth into all the earth.

And he came and took the book out
of the right hand of him that sat
upon the throne.

If the Lord Should Tarry ~

If the Lord should tarry,
and I should see another day
I’ll continue to press on
as I travel the narrow way.

If I have to remain,
on this earth a while longer
my faith in Jesus . . .
will only just get stronger.

If I have to wait,
until the Lord comes for me
my hope will see me through
until the day with Him I’ll be.

If I have to linger,
and I’m given here more time
I’ll keep on trusting Jesus
as obstacles I climb.

If the Lord should tarry,
and I remain here another day
I’ll be waiting right here . . .
till with Him ~ He takes me away!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 10:37-38a

“For yet a little while,
and he that shall come will come,
and will not tarry.
Now the just shall live by faith:
but if any man draw back,
my soul shall have no
pleasure in him.

John 10:27

My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:

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!

Putting Faith Into Practice ~

Lord, help me to put,
my faith into practice
so I don’t appear
phony, fake or plastic.

Help me to live,
with hope abounding
so like a skeptic
I am not sounding.

Lord, help me to put,
faith into my behavior
so other’s will see
the love of my Savior.

Help me to perform,
my faith in You out
so I may be a witness
to a world full of doubt.

Lord, let not Your Words,
pass right through my ears
but let them go and do
everything they hear!

James 1:22

But be ye doers of the word,
and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.

To Know the Fear of God ~

Oh, to know the fear,
of God that is awesome
is to learn how to live
in this world with caution.

For, His Word warns us,
to be not the world’s friend
or with it godless ways
to mix in or to blend.

Oh, to know the wisdom,
of Godly instruction
is to know being of the world
leads to death and destruction.

For, His Word cautions all,
to be alert and sober
for the time Jesus returns
is always getting closer.

Oh, to know the fear,
that makes one respectful
is to honor God . . .
by living a life not regretful!

~~~~~~~

Proverbs 15:33

The fear of the LORD is
the instruction of wisdom;
and before honour is humility.

Sticky Note From God ~09.24.19~


When I Cry to God ~

When I cry to God,
for more understanding
to His Word He sends me
for wisdom upstanding.

I open up my ears,
to what He is saying
over what He tells me
I find myself praying.

I search for the treasures,
He Word holds for me
until silvery ray’s of hope
are all I’m able to see.

As I gain more knowledge,
into my heart I tuck away
how to keep His commands
so not to be led astray.

When I cry to God,
when my ears I incline
I find my heart with His . . .
can’t help but to align!

~~~~

Proverbs 2:1-5

My son, if thou wilt receive my words
and hide my commandments with thee;
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom,
and apply thine heart to understanding;
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge,
and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest
for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou
understand the fear of the LORD,
and find the knowledge of God.

Lips Zipped ~

If more people would keep,
their lips zipped . . .
less hearts would be
torn apart and ripped.

If more people would use,
their words carefully . . .
less hearts would feel
so dreadfully.

If more people would hold,
their angry words at bay
less hearts would be
hurt by want they say.

If more people would use,
their words thoughtfully . . .
less hearts would be
feeling so awfully.

If more people would keep,
their lips zipped and sealed
more hearts to Jesus . . .
could be won and healed!

~~~~~~

Psalm 141:3

Set a watch, O Lord,
before my mouth;
keep the door of my lips.

God Holds The Stars ~

God holds the stars,
right in their place
sets the whole earth
into orbit’s race.

He commands the sun,
to up and shine
then tells it when
it needs to recline.

He moves the clouds,
seasons He forms
He controls the calm
orders up the storms.

He tells the moon,
when it’s time to rise
then orders it to dip
right into the skies.

God holds the universe,
right in His hands . . .
for His own pleasure
according to His plans!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 147:4

He telleth the number of the stars;
he calleth them all by their names.

Revelation 4:11 

Thou art worthy, O Lord,
to receive glory and honour
and power: for thou hast created
all things, and for thy pleasure
they are and were created.

Faith Unclouded ~

Faith that is foggy,
makes it hard to find
the road to having
eternal peace of mind.

For, we can’t navigate,
the turns and the bends
unless on Jesus . . .
we learn to depend.

Faith that is misty,
makes it hard to know
how the Holy Spirit
the way out will show.

For we can’t see through,
the haze lying ahead
so that we can be . . .
by Him guided and led.

Faith that is unclouded,
clear and pristine
is faith that believes . . .
beyond things unseen!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.

Bogus Light ~

For Jesus I try not,
to let my light dim
so that I can be . . .
a True Light like Him.

So I’m very leery,
with all that I hear
for wolves like sheep
are too many I fear.

For Jesus I keep,
my light daily lit
it’s in the Scriptures
where I keep my faith fit.

So I’m very wary,
with all that I read . . .
and to false teaching
I refuse to heed.

For Jesus is the True Light,
all others are bogus . . .
that is why in the Bible
I keep my eyes focus!

~~~~~~~~~

John 1:9

That was the true Light,
which lighteth every man
that cometh into the world.

2 Corinthians 11:14

And no marvel;
for Satan himself
is transformed into
an angel of light.
