The One True Light ~

Where there is Light CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes it’s impossible,
to keep the lights on inside
when there’s so much darkness
lurking on the outside.

Sometimes the truth,
doesn’t shine so very bright
when there’s so much gloom
that clouds up the sight.

Sometimes in the shadows,
the way seems to disappear
when there’s so much dread
lurking close and near.

But, the One True Light,
is always on ~ inside of us
when there’s so much doubt
in Jesus we can always trust!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 1:8-9
King James Version

“He was not that Light,
but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lighteth
every man that cometh into the world.”

God Knows ~

God Plans  for You used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

God knows what you need,
even before you do . . .
He knows the path and the way
that He has prepared for you.

God knows your future,
good things are in His plans
but you must trust and believe
and put your life in His hands.

God knows your troubles,
they are in His thoughts
so give Him your faith today
and let Him connect the dots.

God knows your desires,
He has a purpose and design
they are yours to possess
but to doubt ~ you must resign.

God knows your every need,
they are all in His hand
so there’s no need to worry
He’s got for you a perfect plan!

Show Me Thy Ways ~

Show Me Thy Ways ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, show me Thy ways,
reveal them to me
lead my soul
to where I should be.

Show me Thy light,
be by my side
the road is rough
the path is wide.

Show me Thy ways,
help me to know
guide my life
the way it should go.

Show me Thy truth,
hold on to my hand
the hills are too steep
the mountains so grand.

Show me Thy ways,
each day direct me
the valleys are deep
the path I can’t see.

Lord, show me Thy truth,
teach me Thy ways
let Thy light lead me
for the rest of my days!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 32:8
King James Version

“I will instruct thee and teach thee
in the way which thou shalt go:
I will guide thee with mine eye.”

The Light ~

May the light of my faith keep burning,
no matter what should happen to me
may His Spirit spark and incite my trust
for Jesus is all I’ll ever need.

May the light of my faith keep growing,
no matter the problems I face
may His Spirit ignite and enlighten me,
for Jesus is my saving grace.

May the light of my faith keep shining,
when others try to mislead and deceive
may His Spirit revive my desire and hope
for Jesus is in whom I believe.

May the light of my faith keep glowing,
no matter how dark the world is today
may His Spirit kindle and inspire me
for Jesus is the Truth, Life and the Way!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 14:6
King James Version

“Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Living In The Light ~

Living in the Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Living in the light,
brings about true freedom
it will give you access
to God’s eternal kingdom.

It exposes the sin,
that is enslaving you
as it directs you to the cross
it will show you what to do.

Living in the light,
gives new purpose to life
no more aimless drifting
no more fighting daily strife.

It will guide and lead you,
closer to God every day
for the truth will shine
grace and mercy on your way.

Living in the light,
brings joy and vitality
gone are the gloomy days
for there is a new reality.

No more living in fear,
no more feeling all alone
living in the light
is trusting in God’s Son.

Living in the light,
isn’t very hard to do
but, following Jesus
is all up to you!

~~~~~~~~~

John 8:12
King James Version

“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.”

What Causes Our Feet to Stumble?

What Causes Our Feet To Stumle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo CreationSwap

What causes our feet to stumble,
so quickly in these last days?
Was not Jesus our example,
on how to keep ourselves humble?

Did He not draw a line in the sand,
an expose to all men their sin?
Was He not the One who promised,
salvation would come from His hand?

Did He not still preach the Word,
to all those He came across?
Did He not hold them accountable,
for the truth that they had heard?

Did He not prepare the way,
for the Holy Spirit’s filling?
Did He not tell everyone to fear,
God’s wrath on judgment day?

Did He just give up,
and ask God to save Him from death?
Did He not continue on to drink,
the grace raised in His Father’s  cup?

Did He not face the cross,
with severe pain and suffering?
So then why do we think . . .
we should not undergo any loss?

What causes are feet to stumble,
so quickly in these last days?
Didn’t Jesus set for us an example,
on how to stay meek and humble?

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:8
King James Version

“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss
for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:
for whom I have suffered the loss of all things,
and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,”

If Were To Be Like Jesus ~

To Be Like Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

To be more like Jesus,
we must walk with Him each day
we must take up our personal cross
and follow Him on the narrow way.

It’s an individual thing to decide,
no one can tell you what to do
after the Sunday service is over
it will be only Jesus and you.

As we learn to walk with Him,
we will see the newness in our life
and being just like Jesus . . .
will then become our only strife.

We walk the faith that we have,
the measure of it only we know
but if we’re willing to study His word
in our hearts it’s sure to grow.

There is no assurance,
from His light we will not stray
but if you trust in the Holy Spirit
He’ll keep you from falling  away.

 He will give us divine wisdom,
He’ll lead and guide our way
till He takes us to His Kingdom
where we’ll walk with Him each day!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:10
King James Version

“For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we
should walk in them.”

I am Not Ashamed ~

I am Not Ashamed ~ CHRISTian Poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I am not ashamed,
of the hope that lives in me
I wear my faith openly
for all the world to see.

You asked me to be the light,
to shine Your Word upon my path
so, I share Your truth knowing
at me they’ll scorn and laugh.

I am not intimidated,
by the words and thoughts of man
instead, I rejoice in the knowledge
You will finish what You began.

You asked me to be the salt,
to spread Your favor on the earth
so, I tell the story on my way
of their sin, Your life, new birth.

I am not afraid,
or concerned what man may do
for I know that I am Yours
and they can’t take me from You.

You asked me to follow You,
in my every act and deed
I do so willingly because I know
You will help me as I need.

I am not beaten,
although man may think he’s won
for, I’ve seen the crown of victory
upon my Lord, the Christ, Your Son.

You asked me to be faithful,
my trust in You remains
I know You will walk with me
on the narrowest of these plains.

Lord, I am not ashamed,
despite how man wants me to feel
the Good News is my life . . .
and Your love I must reveal!

~~~~~~

Mark 8:38
King James Version

“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me
and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation;
of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed,
when he cometh in the glory of his Father
with the holy angels.”

The Way ~

The Way by Chris Kennedy free photo
Lord, lead me in the Word,
teach me where to go
make Your way plain
so Your path I will know.

Show me Your truths,
let them light up the way
open my heart and my ears
to the words, You have to say.

Instruct me in patience,
teach me to be still
until I have clear knowledge
as to what is Your will.

You’re the God of my hope,
I’ll wait for Your direction
all day I will pray
to the Lord of my salvation.

Lord, lead me in the Word,
teach me Your perfect ways
make Your path plain to me
for the rest of my days!

~~~~~~~~~~~

King James Version

“Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
for thou art the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day.”

Focused ~

focus Logo by Dave Elledge free photo 3610

Lord, at times it’s hard to focus,
on what You have to say
with so many distractions
that come at me each day.

I open up my Bible,
but the pages seem to dull
and though I see the words
they don’t sink into my skull.

My mind begins to wander,
making it hard for me to see
the Way, Truth and the Life
that is right in front of me.

I struggle with my thoughts,
try to turn them just to You
but, then I start to think about
all the things that I must do.

Lord, at times it hard to focus,
on the things that really matter
there are so many diversions
causing my thoughts to scatter.

So, this morning I am praying,
You will help me out today
by keeping my heart fixed . . .
and my mind on You stayed!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 57:7

“My heart is fixed,
O God, my heart is fixed:

I will sing and give praise.”
