Sticky Note to God ~10.08.19~


Sandpaper Christians ~

Sandpaper Christians,
grate on your nerves . . .
their abrasive thoughts
they don’t conserve.

Raspy and rough,
full of harshness
need God to replace
their heart of hardness.

Sandpaper Christians,
rub the wrong way
thinking not before
the words they say.

Like an emery board,
that’s lost its grit
forget they are filled
with the Holy Spirit.

Sandpaper Christians,
gruff and so bold
need to learn just how
their peace to hold.

Outspoken and snarly,
their words are brutal
need to seek how to make
their lips more fruitful.

Sandpaper Christians,
on the nerves grate . . .
need God’s wisdom
to set them straight!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 11:12

He that is void of wisdom
despiseth his neighbour:
but a man of understanding
holdeth his peace.

Lord, Let Your Light Saturate My Soul ~

Lord, let Your Light,
saturate my soul
let over my body
it take control.

Let it bring me,
truth and wisdom
let it beam into me
just like a prism.

Lord, let Your Light,
shine down on me
let it help me
Your ways to see.

Let it bring me,
closer to You
let it sear me
all the way through.

Lord, let Your Light,
shine, beam and sear
so that to you Lord
I’ll always be near!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God in the face
of Jesus Christ.

The Heart of My Soul ~

Lord help me to keep,
on my heart a watchful eye
so that it may not for You
shrivel up and dry.

Let me be meticulous,
as to what I let into it
so it is always opened
to the wisdom of Your spirit.

Lord, help me to guard,
the heart of my soul
so that it’ll always be
in Your righteous control.

Let me be scrupulous,
as to what I hold dear
so that it may be filled
with holy awe and fear.

Lord, help me to keep,
my heart to Your keeping
so that my life will be . . .
to You always pleasing!

Sticky Note From God ~05.24.18~


God Has My Back ~

I have personal needs,
individual wants I lack
but, God always has
my spiritual back.

I trust Him to provide,
for me every day
the patience to keep me
on the narrow way.

I know He will grant,
me with His grace
to meet head on
the trials I face.

I have faith knowing,
He will give me power
to overcome temptation
my every waking hour.

I have many needs,
personal wants I lack
but, I always get wisdom
whenever God I ask!

~~~~~

James 1:4-5

“But let patience have
her perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and entire,
wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God, that giveth
to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him..”

Seeking What’s Wise ~

christmas-934181_640

Lord, may I be a seeker,
a follower of Your light
may I have the wisdom
like the Magi’s had that night.

May I travel the distance,
regardless of how far
may I be willing to go
to wherever You are.

May I have the resolve,
to follow where You lead
may I see to Your will
I must be willing to heed.

May I have the tenacity,
not to ever quit
may I be to Your ways
determined to submit.

May I have the fortitude,
to journey into what’s wise
may I  have the stamina
so Your path I’ll recognize.

Lord, may I always seek You,
like the Magi’s did that night
may I have the courage . . .
to follow after wisdom’s light!

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 12.18.15 ~


God’s Always Up to Something ~

God's Up to Something ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

God works in ways,
I don’t always understand
but His plans for my life
He’s giving to me firsthand.

He’s always up to something,
on this, I can be sure . . .
yet when I need a remedy
He will have for me a cure.

No matter what He’s doing,
I know it’s for my best . . .
for when I need  a breather
He provides a place to rest.

When I have questions,
there’s purpose in His advice
if I really heed and listen  . . .
I don’t have to ask Him twice.

God works in ways,
I cannot always see . . .
for He is always working
something good inside of me!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things
work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are
the called according to his purpose.

Seeking God’s Counsel ~

Seeking God's Counsel ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I need counsel,
when guidance I seek
I turn to God’s Word
then I let it speak.

For its full of wisdom,
so divinely conveyed
and I know it is God
who I need to obey.

His Word won’t cause,
me to go astray
for it reveals to me
the Life and the Way.

I trust where it leads,
I’m sure it will show
the righteous path
God wants me to go.

God’s Word is my compass,
its full of His direction
pointing me to my final
glorious destination!

“Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel,
and afterward receive me to glory.”

I pray the Lord will be with you,

I pray you will not leave His side
so in Him, you can restfully abide.

I pray the Lord will stand with you,
give you wisdom, in what to do
I pray He’ll help to keep you still
as you seek out, His perfect will.

I pray the Lord will be your helper,
In Him, you’ll find your comforter
I pray He will show you His plans
as you dwell in His mighty hands.

Amazed ~

Amazed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I fear God for one reason,
and it’s not that I’m afraid
I fear His mighty power . . .
for, it leaves me amazed.

I stare in astonishment,
as I view the works of His hand
how all has come together
at His direction and command.

I worship Him and marvel,
as I gaze out into space
I stand in awesome wonder
of His mercy and His grace.

I tremble and I shake,
my understanding fails me
it’s hard to comprehend
all that I can and cannot see.

I fear God for one reason,
but,  it’s not that I am fearful
I fear Him because I know . . .
He’s absolute and oh so powerful!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 33:8

“Let all the earth fear the Lord:
let all the inhabitants of the world
stand in awe of him.”

God Is Wiser ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~God is Wiser - IBible Verse

I asked God for strength,
but, He made me weak
so that to His will . . .
I would daily seek.

I asked God for health,
but, He made me queasy
so that I would see . . .
the faithful race wasn’t easy.

I asked God for riches,
but, He made me poor
so that I would hear  . . .
Jesus’ knock on the door.

I asked God for happiness.
but, He made me sorrowful
so that for my sins . . .
I’d repent and be mournful.

I asked God why,
I didn’t get my heart’s desire
He told me it was because . . .
I AM so much wiser!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 1:25

“Because the foolishness of God
is wiser than men;
and the weakness of God
is stronger than men.”

My Confidence ~ My Hope

hope-is-in-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My confidence is in the Lord,
for I know He cares for me
I place my hope in Him
not in the things, I can see.

He protects and shelters me,
in His goodness with His grace
with Him any problem
I’m able to confidently face.

I know I can count on Him,
for wisdom and for some rest
for He knows what I need
has for me only the best.

I am so very happy,
for in the Lord I have peace
His compassion never fails me
my hope in Him shall not cease!

the God of Jacob for his help,

Captured Thoughts ~

taking-every-thought-captive CHRISTIAN poetry by deborah ann

Capture my thoughts Lord,
gird me in the truth
let me follow Thy Word
as in the days of my youth.

With childlike faith,
take into custody my mind
keep me close to You
so Your ways I can find.

Control and restrain me,
release me not from Thy hold
may my heart for You
not turn luke-warm or cold.

Let me not be disillusioned,
by the wisdom of man
seize upon my belief
show me Your perfect plan.

Capture my thoughts Lord,
in my mind be in  control
I give to You my life . . .
let not man conquer my soul!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 10:5
King James Version

“Casting down imaginations,
and every high thing that exalteth itself
against the knowledge of God,
and bringing into captivity
every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

Heavenly Hugs ~

friend CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
So long my friend, I’ll miss you,
more than you will know . . .
I’ll miss the grains of grace
that in your blog, you daily sow.

I will miss your knowledge,
the Bible Studies you share
your reminding me always
in this world to be aware.

I will miss your wisdom,
the insights you’ve brought
I’ve grown in the lessons
you so faithfully taught.

You have been a blessing,
a source of my inspiration
for you’ve showered me
with love and appreciation.

You’ve been my on-line pal,
a buddy like no other . . .
it’s like God sent to me
my own blogging brother.

You will be in my prayers,
in my thoughts daily too
and I’ll ask the Lord
to cheer and comfort you.

This is not really goodbye,
for I know we’ll meet one day
and until we do my friend
I send “heavenly hugs” your way!

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

My dear blogging friend Gregory Lang has posted his last post.
My heart is sadden that He will not longer be able
to share his love for the Lord with us. I have
been so blessed by his ministry and ask you to pray with me
for God’s grace and mercy for Greg and his family.

~ I love you Greg ~

Wisdom Above All ~

wisdom CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, keep my eyes open,
so I may continue to see
the Truth, Way and Light
shinning down on me.

Let my ears keep hearing,
the Good News in the Word
so I may be enlightened
to the knowledge I’ve heard.

Let my heart pursue wisdom,
above all other things . . .
so I can discern for myself
the deception Satan brings.

Lord, keep my eyes open,
let me keep Your Word near
so to its instructions . . .
I’ll be eager to hear!

My Shepherd’s Care ~

My Sheep ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Besides still waters, He leads me,
to pastures green, He guides
my Shepherd’s care for me
never wanes, ebbs or subsides.

He feeds me the Good News,
with words that sustain me
He fills me with wisdom
so His truths I can see.

To the land of milk and honey,
where heavenly manna flows
my Shepherd takes me to where
my love for righteousness grows.

He corrects with tender affection,
sometimes with His rod
but, I know His staff of love
will steer me to the throne of God.

Into the valley He takes me,
where I can sip from His well
the spring of Life-Giving waters
keeps my soul from the pit of hell.

Besides still waters, He guides,
to pastures green, He leads me
my Shepherds’ care will never cease
until with Him in heaven I’ll be.

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:2
King James Version

“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.”

The Real Housewife in God’s Home!

Proverbs 31.25  used with permission Creation Swap

The real housewife in God’s home,
isn’t like the one in Beverly Hills
for you won’t see her strutting about
in a short skirt and her high heels.

She has a heart that is spun of gold,
she’s full of wisdom and God’s grace
she doesn’t wear a lot of makeup
to cover her unfaithful, plastic face.

Her husband is pleased with her,
he trusts her to do what is right
she is not quarrelsome or angry
with him she does not pick a fight.

She manages all of his earthly affairs,
she doesn’t have one with her neighbor
she makes her husband proud of her
and in his eyes she holds his favor.

The real housewife in God’s house,
doesn’t go to fancy, pricey dining places
she plants, reaps, and serves her meals
to her families happy, grateful faces.

She isn’t a nosey, busy body,
and gossip to her is a dirty word
instead she shares the Gospel truth
spreading the goodness she has heard.

She isn’t an ambitious career woman,
who leaves her family to fend for itself
she is a strong, dignified, caring woman
who gives God her inner and outer self.

Her husband and children love her,
and respect her kind, generous ways
she’s not like the wives of Beverly Hills
for, she’s given God all her living days!

My Road Map ~

I Have Hidden used with pemission IBible Verses
The Word is my road map,
that guides me along my way
leading me with great wisdom
to help me through my day.

When I am at a crossroad,
not sure of the way to go
I ask Jesus for directions
so the true way I will know.

When I find I’m too weary,
to make it down the road
I pray for His endurance
to help me with my load.

When I get off His path,
and I wander on my own
I get down on my knees
till His way for me is shown.

Yes, the Word is our road map,
the perfect guide for each of us
but we must read the scriptures
if in Jesus we’re going to trust!
