If We Walk In The Light ~

If we walk in the Light,
like Jesus we will be
and His reflection off us
others will be able to see.

If we act as the Light,
the Gospel we will share
and to the blood of Jesus
we’ll make others aware.

If we live in the Light,
we will be God’s witness
and shine His every truth
on the lies of the darkness.

If we are to be the Light,
God will give us power
to save others from satan
before he can devour.

If we walk in the Light,
our hope will radiate
and the love of Jesus
to others we’ll illustrate!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

Bearing Good Fruits ~

Faith that is voiced,
faith that is shared
is a faith that knows
good fruit it’s to bear.

Faith that is productive,
faith that is fruitful
is a faith God makes
for His kingdom useful.

Faith that is spoken,
faith that is conveyed
is a faith that God needs
so hearts can be swayed.

Faith that is ministering,
faith that is life-saving
is a faith in Jesus
worthy of our embracing.

Faith that is hidden,
faith that we don’t share
is a faith in God . . . .
leading others no where!

James 2:17

“Even so faith,
if it hath not works,
is dead, being alone.”

Matthew 7:16-20

“Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles?

Even so every good tree
bringeth forth good fruit;
but a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit.

A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit,
neither can a corrupt tree
bring forth good fruit.

Every tree that bringeth
not forth good fruit
is hewn down, and cast
into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits
ye shall know them.”

Unashamed and Unafraid ~

Unashamed and unafraid,
tis what I want to be
oh, my sweet Savior
I want to be bold for Thee.

I want to be fearless,
brave and courageous
I want my love for You
to be to all contagious.

Unashamed and unafraid,
to tell the Gospel truth
for You my Lord, I want to be
a dauntless, daring sleuth.

I want to be audacious,
to feel no fear or shame
I want to be bold and daring
whenever I say your name.

Unashamed and unafraid,
Lord, tis all I want to be
my trust and faith in You
is all I want others to see!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 1:16-17

“For I am not ashamed
of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God
unto salvation to every one
that believeth;
to the Jew first,
and also to the Greek.

For therein is the
righteousness of God
revealed from faith to faith:
as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.”

Tweet This ~

I’ve a message,
that I’ll be texting
to all my friends
my faith I’ll be flexing.

I will make it quick,
maybe just tweet it
I know the words
in the criteria will fit.

I will make it fast,
just a few characters
my message will meet
all the parameters.

It won’t take too long,
to tweet or text if off
some will understand it
other’s may just scoff.

It’s really quite simple,
this message I will send
Jesus loves you
and died to be your friend!

John 15:13

“Greater love hath no man
than this, that a man
lay down his life
for his friends.”

Leaving My Footprint ~

Lord, may the footprint,
on this world I leave
be the steps of one
who in You believed.

May it be Your imprint,
long after I am gone
that keeps others
to You being drawn.

Lord, may the footprint,
be a lasting imprint
of one who lived a life
full of the Holy Spirit.

May Your impression,
be left in all I say
let the words I write
continue hearts to sway.

May the footprint I leave,
be not a carbon one . . .
let it be the faithful steps
of one who followed Your Son!

Psalm 37:23

“The steps of a good man
are ordered by the Lord:
and he delighteth in his way.”

Give Me The Wisdom ~

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
to know what to say
so others I may guide
to the righteous way.

Help me to redeem,
the time allotted me
to help blinded eyes
Your saving light to see.

Oh, Lord keep me seasoned,
let me not lose my flavor
so I may lead others
to also find their Savior.

Help me to choose,
the words that will bring
answers to their doubt
You created everything.

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
help me to inform . . .
so others hearts and minds
You can transform!

~~~~~~

Colossians 4:5-6

” Walk in wisdom
toward them
that are without,
redeeming the time.

Let your speech be
always with grace,
seasoned with salt,
that ye may know
how ye ought to answer
every man.”

When CHRISTmas Day is Over ~

when-christmas-day-is-over-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
and the tree is finally down
as the lights are returned
to where they were found.

As we settle back into,
our daily routines
the hope of CHRISTmas
isn’t over by any means.

For, the reality of the day,
you cannot pack away
nor return or store it
back into some attic bay.

CHRISTmas lives on,
in our hearts everyday
for it’s the only Gift . . .
we can give each day.

When CHRISTmas Day is over,
be sure to keep sharing . . .
the Truth, Life and Way
by being Light bearing!

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which
is in heaven.”

Sticky Note From God 11.11.16

My Life Way Made To Please You ~

My Life Way Made To Please You ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
My life was made to praise You,
to lift You up in song . . .
my soul was made to worship You
to glorify You all day long.

My mind was made to seek You,
to claim Your perfect peace
my heart was made to find You
to know a love that’ll never cease.

My ears were made to hear You,
to listen for Your quiet voice
my eyes were made to see You
to be a witness to Your rejoice.

My feet were made to follow You,
to walk in Your very steps
my legs were made to go after You
to follow in Your concepts.

My mouth was made to declare You,
to tell the universe about Your love
my lips were made to confess You
to tell the earth You’re my God above.

My life was made to please You,
to lift You up in song . . .
my soul was made so You’d be seen
amongst the world’s throng.

~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians
King James Version

“Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren,
and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye
have received of us how ye ought to walk
and to please God, so ye would abound more
and more.”
