Getting Ready for CHRISTmas ~

getting-ready-for-christmas-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I’m getting ready,
to celebrate CHRISTmas
I’m preparing my heart
to be for God a witness.

I’m going to be sharing,
the only true reason
why there even is  . . .
a CHRISTmas season.

I’m calling it CHRISTmas,
not a happy holiday
I’ll not be embarrassed
when Jesus’ name I say.

If I offend anyone,
Jesus I know I will not
for CHRISTmas is God’s gift
not the ones store bought.

I’m getting ready,
to celebrate CHRISTmas
for my Savior I will be . . .
a witness that is fearless!

Isaiah 9:6

“For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given: and
the government shall be upon
his shoulder: and his name
shall be called Wonderful,
Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.”

Boldness ~

romans-1_16-not-ashamed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, give me boldness,
to speak out for You
let me not be ashamed
to let Your light shine thru.

Let me be courageous,
when the Gospel I share
let my words be spoken
with respect and care.

Let me be audacious,
when I speak out about sin
let me not hold back
so souls for You, I may win.

Let me be daring,
with the words I choose
let me not be afraid
to share the Good News.

Lord, let me be forthright,
when the truth I tell . . .
so I may show the way
that leads away from hell!

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

Acts 4:13

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John,
and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men,
they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them,
that they had been with Jesus.”

My Friend and Savior ~

absolute-surrender CHRIStina poetry by deborah ann

Oh Lord, I long to know You,
to feel the wonder of Your love
to marvel in Your grace
so to be called, Your beloved.

May my heart be filled,
with praise and adoration
for You, my Friend and Savior
are the hope of my salvation.

Oh, Lord may I be fruitful,
as I tell others of Your kingdom
may I lead and show the way
to everlasting peace and freedom.

May my heart be surrendered,
to the call You have for me
may I gladly submit to Your will
as I place all my trust in Thee.

Oh, Lord I yearn to follow You,
to make You my priority . . .
give to You my heart and soul
resign over, complete authority!

James 4:10

A Willing Living Sacrifice ~

wearelight used with permission IBible Verses
Father, I give unto You,
this body You gave to me
my heart, my mind, my soul
so, I can learn to be . . .

A holy, living sacrifice,
to heed to Your good will
an open, willing vessel
to offer You my skill.

A light unto the world,
to shine in the darkness
a tiny grain of salt
to rid it of its harshness.

A voice in the wilderness,
to those who are lost
a witness to salvation
bringing glory to the cross.

A tiny mustard seed,
to spread the Gospel Word
a branch on the True Vine
to feed Your hungry herd.

Father, grant me Your mercies,
I need each and every one
if I am to be of Your service
and lead others to Your Son!

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

Romans 12:1
King James Version

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”

How Beautiful ~

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

How beautiful are the feet,
that travel across our nation
who share the Good News
about God and His creation.

How faithful are the lives,
that journey into the streets
who bring the gift of Jesus
to the sinners they meet.

How gracious are the ones,
who leave their own home
so they can bring back to God
His sheep on the roam.

How loyal are the steps of those,
that go out into the world
to spread salvation’s story
so God’s peace can be unfurled.

How beautiful are the feet,
who enter the faithful fight
to proclaim the Gospel Truth
and spread the Way and Light!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 52:7
King James Version

“How beautiful
upon the mountains are the feet

of him that bringeth good tidings,
that publisheth peace;
that bringeth good tidings of good,

that publisheth salvation;
that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!”

If I Were Like My Master ~

Follow Jesus by Susan Helmuth free photo #5035

If I were like my Master . . .
I would walk miles in the sand
I’d take away someone’s burden
lend another a helping hand.

If I were like my Master . . .
I’d be gracious and merciful too
I would comfort my ailing brother
show a lost sister what to do.

If I were like my Master . . .
I’d walk upon the turbulent sea
I would safely reach my destination
encouraging others to follow me.

If I were like my Master . . .
I’d be no longer battle sin
I would show other’s compassion
and their souls to God, I’d win.

If I were like my Master . . .
I’d see the hungry people to feed
I would take and offer what I had
giving them more than they need.

If I were like my Master . . .
I’d spread the Good News all around
I would speak of God’s forgiveness
how in Jesus new life can be found.

If I were like my Master . . .
I’d have a spirit of servitude
humility and meekness
would always be my attitude!

1 John 2:6

Worth the Risk ? ? ?

Go unto all the World by Junny Cruz free photo #16173

Would I preach the Word,
if I knew, I’d be stoned
would I be so willing
if I knew, I’d be disowned?

Would I speak the Truth,
if I knew, I’d be killed
would I be so bold
if I knew, I’d be stilled?

Would I shine the Light,
if I knew, I’d be rejected
would I be so confident
if I knew, I’d be dejected?

Would I proclaim the Way,
if I knew, I’d be refused
would I be so convinced
if I knew, I’d be abused?

Is it worth the risk,
for me to say a word . . .
is it worth my life to share
the Good News I’ve heard?

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

Acts 7:58
King James Version

“And cast him out of the city,
and stoned him: and the witnesses
laid down their clothes at a young
man’s feet, whose name was Saul.”

Only One-Step ~

It only takes one-step . . .
to follow  in His shoes
it only takes one heart
to spread the Good News.

It only takes one word,
to set a soul afire
it only takes one flame
for your faith to inspire.

It only takes one voice,
to make up God’s choir
it only takes one mind
to become a Gospel crier.

It only takes one Christian,
to make a real difference
it only takes one believer
willing to go the distance.

It only takes one-step . . .
planted on the ground
it only takes one heart
to turn a life around!

~~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 22:30
King James Version

“And I sought for a man among them, that
should make up the hedge, and stand in the
gap before me for the land, that I should not
destroy it: but I found none.”
