Destroying The Enemy ~

He comes unexpectedly,
he pounces when all is still
he leaps out of nowhere
so our thoughts he can steal.

He is quick and oh, so sly,
he is constantly deceiving
he tells us bold face lies
to keep us from believing.

He seeks to devour,
he stalks us night and day
he is the stumbling block
on the righteous way.

He is menacing,
he makes our flesh weak
he is evil and wicked
our souls he eagerly seeks.

He is our greatest enemy,
he must be destroyed
and the Word of God
on him must be deployed!

~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:8

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

The Living Fountain ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Thrist No More - IBible Verse

When my soul is parched,
from all the weariness . . .
when my heart cries out
enough ~ to the dreariness.

I go to the Living Fountain,
sip from the Word of hope
praying all the while . . .
Lord, give me strength to cope.

The Word’s spoken by Jesus,
are the streams of eternal life
as they ebb and flow within
they decrease my inner strife.

Anything from my Savior,
is all I need to satisfy . . .
the thirst of this drained soul
just one Word ~ will gratify.

When my soul is parched,
from all the  dreariness . . .
I read my Bible, so Jesus
can quench the weariness!

~~~~~~~~

John 4:14

“But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall give him
shall be in him a well of water
springing up into everlasting life.”

Got Me A GPS ~

Got Me a GPS ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I’ve got me a GPS,
I use it every single day
it helps me to find . . .
the true and righteous way.

Whenever I’m in need,
of some good-old directions
I plug it into my Bible  . . .
for some inner inflections.

It lets me know whenever,
I need to make a turn
it shows the route to take
so in hell . . . I’ll not burn.

I charge up its batteries,
in the Verses that I read
on the road it alerts me
to the rules, I need to heed.

It never steers me wrong,
I remain true to course
for, the Holy Spirit is my  . . .
Godly Positioning Source.

I’ve got me a GPS,
it’s helping me to find the way
and my final destination . . .
is to be with Jesus one day!

I Will Praise God’s Word ~

CHRISTIAN poetry by deborah ann ~ Bible by Krist Adams free photo #6082

I will praise God’s Word,
for its powerful and true
in God’s Word, I will trust
in everything I do.

I will behold its wisdom,
it will be my guiding light
the lamp that directs me
whether it be, day or night.

I will praise God’s Word,
I will hold it in high regard
for it will not let me down
its truth, I will not discard.

I will cling to its promise,
to give me, mighty power
I will claim its strength
my every waking hour.

I will praise God’s Word,
for it’s in God, I  believe
other gospels will only  . . .
mislead and deceive!

Keep Me Thristy, Lord ~

Water Bottle by Daniel R free photo #10215

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my soul dry out
keep me in the Word
where hope, runs throughout.

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my love wane or wither
keep me in the Bible
where joy, flows like a river.

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my heart shrivel
keep me in the Scriptures
where peace, never fizzles.

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my spirit dehydrate
keep me in the Verses
where grace, never evaporates.

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my faith decrease or shrink
keep me in the Word  . . .
where living waters, I can drink!

If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.”

When All is Peaceful ~

ARMOR

When all is at peace,
when your soul is still . . .
when joy and happiness
is all that you feel.

That is the time,
to prepare for war . . .
for, Satan will surely bring
adversity to your door.

When all is peaceful,
when all is calm and serene
wearing your armor . . .
must still be a daily routine.

For, you don’t know when,
the battle will begin or start
you need to be prepared . . .
lest an arrow, hits your heart.

Discouragement and despair,
are Satan’s favorite targets
your peace and your calm
he’ll gladly add to the harvest.

So, when ever you are feeling,
peaceful and at rest . . .
make sure you are ready
and in your armor dressed!

~~~~~~~~~

“Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand against
the wiles of the devil.”

The Stepping Stones of Faith ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ teach-me-your-way-lord IBible Verses

The stepping-stones of faith,
we all need to get across . . .
but, first we must believe
Jesus died, for us on the cross.

The steps following are easy,
if on Jesus, we keep our eyes
for, He will be our Teacher
the One who leads and guides.

The stepping-stones of faith,
will take us into deep water
but, if we believe in the Word
from the truth, we’ll not falter.

Each stone is a step of trust,
for the meek and compliant
if we take them one by one
on God we’ll become reliant.

The stepping-stones of faith,
are right in front of us . . .
but, they’ll be stumbling blocks
if in God ~ we do not trust!

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

“And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence,
even to them which stumble at the word,
being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.”

True Contentment ~

bible-can-transform ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses
You are my portion, O Lord,
You are all that I need
Your goodness fills me up
when on your Word, I feed.

The measure of Your grace,
fills me to the brim
for, when I study and read
Your sufficiency sets in.

With each verse that I tuck,
deep down in my heart
my joy becomes complete
as eternal hope, You impart.

I find peace in each Word,
and the promises they hold
for, they satisfy and keep
my heart from growing cold.

The degree of my faith,
can be found on each page
and the amount of my trust
in Your power is my gauge.

The scriptures refresh me,
they bring peace to my soul
and I find true contentment
knowing You are in control!

I Delight In His Word ~

Live In The Bible ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

My faith in God keeps growing,
it’s getting sturdier everyday
for, I delight myself in His Word
no matter the time of day.

The Word of God is nourishment,
day or night, it makes me strong
it brings refreshment to my soul
it’s where my heart belongs.

There is a continuous renewal,
flowing right out of my Bible
daily there’s a Godly influence
no matter my burden or trial.

I can see the fruit of His Spirit,
maturing right inside of me . . .
no matter the time of the season
I know in God’s Word, I will be.

My faith in God keeps growing,
to the truth, my life I dedicate
I delight myself in His Word
as on the Scriptures I meditate!

Where To Turn ~

When I need some peace,
I turn to John 14:27
then I leave all my fears
on the throne up in heaven.

When I’m feeling anxious,
I read Philippians 4:6
then I give all my troubles
to God to mend and fix.

When I need more strength,
I mediate on Psalm 18:2
then I rely on God’s power
to help me to get through.

When I’m feeling worn out,
I study Isaiah 40:31
then in God I am renewed
and my worries I overcome.

When I am low on faith,
I refer to Matthew 15:28
then I learn to trust in God
even if I have to wait.

When I am feeling unloved,
I turn to John 3:16
then I just bask and soak up
all the love that Jesus brings!

Just Read and Turn the Pages!

Cleaning Up This Temple!

All things New by Michael McFatridge free photo #11721
This Spring ~

I’m doing me some cleaning,
I’m getting rid of sin’s pollution
and the Word of God will be
my cleansing solution.

Going to go down deep,
scour the cracks and crevices
make sure there’s no hidden sin
still lurking around the premises.

I’ll need to wash away the grime,
the remaining filth and stain
need to scrub through and through
no matter how much the pain.

This Spring ~

I’m doing me some cleaning,
I’m clearing out this temple
and Jesus is going to be . . .
my only living example!

~~~~~~~~

A Heart Full of Grace ~

Grace by Nathan Furr free photo #12440

When a heart is full of grace,
it is a heart that is kind
compassion for others
it always tries to find.

It puts on humility,
wears the cloak of patience
it dresses itself with modesty
wears the robe of justice.

It is wrapped in peace,
It’s covered in forgiveness
drapes itself with love
it’s swathed in gentleness.

When a heart is full of grace,
gratitude is its garment
the Word of God . . .
is its wardrobe requirement!

~~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12
King James Version

Put on therefore, as the elect of God,
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness, longsuffering;”

Wrong Side of The Bed ~

your-spirit-is-strong-in-me_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, this morning I woke up,
on the wrong side of the bed
my mind was overwhelmed
with the day that was ahead.

I grabbed a cup of coffee,
picked up a good devotional
but I really wasn’t into it
didn’t find it to be consolable.

I gathered up my Bible,
read a verse or two . . .
but I really wasn’t focused
for the truth to get through.

My day didn’t get better,
it showed in my attitude
I wasn’t very kind or patient
didn’t give too much latitude.

Now that the evening’s here,
as I reflect upon my day
I can see how weak I am
when to Your Word I disobey.

Lord, this morning I woke up,
on the wrong side of the bed
so tonight, I’ll try the other side
and pray tomorrow, I’ll be spirit lead!

Getting My House In Order!

As For Me and My House used with permission Doorstop Verses

I’m getting my house in order,
I’m cleaning up the grime
gonna get rid of the things
that are just a waste of time.

I’m clearing out the closets,
throwing away all my stuff
gonna toss out the frivolity
and get rid of the useless fluff.

I’m going from room to room,
until all my idols I uncover
gonna give every one away
so my God ~ I can rediscover.

Then I’m going to spend,
my free time in the Word
I’ll be picking up my Bible
and getting closer to my Lord.

Like Wise Men ~

Star used with permission Creation Swap

This Christmas . . .

Let us be as the Wise Men,
who came from afar
let us each search for God
right here, where we are.

He’ll lead us with His Word,
His Spirit will show us the way
just as the star led the Wise Men
to baby Jesus, Christmas day.

Let’s give our hearts to Jesus,
like Wise Men, offer up our praise
as we worship and adore Him
let our treasures, to Him be raised.

Let’s surrender to Him our life,
give Jesus everything we hold
our worldly sacrifices for Him
are more precious than any gold.

Let’s bring to Him our prayers,
our hopes, plans and dreams
let the aroma of frankincense
rise up to the King, who redeems.

Let’s give Him all our pain,
heartache, grief and suffering
let the fragrance of  myrrh
be our thankful offering.

Let us be as the Wise Men,
who came from afar . . .
let us give unto Jesus
all we have ~ all we are!

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

Matthew 2:10-11
King James Version

“When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child

and when they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

A 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!

The Word of God ~

His Presence used with permission IBible Verses

The Word of God is alive,
active and ever-living
piercing through the soul
of every human being.

It’s the world’s worst critic,
everyone’s eternal judge
it carves out the sinfulness
as it slices through the sludge.

God uses it as a scalpel,
to sever mankind’s disbelief
it brings to every soul
the promise of eternal relief.

No soul is too dark or evil,
that it cannot penetrate
no heart is too cold or tough
that it cannot permeate.

The Word of God is piercing,
it cuts through and through
and if you were to let it . . .
it’ll carve His image inside you!

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

Hebrews 4:12
King James Version

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
 and sharper than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

I Didn’t Know!

God Has A Purpose used with permission IBible Verses

I didn’t know back then,
God had a plan for me
I didn’t know the designs
He had in store for me.

I wasn’t lead to the Word,
to see it with my own eyes
I didn’t know I had a future
to this ~ I wasn’t made wise.

I didn’t know to pray,
to ask Him for direction
I didn’t know my ignorance
would cause our separation.

I didn’t know I was to study,
the Bible or to read the Word
and when I went to church
these needs I never heard.

I wasn’t aware He declared,
the path He wanted me on
I wasn’t aware I was lost
til many years were gone.

I wish when I were young,
someone would have told me
there was a path God designed
and a purpose He had for me!

What is The Bible ~

What is the Bible ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Bible is the breath of God,
profitable for teaching
it’s a reproof and a correction
to use for righteous training.

It’s the Living Word of God,
it makes us competent and able
it equips us for good works
keeping our lives in Him stable.

It is a lamp to our feet,
a light unto our path
when we choose to follow it
it will keep us from God’s wrath.

It’s to be used for mediation,
all our living nights and days
it is the Bread of Life
that shows us our evil ways.

It instructs us on endurance,
encourages us in the faithful race
it persuades us to continue
to seek and find God’s face.

It is living and it active,
it’s as sharp as a two edge sword
it pierces through the heart
so our souls can be restored.

It’s a wonder to the open eye,
out of the law comes salvation
it’s the pure spiritual milk
spilling forth God’s revelation.

It’s to be stored in our hearts,
it will keep us from sin
it’s to be used in our daily battles
so over the enemy we will win.

It will guard our hearts and minds,
it will keep us in perfect peace
and we should always keep  . . .
our Bible’s within close reach.

But, for some it sits on their shelf,
other’s shove it in a drawer
and most just don’t make the time
to read the Bible anymore!

In Your Light ~

Light of Scripture by Aaron Burden free phto #18227

Lord, Your Word is the lamp,
that guides us along the way
the Light in the darkness
that begins with each new day.

A purpose You have planned,
for every one of our steps
if only we would just believe
and follow Your concepts.

You know the path we must  take,
the way in which we should go
You have gone out before us
and the way You want to show.

Sometimes we talk the talk,
and we say we follow after You
but, if the truth were to be told
it is not always what we do.

For we are all born of sin,
and there is nothing we can do
the only way to walk the talk
is hand in hand with You.

I know alone we are nothing,
and we’ll surely lose our way
unless we rise in Your Light
and pray for guidance every day!

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
