My Bucket List ~

 My Bucket List ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo Wikimedia

Lord, I’ve got me a bucket,
filled with things for me to do
so the world may know. . .
why I am so in love with You.

The first thing inside of it,
means an awful lot to me . . .
for, I want it to be Your image
in me, that other people see.

The next thing that it holds,
is my desire to lead souls to You
it’s the most important thing
in my bucket, for me to do.

There’s more in my bucket,
that needs acknowledgment
for, I want to be to others
a source of encouragement.

I want to use the gifts given me,
to lead and light the way
to let the fruit of the Your Spirit
on my soul, continue to sway.

I want to keep on growing,
no matter how old I get
I want to be just like You . . .
to love, forgive and to forget.

I want to share my faith
the reasons why, You I trust
I want to live a Spirit filled life
powerful, mighty and robust.

I want to sing to You my praise,
in the shadow of my life . . .
I want to help others through
the misery of their own strife.

I want to grow in grace,
in the knowledge of Your will
I want to help show others . . .
how to trust and be still.

Lord, I’ve got me a bucket,
full of things for me to do
before I leave this earth . . .
to spend eternity with You!

James 2:14

“What doth it profit, my brethren,
though a man say he hath faith,
and have not works? can faith save him?”

Confused ~

live-in-the-bible_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Sometimes I get confused,
with everything I hear . . .
with so many Gospel messages
being hammered in my ear.

One says I must have works,
the other says by grace alone
still some say that for my sins
only grace with works will atone.

One says once saved always saved,
then I hear some one else say
if you want to get to heaven
Lordship salvation is the only way.

Some teach I need to be baptized,
if God, I ever want to see
some preach it’s not necessary
that eternity still waits for me.

Sometimes I get confused,
I feel tossed to and fro
but when I want the real truth . . .
into my Bible, I simply go!

Ephesians 4:14
King James Version

“That we henceforth be no more children,
tossed to and fro, and carried about
with every wind of doctrine,
by the sleight of men,and cunning craftiness,
whereby they lie in wait to deceive;”

From Works to Freedom ~


I tithe and go to church,
I help the needy and poor
but nothing I do . . .
will open heaven’s door.

I read and study,
my Bible every day
I get on my knees
whenever I pray.

I follow the golden rule,
I share the Good Word
but none of this makes me
a sheep in heaven’s herd.

I don’t cuss or swear,
I am gentle and kind
and the peace of God
fills up my heart and mind.

I am faithful and devoted,
I am loyal and just
but none of these actions
are a heaven’s must.

My salvation doesn’t come,
from the good things I do
my own efforts . . .
won’t make heaven come true.

All I need is God’s grace,
to enter into His Kingdom
and faith in Jesus to go . . .
from works to eternal freedom!

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 2:16
King James Version

“Knowing that a man
is not justified by the works of the law,

but by the faith of Jesus Christ,
even we have believed in Jesus Christ,

that we might be justified
by the faith of Christ,

and not by the works of the law:
for by the works

of the law shall no flesh
be justified.”
