One Simple Step ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

One simple step,
we all need to take
one timely one
we all need to make.

For us to find,
in Jesus our freedom
so we can enter into
His Father’s kingdom.

All that it takes,
is a single little seed
and the grace of Jesus
is all we will need.

For us to be,
saved and forgiven
we need to have faith
in a Savior risen.

Taking one simple step,
of faith in His grace
will enroll you into . . .
the good and faithful race!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Being your own anchor

When friends bail on my plans, when no one is there to deal with or solve my problems, when life is hopeless and unfair, I feel angry. Utterly angry.

Slowly and slowly, however, what I’m starting to learn is that no one, absolutely no one, is responsible for my safety, my happiness, and my problems. In fact the moment I stepped into my university’s extensive halls, walked around the mighty campus, and became a part of the community, I realised that I am one drop in the vast ocean…

I come from a highly protective background where every emotion of mine has always been heard. This little world of mine was my oyster and I was it’s pearl. But out here, nobody cares. My solo trip, too, forced me to rely on myself as nobody seemed to have cared that it was my first time taking 1 flight, 1 train…

A Fruitful Life ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

A life fruitful,
is a life trusting
one the Holy Spirit
is always leading.

It’s a journey,
lasting a lifespan
for God to finish
what He began.

A life fruitful,
is a life faithful
one that is to God
eternally grateful.

It’s a excursion,
into the living Word
an exercise of doing
all you have heard.

A life fruitful,
is a life of growing
one that takes . . .
Jesus knowing!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very thing,
that he which hath begun a good
work in you will perform it until
the day of Jesus Christ:

Colossians 1:10

That ye might walk worthy
of the Lord unto all pleasing,
being fruitful in every good
work, and increasing in the
knowledge of God;

Mesmerising Moon

Peacock Poetry

Whilst out for an early morning jog last week the slithery moon caught my eye! It was laid sideways on top of the hills and immediately made me feel creative. The act of noticing the little details around me and reflecting on how they make me feel is what often inspires creation. What is catching your eye this morning?

Moonily

The slinky moon reclined upon the hills as morning came

Outstretched as if me to remind to play an easeful game

“No urgency”, she said to me in tones deep and seductive

“To rush about is lunacy, just being’s more productive!”

And who am I to argue with that crescent in the sky?

That curvy lady of a muse who holds a thousand Whys?

I’ll bask within the shine that her light filled me with today

That slinky moon’s a sign to be with life in easeful ways

Satan Is At Work Today ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I can see satan,
today is at work . . .
offering the unsaved
evil, worldly perks.

For he is the great,
deceiver and liar
who wants pull the lost
into his pit of fire.

I can see satan,
today is full of power
for our faith and trust
he continues to devour.

For he is the master,
of light in disguise
who seeks God’s saints
spiritual fall and demise.

I can see satan,
is alive and well
for in too many souls . . .
today he does dwell!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:14-15

And no marvel; for Satan himself
is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his
ministers also be transformed as
the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according
to their works.

1 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant; because
your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about,

The Bomb and the 509th

Pacific Paratrooper

Pres. Truman

In a 1958 interview, Truman was asked about the soul-searching decision he went through to decide on dropping the bomb. He replied, “Hell no, I made it like _ (snapped his fingers) _ that!” One year later at Columbia University, he said, “The atom bomb was no great decision.” He likened it to a larger gun.

The components for the 20-kiloton weapon were being shipped to Tinian Island, in the Marianas, aboard the USS Indianapolis.   The top-secret package arrived at its destination a mere 24 hours after the official operational order for the bomb was sent to General Carl (“Tooey”) Spaatz.

Prince Konoye

Prince Konoye, after laboring two years for a route to peace, swallowed poison and died the day before he was to turn himself in as a war criminal.

Sadly, four days later, the Indianapolis was hit by three torpedoes and sunk within twelve minutes…

Holy Spirit Come To Me ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Holy Spirit come to me,
rest right here inside of me
guard my heart, keep my mind
so Your peace I may find.

Holy Spirit come be with me,
support the all of me
lead my soul, direct my ways
hear the words my soul prays.

Holy Spirit come anoint me,
place your seal right here in me
Spirit of Life, Spirit of Grace
may Your wisdom I embrace.

Holy Spirit put Your fire inside me,
release and deliver into me
all Your might, all Your power
counsel me every waking hour.

Holy Spirit my Father’s gift to me,
Spirit of Christ living inside me
Spirit of God, Spirit of holy fear
come whisper truth in my ear!

in whom also after that ye believed,

ye were sealed with…
