A Heavenly Conversation ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Today I decided,
to have a conversation
with God in heaven
about His expectations.

So I inquired of Him,
what He wanted from me
He responded simply with
believe in what you can’t see.

As we continued to converse,
I told Him about my fears
He said keep to trusting Him
for in heaven there’s no tears.

I asked Him how in paradise,
with Him I could forever be
He said by the grace of His Son
and the faith dwelling inside me.

Today God and I,
had an honest discussion
and to His kingdom . . .
He gave me the instructions!

Philippians 3:20

“For our conversation is in heaven;
from whence also we look
for the Saviour,
the Lord Jesus Christ:”

A Rare Jewel

Baydreamer

IMG_3648

We sit on the shore
feeling inconsequential
in its vast presence,
watching it sparkle
like a rare jewel
that has just been discovered

The dragonflies attend
in their tiny-jet manner
The damselflies gracefully flit about
with their delicate bodies,
and blue, iridescent wings

Then we close our eyes
as tiny threads of peace 
weave into our whole beings,
allowing worries to fall
like the cleansing of raindrops

How fortunate are we
to play a part with nature
in this moment of our existence –
for this point of time will soon transform
into a most profound memory

Look Not ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Look not to the past,
don’t stop and turn your head
instead look to the future
with Jesus up ahead.

Don’t reminisce,
on that which is already done
rather let your heart
to Jesus be eternally drawn.

Look not to the past,
remember not your regrets
instead look to the future
and the soon coming events.

Don’t agonize,
over what once gave you pleasure
rather let your mind
dwell on your heavenly treasure.

Look not to the past,
don’t look to where you’ve been
instead look onto the cross . . .
and the washing of your sin!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-14

“Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things
which are behind,
and reaching forth unto
those things which are before,

I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

King James Version

A Faithful Servant ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Jesus wants you to be,
a faithful servant
He wants you to have
a love for Him fervent.

He will not force you,
you must come willingly
following after Him
is to be done voluntarily.

Jesus wants you to be,
separated unto Him
a decision that is more
than just a passing whim.

He wants you to go out,
and be for Him a witness
He wants you to help Him
with His Father’s business.

Jesus want you to be,
a willing bondslave . . .
He wants you to share
how souls He can save!

“Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ,
called to be an apostle,
separated unto the gospel of God,”
