The Mystery Of God’s Grace ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

What is this mystery,
this thing called grace
what must one do . . .
to meet their maker’s face?

How can One Man,
die for all of mankind
how can He open eyes
to Him that are blind?

What is this mystery,
thing thing call mercy
how can One Man
make everyone worthy?

What is this work,
this One Man has done
what can one do . . .
to be with Him one?

What is this mystery,
what is this saving grace
it is Jesus Christ himself . . .
that one must embrace!

Ephesians 3:1-4

And the glory which
thou gavest me I have
given them; that they
may be one, even as
we are one:

If ye have heard of the
dispensation of the grace
of God which is given me
to you-ward:

How that by revelation
he made known unto me
the mystery; (as…

Fortunately

Peacock Poetry

One of the most sacred rituals in my life is writing my gratitude journal. I do this every evening and it really helps me to take stock and complete the day on a positive note. No matter what the circumstances, there is always so much to be grateful for. Today I’m thankful for the many opportunities the universe is giving me to show up. What are you most grateful for?

Wakeful Grateful

Gratitude evokes success

It helps us joy to manifest

Propels our hearts more love to feel

It’s charismatic, holds appeal

Gratitude helps wealth to grow

The more we reap, the more we sow

Through shiny eyes it emanates

Attractive, high-vibrating state

Gratitude helps cut the crap

It’s what we have, not what we lack

that matters on the day to day

Each time we’re thankful, life repays

Gratitude is always there

Right even in our deep despair

there’s…

The Thread Of Humility ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

The thread of humility
today is running thin . . .
for so many are caught
in the pride of their sin.

Their hearts are hardened,
there is no gentility
instead there is only
the backlash of hostility.

The thread of humility,
today is running bare . . . .
for so many think God
is no longer out there.

Instead they belittle,
those who remain meek
because His righteousness
they still willingly seek.

The thread of humility,
only God can repair . . .
for a heart that is humble
will never fall in despair!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 15:33

The fear of the Lord
is the instruction of
wisdom; and before
honour is humility.

Expansive Nature

Peacock Poetry

When I am out in nature I am at my most present and awake. I notice all of the little details and appreciate the life surrounding me. Honouring my need to commune with the natural world around me is a sacred act. It helps me to expand and gain new awareness. Where is your go-to place when you want to connect to your inner world?

Nature Bulletin

Two squirrels raced between the trees

My ears caught by their rustling

It’s after mindful jogs like these

That nature calms the bustling

Upon wood chip, my eyes did skip

and spied a robin’s presence

Whenever my mood starts to dip

They bring me back to essence

When others are all on the go

To be alone is freeing

I shan’t forgot my mornings slow

My writing time, my being

It’s simpler than we think to please

our souls, no need for hustling

Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Let not your heart be troubled,
let not worry start your day
for Jesus came to give you
a new and peaceful way.

Let not concern unsettle you,
let not stress take its toll
for Jesus will bring you calm
and quietness to your soul.

Let not your mind be burdened,
let not anguish weigh you down
for on Jesus you can depend
His tranquility will be around.

Let not your spirit fail you,
let not despair be what you feel
for Jesus wants your whole heart
to restore so He can heal.

Let not your heart be troubled,
let not it be afraid today . . .
for Jesus will bring you peace
and your anxiety will fade away!

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more
exceeding and eternal
weight of glory;

While we look not…

Life-Affirming

Peacock Poetry

Every day we have a choice. A choice to show up, to live our life force and to make the most out of our day whatever the circumstances. When I find myself drifting into procrastination and self-sabotage I pinch myself and remember what a precious gift this life is. Today my intention is: gratitude. What is yours?

Seizing

You’re not too old, it’s not too late

In your own life – participate

We’re more than all the roles we play

What does your soul want most today?

Of our own dreams, we’re free to speak

Fulfilment comes to those who seek

We’re here to serve, we’re here to give

and also to wake up and live!

What makes you smile, what makes you scream?

What makes your senses feel serene?

When we’re in touch with our own thrill

Our energy to others spills

We do not have to sit and…

“Blesseds” From God ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

“Blesseds” from God,
are all over the place
blessings filled with . . . .
His love and grace.

For the meek and humble,
those poor and the pure
are blessings of hope
to help you endure.

For the thirsty and hungry,
the peacemakers too
are blessings of mercy
God bestows onto you.

For those persecuted,
the ones who are steadfast
are blessings of peace
when with Jesus at last.

For the mournful,
those meek and merciful
are blessings of gladness
in rewards too joyful.

For the world’s rejected,
for His name sake . . .
is the blessing of life
with a heavenly fate.

“Blesseds” from God,
thru the Bible they span
blessings imparted . . .
thru the Son of Man!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:3-12

Blessed are the poor in spirit:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted
