Treasures In Heaven ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Treasures in heaven,
I have been storing
for it is where my heart
has long been mooring.

For worldly treasures,
will only tarnish and rust
but the ones in heaven
on them I can trust.

Treasures in heaven,
I have been keeping
ever since God ~ first
I started seeking.

For they’re incorruptible,
pure and holy
once I gave Jesus
my heart wholly.

Treasures in heaven,
are worth my amassing
for they hold for me peace
that is truly surpassing!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth, where
moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves
do not break through
nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,

Old City Cemetery, Lynchburg, Virginia

John Cowgill: Stories of the Railroad

Gravestones the Old City Cemetery in Lynchburg, Virginia

The city of Lynchburg in the U.S. state of Virginia is a city on the James River that is rich with railroad history, and the railroad still passes through the downtown area. A few miles from downtown is the Old City Cemetery where some of the city’s deceased are buried. Erected in 1806, it is the oldest still in use cemetery in Virginia.

Some of you are saying, “Every cemetery has gravesites where the dead are buried. This place is no different than every other cemetery. Let me say that I am not ‘dying’ to visit this place.”

When it comes to the Old City Cemetery in Lynchburg, Virginia, there is something more. It has graves like any other cemetery. It has memorials like any other cemetery. It has a chapel like many cemeteries. It has an old train station like… wait?…

God Will Always Mend ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I have lived a life of losses,
with hardship as my friend . . .
but I’ve come to understand
how God will always mend.

For there is not a problem,
too great for Him to take
not a soul He can’t change
regenerate or remake.

There isn’t a broken heart,
Jesus cannot repair . . .
not a soul He won’t save
from them depth of despair.

For there is not a worry,
which for Him is too small
no trouble is too imposing
for He came to bear them all.

So no matter what your loss,
no matter where you’ve been
let God repair and mend . . .
the effects of pain and sin!

~~~~~~

Psalm 34:18

The Lord is nigh unto them
that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of
a contrite spirit.

I Can Do It ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I can do it
I can do all things
thanks to Jesus . . .
and the strength He brings.

I can move it,
I can toss it aside
thanks to Jesus . . .
never leaving my side.

I can beat it,
I can make it go away
thanks to Jesus . . .
showing me the way.

I can conquer it,
I can win the fight
thanks to Jesus . . .
who gives me the might.

I can do it,
oh, yes I can
for I have faith . . .
in the Son of Man!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you, If ye
have faith as a grain of mustard
seed, ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove; and nothing
shall be impossible unto you.

bones

House of Heart

There's a sickle of moon

above a lush forest floor

where scavengers pluck

flesh from the bones of

a wolf.

In my mind the wolf

hides inside me

waiting patiently the

impulsive lamb.

Dark heart I hear you

howling for possession

stars plummeting through

our veins.

A frenzy of birdsong

can not conceal the

longing that lingers

in these bones.
