The Depth Of God’s Love ~

May 14, 2021

Deborah Ann asks some great questions here and shares wonderful verses about the subject of God’s love.

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Have you considered,
God’s love and it’s depth
have you thought about
its profound breadth?

Do you know how deep,
it goes down for you . . .
do you ever think about
what without it you’d do?

Do you comprehend,
the deepness of God’s love
have you surrender your will
for your Father’s above?

Have you marveled over,
how God loves everyone
have you figured out
Your own need for His Son?

Have you ever considered,
God’s love fathomless
do you know for you . . .
it is a love bottomless?

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:18 -19

May be able to comprehend
with all saints what is the breadth,
and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge, that
ye might be filled with all the
fulness of God.

Romans 5:8

But God commendeth
his love toward us, in that,
while we were…

The YouVersion Bible App

April 29, 2021

“O Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You,
I will give thanks to your name;
For You have worked wonders,
Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.”
– Isaiah 25: 1

Have you ever thought about putting a Bible app that might help you with your study of God’s Word on your phone or computer? My wife and my daughter are both using the YouVersion Bible App for their daily Bible readings. It is free, it has just about any Bible version you can imagine, and it is easy to install. You can choose any book and chapter to read from or maybe even a reading plan that will inspire you. I am currently reading a plan that covers the Bible in one year and does so chronologically. As you probably know, the Bible isn’t always in chronological order so I found that particular plan interesting. I can always change to another plan. You can listen to the Bible as well if you wish.

Combing through videos to show you how to get this Bible App, I found this one to be pretty straightforward in explaining how to get it:

You can find all kinds of information about the app on the YouVersion Bible App Youtube page HERE.

105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path. (Psalm 119)

May God bless your time studying God’s Word.

Unmovable ~

December 2, 2019

It is very difficult to capture God’s greatness in words. Deborah Ann’s latest poem is successful in doing just that. Her poem and the scripture it is based on are powerful words.

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

God’s Kingdom,
is unconquerable
His powers
are undefeatable.

God’s mercy,
is unshakable
His promises
are unbreakable.

God’s grace,
is unfaltering
His Words
are unwavering.

God’s love,
is unchanging
His compassions
are unfailing.

God’s Kingdom,
is unshakeable
His powers
are unmistakable!

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:28

Wherefore we receiving
a kingdom which cannot be moved,
let us have grace, whereby we
may serve God acceptably with
reverence and godly fear:

Heard God Lately?

If so, reevaluate.

I agree with Justin Peters because his opinion is based on God’s Word.

How does God speak to Christians?

April 20, 2019

I have the same thoughts when people say “God said (this) to me.” Well stated! Thank you for sharing this video, Maria!

Washed In The Blood ~

September 10, 2018

I hope this new gem from Deborah Ann brightens your day as it has mine. What a wonderful reminder!

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Jesus’ blood,
washed over me
now His love
has set me free.

Free from quilt,
free from blame
for, upon Himself
He took my shame.

Jesus’ blood,
flooded over me
flushing out sin’s
grit and debris.

At not a cost,
His grace I attained
now through faith
I’m no longer sin-stained.

Jesus’s blood,
washed over me
giving me a life . . .
now sin free!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 1:5-6

“And from Jesus Christ,
who is the faithful witness,
and the first begotten
of the dead, and the prince
of the kings of the earth.
Unto him that loved us,
and washed us from our
sins in his own blood,

And hath made us kings
and priests unto God
and his Father;
to him be glory
and dominion
for ever and ever.”
Amen.

“What July Fourth Means to Me” by Ronald Reagan

July 4, 2018

I saw that people were coming here to read this today so I figured that I’d reblog it to the top. CR

Wings of the Wind

Ronald Reagan wrote the following for Independence Day in 1981.  It was not written by someone else for the President.  These are Mr. (President at the time) Reagan’s own words that were written with his own hand:

“What July Fourth Means to Me”

By Ronald Reagan

For one who was born and grew up in the small towns of the Midwest, there is a special kind of nostalgia about the Fourth of July.

I remember it as a day almost as long-anticipated as Christmas. This was helped along by the appearance in store windows of all kinds of fireworks and colorful posters advertising them with vivid pictures.

No later than the third of July – sometimes earlier – Dad would bring home what he felt he could afford to see go up in smoke and flame. We’d count and recount the number of firecrackers, display pieces and other things and…

Mission Possible ~

May 28, 2018

God has blessed us through Deborah Ann once again with an encouraging and thought provoking poem of truth…

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Your mission today,
if you should so agree
is to share the Good News
and tell others about Me.

Your subject today,
could be anyone
who doesn’t know
what for them I’ve done.

Your mission today,
if you should decide
is to let your light shine
on the reason I died.

Your actions today,
might just save a life
and bring someone peace
instead of eternal strife.

Your mission today,
is not impossible
for with Me . . .
all things are possible!

Mark 16:15

“And he said unto them,
Go ye into all the world,
and preach the gospel
to every creature.

Twisted Scripture – Exegesis VS Eisegesis

April 24, 2018

Christian “high” terminology simplified, I always appreciate when this is done correctly as, I think, it is done here.

Tulips & Honey

Last week, beloved, we discussed hermeneutics and it’s roll in protecting us from twisting Gods Word. Today I’d like to talk about exegesis in comparison to eisegesis. These are big, fun words to say, like hermeneutics, but they’re actually very simple concepts to understand and apply.

Exegesis is the careful study of the meaning in each verse based on its context, the grammar used, the original language it was written in, and syntax. For proper exegesis of Gods Word we use the whole counsel of the Bible to form our beliefs. When I became a Christian I had to take everything I had been taught, everything I believed and set it aside, pick up the Bible and let God instruct me. How I felt, my experiences, and my previous training were not allowed to overshadow or muddy the scripture. Still today, when I hear something I don’t understand, or haven’t…

His Stripes ~

March 31, 2018

This sums it up so well…

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

His stripes,
my forgiven sin
His chastisement
my peace within.

His wounds,
my transgression
His death
my redemption.

His bruising,
my iniquity
His crown
my victory.

His sorrow,
my corruption
His grief
my adoption.

His stripes,
my healing
His Spirit
my sealing!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:4-5

“Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.

“But he was wounded
for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace
was upon him;
and with his stripes
we are healed.”
