Ye of Little Faith ~

Oh, Ye of Little Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, ye of little faith,
let not your fear betray
the power God’s given
to stay afloat today.

Oh, ye of little faith,
don’t let doubt enter in
keep your eyes on Jesus
not on the mighty wind.

Oh, ye of little faith,
be not troubled or afraid
cast off your anxious view
let Jesus come to your aid.

Oh, ye of little faith,
He will not let you sink
let your mind reflect Him
in everything you think.

Oh, ye of little faith,
your Lord will save you
keep your trust in Jesus
and He’ll come to your rescue!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 14:30

“But when he saw the wind boisterous,
he was afraid; and beginning to sink,
he cried, saying, Lord, save me.”

In Name Only ~

Some say they are Christians
but it’s in name only . . .
and one day they will wake up
to find that they are truly lonely.

Then they will understand,
to be a Christian it takes more
than waking up on a Sunday
and walking thru the church’s door.

Some say they belong to Jesus,
but they share no intimacy
and the Word that they feed on
is the same milk of their infancy.

For if, they were to hear the meat,
they would choke on its sinew
as it would expose their every sin
and their skepticism would shine thru.

Some say they’re attached to Christ,
by their works and good deeds
they brag about, how they go about
taking care of everyone else’s needs.

But, they are fast asleep,
and their works to God are dead
for their pride will not allow them
to be filled or Spirit lead.

Some say they love God,
but show Him not a bit of passion
they neither read nor pray
unless they need His compassion.

They are just too busy,
with other things in their life
and they only go to God
when they’re in a state of strife.

Some say they are Christians,
only for the name . . .
but, one day they will wake up
and stand before God in their shame!

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’
shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he
who does the will of My Father in heaven. “

She Loves God ~

She loves God,
she is in love with Him
and her heart sings
salvation’s joyful hymn.

She knows God,
she prays morning and night
and her every groaning
brings all of her sin to light.

She understands God,
she reads and studies the Word
and her ears are open
to the truth that she has heard.

She trusts God,
she has put her life in His hand
and her feet willingly go
to the places, He has planned.

She believes God,
she has faith in all of His ways
and her soul will follow Him
for the rest of her living days.

She is in love with God,
yes, I so do love Him . . .
and my soul will forever sing
salvation’s joyful hymn!

Beware ~

There is a battle brewing,
it is attacking every mind
it is assaulting Christians
with weapons of every kind.

We are in a for a real fight,
we need to be clear-headed
we must fix our minds on Jesus
so not to fear the dreaded.

Our adversary is like a lion,
and he is looking to devour
all of God’s faithful saints
in this, his final ferocious hour.

He’s roaming all-around,
he is hungry and he is fierce
he is a greedy pursuer
looking for souls, he can pierce.

He is filling our minds with lies,
for he is the grand accuser
he is aiming at our tender hearts
for he is the great seducer.

He is malicious in his pursuit,
he stalks us night and day
he is restless in his chase
he lets nothing get in his way.

This greedy pursuer . . . is Satan,
and to him we must be aware
we must be vigilant and sober
so, beware ~ my friend ~ beware!

~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:8
King James Version

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your
 adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh
about, seeking whom he may devour.”

God is My Refuge ~

God is My Refuge ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God is my refuge,
a retreat for my soul
where life and its pressures
cannot take their toll.

His wings watch over me,
a shelter they provide
whenever I am weary
a perfect place to hide.

He will protect me,
I will not be harmed
for, He has me encased
in His everlasting arms.

God is my refuge,
a safe harbor to which I flee
when I’m being tossed
upon the stormy sea.

When I need strength,
for the troubles I get in
I always turn to the Lord
my refuge from within!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:1
King James Version

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”

From Anxiety to Peace ~

From Anxietry to Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be anxious for nothing,
let not anything cause you dread
let go of the worry
that is filling up in your head.

Be concerned for not a thing,
let Jesus take your every care
let go of all that you fear
and your anxiety He will bear.

Be nervous for naught,
let not your problems stress you out
let go of all your tension
and give Jesus your every doubt.

Be not burdened for anything,
let your troubles not cause alarm
let go of that heavy load
and place it in Jesus’ awaiting arms.

For when we’re overly anxious,
when we’re excessively concerned
our faith and trust we push away
and His peace we leave unturned!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6
King James Version

“Be anxious for nothing”

Happy Resurrection Day


When I Look To the Cross ~

When I look to the Cross,
raised high upon Calvary’s Hill
I see Jesus’ agony and pain . . .
of completing His Father’s will.

I see shoulders slumped over,
a thorn-crowned head hanging
I see where man left his mark
where sin, left its branding.

When I look to the Cross,
where the sacrificial blood flowed
I see the nails in hands and feet
the love for me, Jesus showed.

I see my own sinful nature,
how Jesus’ death set me free
I see the shame of my disgrace
and it takes me to my knees.

When I look to the Cross,
raised high upon Calvary’s Hill
I see the need to die to myself
and do my Father’s will . . .

John 6:38
King James Version

“For I came down from heaven, not to do mine
own will, but the will of him that sent me.”

“It Is Finished”


“It is finished”
words of agony from His lips
“It is finished”
no greater love will again eclipse.

“It is finished”
these words Jesus once said
for the sins of the world
His soul hemorrhage and bled.

“It is finished”
but what really had just begun
was that grace and forgiveness
were bought, for all by God’s Son.

“It is finished”
for you,  it can be a new start
if you repent of your every sin
and give Jesus your whole heart.

“It is finished”
Jesus died so that you’d be free
let His death on the cross
take your soul to its knees.

“It is finished”
but, it’s not the end of the story
not until the day all of mankind
will stand before God’s full glory.

“It is finished”
words of hope from Jesus’ lips
“It is finished”
don’t let His love for you eclipse!

~~~~~~~~~~~
John 19:30

King James Version

“So when Jesus had received the sour
wine, He said, “It is finished!” And
bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.”

Lord, You Complete Me ~

Lord ~ You complete me,
You make my life whole
You protect and keep me
preserve my very soul.

You fill me with Your love,
equip me each new day
You give me the power
to stay on the narrow way.

Lord ~ You complete me,
You make my life anew
You give me Your peace
and my mind You renew.

You fill me with mercy,
cover me in Your grace
You are the future hope
that my faith can embrace.

Lord ~ You complete me,
You make my heart sing
You provide me comfort
under Your mighty wing.

You fill me up with joy,
You make my life complete
tis why I trust in You . . .
to be my soul’s retreat!
