I Will Not Be Moved ~

Though, my troubles are many,
and surround me night and day
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will make for me a way.

Though, my burdens are heavy,
and follow me wherever I go
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord’s will I shall know.

Though, my enemies oppress me,
and try to keep me down
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will keep me sound.

Though, my days are numbered,
and the end may be near
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord takes away my fear.

Though, my nights are lonely,
and filled with darkness and dread
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will keep me in His stead.

Thought, I may be weak,
and at times I can barely hang on
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord is my Rock and my brawn!


Psalm 62:6
King James Version

“He only is my rock and my salvation:
He is my defence; I shall not be moved.”

This Is It ~

This is it,
this is what life is about
and in my heart . . .
there is not any doubt.

This is it,
this is all that I desire
and in my soul . . .
true love I did acquire.

This is it,
this is what hope feels like
and in my spirit . . .
faith and trust are alike.

This is it,
this is peace forever more
and in my mind . . .
this is what I was born for.

This is it,
this is what life is about
and with Jesus as my Lord
what is there to doubt?


2 Peter 1:3
King James Version

“According as his divine power hath given unto
us all things that pertain unto life and
godliness, through the knowledge of him that
hath called us to glory and virtue:”

Keep Looking Up ~

Things looking a bit dark,
can’t see His light
getting tired of battling
the same old fight?

Spinning in circles,
going round and round
can’t get ahead
feeling more than down?

Can’t catch a break,
no matter what you do
feel as if the whole world
is fighting against you?

Well, you’re not alone,
others feel just like you
but as Christians we know
what we must do . . .

Look up to the heavens,
put your life in God’s hands
for Jesus is your one Friend
who truly understands.

He’s looking out for you,
believe it or not . . .
and if that’s not the truth
then our faith is for naught.

So, don’t throw in the towel,
don’t you ever give up
for this too shall pass
so, just keep looking up!


Hebrews 12:2
King James Version

“Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him
endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand
of the throne of God.”

Don’t You Hear God’s Echo?

Don’t you hear God’s echo,
throughout the world today?
Telling those who will listen,
to turn and come His way.

Don’t you hear the vibration,
of the warning signs abound?
Giving man another chance,
to turn his life around.

Don’t you hear the clamor,
coming off the wailing wall?
Weeping with the purpose,
to receive the anointed call.

Don’t you hear the rumble,
as the earth begins to shake?
Trying to get our attention,
to enter through His gate.

Don’t you hear the roar,
in the waves upon the shore?
Crashing down around us,
declaring God we can’t ignore.

Don’t you hear God’s echo,
in the thunder up above?
Rebounding with an invitation,
to accept His gift of love!


Revelation 4:5
New King James

“And out of the throne proceeded
lightnings and thunderings and voices:
and there were seven lamps
of fire burning before the throne,
which are the seven Spirits of God.

Thank You Lord,

thank You for keeping my soul

in Your everlasting embrace.

the heartbeat in my prose.

Thank You for answering,
my heart’s deepest prayer

The Apprentice

I am but an apprentice,
with many things to learn.
I study to prove myself,
so His will I may discern.

With fear and trembling,
my Bible I explore and read.
To stay on salvation’s road,
I must let His Spirit lead.

I am my brother’s helper,
assisting him in his need.
Helping him to plant another,
trusting ~ faithful seed.

I reap from the Lord,
in His parables how to act.
And find when I follow them,
there’s nothing that I lack.

I am an aide to my sister,
offering to her a helping hand.
I pick her up when she falls,
and in faith ~ help her to stand.

I listen to what God says,
and wait for Him to show.
The way and the direction,
He would have me to go.

I am but an apprentice,
and I am learning as I go.
Knowing that my Teacher,
helps me everyday to grow.

Right now I am His follower,
helping those who are in need.
But one day the Lord will have,
a whole flock for me to lead!


2 Timothy 3:16
King James Version

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:”

A Time For God ~

A time for patience,
and for some rest
a time to let God
do what is best.

A time for endurance,
to run the good race
a time to stop running
and abound in His grace.

A time for serenity,
in the midst of the buzz
a time to find harmony
as God always does.

A time to listen,
and to be still
a time to wait
for His perfect will.

A time for calmness,
when composure is gone
a time for quietness
so peace can be drawn.

A time to trust,
without any fear
a time for the Lord,
to bring us near.

A time for the Spirit,
to lead from above
a time to linger
and abide in His love.

A time for silence,
and an open heart
a time for God only
nothing to keep us apart.

A time to lie down,
in pastures green
a time to be protected
under His wing.

A time to know,
He’ll never forsake
a time for God
we all need to make!


Ecclesiastes 3:1
King James Version

“To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose
under the heaven:”

I Can Do This ~

I Can Do This ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
I can do this,
I will get through it
for I have Christ
He gives me the grit.

I can climb this,
this I can do
for I have Jesus
and His power too.

I can battle this,
yes, I will win
for I have Christ
and His strength within.

I can handle things,
this storm I can face
for I have Jesus
and His constant grace.

I can do this,
I will get through this
for I have Christ
how could I ever miss!


Philippians 4:13
King James Version

“I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Today ~

Lord, today you showed me,
just how much you care
with the answer
to my prayer.

You reached down,
gently touched my soul
healed this broken vessel
once again made me whole.

Lord, today you reminded me,
of just how good You are
You are my ever bright
and shinning Morning Star.

All darkness is gone,
now Your light does shine
where fear once was
now Your peace is mine.

Lord, today you reminded me,
of Your perfect love
how to keep my eyes
focused on things above.

To see the many things,
You always do for me
You are the living example
of how I need always be!


Matthew 5:16
King James Version

“Let your light so shine before men, that they
may see your good works, and glorify your
Father which is in heaven.

I am But a Vapor ~


I am but a vapor,
a puff of steam in the air
so, I give to the Lord
all on earth I have to bear.

I may be here today,
but tomorrow I may not be
so, I lay up my treasures
in what I cannot see.

I know not His will,
for the days of my life
so, I give to the Lord
all of my daily strife.

God could have me live,
to a hundred or more
but, then again tomorrow
I could be at death’s door.

I know not the future,
my days are in His hands
so, I rest in the comfort
of His eternal plans.

I cannot add any time,
or even take some away
so, I give to the Lord
my every living day!


James 4:14

“Whereas ye know not
what shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapour,
that appeareth for
a little time,
and then vanisheth away.”

If I Had Wings ~

Oh, if I had wings . . .
I’d fly off without delay
and from my troubles
I would get far, far away.

I’d sail over the storm,
above the howling wind
oh, if I had wings . . .
I’d fly up, to be with Him.

Oh, if I had wings . . .
I’d escape all I fear
and sense true peace
as to Him, I drew near.

I’d soar with the eagles,
and find my true resting place
oh, if I had wings . . .
I’d fly on the arms of His grace.

Oh, if I had wings . . .
Lord, I’d fly right to Your throne
and lean on the knowledge
with You, I’m never alone!


Psalm 55:6
King James Version

“And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove!
for then would I fly away, and be at rest.”

He Opens Doors ~

He opens doors,
and hearts too . . .
He knows where to look
for you and you.

You cannot hide,
behind your wall
He knows your name
you’ll hear His call.

You may run,
but, He’s ahead of you
you may be unfaithful
but, Jesus love is true.

You might wander,
and go astray
but, He will find you
again one day.

He will never, ever,
let you go
the way back to Him
He will show.

For, He opens doors,
He’ll hear you knock
and when you return . . .
Jesus will be your Rock!


John 10:9

“I am the door:
by me if any man enter in,
he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out,
and find pasture.”

Deep Waters ~

Deep waters . . .
shallow souls
sinking in sins
bottomless hole.

Stuck in the muck,
with no way out
too many fears
on top of doubt.

Waters of affliction,
bitter ~ so bitter
once faithful souls
now are God quitters.

Troubles teeming,
from both ends
too many enemies
not enough friends.

Rivers of worries,
lakes of mistakes
these drowning souls
forgot sin’s stakes.

Sinking in despair,
going down and down
too frighten to turn
themselves around.

Deep waters . . .
life-giving streams
sin flooded souls
Jesus wants to redeem!


Psalm 69:2
King James Version

“I sink in deep mire, where there is no
standing: I am come into deep waters, where
the floods overflow me.”

Glory, Glory, Glory

Glory, Glory, Glory,
God’s awesome power
strikes in the darkness
at this gloomy hour.

Troubles may be brewing,
but His awesome love
beams down brightly
from His throne above.

Times may be testing,
but His awesome peace
to all of His believers
will never fail or cease.

The tempest is a blowing,
but His awesome trust
keeps His faithful standing
in the strongest gust.

The earth is a trembling,
but His loving flock
knows He will not forsake
those clinging to the Rock.

Glory, Glory, Glory,
God’s awesome wonder
is shaking up the world
amidst His mighty thunder!


Psalm 77:18
King James Version

The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven:
the lightnings lightened the world:
the earth trembled and shook.

Fear Not ~

Fear Not ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Fear not My child,
for I am always with you
do not be afraid
for My strength will ensue.

Fear not My child,
for I am your God and Savior
do not be alarmed
for you shall have My favor.

Fear not My child,
for I will not forsake thee
do not be troubled
for I am able to calm the sea

Fear not My child,
for I hold you in My right hand
do not be frightened
for in My grace you will stand.

Fear not My child,
for My goodness never fails
do not be anxious
for My mercy never pales!


Psalm 27:1
King James Version

The Lord  is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
the Lord  is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?

If We the People . . .

If we the people,
of the USA
would humble ourselves
and pray. . .

Then God would,
forgive us our sin
and bless again
these States we live in.

If we the people,
were to seek His face
and admit to Him
our sinful disgrace.

Then God would,
heal our land
and United under Him
we would once more stand.

If we the people,
would pledge our trust
and see that God’s laws
are fair and just.

Then God would,
give us a new start
and restore to Him
our Nation’s heart.

If we the people,
of the USA
would only ~ be humble
and pray . . .


Isaiah 58:2

Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways,
as a nation that did righteousness,
and forsook not the ordinance of their God:
they ask of me the ordinances of justice;
they take delight in approaching to God.

My God ~

My heart,
God’s hands
my love
He commands.

My time,
God’s ways
my fruit
He weighs.

My soul,
God’s grace
my sin
He erased.

My hope,
God’s plan
my trust
He can.

My faith,
God’s aid
my life
He saved!

you always find ~
