Joy in Mourning ~

Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

Tonight, I’m purging my sorrow,
I am crying my last tear
I am not going to weep
for, I’ve nothing left to fear.

Thou there is darkness,
surrounding me tonight
tomorrow I will awake
to His gracious light.

Tonight, I’m getting rid of,
all the pain that I feel
the grief I’ve bottled up
so my tears God can heal.

My sobbing He has noted,
they’re in His book of grace
tomorrow night there won’t be
any tears running off my face.

Tonight, I’m purging my sorrow,
I’ll not be crying in the morning
I am not going to weep . . .
for, joy has replaced my mourning!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 30:5

“For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour is life:
weeping may endure for a night,
but joy cometh in the morning.”

Wolves ~

WOlves ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I’m having a problem
seeing things in Your light
for, there’s so much deceit
that I daily have to fight.

I’m having difficulty,
with finding the straight way
for, there’s so many preachers
with something different to say.

I’m having a struggle,
with finding the Gospel facts
for, there’s so many Bibles
where the truth is not intact.

 I’m having some issues,
with getting to the narrow gate
for, there’s so many leaders
who have a shifty gait.

Lord, I’m not going to listen,
to what the wolves have to say
for, I just don’t recognize . . .
the Truth, the Light or the Way.

Matthew 7:15

“Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep’s clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

Satan’s Poison ~

snake_oil_label_by_emptysamurai ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ picture from common files

Booze is Satan’s poison,
it gives you the devil lips
the drunker you’ll become
with each and every sip.

A drink in moderation,
isn’t something drunks do
they guzzle until they finish
a fifth or maybe even two.

Drunken tongues spew fire,
with outbursts that inflame
anyone getting in their way
will surely be the blame.

Drunkards fight and brawl,
at you they will lunge
and the damage they do
can never be expunged.

Lush’s are belligerent,
not caring who they attack
with words so very awful
they can’t be taken back.

If you have a problem,
with drinking of any kind
be filled with the Holy Spirit
let Him control your mind.

For, booze is Satan’s poison,
it is the devil’s brew . . .
and it will definitely make
an alcoholic out of you!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 23:29-30

“Who hath woe? who hath sorrow?
who hath contentions?
who hath babbling?
who hath wounds without cause?
who hath redness of eyes?

They that tarry long at the wine;
they that go to seek mixed wine.”

Ephesians 5:18

“And be not drunk with wine,
wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;”

True Contentment ~

bible-can-transform ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses
You are my portion, O Lord,
You are all that I need
Your goodness fills me up
when on your Word, I feed.

The measure of Your grace,
fills me to the brim
for, when I study and read
Your sufficiency sets in.

With each verse that I tuck,
deep down in my heart
my joy becomes complete
as eternal hope, You impart.

I find peace in each Word,
and the promises they hold
for, they satisfy and keep
my heart from growing cold.

The degree of my faith,
can be found on each page
and the amount of my trust
in Your power is my gauge.

The scriptures refresh me,
they bring peace to my soul
and I find true contentment
knowing You are in control!

I have said that I would keep thy words.”

Shower Me With Mercy ~

Lord, shower me with mercy,
rain on me Your grace
let Your love pour into me
till Your heart I embrace.

Lead me to still waters,
where hope runs deep
let Your compassion
into my soul slowly seep.

Guide me in the valley,
when shadows are there
direct my heart to know
my burdens You’ll bear.

Let me lean on Your rod,
the staff of  harmony
make me to lie down
in fields of intimacy.

Lord, shower me with mercy,
let Your grace rain on me
send a downpour of hope
till in heaven we will be!

God is Patient ~

God Is Patient ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann

God is patient,
He has the time
to work out in us
the dirt and grime.

He uses His Word,
to cleanse within
so from our sins
we are forgiven.

God is unwearied,
He knows we’re blind
that’s why His Son
died for all mankind.

He desires not one,
of us to perish
each soul He loves
we all are cherished.

God is patient,
merciful too
He has the time . . .
what will you do?

~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:9

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise,
as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward,
not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance.”

The Tempter ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

We battle not the storm,
we fight against the wind
the squalls of temptation
beckoning us to sin.

We battle not the sea,
we fight against the wave
the billows of temptation
till to sin we are enslaved.

We battle not the climb,
we fight against the terrain
the rising of temptation
till sin becomes ingrained.

We battle not the descent,
we fight against the plunge
the force of temptation
till into sin we lunge.

We battle not the storm,
we fight against the Tempter
and so into our life’s . . .
we mustn’t let him enter!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 3:5

“For this cause, when I could no longer forbear,
I sent to know your faith, lest by some means
the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain”

Rising Joy ~

Joy Rising~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~

I can see joy rising,
on the horizon
I can see the clouds
beginning to brighten.

I can see the sky,
go from gray to blue
I can see joy making
its glorious way through.

I can see joy growing,
with its fragrant bloom
I can see happiness
chase away the gloom.

I can see the elation,
shinning in the dark
I can see joy leaving
its eternal mark.

I can see joy rising,
above all the pain
I can see the blissful day
when Jesus will soon reign!

Worries Debut ~

Worries Debut ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When worry makes,
its debut . . .
don’t let fear
take a hold of you.

Thrust it out,
as far as it can go
so in your mind
it won’t start to grow.

Then let God,
take it from there
it’s His worry
now to bear.

He’ll come though,
just as planned
so leave your cares
in His mighty hand.

God doesn’t want,
for you to stew . . .
when worry makes
its debut!

All I Need ~

trustlord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

 I don’t need a shoulder,
on which I can cry
I need a God . . .
on whom I can rely.

I don’t need a pity party,
to wallow in my tears
I need a God . . .
who will always be near.

I don’t need sympathy,
for my pain and suffering
I need a God . . .
who’s constantly loving.

I don’t need a shoulder,
on which I can pout and cry . . .
all I need is my Lord and Savior
on whom ~ I can forever rely!

I’m Not a Seeker ~

romans-1_16-not-ashamed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

I am not a seeker,
for I’ve already found
the Lord of my life
who turned my life around.

I am not a looker,
for I’ve already discovered
Jesus is my Savior
how for my sins, He suffered.

I am not a peeper,
for I’ve already came across
the gift of salvation
the day Jesus died on the cross.

I am not a searcher,
for I already have obtained
God’s mercy and grace
and for this I am not ashamed!

Intercessory Prayers ~

Praying Hands by Megan Isaacson free ohoto #13320

Intercessory prayers,
where’d we be without them
for there’s healing and hope
in each beseeching gem.

Petitioning God,
holding others up in prayer
praying with thanksgiving
God to take away the despair.

Pleading hearts,
asking for God’s speed
to come to a saints aid
to help with their need.

Imploring souls,
requisitions for sickness
entreating Jesus to heal
by His stripes their illness.

Begging minds,
requesting mercies relief
for the deeply distraught
those sickened by grief.

Intercessory prayers,
even when we can’t speak
the Holy Spirit intercedes
when we’re too weary or weak!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:26

 ” Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:
for we know not what we should pray for as we ought:
 but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us
with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

Conquerors ~

Your Love Never Fails by Al Freeman free photot # 15805

We can be conquerors,
if to Jesus we run
we can be victorious
if to sin, we shun.

We can be endurers,
if our Bible’s we read
we can be defenders
if to God’s will, we heed.

We can be champions,
if in afflictions, we grow
we can be victors
if the Good Word, we sow.

We can be winners,
if we run a faithful race
we can be examples
if we finish with grace.

We can be conquerors,
if we heed to Jesus’ call
we can be role models
if we share His love with all!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Nay, in all these things we are
more than conquerors
through him that loved us.”

My Anchor, My Hope ~

Lord, tether me to the Anchor,
where I can put my trust
tie me tightly to the Rock
so my faith won’t get crushed.

Securely fasten me,
to the reason for my hope
may the fibers of Your grace
be the strength to help me cope.

Lord, tether me to the Anchor,
who will hear my daily prayers
to the One who will shelter me
while taking away my cares.

Bring me safely to the shore,
when floating out to sea
let the Holy Spirit direct
and constantly guide me.

Lord, tether me to the Anchor,
the Savior of my soul
give to Him in my life . . .
complete power and control!

A Battle to Fight ~

A Battle to Fight ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah nn

Today I am getting ready,
for there is a battle to fight
and I am going to be suited
in the power of Jesus’ might.

I am going to be putting on,
the girdle of truth and grace
then I will be able to look . . .
Satan right in his ugly face.

When the devil looks at me,
he’ll wonder just who I am
but soon he will figure out
I am a child of the Lamb.

I know Satan will tempt me,
it’s become a daily thing
but onto my Lord and Savior
my flesh is going to cling!
