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;

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.

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

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!

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 ~ 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!

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

I can see the sky,

I can see joy making

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

I can see the elation,

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 ~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!

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!

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!

out looking for love

but from above.

I thought I’d find,
something real

I didn’t believe,
love couldn’t be found
I had plenty to give
but, none was inbound.

Now I have love,
deeper than man can give

to forget and forgive.

Once I was lost,
then I looked to God above
and I found in Jesus . . .
true, unconditional love!

Having a hard time,
loving one another
feeling shades of green
looking at your brother?

Not very patient,
with your friends or family
finding your spoken words
being said, more angrily?

Looking at the world,
through rose-colored glasses
thinking it’s not so bad
to follow the masses?

Wondering when real joy,
will pop back into your life
tired of all the problems
causing everyday strife?

Well, stop for a minute
and ask yourself this . . .
“Am I letting the Spirit lead
or do I constantly resist?”

For the fruit of the Spirit,
we can only produce . . .
when to the works of the flesh
we become a recluse!

and will heal their land.”

Open Up the Bible ~

All Scriptures ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Need some encouragement,
a big shot of inspiration?
Then open up the Bible,
for a dose of stimulation.

Need some instructions,
on what you should do?
Then open up the Bible,
let it educate you.

Need some idea,
on how to correct your flaws?
Then open up the Bible,
study God’s righteous laws.

Need some bright ideas,
on how to handle strife?
Then open up the Bible,
for living a faithful life.

Need some hope,
a life-changing revelation?
Then make reading your Bible
a daily destination!

2 Timothy 3:16

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

Troubled Waters ~

Cross Pathway by Kevin Carden free photo #19122

I’ve been through troubled waters,
in the turbulence of my mind
I’ve been tossed and shaken
by violent winds of every kind.

I’ve been blown from here to there,
in this whirlwind called life . . .
I’ve been in the many storms
that have only caused me strife.

I’ve been through tumultuous times,
they were long as they were hard
I’ve been through mind twisters
that should have left me scarred.

I’ve been in deep dark waters,
with no sure way to get out
I’ve been in Satan’s cesspool
filled with fear and doubt.

I’ve been through troubled waters,
of every type and every kind . . .
but, Jesus has been the bridge
guarding my heart and mind!

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,

shall keep your hearts
and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Where To Turn ~

When I need some peace,
I turn to John 14:27
then I leave all my fears
on the throne up in heaven.

When I’m feeling anxious,
I read Philippians 4:6
then I give all my troubles
to God to mend and fix.

When I need more strength,
I mediate on Psalm 18:2
then I rely on God’s power
to help me to get through.

When I’m feeling worn out,
I study Isaiah 40:31
then in God I am renewed
and my worries I overcome.

When I am low on faith,
I refer to Matthew 15:28
then I learn to trust in God
even if I have to wait.

When I am feeling unloved,
I turn to John 3:16
then I just bask and soak up
all the love that Jesus brings!
