Hold on To Me, Jesus ~

Hand-of-JESUS

Hold on to me Jesus,
I’m losing my grip
hold me ever tight . . .
do not let me slip.

Hold on to me Jesus,
I’m falling apart
hold me ever tight . . .
calm my restless heart.

Hold on to me Jesus,
I am losing control
hold me ever tight . . .
bring peace to my soul.

Hold on to me Jesus,
do not let go of me
hold me ever tight . . .
till its Your light I see.

Hold on to me Jesus,
this burden I can’t bear
come and give to me . . .
Your gentle yoke to wear!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:28-30

“Come unto me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

A Living Hope ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ New Birth IBible Verses

I’ve got me a living hope,
it’s as real as can be
a sure and certain hope
that has taken hold of me.

I’ve got me a lively hope,
once Jesus, I received
a sure and certain hope
His resurrection, I believe.

I’ve got me a future hope,
my death is not the end
a sure and certain hope
into heaven, I will ascend.

I’ve got me a looming hope,
when Jesus comes again
a sure and certain hope
eternal life, I will attain.

I’ve got me a present hope,
that today I can enjoy
a sure and certain hope
every day I can employ.

I’ve got me a current hope,
my faith in Jesus is why
a sure and certain hope
God’s power will get me by.

I’ve got me a living hope,
for the future and today
a sure and certain hope
with Jesus, I’ll be someday!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:3-5

“Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant mercy
hath begotten us again unto a lively hope
by the resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible,
 and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,
reserved in heaven for you,

Who are kept by the power of God
through faith unto salvation ready
to be revealed in the last time.”

God Knows ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahnn ~ God Knows Everything -IBible Verses

Lord, you know our worries,
the cause of our fear
You know when to You
we are far or near.

You know our needs,
our have’s and have not’s
You know our desires
our deepest thoughts.

You know our goings,
all the in’s and out’s
You know when in You
we have our doubts.

You know our weakness,
our strength, You’re aware
You know when to You
we give our every care.

Lord, You know our inner’s,
our outer parts too . . .
You know if we believe
and truly trust in You!

God Never Changes ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ God Will Enlighten IBible Verses

Through the good times,
and the bad ones too
God never changes . . . .
to us, He remains true.

When we become weary,
under the shadow of doubt
it is only because . . .
we shut His true light out.

Today we may be happy,
tomorrow sad and blue
but, God’s love every day
is the same for me and you.

When we become afraid,
in the darkness of dread
it is only because . . .
we let fear in our head.

Through the good times,
and the bad ones too
God never changes . . .
but, so often we do!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:17

“Every good gift
and every perfect gift
is from above,

and cometh down
from the Father of lights,

with whom is no
variableness,
neither shadow of turning.”

Strength to Rise Above ~

~ Christian poetry by deborah ann ~ icando IBible Verses

Lord, lift me up today,
help me to rise and stand
release into my life
the power in Your hand.

Make my mind stronger,
renew Your peace in my soul
remind me You are the one
who’s in complete control.

Show my weary spirit,
Your might is all I need
how strength comes to those
who let You guide and lead.

Reinforce into my life,
the power that dwells inside
remind me You’re the one . . .
who in my heart resides.

Lord, lift me up today,
help me to rise above
any weaknesses I have
with the power of Your love.

Jesus is What You Need ~

Jesus Is What You Need~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann

Losing your way,
in the affairs of life
want to have more joy
a whole lot less strife?

Can’t find the means,
to the proverbial end
tired of looking for . . .
that one true friend?

Getting tripped up,
stumbling all around
wanting something more
but, it just can’t be found?

Don’t know where to look,
not sure which way to go . . .
well, I have the answer
for the hopelessness you know.

There is only one way,
to find true happiness
only One person who can . . .
rid you of your loneliness.

Jesus, is what you need,
the answer to your strife
if you give Him a chance . . .
He’ll forever change your life!

~~~~~~~~~

John 14:6

” Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:

When All is Peaceful ~

ARMOR

When all is at peace,
when your soul is still . . .
when joy and happiness
is all that you feel.

That is the time,
to prepare for war . . .
for, Satan will surely bring
adversity to your door.

When all is peaceful,
when all is calm and serene
wearing your armor . . .
must still be a daily routine.

For, you don’t know when,
the battle will begin or start
you need to be prepared . . .
lest an arrow, hits your heart.

Discouragement and despair,
are Satan’s favorite targets
your peace and your calm
he’ll gladly add to the harvest.

So, when ever you are feeling,
peaceful and at rest . . .
make sure you are ready
and in your armor dressed!

~~~~~~~~~

“Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand against
the wiles of the devil.”

The Stepping Stones of Faith ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ teach-me-your-way-lord IBible Verses

The stepping-stones of faith,
we all need to get across . . .
but, first we must believe
Jesus died for us on the cross.

The steps following are easy,
if on Jesus we keep our eyes
for, He will be our Teacher . . .
the One who leads and guides.

The stepping-stones of faith,
will take us into deep water
but, if we believe in the Word
from the truth we’ll not falter.

Each stone is a step of trust,
for the meek and compliant
if we take them one by one
on God we’ll become reliant.

The stepping-stones of faith,
are right in front of us . . .
but, they’ll be stumbling blocks
if in God we do not trust!

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

1 Peter 2:8

“And a stone of stumbling,
and a rock of offence,
even to them which stumble
at the word, being disobedient:
whereunto also they were appointed.”

Embrace Grace ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo ByGraceThroughFaith IBible Verses

The wonder of God’s grace,
is yours, to embrace . . .
your sins it forgives
your past, it will erase.

Grace is unmerited,
no works to perform
it’s a gift undeserved
your life, it’ll transform.

Grace brings new hope,
to the weariest of souls
for, the gospel of grace
heals and makes whole.

Grace has the power,
to make all things new
if you lack the strength
grace will carry you.

Grace seeks you out,
it knows where you are
for the grace of God
is never very far.

The wonder of God’s grace,
is free for the asking . . .
if you embrace, grace by faith
it will be ever-lasting!

Lord, may this year’s harvest,

May the ground that was toiled,

produce a return for You . . .
that is righteous, moral and just.

May the seeds that were sown,
in the glory of Your grace
yield new hearts for You
across each nation, every race.

May the prayers over the fields,

The Anchor that Holds ~

The Anchor That Holds ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When the winds of adversity,
throw you off course . . .
there’s an anchor that holds
no matter its force.

When the seas of calamity,
toss you all about . . .
there’s an anchor that holds
till the danger runs out.

When the storms of life,
catch you off guard . . .
there’s an anchor that holds
to make them less hard.

When the hazards of living,
come straight at you . . .
there’s an anchor that holds
till you pull your way through.

The only anchor that holds,
is strong, sturdy and sure
Jesus is that anchor . . .
keeping you safe and secure!

On the Potter’s Wheel ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~transform- IBible Verses

 If we’re to be transformed,
on the Potter’s wheel
then as the clay . . .
we must be still.

The process is not fast,
a lot of time it will take
so the Potter’s image
into us He can make.

The clay needs to be soft,
it must be willingly pliable
so from its worthless state
He can make it justifiable.

Once on the Potter’s wheel,
the clay will wobble to and fro
but, He controls the speed
til His mercy begins to flow.

The Potter molds His vessel,
and foresees the finished work
if there’s any cracks or flaws . . .
the clay He is able to rework.

If we’re willing to be formed,
into something beautiful . . .
on the Potter’s wheel
we must remain flexible!

~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 18:3-4

“Then I went down to the
potter’s house, and, behold,

he wrought a work on the wheels.
And the vessel that he made of clay
was marred
in the hand of the potter:
so he made it again another vessel,

as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

Eternally Grateful ~

Praise Him always by Travis Silva free photo #1222R

Oh, Lord when I mediate,
on Your tender mercy . . .
my heart for You becomes
ever-more thirsty.

I want to drink in,
all of Your compassion . . .
I want to bottle up
each drop of Your passion.

Oh, Lord when I ponder,
on Your abundant grace . . .
I cannot, but help to fall
down on my thankful face.

Not out of shame,
but, out of respect and fear
for, Your eternal love for me
makes my eyes well and tear.

Oh, Lord when I concentrate,
on Your faithfulness . . .
my hearts swells for you
with eternal gratefulness!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 100:4-5

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
 and his truth endureth to all generations.

These Feet of Clay ~

~CHRISTian poetry bydeborahann ~ walkchrist-IBible VErses

I walk, I stumble,
I fall down . . .
yet, these feet of clay
will always be . . .
heaven bound.

I stub my toe,
I scrap my knee . . .
yet, these feet of clay
know from Satan . . .
they must flee.

I twist my ankle,
I can’t  get up . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still tastes the victory
of a winner’s cup.

I run, I race,
I trip and tumble . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still remain . . .
meek and humble.

I lose, I win,
I worry, I rest . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still must go . . .
through the test.

I walk, I stumble
I fall on my face . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still won’t quit . . .
the faithful race!

Through the valley of sorrow,
God is taking me . . .
I know not the purpose
but, the future He sees.

Through the valley of heartache,
with grief as my load . . .
I know not the whys
but, God knows the road.

Through the valley of suffering,
I am being lead . . .
I know not the outcome
but, God knows what’s ahead.

Through the valley of pain,
with only tears in my sight
I know not the reason
but, God knows the fight.

Through the valley of sorrow,
God, I will follow Thee . . .
I care not the duration
for I know, You are with me!

Faith, Hope and Trust ~

Faith, Hope and Trust ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

What a precious treasure,
God has given us . . .
what a priceless gem
this word we call  trust.

It doesn’t cost us a dime,
yet it’s more valuable than gold
you can’t find it in a store
it cannot be bought or sold.

It’s free for the asking,
all we have to do is believe
if we ask in faith . . .
the more of it we’ll receive.

The hope we have in Jesus,
will never deplete or run out
the only way to lose it . . .
is when we concede to doubt.

What a precious treasure,
these words are to us . . .
we are full of faith and hope
because in God we trust!
