Fire Tested ~

Tongues of Fire by Johannes Stafuffer free photo #5906

Fire tested,
tried through and though
fired tested
for all I do, Lord for you.

Fire tested,
self-reliant or God dependent
fire tested
unremorseful or repentant?

Fired tested,
division or justification
fired tested
defilement or regeneration?

Fired tested,
self-sufficient or Spirit filled
fire tested
my own desires or God’s will?

Fire tested
will I stand up to the flame
fire tested
for all, I do in His name!

The Arms of Grace ~

come-to-jesus CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Throughout my life,
I have found a  place
where I can escape . . .
from the  rat race.

It’s a perfect spot,
to let it all go . . .
a space to unwind
so peace can flow.

It’s not very far,
it’s easy to get to
shutting my eyes . . .
is all I have to do.

In my mind I envision,
till my heart can see
my Lord and Savior
right here, next to me.

Before too long,
His presence is real
and His calmness
I begin to feel.

Throughout my life,
I have found a  place
where I can escape . . .
into the arms of grace!

I Will Praise God’s Word ~

CHRISTIAN poetry by deborah ann ~ Bible by Krist Adams free photo #6082

I will praise God’s Word,
for its powerful and true
in God’s Word, I will trust
in everything I do.

I will behold its wisdom,
it will be my guiding light
the lamp that directs me
whether it be, day or night.

I will praise God’s Word,
I will hold it in high regard
for it will not let me down
its truth, I will not discard.

I will cling to its promise,
to give me, mighty power
I will claim its strength
my every waking hour.

I will praise God’s Word,
for it’s in God, I  believe
other gospels will only  . . .
mislead and deceive!

“In God will I praise his word:
in the Lord will I praise his word.”

Thanksgiving Day Prayer ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann~ Praying with Bible used with permission Creation Swap

Lord, this year bless my family,
not just with food on the table
give them a real good helping
of all things that You are able.

Give them daily provisions,
of hope, mercy and grace
supply them with the strength
for running the faithful race.

Give them eternal patience,
for all the ruts in the road
let them grasp the meaning
of You taking up their load.

Give them daily renewal,
of their mind, heart, soul
fill them with the Holy Spirit
so their lives You can control.

Lord, this year bless my family,
with more than food on the table
may seeking Your perfect will . . .
become their lifelong staple!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:16-17

“For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh, and the
lust of the eyes, and the pride
of life, is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will of God
 abideth for ever.”

A Symphony of Praise ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Sing Praises used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, may I be ever thankful,
today and all year though
may praise and thanksgiving
come daily, from me to You.

May I always be made aware,
of all You have done for me
may I never lose my gratitude
or the love I have for Thee.

May I sing each morning,
a symphony of song and praise
may I lift up my whole heart
as my gratitude, to You I raise.

May I always remember,
the blessings, You have given
may I forever be mindful
You’re the reason, I’m forgiven.

Lord, may I be ever thankful,
to You in every single way
may praise be on my lips . . .
every moment of my day!

Amazed ~

Amazed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I fear God for one reason,
and it’s not that I’m afraid
I fear His mighty power . . .
for, it leaves me amazed.

I stare in astonishment,
as I view the works of His hand
how all has come together
at His direction and command.

I worship Him and marvel,
as I gaze out into space
I stand in awesome wonder
of His mercy and His grace.

I tremble and I shake,
my understanding fails me
it’s hard to comprehend
all that I can and cannot see.

I fear God for one reason,
but,  it’s not that I am fearful
I fear Him because I know . . .
He’s absolute and oh so powerful!

~~~~~~~~

“Let all the earth fear the Lord:

Trusting Jesus ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Whenever you are afraid,
when you feel the burn of fear
put your trust in Jesus . . .
and let Him draw you near.

Whenever you are frighten,
when your heart skips a beat
put your trust in Jesus . . .
lay your anxiety at His feet.

Whenever you are nervous,
when you feel panic’s alarm
put your trust in Jesus . . .
and  find rest in His arms.

Whenever you are worried,
when you feel the jolt of fright
put your trust in Jesus . . .
and soak in, His healing light.

Whenever you are afraid,
worried, nervous or frighten
put you trust in Jesus . . .
and your fears, He will lighten!

“What time I am afraid,
I will trust in thee.”

More Grace ~

grace CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, there is a void,
in the pit of my soul
it feels as if there is . . .
a big, gaping hole.

There is an emptiness,
deep inside my heart
I feel as if my world . . .
is unraveling apart.

There is a hollowness,
that my spirit senses
I feel as if I’m living . . .
under false pretenses.

There is an abyss,
a darkness, I can’t see
I feel as if it’s going to . . .
swallow up, the all of me.

Lord, there is a void,
a big, dark gaping space
I need You to fill it . . .
with more of Your grace!

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

 God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”

Because He First Loved Me ~

Because He First Loved Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I lift my eyes heavenward,
till I envision in my mind
the glory that’s awaiting me
the day with my Lord I’ll be

My heart swells up with joy,
a chorus of praise begins
for all my God, has done for me
for all, when with Him I’ll be.

I feel the burning in my soul,
as my trust begins to flare
I know my hope will carry me
till the day with my God I’ll be.

My spirit sings sweet melodies,
eternal peace they usher in
oh, the bliss that’s awaiting me
on the day with my Savior I’ll be.

I lift my eyes heavenward,
till I envision in my mind
the day with my Lord I will be
all because He first loved me!

What Thanksgiving Brings ~

praise-him-3 free  photo

Thanksgiving brings hope,
where there is none
thanksgiving brings gladness
as praise rolls of the tongue.

Thanksgiving brings calm,
where there is chaos
thanksgiving brings joyfulness
with peace, as its payoff.

Thanksgiving brings trust,
where there is doubt
thanksgiving brings jubilation
to those who are devout.

Thanksgiving brings power,
where there is weakness
thanksgiving brings merriment
healing and completeness.

Thanksgiving brings delight,
to our Father and His Son
thanksgiving brings rejoicing
for all they have done!

Finding Peace ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Perfect Peace - IBible Verse

Peace without prayer,
is just impossible
for prayer makes
all things possible.

Peace without trust,
cannot be there
for trust gives Jesus
our every care.

Peace without hope,
is not able to save
for without hope
there’s only the grave.

Peace without faith,
can’t bring calmness
for faith by itself
can’t bring stillness.

Peace without praise,
won’t make us peaceful
for without praise . . .
we can’t be grateful!

~~~~~~~~

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
 because he trusteth in thee.”

A Merry Heart ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Your Grace is Sufficent - IBible Verses

Whenever you feel down,
whenever sad and blue
I’ve a dose of medicine
I know is good for you.

Take a cup of God’s mercy,
sip it throughout the day
it comes with a guarantee
to keep depression away.

God’s grace is a cure-all,
for all that is ailing you
it’s the antidote you need
on the days you are blue.

You will have true peace,
your heart will be merry
as you learn to trust Jesus
your burdens, He will carry.

Whenever feeling down,
let God’s mercy lift you up
with a dose of good cheer . . .
found in grace’s loving cup!
