In Silent Wonder ~

In Silent Wonder ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes in silent wonder,
I stand truly amazed . . .
as I stare upon the earth
and all that God has made.

I gasp at the beauty,
of the sun on the rise
I sigh at its splendor
as it dips into the skies.

I watch the ocean’s wave,
gently roll to the shore
I listen to the restful hush
right before it starts to roar.

I hear the melody of life,
in the songs a bird sings
when all is calm and still
I can even hear its wings.

I see the hills and dells,
show off their golden covers
before unfolding their buds
of wildflowers and clover.

Sometimes I’m amazed,
as I stand in silent wonder
and I thank God for letting me
gaze on all of His splendor!

Look Into My Heart ~

Look Into My Heart Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Heavenly Father,
look into my heart
peel back whatever
is keeping us apart.

Reveal the layers,
of my selfish pride
remove any vanity
still living inside.

Heavenly Father,
pare from my soul
all that’s keeping You
from having control.

Take away anything,
holding me back
where I am weak
take up the slack.

Heavenly Father,
unveil all keeping me
from truly knowing
the fullness of Thee!

~~~~~~

Psalm 131:1

“Lord, my heart is not haughty,
nor mine eyes lofty: neither
do I exercise myself in great
matters, or in things too
high for me.”

In The Garden of My Soul ~

In The Garden of My Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In the garden of my soul,
God’s Word I have sown
I’ve tilled in just the truth
so no weeds can be grown.

I water it each day,
with the verses found within
I cultivate each of them
to train me to see my sin.

I nurture and work,
the scriptures I have read
so they will grow in my heart
not lay dormant in my head.

I gather different verses,
and their roots I combine
so grace and knowledge
can begin to intertwine.

In the garden of my soul,
God’s Word I’ve propagated
and each day I make sure
it is properly irrigated!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge of
our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both
now and for ever. Amen.”

Rx For The Soul ~

Rx For The Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, when I’m feeling down,
when I am sad and blue
I medicate myself . . .
on the loving things You do.

Your Word becomes the Rx,
for my heavy-laden soul
it cures my depression
my sadness it consoles.

When I’m feeling hopeless,
when I am discouraged
I take a shot of Your Word
knowing I’ll be encouraged.

I inject into me Your mercy,
shoot myself with Your grace
until feelings of desperation
I no longer hold or embrace.

Lord, when I’m feeling down,
when I need a dose of inspiration
I simple go to my Bible . . .
to get my daily inoculation!

New Songs of Joy ~

my-soul-sings-how-i-love-you_1024-500x500

New songs of joy,
to You, Lord I raise
songs of thanksgiving
worship and praise.

New songs of hope,
afresh and anew
songs of the love
I have Lord, for You.

New songs of faith,
dance in my head
whether I be up
or still in my bed.

New songs of trust,
to You, Lord I sing
gleefully I proclaim
You as my King.

New songs of joy,
Lord, to You I raise
for You are worthy
of my jubilant praise!

~~~~~~

Psalm 149. 1-5

” Praise ye the Lord.
Sing unto the Lord
a new song, and his
praise in the
congregation of saints.

Let Israel rejoice in him
that made him: let the
children of Zion be
joyful in their King.

Let them praise his name
in the dance: let them
sing praises unto him
with the timbrel and harp.

For the Lord taketh
pleasure in his people:
he will beautify
the meek with salvation.

Let the saints be joyful
in glory: let them
sing aloud upon their beds.”

My Portion ~

The Lord is My Portion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Lord is my portion,
He is my all and all
He satisfies my inner needs
when on His name I call.

I lack not one good thing,
when to Him I injure
He grants my spiritual wants
for He is my faith supplier.

The Lord is my contentment,
He is my true happiness
He gives my heart and soul
assurance, hope and gladness.

I know I can count on Him,
to make my cup full . . .
everything else is just fluff
when push comes to pull.

The Lord is my portion,
on His mercy I can rely
these are His promises
in my life, I daily apply!

With All My Heart ~

With All My Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, may I cling to You,
with all of my heart
may nothing ever cause
the two of us to part.

May I obey the words,
You once gently spoke
to love others as myself
even if I am provoked.

May I walk in the steps,
of righteous, holy living
so I may never have
any doubt or misgivings.

May I keep following,
all of Your commands
may I serve only You
as Your Word demands.

May I use the gifts,
that to me were given
so I can spread the Word
that all can be forgiven.

Lord, may I serve You,
with all my heart and soul
may over both of them
You have complete control!

~~~~~~~~~

Joshua 22:5b

“To love the Lord your God,
and to walk in all his ways,
and to keep his commandments,
and to cleave unto him,
and to serve him
with all your heart
and with all your soul.”

Blissfulness ~

Blissfulness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is a place of calm,
a spot where all can find
peace and tranquility
to fill the heart and mind.

You won’t have to travel,
for it isn’t very far
in fact you can reach it
from right where you are.

Just close off the world,
shut down its interference
then open up yourself
to the Spirit’s influence.

Let Him flood your soul,
with His peacefulness
so He can fill your mind
with joy and gratefulness.

Once you feel it flow,
your heart will begin to sing
of the future blissfulness
Jesus, is going to bring!

~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s Up to Me ~

It's Up to Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s given me faith,
that’s mountain moveable
and it’s up to me . . .
to use all available.

He’s given me power,
that is incredible
and it’s up to me . . .
to do the impossible.

He’s given me strength,
that is invisible
and it’s up to me . . .
to believe in miracles.

He’s given me trust,
that is  inconceivable
and it’s up to me . .
to do the unbelievable.

God’s given me faith,
that’s mountain moveable
so that I would believe. . .
with Him all is doable!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, ye shall
say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove; and
nothing shall be
impossible unto you.”

When The Tough Get Going ~

When the Tough Get Going ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When the going gets tough,
the tough get braver
for they have a battle plan
that’s a real life-saver.

When the tough get going,
they become thirstier
for they know God’s Word
will make them feistier.

When the going gets tough,
the tough get bolder
for they know God’s Word
will make them soldiers.

When the tough get going,
they become hungrier
for they know God’s Word
will make them sturdier.

When the going gets tough,
the tough go to their Bible
for they know it’ll help them beat
Satan, their ultimate rival!

Our Heart’s Desire ~

Desires of the Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If we want God to give,
the desires of our heart
then from His own heart
we cannot be far apart.

For what may be in ours,
might not be in His own
as ours wants and needs
are often selfish prone.

If we want God to grant,
us our heart’s longings
then after worldly things
we mush stop yearning.

For the lusts of the flesh,
our sinful fancies
will only bring to us
eternal penalties.

If we want God to give,
the desires of our heart
then to His ways we must . . .
delight in and never part!

~~~~~~~~

“Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee
the desires of thine heart.

What My Sheep Know ~

What My Sheep Know ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

His sheep hears His voice,
they follow Him eagerly
for they know their burdens
He’ll take from them happily.

They know they can trust,
their Shepherd to guide
and all of their daily needs
He will joyfully provide.

His sheep sing their praises,
they have nothing to fear
for they know their Shepherd
is always close and near.

They know they are safe,
from all danger and harm
they know they’re sheltered
in His gracious, loving arms.

His sheep stay close to Him,
they abide cheerfully
for they love their Shepherd
and stick by Him faithfully!

On Tranquil Seas ~

Smooth Sailing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

On tranquil seas,
I wish to sail . . .
sans any storm
or gathering gale.

Smoothing sailing,
is all I want
no rough waters
to leave me gaunt.

Just blissful calm,
nothing more
no raging waves
breaking ashore.

Peaceful days,
restful nights
no disturbances
in which to fight.

But, this I know,
Lord can’t be true
so I’ll just sail . . .
in closer to You!

In It To Win It ~

In It To Win It ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Beaten, but not broken,
down, but not out
for I’m in this fight
to win the bout.

Shattered, but not crushed,
weak, but not frail
for there’s no way
Satan’s taking me to hell.

Tattered, but not torn,
bleak, but not resigned
for my heart and God’s
will always be aligned.

Fragile, but not hopeless,
mournful, but not blue
for nothing can shake
my faith, Lord in You.

Beaten, but not broken,
for I’m in it to win it . . .
that’s why you won’t see
me ever give up or quit!

~~~~~~~~

Life Goes On ~

Life goes on son,
though you’re not here
time passes by
year, after year, after year.

There isn’t a moment,
that passes me by
when I don’t think of you
with tears in my eyes.

Life goes on,
day, after day, after day
yet without you around
I’m trying to find my way.

There isn’t an hour,
that passes on the clock
when with God I don’t have
a heart to heart talk.

For God brings me comfort,
my pain and grief He hears
and for you, He’s gathering
all of my heartsick tears.

Life goes on,
though you I can’t see
but, in my heart son
you will always be!
