About Deborah Ann

I love the Lord with all my heart and soul. My Holy Spirit inspired poetry tells of my trust in God, my faith in Christ Jesus my Savior and my journey into finding peace that truly passes all understanding. I pray it will be a blessing to all who read it ~ To God Be The Glory! ~

When God Sends Trials ~

When God sends us,
trials along our way
on our knees we need
to get down and pray.

For we will need,
a lot of His strength
so to keep our fear
at arm’s length.

When God delivers,
what to us is a blow
to the throne of grace
we need to at once go.

For we need not panic,
or think that it’s odd
for these flaming testings
to come from God.

When God sends us,
trials fiery and blazing
just think about the joy
for you that is awaiting!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:12-13

Beloved, think it not strange
concerning the fiery trial
which is to try you, as though
some strange thing happened
unto you:

But rejoice, inasmuch
as ye are partakers of
Christ’s sufferings;
that, when his glory
shall be revealed,
ye may be glad also
with exceeding joy.

Matthew 4:17


Oh, My Unrepentant Friend ~

Oh my unrepentant friend,
don’t think you are good
for not one person . . .
does as they should.

That hate that you have,
embedded in your heart
will keep you and God
distant and far apart.

Oh, my tolerant friend,
don’t you be deceived
for everyone by sin
is sick and diseased.

By your liberal thinking,
you are being lead astray
the road you’re now on
is not the narrow way.

Oh, my progressive friends,
for you it’s not too late . . .
to turn back to the truth
leading to the straight gate!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.

God’s Gift Of Hope ~

God’s gift of hope,
is heaven sent . . .
for He sees how often
we’re tired and spent.

So He sends to us,
hope each day anew
so our faith in Him
we can daily renew.

God’s gift of hope,
is ours to hold onto
the closer to Jesus . . .
we press into.

For He knew we’d need,
His love and grace
so He gave us hope
to finish the race.

Hope is God’s gift,
to all of us . . .
when we place in Jesus
our faith and trust!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:19

If in this life only we
have hope in Christ,
we are of all men
most miserable.

Colossians 2:6-7


Anchor Of Our Soul ~

An Anchor to the soul,
the hope of our certainty
Jesus became the way
to everlasting eternity.

Sure and steadfast,
in the truth grounded
our salvation in Him
is securely founded.

The veil has been lifted,
through Christ we enter in
in His righteousness
no longer bound to sin.

To His Father in heaven,
He gave us the boldness
to approach His throne
in the cloak of newness.

The Anchor of our soul,
Jesus is our security . . .
for He paid sin’s penalty
giving us all impunity!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 6:19

Which hope we have
as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into
that within the veil;

1 John 2:6


Lord, May I Too ~

Lord, give me a faith,
just the same as Yours . . .
so I may too cross the sea
and meet You where You are.

Give me an attitude,
absent of any doubt
so I may too trust You
from my boat to come out.

Lord, give me a faith,
steadfast and true
so I may too be brave
to cross over to You.

Give me a nature,
bold and unafraid
so I may too embrace
how not to be dismayed.

Lord, give me a faith
just like You profess . . .
so I may too my fears
in Your name suppress!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 14:25-29

And in the fourth watch
of the night Jesus went
unto them, walking on the sea.

And when the disciples saw
him walking on the sea,
they were troubled, saying,
It is a spirit; and they cried
out for fear.

But straightway Jesus
spake unto them, saying,
Be of good cheer;
it is I; be not afraid.

And Peter answered
him and said, Lord,
if it be thou, bid me
come unto thee on the water.

And he said, Come.
And when Peter was
come down out of the ship,
he walked on the water,
to go to Jesus.

Proverbs 4:23


Here’s My Heart Lord ~

Here’s my heart Lord,
it’s covered in red . . .
reflecting the blood
for me You shed.

It once was a heart,
cold like a stone
but now it is one
that has been atoned.

Here’s my heart Lord,
it now belongs to You
I surrender it in whole
do what You must do.

It once had a mind,
clearly independent
but now it is one
genuinely repentant.

Here is my heart Lord,
I turn it over to You
so it You can restore
heal and renew!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

A new heart
also will I give you,
and a new spirit will
I put within you:
and I will take away
the stony heart out
of your flesh, and I will
give you an heart of flesh

Captive Thoughts ~

Capture my thoughts Lord,
gird me in Thy truth
let me follow Thy Word
as in the days of my youth.

With childlike faith,
take custody of my mind
keep me close to Thee
so Thy ways I can find.

Control and restrain me,
release not me from Thy hold
may my heart for Thee
turn not luke-warm or cold.

Let me not be disillusioned,
by the wisdom of man
seize upon my belief
show me Thy perfect plan.

Capture my thoughts Lord,
in my mind be in  control
I give to Thee my life . . .
let not man conquer my soul!

#throwbackpoem

~ A Thankful, Grateful Heart ~

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is appreciative . . .
one that to all Your blessings
is attuned and sensitive.

Let it be a heart,
that sings its daily praise
let it be my heartfelt gratitude
that to You I earnestly raise.

Let me have a heart,
truly thankful for all things
no matter what in my life
You should choose to bring

Let my heart flow with,
the rivers of Your peace
so my appreciation to You
I may continually release.

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is steadily hopeful
let it be the heart of one . . .
who is to You truly grateful!

God’s Amazing Light ~

Lord, give me a warm heart,
a spirit that is bright . . .
let me see everything
through Your amazing light.

Let me see morning’s dawn,
even when it’s bleak
let me see Your splendor
whenever You I seek.

Let me be grateful,
for each new day given
let me be thankful
even when storm driven.

Let me see the sunshine,
even when there’s rain
let me see the blue skies
even when I am in pain.

Lord, keep my heart warm,
uphold my spirit bright . . .
so when the night turns dark
I’ll see Your amazing light!

Don’t Be Misled ~

Don’t be misled,
don’t be duped . . .
with bad company
don’t be grouped.

For they’ll corrupt,
your biblical thinking
and soon to sin . . .
you too will be winking.

Don’t be tricked,
don’t be fooled
by bad friends
don’t be ruled.

For they’ll pervert,
your Christian mind
and soon you will too
by satan be blind.

Don’t be conned,
don’t be confused . . .
by bad company
don’t be amused!
