In A Jam ~

In a tight jam,
with no way out
once full of faith
now full of doubt?

Well, don’t you lose hope,
God’s the master of jams
for, He’s gotten out before
many of His trapped lambs.

Up against a wall,
don’t have a clear view
getting to the other side
looks impossible to do?

Well don’t you give up,
up and over you will go
for God will make a way
and a path He will show.

In a tight jam,
a wall up against . . .
well don’t you forget God
will come to your defense!

which maketh a way in the sea,
and a path in the mighty waters;”

Thankful In Any Circumstance ~

Whatever comes my way,
I take this stance . . .
to be thankful
in every circumstance.

Whenever I am happy,
my praise to God I sing
and I thank Him for . . .
the joy that He brings.

Whenever I have troubles,
I seek Him and I pray
and I thank Him for . . .
the peace on my way.

Whenever I’m hurting,
I trust my pain He’ll relieve
and I thank Him for . . .
the strength to believe.

Whenever I’m doubtful,
I give to Him my fear
and I thank Him for . . .
being close and near.

Regardless of how I feel,
I praise Him in advance
and I thank the Lord . . .
no matter my circumstance!

“In everything give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Scripture Mutations ~

Scripture Mutaltion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I hear about God’s love,
and tolerance
I hear about wealth
and being prosperous.

But, what I don’t hear,
theses days any more . . .
is the repentance of sin
lest it cause an uproar.

I hear about God’s love,
and stewardship
I hear about the greed
among the leadership.

But what I don’t hear,
is about sin’s liberation
for the Scriptures now have
too many mutations.

I hear about God’s love,
but not of His wrath
for no one these days . . .
wants to go down this path!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 15:9

“But in vain they do worship me,
teaching for doctrines
the commandments of men.”

Worth My Pursuing ~

Worth Pursuing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes I don’t get,
what God is doing
but, I know His reasons
are worth my pursuing.

Sometimes I’m not sure,
what God wants of me
but, I know His plans
are there for me to see.

Sometimes I don’t discern,
what God is asking
but, I know His desires
are worth the unmasking.

Sometimes I can’t imagine,
what God has in store
but, I know His answers
He wants me to explore.

Sometimes I don’t get,
what God wants me to do
but,  I know His will  . . .
is up to me to pursue!

I’m Waiting For You Lord ~

Waiting For You Lord ~ ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I am waiting for You Lord,
because You told me to
and I am anticipating
what it is that You will  do.

I am being strong Lord,
for I have put my trust
in You because I know
You’re always fair and just.

I am waiting for You Lord,
just like You said I should
and I know I can expect
from You something good.

I’m remaining calm Lord,
see I’m not trembling
for I have put my faith in
whatever You’re assembling.

I am waiting for You Lord,
again I say I’m waiting . . .
for I know that with You
there can be no debating!

The Saving Light ~

Saving Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I pray those in the dark,
may see Your saving Light
I pray they will come to know
it’s with Satan that they fight.

I pray they will find the Truth,
so they can seek the Way
I pray Your mercy and favor
will cause their hearts to sway.

I pray their eyes be opened,
to the darkness of their deeds
I pray they will come to know
it is the devil who misleads.

I pray their ears will hear,
the Good News that You sent
I pray to Your love and grace
they will give their consent.

Lord, I pray for those under,
Satan’s bondage and control
I pray they will come to know
only You can save their soul!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 26:18

“To open their eyes, and to turn them
from darkness to light, and from the
power of Satan unto God, that they
may receive forgiveness of sins,
and inheritance among them which
are sanctified by faith that is in me.”

His Perfect Peace ~

 ~ His Perfect Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I struggle
with crippling doubt
it’s when I don’t . . .
first seek God out.

When I think,
I am not really free
it’s when the devil
is messing with me.

When I battle,
with high anxiety
it’s when I don’t . . .
trust God’s authority.

When I feel,
I am all alone
it’s when my eyes
are off His throne.

When my fears,
to God, I release
it’s when I have . . .
His perfect peace!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 26:3

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

God Knows ~

Plans to Give You Hope ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Used with permission IBible Verses

God knows,
He’s got it figured out
and it’s up to me
not to have any doubt.

God gets it,
He’s got a perfect plan
and it’s up to me
to leave all in His hand.

God has this one,
He’s got it preformed
and it’s up to me
to be transformed.

God got this,
He’s know my future
and it’s up to me
not to take a detour.

God knows,
my times are in His hands
and it’s up to me . . .
to do what He commands!

The Assurances of Salvation ~

Man of Our Sorrow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Salvation Belongs IBible Verses

The assurances of salvation,
are something to behold
for all through the Bible
before our eyes they unfold.

We have the declaration,
of God’s unfailing love
we have confirmed access to
His merciful throne above.

We have the eternal pledge,
of adoption and acceptance
we’re given the guarantee
we will see His holy presence.

We have the security,
of forgiveness and election
though Jesus we’re promised
justification and redemption.

We have the certainty,
soon Jesus will return
when Satan and all evilness
in hell, will forever burn.

We have the assurance,
of an everlasting inheritance
of a future hope and glory
in a joyful, peaceful residence!

The Potter Stands Ready ~

The Potter Stands Ready ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Potter stands ready,
to patch and to restore
the broken heart of those
who can’t take anymore.

He sees the shattered soul,
all of the devastation
He knows it needs to find
in His hands, liberation.

He takes the ruined pieces,
places them upon His wheel
spins them with His mercy
so they may begin to heal.

He mends the brokenness,
with His  love and grace
then with hope and peace
He fills in the empty space.

The Potter stands ready,
to mend, heal and to restore
every single broken heart
who knocks on the Potter’s door!

“And the vessel that he made of clay
was marred in the hand of the potter:

He is my Friend

Because of Jesus,
I have no fear
because I know
He is always near.

He is my Way,

all things good
all things true.

Because He loved,
me at the first . . .
tis why my soul
with joy now bursts!

Pour Out Your Heart ~

 Here is My Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Pour out your heart to Jesus,
tell Him what’s bothering you
let Him know you need Him
to show you what to do.

Don’t hold anything back,
give Him all you’ve got
let Him have each worrisome
every troublesome thought.

Let it all flow out,
let Him know you are weak
He is always there for those
who are willing to find and seek.

Dispense onto Jesus,
your every fear and doubt
explain to Him your anxiety
what your nervousness is about.

Pour your heart out to Jesus,
He will hear your every prayer
for He came into this world . . .
so your burdens, He could bear!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“Trust in him at all times;
ye people, pour out your heart
before him: God is a refuge for us.”

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ My Prayer for You ~ photo creation swap

I pray the Lord will be with you,
while this, you are going through
I pray you will not leave His side

Some Days ~

Steps of Faith by Daniel R free ohoto #14252

Lord, some days I just don’t know,
what I am gonna do . . .
sometimes I haven’t the strength
to follow in Your shoes.

Some days are just impossible,
to pick up my cross
sometimes I can’t bear
yet another loss.

Some days are just harder,
to go to You in prayer
sometimes it’s so easy
to fall into Satin’s snare.

Some days I feel so lost,
so alone and miserable
sometimes I feel like my sins
to You ~ aren’t forgivable.

Some days are too difficult,
from the moment they arrive
sometimes the night ahead
seems impossible to survive.

Lord, some days I just don’t know,
what I am gonna do . . .
that is why today I’m starting it ~
by trusting in only You!

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

Matthew 9:22

be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.
And the woman was made whole from that hour.”

Bible Prophecy, Christian News. Salvation is not in our hands. Only Jesus Christ can save. John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
