God Has A Purpose ~

God has a purpose,
He had a plan
before our lives
even began.

He knows all things,
for our own good
will work out
as He said they would.

But, we must love,
God and His ways
we must have a heart
that yields and obeys.

We need to know,
what is God’s will
we need to wait
and to be still.

God has a purpose,
but, it’s up to us
to heed the calling
of faith and trust!

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord,
thoughts of peace,
and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

It’s Not About the Storms ~

It’s not about the storms,
we find ourselves in
it’s about if they help us
to avoid every kind of sin.

It’s not about the winds,
that blow us around
it’s about if they help us
to keep our minds sound.

It’s not about the rains,
flooding through our life
it’s about if they help us
to give God our daily strife.

It’s not about the tempests,
on us being thrust
it’s about if they help us
in God to rely and trust.

It’s not about the weather,
the wind, rain or tempest
it’s about if they help us
to find God’s peace and rest.

It’s not about the storms,
nor how wind-whipped our boat
it’s about whether we used . . .
our Bible, to help keep us afloat!

God To The Rescue ~

god-to-the-rescue-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Desperate times,
takes trust courageous
they take knowing
God will deliver us.

Hopeless situations,
takes prayers plentiful
they take believing
God’s arm is stretchable.

Dire circumstances,
takes faith fearless
they take convincing
God knows His business.

Dreadful conditions,
takes belief unbelievable
they take awareness
with God all is achievable.

Desperate times,
takes prayer, faith and trust
they take confidence
God will come rescue us!

A Shelter In The Storm ~

a-shelter-in-the-storm-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann
In life there are storms,
we all have to go through
finding a refuge from them
is the first thing we must do.

We need to trust God,
until the storm passes on
for He will keep us safe
till each drop of rain is gone.

In life there are storms,
we know they’ll be coming
we just don’t know the ones
that’ll bring heavy flooding.

We don’t know how long,
each storm will be or last
but, we can count on God
for His promises of the past.

In the storms of life,
as the winds blow . . .
God has for us a shelter
under His wing’s shadow!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 57:1

“Be merciful unto me, O God,
be merciful unto me:
for my soul trusteth in thee:
yea, in the shadow of thy wings
will I make my refuge,
until these calamities be overpast.”

He sent you the sun,
shining from above
to remind you of
the warmth of His love.

Each morning He brings,
to you mercies anew

The Valley of Hope ~

in-the-valley-of-hope-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is a valley,
I call hope . .
it’s where I gather
strength to cope.

I take my time,
as through it I go
praying all the way
God’s plans I’ll know.

I often rest,
along side a hill
it’s where I learn
how to be still.

I amble slowly,
around each bend
asking God all along
more faith He’ll send.

There is a valley,
hope is its name
where springs of trust
in God’s peace I claim!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 104:10

“He sendeth the springs
into the valleys, which
run among the hills.”

Along My Journey ~

along-my-journey-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, along my journey,
to get closer to You
there were lots of obstacles
I had to maneuver through.

You took me down the road,
of sorrow and grief
so I would learn to turn
to You for peace and relief.

You put me on the path,
of heartache and loss
so I would know the pain
of carrying my own cross.

You brought me to places,
I did not want to go
so that Your mercy
I’d truly come to know.

Lord, along my journey,
of hope and salvation
You always had for me
heaven as my destination!

that I think toward you,

Lift Me Up Lord ~

lift-me-up-lord-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling down
I need You to turn
my spirits around.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling blue
I need a pick me up
like only You can do.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling low
I need You to bring
back salvation’s glow.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling bleak
I need Your strength
for I am just too weak.

Lift me up Lord,
I humbly ask . . .
for without Your power
I’m not up to the task!

~~~~~~

James 4:10

” Humble yourselves
in the sight of the Lord,
and he shall lift you up.”

Cry’s From The Heart ~

cries-from-the-heart-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The cry’s of the heart,
don’t fall on deaf ears
for each one of them
God promises to hear.

The cry for a heart,
after His own
tells Him you long
to make it His home.

The cry for a heart,
He can transform
tells Him you want
it to be His platform.

The cry for a heart,
open and teachable
tells Him its ready
to be searchable.

The cry for a heart,
to know His ways
tells Him you want
to be lead each day.

The cry for a heart,
that God can touch
says to Him . . .
I love You so much!

~~~~~

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.”

Faith Fortified ~

faith-fortified-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, let me obtain,
faith that is greater
give to me the kind
not able to waiver.

Let it be strong,
mighty and firm
so when it’s tested
I will not squirm.

Lord, let me acquire,
faith, mountain moving
take this mustard seed
and keep it growing.

Let it take root,
deep in my soul
so when it’s tried
I will not fold.

Lord, may my faith,
be in You fortified
so when tested or tried
I’ll not be horrified!

Increase our faith.”

There’s Nothing God Can’t Do ~

therss-nothing-too-hard-for-god-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is nothing too hard,
for God to do . . .
there isn’t anything
He can’t perform  for you.

There isn’t a place too tight,
God can’t get you out of
there isn’t a problem so deep
He can’t help you rise above.

There isn’t a relationship,
God can’t save and heal
there isn’t a broken heart
He can’t make again to feel.

There isn’t a single fear,
God can’t make go away
there isn’t one little doubt
He can’t begin to sway.

There isn’t a spiritual crisis,
God can’t alleviate
there isn’t a physical issue
He can’t regenerate.

Nothing is too hard for God,
there’s not anything He can’t do
all He needs to have . . .
is faith and trust from you!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 18:14

“Is any thing too hard for the Lord?
At the time appointed I will return

Hope is eternal,
it is everlasting
hope is the confidence
keeping us believing.

Hope is joyous,
it is happiness
hope fills our hearts
with infinite gladness.

Hope is peaceful,
calming and tranquil
hope is having faith
to trust and be still.

Hope is for today,
it is our future . . .
hope is something
to always nurture!

The Best Year Yet ~

the-best-year-yet-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

This year is going to be,
the best one yet . . .
for daily with God
through it, I will get.

Each morning I’ll have,
with Him a heart-to-heart
asking for His help
before my day I start.

On Him I will draw,
my strength each hour
so He can fill me with
the Holy Spirit’s power.

Whether I am awake,
or if I am fast asleep
I’ll find rest in knowing
my times are His to keep.

This is going to be,
the best year ever . . .
for, I’ll be trusting God
in all we endeavor!

Another Year is Here ~

another-year-is-here-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Another year is here,
I’m leaving the last behind
to remembering the bad
I am going to decline.

Instead I’ll focus on,
all the many blessings
God sent my way
to keep me from stressing.

I’ll take them with me,
into the New Year
and when I get depressed
they’ll bring my heart cheer.

I’ll keep my eyes on,
any new ones that He sends
and count each blessed one
right till the New Year ends

Another year is here,
the past one I am leaving
I’m starting this one out . . .
God trusting and believing!

nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us
from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Fears Erased ~

fears-erased-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When God takes me,
into His warm embrace
I feel overwhelmed
by His love and grace.

For, they soothe my soul,
just like a healing balm
brings to my mind peace
makes my heartbeat calm.

When God takes me,
under His mighty wings
I know I can accept
whatever life brings.

For when I’m protected,
by God’s powerful hand
I know the storms I face
I’ll be able to withstand.

When God takes me,
into His warm embrace
it’s so all my fears . . .
His love can erase!

God Has A Hold of Me ~

god-has-a-hold-on-me-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God has a hold of me,
He has me in His hand
if someone trips me up
He’ll help me again to stand.

God has His eyes on me,
He knows wherever I go
if any one misleads me
the way back He will show.

God has His ears on me,
He hears my every cry
if I fall for satan’s tricks
my regrets He’ll not deny.

God has a heart for me,
He loves me for who I am
if anybody steers me wrong
He’ll get me out of the jam.

God has a hold of me,
from His hand I can not slip
there’s not one person who  . . .
can snatch me from His grip!

My Daily Nourishment ~

my-daily-nourishment-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, give unto me,
my daily bread
satisfy my hunger
let me be Spirit lead.

Renew my mind,
keep worry at bay
transform my heart
upon each new day.

Give unto me,
all the faith I need
quench my thirst
as Your Word I read.

Provide me shelter,
a place to find rest
let not this sparrow
fall from Your nest.

Lord, nourish my soul,
clothe me in righteousness
cover me daily
with Your graciousness!

and the body than raiment?

Tumbleweed Faith ~

tumbleweed-faith-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Tumbleweed faith . . .
gets blown all around
one day it’s lifted up
the next upside down.

It’s root is shallow,
it’s weak and unstable
faith like a tumbleweed
spins like a turntable.

Tumbleweed faith . . .
flips with the wind
under false doctrine
it becomes pinned.

Storms of adversity,
are too much for it
faith like a tumbleweed
to deceit won’t admit.

Tumbleweed faith . . .
gets blown all around
for in the true Gospel
it is not firmly ground!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:14

That we henceforth
be no more children,
tossed to and fro,
and carried about
with every wind of doctrine,
by the sleight of men,
and cunning craftiness, whereby
they lie in wait to deceive;”

Give Up, Never ~

give-up-never-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Don’t you quit,
give up, never
from God’s ways
do not sever.

Do not give in,
don’t succumb
a part of this world
do not become.

Don’t you depart,
get not blown away
be not that sheep
that’s gone astray.

Do not be adapted,
be not conformed
instead in Jesus
be transformed.

Don’t you quit,
but be renewed
lest you’ll have
a worldly attitude!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed
by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is
that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

I Trust Thee Lord ~

i-will-trust-thee-christitan-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Forever Lord,
I will trust Thee
no matter what
happens to me.

I will trust Thee,
when its stormy
I will trust Thee
when its balmy.

I will trust Thee,
when its serene
I will trust Thee
for the unseen.

I will trust Thee,
when its peaceful
I will trust Thee
when facing evil.

I will trust Thee,
when I’m weak
I will trust Thee
when all is bleak.

I will trust Thee,
with my life
I will trust Thee
through the strife

I will trust Thee,
like no other
I will trust Thee
more than my brother.

I will trust Thee,
when under attack
I will trust Thee
for all I lack.

I will Trust Thee,
when I’m ill
I will trust Thee
to be still.

Forever Lord,
I will trust Thee
for Your strength
lives in me!

Turning Fear into Faith ~

turning-fear-into-faith-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, turning fear into faith,
is possible to do . . .
if only we would leave
our troubles with You.

Then we will not be,
anxious or dismayed
we will have no reason
to ever be afraid.

We need to learn,
in You we can trust
that all of our concerns
You will take from us.

Then we will not worry,
or be full of trepidation
nor will our hearts feel
a hopeless desperation.

Lord, turning fear into faith,
we can all do . . .
but first we must take
our every care to You!
