The Fear Factor ~

the-fear-factor-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Fear plugs the heart,
stops the flow of peace
it clogs up the calm
only God can release.

Fear hijacks the hope,
we need to be still
it robs the soul
of knowing God’s will.

Fear rips the faith,
right out from under us
it cripples the mind
of its eternal sureness.

Fear disables the joy,
of our salvation
it shuts down the bliss
of our future elation.

Fear stifles the peace,
of a mind that’s sound
it zaps the power
that in God we found!

“I sought the Lord,
and he heard me,

Gripped With Fear ~

gripped-with-fear-chrisian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Gripped with fear,
worry and doubt
can’t shut anxiety
in your mind out?

Then you need God,
to release His power
so your every fear
you can overpower.

Seized by nerves,
enveloped in troubles
clinging to your fears
with white knuckles?

Then you need to let go,
of all of your cares
and give to Jesus
your burdens to bear.

If you want to shake,
fears tightening grip
seek God and from it . . .
you will easily slip!

and he heard me,

from all my fears.”

The Threshold of Fear ~

the-threshold-of-fear-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Today I felt fear,
slither across my threshold
I knew right away
it wanted to take a foothold.

It pounded on my heart,
thumped upon my soul
it clamored for my mind
so it could take control.

I felt its anxiety,
I sensed its panicking
I could clearly hear
its hissing babbling.

So, I took it by the neck,
and gave it a shake
for I knew it was satan
that old, slimy snake.

Today I felt fear,
slither across my threshold
so I met it with God’s power
and from it, got the foothold!

“For God hath not given us
the spirit of fear;

Fear Naught ~

fear-naught-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Throughout the Bible,
we’re told not to fear
nor to be dismayed
for God is always near.

We’re told not to be,
fearful or discouraged
that in the Lord Himself
to always be encouraged.

We’re told not to worry,
God will not fail us
no matter what man does
in Him to always trust.

We’re told not to tremble,
nor to be faint-hearted
we’re told He will finish
whatever He has started

We’re told to our prayers,
God will bend His ear
that we needn’t doubt
our pleas He won’t hear.

We’re told perfect love,
casts out every fear . . .
that God will not forsake
but to Him, keep us near!

~~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 31:6

“Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not, nor be afraid of them:
for the Lord thy God, he it is
that doth go with thee; he will
not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

Tunneling Through ~

Tunneling Through ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When up to your ears,
with problems and fear
before they swallow you up
ask God to draw you near.

Ask Him to give you,
the courage you need
so from fear’s sinkhole
you can be freed.

When life gets too hard,
to make your way though
before you start to panic
ask God what you should do.

He’ll give you the strength,
to burrow your way out
and keep you from getting
buried in fear and doubt.

When worry buries you,
up to your ears . . .
let Jesus help you tunnel
through all your fears!

“So that we may boldly say,
The Lord is my helper,

Are You Drifting ~

Are You Drifting ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Are you drifting,
in a sea of uncertainty
have you given up . . .
on your eternal destiny?

Are you windblown,
shaped by circumstance
drifting in the whirlwind
of luck and happenstance?

Are you drifting,
into a sea of self-destruction
are you being swept away
by sin and corruption?

Are you in a fog,
in the haze of dismay
have you from God . . .
slowly drifted away?

Are you drifting,
in the sea of soulful regret
have you forgotten . . .
Jesus is your safety net?

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 2:1

“Therefore we ought to give
the more earnest heed to the
things which we have heard,
lest at any time we should
let them slip.”

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!

I will trust in thee.”

Make Fear Disappear ~

Make Fear Disappear ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Life is full of apprehension,
worry, dread and fear . . .
and I know of only one way
to make them disappear.

So, whenever I’m fearful,
it’s Jesus I focus on
until my trepidation
is all but spent and gone.

For, He gives me strength,
to overcome my anxiety
whenever I give to Him
in my life first priority.

Whenever nervousness,
takes a grip on me
it’s Jesus  I focus on
until, it’s His light I see.

For, He brings clarity,
in the midst of my doubt
His light floods the dread
from my mind right out.

Life is full of apprehension,
worry, dread and fear
but, focusing in on Jesus
will make them disappear!

Do Not Worry ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Do Not Worry - IBible Verse

Do not worry,
it’s easy for us to say
but for the most part . . .
it’s not the chosen way.

For, we worry over things,
we cannot control
over the ones we can . . .
worry, still takes its toll.

Do not worry,
if we do, we don’t trust
that God is truly able . . .
to take care of us.

For, when we worry,
it only makes us doubt
the things impossible . . .
God can even work out.

Do not worry,
do not be dismayed
give God your weakness . . .
for His strength today!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea,
I will uphold thee with the right hand
of my righteousness.”

Anxiety Free ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deboraann ~ cast-all-your-anxiety IBible Verses

So often, we succumb,
to our dread and fear
forgetting the promise
God is always near.

We often start to think,
God must be mad at us
forgetting the reason
why Jesus, we even trust.

So often we let worry,
take control of our mind
forgetting God’s peace
is ours to seek and find.

We often feel the panic,
before it even sets in
forgetting when we doubt
is just, letting Satan win.

So often, we succumb,
to worry, doubt and fear
but if we remember to pray . . .
our anxiety ~ will disappear!

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

Worries Debut ~

worry-fades-away ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible VErse

When worry makes,
its debut . . .
don’t let fear
take a hold of you.

Thrust it out,
as far as it can go
so in your mind
it won’t start to grow.

Then let God,
take it from there
it’s His worry
now to bear.

He’ll come though,
just as planned
so leave your cares
in His mighty hand.

God doesn’t want,
for you to stew . . .
when worry makes
its debut!

Troubled Waters ~

Cross Pathway by Kevin Carden free photo #19122

I’ve been through troubled waters,
in the turbulence of my mind
I’ve been tossed and shaken
by violent winds of every kind.

I’ve been blown from here to there,
in this whirlwind called life . . .
I’ve been in the many storms
that have only caused me strife.

I’ve been through tumultuous times,
they were long as they were hard
I’ve been through mind twisters
that should have left me scarred.

I’ve been in deep dark waters,
with no sure way to get out
I’ve been in Satan’s cesspool
filled with fear and doubt.

I’ve been through troubled waters,
of every type and every kind . . .
but, Jesus has been the bridge
guarding my heart and mind!

which passeth all understanding,

Worry Free!

worry-does-not-empty-tomorrow CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I want to be all,
God wants me to be
I want to have peace
flowing inside of me.

I want to be humble,
to be rid of pride’s seed
I want God’s grace
to be all that I need.

I want to be trusting,
confident and sure
I want my faith to be
my fears only cure.

I want to be thankful,
in all of these things
I want to be grateful
for what this life brings.

I want to be content,
and have confidence
I want to rejoice
in God’s providence.

I want to be all,
God wants me to be
I want to be anxious
and worry free!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7
King James Version

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Soaking Up His Peace ~

praise-on-green-hills frre photo

Sometimes ~ I just want to stand,
on top the highest hill
raise my hands to the Lord
tell Him how I really feel.

I want to shout out my love,
hear His echo back at me
I want to close my eyes tight
until His face is all I see.

Sometimes ~ I want to be alone,
on the tallest mountain top
sing my praise to the Lord
never wishing for them to stop.

I want to cry out my eyes,
have Him wipe away my tears
I want to give Him any doubt
so He can take away my fears.

Sometimes ~ I just want to stand,
and soak up all His peace . . .
I want to raise my hands upward
until I feel His sweet release!

~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:6-7

“Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,

Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.”

Above the Roar ~

storm-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, help me to walk upon,
the water of this raging sea
help me to hear above the roar
the words ~ You have for me.

Provide for me a safe harbor,
a lifeline ~ I can cling to
till these waves of fear
I’m able to steer through.

Let Your Word be my beacon,
so I may find my way in the dark
help me to see past this storm
let the cross ~ be my landmark.

Though the winds rage all about,
don’t let me be blown away
be the anchor of my soul
till I reach hope’s gateway.

Lord, as the fog surrounds me,
be the horn of my salvation
let Your mercy and grace
help me with the navigation!

Released ~

Casting your Anxiety by Doorpost Verses used with permission

Whenever I’m anxious,
and life has me by the hem
I loosen up and I let go . . .
casting everything onto Him.

I simply sit back,
and let myself unwind
I relax in the knowledge
He’ll give me peace of mind.

Whenever I’m restless,
tense from my concerns
I call upon the Lord
till my stress He overturns.

I take a deep breath in,
then I let it all out
and before you know it
He takes away my doubt.

Whenever I’m troubled,
by my worries and cares
I take them to the Lord
in my thoughts and prayers.

I shut my eyes slowly,
and give to Him my ears
as I listen to His spirit
I’m released from my fears!

Be Still and Know ~

Be Still used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook 2

Stop what you’re doing,
I want you to be awed
be still and know
that I am your God.

Quit trying,
let Me take care of you
quit stumbling
I know just what to do.

Quick fretting,
let Me work this out
quit worrying
give Me all that doubt.

Quit panicking,
I have your front and back
quit struggling
I know what you lack.

Quit fussing,
your future is in My hand
quit complaining
your days I have planned.

Quit resisting,
you can’t do this on your own
quit defying
let My way to you be shown.

Be still . . .
and know that I am God
stop what you’re doing
and in Me ~ you’ll be awed.

Casting Your Cares ~

Cast all your cares upon Jesus,
give to Him all of your fears
let the love of your Savior
dry the river of your tears.

Shed those anxious thoughts,
the fretfulness in your mind
and the serenity of God
you will come to know and find.

Release all of your worries,
every concern trapped inside
give them over to Jesus
and in His peace you’ll abide.

Free yourself from the stress,
do not let fear be your slave
let go and let God comfort you
and from your dread He will save.

Cast all your care upon Jesus
for He cares for you . . .
give Him your heavy burdens
and your every fear too!

The Thunderbolt of Fear ~

The Tunderbolt of Fear ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The thunderbolt of fear,
frightens and horrifies
until panic sets in
and the soul it terrifies.

It moves ever quickly,
through our worried minds
then it settles in
when our weakness it finds.

Fears jolting boom,
is felt deep in the heart
then the resounding dread
in our soul beings to start.

It freezes and it seizes,
our feet to the floor
as soon as we hear
it’s rumbling, cracking roar.

But fear can be conquered,
when at first you hear it’s clap
if you take your worries . . .
and lay them in God’s lap!

I will trust in thee.”

Fear Not ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Fear not My child,
for I am always with you
do not be afraid
for My strength will ensue.

Fear not My child,
for I am your God and Savior
do not be alarmed
for you shall have My favor.

Fear not My child,
for I will not forsake thee
do not be troubled
for I am able to calm the sea

Fear not My child,
for I hold you in My right hand
do not be frightened
for in My grace you will stand.

Fear not My child,
for My goodness never fails
do not be anxious
for My mercy never pales!
