God Is Patient And Kind ~

God is patient and kind,
He wants to bless us
with the power we need
for our faith to trust.

So He sends us mercy,
each morning anew
so our hearts and minds
He can daily renew.

God’s love is enduring,
He wants us to know
He is more than willing
His righteous way to show.

So He sends us grace,
sufficient for each day
so on the narrow path
we’ll be able to stay.

God is patient and kind,
His love is unceasing
each day mercy and grace
on us He keeps releasing!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

in time of need.”

may you embrace
His undying grace.

put joy in your heart
may from His ways
you never depart.

My God Promises ~

My God is bigger,
than my fear
for my God promises
to always be near.

My God is greater,
than my dread
for my God promises
me daily bread.

My God is mightier,
than my plight
for my God promises
to lead with His light.

My God is bolder,
than my doubt
for my God promises
I’ll not go without.

My God is stronger,
than my concern
for my God promises
He will return!

Day’s End ~

Heavenly Father,
my day is drawing to an end
and I just want to thank You
for all the blessings You send.

I thank You for Your presence,
whether felt or not
for showing me compassion
when feeling over fraught.

Heavenly Father,
thank You for protecting me
with heaven-sent angels
those that I can and can’t see.

Thank you for Your wisdom,
giving me the heart to hear
but mostly I thank you . . .
for always being ever near.

Heavenly Father,
as tonight I close my eyes
I pray for Your mercy new
tomorrow when I rise!

God’s Daily Benefits ~

Every hour,
of every day
God blesses us
in every way.

He never ceases,
to give us love
nor to send
mercy from above.

Every season,
of every year
God reminds us
He’s ever near.

He never stops,
providing us
with the rewards
of faith and trust.

Every second,
of every minute
from God’s kindness
we daily benefit!

As The New Year Unfolds ~

As the old year departs,
and the new one arrives
let us all show our thanks
to the One who provides.

Let us all worship,
His almighty name
so to His goodness
our lips will proclaim.

As the calendar peals,
one page after another
let us all give praise
to our heavenly Father.

Let us all sing,
over each new season
lest we forget
the blessing of freedom.

As the new year unfolds,
and the old one leaves us . . .
with everything we’ve got
let’s not forget the One we trust!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 103:1-2

“Bless the Lord, O my soul:
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits:

Little Blessings ~

Lord, encourage today,
those who are depressed
let them see just how much
they are truly blessed.

Let them see the little things,
every day that You do
so they may keep their eyes
focused daily in on You.

Lord, encourage today,
those who cannot see
the love and the grace
sent each day from Thee.

Let them see the hope,
in each little blessing
so they may be persuaded
into You to keep pressing.

Lord, encourage today,
those who are downcast
may they keep their minds . . .
and hearts in You steadfast!

Too Numerous To Count ~

When I look at the stars,
as I watch their twinkling
I can see God’s blessings
in them glistening.

I see the star of my faith,
shinning so ever bright
for, God has blessed me
with His saving Light.

I see the star of my trust,
hanging in the sky above
for, God has blessed me
with His mercy and love.

I see the star of my hope,
it’s the brightest one
for, God has blessed me
with the grace of His Son.

When I look at the stars,
as they twinkle all about
I’m reminded God’s blessings
are just too numerous to count!

To Be Happy ~

to-be-happy-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To be happy,
we need to be poor
up in heaven
our treasures we’ll store.

To be happy,
we need to be mournful
over sin
we’ll be remorseful.

To be happy,
we need to be meek
God will be
the first One we seek.

To be happy,
we need to hunger
in God’s Word
we’ll want to linger.

To be happy,
we need to be thirsty
we need to put
Jesus firstly.

To be happy,
we need to be merciful
we’ll need to live
a life purposeful.

To be happy,
we need a pure heart
from God’s ways
we’ll not depart.

To be happy,
we need to be a peacemaker
we’ll need the Holy Spirit
as our icebreaker.

To be blessed,
we need to be these things
than we’ll be happy . . .
no matter what life brings!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:3-12

Blessed are the poor in spirit:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek:
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do
hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful:
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called
the children of God.

Blessed are they which are
persecuted for righteousness’ sake:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye,
when men shall revile you,
and persecute you,
and shall say all manner
of evil against you falsely,
for my sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad:
for great is your reward in heaven:
for so persecuted they the prophets
which were before you.”

From Places Up High ~

Spiritual blessings,
from places up high . . .
are ours to behold
and daily apply.

The blessings of grace,
redemption and forgiveness
the blessing of being filled
with all of God’s richness.

From the Father’s right hand,
passed on to His Son
are all of His blessings
for us to draw upon.

The blessings of joy,
rest and eternal peace
the blessing of faith
with a hope not to cease.

The blessings of power,
strength and victory
the blessing of trust
in all of God’s mystery.

All spiritual blessings,
from places up high . . .
are ours to withdraw
on this we can rely!

Blessings of Assurance ~

Blessings of Assurance ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each day in my Bible,
I am blessed to read
of every assurance
that I will ever need.

I have a warranty,
to God’s mercy and grace
I have evidence
one day I’ll see His face.

I have a verification,
of life eternally
I have the Holy Spirit
dwelling internally.

I have confidence,
God hears all my prayers
I have affirmation
Jesus takes my cares.

I have a guarantee,
temptation I can flee
I have a crown of life
that is awaiting me.

I have a promise,
death I will not fear
I have an insurance
Jesus is always near.

I have a sureness,
I’ll not hunger or thirst
I have the authority
to always seek God first.

I have a confirmation,
I am God’s child
I have a surety
in Jesus I’m reconciled.

Each time I read my Bible,
there are blessings of assurance
to which I’ll hold tight . . .
until Jesus’ reappearance!

~~~~~

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!

“Thou art my portion,

Small Blessings ~

let it rain Daniel R free photo

Small blessings . . .
shower on us everyday
but, often to them
we question or downplay.

At times, we don’t notice,
these tiny drops of grace
they seem so insignificant
for us, to truly embrace.

If we were to slow down,
we couldn’t count them all
for they’re immeasurable
though they seem so small.

When we start to notice,
the drops of His wonder
we will begin to recognize
God’s merciful splendor.

Small blessings . . .
shower on us each day
for, God smiles down on us
as we go about our way!

“God be merciful unto us,

Lord, I Looked for You Today ~

The Lord is Good ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission Doorpost Verses

Lord, I looked for you today
Daughter, I saw you . . .

From the time I woke up
Upon your arising . . .

In the early morning light
I was the sunrise that greeted you . . .

During the afternoon heat
I was the warmth of your day . . .

Through the chill of the night
I cooled down your evening . . .

Till the time I laid down
I was the peace that you felt . . .

But, you were nowhere to be found
But, you were always in My sight . . .

A Pink-Lemonade Sky ~

Birch Bay WA outside my window!

Give me the sun on the horizon,
a pink-lemonade sky above . . .
give me a partly cloudy day
and I’ll tell you why Jesus I love.

Give me the shade of the elm,
the Good Book for me to read
give me something cool to drink
and I’ll have close to all I need.

Give me the creek’s soft humming,
chirps coming from a mother’s nest
give me the green grass to lay in
well ~ you can picture the rest.

Give me a Scripture to mediate on,
a soft breeze blowing across my face
give me a day dwelling upon
God’s amazing, wonderful grace.

Give me the aromas of a barbecue,
my mom’s homemade apple pie
give me laughter around an open fire
the warm sounds of a summer’s sigh.

Give me a day in the radiant Son shine,
so I can reflect on God’s perfect love
give me a day to spend basking . . .
in the goodness that comes from above!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

” Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of
good report; if there be
any virtue, and if there be
any praise, think on these things.”

The Blessings of Spring ~

The Blessings of Spring ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

~ The Blessings of Spring ~

There are many blessings,
that each new Spring brings
you can see it bloom about
and hear the song it sings.

With winters bleakness over,
and brighter days ahead
comes promises of new life
Springtime loves to spread.

As God unfolds the flowers,
and their buds begin to show
He gives to us the assurance
grace in our hearts will grow.

He sends us the robin’s song,
with the promise to provide
a shelter under His mighty wing
where in His love we can abide.

He melts the snowy covers,
and sends the refreshing rain
sprinkling us with His mercies
to heal winter’s ache and pain.

God’s given to all His Son,
to shed upon us a new light
and the real blessing of Spring . . .
is keeping Jesus in our sight!

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

Song of Solomon 2: 11-12
King James Version

“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and
gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the
time of the singing of birds is come, and the
voice of the turtle is heard in our land;”

Trust Fund ~

trustlord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Got me a trust fund,
use it every day
I can always count on it
especially when I pray.

God is the grantor,
His assets are all mine
it’s just like having
an eternal credit line.

I withdraw from it often,
but I never take a loss
for the rates are based on
the finished work of the cross.

Jesus is my inheritance,
I trust Him with all my heart
for I am the beneficiary
of the grace that He imparts.

My trust fund is secure,
the dividends keep growing
I am very confident  . . .
to heaven ~ I’ll be going!

Heavenly Hugs ~

friend CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
So long my friend, I’ll miss you,
more than you will know . . .
I’ll miss the grains of grace
that in your blog, you daily sow.

I will miss your knowledge,
the Bible Studies you share
your reminding me always
in this world to be aware.

I will miss your wisdom,
the insights you’ve brought
I’ve grown in the lessons
you so faithfully taught.

You have been a blessing,
a source of my inspiration
for you’ve showered me
with love and appreciation.

You’ve been my on-line pal,
a buddy like no other . . .
it’s like God sent to me
my own blogging brother.

You will be in my prayers,
in my thoughts daily too
and I’ll ask the Lord
to cheer and comfort you.

This is not really goodbye,
for I know we’ll meet one day
and until we do my friend
I send “heavenly hugs” your way!

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

My dear blogging friend Gregory Lang has posted his last post.
My heart is sadden that He will not longer be able
to share his love for the Lord with us. I have
been so blessed by his ministry and ask you to pray with me
for God’s grace and mercy for Greg and his family.

~ I love you Greg ~

Heaven’s One ~

holyspirit-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A faithful Father, a loyal Son,
a willing Spirit ~ Heavens One.

A universe, a day – a week,
an open door, for those who seek.

A tombstone covers, an open grave,
a promise kept, a world saved.

A young man’s fate, in a lion’s den,
a second coming, we know not when.

A fearful people, pass through the sea,
a cross on Calvary, sets all men free.

A woman forgiven, besides a well,
a world spinning, on the edge of hell.

A Fathers grace sent on a Dove,
a dying Son, whose name is Love ~

~~~~~~~~~~
