God Doesn’t Sleep ~

God doesn’t sleep,
nor catches forty-winks
His eyes are always open
they never even blink.

He’s constantly aware,
attentive and watchful
His attitude towards us
is so ever thoughtful.

God doesn’t snooze,
nor nap, like a cat
His eyes are upon us
wherever we are at.

His vision never clouds,
He sees things perfectly
He watches over us
with a gaze intensely.

God doesn’t sleep,
slumber He does not
forever He keeps us  . . .
in His every thought!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 15:3

The eyes of the Lord
are in every place,
beholding the evil
and the good.

Psalm 121:3-4

He will not suffer thy foot
to be moved: he that keepeth
thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth
Israel shall neither
slumber nor sleep.

Faithfully God Sends ~

Faithfully God sends,
new mercy each day
lovingly He shines
a light on our way.

Diligently God provides,
for our every need
gently green pastures
He sends us to feed.

Generously God gives,
guidance when asked
openly He bestows
strength for the task.

Dependably God grants,
the power to trust
trustingly He watches
over each of us.

Faithfully God comforts,
with His grace lovingly
kindly He bestows . . .
new mercies tenderly!

~~~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

When God’s Silent ~

Is it God who is silent,
or am I just not hearing . . .
that tiny whispered breath
of the Holy Spirit stirring?

Is it God who is distant,
or am I the one far away . . .
is it why His influence
cannot rest on me today?

Is it God who is quiet,
or am I way too active . . .
to let the Holy Spirit
take my thoughts captive?

Is it God, who is still,
or am I not taking note . . .
is it why His small voice
seems so far and remote?

Is it God who is silent,
or am I just too into me
is that why dear Father . . .
You’re not hearing my plea?

O my God,
I cry in the day time,

God Is Ever Mindful ~

God is ever mindful,
for each one of us He cares
He bows His ears to hear
our petitions and our prayers.

He blesses us with answers,
grants our heart’s desires
showing our delight to Him
He something He admires.

God is ever mindful,
He watches after each of us
He grants to us the faith
to believe in Him and trust.

He gives us the directions,
to live a peaceful life
He uses His own Word
to guide us away from strife.

God is ever mindful,
He blessed us with His Son
to prove His love is . . .
for each and everyone!

~~~~~~~~~~

 Psalm 115:12

The Lord hath been mindful of us:
he will bless us;

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

I’ll Never Forsake You ~

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
for you I will always care
I understand your feelings
how much you have to bear.

I’ll never leave or desert you,
even when you think I’m far away
I know each step you have taken
I have been with you all the way.

I’ll never leave or depart from you,
I am always right here near by
I know what you’ve been through
in my bottle are the tears you cry.

I’ll never leave or quit on you,
even though you feel I’m not there
I’m always watching out for you
you have always been in My care.

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
your every thought I know and see
I’m always here to listen to you . . .
now can you say the same ~ for Me?

The Giver Of All Things Good~

Everyday is a gift from God,
a present for us to unfold
the blessings of His splendor
in the green pastures of His fold.

It is there where we will find,
a Shepherd to lead us
into valleys peaceful
filled with strength, faith and trust.

Everyday is a gift from God,
a treasure for us to explore
the bounty of His goodness
to soak in and to absorb.

It is there where we will find,
all that is good and perfect
coming from the Father of lights
for us daily on which to reflect.

Everyday is a gift to us,
from the Giver of all things
a treasure trove of blessings
that each new morning brings!

James 1.17

perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the

Draw Nigh Lord ~

Draw nigh Lord,
to those who are in need
for You in their lives
to guide and lead.

Come closer Lord,
to those calling out
for Your truth
instead of their doubt.

Move nearer Lord,
into the lives of those
needing their nerves
for You to compose.

Pull in Lord,
those who’ve gone astray
show them again
the Truth, Life and Way.

Drawn nigh Lord,
come close and near
pull those deeper into You
till they no longer fear!

Faithful and True ~

God is faithful,
fiercely loyal and true
and He wants to make
a believer out of you.

He wants to make you,
a branch on His vine
He wants to call you
a dear child of mine.

God is merciful,
tender, loving and kind
He wants your heart
and His to align.

He wants to give you,
peace unimaginable
He wants you to know
hope is obtainable.

God is gracious,
forgiving and yielding
there’s much He can do
with a soul that’s willing!

Every Hair By Number ~

If God calls,
each star by their name
would He not for His children
do the very same?

If God feeds,
the birds on the fly
would He not for His children
their daily needs supply?

If God considers,
all the lilies of the field
would He not for His children
be their protective shield?

If God knows,
when a sparrows about to fall
would He not for His children
hear them when they call?

If God keeps,
each creature in His sight
would He not for His children
lead them with His light?

If God counts,
every hair by number
then we as His children . . .
these question needn’t ponder!

But even the very hairs

You faithfully came rushing.

You assured me,

The Reflections of My Soul ~

The reflections of my soul,
run long and deep . . .
I can see each time into it
God’s mercy began to seep.

I can remember the times,
when lost, was my direction
how God took me back
without any hesitation.

I can recall the episodes,
when my faith was bleak
how God gave me strength
knowing I was weak.

I can recollect the moments,
when I felt so all alone
how God directed me
to keeps my eyes on His throne.

I can call back to my mind,
the bouts of doubt and fear
how God reminded me
He was still close and near.

The reflections of my soul,
run long and deep . . .
as I think of God’s faithfulness
I can’t help but weep!

Oh, what splendor,

seeing the dawning
of morn’s early light.

Taking in the warmth,

bathing in the glory

“Child, I love you.”

A brand new day,
God’s compassion fails not
great is His faithfulness

Forget Not ~

Forget Not ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Forget not the Lord,
nor His many benefits
forget not His ways
nor to them to submit.

Forget not to trust,
Him for all things
forget not to reap
the joy He brings.

Forget not to live,
in His presence
forget not to be
meek and pleasant.

Forget not the hope,
nor His perfect will
forget not to wait
remember to be still.

Forget not the mercy,
in all of its wonder
forget not His love
in all of its splendor.

Forget not the Lord,
His graces obtain
forget not the time
He’ll come again!

Walking In The Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Come with Me,
lets walk in My light

Let Me climb with you,

for I will not forsake
or leave you behind.

Come walk with Me,

who makes you strong.

Come with Me,

for in my light . . .
all things look better!

High Places ~

storm-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

High places,
up over the roar
into God’s arms
so often I soar.

There I am kept,
in perfect peace
as my anxieties
on Him, I release.

To His high tower,
I let my mind fly
where in His love
I can quietly lie.

There I am blessed,
in His faithfulness
it’s where I find . . .
pure peacefulness.

Into God’s arms,
I frequently fly
often my mind soars
to places on high!

God Never Fails ~

God is Faithfull by Nathan Vanhorn CreationSwap

God, You never fail,
but, often I do
especially when . . .

You never give up,

usually because . . .
I can’t be still.

You never falter,
but, often I stumble
typically because . . .
I’m not always humble.

You never waver,
but, often I hesitate
especially when You . . .
I underestimate.

God, You never fail,
You’re constant and true
tis the reason always . . .
I can count on You!

He gives me His ear,

hears the cracking strain.

He understands my needs,

He already has for me . . .
what He knows is best.

His ears are always open,
no matter when I pray
I can call out to Him
every minute of the day.

He lifts my soul up,
when I lift mine in prayer
He takes all my worries
whenever to Him, I share

He gives me His ear,
He hears all of my fears
with His tender mercy
He bottles up, my tears.

When God is Silent ~

Is it God, who is silent,

God Never Changes ~

Through the good times,
and the bad ones too
God never changes . . . .
to us, He remains true.

When we become weary,
under the shadow of doubt
it is only because . . .
we shut His true light out.

Today we may be happy,
tomorrow sad and blue
but, God’s love every day
is the same for me and you.

When we become afraid,
in the darkness of dread
it is only because . . .
we let fear in our head.

Through the good times,
and the bad ones too
God never changes . . .
but, so often we do!

A Time for God ~

A Time for God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A time for patience,
and for some rest
a time to let God . . .
do what is best.

A time for endurance,
to run the good race
a time to stop running
and abound in His grace.

A time for serenity,
in the midst of the buzz
a time to find harmony
as God always does.

A time to listen,
and to be still
a time to wait
for His perfect will.

A time for calmness,
when composure is gone
a time for quietness
and to God, be drawn.

A time to trust,
without any fear
a time for the Lord
to bring us near.

A time for the Spirit,
to lead from above
a time to linger
and abide in His love.

A time for silence,
and an open heart
a time for God only
nothing keeping us apart.

A time to lie down,
in pastures green
a time to be protected
under His wing.

A time to know,
He won’t leave or forsake
a time for God . . .

Nothing Can Shake Me ~

Nothing Can Shake Me ~  CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Nothing can shake me,
no gale will ever blow me away
no storm can overtake me . . .
nor cause my love for Jesus to sway.

No cloud is overly menacing,
no tempest can take me down
no burst of wind will take from me
the faith in Jesus, I have found.

No downpour will blind side me,
no rainstorm is to big of a deluge
no turbulence will carry me off
for, Jesus is my Rock and Refuge.

Nothing can shake me,
no storm, no gale, no wind gust
will take from me the faith I have
for, with my life Jesus I trust!

because he is at my right hand,
I shall not be moved.”

Go To God ~

God is Faithfull  by Nathan Vanhorn CreationSwap

When facing adversity,
when problems are all about
don’t try on your own
to figure them all out.

Don’t worry over them,
or guess at what to do
don’t come up with a scheme
or reason your way through

Instead ~ go to God,
trust Him with your cares
believing He will answer
the desires of your prayers.

Then walk out in faith,
and see where He will lead
sing to Him your praises
till He satisfies your need!

~~~~~~~~~~~


Psalm 9:10
King James Version

“And they that know thy name
will put their trust in thee:
for thou, Lord, hast not
forsaken them that seek thee.”

The Valley Below ~

praise-on-green-hills frre photo

Life has many up hills,
that we all need to climb
some we get over quickly
other’s take a longer time.

Some we scramble over,
other’s we have to scale
some makes us stronger
other’s leave us weak and frail.

Sometimes we suffer pain,
often all we do is cry
at times, we can’t stop asking
“Why, oh God, why?”

But no matter the ascent,
or how high we have to go
God’s promises to help us
reach the valley below!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 28:20

and, lo, I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

My Confidence ~ My Hope

hope-is-in-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My confidence is in the Lord,
for I know He cares for me
I place my hope in Him
not in the things, I can see.

He protects and shelters me,
in His goodness with His grace
with Him any problem
I’m able to confidently face.

I know I can count on Him,
for wisdom and for some rest
for He knows what I need
has for me only the best.

I am so very happy,
for in the Lord I have peace
His compassion never fails me
my hope in Him shall not cease!

King James Version

“Happy is he that hath
the God of Jacob for his help,

whose hope is in the Lord his God:”

Never Forsaken ~

My Sheep used with perrmison Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
even when you think I don’t care
I understand all your feelings
how much you have to bear.

I’ll never leave or desert you,
even when you think I’m far away
I know each step you’ve taken
I have been with you all the way.

I’ll never leave or forget you,
even though you feel I’m not there
I’m always watching out for you
you have always been in My care.

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
your every thought I know and see
I’m always here to listen  to you . . .
can you say the same ~ for Me?

The Road Home ~

Road to By Jared Rarick free photo #6835

When we begin to wander,
go about our own way
the Lord takes notice
knowing we will stray.

As we drift off the path,
of truth and understanding
He knows we’ve departed
from the road everlasting.

He recognizes our error,
He sees that we are inapt
to seek and find for ourselves
the road that’ll take us back.

He won’t leave us for dead,
not one soul, He’d have perish
for every one that He loves
He does forever cherish.

But, He knows we are fragile,
we can’t make it all alone
so, He sends the Holy Spirit
to help and guide us home.

He waits at the door,
to restore the wandering soul
so we can stand before Him
in faith, complete and whole!

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

Proverbs 21:16
King James Version (KJV)

“The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding
shall remain in the congregation of the dead.”

Eternal Plans ~

every-life-matters-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Your very name is written,
on the palms of God’s hands
no one, not even the devil
can pluck you from His plans.

God is emotionally attached,
He is always thinking of you
for you there is not one thing
He is not able or willing to do.

His love for you runs deep,
you are always in His sight
He sees you through the lens
of salvation’s glorious light.

He sees through the walls,
causing your misery and pain
and into your soul and heart
He want’s to rule and reign.

Your very name is written,
etched in the scars on Jesus’ hands
He wants you to see and believe
for you He has eternal plans!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 49:16
King James Version

“Behold, I have graven thee upon
the palms of my hands;
thy walls are continually before me.”


I am But A Sparrow ~

Sparrow Nests

I am but a sparrow,
warm and safe in my nest
my soul is at peace
in my hope, I’m at rest.

I trust in the Lord,
all  my needs He provides
when I leave my roost
He’s the one who guides.

I don’t worry what I’ll eat,
or to the next place I’ll fly
I put all my faith in Him
every day to get me by.

When from my perch,
I begin to fall . . .
He comes to my rescue
when His name I call.

I am but a sparrow,
soon with Him I’ll leave
to this eternal promise
my wings forever cleave!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 12:7
King James Version

“But even the very hairs
of your head are all numbered.

Fear not therefore: ye are of more value
than many sparrows.”

God Knows ~ My Everything

heknows used with permission IBible VErses

God knows ~ my everything,
there’s nothing I can hide
He knows my inner thoughts
He knows all about my pride.

He knows when I will leave,
He knows when I come back
He understands the pitfalls
He knows the faith I lack.

He knows what I think,
He hears everything I say
there isn’t anything hidden
my every word He weighs.

He is everywhere I go,
He is above, He is below
He is the light in my night
He is the morning’s glow.

He is my creator,
every bone He has formed
in my mother’s womb
a miracle He performed.

His mercies are countless,
numerous is His grace
His love too unfathomable
for my mind to embrace.

Oh, God search my heart,
pursue my thoughts too
so I may stand worthy
one day in front of You!

When I Call Out His Name ~

in-peace used with permission I Bible Verses

The Lord hears my cry,
when I call out His name
in the God of my hope
my salvation, I do claim.

He knows my sorrows,
the cause of my pain
He fills me with mercy
in my life, He does reign.

My prayers, He listens to,
He understands my plea
His joy and perfect peace
flow all through me.

I safely rest under,
the shadow of His wing
His goodness protects me
His praises, I do sing!

His Faithful ~

Under His Wings Refuge used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

He lives inside of you,
in that secret place
where His faithful go
to seek His loving face.

He sits upon the throne,
of the faithful at heart
there’s no where they go
where He is not a part.

He dwells in the recesses,
and corners of the mind
where His faithful know
His strength they will find.

He reigns in the souls,
of those who are faithful
He knows that in all things
to Him they are grateful.

He offers a safe haven,
for His faithful to find rest
He knows they need a refuge
a time to feel blessed.

He abides in the secret places,
of the faithful and true
the shadow of the Almighty
is under ~ all that they do!

Psalm 91:1
King James Version

“He who dwells in the secret place of the
Most High Shall abide under the shadow

A Moment to Be Still ~

BE STILL BY BRANDI WOOD FREE PHOTO #18120

Lord, I need a quiet moment,
to be alone with You
a time not interrupted
by the things that I must do.

A time of surrender,
to Your perfect will
a time with You only
a moment to be still.

A time to reflect,
on Your amazing grace
a time to hold You close
a minute to embrace.

A time to recognize,
You are always here
a time to know Your touch
a second to feel You near.

A time to pay attention,
to let Your Spirit lead
a time to feel Your peace
an instant is all I need.

Lord, give me just a second,
maybe even two . . .
I need this very moment
alone with only You!

call ye upon him while he is near:”

In This Changing World ~

In This Changing World ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, in this changing world,
where nothing stays the same
I found You to be faithful
when I call upon Your name.

Every day there’s so much,
that is being compromised
but, Your unfailing love
You have never modified.

No matter where I go,
I find things a bit strange
but, Your steadfast love
never seems to change.

So many people now,
are  making concessions
but, Your trustworthiness
I never have to question.

Lord, in this changing world,
that’s spinning out of control
I find Your faithfulness . . .
to be the anchor for my soul!

Sweet Release ~

His Compassions used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Lord, tonight I am tired,
weary and sleepy too
but, I know in the morning
I will start afresh in You.

But, for now I need rest,
on Your mercy I’ll lay my head
as I turn down the blankets
Your grace will cover my bed.

I’ll think of Your goodness,
Your compassion and Your love
visions of eternal life with You
will be all I’ll be dreaming of.

Sweet release will be mine,
from the hardships of the day
for I trust Your faithfulness
tomorrow will not go away!

God Knows You ~

Sparrow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God knows you,
each and every hair
and all your burdens
He wants to bear.

God sees you,
seeks your heart out
He promises to always
take away your doubt.

God hears you,
waits for you each day
to fill you with His joy
when you trust and pray.

God loves you,
you are never alone
He’ll give you strength
to fly on your own.

God knows you,
calls you by name
He wants your fears
so His peace you’ll claim!

May I Not Forget ~

Lord, may I not forget . . .
the favors You have granted me
or how You made a path
across my very own Red Sea.

May my praises for You,
keep me humble all my days
may I remember to follow
and to walk in all Your ways.

Lord, may I not complain,
nor forget Your mighty deeds
may I always remember
it’s You who supplies my needs.

May my heart stay pure,
so that my soul You will win
may it hold not one single idol
nor have an appetite for sin.

May my praise rise each day,
and lay upon my lips at night
may I not forget Your counsel
nor the pillars of Your saving light.

Lord, may I not forget . . .
the wondrous works of Your hand
nor how You made for me a path
that leads to Your promised land!
