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!

James 4:8

and he will draw nigh to you.”

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!

Hopefully, Joyful ~

Lord, once again
You proved to be faithful
and once again to You
I am truly grateful.

For, You have taught me,
how to cast my cares
onto You with my pleas
and my thankful prayers.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be trusting
and to my aide today
You faithfully came rushing.

You assured me,
for me You’d be here
to ease all my anxiety
and alleviate my fear.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be loyal
tis why today . . .
I’m hopefully, joyful!

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!

My Cup Is Never Empty ~


My cup is never empty,
is it full to the brim
with wonderful thoughts
of starting today with Him.

For I am filled,
with all of God’s goodness
as I have found my true rest
in His mercy and forgiveness.

My cup is running over,
it’s never half gone
for I fill it each day
with the Light of the Son.

If I were to need a refill,
of God’s grace and love
all I ever have to do . . .
is look to the heaven above.

Is your cup ready,
to be filled with peace
then today make sure . . .
for your Bible you reach!

The Promise Keeper ~

our-promise-keeper-christian-poetryby-deborah-ann

Promise Keeper,
that is what God is
for He always does
just what He says.

Faithful and True,
to His Word He sticks
He doesn’t waiver
stays with the script.

Trustworthy and Solvent,
He’ll end what He began
all will become new
upon His command.

Sovereign and Free,
to do as He must
He’ll be the Judge
for everything unjust.

Promise Keeper,
that is who God is . . .
tis why it’s so important
to do as He says!

A Brand New Day ~

brand-new-day-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A brand new day,
is on the rise . . .
God’s beauty unfolding
right before my eyes.

Oh, what splendor,
oh, such a delight
seeing the dawning
of morn’s early light.

Taking in the warmth,
soaking up each ray
bathing in the glory
God has for me today.

Sunshiny sparkles,
illuminating the dew
drops of God’s mercy shimmer
“Child, I love you.”

A brand new day,
God’s compassion fails not
great is His faithfulness
glitters my morning thought!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

“It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,

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!

Come Walk With Me ~

Walking In The Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Come with Me,
lets walk in My light
for in Me . . .
all things are bright.

Let Me lead you,
down the grinding road
come along with Me
I’ll carry your load.

Come walk with Me,
through the dark valley
if you grow weary
I’ll help you to rally.

Let Me guide you,
to fields of green
if you should tire
on Me you can lean.

Come walk with Me,
let Me direct you
up over that mountain
for a brighter view.

Let Me climb with you,
up that steep incline
for I will not forsake
or leave you behind.

Come walk with Me,
I want you along
for it is only I . . .
who makes you strong.

Come with Me,
let’s take this together
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!

“Because he hath set his love upon me,
therefore will I deliver him:
I will set him on high, because he

God Never Fails ~

God is Faithfull by Nathan Vanhorn CreationSwap

God, You never fail,
but, often I do
especially when . . .
I don’t come to You.

You never give up,
but, often I will
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!

God’s Up To The Task ~

God's Up To The Task ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~God Will Do IT- IBible Verse

God knows my needs
before I even ask . . .
I know He is able
to perform any task.

I just need to believe,
get rid of my doubt
rely on my Father
to work everything out.

I need to ditch my fears,
any of my reservations
I need to count on God
without any trepidation.

With childlike faith,
I will trust and depend
to all of my requirements
my Father will attend.

God knows my needs,
He is always up to the task
I know He is able to do . . .
whatever it is, I ask!

Be Not Afraid ~

Wilderness by Steve Kirkeby free photo

When in the wilderness,
be brave and be daring
no matter the burden
or load you’re carrying.

For, God is with you,
wherever you go
He promises always
the right way to show.

He will be the cloud,
to follow in the day
His very presence
will lead you the way.

He will be your pillar,
in the dead of night
He will shine on you
His true guiding light.

When in the wilderness,
don’t you be dismayed . . .
God is always with you
so be not, ever afraid!

~~~~~~~~~

Joshua 1:9

“Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:
for the Lord thy God is with thee
whithersoever thou goest.”

Lord, I lift up my heart,
pour Yours into mine
give me perfect peace
joy real and divine.

Fill me with love,
the hope that You bring
let Your grace permeate
like the aroma of Spring

Send me Your light,
complete in me Your will
guide and lead me along
streams calm and still.

Take from me my grief,
the throb in my pain
wash away my sorrow
like an early, Spring rain.

Cover me with mercy,
tender and sweet
until the day . . .
when we finally meet.

Lord I lift up my heart,
pour Yours into mine
let us intertwine . . .
like a  Springtime vine!

He Gives Me His Ear ~

Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

He gives me His ear,
when I cry out in pain
He listens to my voice
hears the cracking strain.

He understands my needs,
before I make my request
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.

~~~~~

“In my distress I called upon the Lord,
and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out

Deepening Faith ~

God is Faithfull  by Nathan Vanhorn CreationSwap

Thank You God for this time,
of sorrow, pain and grief
I know You sent it to me
to test my true belief.

Though, I don’t understand,
exactly Your reasoning
I can feel my faith . . .
in You deepening.

As I continue on the path,
I know You will heal . . .
the ache and the sadness
that today, I still feel.

I know You have a plan,
for every one of us . . .
and I know of no one else
in whom I can truly trust.

And so I’ll wait for You,
to bring me out my despair
and until such time . . .
Your faithfulness, I’ll declare!

myrefuge ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

My God He is in the midst,
I shall not be moved . . .
He is always at my side

For, He is my sure refuge,
He has kept me safe

every ounce, of my faith.

My God, is in the midst,

above their anxious roar.

For, He is my helper,

When God is Silent ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Listening by Julio Pirieda free photo #5712

Is it God, who is silent,
or am I,  just not hearing . . .
the 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, just too active . . .
to let the Holy Spirit
take every thought 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,
 but thou hearest not; and in the night season,
and am not silent.”

God Never Changes ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ God Will Enlighten IBible Verses

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!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:17

“Every good gift
and every perfect gift
is from above,

and cometh down
from the Father of lights,

with whom is no
variableness,
neither shadow of turning.”

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 . . .
we all need to make!

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!
