God’s Promises ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann~ Praying with Bible used with permission Creation Swap

All of God’s promises,
are for you to receive
all you have to do . . .
is to trust and believe.

All of His blessings
He wants to bestow
all of His goodness
He wants you to know.

You can find them,
in the Good Book
all you have to do . . .
is take, a good look.

They flow all about,
woven all through
the promises of God
are waiting for you.

They hold your future,
they’ll guide your way
comfort and give you
strength for the day.

All of God’s promises,
are yours to believe
but, you must open up . . .
your Bible, to receive!

2 Corinthians 1:20

“For all the promises of God in him are yea,
and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”

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

even into his ears.”

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!

God Is In The Midst ~

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
this He has always proved.

For, He is my sure refuge,
He has kept me safe
in Him, I have placed
every ounce, of my faith.

My God, is in the midst,
though, my troubles soar
in Him I shall rise . . .
above their anxious roar.

For, He is my helper,
ever-present, ever-near
I call upon His name . . .
to calm my every fear.

My God, He is in the midst,
continually He has proved
nothing that life brings me
shall cause me to be moved!

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!

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!

~~~~~~~~~~~

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

but, I know in the morning
I will start afresh in You.

But, for now I need rest,

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!

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!
