Through It All ~

Through the mountain,
God led me . . .
through the hardships
He supplied me.

Through the darkness,
God directed me . . .
through the uncertainties
He never left me.

Though the high waters,
God brought me . . .
through the sorrow
He comforted me.

Through the storms,
God protected me . . .
through the heartache
He cared for me.

Through the desert,
God guided me . . .
through the loneliness
He loved me.

Through the valley,
God carried me . . .
through the grief
He shouldered me.

Through the wilderness,
God was with me . . .
through all of my doubts
He waited for me!

~~~~~~

Psalm 136:16

“To him which led his people
through the wilderness:
for his mercy endureth for ever.”

Talk to Me Lord, Talk To Me ~

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
for my world’s shaking apart
and the winds of adversity
are blowing thru my heart.

Talk to me Lord and tell me,
the way You’d have me to go
speak to me thru Your Spirit
so Your path I may know.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
make with me a connection
for I am counting on You
to give me Your direction.

Talk to me Lord and lead me,
as I go about my way
tell me to go right or left
I need Your guidance today.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
let not pride keep us apart
be that still small voice . . .
speaking to my shaken heart!

Wisely Walking ~

Father I thank You,
today for Your grace
and the wisdom I need
to wisely run the race.

For, I know of the evil,
I will witness today
and to walk cautiously
must be my mainstay.

Father I thank you,
today for Your direction
for the wisdom to have
in the world no connection.

For, though times are dark,
You make it clear to me
how living like a fool
I do not want to be.

Father I thank you,
for helping me to walk wise
so that I can be mindful
of satan’s traps and lies!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-17

“See then that ye walk circumspectly,
not as fools, but as wise,

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what
the will of the Lord is.”

Direction’s Needed ~

When you’re not sure,
of the way to go . . .
when you need someone
the correct way to show.

Open up your ears,
to God’s divine direction
and He will lead you
to the path of perfection.

When you’re not convinced,
which way you should turn . . .
when you need to have
the wisdom to discern.

Open up your Bible,
learn to walk in it ways
and God will lead you
for the rest of your days.

When you need directions,
so you can be Spirit led . . .
open up your ears . . .
to that voice in your head!

Sometimes God Tells Me ~

Sometimes God makes me wait,
though I would rather just up and go
sometimes He tells me . . .
My child you need to take it slow.

Sometimes He says to get up,
when I would rather stay down
sometimes He tells me . . .
My child you need to turn around.

Sometimes God makes me sit still,
when I would rather proceed
sometimes He tells me . . .
My child your will to Me concede.

Sometimes He says to walk,
when I would rather off and run
sometimes He tells me . . .
My child put your trust in My Son.

Sometimes God makes me wait,
sometimes He tells me to go . . .
but, most of the time He tells me
My child be still till you know!

The Lord Leads Me ~

The Lord leads me,
through the valleys and dells
He takes me to places
where righteousness dwells.

It is there where I find,
His guiding hand
showing me just where
my steps should land.

The Lord takes me,

He takes me to places
for me to discover His will.

It’s there where I observe,

Show Me Your Ways Lord~

Lord, show me Your ways,
reveal them to me
lead and guide my steps
to where they should be.

Grant me Your mercy,
always be by my side
for the road is too rough
and the path is so wide.

Instruct and teach me Lord,
in the way I should go
for the hills are too lofty
and the valleys so low.

Encourage me daily,
to hold on to Your hand
for the canyons are too steep
and the mountains so grand.

Lord, show me Your path,
teach me in Your ways
let Your light lead me . . .
for the rest of my days!

God’s Wise Ways ~

God’s ways are wise,
they’re full of wisdom
for they go against
the world’s system.

They lead and guide,
to the righteous way
not the one followed
so widely today.

God’s ways are holy,
they are profound
nothing about them
are found unsound.

For they are rich,
thoughtful and deep
bringing mercy and hope
when His truths we keep.

God’s ways are wise,
for He has a plan
redemptive and perfect
for all of man!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:8

For my thoughts are
not your thoughts,
neither are your ways
my ways, saith the Lord.

Romans 11:33

and his ways past finding out!

This Is The Way ~

Sometimes God whispers,
this is the way to us . . .
to see if His prompting
we are willing to trust.

He opens up doors,
to see if we’ll go through
then watches with them
what we’re willing to do.

Sometimes God whispers,
this is the way to go . . .
to see if we will follow
or be a no-show.

He makes clear a path,
for us to begin our walk
then observes if our faith
matches our believer’s talk.

Sometimes God whispers,
this is the way right here . . .
to see if His voice
we’re even willing to hear!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 30:21

And thine ears shall hear

This is the way, walk ye in it,

If The Lord’s Our Shepherd ~

If the Lord is our Shepherd,
why then do we still want?
If He supplies all our needs,
why do our lacks still taunt?

If besides still waters He leads,
why then do we still fear?
If He fills us with quietness,
why don’t we hold Him near?

If green pastures bring peace,
why then are we still stressed?
If He leaves us not lacking,
why don’t we feel blessed?

If He restores our souls,
why then do we still doubt?
If He satisfies our deep thirst,
why is their still a drought?

If in righteousness He guides,
why then do we still wander?
If the Lord is truly our Shepherd,
we needn’t these things ponder!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down
in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside
the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Ditching Your Own Plans ~

As you get to know,
who God really is . . .
you’ll ditch your plans
and go after His.

For He has a purpose,
for you and your life
one filled with peace
not of earthly strife.

The more you understand,
just what is God’s will
the more of it to you
He will daily reveal.

For His plans will unfold,
the more of Him you seek
and you’ll see His purpose
the more you are meek.

God has a plan for you,
this you must not doubt
for in you He is working . . .
all good things out!

For I know the thoughts

Navigating Through Another Year~

Navigating Through Another Year ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann free to use

Lord, as I navigate,
through yet another year
I’m going to need You . . .
to stay close and near.

If I am to chart out,
a new course for each day
I’m going to need You . . .
to shed light on my way.

As I try to plow through,
the obstacles I’m able
I’m going to need You . . .
to keep my trust stable.

If I’m going to weather,
each storms out at sea
I’m going to need You . . .
to keep Your eyes on me.

Lord, as I navigate,
through yet another year
I’m counting on You . . .
to give me faith over fear!

how never to stray.

putting the last behind . . .
for, God has a purpose
in this one for me to find.

as His word I read.

Not sure what to expect,
don’t yet know the direction
but, God will steer me
if I give Him my attention.

I don’t know what I will do,
so, I’m praying as I go . . .
for, I know God has a plan
and the way He will show.

whatever may be in store!

Heavenly Mandates ~

Heavenly mandates,
we all surely need . . .
tis why God gave to us
His Word to daily read.

For He knew we needed,
His divine instructions
on how to get over
temporal obstructions.

Heavenly policies,
are found in the Good Book
for God left them to us
as salvation’s handbook.

For inside the pages,
is where you will find
inspirations from God
for both heart and mind.

Heavenly directives,
are for our own good
for they tell us how
to live as we should.

They gives us the tools,
we must have to fight
those worldly-minded
opposing His light.

Heavenly mandates,
not those political . . .
for we must not follow
what is non-biblical!

I pray for all the eyes,
that still need opening
so on the hope of Jesus
they can start focusing.

For when they open,
up to Him their eyes

I pray for the hearts,
that need enlightening
so they will see the sin
that they’re entertaining.

For when they open up,
the heart of their mind
the grace and love of Jesus
they will be able to find.

I pray for all the eyes,
of every heart and soul
who need Jesus’ healing
so they can be made whole!

with winds so unexpected
no wonder we need . . .
to run until perfected!

but our Good Shepherd
love is unrelenting!

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.
