A Long As We Exist ~

Lord, show us Your paths,
as long as we exist . . .
to Your righteous ways
may we never resist.

Teach us to be still,
until the timing is right
give us the strength
in the battles we fight.

Let us not be impatient,
til in the future we meet
guide each and every step
of our oft stumbling feet.

Keep us from becoming,
ever fearful and afraid
let us not limit You
so we’ll not be dismayed.

Lord, show us Your Ways,
reveal to us Your plans . . .
so we may come to rest
in Your almighty hands!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:7a

Rest in the Lord,
and wait patiently
for him:

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not;
for I am with thee:
be not dismayed;
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.

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,
up the mountains and hills
He takes me to places
for me to discover His will.

It’s there where I observe,
the path planned for me
as He directs my feet . . .
to where they need to be.

The Lord takes me,
to places high and low
to make it clear to me
the way I should go!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107: 7

And he led them forth
by the right way,
that they might go to
a city of habitation.

He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

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!

Psalm 32:8

“I will instruct thee and teach thee
in the way which thou shalt go:

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

O the depth of the riches both
of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
how unsearchable are his judgments,
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
a word behind thee, saying,
This is the way, walk ye in it,
when ye turn to the right hand,
and when ye turn to the left.

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!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things
work together for good to
them that love God, to them
who are the called according
to his purpose.

Jesus Is My Shepherd ~


He is my Shepherd,
I am His lamb . . .
I know He loves me
just as I am.

I will follow Him,
wherever He goes
for I’m confident
the way He knows.

I’ll never leave Him,
beside Him I’ll stay
I will not from Him
wander off or stray.

I’ll remain by Him,
He’ll be at my side
my steps of faith
I trust He will guide.

Jesus is my Shepherd,
His voice I do hear . . .
as long as I follow Him
I have nothing to fear!

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!

~~~~~~~~~~

Joshua 1:9

“Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;

On The Path To Life ~

God leads us,
on the path to Life
He guides our steps
in the thick of strife.

He offers to us,
His hand guiding
He catches our feet
when they go sliding.

Traveling together,
we follow, He leads . . .
knowing He’ll take
care of our needs.

He teaches us along,
the righteous way
how to stay close
how never to stray.

A walk of faith,
together we take
on the road to Life
for His name sake!

on paths upright
and I follow Him
much to His delight.

He guides me in ways,

Jesus leads me,

He helps me through
periods of doubt.

For He satisfies,
my hunger and thirst
tis why each morning
I seek His face first.

Jesus leads me,
now and to the end
for He is my one . . .
true eternal Friend.

Starting A New Year ~

I’m starting a New Year,
putting the last behind . . .
for, God has a purpose
in this one for me to find.

I don’t know what it’ll be,
not sure where it’ll lead
but, God will guide me
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.

I’m starting a New Year,
just like the one before . . .
trusting God with the future
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!

2 Timothy 3:16

The Hope Of Jesus ~

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
they’ll see right through
all of satan’s lies.

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!

No Wonder We Need ~

Life is full of storms,
valleys plenty deep
no wonder we need . . .
a Good Shepherd’s keep.

With all the uncertainty,
each day we must face
no wonder we need . . .
a sufficient dose of grace.

Our fears can be many,
our worries limitless
no wonder we need . . .
God’s mercy measureless.

With all the challenges,
we daily go through
no wonder we need . . .
God our hearts to renew.

Life is full of storms,
with winds so unexpected
no wonder we need . . .
to run until perfected!

Stubborn To The Bone ~

We’re all like sheep,
stubborn to the bone
to our waywardness
we are severely prone.

But our Good Shepherd,
finds us when we roam
and with His rod
brings us back home.

We’re all like sheep,
overly obstinate
we all have strayed
no matter the continent.

But our Good Shepherd,
will find each of us
and with His staff
teach us how to trust.

We are all like sheep,
our roaming is unending
but our Good Shepherd
love is unrelenting!

All we like sheep
have gone astray;
we have turned every one

when I seek Him out
He guides me through

then let His Word
in my life inspire.

Jesus leads me,
I look for His instruction
as together we walk . . .

Put God Before You ~

Make God first in your life,
put Him before you . . .
open up your heart to Him
then watch what He can do.

He’ll guide you into valleys,
ripe and lush and green
where you’ll find His peace
to gather, reap and glean.

Put God ahead of you,
let Him guide you each day
open up your mind to Him
then let Him lead the way.

He’ll take you to mountains,
rough and tough and steep
where you’ll find His strength,
to climb, to mount, to leap.

Make God first in your life,
in your soul, mind and heart
put God before you . . .
upon each morning start!

But seek ye first the kingdom of God,

to work things out.

Lord was not in the earthquake:

And after the earthquake a fire;
but the Lord was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice.

~ Where Old Path’s Lead ~

Lord, lead me to the old paths,
the ones tried and true . . .
so I may follow Your ways
in all I set out to do.

Let me not forget Thy grace,
the election of my inheritance
let me not lose sight of You
due to my prideful arrogance.

Let me not be caught up in,
the gospel of convenience
one that doesn’t include
from sin any abstinence.

Help me to stand and see,
to consider and to compare
the path of Your righteousness
so to false teachers I’ll be aware.

Let me not be deceived,
by the spirit of this age
in the church of the godless
where You have been upstaged.

Lord, may I walk the old paths,
for I know they lead to You . . .
let me not walk on the paths
that the heathen people do!

~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 6:16

“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways,
and see, and ask for the old paths,
where is the good way, and walk therein,
and ye shall find rest for your souls.
But they said, We will not walk therein.”

Let the truth guide you,
let it lead your way . . .
so on the narrow path

For, without the truth,
there are only lies
causing you to take

Let the truth be your rule,
let it be your banner
so into the straight gate
you’ll be able to enter.

For, without the truth,
satan will try to deceive
making you doubt
everything you believe.

Let the truth guide you,
let it direct you too
listen and follow . .
Jesus’ voice in you!

And I give unto them
eternal life; and they

For throughout the pages,
flow all the issues of this life
along with the instructions
on how to overcome strife.

These teachings aren’t easy,
some of them are tough
but, they’ll help us to get by
when the going gets rough.

They will direct and lead us,
onto the righteous way
if we are willing to follow
the words they have to say.

There are many lessons,
to be learned and taught
for when we are inclined . . .
God will shape our thought!

God’s Ways Are Better ~

God’s ways are not ours,
for ours ways are skewed
and often God’s direction
we don’t want to include.

We think we understand,
what God wants us to do
but we fail to look at things
from His point of view.

God’s plans are not ours,
for ours are often rash
before consulting Him
out the door we dash.

We believe we can reason,
with our own reasoning
and to God’s instructions
we are not listening.

God’s ways and plans,
are always better . . .
when we follow them
to the letter!

Isaiah 55:8-9

For my thoughts
are not your thoughts,

than the earth, so are my ways
higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts.
