My Hope is Set ~

My Hope is Set ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I don’t put my faith,
in what man can offer me
my hope is only set in . . .
things I cannot yet see.

I don’t put my trust,
in worldly lusts or bling
my hope is only set in . . .
what Jesus is going to bring.

I don’t put my faith,
in the government
my hope is only set in . . .
God’s enpowerment.

I don’t put my trust,
in fleshly desires
my hope is only set in . . .
doing what God requires.

I don’t put my faith,
in myself or mankind
my hope is only set in . . .
God’s purposes by design!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 118:8-9

“It is better to trust
in the Lord than to
put confidence in man.

It is better to trust
in the Lord than to
put confidence in princes.”

Take Heart ~

Take Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Take heart,
lest you become weary
for I’ll never forsake you
though things may be dreary.

Take heart,
when troubles come your way
for I came to give you peace
by shedding light on your way.

Take heart,
when worry’s at your door
for I came to give you hope
in a new life for evermore.

Take heart,
when burdens laden you
for I will lead and guide you
on what you need to do.

Take heart,
when disappointments mount
for I came to encourage you
on Me, you can always count!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 16:33

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.”

The Hope I Found ~

hopeeternal-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When my spirit is spent,
and my heart is discontent
it’s when the hope I found
turns everything around.

It renews and refreshes,
my soul it replenishes
each day, new mercies flow
till no longer unrest grows.

When my days are dreary,
and my life is weary
it’s when the hope I found
in my heart, leaps and bounds.

If fills me with inspiration,
praise and adoration
for my God, my Lord, my King
my devotion to Him, I sing.

When my strength fails,
and my trust pales
it’s when the hope I found
turns my heart around!

Psalm 31:24

“Be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the LORD.”

A Living Hope ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ New Birth IBible Verses

I’ve got me a living hope,
it’s as real as can be
a sure and certain hope
that has taken hold of me.

I’ve got me a lively hope,
once Jesus, I received
a sure and certain hope
His resurrection, I believe.

I’ve got me a future hope,
my death is not the end
a sure and certain hope
into heaven, I will ascend.

I’ve got me a looming hope,
when Jesus comes again
a sure and certain hope
eternal life, I will attain.

I’ve got me a present hope,
that today I can enjoy
a sure and certain hope
every day I can employ.

I’ve got me a current hope,
my faith in Jesus is why
a sure and certain hope
God’s power will get me by.

I’ve got me a living hope,
for the future and today
a sure and certain hope
with Jesus, I’ll be someday!

1 Peter 1:3-5

“Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant mercy
hath begotten us again unto a lively hope
by the resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible,
 and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,
reserved in heaven for you,

Who are kept by the power of God
through faith unto salvation ready
to be revealed in the last time.”

My Anchor, My Hope ~

wehavehope ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, tether me to the Anchor,
where I can put my trust
tie me tightly to the Rock
so my faith won’t get crushed.

Securely fasten me,
to the reason for my hope
may the fibers of Your grace
be the strength to help me cope.

Lord, tether me to the Anchor,
who will hear my daily prayers
to the One who will shelter me
while taking away my cares.

Bring me safely to the shore,
when floating out to sea
let the Holy Spirit direct
and constantly guide me.

Lord, tether me to the Anchor,
the Savior of my soul
give to Him in my life . . .
complete power and control!

Our Burden Bearer ~

cast-all-your-burdens-to-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah belka

Lord, our burden bearer,
take from us our care
take away the heaviness
our tired hearts wear.

Take from us our weariness,
take from us our trouble
take away the listlessness
our tired souls battle.

Take from us our load,
take from us the heavy weight
take away the problems
on our tired minds that grate.

Take from us our pain,
take from us the deep ache
take away all the sorrow
and heal our heartbreak!

You are my all in all

when on Your name I call.

continue to rise to the surface.

You’re my joy and happiness,
You are always around
in Your grace and mercy
I have learned to abound.

You are my helper,
You bring me great comfort
trusting in You . . .

You’re my beginning and end
You are my Lord, my Savior
my eternal Friend.

My Hope ~

my-hope-is-in-you CHRISTian poetry be deborah ann

While my flesh,
withers away
my hope is in
a better day.

The time coming,
when I’ll be at peace
while I’m waiting
my hope won’t cease.

Pressing on,
forward I go
perfect hope
in my soul flows.

As I wait,
for the Lord to come
on my heart-strings
my hope will strum.

Looking onward,
Jesus in my sight
eternal life . . .
hopes greatest delight.

While my flesh,
withers away
my hope rests in
that glorious day!

Love and Marriage?

therefore-what-god-has-joined-together-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Spouse not listening,
doesn’t hear what you say
thinking of parting . . .
going off your own way?

Wife doesn’t get you,
always nagging and complaining
thinking of finding . . .
a relationship more sustaining?

Husband mad and angry,
always yells and screams
thinking of looking . . .
for the man of your dreams?

Children too stubborn,
rebellious and defiant
thinking of going . . .
so they’ll be more compliant?

In-laws causing problems,
always meddling in your life
thinking of departing. . .
to put an end to the strife?

Every marriage,
brings irritation and frustration
but if  you call it quits . . .
it’ll bring spiritual starvation.

For, what God has put together,
He doesn’t want to see fall apart
your marriage He can heal . . .
if you let Him, take hold of your heart!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 19:6
King James Version

“Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together,
let not man put asunder.”

A Lively Hope ~

Beleive used with permission IBible Verses

I’ve got me a lively hope,
a perpetual supply of grace
for I know one glorious day
I’m going to see God face to face.

I’ve got me a transforming hope,
an abundant supply of favor
mercy beyond all cost or measure
in the Lord my eternal Savior.

I’ve got me an active hope,
and I’m full of anticipation
for the day my Lord will come
is my confident expectation.

I’ve got me a breathing hope,
it is permanent and undying
my future blessings are a fact
and on Christ Jesus I am relying.

I got me an incorruptible hope,
an inheritance that’s all mine
nothing that I have earned at all
but one that is of God’s design.

I’ve got me a living hope,
an everlasting supply of love
for I know one glorious day
I’m going to be with my Lord above!

This Hope ~

Thy Kingdom COme used with perrmission IBible Verses

There’s a hope that is perfect,
it doesn’t rust or fade
it never spoils, won’t perish
it is not man-made.

This hope is based on fact,
it’s not just wishful thinking
this hope is the Gospel truth
and will have you rethinking.

This hope holds the promise,
of an expectation yet to come
in a house with many rooms
in our Father’s kingdom.

This hope isn’t a work of fiction,
it comes with an eternal plan
Jesus has prepared a place
for every child, woman and man.

This hope is in our Savior,
it is given to all who believe
and it is yours to behold
if  Jesus ~ you’ll receive!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:4-5
King James Version

“To an inheritance incorruptible,

Joy Will Come Again ~

My Heart rejoices in Your Salavation used with permission from DoorPost Verses on Facebook

Right now, you may be feeling down,
for the dreams you’ve yet to attain
feel dismayed for now, but oh my friend
His Joy will come again.

Or maybe you’re stuck in the same old rut,
and all you want to do is run for the door
feel trapped for now, but oh my friend,
His Joy will yet again soar.

Perhaps you’re weary of the days ahead,
and fed up with where you’ve been
feel depressed for now, but oh my friend
His joy will soon bring a grin.

The day is over and the night is near,
and your worries won’t let you go
feel anxious for now, but oh my friend
His joy will once more flow.

You see my friend, God promises us,
that we may weep long into the night
but, His joy will come again . . .
the moment we see His saving light!

Rejoice, I say rejoice,
in everything have hope
don’t just sit around
lest you turn into a mope.

See how content I am,
see that look on my face
that’s the look of patience
for I’m resting in God’s grace.

I know the importance,
to pray about everything
so I don’t worry about
what tomorrow’s gonna bring.

Rejoice, I say rejoice,
be patient in all tribulation
pray to the Lord of your hope
and join me in my jubilation!

Just A Touch Of His Hem . . .

Encounters by Cameron Smith  free photo Creationswap

When I saw Him from a distance,
I ran and followed after Him
I believed all that I needed
was just a touch ~  of His hem.

For years I have been shunned,
turned away by those around me
so I hid myself in the crowd
praying my shame ~ He wouldn’t see.

As He passed  by I reached down,
and took from Him, my cure
for this man that they call Jesus
I knew He’d heal, if my faith was pure.

He stopped and called me His daughter,
when my belief in Him I revealed
and from that very moment
from my disease I was healed.

He bid to me to go in good comfort,
saying my faith had made me whole
I believe  as  I touched His hem . . .
He imparted His favor onto my  soul.

There is a moral to my story,
never be too ashamed of your illness or sin
for Jesus still  heals our weaknesses
if you just let Him touch you ~ from within!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matthew 9:20-22
King James Version

“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased
with an issue of blood twelve years, came
behind him, and touched the hem of his
garment: For she said within herself, If I
may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he
saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good
comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.
And the woman was made whole from that hour. “

My God is So Big ~

Gimpses by Paul Snyder free photo Creationswap

My God is so big . . .
He can conquer anything
He can turn a dry river
into a life-giving stream.

My God is so big . . .
He can carry my heavy load
He can lift from me my burdens
cause them to wither and erode.

My God is so big . . .
He can do the impossible
He can move any mountain
make the unfeasible possible.

My God is so big . . .
He can take away my fear
He can remove all my worries
for my God is always near.

My God is so big . . .
He can turn water into wine
He can bring back a lost soul
who’s fallen from His vine.

My God is so big . . .
He can part the Red Sea
He can heal the lame and sick
make the blindest of eyes to see.

My God is so big . . .
how big is that one of yours?
Mine will forgive you your sin,
if you’d just open to Jesus the door!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 3:20
King James Version

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:

Still Waters ~

Picture 140 by Brandon Doss Free photo #2383
Lord, lead me to still waters,
to the ripples of Your peace
so I may find Your goodness
in pleasures, never to cease.

Lead me by Your providence,
direct me with Your Word
let Your Spirit flourish in me
from the truth, I have heard.

Lead me to the purling spring,
where Your living waters flow
so that Your quiet gentleness
I may come to love and know.

Lead me with Your right hand,
let Your counsel be my guide
let my heart follow after You
so under Your wings I can abide.

Lead me to still waters,
that will ease away my strife
lead me to the fountain flowing
with the promise of eternal life!

Hope On ~

Hope on, all you who are in despair,
hope on, knowing He will forever care
rest in the promises of your Savior
and God will bless you with His favor.

Hope on, all you who are suffering,
hope on, let His mercy do the buffering
know that this too shall pass and end
and your problems God will fix and mend.

Hope on, you the fainthearted one,
hope on, and trust in His living Son
God’s grace will help and see you through
for there isn’t anything He can’t do.

Hope on, all those who have great sorrow,
hope on, He will bring a brighter tomorrow
find rest in God’s everlasting arms
and He’ll protect you from all that harms.

Hope on, all you who are in unending pain,
hope on, for soon you are going to gain
rest and comfort that only God can give
so hold on, and in His peace you shall live!

Fill Her Up!

Running on Empty by Jonathan Fox free photo #2429
Sometimes ~  my hope tank gets empty,
it runs dry and I start to rust
until I refill it with God’s promise
that in Jesus, I can always trust.

Sometimes ~ my faith tank is half-full,
I get too tired to take another leap
until I remember that to Jesus
I’ll always be,  His precious little sheep.

Sometimes ~ my confidence tank is low,
it feels as if I’m going to drown
until I remember what makes my hope float
then Jesus pulls me safely to the ground.

Sometimes ~ I just run out of  fuel,
there is not a drop that is left in me
until I remember  it is Jesus
that  in heaven I am gonna  see!

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

Jesus Will See You Through ~

Though your mind is weary,
and your spirit is feeling small
though your load is heavy
and your tears are like a waterfall.

Though the trial before you,
looks like the tallest mountain peak
and the hardship you now must face
is making you feel faint and weak.

Though you cannot see the future,
nor do you know where it might lead
and you don’t have the resources
for everything that you need.

Though your mind can’t understand,
and your body has not the wherewithal
lift your soul to Jesus . . .
who will see you through it all!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:34

My Hope ~

Hope Restored by Michael McFatridge free photo #5529

My hope doesn’t disappoint,
it never lets me down
my hope I can count on
I know it’s always around.

My hope is full of stillness,
it brings calmness and peace
my hope is everlasting
for it will never cease.

My hope is perpetual,
forever it goes on
my hope is never-ending
no way will it be gone.

My hope is in the promises,
that I find in His Word
my hope is my salvation
from the truth I have heard.

My hope has no real measure,
it can’t be tied up or bound

it can always be found.

My hope fills me with power,
it is strong and steadfast
my hope is in the Lord Jesus
and into eternity it will last!

Our Hope . . .

Hope Restored by Michael McFatridge free photo #5529
Hope paints a lovely picture,
of our future glory
it covers all the details
of God’s eternal story.

Its  embedded in our hearts,
sits on the horizon of our minds
it understands the will of God
His plans and His designs.

Hope is not something vague,
or a wish that you make
it’s knowing that you’re saved
from hell’s flaming lake.

Hope is our confidence,
our faithful expression
it leaves on our souls
a lasting impression.

So just close your eyes,
and use your imagination
let your hope in Jesus bring
a glorious transformation!

My New Year Prayer ~ 2013

Ring in New Year by Matt Gruber free photo #4493

I pray that this New Year,
will ring in God’s peace
I pray for a renewal of  every heart
that all hatred would cease.

I pray for all the innocent,
and for those who desire to kill
I pray for a longing in every heart
to come to know God’s will.

I pray for the helpless people,
and for those who live in sin
I pray for a hunger in every heart
that will let Jesus live within.

I pray for all who are hurting,
and for those who cause the pain
I pray for a thirst in every heart
so Jesus in their lives can reign.

I pray peace will ring in this year,
and all hatred would truly end
I pray for everyone to understand
Jesus is their eternal friend.

Jesus is Always There ~

Through all the pain and sorrow,
the ones we own, the ones we borrow
the ones we make, the ones we bear
Jesus is always there.

Within all the grief of our tears,
the ones of love, the ones of fears
the ones we cause, the ones we share
Jesus is always there.

During all the trials and tribulations,
the ones of hope, the ones of frustrations
the ones we conceal, the ones we declare
Jesus is always there.

In all the uncertainties that lay ahead,
the ones we know, the ones we dread
the ones we risk, the ones we dare
Jesus is always there.

Throughout the storms of this life,
the ones of calm, the ones of strife
the ones we cede, the ones we fare
Jesus is always there!
