God’s Cup Is Brimming ~

God’s cup is brimming,
with His mercies and grace . .
He desires nothing more
than to see us finish the race.

So He gives us strength,
whenever ours is weak
keeping us humble
so we may remain meek.

He renews our faith,
so like eagles we’ll soar
in storms He helps us
to rise over the roar.

His anger is slow,
as we stumble along
His love is steadfast
to keep our trust strong.

He forgives and forgets,
our sins and our shame
He provides salvation
to all who call on His name.

God’s cup is brimming,
with compassion and favor
so He sent His own Son . . .
to be our personal Savior!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassion’s fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

Tears Fall From Up In Heaven ~

Tears fill up their ducts,
with deep sorrow they fall from
for His eyes see the sadness . . .
of the days still yet to come.

They well within their rims,
till they begin to overflow
for His eyes see the grief . . .
of what only He could know.

They trickle down His cheeks,
as they slowly start to run
for His eyes see the world . . .
without the love of His Son.

They flood from their brims,
and puddle onto the floor
for His eyes see the day . . .
this world will be no more.

Tears fall from up in heaven,
like a thunderous mighty rain
so many still live their lives . . .
in futileness and in vain.

God cries for the unsaved,
the lost, the unforgiven . . .
His tears reflect those who reject
what His Son has so freely given!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 78:40

How oft did they provoke him
in the wilderness,
and grieve him in the desert!

Luke 19:41

“And when He was come near,
He beheld the city, and wept over it.”

John 3.16

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

A Touch Of His Hem ~

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

For years I’ve been scorned,
shunned by those around me
so I hid myself in the crowd
hoping my shame He wouldn’t see.

As He passed by I reached down,
and took from Him my cure . . .
for, I believed this man named Jesus
would heal me if my faith was pure.

He called me His daughter,
when my trust 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
for, I believe as I touched His hem . . .
He imparted favor right into my soul.

There is a lesson to my story,
don’t be ashamed of your illness or sin
for Jesus still heals today . . .
if you let Him touch you from within!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:20-22

“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. “

God’s Favor For Us ~

God’s favor for us,
will not go away
His grace and love
are here to stay.

But we must have,
a contrite heart . . .
so mercy into it
He can impart.

God’s favor for us,
He daily releases
His blessings for us
He only increases.

But we must have.
a humble spirit . . .
so more of His grace
He can put into it.

God’s favor for us,
is our certainty
His grace and love
are for all of eternity!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 51:17

The sacrifices of God
are a broken spirit:
a broken and a contrite heart,
O God, thou wilt not despise.

James 4:6

But he giveth more grace.
Wherefore he saith, God
resisteth the proud, but giveth
grace unto the humble.

God Will Always Mend ~

I have lived a life of losses,
with hardship as my friend . . .
but I’ve come to understand
how God will always mend.

For there is not a problem,
too great for Him to take
not a soul He can’t change
regenerate or remake.

There isn’t a broken heart,
Jesus cannot repair . . .
not a soul He won’t save
from the depth of despair.

For there is not a worry,
which for Him is too small
no trouble is too imposing
for He came to bear them all.

So no matter what your loss,
no matter where you’ve been
let God repair and mend . . .
the effects of pain and sin!

~~~~~~

Psalm 34:18

The Lord is nigh unto them
that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of
a contrite spirit.

Forget The Past ~

There are many things,
we need to forget . . .
lest our soul’s will become
besieged by regret.

We need to wash our sins,
in the blood of grace
we need after former things
no longer pursue or chase.

We need to put the past,
behind us once and for all
we need on our failures
to cease on them to recall.

We need to banish our pride,
into the wilderness
we need to claim in Jesus
His love and forgiveness.

There are many things,
God has forgotten about us
now in His mercy . . .
we need to learn to trust!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 8:12

For I will be merciful
to their unrighteousness,
and their sins and their
iniquities will I remember
no more.

Where Faith and Love Dwells ~

Sometimes I wander through,
 the valleys of my soul . . .
lingering near the streams of life
when I felt well and whole.

I ponder the times Jesus filled in,
the empty and void space
where His love for me flowed
like a river full of endless grace.

As I stroll along the rugged clefts,
I can see the hard times too
as I roam all around them
His mercy for me shines through.

I come across the mountains,
that I had to hike up to . . .
some of them I never thought
the hard climb I could ever do.

But I remember seeing Jesus,
standing upon the crest
calling down to me
“Come, I’ll give you rest.”

Sometimes I like to wander,
through life’s hills and dells
and go deep into my soul . . .
where faith and love dwells!

That Christ may dwell
in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted

The Depth of God’s Mercy ~

When I am knee high,
in grief and sorrow
when I am anxious
about each tomorrow.

I look at the span,
of God’s mercy . . .
instead of the extent
of my worry.

When I am waist deep,
in the vast unknown
when fear’s grip
clinches my backbone

I look to the depth,
of God’s grace . . .
instead of the expanse
of the dark space.

When I am as low,
as I can possibly go . . .
I look to the favor
God on me bestows!

~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come
boldly unto the throne
of grace, that we may
obtain mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need.

Faith Springs Forth ~

Faith springs from the heart,
as mercy falls from above
the earth becomes enriched
by the grace of Jesus’ love.

Hope dwells internally,
the seed has been planted
all who willing come to Jesus
eternal salvation is granted.

Truth descends from heaven,
peace to earth Jesus brings
the world opens up its arm
to receive its King of Kings.

Righteousness sprinkles down,
on a land parched and dry
the God of all creation hears
His creature’s thirsty cry.

Faithfulness springs forward,
the earth receives a new start
mercy and truth have kissed . . .
warming the coldest of hearts!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 85.10-12

Mercy and truth are met
together; righteousness
and peace have kissed
each other.

Truth shall spring out
of the earth; and
righteousness shall
look down from heaven.

Yea, the Lord shall give
that which is good; and
our land shall yield
her increase.

A Sip From God’s Mercy Cup ~

When your heart screams,
I can’t take anymore . . .
when it can no longer
continue in torment’s war.

That is when it needs,
God protective shield
so to His perfect peace
it can begin to yield.

When you heart hollers,
stop terrorizing me . . .
when it shouts out loud
why won’t you let me be.

That’s when it needs,
Jesus to console it
so He can bring His calm
into your own spirit.

When your heart comes,
to a place of giving up . . .
stop and take a long sip
from God’s mercy cup!

From The Poem: Give Me A New Morning

 


My Feet Have Slipped ~

My feet have slipped,
a thousand times . . .
they have stumbled into
satan’s land mines.

They have wandered,
both far and wide
they have retreated
in a race to hide.

My feet have plunged,
into many a pit
they have caused me
from the truth to split.

They have traveled,
without a thought
they have ventured
from all once taught.

My feel have roamed,
they have strayed and slipped
yet, by the mercy of God . . .
He kept them in His grip!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 94:18-19

When I said, My foot slippeth;
thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.

In the multitude of my thoughts
within me thy comforts
delight my soul.

Under The Umbrella Of God’s Love ~

Under God’s umbrella,
of His merciful love
all of us He protects
from His throne above.

He shields our weary hearts,
covers our worried minds
so that His perfect peace
we can always come to find.

Under God’s umbrella,
of Jesus’ forgiving grace
are the spokes of trust
to keep us going in the race.

He gives us the faith,
everyday to help us cope
by giving us His Spirit
of abounding, living hope.

Under God’s umbrella,
of His mercy above
there is a plethora . . .
of hope, peace and love!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 28:7

The Lord is my strength
and my shield; my heart
trusted in him,
and I am helped:

therefore my heart
greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song
will I praise him.

Breaking The Chain of Pain ~

Living in the past,
is so easy to do . . .
it’s not hard to recall
the bad things done to you.

Letting go is not so simple,
there’s no effort in hanging on
and to forget the past images
takes an awful lot of brawn.

So, we live with the despair,
the heartaches and the pain
and the peace God promised
our misery will only drain.

It’s not until we come,
to a place where we forgive
that we find the tranquility
in which God wants us to live.

So, if you are in the shackles,
which bind you to the past
let Jesus release your burden
and you’ll be free at last!

Psalm 55:22

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

In God’s holy presence,

There is peace and hope,
a spreading of refreshing
an ongoing revolving
of life-changing blessings.

In God’s holy presence,
there’s mercy restoring
upon the Holy Spirit’s
heart filling outpouring.

There’s an internal calm,
an outgoing of favor
the ongoing flowing
of grace from a Savior.

In God’s holy presence,
here and above . . .
there’s an effortless flow
of steadfast love!

Give Me A New Morning ~

Give me a new morning,
on which to arise . . .
were to God’s mercies
I’ll again be apprised.

Let me see hope’s beams,
shedding on me His light
to remind me He kept me
safe through the night.

Give me a new dawn,
in which to awaken . . .
so all of God’s compassion
I can soak and take in.

Let me feel the coolness,
of the morning’s early dew
so I may again be aware
all things He makes new.

Give me a new morning,
where for His peace I await
as my soul to His glory . . .
begins to quietly awake!

When you feel heavy-laden,
by your every care
and the thought of tomorrow
you cannot seem to bear.

God’s compassions
heal and cure.

When you are over-loaded,
by your fear and doubt
God’s merciful compassion

The Source of My Solace ~

God is the source,
of my solace . . .
for His loving-kindness
is perfect and flawless.

Whenever I need,
His mercy anew
for me He always . . .
pulls right through.

He sends me peace,
whenever I’m afflicted
consoles me with
a love unrestricted.

When more grace,
I need to get by
He sends it to me
without asking why.

God is the source,

Days Without Rain ~

God didn’t promise us,
days without any rain
times when we’d have
no suffering or pain.

But, He did promise us,
He’d always be there
to carry our burdens
and to ease our care.

God didn’t promise us,
skies constantly blue
nor that thunderous storms
in our lives wouldn’t brew.

But, He did promise us,
the grace to endure
His wings as a shelter
to keep us secure.

God didn’t promise us,
life would be pain-free
but, He did promise us . . .
through it all, He would be!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:45

“That ye may be the children
of your Father which is
in heaven: for he maketh
his sun to rise on the evil
and on the good, and sendeth
rain on the just
and on the unjust.”

There’s Nothing So Hard ~

 

There is no heart so hard,
that God cannot transform
there is no soul so dark
that mercy cannot reform.

There is nothing so hard,
that God will have us to do
there are no circumstances
that He can’t strengthen you.

There is no trial too hard,
that God can’t help us bear
there is no test so daunting
that grace won’t meet us there.

There is no road too hard,
that God may have for us
there is no path so tough
that we can’t learn to trust.

There’s nothing so hard,
that God cannot do . . .
there is no heart so powerless
when He lives inside of you!

it can loosen every chain
holding one of His children
in the torment of their pain.

The mercy of God is powerful,
it breaks the sinful binds
it restores and it can heal
His children’s hearts and minds.

The mercy of God is delivering,
it weakens wickedness’ grasp
it gives His children strength
from satan’s hold, to unclasp.

The mercy of God is freeing,
it separates good from evil
His children it will save
from the schemes of the devil.

The mercy of God is bountiful,
it’s sufficient and plenteous
His children know intimately
just how much, He is gracious!

filled with painful things
we all need God’s mercy
and the healing that it brings!

God Get’s You ~

God gets you,
He knows what you’re all about
He sees into your mind
He gets you from the inside out.

God gets you,
He sees through all the layers
He knows what’s going on
for He’s a heart surveyor.

He has got you pegged
no matter how hard you try

He gets that you have
over them some misgivings.

He tracks your every move
knows every wrong turn took.

God gets you,
yet, He loves you anyway
for He understands you
in every single way!

The Microscope of Grace ~

hidden-sin-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Under the microscope of grace,
God sees our imperfection
and we must be willing to open . . .
up our hearts for His inspection.

Through the lens of His mercy,
He can spot our hidden sin
and we must let Him search
the crevices within.

His light will focus in on,
the darkness still inside
and we must realize from Him
there’s nothing we can hide.

With compassion and pity,
God sees us who we are
He can spot in a second
those close to Him or far.

God looks for His Son’s image,
to be reflected back at Him
and under grace’s microscope . . .
He sees through our secret sin!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 4:5
King James Version

“Therefore judge nothing
before the time,

until the Lord come,
who both will bring to light

the hidden things of darkness,
and will make manifest

the counsels of the hearts:
and then shall every
man have praise of God.”

Today’s Supply of Mercy ~

Today's Supply of Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, a new day has come,
another one for me to face
and I know I can’t make it
without Your love and grace.

I’ll too need Your mercy,
if I am to stay strong
and please will You send me
some joy to take along.

But mostly give me peace,
through the course of day
so I can keep worry
doubt and fear at bay.

And while You are at it,
there is one more thing
I need hope regardless
of what today may bring.

Lord, a new day has come,
one now I’m ready to face . . .
because I know I’m supplied
with Your mercy, love and grace!

I Love God's Mercy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I love God’s mercy,
I too, love His grace
for my faith and trust
on them I do base.

For where would I be,
if God didn’t send
Jesus to be . . .
my eternal Friend.

I love God’s mercy,
His grace, I love too
for each day my heart
they restore and renew.

For they bring me hope,
make all look bright
they give me strength
in the battles that I fight.

I love God’s mercy,
I too, love His grace
they are the reasons
my sins are erased.

For they have freed me,
from the pit of hell
tis why on both of them
I so often dwell!

Seeking God’s Favor ~

Seeking God's Favor ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Those who seek God’s favor,
before they start their day
find protection for their soul
as they go about their way.

Our early cries to God,
our morning meditation
are for our troubled soul
the best kind of medication.

Those who seek God’s mercy,
with a heart full of praise
find peace and tranquility
along life’s winding maze.

Our pleas for daily strength,
our prayers for our enemy
are our souls best defense
with an everlasting remedy.

Our requests to God,
our petitions for endurance
are for our thankful souls
a shield of assurance.

Those who seek God’s favor,
in the early morning light
are the ones who are filled
with His power and His might!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:1-3

“Give ear to my words,
O Lord, consider my meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry,

thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear

in the morning will I direct
my prayer unto thee,
and will look up.”

as showers of God’s mercy
on me, come to rest.

Healing and restoring,
hope, drips from above
droplets of God’s goodness
trickles of His love.

Oh, how I am thankful,
oh, I am blessed
as showers of God’s mercy
on me, come to rest.

Compassion and pity,
downpours of sweet liberty
showers of redemption
cloud bursts of tranquility.

Oh, how I am thankful,
oh, I am blessed
as showers of God’s mercy
on me, come to rest.

Showers of mercy,
each day to embrace
each drop a reminder . . .
of God’s saving grace!

“The Lord is good to all:
and his tender mercies
are over all his works.”
