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 ~

In God’s holy presence,
there’s joy in its fullness
pleasures circulating
His everlasting goodness.

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!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

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!

God’s Mercies & Compassions ~

When you feel burdened,
by the worries you carry
and to the future
you are more than wary.

Know this one thing,
to be true . . .
God’s endless mercies
will renew.

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

Know this one thing,
to be sure . . .
God’s compassions
heal and cure.

When you are over-loaded,
by your fear and doubt
God’s merciful compassion
will fail ~ you not!

~~~~~~~~~~~

The Source of My Solace ~

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

Whenever I need,
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 questioning why.

God is the source,
of my contentment
for He always brings
my soul refreshment.

And so to all of you,
my solace I pass along
so the God of our comfort
will too, make you strong!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

” Blessed be God,
even the Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies,
and the God of all comfort;

Who comforteth us
in all our tribulation,
that we may be able to
comfort them which are
in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith
we ourselves are comforted of God.”

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!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 32:27

“Behold, I am the Lord,
the God of all flesh:
is there any thing
too hard for me?”

The Mercy of God is Powerful ~

The Mercy of God is potent,
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!

God Is Full of Mercy ~

God is full of mercy,
I know this to be true
and He wants me
to give some to you.

So, I pray He’ll comfort,
you in your suffering
and my pleas for you
to Him I’ll be offering.

God is full of favor,
I know this to be true
and He has given me
compassion just for you.

So, I’ll be asking Him,
to bring your heart peace
and that onto Jesus . . .
your cares you’ll release.

God is full of grace,
I know this to be true
and He wants me to show
how much He loves you.

So, I will be making,
for you intercessions
and pray His mercy
relieves your afflictions!

~~~~~~~~~

which are in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith
we ourselves are comforted of God.”

We All Have A Past ~

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all cringe . . .
at the memories they bring.

We all need to find,
God’s favor and grace
we all need God’s mercy
so the past we can face.

We all have feelings,
of resentment and ill-will
we all wince . . .
at how others make us feel.

We all need to find,
God’s healing peace
we all need God’s mercy
so our pain He can release.

We all have suffered,
the heartache of rejection
we all recoil . . .
when the past we mention.

We all need to find,
God’s way to forgiveness
we all need God’s mercy
so we can be rid of bitterness.

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all need God’s mercy
and the healing that it brings!

God Get’s You ~

god-gets-you-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God gets you,
He knows what you’re all about
He sees into your heart
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 an intention surveyor.

God gets you,
He has got you pegged
no matter how hard you try
you cannot pull His leg.

God gets you,
He knows your shortcomings
He gets that you have
over them some misgivings.

God gets you,
He can read you like a book
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!

~~~~~~

Psalm 139:1-3

O lord, thou hast searched me,
and known me.

Thou knowest my downsitting
and mine uprising,
thou understandest my
thought afar off.

Thou compassest my path
nd my lying down, and art
acquainted with all my ways.”

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 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,
throughout the day
so I can keep worry
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 ~

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,
my King, and my God: for unto
thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear
in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I direct
my prayer unto thee,
and will look up.”

Mercy’s Showers ~

Mercy Showers ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Showers of mercy,
fall on me each day
sprinkles of God’s favor
on my soul spray.

Oh, I am grateful,
oh, how I’m blessed
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 gift of grace!

Without God’s Mercy ~

Without God's Mercy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Without God’s mercy,
I would be pitiful
without His favor
I would be miserable.

Without His compassion,
I wouldn’t be sympathetic
without His humbleness
I wouldn’t be apologetic.

Without God’s clemency,
I would be hopeless
without God’s patience
I would be useless.

Without His mildness,
I would not be forgiving
without His tenderness
I would not be accepting.

Without God’s mercy,
I would be deplorable
without His favor
I would be just horrible!

~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12-13

“Put on therefore, as the elect of God
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness, longsuffering;

Forbearing one another, and forgiving
one another, if any man have a quarrel
against any: even as Christ forgave
you, so also do ye.”

Closer to God ~

Rest the Devil ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The closer to God I am,
the more meek I need to be
the nearer to Him I get
the more He wants of me.

The faster I understand,
the quicker I can see
surrendering all to God
will make the devil flee.

The deeper I know God,
the greater is my sin
more serious are the ones
I’ve  hidden away from Him.

The earlier I can turn,
from being double-minded
the sooner I’ll not be
by Satan’s lies blind-sided.

The humbler I become,
the closer to God I get
the nearer to Jesus I am
the more my sins, I regret!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:7-9

“Submit yourselves therefore to God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
 and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep:
let your laughter be turned to mourning,
and your joy to heaviness.”
