God, My Strength ~

God, my Strength,
my Power, my Might
You make me fit . . .
for the battles I fight.

Through all the storms,
that have come my way
You give me the courage
to face them each day.

God, my Muscle,
my Vitality, my Vigor
You inspire me to be
for You a crown winner.

When spiritual battles,
I have to daily face
You give me resilience
to run the faithful race.

God, my Strength,
my Rock, my Song
thought I am weak . . .
You make me strong!

Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou
dismayed: for the Lord thy God
is with thee whithersoever
thou goest.

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.

God’s Awesome Power ~

Glory, Glory, Glory,
God’s awesome power
strikes in the darkness
in this gloomy hour.

Troubles may be brewing,
but His awesome love
beams down brightly
from His throne above.

Times may be testing,
but His awing peace
to all of His believers
will never fail or cease.

The tempest is a blowing,
but His amazing trust
keeps His faithful standing
against the strongest gust.

The earth is a trembling,
but His loving flock
knows He will not forsake
those clinging to the Rock.

Glory, Glory, Glory,
God’s awesome wonder
is shaking up the world
amidst His mighty thunder!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 77:18

The voice of thy thunder
was in the heaven:

the lightnings lightened the world:
the earth trembled and shook.

May You Be Enlightened~

May the eyes of your faith,
be so enlightened . . .
may the hope of Jesus
be in you heightened.

For there is great power,
when in God we do trust
for He has put His spirit
right into each one of us.

May your confidence,
be filled with God’s might
so the hope of your calling
may inflame and ignite.

For there is no other One,
on whom we can rely
only God our strength
and power can supply.

May the eyes of your faith,
be flooded with His light
for it is on His power
we are called to fight!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18-21

The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his calling,
and what the riches of the glory
of his inheritance in the saints,

And what is the exceeding greatness
of his power to us-ward who believe,
according to the working
of his mighty power,

Which he wrought in Christ,
when he raised him from the dead,
and set him at his own right hand
in the heavenly places,

Far above all principality, and power,
and might, and dominion, and every
name that is named, not only in this
world, but also in that which is to come:

You May Be Weak ~

You may be weak,
but, God is strong
you may be anxious
but, His patience is long.

You may be troubled,
but, God is not
you may be concern
but, He is never fraught.

You may be distraught,
but, God is not frantic
you may be desperate
but, He never panics.

You may be restless,
but, God never tires
you may give up
but, He never retires.

You may be weak,
weary every day . . .
but, with God’s strength
you’ll not faint away!

He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might
he increaseth strength.

When You Need A Hand ~

When you need,
a hand to hold . . .
before your knees
begin to fold.

Reach for the hand,
of God’s to clasp
and He will keep
you in His grasp.

When you need,
extra support . . .
before you legs
start to contort.

On God’s hand,
trust and lean
and His power
you will glean.

When you need,
to be bold . . .
onto God’s hand
keep a firm hold!

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:

The Quiet Heart ~

The quiet heart,
doesn’t fret
over its worries
it dosen’t sweat.

It knows to be,
composed and collected
it knows its strength
to God is connected.

The quiet heart,
doesn’t stew
over its cares
it doesn’t spew.

It knows to trust,
to be clam and still
it knows its life
is in God’s will.

The quiet heart,
doesn’t panic
over life’s woes
it’s not frantic!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 30:15

For thus saith the Lord God,
the Holy One of Israel;
In returning and rest shall
ye be saved; in quietness and
in confidence shall be your
strength:

From The Poem: I’ve Not The Power

 


Oh, To Know The Power ~

Oh, to know the power,
that Jesus’ death brings
is to have the saving faith
to trust Him for all things.

For in His resurrection,
we’re eternally transformed
and by the power of His Spirit
we are forever conformed.

Oh, to know the power,
that Jesus’ life brought
is to know your sins
on the cross He bought.

For in His death springs,
new birth, new purpose
for your very soul
He endured to purchase.

Oh, to know the power,
Jesus brings to everyone
is to know being saved . . .
a new life has just begun!

~~~~~~

Philippians 3:10

That I may know him,
and the power of his
resurrection, and the
fellowship of his sufferings,
being made conformable
unto his death.

I Can Do Zip ~

I can do nothing,
zip, nada, nil . . .
for I alone don’t have
the will or skill.

But, with God,
I know I can do
what’s impossible
when His strength I pursue.

I can do nothing,
zero, zilch, naught . . .
for I alone don’t have
the heart or thought.

But, with God,
what is unthinkable
with His mighty power
is accomplishable.

I can do nothing,
but, God can do it all . . .
for He has the power
on which for me to call!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me.

God Does the Unfeasible ~

God does the impossible,
when He desires, when He wants to
He can do the unfeasible
in the lives of me and you.

He can change the stoniest heart,
turn it into one of flesh
reshape it until with His own
the two of them begin to mesh.

God does the unthinkable,
when He needs, when He deems
He can do the improbable
with His mercy that redeems.

He can take the most blinded,
and give them eyes to believe
the love and grace of His Son
so salvation they’ll receive.

God does the impossible,
when He opts, when He decides
He can do the unachievable
in those who in Him abide!

~~~~~~~

Luke 1:37

For with God
nothing shall be
impossible.

Jeremiah 32:17

Ah Lord God! behold,
thou hast made the heaven
and the earth by thy great
power and stretched out arm,
and there is nothing too
hard for thee:

Strength In Weakness ~

Weakness allows in us,
Jesus’ strength to flow
it makes us meek
so His power we’ll know.

It makes us proclaim,
when I’m weak I’m strong
it makes our faith firm
when trials come along.

Weakness allows in us,
Jesus’ grace to be
sufficient each day
for everything we need.

It helps us to endure,
the tests and the trials
for His grace is the key
to our spiritual vitals.

Our weakness keeps,
Jesus’ grace moving . . .
so His strength in us
can continue improving!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Feeling Sluggish~

Feeling sluggish,
in a slump . . .
can’t seem to get
over that hump?

Then turn to Jesus,
so He can restore
your joy and strength
just as before.

Feeling blah,
a little lackluster
daily fortitude
you can’t muster?

Then take a hold,
of God’s mighty hand
so He can help you
rise up and stand.

Feeling dull,
lost your sharpness
then God’s power . . .
you’ll need to harness!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might.

Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:

I Have God’s Power ~

I have God’s power,
it’s right inside of me
it blesses me with faith
for things I can’t see.

It dissipates the doubt,
evaporates the fear
it allows me to believe
my God is always near.

I have God’s power,
He gave it to me the day
when to His Son . . .
I gave my heart away.

It lifted the darkness,
revealing His True Light
giving me the ability
to trust in His holy might.

I have God’s power,
to believe without seeing
it fills me with such hope
tis why it’s so freeing!

~~~~~~

Soar~

Eagles wings,
oh, how they soar
above the world’s
menacing roar.

Glide in faith,
on the air of trust
grows not weary
against the thrust.

Eagles wings,
strong and sure
torrid weather
they do endure.

Fainting not,
upon resistance
fly on hope
to go the distance.

Eagles wings,
mount and rise
above the fear . . .
before their eyes!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait
upon the Lord shall
renew their strength;
they shall mount up
with wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.

God Is Mightier ~

God is mightier than the battle,
you are facing right now . . .
He’s greater than your struggle
your defeat He won’t allow.

For His peace will overrule,
all your inner conflict
and His mercy will surpass
the hurt life can inflict.

God is stronger than the burden,
that is weighing you down
He’s more powerful than the storm
that’s swirling all around.

His balm is ever soothing,
it will heal all of your pain
His touch is life transforming
when in His hands you remain.

God is mightier than the battle,
that today you have to face
His sufficiency is copious
for abundant is His grace!

God’s Power Generator ~

I’ve got God’s power,
it makes me resilient
it’s energizing the faith
I need to be persistent.

It’s galvanizing,
supplying inside of me
the fuel to believe
in what I can’t see.

I’ve got God’s strength,
it’s alive and well
in my heart it grows
in my soul it swells.

It’s electrifying,
it’s mighty and strong
it sparks me to hope
in God all my life long.

I’ve got God’s power,
in me it generates
my faith and trust
it daily regulates!

God, My Refuge ~

God is my refuge,
a retreat for my soul
where life’s pressures
cannot take their toll.

His wings protect me,
a shelter they provide
whenever I am weary
a perfect place to hide.

God is my refuge,
a harbor to where I flee
whenever I’m tossed
upon life’s stormy sea.

When I need strength,
for the troubles I get in
I just turn to the Lord
my refuge from within.

God is my refuge,
a stronghold He is to me
an always present help . . .
I’ve found Him to be!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:1

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”

Psalm 91:1-2

“Whoever dwells in the shelter
of the Most High will rest in
the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD,
‘He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.’”

Mountain Moving ~

God gave me this mountain,
and told me to believe . . .
His strength and might
from Him I would receive.

So, I gathered up my faith,
though I admit it was small
compared to this mountain
that seemed seven-miles tall.

I looked at the obstacles,
I knew were in my way
and then I paraphrased
what Jesus had to say . . .

If you do not doubt,
you can save a lot of time
and pick that mountain up
instead of making the climb.

So, I mustered up the power,
that Jesus left for me . . .
picked that mountain up
and now I’m burden free!

~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a
grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.”

Tender-Loving Care ~

When your pain,
is too much to bear
and you need some
tender-loving care.

Know that God,
is there for you
and will your pain
ease and soothe.

When you’re beat,
and broken down
and it’s too hard
to move around.

Know that God,
will strengthen you
and your weariness
He will lessen too.

When you can’t speak,
or open up your eyes
know that God still can . . .
hear and see your cries!

“Thou holdest mine eyes waking:
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.”

The Power Of God ~

The power of God,
is inside of you
there isn’t anything
that you cannot do.

But, you must believe,
He will give the might
for every battle
that you have to fight.

The power of God,
is in His Son
there is enough
for everyone.

But, you must have faith,
His Spirit is in you
if the impossible
you really want to do.

The power of God,
is available to all
if on His strength
we remember to call!

Thing’s I Can’t Handle ~

I’ve heard people simply say,
God will not give me
anything I can’t handle . . .
but, with them I don’t agree.

For, I’ve looked in my Bible,
and saw how I’d be tested
once my life in Jesus . . .
became fully invested.

He said I’d face tribulation,
that I would be persecuted
and for my faith in Him
I could even be executed.

He said I’d have trials,
many worries and cares
that my very own cross
daily I’d have to bear.

So, when people tell me this,
I look right into their eyes . . .
and tell them I can’t handle things
unless His strength I excise!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

through Christ
which strengtheneth me.”

I’ve Not The Power ~

In myself,
I haven’t the power
to outrun satan
when he’s out to devour.

So, my spiritual sneakers,
I am putting on . . .
to insure this race
can be victoriously won.

I’ll pull up my laces,
God’s Word will be the knot
so to satan’s snares
off guard, I’ll not be caught.

With my Bible verses,
I’ll plan each of my steps
so I can remain diligent
in following the concepts.

In myself,
I haven’t the power
but, with God’s strength
satan, I will overpower!

~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:8

“Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary
the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking
whom he may devour:”

Philippians 3:14

“I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 119:32

I will run the way
of thy commandments,
when thou shalt
enlarge my heart.”

In His Strength ~

When troubles waters,
start to churn and swirl
before my faith . . .
can begin to spiral.

To my Lord,
I take my distress
and with His strength
I am blessed.

When my worries,
start to push and pull
before my faith . . .
becomes void and null.

To my Lord,
I take my praise
and in His strength
I am not fazed.

When troubled waters,
are all I can see . . .
I pray to my Lord
to strengthen me!

God Makes Things Happen ~

God makes things happen,
in His time, at His will
He can make the wind’s gust
or He can cause them to still.

He can alter the course,
of the season’s of the year
He can make them painless
or cause in them great fear.

God, makes things happen,
nothing is a coincidence
everything He does . . .
is of great significance.

He makes kingdoms rise,
He causes them to tumble
He can withdrawn His wisdom
or give it to the humble.

God, makes things happen,
in His time, at His will
there is no one else who has
His power, or His skill!

~~~~~

Daniel 2:20-21

“Daniel answered and said,
Blessed be the name of God
for ever and ever:
for wisdom and might are his:

And he changeth the times
and the seasons: he removeth kings,
and setteth up kings: he giveth
wisdom unto the wise,
and knowledge to them
that know understanding:”

Without The Lord’s Strength ~

Without the Lord’s strength,
like ice I would melt
from the frigid hand
in life, I’ve been dealt.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like the sand I would shift
if not for His grace
I’d be in a faithless drift.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a towel I would fold
if not for His love
I’d be left out in the cold.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a box I would cave
if not for His power
I’d still be to sin a slave.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a flower I would fade
if not for His mercy
I’d be alone and afraid.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a tree I would fall
if not for His forgiveness
I’d be nothing at all.

Without the Lord’s strength,
mercy, power, grace and love
I would be lost . . .
like a hand, missing a glove!

Like An Eagle ~

Renewed like an eagle,
my strength restored
the closer I sweep in
to Jesus, my Lord.

He gives me courage,
to go the distance
gives me His strength
when I meet resistance.

Just like an eagle,
the clouds I climb above
rising over my troubles
on the strength of His love.

I have the fortitude,
to  look into the eye
of each raging storm
that passes me by.

He renews my faith,
my trust He restores
until the day like an eagle
into heaven I soar!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“But they that wait
upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with
wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

God Never Gets Weary ~

Are you feeling fatigued,
by your weariness
are you exhausted
and feeling listless?

Then wait on the Lord,
your energy He’ll renew
for He never gets tired
of strengthening you.

Do you need recharging,
a shot of endurance
do you need fortitude
some extra assurance?

Then wait on the Lord,
faint He does not
He never gets worn-out
when His power is sought

Are you growing weary,
is your faith getting slack?
Then wait on the Lord . . .
for the strength you lack!

~~~~~

Isaiah 40:30-31

“Even the youths shall faint
and be weary, and the young
men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon
the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with
wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

He can’t be enclosed
you cannot out-wit Him
His will can’t be opposed.

God cannot be hedged-in,
He can’t be obstructed

His judgements cannot  . . .
nor will they be stopped!

Omnipotent ~

God is omnipotent,
He is mightily skillful
He does what He wills
He is effectively powerful.

God is more than able,
to do what is impossible
whenever He speaks
He makes all things possible.

God with stretched out arm,
created all living-things
the heavens and the earth
their kingdoms and their kings.

There is not anything,
that God’s will cannot do
even satan and his army
His mightiness can subdue.

God is omnipotent,
He gave to us the power
to overcome the world . . .
right up to the final hour!

With God Nothing is Too Hard ~

Nothing is Too Hard ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

What is impossible,
for me and you
to God it’s not
too hard to do.

There is no promise,
God can’t fulfill
there is no fear
He can’t distill.

There is no prayer,
God can’t answer
there is no storm
He can’t anchor.

There is no problem,
God can’t resolve
there is no sin
He can’t absolve.

There is no place,
God can’t send revival
there is no enemy
He can’t bridle.

What is too hard,
for each one of us
is much easier . . .
when in God we trust!

~~~~~

Genesis 18:14

“Is any thing too hard for the Lord?
At the time appointed I will return

My Arrow Deflector ~

My Arrow Defector ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Lord is my shield,
my true protector
He is my only
arrow deflector.

He gives me courage,
to fight any attack
His is the confidence
that in myself, I lack.

He lifts my head up,
His glory holds me high
He is the only Helper
on whom I can rely.

He supports me,
He is my safeguard
He is my soul’s defender
my heart’s bodyguard.

The Lord is my shield,
my refuge, my guide
it’s His strength in me
that reflects from inside!

Strengthen Me Lord ~

Give Me Strength Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, strengthen me,
let me not be a doubter
don’t let my weaknesses
steal away Your power.

Lord, strengthen me,
give me spiritual stability
let me not falter
due to my human frailty.

Lord, strengthen me,
as only You can do
let not my feebleness
take me away from You.

Lord, strengthen me,
fill me with Your might
give me endurance
in the faithful fight.

Lord, strengthen me,
be my power source
let Your Spirit’s might
though my body course!

Fear Not ~ CHRISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann

I am always with you,

I will give you strength,
boldness and courage
I am always with you
so don’t be discouraged.

I am always with you,
no need for you to fear
I will remain close
to you I will be near.

I will comfort you,
hold you in My hand
I am always with you
I have for you a plan.

I am with always you,

Power From the Throne ~

The Source of My Strengh and Power ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Our might comes from God,
it is not of our own . . .
it comes from the power
of the One, on the throne.

He is the only source,
on which we can extract
the power that we need
when Satan’s on the attack.

We do not need to fear,
when on His hand we rely
for His power and strength
He has promised to supply.

God said He’d equip us,
with the strength we need
to plow through all things
when to His will, we heed.

We need not be dismayed,
when trouble comes our way
for God will give us power
to muscle through the day.

Our might comes from God,
our own will only fail us
but oh, what strength we’ll have
when on His ~ we trust!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

Our Stronghold ~

Our Refuge ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah annIf God is our stronghold,
we will not faint
if He is our refuge
we’ll trust and wait.

If God is our rock,
we will be strong
if He is our fortress
we’ll sing a new song.

If God is our hedge,
we will be protected
if He is our salvation
we’ll never be rejected.

If God is our deliverer,
we will never fall back
if He is our shield
we’ll win every attack.

If God is our strength,
we will not be shaken
if He is our shelter . . .
we’ll not be forsaken!

Psalm 18:2

“The Lord is my rock, and my fortress,
and my deliverer; my God, my strength,

Unpluckable ~

Hand-of-JESUS

When you’re in a valley,
not sure what way to go
when the road ahead . . .
isn’t one that you know.

Look for Jesus’s light,
to show you the way
listen for His voice . . .
you’ll not be lead astray.

When you’re in the fire,
weak from all the heat
when feeling overwhelmed
before you suffer defeat.

Follow your inner man,
and you’ll be able to hear
the promise of Jesus . . .
you haven’t anything to fear.

When Satan comes calling,
and you have no way out
when sin tempts you . . .
and causes you to doubt.

Turn to Jesus and ask Him,
for the strength to withstand
then rest in knowing no one
can pluck you from His hand!

God is ever-present,

He promises to support me,
with His righteous hand
I know it’s by His power
I have the strength to stand.

God is always with me,
no matter what I do
whenever I’m distressed
His remedies I pursue.

I am not distraught,
if troubles come my way
for God will direct me
as I go about my day.

God is ever-present,
I haven’t anything to fear
for He has vowed to me
to remain close and near!

Waiting On The Lord ~

Waiting On The Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Are you waiting on the Lord,
are you patiently hanging on
are you staying in there strong
or is your faith almost gone?

Are you at your wit’s end,
are you in over your ears
are you questioning yourself
is your faith about your fears?

Are you seeing a sea of red,
are you sinking in your doubt
are you being overly anxious
is your faith running out?

Are you upset with the Lord,
are you distrustful He will act
are you questioning Him
is your faith running off track?

Are you ready to give up,
are you starting to go astray
are you feeling like it’s no use
is your faith slipping away?

Well, I want you to know,
God hasn’t given up on you
so just keep looking to Him
and your strength He’ll renew!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.”

All I Have to Do ~

All I Have to Do ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I get depressed,
when I get feeling blue
all I have to do Lord . . .
is to stop and think of You.

Just Your very name,
brings a smile to my face
reminding me, I am loved
in the fullness of Your grace.

When I get disheartened,
when I’m feeling all alone
all I have to do Lord . . .
is to look up, to Your throne.

Just knowing You’re above,
watching over me
makes me feel as if . . .
I’m already there with Thee

Whenever I get discouraged,
when I get feeling stressed
Lord, all I do is think of You . . .
to see how much I’m blessed!

Stormy Weather ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ He is in Control - IBible Verses

He makes the clouds form,
causes the winds to blow
sends the thunder clapping
generates a lightning show.

He sends the rain down,
causes torrential floods
sends the rivers flowing
produces a sea of mud.

He forms the snow flakes,
causes a gusting lift
sends the temps dipping
creates a blizzard’s drift.

He gathers up the waves,
causes them to merge
sends the power raging
composes an ocean surge.

No matter what storm,
right now, you may be in
remember this one thing . . .
they’re  all controlled by Him!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:26

“And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith? Then he arose,
and rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.

On Eagle’s Wings ~

eagle by Jonathan Ashcraft free photo

On eagle’s wings I soar,
higher than any kite
for, I am empowered . . .
by God’s strength and might.

Over rain-soaked clouds,
across the turbulent sea
the wings of my faith
lift and carry me.

Through the howling wind,
above each violent wave
the wings of my trust
always shield and save.

No matter the storm,
or from what direction
the wings of my belief
are my soul’s protection.

On eagle’s wings I soar,
in God’s strength and might
that is why today . . .
I fly higher than a kite!

how mercy and grace
purified out the dross.

Oh, the powerful words,

Unleashing God’s Power ~

Prayer is Powerful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When worry starts to flood,
like a windblown heavy rain
when you’re dispirited
by anxieties constant strain.

Turn to the Good News,
and as you begin to pray . . .
You will feel God releasing
His peace straight away.

When trouble begins to blow,
like a howling nor’easter
when you’re feeling downcast
in need of a warm comforter.

Turn at once to the Lord,
rush into His loving arms
knowing they’ll protect you
from everything that harms.

When grief overcomes,
like a crashing tidal wave
when you’re disheartened
drowning in a teary grave.

Turn to the Scriptures,
no matter what the hour
and with each tearful drop
let God, unleash His power!

When you’re feeling faint,

fresh energy for each hour.

When you’re feeling frail,
when you’re feeling defeated
when life has left you . . .
feeling spiritually depleted.

That’s when you need to go,

His strength you will find . . .
is waiting for you there.

When you need to feel strong,
instead of feeling weak
that’s when you need . . .
God’s grace to make you meek!

Conquerors ~

Your Love Never Fails by Al Freeman free photot # 15805

We can be conquerors,
if to Jesus we run
we can be victorious
if to sin, we shun.

We can be endurers,
if our Bible’s we read
we can be defenders
if to God’s will, we heed.

We can be champions,
if in afflictions, we grow
we can be victors
if the Good Word, we sow.

We can be winners,
if we run a faithful race
we can be examples
if we finish with grace.

We can be conquerors,
if we heed to Jesus’ call
we can be role models
if we share His love with all!

My Spirit I’ve given you
He has been your guide
in the things, I had you do.

I’ve given you mountains,
to climb and get over
when you fell or stumbled
I’ll drew you even closer.

I was the oasis,
in those trying, arid times
when you got thirsty
I sent water from My vine.

I have given you valleys,
some were deep and low
when you got depressed
heaven’s blessings I’d sow.

I was the calm out at sea,
in the storms or your life
when you got weary
I took upon your strife.

I’ve sent each experience,
so to Me, you’d draw near
to let you know with Me . . .
you’d have nothing to fear.

Child, my love for you,
is constant and true
so always remember . . .
I am the Rock to cling to!

When difficulties come at you,
and troubles are all around
when worried about life’s burdens
and their hurdles you can’t bound.

That’s when you need to take a grip,
hold on to God’s righteous hand
for, Jesus won’t let you fall
and in His strength you will stand.

When problems can’t be solved,
and you have nowhere else to turn
when others try to help you out
but your fears they can’t discern.

That’s when you need to take hold,
of God’s mighty right hand
for, Jesus won’t let you down
all your anxieties He’ll understand.

When life hands you a lemon,
but you don’t like lemonade . . .
when all those around you
fail to come to your aid.

That’s when you need to give up,
and rest in His loving hands
for, Jesus wants you to grasp
He has for you, His own plans!
