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

“I can do all things
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!

which strengtheneth 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He can withdrawn His wisdom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!

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

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.”

God Can’t Be Contained ~

God cannot be boxed-in,
He can’t be contained
you cannot control Him
His power can’t be restrained.

God cannot be confined,
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
you cannot thwart Him
His Word can’t be corrupted.

God cannot be restricted,
He can’t be curtailed
you cannot halt Him
His plans can’t be derailed.

God cannot be confined,
His power can’t be blocked
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!

~~~~~~

Matthew 19:26

“But Jesus beheld them,
and said unto them,
With men this is impossible;
but with God
all things are possible.”

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
unto thee, according to the time of
life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

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:”

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!

~~~~~~

Psalm 3:3-5

” But thou, O Lord,
art a shield for me;
my glory, and the
lifter up of mine head.

I Am Always With You ~

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,

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,
in whom I will trust; my buckler,
and the horn of my salvation,
and my high tower.”

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!

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

John 10:29

“My Father, which gave them me,
is greater than all; and no man
is able to pluck them out of
my Father’s hand.”

God is Ever Present ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God is ever-present,
His help is always near
that is why I never have
anything to dread or fear.

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!

thank You, for making me
by Your stripes whole!
