Peace Abounding ~

May God give you peace,
of both heart and mind
may He lead you always
His tranquility to find.

May He guide you to,
His water’s calm and still
may their quiet ripples
His peacefulness instill.

May God give you peace,
beyond your reasoning
so your faith in Him
can keep on increasing.

May He direct you into,
pastures lush and green
so on His gentleness
you may rest and lean.

May God give you peace,
surreal and astounding
so the hope in your heart
continues abounding!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 15:33

” Now the God of peace
be with you all.”
Amen.

A Heart Quiet ~

A heart quiet,
is one trusting
one that doesn’t go
around fretting.

For, in God,
it is confident
because it knows
He is competent.

A heart quiet,
is one yielding
one that knows
it’s not worth worrying.

For in God,
it rests assured
it knows in Him
its peace is secured.

A heart quite,
is a heart that knows
God is with it
where ever it goes!

~~~~~~~

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:
and ye would not.”

In His Arms ~

In His arms,
is where I find
peace and rest
for heart and mind.

I snuggle there,
for quite a while
after all I am . . .
still His child.

I curl up,
in His loving arms
He keeps me safe
from all that harms.

I feel all warm,
cozy and secure
His embrace
helps me to endure.

In His arms,
no better place
to cuddle up
in His grace!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:11

“He shall feed his flock
like a shepherd:
he shall gather the lambs
with his arm,
and carry them
in his bosom,
and shall gently lead
those that are with young.”

Peace Unexpected ~

God gives to me,
peace unexpected
whenever His ways
I have respected.

A peace that calms,
my anxious soul
one guaranteed
to ease and console.

God gives to me,
peace surpassing
with the promise . . .
it’ll be everlasting.

A peace so unreal,
it’s out of this world
the kind only God
is able to unfurl.

God gives to me,
peace when I need it
whenever to His ways
I willingly commit!

~~~~~~~~~

Those Still Waters ~

When my spirit,
is weighted down
from the tension
that is all around.

My Good Shepherd,
brings to me
those still waters
where peace flows free.

When my spirit,
feels weary and spent
from all the cares
today I have met.

My Good Shepherd,
leads me to
those calming waters
where peace runs true.

When my spirit,
feels out of control
it’s in those still waters
Jesus calms my soul!

” He leadeth me beside
the still waters.”

Peace In Abundance ~

May the peace of God,
be our soul’s compass
may it lead us to find
in Him true oneness.

May His peace guide,
our thoughts and minds
may it direct us
so still waters we’ll find.

May the peace of God,
helps us to embrace
the scope and the depth
of His mercy and grace.

May the peace He embodies,
embody all of us too
wherever we may go
whatever we might do.

May the love of God,
we all encompass . . .
so we may experience
His peace in abundance!

~~~~~~

True Peace and Rest ~

If you want to find,
true peace an contentment
then in your heart to God
make a real commitment.

For, peace and happiness,
in this world can’t be had
as it only offers you . . .
passing fancy’s and fad’s.

If you want to find,
true peace and serenity
then your life from God
you can’t live separately.

For, true peace and joy,
just cannot be found
’til in your soul you know
you are heaven bound.

If you want to find,
true peace and rest
then your heart to Jesus
you must invest!

~~~~~~~

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.
Let not your heart
be troubled, neither
let it be afraid.”

My Secret Place ~

In that secret place,
is where I long to dwell
it’s when with my soul
all is quiet and well.

Underneath the shadow,
of God’s love and grace
it’s where my heart finds
a quiet resting place.

With the most High,
is where I yearn to be
it’s when in my mind
a calm settles in me.

With the Almighty,
in an untroubled solitude
where with His mercy
I am gloriously renewed.

In that secret place,
where with God I find
true peace and stillness
for my heart and mind!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1

“He that dwelleth in the
secret place of the most
High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.”

I Need to Know ~

Lord, I need to know,
how to be still . . .
I want to understand
Your perfect will.

I desire to believe,
You’re in control
I long to feel
trust in my soul.

I seek to find,
Your peace ideal
I search to discover
Your mercy’s real.

I wish to have,
faith complete
I care to believe
You’re my retreat.

Lord I need to know,
how to truly rest . . .
while You’re working out
for me, Your very best!

May God’s peace,
rule your mind today
may to its quieting lull
your heart give way.

May you experience,
God’s tranquility
may it fill you with
grace and humility.

May you relish,
the settled quietness
may you soak up
the sedated peacefulness.

May you encounter,
God’s perfect stillness
may you receive
His stilling calmness.

May the peace of God,
ease your worried mind
may in your heart
His serenity you find!

Peace Everlasting ~

One day the peace of God,
will be everlasting . . .
one day our cares on Jesus
we will not need to be casting.

One day eternal joy,
will replace our sadness
one day all of our tears
will be ones of gladness.

One day God’s mercy,
will no longer be needed
one day our every fear
will finally be defeated.

One day our true hope,
will be revealed to us
one day we will see
the God in whom we trust.

One day the peace of God,
will be truly everlasting . . .
and in our hearts and minds
it’ll no longer be surpassing!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication
with thanksgiving
let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Chilling Out ~

Today, I am chilling,
going to take it easy
not letting my fears
make me feel queasy.

Today, I am relaxing,
got me not a care
for, I took them all
to my Lord in prayer.

Today, I am resting,
letting go of it all
for, into the worry pit
I refuse to fall.

Today, I am slacking,
just Jesus and me
there’s not a doubt
together we will be.

Today I am chilling,
I’ll be easy-going . . .
for with God’s peace
I am overflowing!

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,

A Place to Hide ~

a-place-to-hide-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When I need a place,
to go and to hide
a place to escape
the upheaval outside.

I go to the refuge,
God has supplied
for in His Word I find
a safe place to abide.

When I need to get away,
from all the confusion
when I need to find
a place for seclusion.

I take refuge in Jesus,
knowing fully well
He’ll provide a haven
for my heart to dwell.

Whenever I need a place,
I can sneak off to
Lord, it’s no wonder I choose
to hide away with You!

~~~~~~

Psalm 142:5

“I cried unto thee, O Lord:
I said, Thou art my refuge
and my portion in the land

God Is Our Shelter ~

god-shelters-us-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God is our shelter,
in the storms of stress
He brings comfort
to us in our duress.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of sorrow
He gives us the joy
to face the morrow.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of fear
He brings peace
by drawing to us near.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of grief
He gives us strength
brings our hearts relief.

God is our shelter,
in all the storms of life
He brings the calm
in the midst of our strife!

“I will say of the Lord,

Peace Perfectly ~

peace-perfectly-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If we’re to have peace,
in our daily life
we need to stay fixed
on God, not our strife.

For, hearts that are stayed,
on God’s tranquility
are the hearts trusting Him
in all totality.

If we’re to have,
peace perfectly
than our minds must seek
Him thirstily.

For minds that are focused,
on God’s serenity
are the minds that believe
in Him entirely.

If we want to have peace,
our eyes need to be
steady on God . . .
not on the things we see!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 26:3

“Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.

At Your Feet ~

at-your-feet-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, some days I get so tired,
I feel as if I’m beat
and so all my weariness
I place right at Your feet.

As soon as I release,
my troubles into Your care
I no longer feel as if . . .
their mine alone to bear.

When my days are hard,
and my nights are long
its You whom I count on
to help me to be strong.

As soon as I turn over,
all of my worries to You
there is not a single thing
I feel we cannot do.

When I look for comfort,
to ease my weary mind
Lord, I know at Your feet
peace and rest I will find!

~~~~~~

“Come unto me,
all ye that labour

Praying for God Peace ~

praying-for-god-peace-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every day to God,
I pray for His peace
I ask that my faith
in Him, to increase.

I pray for renewal,
in spirit and in mind
I ask that His will
will be easy to find.

Every day to God,
I pray for directions
I ask Him to give me
Spirit filled instructions.

I give Him my burden,
my worry and my care
I let Him know they are
too much for me to bear.

Every day to God,
His peace, I pray for
and He never fails . . .
to always give me more!

Listening to the Quiet ~

listening-to-the-quietness-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some days I just sit,
to the quiet, I listen
until in my soul
God’s peace settles in.

As I sit in the stillness,
I let my mind soar
to a place I can be
with the One I adore.

There we are together,
in the calming hush
and inside I can feel
His love begin to gush.

The quietness flows,
right into my heart
and from this moment
I never want us to part.

Some days I just sit,
listening to the quiet
and I realize how much . . .
on God’s peace I’m reliant!

“He maketh me to lie down

I’ve Got This Peace ~

ive-got-this-peace-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I’ve got this peace,
that I just don’t get
but, it is becoming
for me a new mind-set.

There’s a calmness,
it seems so surreal
there’s a tranquility
that feels so unreal.

There’s a quietness,
filling up my heart
there’s a gentle hush
in the fearful part.

There’s a stillness,
now inside of me
there’s a restfulness
and it’s anxiety free.

I just don’t get . . .
this calm and peace
but, I know with Jesus
it will never cease!

If Only I Could Fly ~

oh-if-i-could-fly-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, there are days,
I want to get away . . .
to fly up and over
the daily crazy fray.

There are times,
I wish I had wings
to soar high above . .
the storms life brings.

There are moments,
I want to only flee . . .
into perfect peace
to be alone with Thee.

There are periods,
in my hectic life . . .
I wish to escape
from the endless strife.

Lord, there are days,
I want to fly away
and in Your arms . . .
forever rest and stay!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 55.6

“And I said,
Oh that I had wings

for then would
I fly away,

A Perfect Getaway ~

A Perfect Get Away ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In times of trouble,
we need a hideaway
a place we can go . . .
just to get away.

We need a retreat,
a place to de-stress
we need a refuge
so we can decompress.

In times of troubles,
we need a resort
a place where we can find
some Godly support.

We need a haven,
a shelter of protection
we need a sanctuary
a place for reflection.

In times of trouble,
we need a getaway
and God provides . . .
the perfect hideaway!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:1

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

Finding Peace ~

Finding Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today I took a sail,
on a quiet, restful sea
and soon tranquility
took a hold of me.

As I gently rocked,
I became aware
this is how it will be
when I haven’t me a care.

I laid back my head,
my face was to the sun
thinking what it’ll be like
when worry, I have none.

I closed my eyes tightly,
envisioning perfect bliss
and thought to myself
this world I’ll not miss.

Today I took a sail,
if only in my mind . . .
but God showed me His peace
is right here ~ for me to find!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
