Focus On Jesus ~

Some days good thoughts,
are hard to keep
sometimes it’s not easy
not to let the bad ones creep.

But, those who stay,
focused on the Lord
peace in their minds
will become shored.

Some days just crush,
our spirit’s into shards
sometimes it’s impossible
our hearts to guard.

But those who remain,
on the Lord centered
peace in their souls
will keep them sheltered.

Some days tranquility,
seems unobtainable . . .
but, those who focus on Jesus
will have peace unexplainable!

Philippians 4:7

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

Engulfed In Silence ~

When my heart,
I turn over to silence
when I let it listen
for God’s guidance.

I experience a hush,
an inner stillness
as I let His Spirit
to my soul witness.

When my mind,
I turn over to calmness
when I let it reflect
on all God’s promises.

I feel the tranquility,
only He can provide
as I let His Spirit
my thoughts guide.

When my heart and mind,
are engulfed in silence
God reveals to me . . .
how His peace is timeless!

When Sleep Eludes You ~

When sleep eludes you,
on these things dwell upon
and before you know it
it will be a new dawn . . .

I will in perfect peace,
cause you to lie down
so come and rest on Me
I promise to stay around.

I will keep you safe,
all throughout the night
and when you awake
it’ll be to My light.

My ears are open,
to your every care
let Me have them now
so each one I can bear.

In My bottle I collect,
the drops of your tears
so trust Me tonight
with all of your fears.

This evening may be,
full of tears and sorrow
but, joy will come I promise
upon a new tomorrow!

Psalm 30:5

“For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour is life:
weeping may endure for a night,
but joy cometh in the morning.”

God’s Retreat of Peace ~

When you’re exhausted,
overwhelmed and weak
when all around you
appears cold and bleak.

That’s when you need,
God’s Refuge of tranquility
where from your troubles
you’ll find carefree, serenity.

When from the pressure,
you need to get out from under
when life seems to be
one blunder after another.

That’s when you need,
to take a breather
with God your Rock
and Fortress keeper.

When you are washed-out,
and in need of some rest . . .
in God’s retreat of peace
with calm, you’ll be blessed!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:5

“For in the time of trouble
he shall hide me in his pavilion:
in the secret of his tabernacle
shall he hide me; he shall
set me up upon a rock.”

Jesus, My Calm ~

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm before the storm
for bringing me peace . . .
before it starts to form.

For, I never know,
when one I’ll go through
and when I do . . .
I want it to be with You.

Lord, thank You for going,
into the storm with me
there’s no one else
with whom I’d rather be.

For, only You can still,
my fears that fall and crest
and provide for me
an anchor on which to rest.

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm after the storm
for bringing me back to . . .
a place safe and warm!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 8:24

“And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish.
Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water:
and they ceased, and there was a calm”

We all need a break,

quite, peaceful tranquility
we all need God . . .
to restore our vitality.

We all need a break,
from the daily rush
we all need God . . .
our hearts to hush.

We all need peace,
calming, silent quietness
we all need God . . .
to shush us with stillness.

We all need a break,
from the daily grind
we all need God . . .
to give us peace of mind!

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!

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

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!

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

be made known unto God.

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!

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
and are heavy laden,
