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
of the living.”

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!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:2

“I will say of the Lord,
He is my refuge and my
fortress: my God;
in him will I trust.”

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,

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!

You are the Anchor

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!

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

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!

~~~~~~~

“And I said,
Oh that I had wings

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!

~~~~~~

Above the Clouds ~

Above the Clouds ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Above the clouds,
I wish to be . . .
beyond the storms
awaiting me.

Higher places,
I wish to go . . .
before the gales
start to blow.

Beyond the rain,
I wish to fly . . .
past the gloom
rolling by.

Up and over,
I wish to soar . . .
high above
life’s daily roar.

Above the clouds,
Lord, I wish to be . . .
to a place of rest
right next to Thee!

Blissfulness ~

Blissfulness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is a place of calm,
a spot where all can find
peace and tranquility
to fill the heart and mind.

You won’t have to travel,
for it isn’t very far
in fact you can reach it
from right where you are.

Just close off the world,
shut down its inference
then open up yourself
to the Spirit’s influence.

Let Him flood your soul,
with His peacefulness
so He can fill your mind
with joy and gratefulness.

Once you feel it flow,
your heart will begin to sing
of the future blissfulness
Jesus, is going to bring!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“For the kingdom of God

May Peace Rule Your Heart ~

 ~ His Perfect Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

May the peace of God,
rule deep in your heart
may onto your very soul
tranquility it impart.

May the peace of God,
be a treasured possession
may it transform you
with its purification.

May the peace of God,
be your daily prayer
may it give you power
over your every care.

May the peace of God,
make you a peace-maker
may it turn you into . . .
someone’s care-taker.

May the peace of God,
be your first priority
may into His hands
you cast your anxiety.

May the peace of God,
in your heart reign
may you give to Him
all of your pain!

Understanding God’s Peace ~

A Heart Full of Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is a peace in my heart,
surpassing my understanding
but every day I can feel . . .
it growing and expanding.

It is a gift Jesus gave me,
the day I came to believe
and the closer I get to Him
the more of it I receive.

It’s not the kind of peace I feel,
when everything is going well
but I sense it’s from knowing
where the Holy Spirit dwells.

It’s a peace void of bitterness,
resentment and hostility
this calmness that I feel . . .
has no room for animosity.

There is a peace in my heart,
giving me understanding . . .
and the more I seek God’s will
the more it keeps expanding!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,

To Know God’s Peace ~

To Know God's Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to know the peace of God,
to slip to sleep upon its crest
to wade into its soft caress
and find my perfect rest.

To wait for the calming relief,
from the years of eroding pain
to find its ebbing tranquility
releasing all my earthly strain.

Oh, to calm the rushing roar,
that rages through my mind
peace asleep upon the shore
waves to me to come and find.

Peace, peace why do you flee,
from the head on which I lie
flood me with your quietness
abide with me until I die.

Oh, how I long to obtain,
a stillness – too still to hear
and then, oh then, my Lord . . .
I’ll be kept safe and near!

~~~~~

Psalm 4:8

“I will both lay me down in peace,

only makest me dwell in safety.”

Where There is Peace ~

Where There Is Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Where there is peace,
there is thanksgiving
where there is praise
there is holy living.

Where there is peace,
there is joyfulness
where there is trust
there is cheerfulness.

Where there is peace,
there is anticipation
where there is hope
there is salvation.

Where there is peace,
there is reliance
where there is faith
there is guidance.

Where there is peace,
there is thanksgiving
where there is devotion
there is worshiping!

~~~~~~~

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.”

Let God’s Peace Repair ~

 Let God's Peace Repair ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Do not be anxious,
do not let worry eat away
rather let the love of Jesus
bring calm to you today.

Do not be restless,
do not let fear consume you
rather in everything in prayer
ask God what you need to do.

Do not be fretful,
do not let nerves wear and tear
rather with praise and thanksgiving
give to Jesus your every care.

Do not be worried,
do not let doubt rule the day
rather with pleas and petitions
ask God to show you the way.

Do not be anxious,
do not suffer from despair
rather into your heart and mind
let God’s peace restore and repair!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

The Promises of Peace ~

 ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Perfect Peace - IBible Verse

God’s promises of peace,
are written throughout the Bible
within the pages are woven
promises of renewal and revival.

He promises to comfort us,
in times of suffering and sickness
when hardships come our way
He sends promises of stillness.

He promises to give us strength,
in times of sorrow and grief
when life pressures build up
He gives the promise of relief.

God promises of peace,
surpasses our comprehension
guarding our hearts and minds
to calm all our apprehension.

With the promise of forgiveness,
comes peace and security
that in heaven with Jesus
we will spend all of eternity.

He promises us perfect peace,
when we fix our eyes . . .
on the One who promises us
all our needs, He will supply!

On The Breeze of Serenity ~

Today's Weather Report ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Creation Swap

Today the weathers’ calm,
the skies are blue and clear
the wind is all but absent
I have not me a single fear.

The day looks promising,
the sun will be out to warm
by all present indications
I’ll not encounter a storm.

It’s a day for me to have,
some peaceful tranquility
a day for me to find rest
on the breeze of serenity.

I love days like these,
when everything is still . . .
it’s the perfect time to seek
to find for me, God’s will.

Tomorrow there may come,
a storm straight for me
but, from today’s reflections
it will be Jesus whom I see!

Come Unto Me ~

 Come To Me by Marian Trinidad free photo

Come unto Me, My child . . .
such sweet music to my ears
Come unto Me, Jesus calls . . .
O’ how these words, I love to hear.

Come unto Me, My daughter . . .
such tenderness, Jesus has for me
Come unto Me, His words are like . . .
sweet nectar to a honeybee.

Come unto Me, My beloved  . . .
such comfort in three little words
Come unto Me, Jesus whispers . . .
O’ the sweetest phrase, I’ve ever heard.

Come unto Me, My little one . . .
such compassion, hope and love
Come unto Me, Jesus tells me . . .
sweet syllables falling from above.

Come unto Me, My child,
and I will give you rest . . .
Come unto Me, Jesus calls
O’ how my soul, these words bless!

Till He Comes ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Peace - IBible Verses

Till for me ~ He comes,
I ‘ve nothing to fear
for His peace is always . . .
close and ever near.

Till for me ~ He comes,
afraid, I will not be
for His love is always . . .
right here, inside of me.

Till for me ~ He comes,
anxiety won’t have its way
for His grace is always . . .
with me,  both night and day.

Till for me ~ He comes,
fainthearted, I will not be
for His Spirit is always . . .
power and strength to me!

Finding Peace ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Perfect Peace - IBible Verse

Peace without prayer,
is just impossible
for prayer makes
all things possible.

Peace without trust,
cannot be there
for trust gives Jesus
our every care.

Peace without hope,
is not able to save
for without hope
there’s only the grave.

Peace without faith,
can’t bring calmness
for faith by itself
can’t bring stillness.

Peace without praise,
won’t make us peaceful
for without praise . . .
we can’t be grateful!
