Wait-Training ~

Wait-training,
we all need to go through
it’s something . . .
we must to learn to do.

For, God wants to teach us,
how on Him to rely
and to trust Him when
He’s got us on standby.

It will take patience,
and a lot of practice
for wait-training requires
us to be proactive.

For, God wants to show us,
His timing is the best
through He’s got us waiting
we can still be at rest.

Wait-training,
takes a lot of fortitude
for it takes strength to have
a surrendered attitude!

Psalms 27:14

“Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait,
I say, on the Lord.”

The Waiting Season ~

When God takes His time,
He always has a just reason
for, a lot of growing is done
while in the waiting season.

For, as we start to anticipate,
the answer to our prayer
God begins to show us
why not all things are fair.

When God takes His time,
at getting back to us
it for us is not the time
to lose our faith and trust.

For, He wants us to believe,
with all our heart and soul
how everything is always
in His infinite control.

When God takes His time,
it’s up to us to keep praying
for good things happen to . . .
those who can bear, the waiting!

unto them that
wait for him,

that seeketh him.”

Stillness In The Storms ~

stillness-in-the-storm-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The Lord wants us,
in the storm to be still
He wants us to know
for us, this is His will.

He wants us to remain,
quiet on the inside
when every thing else
is troubled on the outside.

He wants us to know,
the battle is His to fight
He wants us to seek
the refuge of His might.

He wants us to have,
peace and tranquility
when all else around us
is full of anxiety.

The Lord wants us,
to have a calm soul
He wants us to know
He’s the One in control!

Waiting On God ~

Waiting on God,
is liberating . . .
it is strengthening
and hope generating.

It is freeing,
this God waiting
it is entrusting
and faith activating.

Waiting on God,
is encouraging
it is confidence
and belief stimulating.

It is relieving,
this God waiting
it is anxiety
and fear sparing.

Waiting on God,
is time well spent
for the answers are . . .
always heaven-sent!

Be Still and Know ~

Be Still  and Know ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be still and know,
I am the One
who will finish
what He begun.

Be still and know,

so just rest here
in My hand.

Be still and know,
I know the way
I always do
what I say.

Be still and know,
I will not leave
believe My peace
you will receive.

Be still and know,
I am with you

In God Alone ~

In God Alone ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In God and Him alone,
my soul waits ever patiently
for my hope only comes
when I rest in Him quietly.

He is my sturdy Rock,
from which I can’t be shaken
He protects and defends me
from the attacks of Satan.

A Refuge to me He is,
a place to run and hide
His love encompasses me
from each and every side.

It is in Him I trust,
in Him my faith is hedged
for He is my soul’s salvation
with His power I am dredged.

In God and Him alone,
my soul rests expectantly
nothing can move me from . . .
waiting on Him patiently!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 62:1-2

“Truly my soul waiteth upon God:
from him cometh my salvation.”

He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.

I Know God Will ~

Waiting For You Lord ~ ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I know God can,
I believe He will
so I will wait . . .
and I’ll be still.

I know He’s able,
so I will trust
for Him to do
what He must.

It won’t do me,
one bit of good
to fear or doubt
as I once would.

For I have learned,
to sit and wait . . .
is better than taking
Satan’s worry bait.

I know God will,
I believe He can
so I’ll just leave . . .
this too, in His hand.

“My soul, wait thou only upon God;
for my expectation is from him.”

I’ve Got Courage ~

I've Got Courage ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, I’m not focusing,
in on my fear . . .
instead I’ll center on
knowing You are near.

I’m going to be strong,
instead of being fretful
I’m going to have faith
bold and not fearful.

Lord, I’m going to be calm,
instead of being anxious
in You, I’ll stay relaxed
not jittery or nervous.

I’m not going to be,
afraid of anything
instead I will trust
You with everything.

Lord, I’ve got me courage,
powerful and true . . .
for You have given me
strength to wait on You!

~~~~~~

“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage,

I Sit ~

BE STILL BY BRANDI WOOD FREE PHOTO #18120

Sometimes I sit,
in humble silence
I wait on the Lord
as I seek His guidance.

I say not a thing,
give to Him my mind
knowing His will for me
is there for me to find.

Sometimes I sit,
in quiet solitude
till I have for Him
the right attitude.

I tune the world out,
His voice, I listen for
I give Him my heart
to search and explore.

Sometimes I sit,
humbled by His love
and in silence I wait . . .
for a word from above!

When God Delays ~

When God Delays ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When God delays,
give Him your praise
He has a reason
for your waiting season.

When God holds back,
don’t let your hope slack
He still hears your cry
your needs He’ll not deny.

When God withholds desires,
your trust He requires
He’ll get you out of the pit
so, don’t give up or quit.

When you have to wait,
don’t take Satan’s bait
instead sing a new song
to keep your faith strong.

When God delays,
it a growing phase . . .
He’s working out His will
so wait and be still!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 40:1-3
King James Version

“I waited patiently for the Lord;
and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit,
out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock,
and established my goings.

And he hath put a new song in my mouth,
even praise unto our God: many shall see it,
and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.”

Those Who Wait On the Lord ~

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall ride out the storm ahead
they shall climb over any doubt
for they are Spirit lead.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall fly against the strongest gust
they shall soar above their sorrow
because in God they trust.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall run a good and faithful race
they shall not grow faint or weary
for they are filled with His grace.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall walk the talk they believe in
they shall go up against this world
and not get caught up in sin.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall arise and take their stand
they shall rise up against temptation
for they put their life in His hand.

Those who wait on the Lord,
shall conquer every doubt and fear
they shall endure to the end
for they know His Kingdom is near!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31
King James Version

“But those who wait on the Lord,
shall renew their strength:
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”

My Salvation, My Peace

My Salvation ~ My Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I wait for the stillness,
as I silently pray
I wait for the Lord
to come and enter my day.

I expect Him to draw near,
and bring me His strength
I expect Him to go with me
the full course and length.

I depend on my God,
to give me His lasting power
I depend on Him to help me
no matter the hour.

I trust in my Rock,
to defend and protect me
I trust He is my shelter
from every storm at sea.

I believe He is my Lord,
my salvation, my peace
I believe He is right here
standing within my reach.

I know that alone,
He is all that I need
I know He will guide me
and His Spirit will lead!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 62:5
King James Version

“My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.”

Wait + Trust = Calm ~

Wait + Trust = Calm ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Waiting . . .
waiting on my Lord,
praying for His will
praying even harder
learning to be still.

Trusting . . .
trusting in my Lord,
praying for an answer
praying even harder
tranquility I will conquer.

Believing . . .
believing in my Lord
praying for His peace
praying even harder
this calm will never cease.

Waiting . . .
waiting on my Lord
I think I finally got it
praying not to loose it
praying even harder
never to forget it!

Psalm 27:14
King James Version

“Wait on the Lord be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.”

No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
