Anxiety’s Trap ~

I felt the trap,
of anxiety
set a snare
on my sanity.

The conditions,
were just ripe
that at my heart
it took a swipe.

I took the bait,
ran away with it
then fell into
a nervous snit.

It took some time,
for me to see
this isn’t where
God wants me.

So I sent my own trap,
for anxiety . . .
now with God’s love
fear had no priority!

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made
perfect in love.

If Perfect Love ~

if-perfect-love-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If perfect love,
casts out all fear
then why do we feel
danger is always near?

If perfect love,
dispels the dread
then why do we feel
despair in our head?

If perfect love,
makes us unafraid
then why do we feel
so ever dismayed?

If perfect love,
has not a worry
then why do we feel
our cares we must carry?

If perfect love,
does what it says it can do
then why don’t we Jesus . . .
just give our fears to You?

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth

hath torment. He that

perfect in love.”

There He Is ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Where Isn't God - IBible Verse

There He is . . .
I knew He’d be there for me
I knew if I called out to Him
there He, would surely be.

There He is . . .
His arms are open wide
calling me to come to Him
to put faith, in my stride.

There He is . . .
yes, Jesus is right here
reaching out His hands
beckoning, for me to near.

There He is . . .
calling out to me, my name
letting me know my fears
His perfect love will tame.

There He is . . .
do you see Jesus too?
All you have to do is look
He is waiting there for you!

But perfect love drives out fear,
because fear has to do with punishment.
The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

Perfect Love ~

Gods Perfect Love by Hillary Grantham free photo #10676

Love casts out all fear,
it removes every doubt
for Love that is perfect
takes all the worry out.

Love heals the heart,
it soaks up the pain
for Love that is perfect
is not given out in vain.

Love mends the mind,
it gives everlasting hope
for Love that is perfect
helps the soul to cope.

Love restores faith,
removes all the stress
for Love that is perfect
can and will only bless.

Love give us power,
it keeps us secure
for God’s love is perfect
it’s our eternal future!

Fear Is Your Enemy ~

 

Fear Is Your Enemy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Fear leaves you in the dark,
like a room without light
it will rob you of your peace
like a thief in the night.

Fear will strike you down,
like a thunderbolt
it will fill you with dread
like a lightning clapping volt.

Fear takes away your freedom,
just like a jailer’s key
it’ll scare and frighten you
like the anger of the sea.

Fear steals your joy,
like a runner at first base
it will cause you to go awry
like an astronaut lost in space.

Fear is your spirit’s enemy,
it will make your faith weak
but God will cast it out of you
when perfect love you seek!

~~~~~~~~~

King James Version

” There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth

is not made perfect in love.
