We All Have Bouts ~

We all have difficulties,
some frailties, some weakness
we all have bouts . . .
of despair and bleakness.

We all have limitations,
some mental, some physical
we all have bouts . . .
of feeling measly pitiful.

We all have challenges,
some prolonged, some brief
we all have bouts . . .
of sadness and grief.

We all have deficiencies,
some flaws, some cracks
we all have bouts . . .
of feeling out of whack.

But we who have Jesus,
all things can overcome
because we know just where
our power comes from!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly
therefore will I rather glory
in my infirmities, that the
power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Joyfully Helpless ~

God has shown me,
when I’m powerless
how without His might
I’m indeed helpless.

For I have learned,
when I remain weak
more of His grace
I constantly seek.

God have proven,
my strength is worthless
how with out His power
my own is pointless.

For I have learned,
sufficient is His grace
no matter the troubles
I may have to face.

God has shown me,
to be joyful when helpless
for His grace will keep me
from becoming faithless!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I
rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.”

His Sufficient Grace ~

When I’m weak,
and oh so weary
when the road ahead
is long and dreary.

To my Lord,
I cry for more grace
so what’s before me
I can bravely face.

When I’m anxious,
feeling low and down
when my world
comes crashing down.

To my Lord,
I cry for more power
to take me through
every troubled hour.

When I’m tested,
to my very limit
when afflicted
in soul and spirit.

To my Lord,
for my grace I cry . . .
for, He has all I need
to help me get by!

By His Grace ~

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Sometimes, it’s hard to get up,
to greet a brand new day
sometimes, I think in my bed
I should cover up and stay.

Sometimes, it’s hard to put,
one foot, in front of the other
sometimes, I ask myself . . .
why should I even bother.

Sometimes, it’s hard to dress,
to wash my face and hair
sometimes, the pain I feel
is just too much to bear.

Sometimes, it’s hard to leave,
to close and lock the door
sometimes, I don’t want to go
even to my favorite store.

But, whenever I start to feel,
today ~ I just cannot do . . . .
Jesus whispers in my ear
“My grace will get you through!”

His Grace Is Sufficient ~

 

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Some people feel guilty,
some still feel the shame
for their past sin
they still take the blame.

They refuse to let go,
of their past indiscretions
so they hang on to
their former transgressions.

But, once you’re repented,
there’s no need to go back
Jesus died for all of your sins
His grace, you’ll never lack.

For, grace covers you now,
it’s covered what you’ve done
it’ll cover you all the way till
you enter into His kingdom.

So, throw away your guilt,
say goodbye to all the blame
Jesus’ gift of sufficient grace
is yours, right now to claim!

Grace Sufficient ~

grace-sufficent-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

My grace is sufficient,
I have all you’ll ever need
when your deficiencies
to Me, you willingly cede.

My strength is in you,
just give me your flaws
I’ll take you by the hand
lead you with My laws.

My power is endless,
I can do so many things
if your imperfections
to Me, you readily bring.

I delight in weakness,
find joy in your fragility
I love when you show Me
your sincere humility.

I’ll make you perfect,
just trust and rest in Me
for sufficient is My grace
I have waiting for thee!

My grace is sufficient for thee:

is made perfect in weakness.

A Plate of Grace ~

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
there will be no turkey with dressing
there will only be a plate of gratitude
served with God’s many blessings.

As a substitute for candied yams,
we are going to feast on His kindness
and taste the sweetness of His favor
as we reflect on His loving guidance.

There will be no rolls and butter,
instead, we’ll eat of the Bread of Life
and with gratitude we’ll give our thanks
that we no longer live in hopeless strife.

In the place of creamy mashed potatoes,
there will be praise piled just as high
and we will sing to Him our adoration
instead of eating pumpkin pie.

The only beverage we will drink,
will be from the one True Vine
and with sanctification on our lips
Jesus’ sacrifice will be as sweet as wine.

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
I’m not making a traditional dinner
I’ll only be serving the grace of God . . .
to those I know ~ who are still a sinner!

for thee: for my strength is made perfect in
