Draw To God Near ~

When my heart pounds,
with anxiety and fear
it only calms down . .
as I draw to God near.

For the closer I get,
to where He is . . .
I am reminded
my dread is all His.

When my nerves jitter,
with doubt and worry
they only ease up . . .
when with God I tarry.

For the more time,
with Him I spend
I can see His light
just around the bend.

When my I am feeling,
shaky and dismayed
to God I close in . . .
so not to be afraid!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea, I will uphold
thee with the right hand
of my righteousness.

When Troubles Come ~

When troubles arrive,
as they come for you
go to God first . . .
and ask Him what to do.

For He is our helper,
on whom we can rely
for divine guidance
to use and apply.

When troubles create,
pressure from within
before anxiety and fear
can even set in.

Run into the High Tower,
God will meet you there
to relieve you from
all your worry and care.

When troubles approach
as they pursue you . . .
make sure you ask God
what He’d have you to do!

~~~~~~~~

John 16:33

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.”

John 14:16-17

And I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide
with you for ever;

Lacking Peace ~

Is there a piece,
of your peace missing
are you hanging onto
anxious, nervous living?

Well perfect love,
will cast out all fear
so when full of dread
just draw Jesus near.

Is there a chunk,
of your serenity absent
is your sense of calm
but a fragment?

Well fix your thoughts,
on the things above
and you will be filled
with His perfect love.

Is there a piece,
of your peace lacking
well, give to God all that is . . .
to you nerve-wracking!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Isaiah 26:3

Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.

Prayer ~

Prayer covers,
our needs
our souls
it feeds.

It calms,
our conflicts
our unrest
it evicts.

Prayer takes,
our fears
our anxiety
it clears.

It relieves,
our concerns
our doubt
it upturns.

Prayer reassures,
our hearts
our minds
peace it imparts!

Seasons Of Fainting ~

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of fainting . . .
when worldly catastrophes
leave us anxiously panting.

For all around us we see,
disorder of every kind
messing with the peace
in our heart and mind.

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of weariness . . .
when earthly calamities
fill us with restlessness.

For every where we turn,
we see the destruction
that evilness brings
when under its seduction.

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of trepidation . . .
but we who believe in Jesus
are free of apprehension!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 24:10

If thou faint in the day
of adversity,
thy strength is small.

John 16:33

These things I have spoken
unto you, that in me ye might
have peace. In the world ye
shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

Be Joyful and Prayerful ~

Be joyful in hope,
be faithful in prayer
don’t forget to give . . .
Jesus your daily care.

For to be joyful,
when troubles increase
will make your anxiety
decline and decrease.

Be patient in affliction,
be steadfast and firm
don’t forget to give . . .
Jesus all your concern.

For to be diligent,
when problems arise
will help you to keep
your eyes on the prize.

Be joyful and prayerful,
be so ever patient too

Fraught With Worry ~

Often we find our hearts,
are fraught with worry
our thoughts turn into . . .
a nervous, swirling flurry.

We fret and we fuss,
over what we can’t control
until fear becomes . . .
embedded into our soul.

Often we find our minds,
are overwhelmed by dread
our thinking gets clouded . . .
by the anxiety in our head.

We get so caught up in,
our fearful trepidation
until fear’s spiny fingers . . .
takes over our circulation.

Often we find our hearts,
letting worry into our mind
keeping us from God’s peace
to discover or to find!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.

Sticky Note to God ~08.13.20~

Proverbs 12:25


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.

Restless No More ~

When your worries,
leave you restless
and your fears
render you useless.

That’s when you need,
to ask God to free you
from the concerns
that you’re enslaved to.

When your anxieties,
leave you jittery
and your emotions
cause you misery.

That’s when you need,
to ask Jesus to impart
the calm only He can
bring into your heart.

When your fears and cares,
have you feeling edgy
let the peace of Jesus . . .
make your nerves steady!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:28-30

Come unto me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you,
and learn of me; for I am meek
and lowly in heart: and ye
shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.

Everyone Has Something ~

Everyone has something,
messing up their day
everyone has new storms
freshly blowing their way.

Everyone has problems,
throwing them off course
everyone has troubles
coming at them full force.

Everyone has dilemmas,
they need to address
everyone has anxieties
causing them to stress.

Everyone has worries,
tossing them about
everyone has concerns
they need to work out.

But, we who have Jesus,
needn’t be aghast . . .
for onto Him our cares
we can freely broadcast!

Troubles Abounding ~

In this fallen world . . .
there’ll be troubles abounding
worries and cares
conceptually confounding.

But, Jesus said we’re not,
to fret or to despair
but to hand over to Him
our every single care.

Each day there’s enough,
troubles of its own
packed full of anxiety
from the things unknown.

But, Jesus insisted,
we are not to dread
nor are we to panic
but to trust Him instead.

In this fallen world,
we’ll have plenty of distress
but, Jesus makes it clear
over them we needn’t obsess!

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.

May You Be At Peace ~

May you be at peace,
all times, in every way
may you take heart knowing
God sends new mercies each day.

May you be anxious for naught,
nor about one single thing
may you feel the calming
only a Savior can bring.

May your mind be fixed,
on a God worth trusting
may you find your tranquility
in things everlasting.

May you lie down and sleep,
with dreams of green pastures
may you find peace
as your heart Jesus captures!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 3:16

“Now the Lord of peace himself
give you peace always by all means.
The Lord be with you all.

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

~~~~~~~

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.”

Hopefully, Joyful ~

Lord, once again
You proved to be faithful
and once again to You
I am truly grateful.

For, You have taught me,
how to cast my cares
onto You with my pleas
and my thankful prayers.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be trusting
and to my aide today
You faithfully came rushing.

You assured me,
for me You’d be here
to ease all my anxiety
and alleviate my fear.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be loyal
tis why today . . .
I’m hopefully, joyful!

Get a Grip on Fear ~

Whenever fear begins,
messing with my head
when it fills up my heart
with anxiety and dread.

It’s when I go to Jesus,
to still the storm inside
soon the waves of fear
calmly start to subside.

Whenever fear grips me,
squeezing my very soul
when with it I battle
to take back control.

It’s when I go to Jesus,
for that stillness exceeding
soon the trembling I feel
starts peacefully receding.

Whenever fear creeps in,
just as it starts to invade
it’s when I go to Jesus . . .
for He makes me not afraid!

~~~~~~

Luke 8:23-25

“But as they sailed he fell asleep:
and there came down a storm of wind
on the lake; and they were filled
with water, and were in jeopardy.

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.

And he said unto them,
Where is your faith?
And they being afraid wondered,
saying one to another,
What manner of man is this!
for he commandeth even the
winds and water, and they obey him.”

Hold On ~

Ship Wrecked ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I once was like a ship,
you could call me a wreck
when storms came my way
I’d hit hard on the deck.

I could not ride out,
the worries they brought
fear and apprehension
left me anxious and fraught.

Under the harsh conditions,
I would fold under the pressure
so severe were my nerves
no turbulence could I weather.

But, now I don’t sweat,
the turmoil life brings
for I’ve learned to trust Jesus
in and for all things.

I once was a wreck,
just like a sinking ship . . .
but now I hold onto my faith
so overboard I won’t flip!

~~~~~~~~~

which some having put away concerning

Taking It To Jesus ~

God_Wants_To_Talk_To_You free photo

Whenever I’m unhappy,
feeling down and out
I take my thoughts to Jesus
talk to Him about my doubt.

I tell Him the way is hard,
things haven’t been so easy
my heart’s frequently broken
my stomach is often queasy.

I let Him know of my cares,
the worries on my mind
how I seem to bump into . . .
difficulties of every kind.

But, then He reminds me,
He came to give me peace
though it does not mean
my troubles will ever cease.

As I turn over in my mind,
my worries and my cares
they just seem to vanish . . .
the more with Jesus I share!

~~~~~~

When Life Hurts ~

When Life Hurts ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When life hurts,
and you ache inside
ask God for His peace
til the pain subsides.

For, He understands,
the heart that cries
and will empathize
with your fervent sighs.

When you tell God about,
your dread and  fears
He will send His joy
to wipe away your tears.

For, your every prayer,
goes right into His ear
there is not one
He isn’t willing to hear.

When life hurts,
give Jesus your pain
then pray for His peace
in your heart to come reign!
