Inside Out ~

 

Lord, You have searched my heart,
You know it inside out
You know where faith runs deep
and the potholes full of doubt.

You have looked into my mind,
You know all of its ups and downs
You know the ruts of fear
and the pockets of peace around.

You have looked into my thoughts,
You know the turbulence
You know the ebbs of calm
and the waves of nervousness.

You have looked into my soul,
You know its fragile stubbornness
You know when it’s softly pliable
and when it’s stiff with faithlessness.

Lord, You have searched my heart,
my mind, thoughts and soul
and I know there’s more . . .
for You to shape and mold!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 139:23

“Search me, O God,
and know my heart:
try me, and know
my thoughts:”

Give Jesus an Earful ~

he-delivered-me-from-all-my-fears Used with permission IBible Verses

Whenever you are anxious,
nervous or fearful . . .
take it straight to the cross
give Jesus an earful.

Tell Him about your cares,
your every single worry
rest with Him for a while
do not be in a hurry.

Let Him know the reasons,
you feel like you do
speak with Him as if . . .
He’s right next to  you.

In your conversation,
hold nothing back
tell Him all about
the faith that you lack.

Tarry and stay with Him,
until you begin to feel
His peace and serenity
the calmness, to be still.

When you are anxious,
give Jesus an earful . .
for He doesn’t want you
to be worried or fearful!

and delivered me from all my fears.”

Worry Free ~

Worry Free ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I want to be all,
God wants me to be
I want to have peace
flowing inside of me.

I want to be humble,
be rid of my pride
I want a still place
for my heart to abide.

I want to be trusting,
confident and sure
I want my faith to be
fear and doubt’s cure.

I want to be thankful,
in all of these things
I want to be grateful
for what life brings.

I want to be content,
have confidence
I want to rejoice
in God’s providence.

I want to be all,
God wants me to be
I want to be anxious
and worry free!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7
King James Version

“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.”

Be Not Anxious ~

be-not-anxious CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be anxious for nothing,
let not worry rule the day
give your cares to the Lord
before you go your way.

For, Jesus promises,
through everything in prayer
you will find His rest when . . .
thanksgiving is also there.

Don’t get overly nervous,
don’t fuss and fret about
lest your anxiety will cast . . .
those tiny seeds of doubt.

For, Jesus knows you need,
Him to take away your fear
and a thankful heart will . . .
bring Him close and near.

Don’t let your anxiety,
rob you of your peace
instead let thankfulness . . .
be what you release!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6
King James Version

” Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests

be made known unto God.”

Worrywart ~ No More

dont-worry CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I use to be a worrywart,
fussed over everything
nervous about the day
the trouble it would bring.

My stomach would churn,
my heart would palpitate
the anxiety that I felt
I couldn’t communicate.

I was spiritually paralyzed,
filled with fright and dread
nothing that I could do
relived the anguish in my head.

I would fret about the future
where I’d go ~ where I’d be
a road of trepidation . . .
was all that I could see.

But then one day,
it all became so very clear
I didn’t have to worry
I had nothing more to fear.

Jesus, promised He’d provide,
my every want and need
He’d sustain and supply me
if His words ~ I would heed.

So, I put my faith into action,
trusting God for each day
giving Him my tomorrows
seeking Him first, when I pray.

I’m no longer a worrywart,
I’ve got my priorities right
for there is nothing to fear
if you see things in His light!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6.25
King James Version

“Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought for your life,
what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink;
nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.
Is not the life more than meat,
and the body than raiment?”

Clinging to My Victories ~

I'm Clinging to My Victories ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m clinging to my victories,
no matter what happens to me
I may suffer for today
but, tomorrow . . .
Jesus will set me free.

I’m clinging to my victories,
even when going through the fire
I may be downtrodden today
but, tomorrow . . .
Jesus will lift me higher.

I’m clinging to my victories,
although now my heart is fearful
I may be anxious today
but, tomorrow . . .
Jesus will make me cheerful.

I’m clinging to my victories,
as the storm continues to rage on
I may be weary today
but, tomorrow . . .
Jesus will bring the sun.

I’m clinging to my victories,
though everything’s a total loss
I may be bankrupt today
but, my debt . . .
Jesus took care of on the cross!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:57
King James Version

“But thanks be to God,
which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Not Guilty!

Saved by Jon Tomero free photo #7929

I have walked on this earth,
for many, many years . . .
I’ve stumbled and I’ve fallen
over my doubts and my fears.

Many times I have thought,
another step I could not take
and life’s troubling journey
I just did not want to make.

I struggled with the frantic pace,
I wrestled with the anxious stride
until the day, I came to realize
I was marching to my own pride.

I knew I needed deliverance,
from the course that I was on
and that is when I felt my life
to God being forever drawn.

He set me on a new path,
and saved me from the pit
He found me not guilty
and my sins, He did acquit!

King James Version

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.”

Released ~

Casting your Anxiety by Doorpost Verses used with permission

Whenever I’m anxious,
and life has me by the hem
I loosen up and I let go . . .
casting everything onto Him.

I simply sit back,
and let myself unwind
I relax in the knowledge
He’ll give me peace of mind.

Whenever I’m restless,
tense from my concerns
I call upon the Lord
till my stress He overturns.

I take a deep breath in,
then I let it all out
and before you know it
He takes away my doubt.

Whenever I’m troubled,
by my worries and cares
I take them to the Lord
in my thoughts and prayers.

I shut my eyes slowly,
and give to Him my ears
as I listen to His spirit
I’m released from my fears!

His Soldiers ~

sky-cross-romans-8-37-dc1 used with permission Darrell Creswell

Weary hearts,
anxious minds
come to Me
I’ll make you mine.

Hide Me within,
your heart today
I’ll be with you
I’ll show the way.

Tired soldiers,
fighting strong
trust in Me
I’m never wrong.

I hear your fatigued,
battle cries
I see the tears
in your eyes.

But rest assured,
the fight we will win
the day I come . . .
to put an end to sin!

Be Still and Rest Assured ~

Be Still and Rest Assured ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Whenever you are anxious,
turn your fears over to the Lord
give  Him all your worries
then be still and rest assured.

For, He will bring you comfort,
when you learn to lean on Him
He will send His light to shine
and things will be less grim.

Whenever you are uncertain,
give Jesus your insecurity
He’ll understand your doubt
and bring to you His clarity.

For, great is His loving kindness,
He brings rest to the weary soul
and when you need a friend
He’s always ready to console .

Whenever you are anxious,
don’t keep Jesus at arm’s length
draw Him close and near
so you may find His strength!

Resist The Devil

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Feeling tempted,
can’t keep the devil at bay
caught up in his lure
as you go about your day?

Can’t fight against,
all the lusts in the world
can’t put off the suggestions
the devil loves to hurl?

Is pride tripping you up,
are his lies chasing after you
does the devil entice you
to do the things that you do?

Getting overly anxious,
filling up with dread and fear
feeling the burden
of not having Jesus near?

Well, don’ you give up,
don’t let that old devil win
lest you go about
in the stench of your sin.

Submit your life to God,
and follow His ways
resist the devil and he’ll flee
from the rest of your days!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:7
King James Version

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist
the devil, and he will flee from you.”
