Faith And Assurance ~

Faith and assurance,
go hand in hand . . .
you can’t just have one
if your hope is to stand.

For faith without sureness,
is like a boat with a hole
allowing fear and doubt
to sink into your soul.

Assurance and Faith,
go side by side . .
you can’t just have one
if you want to abide.

For assurance without trust,
is like a bird without a nest
keeping us from finding
God’s true peace and rest.

Faith and assurance,
fit just like a glove
for they’re both a gift
from heaven above!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 10:22

“Let us draw near with
a true heart in full
assurance of faith,
having our hearts sprinkled
from an evil conscience,
and our bodies washed
with pure water.”

A Heart Quiet ~

A heart quiet,
is one trusting
one that doesn’t go
around fretting.

For, in God,
it is confident
because it knows
He is competent.

A heart quiet,
is one yielding
one that knows
it’s not worth worrying.

For in God,
it rests assured
it knows in Him
its peace is secured.

A heart quite,
is a heart that knows
God is with it
where ever it goes!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 30:15

“For thus saith the Lord God,
the Holy One of Israel;
In returning and rest
shall ye be saved;
in quietness and in
confidence shall be
your strength:
and ye would not.”

The Path of Truth ~

Lord, today I need
to know what is Your will
and until You show me . . .
I’ll just wait and be still.

I need Your guidance,
for the road ahead
I need the assurance
I will be Spirit lead.

Lord, today I need,
to heed what You say
so on the path of truth
I will be able to stay.

I need to learn to wait,
for the right directions
I need You to teach me
how to pay attention.

Lord, today I need to know,
what You’d have me to do
for I don’t want to walk . . .
down this road without You!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:5

“Lead me in thy truth,
and teach me: for thou art
the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day”

Blessings of Assurance ~

Blessings of Assurance ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each day in my Bible,
I am blessed to read
of every assurance
that I will ever need.

I have a warranty,
to God’s mercy and grace
I have evidence
one day I’ll see His face.

I have a verification,
of life eternally
I have the Holy Spirit
dwelling internally.

I have confidence,
God hears all my prayers
I have affirmation
Jesus takes my cares.

I have a guarantee,
temptation I can flee
I have a crown of life
that is awaiting me.

I have a promise,
death I will not fear
I have an insurance
Jesus is always near.

I have a sureness,
I’ll not hunger or thirst
I have the authority
to always seek God first.

I have a confirmation,
I am God’s child
I have a surety
in Jesus I’m reconciled.

Each time I read my Bible,
there are blessings of assurance
to which I’ll hold tight . . .
until Jesus’ reappearance!

“And we desire that every one

My Portion ~

The Lord is My Portion ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Lord is my portion,
He is my all and all
He satisfies my inner needs
when on His name I call.

I lack not one good thing,
when to Him I injure
He grants my spiritual wants
for He is my faith supplier.

The Lord is my contentment,
He is my true happiness
He gives my heart and soul
assurance, hope and gladness.

I know I can count on Him,
to make my cup full . . .
everything else is just fluff
when push comes to pull.

The Lord is my portion,
on His mercy I can rely
these are His promises
in my life, I daily apply!

Care Casting ~

Casting In ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My cares I’m casting,
with all sureness
giving them to the Lord
with this assurance.

That all of my concerns,
He will take from me
from my every worry
He will set me free.

With confidence,
I’m placing all my trust
onto the One
who truly loves us.

My every illness,
all my pain and grief
I’m letting Jesus have
so I may have relief.

My cares I am casting,
onto Jesus with sureness
because He has given me
His caring assurance!

The Power of Prayer ~

Prayer is Powerful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s power in prayer,
there is a mighty force
whenever we go to
the Almighty source.

There’s hope in prayer,
it’s our defense and shield
when to God our hearts
we give to Him and yield.

There’s conviction in prayer,
it’s our eternal assurance
it helps us to run the race
with patience and endurance.

There’s joy in prayer,
it’s the means to happiness
for when we trust God
it brings His heart gladness.

There’s power in prayer,
just go to the Almighty source
there’s strength and greatness
behind His mighty force!

Mark 11:24
King James Version

“Therefore I say unto you,
What things soever ye desire, when ye pray,
believe that ye receive them,
and ye shall have them.”

Oh, The Precious Blood ~

Oh, The Precious Blood  ~ CHRISTian Poetry by deborah ann

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
grace flowing from His brow
seeps with our salvation
God’s atonement for us now.

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
love pouring from His heart
trickles of blessed assurance
only God’s mercy can impart.

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
redemption running free
droplets of His forgiveness
reconciliation for you and me.

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
justification pours from within
each drip that is brought forth
covers each and every sin

Oh, the precious blood of Jesus,
God’s spotless Lamb of grace
gave His life so we may live
if His sacrifice ~ we’d embrace!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:9
King James Version

“Much more then, being now justified by his blood,
we shall be saved from wrath through him.”

Trusting In Jesus ~

I Will Put My Trust used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Put your trust in Jesus,
you, He will not disappoint
place your faith in Jesus
make Him your vantage point.

He will give you the insight,
to discern the truth from lies
and you will see all things
in and through His eyes.

Trust not in mankind,
or the deceit that they tell
place not your confidence
in the peace, they try to sell.

Place no trust in the world,
do not think things will bring
joy and happiness
to worldly riches do not cling.

Do not trust even yourself,
let not pride get in the way
from the righteous path
do not deviate or stray.

Place your assurance in Jesus,
keep His Word in you alive
do not think for one minute
without Him, you’d survive.

Put your trust in Jesus,
hold onto Him, ever tight
place your faith in Jesus
never let Him out of your sight!

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

Psalm 40:4
King James Version

“Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust,
and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.”

The Bridge ~

faith_1024-500x500

There is a bridge you can take,
it leads to water’s living . . .
it’s there you’ll find peace
merciful and forgiving.

Over trials and tribulations,
it will take you across
the span of His loving hands
will lead you to the cross.

It is a bridge of assurance,
trouble waters will not last
and for you He has a future
much better than the past.

The hardships in this life,
will take faith to get through
and Jesus is the bridge linking
His Father right to you!

Glory to My Lord ~

Glory To My Lord ~ CHRISTIan poetry by deborah ann

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
for His awesome grace
mercy He has given me
despite my own disgrace.

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
for abundant is His love
generously He grants me
blessings from above.

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
for His mercifulness to me
assurance I didn’t work for
but, given to me for free.

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
for His riches do exceed
treasures I don’t deserve
yet, meet my every need.

Oh, Glory to my Lord,
I hail and praise His name
today, tomorrow, forever . . .
His love remains the same!

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!

In Your Light ~

In Your LIght ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord . . .

As the moon beams fade,
along with the darken night
I ask You to walk with me
and lead me in Your light.

In the morning’s early luster,
amidst it’s golden hue
I rise up with the sun
and give my day to You.

While the air is yet cool,
before the dew sets in
I cover myself in Your love
till I feel Your warmth within.

Before the birds first song,
while all is calm and still
I meditate on Your Word . . .
and learn for me Your will.

When the day dawns on me,
lit by the Spirit’s glow
I rest assured in knowing
You’ll be with me as I go!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:3
King James Version

“My voice shalt thou hear
in the morning,
O Lord; in the morning
will I direct
my prayer
unto thee, and will look up.”

Our Eternal Assurance ~

Your Love Never Fails ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s love never fails,
it never fades or pales
that is our assurance
our eternal insurance.

Our soul He’ll protect,
He promises to perfect
our mind and our heart
when hope we impart.

He’s the light in our lamp,
redemption’s seal and stamp
the source of our power
no matter the day or hour.

He is the grace in our cup,
when on His Word we sup
our faith in Him will grow
the more about Him we know.

God is the Father, the Son
the Holy Spirit ~ makes one
to us that is His assurance
to all, His eternal insurance!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 1:5
King James Version

“For our gospel came not unto you in word only,
but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost,
and in much assurance; as ye know what manner
of men we were among you for your sake.

Sweet Assurance ~

Father, I give you my burdens,
take with them my worries too
give to me Your sweet assurance
as I give all my problems to You.

Father, You know my every care,
each anxious beat of my heart
give to me Your peaceful Spirit
on my soul tender mercy impart.

Father, You promise to protect me,
to give me a place to find rest
give to me Your Spirit’s filling
so that I may be forever blessed.

Father, I give to you all my fears,
take with them my doubts too
give to me Your sweet assurance
for I trust and believe in You!

you for your sake.
