Lord, Give My Faith A Backbone ~

Lord, give my faith a backbone,
robust, sturdy and strong
give my spirit the braveness
to last my whole life long.

Lord, help me not to be,
cowardly and spineless
so for You I can be . . .
courageous and fearless.

Lord, give my trust a framework,
rugged, durable and resilient
give my spirit the boldness
to go for You the distant.

Lord, help me not to be,
fainthearted and gutless
so for You I can be . . .
a light for Your justness.

Lord, give me a backbone,
make my faith seamless
so that my trust in You
can remain effortless!

~~~~~~~~~~

Joshua 1:9

“Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid,
neither be thou dismayed:
for the Lord thy God is with thee
whithersoever thou goest.

Leap of Faith ~

Whenever you hit,
that eventual wall
remember on Jesus
you can always call.

He will help get you,
up and over it
with the strength
of the Holy Spirit.

Whenever you hit,
that awaiting obstacle
don’t forget with Jesus
nothing is impossible.

He will help you to take,
faith’s boundless leap
and on you His power
He will endlessly heap.

Whenever you hit,
that unexpected barricade
remember with Jesus
you need not be dismayed!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:29

“For by thee I have run
through a troop;
and by my God have
I leaped over a wall.”

When Feeling Humdrum ~

When you feel discouraged,
and your faith feels dull
before hopelessness
sinks into your skull.

Fill your mind with Jesus,
all that He did for you
and you’ll see helplessness
from another point of view.

When you feel disheartened,
and you faith feels drab
before disenchantment
your heart from God’s grabs.

Fill your mind with Jesus,
let all His words sink in
and you’ll see desperation
differently though Him.

When your faith feels blah,
and you’re feeling humdrum
fill you mind with Jesus . . .
for a hopeful outcome!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:13

“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind,
be sober, and hope to the end for the grace
that is to be brought unto you at the revelation
of Jesus Christ;”

Don’t Be Dismayed ~

When in a situation,
that has you afraid
trust God is with you
so not to be dismayed.

wait and be still
so not to be weary.

You Can Rest Assured ~

When into the unknown,
God has you to go
you can rest assured . . .
a way He will show.

For, before you He’s gone,
and a path He has paved
so there’s no need for you
to be fearful or afraid.

When into the uncharted,
God has you to journey
you can rest assured . . .
there’s no need to worry.

For, He has walked,
for you down that road
and has already carried
for you, your heavy load.

When into the uncharted,
or be it the unknown
you can rest assured . . .
you will not be alone!

~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 31:8

“And the Lord, he it is that doth
go before thee; he will be with thee,
he will not fail thee,
neither forsake thee:
fear not, neither be dismayed.”

Sticky Note to God 01.09.18


I Do Not Doubt ~

My God has designs,
He will figure this out
He has a plan for me
in this I do not doubt.

Though I’m concerned,
He knows just what to do
and so my Father . . .
in faith I leave this with You.

My God keeps His promises,
He is forever merciful
everything He does
is perfectly purposeful.

Though I may be worried,
I am not afraid
for I know with God
I’m not to be dismayed.

My God is good,
He’s always fair and just
that is why in Him . . .
I choose to place my trust!

~~~~~

Psalm 138:8

“The Lord will perfect
that which concerneth me:
thy mercy, O Lord,
endureth for ever:
forsake not the works
of thine own hands.”

Fear Naught ~

fear-naught-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Throughout the Bible,
we’re told not to fear
nor to be dismayed
for God is always near.

We’re told not to be,
fearful or discouraged
that in the Lord Himself
to always be encouraged.

We’re told not to worry,
God will not fail us
no matter what man does
in Him to always trust.

We’re told not to tremble,
nor to be faint-hearted
we’re told He will finish
whatever He has started

We’re told to our prayers,
God will bend His ear
that we needn’t doubt
our pleas He won’t hear.

We’re told perfect love,
casts out every fear . . .
that God will not forsake
but to Him, keep us near!

~~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 31:6

“Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not, nor be afraid of them:
for the Lord thy God, he it is
that doth go with thee; he will
not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

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
out fear: because fear
hath torment. He that
feareth is not made
perfect in love.”

Victory Over Fear ~

If We're Not to be Fearful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
If we’re not to be fearful,
if we’re not to be afraid
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel overwhelmingly dismayed?

If we’re not to despair,
if we’re not to be weak
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel so hopelessly bleak?

If we’re not to be concerned,
if we’re not to worry about today
then why do we sometimes . .
feel so helpless anyway?

If we’re not to be frightened,
if we’re not to have a single care
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel so emotionally threadbare?

If we’re not to be fearful,
if we’re not to be dismayed
then why are we not trembling . . .
with joy, instead of being 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.”

Be Not Dismayed ~

Be Not Dismayed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Wherever you go,
God is with you
whatever you do
He is there too.

You can’t see Him,
but He sees you
He knows the way
for you to pursue.

Whatever you fear,
God will ease it
whatever you dread
God will conquer it.

He’ll impart strength,
when you are weak
He’ll pass on courage
when you are meek.

So, be not fearful,
neither be afraid
with God we need not . . .
ever be dismayed!

~~~~~

Joshua 1:9

“Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid,
neither be thou dismayed:
for the Lord thy God is with thee
whithersoever thou goest.”
