I’m Completely Convinced ~

I am convinced I belong to God,
that nothing can separate us
I am sure and I am confident . . .
and so in Him I put all my trust.

Storms may toss and blow my way,
but I will not be swept out to sea
for I am sure and I am confident . . .
through each one God is with me.

There’s nothing man can say,
to break God’s and my alliance
I am sure and I am confident . . .
for on Him I put my full reliance.

The earth may shake and quiver,
yet my faith in God will stand
for I am sure and I am confident . . .
nothing can snatch me out of His hand.

I am convinced I belong to God,
my victory is in Christ alone
I am sure and I am confident . . .
one day He will take me home!

Romans 8:38-39


“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor
life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come, Nor
height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of
God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Sticky Note From God ~04.29.20~

1 Corinthians 2:9


It Takes Work ~

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of studying.

It takes days,
months, even years
to get rid of
our doubts and fears.

It takes praying,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of Bible reading.

It takes faith,
trust and desire
for the Word of God
in us to inspire.

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes a heart . . .
opened to receiving!

~~~~~~~~

John 6:28-29

“Then said they unto him,
What shall we do,
that we might work
the works of God?

Jesus answered and said
unto them, This is
the work of God,
that ye believe
on him whom he hath sent.”

In My Golden Years ~

in-my-golden-years-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

In my golden years,
my faith is mightier
my hope grows steadier
my trust gets sturdier.

The body gets weaker,
the mind is foggier
the memory grows poorer
the recollection’s fewer.

My beliefs root deeper,
my strength gets stronger
my doubts move further
my fears get lesser.

The eyes get dimmer,
the knees are creakier
the spine gets stiffer
the muscles softer.

God gets bigger,
the world gets smaller
the Lord grows nearer
my worries calmer.

In my golden years,
I am more aware . . .
God’s still concerned
about my welfare!

“Cast me not off
in the time of old age;
forsake me not when
my strength faileth.”

A Thread of Faith ~

by-believing CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It only takes a thread of faith,
to keep you from unraveling
it only takes one strand of trust
so God can do some dazzling.

It only takes one single cord,
to have patience in all things
it only takes a fiber of hope
to see the strength God brings.

It only takes a wisp of conviction,
to believe in what you can’t see
it only takes a little string of truth
to see how great God can be.

It only takes a remnant of belief,
and a willingness to pray
it only takes one heartfelt cry
for God to save the day.

It only takes a thread of faith,
to weave your salvation story
it only takes one strand of trust
for God to have all the glory!

Joshua 2:18
King James Version

“Behold, when we come
into the land,

thou shalt bind
this line of scarlet thread

in the window which
thou didst let us down by:

Thankful for What ~

In Everything used with permission IBible Verses
It’s easy to be thankful,
when things are going well
when we are trouble-free
no fears on which to dwell.

But, when burdens become,
crushing and all-consuming
it’s hard to show gratitude
when stress is ever-looming.

It’s difficult to say thank you,
in the middle of our strife
it’s not easy to be grateful
for the trials in this life.

How can we be thankful,
in every single thing
rejoicing in the hardships
that living often brings?

It takes a heart of faith,
an unwavering trust
it take a soul that knows
being prayerful is a must!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
King James Version

“Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Why Do I Believe?

Stop Doubting by Thomas Roberts free photo #17827

When people ask me,
why I believe the way I do
why in God I still trust
after all I have been through?

I take my time to respond,
with meekness I explain . . .
it wasn’t God who went away
it was I, who did not remain.

God has never left my side,
He has always been with me
it was I, who became blind
who chose His will not to see.

It was I, who took the chance,
who wandered off the path
it was I, who stopped believing
sin still stirred up His wrath.

God has never failed me,
He has waited for me patiently
it was I, who broke His heart
so very shamelessly.

It was I, who began to doubt,
who needed something more
it was I, who went out looking
behind every tempting door.

God’s grace has covered me,
His mercy awaited my return
it was I, who needed reminding
for my sins, in hell I’d burn.

Lord, when people ask me,
why I believe the way, I do . . .
I tell them that temptation’s door
kept leading me back to You.

1 Peter 3:15-16
King James Version

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer
to every man that asketh you a reason
of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”
