A Symphony of Praise ~

Lord, may I be thankful,
today and all year though
may praise and thanksgiving
come daily from me to You.

May I be made aware of,
all You have done for me
may I not lose my gratitude
or the love I have for Thee.

May I sing each morning,
a symphony of my praise
may I lift up my whole heart
as my gratitude I raise.

May I always remember,
the blessings You have given
may I forever be mindful
why I have been forgiven.

Lord, may I be thankful,
to You in every single way
may praise be on my lips . . .
every moment of my day!

I will praise thee, O Lord,

Need Of A Miracle ~

Need of a miracle
then trust and believe
hold out your hand
be ready to receive.

For Jesus wants to bring,
you hope and healing
from all of the afflictions
that you are feeling.

Need of a blessing,
then commit and rely
His mercy and grace
to you He will supply.

For Jesus will do,
for you the unthinkable
there’s nothing you’ve done
to Him that’s unforgivable.

Need of a miracle,
from His healing hand
then hold out yours . . .
then on your faith stand!

Luke 6:10

And looking round about

Renewed Daily ~


Each day I’m being renewed,
in the recess of my mind
as I find in my Bible
blessings of every kind.

As my faith is restored,
my trust in God improves
I can see through my life
how the Holy Spirit moves.

A new man in me He makes,
as I put off the former things
my strength is refreshed
as I grow my eagle wings.

A clean heart He bestows,
His spirit now lives in me
the joy of my salvation
I want every one to see.

Though my body is perishing,
I’m being renewed day by day
and the inward man is rejoicing
singing hallelujah and hooray!

~~~~~~~~

““For which cause we faint not;
but though our outward man
perish,yet the inward man is

God’s Gift Of Joy ~

God’s gift of joy,
is ours to embrace
for it’s brimming full . . .
of His love and grace.

Despite our troubles,
joy encourages us
to never give up
in the God we trust.

God’s gift of joy,
is such a blessing
when our troubles are
urgent and pressing.

It makes our heart,
feel better and brighter
for joy make our burdens
seem so much lighter.

God’s gift of joy,
is all of ours to choose
so give joy a try . . .
what have you to lose!

Romans 15:13

Now the God of hope fill
you with all joy and peace

Count All Your Blessings ~

Count all your blessings,
every single blessed one . . .
add them all together
be grateful for the sum.

Be thankful for all you have,
convey your gratitude
let your appreciation
reflect in your attitude.

Appreciate your wealth,
no matter how great or small
show your gratefulness
to God who supplies it all.

Let your thankfulness,
reach across the whole land
freely give to others
what God’s put in your hand.

Count all your blessings,
so many have not any. . .
give to them all you can
even if it’s your last penny!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 12:41-44

And Jesus sat over against
the treasury, and beheld
how the people cast money
into the treasury: and many
that were rich cast in much.

And there came
a certain poor widow,
and she threw in two mites,
which make a farthing.

And he called unto him his
disciples, and saith unto them,
Verily I say unto you,
That this poor widow
hath cast more in, than all
they which have cast into
the treasury:

For all they did cast in of
their abundance; but she
of her want did cast in all
that she had, even all her living.

A Plate of Grace ~

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
there’ll be no turkey with dressing
I’m only going to serve a plate
of gratitude for God’s blessings.

As a substitute for candied yams,
we’ll feast on His loving kindness
taste the sweetness of His favor
as we reflect on His righteousness.

There’ll be no rolls and butter,
instead, we’ll eat of the Bread of Life
with gratitude we’ll give our thanks
to Jesus for bearing our strife.

In place of mashed potatoes,
there’ll be praise piled just as high
we’ll sing our adoration
in place of having pumpkin pie.

The only beverage we will drink,
will be from the one True Vine
with humility on our lips
our thanks will be as sweet as wine.

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
there’ll be no traditional dinner
instead I’ll serve a plate of grace
to anyone who is a sinner!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 7:17

I will praise the Lord
according to his righteousness:

Blessing Counting ~

Don’t number your burdens,
instead count your blessings
for burden counting, adding
can be gloomy and depressing.

So let your mind run free,
and add up all the ways
God has provided you . . .
with your needs each day.

Don’t list your complaints,
instead tally up God’s benefits
for complaining, tallying
has disheartening elements.

So let your heart begin,
to list the hopeful things
everyday into your life
Jesus sends and brings.

Don’t list all of your have-nots,
rather count the good things God has given
when your done the total sum . . .
will add up to the reasons you’re forgiven!

Sticky Note to God ~08.11.18


So Many Sorrows ~

So many sorrows,
too much suffering
so many needing
God’s conforming.

So much illnesses,
too many sick
so many needing
God’s healing quick.

So much confusion,
too many restless
so many needing
God’s peacefulness.

So many troubles,
too much worry
so many blessings
God needs to hurry.

So much sorrow,
so many prayers
so many who need . . .
to know God still cares!

Psalm 38:21-22

“Forsake me not, O Lord:
O my God, be not far from me.

Too Numerous To Count ~

When I look at the stars,
as I watch their twinkling
I can see God’s blessings
in them glistening.

I see the star of my faith,
shinning so ever bright
for, God has blessed me
with His saving Light.

I see the star of my trust,
hanging in the sky above
for, God has blessed me
with His mercy and love.

I see the star of my hope,
it’s the brightest one
for, God has blessed me
with the grace of His Son.

When I look at the stars,
as they twinkle all about
I’m reminded God’s blessings
are just too numerous to count!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 15:5

“And he brought him forth abroad,
and said, Look now toward heaven,
and tell the stars, if thou be
able to number them:

So shall thy seed be.”

Springtime Is In The Air ~

Springtime is in the air,
I can feel its warming trend
though it’s not really here
I know it’s around the bend.

Each day I eagerly await,
for the blessings of Spring
knowing in my weary soul
God will do a new thing.

Springtime is in the air,
I can see its early bloom
melting away the aches
of winter’s chilly gloom.

For Springtime brings,
re-birth and revival
a heart rendering calm
upon its sunny arrival.

Springtime is in the air,
I hope you can feel it too
for it’s God’s promise . . .

When You’re Delighted ~

that-is-the-time-christian-poetry-by-deborah-nn

When you’re delighted,
to walk in God’s ways
that’s the time you’ll have
more peaceful days.

When you’re committed,
to seeking God first
that’s the time after Him
you genuinely thirst.

When you give God,
what your heart desires
that’s the time you’re doing
just what He requires.

When you trust God,
for everything
that’s the time you’ll see
each blessing He brings.

When in God’s ways
you’re truly delighted
that’s the time to be
joyfully excited!

The Season’s of Life ~

seasons-of-life-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The season’s of life,
blow in like the wind
some are slow-moving
others like a whirlwind.

But, I have found,
no matter the season
whatever blows my way
God has for it, a reason.

The season’s of life,
have their highs and lows
the cause behind them
only God really knows.

But, I have found,
seasons are a blessing
urging me into the goal
to just keep pressing.

The season’s of life,
blow in and out
some like a whisper
others with a shout.

But, I have found,
each season sent to me
keeps me trusting God
for what I cannot see!

there is a season,

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!

Every Day Thanks ~

Give Thanks by Matt Gruber free photo #6710

Thanksgiving Day is upon us,
soon we’ll gather at the table
with family and close friends
to feast on our favorite staples.

We’ll set aside our complaints,
in exchange for gratitude
for everyone, on this one day . . .
puts on a Thanksgiving attitude.

To God we’ll give our thanks,
for family, food and friends
but once the day is over . . .
sadly, our gratitude ends.

We’ll go back to complaining,
to our own self-sufficient way
any gratefulness that we felt . . .
will begin to wither and decay.

Thanksgiving Day is upon us,
soon we’ll gather at the table
and this year I will be praying. . .
gratitude ~ will be a daily staple!

Small Blessings ~

let it rain Daniel R free photo

Small blessings . . .
shower on us everyday
but, often to them
we question or downplay.

At times, we don’t notice,
these tiny drops of grace
they seem so insignificant
for us, to truly embrace.

If we were to slow down,
we couldn’t count them all
for they’re immeasurable
though they seem so small.

When we start to notice,
the drops of His wonder
we will begin to recognize
God’s merciful splendor.

Small blessings . . .
shower on us each day
for, God smiles down on us
as we go about our way!

Ungrateful People ~

Do Unto the Lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some people are ungrateful,
no matter what you do . . .
some just think they deserve
to always be catered to.

Some are unappreciative,
they show no gratitude
they have an ingrate spirit
with a thankless attitude.

Some people can’t be thankful,
for the gift of a new day
the words Thank You Father . . .
they don’t know how to say.

Some are too self involved,
caught up in their haughtiness
that they cannot see beyond
their thankless arrogance.

Some people are ungrateful,
no matter what you do . . .
but Lord, that’s okay with me
because all I do is for You!

The Blessings of Spring ~

The Blessings of Spring ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

~ The Blessings of Spring ~

There are many blessings,
that each new Spring brings
you can see it bloom about
and hear the song it sings.

With winters bleakness over,
and brighter days ahead
comes promises of new life
Springtime loves to spread.

As God unfolds the flowers,
and their buds begin to show
He gives to us the assurance
grace in our hearts will grow.

He sends us the robin’s song,
with the promise to provide
a shelter under His mighty wing
where in His love we can abide.

He melts the snowy covers,
and sends the refreshing rain
sprinkling us with His mercies
to heal winter’s ache and pain.

God’s given to all His Son,
to shed upon us a new light
and the real blessing of Spring . . .
is keeping Jesus in our sight!

Song of Solomon 2: 11-12

Trust Fund ~

trustlord-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Got me a trust fund,
use it every day
I can always count on it
especially when I pray.

God is the grantor,
His assets are all mine
it’s just like having
an eternal credit line.

I withdraw from it often,
but I never take a loss
for the rates are based on
the finished work of the cross.

Jesus is my inheritance,
I trust Him with all my heart
for I am the beneficiary
of the grace that He imparts.

My trust fund is secure,
the dividends keep growing
I am very confident  . . .
to heaven ~ I’ll be going!
