God Is ~

God is . . .

Our Shadow in the heat,
our Calm in the wave
our Refuge in the storm
the Father who can save.

Our Peace surpassing,
our Stillness unreal
our Hope never-ending
the God to whom we kneel.

Our Buckler of Trust,
our Horn of Salvation
our Rock of Strength
the Judge of every nation.

Our Cloud in the Night
our Light unto the Way
our very Present Help
the Potter of the clay.

Our Shield of Faith,
our High Lofty Tower
our Fortress of Peace
the Almighty full of Power!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 25:4

“For thou hast been
a strength to the poor,
a strength to the needy
in his distress,
a refuge from the storm,
a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the
terrible ones is as
a storm against the wall.”

Thank You God ~

Thank You God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Thank you God,
for all my days
for Your Spirit
to whom my soul sways.

For the calming peace,
You’ve instilled in me
for Your loving kindness
that has set me free.

For guiding me,
to find the Truth and Life
so I may conquer
all my worldly strife.

For leading me,
to the everlasting Light
which helps me to walk
pleasingly in Your sight.

Thank you God,
for each new day
for giving me Your Word
to enlighten the Way!

When Calm Eludes You ~

When Calmness Eludes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When calm doesn’t come,
when peace is far away
I stop what I’m doing
and to my Father, I pray.

Prayer is my refuge,
from the dread inside me
it’s where I find comfort
from the fear, I can’t see.

When I am anxious,
when my nerves are a mess
I pray without stopping
to rid myself of distress.

I put my trust in God,
till I’m no longer afraid
His unfailing love keeps me
from becoming dismayed.

When calmness eludes you,
when peace seems so far away
the best thing you can do . . .
is stop everything and pray!

Peace in The Storm ~

Peace in The Storm ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Give me peace,
in this storm Lord
give me peace
as I know You can . . .

I need You to calm,
the raging going on
I need You to hold me
till the jolting is gone.

I need You to quiet,
the turbulence within
I need Your strength
to fight the whirlwind.

I need You to still,
the thunder in my soul
I need Your tranquility
to take in me control.

Give me peace,
in this storm Lord
give me peace
as only You can!

The Promise ~

Heaven-is-our-home ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann

Further than the stars,
that my eyes can see
is the promise of rest
God has awaiting me.

Higher than the moon,
hanging in the sky
is the promise of peace
coming from up high.

Beyond the sun’s ray,
beaming from above
is the promise of bliss
bathed in eternal love.

Wider than the ocean,
deeper than the blue sea
is the promise of calm
waiting just for me.

Beyond what I envision,
further than all I can see
I know heaven is waiting
one day to welcome me!

What Love Is ~

What is Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Love is patient,
love is kind
love doesn’t have
a haughty mind,

It will not boast,
it is not proud
it doesn’t stand
out in a crowd.

Love is pleasant,
it doesn’t envy
it is cheerful
always friendly.

It’s full of joy,
mercy and favor
it is faithful
never a traitor.

Love is calm,
it is peaceful
never angry
always grateful.

It’s brings light,
rays of hope
love helps others
how to cope.

Love is patient,
love is kind
for love has . . .
a forgiving mind!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

“Charity suffereth long,

provoked, thinketh no evil;”

Prayer Changes Everything ~

Prayer Changes Everything ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Prayer changes,
everything . . .

anything.

Prayer adjusts,
our attitude
when we give God
His latitude.

Prayer brings,
peace and calm
it is our
soothing balm.

Prayer alters,
our life
helps us through
the strife.

Prayer atones,
every sin
gives us power
from within.

Prayer corrects,
our ways
helps us through
bad days.

Prayer changes,
everything . . .
prayer IS
life-altering!

What Thanksgiving Brings ~

praise-him-3 free  photo

Thanksgiving brings hope,
where there is none
thanksgiving brings gladness
as praise rolls of the tongue.

Thanksgiving brings calm,
where there is chaos
thanksgiving brings joyfulness
with peace, as its payoff.

Thanksgiving brings trust,
where there is doubt
thanksgiving brings jubilation
to those who are devout.

Thanksgiving brings power,
where there is weakness
thanksgiving brings merriment
healing and completeness.

Thanksgiving brings delight,
to our Father and His Son
thanksgiving brings rejoicing
for all they have done!

Troubled Waters ~

peace-be-still CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Troubled waters lie ahead,
blinding wind and foam
but my heart is set to sail
right into my eternal home.

Every crashing wave,
tests my faith once more
but I will ride each one out
till I reach heaven’s shore.

The swells rise and fall,
causing me to be fearsome
but I will fight them off
till I enter God’s kingdom.

Each burst of angry wind,
seeks to take me down
but I’ll stand up to its rage
till I wear victory’s crown.

My troubles keep mounting,
but they’ll not take over me
for, Jesus will calm the waters
till together ~ we can be!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Childlike Faith ~

Childlike Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Give me faith like a child,
without fear and doubt
where the Word of God
can root, grow and sprout.

Give me an attitude,
that believes readily
where happiness and joy
overflows steadily.

Give me childlike faith,
pure and simple . . .
one that is steadfast
not unsure or fickle.

Give me a mindset,
that to God is reachable
a mind that is open
hungry and teachable.

Give me a heart,
that is willing to obey
that humbly follows
without going astray.

Give me a soul,
that is calm and quiet
one that on God
is always reliant.

Give me faith like a child,
innocent and sweet
eagerly anticipating the day
when  Jesus and I will meet!

Today I received,
a love letter from God
I opened up my Bible

I am your Creator,
before you were born
I molded and formed you
just like the dew in the morn.

I’m the remedy to your needs,
I am your soothing balm
I’m the peace in your storm
I am the voice that is calm.

I’m all the grace you need,
in Me, there is eternal life
I came so that I could bear
the burden of your strife.

I am your staff of comfort,
I will shield and protect you
through life’s complexities
together we’ll journey through.

I am the anchor of your soul,
a safe place to run and hide
I will never forsake you . . .
I am always at your side.

I’m the lamp unto your way,
with my Word I will guide
I am the One who you feel
stirring up deep inside.

I am your Creator,
I knew you from the start
that is why I gave to you
for Me ~ a loving heart!

Perfect Peace ~

keep-in-peaceCHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to know the peace of God,
to experience its perfect calm
to use His every Word
as our soothing, healing balm.

Then we’d have tranquility,
through the storms of life
we’d soar above the turbulence
riding out the winds of strife.

Oh, to have the serenity of God,
flowing from our weary hearts
to have minds engulfed in stillness
which only His Spirit can impart.

Then we’d have the faith,
to trust God in all things
and the discipline to know
the perfect peace He brings!

A Trusting Heart ~

Trust the Lord with all Your Heart used with pemission IBible VErses

A trusting heart knows God,
it is filled with His peace
it has a calmness deep within
that it knows will never cease.

It is full of worship and praise,
is triumphant in all its ways
it is devoted and committed
honoring God with all its days.

It is steadfast and faithful,
it has not a wavering beat
it rises in the morning
so it’s Savior it can meet.

It is happy and content,
joyfulness flows throughout
it harbors not a fear
and casts away all doubt.

A trusting heart knows God,
is always within its reach
it has a calmness deep within
because it is full of His peace!

Healing Waters ~

Peace that Surpasses used with permission IBible Verses on Facebook

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of this life
leaves us begging for relief.

We thirst for healing waters,
for a peaceful resting place
where we can forget the pain
that’s too unbearable to face.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove its own heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
but God can and will . . .
relieve the throb in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the anguished true relief!

Oh, My little sparrow,
I will not let you fall

I’ll hear your every call.

I have given you freedom,
to fly off anywhere
but it is up to you
to trust me with your care.

Oh, My little sparrow,

But you must learn to fly,
on your own faithful wings
for you are not My puppet . . .
I hold not, your worldly strings!

Praying Hands by Megan Isaacson free ohoto #13320

I heard from God today,
He told me to keep believing

He told me to always trust
to wait for the calm to set in.

I heard from God today,

He told me about His mercy
how He’s working all things out.

I heard from God today,

He told me to be strong
to count on Him to be near.

I heard from God today,
He told me to pray for you . . .
He told me that you needed
to hear from Him too!

A Quiet Peace ~

Boat by Jarrod Skeggs free photo #1407

A feeling of quiet peace,
a restfulness deep inside
the presence of such calm
is when God is at my side.

Around me, there’s a storm,
that resembles a rumbling sea
yet, that feeling of tranquility
still flourishes inside me.

A feeling of quiet peace,
a serenity that flows about
the presence of His holiness
I can feel it surge throughout.

While the sea may be stormy,
as it rages through my mind
my heart is calmly reassured
His quietness is mine to find.

A feeling of quiet peace,
a calmness that far exceeds
all my wishes and desires
for, God surpasses all my needs.

Love Is . . .

Masters of the Heart by Chris Kennedy free photo # 12572

Love that is . . .
patient and kind
that reaches down
and touches mankind.

Love that is chaste,
and pure in thought
that humbles itself
before it’s sought.

Love that holds,
it’s temper still
that shows a calmness
that fulfills.

Love that hopes,
is filled with desire
that holds itself true
that doesn’t expire.

Love that trusts,
believes and is sure
that is forever
that which will endure.

Love that never fails,
or ceases to be
that can’t be bought
but which is free.

Love that is honest,
sincere and real
that evil and darkness
can’t conceal.

Love that grows,
deep in your heart
that which only
the Lord can impart.

This is the love,
we ought to show
to each and every
person that we know!

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

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

“Charity suffereth long,

seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity,
but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things,
hopeth all things, endureth all things.”

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
