Tag Archives: Cares & Anxieties

Everyone Has Something ~

Everyone has something,
messing up their day
everyone has new storms
freshly blowing their way.

Everyone has problems,
throwing them off course
everyone has troubles
coming at them full force.

Everyone has dilemmas,
they need to address
everyone has anxieties
causing them to stress.

Everyone has worries,
tossing them about
everyone has concerns
they need to work out.

But, we who have Jesus,
needn’t be aghast . . .
for onto Him our cares
we can freely broadcast!

1 Peter 5:7

Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.

When I’m Restless ~

When I am restless,
in need of a break
I go to the only One
who never will forsake.

As I lean into Him,
He rests inside of me
all my anxiousness
on Him, I set free.

He takes my cares,
releases the strain
any worries I have
He begins to drain.

A sense of renewal,
stirs within my soul
over my anxieties
He resumes control.

When I am restless,
to Jesus I will go . . .
for He is the only One
who my breath can slow!

Jeremiah 31:25

“For I have satiated
the weary soul,
and I have replenished
every sorrowful soul.”

Riding Out The Storm ~

I’m riding out this storm,
going with the flow
no matter how long
the winds decide to blow.

I’m hanging on,
not getting blown away
on Jesus I’ll keep my grip
till I see the light of day.

I’m riding out this storm,
going to give it my all
if I start to get anxious
on my Savior I will call.

I’m clinging on,
to the Anchor of my hope
I’m counting on Jesus
to give me the grace to cope.

I’m riding out this storm,
I’ve got all the right gear
for, I have my Bible . . .
so what is there to fear!

Psalm 107:29

“He maketh the storm
a calm,
so that the waves thereof
are still.”

The Threshold of Fear ~

the-threshold-of-fear-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Today I felt fear,
slither across my threshold
I knew right away
it wanted to take a foothold.

It pounded on my heart,
thumped upon my soul
it clamored for my mind
so it could take control.

I felt its anxiety,
I sensed its panicking
I could clearly hear
its hissing babbling.

So, I took it by the neck,
and gave it a shake
for I knew it was satan
that old, slimy snake.

Today I felt fear,
slither across my threshold
so I met it with God’s power
and from it, got the foothold!

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us
the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love,
and of a sound mind.”

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!

Casting Your Cares ~

Cast all your cares upon Jesus,
give to Him all of your fears
let the love of your Savior
dry the river of your tears.

Shed those anxious thoughts,
the fretfulness in your mind
and the serenity of God
you will come to know and find.

Release all of your worries,
every concern trapped inside
give them over to Jesus
and in His peace you’ll abide.

Free yourself from the stress,
do not let fear be your slave
let go and let God comfort you
and from your dread He will save.

Cast all your care upon Jesus
for He cares for you . . .
give Him your heavy burdens
and your every fear too!

1 Peter 5:7

“Casting all your care upon Him,
for He cares for you.”

Trust Jesus ~

Trust Jesus ~ CRHISTian poetry by deborah ann

Trust Him in all things,
even when dark shadows fall
trust in Jesus . . .
even when your faith is small.

Trust Him with your troubles,
cast on Him your cares
trust Him when your burdens
are too much for you to bear.

Trust Him when the pain,
sears through your heart
trust Him with your sorrow
as it rips the soul apart.

Trust Him for the unknown,
when the valley’s deep
trust Him when blinded
by the tears you weep.

Trust Him when it’s not easy,
when it seems impossible to do
trust in Jesus . . .
for, He will never fail you!

~~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 31:6
King James Version

“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.”

Just Pray ~

Just Pray ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In everything in life,
no matter how big or small
the trivial and the considerable
let Jesus have them all.

Take time to talk with Him,
not just in your prayers
share no matter the time of day
your worries and your cares.

Then quickly give them to Him,
and wait for Him to answer
with praise and thanksgiving
watch as your burdens transfer.

For, Jesus will take them all,
His peace will come your way
if in everything, you don’t forget
to talk to Him and just pray!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests

be made known unto God.
And the peace of God,
which passeth

all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds

through Christ Jesus.”

King James Version
