The Source of My Confidence ~

The Source of My Confidence ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Lord is the source,
of my confidence
His grace gives me
needed temperance.

He holds the answer,
to all of my fears
His mercy tells me
He sees all my tears.

The Lord is my reason,
to keep on living
unto Him my trust
I will keep on giving.

He is the cause,
my faith isn’t shaken
for He will keep my foot
from ever being taken.

The Lord is the source,
of my hope and trust
my confidence in Him
for me, is a daily must!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 3:26

“For the Lord
shall be thy confidence,

and shall keep
thy foot from being taken.”

Beauty For Ashes ~

Beauty for Ashes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Is your heart heavy,
are you in pain
do your troubles . . .
fall like acid rain?

Are you in mourning,
is your heart broken
do you feel as if . . .
time has been frozen?

Are you in despair,
haven’t a notion
are you just going . . .
through the motions?

Do you feel hopeless,
times hitting you hard
has anguish left you . . .
despondent and scarred.

Well don’t you give up,
don’t fall into a heap
joy will come after
all the tears you weep.

God’s making something,
beautiful out of you . . .
just give Him your cares
and all things He’ll make new!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 61:3
King James Version

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
to give unto them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

Taking It To Jesus ~

God_Wants_To_Talk_To_You free photo

Whenever I’m unhappy,
feeling down and out
I take my thoughts to Jesus
talk to Him about my doubt.

I tell Him the way is hard,
things haven’t been so easy
my heart’s frequently broken
my stomach is often queasy.

I let Him know of my cares,
the worries on my mind
how I seem to bump into . . .
difficulties of every kind.

But, then He reminds me,
He came to give me peace
though it does not mean
my troubles will ever cease.

As I turn over in my mind,
my worries and my cares
they just seem to vanish . . .
the more with Jesus I share!

~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 3:16
King James Version

“Now the Lord of peace himself
give you peace always by all means.”

The Stranger ~

be-kind-and-compassionate CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I saw You today,
on a strangers face
I could tell their smile
was full of love and grace.

Lord, I felt You today,
as they took my hand in theirs
it was as if they too could feel
all of my worries and my cares.

Lord, I heard from You today,
when they prayed just for me
their sweet words of comfort
brought me to my thankful knees.

Lord, I heard You today,
I felt Your very presence
in this stranger, You sent me
I got a glimpse of Your essence.

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

Ephesians 4:32
King James Version

“And be ye kind one to another,

I Need A Faith Lift ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

Lord, I need a faith lift,
perhaps a nip and tuck . . .
an implant of more grace
to get me out of this rut.

I need to liposuction,
the lack of trust out of me
so I can keep my confidence
believing in what I can’t see.

Perhaps some perseverance,
will cure the funk I’m in
an infusion of joy . . .
to bring back my gleeful grin.

I need to give to You,
my worries and my cares
so You can come and do
the restoring and repairs.

Lord, I need a faith lift,
for mine is getting shabby
I’ll need a nip and tuck
before it gets too flabby!

James 1:3
King James Version

of your faith worketh patience.”

A Thousand Anxieties ~

anxiety-500x500 used with permissions

A thousand anxieties,
more than a million prayers
for the relief from our pain
the weight of our cares.

A thousand worries,
too many fears to number
so many disturbing thoughts
robbing us of our  slumber.

A thousand burdens,
some too heavy to bear
a multitude of troubles
leave their wear and tear.

A thousand concerns,
a million more to come
but with faith in Jesus
we shall overcome!

Be of Good Cheer ~

but-take-heart_thumb used with permission IBible Verses

In this fallen world,
we’ll have pain and sorrow
but Jesus came to give us
a brighter tomorrow.

Oh, there’ll be days of defeat,
trials along with persecution
but Jesus came to overcome
the turmoil and confusion.

He knew we’d have troubles,
many worries and cares
but He came to comfort
and our burdens He does bear.

We’ll have grief and tragedy,
illnesses and disease
but He came to restore
and to set our minds at ease.

In this fallen world,
we’ll have pain and sorrow
but be of good cheer . . .
Jesus overcame our tomorrow!

John 16:33
King James Version

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.

Fragile ~

He Will Do It used with permission IBibble Verses

God won’t give to you,
anything you can’t do
He’ll not send you troubles
He can’t help you get through.

There will be many storms,
that will come your way
but, He’ll give you strength
whenever to Him you pray.

There will be heartaches,
sadness, anguish and grief
but, He’ll bring you comfort
give your heart rest and relief.

There will be setbacks,
delays, holdups and regrets
but, He’ll stay close to you
through all defeats and upsets.

There will be long days,
nights, weeks and even years
but, He will deliver you
from every one of your fears.

God will not leave you,
He knows you’re too fragile
He will give you His strength
so your troubles you can handle!

The Good Shepherd ~

The Lord is My Shepherd used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I’ve everything that is good
for He tenderly cares for me
as a Good Shepherd should.

He keeps me from danger,
protects my every step
He won’t let my foot slip
He saves each misstep.

He’s skilful and faithful,
to care for His flock
He keeps me from wandering
watches me like a hawk.

When I call out His name,
He comes running to me
for He recognizes my voice
from temptation I’m free.

He tends to my desires,
knows what I will need
I’ll  not go hungry
for on His goodness I feed.

I shall find satisfaction,
all the days of my life
for  He took upon Himself
the lot of my strife!

Strength for The Asking ~

Strength For the Asking ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In times of trouble,
remember Jesus is there
strength for the asking
hope for every care.

All the fears you have,
He will cause to cease
beneath the endless worry
lays a bounty of His peace.

His mercy and His grace,
are bestowed upon us all
He inclines His loving ear
to each distressing call.

His eyes are always on us,
He hears our every prayer
for He has made a promise
our burdens He would bear.

There’s no need to doubt,
put your anxiousness aside
rest in the knowledge
all your needs He’ll provide.

In times of trouble,
in times of pain and sorrow
He is our strength for the day
our hope for each tomorrow!

When Jesus Reigns!

Kingdom Nathan Furr free photo #12438

When the cares of my heart are many,
when they bog me down with fear
I look to Jesus for comfort
and His love, brings my spirit cheer.

When the worries of my soul are many,
when they take their grip on me
I look to God’s Word for comfort
and His grace, is all I see.

When the anxieties of my mind are many,
when they take from me my peace
I look to the Holy Spirit for comfort
and His calm, gives my thoughts release.

When the woes of the world get to me,
when they dredge up the worst of mankind
I look to the throne up in heaven . . .
and know all things ~ God has designed.

When His Kingdom appears on earth,
when Jesus comes to rule and to reign
I know He will dry every tear
and He put an end to all of this pain!

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

Revelation 21:4
King James Version
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.”

When I Consider the Lilies ~

flower in filed by Evan Schneider free photo #15133
When I consider the lilies
I stop fretting . . .
over the cares of my life
for when I think of the lilies
I stop worrying . . .
about what causes me strife.

When I consider the lilies,
I stop fussing . . .
over my wants and needs
for when I think of the lilies
I start trusting . . .
and I get down on my knees.

When I consider the lilies,
I am thankful . . .
God will hear my plea
for when I think of the lilies
I just know . . .
Jesus will take care of me!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:28-29
King James Version

“And why take ye thought for raiment?
Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow; they toil not,
neither do they spin:

And yet I say unto you,
That even Solomon

in all his glory was not
arrayed like one of these.”

I Will Carry You ~

I Will Carry You ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When you’re feeling over burdened,
and the answers are far and few
when your troubles cause you to stumble
I will carry you ~

When you’re feeling overwhelmed,
and you don’t know what more to do
when your worries take you to your knees
I will carry you ~

When you’re beaten up and broken,
and you have no one else to turn to
when you feel weak and faint
I will carry you ~

When your life becomes unraveled,
and everything seems to be askew
when your cares cause you to collapse
I will carry you ~

When you’re tired and oppressed,
and another day you can’t make through
when your agony causes you to cave in
I will carry you ~

When your path becomes uncertain,
and yet, yesterday the way you knew
when your journey comes to an end . . .
it’s because I’ve carried you!

King James Version

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”
