Afternoon Ponderings~06.12.19


Leap of Faith ~

Whenever you hit,
that eventual wall
remember on Jesus
you can always call.

He will help get you,
up and over it
with the strength
of the Holy Spirit.

Whenever you hit,
that awaiting obstacle
don’t forget with Jesus
nothing is impossible.

He will help you to take,
faith’s boundless leap
and on you His power
He will endlessly heap.

Whenever you hit,
that unexpected barricade
remember with Jesus
you need not be dismayed!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:29

“For by thee I have run
through a troop;
and by my God have
I leaped over a wall.”

Tip-Toe Faith ~

God has taken me,
into valley’s low and deep
with obstacles so hard
all I wanted to do was weep.

But instead I found,
what true trust was about
as I learned to give Jesus
all my fears and doubt.

God has placed me,
high on mountain tops
with many challenges
that made me want to stop.

But instead He showed me,
what true hope was about
once I found to Jesus
I could always reach out.

God has brought me through,
many highs and lows
to show me true faith
isn’t walked on tip-toes!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:36

“Thou hast enlarged
my steps under me,
that my feet did not slip.”

Your Wall Will Fall ~

Your wall will come down,
it too can fall
if on God’s power
you willingly call.

Your wall will crumble,
it too can come apart
it you trust God
with all your soul and heart.

Your wall will topple,
it too can collapse
if you will give God
your circumstance.

Your wall will weaken,
it too can flatten out
if you give to God
all your fear and doubt.

Your wall will fall,
it too will be demolished
if you believe God . . .
anything can be accomplished!

~~~~~~~~

Joshua 6:20

“So the people shouted when
the priests blew with the trumpets:
and it came to pass, when the people
heard the sound of the trumpet,
and the people shouted with a great shout,
that the wall fell down flat,
so that the people went up into the city,
every man straight before him,
and they took the city.”

The Path Towards Peace ~

The path towards peace,
is one paved in pain
with plenty of loss
for our spiritual gain.

On it there is suffering,
sorrow and persecution
but, in Jesus we all have
hope and restitution.

The path towards heaven,
is full of ups and downs
plenty of highs and lows
we have to get around.

On it there are setbacks,
barricades and barriers
but, they only make us
for Jesus, stronger warriors.

The path towards joy,
is one we can truly trust
for Jesus our Savior . . .
has gone on it before us!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:13

“But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are
partakers of Christ’s sufferings;
that, when his glory shall be
revealed, ye may be glad
also with exceeding joy.”

Committing To The Narrow Way ~

commiting-to-the-narrow-way-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Having a hard time,
staying on the narrow way
too many obstacles
to get over each day?

Too many trials,
testings and tribulations
keeping you from striving
to your eternal destination?

Feeling you’ll never get,
through the narrow gate
too many challenges keeping
you from going straight?

Too many worries,
troubles and cares
too many burdens
for you to have to bear?

Well don’t get discourage,
to the narrow way commit
and be happy that you  . . .
were even able to find it!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:14

“Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

No Wonder ~

No Wonder ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Life is full of storms,
valleys plenty deep
no wonder we need . . .
a Good Shepherd’s keep.

With so much uncertainty,
every day that we face
no wonder we need . . .
a sufficient supply of grace.

Our fears can be numerous,
our worries limitless
no wonder we need . . .
God’s mercy, measureless.

With various challenges,
we daily go through
no wonder we need . . .
God’s strength, each day anew.

So often we’re discouraged,
lost in all the confusion
no wonder we need . . .
the Holy Spirit’s infusion.

Life is full of storms,
winds so unexpected
no wonder we need to keep . . .
our eyes, heavenly directed!

Philippians 3:14
