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:
and he said unto him,
So shall thy seed be.”

My Soul Thirsts ~

Lord, in the aridness,
of my heart and soul
I am thirsty for You
to reign and take control.

I long to absorb and drink,
from Your holy Word
to feel the Living Waters
in my mind being stirred.

Lord, in the dryness,
of my daily reality
I thirst for You to bring
a hopeful vitality.

I long to be nourished,
with the Truth and Life
to feel Your stilling peace
eat away my earthly strife.

Lord, my soul thirsts,
for You solely . . .
tis why I seek You
with my heart wholly!

~~~~~~

Psalm 63:1

“O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;”

In His Strength ~

When troubles waters,
start to churn and swirl
before my faith . . .
can begin to spiral.

To my Lord,
I take my distress
and with His strength
I am blessed.

When my worries,
start to push and pull
before my faith . . .
becomes void and null.

To my Lord,
I take my praise
and in His strength
I am not fazed.

When troubled waters,
are all I can see . . .
I pray to my Lord
to strengthen me!

which strengtheneth me.”

Migraines ~

Light flashes,
lines zig-zagging
arms go limp
eyes starts sagging.

Dizzy and woozy,
room is a spinning
migraine headache
is just beginning.

Close my eyes,
go with the flow
sit back and watch
the light show.

Throbbing starts,
take migraine pill
try to relax
and just be still.

Shut off lights,
turn down sound
as head goes . . .
pound, pound, pound.

Rockin and reeling,
from the pain
oh, how I wish
to end this migraine.

If you suffer,
just like I do . . .
please let me know
so I can pray for you!

Fearless ~

I once was bound,
knotted up with fear
but then Jesus came
and drew me near.

He took my thoughts,
filled them with hope
became the Anchor
at the end of my rope.

I once was chained,
coupled with dread
but then Jesus came
right into my head.

He took my mind,
filled it with peace
said unto Him
my fears to release.

I once was bound,
but, now I’m fearless
for, Jesus released in me
His calming stillness!

~~~~~~

Matthew 14:26-27

“And when the disciples
saw him walking on the sea,
they were troubled, saying,
It is a spirit; and they
cried out for fear.

But straightway Jesus
spake unto them, saying,
Be of good cheer;
it is I; be not afraid.”

May God’s Peace Rule ~

May God’s peace,
rule your mind today
may to its quieting lull
your heart give way.

May you experience,
God’s tranquility
may it fill you with
grace and humility.

May you relish,
the settled quietness
may you soak up
the sedated peacefulness.

May you encounter,
God’s perfect stillness
may you receive
His stilling calmness.

May the peace of God,
ease your worried mind
may in your heart
His serenity you find!

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,

Through The Valley Of Grief ~

God’s brought me through,
the valley of pain . . .
gave me His strength
for, He knew my strain.

He took me by the hand,
lead me through my grief
promised with each step
in Him, I’d find relief.

I held on so tightly,
for, I thought I’d faint
but, God became for me
sorrow’s constraint.

Some days are really hard,
others are not so bad
but, God always comforts me
whenever I’m feeling sad.

Through the valley of grief,
heartache and mourning
God keeps reminding me . . .
joy will come in the morning!

Psalm 30:5

“For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour is life:
weeping may endure for a night,
but joy cometh in the morning.

Throwing In The Towel ~

Some days I feel like quitting,
just throwing in the towel
some days I don’t want to think
of another rhyming vowel.

Some days it’s so hard,
putting words into rhyme
some days I feel as if . . .
I’m just wasting my time.

But, then I read my Bible,
and the verses seem to jump
helping me to get over
my poetry writing slump.

For, God keeps telling me,
to continue, to carry on
how I need to keep doing
what I know He has begun.

Some days I feel like quitting,
blogging how and what I feel
but, then God encourages me
and restores my rhyming zeal!

Jesus To The Rescue ~

Lord, today I’m feeling,
a little off course
like a ship without . . .
a navigation source.

I feel like I’m drifting,
in a sea of doubt
and I need Your guidance
to find my way out.

Things are a little foggy,
my head is feeling light
and these waves of fear
I’ll need Your help to fight.

I feel I’ll soon get caught,
like a fish on a hook
for satan’s traps and snares
are everywhere I look.

Lord, today I’m feeling,
like a ship lost at sea
so I’m counting on You . . .
to come and rescue me!

God Comforts the Mournful ~

Some people appear,
strong on the outside
when really they’re falling
apart on the inside.

Some people pretend,
they have it all together
some contend alone
any storm they can weather.

Some people claim,
they don’t need any aid
some camouflage
just how much their afraid.

Some people look,
happy and joyful
some disguise so well
a heart, sorrowful.

Some people are indeed,
strong on the outside
for, God comforts those
who mourn on the inside!

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

My Grief Reliever ~

I have felt grief  . . .
whack me on the shoulder
I have felt it in my gut
hit me like a boulder.

I have felt its shock,
just like a lighting bolt
I’ve felt its thunder deliver
my heart a stunning jolt.

I have felt grief . . .
punch me in my face
I’ve felt its raging torment
my whole body encase.

I have felt its aftershock,
shake up my entire world
I’ve felt its deadly tremor
as its pain was unfurled.

But, each time I felt the pain,
brought on only by grief . . .
I went straight to Jesus
to give my heart relief!

Good Morning Joy ~

Good morning joy,
it’s so nice to see you
its such a blessing
to have you in my view.

Good morning joy,
thank you for greeting me
it’s so nice knowing
today with me you’ll be.

Good morning joy,
it’s a wonder you are here
I know God sent you
to dry my every tear.

Good morning joy,
though I’m still grieving
just the thought of you
is soothing and relieving.

Good morning joy,
it’s so comforting to know
you’ll be following me
where ever today I go!

Life’s Demands ~

Lord, sometimes I get exhausted,
with all of life’s demands
sometimes I get so tired
following everyone’s commands.

For, I would much rather,
just spend time alone with You
with my Bible and commentary
the only two things in view.

Lord, sometimes I get fatigued,
just thinking of all I’ve to do
sometimes I am overwhelmed
meeting time lines, coming due.

For, I would so much rather,
just sit and listen to . . .
praise and worship songs
about my love for You.

Lord, sometimes I get weary,
thinking about the day ahead
for, I would so much rather  . . .
just stay praying to You in bed!

Chilling Out ~

Today, I am chilling,
going to take it easy
not letting my fears
make me feel queasy.

Today, I am relaxing,
got me not a care
for, I took them all
to my Lord in prayer.

Today, I am resting,
letting go of it all
for, into the worry pit
I refuse to fall.

Today, I am slacking,
just Jesus and me
there’s not a doubt
together we will be.

Today I am chilling,
I’ll be easy-going . . .
for with God’s peace
I am overflowing!

God Never Gets Weary ~

Are you feeling fatigued,
by your weariness
are you exhausted
and feeling listless?

Then wait on the Lord,
your energy He’ll renew
for He never gets tired
of strengthening you.

Do you need recharging,
a shot of endurance
do you need fortitude
some extra assurance?

Then wait on the Lord,
faint He does not
He never gets worn-out
when His power is sought

Are you growing weary,
is your faith getting slack?
Then wait on the Lord . . .
for the strength you lack!

~~~~~

Isaiah 40:30-31

“Even the youths shall faint
and be weary, and the young
men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon
the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with
wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

A Trembling Mess ~

I use to be,
panic-stricken
I once was
fear driven.

But then Jesus,
said to me
don’t be afraid
by what you see.

I use to be,
a big worry wart
I once was
anxiety’s transport.

But then Jesus,
took my cares
said they were His
alone to bear.

I use to be,
a trembling mess
but then Jesus carried
away all my distress!

Losing A Child ~

I’ve been through the storm,
of losing a child . . .
I’ve felt the searing pain
in my heart run wild.

I’ve seen grief destroy,
the lives of those left behind
I’ve seen families become
scattered and realigned.

I’ve seen sorrow up close,
the look you can’t miss
I’ve seen how it leaves
a hopeless, grim abyss.

I’ve seen how heartbreak,
crushes even the strongest
I’ve seen with its callous hold
there is no real contest.

I’ve seen God’s hand,
reach down from above
and touch the broken-hearted
with His healing love!

Never Alone ~

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

His very presence,
gives me such peace
for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

He brings me comfort,
just knowing He’s here
He fills my heart and soul
with joy and good cheer.

I once thought,
I’d be left on my own
but since I found Jesus
I am never alone!

Heaven, I’m In Heaven ~

When in the middle of the night
when my worries invade me
I close my eyes and think . . ..
how heaven is going to be.

I can see so much beauty,
a light that is so bright
I couldn’t tell you whether
it was morning, noon or night.

I see no hearts in mourning,
not a single tear is falling
there’s not one soul in pain
nor do I hear any crying.

I see the dwelling place of God,
I hear praises to His name
I see all the things made new
and how nothing is the same.

I see walls of precious gems,
inside a paradise like mansion
I see it has so many rooms
with extra space for expansion.

When in the middle of the day,
when my troubles surround me
I close my eyes and think  . . .
how blissful heaven will be!

Give God Your Worries ~

give-god-your-worries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people worry,
about anything
some get anxious
over everything.

Some wrestle daily,
with their troubles
some nightly fight
with their struggles.

But, those who wait,
on the Lord are still
the worries they have
their peace cannot steal.

They cast their anxiety,
onto Jesus each day
they don’t fret about
things coming their way.

Some people worry,
about anything
but, those who trust God
give Him their everything!

I Love Jesus ~

I love Jesus,
this I can’t deny
His love for me
I’ll forever rely.

I trust Jesus,
He trusts me . . .
He’s my anchor
on life’s stormy sea.

I delight in Jesus,
He delights in me
one day in heaven
we are going to be.

I believe in Jesus,
He believes in me
He gives me faith
in what I can’t see.

I’m a friend of Jesus,
He’s befriended me
no greater love . . .
will I ever see!
