Teach Me, Lord ~

christian-poetry-by-deborahann-open-the-eyes-of-my-heart-ibible-verses

Teach me Lord to be calm,
when fear comes around
let me learn to stand firm
not on shaky, rocky ground.

Teach me to believe,
to trust when I’m troubled
let me have a single mind
not one bent and doubled.

Teach me to know,
my times are in Your hands
let me see lush green valleys
not the shaky, faulty lands.

Teach me to understand,
the reasons for my trials
let my faith in You . . .
be not full of denials.

Teach me to love You,
with eyes open wide
so that into my heart
You’ll come to reside!

A Thread of Faith ~

by-believing CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It only takes a thread of faith,
to keep you from unraveling
it only takes one strand of trust
so God can do some dazzling.

It only takes one single cord,
to have patience in all things
it only takes a fiber of hope
to see the strength God brings.

It only takes a wisp of conviction,
to believe in what you can’t see
it only takes a little string of truth
to see how great God can be.

It only takes a remnant of belief,
and a willingness to pray
it only takes one heartfelt cry
for God to save the day.

It only takes a thread of faith,
to weave your salvation story
it only takes one strand of trust
for God to have all the glory!

King James Version

into the land,

thou shalt bind
this line of scarlet thread

in the window which
thou didst let us down by:

The Poor In Spirit ~

Blessed Are by  Joe Cacazos free photo #5225

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me see my own depravity
show me all my iniquities
my absolute spiritual poverty.

Give me the understanding,
to recognize my sinful condition
let me dwell on my wickedness
till I feel the sting of conviction.

Show me my lustful appetites,
the habits of selfishness
let me look upon my heart
till I see my own helplessness.

Let me see my sinfulness,
what’s not pleasant in Your sight
examine and judge me
for Your laws are always right.

Shut up in me Your loving grace,
lock up in me Your tender mercy
let me exercise my full obedience
till Your love flows out of me.

Lord, make me poor in spirit,
let me be, for You hard pressed
let me see my absolute poverty
so I may be ~ heaven blessed!
