Afternoon Ponderings~09.03.18~


Clouds~

Sometimes there’s a cloud,
hanging over me . . .
no matter where I look
despair is all I see.

I ask God to remove,
the gloom in my way
but, it remains no matter
how hard I try to pray.

The feeling is somber,
disheartening to say the least
and I know it is coming
from satan that old  beast.

For he wants me to be,
discouraged and joyless
he loves to make me feel
rejected and hopeless.

Lord, sometimes there’s a cloud,
dampening my view
but it simply dissipates . . .
the more I think of you!

within me
thy comforts delight my soul.”

Disappointments ~

Discouragement ~ CRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Disappointments come,
into every one’s life . . .
some we can push aside
others cause inside strife.

They have many shapes,
but, with the same face
for, hopelessness knows
it’s all about the chase.

They can poke around,
or hit straight in the gut
for, depression only wants
you wallowing in its rut.

They come in many forms,
but, with the same attitude
making singing the blues
almost impossible to elude.

Into every one’s life,
comes disappointment . . .
but, I have found God’s Word
to be failure’s curing ointment!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 43.5

O my soul?
and why art thou disquieted
within me?
hope in God:
for I shall yet praise him,
who is the health of my
countenance, and my God.”

When All Hope is Gone ~

When All Hope is Gone ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When all hope,
has gone out of you
when the sea ahead
turns a raging blue.

Hold on to Jesus,
let Him be your light
and the waves of depression
He will help you fight.

When all desire,
has gone out of you
when the storm you’re in
obscures your eternal view.

Hold on to Jesus,
let Him be your Rock
and the winds of adversity
He will begin to block.

When all hope and desire,
has gone out of you . . .
you’ll not be discouraged
if Jesus you hold onto!

~~~~~~

Acts 27:20

“And when neither sun nor stars
in many days appeared, and no
small tempest lay on us,
all hope that we should be saved
was then taken away.”

All I Have to Do ~

All I Have to Do ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I get depressed,
when I get feeling blue
all I have to do Lord . . .
is to stop and think of You.

Just Your very name,
brings a smile to my face
reminding me, I am loved
in the fullness of Your grace.

When I get disheartened,
when I’m feeling all alone
all I have to do Lord . . .
is to look up, to Your throne.

Just knowing You’re above,
watching over me
makes me feel as if . . .
I’m already there with Thee

Whenever I get discouraged,
when I get feeling stressed
Lord, all I do is think of You . . .
to see how much I’m blessed!

“Blessed is the man
whose strength is in thee;
in whose heart
are the ways of them.”

Go Easy on Yourself ~

dont-worry CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

 Go easy on yourself,
don’t put yourself down
don’t get depressed
or wear a big old frown.

Don’t carry that burden,
by yourself, physically
don’t take on that load
all alone, spiritually.

Go easy on yourself,
don’t stress yourself out
don’t second guess
or succumb to self-doubt.

Don’t let fear and worry,
eat away at you
don’t allow the enemy
to tell you what to do.

Go easy on yourself,
and don’t forget to pray
for Jesus promises . . .
to give you peace each day!

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

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.”

Hope On ~

Hope on, all you who are in despair,
hope on, knowing He will forever care
rest in the promises of your Savior
and God will bless you with His favor.

Hope on, all you who are suffering,
hope on, let His mercy do the buffering
know that this too shall pass and end
and your problems God will fix and mend.

Hope on, you the fainthearted one,
hope on, and trust in His living Son
God’s grace will help and see you through
for there isn’t anything He can’t do.

Hope on, all those who have great sorrow,
hope on, He will bring a brighter tomorrow
find rest in God’s everlasting arms
and He’ll protect you from all that harms.

Hope on, all you who are in unending pain,
hope on, for soon you are going to gain
rest and comfort that only God can give
so hold on, and in His peace you shall live!

Psalm 31:24
King James Version

“Be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the Lord.”
