The Hand of God ~

the-hand-of-god-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

I’ve felt the hand of disappointment,
slap me across the face
I’ve handled discouragement
without finesse and grace.

I’ve felt the sting of rejection,
burn from head to toe
I’ve handled the loneliness
by hiding in my own shadow.

I’ve felt the weight of despair,
hanging heavy on my heart
I’ve handled the agony
in ways not always smart.

I’ve felt the pain of self-loathing,
like a deadly cancer spread
I’ve handled the mockery
by repeating what others said.

I have felt the hand of God,
touch my life within . . .
now I am only disappointed
if I don’t spend time with Him!

~~~~~~

Psalm 42:11

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

Victory Over Fear ~

If We're Not to be Fearful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
If we’re not to be fearful,
if we’re not to be afraid
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel overwhelmingly dismayed?

If we’re not to despair,
if we’re not to be weak
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel so hopelessly bleak?

If we’re not to be concerned,
if we’re not to worry about today
then why do we sometimes . .
feel so helpless anyway?

If we’re not to be frightened,
if we’re not to have a single care
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel so emotionally threadbare?

If we’re not to be fearful,
if we’re not to be dismayed
then why are we not trembling . . .
with joy, instead of being afraid?

~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will
help thee; yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Time . . . Does Not Heal ~

Healed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

It’s not time ~ that heals,
it’s not about a new day
it’s about God’s mercy . . .
taking our suffering away.

It’s not about a brighter day,
of another tomorrow . . .
it’s about God understanding
the true depth of our sorrow.

It’s not time ~ that we need,
it’s not about another year
it’s about God collecting . . .
in His bottle our every tear.

It’s not about a certain period,
of suffering and grief
it’s about God’s grace. . . .
bringing broken hearts relief.

It’s not time ~ that will mend,
the wounds of  our despair
it’s believing Jesus will heal
all the pain, that we bear!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:22
 
“But Jesus turned him about,
and when he saw her,

he said, Daughter,
be of good comfort;

thy faith hath made
thee whole.
And the woman was made
whole from that hour.”

King James Version

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.”

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.”
