Smooth Sailing ~

Today there’s smooth sailing,
the water’s calm and still
it is such a gorgeous day . . .
to just sit back and chill.

Got nothing on my mind,
my heart seems to be at rest
my worries are but few
I am feeling at my best.

As I go about my morning,
I forget to say my prayers . . .
but, for now it seems okay
for I haven’t me many cares.

The sun outside shines brightly,
calling me to come and read
but, I leave my Bible on the table . . .
for I haven’t any pressing need.

Suddenly there comes a breeze,
stirring up the peaceful water
and I can almost hear God say . . .
don’t drift too far ~ My daughter!

Hebrews 2:1

Therefore we ought to give
the more earnest heed to the
things which we have heard,
lest at any time we should
let them slip.

Wanderer’s Wandering ~

Wanderer’s wandering,
roaming around
looking and searching
for what can’t be found.

Rootless and fruitless,
wanderers they are
faithless and godless
in their travels afar.

Roving and drifting,
wanderers they be
smug and ungrateful
from righteousness flee.

Nomadic problematic,
wanderers go off
leaving and parting
as God they scoff.

Wanderer’s wandering,
God wants you home
He wants your steps
to no longer roam.

Return returners,
Oh, thou to Me
come back and revisit
My love for thee.

Arrive and survive,
Oh, thou My roving rover
I will forgive your heart
a thousand times over!

~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will
heal their land.

Drifting Away ~

Drifting Away~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Feel like your drifting,
pulling away . . .
feel like your paddling
making no headway?

Setbacks and defeat,
sinking you down
feel as if you’ll never
find safe, solid ground?

Loss of your focus,
has your spirit adrift
feel like your drowning
with each emotional shift.

Worry and anxiety,
floating in your head
fear and doubt
causing you dread?

Feel like your drifting,
hope slipping away . . .
then you need to let Jesus
be your anchor each day!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 6:19

“Which hope we have
as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into
that within the veil;”

Are You Drifting ~

Are You Drifting ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Are you drifting,
in a sea of uncertainty
have you given up . . .
on your eternal destiny?

Are you windblown,
shaped by circumstance
drifting in the whirlwind
of luck and happenstance?

Are you drifting,
into a sea of self-destruction
are you being swept away
by sin and corruption?

Are you in a fog,
in the haze of dismay
have you from God . . .
slowly drifted away?

Are you drifting,
in the sea of soulful regret
have you forgotten . . .
Jesus is your safety net?

“Therefore we ought to give
the more earnest heed to the

lest at any time we should
let them slip.”

Sticky Note to God 11.06.15

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 11.06.15 ~


My Every Footstep ~

Where are You used with perrmission CreationSwap

Lord, You know of my wanderings,
all the places I have been
You know of all my goings out
the times I’d come back in.

You know my every footstep,
each footprint I have made
saw the ones that flourished
foretold the ones that would fade.

You know of all my ramblings,
the drifting that took me away
You know to every place I roamed
the reasons why I would stray.

You know my every footfall,
the demons I had to chase
You know of each wayward step
yet from me, You never hid Your face.

Instead, You collected up my tears,
wrote my name in Your book
for You foresaw the day I’d return
and had the patience that it took!

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

Psalm 56:8
King James Version

“Thou tellest my wanderings:
put thou my tears into thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?”

Wandering Wanderers ~

Wandering Wanderers ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Wandering wanderers,
roaming around
looking and searching
for what can’t be found.

Rootless and fruitless,
wanderers they are
useless and careless
in their travels afar.

Roving and drifting,
wanderers they be
looking and looking
but they can’t see.

Nomadic problematic,
wanders go off
leaving and parting
going off to scoff.

Wandering wanderers,
God wants you home
He wants your steps
to no longer roam.

Return returners,
Oh, thou to Me
come back and revisit
My love for thee.

Arrive and survive,
Oh, thou my roving rover
I will forgive your heart,
over and over!

Deuteronomy 27:18

King James Version

“Cursed be he that maketh
the blind to wander out of the way.
And all the people shall say, Amen”
