The Sun On The Horizon ~

Give me the sun on the horizon,
a sherbet color morning sky above
give me a clear, cloudless, warm day
then you’ll know why with God I’m in love.

Give me the shade of a willow tree,
the Good Book for me to read
give me a sweet tea to sip on
and I will have close to all I need.

Give me a creek’s mesmerizing flow,
chirps coming from a robin’s nest
give me green pastures with my Lord
well now you can picture the rest.

Give me the sound of children playing,
the laughs and giggles of youth
give me the peace of a summer’s sigh
found around a lemonade booth.

Give me the soft breeze off the ocean,
the sun painting its dazzling set
give me the coolness of the moonlight
and I’ll be close to heaven as I can get.

Give me a day in the radiant Son shine,
let me bask in God’s glorious love
give me a warm summer day to reflect . . .
on the splendor God’s sends from above!

Seasons ~

I’ve suffered through seasons,
with pain too much to bear
periods of ongoing grief
where tears became my prayer.

I’ve sailed though seasons,
with carefree, untroubled days
weeks, months and even years
singing nothing but my praise.

I’ve struggled through seasons,
with doubt propelling me
to question why I believed
in the things I couldn’t see.

I’ve strolled through seasons,
with faith so unshakeable
my hope and trust in God
was clearly unbreakable.

I’ve been through many,
different kinds of seasons
and through them all I found
God had for each a reason!

God Has A Time For Everything ~

God has a time,
for everything
and for every one
new season’s He brings.

There’s a time of peace,
and a time of bleakness
a time of spiritual health
and a time of sickness.

There’s a time to rise up,
and a time to regress
a time of fearfulness
and a time to onward press.

There’s a time of hope,
and a time of testing
a time of great faith
and a time of wrestling.

There’s a time to praise,
and a time to mourn
a time to rejoice
and a time to be reborn.

For every thing,
God has a season
and it’s not up to us . . .
to doubt His reason!

The Season’s of Life ~

seasons-of-life-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The season’s of life,
blow in like the wind
some are slow-moving
others like a whirlwind.

But, I have found,
no matter the season
whatever blows my way
God has for it, a reason.

The season’s of life,
have their highs and lows
the cause behind them
only God really knows.

But, I have found,
seasons are a blessing
urging me into the goal
to just keep pressing.

The season’s of life,
blow in and out
some like a whisper
others with a shout.

But, I have found,
each season sent to me
keeps me trusting God
for what I cannot see!

Retired People ~

retired-people-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people when retired,
are just plain bored
but I find myself . . .
getting closer to the Lord.

Some people with their time,
don’t know what to do
but each year I read . . .
my Bible through and through.

Some people sit all day,
in front of the television
but I just close my eyes . . .
so heaven I can envision.

Some people never leave,
the comfort of their home
but I’m always looking . . .
for lost sheep on the roam.

Some people when retired,
see no real meaningfulness
but my life just gets fuller . . .
with God’s purposefulness!

God Has His Reasons ~

Could it Be ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

When God takes His time,
He always has a good reason
for, a lot of growing is done
while in the waiting season.

As we start to anticipate,
the answer to our prayer
God begins to show us
why all things aren’t always fair.

When God takes His time,
at getting back to us
for us it is not the time
to lose our faith and trust.

He wants us to keep believing,
with all our heart and soul
how everything is always
in His infinite control.

When God takes His time,
it’s up to us to keep praying
for good things happen to . . .
those who can bear, the waiting!

A Time for God ~

A Time for God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A time for patience,
and for some rest
a time to let God . . .
do what is best.

A time for endurance,
to run the good race
a time to stop running
and abound in His grace.

A time for serenity,
in the midst of the buzz
a time to find harmony
as God always does.

A time to listen,
and to be still
a time to wait
for His perfect will.

A time for calmness,
when composure is gone
a time for quietness
and to God, be drawn.

A time to trust,
without any fear
a time for the Lord
to bring us near.

A time for the Spirit,
to lead from above
a time to linger
and abide in His love.

A time for silence,
and an open heart
a time for God only
nothing keeping us apart.

A time to lie down,
in pastures green
a time to be protected
under His wing.

A time to know,
He won’t leave or forsake
a time for God . . .
we all need to make!

The Winter Soul ~

The winter of the soul . . .
is a cold and lonely season
when it doesn’t understand
the intention or the reason.

The bitter winds that come,
chills it to the marrow
with each gust that blows
it feels like a poison arrow.

The freezing rain and sleet,
seizes up its every tear
they become like icicles
encased with all its fear.

The winter soul can’t take,
the ills, the weight, the loss
unless the soul is willing
to keep clinging to the cross.

For it is in this icy season,
the soul can find His warmth
and nestle in the comfort
of what God will bring forth.

So, if the battered soul,
is to survive this frosty time
it must be willing to soar
and over each blizzard climb.

Winter in the soul . . .
is a cold and lonely season
but it can find great peace
knowing God has His reason.

God has His Reasons

green-plant-budding free photo

For everything, there is a season
for every trial, God has a reason

a time to be tested, a time to be still
a time to hurt, a time to heal

a time to fail, a time to grow
a time to doubt, a time to know

a time of suspicion, a time of belief
a time of pain, a time of relief

to everything, there is a season
for every worry, God has a reason

a time to be weak, a time to be strong
a time to be right, a time to be wrong

a time to be sorry, a time to be glad
a time to be happy, a time to be sad

a time to be anxious, a time to rest
a time to release, a time to digest

to everything, there is a season
for every battle, God has a reason

a time to fight, a time to make peace
a time to let go, a time to reach

a time to lose, a time to win
a time to hold on, a time to give in

a time to turn away, a time to follow
a time to trust, a time to wallow

to everything, there is a season
for every soul, God has a reason

a time to die, a time to be reborn
a time to rejoice, a time to mourn

a time to squelch, a time to express
a time to hold back, a time to confess

a time of death, a time to live
a time of shame, a time to forgive

to everything, there is a season
for every man, God has a reason!
