Depressurize ~

When I feel the need,
to depressurize . . .
I shut my mouth
and close my eyes.

For when I am still,
I can decompress
and think about why
I’m so very blessed.

When I feel the need,
to completely unwind
I open up my heart
and shut down my mind.

For when I’m at rest,
God can release
into my soul
His perfect peace.

When I feel the need,
to depressurize . . .
it’s so God’s calm in me
He can internalize!

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:15

And let the peace of God
rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are
called in one body;
and be ye thankful.

My Cup Is Full ~

I’ve got a cup,
it’s fills with more grace
each time I seek
God’s almighty face.

He pours into it,
mercy anew
upon morning’s
dewy debut.

I’ve got a cup,
it overflows
the more God
I get to know.

He dispenses into it,
faith, joy and peace
everlasting assurance
that’ll never cease.

I’ve got a cup,
full of hope’s promise
it warms my soul . . .
with eternal solace!

~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

Psalm 23:5
My cup runneth over.

The Process of Grief ~

Grief is a process,
time it does not know
it keeps its own rhythm
tis why it ebbs and flows.

It swells like a wave,
rising in your chest
you never know when
it will rise or crest.

Grief is a phase,
time means not a thing
it keeps its own beat
tis why it’s so cutting.

It stuns like a blow,
hitting in your face
you never know when
for one you should brace.

Grief is a transition,
time has no meaning
but, we who trust God . . .
know joy will be coming!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:8

“But, beloved, be not ignorant
of this one thing, that one day
is with the Lord as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day.

Psalm 30:5

Weeping may endure
for a night, but joy cometh
in the morning.

No Matter What ~

No matter what,
you are loved
by our Father
up above.

There is nothing,
that you might do
that could make Him
stop loving you.

No matter what,
His back He won’t turn
He will celebrate
when you return.

He is merciful,
full of patience
He is beyond
more than gracious.

No matter what,
your Father loves you
so He sent His Son
to prove how true!

~~~~~~

Romans 5:8

But God commendeth his love
toward us,

in that, while we were
yet sinners,

Christ died for us.

We All Thirst ~

We all thirst,
we all want more . . .
more hope, more love
we all yearn for.

We all need,
spiritual refreshment
we all need in Jesus
to make an investment.

We all thirst,
we all want more
more joy, more bliss
we all hunger for.

We all need,
to come to the well
where in Living Water
Jesus’ Spirit dwells.

We all have,
deep burning desires
but only Jesus’ love . . .
can quench the fires!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 4:13-14

Jesus answered and said unto her,
Whosoever drinketh of this water
shall thirst again:

But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall
never thirst; but the water that
I shall give him shall be in him
a well of water springing up
into everlasting life.

Sounding Brass ~

Charity

Sounding brass,
sharp and shrill
the call to charity
they can’t fill.

They seem to appear,
so strong and wise
but yet so oblivious
to charity’s cries.

Tinkling cymbals,
sound so sweet
but give no charity
to those they meet.

They look sincere,
so meek and small
yet still can’t hear
charity’s needy call.

Sounding brass,
tinkling cymbals
have not agape love . . .
plain and simple!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:1

“Though I speak with
the tongues of men
and of angels,
and have not charity,
I am become as
sounding brass, or a
tinkling cymbal.”

The Thunderous Voice of God ~

If you could hear God’s voice,
you’d hear the power and the might
behind each word and syllable
making the universe take on flight.

You would hear Him tell the sun,
it was time to shine and rise
you could listen as He ordered it
to dip into the darkening skies.

You would hear Him tell the seasons,
what time to start and when to cease
you could listen as they obeyed Him
without rebellion but in peace.

You would hear Him tell the rain,
when it was time to turn to snow
you could listen to their respect for Him
as each little flake His voice knows.

If you could hear God’s voice,
you would know He was in control
not just of the universe . . .
but, of every single heart and soul!

~~~~~~~~~

Job 37:5-6

“God thundereth marvellously
with his voice;
great things doeth he,
which we cannot comprehend.

For he saith to the snow,
Be thou on the earth;
likewise to the small rain,
and to the great rain
of his strength.”

God’s Storehouse ~

God has a storehouse,
filled to the brim
for all those who believe
and trust in Him.

There’s an endless supply,
of mercy and grace
awaiting those who by faith
His eternal love embrace.

God has a storehouse,
He wants to provide
all things that are good
you’ll not be denied.

It’s full of forgiveness,
hope, peace and rest
with the riches and glory
in Jesus you’ll blessed.

God has a storehouse,
He wants for you to share
so other people burdens . . .
you too, may help to bear!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:19

“But my God shall supply
all your need according
to his riches in glory
by Christ Jesus.”

Life-Mending

Life-mending,
behavior altering
the Word of God
is soul shattering.

The truth it reveals,
the light it shines
transforming both
hearts and minds.

Conflict ending,
peace conquering
the Word of God
is spirit-stirring.

The way it shows,
the path it leads
where faith and trust
meets our daily needs.

Life-mending,
pain healing
the World of God
is soul revealing!

~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:16

“All scripture is given
by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof,
for correction,
for instruction
in righteousness:”

Think ~

If we were to think,
before we speak . . .
our tongues we’d hold
more in our cheeks.

If we carefully choose,
what words we use
we’d say things to lift up
not those that bruise.

If we were to ponder,
what we had to say
we’d be more likely
to stop first and pray.

If we were to select,
words comforting
our speech would be
far less confronting.

If we knew just how,
powerful our words were
the more encouragement
in others we’d stir.

If we were to just think,
before we speak . . .
more grace we’d have
the less others we’d critique!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:29

“Let no corrupt communication
proceed out of your mouth,
but that which is good to
the use of edifying, that
it may minister grace
unto the hearers.”

God First ~

God First ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo IBibleverses

Whenever I seek God first,
I cannot believe my eyes
the first thing I can see . . .
is right though Satan’s lies.

When I put God’s kingdom,
straight ahead of me
it open’s up my heart . . . .
to the way I ought to be.

Whenever I put God first,
I gain spiritual insight . . .
everything looks different
in the newness of His light.

Making His righteousness,
in my life a priority . . .
help me to live a life
with meekness and modesty.

When I seek God first,
I see things differently
when I first put God . . .
all things look heavenly!

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

Matthew 6:33

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.”

I Have Got The Power ~

I Can Do All Things ~ Used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I said to the mighty oak,
do not get in my way . . .
for in Christ I’ve got the power
on a still day to make you sway

I said to the stronghold,
take your hands off of me
for in Christ I’ve got the power
to make myself from you free.

I said to the mountain,
get thee out of my sight
for in Christ I’ve got the power
to climb your highest height.

I said to the valley,
you are not too deep
for in Christ I’ve got the power
over your chasm to leap.

I said to the enemy,
you don’t scare me
for in Christ I’ve got the power
to make you run and flee!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13
King James Version

“I can do all things
through Christ
which strengtheneth me.”

No Other Name ~

Names of Jesus by Andrew Haight free photo #3974

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other one we can call on
no other person that can help us
to be eternally drawn.

There’s no other name under heaven,
no other name given unto man
no other person who has for us
the way to salvation’s plan.

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other one with such power
no other person who we can rely on
no matter the given hour.

There’s no other name I know,
no other one who loves us
no other name that spells out
who we can always trust.

There is no other name that shines,
no other who has the light
no other name who will help us
battle the enemy that we fight.

There is no other name like Jesus,
no other name that we can call
no other person who can save us
It’s Jesus ~ or no one at all!

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

Acts 4:12
King James Version

“Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven
given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
