Our Wants, God’s Will ~

Our wants,
God’s will
our fears
He stills

Our desires,
God’s plans
our hopes
His hands.

Our longings,
God’s grace
our dreams
His face.

Our trust,
God’s way
our chance
now today.

Our hearts,
God’s will
our souls
He fills!

Ephesians 5:17

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what the
will of the Lord is.

Anxiety’s Trap ~

I felt the trap,
of anxiety
set a snare
on my sanity.

The conditions,
were just ripe
that at my heart
it took a swipe.

I took the bait,
ran away with it
then fell into
a nervous snit.

It took some time,
for me to see
this isn’t where
God wants me.

So I sent my own trap,
for anxiety . . .
now with God’s love
fear had no priority!

~~~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made
perfect in love.

Holy Spirit Power ~

There is a longing,
that runs so deep
a feeling I have
and want to keep.

It fills a need,
it burns a desire
to be filled with
power and fire.

There is a yearning,
that is compelling
a thirst I have for
a deeper indwelling.

It invigorates,
it profoundly provokes
a feeling of strength
it fiercely evokes.

There is a longing,
a deep yearning . . .
to feel the Holy Spirit
power in my life burning!

~~~~~~~

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power,
after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you:

Onward Pressing ~

When your life,
is but a mess
when bombarded
by all the stress.

Let God have,
the weightiness
so He can take
the heaviness.

When your life,
is upside down
when each day
is a letdown.

Let Jesus take,
your despair
so He can have
all your care.

When your life,
has you stressing
into Jesus keep . . .
onward pressing!

~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.

No Greater Love Known ~


No greater love than this,
that Jesus would die for me
no greater Friend . . .
in this world will I ever see.

No greater love will come,
than the one He freely gives
no greater joy . . .
knowing my Savior lives.

No greater love is there,
from a Father to a Son
no greater promise . . .
His will shall been done.

No greater love will I find,
than the one Jesus gives
no greater hope . . .
knowing my sins He forgives.

No greater love than this,
to the world from their King
no greater comfort . .
than the peace He will bring!

~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have
everlasting life.”

No One But Jesus ~

No one but Jesus,
can save you . . .
no one besides
can you go to.

No one else,
can deliver you . . .
no one other
love is this true.

No one but Jesus,
can offer liberty . . .
no one otherwise
can end your misery.

No one else,
just Jesus alone . . .
no one other
your sin’s can atone.

No, not one,
no god made by man
can save you . . .
only Jesus can!

~~~~~~

Psalm 55:16

As for me, I will call upon God;
and the Lord shall save me.

Grouchy-Ville ~

Some people live in,
grouchy-ville . . .
where every day looks
to them all up hill.

They are always in,
a grumpy mood
over every thing
they like to brood.

Some people live in,
happiness-ville . . .
where every day looks
to them all down hill.

They are always giving,
God their worldly care
over everything they go
daily to Him in prayer.

Some people live in,
the mood of their choice
but the best place to dwell  . . .
is in the ville-of-rejoice!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always:
and again I say, Rejoice.

On The Breeze of Serenity ~

Today's Weather Report ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Creation Swap

Today the weather’s calm,
the skies are blue and clear
the wind is all but absent
I have not me a single fear.

The day looks promising,
the sun will be out to warm
by all present indications
I’ll not encounter a storm.

It’s a day for me to have,
some peaceful tranquility
a day for me to find rest
on the breeze of serenity.

I love days like these,
when everything is still . . .
it’s the perfect time to seek
to find for me, God’s will.

Tomorrow there may come,
a storm straight for me . . .
but, from today’s reflections
it will be Jesus whom I see!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:34

“Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the
things of itself. Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof.”

If With Our Mouths?

Love In Action used wth permision IBible verses

If with our mouths we confess,
our faith in God above . . .
then why don’t we show others
unconditional love?

If with our mouths we declare,
Jesus is our salvation
then why with this world
do we still have a flirtation?

If with our mouths we admit,
we’ve been set free from sin
then why does Satan’s armies
still end up with the win?

If with our mouths we profess,
Jesus is the Lord of our life
then why do we still live
with discord, turmoil, and strife?

If with our mouths we assert,
we walk everyday with the Lord
then why in our hearts and minds
isn’t His Word carefully stored?

If with our own lips we worship,
and give honor to our King . . .
then why are we so detached
from the lyrics that we sing?

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 15.7-8

“Ye hypocrites,
well did Esaias prophesy of you,
saying,
This people draweth nigh
unto me with their mouth,
and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.”

Worthy Is The Lamb ~

Oh, worthy is the Lamb,
who died for you and me
deserving of our praise
let His glory bow our knee.

For the Lamb is our salvation,
the One who saves the just
Oh, worthy is the Lamb
who makes our sins, but dust.

Oh, worthy is the Lamb,
all His sheep bless His name
He gave unto us a new life
and took with Him our shame.

For the Lamb came in love,
to save a world full of hate
Oh, worthy is the Lamb
who opened heaven’s gate!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 5:12

“Worthy is the Lamb
who was slain

To receive power
and riches and wisdom,

And strength and honor
and glory and blessing!”

In Christ ~

I can do all things in Christ,
through Him all is made possible
there isn’t a mountain I can’t move
for in Christ I can do the impossible.

I can work all things out in Christ
in His strength, I will not pale
there isn’t a desert I can’t cross
for in Christ I cannot and will not fail.

I can go where ever I want in Christ
with Him I can walk on the sea
there isn’t a storm I can’t beat
for in Christ God’s power lives in me.

I can soar above the clouds in Christ
rise over my fears and doubt
there isn’t a worry that can take me down
for in Christ I can pray them all out.

I can do all things in Christ,
and every one of you can too . . .
you can do the impossible
if you let Him do the possible in you!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13
King James Version

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