Afternoon Ponderings~08.18.19


His Sufficient Grace ~

When I’m weak,
and oh so weary
when the road ahead
is long and dreary.

To my Lord,
I cry for more grace
so what’s before me
I can bravely face.

When I’m anxious,
feeling low and down
when my world
comes crashing down.

To my Lord,
I cry for more power
to take me through
every troubled hour.

When I’m tested,
to my very limit
when afflicted
in soul and spirit.

To my Lord,
for more grace I cry . . .
for, He has all I need
to help me get by!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly
therefore will I rather glory
in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.”

Into The Furnace ~

Sometimes the furnace,
we all have go into
so God can refine
restore and renew.

He will light the fires,
to chasten our soul
until we are willing
to give Him control.

He’ll turn up the heat,
till our sin is magnified
so our hearts can be
cleansed and purified.

He’ll add to the fire,
more fuel if needed
so that to His will
our life is heeded.

So if you find yourself,
in the fiery furnace . . .
more precious then gold
you’ll be, when you surface!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 48:10

“Behold, I have refined thee,
but not with silver;
I have chosen thee in
the furnace of affliction.

Good Morning Quote ~ 01.14.18 ~


Be Wary ~

The wilderness can be,
a frightening place
unless we have a sufficient
supply of God’s grace.

For in the wilderness,
we will be tested
and just like Jesus
we too, will be tempted.

When we’re in a place,
we don’t want to be
when alone with danger
we need to get on our knees.

We need to draw near,
to God in prayer
for He knows our adversary
is with us out there.

The wilderness can be,
lonely and scary
and to satan’s tricks
we must be wary!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 1:13

” And he was there
in the wilderness
forty days,
tempted of Satan;

Fully Invested ~

fulyy-invested-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

My heart and soul,
in God are invested
so I call on Him . . .
wherever I’m tested

 I use my Bible,
to help and defend
whatever tempest
that He may send.

I hold onto the truth,
when trials I fight
I know it will lead me
straight into His light.

When storms blow in,
on My Rock I stand
and Anchor myself
right into His hand.

My heart and soul,
are fully invested
tis why I trust God . . .
whenever I’m tested!

Psalm 86:7

“In the day of my trouble
I will call upon thee:
for thou wilt answer me.”

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;”
