God Changes Us ~

God changes us,
from the inside out
dispels the fear
alleviates the doubt.

He gives a new heart,
full of hope and trust
so His very own Spirit
He can put into us.

God changes us,
from the outside in
till we no longer
 desire to commit sin.

He gives us faith,
in grace and grace alone
so we may trust Jesus
our sins will atone.

God changes us,
so He can abide
in the new Spirit ….
we now have inside!

~~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 11:19

And I will give them one heart,
and I will put a new spirit within you;
and I will take the stony heart
out of their flesh, and will give them
an heart of flesh:

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not of
yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man
should boast.

Let Jesus Fight For You ~

Jesus will fight for you,
just give Him your battle
He knows without Him
you’re weak and fragile.

All you have to do,
is pass your cares along
then wait and be still
till He makes you strong.

Jesus will fight for you,
all you have to do is ask
then all of your troubles
onto Him you must cast.

Soon you will have,
peace filling your heart
keeping your mind
from unraveling apart.

Jesus will fight for you,
on this you can be sure
for the battle is His . . .
not yours alone to endure!

~~~~~~~~~~

Exodus 14:14

“The Lord shall fight for you,
and ye shall hold your peace.”

1 Peter 5:7

“Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.”

Sticky Note From God ~03.23.19~


Sticky Note to God ~03.23.19~


My God Promises ~

My God is bigger,
than my fear
for my God promises
to always be near.

My God is greater,
than my dread
for my God promises
me daily bread.

My God is mightier,
than my plight
for my God promises
to lead with His light.

My God is bolder,
than my doubt
for my God promises
I’ll not go without.

My God is stronger,
than my concern
for my God promises
He will return!

~~~~~~

Jeremiah 32:27

“Behold, I am the Lord,
the God of all flesh:
is there any thing
too hard for me?”

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 my 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.”

I Will Strengthen You ~

I Will Strengthen You ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I will strengthen thee,
how simple this sounds
but, it can be so hard
when our troubles abound.

For, often we fail to take,
a hold on God’s promise
perhaps because in us . . .
there’s a little doubting Thomas.

I will strengthen you,
how easy this would be
if our pride we’d let go
His strength we could see.

But, we are too busy,
keeping our ego’s inflated
that God’s strength and power
often becomes deflated.

I will strengthen thee,
is God’s promise to us
if only we would . . .
in Him place our trust!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed;
for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand
of my righteousness.”

Call Out to God ~

Whenever your spirit,
is overwhelmed within
when you feel your troubles
you are drowning in.

Call out to God,
tell Him about your fear
then watch as to you
He draws close and near.

Whenever you feel,
you’re about to meltdown
when you feel hard pressed
by your cares all around.

Call out to God,
before you fall apart
He will come and release
His peace into your heart.

Whenever your mind,
is weighted down
by all those worries
you carry around.

Call out to God,
when you’re distressed
and with His presence
you will be blessed!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 120.1

“In my distress
I cried
unto the Lord,
and he
heard me.”

Get a Grip on Fear ~

Whenever fear begins,
messing with my head
when it fills up my heart
with anxiety and dread.

It’s when I go to Jesus,
to still the storm inside
soon the waves of fear
calmly start to subside.

Whenever fear grips me,
squeezing my very soul
when with it I battle
to take back control.

It’s when I go to Jesus,
for that stillness exceeding
soon the trembling I feel
starts peacefully receding.

Whenever fear creeps in,
just as it starts to invade
it’s when I go to Jesus . . .
for He makes me not afraid!

~~~~~~

Luke 8:23-25

“But as they sailed he fell asleep:
and there came down a storm of wind
on the lake; and they were filled
with water, and were in jeopardy.

And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish.
Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water:
and they ceased, and there was a calm.

And he said unto them,
Where is your faith?
And they being afraid wondered,
saying one to another,
What manner of man is this!
for he commandeth even the
winds and water, and they obey him.”

He Restores My Joy ~

He restores my soul,
from the daily fatigue
He repairs my nerves
my fears, He relieves.

He restores my heart,
from its heaviness
He removes the pain
the hurt, the weariness.

He restores my faith,
when weakness sets in
He resets my trust
to follow after Him.

He restores my belief,
when there is doubt
He reinstates in my life
what His truth is about.

He restores my joy,
of a future sighting
He returns my watch
for that eye twinkling!

of thy salvation; and uphold
me with thy free spirit.”

When My Heart is Troubled ~

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
I gratefully go to God
with my pleas and prayers.

When my heart is faint,
when my mind has unrest
I pray for God’s peace
upon my first request.

When my heart is heavy,
when my mind has doubt
I pray ceaselessly believing
God will work things out.

When my heart is weary,
when my mind’s full of fear
I pray asking my Father
to drawn me close and near.

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
at Jesus’ feet I leave them
with my thankful prayers!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by
prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let
your requests be made
known unto God.”

There’s Nothing God Can’t Do ~

therss-nothing-too-hard-for-god-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is nothing too hard,
for God to do . . .
there isn’t anything
He can’t perform  for you.

There isn’t a place too tight,
God can’t get you out of
there isn’t a problem so deep
He can’t help you rise above.

There isn’t a relationship,
God can’t save and heal
there isn’t a broken heart
He can’t make again to feel.

There isn’t a single fear,
God can’t make go away
there isn’t one little doubt
He can’t begin to sway.

There isn’t a spiritual crisis,
God can’t alleviate
there isn’t a physical issue
He can’t regenerate.

Nothing is too hard for God,
there’s not anything He can’t do
all He needs to have . . .
is faith and trust from you!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 18:14

“Is any thing too hard for the Lord?

Gripped With Fear ~

gripped-with-fear-chrisian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Gripped with fear,
worry and doubt
can’t shut anxiety
in your mind out?

Then you need God,
to release His power
so your every fear
you can overpower.

Seized by nerves,
enveloped in troubles
clinging to your fears
with white knuckles?

Then you need to let go,
of all of your cares
and give to Jesus
your burdens to bear.

If you want to shake,
fears tightening grip
seek God and from it . . .
you will easily slip!

Armed With Courage ~

armed-with-courage-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Armed with courage,
I pray for everything
in faith, I ask God
without wavering.

I’ll not get tossed,
on the waves of fear
for prayers can make
muddy waters clear.

Equipped with strength,
God’s Word is my shield
as I go out each day
on prayer’s battle field.

I’ll put on my armor,
in all of its entirety
I’ll not be doubt driven
for I trust God entirely.

Armed with prayer,
brave and courageous
my faith in God . . .
makes me dangerous!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:6

“But let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering. For he that
wavereth is like a wave of

Mountain Climbing Faith ~

Mountain Climbing Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m climbing this mountain,
and I’m not going to stop
my confidence in God . . .
will get me to the top.

I’ll tackle every obstacle,
I will confront every fear
my absolute trust in God
will be my safety gear.

I’ll  get over my doubt,
I’ll get by the obstructions
my faith in God’s Word
will provide the directions.

I’ll combat the terrain,
I’ll move each hindrance
my eternal hope in God
will give me the assurance.

I’m climbing this mountain,
I will not fall or drop
for God promised me . . .
a reward at the top!

“Let us hold fast the profession
of our faith without wavering;

Cares Unbound ~

Cares Unbound ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some people carry,
the world’s weight
for on their shoulder
their troubles grate.

Some people worry,
about everything
for on their minds
fear twists and wrings.

Some people stress,
over everyday life
for on their hearts
grinds daily strife.

Some people suffer,
from depression
for on their souls
is guilt’s impression.

Some people carry,
their burdens around
but if  they’d turn to Jesus
their cares, He’d unbound!

Cast Your Cares Upon Jesus ~

Cast Your Cares Unto Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Cast your cares upon Jesus,
direct your soul His way
give Him all your worries
find true peace for the day.

Hold and keep not a burden,
let Him ease the strain
give Him all of your fears
and His peace you will gain.

Cast your concerns upon Him,
your every want and need
to His leading and guiding
let your heart be willing to cede.

Grasp and hold onto Jesus,
let not pride get in your way
for Satan is alive and well
and wants to ruin your day.

Cast your cares upon Jesus,
is something you must do
for Jesus has promised . . .
to take your cares from you!

Prayer Make’s a Difference ~

Prayer Makes A Difference ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When our prayers,
get no response . . .
in prayer we need
to remain ensconced.

We mustn’t ever give up,
or from prayers bail out
they’ll make a difference
if we have no doubt.

We cannot lose heart,
in prayer we must persist
then fear and worry
we’ll be able to resist.

We mustn’t be weary,
or faint in our prayers
we need to remember
Jesus wants our cares.

When with our prayers,
God is slow to respond
expect an answer . . .
though it be prolonged!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 18:1

“And he spake a parable
unto them to this end,
that men ought always
to pray, and not to faint;”

When Trials Blow Our Way ~

When Trials Blow Our Way ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When trials blow our way,
on the winds of stress
when we start to feel
tense and hard pressed.

That’s when we need to go,
to the One who’ll ease
the whirlwind we are in
into a tranquil breeze.

When adversity slams,
on the door of our trust
when anxiety’s clamor
starts to overwhelm us.

That’s when we need to go,
to the Savior of our soul
and give to Him our fears
so He can take control.

When trials blow our way,
as worry slams about
that’s when we need Jesus . . .
to chart for us new route!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:26

“And he saith unto them,
Why are ye fearful, O ye
of little faith? Then he

and there was a great calm.”

Hold On ~

Ship Wrecked ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I once was like a ship,
you could call me a wreck
when storms came my way
I’d hit hard on the deck.

I could not ride out,
the worries they brought
fear and apprehension
left me anxious and fraught.

Under the harsh conditions,
I would fold under the pressure
so severe were my nerves
no turbulence could I weather.

But, now I don’t sweat,
the turmoil life brings
for I’ve learned to trust Jesus
in and for all things.

I once was a wreck,
just like a sinking ship . . .
but now I hold onto my faith
so overboard I won’t flip!

which some having put away concerning

A Verse A Day ~

Your Word My Light

A Verse a day,
will keep the devil away
a Word or two
will help restore and renew.

A Scripture thought,
will help when distraught
a Bible study plan
will lead and command.

A Verse a day,
will keep fear at bay
a Word or two
will power you through.

A Scripture learned,
will help when concerned
a Bible nearby
will keep Jesus close by.

A Verse a day,
is a daily must . . .
for it will direct you
in God, to always trust!

Taking It To Jesus ~

God_Wants_To_Talk_To_You free photo

Whenever I’m unhappy,
feeling down and out
I take my thoughts to Jesus
talk to Him about my doubt.

I tell Him the way is hard,
things haven’t been so easy
my heart’s frequently broken
my stomach is often queasy.

I let Him know of my cares,
the worries on my mind
how I seem to bump into . . .
difficulties of every kind.

But, then He reminds me,
He came to give me peace
though it does not mean
my troubles will ever cease.

As I turn over in my mind,
my worries and my cares
they just seem to vanish . . .
the more with Jesus I share!

In You Lord ~

In You Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m learning to be content,
in whatever comes my way
because my Lord ~ my Savior
I trust You more every day.

Though my problems mount,
escalate and swell
it’s in You my Lord
I choose to wait and dwell.

As the enemy starts to roar,
rumbling for my defeat
it’s in You my Lord
I find my true retreat.

When my fears begin to rise,
tossing me all around.
it’s in You my Lord
I stand on solid ground.

While the storm rages,
reaching its height and peak
it is You ~ my Lord
my soul will always seek!

~~~~~~~~~

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
