If You Want To Be Transformed ~

if-you-want-to-be-transformed-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If  you want to be transformed,
your mind you must renew
worry, disbelief and fear
you’ll need to put behind you.

Thoughts of faith and trust,
must be your way of thinking
putting confidence in God
should be your only reasoning.

Any unbelief or doubt,
you will need to get rid of
instead your mind must dwell
on God’s peace and perfect love.

You’ll need to think obedience,
if you want to know God’s will
your stubbornness and pride
you’ll need to silence and still.

If you want to be transformed,
then you must be teachable
into the depth of your heart
God must be reachable!

~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed
to this world:
but be ye transformed
by the renewing
of your mind,
that ye may prove
what is that good,
and acceptable,
and perfect,
will of God.”

Fears Erased ~

fears-erased-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When God takes me,
into His warm embrace
I feel overwhelmed
by His love and grace.

For, they soothe my soul,
just like a healing balm
brings to my mind peace
makes my heartbeat calm.

When God takes me,
under His mighty wings
I know I can accept
whatever life brings.

For when I’m protected,
by God’s powerful hand
I know the storms I face
I’ll be able to withstand.

When God takes me,
into His warm embrace
it’s so all my fears . . .
His love can erase!

~~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us
the spirit of fear;
but of power,
and of love,
and of a sound mind.”

Grace To The Humble ~

grace-for-the-humble-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When trials blow,
me to the ground
when my cares
take me down.

Before I rise,
back to my feet
I pray to God
my needs to meet.

When storms blow,
through my door
when my worries
take me to the floor.

Before I get,
to my legs back
I pray to God
for the grace I lack.

For, in my life,
to God I’ve found
to humble myself
when I am down!

James 4:6

“But he giveth more grace.
Wherefore he saith,
God resisteth the proud,
but giveth grace
unto the humble.”

Prayer Prepares Us ~

Prayer changes,
our thoughts
keeps our eyes on
satan’s plots.

Prayer prepares us,
to hold on fast
keeps our faith
sober and steadfast.

Prayer strengthens,
us with power
supplies courage
to the final hour.

Prayer keeps us,
fervently watchful
helps us to remain
fiercely faithful.

Prayer changes,
our thinking
it readies our eyes
for the twinkling!

Life Isn’t Fair ~

life-isnt-fair-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God’s purposes are bigger,
than all of our troubles
He has His reason
for each of our struggles.

God uses our problems,
to temper our hearts
so His grace and mercy
in them He can impart.

God uses our worries,
to help us focus on
why He sent into this world
His own begotten Son.

God uses our burdens,
so we can learn to be
dependent on Jesus
not in what we can see.

God’s purposes are grander,
than our every care . . .
that’s why in the Bible
you won’t hear, life is fair!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things
work together for good
to them that love God,
to them who are the called
according to his purpose.”

The Threshold of Fear ~

the-threshold-of-fear-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Today I felt fear,
slither across my threshold
I knew right away
it wanted to take a foothold.

It pounded on my heart,
thumped upon my soul
it clamored for my mind
so it could take control.

I felt its anxiety,
I sensed its panicking
I could clearly hear
its hissing babbling.

So, I took it by the neck,
and gave it a shake
for I knew it was satan
that old, slimy snake.

Today I felt fear,
slither across my threshold
so I met it with God’s power
and from it, got the foothold!

Fear Naught ~

fear-naught-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Throughout the Bible,
we’re told not to fear
nor to be dismayed
for God is always near.

We’re told not to be,
fearful or discouraged
that in the Lord Himself
to always be encouraged.

We’re told not to worry,
God will not fail us
no matter what man does
in Him to always trust.

We’re told not to tremble,
nor to be faint-hearted
we’re told He will finish
whatever He has started

We’re told to our prayers,
God will bend His ear
that we needn’t doubt
our pleas He won’t hear.

We’re told perfect love,
casts out every fear . . .
that God will not forsake
but to Him, keep us near!

~~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 31:6

“Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not, nor be afraid of them:
for the Lord thy God, he it is
that doth go with thee; he will
not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

Turning Fear into Faith ~

turning-fear-into-faith-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, turning fear into faith,
is possible to do . . .
if only we would leave
our troubles with You.

Then we will not be,
anxious or dismayed
we will have no reason
to ever be afraid.

We need to learn,
in You we can trust
that all of our concerns
You will take from us.

Then we will not worry,
or be full of trepidation
nor will our hearts feel
a hopeless desperation.

Lord, turning fear into faith,
we can all do . . .
but first we must take
our every care to You!

If Perfect Love ~

if-perfect-love-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If perfect love,
casts out all fear
then why do we feel
danger is always near?

If perfect love,
dispels the dread
then why do we feel
despair in our head?

If perfect love,
makes us unafraid
then why do we feel
so ever dismayed?

If perfect love,
has not a worry
then why do we feel
our cares we must carry?

If perfect love,
does what it says it can do
then why don’t we Jesus . . .
just give our fears to You?

~~~~~~~

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.”

Tunneling Through ~

Tunneling Through ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When up to your ears,
with problems and fear
before they swallow you up
ask God to draw you near.

Ask Him to give you,
the courage you need
so from fear’s sinkhole
you can be freed.

When life gets too hard,
to make your way though
before you start to panic
ask God what you should do.

He’ll give you the strength,
to burrow your way out
and keep you from getting
buried in fear and doubt.

When worry buries you,
up to your ears . . .
let Jesus help you tunnel
through all your fears!

~~~~~~~

“So that we may boldly say,
The Lord is my helper,
and I will not fear what
man shall do unto me.”

With God Nothing is Too Hard ~

Nothing is Too Hard ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

What is impossible,
for me and you
to God it’s not
too hard to do.

There is no promise,
God can’t fulfill
there is no fear
He can’t distill.

There is no prayer,
God can’t answer
there is no storm
He can’t anchor.

There is no problem,
God can’t resolve
there is no sin
He can’t absolve.

There is no place,
God can’t send revival
there is no enemy
He can’t bridle.

What is too hard,
for each one of us
is much easier . . .
when in God we trust!

~~~~~

Genesis 18:14

“Is any thing too hard for the Lord?
At the time appointed I will return
unto thee, according to the time of

the heaven and the earth by thy great

is nothing too hard for thee:”

When Calm Eludes You ~

When Calmness Eludes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When calm doesn’t come,
when peace is far away
I stop what I’m doing
and to my Father, I pray.

Prayer is my refuge,
from the dread inside me
it’s where I find comfort
from the fear, I can’t see.

When I am anxious,
when my nerves are a mess
I pray without stopping
to rid myself of distress.

I put my trust in God,
till I’m no longer afraid
His unfailing love keeps me
from becoming dismayed.

When calmness eludes you,
when peace seems so far away
the best thing you can do . . .
is stop everything and pray!

Don’t Worry, Be Trusting ~

worry-fades-away ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~

Don’t worry about tomorrow,
don’t fret about today
just keep your eyes on Jesus
let Him take your cares away.

Don’t become weary,
don’t become faint and weak
just keep your eyes on Jesus
make sure He’s the first you seek.

Don’t stress about anything,
don’t tense up about your life
just keep your eyes on Jesus
let Him deal with all your strife.

Don’t become fearful,
don’t become full of doubt
just keep your eyes on Jesus
let Him work your faith out.

Don’t be anxious for tomorrow,
don’t stress about anything
just keep your eyes on Jesus
and be sure to pray for everything!

This Too ~

This Too ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

This too I know,
will soon be gone
so to my faith
I will hold on.

I will stay strong,
I won’t be weak
for God’s grace
I’ll hourly seek.

His grace helps me,
to stick things out
for it calms my fears
dispels my doubt.

It buoys my trust,
dispels my nerves
it shows me worrying
does not, Him serve.

This too I know,
shall soon end and pass
until it does  . . .
I’ll not let fear trespass.

Victory Over Fear ~

If We're Not to be Fearful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
If we’re not to be fearful,
if we’re not to be afraid
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel overwhelmingly dismayed?

If we’re not to despair,
if we’re not to be weak
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel so hopelessly bleak?

If we’re not to be concerned,
if we’re not to worry about today
then why do we sometimes . .
feel so helpless anyway?

If we’re not to be frightened,
if we’re not to have a single care
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel so emotionally threadbare?

If we’re not to be fearful,
if we’re not to be dismayed
then why are we not trembling . . .
with joy, instead of being afraid?

~~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Be Not Dismayed ~

Be Not Dismayed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Wherever you go,
God is with you
whatever you do
He is there too.

You can’t see Him,
but He sees you
He knows the way
for you to pursue.

Whatever you fear,
God will ease it
whatever you dread
God will conquer it.

He’ll impart strength,
when you are weak
He’ll pass on courage
when you are meek.

So, be not fearful,
neither be afraid
for with God we need
not to be dismayed!

~~~~~

Your Shepherd to The End ~

My Shepherd ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Verses

If the Lord is your Shepherd,
then nothing you will lack
you’ll have nothing to fear
He’ll always have your back.

He’ll guide you in the valley,
lead you to the mountain top
He’ll show you where to go
warn you when you to stop.

If the Lord is your Shepherd,
you’ll have a place to rest
for, to your every need
He’ll be constantly abreast.

He’ll daily provide you,
with power and grace
to His truth and His ways
your heart will embrace.

If the Lord is your Shepherd,
He’ll refine and restore
so that you will always find
your way back to His door.

He’ll renew you each day,
with joy and in His love
by raining down on you
His mercy from above.

If the Lord is your Shepard,
you’ll always have a retreat
for, He will be your refuge . . .
until the day that you meet!

Faith Rises ~

Faith Rises ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Faith rises,
above our fears
calms our nerves
dries our tears.

Faith overcomes,
every obstacle
makes all things
truly possible.

Faith conquers,
all our doubts
with triumph cheers
and joyous shouts.

Faith defeats.
our worst enemy
fights off the devil
trounces his army.

Faith rises,
above our concerns
calms our worries . . .
till Jesus returns!

Unpluckable ~

Hand-of-JESUS

When you’re in a valley,
not sure what way to go
when the road ahead . . .
isn’t one that you know.

Look for Jesus’s light,
to show you the way
listen for His voice . . .
you’ll not be lead astray.

When you’re in the fire,
weak from all the heat
when feeling overwhelmed
before you suffer defeat.

Follow your inner man,
and you’ll be able to hear
the promise of Jesus . . .
you haven’t anything to fear.

When Satan comes calling,
and you have no way out
when sin tempts you . . .
and causes you to doubt.

Turn to Jesus and ask Him,
for the strength to withstand
then rest in knowing no one
can pluck you from His hand!

IF ~

I Trust ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Life is full of if’s,
doubts and uncertainties
urgent situations . . .
turning into emergencies.

We can never know,
what the future brings
yet we still fret and worry
over unforeseen things.

Life is full of if’s,
impossibilities and fears
disasters and tragedies
that bring us all to tears.

But IF we were to stay,
focused in on Jesus . . .
anxiety over the future
would not take a hold of us.

For Jesus is our hope,
in the midst of urgency
and when we trust in Him . . .
there’s no real emergency!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:3-4

“What time I am afraid,
I will trust in thee.

Sea Worthy ~

Sea Worthy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Today upon the sea,
I went out for a sail
the day was perfect
as far as I could tell.

The skies were sunny,
the water was clear
giving me no reason
to have me any fear.

There I was floating,
on the sea of tranquility
relaxing in the calm
of the water’s serenity.

The breeze was gentle,
while I drifted about
it gave me no cause
to worry or to doubt.

Then suddenly I saw,
a squall in the distance
and I knew right away
I’d need some assistance.

So, to my loving Savior,
I began to pray . . .
for more faith in the blast
barreling my way.

For, I knew by myself,
I’d face a stormy journey
if Jesus didn’t make me . . .
in Him ~ sea worthy!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:24-25

“And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea,
insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves:
but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying,
Lord, save us: we perish

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

  Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.”

Let God’s Peace Repair ~

 Let God's Peace Repair ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Do not be anxious,
do not let worry eat away
rather let the love of Jesus
bring calm to you today.

Do not be restless,
do not let fear consume you
rather in everything in prayer
ask God what you need to do.

Do not be fretful,
do not let nerves wear and tear
rather with praise and thanksgiving
give to Jesus your every care.

Do not be worried,
do not let doubt rule the day
rather with pleas and petitions
ask God to show you the way.

Do not be anxious,
do not suffer from despair
rather into your heart and mind
let God’s peace restore and repair!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing

all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”
