Jesus Knows ~

Jesus knows what’s going on,
in your life right now . . .
He knows to get through
you are not sure just how.

But, you must trust Him,
to show you the way out
by giving to Him . . .
all your fears and doubt.

Jesus, knows that you need,
answers to your prayers
He knows you are burdened
by the weight of your cares.

But, you must give to Him,
all of your desperation
so He can set you free . . .
from your trepidation.

Jesus knows what’s happening,
He understands your needs
but, you must have the faith
for even the sparrows He feeds!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

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

Matthew 6:26

Behold the fowls of the air:
for they sow not, neither do
they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.
Are ye not much better than they?

Draw To God Near ~

When my heart pounds,
with anxiety and fear
it only calms down . .
as I draw to God near.

For the closer I get,
to where He is . . .
I am reminded
my dread is all His.

When my nerves jitter,
with doubt and worry
they only ease up . . .
when with God I tarry.

For the more time,
with Him I spend
I can see His light
just around the bend.

When my I am feeling,
shaky and dismayed
to God I close in . . .
so not to be 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.

No Wonder We Need ~

Life is full of steep hills,
valleys plenty deep
no wonder we need . . .
a Good Shepherd’s keep.

With all the uncertainty,
each day we must face
no wonder we need . . .
a sufficient dose of grace.

Our fears can be many,
our worries limitless
no wonder we need . . .
God’s mercy measureless.

With all the challenges,
we daily go through
no wonder we need . . .
God our hearts to renew.

Life is full of storms,
with winds so unexpected
no wonder we need . . .
to run until perfected!

The Depth of God’s Mercy ~

When I am knee high,
in grief and sorrow
when I am anxious
about each tomorrow.

I look at the span,
of God’s mercy . . .
instead of the extent
of my worry.

When I am waist deep,
in the vast unknown
when fear’s grip
clinches my backbone

I look to the depth,
of God’s grace . . .
instead of the expanse
of the dark space.

When I am as low,
as I can possibly go . . .
I look to the favor
God on me bestows!

~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come
boldly unto the throne
of grace, that we may
obtain mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need.

Fraught With Worry ~

Often we find our hearts,
are fraught with worry
our thoughts turn into . . .
a nervous, swirling flurry.

We fret and we fuss,
over what we can’t control
until fear becomes . . .
embedded into our soul.

Often we find our minds,
are overwhelmed by dread
our thinking gets clouded . . .
by the anxiety in our head.

We get so caught up in,
our fearful trepidation
until fear’s spiny fingers . . .
takes over our circulation.

Often we find our hearts,
letting worry into our mind
keeping us from God’s peace
to discover or to find!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

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

And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds through Christ Jesus.

Matthew 21:21-22

 


Be Anxious For Naught ~

Be anxious for naught,
let nothing cause you dread
let go of that worry
filling up in your head.

Be concerned for zilch,
let Jesus take your care
let go of all that you fear
so your anxiety He can bear.

Be nervous for nada,
let Jesus have your doubt
let go of those problems
that are stressing you out.

Be burdened for zip,
let your troubles not alarm
let go of that heavy load
place it all in Jesus’ arms.

Be anxious for nothing,
is Jesus’ command to us
His peace He wants to give . . .
if we’d just let go and trust!

In Jesus’ Loving Arms ~

Lord, come comfort me today,
I need to feel Your arms
shielding and protecting me
from all that hurts and harms.

Take away this unrest,
filling my heart and my soul
come to me with Your arms
ready to soothe and console.

Lord, come give me solace,
peace and encouragement
today in Your loving arms
let me find nourishment.

Remove my anxiety,
relieve me from my fear
in Your waiting arms
draw me close and near.

Lord, come comfort me today,
hold me in Your embrace
renew in me the hope . . .
of Your undying grace!

Matthew 11:29-30

“Take my yoke upon you,

So Many Needs ~

So many needs,
so many cares
causing His sheep
so much despair.

When will they seek,
when will they come
to the One who will
bear every one?

So many problems,
so many concerns
causing His sheep
thoughts to churn.

When will they know,
when will they find
Jesus is waiting
to comfort their mind?

So many doubts,
so many questions
causing His sheep
bouts of depression.

When will they see,
when will they hear
Jesus is wanting
to calm their fear?

So many defeated,
so many gone astray
so many we can lead . . .
back to Jesus today!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;
we have turned
every one to
his own way;
and the Lord
hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”

Prayers For You My Friend ~

God put you my friend,
on my heart today
He told me for you
He wanted me to pray.

So I went to Him,
while on my knees
and sent up for you
theses heartfelt pleas.

Oh, Father whatsoever,
is Your perfect will
till my friend knows
help them to be still.

Take away their fears,
guard their heart and mind
so that on this journey
your peace they can find.

Be with them always,
do not leave their side
let the Light in Your Word
be their constant guide.

Give them Your power,
the courage to press on
let them claim victory
in the name of Your Son.

Help them not to get tired,
in the battle they must fight
let them feel energized
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

Oh, Father I believe,
you listen to our prayers
and so I come to You  . . .
with my friend’s earthly cares!

~~~~~~~~~

James 5:16

“Confess your faults one to another,
and pray one for another,

Faith Isn’t A Feeling ~

Some days I just plain feel,
my faith isn’t with it
sometimes I don’t feel
led by the Holy Spirit.

But, then God reminds me,
faith isn’t about how I feel
it’s about trusting Him . . .
so His truths He can reveal.

Some days I feel anxious,
caught up in my fear
some days it’s so hard
to feel God is really near.

But, then God reminds me,
faith isn’t about how I feel
faith is believing Jesus . . .
my anxieties He will heal.

Some days my heart,
feels so burdened down
sometimes I don’t feel
or sense any hope around.

But, then God reminds me,
faith is not about a feeling
faith is about my future
and all He will be revealing!

of things hoped for,

May God’s Peace Rule ~

May God’s peace,
rule your mind today
may to its quieting lull
your heart give way.

May you experience,
God’s tranquility
may it fill you with
grace and humility.

May you relish,
the settled quietness
may you soak up
the sedated peacefulness.

May you encounter,
God’s perfect stillness
may you receive
His stilling calmness.

May the peace of God,
ease your worried mind
may in your heart
His serenity you find!

God Knows Our Potential ~

God knows our potential,
before we even do
to our capabilities
He has a pristine view.

God sees our weakness,
He knows our every fear
He understands we need
the way to be made clear.

God sees our strengths,
He knows our abilities
He has eternal insight
into all our possibilities.

God sees our doubt,
He knows we’re human
He knows we need His might
to get us up and movin’.

God knows our potential,
He sees what we’re made of
He knows all we need is . . .
His guidance from above!

~~~~~~~~~~

Judges 6:12-14

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him,
and said unto him, The Lord is with thee,
thou mighty man of valour.

And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord,
if the Lord be with us, why then is all
this befallen us? and where be all his
miracles which our fathers told us of,
saying, Did not the Lord bring us up
from Egypt? but now the Lord hath
forsaken us, and delivered us into
the hands of the Midianites.

And the Lord looked upon him, and said,
Go in this thy might, and thou shalt
save Israel from the hand of the
Midianites: have not I sent thee?”

The Spirit of Truth ~

The Spirit of truth,
God gave to you
He is your guide
for all that you do.

He is full of power,
He’s mighty and strong
He’s full of light
He’ll not lead you wrong.

The Spirit of truth,
is all-wise, all-knowing
He’ll intercede for you
with His groaning.

He is everywhere,
ever-present, ever-near
He will give you courage
to face your every fear.

The Spirit of truth,
will keep pursuing you
until you see the light
of all things true!

~~~~~~

John 16:13

“Howbeit when he,
the Spirit of truth,
is come, he will guide you
into all truth: for he
shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever he shall hear,
that shall he speak:
and he will shew you
things to come.”

The Fear Factor ~

the-fear-factor-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Fear plugs the heart,
stops the flow of peace
it clogs up the calm
only God can release.

Fear hijacks the hope,
we need to be still
it robs the soul
of knowing God’s will.

Fear rips the faith,
right out from under us
it cripples the mind
of its eternal sureness.

Fear disables the joy,
of our salvation
it shuts down the bliss
of our future elation.

Fear stifles the peace,
of a mind that’s sound
it zaps the power
that in God we found!

and he heard me,

from all my fears.”

Mountain Climbing ~

mountain-climbing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We all have mountains,
we need to move or propel
but, our doubt in God
we must first dispel.

Some of them are so tall,
we get dizzy just thinking
how we’re to reach the top
without falling or fainting.

Some of them are so rugged,
moving them seems impossible
that we forget with God
all things are truly possible.

Some of them are so steep,
they seem life threatening
that we can’t get beyond
our fear and trembling.

We all have mountains,
we need to move or get over
but, first our fear and doubt
to God, we must handover!

~~~~~

Mark 11:23

“For verily I say unto you,
That whosoever shall say unto
this mountain, Be thou removed,
and be thou cast into the sea;
and shall not doubt in his heart,
but shall believe that those
things which he saith shall
come to pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith.”

God Is Our Shelter ~

god-shelters-us-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God is our shelter,
in the storms of stress
He brings comfort
to us in our duress.

God is our retreat,
in the storms of sorrow
He gives us the joy
to face the morrow.

God is our fortress,
in the storms of fear
He brings peace
by drawing to us near.

God is our high tower,
in the storms of grief
He gives us strength
brings our hearts relief.

God is our shelter,
in all the storms of life
He brings the calm
in the midst of our strife!

“I will say of the Lord,

In My Golden Years ~

in-my-golden-years-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

In my golden years,
my faith is mightier
my hope grows steadier
my trust gets sturdier.

The body gets weaker,
the mind is foggier
the memory grows poorer
the recollection’s fewer.

My beliefs root deeper,
my strength gets stronger
my doubts move further
my fears get lesser.

The eyes get dimmer,
the knees are creakier
the spine gets stiffer
the muscles softer.

God gets bigger,
the world gets smaller
the Lord grows nearer
my worries calmer.

In my golden years,
I am more aware . . .
God’s still concerned
about my welfare!

No Wonder ~

No Wonder ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Life is full of storms,
valleys plenty deep
no wonder we need . . .
a Good Shepherd’s keep.

With so much uncertainty,
every day that we face
no wonder we need . . .
a sufficient supply of grace.

Our fears can be numerous,
our worries limitless
no wonder we need . . .
God’s mercy, measureless.

With various challenges,
we daily go through
no wonder we need . . .
God’s strength, each day anew.

So often we’re discouraged,
lost in all the confusion
no wonder we need . . .
the Holy Spirit’s infusion.

Life is full of storms,
winds so unexpected
no wonder we need to keep . . .
our eyes, heavenly directed!

Give Me Your Yoke ~

MY BELOVED BY JOHN EMERY FREE PHOTO #9352

Come unto Me, My beloved,
give Me your yoke to bear
loosen from your shoulders
the burdens that on you wear.

Give unto Me, all your troubles,
nothing is too difficult for Me
take off those chains that bind
and keep you from being free.

Give unto Me, all your worries,
place them here at My feet
rid yourself of the constraints
that ties you up in defeat.

Give unto Me, your heavy load,
place it right here in My hand
work loose that which binds you
and experience My perfect plan.

Come unto Me, My beloved,
there is nothing that I can’t do
take off the yoke that keeps away
the love that I have for you!

Matthew 11:28-30

“Come unto me,
all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

for I am meek and lowly
in heart: and ye shall
find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.”

Shipwrecked ~

Shipwrecked ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
When the wind’s been taken out,
from under the sails of your life
when overcome by the high seas
causing you so much strife.

When the boat you’re in,
springs a slow and steady leak
when the waters you’re treading
make you feel faint and weak.

When the ship you’re steering,
turns into a total wreck . . .
when the water’s start to rise
just below your neck.

When all you have left is a dingy,
but the paddles can’t be found
when your longing for the safety
that comes on solid ground.

When you’re ready to give up,
before you abandon ship . . .
turn the helm over to Jesus
and He’ll keep you in His grip!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 27:31

Except these abide in the ship,

Just Pray ~

Just Pray ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In everything in life,
no matter how big or small
the trivial and the considerable
let Jesus have them all.

Take time to talk with Him,
not just in your prayers
share no matter the time of day
your worries and your cares.

Then quickly give them to Him,
and wait for Him to answer
with praise and thanksgiving
watch as your burdens transfer.

For, Jesus will take them all,
His peace will come your way
if in everything, you don’t forget
to talk to Him and just pray!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests

be made known unto God.
And the peace of God,
which passeth

all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds

through Christ Jesus.”

Save


Keep Looking Up ~

Things looking a bit dark,
can’t see His light
getting tired of battling
the same old fight?

Spinning in circles,
going round and round
can’t get ahead
feeling more than down?

Can’t catch a break,
no matter what you do
feel as if the whole world
is fighting against you?

Well, you’re not alone,
others feel just like you
but as Christians we know
what we must do . . .

Look up to the heavens,
put your life in God’s hands
for Jesus is your one Friend
who truly understands.

He’s looking out for you,
believe it or not . . .
and if that’s not the truth
then our faith is for naught.

So, don’t throw in the towel,
don’t you ever give up
for this too shall pass
so, just keep looking up!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2
King James Version

“Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him
endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand
of the throne of God.”

From Anxiety to Peace ~

From Anxietry to Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be anxious for nothing,
let not anything cause you dread
let go of the worry
that is filling up in your head.

Be concerned for not a thing,
let Jesus take your every care
let go of all that you fear
and your anxiety He will bear.

Be nervous for naught,
let not your problems stress you out
let go of all your tension
and give Jesus your every doubt.

Be not burdened for anything,
let your troubles not cause alarm
let go of that heavy load
and place it in Jesus’ awaiting arms.

For when we’re overly anxious,
when we’re excessively concerned
our faith and trust we push away
and His peace we leave unturned!
