Jesus My Anchor ~

Jesus my Lord,
my Rock, my Anchor
You give me strength
my fears, You conquer.

Though the night be,
dark and stormy
I trust in Your might
to make the journey.

Jesus, my Hope,
my Comfort, my Peace
You give me faith
my doubts You cease.

Though the day be,
chaotic and lawless
my trust in You
remains flawless.

Jesus, my Rock,
my Lord, and Savior
my sureness steadfast . . .
my soul’s Anchor!

Which hope we have as an

God’s Most Perfect Love ~

God’s most perfect love,
there is nothing better
to help us with our ties . . .
to the world to sever.

It takes our worst fears,
casts them away
fills us with confidence
for judgment day.

God’s most perfect love,
brings eternal elation
gives us the faultless joy
of everlasting salvation.

For without it we’d be,
bound straight for hell
where for all eternity
our souls would dwell.

God’s perfect love,
took away our punishment
renders us before Him . . .
blameless and innocent!

~~~~~~~

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.

I am Not Afraid ~

I am not afraid,
of the evil things I see
even my own death
will not put a scare in me.

For, You my Lord,
are always near by
and will always be
until the day I die.

I am not dismayed,
by the valley ahead
for I believe through it
I will be Spirit lead.

For, when the time comes,
for me to go on home
it’ll be the happiest day
I have ever known.

I am not afraid,
I have nothing to fear
for Jesus my heart
will comfort and cheer!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me.”

His Perfect Peace ~

 ~ His Perfect Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I struggle
with crippling doubt
it’s when I don’t . . .
first seek God out.

When I think,
I am not really free
it’s when the devil
is messing with me.

When I battle,
with high anxiety
it’s when I don’t . . .
trust God’s authority.

When I feel,
I am all alone
it’s when my eyes
are off His throne.

When my fears,
to God, I release
it’s when I have . . .
His perfect peace!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 26:3

“Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.”

Our Burden Bearer ~

anxiety-500x500 used with permissions

I got me many worries,
an awful lot of cares
but, on my soul . . .
they don’t wear and tear.

When fears come my way,
I simply toss them aside
for, in my mind . . .
I don’t allow them to reside.

Trials may consume me,
fiery ones leap and bound
but, in my spirit . . .
they don’t stay around.

When I’m facing Satan,
I lose not one single hair
for, in my heart . . .
I don’t let His tactics scare.

I got me many concerns,
that could cause me terror
but, I give my every worry . . .
to my Burden Bearer!

Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer

Life’s Burdens ~

isaiah-41-10-hand-of-god-god-says used with permission Darrell Creswell

When difficulties come at you,
and troubles are all around
when worried about life’s burdens
and their hurdles you can’t bound.

That’s when you need to take a grip,
hold on to God’s righteous hand
for, Jesus won’t let you fall
and in His strength you will stand.

When problems can’t be solved,
and you have nowhere else to turn
when others try to help you out
but your fears they can’t discern.

That’s when you need to take hold,
of God’s mighty right hand
for, Jesus won’t let you down
all your anxieties He’ll understand.

When life hands you a lemon,
but you don’t like lemonade . . .
when all those around you
fail to come to your aid.

That’s when you need to give up,
and rest in His loving hands
for, Jesus wants you to grasp
He has for you, His own plans!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10
King James Version

“Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

Everything that bothers me,
I give to my Burden Bearer

He’d be my trouble sharer!

The Prayers of Tears ~

Tear are Prayers Too used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, I cannot find the words,
to express to you my fears
all I have to offer You
are the bounty of my tears.

Upon each and every droplet,
falling down to You like rain
are all my worldly hurts
the reasons for my pain.

Drop by drop they reflect,
the words that cannot flow
from a heart beaten down
by life’s piercing blows.

Lord, sometimes when I cry,
they’re my prayers just in tears
as I weep for the day when .  .  .
You’ll erase away my fears!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4
King James Version

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.”

A Thousand Anxieties ~

anxiety-500x500 used with permissions

A thousand anxieties,
more than a million prayers
for the relief from our pain
the weight of our cares.

A thousand worries,
too many fears to number
so many disturbing thoughts
robbing us of our  slumber.

A thousand burdens,
some too heavy to bear
a multitude of troubles
leave their wear and tear.

A thousand concerns,
a million more to come
but with faith in Jesus
we shall overcome!

Released ~

Casting your Anxiety by Doorpost Verses used with permission

Whenever I’m anxious,
and life has me by the hem
I loosen up and I let go . . .
casting everything onto Him.

I simply sit back,
and let myself unwind
I relax in the knowledge
He’ll give me peace of mind.

Whenever I’m restless,
tense from my concerns
I call upon the Lord
till my stress He overturns.

I take a deep breath in,
then I let it all out
and before you know it
He takes away my doubt.

Whenever I’m troubled,
by my worries and cares
I take them to the Lord
in my thoughts and prayers.

I shut my eyes slowly,
and give to Him my ears
as I listen to His spirit
I’m released from my fears!

Strength for The Asking ~

Strength For the Asking ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In times of trouble,
remember Jesus is there
strength for the asking
hope for every care.

All the fears you have,
He will cause to cease
beneath the endless worry
lays a bounty of His peace.

His mercy and His grace,
are bestowed upon us all
He inclines His loving ear
to each distressing call.

His eyes are always on us,
He hears our every prayer
for He has made a promise
our burdens He would bear.

There’s no need to doubt,
put your anxiousness aside
rest in the knowledge
all your needs He’ll provide.

In times of trouble,
in times of pain and sorrow
He is our strength for the day
our hope for each tomorrow!

Matthew 6:26

yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.
Are ye not much better than they?”

Jesus Is Always There!

Through all the pain and sorrow,
the ones we own, the ones we borrow
the ones we make, the ones we bear
Jesus is always there!

Within all the grief of our tears,
the ones of love, the ones of fears
the ones we cause, the ones we share
Jesus is always there!

During all the trials and tribulations
the ones of hope, the ones of frustrations
the ones we conceal, the ones we declare
Jesus is always there!

In all the uncertainties that lay ahead,
the ones we know, the ones we dread
the ones we risk, the ones we dare
Jesus is always there!

Throughout the storms of this life,
the ones of calm, the ones of strife
the ones we cede, the ones we fare
Jesus is always there!
