This Hurts ~

Lord this hurts,
even after all these years
this empty, void space
still brings me to tears.

Like a knife,
my heart its cut through
so I’ll continue to give . . .
this pain over to You.

Lord this hurts,
in every single way
it still is painful
no matter what they say.

Like a vise,
my heart its crushed
so onto You my grief
I will continue to thrust.

Lord this hurts,
it’s more than I can take
only with Your strength
can another year I make!

~~~~~~

Psalm 73:26

“My flesh and my heart faileth:
but God is the strength of my heart,
and my portion for ever.”

Afternoon Ponderings~04.18.18~


Despicable Me ~

Lord, when compared to You,
who am I . . .
for, I am but despicable
in Your watchful eye.

I am minuscule,
compared to Your greatness
I am but a vapor
in all of Your grandness.

Lord, when compared to You,
what am I . . .
for, I am pitiful
in Your zealous eye.

I am flawed,
compared to Your pureness
I am ignorant to
Your complete awareness.

Lord, when compared to You,
who really am I  . . .
for, without Jesus I’d never be
perfect in Your eye!

~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 16:9

“For the eyes of the Lord
run to and fro throughout
the whole earth, to shew
himself strong in the behalf
of them whose heart
is perfect toward him.”


Our Bodyguard ~

God is our defender,
our bodyguard
when to His ways
we regard.

God is our anchor,
our safety-net
when in His ways
we are set.

God is our rescuer,
our life-saver
when to His ways
we don’t waiver.

God is our protector,
our safety-shield
when to His ways
we humbly yield.

God is our bunker,
our bodyguard
when after His ways
we follow hard!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 84:11

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield:
the Lord will give grace and glory:
no good thing will he withhold
from them that walk uprightly.”

Conversing With God ~

You can pray to God,
from anywhere . . .
whether you’re outside
or home in your chair.

God is always listening,
His ear is always near
He has the capacity
for every prayer to hear.

You can pray to God,
about everything
He is receptive . . .
to hear anything.

God is always willing,
to listen to your heart
in your supplications
He wants to take part.

You can pray to God,
He loves to converse
you can just let it go
no need to rehearse.

God is available,
morning, noon or night
it doesn’t matter . . .
the time is always right.

You can pray to God,
have a real conversation
whether out in the open
or in quiet mediation!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:17

“Evening, and morning,
and at noon, will I pray,
and cry aloud: and he
shall hear my voice.”

God Is ~

God is . . .

Our Shadow in the heat,
our Calm in the wave
our Refuge in the storm
the Father who can save.

Our Peace surpassing,
our Stillness unreal
our Hope never-ending
the God to whom we kneel.

Our Buckler of Trust,
our Horn of Salvation
our Rock of Strength
the Judge of every nation.

Our Cloud in the Night
our Light unto the Way
our very Present Help
the Potter of the clay.

Our Shield of Faith,
our High Lofty Tower
our Fortress of Peace
the Almighty full of Power!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 25:4

“For thou hast been
a strength to the poor,
a strength to the needy
in his distress,
a refuge from the storm,
a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the
terrible ones is as
a storm against the wall.”

It Takes Work ~

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of studying.

It takes days,
months, even years
to get rid of
our doubts and fears.

It takes praying,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of Bible reading.

It takes faith,
trust and desire
for the Word of God
in us to inspire.

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes a heart . . .
opened to receiving!

~~~~~~~~

John 6:28-29

“Then said they unto him,
What shall we do,
that we might work
the works of God?

Jesus answered and said
unto them, This is
the work of God,
that ye believe
on him whom he hath sent.”

The Mercy of God is Powerful ~

The Mercy of God is potent,
it can loosen every chain
holding one of His children
in the torment of their pain.

The mercy of God is powerful,
it breaks the sinful binds
it restores and it can heal
His children’s hearts and minds.

The mercy of God is delivering,
it weakens wickedness’ grasp
it gives His children strength
from satan’s hold, to unclasp.

The mercy of God is freeing,
it separates good from evil
His children it will save
from the schemes of the devil.

The mercy of God is bountiful,
it’s sufficient and plenteous
His children know intimately
just how much, He is gracious!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 103:8

“The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.”

God’s In Control ~

When I look out at the world,
and all God has created . . .
I see everything He’s made
though this fact often is debated.

But, I will not contend,
with what I know to be true
for the earth and the heavens
Lord, I know belong to You.

When I see all the beauty,
I know it’s not man-made
to all the other theories
I cannot be swayed.

For, I know God is powerful,
and what is His will, will be
though man fights this reality
in the end the truth, all will see.

When I look out at the world,
I see the earth, to us on loan
and I believe with all my soul
God controls it from His throne!

~~~~~~~

1 Chronicles 29:11

“Thine, O Lord is the greatness,
and the power, and the glory,
and the victory, and the majesty:
for all that is in the heaven
and in the earth is thine;
thine is the kingdom,
O Lord, and thou art
exalted as head above all.”

Out of Control ~

In a world,
spinning out of control
I am so glad I gave
Jesus, my heart and soul.

In a world,
filled with so much confusion
I am so very happy
I’ve the Holy Spirit’s infusion.

In a world,
full of panic and chaos
I’m so blessed to have
God, as my peaceful oasis.

In a world,
that is lustful and greedy
I’m so thankful I can bank on
God’s favor, grace and mercy.

In a world,
that will meet a fiery end
I’m so grateful . . .
Jesus, is my eternal Friend!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 20:7-9

“And when the thousand years are expired,
Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

And shall go out to deceive the nations
which are in the four quarters of the earth,
Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle:
the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth,
and compassed the camp of the saints about,
and the beloved city:
and fire came down from God
out of heaven, and devoured them.”

Give Me The Wisdom ~

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
to know what to say
so others I may guide
to the righteous way.

Help me to redeem,
the time allotted me
to help blinded eyes
Your saving light to see.

Oh, Lord keep me seasoned,
let me not lose my flavor
so I may lead others
to also find their Savior.

Help me to choose,
the words that will bring
answers to their doubt
You created everything.

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
help me to inform . . .
so others hearts and minds
You can transform!

~~~~~~

Colossians 4:5-6

” Walk in wisdom
toward them
that are without,
redeeming the time.

Let your speech be
always with grace,
seasoned with salt,
that ye may know
how ye ought to answer
every man.”

When The Thief Comes ~

When the thief comes,
it could be day or night
for all he cares about
is stealing Jesus’ light.

He has up his sleeve,
a life gripping plan
for, he wants to snatch you
right out of God’s hand.

His purpose is clear,
in hell he wants you
for, he’s out to destroy
your heavenly view.

He will discourage you,
he wants you defeated
for, he wants you to feel
you have been cheated.

When the thief comes,
you may be awake or asleep
for, all satan cares about . . .
is stealing Jesus’ sheep!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:10

“The thief cometh not,
but for to steal,
and to kill,
and to destroy:

I am come that they
might have life,
and that they might
have it more abundantly.”

A Living Sacrifice ~

If you want to really find,
God’s will good and perfect
then you must give to Him
your own for Him to correct.

You will need to submit,
your heart, mind and soul
over to the Holy Spirit
so He can take control.

Then He will teach you,
all about holy living
and your whole life to God
soon you will start giving.

If you really long to be,
to God truly acceptable
if you no longer want to be
to the world’s ways susceptible.

Then you must present,
the new life He’s given to you
as a holy living sacrifice . . .
in all that you say and do!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

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.”

I Trust God ~

I trust God,
His Word I heed
I trust Him
for whatever I need.

I trust God,
when I say His name
I trust Him
to remain the same.

I trust God,
for His goodness
I trust Him
for His kindness.

I trust God,
when  I pray
I trust Him
to guide my way.

I trust God,
to give me shelter
I trust Him
to be my helper.

I trust God,
my life to control
for I trust Him . . .
with all my heart and soul!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 9:10

“And they that know thy name
will put their trust in thee:
for thou, Lord, hast not
forsaken them that seek thee.”

Give God Your Worries ~

give-god-your-worries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people worry,
about anything
some get anxious
over everything.

Some wrestle daily,
with their troubles
some nightly fight
with their struggles.

But, those who wait,
on the Lord are still
the worries they have
their peace cannot steal.

They cast their anxiety,
onto Jesus each day
they don’t fret about
things coming their way.

Some people worry,
about anything
but, those who trust God
give Him their everything!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7

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

Omnipotent ~

God is omnipotent,
He is mightily skillful
He does what He wills
He is effectively powerful.

God is more than able,
to do what is impossible
whenever He speaks
He makes all things possible.

God with stretched out arm,
created all living-things
the heavens and the earth
their kingdoms and their kings.

There is not anything,
that God’s will cannot do
even satan and his army
His mightiness can subdue.

God is omnipotent,
He gave to us the power
to overcome the world . . .
right up to the final hour!

~~~~~~

Matthew 19:26

“But Jesus beheld them,
and said unto them,
With men this is impossible;
but with God
all things are possible.”

Peace Perfectly ~

peace-perfectly-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If we’re to have peace,
in our daily life
we need to stay fixed
on God, not our strife.

For, hearts that are stayed,
on God’s tranquility
are the hearts trusting Him
in all totality.

If we’re to have,
peace perfectly
than our minds must seek
Him thirstily.

For minds that are focused,
on God’s serenity
are the minds that believe
in Him entirely.

If we want to have peace,
our eyes need to be
steady on God . . .
not on the things we see!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 26:3

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

The Best Year Yet ~

the-best-year-yet-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

This year is going to be,
the best one yet . . .
for daily with God
through it, I will get.

Each morning I’ll have,
with Him a heart-to-heart
asking for His help
before my day I start.

On Him I will draw,
my strength each hour
so He can fill me with
the Holy Spirit’s power.

Whether I am awake,
or if I am fast asleep
I’ll find rest in knowing
my times are His to keep.

This is going to be,
the best year ever . . .
for, I’ll be trusting God
in all we endeavor!

Psalm 31:15

“My times are in thy hand:
