A Long As We Exist ~

Lord, show us Your paths,
as long as we exist . . .
to Your righteous ways
may we never resist.

Teach us to be still,
until the timing is right
give us the strength
in the battles we fight.

Let us not be impatient,
til in the future we meet
guide each and every step
of our oft stumbling feet.

Keep us from becoming,
ever fearful and afraid
let us not limit You
so we’ll not be dismayed.

Lord, show us Your Ways,
reveal to us Your plans . . .
so we may come to rest
in Your almighty hands!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:7a

Rest in the Lord,
and wait patiently
for him:

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.

Ditching Your Own Plans ~

As you get to know,
who God really is . . .
you’ll ditch your plans
and go after His.

For He has a purpose,
for you and your life
one filled with peace
not of earthly strife.

The more you understand,
just what is God’s will
the more of it to you
He will daily reveal.

For His plans will unfold,
the more of Him you seek
and you’ll see His purpose
the more you are meek.

God has a plan for you,
this you must not doubt
for in you He is working . . .
all good things out!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.

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.

Proverbs 19:21


~ If God Is The Potter ~

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we be more pliable
so He could mold us to be . . .
for Him much more flexible?

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we rest in His hands
so He could mold into us . . .
His divine righteous plans?

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we be more workable
so He could mold us to be . . .
to the truth more adaptable?

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we trust Him for all things
so He could mold into us hope . . .
no matter what life brings.

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we be more bendable
so He can mold us to see . . .
how on Him to be dependable?

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we be the obedient clay
so He can mold into all of us . . .
the truths of His way?

“But now, O Lord, thou art our father;

Starting A New Year ~

I’m starting a New Year,
putting the last behind . . .
for, God has a purpose
in this one for me to find.

I don’t know what it’ll be,
not sure where it’ll lead
but, God will guide me
as His word I read.

Not sure what to expect,
don’t yet know the direction
but, God will steer me
if I give Him my attention.

I don’t know what I will do,
so, I’m praying as I go . . .
for, I know God has a plan
and the way He will show.

I’m starting a New Year,
just like the one before . . .
trusting God with the future
whatever may be in store!

Lord, Remind Me Once Again ~

Remind me Lord again,
why You have me here . . .
come whisper Your plans
into my waiting ear.

Give to me the road map,
charting out the course
teach me to use Your Word
as my navigation source.

Remind me Lord again,
of Your purposes for me
draw out Your blueprint
for my eager eyes to see.

Tell me where I could go,
show me what I should do
instruct me how to put
all my faith and trust in You.

Remind me Lord again,
of Your purposes and plans
be my earthly guide . . .
for my life is in Your hands!

Psalm 31:15


God’s Love For You ~

God’s love for you,
is intense . . .
it is everlasting
it is immense.

For each soul,
He does cherish
He would have . . .
not one to perish.

God’s love for you,
is unconditional . . .
it is by design
divinely integral.

For in the womb,
He knew your frame
and in His book . . .
He wrote your name.

God’s love for you,
is fiercely extreme . . .
for your very soul
Jesus came to redeem!

Jeremiah 31:3

The Lord hath appeared
of old unto me, saying,
Yea, I have loved thee
with an everlasting love:
therefore with lovingkindness
have I drawn thee.

A Future Of Hope ~

A future filled with hope,
is a future worth knowing
for out of it are rivers
of living water flowing.

It’s a future of rest,
joy and elation
found in the well of
eternal salvation.

A future filled with hope,
is a future God planed
for it has been formed
by His very own hand.

It’s a future of peace,
of what is to come
when Jesus returns
to set up His kingdom.

A future filled with hope,
is worth our pursuing
for it’s a future with God
that is all consuming!

God’s Timing Not Mine ~

I have found,
God’s timing’s the best
on this fact
I have come to rest.

For His plan is always,
the only perfect one
so I’ve learned to wait
until He is done.

I have found,
God not to ever push
so I know not to be
in a hurry or a rush.

For He has a hand,
on all He does
so I stay still . . .
simply because.

I have found,
God’s timing to be
perfectly fitting
and suitable just for me!

I Do Not Doubt ~

My God has designs,
He will figure this out
He has a plan for me
in this I do not doubt.

Though I’m concerned,
He knows just what to do
and so my Father . . .
in faith I leave this with You.

My God keeps His promises,
He is forever merciful
everything He does
is perfectly purposeful.

Though I may be worried,
I am not afraid
for I know with God
I’m not to be dismayed.

My God is good,
He’s always fair and just
that is why in Him . . .
I choose to place my trust!

knowing God has a purpose

I don’t know what it’ll be,
don’t know where it’ll lead

Walk Gently My Friend ~

Walk Gently My Friend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Walk gently my friend,
let your faith guide you
into all of God’s truths
no matter what you do.

Walk gently my friend,
trust God and His plan
when you’re not sure
just hold onto His hand.

Walk gently my friend,
let hope lead the way
whenever you’re in doubt
just stop and pray.

Walk gently my friend,
be aware of the darkness
if you happen upon it . . .
never think it is harmless.

Walk gently my friend,
there’s a lot evil out there
be careful lest you may fall
into one of Satan’s snares!

Fruit Off The Vine ~

I am the Vine used with premission from Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I can do nothing without God,
even though He knows I try
but, when I sow on my own
I’m usually left high and dry.

There’s not one thing I can do,
that will last or succeed
for without God’s directions
all my seeds turn into weeds.

I may think I can do it,
for my plans seem so right
but without God’s assistance
there’s always a spiritual fight.

I can do nothing without God,
but, when to His will I resign
I can harvest all of the fruit
right off His one True Vine!

~~~~~~~~

John 15:5
King James Version

” I am the vine, ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me, and I in him,
the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.

Thy Will be Done ~

Prayer-CROSS

Thy will be done Lord,
oh, please not mine
for I only make a mess
with plans of my design.

For I cannot see,
beyond my nose
and all my plans fail
when them I compose.

Thy will be done Lord,
such a simple task
but so seldom . . .
do these words I ask.

But when I do,
ah, what sweet victory
for when Thy will is done
I suffer no injury.

Thy will be done Lord,
for You have the perfect plan
and I never get it right . . .
when my own I try to man!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 11:2
King James Version

“And he said unto them, When ye pray,
say, Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.”

A New Heart ~

create-in-me-a-clean-heart CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord ~ create in me a heart,
one devoted to only You
take away what keeps . . .
You from getting through.

Give me a heart that’s wise,
let me seek You for directions
help me to fully understand
Your tweaks and corrections.

Change what You want,
do whatever You can
so, I may come to know
for me, Your perfect plan.

Renew in me Your spirit,
repair the decay of my sin
cleanse me inside out
till only You reign within.

Give me a heart with a soul,
full of love and affection
let it be a heart that shines
with You, in its reflection.

Lord ~ I give You my heart,
in favor of Your pursuing
for I know You I can trust
in whatever You’ll be doing!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalms 51.10

What Lies Ahead ~

No Eye Has Seen used with permission Doorpost Verses on Face book
I do not know,
what lies ahead
but this I do know
I won’t be mislead.

What I cannot see,
with my own eyes
those of God’s
will make me wise.

God has shown me,
salvation’s truest light
as I read my Bible
I sense His holy might.

Though I have ears,
I can’t hear Him speak
but I heed none less
when His will I seek.

I’ve taken note,
of His divine revelation
and made the Gospels
my true foundation.

I don’t know what God,
has out there for me
but I know if I wait
His glory I will see!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 64:4-5
King James Version

“For since the beginning

that waiteth for him.”

As The Lord Giveth . . .

As the Lord giveth,
He can take it away  . . .
when His plans change
He’ll make another way.

One day your fine,
the next one ~ not so much
when God’s plans change
it’s by His design and touch.

One moment you have,
the next one ~ you have naught
when God’s plans change
there’s a lesson to be taught.

As the Lord giveth,
sometimes He takes it away
when His plans change
your heart too ~ He will sway.

One second it’s all yours,
the next one ~ it’s all gone
when God’s plans change
to Him you will be drawn.

For when God changes His plans,
be willing to change yours too
for He has mightier things . . .
that He wants you to do!

~~~~~~~~~~

Job 1:21

I Didn’t Know!

God Has A Purpose used with permission IBible Verses

I didn’t know back then,
God had a plan for me
I didn’t know the designs
He had in store for me.

I wasn’t lead to the Word,
to see it with my own eyes
I didn’t know I had a future
to this ~ I wasn’t made wise.

I didn’t know to pray,
to ask Him for direction
I didn’t know my ignorance
would cause our separation.

I didn’t know I was to study,
the Bible or to read the Word
and when I went to church
these needs I never heard.

I wasn’t aware He declared,
the path He wanted me on
I wasn’t aware I was lost
til many years were gone.

I wish when I were young,
someone would have told me
there was a path God designed
and a purpose He had for me!
