With All of My Heart and Soul ~

with-all-of-my-heart-and-soul-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord may I love You,
forever to You, may I cleave
may my heart and soul
from Your ways never leave.

May my heart obey You,
diligently may I conform
may my love for You
never grow lukewarm.

May I always trust You,
and the power of Your might
may I draw all of my strength
from the greatness of Your light.

May I remain faithful,
may the joy of my salvation
cause me to be full of hope
filled with peaceful jubilation.

Lord, with all my heart and soul,
I love You more each day . . .
may You continue to guide me
to walk in all your ways!

~~~~~~~

Joshua 22:5

“But take diligent heed
to do the commandment and the law,
which Moses the servant of the Lord
charged you, to love the Lord
your God, and to walk in all his
ways, and to keep his commandments,
and to cleave unto him, and to
serve him with all your heart
and with all your soul.”

Guard My Feet Lord ~

guard-my-feet-lord-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Guard my feet Lord,
keep them from stumbling
help them to be strong
keep them from wobbling.

Guide my feet Lord,
keep them going straight
help them to proceed
through the narrow gate.

Protect my steps Lord,
keep them from tripping
make them sturdy
keep them from slipping.

Lead my feet Lord,
secure my faith walk
help them to march
to the words I talk.

Guard my feet Lord,
let them not deviate
to the world’s ways
let them not acclimate!

~~~~~~~~

1 Samuel 2:9

“He will keep the feet of his saints,
and the wicked shall be silent
in darkness; for by strength
shall no man prevail.”

Seeking God’s Face ~

Seeking God's Face ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, today I’m seeking,
Your loving face
so that Your kindness
my heart can embrace.

I’m going to look for,
the light of my salvation
until it becomes
my minds only fixation.

I’m searching beyond,
the darkness that I see
so trust and confidence
can become a part of me.

I am going to focus in,
on the power You instill
so my mind can learn
to be quiet and ever still.

Lord, today I’m seeking,
Your loving protection
so You can work in me
Your peaceful perfection!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:8

“When thou saidst,
Seek ye my face;

my heart said unto thee,
Thy face, Lord, will I seek.”

Who’s Keeping You Going ~

Who's Keeping You in The Race ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Father, it’s Your strength,
that keeps me going . . .
if it wasn’t for Your power
the towel, I’d be throwing.

For, I am too weak,
haven’t got me the grit
if it were left up to me
I’d probably just quit.

But, in Your mercy,
and by Your loving grace
I’m given the courage
to stay in the race.

For, I ‘m but a sad thing,
when left all on my own
without You besides me
I haven’t got the backbone.

So, I am  giving to You,
all of the credit to succeed
for I know to win this race . . .
to Your will I must concede!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed
about with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight, and the sin
which doth so easily beset us, and let us run
with patience the race that is set before us,”

When Heaven is Silent ~

When Heaven is Silent ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo fromCreationSwap

When heaven is silent,
when it seems God is asleep
when our prayers appear unheard
yet for answers, we beg and weep.

That’s when we must continue,
to trust and to believe
that’s when onto patience
we firmly, need to cleave.

When heaven seems quite,
when it seems God’s not there
when we feel we’re all alone
in our misery and despair.

That’s when grace becomes,
sufficient for the day
that’s when we mustn’t stop
or give up on what we pray.

When heaven seems distant,
when it seems so far removed
when we feel so very helpless
perplexed and confused.

That’s when we need to rest,
up in God’s lofty tower
that’s when we need to wait
for His strength and power.

When heaven seems silent,
asleep, quite and distant
that’s when we need to be
with our prayers consistent!

Luke 18:1

“And he spake a parable unto them to this end,
that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”

Why My Heart Sings ~

My heart shall not tremble,
though I have my fear . . .
my heart shall not shake
for my God, is always near.

My spirit calls on His name,
searches for His face
my spirit takes its cover
in the arms of grace.

My soul shall find rest,
as it learns how to soar
my soul shall be blessed
with His mercy evermore.

I shall trust in the Lord,
His strength I will seek
I shall trust in His power
to help when I’m weak.

To eternity I will abide,
under His mighty wings
forever with Him I’ll dwell
tis . . why my heart sings!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1
King James Version

“He that dwelleth
in the secret place of the

most High shall abide
under the shadow of the Almighty.

Daily Renewal ~

Daily Renewal ~  CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each day I’m being renewed,
I can feel it deep in my soul
every day I’m finding power
to press on towards the goal.

Each day I’m being changed,
I can feel it deep in my heart
every day that God gives me
is an amazing new start.

Each day I’m being transformed,
in my mind everything is new
every day Jesus is showing me
things about Him, I never knew.

Each day I’m being restored,
as I let Jesus work out in me
the mystery and eternal glory
in the things that I can’t see!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2
King James Version

“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.”

Grace Sufficient ~

grace-sufficent-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

My grace is sufficient,
I have all you’ll ever need
when your deficiencies
to Me, you willingly cede.

My strength is in you,
just give me your flaws
I’ll take you by the hand
lead you with My laws.

My power is endless,
I can do so many things
if your imperfections
to Me, you readily bring.

I delight in weakness,
find joy in your fragility
I love when you show Me
your sincere humility.

I’ll make you perfect,
just trust and rest in Me
for sufficient is My grace
I have waiting for thee!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:

for my strength
is made perfect in weakness.

Most gladly therefore will I
rather glory in my infirmities,

that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.”

The Cost of Endurance ~

Track-Running-Race_Sven-Hoppe_i1 from common photo archive

The Bible says to run the race,
with endurance in our steps
to jump over any obstacles
to pass by the risky objects.

This race is not an easy one,
there’s a cost for enduring
most of us can’t stay the course
because sin can be so alluring.

But, we are called to this race,
to be patient and persistent
and in our daily run with faith
we must be pressure resistant.

Before we step onto the track,
we must warm-up our endurance
then work-out any resistance
so we’ll run with God’s assurance.

There will be many roadblocks,
each day we’ll face head on
but, if we trust in God’s power
to them we won’t be drawn.

In this race we’ll have to give up,
things that bring us pleasure
but, when we set them aside
we’ll add to our eternal treasure.

The faithful race is long and hard,
no one said it was trouble-free
but, if we keep our eyes on the goal
we’ll run it filled with joy and glee!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 9:24-25
King James Version

“Know ye not that they
which run in a race run all,

but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.

And every man that striveth
for the mastery is temperate

in all things. Now they do it
to obtain a corruptible crown;

but we an incorruptible.”
