Snippet of The Day ~01.22.19~

From the Poem:  God’s Will


A Clean, New Heart ~

 
A clean heart Lord,
create in us
one free of sin
evil and lust.
 
Free of worldliness,
free of selfish greed
free to see You are
everything we need.
 
A renewed Spirit Lord,
put into us
one that will always
in You put its trust.
 
Alert and resistant,
to the lies satan tells
one where Your own Spirit
abides and dwells.
 
A clean heart create,
a right spirit bestow
Lord in our lives
so Your will we may know!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 51:10

“Create in me a clean heart,
O God; and renew a right
spirit within me.”

Sticky Note From God ~06.16.18~


Afternoon Ponderings~02.25.18~


If It Be God’s Will ~

If we ask in faith
then we must believe
if it be God’s will . . .
our requests we’ll receive.

If we ask in faith,
and put aside our doubt
if it be God’s will . . .
our pleas He’ll carry out.

If we ask in faith,
without any hesitation
if it be God’s will . . .
He’ll bless our supplication.

If we ask in faith,
and not have any distrust
if it be God’s will . . .
our prayers He’ll grant us.

If we ask in faith,
if it be God’s will . . .
then our requests to Him
He will indeed fulfill!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:6

“But let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering.
For he that wavereth
is like a wave
of the sea driven
with the wind and tossed.”

Whatever God Wills ~

God can do,
whatever He wills
He can move mountains
or turn them into hills.

God can make,
the largest sea to part
He can soften
the stoniest heart.

God can heal,
the sick and the lame
He can remove
the guilt and the shame.

God can turn,
water into wine
He can change minds
cause them to His align.

Oh, the wondrous things,
God wills to do . . .
oh, the marvelous things
He can do in you!

~~~~~

Psalm 86:10

“For thou art great,
and doest wondrous things:
thou art God alone.”

Sticky Note From God 05.31.17


Do Not Love The World ~

Do not love the world,
nor the things in or of it
for, to your soul . . .
there’s no lasting benefit.

For, the world’s full of pride,
promoting fleshly lust
to its godless customs
you mustn’t ever adjust.

Do not become a part,
of the world’s ways
do not on its sinful desires
let your heart set its gaze.

For, if you do you’ll find,
it’s so easy to conform
as the world’s proven to be
satan’s earthly platform.

Do not love the world,
for it is perishing . . .
there is nothing in it
worth you cherishing!

~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life,
is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.”

Stillness In The Storms ~

stillness-in-the-storm-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The Lord wants us,
in the storm to be still
He wants us to know
for us, this is His will.

He wants us to remain,
quiet on the inside
when every thing else
is troubled on the outside.

He wants us to know,
the battle is His to fight
He wants us to seek
the refuge of His might.

He wants us to have,
peace and tranquility
when all else around us
is full of anxiety.

The Lord wants us,
to have a calm soul
He wants us to know
He’s the One in control!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:10a

“Be still,
and know that I
am God:”

Trust and Be Still ~

Trust and Be Still ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

So many desires,
so many petitions
so many asking
God for provisions.

So many needing,
answer to prayers
so many wondering
if God really cares.

So many wanting,
to know if God hears
so many discouraged
by all of their fears.

So many requests,
to have an answer
so many let doubt
spread like cancer.

So many petitions,
for knowing God’s will
so little confidence . . .
to trust and be still!

~~~~~~~

1 John 5:14-15

“And this is the confidence
that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing according
to his will, he heareth us:

And if we know that he hear us,
whatsoever we ask, we know
that we have the petitions
that we desired of him.”

For Your Name’s Sake ~

For Your Name's Sake ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

For Your name’s sake,
I will follow after You
for the sake of Your name
to Your paths I’ll be true.

For Your name’s sake,
I will go though the fire
for the sake of Your name
I’ll do what You desire.

For Your name’s sake,
I will be humble and meek
for the sake of Your name
Your purpose I will seek.

For Your name’s sake,
I will remain faithful
for the sake of Your name
in hard times I’ll be grateful.

For Your name’s sake,
I will give You my praise
for the sake of Your name
I will follow all Your ways.

A Joyful Life ~

A Joyful Life ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Life is more joyful,
when in God we trust
it is more beautiful
when He’s working in us.

It is more pleasurable,
when we let God lead
it is more bearable
when His laws we heed.

Life is more joyful,
when in God we trust
it is more delightful
when He controls us.

It is more enjoyable,
when God shows the way
it is more gratifying
when to Him we pray.

Life is more joyful,
when we are still
it is more fruitful
when we do His will!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:4-5

“Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee the desires
of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord;
trust also in him; and he
shall bring it to pass.”

Power From the Throne ~

The Source of My Strengh and Power ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Our might comes from God,
it is not of our own . . .
it comes from the power
of the One, on the throne.

He is the only source,
on which we can extract
the power that we need
when Satan’s on the attack.

We do not need to fear,
when on His hand we rely
for His power and strength
He has promised to supply.

God said He’d equip us,
with the strength we need
to plow through all things
when to His will, we heed.

We need not be dismayed,
when trouble comes our way
for God will give us power
to muscle through the day.

Our might comes from God,
our own will only fail us
but oh, what strength we’ll have
when on His ~ we trust!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

Growing in God’s Grace ~

~ CHRISTitan poetry by deborahann ~grow-in-grace 2 IBible Verses

It’s a slow thing,
this growing in God’s grace
it’s a minute by minute thing
we all need to embrace.

It’s a process,
a little here, a little there
it takes a lot of practice
to give Jesus our every care.

It’s a development,
finding God’s rest and peace
it’s quite an accomplishment
not to ever quit or cease.

It takes practice,
this learning to be still
it’s not easy waiting
on knowing God’s will.

It takes itty-bitty steps,
to reach that mountain top
it takes a lot of self-denial
lest half way we would stop.

It’s a slow thing,
this growing in God’s grace
but it sure makes it easier . . .
when His love we embrace!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

On The Breeze of Serenity ~

Today's Weather Report ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Creation Swap

Today the weathers’ calm,
the skies are blue and clear
the wind is all but absent
I have not me a single fear.

The day looks promising,
the sun will be out to warm
by all present indications
I’ll not encounter a storm.

It’s a day for me to have,
some peaceful tranquility
a day for me to find rest
on the breeze of serenity.

I love days like these,
when everything is still . . .
it’s the perfect time to seek
to find for me, God’s will.

Tomorrow there may come,
a storm straight for me
but, from today’s reflections
it will be Jesus whom I see!

“Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the

I Sit ~

BE STILL BY BRANDI WOOD FREE PHOTO #18120

Sometimes I sit,
in humble silence
I wait on the Lord
as I seek His guidance.

I say not a thing,
give to Him my mind
knowing His will for me
is there for me to find.

Sometimes I sit,
in quiet solitude
till I have for Him
the right attitude.

I tune the world out,
His voice, I listen for
I give Him my heart
to search and explore.

Sometimes I sit,
humbled by His love
and in silence I wait . . .
for a word from above!

Seek ~

Seek and you shall find,
whenever you’re in doubt
turn to the Good Book
to find the answers out.

For in the Bible you’ll see,
what God wants of you
seek and you shall find
His light shining through.

Seek and you shall find,
love that is everlasting
when in uncertain times
all else is so contrasting.

Come to the throne of grace,
God is always the same
seek and you shall find
the power in His name.

Seek and you shall find,
the answers to your prayers
then find rest in knowing
Jesus has all your cares.

For Jesus came to save you,
from daily fear and strife
seek and you shall find
for yourself eternal life!

~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:13
King James Version

“And ye shall seek me,
and find me,

when ye shall search
for me with all your heart.”

Surrender Your Heart ~

Surrender Your Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

That searching in your heart,
the hunger that you feel
can only be satisfied . . .
when you know God’s will.

A life that is surrendered,
that meets His demands
will find divine direction
when left in His hands.

Maybe your life you’ve made,
a complete and utter mess of
but don’t limit what God can do
with His unconditional love.

When Jesus has your heart,
His good pleasure works in you
and the Holy Spirit’s power
will turn you into something new.

That hunger in your heart,
the thirst that you feel
only Jesus can satisfy . . .
only God’s mercy can fill!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:6
King James Version 

“Blessed are they which do hunger
and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.”

Take Me Deeper Lord ~

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
no more just skimming the surface
no more being shallow or superficial
no more just giving You lip service.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
take me to the center of Your life
no more lack of spiritual power
take me out of my self-imposed strife.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
take me to where You’re in control
no more self-centered desires
take me to where I surrender to You all.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
take me to the depth of Your heart
no more not trusting or doubting
take away from me what keeps us apart.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
take me to where we are immersed
no more wandering or roaming around
take me to where I’ll put You first.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
deeper more, deeper yet, deeper still
take me all the way down into You
until I rise knowing Your perfect will!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 92:5

“O Lord, how great are thy works!
and thy thoughts are very deep”

The Pill of Bitterness ~

The Pill of Bitterness ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Bitterness is a caustic pill,
that at times we all swallow
causing a pool of self-pity
where misery loves to wallow.

At first the acid taste,
doesn’t bother us too much
for we feel justified in our pain
and to our anger we still clutch.

As we take our daily dose,
sweet revenge turns a little tart
but we don’t seem to notice
the spite budding in our heart.

We take our correct measure,
each morning when we awake
for we are not willing to forgive
and aren’t wanting to forsake.

The remedy for bitterness,
can’t be found in any pill . . .
but you can find a cure for it
when forgiveness you instill!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:31
King James Version

” Let all bitterness,
wrath, anger, clamor, and

evil speaking be
put away from you,
with all

malice. “

The Peace of God ~

Everyday becomes a struggle,
when from God’s Word we stray
every hour is more miserable
when we don’t believe and pray.

Everything looks impossible,
when His hope is not there
every problem looks bleaker
when we don’t trust in His care.

Every worry seems unbearable,
when His mercy we don’t claim
every concern is more insufferable
when we don’t call upon His name.

Every mountain seems higher,
when we climb it all alone
every valley is a little deeper
when we don’t seek His throne.

Everyone who goes about,
seeking to do their own will
will never know the peace
that only God can instill!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 29:11
King James Version

“The Lord will give strength unto his people;
the Lord will bless his people with peace.”

Knowing God’s Will ~

There is a deep longing,
an ache that I feel
it eats away at my soul
and my peace it steals.

I try to concentrate,
but my mind can’t stay still
for all I want to know Lord
what is Your perfect will.

The desire to know Your ways,
to follow without a thought
creeps into my heart
tying my mind into a knot.

Why, oh why dear Lord,
is it so hard for me to know
the direction and the path
You would have me to go?

I read from the Scriptures
word by word, I devour
till I am consumed
with the Holy Spirit’s power.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 32:8-9
King James Version

” I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way
which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with
mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, or as the
mule, which have no understanding: whose
mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest
they come near unto thee.”

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
