High Upon A Rock ~

When tragedy comes,
catching you off guard
when the aftermath of grief
hits you cold and hard.

Know that God is near,
to the brokenhearted
and the crushed in spirit
He will keep safe-guarded.

When from out of nowhere,
disaster strikes you down
and it affects are felt
by every one around.

Know that God is a shelter,
a safe harbor and refuge
someone you can turn to
whenever under a deluge.

When tragedy and disaster,
come to your door and knock
know God will lift you up
and set you high upon the Rock!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 34:18

“The Lord is near
to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed
in spirit.”

Psalm 27:5

“For he will hide me
in his shelter in the
day of trouble; he will
conceal me under the cover
of his tent; he will
lift me high upon a rock.”

Truly ~

Truly ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I know from experience,
God sends us heartbreak
and through it I’ve learned
He truly doesn’t forsake.

Though at the time,
we may think God isn’t near
it’s at that very moment . . .
we must give Him this fear.

For, in the midst of tragedy,
Jesus is also there
and our pain and sorrow
He truly wants to bear.

He takes our sorrow,
and give us more grace
so that our tomorrows
we can joyfully face.

I know from experience,
the breaking of a grieving heart
and now I know truly . . .
nothing can shake my faith apart!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 147:3

“He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.”

God Heals the Broken Heart ~

God keeps doing wonders,
with broken hearts . . .
He can still heal and mend
all the injured parts.

But, you must give Him,
your heart as it breaks
each little piece of it
and all the little flakes.

God can perform miracles,
on hearts that are damaged
He can undo the impact
where grief has ravaged.

But, you must go to Him,
with a heart surrendered
so He can do the repairs
without being hindered.

God continues to do wonders,
miracles He still performs
for the heart that is broken
He mercifully transforms!

“He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.”

Sticky Note to God 05.26.17


He Restores My Joy ~

He restores my soul,
from the daily fatigue
He repairs my nerves
my fears, He relieves.

He restores my heart,
from its heaviness
He removes the pain
the hurt, the weariness.

He restores my faith,
when weakness sets in
He resets my trust
to follow after Him.

He restores my belief,
when there is doubt
He reinstates in my life
what His truth is about.

He restores my joy,
of a future sighting
He returns my watch
for that eye twinkling!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 51:12

“Restore unto me the joy
of thy salvation; and uphold
me with thy free spirit.”

We All Have A Past ~

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all cringe . . .
at the memories they bring.

We all need to find,
God’s favor and grace
we all need God’s mercy
so the past we can face.

We all have feelings,
of resentment and ill-will
we all wince . . .
at how others make us feel.

We all need to find,
God’s healing peace
we all need God’s mercy
so our pain He can release.

We all have suffered,
the heartache of rejection
we all recoil . . .
when the past we mention.

We all need to find,
God’s way to forgiveness
we all need God’s mercy
so we can be rid of bitterness.

We all have a past,
filled with painful things
we all need God’s mercy
and the healing that it brings!

Hebrews 4:16

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help
in time of need.”

In God’s Training Room ~

in-gods-training-room-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

In God’s training room,
there’s a lot for us to learn
for, He wants to teach us
He’s with us at every turn.

We wrestle with the pain,
weep long into the night
so God can show us
the joy in His morning light.

We confront our sorrow,
the source of our fears
so God can collect for us
in His bottle all our tears.

We struggle with our past,
we scramble with its strife
so God can help us see
the temperance of this life.

In God’s training room,
He’s teaching us to know
all thing work for good
to them who love Him so!

~~~~~~~

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.”

Take It To The Cross ~

Prayer-CROSS

Whatever is your worry,
whatever is your care
take it to the cross . . .
and just leave it there.

For at the cross,
Jesus is waiting
to take every burden
on you, that’s weighing.

Whatever has you crying,
whatever has you sad
take it to the cross . . .
if you do, you’ll be glad.

For at the cross,
joy is yours to find
and the true peace of God
will fill your heart and mind.

Whatever is your burden,
whatever is your grief
take it to the cross . . .
whenever you need relief.

For at the cross,
Jesus will meet you there
and onto Himself
your burdens He will bear!

~~~~~~

“Come unto me, all ye that
labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.”

You Have Blessed Me ~

You Have Blessed Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

To My Friend  . . .

You have blessed me,
with words of encouragement
you have provided me
with spiritual nourishment.

You have helped me,
through my pain and grief
you have brought me
refreshment and relief.

You have given me,
hope in a dark place
you have revealed to me
the truth about real grace.

You have comforted me,
when all was too much to bear
you have reassured me
just how much for me you care.

You have been there for me,
my side you didn’t leave
you have consoled me . . .
my sorrow, you did relieve.

So thank you my friend
for blessing me . . .
with your very presence
though you, I cannot see!

~ Thank You Jesus ~

God’s Steadfast Love ~

God's Steadfast Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

When sorrow greets me,
upon the break of day
I know God’s love . . .
will take the pain away.

For His loving-kindness,
when I am heartbroken
is filled with the promise
I’ll not be left forsaken.

When I’m discouraged,
before depression sets in
I think about God’s love
living steadfast within.

For His kind-heartedness,
is my souls retreat . . .
where my faith and trust
is made in Him, complete.

When my head I lay down,
at the end of the day . . .
I sing praises to my Lord
for the love He sent my way!

~~~~~~~

“By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me
– a prayer to the God of my life.”

What If ~

~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

What if there was no pain,
no grief, no more misery
no tears left to collect
no more human agony?

What if there was no hunger,
no thirst, nor starvation
no want or need left unmet
no dying from prostration?

What if there was no murder,
no killing, nor slaughter
no more innocent victim
no soul so cold and bitter?

What if there was no hatred,
no disgust, nor loathing
no heart so full of evil
no more darkness looming?

What if there was no pain,
no sorrow, no grief, no tear
what if Jesus never promised
to come again and live here?

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

“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.”

Like Spring ~

always-spring-in-gods-love used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, I lift up my heart,
pour Yours into mine
give me perfect peace
joy real and divine.

Fill me with love,
the hope that You bring
let Your grace permeate
like the aroma of Spring

Send me Your light,
complete in me Your will
guide and lead me along
streams calm and still.

Take from me my grief,
the throb in my pain
wash away my sorrow
like an early, Spring rain.

Cover me with mercy,
tender and sweet
until the day . . .
when we finally meet.

Lord I lift up my heart,
pour Yours into mine
let us intertwine . . .
like a  Springtime vine!

Hosea 6:3

“Then shall we know,
if we follow on to know the Lord:

his going forth is prepared as the morning;
and he shall come unto us as the rain,
as the latter and former rain unto the earth.”

Jesus is My Everything ~

givemejesus CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus is my everything,
In Him, I am complete
Jesus is my all in all . . .
He is my soul’s retreat.

Whenever I am weary,
I find my perfect rest
when I turn to Jesus . . .
I know I’ll be blessed.

His peace, it comforts,
soothes like a  balm

I’m surrounded by calm.

Oh, how I need  Jesus,

in Him I’m made whole
Jesus is my all in all . . .

Hope On ~

Hope on, all you who are in despair,
hope on, knowing He will forever care
rest in the promises of your Savior
and God will bless you with His favor.

Hope on, all you who are suffering,
hope on, let His mercy do the buffering
know that this too shall pass and end
and your problems God will fix and mend.

Hope on, you the fainthearted one,
hope on, and trust in His living Son
God’s grace will help and see you through
for there isn’t anything He can’t do.

Hope on, all those who have great sorrow,
hope on, He will bring a brighter tomorrow
find rest in God’s everlasting arms
and He’ll protect you from all that harms.

Hope on, all you who are in unending pain,
hope on, for soon you are going to gain
rest and comfort that only God can give
so hold on, and in His peace you shall live!

and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the Lord.”
