God, My Need~

God, my Need,
my Want, My Desire
let Your Spirit in me
urge and inspire.

Quench my thirst,
feed my inner hunger
give me an appetite . . .
to absorb Your wonder.

God my Longing,
my Yearning, my Passion
let me take in every ounce
of Your loving compassion.

Provide for me each day,
my spiritual bread
so by Your spirit  . . .
I’ll be constantly fed.

God, my Need,
My Dependence, my Reliance
may I always look to You
for counsel and guidance!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:19

But my God shall supply all
your need according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

The Hungry, Thirsty Heart ~

The hungry heart,
needs to be filled
with God’s Word
so to be skilled.

Skilled in faith,
trained in trust
so to the world ways
it will not adjust.

The thirsty heart,
needs to find
God’s peacefulness
in heart and mind.

Calm and tranquility,
amidst the mayhem
so their souls too . . .
God will not condemn.

The hungry, thirsty heart,
will not settle for . .
anything that God
loathes and abhors!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:6

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

Psalm 5:5-6

The foolish shall not stand
in thy sight: thou hatest
all workers of iniquity.

Thou shalt destroy them.
that speak leasing:
the Lord will abhor the
bloody and deceitful man.

Because I am Loved ~

Because I am loved,
I am humble . . .
under my cares
I don’t crumble.

Because I am humble,
I am set free
from the devil
I am able to flee.

Because I am free,
I am forgiven
to holy living
I am driven.

Because I am forgiven,
I am saved
to the world’s ways
I’m no longer a slave.

Because I am saved,
I am strong
no more desire
I have to do wrong.

Because I was loved,
by Jesus first . . .
after righteousness
I hunger and thirst!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:6-10

Humble yourselves therefore under
the mighty hand of God, that he
may exalt you in due time:

Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.

1 John 4:19
We love him,
because he first loved us.

Sticky Note to God ~06.04.19~


Let The Water Flow ~

Let the Water flow,
let it gush, let it spew
so it may bring Lord
more thirsty souls to You.

Let the Spirit burst forth,
let it flare, let it erupt
so it may save Lord
the depraved and corrupt.

Let the Truth spill out,
let it ooze, let it seep
so it may harness Lord
lost and wayward sheep.

Let the Light flood,
let it drench, let it surge
so that in Your grace Lord
sinful hearts can purge.

Let the Living Water flow,
let it gush, let it release
so that in You Lord . . .
all can find eternal peace!

~~~~~~

John 7:37-39

In the last day, that great day
of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him
come unto me, and drink.

He that believeth on me,
as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow
rivers of living water.

(But this spake he of the Spirit,
which they that believe on him
should receive: for the Holy Ghost
was not yet given; because that
Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Fill Me Up Lord ~

Fill me up Lord,
till I overflow
with Your love
keep my heart aglow.

Fill me up Lord,
till I burst inside
with Your power
help me to abide.

Fill me up Lord,
till I bust all out
with Your peace
rid me of my doubt.

Fill me up Lord,
till I gush and spew
with Your grace
restore and renew.

Fill me up Lord,
till I over-spill . . .
with Your love
let me have my fill!

I AM The Bread of Life ~

Jesus is the Bread of Life,
He’s the only one to satisfy
our every spiritual need
He assures us He’ll supply.

That gnawing in our souls,
the hunger and the thirst
He will fulfill them all
when we seek Him first.

Jesus is the Bread of Life,
He promises to deliver
all our spiritual desires
when to Him we surrender.

His life and His death,
bought all our worldly strife
now by faith, through grace
we have everlasting life.

Jesus is the Bread of Life,
He is all our soul’s need
when we follow Him . . .
our heart’s He will feed!

John 6:3

“And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me shall
never hunger; and he that
believeth on me
shall never thirst.”

My Daily Nourishment ~

my-daily-nourishment-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, give unto me,
my daily bread
satisfy my hunger
let me be Spirit lead.

Renew my mind,
keep worry at bay
transform my heart
upon each new day.

Give unto me,
all the faith I need
quench my thirst
as Your Word I read.

Provide me shelter,
a place to find rest
let not this sparrow
fall from Your nest.

Lord, nourish my soul,
clothe me in righteousness
cover me daily
with Your graciousness!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:25

“Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought for your life,
what ye shall eat, or what ye
shall drink; nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on.
Is not the life more than meat,
and the body than raiment?

Hungering and Thirsting ~

hungering-and-thristing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

Hungering and thirsting,
after God’s righteousness
are the soul’s trembling with
an awe-fearing mindfulness.

Filled with true penitence,
the hungry soul now feeds
on how only God can fulfill
all of their wants and needs.

They long to know,
everything that they can
about how God has for them
a righteous-living plan.

The thirsty soul yearns,
for the Waters of life
for it knows no other way
to deal with sin’s strife.

They embrace the Truth,
the Life and the Way
the soul’s that do thirst
are the ones God can sway.

Hungering and thirsting,
after Divine holiness
are soul’s who desire . . .
to live a life of godliness!

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

Slow Me Down, Lord ~

Slow Me Down Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Slow me down Lord,
help me to take the time
to see You’re more important
than this life of mine.

Slow me down Lord,
sometimes I move too fast
I get so distracted to even notice
that it was You, I have passed.

Slow me down Lord,
help me to stay close to You
let me see You’re more worthy
than anything I have to do.

Slow me down Lord,
it seems I’m always on the run
and so often Your voice
I just put off and shun.

Slow me down Lord,
help me to put You first . . .
help me to see if I don’t my soul
will always hunger and thirst!

Romans 8:5
