Breaking The Chain of Pain ~

Living in the past,
is so easy to do . . .
it’s not hard to recall
the bad things done to you.

Letting go is not so simple,
there’s no effort in hanging on
and to forget the past images
takes an awful lot of brawn.

So, we live with the despair,
the heartaches and the pain
and the peace God promised
our misery will only drain.

It’s not until we come,
to a place where we forgive
that we find the tranquility
in which God wants us to live.

So, if you are in the shackles,
which bind you to the past
let Jesus release your burden
and you’ll be free at last!

Psalm 55:22

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

We Are All Wounded ~

Walking Wounded ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
We are all wounded,
from the battles of life
we all carry with us
scars from the strife.

We have all suffered,
the pain of depression
each of us has felt
the sting of rejection.

We are all wounded,
damaged in some way
we all carry with us
the hurts of yesterday.

We all need healing,
from the harm done
we all need someone
to whom we can run.

We are all wounded,
in need of comforting
we all need Jesus . . .
to ease our suffering!

 that comforteth you:”

Sticks and Stones ~

Tongues of Fire by Johannes Stafuffer free photo #5906

Sticks and stones,
indeed break bones
but, names still hurt
when they are thrown.

Hot, fiery words,
meant to cause pain
for years and years
the flames remain.

Bones they mend,
bones they heal
but, names poison
the way we feel.

They penetrate,
deep, so deep
wounded souls
weep and weep.

Before you cast,
an angry word
think of the ones
you too have heard.

For sticks might break,
stones can miss their mark
but names, oh names . . .
always hits ~ the heart!

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

James 3:6
King James Version

“And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity:
so is the tongue among our members,
that it defileth the whole body,
and setteth on fire the course of nature;
and it is set on fire of hell.”

Where’s Your Peace?

the-prince-of-peace used with permission IBible Verses

Where is your gift of peace,
where do you keep it . . .
is it found in a bottle of booze
or that cigarette you just lit?

Where is your gift of peace,
how many pills does it take
how many drugs do you need
till you no longer shake?

Where is your gift of peace,
when will the violence end
when will you stop hurting
your family and your friends?

Where is your gift of peace,
how much longer will you look
to the world for the answers
and not in the Good Book?

Where is your gift of peace,
where do you keep it . . .
how much longer from God
will you keep your sin a secret?

Jesus, is the Prince of Peace,
He’s your strength in all things
but you must turn to Him . . .
and confess to Him everything.

Then you will find the calm,
of God’s eternal peace . . .
and from these worldly things
in Jesus, you will be released!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6
King James Version

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor,
The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

When Life Hurts ~

When Life Hurts ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When life hurts,
and you ache inside
ask God for His peace
til the pain subsides.

For, He understands,
the heart that cries
and will empathize
with your fervent sighs.

When you tell God about,
your dread and  fears
He will send His joy
to wipe away your tears.

For, your every prayer,
goes right into His ear
there is not one
He isn’t willing to hear.

When life hurts,
give Jesus your pain
then pray for His peace
in your heart to come reign!

~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 5:2

King James Version

“Hearken unto
the voice of my cry,

my King, and my God:
for unto thee will I pray.”

The Chain of Pain

Be Free by Marian Trindad free photo

Living in the past,
is so easy to do . . .
thinking about the things
that other’s did to you.

Letting go isn’t simple,
there’s no effort in hanging on
and to forget the images
takes an awful lot of brawn.

So, we live with the despair,
the heartaches and the pain
and the peace, God promises
our misery will only drain.

It’s not until we come,
to a place where we forgive
that we’ll find the harmony
in which God intended us to live.

So, if you are in the shackles,
which bind you to the past
let Jesus release the burden
and you’ll be free at last.

The future holds great promise,
to those who give Him their pain
for only Jesus can heal the hurt
of every painful link on the chain !

Psalm 55:22
King James Version

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

In The Twinkling Of An Eye ~

In Just A Twinkle Of My Eye ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In the twinkling of an eye,
with my Lord, I’m going to be
upon that glorious trumpet blow
on the clouds He’ll come for me.

My tired, weak fragile body,
will be changed into a new one
in just a twinkling of an eye
my new life will have begun.

No longer will I hurt,
pain won’t have its grip on me
in just a twinkling of an eye
in heaven I will finally be.

My tears of grief and sorrow,
will turn to cries of glee
in just a twinkling of an eye
His glory  will be all I see.

No more will I have to battle,
the burdens of this life
in just a twinkling of an eye
I’ll have victory over strife.

With my Lord, I will be
to this world I’ll bid goodbye
and I’ll dwell in perfect peace
in just a twinkling of an eye!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:52
King James Version

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.”

Bully!

Bully,
why did you pick on me
what was it that you saw
that no one else could see?

Bully,
sticks and stones cast
did you not realize
how long the pain would last?

Bully,
names, but not my God-given
they were the ones
that made me hate livin’.

Bully,
words so very cruel
why did you think
I was made to be your fool?

Bully,
what did I ever do . . .
what did I ever say . . .
to bring the bully out in you?

Bully,
you really did hurt me
but my Lord and Savior
from you, has set me free.
