Depressurize ~

When I feel the need,
to depressurize . . .
I shut my mouth
and close my eyes.

For when I am still,
I can decompress
and think about why
I’m so very blessed.

When I feel the need,
to completely unwind
I open up my heart
and shut down my mind.

For when I’m at rest,
God can release
into my soul
His perfect peace.

When I feel the need,
to depressurize . . .
it’s so God’s calm in me
He can internalize!

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:15

And let the peace of God
rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are
called in one body;
and be ye thankful.

Anxiety’s Trap ~

I felt the trap,
of anxiety
set a snare
on my sanity.

The conditions,
were just ripe
that at my heart
it took a swipe.

I took the bait,
ran away with it
then fell into
a nervous snit.

It took some time,
for me to see
this isn’t where
God wants me.

So I sent my own trap,
for anxiety . . .
now with God’s love
fear had no priority!

~~~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made
perfect in love.

My Cup Is Full ~

I’ve got a cup,
it’s fills with more grace
each time I seek
God’s almighty face.

He pours into it,
mercy anew
upon morning’s
dewy debut.

I’ve got a cup,
it overflows
the more God
I get to know.

He dispenses into it,
faith, joy and peace
everlasting assurance
that’ll never cease.

I’ve got a cup,
full of hope’s promise
it warms my soul . . .
with eternal solace!

~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

Psalm 23:5
My cup runneth over.

Holy Spirit Power ~

There is a longing,
that runs so deep
a feeling I have
and want to keep.

It fills a need,
it burns a desire
to be filled with
power and fire.

There is a yearning,
that is compelling
a thirst I have for
a deeper indwelling.

It invigorates,
it profoundly provokes
a feeling of strength
it fiercely evokes.

There is a longing,
a deep yearning . . .
to feel the Holy Spirit
power in my life burning!

~~~~~~~

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power,
after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you:

Onward Pressing ~

When your life,
is but a mess
when bombarded
by all the stress.

Let God have,
the weightiness
so He can take
the heaviness.

When your life,
is upside down
when each day
is a letdown.

Let Jesus take,
your despair
so He can have
all your care.

When your life,
has you stressing
into Jesus keep . . .
onward pressing!

~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.

No Greater Love Known ~


No greater love than this,
that Jesus would die for me
no greater Friend . . .
in this world will I ever see.

No greater love will come,
than the one He freely gives
no greater joy . . .
knowing my Savior lives.

No greater love is there,
from a Father to a Son
no greater promise . . .
His will shall been done.

No greater love will I find,
than the one Jesus gives
no greater hope . . .
knowing my sins He forgives.

No greater love than this,
to the world from their King
no greater comfort . .
than the peace He will bring!

~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have
everlasting life.”

No One But Jesus ~

No one but Jesus,
can save you . . .
no one besides
can you go to.

No one else,
can deliver you . . .
no one other
love is this true.

No one but Jesus,
can offer liberty . . .
no one otherwise
can end your misery.

No one else,
just Jesus alone . . .
no one other
your sin’s can atone.

No, not one,
no god made by man
can save you . . .
only Jesus can!

~~~~~~

Psalm 55:16

As for me, I will call upon God;
and the Lord shall save me.

The Process of Grief ~

Grief is a process,
time it does not know
it keeps its own rhythm
tis why it ebbs and flows.

It swells like a wave,
rising in your chest
you never know when
it will rise or crest.

Grief is a phase,
time means not a thing
it keeps its own beat
tis why it’s so cutting.

It stuns like a blow,
hitting in your face
you never know when
for one you should brace.

Grief is a transition,
time has no meaning
but, we who trust God . . .
know joy will be coming!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:8

“But, beloved, be not ignorant
of this one thing, that one day
is with the Lord as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day.

Psalm 30:5

Weeping may endure
for a night, but joy cometh
in the morning.

No Matter What ~

No matter what,
you are loved
by our Father
up above.

There is nothing,
that you might do
that could make Him
stop loving you.

No matter what,
His back He won’t turn
He will celebrate
when you return.

He is merciful,
full of patience
He is beyond
more than gracious.

No matter what,
your Father loves you
so He sent His Son
to prove how true!

~~~~~~

Romans 5:8

But God commendeth his love
toward us,

in that, while we were
yet sinners,

Christ died for us.

We All Thirst ~

We all thirst,
we all want more . . .
more hope, more love
we all yearn for.

We all need,
spiritual refreshment
we all need in Jesus
to make an investment.

We all thirst,
we all want more
more joy, more bliss
we all hunger for.

We all need,
to come to the well
where in Living Water
Jesus’ Spirit dwells.

We all have,
deep burning desires
but only Jesus’ love . . .
can quench the fires!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 4:13-14

Jesus answered and said unto her,
Whosoever drinketh of this water
shall thirst again:

But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall
never thirst; but the water that
I shall give him shall be in him
a well of water springing up
into everlasting life.

Grouchy-Ville ~

Some people live in,
grouchy-ville . . .
where every day looks
to them all up hill.

They are always in,
a grumpy mood
over every thing
they like to brood.

Some people live in,
happiness-ville . . .
where every day looks
to them all down hill.

They are always giving,
God their worldly care
over everything they go
daily to Him in prayer.

Some people live in,
the mood of their choice
but the best place to dwell  . . .
is in the ville-of-rejoice!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always:
and again I say, Rejoice.

Sounding Brass ~

Charity

Sounding brass,
sharp and shrill
the call to charity
they can’t fill.

They seem to appear,
so strong and wise
but yet so oblivious
to charity’s cries.

Tinkling cymbals,
sound so sweet
but give no charity
to those they meet.

They look sincere,
so meek and small
yet still can’t hear
charity’s needy call.

Sounding brass,
tinkling cymbals
have not agape love . . .
plain and simple!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:1

“Though I speak with
the tongues of men
and of angels,
and have not charity,
I am become as
sounding brass, or a
tinkling cymbal.”

The Thunderous Voice of God ~

If you could hear God’s voice,
you’d hear the power and the might
behind each word and syllable
making the universe take on flight.

You would hear Him tell the sun,
it was time to shine and rise
you could listen as He ordered it
to dip into the darkening skies.

You would hear Him tell the seasons,
what time to start and when to cease
you could listen as they obeyed Him
without rebellion but in peace.

You would hear Him tell the rain,
when it was time to turn to snow
you could listen to their respect for Him
as each little flake His voice knows.

If you could hear God’s voice,
you would know He was in control
not just of the universe . . .
but, of every single heart and soul!

~~~~~~~~~

Job 37:5-6

“God thundereth marvellously
with his voice;
great things doeth he,
which we cannot comprehend.

For he saith to the snow,
Be thou on the earth;
likewise to the small rain,
and to the great rain
of his strength.”

God’s Storehouse ~

God has a storehouse,
filled to the brim
for all those who believe
and trust in Him.

There’s an endless supply,
of mercy and grace
awaiting those who by faith
His eternal love embrace.

God has a storehouse,
He wants to provide
all things that are good
you’ll not be denied.

It’s full of forgiveness,
hope, peace and rest
with the riches and glory
in Jesus you’ll blessed.

God has a storehouse,
He wants for you to share
so other people burdens . . .
you too, may help to bear!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:19

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

Life-Mending

Life-mending,
behavior altering
the Word of God
is soul shattering.

The truth it reveals,
the light it shines
transforming both
hearts and minds.

Conflict ending,
peace conquering
the Word of God
is spirit-stirring.

The way it shows,
the path it leads
where faith and trust
meets our daily needs.

Life-mending,
pain healing
the World of God
is soul revealing!

Think ~

If we were to think,
before we speak . . .
our tongues we’d hold
more in our cheeks.

If we carefully choose,
what words we use
we’d say things to lift up
not those that bruise.

If we were to ponder,
what we had to say
we’d be more likely
to stop first and pray.

If we were to select,
words comforting
our speech would be
far less confronting.

If we knew just how,
powerful our words were
the more encouragement
in others we’d stir.

If we were to just think,
before we speak . . .
more grace we’d have
the less others we’d critique!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:29

“Let no corrupt communication
proceed out of your mouth,
but that which is good to
the use of edifying, that
it may minister grace
unto the hearers.”

On The Breeze of Serenity ~

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

Today the weather’s 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!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:34

“Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the
things of itself. Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof.”

If With Our Mouths?

Love In Action used wth permision IBible verses

If with our mouths we confess,
our faith in God above . . .
then why don’t we show others
unconditional love?

If with our mouths we declare,
Jesus is our salvation
then why with this world
do we still have a flirtation?

If with our mouths we admit,
we’ve been set free from sin
then why does Satan’s armies
still end up with the win?

If with our mouths we profess,
Jesus is the Lord of our life
then why do we still live
with discord, turmoil, and strife?

If with our mouths we assert,
we walk everyday with the Lord
then why in our hearts and minds
isn’t His Word carefully stored?

If with our own lips we worship,
and give honor to our King . . .
then why are we so detached
from the lyrics that we sing?

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 15.7-8

“Ye hypocrites,
well did Esaias prophesy of you,
saying,
This people draweth nigh
unto me with their mouth,
and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.”

Worthy Is The Lamb ~

Oh, worthy is the Lamb,
who died for you and me
deserving of our praise
let His glory bow our knee.

For the Lamb is our salvation,
the One who saves the just
Oh, worthy is the Lamb
who makes our sins, but dust.

Oh, worthy is the Lamb,
all His sheep bless His name
He gave unto us a new life
and took with Him our shame.

For the Lamb came in love,
to save a world full of hate
Oh, worthy is the Lamb
who opened heaven’s gate!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 5:12

“Worthy is the Lamb
who was slain

To receive power
and riches and wisdom,

And strength and honor
and glory and blessing!”

No Other Name ~

Names of Jesus by Andrew Haight free photo #3974

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other one we can call on
no other person that can help us
to be eternally drawn.

There’s no other name under heaven,
no other name given unto man
no other person who has for us
the way to salvation’s plan.

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other one with such power
no other person who we can rely on
no matter the given hour.

There’s no other name I know,
no other one who loves us
no other name that spells out
who we can always trust.

There is no other name that shines,
no other who has the light
no other name who will help us
battle the enemy that we fight.

There is no other name like Jesus,
no other name that we can call
no other person who can save us
It’s Jesus ~ or no one at all!

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

Acts 4:12
King James Version

“Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven
given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
