Stress Test ~

Today God gave me,
a spiritual stress test
to see if my soul . . .
could remain at rest.

So He sent to me,
a hand-wringing situation
to see if my heart . . .
could handle the agitation.

He wanted to know,
how I would proceed
whether if to the strain
I’d win or would concede.

It took all of His strength,
for me not to succumb
for I knew I could trust Him
with the power to overcome.

Today God sent to me,
a test that was stressing
but I’m happy to say . . .
I’m patiently resting!

Knowing this,

of your faith

Rested ~

When in God,
we find our rest
we’ll be ready
for any test.

For our faith,
will be strong
for whatever may
come along.

When in God,
we’re at peace
our trust in Him
will increase.

For when we’re calm,
though trials come
to their desperation
we won’t succumb.

When by God,
we are tested . . .
our calm composure
will keep us rested!

Faith Invincible ~

Faith Invincible,
is a faith strong
it rejoices even when
things go wrong.

It is unbeatable,
nothing tears it down
it rejoices even when . . .
troubles come around.

Faith invincible,
is a faith robust
for it knows in God
to always put its trust.

It is unstoppable,
when satan attacks
it is indestructible
for hope it never lacks.

Faith invincible,
is a faith durable
it rejoices in all things . . .
for it is unmovable!

Why Me Lord ~

Why Me Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Why me Lord  . . .
sometimes I must say
why did You bring
this problem my way?

Why did You want,
to bring me this pain
what from all of this
do You want me to gain?

Why me Lord . . .
I sometimes have to ask
why did you send me
such an impossible task?

Why did You make,
all this come about
is it to find patience
while I dig my way out?

Why me Lord . . .
I really want to know
is it perseverance
You want me to grow?

Is that why You’re trying,
my faith with these things
so I may discover the joy . . .
that being tested brings!

Faith Is ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

Faith is a mixture,
of sunshine and rain
of highs and lows
happiness and pain.

Faith is a blending,
of gladness and grief
of ups and downs
struggles and relief.

Faith is a fusion,
of blessings and hardships
of twists and turns
droughts and harvests.

Faith is a combination,
of hope and despair
of rises and falls
injury and repair.

Faith is a merging,
of mercy, grace and love
faith believes in all things
we can rise above!

I Need A Faith Lift ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

Lord, I need a faith lift,
perhaps a nip and tuck . . .
an implant of more grace
to get me out of this rut.

I need to liposuction,
the lack of trust out of me
so I can keep my confidence
believing in what I can’t see.

Perhaps some perseverance,
will cure the funk I’m in
an infusion of joy . . .
to bring back my gleeful grin.

I need to give to You,
my worries and my cares
so You can come and do
the restoring and repairs.

Lord, I need a faith lift,
for mine is getting shabby
I’ll need a nip and tuck
before it gets too flabby!
