Imperfect Me ~

In a world that is filled,
with so much turbulence
it hard to find peace . . .
of any permanence.

But, God’s perfect love,
flows into imperfect me
helping me to be . . .
chaos and havoc free.

In a world that is full,
of upheaval and unrest
it hard to be calm . . .
and not be stressed.

But, God’s mercy anew,
flows into unworthy me
helping me to be
fervor and frenzy free.

In a world that is filled,
with so much instability
I’m so thankful Jesus gives . . .
grateful me ~ stability!

Romans 3:23

For all have sinned,
and come short of
the glory of God;

John 16:33

These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

Troubles Abounding ~

In this fallen world . . .
they’ll be troubles abounding
worries and cares
conceptually confounding.

But, Jesus said we’re not,
to fret or to despair
but to hand over to Him
our every single care.

Each day there’s enough,
troubles of its own
packed full of anxiety
from the things unknown.

But, Jesus insisted,
we are not to dread
nor are we to panic
but to trust Him instead.

In this fallen world,
we’ll have plenty of distress
but, Jesus makes it clear
over them we needn’t obsess!

But, Take Heart ~

Take heart,
faith, do not lose
don’t let the evil-minded
give you the blues.

For, peace can be yours,
if you so elect
when onto Jesus
your eyes you direct.

Take heart,
joy, do not let go of
don’t let the enemy
overpower His love.

For, hope is yours,
in a world bearing none
for over the wicked
Jesus already won.

Take heart,
hold on to your faith and trust
for Jesus overcame . . .
the evilness all around us!

~~~~~~~

John 16:33

I have said these things to you,
that in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation.
But take heart;
I have overcome the world.”

On Tranquil Seas ~

Smooth Sailing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

On tranquil seas,
I wish to sail . . .
sans any storm
or gathering gale.

Smoothing sailing,
is all I want
no rough waters
to leave me gaunt.

Just blissful calm,
nothing more
no raging waves
breaking ashore.

Peaceful days,
restful nights
no disturbances
in which to fight.

But, this I know,
Lord can’t be true
so I’ll just sail . . .
in closer to You!

~~~~~~~

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.”

Hold On Tight ~

What A Ride ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some days I hear my Lord say,
dip in to Me a little closer
your life need not be . . .
like a winding roller-coaster.

The past is but a whisper,
compared to what’s in store
so don’t you get off track
by its fearful, screaming roar.

Today is just a vapor,
in the bigger scheme of things
so don’t you be frightened
by the ups and downs it brings.

Tomorrow they’ll be worries,
so don’t faint over them today
just know I’ll be next to you
as they come whirling your way.

Right now just remember,
you are in for quite a ride
but you can count on Me
to be right by your side.

Some days I hear my Lord,
tell me just to hold on tight
for in life’s twists and turns
I’ll be your guiding light!

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

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.

Take Heart ~

Take Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Take heart,
lest you become weary
for I’ll never forsake you
though things may be dreary.

Take heart,
when troubles come your way
for I came to give you peace
by shedding light on your way.

Take heart,
when worry’s at your door
for I came to give you hope
in a new life for evermore.

Take heart,
when burdens laden you
for I will lead and guide you
on what you need to do.

Take heart,
when disappointments mount
for I came to encourage you
on Me, you can always count!

In Jesus ~

 

Know Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Creation Swap photot

In Jesus there is a peace,
a  solace, a quietness
in Jesus there is a rest
a place to find calmness.

In Jesus there is a belief,
a faith, a hope, a trust
in Jesus there is a comfort
in knowing, He loves us.

In Jesus there is a stillness,
a river, a stream, a well
in Jesus there’s a certainty
in our lives, He will dwell.

In Jesus there is a way,
a truth, a light, a life
in Jesus there’s a power
to overcome our strife.

In Jesus there is a love,
a fellowship, a communion
in Jesus there is a promise
of a hallelujah reunion!

One-Step- At-A-Time ~

It's A Daily Thing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creation Swap

It’s a daily thing,
this Christian walk
it’s a one-step-at-a-time
this Christian walk.

It’s a journey,
at times a troublesome one
it’s a battle
with Satan that must be won.

It’s a voyage,
one storm right after another
it’s a struggle
to keep our faith from going under.

It’s a passage,
from the darkness into the light
it’s an encounter
needing all our strength and might.

It’s an expedition,
with our very own cross to bear
it’s a fight
not to buckle under from our care.

It’s a daily thing,
this Christian walk
it’s a one-step-at-a-time
to walk this Christian walk!

might have peace. In the

CHRISTmas Peace ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Peace - IBible Verses

May the true peace of Christmas,
fill the world with tranquility
may it spread across the land
and put an end to all hostility.

May God hear the entreaties,
from those who live in unrest
may He silence their enemies
and bring hope to their distress.

May the peace of Christmas,
comfort all who are oppressed
may they be filled with assurance
for their suffering, they’ll be blessed.

May God hear the grieving cries,
of those who have lost a loved one
may they be comforted in the grace
found in the arms of, His beloved Son.

May the true peace Jesus brings,
overcome the world’s hatefulness
may the light and love of His life . . .
break down, the hedges of darkness!

Everlasting Peace ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Peace - IBible Verses

We live in a pressurized world,
we’re always under stress
but, those who trust in the Lord
know how much they are blessed.

We’re hassled on every side,
pushed around and shoved
but, those who hope in Jesus
know how much they are loved.

We feel the weight of the world,
come crashing down on us
but, those who believe in Jesus
know in God they can always trust.

We’re full of fear and anxiety,
every time there’s bad news
but, those who have faith in Jesus
can know joy, if they choose.

We live in a pressurized world,
our burdens never seem to cease
but, those who trust in the Lord
are filled with everlasting peace!

Love Letter from God ~

Love Letter from God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Today I received,
a love letter from God
I opened up my Bible
here is what I read . . .

I am your Creator,
before you were born
I molded and formed you
just like the dew in the morn.

I’m the remedy to your needs,
I am your soothing balm
I’m the peace in your storm
I am the voice that is calm.

I’m all the grace you need,
in Me, there is eternal life
I came so that I could bear
the burden of your strife.

I am your staff of comfort,
I will shield and protect you
through life’s complexities
together we’ll journey through.

I am the anchor of your soul,
a safe place to run and hide
I will never forsake you . . .
I am always at your side.

I’m the lamp unto your way,
with my Word I will guide
I am the One who you feel
stirring up deep inside.

I am your Creator,
I knew you from the start
that is why I gave to you
for Me ~ a loving heart!

Tears to Cheers ~

be-of-good-cheer CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When trials come at you,
from every source and way
when they sleep with you at night
and awaken with you each day.

When they come out of nowhere,
attacking you from all sides
laying their angry claws into you
shredding you apart inside.

That is when you need to go,
to the One who truly cares
to the One who promises . . .
that our burdens, He will bear.

Jesus, will take your troubles,
your worries, He will lessen
and the dilemma you are in
will become an everlasting lesson.

So, next time your trials,
have you wallowing in tears
give them all to Jesus . . .
and He’ll bring your heart cheer.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Be of Good Cheer ~

but-take-heart_thumb used with permission IBible Verses

In this fallen world,
we’ll have pain and sorrow
but Jesus came to give us
a brighter tomorrow.

Oh, there’ll be days of defeat,
trials along with persecution
but Jesus came to overcome
the turmoil and confusion.

He knew we’d have troubles,
many worries and cares
but He came to comfort
and our burdens He does bear.

We’ll have grief and tragedy,
illnesses and disease
but He came to restore
and to set our minds at ease.

In this fallen world,
we’ll have pain and sorrow
but be of good cheer . . .
Jesus overcame our tomorrow!
