Chilling Out ~

Today, I am chilling,
going to take it easy
not letting my fears
make me feel queasy.

Today, I am relaxing,
got me not a care
for, I took them all
to my Lord in prayer.

Today, I am resting,
letting go of it all
for, into the worry pit
I refuse to fall.

Today, I am slacking,
just Jesus and me
there’s not a doubt
together we will be.

Today I am chilling,
I’ll be easy-going . . .
for with God’s peace
I am overflowing!

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,

With All Our Heart ~

When we love God,
with all of our heart
from Him we’ll never
what to be apart.

We will pursue Him,
night and day
we will praise Him
when we pray.

When we love God,
with all of our soul
our lives He’ll heal
and make whole.

We will seek Him,
all our living days
we’ll want to know
what are His ways.

When we love God,
with all our mind
His joy and peace
we’ll surely find.

We will trust Him,
for all we need
to His loving will
we’ll start to heed.

When we love God,
with all of our might
for our transgression
we will be contrite.

We will see our need,
for His merciful favor
and receive the grace
of Jesus, our  Savior.

When we mightily love God,
with all our heart and soul
over our minds He will . . .
take complete control!

Dispel Your Despair ~

If your faith is steadfast,
rooted and grounded
when trials come your way
in joy you’ll be surrounded.

For in the very midst,
of your worldly care
counting it all for joy
will dispel your despair.

When in Jesus,
you are truly content
you’ll experience joy
that is heaven sent.

For, whether in sickness,
or in perfect health
joy will bring to you
everlasting wealth.

Joy is not an option,
it’s something God gives
to those where His Spirit
securely abides and lives!

“Now the God of hope fill you

Never Alone ~

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

His very presence,
gives me such peace
for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

He brings me comfort,
just knowing He’s here
He fills my heart and soul
with joy and good cheer.

I once thought,
I’d be left on my own
but since I found Jesus
I am never alone!

He Restores My Joy ~

He restores my soul,
from the daily fatigue
He repairs my nerves
my fears, He relieves.

He restores my heart,
from its heaviness
He removes the pain
the hurt, the weariness.

He restores my faith,
when weakness sets in
He resets my trust
to follow after Him.

He restores my belief,
when there is doubt
He reinstates in my life
what His truth is about.

He restores my joy,
of a future sighting
He returns my watch
for that eye twinkling!

Lasting Pleasure ~

There is a narrow path,
leading to lasting pleasure
where joy and peace
are held without measure.

If you keep your eyes,
on what God has for you
the hope of your inheritance
will come right into view.

All of God’s goodness,
will begin to flow
as He reveals to you
the way you should go.

Your heart will be glad,
your soul shall delight
as the glory of God
comes into your sight.

There is a narrow path,
it holds quite a treasure
for those who trust the Lord
it’s full of lasting pleasure!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are
pleasures for evermore.”

Give God Your Worries ~

give-god-your-worries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people worry,
about anything
some get anxious
over everything.

Some wrestle daily,
with their troubles
some nightly fight
with their struggles.

But, those who wait,
on the Lord are still
the worries they have
their peace cannot steal.

They cast their anxiety,
onto Jesus each day
they don’t fret about
things coming their way.

Some people worry,
about anything
but, those who trust God
give Him their everything!

Bursts of Spring ~

Bursts of Spring,
are in the air . . .
tiny glimpses of
days warm and fair.

A tree bud,
a poppy bloom
heals the ache
of winter’s gloom.

Bursts of Spring,
fill my sights
to warm my thoughts
on still cold nights.

A bird’s faint song,
a mostly blue sky
the last snow flake
to float on by.

Little-bitty bursts of Spring,
God is sending  . . .
for it’s the season we need
His loving tending!

Son Rise ~

Lord, open up eyes,
and hearts too
so others may today . . .
come to know You.

Open up their minds,
let Your love sink in
so others may today
be forgiven of their sin.

Open up their ears,
let them really hear
the reason Your Father
even sent You here.

Open up their souls,
to Your eternal grace
so others may today
Your life in theirs embrace.

Father, open up souls,
ears, hearts and eyes
so others may today . . .
see Your glorious Son rise!

Happy
Resurrection Day


I AM The Resurrection ~

I am the Resurrection,
I am the Life . . .
I am the One who took
upon Myself your strife.

Though someday you’ll die,
eternal life to you I give
if for your sins
you believe I will forgive.

I am the One chosen,
I am my Father’s favor
I am the Christ Jesus
your Lord and Savior.

One day in heaven,
together we will be
but, you must have faith
My Father sent Me.

I am the Resurrection,
new life I bring you
but, you must believe
in Me, for this to be true!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 11:25-26

“Jesus said unto her,
I am the resurrection,

he that believeth in me,
though he were dead,
yet shall he live:

And whosoever
liveth and believeth

in me shall never die.
Believest thou this?”

Jesus Died for All ~

Jesus gave Himself for me,
He gave Himself for you
He gave Himself for each
one in the world too.

Jesus died for our sins,
He gave up His life
so we’d be delivered
from its damning strife.

Jesus gave Himself for all,
He gave Himself to set free
He gave Himself to break
on us, satan’s authority.

Jesus became the ransom,
His life was the price
so one day with Him
we could be in paradise.

Jesus gave Himself for you,
He gave Himself for me . . .
so from sin we’d be freed
if we so choose to be!

Eternal Love ~

eternal-love-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every day God shows,
to us His undying love
every day He showers
His mercies from above.

Every day God says,
child I love you
every day His grace
makes everything new.

Every day God gives,
us His loving solace
every day His peace
is perfect and flawless.

Every day God tends,
to us with loving care
every day He offers us
our burdens to bear.

Every day God sends,
blessings from above
every day He showers us
with His eternal love!

God is Smiling ~

His grace and favor
are for you on display.

He sent you the sun,
shining from above
to remind you of
the warmth of His love.

Each morning He brings,
to you mercies anew
each day He proclaims
your faith He’ll renew.

Beams of everlasting hope,
blissful eternal rays
reflect His future promise
of more peaceful days.

God is smiling,
down on you today
blessings from heaven
just to brighten your day!

The Fear Factor ~

the-fear-factor-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Fear plugs the heart,
stops the flow of peace
it clogs up the calm
only God can release.

Fear hijacks the hope,
we need to be still
it robs the soul
of knowing God’s will.

Fear rips the faith,
right out from under us
it cripples the mind
of its eternal sureness.

Fear disables the joy,
of our salvation
it shuts down the bliss
of our future elation.

Fear stifles the peace,
of a mind that’s sound
it zaps the power
that in God we found!

“I sought the Lord,
and he heard me,

Remember Your First Love ~

remeber-your-first-love-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Remember your First Love,
how you once felt
how the sound of His name
made your heart melt?

Remember the hope,
how it lifted up your soul
when by His stripes
you were made whole?

Remember the joy,
how much you were elated
when your life to Jesus
you first dedicated?

Remember the grace,
how it washed over you
how God’s loving mercy
made everything new?

Remember your First Love,
how Jesus made you feel?
If not, it is time for you
to get back your zeal!

May Christ dwell,
in your heart today
may His Life
be your Truth and Way.

May Christ make,
your heart His home
may you let Him
make it His throne.

May Christ abide,
in your heart always
may He be the one
to walk its hallways.

May Christ’s love be,
in your heart rooted
may your love for Him
be firmly grounded.

May Christ dwell,
in your heart today
may your faith in Him
always be on display!

Heaven Is Surreal ~

heaven-is-surreal-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Heaven is going to be,
awesome and surreal
for it will be a place
peacefully ideal.

It will be in Heaven,
from burdens we’ll be free
it’ll be our true happy place
full of laughter and glee.

Heaven will be a place,
where all will be healed
it is where God’s glory
will be fully revealed.

It will be in Heaven,
from our labors we’ll rest
it’ll be a place of joy
for those once oppressed.

Heaven is going to be,
filled with happiness
life will be never-ending
in the place of gladness!

God Is Our Shelter ~

God is our shelter,
in the storms of stress
He brings comfort
to us in our duress.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of sorrow
He gives us the joy
to face the morrow.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of fear
He brings peace
by drawing to us near.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of grief
He gives us strength
brings our hearts relief.

He brings the calm
in the midst of our strife!

In God’s Training Room ~

in-gods-training-room-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

In God’s training room,
there’s a lot for us to learn
for, He wants to teach us
He’s with us at every turn.

We wrestle with the pain,
weep long into the night
so God can show us
the joy in His morning light.

We confront our sorrow,
the source of our fears
so God can collect for us
in His bottle all our tears.

We struggle with our past,
we scramble with its strife
so God can help us see
the temperance of this life.

In God’s training room,
He’s teaching us to know
all thing work for good
to them who love Him so!

When You’re Delighted ~

that-is-the-time-christian-poetry-by-deborah-nn

When you’re delighted,
to walk in God’s ways
that’s the time you’ll have
more peaceful days.

When you’re committed,
to seeking God first
that’s the time after Him
you genuinely thirst.

When you give God,
all your heart desires
that’s the time you’re doing
just what He requires.

When you trust God,
for everything
that’s the time you’ll see
each blessing He brings.

When in God’s ways
you’re truly delighted
that’s the time to be
joyfully excited!

God’s Adoption Plan ~

chosen-and-loved-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Jesus conquered the grave,
defeated death . . .
so we don’t have to fear
our dying breath.

The victory is His,
to which we are a heir
one day in Heaven
we will see Jesus there.

A free gift we were given,
when satan, Jesus defeated
and now by His grace
our faith is completed.

Blameless and holy,
before God, we will stand
for, Jesus’ death fulfilled
His Father’s adoption plan.

Jesus conquered,
what we could not do . . .
through His precious blood
in Him, we’re made new!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:4-5

” According as he hath chosen
us in him before the foundation
of the world, that we should
be holy and without blame
before him in love:

Having predestinated us
unto the adoption of children
by Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good pleasure
of his will,”

Whatever is Lovely ~

whatever-is-lovely-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Whatever things are lovely,
that which is positive
think about such things
everything else is just negative.

For, that which is uplifting,
is full of righteousness
and will bring to your heart
contentment and quietness.

Whatever things are calming,
that which is tranquil
think about these things
your worries they will still.

For, that which is hopeful,
that which brings confirmation
will give you Godly confidence
full of love and not frustration.

Whatever things are lovely,
in your mind let them flow
and then the peace of God
you will come to know!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

” Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are . . .

whatsoever things are lovely,
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.”
