This Peace ~

I never knew this peace,
that God has imparted
I never knew this calm
keeping my heart guarded.

I truly don’t understand,
or know how to explain
why I don’t feel wracked
by this unbearable pain.

I could never imagine,
a mind not over fraught
or how joy can capture
each and every thought.

It’s past comprehension,
way beyond my grasp . . .
how tightly God can keep
one’s heart within His clasp.

But, I know this one thing,
no where else could I find
for, the peace Jesus brings . . .
isn’t like any other kind!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds
through Christ Jesus.

Be Joyful and Prayerful ~

Be joyful in hope,
be faithful in prayer
don’t forget to give . . .
Jesus your care.

For to be joyful,
when troubles increase
will make your anxiety
decline and decrease.

Be patient in affliction,
be steadfast and firm
don’t forget to give . . .
Jesus your concern.

For to be diligent,
when problems arise
will help you to keep
your eyes on the prize.

Be joyful and prayerful,
be so ever patient too
and never forget . . .
how much Jesus loves you!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:12

Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation;
continuing instant
in prayer;

The Voice of Thanksgiving ~

the-voice-of-thansgiving-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

May the voice of thanksgiving,
be heard joyfully today . . .
may words of gratefulness
be sung heartily as we pray.

May our heartfelt thoughts,
offer God His due praise
may we be grateful
as our thanks to Him we raise.

May the voice of gratitude,
be heard loud and clear
may our humble thanks
be detected by every ear.

May our praise be sung,
at our dinner table today
may our thanks transcend
beyond Thanksgiving Day.

May the voice of thanksgiving,
be our joyful noise today . . .
may our words of gratitude
be heard by God everyday!

No One Can Steal My Joy ~

no-one-can-steal-my-joy-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

No one can steal the joy,
bubbling inside of me
no problem big or small
can rob me of my glee.

No test or trial,
can take my joy away
no amount of pain will cause
my joyousness to give way.

No bumps in the road,
will cause my joy to cease
no detour along the way
will seize my future peace.

No sorrow or heartbreak,
can wipe my joy out
in all things good or bad
it’s for joy, them I count.

No one can steal from me,
not one thing can capture
the joy I have looking . . .
forward to the rapture!

” My brethren, count it all
joy when ye fall into
divers temptations;”

Where There is Peace ~

Where There Is Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Where there is peace,
there is thanksgiving
where there is praise
there is holy living.

Where there is calm,
there is joyfulness
where there is trust
there is cheerfulness.

Where there is tranquility,
there is anticipation
where there is hope
there is salvation.

Where there is serenity,
there is reliance
where there is faith
there is guidance.

Where there is peace,
there is thanksgiving
where there is gratitude
there is a calm unflinching!

~~~~~~~

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.”

The Gift of Joy ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Joy

Share the gift of eternal joy,
let it rise out of you each day
let the happiness you feel
leave its mark, along your way.

Tell everyone about Jesus,
the cheerfulness that He brings
let them know, He’s the reason
why your heart, this season sings.

Show your joyfulness,
raise your hands, sing your praise
let people see it is Jesus
who has you feeling so amazed.

Let your joy be seen by all,
for the glory of your salvation
let them see the birth of Jesus
is the cause for your elation.

Share the gift of eternal joy,
everyday throughout the year
let the world see your blissfulness
is more than holiday cheer!

they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”

What Thanksgiving Brings ~

praise-him-3 free  photo

Thanksgiving brings hope,
where there is none
thanksgiving brings gladness
as praise rolls of the tongue.

Thanksgiving brings calm,
where there is chaos
thanksgiving brings joyfulness
with peace, as its payoff.

Thanksgiving brings trust,
where there is doubt
thanksgiving brings jubilation
to those who are devout.

Thanksgiving brings power,
where there is weakness
thanksgiving brings merriment
healing and completeness.

Thanksgiving brings delight,
to our Father and His Son
thanksgiving brings rejoicing
for all they have done!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 75:175

“Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks,
unto thee do we give thanks:
for that thy name is near
thy wondrous works declare.”

A Trusting Heart ~

Trust the Lord with all Your Heart used with pemission IBible VErses

A trusting heart knows God,
it is filled with His peace
it has a calmness deep within
that it knows will never cease.

It is full of worship and praise,
is triumphant in all its ways
it is devoted and committed
honoring God with all its days.

It is steadfast and faithful,
it has not a wavering beat
it rises in the morning
so it’s Savior it can meet.

It is happy and content,
joyfulness flows throughout
it harbors not a fear
and casts away all doubt.

A trusting heart knows God,
is always within its reach
it has a calmness deep within
because it is full of His peace!

Proverbs 3:5
King James Version 

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own 
understanding.”
