Tag Archives: Knowing God’s Will

God Has A Purpose ~

God has a purpose,
He had a plan
before our lives
even began.

He knows all things,
for our own good
will work out
as He said they would.

But, we must love,
God and His ways
we must have a heart
that yields and obeys.

We need to know,
what is God’s will
we need to wait
and to be still.

God has a purpose,
but, it’s up to us
to heed the calling
of faith and trust!

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord,
thoughts of peace,
and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

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,
and delivered me
from all my fears.”

Holy Spirit Walking ~

bible-crunches-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Today I’m walking,
with The Holy Spirit
today the road
we are both going to hit.

I’ll be trusting Him,
for the right directions
I’ll follow His lead
without any objections.

We’ll travel together,
without Him I won’t go
for the righteous way
I know He knows.

I’ll be looking for Him,
to steer my desires
into all that God’s will
asks and requires.

Today I’m walking,
with the Holy Spirit
to whatever He says
I’m going to commit!

let us also walk in the Spirit.”

The Valley of Hope ~

in-the-valley-of-hope-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is a valley,
I call hope . .
it’s where I gather
strength to cope.

I take my time,
as through it I go
praying all the way
God’s plans I’ll know.

I often rest,
along side a hill
it’s where I learn
how to be still.

I amble slowly,
around each bend
asking God all along
more faith He’ll send.

There is a valley,
hope is its name
where springs of trust
in God’s peace I claim!

Psalm 104:10

“He sendeth the springs
into the valleys, which
run among the hills.”

Seeking God First ~

seeking-god-first-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When in the morning,
when God you first seek
ask Him to make you strong
in the places you are weak.

Ask Him to reveal to you,
what is His perfect will
ask Him to give you calm
in the areas you aren’t still.

Ask Him to shine His light,
on the righteous way
ask Him to be your eyes
before you start your day.

Ask Him to fill your heart,
with His mercy and His love
ask Him to be your ears
so to hear His voice above.

When in the evening,
when to God you start to pray
ask Him to remind you . . .
to seek Him first, the next day!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:3

” My voice shalt thou hear
in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I direct
my prayer unto thee,
and will look up.”

The Art of Being Still ~

The Art of Being Still ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is an art,
to this being still
this waiting on God
takes a certain skill.

It takes prayer,
to know God’s plans
it takes strength
to stay in His hands.

It takes faith,
this quiet remaining
it takes believing
in God’s perfect timing.

It takes trust,
this knowing who God is
it takes action
to do what He says.

There is an art,
to this being still
but, it’s the only way
to know God’s will!

Faith is Speaking to You ~

Faith is Speaking To You ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Shh, do you hear it,
do you hear faith speaking
in your heart of heart’s
do you hear it whispering?

Do you hear the words,
God has just for you
do you know the plans
He has for you to do?

Do you hear the words,
deep down in your soul
give Me your life
so I can take control?

Do you hear the words,
trust in Me and believe
so the power of My spirit
in your life you can receive?

Shh, do you hear it,
faith is speaking to you
if you listen closely . . .
it will witness to you too!

Today Is Your Day Lord ~

Lord, Today is Your Day ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today is Your day Lord,
I give it to You
to do in my life
what only You can do.

I give You my mind,
to mold and to form
so You can keep it
from turning lukewarm.

I give You my heart,
to shape and contour
so You can remove
all that is impure.

I give you my soul,
to have and to own
so it can be made
Your very own home.

Today is Your day Lord,
may all that I do . . .
show my commitment
and my love for You!

Worth My Pursuing ~

Worth Pursuing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes I don’t get,
what God is doing
but, I know His reasons
are worth my pursuing.

Sometimes I’m not sure,
what God wants of me
but, I know His plans
are there for me to see.

Sometimes I don’t discern,
what God is asking
but, I know His desires
are worth the unmasking.

Sometimes I can’t imagine,
what God has in store
but, I know His answers
He wants me to explore.

Sometimes I don’t get,
what God wants me to do
but,  I know His will  . . .
is up to me to pursue!

If We’re Not To Faint ~

If We're Not to Faint ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If we’re not to faint,
if we’re not to be weak
then God’s face . . .
we must earnestly seek.

If we’re to keep walking,
if we’re not to ever quit
then to God’s will . . .
we must earnestly submit.

If we’re not to be weary,
if we’re not to ever tire
then to God’s plans . . .
we must earnestly desire.

If we’re to keep running,
if we’re not to forsake
then to God’s Word . . .
we must earnestly intake.

If we’re to mount up,
if we’re not to comedown
then to God’s ways . . .
we must earnestly crackdown.

If we’re to have strength,
if we’re not to be overpowered
then on God we have to wait . . .
so we can be empowered!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary; and they
shall walk, and not faint.”

Redeeming Our Time ~

Redeeming Your Time ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Our weekly schedules,
our daily timetables
are not with God’s . . .
remotely comparable.

For we rush head on,
into our own projects
that on God’s purposes
we’ve no time to reflect.

We have our routines,
down pat and firm
that on God’s plans
we don’t bother to affirm.

We are so regulated,
so stiff and unbudging
that we can not feel
the Holy Spirit’s nudging.

But, if we’d slow down,
our time we’d redeem
and God’s will for us . . .
will become our regime!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:16-17

“Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what
the will of the Lord is.”

When God Shuts a Door ~

old door by Simeon Hughes free phtot 2843

When God shuts a door,
He’ll open another one
and you can rest assured
He has for you, the right one.

For God won’t let you enter,
if it isn’t, His desire for you
though you may of thought
it was what, you should do.

When God shuts a door,
make a mental memo
to pray about the reasons
you’re  in a state of limbo.

For God wants you to learn,
to wait on Him and be still
so you can find what is
His good and perfect will.

When God shuts a door,
He’ll open one to go through
and you can rest assured
Jesus will be waiting for you!

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

Acts 16:7-9

“After they were come to Mysia,
they assayed to go into Bithynia:
but the Spirit suffered them not.

And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.

And a vision appeared to Paul in the night;
There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him,
saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.”

These Evil Days ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Understanding the Lord's Will - IBible Verses

In this world today,
evilness is all around . . .
and it’s time to be sure
in the Gospel we’re sound.

We must use the time,
to find what is God’s will
we need to learn to wait
to trust and to be still.

We need to understand,
His purposes and His plans
we must choose to leave
everything, in His hands.

We need to ask God,
for His help in all things
we must let the Spirit lead
no matter, what life brings.

In this world today,
evilness surrounds us
we must redeem the time
and give God, all our trust!

God’s Will ~

the-will-of-god-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some people struggle,
with knowing God’s will
some people think
they just have to be still.

Some people toil,
laboring night and day
some people say “works”
are the only way.

Some people resist,
they just can’t conceive
some people just plainly
do not believe.

Some people are busy,
doing other things
some people can’t see
what good it will bring.

Some people understand,
if God’s will they’re to know
then into their Bible . . .
they will have to go!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:16-17
King James Version

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

“That the man of God may be perfect,
thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
