The Path of Truth ~

Lord, today I need
to know what is Your will
and until You show me . . .
I’ll just wait and be still.

I need Your guidance,
for the road ahead
I need the assurance
I will be Spirit lead.

Lord, today I need,
to heed what You say
so on the path of truth
I will be able to stay.

I need to learn to wait,
for the right directions
I need You to teach me
how to pay attention.

Lord, today I need to know,
what You’d have me to do
for I don’t want to walk . . .
down this road without You!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:5

“Lead me in thy truth,
and teach me: for thou art
the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day”

How Troubling to God ~

I wonder how troubling,
to God, that it is . .
that when we need advice
we don’t go to Him, for His?

I wonder if He scratches,
His head in amazement
to how with waiting on Him
we’ve become so impatient.

I wonder how disturbing,
to God, that it is . . .
that when we need strength
we don’t go to Him, for His

I wonder if He shakes,
His head in utter confusion
as to why we think we can do
anything without His inclusion.

I wonder how distressing,
to God, that it is . . .
that when we need direction
we don’t go to Him, for His?

I wonder if He moves,
His head from side to side
thinking how much we need
to learn in Him to abide.

I wonder how we would be,
if in God we would just trust
I wonder if then we’d see . . .
just how much He loves us!

that trust in him.”

Prayers For You My Friend ~

God put you my friend,
on my heart today
He told me for you
He wanted me to pray.

So I went to Him,
while on my knees
and sent up for you
theses heartfelt pleas.

Oh, Father whatsoever,
is Your perfect will
till my friend knows
help them to be still.

Take away their fears,
guard their heart and mind
so that on this journey
your peace they can find.

Be with them always,
do not leave their side
let the Light in Your Word
be their constant guide.

Give them Your power,
the courage to press on
let them claim victory
in the name of Your Son.

Help them not to get tired,
in the battle they must fight
let them feel energized
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

Oh, Father I believe,
you listen to our prayers
and so I come to You  . . .
with my friend’s earthly cares!

If It’s The Lord’s Will ~

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I shall
if it’s His plan
it’ll prevail.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
it will be
if it’s His vision
I’ll see.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I can
if it’s His purpose
He’ll plan.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
He’ll show
if it’s His design
I’ll go.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I’ll be excepting
if it’s His time
it’ll be a blessing!

Whatever Is God’s Will ~

Whatever is Your will,
Lord, I am asking You
in this situation . . .
to bring it into view.

Whatever is Your plan,
You have awaiting me
in this circumstance. . .
I pray soon it I’ll see.

Whatever is Your desire,
Lord, I am truly seeking
in this predicament . . .
for Your Spirit’s leading.

Whatever is Your purpose,
let me know Your intentions
in this dilemma . .
shed light on Your directions.

Lord, whatever is Your will,
I pray for You to reveal

1 John 5:14-15

“And this is the confidence
that we have in him,

Man’s Plans ~

You may have plans,
you want to pursue
you may have ideas
brand spanking new.

But God’s purposes,
are the ones to prevail
and His intentions
you won’t be able to derail.

You may have a vision,
you want to maintain
you may have dreams
you want to attain.

But God’s designs,
cannot be thwarted
His will for your life
cannot be aborted.

You may have plans,
but only God will decide
the steps you will take
when He is your guide!

Wrestling With God ~

Some people wrestle,
with God’s will
some find it so hard
to wait and be still.

But, those who stop,
their endless struggling
will find God’s will
isn’t really so puzzling.

Some people scuffle,
when disappointed
some end up being
with God disjointed.

But, those who quit,
their constant battling
will find God’s ways
aren’t really so baffling.

Some people wrestle,
with God and His ways
but, those who trust Him
are blessed all their days!

~~~~~~

Genesis 32:24-26

” And Jacob was left alone;
and there wrestled a man
with him until the breaking
of the day.

And when he saw that he
prevailed not against him,
he touched the hollow of
his thigh; and the hollow
of Jacob’s thigh was out
of joint,
as he wrestled with him.

And he said, Let me go,
for the day breaketh.
And he said, I will
not let thee go
except thou bless me.”

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!

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!

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!

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
