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 . . .
you’ll hear God whisper 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.”

New Year Prayer ~

All things New by Michael McFatridge free photo #11721

Lord, this year help me,
to walk watchfully . . .
let my every footstep
be made cautiously.

Let me choose the path,
of the least resistance
from the foolish way
let me keep my distance.

Let me make the most,
of each day before me
help me to take time
to spend only with Thee.

Let me be ever watchful,
of Satan’s wicked  tricks
so into His evil snares
I’ll not fall or trip.

Lord, this year help me,
to wait and to be still
until I understand . . .
what is Your perfect will!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-17

“See then that ye walk circumspectly,

These Evil Days ~

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

In this world today,
evilness is all around . . .
and we must 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 be still.

We need to understand,
God’s purposes and 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
with Godly wisdom and 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.”

I am My Brother’s Keeper ~

I am My Brothers' Keeper  CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
I am my brother’s keeper,
I help him to understand
I encourage him to put
his life into God’s hand.

I am my sister’s keeper,
I help her to see the light
I encourage her to grow
to keep Jesus in her sight.

I am my neighbor’s keeper,
I pray for their daily needs
I tell them to always listen
to follow where God leads.

I am my mother’s keeper,
in her old age I help her out
I hold her hand when lonely
to calm her fears and doubt.

I am my father’s keeper,
I lift to God, his very soul
I pray each day and night
Jesus will make him whole.

I am my children’s keeper,
I listen to their concerns
I pray as they become adults
God’s will, they may discern.

The Lord is my keeper,
He is with me every day
He watches over me . . .
so souls to Him,  I can sway.

May God Bless ~

May God Bless ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

May God bless you,
every single day

may His grace
empower you.

May your soul,
be calm and still
may you strive
to do His will.

To Be That Deer ~

To Be That Deer ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, may I be that deer,
that pants after You
may Your living waters
in my life, keep running true.

May I thirst after You,
more and more each day
may I find Your mercies
as I go along my way.

May I long to seek You,
to know Your perfect will
may You be the strength
keeping me calm and still.

May I sip from the brook,
flowing with eternal grace
may it be Your undying love
my heart, cries to embrace.

Lord, may my life reflect,
my desire to be near
may my soul pant . . .
after You, like that deer!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 42:1-2
King James Version

“As the hart panteth
after the water brooks,

so panteth my soul after thee,
O God.

My soul thirsteth for God,
for the living God:

when shall I come
and appear before God?”

Half-hearted Trust ~

Half-Hearted Trust ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Half-hearted trust,
is like wholehearted doubt
whenever we think
we can’t figure God out.

Our part is to believe Him,
His part is to lead
but, it’s not going to happen
if His will we don’t heed.

We need to be confident,
that God will do His part
we must be convinced
with the wholeness of our heart.

You either trust Him with all,
or everything with nothing
and if you’re half-hearted
He’ll know you’re bluffing.

This you’ll have to ask,
when you need comprehending
“Am I going to lean on God’s . . .
or my own understanding?”

~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 3:5
King James Version

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

A Conquering Soul ~

A Conquering Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It takes courage,
a spirit willing to go the length
it takes confidence
letting God supply the strength.

It takes commitment,
a determination to do God’s will
it takes patience
a willingness to wait and be still.

It takes persistence,
a resolve to keep pressing on
it takes diligence
for the faithful race to be won.

It takes focus,
eyes always kept on the goal
it takes Jesus
to have a conquering soul!

Philippians 3:14
King James Version

“I press toward
the mark

for the prize of the high
calling of God

in Christ Jesus.”

I am But a Vapor ~

i-am-but-a-vapor-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I am but a vapor,
a puff of steam in the air
so, I give to the Lord
all on earth I have to bear.

I may be here today,
but tomorrow I may not be
so, I lay up my treasures
in what I cannot see.

I know not His will,
for the days of my life
so, I give to the Lord
all of my daily strife.

God could have me live,
to a hundred or more
but, then again tomorrow
I could be at death’s door.

I know not the future,
my days are in His hands
so, I rest in the comfort
of His eternal plans.

I cannot add any time,
or even take some away
so, I give to the Lord
my every living day!

~~~~~~


James 4:14

“Whereas ye know not
what shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapour,
that appeareth for
a little time,
and then vanisheth away.”
