Guard My Feet Lord ~

guard-my-feet-lord-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Guard my feet Lord,
keep them from stumbling
help them to be strong
keep them from wobbling.

Guide my feet Lord,
keep them going straight
help them to proceed
through the narrow gate.

Protect my steps Lord,
keep them from tripping
make them sturdy
keep them from slipping.

Lead my feet Lord,
secure my faith walk
help them to march
to the words I talk.

Guard my feet Lord,
let them not deviate
to the world’s ways
let them not acclimate!

1 Samuel 2:9

“He will keep the feet of his saints,
and the wicked shall be silent
in darkness; for by strength
shall no man prevail.”

Which Path Are You On ~

What Path Will You Take ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There are many roads,
that are ahead of us
most will lead to doubt
some will lead to trust.

There are plenty of paths,
that we can choose to take
some will lead to heaven
most hold hell, as our fate.

They are countless avenues,
that we will come upon
most will bring us down
some will keep us pressing on.

There are many intersections,
that we will come across
some will lead straight to Jesus
most lead away from the cross.

There are many freeways,
each day to travel on . . .
but, there is only one highway
that will take us to God’s Son!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 35:8
King James Version

” And an highway shall be there,
and a way, and it shall be called
The way of holiness;
the unclean shall not pass over it;
but it shall be for those:
the wayfaring men, though fools,
shall not err therein.

Never Forsaken ~

My Sheep used with perrmison Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
even when you think I don’t care
I understand all your feelings
how much you have to bear.

I’ll never leave or desert you,
even when you think I’m far away
I know each step you’ve taken
I have been with you all the way.

I’ll never leave or forget you,
even though you feel I’m not there
I’m always watching out for you
you have always been in My care.

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
your every thought I know and see
I’m always here to listen  to you . . .
can you say the same ~ for Me?

Teach The Little Children ~

Teach The Little Children ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Teach the little children,
while they are still young
to give thanks to the Lord
in every song that is sung.

Teach them to pray,
for the Holy Spirit’s filling
tell them that it is more
than just a onetime feeling.

Teach them to read and study,
how God would have them go
let them know in His Word
the way He will always show.

Teach them to understand,
for them, God has a plan
let them know it’s not the same
as the world has for man.

Teach them to respect,
themselves and others too
remind them God is looking
at what they say and do.

Teach them to set their sights,
on their heavenly treasures
not the ones here on earth
reeking of worldly pleasures.

Teach them to love God,
with all their heart and soul
let them know Jesus died
so they’d be complete and whole.

Teach them not just on Sundays,
but each and everyday . . .
just how narrow is the gate
so their tender hearts won’t stray.

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 34:11
King James Version

“Come, ye children, hearken unto me:
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.”

My Shepherd’s Care ~

My Sheep ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Besides still waters, He leads me,
to pastures green, He guides
my Shepherd’s care for me
never wanes, ebbs or subsides.

He feeds me the Good News,
with words that sustain me
He fills me with wisdom
so His truths I can see.

To the land of milk and honey,
where heavenly manna flows
my Shepherd takes me to where
my love for righteousness grows.

He corrects with tender affection,
sometimes with His rod
but, I know His staff of love
will steer me to the throne of God.

Into the valley He takes me,
where I can sip from His well
the spring of Life-Giving waters
keeps my soul from the pit of hell.

Besides still waters, He guides,
to pastures green, He leads me
my Shepherds’ care will never cease
until with Him in heaven I’ll be.

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:2
King James Version

“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.”

I am A Student ~

I am Just a Student ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I am just a student,
I study to become wise
I look for the truth
with wonder in my eyes.

I pray every morning,
for the Holy Spirit’s leading
so He’ll open up my mind
to everything I’ll be reading.

I consider and I examine,
every Word and every line
I look for God’s promises
and claim them all as mine.

As I look up the meaning,
to the Words I highlight
I see my own darkness
while blessed in His light.

There’s something to be said,
when you study on your own
and one day to all my questions
I know God, will make known.

But for now, I am His student,
I read my Bible every day
the Holy Spirit is my teacher
who guides me along the way!

Did You ~

Quietness used with permission IBible Verses

Did you feel the Lord’s hand,
in your life today
did you feel Him gently
nudging you His way?

Did you feel His tender touch,
in your soul today
did you notice Him tenderly
guiding you His way?

Did you feel the Lord’s breath,
in your ear today
did you hear Him softly
calling you His way?

Did you feel the Lord’s love,
in your heart today
did you sense Him quietly
beckoning you His way?

Did you feel the Lord,
in your life today
did you know He wants you
to always feel this way?

Humble Me ~

Live to Know God used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, humble me in Your mercy,
let fairness be my guide
for I know without Your justice
from my sins I cannot  hide.

Give to me Your understanding,
let Your truth direct my day
for I know without Your guidance
I would surely lose my way.

Show me Your compassion,
help me  to know Your will
for I know without Your goodness
I could never possess the skill.

Test my faith with consideration,
let Your wisdom speak out to me
for I know without Your grace
Your righteousness I couldn’t see.

Teach me about forgiveness,
let Your kindness in me thrive
for I know without Your passion
Your Spirit in me wouldn’t be alive.

Lord, humble me in Your mercy,
let Your love dwell deep within
for I know You died for me
so I wouldn’t perish in my sin.

Lessons To Be Taught ~

Plans of the Lord used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Oh, conflicted soul be quieted,
don’t you know it’s for naught
battles won ~ battles lost
are lessons to be taught.

To the youth, as you once were,
the fight today is still the same
just a different time in space
with a new and modern name.

Speak the truth, do not deny,
the war that goes on and on
from generation to generation
or else the conflict won’t be won.

Rebellion is the ammunition,
pride and greed the smoking gun
tis the same war against the Lord
as when the world first begun.

Lead the way, light the path,
guide the youth before they turn
to the world for their escape
lest in hell ~ they shall burn!

Show Me Thy Ways ~

Show Me Thy Ways ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, show me Thy ways,
reveal them to me
lead my soul
to where I should be.

Show me Thy light,
be by my side
the road is rough
the path is wide.

Show me Thy ways,
help me to know
guide my life
the way it should go.

Show me Thy truth,
hold on to my hand
the hills are too steep
the mountains so grand.

Show me Thy ways,
each day direct me
the valleys are deep
the path I can’t see.

Lord, show me Thy truth,
teach me Thy ways
let Thy light lead me
for the rest of my days!

Salvation’s Hill ~

Shadow Feet by Scarlet Plocher free photo #5029

Lord, let my feet walk the path,
where Your steps once laid
so that I may come to know
the road on which You prayed.

I know that it won’t be easy,
to keep up with Your pace
but, I know You will help me
as Your footprints, I try to trace.

Lead me in my hearts pursuit,
as I seek to follow You
for I know the way is narrow
and not all are getting through.

Lord, keep and guide my footsteps,
on the path for me You paved
so our feet can one day meet
on the hill where I was saved.

show me how to hover after every storm
so I may rest in the peace that it brings.

Spirit Lead ~

Spirit Lead ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each day when I wake up,
I get out of my bed
place my feet on the floor
and pray to be Spirit lead.

I make my way to the kitchen,
pour myself a cup of coffee
and I ask the Lord . . .
“Make Your ways clear to me.”

I go upstairs to my office,
turn on my desk light
picking up my Bible . . .
I pray for clarity of sight.

I don’t want to read,
His Word for the sake of it
I want my eyes to be opened
so in Christ, I’ll be a better fit.

I pray as I study,
over what God has to say
I carry what I’ve learned
in my heart through the day.

Each night when I retire,
I lay down in my bed
and I pray to the Lord . . .
“Tomorrow may I be Spirit lead!”

He Guides My Feet ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ steps IBible Verses

He guides my feet,
over the mountain tops
onto high ground
He lets me rest and stop.

He leads my steps,
into the green vales
where living waters flow
without halt or fail.

He shines His light,
ahead of my footsteps
the Word directs my way
His love it projects.

He takes me to places,
to share the Good News
He sends me on a path
so His truth I can pursue.

One day we’ll be together,
one day ~ we shall meet
until then I pray . . .
He’ll keep directing my feet.

Father, Hear Our Prayer ~

Praying Hands by Megan Isaacson free ohoto #13320

Father God, hear our prayer,
keep us in thy loving care
if we should wander off too far
lead us back to where You are.

As we go about our busy day,
be our guide, lead our way
if we happen to lose our direction
lead us back without objection.

Let us seek Your instruction,
help us over each obstruction
if we should falter or hesitate
lead us back to the narrow gate.

Father God, hear our prayer,
protect us from the wolves out there
if we should follow even one . . .
lead us back ~ to Your Son!

My Days Are The Lords

Lord, You know my days,
the number of my years
You know the exact time
that my life will be here.

I pray I will use it wisely,
giving honor to Your name
I ask that You will help me
not to bring You any shame.

Lord, You have given me,
this place for me to dwell
You’ve given me a chance
to choose heaven over hell.

I pray I’ll be a good steward,
in the seasons allotted me
I ask for Your guidance
so in eternity, we can be.

Lord, You understand me,
and know my every side
You’ve given me Your light
to be my constant guide.

I pray I will not falter,
on the narrowest of ways
I ask that You will lead me
all my nights and all my days.

Lord, let me not stray,
from You while I am here
for You are my Shepherd
who I trust with all my years.
