The Best Place To Go ~

Some people look to family,
for their encouragement
some seek their pastors
for spiritual nourishment.

Some people turn to books,
offering them self-care
some search their computer
for their health and welfare.

But, I have found for me,
the best place I can go
is to my Bible daily
where living waters flow.

For between the pages,
there I find my best friend
for Jesus promised me
He’d be there til the end.

Some people turn to people,
some turn to other things
but, my Bible pages I turn
for the peace I know it brings!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Waters Healing~

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of life
makes us beg for relief.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove its own heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

We thirst for waters healing,
a peaceful resting place
where we can forget the pain
that’s so unbearable to face.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
only God can relieve . . .
the throbbing in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the anguished soul true relief!

My Soul Thirsts ~

Lord, in the aridness,
of my heart and soul
my thirst is for You . . .
to reign and take control.

I long to absorb and drink,
from Your holy Word
to feel the Living Waters
in my mind being stirred.

Lord, in the dryness,
of my daily normality
my thirst is for You . . .
to bring lasting vitality.

I long to be nourished,
with the Truth and Life
to feel Your stilling peace
dissolve my earthly strife.

Lord, my soul thirsts,
for You solely . . .
tis why I seek You
with my heart wholly!

~~~~~~

“O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;”

Stay thirsty my friend,
keep wanting more . . .
of the Living Waters
that heal and restore.

Stay drinking my friend,
from the Well of Grace
quench your thirsty souls
in God’s loving embrace.

Stay thirsty my friend,
in these days of decline
keep sipping the victory
from the One True Vine.

Stay refreshed my friend,
in the Fountain of Life
lest your faith wither
from worry and strife.

Stay thirsty my friend,
keep panting for more
of the Life Giving Waters
leading to heaven’s door!

The Living Fountain ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Thrist No More - IBible Verse

When my soul is parched,
from all the weariness . . .
when my heart cries out
enough ~ to the dreariness.

I go to the Living Fountain,
sip from the Word of hope
praying all the while . . .
Lord, give me strength to cope.

The Word’s spoken by Jesus,
are the streams of eternal life
as they ebb and flow within
they decrease my inner strife.

Anything from my Savior,
is all I need to satisfy . . .
the thirst of this drained soul
just one Word ~ will gratify.

When my soul is parched,
from all the  dreariness . . .
I read my Bible, so Jesus
can quench the weariness!

~~~~~~~~

John 4:14

“But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall never thirst;

Keep Me Thristy, Lord ~

Water Bottle by Daniel R free photo #10215

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my soul dry out
keep me in the Word
where hope runs throughout.

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my love wane or wither
keep me in the Bible
where joy flows like a river.

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my heart shrivel
keep me in the Scriptures
where peace never fizzles.

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my spirit dehydrate
keep me in the Verses
where grace never evaporates.

Keep me thirsty Lord,
let not my faith decrease or shrink
keep me in the Word  . . .
where living waters I can drink!

The Well of Life ~

Jesus the Living Water ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

There is a well,
it’s as deep as it is long
it is full of compassion
it holds salvation’s song.

It stores living waters,
it’ll never run dry or out
it contains eternal hope
it satisfies, souls in drought.

There is a well,
it quench’s those thirsty
it is full of kindliness
it overflows with mercy.

It holds everlasting joy,
it’s the well of eternal  life
it’s where all can draw
peace instead of strife.

There is a well,
just one sip from its water
I promise you . . .
your life ~ Jesus will alter!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 12:2-3

“Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and not be afraid:
for the Lord Jehovah is my strength
and my song; he also is become my salvation.

Therefore with joy shall ye draw
water out of the wells of salvation.”

Living Water ~

Water Bottle by Daniel R free photo #10215

Are you happy,
are you satisfied
does your life now
leave you gratified?

Or are you wanting,
something else
something you can’t find
within yourself?

Are you comfortable,
are you content
have all that you need
in any event?

Or are you finding,
there has to be more
though you have it all
you still feel poor?

Then my friends . . .
I know what you need
there are living waters
that will never recede.

All you have now,
will turn into rust . . .
but, Jesus is someone
you can always trust.

He’ll quench your thirst,
with hope He’ll fill you
and a new life He’ll breathe
right into you too.

So come my friends,
be filled with His fullness
from the water of grace
drink in Jesus’ goodness!

The Bridge ~

faith_1024-500x500

There is a bridge you can take,
it leads to water’s living . . .
it’s there you’ll find peace
merciful and forgiving.

Over trials and tribulations,
it will take you across
the span of His loving hands
will lead you to the cross.

It is a bridge of assurance,
trouble waters will not last
and for you He has a future
much better than the past.

The hardships in this life,
will take faith to get through
and Jesus is the bridge linking
His Father right to you!

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.”

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 run always 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, just like a deer!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 42:1-2

“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?”

Thirsty Souls ~


The soul thirsts,
after rivers deep
pant like gasps
from inside seep.

Murmurs heard,
from parched lips
needing more
more ~ than tiny sips.

Living waters,
or living hell
flowing streams
or dried up old well.

The arid soul,
is keen and eager
for its full share
not what is meager.

Spring of hope,
scorched creek bed
the thirsty soul needs
the Fountainhead.

Bitter waters,
God will soon heal
water of life flows
from Calvary Hill.

The soul thirsts
after rivers deep
but only God . . .
makes them seep!

~~~~~~

Exodus 17:3

“And the people thirsted there for water; and
the people murmured against Moses, and
said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought
us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children
and our cattle with thirst?”
