Fear’s Pitfall ~

When you’re feeling,
anxious and fearful
and your thoughts
turn dreadful.

Remember God’s might,
will give you power
in those frightful
fearful hours.

When you feel,
you’ll lose control
before you leap
into that pitfall.

Remember God’s love,
is your perfect restraint
so over your fears
you may have constraint.

When you feel,
you’re going to lose it
remember to call . . .
upon the Holy Spirit!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:7

For God gave us a spirit not
of fear but of power and love
and self-control.

A Trembling Mess ~

I use to be,
panic-stricken
I once was
fear driven.

But then Jesus,
said to me
don’t be afraid
by what you see.

I use to be,
a big worry wart
I once was
anxiety’s transport.

But then Jesus,
took my cares
said they were His
alone to bear.

I use to be,
a trembling mess
but then Jesus carried
away all my distress!

Fear Fighting Faith ~

Fear fighting faith,
wins many a battle
when it’s enacted
anxiety it’ll tackle.

Fear fighting faith,
tells satan to flee
it says greater is He
living inside of me.

Fear fighting faith,
uses Bible verses
before worry
even surfaces.

Fear fighting faith,
claims victory
as soon as it feels
a little jittery.

Fear fighting faith,
is easy for you to do
now that the Holy Spirit
lives inside of you!

My Daily Journey ~

my-yearly-journey-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, in my daily journey,
to get closer to You . . .
I’m happy to see how much
my faith, in You grew.

For, I’ve grown in grace,
mercy and forbearance
as You keep teaching me
all about perseverance.

I’m learning to be content,
no matter what life brings
as You show me how to be
thankful for all things.

You’ve instructed me,
all about fruit bearing
producing in me an attitude
more giving and caring.

Lord, I know my journey,
isn’t over quite yet . . .
but, the longer that I have
the closer to You, I will get!

What Love Is ~

What is Love ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Love is patient,
love is kind
love doesn’t have
a haughty mind,

It will not boast,
it is not proud
it doesn’t stand
out in a crowd.

Love is pleasant,
it doesn’t envy
it is cheerful
always friendly.

It’s full of joy,
mercy and favor
it is faithful
never a traitor.

Love is calm,
it is peaceful
never angry
always grateful.

It’s brings light,
rays of hope
love helps others
how to cope.

Love is patient,
love is kind
for love has . . .
a forgiving mind!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

“Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself,
is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own, is not easily
provoked, thinketh no evil;”

Putting on CHRIST ~

Putting on Christ ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I’m putting on Christ,
I’m  wearing the robe of love
wrapping it around me
till it fits like a glove.

I’m going to don an attitude,
of humility and meekness
I’m going to bind myself up
with gentleness and kindness.

I’m putting on Christ,
after righteousness I’ll thirst
I’m going to hunger after
putting God in my life first.

I’m going to turn away,
from  temptation and sin
I’m calling upon the power
He gives to me within.

I’m putting on Christ,
wrapping myself in His grace
for it’s the only way I know
to finish the faithful race!

Thanksgiving Dinner ~

Thanksgiving Dinner ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Every year at this same time,
we sit at our dining tables . . .
feasting upon what has become
Thanksgiving Day staples.

We gobble down the turkey,
mashed potatoes and candy yams
then we sit back and disclaim . . .
I can’t believe how full I am.

But, this year I am not serving,
the traditional Thanksgiving fare
instead a healthy fruit salad . . .
is all I’m planning to share.

I’m going take some gentleness,
stuff it full of God’s love
along side of it will be the peace
that comes only from above.

I’ll pile high on each plate,
some joy and some goodness
right next to them I will place
some faith and some meekness.

I’ll top it off with patience,
and for the piece of resistance
I’ll pray for those whom I serve. . .
to have a lot of temperance!

~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,

In Jesus ~

 

Know Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Creation Swap photot

In Jesus there is a peace,
a  solace, a quietness
in Jesus there is a rest
a place to find calmness.

In Jesus there is a belief,
a faith, a hope, a trust
in Jesus there is a comfort
in knowing, He loves us.

In Jesus there is a stillness,
a river, a stream, a well
in Jesus there’s a certainty
in our lives, He will dwell.

In Jesus there is a way,
a truth, a light, a life
in Jesus there’s a power
to overcome our strife.

In Jesus there is a love,
a fellowship, a communion
in Jesus there is a promise
of a hallelujah reunion!

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

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

Faith Is ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

Faith is a mixture,
of sunshine and rain
of highs and lows
happiness and pain.

Faith is a blending,
of gladness and grief
of ups and downs
struggles and relief.

Faith is a fusion,
of blessings and hardships
of twists and turns
droughts and harvests.

Faith is a combination,
of hope and despair
of rises and falls
injury and repair.

Faith is a merging,
of mercy, grace and love
faith believes in all things
we can rise above!

 of your faith worketh patience.”

What Are You Sowing?

Wheat 2 by Simeon Hughes free photo #2858

Some sow to the spirit,
some sow to the flesh . . .
some will be found in the wheat
some will be left in the thresh.

Some sow seeds of goodness,
some sow seeds of evil . . .
some will be found faithful
some will be left for the devil.

Some sow seeds of love,
some sow seeds of hate . . .
some will be found victorious
some will be left at the wide gate.

Some sow seeds of generosity,
some sow seeds of greed and lust
some will be in the Book of Life
some will burn in their disgust.

Some sow seeds of repentance,
some sow seeds of sin’s design . . .
some will be found up in heaven
some will be left behind!

Have I told you lately,
you are a blessing to me
have I expressed how much
in you, God’s grace I can see.

Have I let you know recently,
how much I appreciate you
have I conveyed in actual words
my gratitude for all you do.

Have I voiced my pleasure,
of just having you around
have I said, you lift me up
whenever I’m feeling down.

Have I uttered my thanks,
for your kindness and love
have I spoken I believe . . .
you’re my angel from above.

Here’s My Heart ~

Take My Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, here is my heart,
take it and mold it
form it into something
that Your life, will fit.

Lord, here is my heart,
it’s Yours to hold
do with it something
that for You, is bold.

Lord, here is my heart,
turn it into pure gold
make it into a heart
that for You, won’t turn cold.

Lord, here is my heart,
You can have my soul too
take me, form me, mold me
to be more like You!

His Heart’s Desire ~

Love candle by Russell Matin free photo #1004

Let us not love with idle words,
that simply roll off our tongues
let us love in truthful actions
and deeds that are left unsung.

Let us not love with conditions,
that requires more of another
let us love in a forgiving measure
bracing and lifting up each other.

Let us not love over factors,
that causes us to clash and fight
let us love with reassuring hearts
filled with joy and God’s eternal light.

Let us not love with a lofty heart,
that brings or puts another down
let us love with hope and bold faith
so others can see the truth we’ve found.

Let us love with pure, honest deeds,
so our conduct awes and inspires . . .
someone to turn their life to our Lord
for, that is what His heart desires!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2: 1-3
King James Version

“Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ,
if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit,
if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being
like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord,
of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition
or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem
others better than himself.”

I Want To Be Like Jesus ~

for-those-god-foreknew CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I want to be a carbon copy,
like Jesus I want to be
I want it to be His image
that others see in me.

I want to model myself,
after the life Jesus lead
I want to make it a habit
to do exactly as He said.

I want to copy His actions,
by being patient and kind
I want to be just like Jesus
in my heart, soul and mind.

I want to duplicate His every step,
to walk in all His ways
I want to be a replica of Jesus
for the rest of my days.

I want to be a carbon copy,
of mercy, hope and grace
I want others to see peace and joy
when they look at my face!

The Stranger ~

be-kind-and-compassionate CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I saw You today,
on a strangers face
I could tell their smile
was full of love and grace.

Lord, I felt You today,
as they took my hand in theirs
it was as if they too could feel
all of my worries and my cares.

Lord, I heard from You today,
when they prayed just for me
their sweet words of comfort
brought me to my thankful knees.

Lord, I heard You today,
I felt Your very presence
in this stranger, You sent me
I got a glimpse of Your essence.

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

A Heart Full of Grace ~

Grace by Nathan Furr free photo #12440

When a heart is full of grace,
it is a heart that is kind
compassion for others
it always tries to find.

It puts on humility,
wears the cloak of patience
it dresses itself with modesty
wears the robe of justice.

It is wrapped in peace,
It’s covered in forgiveness
drapes itself with love
it’s swathed in gentleness.

When a heart is full of grace,
gratitude is its garment
the Word of God . . .
is its wardrobe requirement!

~~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12
King James Version

Put on therefore, as the elect of God,
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness, longsuffering;”
