The Path Toward Peace ~

The path toward peace,
is one paved in pain
with plenty of loss
for our spiritual gain.

On it there is suffering,
sorrow and persecution
but, in Jesus we all have
hope and restitution.

The path toward heaven,
is full of ups and downs
plenty of highs and lows
we have to get around.

On it there are setbacks,
barricades and barriers
but, they only make us
for Jesus, stronger warriors.

The path toward joy,
is one we can truly trust
for Jesus our Savior . . .
has gone on it before us!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:13

“But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are
partakers of Christ’s sufferings;
that, when his glory shall be
revealed, ye may be glad
also with exceeding joy.”

Along My Journey ~

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

Lord, along my journey,
to get closer to You
there were lots of obstacles
I had to maneuver through.

You took me down the road,
of sorrow and grief
so I would learn to turn
to You for peace and relief.

You put me on the path,
of heartache and loss
so I would know the pain
of carrying my own cross.

You brought me to places,
I did not want to go
so that Your mercy
I’d truly come to know.

Lord, along my journey,
of hope and salvation
You always had for me
heaven as my destination!

~~~~~

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.”

Grief Is Like an Ocean ~

Grief is Like An Ocean ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Grief is like an ocean,
it ebbs in and out
some days it’s grueling
others it’s a wipeout.

Grief is like a stream,
that keeps flowing
some days it rushes
others it’s forbearing.

Grief is like the wind,
that seems not to ease
some days it’s gusty
others it’s a breeze.

Grief is like a storm,
that rages on and on
some days it pours
others it’s withdrawn.

Grief is a process,
that defies the span of time
for the loss of a loved one
lasts a whole lifetime!

My Grief Comfort Verses

Psalm 18:2

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress,
and my deliverer; my God, my strength,
in whom I will trust; my buckler,
and the horn of my salvation,
and my high tower.

Matthew 5:4

” Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.”

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea, I will
uphold thee with the right hand
of my righteousness.”

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 23:4

“Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me”

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall
be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be
any more pain: for the former things
are passed away.”

and so many more . . .

Under the Shadow ~

Under The Shadow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is a shadow,
that comes from up above
we walk under it . . .
when we lose someone we love.

The void casts upon our souls,
the worst of our fears . . .
leaving us so heartbroken
our words, become our tears.

For, underneath the shadow,
there is but pain and grief
and the gloom that we feel
seems to have no real relief.

Laying beneath the shadow,
there is a raw darkness . . .
making everything around us
seems to dull, in its starkness.

But God has promised us,
this valley we’d get though
so remember while under it . . .
He is right there with you!

~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4

“Yea, though I walk
through the valley
of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me.”

Missionary Eyes ~

Light Shine ~ CHRISTian poety by deborah ann

Lord, help me to see,
with missionary eyes
so I may observe . . .
other’s heartfelt cries.

Let me bring hope,
to someone today
by showing to them
the Life and the Way.

Let my inspire,
just one, if You will
how they can learn
to wait and be still.

Send someone to me,
who feels all alone
so I may show them
the way to the throne.

Give me a chance,
to help carry a load
so someone’s burden
I can help unload.

Lord, give to me,
missionary eyes
let me be Your light  . . .
to the heart that cries!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

We Are All Wounded ~

Walking Wounded ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
We are all wounded,
from the battles of life
we all carry with us
scars from the strife.

We have all suffered,
the pain of depression
each of us has felt
the sting of rejection.

We are all wounded,
damaged in some way
we all carry with us
the hurts of yesterday.

We all need healing,
from the harm done
we all need someone
to whom we can run.

We are all wounded,
in need of comforting
we all need Jesus . . .
to ease our suffering!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 51:12

“I, even I, am he
 that comforteth you:”

Time . . . Does Not Heal ~

Healed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

It’s not time ~ that heals,
it’s not about a new day
it’s about God’s mercy . . .
taking our suffering away.

It’s not about a brighter day,
of another tomorrow . . .
it’s about God understanding
the true depth of our sorrow.

It’s not time ~ that we need,
it’s not about another year
it’s about God collecting . . .
in His bottle our every tear.

It’s not about a certain period,
of suffering and grief
it’s about God’s grace. . . .
bringing broken hearts relief.

It’s not time ~ that will mend,
the wounds of  our despair
it’s believing Jesus will heal
all the pain, that we bear!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:22
 
“But Jesus turned him about,
and when he saw her,

he said, Daughter,
be of good comfort;

thy faith hath made
thee whole.
And the woman was made
whole from that hour.”

How Many More Tears Lord ~

Tears Collected ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, how many tears,
of mine have You collected
how many more droplets
are still to be projected?

How much of my sorrow,
have You in that jar . . .
how many more tears
will flow to You from afar?

How many more will spill,
from each puffy eye
how many more tears Lord
do I have left to cry?

How much more pain,
will I have to go through
until that jar overflows
with my teary eye dew?

Lord, how many tears,
do You still have to collect
how many more to You . . .
will I still need to direct?

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:8

“Thou tellest my wanderings:
put thou my tears into thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?”

Behind the Pain ~

Behind The Pain ~ CHRISTian poetry by deboranann ~ used with permission IBIble Verser

God has a reason,
for this, I know . . .
He has a plan
for these tears, I sow.

God has something,
for me to learn
He has a truth
for me to discern.

God has a purpose,
for all of this pain
He has a new insight
for me to gain.

God has a point,
for me to find
He has a revelation
to fill my mind.

God has a reason,
for this, I know . . .
He has a design
for my joy to grow!

~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

I am Precious ~

Worth God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permision IBible Verses

I know to God I am precious,
for He sent to me this trial
His grace shall be sufficient
in this, there can be no denial.

Though my faith is being tested,
through the furnace I need to go
when all is said and done
there’ll be a heavenly afterglow.

All this pain and suffering,
are but for a passing moment
for the blood of Jesus . . .
shall be my eternal atonement.

One day I know I will see,
my Lord’s glorious appearing
and that is why this trial . . .
to me ~ is worth enduring.

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:7

“That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious
 than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise
and honour and glory
at the appearing of Jesus Christ:”

Reaping What We Sow ~

give-me-heart-of-sympathetic-tender_ used with permission IBible Verses

If everyone followed,
the rule that is golden
then to these words
they would feel beholden.

If you want to be forgiven,
you must learn to forgive
if you want encouragement
affirmation you must give.

If you feel hurt and wounded,
in need of a gentle touch
you will need to be sensitive
when to pain, others clutch.

If need to be understood,
you must show others grace
if you want compassion
mercy you need to embrace.

If you don’t like gossip,
then watch what you say
If you don’t want to be judged,
then turn your cheek away.

If you’re in need of friends,
with sympathetic ears
yours too must be willing
to be thoughtful to all it hears.

If you want to be treated kindly,
you must first treat other’s so
for, I’ve read it in the Bible . . .
we shall reap what we sow!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:12
King James Version

“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would
that men should do to you, do ye even so to them:
for this is the law and the prophets.”

Let Grace Carry You ~

Grace Unmerited Favor by Luis Rivera free photo #11776

Let grace carry you,
when you are weary
let it bring you hope
when you are teary.

Let grace carry you,
it’s arms are open wide
let it be your light
your everlasting guide.

Let grace carry you,
thru the storms of life
let it bring you calm
in the midst of strife.

Let grace carry you,
your burdens it’ll bear
let it remove from you
your every single care.

Let grace carry you,
past the pain and grief
let it comfort you
with everlasting relief.

Let grace carry you,
in the arms of eternal love
let it bring you the peace
from our Father up above!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16
King James Version

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace,

that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help in time of need.”

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!
