God’s Hand Of Faithfulness ~

God’s hand of faithfulness,
can be seen in my life
though the times of rest
and those full of strife.

He held on to me,
with His merciful hand
as He revealed to me
what was for me His plan.

God’s hand of faithfulness,
led and guided me
through the days of peace
and those angry as a sea.

He wrote my name,
on His palm He inscribed
His promise to me
to always be at my side.

God’s hand of faithfulness,
has always been loyal
through the good times
throughout all my trials!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:

Isaiah 49:16

Behold, I have graven thee
upon the palms of my hands;
thy walls are continually before me.

When Overwhelmed ~

When you’re overwhelmed,
with trepidation and fear
no harm will come your way
if you draw Me close and near.

For he who makes Me,
his safe, dwelling place
will be sheltered under
the wings of My grace.

When your heart is laden,
from life’s strain and stress
no injury will befall you
when into Me you press.

For he who abides in Me,
I will shield and protect
so with My peace and rest
you’ll be able to connect.

When you’re inundated,
with the problems you encounter
come to Me for your strength . . .
so with it you I may empower!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:14-16

Because he hath set
his love upon me,
therefore will I deliver
him: I will set him on high,
because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me,
and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honour him.

With long life will I satisfy him,
and shew him my salvation.

Drop By Drop ~

Drop by drop,
hope drips in . . .
til goose bumps
form on my skin.

Shivers of glory,
tingles of peace
as each droplet
God releases.

Drip by drip,
hope seeps in
til my elation
forms a big grin.

Smiles of bliss,
cheers of delight
with each trickle
my soul it excites

Hope drips in,
drop by drop . . .
causing my heart
with joy to flip-flop!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

Now the God of hope
fill you with all joy and
peace in believing, that ye
may abound in hope,
through the power
of the Holy Ghost.

All Is In God’s Control ~

Lord, I am so thankful,
all is in Your control
oh, how knowing this . . .
my heart it consoles.

For, if it weren’t for You,
being all knowing
I would be alarmed . . .
at the way things are going.

Lord, I am so grateful,
Your wisdom is without limit
oh, how unearthing this . . .
calms my restless spirit.

For, if I did not believe,
You have a perfect plan
I would be frightened . . .
by the evilness of man.

Oh, Lord I am thankful,
everything You control . . .
will work out for the good
of each and every soul!

~~~~~~

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things
work together for good to
them that love God, to them
who are the called according
to his purpose.

Spiritual Air ~

Some times a spiritual breath,
we all need to take in . . .
to expel the soot and grime
of living in a world full of sin.

We need to slowly inhale,
the promises of God Word
so we can draw upon . . .
the truth we have heard.

Sometimes we all need,
to come up for spiritual air . . .
so God our hearts and minds
He can renew and repair.

We need to oxidize our souls,
with all of God’s goodness
till we’re at peace and rest
with His almightiness.

Sometimes we all need,
to take a long breather . . .
so we can remind ourselves
just why we are a believer!

~~~~~~~~

Job 33:4

The spirit of God
hath made me,
and the breath
of the Almighty
hath given me life.

Who Is Hindering Your Faith ~

Who is hindering your faith,
who is standing in the way
what is holding you back
why are you running away?

Who is causing you to doubt,
who is robbing you of peace
what has a grip on you
why can’t from it you release?

Who is messing with your trust,
who is making you confused
what has you in a turmoil
why is your mind consumed?

Who is keeping you in fear,
who is behind your dread
what is playing with your beliefs
why is it messing up your head?

Satan is that who,
he’s that what and one . . .
but, if you submit and resist him
from you he will flee and run!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:7

Ye did run well;
who did hinder you
that ye should not
obey the truth?

James 4:7

Submit yourselves
therefore to God.
Resist the devil,
and he will flee from you.

Fraught With Worry ~

Often we find our hearts,
are fraught with worry
our thoughts turn into . . .
a nervous, swirling flurry.

We fret and we fuss,
over what we can’t control
until fear becomes . . .
embedded into our soul.

Often we find our minds,
are overwhelmed by dread
our thinking gets clouded . . .
by the anxiety in our head.

We get so caught up in,
our fearful trepidation
until fear’s spiny fingers . . .
takes over our circulation.

Often we find our hearts,
letting worry into our mind
keeping us from God’s peace
to discover or to find!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication
with thanksgiving
let your requests be made
known unto God.

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

My Burden is Light ~

My Burden is Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If Jesus’s burden is light,
why has man made it hard
why did His simple plea
they choose to disregard?

Instead they put on,
the yoke of their own laws
regulations of religion
laden with pagan flaws.

The yoke of Jesus,
is one of peace and rest
not full of rituals
so one can feel blessed.

Come, Jesus said to all,
your load I will carry
over man made rules
don’t fuss or worry.

I came to set you free,
from all your holy rites
for My yoke is easy
and My burden it is light!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:30

” For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.”
