2021 A Year of Contentment ~

This year I’m going to be,
peacefully content . . .
no matter what happens
I’m not going to lament.

Instead I will be,
hopefully satisfied
so my faith in Jesus
can be magnified.

This year I’m going to be,
faithfully trusting . . .
for nothing on this earth
leaves me wanting.

Rather I will be,
firmly unwavering
as the world around me
continues unraveling.

This year I am going to br,
joyfully content . . .
regardless of the turmoil
or to what its extent!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-18

Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh, and
the lust of the eyes, and the
pride of life, is not of the
Father, but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof: but he
that doeth the will of God
abideth for ever.

Little children, it is the last time:
and as ye have heard that antichrist
shall come, even now are there many
antichrists; whereby we know that
it is the last time.

Word Garden ~

There is a place of calm,
for all of us to find . . .
a place to just let go
and find peace of mind.

Mine is in God’s garden,
amongst His Word I do reap
promises of green pastures
the gathering of His sheep.

Strolling along the path,
I bow down to smell a rose
the scent of His undying love
in my heart forever grows.

As I walk the narrow way,
I stop to pick a verse . . .
I’m in awe by His goodness
in His grace I’m immersed.

I stop and sit upon the bench,
under the arbor of my soul
I rest in the knowledge . . .
God is always in control!

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.

In The Midst Of A Storm ~

In the midst of a storm,
Jesus is there . . .
He is ready to take
our fear, our care.

He hears our cries,
for His aid and relief
His ready to help us with
our lingering disbelief.

In the middle of the turmoil,
Jesus is waiting . . .
He is able to ease
our apprehensions grating.

He hears our lamenting,
our weeping and wailings
for He understands . . .
our weaknesses and failings.

In the midst of a storm,
Jesus is right there . . .
in the center of its eye
He hears our every prayer!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:26-27

And he saith unto them,
Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith? Then he arose,
and rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.

But the men marvelled, saying,
What manner of man is this,
that even the winds and
the sea obey him!

Oh, If I Could Fly Away ~

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d soar into my Savior’s arms
there I would find my quiet rest
and be safe from all that harms.

I would take off and reside,
under the shadow of His wings
I’d be free from all the strife
living in this world often brings.

Oh, if I could fly away,
like an eagle I’d mount and rise
and climb to where His peace
would calm my fearful cries.

I would go right up to Him,
lay my burdens at His feet
and with Jesus I would find
my everlasting retreat.

Oh, if I could fly away,
if I had wings like a dove
I’d soar right up to heaven
and rest in His eternal love.

I would climb so ever high,
till I found His stillness
I would dive into His calm
and sop up His quietness.

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d take you along with me . . .
and together we’d find rest
throughout all of eternity!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:6

“And I said, Oh that I had wings like a

at rest.”

My Hope Quiets Me ~

My Hope Quiets Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My hope quiets me,
when I get restless
it calms me down
if I get breathless.

My Hope never fails,
it keeps me strong
it brings me such comfort
all day and night long.

My hope is in God,
His mercy and favor
my hope is in Jesus
my forever Savior.

My hope elates me,
I’m ever so grateful
it makes me always
eternally thankful.

My hope is in the future,
the things that will come
when Jesus peacefully . . .
sets up His kingdom!

Good Morning Spring ~

Good Morning Spring ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Good morning Spring,
I’m so glad you’re here
with the sweet melodies
you sing into my ear.

I am so thankful,
for your sunny rays
for the fragrant blooms
you drift along my way.

Good morning Spring,
I have missed you so
thank you for easing
winter’s every woe.

Thank you for leaving,
a carpet of warmness
for letting me soak up
your peaceful calmness.

Good morning Spring,
I’m so glad God sent you
for you are the season
He uses to renew!
