The Fear Factor ~

the-fear-factor-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Fear plugs the heart,
stops the flow of peace
it clogs up the calm
only God can release.

Fear hijacks the hope,
we need to be still
it robs the soul
of knowing God’s will.

Fear rips the faith,
right out from under us
it cripples the mind
of its eternal sureness.

Fear disables the joy,
of our salvation
it shuts down the bliss
of our future elation.

Fear stifles the peace,
of a mind that’s sound
it zaps the power
that in God we found!

The Valley of Hope ~

in-the-valley-of-hope-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is a valley,
I call hope . .
it’s where I gather
strength to cope.

I take my time,
as through it I go
praying all the way
God’s plans I’ll know.

I often rest,
along side a hill
it’s where I learn
how to be still.

I amble slowly,
around each bend
asking God all along
more faith He’ll send.

There is a valley,
hope is its name
where springs of trust
in God’s peace I claim!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 104:10

“He sendeth the springs
into the valleys, which
run among the hills.”

Remember Your First Love ~

remeber-your-first-love-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Remember your First Love,
how you once felt
how the sound of His name
made your heart melt?

Remember the hope,
how it lifted up your soul
when by His stripes
you were made whole?

Remember the joy,
how much you were elated
when your life to Jesus
you first dedicated?

Remember the grace,
how it washed over you
how God’s loving mercy
made everything new?

Remember your First Love,
how Jesus made you feel?
If not, it is time for you
to get back your zeal!

May Christ abide,
in your heart always
may He be the one

may your love for Him
be firmly grounded.

May Christ dwell,
in your heart today
may your faith in Him
always be on display!

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

A New Heaven and Earth ~

a-new-heaven-and-earth-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A new heaven,
a new universe
where in God’s peace
all will be immersed.

New stars there’ll be,
new galaxies too
all of God’s glory
will shine through

A new earth,
pristine and fresh
no scars on it
from acts of the flesh.

A new city,
with streets of gold
gates of pearls
opening to His fold.

A new relationship,
between God and man
for all who’ve trusted
in salvation’s plan.

A new condition,
broken hearts no more
no sorrow, no death
only bliss galore.

A new Heaven,
a new earth too . . .
oh, won’t that be
a glorious view!

2 Peter 3:13

“Nevertheless we,
according to his promise,

Heaven Is Surreal ~

heaven-is-surreal-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Heaven is going to be,
awesome and surreal
for it will be a place
peacefully ideal.

It will be in Heaven,
from burdens we’ll be free
it’ll be our true happy place
full of laughter and glee.

Heaven will be a place,
where all will be healed
it is where God’s glory
will be fully revealed.

It will be in Heaven,
from our labors we’ll rest
it’ll be a place of joy
for those once oppressed.

Heaven is going to be,
filled with happiness
life will be never-ending
in the place of gladness!

God Is Our Shelter ~

God is our shelter,
in the storms of stress
He brings comfort

God is our shelter,
in the storms of sorrow
He gives us the joy
to face the morrow.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of fear
He brings peace
by drawing to us near.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of grief
He gives us strength
brings our hearts relief.

God is our shelter,
in all the storms of life

In God’s Training Room ~

in-gods-training-room-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

In God’s training room,
there’s a lot for us to learn
for, He wants to teach us
He’s with us at every turn.

We wrestle with the pain,
weep long into the night
so God can show us
the joy in His morning light.

We confront our sorrow,
the source of our fears
so God can collect for us
in His bottle all our tears.

We struggle with our past,
we scramble with its strife
so God can help us see
the temperance of this life.

In God’s training room,
He’s teaching us to know
all thing work for good
to them who love Him so!

~~~~~~~

“And we know that all things
work together for good

Peace Perfectly ~

peace-perfectly-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If we’re to have peace,
in our daily life
we need to stay fixed
on God, not our strife.

For, hearts that are stayed,
on God’s tranquility
are the hearts trusting Him
in all totality.

If we’re to have,
peace perfectly
than our minds must seek
Him thirstily.

For minds that are focused,
on God’s serenity
are the minds that believe
in Him entirely.

If we want to have peace,
our eyes need to be
steady on God . . .
not on the things we see!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 26:3

“Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.

God’s Adoption Plan ~

chosen-and-loved-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Jesus conquered the grave,
defeated death . . .
so we don’t have to fear
our dying breath.

The victory is His,
to which we are a heir
one day in Heaven
we will see Jesus there.

A free gift we were given,
when satan, Jesus defeated
and now by His grace
our faith is completed.

Blameless and holy,
before God, we will stand
for, Jesus’ death fulfilled
His Father’s adoption plan.

Jesus conquered,
what we could not do . . .
through His precious blood
in Him, we’re made new!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:4-5

” According as he hath chosen
us in him before the foundation
of the world, that we should
be holy and without blame
before him in love:

Having predestinated us
unto the adoption of children
by Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good pleasure
of his will,”

If You Want To Be Transformed ~

if-you-want-to-be-transformed-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If  you want to be transformed,
your mind you must renew
worry, disbelief and fear
you’ll need to put behind you.

Thoughts of faith and trust,
must be your way of thinking
putting confidence in God
should be your only reasoning.

Any unbelief or doubt,
you will need to get rid of
instead your mind must dwell
on God’s peace and perfect love.

You’ll need to think obedience,
if you want to know God’s will
your stubbornness and pride
you’ll need to silence and still.

If you want to be transformed,
then you must be teachable
into the depth of your heart
God must be reachable!

~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed
to this world:
but be ye transformed
by the renewing
of your mind,
that ye may prove
what is that good,
and acceptable,
and perfect,
will of God.”

At Your Feet ~

at-your-feet-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, some days I get so tired,
I feel as if I’m beat
and so all my weariness
I place right at Your feet.

As soon as I release,
my troubles into Your care
I no longer feel as if . . .
their mine alone to bear.

When my days are hard,
and my nights are long
its You whom I count on
to help me to be strong.

As soon as I turn over,
all of my worries to You
there is not a single thing
I feel we cannot do.

When I look for comfort,
to ease my weary mind
Lord, I know at Your feet
peace and rest I will find!

Counselor to the meek
the Son was born of flesh
to give power to the weak.

Our everlasting Father,
knows our fallen state
so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born
