Holding Fast ~

Lord, help me to hold fast,
give me the stability
to grasp onto my faith
with grace and humility.

Help me to be steadfast,
give me quiet persistence
let me not grow weary
when I meet resistance.

Lord, help me to be firm.
so that I will not waiver
let me cling to the hope
You are my found Savior.

Help me to be secure,
keep me peacefully steady
with encouraging words
let me always be ready.

Lord, help me to hold fast,
to the trust in You I’ve found
keep me calmly resilient . . .
in spreading my faith around!

~~~~~~

Galatians 6:9

“And let us not be weary
in well doing:
for in due season we shall
reap, if we faint not.”

Throwing In The Towel ~

Some days I feel like quitting,
just throwing in the towel
some days I don’t want to think
of another rhyming vowel.

Some days it’s so hard,
putting words into rhyme
some days I feel as if . . .
I’m just wasting my time.

But, then I read my Bible,
and the verses seem to jump
helping me to get over
my poetry writing slump.

For, God keeps telling me,
to continue, to carry on
how I need to keep doing
what I know He has begun.

Some days I feel like quitting,
blogging how and what I feel
but, then God encourages me
and restores my rhyming zeal!

for your work shall be rewarded.”

Prayer Make’s a Difference ~

Prayer Makes A Difference ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When our prayers,
get no response . . .
in prayer we need
to remain ensconced.

We mustn’t ever give up,
or from prayers bail out
they’ll make a difference
if we have no doubt.

We cannot lose heart,
in prayer we must persist
then fear and worry
we’ll be able to resist.

We mustn’t be weary,
or faint in our prayers
we need to remember
Jesus wants our cares.

When with our prayers,
God is slow to respond
expect an answer . . .
though it be prolonged!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 18:1

“And he spake a parable
unto them to this end,
that men ought always
to pray, and not to faint;”

The Cost of Endurance ~

Track-Running-Race_Sven-Hoppe_i1 from common photo archive

The Bible says to run the race,
with endurance in our steps
to jump over any obstacles
to pass by the risky objects.

This race is not an easy one,
there’s a cost for enduring
most of us can’t stay the course
because sin can be so alluring.

But, we are called to this race,
to be patient and persistent
and in our daily run with faith
we must be pressure resistant.

Before we step onto the track,
we must warm-up our endurance
then work-out any resistance
so we’ll run with God’s assurance.

There will be many roadblocks,
each day we’ll face head on
but, if we trust in God’s power
to them we won’t be drawn.

In this race we’ll have to give up,
things that bring us pleasure
but, when we set them aside
we’ll add to our eternal treasure.

The faithful race is long and hard,
no one said it was trouble-free
but, if we keep our eyes on the goal
we’ll run it filled with joy and glee!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 9:24-25
King James Version

“Know ye not that they
which run in a race run all,

but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.

And every man that striveth
for the mastery is temperate

in all things. Now they do it
to obtain a corruptible crown;

but we an incorruptible.”

A Conquering Soul ~

A Conquering Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It takes courage,
a spirit willing to go the length
it takes confidence
letting God supply the strength.

It takes commitment,
a determination to do God’s will
it takes patience
a willingness to wait and be still.

It takes persistence,
a resolve to keep pressing on
it takes diligence
for the faithful race to be won.

It takes focus,
eyes always kept on the goal
it takes Jesus
to have a conquering soul!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:14
King James Version

“I press toward
the mark

for the prize of the high
calling of God

in Christ Jesus.”
