I Can Do Zip ~

I can do nothing,
zip, nada, nil . . .
for I alone don’t have
the will or skill.

But, with God,
I know I can do
what’s impossible
when His strength I pursue.

I can do nothing,
zero, zilch, naught . . .
for I alone don’t have
the heart or thought.

But, with God,
what is unthinkable
with His mighty power
is accomplishable.

I can do nothing,
but, God can do it all . . .
for He has the power
on which for me to call!

All I am Able ~

When I consider,
the God of my hope
I find I am able . . .
every hour to cope.

For, His hope brings me,
strength new each day
as I go about . . .
going along my way.

When I consider,
the love of my Savior
I find I am able . . .
all moments to savor.

For, His love gives me,
a reason to trust
as I go about . . .
doing all that I must.

When I consider,
all that I’m able
it’s because my faith
in Jesus is stable!

Hat Juggling ~

We all wear various hats,
of miscellaneous kinds
we all have certain roles
that tie us down and bind.

But, when for the Lord,
we perform our tasks
He’ll help us balance them
when for His help we ask.

We all wear assorted hats,
of differing forms
we all have vast duties
each day we perform.

But, when for the Lord,
our commitments we fill
He will help us juggle them
with the strength to do His will

We all wear varying hats,
of different sorts and sizes
and in the end the Crown of Life
will be the one we prize!

That Sinking Feeling ~

Sometimes I feel I’m sinking,
my troubles seem so heavy
it’s as if they’re about to break
through a swollen, bulging levee.

I feel the rushing waters,
come roaring through my heart
and as they swiftly flow
my faith starts unraveling apart.

The waves of my fears,
begin to swirl all around
tossing my trust back and forth
till my mind’s no longer sound.

Then Jesus reminds me,
it is I, who dwells inside
and suddenly my worries
calmly begin to subside.

The danger of me losing,
all I’ve come to know and trust
no longer on my battered soul
causes my hope to be thrust.

Instead there is a quiet calm,
a peace that comes along
as Jesus reassures me . . .
it is I, who makes you strong!

Thing’s I Can’t Handle ~

I’ve heard people simply say,
God will not give me
anything I can’t handle . . .
but, with them I don’t agree.

For, I’ve looked in my Bible,
and saw how I’d be tested
once my life in Jesus . . .
became fully invested.

He said I’d face tribulation,
that I would be persecuted
and for my faith in Him
I could even be executed.

He said I’d have trials,
many worries and cares
that my very own cross
daily I’d have to bear.

So, when people tell me this,
I look right into their eyes . . .
and tell them I can’t handle things
unless His strength I excise!

In His Strength ~

When troubles waters,
start to churn and swirl
before my faith . . .
can begin to spiral.

To my Lord,
I take my distress
and with His strength
I am blessed.

When my worries,
start to push and pull
before my faith . . .
becomes void and null.

To my Lord,
I take my praise
and in His strength
I am not fazed.

When troubled waters,
are all I can see . . .
I pray to my Lord
to strengthen me!

My Faith Has Taken Me ~

Bridge by Forrest Cavale free photo #4172

My faith has taken me,
across the bridge of deep sorrow
I know it will lead me . . .
through the crossroads of tomorrow.

My faith has taken me,
through life’s troubling sea
I know it will guide me . . .
when another comes for me.

My faith has taken me,
into the darkest, lowest valley
I know it will direct me . . .
when another I have to rally.

My faith has taken me,
into the pit of grief’s despair
I know it will not leave me . . .
when another has me there.

My faith has taken me,
across spans of adversity
but, over them all I held on . . .
to the hope of eternity!

Somedays ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Your are My Strength IBible Verses

Somedays, like this one,
I think only about you, my son
somedays, I feel as if . . .
my world has come undone.

Somedays, I pray and pray,
that this is but a dream
somedays, I feel as if . . .
my tears could form a stream.

Somedays, I think about,
the times when you were here
somedays, I feel as if . . .
I still can sense you near.

Somedays, I am so sad,
my grieving makes me writhe
somedays, I feel as if . . .
there’s no air for me to breathe.

Somedays, I dream about,
the man, you were meant to be
somedays, I feel as if . . .
you’re right here next to me.

Somedays, my Lord and Savior,
I feel as if . . .  I cannot  go on
and so today it will be . . .
Your strength, I’ll drawn upon!

Strength to Rise Above ~

~ Christian poetry by deborah ann ~ icando IBible Verses

Lord, lift me up today,
help me to rise and stand
release into my life
the power in Your hand.

Make my mind stronger,
renew Your peace in my soul
remind me You are the one
who’s in complete control.

Show my weary spirit,
Your might is all I need
how strength comes to those
who let You guide and lead.

Reinforce into my life,
the power that dwells inside
remind me You’re the one . . .
who in my heart resides.

Lord, lift me up today,
help me to rise above
any weaknesses I have
with the power of Your love.

A Thousand Anxieties ~

anxiety-500x500 used with permissions

A thousand anxieties,
more than a million prayers
for the relief from our pain
the weight of our cares.

A thousand worries,
too many fears to number
so many disturbing thoughts
robbing us of our  slumber.

A thousand burdens,
some too heavy to bear
a multitude of troubles
leave their wear and tear.

A thousand concerns,
a million more to come
but with faith in Jesus
we shall overcome!

In Christ ~

I can do all things in Christ,
through Him all is made possible
there isn’t a mountain I can’t move
for in Christ I can do the impossible.

I can work all things out in Christ
in His strength, I will not pale
there isn’t a desert I can’t cross
for in Christ I cannot and will not fail.

I can go where ever I want in Christ
with Him I can walk on the sea
there isn’t a storm I can’t beat
for in Christ God’s power lives in me.

I can soar above the clouds in Christ
rise over my fears and doubt
there isn’t a worry that can take me down
for in Christ I can pray them all out.

I can do all things in Christ,
and every one of you can too . . .
you can do the impossible
if you let Him do the possible in you!

My Strength ~

Be Strong Trust God by Megan Watson fre photo #14670

Lord, my strength isn’t in my bones,
for they are too weak and frail
my strength is in the knowledge
Your Spirit in me will never fail.

My strength does not come,
from anything that I can do
for, I have very little power
if it does not come from You.

My strength cannot be found,
by going to the gym or spa
my strength is when I exercise
to You, my holy awe.

My strength is thin and feeble,
and sometimes I cannot stand
but, when I draw close to You
I feel the power of Your hand.

Lord, my strength doesn’t measure up,
when compared to Your own . . .
my burdens would be too heavy
if I had to carry them alone!

Who the Lord is to Me ~

Nothing is Impossible by Chrisna Wijaya free photo #17707

He is the First and the Last one,
I think of each and every day
He is the Creator of my soul
the Planner of my way.

He is always there for me,
I know He will always be
He was pierced and bruised
to bring healing to me.

His death bought me life,
He arouse to give me power
my freedom in Him comes
upon each waking hour.

He reigns in my soul,
His gentleness comforts me
His Word is the Light
that my heart longs to see.

He is my Redeemer and Savior,
He leads and guides my walk
when I fall He lifts me up
when weak He’s my sturdy Rock.

He is my joy, He is my peace,
He is my comfort, He is my hope
He is my Lord, He is my life . . .
He is the Anchor on my rope.

Without Him I am nothing,
with Him I am everything
for with Jesus’ strength
I can do anything!

Our Strength ~

imagesCATMXNWL

There is not a fear,
that Jesus can’t conquer
there is not an enemy
that He can’t capture.

There is not a problem,
that Jesus can’t solve
there is not a dilemma
that He can’t resolve.

There is not a burden,
that Jesus can’t lift
there is not a load
that He can’t shift.

There is not a need,
that Jesus can’t provide
there is not a sea
that He can’t divide.

There is not a darkness,
that Jesus can’t make light
there is not a sin
that He can’t make right.

There is not a moment,
that Jesus isn’t there
there is not one soul
for which He doesn’t care!

All Things ~

All Things ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s not a hunger,
that Jesus can’t satisfy
there’s not a thirst
that He won’t gratify.

There’s not a pain,
that Jesus can’t heal
there’s not an emptiness
that He won’t fill.

There’s not a burden,
that Jesus can’t bear
there’s not a concern
that He won’t pare.

There’s not a disease,
that Jesus can’t treat
there’s not a grievance
that He won’t meet.

There’s not a fear,
that Jesus can’t still
there’s not a promise
that He won’t fulfill.

There’s not a doubt,
that Jesus can’t replace
there’s not a mind
that He won’t embrace.

There’s not a life,
that Jesus can’t mend
there’s not a soul
that He won’t defend.

There isn’t anything,
Jesus won’t do in you
there’s not a thing
with Him you can’t do!

Faith ~

Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I got over that mountain of guilt,
with Jesus’ strength, I climbed over it
now my faith is whole and complete
and my soul is sound and fit.

I swam that ocean of disbelief and doubt,
with Jesus’ trust, I made it to the other side
now my faith is renewed and restored
and my life is no longer filled with pride.

I walked through that valley of shame,
with Jesus’ help, I made my way across
now my faith is full of His grace
and my eyes are focused on the cross.

I parted that sea of guilt and blame,
with Jesus’ mercy, I made it to the dock
now my faith is securely anchored
and my entire life clings to the Rock.

I pushed through that fearful desert,
with Jesus’ power, I made it all the way
now my faith is bold and brave
and my life now belongs to Him each day.

I got over all these obstacles,
I know you can get over yours too . . .
But you got to have faith in Jesus
and trust Him ~ to deliver you!

I Can Do This ~

I Can Do This ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
I can do this,
I will get through it
for I have Christ
He gives me the grit.

I can climb this,
this I can do
for I have Jesus
and His power too.

I can battle this,
yes, I will win
for I have Christ
and His strength within.

I can handle things,
this storm I can face
for I have Jesus
and His constant grace.

I can do this,
I will get through this
for I have Christ
how could I ever miss!
