In Hopeless Times ~

In Hopeless TImes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In hopeless times,
put your faith in God
for your trust in Him
He will applaud.

For desperate times,
requires His strength
to go the distance
no matter its length.

In hopeless times,
seek God’s help and aid
keep your faith intact
so not to be dismayed.

For bleak times,
require His grace
to go the distance
no matter the race.

In hopeless times,
turn to your Father
to Him you’ll not be
a pest or bother.

For troubling times,
will be more peaceful
when you let God know
in Him you’re needful.

In hopeless times,
let prayer surround you
put your faith in God
trust what He will do!

Psalm 50:15
King James Version

“And call upon me
in the day of trouble: I will

deliver thee, and thou
shalt glorify me.”

My First Love ~

Come to Me by Jason Harper free photo #3244

Under the arbor of my soul,
with my First Love, I sit and rest
the fragrance of His grace
reminds me of how much I’m blessed.

On the trellis of my mind,
He supports my every limb
He reinforces His love for me
so I may lean evermore on Him.

Beneath the lattice of my heart,
there lies an undying devotion
and the mercy He has for me
consumes me with raw emotion.

He is the framework of my faith,
my life in Jesus is forever entwined
and the love I found under the arbor
is of His plan and by His design!

~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11
King James Version

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

I’ve Been Hacked!

Hazard by Tyler Thompsom free photo #5428

I’ve been hacked,
my computer has been attacked
and I’m pulling our my hairs
with the when’s, how’s and where’s.

I’ve been compromised,
my password has been modified
and I’m going crossed eyed
now that my access has been denied.

I’ve been taken down,
I’m not much fun to have around
and I’m doing all I can not to cry
while I figure out the who and why.

I know the devil is behind this,
he’d have my poetry go into the abyss
and he hates what I have to say
for I speak of the truth and the way.

I’ve been hacked,
my computer has been attacked
but I know the Lord has His reason
and I will be back in due season!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please bear with me as I figure out
this intrusion for my seclusion   🙂


Every Good and Perfect Gift ~

Good and Perfect Gifts by Jeremiah Bauer free photo #18650

Every good and perfect gift,
is given out of love . . .
creation, salvation, election
comes from God above.

He rewards the faithful,
with the Bread of Life
Jesus, Savior, Friend
the end to all man’s strife.

God gives without condition,
to all those who believe
help, comfort, eternal joy
when Jesus they receive.

He grants to every solider,
a place of perfect rest
pastures green, eagle wings
to see how much they’re blessed.

Every good and perfect gift,
comes like manna from above
mercy, grace, forgiveness
and for all ~ His eternal love!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 1:17
King James Version

“Every good gift
and every perfect gift
is from above,
and cometh down from the
Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.”

My Hope ~

Hope Restored by Michael McFatridge free photo #5529

My hope doesn’t disappoint,
it never lets me down
my hope I can count on
I know it’s always around.

My hope is full of stillness,
it brings calmness and peace
my hope is everlasting
for it will never cease.

My hope is perpetual,
forever it goes on
my hope is never-ending
no way will it be gone.

My hope is in the promises,
that I find in His Word
my hope is my salvation
from the truth I have heard.

My hope has no real measure,
it can’t be tied up or bound
my hope is inexhaustible
it can always be found.

My hope fills me with power,
it is strong and steadfast
my hope is in the Lord Jesus
and into eternity it will last!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 71:5
King James Version

“For thou art my hope,
O Lord God:
thou art my trust from my youth.”

Tears In A Bottle

There is a bottle up in heaven,
filling up with all your tears
drop by drop the Lord collects
the full harvest of your fears.

There is not a tear that falls,
where He is not aware
for He understands each drip
and the cause of your despair.

When tears of sadness,
are followed up with grief
He garners them in His vial
and sends His peace for relief.

He knows every wound,
as He gathers up your pain
and all your hurtful tears
to Him become like rain.

He reaps each tender trickle,
with His mercies from above
collects them in His bottle
and caps them  ~ with His love.

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:8
King James Version

“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?”

If I Had Wings ~

Oh, if I had wings . . .
I’d fly off without delay
and from my troubles
I would get far, far away.

I’d sail over the storm,
above the howling wind
oh, if I had wings . . .
I’d fly up, to be with Him.

Oh, if I had wings . . .
I’d escape all I fear
and sense true peace
as to Him, I drew near.

I’d soar with the eagles,
and find my true resting place
oh, if I had wings . . .
I’d fly on the arms of His grace.

Oh, if I had wings . . .
Lord, I’d fly right to Your throne
and lean on the knowledge
with You, I’m never alone!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:6
King James Version

“And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove!
for then would I fly away, and be at rest.”

Fear Not ~

Fear Not ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Fear not My child,
for I am always with you
do not be afraid
for My strength will ensue.

Fear not My child,
for I am your God and Savior
do not be alarmed
for you shall have My favor.

Fear not My child,
for I will not forsake thee
do not be troubled
for I am able to calm the sea

Fear not My child,
for I hold you in My right hand
do not be frightened
for in My grace you will stand.

Fear not My child,
for My goodness never fails
do not be anxious
for My mercy never pales!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:1
King James Version

The Lord  is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
the Lord  is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?

Thirsty Souls ~


The soul thirsts,
after rivers deep
pant like gasps
from inside seep.

Murmurs heard,
from parched lips
needing more
more ~ than tiny sips.

Living waters,
or living hell
flowing streams
or dried up old well.

The arid soul,
is keen and eager
for its full share
not what is meager.

Spring of hope,
scorched creek bed
the thirsty soul needs
the Fountainhead.

Bitter waters,
God will soon heal
water of life flows
from Calvary Hill.

The soul thirsts
after rivers deep
but only God . . .
makes them seep!

~~~~~~

Exodus 17:3

“And the people thirsted there for water; and
the people murmured against Moses, and
said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought
us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children
and our cattle with thirst?”

All Other god’s Are Idols

All Other God's Are Idols ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

All other gods are just idols,
worthless, useless and feign
they hold no power or value
nor can they rule or reign.

There’s only One God I know of,
He made the heavens and earth
and the Good News I bring you
will show His magnificent worth.

Honor and majesty are before Him,
strength and beauty is His domain
the sea swells to His greatness
Holier than Holy is His blessed name.

He has brought salvation to the world,
to all the people of every nation
soon He will pour out His judgment
and each will receive their due ration.

The universe will tremble before Him,
when on His magnificence all eyes gaze
the trees in the forest will rejoice
every living creature will sing His praise.

Mercy and truth He will bring,
than all other gods will burn away
for all the people will finally see
His righteousness on judgment day.

All other gods are just idols,
worthless, useless and feign
and I have a burning need to tell you
my God will soon come to  reign!

“For all the gods
of the peoples are idols”
