Hopelessly Impossible ~

Got a huge problem,
don’t know what to do
no finger nails left . . .
on which to chew?

Pulling your hair,
biting your lip
beginning to lose . . .
on life your grip?

Well don’t you let,
what you can’t do
take away what God
has planned for you.

For, what to you is,
hopelessly impossible
with God it is . . .
effortlessly possible.

So turn your problem,
over to His care . . .
for, there’s no concern
He’s not willing to bear!

~~~~~~

Mark 10:27

“And Jesus looking upon them saith,
With men it is impossible,
but not with God:
for with God
all things are possible.”

Daily Striving ~

I lean on God’s grace,
each day I need more
for, I know it’s able
to heal and restore.

I rely on God’s mercy,
every day to move on
I put all my confidence
knowing more can be drawn.

I depend on God’s peace,
each day to get by
for, I know on its stillness
I can always rely.

I hang on to God’s promise,
of His returning one day
I keep my eyes focused
on the Life, Truth and Way.

I feed on God’s Word,
each day to survive
for more of His strength
I constantly strive!

Jesus’ Promise To Us ~

Holy Spirit,
Jesus’ promise to us
may in Your strength

to fully dissipate.

Holy Spirit,
our soul’s Comforter
may Your power
we fall under.

You bring us hope,
fill us with grace
the joy of our salvation
in You we embrace.

Holy Spirit,
our ever-present Helper
may we always have
Your mighty temper!

Sticky Note to God ~04.15.18~


His Sufficient Grace ~

When I’m weak,
and oh so weary
when the road ahead
is long and dreary.

To my Lord,
I cry for more grace
so what’s before me
I can bravely face.

When I’m anxious,
feeling low and down
when my world
comes crashing down.

To my Lord,
I cry for more power
to take me through
every troubled hour.

When I’m tested,
to my very limit
when afflicted
in soul and spirit.

To my Lord,
for my grace I cry . . .
for, He has all I need
to help me get by!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly
therefore will I rather glory
in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.”

When Satan Deceives ~

When satan whispers,
calmly in your ear
God’s has left you
see, He’s not here.

Don’t you indulge,
in this wily deceit
for God promised
to be your retreat.

When satan wails,
loudly in your ear
See, all your prayers
God does not hear.

Don’t you believe,
in this cunning lie
for God listens to
your every cry.

When satan comes,
with whispers to deceive
wail right back at him . . .
just in whom you believe!

1 John 4:4

“Ye are of God, little children,
and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you,

The Holy Spirit’s Power ~

Holy Spirit,
we all need You
to help us daily
to battle through.

Without Your strength,
to overcome
to each temptation
we would succumb.

Holy Spirit,
God’s gift to us
in Your power
we need to trust.

Without Your courage,
to make us willing
to the world ways
we’d still be living.

Holy Spirit,
who dwells within
only You can give us . . .
power over sin!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 1:8

“But ye shall receive power,
after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you:”

1 Corinthians 10:13

“There hath no temptation taken you
but such as is common to man:
but God is faithful, who will
not suffer you to be tempted
above that ye are able;
but will with the temptation
also make a way to escape,
that ye may be able to bear it.”

I Rely On My Faith ~

I rely on my faith,
each day to be strong
I trust it even when . . .
things are going wrong.

I depend on prayer,
every day I am alive
for, I know in this world
it’s the only way to survive.

I lean on God’s grace,
each day I need more
for, I know it’s able
to heal and restore.

I draw on God’s Word,
every day I study and read
for, I know I’ll be blessed
when the verses I heed.

I rely on my faith,
prayer and God’s sufficing grace
my hope is found in my Bible
when it’s truth I embrace!

Afternoon Ponderings ~03.09.18~


Stop And Pray Each Day ~

 

Each day we need,
to stop and pray
and listen to . . .
what God has to say.

We need to pray,
for His mercy anew
so temptation
we can subdue.

We need to pray,
for more grace
so the enemy
we can face.

We need to pray,
for His favor
if our faith
should waiver.

We Need to pray,
for His healing balm
to help keeps us
still and calm.

We need to pray,
for His power
so we’ll have victory
no matter the hour.

We need to pray,
for His wisdom
to give unto us
a clear vision.

Each day we need,
to continually pray . . .
for we never know
what’ll come our way!

“Pray without ceasing.”

It’s Hard Work ~

Lord, its not easy
following after You
it’s hard work
staying to You true.

It’s not easy,
giving up my pride
it’s hard work
in You to abide.

Lord, it’s not easy,
staying on the narrow way
it’s hard work
bearing my cross everyday.

It’s not easy.
being patient in the race
it’s hard work
relying on Your grace.

Lord, it’s not easy,
staying to You committed
it’s hard work
keeping my life submitted.

But, I know it will be,
all worth it in the end
so from You I’ll not leave
to become the world’s friend!

But, Take Heart ~

Take heart,
faith, do not lose
don’t let the evil-minded
give you the blues.

For, peace can be yours,
if you so elect
when onto Jesus
your eyes you direct.

Take heart,
joy, do not let go of
don’t let the enemy
overpower His love.

For, hope is yours,
in a world bearing none
for over the wicked
Jesus already won.

Take heart,
hold on to your faith and trust
for Jesus overcame . . .
the evilness all around us!

~~~~~~~

John 16:33

I have said these things to you,
that in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation.
But take heart;
I have overcome the world.”

Fear’s Pitfall ~

When you’re feeling,
anxious and fearful
and your thoughts
turn dreadful.

Remember God’s might,
will give you power
in those frightful
fearful hours.

When you feel,
you’ll lose control
before you leap
into that pitfall.

Remember God’s love,
is your perfect restraint
so over your fears
you may have constraint.

When you feel,
you’re going to lose it
remember to call . . .
upon the Holy Spirit!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:7

For God gave us a spirit not
of fear but of power and love
and self-control.

I Will Strengthen You ~

I Will Strengthen You ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I will strengthen thee,
how simple this sounds
but, it can be so hard
when our troubles abound.

For, often we fail to take,
a hold on God’s promise
perhaps because in us . . .
there’s a little doubting Thomas.

I will strengthen you,
how easy this would be
if our pride we’d let go
His strength we could see.

But, we are too busy,
keeping our ego’s inflated
that God’s strength and power
often becomes deflated.

I will strengthen thee,
is God’s promise to us
if only we would . . .
in Him place our trust!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed;
for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand
of my righteousness.”

If We Walk In The Light ~

If we’re to shine the Light,
then why more like Jesus aren’t we
why is His reflection in us . . .
so hard for others to see?

If we’re to act as the Light,
then why don’t we share
why to the Good News
don’t we make more people aware?

If we’re to live in the Light,
then why aren’t we a witness
why aren’t we spreading the truth
to those still living in darkness?

If we’re to be the Light,
then where is our power
why do we let satan . . .
our strength erode and devour?

If we walk in the Light,
our hope would radiate
and Jesus’ love for the world
we would always advocate!

~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

The Gospel of Life ~

Thank you Lord,
for the Gospel of Life
for giving hope
instead of strife.

For the light,
of Your love
for Your Spirit
from above.

Thank you Lord,
for true liberty
for over sin
having victory.

For forgiveness,
and Your grace
for the chance
to seek Your face.

Thank you Lord,
for life eternal
for saving me from . . .
hell’s infernal!

May He bless you,
with joy and gladness
so today you can find
in Him, your happiness.

May the Lord today,
put hope in your heart
may He restore your faith
upon the new day start.

May He bless you,
with His grace and favor
so all of His goodness
you will come to savor.

May the Lord today,
smile down on you
with rays of His love
upon your heart anew!

That Weighted Down Feeling ~

Carrying a heavy load,
shoulders getting weak
is the weight of your worries
causing your knees to creak?

Problems mounting up,
in way over your head
is the weight of your cares
turning your feet into lead?

Anxiety has your heart,
missing a beat or two
is the weight of your stress
weighing on your mind too?

Well, I have a cure,
for that weighted down feeling
one that will bring to you . . .
peace, hope and healing.

On Jesus cast your cares,
and your anxieties too
for, with His strength
He will empower you!

He Calms the Storms ~

He calms the storms,
the waves He can hush
so those in distress
into His arms will rush.

He redirects the wind,
tells it where to go
so those fearful
His peace may know.

He stops the roar,
of an angry sea
so those hopeless
His power can see.

He silences the clap,
in the thunder
so those frightened
can see His wonder.

He answers the cries,
of those afraid . . .
so they’ll learn in Him
not to be dismayed!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:29

“He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still.”

and of good courage;
dread not,
nor be dismayed.”

Called~

Called out of the dark,
into His Light
called out of blindness
into new sight.

Called out of sin,
into holy living
called out of selfishness
into thanksgiving.

Called out of wanting,
into being satisfied
called out of despair
into being gloried.

Called out of the world,
into everlasting life
called out of fear and doubt
into giving Jesus our strife.

Called out of trepidation,
into hope and peace
called out of uselessness
into being God’s mouthpiece.

Called out of the darkness,
into His marvelous Light
called out of weakness
into His power and might!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 2:9

” But ye are a chosen generation,
a royal priesthood,

hath called you out
of darkness
into his marvellous light;”

Hopefully, Joyful ~

Lord, once again
You proved to be faithful
and once again to You
I am truly grateful.

For, You have taught me,
how to cast my cares
onto You with my pleas
and my thankful prayers.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be trusting
and to my aide today
You faithfully came rushing.

You assured me,
for me You’d be here
to ease all my anxiety
and alleviate my fear.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be loyal
tis why today . . .
I’m hopefully, joyful!
