Dispel Your Despair ~

If your faith is steadfast,
rooted and grounded
when trials come your way
in joy you’ll be surrounded.

For in the very midst,
of your worldly care
counting it all for joy
will dispel your despair.

When in Jesus,
you are truly content
you’ll experience joy
that is heaven sent.

For, whether in sickness,
or in perfect health
joy will bring to you
everlasting wealth.

Joy is not an option,
it’s something God gives
to those where His Spirit
securely abides and lives!

~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in
believing, that ye may abound
in hope, through the power
of the Holy Ghost.”

God Has My Back ~

I have personal needs,
individual wants I lack
but, God always has
my spiritual back.

I trust Him to provide,
for me every day
the patience to keep me
on the narrow way.

I know He will grant,
me with His grace
to meet head on
the trials I face.

I have faith knowing,
He will give me power
to overcome temptation
my every waking hour.

I have many needs,
personal wants I lack
but, I always get wisdom
whenever God I ask!

~~~~~

James 1:4-5

“But let patience have
her perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and entire,
wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God, that giveth
to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him..”

A Trembling Mess ~

I use to be,
panic-stricken
I once was
fear driven.

But then Jesus,
said to me
don’t be afraid
by what you see.

I use to be,
a big worry wart
I once was
anxiety’s transport.

But then Jesus,
took my cares
said they were His
alone to bear.

I use to be,
a trembling mess
but then Jesus carried
away all my distress!

A Gospel-Driven Life ~

A Gospel-driven life,
is a life worth living
its full of power
for it knows its calling.

It’s a life full of hope,
it is Christ-driven
it knows by His grace
it has been forgiven.

A Gospel-driven life,
is one full of light
it uses God’s Word
so darkness it can fight.

It’s a life committed,
to the Truth and Way
it is Spirit-driven
it knows not to stray.

A Gospel-driven life,
sets its mind on above
it finds perfect peace
resting in God’s love.

Romans 15:4

“For whatsoever things
were written aforetime

Winning The Fight ~

Each days a battle,
we must fight
against the darkness
with God’s light.

Against the forces,
lead by the devil
against his armies
saying good is evil.

Our spiritual enemies,
are all around us
to their wicked ways
they want us to adjust.

But, we must stand,
for what we believe
and their evil lies
we must not receive.

Each day it’s a battle,
to shine God’s light
we’ll need His full armor
if we’re to win the fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Fear Fighting Faith ~

Fear fighting faith,
wins many a battle
when it’s enacted
anxiety it’ll tackle.

Fear fighting faith,
tells satan to flee
it says greater is He
living inside of me.

Fear fighting faith,
uses Bible verses
before worry
even surfaces.

Fear fighting faith,
claims victory
as soon as it feels
a little jittery.

Fear fighting faith,
is easy for you to do
now that the Holy Spirit
lives inside of you!

Wrestling With God ~

Some people wrestle,
with God’s will
some find it so hard
to wait and be still.

But, those who stop,
their endless struggling
will find God’s will
isn’t really so puzzling.

Some people scuffle,
when disappointed
some end up being
with God disjointed.

But, those who quit,
their constant battling
will find God’s ways
aren’t really so baffling.

Some people wrestle,
with God and His ways
but, those who trust Him
are blessed all their days!

~~~~~~

Genesis 32:24-26

” And Jacob was left alone;
and there wrestled a man
with him until the breaking
of the day.

And when he saw that he
prevailed not against him,
he touched the hollow of
his thigh; and the hollow
of Jacob’s thigh was out
of joint,
as he wrestled with him.

And he said, Let me go,
for the day breaketh.
And he said, I will
not let thee go
except thou bless me.”

Omnipotent ~

God is omnipotent,
He is mightily skillful
He does what He wills
He is effectively powerful.

God is more than able,
to do what is impossible
whenever He speaks
He makes all things possible.

God with stretched out arm,
created all living-things
the heavens and the earth
their kingdoms and their kings.

There is not anything,
that God’s will cannot do
even satan and his army
His mightiness can subdue.

God is omnipotent,
He gave to us the power
to overcome the world . . .
right up to the final hour!

~~~~~~

“But Jesus beheld them,
and said unto them,
With men this is impossible;

My Shepherd’s Care ~

He goes ahead of me,
my safety comes first
He leads me to springs
to quench my thirst.

He keeps His eyes out,
for any danger ahead
He guides me to pastures
where I can be fed.

He knows where I’m at,
if I should get lost
He will seek me out
no matter the cost.

He knows if I’m tired,
He sees my weakness
He cares and loves me
for my own uniqueness.

 He is my Shepherd,
He can be yours too
if you will let Jesus . . .
lead and guide you!

It’s Not About the Storms ~

It’s not about the storms,
we find ourselves in
it’s about if they help us
to avoid every kind of sin.

It’s not about the winds,
that blow us around
it’s about if they help us
to keep our minds sound.

It’s not about the rains,
flooding through our life
it’s about if they help us
to give God our daily strife.

It’s not about the tempests,
on us being thrust
it’s about if they help us
in God to rely and trust.

It’s not about the weather,
the wind, rain or tempest
it’s about if they help us
to find God’s peace and rest.

It’s not about the storms,
nor how wind-whipped our boat
it’s about whether we used . . .
our Bible, to help keep us afloat!

To Keep Pressing On ~

to-keep-pressing-on-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

To keep pressing on,
to Jesus we need to press in
to keep on, keeping on
we need to run away from sin.

To reach the high calling,
on God we must keep our eyes
to reach up to heaven
we need to focus on the prize.

To get to the goal,
to our Savior we need to cling
to get to the finish line
we must grow our eagle wings.

To obtain the reward,
on the Holy Spirit we need to rely
to obtain the treasure
our worldly desires we must deny.

To keep pressing on,
to Jesus we must give Him our all
to keep on, keeping on
on God’s power we need to call!

~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-15

” Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended: but this
one thing I do, forgetting those
things which are behind,
and reaching forth unto
those things which are before,

I press toward the mark for
the prize of the high calling
of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us therefore, as many
as be perfect, be thus minded:
and if in any thing ye be
otherwise minded, God shall
reveal even this unto you.”

The Spirit of Truth ~

the-spirit-of-truth-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The Spirit of truth,
God gave to you
He is your guide
for all that you do.

He is full of power,
He’s mighty and strong
He’s full of light
He’ll not lead you wrong.

The Spirit of truth,
is all-wise, all-knowing
He’ll intercede for you
with His groaning.

He is everywhere,
ever-present, ever-near
He will give you courage
to face your every fear.

The Spirit of truth,
will keep pursuing you
until you see the light
of all things true!

~~~~~~

John 16:13

“Howbeit when he,
the Spirit of truth,
is come, he will guide you
into all truth: for he
shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever he shall hear,
that shall he speak:
and he will shew you
things to come.”

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!

Lift Me Up Lord ~

lift-me-up-lord-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling down
I need You to turn
my spirits around.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling blue
I need a pick me up
like only You can do.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling low
I need You to bring
back salvation’s glow.

Lift me up Lord,
for I’m feeling bleak
I need Your strength
for I am just too weak.

Lift me up Lord,
I humbly ask . . .
for without Your power
I’m not up to the task!

in the sight of the Lord,

Bible Crunches ~

Today I’m exercising,
going to let it rip
going to strengthen
tighten up faith’s grip.

I’ll go all the way
get Scripture sculpted
so my belief in God
can never get corrupted.

I’ll do Bible crunches,
tone up my Gospel flab
so I can be ready
to fight off Satan’s jabs.

I’ll do a full workout,
I’m going to optimize
so my trust in God
can’t be compromised.

Today I’m exercising.
going to spiritually stick it
for, I’ll be working out . . .
with the Holy Spirit!

Mountain Climbing ~

mountain-climbing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We all have mountains,
we need to move or propel
but, our doubt in God
we must first dispel.

Some of them are so tall,
we get dizzy just thinking
how we’re to reach the top
without falling or fainting.

Some of them are so rugged,
moving them seems impossible
that we forget with God
all things are truly possible.

Some of them are so steep,
they seem life threatening
that we can’t get beyond
our fear and trembling.

We all have mountains,
we need to move or get over
but, first our fear and doubt
to God, we must handover!

~~~~~

Mark 11:23

“For verily I say unto you,
That whosoever shall say unto
this mountain, Be thou removed,
and be thou cast into the sea;
and shall not doubt in his heart,
but shall believe that those
things which he saith shall
come to pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith.”
