When My Heart is Troubled ~

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
I gratefully go to God
with my pleas and prayers.

When my heart is faint,
when my mind has unrest
I pray for God’s peace
upon my first request.

When my heart is heavy,
when my mind has doubt
I pray ceaselessly believing
God will work things out.

When my heart is weary,
when my mind’s full of fear
I pray asking my Father
to drawn me close and near.

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
at Jesus’ feet I leave them
with my thankful prayers!

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by
prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let
your requests be made
known unto God.”

The Voice of Thanksgiving ~

May the voice of thanksgiving,
be heard joyfully today . . .
may words of gratefulness
be sung heartily as we pray.

May our heartfelt thoughts,
offer God His due praise
may we be grateful
as our thanks to Him we raise.

May the voice of gratitude,
be heard loud and clear
may our humble thanks
be detected by every ear.

May our praises be told,
at our dinner tables today
may our thanks transcend
beyond Thanksgiving Day.

May the voice of thanksgiving,
be our joyful noise today . . .
may our words of gratitude
be heard by God everyday!

May you give a joyful shout,
on this Thanksgiving Day
may your elation be seen
as you go about your way.

May gladness fill your heart,
for all God has given
may you remind yourself
just why you are forgiven.

May your thankfulness flow,
in a chorus of gratitude
may the joy of your salvation
reflect in your attitude.

May your praise be heard,
across Thanksgiving’s table
may you proclaim to all
God supplies our every staple.

May you give a joyful shout,
one filled with gratefulness
may you give God due thanks
for His loving graciousness!

Grateful Every Day ~

grateful-every-day-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

We don’t need a special day,
to show we are thankful
for every day to God . . .
we need to be grateful.

We can come together,
any day of the year
and share the cause behind
our joy and good cheer.

We can give our thanks,
no matter the season
a special holiday
needn’t be our only reason.

We can enter into,
the gates of thanksgiving
anytime, anywhere
without a single misgiving.

For, God doesn’t care,
when or how we show
our thankfulness to Him
He just wants to know!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 100:4

“Enter into his gates
with thanksgiving,
and into his courts
with praise:
be thankful unto him,
and bless his name.”

The Bread, Way, Truth and Life ~

the-bread-way-truth-and-life-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

As we gather,
on Thanksgiving Day
lets not make light
when our thanks we pray.

We need to be,
genuinely grateful
for all things
we must be truly thankful.

We need to express,
our thanksgiving
with praise and joy
sans any misgiving.

We need to thank,
our Father above
for sending His Son
out His pure love.

We need to express,
our joy and elation
for the freedoms
of our salvation.

We need to convey,
to God each day
our thanks for the Bread
the Truth, Life and Way!

~~~~~~~

John 6:35

“And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me shall
never hunger; and he that
believeth on me shall
never thirst.”

John 14:6

“Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.”

Beyond Thanksgiving Day ~

beyond-thanksgiving-day-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Thanksgiving is more,
than food and football
it goes way beyond . . .
turkey on the table.

Thanksgiving isn’t about,
just one meal we share
it goes way further . . .
then a dinner prayer.

Thanksgiving is about,
each day of the year
making sure our praise
God is able to hear.

Thanksgiving isn’t about,
a single day with family
it goes way past . . .
our sated apathy.

Thanksgiving is about,
being thankful for all things
no matter what in this life . . .
to your table that it brings!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

More Than We Can Imagine ~

more-than-we-can-imagine-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

More than we can understand,
more than we can conceive
is what God can do for those
who trust in Him and believe.

More than we can ever think,
more than we can ever dare
is what God can do for those
who give Him, their every care.

More than we can fathom,
more than we can measure
is what God can do for those
who in heaven lay their treasure.

More than we can imagine,
more than we can recognize
is what God can do for those
who their thanksgiving vocalize.

More than we can understand,
more than we can describe
is what God can do for those
when in Him, their hearts abide!

Tis The Season For Thankfulness ~

tis-the-season-for-thanksgiving-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

Tis the season . . . .
for inward reflections
a time to share
outward expressions.

A time to be,
for all things thankful
a time to convey to God
just why we’re grateful.

Tis the season . . .
for inner thoughtfulness
a time to thank God
for His kindheartedness.

A time to see,
how much we’re blessed,
a time for our gratitude
to be openly professed.

Tis the season . . .
for thankful contemplation
a time to say Thank You God
whatever our situation!

New Songs of Joy ~

my-soul-sings-how-i-love-you_1024-500x500

New songs of joy,
to You, Lord I raise
songs of thanksgiving
worship and praise.

New songs of hope,
afresh and anew
songs of the love
I have Lord, for You.

New songs of faith,
dance in my head
whether I be up
or still in my bed.

New songs of trust,
to You, Lord I sing
gleefully I proclaim
You as my King.

New songs of joy,
Lord, to You I raise
for You are worthy
of my jubilant praise!

~~~~~~

Psalm 149. 1-5

” Praise ye the Lord.
Sing unto the Lord
a new song, and his
praise in the
congregation of saints.

Let Israel rejoice in him
that made him: let the
children of Zion be
joyful in their King.

Let them praise his name
in the dance: let them
sing praises unto him
with the timbrel and harp.

For the Lord taketh
pleasure in his people:
he will beautify
the meek with salvation.

Let the saints be joyful
in glory: let them
sing aloud upon their beds.”

What My Sheep Know ~

What My Sheep Know ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

His sheep hears His voice,
they follow Him eagerly
for they know their burdens
He’ll take from them happily.

They know they can trust,
their Shepherd to guide
and all of their daily needs
He will joyfully provide.

His sheep sing their praises,
they have nothing to fear
for they know their Shepherd
is always close and near.

They know they are safe,
from all danger and harm
they know they’re sheltered
in His gracious, loving arms.

His sheep stay close to Him,
they abide cheerfully
for they love their Shepherd
and stick by Him faithfully!

Forget the Turkey ~

For Get the Turkey ~ CHRIStian poetry by deborah ann

Forget about the turkey,
the dressing and the sides
forget about the pumpkin
pecan or chocolate pies.

Instead lift up your voice,
with shouts of joy and praise
to God your loving Father
let your thanksgiving raise.

Forget about the cleaning,
the flowers and table setting
forget about all the stuff . . .
over which you’re sweating.

Instead show the Lord,
your genuine gratitude
give your thanks to Jesus
for His gracious servitude.

Forget about the dinner,
and cooking that big bird . . .
instead let your song of praise
to God,  be forever heard!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 95:1-2

O come, let us sing unto the Lord:
 let us make a joyful noise to the
rock of our salvation.

 Let us come before his presence
with thanksgiving, and make a joyful
 noise unto him with psalms.

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
