My Morning Song ~

Early in the morning,
before the sun is ablaze
I give a shout of joy
with a song of heartfelt praise.

I make a sweet melody,
to show God my gratitude
as I sing out my praises
with a joyful attitude.

Early in the morning,
before the sun begins to rise
I thank God for His kindness
under the darken skies.

I clap my hands together,
lift my arms up in praise
as I give my day to the Lord
I thank Him for His ways.

While the dew is still set,
on the morning lawn
while the house is dark
before there is a new dawn.

I show my thankfulness,
to the Lord up above
and lift up my heart-song
to honor His steadfast love.

When my day is over,
as the sun dims its blazing light
I thank God for His faithfulness
all though the starry night!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 92:1-2

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
and to sing praises to Your name, O Most
 High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the
morning, and Your faithfulness every night.”

Sticky Note to God ~12.11.18 ~


Bold Praise ~

I can’t carry a tune,
don’t have a great voice
but for my Savior
I still sing and rejoice.

I don’t know the melody,
haven’t got me the ear
but it doesn’t stop God
my praises to hear.

I can’t read the music,
don’t recognize the chords
but I still carry on
worshiping my Lord.

I don’t have the rhythm,
can’t understand the beat
but I keep on rejoicing
at my Savior’s feet.

I can’t carry a tune,
a note I can’t hold
but, my praise to God
is still always bold!

Sing unto him,

Grow Your Gratitude ~

Grow your gratitude,
it will increase your praise
then what comes your way
you will not be phased.

For God wants us to be,
for all things grateful
and then our praise to Him
will become a daily staple.

Grow your thankfulness,
it won’t disappoint you
then whatever God sends
you’ll be able to get through.

For God desires of us,
our earnest of devotions
not just the kind we give
when going through the motions.

Grow your thanksgiving,
gratefulness you will raise
so no matter what life brings
you’ll still offer God your praise!

Good Night Lord ~

Good night Lord,
it’s been a pleasant day
walking along with You
on the narrow way.

Thank You for being with me,
for holding my hand
for lifting me up
when I thought I couldn’t stand.

Good night Lord,
this day was beautiful
the grace You gave me
was more than bountiful.

Thank You for blessing me,
with each daily provision
for keeping me always
right within Your vision.

Good night lord,
let’s do this again tomorrow
if from You another day . . .
will allow me to borrow!

~~~~~~~

Eternally Secured ~

You may try,
but, I can’t be moved
for my soul to Jesus
is irreversibly glued.

You may attempt,
but, I can’t be pried
for my heart to Jesus
is indefinitely tied.

You may endeavor,
but, I won’t be persuaded
for my life to Jesus
is securely barricaded.

You may aspire,
but, I cannot be lured
for my mind to Jesus
is eternally secured.

You may try,
every trick in the book
but my soul to Jesus . . .
is permanently hooked!

~~~~~~~

“Truly my soul waiteth upon God:
from him cometh my salvation.

he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.”

Walk By Faith ~

Walking by faith,
and not on feeling
will have us on . . .
our knees kneeling.

For when we see,
joy is a choice
whatever our care
we will rejoice.

Walking by faith,
and not on emotion
sets the Holy Spirit’s
power into motion.

For when we discover,
no matter our worry
His strength will give us
a thankful journey.

Walking by faith,
to know God’s will
cannot our praises
stop or still!

Pit Dwelling ~

When in the pits,
don’t stay there
get right out
so not to despair.

For pit dwelling,
will cause bitterness
and God’s blessings
you’ll surely miss.

When in the dumps,
don’t stay down
pull yourself out
lest in pity you drown.

For dump diving,
is a pit’s best friend
and is no place God
wants you to spend.

When in the pits
or down in the dumps
let your praise to God
give your faith a jump!

~~~~~~

Psalm 40:2

“He brought me up also out
of an horrible pit, out
of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock,
and established my goings.”

The Light of My Life ~

Today I am singing,
though outside it is gray
I can still see the Light . . .
though the sun’s tucked away.

For the Light that shines in me,
makes my heart radiate
though there maybe clouds
my joy they can’t alienate.

Jesus is that Light,
the song of my salvation
and I don’t need the sun
to sing out my elation.

For the Light of Jesus,
lights up both night and day
nothing stops it from shinning
on the Truth, Life and Way.

Today I am singing,
though outside it is dreary
the Light of my life. . .
is all I need to be cheery!

~~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk
in darkness, but shall have the
light of life.”

Thankful In Any Circumstance ~

Whatever comes my way,
I take this stance . . .
to be thankful
in every circumstance.

Whenever I am happy,
my praise to God I sing
and I thank Him for . . .
the joy that He brings.

Whenever I have troubles,
I seek Him and I pray
and I thank Him for . . .
the peace on my way.

Whenever I’m hurting,
I trust my pain He’ll relieve
and I thank Him for . . .
the strength to believe.

Whenever I’m doubtful,
I give to Him my fear
and I thank Him for . . .
being close and near.

Regardless of how I feel,
I praise Him in advance
and I thank the Lord . . .
no matter my circumstance!

Our Daily Mission ~

When with God we’re repentant,
and fall under His submission
praise and thanksgiving . . .
will become our daily mission.

For, those who trust God,
know all will be Okay
no matter what may come
or what He sends our way.

When with God we’re humble,
and self-denial is the rule
our thanksgiving for all things
will be our spiritual fuel.

For, those who are hopeful,
know God won’t send anything
that would ever keep them
from Him worshiping.

When with God our attitudes,
are positive and confident
our praise and thanks to Him
will be in our lives, dominate!

Singing In The Dark ~

It’s easy to sing,
when the day is trouble free
it’s easier to give accolades
to God, when full of glee.

It’s easy to sing,
when all is looking bright
it’s easier to praise God
when bathed in His light.

It’s easy to sing,
when all is going well
it’s easier to let our gratitude
for God, to grow and swell.

It’s easy to sing,
when  happy and content
it’s easier for us to God
our thanksgiving present.

But, they who still sing,
in the darkness of the night
are those who praise God . . .
no matter what’s in their sight!

Spring’s Sunshine~

Lord, as the buds,
begin to re-form
in Spring’s sunshine
bright and warm.

May I too,
open up to You
to be restored
and made anew.

Lord, as the birds,
take up their song
as in the breeze
they glide along.

May I too,
sing out to You
my song of praise
for all You do.

Lord, as Spring,
blooms and sings . . .
may I too emerge
on faithful wings!

~~~~~~~~

Song of Solomon 2:11-12

“For, lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;

The flowers appear on the earth;

is come, and the voice of the turtle
is heard in our land;”

In A Slump ~

In a slump,
spiritually speaking
faith needing
a little tweaking?

Well don’t stop,
praying when dry
go ahead with God
and have a good cry.

In the dumps,
thought’s troubling
worries becoming
a little unnerving?

Well don’t stop,
raising your praise
God understands
it’s just a phase.

In a funk,
losing the battle
cares have you
a little bit rattled?

Well don’t you stop,
in God trusting . . .
until living water
again come rushing!

In The Name of Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I thank God,
for being there
for listening to
my every care.

I thank Him,
for staying true
for lifting me up
when I am blue.

I thank God,
for never leaving
for keeping me
on Him cleaving.

I thank Him,
for mercy anew
for helping me
a day get through.

In Jesus’ name,
I thank God
and give to Him
my heartfelt laud!

As The New Year Unfolds ~

As the old year departs,
and the new one arrives
let us all show our thanks
to the One who provides.

Let us all worship,
His almighty name
so to His goodness
our lips will proclaim.

As the calendar peals,
one page after another
let us all give praise
to our heavenly Father.

Let us all sing,
over each new season
lest we forget
the blessing of freedom.

As the new year unfolds,
and the old one leaves us . . .
with everything we’ve got
let’s not forget the One we trust!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 103:1-2

“Bless the Lord, O my soul:
and all that is within me,
