In His Strength ~

When troubles waters,
start to churn and swirl
before my faith . . .
can begin to spiral.

To my Lord,
I take my distress
and with His strength
I am blessed.

When my worries,
start to push and pull
before my faith . . .
becomes void and null.

To my Lord,
I take my praise
and in His strength
I am not fazed.

When troubled waters,
are all I can see . . .
I pray to my Lord
to strengthen me!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

“I can do all things
through Christ
which strengtheneth me.”

God Has A Time For Everything ~

God has a time,
for everything
and for every one
new season’s He brings.

There’s a time of peace,
and a time of bleakness
a time of spiritual health
and a time of sickness.

There’s a time to rise up,
and a time to regress
a time of fearfulness
and a time to onward press.

There’s a time of hope,
and a time of testing
a time of great faith
and a time of wrestling.

There’s a time to praise,
and a time to mourn
a time to rejoice
and a time to be reborn.

For every thing,
God has a reason
a time for all things
in their due season!

Ecclesiastes 3:1

“To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose
under the heaven:”

Rejoice Forever More ~

If we were to give,
thanks for everything
we would have joy
no matter what life brings.

If we were to pray,
without ever stopping
we’d have God peace
in our heart’s throbbing.

If we were to be,
always prayerful
we’d remain in Jesus
always faithful.

If we were to seek,
God’s will each day
we’d be on our knees
whenever we pray.

If we are thankful,
to God when we implore
then we will rejoice . . .
with Him forever more!

~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5.16-18

Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus
concerning you.

Life’s Demands ~

Lord, sometimes I get exhausted,
with all of life’s demands
sometimes I get so tired
following everyone’s commands.

For, I would much rather,
just spend time alone with You
with my Bible and commentary
the only two things in view.

Lord, sometimes I get fatigued,
just thinking of all I’ve to do
sometimes I am overwhelmed
meeting time lines, coming due.

For, I would so much rather,
just sit and listen to . . .
praise and worship songs
about my love for You.

Lord, sometimes I get weary,
thinking about the day ahead
for, I would so much rather  . . .
just stay praying to You in bed!

One Day ~

One day the heavens,
will begin to sing . . .
their praises to God
along with every living thing.

One day every nation,
and all the people of
will worship their Creator
for His mercy, grace and  love.

One day all the sheep,
will sing jubilantly their praise
to God their Father
for the Son He did raise.

One day the meek and needy,
will stand with the poor
and sing their praises
to God on heaven’s shore.

One day everything,
moving or breathing . . .
to Jesus their Lord and  Savior
will forever their praises sing!

“And every creature
which is in heaven,
and on the earth,
and under the earth,
and such as are in the sea,
and all that are in them,
heard I saying, Blessing,
and honour, and glory,
and power, be unto him
that sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb
for ever and ever.”

I talk to God,
whenever I cry
I talk to Him
when my spirits are high.

Singing In The Rain ~

In The Shadow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today, there is a storm
but, I’m still going to sing
no matter how much rain
on my life it may bring.

I will leap and I will jump,
through and in the puddles
for under my Father’s wings
I will be securely huddled.

If lightning were to strike,
my Father will protect me
if the thunder came to roar
in His wings shadow I will be.

No matter how hard it pours,
or how sizeable the drops
in the shadow of the Almighty
I will stay until it stops.

Today, on me it’s raining,
but, I’m still going to sing
because I know I am safe
under my Father’s mighty wings!

“Because thou hast been my help,
therefore in the shadow of thy

On the Sea of Bended Knee ~

A Sea of Bended Knees ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Father, I can hardly wait,
until I see the sea
of every single knee
bowing down to Thee.

The vision is so clear,
as each soul accounts
if, to You they were . . .
rebellious or devout.

Father, I can hear it now,
the hum of every tongue
singing You’re the only God
there is no other one.

The sound is so sobering,
as each soul proclaims
what they did or didn’t do
to bring glory to Your name.

Father, I can hardly wait,
for the day when I will see
every soul praising You . . .
on the sea of bended knee!

~~~~~~~

Romans 14:11-12

“For it is written, As I live,
saith the Lord,
every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall confess to God.

“So then every one of us shall
give account of himself to God.”

Seeking God’s Favor ~

Seeking God's Favor ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Those who seek God’s favor,
before they start their day
find protection for their soul
as the go about their way.

Our early cries to God,
our morning meditation
are for our troubled soul
the best kind of medication.

Those who seek God’s mercy,
with a heart full of praise
find peace and tranquility
along life’s winding maze.

Our pleas for daily strength,
our prayers for our enemy
are our souls best defense
with an everlasting remedy.

Our requests to God,
our petitions for endurance
are for our thankful souls
a shield of assurance.

Those who seek God’s favor
in the early morning light
are the ones who are filled
with His power and His might!

in the morning will I direct
my prayer unto thee,
and will look up.”

Those who seek God’s favor,
rejoice in the morning . . .

He considers their groaning.

They cry out to the living God,
for answers to their prayers
they trust He will respond
to their worries and their cares.

They know He will protect them,
from the burdens life brings
tis why at the break of dawn . . .
their praise to Him, they sing.

They trust Him along the way,
to shelter them in any storm
to the world they’re resolved
not to follow or to conform.

each morning look up . . .
and sip the mercy flowing
right from their King’s cup!

Hallelujah Journey ~

No Matter How Low ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m transforming this valley,
by changing my attitude
I’m going to go through it
with praise and gratitude.

I’m not letting this challenge,
get the better part of me
I’m going to trust it’s where
for now, God wants me to be.

I’m transforming this valley,
by altering my thinking
I’m coming out of it strong
not lifeless and limping.

I’m not letting this trial,
take control of my life
I’m going to conquer it
no matter what the strife.

I’m transforming this valley,
it’ll be my hallelujah journey
for I know in all things . . .
my God, is truly praiseworthy!

Chosen By God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Chosen by God,
hand-picked for the Vine
once broken vessels
now flow with New Wine.

Royalty are we now,
heirs of God’s loving grace
receivers of His mercy
our own cross we embrace.

Messengers of peace,
deliverers of Good News
now that we have found
our hope and refuge.

With praise for our Savior,
to the world we seem odd
as we worship and thank
the One and Only True God.

Out of the dark we came,
into God’s wondrous light
no longer powerless . . .
now filled with His Holy might!
