Through All Of Life’s Challenges~

Through all of life’s challenges,
times of means and of lean
on my Lord and Savior . . .
I have continued to lean.

For He has not forsaken,
nor left me on my own
He has always given me
access to His holy throne.

Through all of life’s trials,
when I called out His name
to my defense and rescue
He always faithfully came.

In His mighty hand He kept,
me safe from the fiery tests
always having for me
His good and honest best.

Through life’s many troubles,
on my Lord and Savior I’ve clung
trusting Him for all things . . .
no matter what life at me flung!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

When Fear Chases You ~

When fear chases you,
before you get caught
there is a refuge . . .
for you God has got.

It’s a place of safety,
for you to run into
where dread and panic
cannot overtake you.

When your heart starts,
frantically racing
and your hands begin
violently shaking.

Run to the fortress,
of peace and trust
for it is where God
promises to meet us.

Before fear chases you,
into a dreadful fright
into God’s shelter . . .
run with all your might!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1-2

“He that dwelleth in the
secret place of the most
High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord,
He is my refuge and my
fortress: my God;
in him will I trust.”

Sticky Note From God ~03.30.19~


God’s Retreat of Peace ~

When you’re exhausted,
overwhelmed and weak
when all around you
appears cold and bleak.

That’s when you need,
God’s Refuge of tranquility
where from your troubles
you’ll find carefree, serenity.

When from the pressure,
you need to get out from under
when life seems to be
one blunder after another.

That’s when you need,
to take a breather
with God your Rock
and Fortress keeper.

When you are washed-out,
and in need of some rest . . .
in God’s retreat of peace
with calm, you’ll be blessed!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:5

“For in the time of trouble
he shall hide me in his pavilion:
in the secret of his tabernacle
shall he hide me; he shall
set me up upon a rock.”

When In Need Of Protection ~

When I need protection,
from the world outside
I go to the One . . .
who in my heart abides.

Jesus is my security,
He is my Strength and Shield
He’s the only One to whom
my life, I’m willing to yield.

When I am afraid,
when I need a hiding place
I go to the One . . .
who has sufficient grace.

Jesus is my Stronghold,
He is my Rock and Defender
He is the only One to whom
my fears I will surrender.

When I need a shielding,
when I need protecting
I go to my Savior . . .
for Refuge and sheltering!

~~~~~~~~

A Place to Hide ~

a-place-to-hide-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When I need a place,
to go and to hide
a place to escape
the upheaval outside.

I go to the refuge,
God has supplied
for in His Word I find
a safe place to abide.

When I need to get away,
from all the confusion
when I need to find
a place for seclusion.

I take refuge in Jesus,
knowing fully well
He’ll provide a haven
for my heart to dwell.

Whenever I need a place,
I can sneak off to
Lord, it’s no wonder I choose
to hide away with You!

~~~~~~

Psalm 142:5

“I cried unto thee, O Lord:
I said, Thou art my refuge
and my portion in the land
of the living.”

God Is Our Shelter ~

god-shelters-us-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God is our shelter,
in the storms of stress
He brings comfort
to us in our duress.

God is our retreat,
in the storms of sorrow
He gives us the joy
to face the morrow.

God is our fortress,
in the storms of fear
He brings peace
by drawing to us near.

God is our high tower,
in the storms of grief
He gives us strength
brings our hearts relief.

God is our shelter,
in all the storms of life
He brings the calm
in the midst of our strife!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:2

“I will say of the Lord,
He is my refuge and my
fortress: my God;
in him will I trust.”

Our Stronghold ~

Our Refuge ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah annIf God is our stronghold,
we will not faint
if He is our refuge
we’ll trust and wait.

If God is our rock,
we will be strong
if He is our fortress
we’ll sing a new song.

If God is our hedge,
we will be protected
if He is our salvation
we’ll never be rejected.

If God is our deliverer,
we will never fall back
if He is our shield
we’ll win every attack.

If God is our strength,
we will not be shaken
if He is our shelter . . .
we’ll not be forsaken!

~~~~~~

Psalm 18:2

“The Lord is my rock, and my fortress,
and my deliverer; my God, my strength,
in whom I will trust; my buckler,
and the horn of my salvation,
and my high tower.”

In God Alone ~

In God Alone ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In God and Him alone,
my soul waits ever patiently
for my hope only comes
when I rest in Him quietly.

He is my sturdy Rock,
from which I can’t be shaken
He protects and defends me
from the attacks of Satan.

A Refuge to me He is,
a place to run and hide
His love encompasses me
from each and every side.

It is in Him I trust,
in Him my faith is hedged
for He is my soul’s salvation
with His power I am dredged.

In God and Him alone,
my soul rests expectantly
nothing can move me from . . .
waiting on Him patiently!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 62:1-2

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

He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.

Jesus is My Everything ~

givemejesus CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus is my everything,
In Him, I am complete
Jesus is my all in all . . .
He is my soul’s retreat.

Whenever I am weary,
I find my perfect rest
when I turn to Jesus . . .
I know I’ll be blessed.

His peace, it comforts,
soothes like a  balm
it’s because of Jesus . . .
I’m surrounded by calm.

Oh, how I need  Jesus,
forever in my life . . .
without Him I’ve only pain
in a world full of strife.

Jesus is my everything,
in Him I’m made whole
Jesus is my all in all . . .
the true lover of my soul!

A Sound Defeat ~

The battle with the enemy
will be easy to beat . . .
if you put your trust in God
He will deliver a sound defeat.

But, first you must go to Him,
and give Him your fight
then He will lead you onward
in His power, with His might.

As your battle continues on,
He’ll be your strength and Rock
protecting your front and back
until the enemy starts to balk.

He will provide for you a refuge,
a fortress and a safe place
He will defend and deliver you
put a hedge around your base.

The battle with the enemy,
will be easier to beat . . .
if you let your Lord and Savior
lead you to a sound defeat!

~~~~~~~~

2 Samuel 22:2-3
King James Version

“And he said, The Lord is my rock,
and my
fortress, and my deliverer;
The God of my rock; in him will I trust:
he is my shield,
the horn
of my salvation, my high tower,
and my refuge, my saviour;
thou savest me from 
violence.”
