Heavenly Minded ~

When you are,
heavenly minded
in this world
you won’t be blinded.

For when you know,
your real citizenship
into satan traps
you will not fall or slip.

When you live,
a life worthy of
the grace of Jesus
and His love.

You will be,
a light that reflects
His life and power
and its effects.

When you are,
heavenly focused
how you act
will be noticed!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 1:27

“Only let your conversation
be as it becometh the gospel
of Christ: that whether I come
and see you, or else be absent,
I may hear of your affairs,
that ye stand fast in one
spirit, with one mind striving
together for the faith of the gospel;

Philippians 3:20

“For our conversation is in heaven;
from whence also we look for the
Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:”

A Perfect Getaway ~

A Perfect Get Away ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In times of trouble,
we need a hideaway
a place we can go . . .
just to get away.

We need a retreat,
a place to de-stress
we need a refuge
so we can decompress.

In times of troubles,
we need a resort
a place where we can find
some Godly support.

We need a haven,
a shelter of protection
we need a sanctuary
a place for reflection.

In times of trouble,
we need a getaway
and God provides . . .
the perfect hideaway!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:1

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

Finding Peace ~

Finding Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today I took a sail,
on a quiet, restful sea
and soon tranquility
took a hold of me.

As I gently rocked,
I became aware
this is how it will be
when I haven’t me a care.

I laid back my head,
my face was to the sun
thinking what it’ll be like
when worry, I have none.

I closed my eyes tightly,
envisioning perfect bliss
and thought to myself
this world I’ll not miss.

Today I took a sail,
if only in my mind . . .
but God showed me His peace
is right here ~ for me to find!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

One More Step ~

One Step At a Time ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

One day at a time Lord,
one new dawn, if You will
one more step of faith . . .
in waiting to be still.

One hour at a time,
one minute to get by
one more step of hope . . .
yet, for me to try.

One second at a time,
one little slip of time
one more step of trust . . .
I still have to climb.

One foot forward,
one more to follow
one more step to rest . . .
under Your wings shadow.

One day at a time Lord,
one new dawn to bring
one more step of faith . . .
to trust You in all things!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 57:1

“Be merciful unto me, O God,
be merciful unto me:
 for my soul trusteth in thee:
yea, in the shadow of thy wings
will I make my refuge, until
 these calamities be overpast.”

I Lift My Eyes to Heaven ~

my-help-come-from-the-lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

I lift my eyes to heaven,
for there, I know I’ll find
rest and support . . .
for my heart and mind.

I look past my worries,
to find my stronghold
my Lord is waiting there
to fortify and uphold.

I raise my eyes to God,
He offers a hiding place
a refuge where I’m covered
in His almighty grace.

My help comes from above,
where God is ever-present
He comes to my rescue
when to my sins, I repent.

I lift my eyes to heaven,
for there, I know I will  find
peace and true contentment
to fill my heart and mind!

Psalm 121:1-2

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,

which made heaven and earth.”

My Confidence ~ My Hope

hope-is-in-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My confidence is in the Lord,
for I know He cares for me
I place my hope in Him
not in the things, I can see.

He protects and shelters me,
in His goodness with His grace
with Him any problem
I’m able to confidently face.

I know I can count on Him,
for wisdom and for some rest
for He knows what I need
has for me only the best.

I am so very happy,
for in the Lord I have peace
His compassion never fails me
my hope in Him shall not cease!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 146:5
King James Version

“Happy is he that hath
the God of Jacob for his help,

whose hope is in the Lord his God:”

My Hiding Place ~

My Hiding Place ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, You are my hiding place,
my harbor in any storm . . .
You are the only one I know
who keeps me from all harm.

You are my safe haven,
my retreat when I am weary
You are the only one I know
who my burdens will carry.

 You are my soul’s refuge,
my sanctuary when I need a break
You are the only one I know
who understands every ache.

 You are my hideaway,
my shelter when I need peace
You are the only one I know
who’s love for me will never cease.

Lord, You are my hiding place,
my port into which I sail . . .
You are the only one I know
whom will never disappoint or fail!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 32:7
King James Version

“Thou art my hiding place;
thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
thou shalt compass me about
 with songs of deliverance. Selah.”

My Rock ~

My Rock ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My Rock never leaves me,
forsake me He does not
my Rock is strong and sturdy
each time He is sought.

My Rock forever comforts,
protects and provides
my Rock is always present
from me He never hides.

My Rock is my strength,
the power of my might
my Rock is my safe haven
my refuge and my light.

My Rock has a name,
to which I call upon
my Rock is the Lord Jesus
and it’s to Him, I cling on!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:2
King James Version

“The LORD is my rock and my fortress
and my deliverer; My God, my strength,
in whom I will trust; My shield
and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

In The Secret Place ~

In The Secret Place ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I shall dwell in the secret place,
where the Most High abides
I’ll make the Almighty my refuge
under His shadow, I will reside.

There He will protect me,
and keep me from all harm
there He will preserve me
and keep me safe and warm.

There He will guard me,
and for my faith, He will bless
there He will look out for me
and give me a place to rest.

There I will pray with Him,
to supply my every need
there I will sup with Him
and on His Word I will feed.

There I will praise Him,
and give Him the glory due
there I will worship Him
and sing my hallelujah’s too.

I shall dwell with You my God,
in that secret place
for it’s where I am surrounded
with Your love and grace!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91: 1-2
King James Version

“He who dwells 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 I will trust.”
