A Long As We Exist ~

Lord, show us Your paths,
as long as we exist . . .
to Your righteous ways
may we never resist.

Teach us to be still,
until the timing is right
give us the strength
in the battles we fight.

Let us not be impatient,
til in the future we meet
guide each and every step
of our oft stumbling feet.

Keep us from becoming,
ever fearful and afraid
let us not limit You
so we’ll not be dismayed.

Lord, show us Your Ways,
reveal to us Your plans . . .
so we may come to rest
in Your almighty hands!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:7a

Rest in the Lord,

Fear thou not;

for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand
of my righteousness.

A Love Letter From God ~

Today I received,
from God a love letter
I opened up my Bible
here is what I read . . .

I am your Creator,
I formed and molded you
before you were born . . .
I knitted you together too.

I’m the remedy to your needs,
I am your soothing balm
I’m the peace in your storm
I am that voice in the calm.

I’m all the grace you need,
in Me there’s eternal life
I came so that I could bear
the burden of your strife.

I am your staff of comfort,
I will shield and protect you
through life’s complexities
together we’ll get through.

I am the anchor of your soul,
a safe place to run and hide
for I will never forsake you . . .
I’ll always be at your side.

I’m the lamp unto your way,
with my Word I will guide
I am the One who you feel
stirring up deep inside.

I am your Creator,
I knew you from the start
that is why I gave to you . . .
for Me a loving heart!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:16

And we have known and

The Missing Piece ~

He repairs hearts,
fills in the holes
heals the spirit
restores the soul.

His love reaches,
the deep recesses
where pain hides
and sin depresses.

He gives wholeness,
to the fraught mind
surpassing anything
we could ever find.

To those in need,
grace He freely gives
for only He knows . . .
how to truly forgive.

He fills in the hole,
He’s the missing piece
only Jesus can bring
true rest and peace!

He healeth the broken in heart,

Keep Us Close Lord ~

Lord, keep us close to You,
each and every day . . .
may it be the first thing
we ask as we pray.

Remind us of Your hope,
how it will not pass away
build up our confidence
to help us not to stray.

Fill us with Your peace,
quiet our troubles inside
take away the barriers
so with You we may abide.

Whisper in our ears,
how much for us You care
tell us a over and over
You will always be there.

Lord, keep our hearts,
each and every day . . .
so on the right path
by Your side we’ll stay!

On My ROCKing Chair ~

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting peacefully
rocking to and fro
oh, so ever calmly.

Though, I have worries,
I haven’t me a care
for while I am rocking
God listens to my prayer.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting comfortably
rocking back and forth
oh, so ever enjoyably.

Though, I have troubles,
I’m rocking all the same
for I’m so confident
as I call upon His name.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting quietly
rocking up and down
oh, so ever serenely.

Though, I have problems,
I’m gonna keep rocking
for God’s got me an answer
and soon He’ll be talking.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m trusting and believing
for I know His response . . .
soon I’ll be receiving!

All things are possible,
when in God you trust
all things are feasible
when you see He is just.

All things have meaning,

All things are a blessing,
when God you obey
all things come together
when to Him you pray.

All things are achievable,
when in God you rely
all things are workable
when faith you apply.

All things are attainable,
when God is your hope
all things are brighter
when He helps you to cope.

All things work together,
when your life to Jesus you give
all things are beautiful . . .
when He’s the reason you live!

Be Still Until ~

When waiting on the Lord,
to answer your prayer . . .
don’t become discouraged
instead rest in His care.

When seeking His response,
for your wants and needs
don’t become depressed
be at peace til He leads.

When God is quiet,
but you heart isn’t so
don’t become worried
instead let His mercy flow.

When looking for a word,
to help show the way
don’t become disheartened
but, let joy fill your day.

When waiting on the Lord,
be still until . . . .
He shows to you
what is His perfect will!

A Time To Let God ~

A time for patience,
and for some rest
a time to let God do . . .
what He knows is best.

A time for His Spirit,
to lead from above
a time to linger . . .
and abide in His love.

A time for endurance,
to run the good race
a time to stop running
and abound in His grace.

A time for calmness,
when composure is gone
a time to discover
how to be closer drawn.

A time to be quiet,
to sit and be still
a time to actively seek
what is God’s perfect will.

A time for silence,
of both mind and heart
a time for God only . . .
nothing keeping us apart.

A time to lie down,
in pastures green
a time to be protected
under His almighty wing.

A time to know and believe,
He’ll never leave or forsake
a time for God . . .
we all need to make!

Be Still My Heart ~

Be Still ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be still, my soul, be at peace,
let not thy worries overcome
be still, and know He is your God
and will  your heart-strings strum.

Be still, my heart and let go,
let surrender be thy sweet release
be still, and know God’s saving power
to eternity, can never fail or cease.

Be still, my mind and surrender all,
let thy weakness take you to your knees
be still, and know of God’s sufficiency
will and can surpass all thy needs.

Be still, my spirit admit thy defeat,
let thyself dwell on things from above
be still, and know He is in control
and be strengthened by and in His love.

Be still, my soul be at peace,
let Him complete in thee His perfect will
be still, and know He is your God
and will our heart-strings still!

If The Lord’s Our Shepherd ~

If the Lord is our Shepherd,
why then do we still want?
If He supplies all our needs,
why do our lacks still taunt?

If besides still waters He leads,
why then do we still fear?
If He fills us with quietness,
why don’t we hold Him near?

If green pastures bring peace,
why then are we still stressed?
If He leaves us not lacking,
why don’t we feel blessed?

If He restores our souls,
why then do we still doubt?
If He satisfies our deep thirst,
why is their still a drought?

If in righteousness He guides,
why then do we still wander?
If the Lord is truly our Shepherd,
we needn’t these things ponder!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down
in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside
the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

He’ll quiet me again today.

I’m stepping out in faith today,

He’ll be trustworthy again today.

I’m stepping out in faith today
I’m asking Him to heed my prayer
I found Him listening yesterday
He’ll hear my pleas again today.

I’m stepping out in faith today,
I’m trusting Him for what I can’t see
I found His guidance yesterday . . .

Sometimes troubles come,
changing all our plans . . .
making it ever clearer
all things are in God’s hands.

Hands that long to hold,
to comfort and to console
hands that want to heal
the ache within the soul.

Hands that desire to reach,
far into the heart and mind
hands that hold perfect peace
for fearful ones to find.

Hands that crave to embrace,
grieving hearts in the night
hands that yearn to lead
all to His saving light.

Hands that are capable,
hands confident and sure
hands that calm the storms
hands that holds life’s cure.

Sometimes troubles come,
and we must change our plans
so that we may come to rest . . .
in His almighty hands!

It’s All About God’s Grace ~

It’s all about God’s grace,
not about what you do
it’s all about Jesus . . .
and what He did for you.

For grace is forgiving,
it frees you from your sin
it’s not something earned
or anything you can win.

It’s all about God’s grace,
His mercy and favor . . .
it’s all about having faith
in Christ, Jesus your Savior.

For grace is liberating,
there is no cost to you
Jesus paid the full price
there’s nothing left to do.

It’s all about God’s grace,
the confession of sin
it’s all about repentance
to be cleansed from within.

For grace will set you free,
from under satan’s claws
all you need is faith . . . .
for grace erased the laws.

It’s all about grace,
liberating and freeing
it is a gift from God . . .
well worth your receiving!

I Love October ~

I love October . . .
with all its golden leaves
I love watching them flutter
to the ground upon a breeze.

Once brilliantly green,
dangling happily to a tree
now falling like snowflakes
to form a golden sea.

Fresh and crisp underfoot,
my feet love to walk . . .
on top of October’s path
so I can hear the leaves talk.

As summer drifts to sleep,
fall changes its golden color
and the full beauty of Autumn
unfolds all of its fiery wonder.

I love October . . .
with all its glorious leaves
I love how they remind me
to Jesus, I must always cleave!

Sticky Note From God ~10.01.21~

Matthew 11:28-30


Autumn Blessings ~

Autumn brings the soul relief,
as hot Summer days slip to an end
God sent the season to weary hearts
so He can restore, repair and mend.

Just as with the Autumn winds,
there comes a new refreshing rain
God sent the season for fraying hearts
so they can mature, grow and gain.

Unlike the Autumn trees,
that shed their changing leaves
God sent the season for wary hearts
so to Him they’d adhere and cleave.

The Autumn sun is slow to climb,
dipping much earlier into the night
God sent the season for sleepy hearts
to rise, shine and awake in His light.

God gave to us the Autumn season,
so we could have a respite and rest . . .
for it is the season for our beset souls
to see how much we are truly blessed!

Let not your spirit fail you,

to restore so He can heal.

and your anxiety will fade away!

For our light affliction,

which are not seen: for the things
which are seen are temporal;

Just Pick Up Your Bible ~

When you’re feeling down,
and you need a lift
just pick up your Bible
and give yourself a gift.

For inside you’ll find,

for you to find and claim
when His Word you explore.

When you’re feeling anxious,
remember this one thing
since God is on our side
what good will worry bring.

For He is our God of peace,
who showers us from above
the gentleness of His mercy
in the tenderness of His love.

When you’re feeling discouraged,
and deep waters begin to flow
cast your cares upon Him
then watch His blessings grow.

For He is your Rock and Anchor,
He will never let you down
He will turn those deep rivers
into dry and solid ground.

All the assurance you need,
is written in the Good Book
but you’ll have to pick it up
and take for yourself a look!

A Work In Progress ~

I am a work in progress,
you probably are one too
each day Jesus is working
in us something new.

His grace is forming us to be,
His warriors and His saints
He’s shaping us to live a life
with principles and restraints.

He is molding our hearts,
to be sober and clean
so the likeness of Him
in our souls we can glean.

He knows all the lumps,
that need to be reformed
He is shaping us each day
till in Him we’re transformed.

We have unlimited potential,
He’ll never be finished with us
and you and I must believe
His remolding is always just.

I am a work in progress,
you too might be one . . .
every day God is shaping us
into the image of His Son!

Philippians 1.6

“Being confident of this very thing, that he
which hath begun a good work in you will
perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

Waters Healing~

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of life
makes us beg for relief.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove its own heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

We thirst for waters healing,
a peaceful resting place
where we can forget the pain
that’s so unbearable to face.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
only God can relieve . . .
the throbbing in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the anguished soul true relief!

Philippians 4:7

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