Autumn Blessings ~

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

Unlike the Autumn trees,
that shed their changing leaves
God sent the season for failing hearts
to adhere, embrace and cleave.

Just as with the Autumn winds,
there comes a refreshing rain
God sent the season for fraying hearts
to increase, grow and gain.

The Autumn sun is slow to climb,
and dips 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!

Each New Day ~

Each new day is a chance,
to renew your mind
each new dawn given you
there’s new hope to find.

Each new day is a chance,
your Bible to explore
each new dawn given you
God can heal and restore.

Each new day is a chance,
to grow in His grace
each new dawn given you
seek first to find God’s face.

Each new day is a chance,
to listen and to learn
every new dawn given you
give to God your concern.

Each new day is a chance,
to give God your strife
every new dawn given you
trust Jesus with your life!

God Will Always Mend ~

I have lived a life of losses,
with hardship as my friend . . .
but I’ve come to understand
how God will always mend.

For there is not a problem,
too great for Him to take
not a soul He can’t change
regenerate or remake.

There isn’t a broken heart,
Jesus cannot repair . . .
not a soul He won’t save
from the depth of despair.

For there is not a worry,
which for Him is too small
no trouble is too imposing
for He came to bear them all.

So no matter what your loss,
no matter where you’ve been
let God repair and mend . . .
the effects of pain and sin!

~~~~~~

Psalm 34:18

The Lord is nigh unto them
that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of
a contrite spirit.

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

The Potter Stands Ready ~

The Potter Stands Ready ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The Potter stands ready,
to patch and to restore
the broken heart of those
who can’t take anymore.

He sees the shattered soul,
all of the devastation
He knows it needs to find
in His hands, liberation.

He takes the ruined pieces,
places them upon His wheel
spins them with His mercy
so they may begin to heal.

He mends the brokenness,
with His  love and grace
then with hope and peace
He fills in the empty space.

The Potter stands ready,
to mend, heal and to restore
every single broken heart
who knocks on the Potter’s door!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 18:4

“And the vessel that he made of clay
was marred in the hand of the potter:
so he made it again another vessel,
as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

A New Dawn ~

Brand New Day by Gary Brower free photo #1088

Every day is a chance,
to renew your mind
every new dawn given
there’s new hope to find.

Every day is a chance,
for your Bible to explore
every new dawn given
let God heal and restore.

Every day is a chance,
to grow in His grace
every new dawn given
seek to find His face.

Every day is a chance,
to grow and to learn
every new dawn given
give God your concern.

Every day is a chance,
to get closer to the Lord
every new dawn given
to Jesus, look toward.

Every day is a chance,
to give God your strife
every new dawn given
let Jesus into your life!

I Need A Faith Lift ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

Lord, I need a faith lift,
perhaps a nip and tuck . . .
an implant of more grace
to get me out of this rut.

I need to liposuction,
the lack of trust out of me
so I can keep my confidence
believing in what I can’t see.

Perhaps some perseverance,
will cure the funk I’m in
an infusion of joy . . .
to bring back my gleeful grin.

I need to give to You,
my worries and my cares
so You can come and do
the restoring and repairs.

Lord, I need a faith lift,
for mine is getting shabby
I’ll need a nip and tuck
before it gets too flabby!

James 1:3

of your faith worketh patience.”

The Road Home ~

Road to By Jared Rarick free photo #6835

When we begin to wander,
go about our own way
the Lord takes notice
knowing we will stray.

As we drift off the path,
of truth and understanding
He knows we’ve departed
from the road everlasting.

He recognizes our error,
He sees that we are inapt
to seek and find for ourselves
the road that’ll take us back.

He won’t leave us for dead,
not one soul, He’d have perish
for every one that He loves
He does forever cherish.

But, He knows we are fragile,
we can’t make it all alone
so, He sends the Holy Spirit
to help and guide us home.

He waits at the door,
to restore the wandering soul
so we can stand before Him
in faith, complete and whole!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 21:16
King James Version (KJV)

“The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding
shall remain in the congregation of the dead.”

A New Day ~

unfailinglove used with permission IBible Verses

Restore my soul Lord,
each and every day
establish my paths
along the way.

Rebuild my life Lord,
every morning anew
determine my course
so as I may follow you.

Repair my heart Lord,
at dawns early light
prove its intent is true
pleasing in Your sight.

Renew my mind Lord,
upon the rise of the sun
strengthen my awareness
so Your will may be done.

Refresh my spirit Lord,
as the stars slowly fade
as this is a new day
for me ~ You have made!

God Will Mend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I have lived a life of losses,
with hardship as my friend
and I’ve come to understand
that God will always mend.

For there is not a problem,
too great for Him to take
it’s when we don’t go to Him
we make our first mistake.

There isn’t a broken heart,
which He cannot repair
not a soul He won’t save
if they come to Him in prayer.

No trouble is too imposing,
no worry is too small
for Jesus came to heal
and restore one and all.

So no matter what your loss,
no matter where you’ve been
let God repair and mend
the effects of pain and sin!

heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.”

God Still Moves . . .

hands free photo

He still moves mountains,
He will remove yours too
He can do the impossible
because . . .  He loves you.

He parts the sea,
He turns water into wine
He can restore your life
by making you, His vine.

He heals the sick,
He helps blind men to see
He can open up your eyes
just like He did . . . for me.

He makes the lame walk,
He can turn your life around
He can show you the way
guide you, to solid ground.

Yes, God can change you,
right where you are
He can make you complete
heal every ugly scar.

He still does miracles,
He will perform one today
for He is the Potter . . .
and you are His clay!

“But now, O Lord , thou art our father;
we are the clay, and thou our potter;
and we all are the work of thy hand.”

Thru The Window of My Soul ~

Thru the window of my soul,
God looks inside and sees
the wickedness of my heart
and it takes me to my knees.

I fall upon the ground,
weeping from my disgrace
from His searching eyes
I try to hide my face.

Though I have repented,
confessed to Jesus all my sin
I can’t help but feel the pain
I’ve caused Him deep within.

I lift myself back up,
my soul is still downcast
but I know He’s forgiven me
from the sins of my past.

Thru the window of my soul,
God sees my sins no more
for, He has cast them all out
so my heart He could restore!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 38:17

“Behold, for peace I had great bitterness:
but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it
from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast
all my sins behind thy back.”
