Tranquil Trust ~

Peaceful rest,
tranquil trust
is what Jesus
gives to us.

Putting our cares,
into His heart
so hope in ours
He can impart.

Blissful serenity,
calm’s quietness
is what Jesus
provides for us.

Giving our fears,
over to Him
so joy can fill
us to the brim.

Peaceful hearts,
tranquil minds
is what Jesus
wants us to find!

Peace Perfectly ~

peace-perfectly-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If we’re to have peace,
in our daily life
we need to stay fixed
on God, not our strife.

For, hearts that are stayed,
on God’s tranquility
are the hearts trusting Him
in all totality.

If we’re to have,
peace perfectly
than our minds must seek
Him thirstily.

For minds that are focused,
on God’s serenity
are the minds that believe
in Him entirely.

If we want to have peace,
our eyes need to be
steady on God . . .
not on the things we see!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 26:3

“Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.

A Time for God ~

A Time for God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

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

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

A time for serenity,
in the midst of the buzz
a time to find harmony
as God always does.

A time to listen,
and to be still
a time to wait
for His perfect will.

A time for calmness,
when composure is gone
a time for quietness
and to God, be drawn.

A time to trust,
without any fear
a time for the Lord
to bring us near.

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

A time for silence,
and an open 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 wing.

A time to know,
He won’t leave or forsake
a time for God . . .
we all need to make!

Who Can Comprehend?

Who Can Comprehend ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Who can comprehend,
this love that is world-wide
who can grasp onto
this call to be His bride?

Who can comprehend,
a love that is without end
who can figure out
the true passion of a Friend?

Who can comprehend,
love going into eternity
who can stretch their hearts
into this place of serenity.

Who can comprehend,
love reaching deep within
who can see the real need
for forgiveness of their sin.

Who can comprehend,
the love God has for us
who can fully understand it . . .
those who completely trust!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:18-19
King James Version

“May be able to comprehend with all saints
what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge, that ye might be
filled with all the fulness of God.

Perfect Peace ~

keep-in-peaceCHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to know the peace of God,
to experience its perfect calm
to use His every Word
as our soothing, healing balm.

Then we’d have tranquility,
through the storms of life
we’d soar above the turbulence
riding out the winds of strife.

Oh, to have the serenity of God,
flowing from our weary hearts
to have minds engulfed in stillness
which only His Spirit can impart.

Then we’d have the faith,
to trust God in all things
and the discipline to know
the perfect peace He brings!

This Peace ~

Peace that Surpasses used with permission IBible Verses on Facebook

There is  this peace,
washing over me
I can’t explain . .
what I can’t see.

I cannot grasp,
nor comprehend
but I can sense
it’s without end.

I feel a calmness,
a deep tranquility
I’m being bathed
with eternal serenity.

I know its coming,
from God up above
for, He’s drenching me
in His perfect love.

There is this peace,
I can’t explain it . . .
but, I know its flowing
from the Holy Spirit!

Philippians 4:7
King James Version

Our Joy ~

do-not-fear used with permission IBible Verses

This CHRISTmas . . .
I wish you a merry day
with family and close friends
whether near or far away.

I wish you true happiness,
a day filled with sheer delight
a time to snuggle closely
by the warming fire light.

I wish you contentment,
a heart full of gladness
a soul filled with glee
and of cheerfulness.

I wish you true peace,
a home filled with tranquility
surrounded in the perfect love
of God’s amazing serenity.

But mostly I wish you joy,
lasting all the year through
so the light of your salvation
will reflect inside of you!

Calm Waters ~

Calm Waters ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Calm waters across the bay,
small ripples the shade of blue
quiet moments on the shore
in the stillness there is You.

As far as my eyes can see,
God’s peace is all around
I look and can see His beauty
from the sky to the ground.

My ears can barely hear,
whispers behind the breeze
Lord, these tranquil moments
remind me of Your ease.

I stand on the sandy beach,
Your peacefulness I take in
I sense the loving calmness
of Your Spirit deep within.

I watch in silent wonder,
reveling in the quietness
I listen to the silence . . .
absorbing Your awesomeness!

Whenever I’m Afraid ~

Whenever I am afraid
and fear comes my way
I stop what I am doing
and to my Lord, I pray.

I won’t allow my fears,
to take away my calm
for in Jesus I do trust
to be my soothing balm.

In God’s loving-kindness,
He sent me His peace
and Jesus died for me
to see it wouldn’t cease.

I won’t allow my fears,
to influence my serenity
for it is in my Lord
I find my true identity.

Whenever I am afraid,
and fear comes my way
I put my trust in my Lord
to take my dread away!

I will trust in thee”
