You Have Blessed Me ~

You Have Blessed Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

To My Friend  . . .

You have blessed me,
with words of encouragement
you have provided me
with spiritual nourishment.

You have helped me,
through my pain and grief
you have brought me
refreshment and relief.

You have given me,
hope in a dark place
you have revealed to me
the truth about real grace.

You have comforted me,
when all was too much to bear
you have reassured me
just how much for me you care.

You have been there for me,
my side you didn’t leave
you have consoled me . . .
my sorrow, you did relieve.

So thank you my friend
for blessing me . . .
with your very presence
though you, I cannot see!

~ Thank You Jesus ~

Jesus Will Heal ~

Jesus Will Heal ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~

I know the pain,
that you feel
you don’t think
it will ever heal.

The void in your heart,
just won’t go away
no matter how hard
or often you pray.

I know the grief,
eating you up inside
you don’t think
it will ever subside.

Your heart hurts so,
the ache is deep
every time you laugh
you begin to weep.

I too have felt,
the pain you feel
but trust me ~ Jesus
in time will heal!

shall reap in joy.”

What If ~

~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

What if there was no pain,
no grief, no more misery
no tears left to collect
no more human agony?

What if there was no hunger,
no thirst, nor starvation
no want or need left unmet
no dying from prostration?

What if there was no murder,
no killing, nor slaughter
no more innocent victim
no soul so cold and bitter?

What if there was no hatred,
no disgust, nor loathing
no heart so full of evil
no more darkness looming?

What if there was no pain,
no sorrow, no grief, no tear
what if Jesus never promised
to come again and live here?

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.”

Let Me Not Lose Hope ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Don't Lose Sight - IBible Verse

Lord, let me not lose You,
in the midst of my grief
let me not lose hope . . .
in the fog of disbelief.

Let me not lose peace,
in the haze of my pain
let me not lose hope . . .
against sorrow’s strain.

Let me not lose joy,
in the mist of my loss
let me not lose hope . . .
as this bridge, I cross.

Let me not lose faith,
in the turmoil of my soul
let me not lose hope . . .
as sadness, takes its toll.

Lord, let me not lose You,
let me not lose sight
of the hope I have in . . .
Your restoring light!

How Much Longer Lord ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~They who mourn - IBible Verses

How much longer Lord,
will I be in this wilderness . . .
how much longer, oh my God
will my heart feel this tenderness?

How many more tears Lord,
are there left for me to cry
how many more drops will fall
until they finally dry?

How many more sleepless nights,
will I still go through
how much more restlessness
will inhabit my days too?

How  much more  grief,
can this heart of mine take
how much more of this pain
till I finally get a break?

How much longer Lord,
will I be in this wilderness . . .
when will You relieve me
with Your loving tenderness?

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

Psalm 6:2-4

“Have mercy upon me, O Lord;
for I am weak: O Lord, heal me;
for my bones are vexed.

My soul is also sore vexed:
but thou, O Lord, how long?

Return, O Lord, deliver my soul:
oh save me for thy mercies’ sake.”

Help Is Here ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ God Substains Me - IBible Verses

Help comes to the lonely,
whenever we need comforting
Help comes to relieve the pain
whenever we are suffering.

Help comes with peace,
whenever there is wariness
Help comes with rest
whenever there is weariness.

Help comes to bring courage,
whenever we are fearful
Help comes to console the soul
whenever we are tearful.

Help comes with guidance,
whenever we need direction
Help comes with its shield
whenever we need protection.

Help is always with us,
to aid, alleviate and restrain
our help is in the Lord . . .
it is in Him, that we sustain!

By His Grace ~

My Grace is Sufficient used with permission Doorpost Verses

Sometimes, it’s hard to get up,
to greet a brand new day
sometimes, I think in my bed
I should cover up and stay.

Sometimes, it’s hard to put,
one foot, in front of the other
sometimes, I ask myself . . .
why should I even bother.

Sometimes, it’s hard to dress,
to wash my face and hair
sometimes, the pain I feel
is just too much to bear.

Sometimes, it’s hard to leave,
to close and lock the door
sometimes, I don’t want to go
even to my favorite store.

But, whenever I start to feel,
today ~ I just cannot do . . . .
Jesus whispers in my ear
“My grace will get you through!”

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

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

The Path of Grief Unknown ~

~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ the-lord-is-with-us-in-the-valley

I walk the path of grief,
in the valley of pain unknown
but Jesus is here with me . . .
so I don’t have to walk it alone.

The path has its ups and down,
the valley, its highs and lows
but Jesus is here with me . . .
in the midst of my sorrows.

The pathway of heartache,
is paved with dread and fear
but Jesus is here with me . . .
His grace is always near.

The days seem to creep along,
the nights are without end
but Jesus is here with me . . .
my Comforter, my Friend.

I walk the pathway of pain,
but I’m not walking it alone
for Jesus is here with me . . .
on the path, of grief unknown.

~~~~~~~~

” Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

What Is A Teardrop?

he-will-wipe-every-tear-from-their-eyes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~

What is a teardrop,
what causes it to fall
why do they even form
when we cry or bawl?

What are they made of,
what causes them to drip
why are they salty
when they fall on our lip?

What makes them go splat,
what causes them to stain
why do they soak in
when they fall like rain.

What turns on each drop,
what causes them to spout
why do they gush
when will they run out?

What makes us weep,
what causes us to cry
when will Jesus come . . .
so God ~ can wipe them dry?

~~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death,

Heaven’s Tears ~

heavens-tears ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible VErses

Lord, I know you have a bottle,
collecting all my tears . . .
from the pain and sorrow
I’ve had throughout the years.

They must be overflowing,
forming a river wide and deep
and I’m sure before my life ends
I’ll have more of them to weep.

Lord I know, You know my pain,
for You ~ have suffered too
and I wonder if there’s a bottle
up in heaven just for You.

It must be gushing over,
with all the tears You cry
over those who don’t believe
the reason You had to die.

Lord, I know one day our tears,
will forever stop and cease
and the river of tears in heaven
will flow with eternal peace!

“And he shewed me a pure river
of water of life, clear as crystal,

of God and of the Lamb.”

Sticky Note to God 8.10.14

Sticky Note To God 8.10.14


Our Worldly Home ~

Going Home by Doug Shelton free photo from CreationSwap

In this, our worldly home,
there is misery and pain
we toil and we labor . . .
but, it’s all done in vain.

We fight off the weariness,
from being disillusioned
we try not to faint under
the constant confusion.

All of our grueling work,
never seems to pay off
at times at our own selves
we can’t help but to scoff.

We still have hunger pangs,
our thirst is never satisfied
all our disappointments
are eternally magnified.

We feel the throb of sorrow,
we know the sting of grief
from sickness and death
we know there’s no relief.

In this, our worldly home,
the curse of sin always reigns
but, in our heavenly home . . .
nothing will cause us any pain!

Just Like Peter!

Messed Up by kelly Sikkema free photo #16451

Lord, how many times have I denied You,
unlike Peter, I know of more than three
yet, just like Peter all I really wanted
was to follow and go along with Thee.

Lord, how many times did I reject,
the promises I found in Your Word
for, when faced with life’s impossibilities
I acted as if these truths, I never heard.

Lord, how many times did I refuse,
the path You had laid out for me
for, when my selfish pride took control
Your plans I didn’t want to see.

Lord, how many times did I decline,
Your mercy and endless grace
for, when I found  true contentment
it wasn’t You, who I embraced.

Lord, how many times have I denied,
too many to count, I do fear
that is why today I offer You . . .
my repentant, regretful tears!

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

Matthew 26:75
King James Version 

“And Peter remembered the word of Jesus,
which said unto him, Before the cock crow,
thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out,
and wept bitterly.”

Through it All ~

Through it All ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Through the mountain,
God led me
through the hardships
He supplied me.

Through the darkness,
God directed me
through the uncertainties
He never left me.

Though the high waters,
God brought me
through the sorrow
He comforted me.

Through the storms,
God protected me
through the heartache
He cared for me.

Through the desert,
God guided me
through the loneliness
He loved me.

Through the valley,
God carried me
through the grief
He shouldered me.

Through the wilderness,
God was with me
through all of my doubts . . .
He waited for me!

~~~~~~

Psalm 136:16
King James Version

“To him which led his people
through the wilderness:
for his mercy endureth for ever.”

By His Stripes ?

lamb-of-god free photo

If Jesus abased and humbled Himself,
then why don’t we hold Him in esteem?
If He was obedient even unto the cross,
then why won’t His salvation we redeem?

If He bore His own grief and sorrow,
then why don’t we think He’ll take ours?
If He took upon Himself our punishment
then why don’t we see His scars?

If He was wounded for our transgressions,
then why do we still pursue after sin?
If He was bruised for our iniquities,
then why does immorality still win?

If His chastisement became our peace,
then why do we still have so much conflict?
If by His stripes, we have been healed,
then why do we on others ~ pain inflict?

If He was oppressed and treated unfairly,
then why do we still treat Him this way?
It must be true what the Bible tells us,
all of His sheep . . . have gone astray!

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

Isaiah 53:5
King James Version

“But he was wounded for our
transgressions, he was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our
peace was upon him; and with his
stripes we are healed.”

Isaiah 53:6
King James Version

“All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

In The Twinkling Of An Eye ~

In Just A Twinkle Of My Eye ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In the twinkling of an eye,
with my Lord, I’m going to be
upon that glorious trumpet blow
on the clouds He’ll come for me.

My tired, weak fragile body,
will be changed into a new one
in just a twinkling of an eye
my new life will have begun.

No longer will I hurt,
pain won’t have its grip on me
in just a twinkling of an eye
in heaven I will finally be.

My tears of grief and sorrow,
will turn to cries of glee
in just a twinkling of an eye
His glory  will be all I see.

No more will I have to battle,
the burdens of this life
in just a twinkling of an eye
I’ll have victory over strife.

With my Lord, I will be
to this world I’ll bid goodbye
and I’ll dwell in perfect peace
in just a twinkling of an eye!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:52
King James Version

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.”

Jesus Is Always There!

Through all the pain and sorrow,
the ones we own, the ones we borrow
the ones we make, the ones we bear
Jesus is always there!

Within all the grief of our tears,
the ones of love, the ones of fears
the ones we cause, the ones we share
Jesus is always there!

During all the trials and tribulations
the ones of hope, the ones of frustrations
the ones we conceal, the ones we declare
Jesus is always there!

In all the uncertainties that lay ahead,
the ones we know, the ones we dread
the ones we risk, the ones we dare
Jesus is always there!

Throughout the storms of this life,
the ones of calm, the ones of strife
the ones we cede, the ones we fare
Jesus is always there!

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

Until Heaven We Be

Heaven 2 by  Jon Kenney free photo #5361

His peace was mine today,
I’ll claim it for tomorrow
it shall sustain me through
this time of grief and sorrow.

His comfort was mine today,
I know it will always be
for He promises to ease the hurt
crushing, the insides of me.

His light was mine today,
I saw it shine in my despair
I know that in His time
my heart He will repair.

He held my hand today,
walked me through the pain
I know He’ll keep holding it
until  heaven ~ we be again.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus Knows Your Pain ~

Dealing with Pain by Marian Trinidad free photo # 8971

Jesus knows your pain,
He understands your grief
He knows that only His love
can bring your heart relief.

He recognizes your sorrow,
He sees the spiteful sting
and the grace He has for you
in your life, He wants to bring.

He’s aware of your rejection,
He hears others put you down
and His favor and His mercy
will be your victory crown.

He identifies with your hurt,
the tenderness of your ache
and He will bring you comfort
that no man could ever break.

For He too ~ was rejected,
His life others gladly discarded
He knows the agony inflected
when your cry is disregarded.

Jesus knows your pain,
He wants to give you relief
for He died to put an end to
your sorrow and your grief.

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:3
King James Version

“He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces from him;
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”
