When Faith Hibernates ~

Sometimes my faith feels,
as if it’s in hibernation . . .
like it decided to take off
on some wintry vacation.

Thought I know it’s alive,
I don’t feel it growing
it’s as if the living water
in it just stopped flowing.

Sometime my faith feels,
as if it’s been frozen . . .
like it just iced over
numbing my devotion.

Though I know it’s aware,
I don’t feel the fullness
it’s as if the well of life
lost its true brilliance.

Sometimes my faith needs,
a vivid reawakening
to bring it back from its . . .
self-inflected hibernating!

Ephesians 4:23

And be renewed
in the spirit
of your mind;

Good Morning Quote ~07.12.18~


Stir Our Hearts Lord ~

Stir our hearts Lord,
awaken our desire
to learn to do
all that You require.

Stir up our prayer life,
our thoughts stimulate
keep us on our knees
lest we become stagnate.

Stir our minds Lord,
excite us to press on
keep us watchful
till the race is won.

Stir up our faith life,
arouse our holy dullness
so we may be filled with
the Holy Spirit’s fullness.

Stir our souls Lord,
evoke a new awakening
let us have a resurgence
of Your Spirit’s enlightening!

~~~~~~

Psalm 43:3-4

“O send out thy light and thy truth:
let them lead me; let them bring me
unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.

Isaiah 57:15

“For thus saith the high and lofty One
that inhabiteth eternity,
whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high
and holy place, with him also that is
of a contrite and humble spirit,
to revive the spirit of the humble,
and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

Sticky Note From God 06.23.17


Once Again Reborn ~

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:23

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth
for ever.”

Sticky Note to God 03.23.17


There’s Nothing God Can’t Do ~

therss-nothing-too-hard-for-god-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is nothing too hard,
for God to do . . .
there isn’t anything
He can’t perform  for you.

There isn’t a place too tight,
God can’t get you out of
there isn’t a problem so deep
He can’t help you rise above.

There isn’t a relationship,
God can’t save and heal
there isn’t a broken heart
He can’t make again to feel.

There isn’t a single fear,
God can’t make go away
there isn’t one little doubt
He can’t begin to sway.

There isn’t a spiritual crisis,
God can’t alleviate
there isn’t a physical issue
He can’t regenerate.

Nothing is too hard for God,
there’s not anything He can’t do
all He needs to have . . .
is faith and trust from you!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 18:14

“Is any thing too hard for the Lord?
At the time appointed I will return
unto thee, according to the time
of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

God Cares for You ~

Heavenly Father,
hear my prayer

to know You care.

Give to them,
peace of mind

Heavenly Father,
so many today
have fallen so far
from You away.

Give to them,
a heart revival
renew their minds
till Your arrival.

Heavenly Father,
here is my prayer
as I give You thanks
for Your love and care!

Rain On Us Lord ~

Rain Down On Us Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Rain on us Lord,
pour down Your holy fire
give every heart on earth
for You, a burning desire.

Flood us in Your love,
sprinkle us with Your grace
let the showers of Your mercy
every soul come to embrace.

Rain on us Lord,
let the skies open up wide
pour out life-giving water
till You gather Your bride.

Send on us a torrent,
of Your power and might
drench us with the peace
of Your saving light.

Rain on us Lord,
ignite a burning desire
set every soul aflame . . .
with the Holy Spirit’s fire!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 24:32

“And they said one to another,
Did not our heart burn within us,
while he talked with us by the way,
and while he opened to us the scriptures?”

We Need More FIRE ~

Holy Spirit by George Webster free photo #8684

We need more fire,
from our pulpits today
we need less smoke
about spiritual decay.

We need more brimstone,
in our sermons today
we need less indifference
as to why we go astray.

We need more heat,
from our preachers today
we need less aloofness
about the narrow way.

We need more fervor,
from our teachers today
we need less remoteness
about judgment day.

We need more passion,
from our churches today
we need to detach ourselves
from its idle hearsay!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 4:2

“Preach the word; be instant in season,
out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort
 with all long suffering and doctrine.”

We Need a Revival ~

We Need A True Revival ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, we need to shift,
away from basic survival
we need to be moved . . .
to a place of true revival.

We need a spiritual jolt,
for we’ve become lukewarm
we need to be energized
so lives You can transform.

We need to break free,
from the same old routine
we need to be for You . . .
a soul saving machine.

We need to get motivated,
for we’re neither hot nor cold
we need to stop being tolerable
so for You we can be bold.

Lord, we need an awakening,
a real spiritual kick
lest You spit us out . . .
because we make You sick!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 3:15-16

“I know thy works, that thou art
neither cold nor hot: I would
thou wert cold or hot.

So then because thou art lukewarm,
and neither cold nor hot, I will
 spue thee out of my mouth.”

In the Middle of the Night ~

In the Middle of the Night ~ CHristian poetry by deborah ann - photo Creationswap

In the middle of the night,
when all is calm and quiet
when in my house . . .
there’s a peaceful climate.

I take advantage,
of the early morning hour
and I thank God . . .
for His strength and power.

I thank Him for the new day,
He has in store for me . . .
I thank Him for helping me
believe in things, I can’t see.

I thank Him for His mercy,
He showers on me anew
I thank Him for His grace
that restores and renews.

I thank Him for His love,
above all other things . . .
I thank Him for the peace
just knowing Him brings.

In the middle of the night,
if awaken from my sleep . . .
I thank my heavenly Father
for every blessing that I reap!

 ” At midnight I will rise to give
thanks unto thee because
of thy righteous judgments.”

Do Not Lose Heart ~

Do Not Lose Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Do not lose heart,
do not give up today
ask God to bring renewal
into your life, straight away.

Do not lose focus,
keep Jesus in your sight
do not pull yourself from
the truth found in His light.

Do not lose trust,
do not stop believing
soon answered prayers . . .
you will start receiving.

Do not lose hope,
keep your mind centered
on the grace Jesus brought
when in your life, He entered.

Do not  lose heart,
do not faint away . . .
ask God to be renewed
right here, right now, today!

~~~~~~~~~~~

” For which cause we faint not;
but though our outward man perish,
yet the inward man is renewed day by day.”

Fall’s Refresing Rain ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ letitrain IBible Verses

I love when God sends,
Fall’s first refreshing rain
to wash away the grime
on my soul’s windowpane.

It helps me to see,
over summers hot break
the dryness that’s within. . .
changes, I need to make.

I study the dust settling,
atop my old, trusty Bible
shaking it off, I am ready
for a Holy Spirit revival.

The  showers bring about,
a renewal in my heart
restoring my faith and hope
before, winters chilly start.

I love when God sends,
Fall’s first refreshing rain
so in my heart and soul
Jesus, can settle in again!

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

Isaiah 45:8

“Drop down, ye heavens, from above,
and let the skies pour down righteousness:
let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation,
and let righteousness spring up together;
