A Life Willing ~

Lord give me a life,
full of only You
with a faith
through Your view.

Let the Holy Spirit,
do all the leading
so I may be to You
faithfully pleasing.

Lord give me a heart,
that is always willing
to be compassionate
merciful and giving.

Let me not live a life,
stubbornly self-centered
but one that is to You
steadfastly surrendered.

Lord, give me a life,
eager to do Your will
a heart empty of me
so Your love it can fill!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 25:21

“His lord said unto him, Well done,
thou good and faithful servant:
thou hast been faithful over a
few things, I will make thee
ruler over many things: enter
thou into the joy of thy lord.”

Afternoon Ponderings ~02.20.18~


I Stood ~

I stood,
I knew it was a test
I knew when it was over
I would be blessed.

I hung on,
I did not break down
I knew I had to keep
my heart and mind sound.

I was firm,
I did not move
I knew my faith in God
He wanted me to prove.

I endured,
I did not waiver
I held on tight
to my Lord and Savor.

I persevered,
I did not let go
I knew my trust in God
He needed me to show.

I stood,
I kept on solid ground
I remained steadfast
I did not fall down!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 10:12

“Wherefore let him that
thinketh he standeth
take heed lest he fall.”

From the Poem:    Steadfast


Mega Faith ~

Mega Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I want to have . . .
mega faith and trust
I want it to be great
strong, bold and robust.

I want it to be rich,
persistent and steadfast
I want it to be grand
so to eternity it’ll last.

I want it to be sincere,
rich and sensitive
I want it to be insightful
aware and receptive.

I want it to be deep,
not shallow or superficial
I want it to be genuine
not fake or artificial.

Lord, I want mega faith,
in its truest form . . .
I want my faith in You
to heal and transform!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 15:28

“Then Jesus answered and said unto her,
O woman, great is thy faith:
be it unto thee even as thou wilt.
And her daughter was made whole
from that very hour.”

Hope Everlasting ~

hope-in-living-god CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Hope brings . . .

my heart gladness,
rest unto my strife
Hope gives me courage
brings strength to my life.

Hope lifts up my soul,
fills me full of grace
Hope teaches me to wait
to seek His Holy face.

Hope is my shield,
in these days of evil
Hope is my escape from
the world’s upheaval.

Hope is my refuge,
a place for me to run
Hope is my anchor
in God’s begotten Son.

Hope is everlasting,
brings God  great pleasure
Hope makes me happy
for, it’s my eternal treasure.

Hope is full of praise,
is something I can trust
Hope turns me away
from every earthly lust.

Hope is my salvation,
full of mercy and favor
Hope brings redemption
through my Lord and Savior.

Hope is my patience,
in things that aren’t seen
Hope is my future promise
to endure time in between.

Hope is steadfast,
it is active and lively
Hope is glorious
it’s confident and mighty.

Hope is my portion,
the source of my peace
Hope is my assurance
my joy will never cease.

My Hope is up in heaven,
I found it in the Good Word
My Hope is the mystery behind
all of the truth I have heard!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 3:15

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer
to every man that asketh you
a reason of the hope that is in you
with meekness and fear:”

King James Version

~~~~~~~

I used over 20 different verses
found in the Old and New Testament
to tell what My Hope is based on.

A Heart For God ~

Trust the Lord with all Your Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A heart that is peaceful,
knows in God it can trust
it knows believing this
is a daily must.

A heart that is satisfied,
knows God is always there
it knows it can give Him
its every worry and care.

A heart that is content,
knows God is good
it knows He will do
just what He should.

A heart that is committed,
know God always leads
it knows He will supply
all of its wants and needs.

A heart that is devoted,
knows God loves its praise
it knows He is faithful
and follows all of His ways.

A heart that is for God,
can never go wrong . . .
for the heart that loves Him
is steadfast and strong!

According to Thy Word ~

Save Your People used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, keep our feet steady,
let us walk according to Thy Word
help us to stand firm and strong
amidst the earth’s ungodly herd.

Lord, keep us from this world,
from its blasphemous desires
help us to stay close to You
and do what Your Word requires.

Lord, keep us in Thy company,
surround us in Your love and grace
let not this scornful generation
cause us to turn from You our face.

Lord, keep us safe and sane,
in a world that has gone purely mad
let us not be among the evil doers
who are addicted ~ to all things bad.

Lord, keep our feet steady,
let us walk according to Thy Word
so that we can stand and be strong
amongst the world’s irreligious herd!

A Trusting Heart ~

Trust the Lord with all Your Heart used with pemission IBible VErses

A trusting heart knows God,
it is filled with His peace
it has a calmness deep within
that it knows will never cease.

It is full of worship and praise,
is triumphant in all its ways
it is devoted and committed
honoring God with all its days.

It is steadfast and faithful,
it has not a wavering beat
it rises in the morning
so it’s Savior it can meet.

It is happy and content,
joyfulness flows throughout
it harbors not a fear
and casts away all doubt.

A trusting heart knows God,
is always within its reach
it has a calmness deep within
because it is full of His peace!
