Yet, Another Roadblock ~

Up against,
yet, another roadblock
problems have you in
a dreaded headlock?

Well, don’t quit yet,
God will help you
and over this barrier
He’ll get you through.

Up against,
one more obstacle
worries have you thinking
this one is impossible.

Well don’t stop yet,
God will draw you near
and through this hurdle
with Him you’ll clear.

Up against,
yet another brick wall
well don’t you forget . . .
on God’s name to call!

Psalm 145:18

“The Lord is nigh unto all
them that call upon him,
to all that call upon
him in truth.”

God Has A Plan ~

For every trial,
God has a purpose
He has a plan . . .
before they surface.

He sends us tests,
deserving or not
to see how much
grace we have got.

It is up to us,
how we will react
whether our troubles
our faith will impact.

Some choose to grow,
resentful and bitter
some opt to make
their faith in God bigger.

For every trial,
God sends to us . . .
He’ll reveal the purpose
as we increase our trust!

~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.

To him be glory both
now and for ever. Amen.

Faith Fortified ~

faith-fortified-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, let me obtain,
faith that is greater
give to me the kind
not able to waiver.

Let it be strong,
mighty and firm
so when it’s tested
I will not squirm.

Lord, let me acquire,
faith, mountain moving
take this mustard seed
and keep it growing.

Let it take root,
deep in my soul
so when it’s tried
I will not fold.

Lord, may my faith,
be in You fortified
so when tested or tried
I’ll not be horrified!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 17:5

“And the apostles said
unto the Lord,
Increase our faith.”

On The Winds of Adversity ~

on-the-winds-of-adversity-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

On the winds of adversity,
God seems to test us
and all we can really do . . .
is to hold on to our trust.

With each passing gale,
that rages through our life
all we can really do . . .
is to give Jesus our strife.

As the gusts keep coming,
and the storms continue on
all we can really do . . .
is to be calm til they’re gone.

With each rushing wind,
that comes about our way
all we can really do . . .
is to turn to God and pray.

For, the storms of this life,
will eventually cease
and one day Jesus will bring . . .
to our souls perfect peace!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:26

“And he saith unto them,
Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith?
Then he arose,
and rebuked the winds
and the sea; and there was
a great calm.”

Through the Eyes of God’s Grace ~

Through the Eyes of God's Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I got me this thing,
but, at it I don’t look
instead my eyes are on
what’s in the Good Book.

This thing is pretty heavy,
but, it doesn’t weigh me down
because I am focusing
on my everlasting crown.

This one thing I know for sure,
what I have is temporal
and all that really matters
is what will be eternal.

This thing is quite annoying,
it’s always in my face
but, I can see right past it
through the eyes of God’s grace.

I got me this thing,
but, over it I’ll not worry
for one day I want to see . . .
God, in all His wondrous glory!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

“For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more
exceeding and eternal
weight of glory;

While we look not at the things
which are seen, but at the things
which are not seen: for the things
which are seen are temporal;
but the things which are not seen
are eternal.”

When Life’s Not Fair ~

When Life's Unfair ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When things in life,
are just not fair . . .
and you feel you have
way too much to bear.

That’s when you need,
more of God’s grace
to help you through
the dilemmas you face.

When bad things happen,
though you are good
and you don’t understand
why they ever should.

That’s when you need,
more of God’s mercy
so you can trust Him on
your uncertain journey.

When God doesn’t meet,
your expectations
when you become full
of doubt and questions.

That’s when you need,
to put your life in His hands
and pray He’ll reveal . . .
the purpose behind His plans!

~~~~~~~~~

James 1:12

“Blessed is the man that
endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive
the crown of life,
which the Lord hath
promised to them
that love him.”

This is A Test ~

This is A Test ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s sending me tests,
He’s giving me situations
He’s seeing if I’ll claim
His peace trough tribulations.

God’s giving me a chance,
to find new grace each day
He is seeing if my faith
will hold up along the way.

God’s working in me patience,
He wants to affirm my hope
He’s teaching me to trust Him
for the strength each day to cope.

God’s seeing if I will rejoice,
when things are all askew
He’s looking to see His glory
in my life shinning through.

God’s giving me these tests,
to see if my faith will stumble
He ‘s sending me experiences
so to keep me meek and humble!

~~~~~~

Romans 5:3-4

And not only so, but we glory in
tribulations also: knowing that
tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience;
and experience, hope:”

When Trials Blow Our Way ~

When Trials Blow Our Way ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When trials blow our way,
on the winds of stress
when we start to feel
tense and hard pressed.

That’s when we need to go,
to the One who’ll ease
the whirlwind we are in
into a tranquil breeze.

When adversity slams,
on the door of our trust
when anxiety’s clamor
starts to overwhelm us.

That’s when we need to go,
to the Savior of our soul
and give to Him our fears
so He can take control.

When trials blow our way,
as worry slams about
that’s when we need Jesus . . .
to chart for us new route!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:26

“And he saith unto them,
Why are ye fearful, O ye
of little faith? Then he
arose, and rebuked the
winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.”

Sticky Note From God 02.10.16

STICKY NOTE FROM  GOD ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann  ~ 02.10.16 ~


Jesus Will See You Through ~

Though your mind is weary,
and your spirit is feeling small
though your load is heavy
and your tears are like a waterfall.

Though the trial before you,
looks like the tallest mountain peak
and the hardship you now must face
is making you feel faint and weak.

Though you cannot see the future,
nor do you know where it might lead
and you don’t have the resources
for everything that you need.

Though your mind can’t understand,
and your body has not the wherewithal
lift your soul to Jesus . . .
who will see you through it all!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:34
King James Version

“Take therefore no thought
for the morrow:
for the morrow
shall take thought
for the things of itself.

Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof.”

Count it All for Joy ~

Count if All For Joy ~ CHRISTiaan poetry by deborah ann

Count it all for joy,
each trial you go through
give them not a second thought
then watch what God will do.

Count it all for joy,
when tested for your belief
patience will be your reward
and His peace your relief.

Count it all for joy,
as He performs His work you
let His perfection complete
and make you someone new.

Count it all for joy,
lest you be tossed about
seek by faith all your needs
and in God never doubt.

Count it all for joy,
for His wisdom is your gain
ask believing without fear
and in your life He will reign.

Count it all for joy,
no matter your despair
let His love fill you up
and your life He’ll repair!

~~~~~~

James 1:2-3
King James Version

“My brethren, count it all joy
when ye fall
into divers temptations;

Knowing this,
that the trying of your faith

 worketh patience.”
