The Living Fountain ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Thrist No More - IBible Verse

When my soul is parched,
from all the weariness . . .
when my heart cries out
enough ~ to the dreariness.

I go to the Living Fountain,
sip from the Word of hope
praying all the while . . .
Lord, give me strength to cope.

The Word’s spoken by Jesus,
are the streams of eternal life
as they ebb and flow within
they decrease my inner strife.

Anything from my Savior,
is all I need to satisfy . . .
the thirst of this drained soul
just one Word ~ will gratify.

When my soul is parched,
from all the  dreariness . . .
I read my Bible, so Jesus
can quench the weariness!

~~~~~~~~

John 4:14

“But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall give him
shall be in him a well of water
springing up into everlasting life.”

King James Version

Living Water ~

Water Bottle by Daniel R free photo #10215

Are you happy,
are you satisfied
does your life now
leave you gratified?

Or are you wanting,
something else
something you can’t find
within yourself?

Are you comfortable,
are you content
have all that you need
in any event?

Or are you finding,
there has to be more
though you have it all
you still feel poor?

Then my friends . . .
I know what you need
there are living waters
that will never recede.

All you have now,
will turn into rust . . .
but, Jesus is someone
you can always trust.

He’ll quench your thirst,
with hope He’ll fill you
and a new life He’ll breath
right into you too.

So come my friends,
be filled with His fullness
from the water of grace
drink in Jesus’ goodness!

John 7:37

“In the last day, that great day of the feast,
Jesus stood and cried, saying,
If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink”

The Soul Pants ~

The Soul Pants ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The soul pants,
after pastures green
living waters . . .
life-giving streams.

This thirst needs,
spiritual blessings
wrapped in the truth
not just the dressings.

Hunger pains,
not being satisfied
needing more of Jesus
and why He died.

Those deaf ears,
don’t want to hear
no longer willing
to heed or adhere.

Blinded eyes,
can’t really see . . .
if Jesus doesn’t live
inside of thee.

Stony hearts,
wrenched souls
need more than ever
to be consoled.

The soul pants,
for the truth . . .
as in the days
of its youth!

Psalm 42:1
King James Version

“As the hart panteth
after the water brooks,

so panteth my soul
after thee, O God.”

Healing Waters ~

Peace that Surpasses used with permission IBible Verses on Facebook

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of this life
leaves us begging for relief.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove its own heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

We thirst for healing waters,
for a peaceful resting place
where we can forget the pain
that’s too unbearable to face.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
only God can relieve . . .
the throbbing in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the anguished true relief!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7
King James Version

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Thirsty ~

Thirsty ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I am thirsty,
I need more of You . . .
for, there’s a spiritual drought
right now I am going through.

Fill me with fresh hope,
take the aridness in my soul away
rain on me Your tender mercy
renew my heart in You today.

Lord, I am thirsty,
my arms are opened wide
protect and defend me
come be my eternal guide.

Make this dry season I’m in,
turn into Your valley green
where Living Waters flow
so on You I may lean.

Lord, I am thirsty,
I need more of You . . .
restore in me my youthful faith
like the refreshing morning dew!

~~~~~~

Psalm 110:3
King James Version
“Thy people shall be willing
in the day of thy power,

in the beauties of holiness
from the womb of the morning:

thou hast the dew
of thy youth.

My Friends Think I’m Peculiar

My Friends Think I'm Peculiar ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My friends think I’m peculiar,
some say I am a little odd
most think that I’m just weird
because I still trust in God.

They too were once believers,
but now they walk in the dark
the light once shinning in them
has become cold and stark.

They no longer hunger,
or thirst for the righteous way
they no longer see the truth
in what the Bible has to say.

For most they have given up,
the narrow way was too hard
and with every bump and jolt
their faith in God was jarred.

Now their hearts are set upon,
the worldly things of the flesh
they tell me that my  beliefs
and their desires do not mesh.

My friends think I’m peculiar,
some say I am a little odd . . .
but I pray for them everyday
to turn back and trust in God.

1 Peter 2:9
King James Version

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal
priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people;
that ye should shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of darkness into his
marvellous light;”
