God Knows Our Potential ~

God knows our potential,
before we even do
to our capabilities
He has a pristine view.

God sees our weakness,
He knows our every fear
He understands we need
the way to be made clear.

God sees our strengths,
He knows our abilities
He has eternal insight
into all our possibilities.

God sees our doubt,
He knows we’re human
He knows we need His might
to get us up and movin’.

God knows our potential,
He sees what we’re made of
He knows all we need is . . .
His guidance from above!

Judges 6:12-14

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him,
and said unto him, The Lord is with thee,
thou mighty man of valour.

And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord,
if the Lord be with us, why then is all
this befallen us? and where be all his
miracles which our fathers told us of,
saying, Did not the Lord bring us up
from Egypt? but now the Lord hath
forsaken us, and delivered us into
the hands of the Midianites.

And the Lord looked upon him, and said,
Go in this thy might, and thou shalt
save Israel from the hand of the
Midianites: have not I sent thee?”

When My Heart is Troubled ~

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
I gratefully go to God
with my pleas and prayers.

When my heart is faint,
when my mind has unrest
I pray for God’s peace
upon my first request.

When my heart is heavy,
when my mind has doubt
I pray ceaselessly believing
God will work things out.

When my heart is weary,
when my mind’s full of fear
I pray asking my Father
to drawn me close and near.

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
at Jesus’ feet I leave them
with my thankful prayers!

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by
prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let
your requests be made
known unto God.”

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?

Praying for God Peace ~

praying-for-god-peace-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every day to God,
I pray for His peace
I ask that my faith
in Him, to increase.

I pray for renewal,
in spirit and in mind
I ask that His will
will be easy to find.

Every day to God,
I pray for directions
I ask Him to give me
Spirit filled instructions.

I give Him my burden,
my worry and my care
I let Him know they are
too much for me to bear.

Every day to God,
His peace, I pray for
and He never fails . . .
to always give me more!

Beyond Thanksgiving Day ~

beyond-thanksgiving-day-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Thanksgiving is more,
than food and football
it goes way beyond . . .
turkey on the table.

Thanksgiving isn’t about,
just one meal we share
it goes way further . . .
then a dinner prayer.

Thanksgiving is about,
each day of the year
making sure our praise
God is able to hear.

Thanksgiving isn’t about,
a single day with family
it goes way past . . .
our sated apathy.

Thanksgiving is about,
being thankful for all things
no matter what in this life . . .
to your table that it brings!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

Grace To The Humble ~

grace-for-the-humble-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When trials blow,
me to the ground
when my cares
take me down.

Before I rise,
back to my feet
I pray to God
my needs to meet.

When storms blow,
through my door
when my worries
take me to the floor.

Before I get,
to my legs back
I pray to God
for the grace I lack.

For, in my life,
to God I’ve found
to humble myself
when I am down!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:6

“But he giveth more grace.
Wherefore he saith,
God resisteth the proud,
but giveth grace
unto the humble.”

No One Can Steal My Joy ~

no-one-can-steal-my-joy-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

No one can steal the joy,
bubbling inside of me
no problem big or small
can rob me of my glee.

No test or trial,
can take my joy away
no amount of pain will cause
my joyousness to give way.

No bumps in the road,
will cause my joy to cease
no detour along the way
will seize my future peace.

No sorrow or heartbreak,
can wipe my joy out
in all things good or bad
it’s for joy, them I count.

No one can steal from me,
not one thing can capture
the joy I have looking . . .
forward to the rapture!

James 1:2

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

Life Isn’t Fair ~

life-isnt-fair-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God’s purposes are bigger,
than all of our troubles
He has His reason
for each of our struggles.

God uses our problems,
to temper our hearts
so His grace and mercy
in them He can impart.

God uses our worries,
to help us focus on
why He sent into this world
His own begotten Son.

God uses our burdens,
so we can learn to be
dependent on Jesus
not in what we can see.

God’s purposes are grander,
than our every care . . .
that’s why in the Bible
you won’t hear, life is fair!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things
work together for good

according to his purpose.”

A Perfect Getaway ~

A Perfect Get Away ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In times of trouble,
we need a hideaway
a place we can go . . .
just to get away.

We need a retreat,
a place to de-stress
we need a refuge
so we can decompress.

In times of troubles,
we need a resort
a place where we can find
some Godly support.

We need a haven,
a shelter of protection
we need a sanctuary
a place for reflection.

In times of trouble,
we need a getaway
and God provides . . .
the perfect hideaway!

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”

Mountain Climbing Faith ~

Mountain Climbing Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m climbing this mountain,
and I’m not going to stop
my confidence in God . . .
will get me to the top.

I’ll tackle every obstacle,
I will confront every fear
my absolute trust in God
will be my safety gear.

I’ll  get over my doubt,
I’ll get by the obstructions
my faith in God’s Word
will provide the directions.

I’ll combat the terrain,
I’ll move each hindrance
my eternal hope in God
will give me the assurance.

I’m climbing this mountain,
I will not fall or drop
for God promised me . . .
a reward at the top!

“Let us hold fast the profession
of our faith without wavering;

Faith Tried and Tested ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

My faith grows,
from being tested
it gets stronger
when in the Word
I am rested.

My faith rises,
from being redirected
it gets keener
when with God
I’m daily connected.

My faith increases,
from being tried
it gets sharper
when in Jesus
I faithfully abide.

My faith bounds,
from being proven
it gets firmer
when in the Spirit
my life gets movin’.

When my faith is tried,
I don’t think its odd
when its being tested
to me, its not weird
only because, I trust God!

My Prayer for Samuel ~

SAMUEL'S PRAYER
Samuel, God’s child,
His precious little one
trust Him to finish
what He has begun.

Gather your strength,
from the palm of His hands
know that He has for you
some mighty big plans.

Continue to be brave,
as this battle you fight
keep drawing on God’s
holy power and might.

Breath in His mercy,
exhale His grace
let His love for you
your tiny body embrace.

Samuel, God’s child,
Steve’s & Rachel’s precious son
stay brave, be strong . . .
believe this battle, will be won!

~~~~~~~~~

Please pray for little baby Samuel
who was born at 29 weeks 5 days,
and weighed in at 2 lbs 10 oz.
He was born into a family of great
faith and a deep love for God.

He and they need all of our prayers
for God’s strength, peace and mercy!

Needing a Boost ~

Needing a Boost ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Needing a boost,
a real lifter-upper
something to give
your nerves a buffer?

Then go to the Word,
look up God’s peace
and soon you’ll feel
a calming release.

Needing a hand,
an arm to hold on
something to grasp
till your fears are gone?

Then go the Word,
look up God’s grace
and soon you’ll feel
joy light up your face.

Needing a lifter-upper,
a hand, a boost, an arm?
Then go to your Bible . . .
and your worry it’ll disarm!

Above the Clouds ~

Above the Clouds ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Above the clouds,
I wish to be . . .
beyond the storms
awaiting me.

Higher places,
I wish to go . . .
before the gales
start to blow.

Beyond the rain,
I wish to fly . . .
past the gloom
rolling by.

Up and over,
I wish to soar . . .
high above
life’s daily roar.

Above the clouds,
Lord, I wish to be . . .
to a place of rest
right next to Thee!

“And I said,
Oh that I had wings

The Trials of Faith ~

The Testing of our Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The trials of our faith,
are more precious than gold
as God is refining us
for Him, to be bold.

They’re teaching us to trust,
God in and for everything
for He knows our faith
always needs strengthening.

The trials of our faith,
keeps us, looking forward
the hope that is to come
stops us, looking backward.

For our thoughts will turn,
to the coming of our King
and all the glory hallelujahs
one day we’re going to sing.

The trials and testings,
purify our faith and trust
for God is perfecting . . .
His image, right into us!

~~~~~~~~~~

Zechariah 13:9

“And I will bring the
third part through the fire,

and will refine them
as silver is refined,
and will try them as gold is tried:
they shall call on my name,
and I will hear them: I will say,

It is my people: and they shall say,
The Lord is my God.”

Stress Not ~

Stress Not ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’ve got worries,
but I’m not stressing
instead into God . . .
I’ll be hard pressing.

I’ve got problems,
God has a perfect plan
so I’m just leaving . . .
all of them in His hand.

I’ve got difficulties,
but, I’m not complaining
instead close to God . . .
I’ll keep on remaining.

I’ve got troubles,
God has an out for me
so I’ll just be waiting . . .
until one of them I see.

I’ve got worries,
but I’m not stressing
for I trust God’s working . . .
on sending me a blessing!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:25-26

‘Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought for your life,
what ye shall eat, or what ye
shall drink; nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on. Is not the
life more than meat,
and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air:
for they sow not, neither do
they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth
them. Are ye not much better
than they?”

We All Face Trials ~

We All Have Trials ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

We all face trials,
of many different kinds
some attack our bodies
others beset our minds.

Some assault our faith,
causing us to doubt
some assail our trust
tossing us all about.

We all have troubles,
just different situations
we all have suffered . . .
from diverse temptations.

Some know the results,
of falling for Satan’s lies
other’s feel the effects
of sin and compromise.

We all face trials,
temptations of all kinds
but we won’t be defeated
if we let joy fill out minds!

Take Heart ~

Take Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Take heart,
lest you become weary
for I’ll never forsake you
though things may be dreary.

Take heart,
when troubles come your way
for I came to give you peace
by shedding light on your way.

Take heart,
when worry’s at your door
for I came to give you hope
in a new life for evermore.

Take heart,
when burdens laden you
for I will lead and guide you
on what you need to do.

Take heart,
when disappointments mount
for I came to encourage you
on Me, you can always count!

One of Those Days ~

Shake Yourself Free ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Ever have,
one of those days . . .
you know the kind I mean
when you feel in a haze?

Nothing goes right,
from when you awaken
you feel heavily loaded
burdened and down laden.

Ever have,
one of those days . . .
where by the hour
you feel in a daze?

No matter what you do,
your bubble gets burst
everything goes . . .
from bad to worse.

Ever have,
one of those days . . .
well you can shake free of them
by giving God your praise!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 16:25-27

“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed,
and sang praises unto God:
and the prisoners heard them.

And suddenly there was a great earthquake,
so that the foundations of the prison were shaken:
and immediately all the doors were opened,
and every one’s bands were loosed.”

Our Burden Bearer ~

anxiety-500x500 used with permissions

I got me many worries,
an awful lot of cares
but, on my soul . . .
they don’t wear and tear.

When fears come my way,
I simply toss them aside
for, in my mind . . .
I don’t allow them to reside.

Trials may consume me,
fiery ones leap and bound
but, in my spirit . . .
they don’t stay around.

When I’m facing Satan,
I lose not one single hair
for, in my heart . . .
I don’t let His tactics scare.

I got me many concerns,
that could cause me terror
but, I give my every worry . . .
to my Burden Bearer!
