The Depth of God’s Mercy ~

When I am knee high,
in grief and sorrow
when I am anxious
about each tomorrow.

I look at the span,
of God’s mercy . . .
instead of the extent
of my worry.

When I am waist deep,
in the vast unknown
when fear’s grip
clinches my backbone

I look to the depth,
of God’s grace . . .
instead of the expanse
of the dark space.

When I am as low,
as I can possibly go . . .
I look to the favor
God on me bestows!

~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come
boldly unto the throne
of grace, that we may
obtain mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need.

Be Joyful and Prayerful ~

Be joyful in hope,
be faithful in prayer
don’t forget to give . . .
Jesus your care.

For to be joyful,
when troubles increase
will make your anxiety
decline and decrease.

Be patient in affliction,
be steadfast and firm
don’t forget to give . . .
Jesus your concern.

For to be diligent,
when problems arise
will help you to keep
your eyes on the prize.

Be joyful and prayerful,
be so ever patient too
and never forget . . .
how much Jesus loves you!

Romans 12:12

Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation;
continuing instant
in prayer;

Life Is Like A Road Trip ~

 

Life is like a road trip,
a long winding excursion
requiring from us
lots of physical exertion.

But we often get,
mentally fatigued
and need a rest stop
so to be relieved.

Jesus is that stop,
the oasis of our hope
where living waters fill us
with the strength to cope.

Life is a lengthy journey,
each one of us is on it
and the wear and tear
can drag down our spirit.

We get exhausted,
from the grit and grind
and we need a brake
for our heart and mind.

Jesus is that break,
it’s in Him we find rest
a perfect place to stop . . .
when weary or stressed!

Isaiah 57:10

“Thou art wearied in the greatness of thy way;
yet saidst thou not, There is no hope:
thou hast found the life of thine hand;
therefore thou wast not grieved.”

Matthew 11:29

“Take my yoke upon you,
and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly
in heart: and ye shall
find rest unto your souls.

Cling ~

Cling
when you’re heart
is broken
Cling
when no words
can be spoken.

Cling
when you’re downcast
and depressed
Cling
when you’re troubled
and harassed.

Cling
when you’re stricken
and afflicted
Cling
when you’re confused
and conflicted.

Cling
when you’re defeated
and overburdened
Cling
when you’re weak
and disheartened.

Cling
when you’re worried
and tormented
Cling
when you’re restless
and discontented.

Cling
when you’re feeling
sad and blue
Cling
when you don’t know . . .
what else to do!

as ye have done unto this day.”

Give God Your Worries ~

give-god-your-worries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people worry,
about anything
some get anxious
over everything.

Some wrestle daily,
with their troubles
some nightly fight
with their struggles.

But, those who wait,
on the Lord are still
the worries they have
their peace cannot steal.

They cast their anxiety,
onto Jesus each day
they don’t fret about
things coming their way.

Some people worry,
about anything
but, those who trust God
give Him their everything!

Philippians 4:7

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

Gripped With Fear ~

gripped-with-fear-chrisian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Gripped with fear,
worry and doubt
can’t shut anxiety
in your mind out?

Then you need God,
to release His power
so your every fear
you can overpower.

Seized by nerves,
enveloped in troubles
clinging to your fears
with white knuckles?

Then you need to let go,
of all of your cares
and give to Jesus
your burdens to bear.

If you want to shake,
fears tightening grip
seek God and from it . . .
you will easily slip!

~~~~~~

Psalm 34:4

“I sought the Lord,
and he heard me,
and delivered me
from all my fears.”

God Will Make A Way ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ God Will Make A Way - IBible Verses

Does the road ahead,
seem long and bleak
are all your troubles
making you feel weak?

Does the passage ahead,
seem like it’ll never end
fear more difficulties . . .
are just around the bend?

Does that path ahead,
look overly menacing
are the ruts and dips
way too threatening?

Well, don’t you fret,
God will make a way
in the wilderness
He’ll not have you stay.

Though the road be bleak,
and the path be long
God is with you . . .
He will make you strong!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:19

“Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way
in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.”
