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!

James 1:2

when ye fall into divers temptations;

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.”

Every Day Hope ~

Every Day Hope ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Every day I find myself,
in the need for more hope
so I turn to my Bible . . .
for insights to help me cope.

Without its encouragement,
I know I would faint away
for tomorrow will surely bring . . .
more troubles than today.

Whenever I am struggling,
with what I should do . . .
I turn to the Scriptures
till my confidence grows anew.

The Bible persuades me,
to trust with all my heart
I gain security in knowing
Jesus from me, will never part.

Every day I find myself,
learning how to daily cope . . .
for each day I read all about
the reasons behind my hope!

Letting God Do ~

Letting God Do ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann  ~ photo IBible Verses

Sometimes letting go,
isn’t so easy to do . . .
especially when worry
has a tight hold on you.

But, God wants from us,
every troubling little thing
all that we can’t handle
so His power He can bring.

Sometimes letting go,
to us, doesn’t seem best
but, if we’re to hang on
we’ll never find any rest.

For, God wants to relieve,
the weight of our care
to learn to trust Jesus
so our burdens He’ll bear.

It’s not easy letting go,
letting God do . . . instead
but if we do and believe . . .
our peace will be widespread!

How Much Longer ~

When Will it End ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Troubles, troubles, troubles . . .
they are everywhere
anxieties, hardships, burdens
all kinds of different cares.

Sorrows, sorrows, sorrows . . .
so much pain and distress
grief, misery, suffering
all kinds of different stress.

Tears, tears, tears . . .
so many are being shed
persecution, torment, anguish
all kinds of different dread.

Wars, wars, wars . . .
at home and abroad
murders, slaughters, executions
all kinds of different squads

Troubles, sorrows, tears, wars . . .
when will it all come to an end
how much longer heavenly Father
till Jesus, You finally send?

One-Step- At-A-Time ~

It's A Daily Thing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creation Swap

It’s a daily thing,
this Christian walk
it’s a one-step-at-a-time
this Christian walk.

It’s a journey,
at times a troublesome one
it’s a battle
with Satan that must be won.

It’s a voyage,
one storm right after another
it’s a struggle
to keep our faith from going under.

It’s a passage,
from the darkness into the light
it’s an encounter
needing all our strength and might.

It’s an expedition,
with our very own cross to bear
it’s a fight
not to buckle under from our care.

It’s a daily thing,
this Christian walk
it’s a one-step-at-a-time
to walk this Christian walk!

God Is In The Midst ~

myrefuge ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

My God , He is in the midst,
I shall not be moved . . .
He is always at my side
this He has always proved.

For, He is my sure refuge,
He has kept me safe
in Him, I have placed
every ounce, of my faith.

My God, is in the midst,
though, my troubles soar
in Him I shall rise . . .
above their anxious roar.

For, He is my helper,
ever-present, ever-near
I call upon His name . . .
to calm my every fear.

My God, He is in the midst,
continually ~ He has proved
nothing that life brings me
shall cause me ~ to be moved!

Troubled Waters ~

Cross Pathway by Kevin Carden free photo #19122

I’ve been through troubled waters,
in the turbulence of my mind
I’ve been tossed and shaken
by violent winds of every kind.

I’ve been blown from here to there,
in this whirlwind called life . . .
I’ve been in the many storms
that have only caused me strife.

I’ve been through tumultuous times,
they were long as they were hard
I’ve been through mind twisters
that should have left me scarred.

I’ve been in deep dark waters,
with no sure way to get out
I’ve been in Satan’s cesspool
filled with fear and doubt.

I’ve been through troubled waters,
of every type and every kind . . .
but, Jesus has been the bridge
guarding my heart and mind!

Beauty For Ashes ~

Beauty for Ashes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Is your heart heavy,
are you in pain
do your troubles . . .
fall like acid rain?

Are you in mourning,
is your heart broken
do you feel as if . . .
time has been frozen?

Are you in despair,
haven’t a notion
are you just going . . .
through the motions?

Do you feel hopeless,
times hitting you hard
has anguish left you . . .
despondent and scarred.

Well don’t you give up,
don’t fall into a heap
joy will come after
all the tears you weep.

God’s making something,
beautiful out of you . . .
just give Him your cares
and all things He’ll make new!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 61:3
King James Version

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
to give unto them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

Life’s Burdens ~

isaiah-41-10-hand-of-god-god-says used with permission Darrell Creswell

When difficulties come at you,
and troubles are all around
when worried about life’s burdens
and their hurdles you can’t bound.

That’s when you need to take a grip,
hold on to God’s righteous hand
for, Jesus won’t let you fall
and in His strength you will stand.

When problems can’t be solved,
and you have nowhere else to turn
when others try to help you out
but your fears they can’t discern.

That’s when you need to take hold,
of God’s mighty right hand
for, Jesus won’t let you down
all your anxieties He’ll understand.

When life hands you a lemon,
but you don’t like lemonade . . .
when all those around you
fail to come to your aid.

That’s when you need to give up,
and rest in His loving hands
for, Jesus wants you to grasp
He has for you, His own plans!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10
King James Version

“Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

My Burden Bearer ~

cast-all-your-burdens-to-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah belka
I got me many worries,
an awful lot of cares
but on my soul
they don’t wear and tear.

Problems that come my way,
I simply toss aside
in my mind
I don’t let them reside.

When I’m in a predicament,
I lose not one single hair
on my heart
they don’t give me a scare.

Everything that bothers me,
I give to my Burden Bearer
for, Jesus promised me . . .
He’d be my trouble sharer!

Temporary Troubles ~

far-more-exceeding-and-eternal CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Though they may be temporary,
my troubles still do weigh
on my heart, they are heavy
on my soul, they do prey.

When God needs my attention,
I feel  like I’m on fire
but, He is only testing my faith
the depth of my desire.

So, He puts me in the furnace,
to refine me like gold
He uses the potter’s wheel
so His image He can mold.

He uses the word as a bridle,
to keep me on the straight path
He prunes and He trims
so I may never know His wrath.

He places me in dark valleys,
to see the world’s wickedness
He puts me in arid places
so I’ll thirst after righteousness.

Though they may be temporary,
my troubles still do weigh
but, I know they will bring me
into a glorious new day!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

King James Version

“For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,

Troubled Waters ~

peace-be-still CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Troubled waters lie ahead,
blinding wind and foam
but my heart is set to sail
right into my eternal home.

Every crashing wave,
tests my faith once more
but I will ride each one out
till I reach heaven’s shore.

The swells rise and fall,
causing me to be fearsome
but I will fight them off
till I enter God’s kingdom.

Each burst of angry wind,
seeks to take me down
but I’ll stand up to its rage
till I wear victory’s crown.

My troubles keep mounting,
but they’ll not take over me
for, Jesus will calm the waters
till together ~ we can be!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Mark 4:39
King James Version

“And he arose, and rebuked the wind,
and said unto the sea, Peace, be still.
And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.”

You Can Climb Your Mountain ~

Mountain BanffRon by Ron Manke free photo #5744

I’ve climbed that mountain,
I’ve been to the top
I saw the valley below
I saw how far the drop.

I made it anyway,
I was able to overcome
all the obstacles before me
I was able to overrun.

I didn’t do it alone,
God was with me all the way
He gave me  the power
for which I praise Him today.

You can climb your mountain,
you too can reach the peak
just take Jesus with you
so to be strong and not weak!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:10

“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities,

Our Burden Bearer ~

cast-all-your-burdens-to-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah belka

Lord, our burden bearer,
take from us our care
take away the heaviness
our tired hearts wear.

Take from us our weariness,
take from us our trouble
take away the listlessness
our tired souls battle.

Take from us our load,
take from us the heavy weight
take away the problems
on our tired minds that grate.

Take from us our pain,
take from us the deep ache
take away all the sorrow
and heal our heartbreak!

Crying out to God ~

pray-to-be-strong CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes, I cry out to God,
when being pushed to my limit
I pray asking Him to bring me
the full strength of His Spirit.

Whenever I am frighten,
when I’m knee-deep in my fears
I cry out for His light to shine
till the darkness disappears.

When my troubles hang on,
when they won’t let go of me
I cry out for His mighty power
so I can make Satan flee.

When illness comes my way,
when the pain keeps on growing
I cry out for His healing touch
in my life to keep flowing.

When sad and depressed,
when I become withdrawn
I cry out for His help
to keep on, pressing on.

Sometimes, crying out to God,
is so natural to do . . .
for when it becomes a habit
prayer becomes a part of you!

Till the Clouds Blow Away ~

above-the-clouds CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Yesterday it was cloudy,
my vision was not clear
and in the gloominess
I only saw what I fear.

Everything was blurred,
nothing made much sense
my troubles looked so huge
oh, so ever immense.

With clouds of doubt all around,
the unknown was looking dim
and I knew I just needed . . .
to continue to trust in Him.

For what I cannot discern,
when I am in the dark
Jesus will show me in His time
and His light He will impart.

Yesterday it was cloudy,
tomorrow may be a sunny day
but for now I’m trusting Jesus
till the clouds blow away!

Hold on tight,
hang on to that rope
trust and believe
there is still hope.

When you get to the end,
there’s only one place to go
just pour out your heart
let your troubles, God know.

Don’t stop believing,
He’s still the God who cares
eager to please
to answer your prayers.

So when you are ready,
to let go  ~ and let Him
grab onto His hand
your hope is there in!

Tears to Cheers ~

be-of-good-cheer CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When trials come at you,
from every source and way
when they sleep with you at night
and awaken with you each day.

When they come out of nowhere,
attacking you from all sides
laying their angry claws into you
shredding you apart inside.

That is when you need to go,
to the One who truly cares
to the One who promises . . .
that our burdens, He will bear.

Jesus, will take your troubles,
your worries, He will lessen
and the dilemma you are in
will become an everlasting lesson.

So, next time your trials,
have you wallowing in tears
give them all to Jesus . . .
and He’ll bring your heart cheer.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Until God Answers ~

godway used with permission IBible Verses

When you don’t know what to do,
and His answers haven’t come to you
when you’re feeling down and out
and you’re anxious and full of doubt.

That’s the time you need to look,
for every promise in the Good Book
you’ll find the remedy for your needs
when to His Word ~ your spirit heeds.

When your troubles take over you,
and worry surrounds all you do
when your down and feeling sad
and your fears just mount and add.

That’s the time you need to pray,
asking the Lord to lead the way
He’ll lead you down the right path
and His will for you, you will know.

 When waiting for answers to your prayers,
remember that God has all your cares
for He never will take His eyes off you
so trust in Him ~ no matter what you do!

A thousand anxieties,
more than a million prayers
for the relief from our pain
the weight of our cares.

A thousand worries,
too many fears to number
so many disturbing thoughts
robbing us of our  slumber.

A thousand burdens,
some too heavy to bear
a multitude of troubles
leave their wear and tear.

A thousand concerns,
a million more to come
but with faith in Jesus
we shall overcome!

Bundle Up Your Burdens ~

Bundle Up Your Burdens ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

 The pressures of life,
weigh heavy on the soul
when we don’t let God . . .
have complete control.

His timing is perfect,
His ways always pure
and for our anxiety
He has the only cure.

We need to draw on,
the power of His might
we need to believe
He’ll lead with His light.

For in His saving light,
there’s a peace that eases
when we come to realize
He does what He so pleases.

So bundle up your burdens,
place them in Gods hands
then find rest in knowing . . .
all is well with His plans!

All Because ~

Take Heart used with permission IBible Verses

In this life, there will be troubles,
trials and tribulations too
in this world, we will be hated
all because ~ Lord, we love You.

In this life, there will be heartache,
seasons of tears, reasons to grieve
in this world, we will be detested
all because ~ in You we believe.

In this life, there will be hardships,
difficulties, struggles and defeat
in this world, we will be disliked
all because ~ You make us complete.

In this life, we will have problems,
battles, fights with the impossible
in this world, we will not be liked
all because ~ in You all is possible.

In this life, things won’t be easy,
but as Christians we’ll make it through
in this world, we’ll not have favor
all because ~ Lord, we trust in You !
