Today I’ll Sing ~

Today I will sing,
no matter what comes . . .
the strings of my heart
I’m still going to strum.

If there are blue skies,
I will kick up my heels
if there be clouds
my joy they wont steal.

Today I am singing,
hallelujah and hooray
regardless of whatever
may come my way.

If there be a storm,
I’ll sing over its roar
if there be calm waters
I will sing louder more.

Lord, today I will sing,
nothing can stop me . . .
I will sing of the love
that I have for Thee!

“My heart is fixed,
O God, my heart is fixed:
I will sing and give praise.”

The Seeds Your Are Sowing ~

Some scatter seeds of anxiety,
and harvest nothing but fear
some collect in their memory
the reason for all their tears.

Some spread seeds of distrust,
and collect grains of doubt
some gather up their losses
shutting all their blessings out.

Some cast seeds of excess,
and reap in what they sow
some collect worldly pleasures
thinking God will never know.

Some throw seeds of greed,
and collect envy and pride
some lose their hope and faith
when their will with God’s collide.

Some scatter seeds of doubt,
and harvest nothing but fear
but those who mock not God
sow the seeds of repentant tears!

The Mind of Jesus ~

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
to truly love one and all . . .
to forgive those who stumble
and lift up the ones who fall.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d see others deepest need
I’d minister to their lost souls
and to a faith in Him I’d lead.

Oh, to have the life of Christ,
to see all in His saving light
to heal the contrite heart
and give to all eternal sight.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d take His Word across the land
I’d lead the lost to His Kingdom
deliver the unsaved into His hand.

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
beating deep inside me . . .
would be to  think just like Jesus
oh, how wonderful that would be!

Storms Are Just A Part of Life ~

Storms are a part of life,
it’s just the way it goes . . .
and often we get tossed
by the wind as it blows.

We need to remain calm,
so we’re not blown about
otherwise we’ll be thrown
into the sea of doubt.

Storms can sneak up on us,
leaving us blind-sided
and often our trust in God
becomes misguided.

We need to remain faithful,
on Jesus keep our eyes
lest through the storm
we’ll fall for satan’s lies.

Storms are part of life,
it’s just the way it goes . . .
but we know God controls
just where the wind blows!

~~~~~~

Luke 8:24-25

“And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish.
Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water:
and they ceased, and there was a calm.

And he said unto them,
Where is your faith?
And they being afraid wondered,
saying one to another,
What manner of man is this!
for he commandeth even the
winds and water, and they obey him.”

Keep Us Close Lord ~

Lord, keep us close to You,

we ask as we pray.

Remind us of Your hope,
how it will not pass away
build up our confidence
to help us not to stray.

Fill us with Your peace,
quiet our troubles inside
take away the barriers
so with You we may abide.

Whisper in our ears,
how much for us You care
tell us a over and over
You will always be there.

Lord, keep our hearts,
each and every day . . .
so on the right path
by Your side we’ll stay!

On My ROCKing Chair ~

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting peacefully
rocking to and fro
oh, so ever calmly.

Though, I have worries,
I haven’t me a care
for while I am rocking
God listens to my prayer.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting comfortably
rocking back and forth
oh, so ever enjoyably.

Though, I have troubles,
I’m rocking all the same
for I’m so confident
as I call upon His name.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting quietly
rocking up and down
oh, so ever serenely.

Though, I have problems,
I’m gonna keep rocking
for God’s got me an answer
and soon He’ll be talking.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m trusting and believing
for I know His response . . .
soon I’ll be receiving!

All Things Are Possible With God ~

All things are possible,
when in God you trust

All things are a blessing,
when God you obey
all things come together
when to Him you pray.

All things are achievable,
when in God you rely
all things are workable
when faith you apply.

All things are attainable,
when God is your hope
all things are brighter
when He helps you to cope.

All things work together,
when your life to Jesus you give
all things are beautiful . . .
when He’s the reason you live!

Be Still Until ~

When waiting on the Lord,
to answer your prayer . . .
don’t become discouraged
instead rest in His care.

When seeking His response,
for your wants and needs
don’t become depressed
be at peace til He leads.

When God is quiet,
but you heart isn’t so
don’t become worried
instead let His mercy flow.

When looking for a word,
to help show the way
don’t become disheartened
but, let joy fill your day.

When waiting on the Lord,
be still until . . . .
He shows to you
what is His perfect will!

A Time To Let God ~

A time for patience,
and for some rest
a time to let God do . . .
what He knows is best.

A time for His Spirit,
to lead from above
a time to linger . . .
and abide in His love.

A time for endurance,
to run the good race
a time to stop running
and abound in His grace.

A time for calmness,
when composure is gone
a time to discover
how to be closer drawn.

A time to be quiet,
to sit and be still
a time to actively seek
what is God’s perfect will.

A time for silence,
of both mind and heart
a time for God only . . .
nothing keeping us apart.

A time to lie down,
in pastures green
a time to be protected
under His almighty wing.

A time to know and believe,
He’ll never leave or forsake
a time for God . . .
we all need to make!

Be Still My Heart ~

Be Still ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be still, my soul, be at peace,
let not thy worries overcome
be still, and know He is your God
and will  your heart-strings strum.

Be still, my heart and let go,
let surrender be thy sweet release
be still, and know God’s saving power
to eternity, can never fail or cease.

Be still, my mind and surrender all,
let thy weakness take you to your knees
be still, and know of God’s sufficiency
will and can surpass all thy needs.

Be still, my spirit admit thy defeat,
let thyself dwell on things from above
be still, and know He is in control
and be strengthened by and in His love.

Be still, my soul be at peace,
let Him complete in thee His perfect will
be still, and know He is your God
and will our heart-strings still!

If The Lord’s Our Shepherd ~

If the Lord is our Shepherd,
why then do we still want?
If He supplies all our needs,
why do our lacks still taunt?

If besides still waters He leads,
why then do we still fear?
If He fills us with quietness,
why don’t we hold Him near?

If green pastures bring peace,
why then are we still stressed?
If He leaves us not lacking,
why don’t we feel blessed?

If He restores our souls,
why then do we still doubt?
If He satisfies our deep thirst,
why is their still a drought?

If in righteousness He guides,
why then do we still wander?
If the Lord is truly our Shepherd,
we needn’t these things ponder!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down

of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Don’t Worry Trust God Instead~

Don’t worry about tomorrow,
give no thought to what’s ahead
for, Jesus wants you to trust Him . . .
not to live in fear and dread.

Don’t lament about what’s next,
think not about what may come
for, Jesus doesn’t want your mind . . .
in fretfulness to succumb.

Don’t agonize about the future,
think not of where it will lead
for, Jesus wants you to know . . .
faith in Him is all you need.

Don’t stress about the unknown,
give no thought with what will be
for, Jesus wants you to believe . . .
in Him for what you cannot see.

Don’t worry about tomorrow,
give no thought to what you hear
for, Jesus doesn’t want your thoughts . . .
to be controlled by dread or fear!

Matthew 6:25-26

“Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought for your life,

Behold the fowls of the air:
for they sow not,

neither do they reap,
nor gather into barns;

yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them.

better than they?”

Eternal Peace ~

We live in pressurized world,
we’re always under stress
but, we who rely on God
onward strain and press.

We’re hassled on every side,
pushed around and shoved
but, we who hope in Jesus
know how much we are loved.

We feel the weight of the world,
come crashing down on us
but, those of us who believe
always in God put their trust.

We’re fatigued over hearing,
daily all the horrific news
but, we who have faith in Jesus
joy over fear we will choose.

We live in a pressurized world,
the stress never seems to cease
but, we who trust in the Lord
will have eternal peace!

to give me faith over fear!

It’s All About God’s Grace ~

It’s all about God’s grace,
not about what you do
it’s all about Jesus . . .
and what He did for you.

For grace is forgiving,
it frees you from your sin
it’s not something earned
or anything you can win.

It’s all about God’s grace,
His mercy and favor . . .
it’s all about having faith
in Christ, Jesus your Savior.

For grace is liberating,
there is no cost to you
Jesus paid the full price
there’s nothing left to do.

It’s all about God’s grace,
the confession of sin
it’s all about repentance
to be cleansed from within.

For grace will set you free,
from under satan’s claws
all you need is faith . . . .
for grace erased the laws.

It’s all about grace,
liberating and freeing
it is a gift from God . . .
well worth your receiving!

Put On the New Man ~

Lord, You offered me this new man,
and asked me to put him on . . .
You challenged me to grow in him
and be willing to be Spirit drawn.

You told me my life was worthless,
and my heart was as dry as dust
how my mind was full of darkness
overflowing with greed and lust.

You asked me to give to You,
the worldly joys in my possession
You told me in return for them
You’d forgive me my transgression.

You made me open up my eyes,
to the useless things I do
showing me they are fruitless
when not being done for You.

You revealed to me my pain,
was from the emptiness inside
and why this old and new man . . .
can’t live happily side by side.

Lord, You asked me to make a choice,
a heart dark for one full of light . . .
so I chose to put on the new man
and to give the old one a holy fight!

the Prince of Peace comes
to bridge the empty span.

Wonderful is His name,
Counselor to the meek
the Son was born of flesh
to give power to the weak.

Our everlasting Father,
knows our fallen state
so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born
sing ~ Praises to His Glory ~
on this Christmas morn!

Isaiah 9:6

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is
given: and the government shall be upon his
shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The
everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Still The Wise Seek Him ~

Still the wise seek Him,
they look to the Morning Star
they follow where He may lead
no matter how near or far.

They come to praise Him,
to worship and to adore
the wise still seek will Him
as the ones did from before.

The wise still offer Him,
gifts from their hearts
their faith, trust and hope
on Him they impart.

They hunger and thirst,
after His righteousness
they seek the Life and Way
with wholeheartedness.

Still the wise seek Him,
this Babe, the Child, their Savior
for they know He is God’s gift . . .
of His love, mercy and favor!

Matthew 2:9-10

“When they had heard
the king, they departed; and,

lo, the star, which they saw
in the east, went before them,

till it came and stood
over where the young child was.

When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding
great joy.”
