God, My Strength ~

God, my Strength,
my Power, my Might
You make me fit . . .
for the battles I fight.

Through all the storms,
that have come my way
You give me the courage
to face them each day.

God, my Muscle,
my Vitality, my Vigor
You inspire me to be
for You a crown winner.

When spiritual battles,
I have to daily face
You give me resilience
to run the faithful race.

God, my Strength,
my Rock, my Song
thought I am weak . . .
You make me strong!

Joshua 1:9

Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou
dismayed: for the Lord thy God
is with thee whithersoever
thou goest.

2 Corinthians 12:9

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.

Do You Feel Like A Babe ~

Do you feel like a babe,
do you feel incomplete
does your spiritual life
seem to be bittersweet?

Well you need not be,
too worried or concerned
for deeper faith comes . . .
through lessons learned.

Does your faith feel feeble,
does it seem so weak
do you trip and stumble
over being too meek?

Well you’re not alone,
others felt this way too
and as your faith grows
it too will humble you.

Do you have lots of doubt,
do you feel stunted
does your future hope
feel as if it’s been gutted?

Well continue to trust,
and in Jesus to believe . . .
for the more you hope
the more faith you’ll receive!

1 Corinthians 3:1

“And I, brethren,
could not speak unto you
as unto spiritual,
but as unto carnal,
even as unto babes in Christ.”

I Trust Thee Lord ~

i-will-trust-thee-christitan-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Forever Lord,
I will trust Thee
no matter what
happens to me.

I will trust Thee,
when its stormy
I will trust Thee
when its balmy.

I will trust Thee,
when its serene
I will trust Thee
for the unseen.

I will trust Thee,
when its peaceful
I will trust Thee
when facing evil.

I will trust Thee,
when I’m weak
I will trust Thee
when all is bleak.

I will trust Thee,
with my life
I will trust Thee
through the strife

I will trust Thee,
like no other
I will trust Thee
more than my brother.

I will trust Thee,
when under attack
I will trust Thee
for all I lack.

I will Trust Thee,
when I’m ill
I will trust Thee
to be still.

Forever Lord,
I will trust Thee
for Your strength
lives in me!

“Trust ye
in the Lord for ever:

is everlasting strength:”

Look Into My Heart ~

Look Into My Heart Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Heavenly Father,
look into my heart
peel back whatever
is keeping us apart.

Reveal the layers,
of my selfish pride
remove any vanity
still living inside.

Heavenly Father,
pare from my soul
all that’s keeping You
from having control.

Take away anything,
holding me back
where I am weak
take up the slack.

Heavenly Father,
unveil all keeping me
from truly knowing
the fullness of Thee!

~~~~~~

Psalm 131:1

“Lord, my heart is not haughty,
nor mine eyes lofty: neither
do I exercise myself in great
matters, or in things too
high for me.”

Why My Heart Sings ~

My heart shall not tremble,
though I have my fear . . .
my heart shall not shake
for my God, is always near.

My spirit calls on His name,
searches for His face
my spirit takes its cover
in the arms of grace.

My soul shall find rest,
as it learns how to soar
my soul shall be blessed
with His mercy evermore.

I shall trust in the Lord,
His strength I will seek
I shall trust in His power
to help when I’m weak.

To eternity I will abide,
under His mighty wings
forever with Him I’ll dwell
tis . . why my heart sings!

Psalm 91:1
King James Version

“He that dwelleth
in the secret place of the

most High shall abide
under the shadow of the Almighty.

Dry Seasons ~

Dry seasons . . .
times of spiritual drought
times of sobering doubt

times God’s voice we can’t hear
times of significant fear

times of self-inflected pain
times with no spiritual gain

times of weakness not of strength
times we keep God at arm’s length

times of desperation and lack
times we turn on God our back

times to reflect from within
times to confess known sin

times that we learn and grow
times for God’s mercy to show

times to meditate and pray
times to hear what He’s to say

Dry seasons . . .
times of spiritual growth
times made by God ~ for you both!

Psalm 107:9
King James Version

“For he satisfieth
the longing soul,

and filleth
the hungry soul
with goodness.”

Be Still ~

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
where His glory surpasses 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 . . . your heart-strings . . . still.

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:10
King James Version

“Be still,and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”

Change Me Lord ~

Change Me Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Change me Lord,
I know that I should be . . .
a different kind of person
than the one that I call me.

Change me Lord,
there’s so much You can do
take this old life of mine
and make me someone new.

Change me Lord,
from the inside out . . .
to trust in only You
without fear or doubt.

Change me Lord,
make my heart grow true
help me to see the sin
in the things I say and do.

Change me Lord,
show me what I do wrong
take away my weakness
make me someone strong.

Change me Lord,
till I see You’re all I need
to live my life just like You
in my every act and deed.

Matthew 9:16

“No man putteth a piece of new cloth

put in to fill it up taketh from the garment,
and the rent is made worse.”
