God Will Stop At Nothing ~

God will use everything,
to draw us to Him nearer
He’ll do anything
to make His image clearer.

He will use our pain,
to take us that much deeper
He’ll use our sorrow
to make us a true believer.

God will use our guilt,
to make us more grateful
He will use our shame
to make us forever thankful.

He’ll use our weaknesses,
to make us even stronger
He will take our frailties
to make our faith tougher.

God will use anything,
to bring His image out in us
He will stop at nothing . . .
until He has all of our trust!

Colossians 3:10

“And have put on the new man,
which is renewed in knowledge
after the image of him that
created him:”

Daily Prayers ~

I pray each day,
for these things
and for the peace
that they’ll  bring.

For my weaknesses,
to be strong
lest I stop singing
salvation’s song.

For my daily needs,
to be met
lest God’s goodness
I forget.

For my fears,
to be set free
lest His mercy
I’ll fail to see.

For my worries,
alone not to bear
lest onto Jesus
I’ll cast not my care.

For my doubt,
to turn to trust
lest to God’s ways
I’ll not adjust.

Each new day,
before I start
I give to God
prayers on my heart!

whatsoever ye shall ask

believing,
ye shall receive.”

My Soul Restored ~

My soul God restores,
whenever I stray
He leads me straight back
onto the narrow way.

He tells me where,
I have gone wrong
shows me the places
I do not belong.

My soul God restores
with His mercy and grace
for, His arms long to keep me
in His loving embrace.

He knows I’m weak,
He knows I’m frail
He knows sin in my life
must not ever prevail.

My soul God restores,
He brings it to repentance
for, His love for me . . .
is fierce and relentless!

When I am Strong ~

When I am Stong ~ CHRISTian Poetry by deborah ann

Lord, when I’m strong,
my faith is weak
and Your will
I do not seek.

For, on my own,
I think I can do it
and I make no time
to wait and sit.

I believe I know,
what I’m to do
so I rush off Lord
without You.

But, when I am weak,
my faith is strong
and I seek Your face
all day long.

For, when I admit,
alone, I can’t do it
it’s when I’m lead
by Your Spirit!

~~~~~

“For when I am weak,
then am I strong.”

God Knows ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahnn ~ God Knows Everything -IBible Verses

Lord, you know our worries,
the cause of our fear
You know when to You
we are far or near.

You know our needs,
our have’s and have not’s
You know our desires
our deepest thoughts.

You know our goings,
all the in’s and out’s
You know when in You
we have our doubts.

You know our weakness,
our strength, You’re aware
You know when to You
we give our every care.

Lord, You know our inner’s,
our outer parts too . . .
You know if we believe
and truly trust in You!

My Strength ~

Be Strong Trust God by Megan Watson fre photo #14670

Lord, my strength isn’t in my bones,
for they are too weak and frail
my strength is in the knowledge
Your Spirit in me will never fail.

My strength does not come,
from anything that I can do
for, I have very little power
if it does not come from You.

My strength cannot be found,
by going to the gym or spa
my strength is when I exercise
to You, my holy awe.

My strength is thin and feeble,
and sometimes I cannot stand
but, when I draw close to You
I feel the power of Your hand.

Lord, my strength doesn’t measure up,
when compared to Your own . . .
my burdens would be too heavy
if I had to carry them alone!

King James Version

” I can do all this through him who gives me
strength.”

His Little Sparrow ~

His Little Sparrow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Oh My little sparrow,
I have given you wings to fly
I’ve watched as you learned
to make your way across the sky.

There have been many storms,
you have met along the way
I’ve seen you rise above some
others caused your wings to fray.

I’ve seen you soar like an eagle,
as you waited patiently for Me
I’ve seen you spiral downward
into the rough and stormy sea.

I’ve seen you climb new heights,
as you trusted Me in your flight
I’ve seen you start to plummet
when I wasn’t kept in your sight.

I’ve seen you go through the gales,
when My name you called upon
I’ve seen when on your own
you were too weak to continue on.

I’ve been with you the whole time,
I was the gust behind the wind
and sometimes your wings . . .
I have had to clip and trim.

Oh, my little sparrow,
I have given you wings to fly
through the storms of life
so on Me you’d learn to rely!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 10:29

“Are not two sparrows
sold for a farthing? and

one of them shall
not fall on the ground

without your Father.”

My Strength Comes From God ~

My Strength Comes From ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, my strength isn’t in my bones,
for they are too weak and frail
my strength is in the knowledge
Your Spirit in me will never fail.

My strength does not come,

for, I have very little power
if it does not come from You.

My strength cannot be found,
by going to the gym or spa
my strength is when I exercise
to You, my holy awe.

My strength is thin and feeble,
and sometimes I cannot stand
but, when I draw close to You
I feel the power of Your hand.

Lord, my strength doesn’t measure up,
when compared to Your own . . .
my burdens would be too heavy
if I had to carry them alone!
