Seasons Of Fainting ~

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of fainting . . .
when worldly catastrophes
leave us anxiously panting.

For all around us we see,
disorder of every kind
messing with the peace
in our heart and mind.

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of weariness . . .
when earthly calamities
fill us with restlessness.

For every where we turn,
we see the destruction
that evilness brings
when under its seduction.

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of trepidation . . .
but we who believe in Jesus
are free of apprehension!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 24:10

If thou faint in the day
of adversity,
thy strength is small.

John 16:33

These things I have spoken
unto you, that in me ye might
have peace. In the world ye
shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

Fortitude ~

Sometimes my eagle wings,
get fatigued and weary . . .
especially when this world
seems so grim and dreary.

But I know I will not faint,
nor give up the flight
as long as God remains
my strength and guiding light.

Sometimes my eagles wings,
get tattered and ripped
especially when my freedoms
from me are being stripped.

But I’m determined to fly,
against the resistance
for I know to endure I need
the wings of persistence.

Daily my eagles wings,
need to be renewed . . .
so I pray to the Lord
give me the fortitude!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run, and
not be weary; and they shall walk,
and not faint.

Matthew 24:13

But he that shall endure
unto the end, the same
shall be saved.

Once Again Reborn ~

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:23

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth
for ever.”

Waiting ~

Lord, You have given me,
these mighty eagles wings
said they’d give me strength
in the problems life brings.

You said for me to wait,
for Your Son to return
until such time to give
You all of my concern.

You said there would be,
no weariness or fatigue
to wait until the day
the crown of life I’ll receive.

You said I would walk,
without ever fainting
to focus on the future hope
You have for me awaiting.

Lord, You have given me,
these powerful eagle wings
and so I patiently wait . . .
for the newness of all things!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40.31

“But they that wait
upon the Lord shall
renew their strength;
they shall mount up
with wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

Sticky Note From God 05.30.17


Life’s Demands ~

Lord, sometimes I get exhausted,
with all of life’s demands
sometimes I get so tired
following everyone’s commands.

For, I would much rather,
just spend time alone with You
with my Bible and commentary
the only two things in view.

Lord, sometimes I get fatigued,
just thinking of all I’ve to do
sometimes I am overwhelmed
meeting time lines, coming due.

For, I would so much rather,
just sit and listen to . . .
praise and worship songs
about my love for You.

Lord, sometimes I get weary,
thinking about the day ahead
for, I would so much rather  . . .
just stay praying to You in bed!

~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 31:25

” For I have satiated
the weary soul,
and I have replenished
every sorrowful soul.”

God Never Gets Weary ~

Are you feeling fatigued,
by your weariness
are you exhausted
and feeling listless?

Then wait on the Lord,
your energy He’ll renew
for He never gets tired
of strengthening you.

Do you need recharging,
a shot of endurance
do you need fortitude
some extra assurance?

Then wait on the Lord,
faint He does not
He never gets worn-out
when His power is sought

Are you growing weary,
is your faith getting slack?
Then wait on the Lord . . .
for the strength you lack!

~~~~~

Isaiah 40:30-31

“Even the youths shall faint
and be weary, and the young
men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon
the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with
wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

Guarding Your Heart and Mind ~

Whatever has you sleepless,
whatever keeps you awake
whatever makes you feel
your heart’s about to break.

Give it all to Jesus,
in your thankful prayer
and He will lift you from
your grief and despair.

Whatever is your worry,
whatever may be your care
whatever is that burden
that you must daily bear.

Give them all to Jesus,
let Him have everything
then your soul will find
rest that is everlasting.

Whatever has you weary,
whatever causes you stress
whatever makes you feel
hopeless and depress.

Give it all to Jesus,
let Him guard your mind
then your heart He will still
and His peace you will find.

Whatever has you anxious,
take it to Jesus in prayer
then release all your fears
and leave them in His care!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests
be made known unto God.

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

At Your Feet ~

at-your-feet-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, some days I get so tired,
I feel as if I’m beat
and so all my weariness
I place right at Your feet.

As soon as I release,
my troubles into Your care
I no longer feel as if . . .
their mine alone to bear.

When my days are hard,
and my nights are long
its You whom I count on
to help me to be strong.

As soon as I turn over,
all of my worries to You
there is not a single thing
I feel we cannot do.

When I look for comfort,
to ease my weary mind
Lord, I know at Your feet
peace and rest I will find!

~~~~~~

Matthew 11:28

“Come unto me,
all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.”

You’ve Got A Friend ~

You Got A Friend in Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When feeling heavy-laden,
when your trouble’s abound
this one thing is for sure . . .
there’s always a Friend around.

When burdened with a load,
when worry takes a major toll
this one thing is for sure . . .
a Friend is waiting to console.

When feeling weak and puny,
when weariness makes you blue
this one thing is for sure . . .
you’ve got a Friend next to you.

When life has got you down,
when no one seems to care
this one thing is for sure . . .
there’s a Friend who is aware.

When feeling heavy-laden,
when there seems to be no end
this one thing is for sure . . .
in Jesus, you have a True Friend!

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

John 15:15

“Henceforth I call you not servants;
for the servant knoweth not what his
lord doeth: but I have called you friends;
for all things that I have heard of my Father
I have made known unto you.”

Our Worldly Home ~

Going Home by Doug Shelton free photo from CreationSwap

In this, our worldly home,
there is misery and pain
we toil and we labor . . .
but, it’s all done in vain.

We fight off the weariness,
from being disillusioned
we try not to faint under
the constant confusion.

All of our grueling work,
never seems to pay off
at times at our own selves
we can’t help but to scoff.

We still have hunger pangs,
our thirst is never satisfied
all our disappointments
are eternally magnified.

We feel the throb of sorrow,
we know the sting of grief
from sickness and death
we know there’s no relief.

In this, our worldly home,
the curse of sin always reigns
but, in our heavenly home . . .
nothing will cause us any pain!

“And there shall be no more curse:”

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!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:22
King James Version

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
