Merge ~

Lord, show me Your will,
keep me on the right course
teach me to trust You
as my navigation source.

Lead me in Your truth,
guide me all my days
give me Your direction
in all of my ways.

Instruct me to wait,
until Your ready for me
grant me Thy patience
till it’s Your will I see.

Train me to follow,
after Your every deed
offer me Your wisdom
to see You’re all I need.

Enlighten my soul,
to Your every urge . . .
keep me in Your sight
until our paths merge!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:4-5

“Shew me thy ways,
O Lord; teach me thy paths.

Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
for thou art the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day.”

Captive Thoughts ~

Capture my thoughts Lord,
gird me in Thy truth
let me follow Thy Word
as in the days of my youth.

With childlike faith,
take custody of my mind
keep me close to Thee
so Thy ways I can find.

Control and restrain me,
release not me from Thy hold
may my heart for Thee
turn not luke-warm or cold.

Let me not be disillusioned,
by the wisdom of man
seize upon my belief
show me Thy perfect plan.

Capture my thoughts Lord,
in my mind be in  control
I give to Thee my life . . .
let not man conquer my soul!

The Spirit of God ~

Spirit of God,
full of truth and love
brings His peace
on wings of a dove.

Sent from heaven,
as our Comforter
in times of need
our mighty Helper.

Spirit of God,
full of knowledge
to understanding
there’s no shortage.

Wisdom You bring,
to all who desire
strength You give
to all who inquire.

Spirit of God,
Jesus’ promise to us
may in You we put
all of our trust!

~~~~~~~

John 14:26

But the Comforter,
which is the Holy Ghost,
whom the Father will send
in my name, he shall teach
you all things, and bring
all things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you.

Perfect In God’s Sight ~

Lord, help me to be,
in Your sight perfect
on Your holiness
may I daily reflect.

Let me not be blind,
to that which I know
keeping Your wisdom
from in me to flow.

Lord, help me to live,
a life to You pleasing
let my heart reflect
one in Your keeping.

Let me not be deaf,
to Your imploring
to where hidden flaws
I am still storing.

Lord, help me to be,
in Your sight faultless
help me to be  . . .
like Jesus flawless!

Sticky Note to God ~10.08.19~


Sandpaper Christians ~

Sandpaper Christians,
grate on your nerves . . .
their abrasive thoughts
they don’t conserve.

Raspy and rough,
full of harshness
need God to replace
their heart of hardness.

Sandpaper Christians,
rub the wrong way
thinking not before
the words they say.

Like an emery board,
that’s lost its grit
forget they are filled
with the Holy Spirit.

Sandpaper Christians,
gruff and so bold
need to learn just how
their peace to hold.

Outspoken and snarly,
their words are brutal
need to seek how to make
their lips more fruitful.

Sandpaper Christians,
on the nerves grate . . .
need God’s wisdom
to set them straight!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 11:12

He that is void of wisdom
despiseth his neighbour:
but a man of understanding
holdeth his peace.

Lord, Let Your Light Saturate My Soul ~

Lord, let Your Light,
saturate my soul
let over my body
it take control.

Let it bring me,
truth and wisdom
let it beam into me
just like a prism.

Lord, let Your Light,
shine down on me
let it brighten my way
so Your plans I may see.

Let it bring me,
even closer to You
let it sear my heart
all the way through.

Lord, let Your Light,
shine, beam and sear
so that to you Lord
I’ll always be near!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God in the face
of Jesus Christ.

The Heart of My Soul ~

Lord help me to keep,
on my heart a watchful eye
so that it may not for You
shrivel up and dry.

Let me be meticulous,
as to what I let into it
so it is always opened
to the wisdom of Your spirit.

Lord, help me to guard,
the heart of my soul
so that it’ll always be
in Your righteous control.

Let me be scrupulous,
as to what I hold dear
so that it may be filled
with holy awe and fear.

Lord, help me to keep,
my heart to Your keeping
so that my life will be . . .
to You always pleasing!

Sticky Note From God ~05.24.18~


God Has My Back ~

I have personal needs,
individual wants I lack
but, God always has
my spiritual back.

I trust Him to provide,
for me every day
the patience to keep me
on the narrow way.

I know He will grant,
me with His grace
to meet head on
the trials I face.

I have faith knowing,
He will give me power
to overcome temptation
my every waking hour.

I have many needs,
personal wants I lack
but, I always get wisdom
whenever God I ask!

~~~~~

James 1:4-5

“But let patience have
her perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and entire,
wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God, that giveth
to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him..”

Seeking What’s Wise ~

christmas-934181_640

Lord, may I be a seeker,
a follower of Your light
may I have the wisdom
like the Magi’s had that night.

May I travel the distance,
regardless of how far
may I be willing to go
to wherever You are.

May I have the resolve,
to follow where You lead
may I see to Your will
I must be willing to heed.

May I have the tenacity,
not to ever quit
may I be to Your ways
determined to submit.

May I have the fortitude,
to journey into what’s wise
may I  have the stamina
so Your path I’ll recognize.

Lord, may I always seek You,
like the Magi’s did that night
may I have the courage . . .
to follow after wisdom’s light!

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 12.18.15 ~


God’s Always Up to Something ~

God's Up to Something ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

God works in ways,
I don’t always understand
but His plans for my life
He’s giving to me firsthand.

He’s always up to something,
on this, I can be sure . . .
yet when I need a remedy
He will have for me a cure.

No matter what He’s doing,
I know it’s for my best . . .
for when I need  a breather
He provides a place to rest.

When I have questions,
there’s purpose in His advice
if I really heed and listen  . . .
I don’t have to ask Him twice.

God works in ways,
I cannot always see . . .
for He is always working
something good inside of me!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“And we know that all things

that love God, to them who are

Seeking God’s Counsel ~

Seeking God's Counsel ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I need counsel,
when guidance I seek
I turn to God’s Word
then I let it speak.

For its full of wisdom,
so divinely conveyed
and I know it is God
who I need to obey.

His Word won’t cause,
me to go astray
for it reveals to me
the Life and the Way.

I trust where it leads,
I’m sure it will show
the righteous path
God wants me to go.

God’s Word is my compass,
its full of His direction
pointing me to my final
glorious destination!

I pray the Lord will be with you,
while this, you are going through
I pray you will not leave His side

I pray the Lord will stand with you,
give you wisdom, in what to do
I pray He’ll help to keep you still
as you seek out, His perfect will.

I pray the Lord will be your helper,
In Him, you’ll find your comforter
I pray He will show you His plans

Amazed ~

Amazed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I fear God for one reason,
and it’s not that I’m afraid
I fear His mighty power . . .
for, it leaves me amazed.

I stare in astonishment,
as I view the works of His hand
how all has come together
at His direction and command.

I worship Him and marvel,
as I gaze out into space
I stand in awesome wonder
of His mercy and His grace.

I tremble and I shake,
my understanding fails me
it’s hard to comprehend
all that I can and cannot see.

I fear God for one reason,
but,  it’s not that I am fearful
I fear Him because I know . . .
He’s absolute and oh so powerful!

~~~~~~~~

“Let all the earth fear the Lord:
let all the inhabitants of the world

God Is Wiser ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~God is Wiser - IBible Verse

I asked God for strength,
but, He made me weak
so that to His will . . .
I would daily seek.

I asked God for health,
but, He made me queasy
so that I would see . . .
the faithful race wasn’t easy.

I asked God for riches,
but, He made me poor
so that I would hear  . . .
Jesus’ knock on the door.

I asked God for happiness.
but, He made me sorrowful
so that for my sins . . .
I’d repent and be mournful.

I asked God why,
I didn’t get my heart’s desire
He told me it was because . . .
I AM so much wiser!

~~~~~~~~

“Because the foolishness of God
is wiser than men;
and the weakness of God

My Confidence ~ My Hope

hope-is-in-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My confidence is in the Lord,
for I know He cares for me
I place my hope in Him
not in the things, I can see.

He protects and shelters me,
in His goodness with His grace
with Him any problem
I’m able to confidently face.

I know I can count on Him,
for wisdom and for some rest
for He knows what I need
has for me only the best.

I am so very happy,
for in the Lord I have peace
His compassion never fails me
my hope in Him shall not cease!
