My Inspiration ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Inspiration by God ~ IBible Verses

Lord, when I study the Word,
I’m filled with inspiration
for it opens up to me . . .
thought for contemplation.

I see that You desire,
for me, to seek Your will
I can see my objective
is learning to be still.

I see You have a purpose,
for me, so many plans
I see that I must leave
everything in Your hands.

I see that You aim,
to renew me each day
I see that I must seek
the truth, light and way.

I see that You endeavor,
for me, to finish the race
I see that I need to grow
daily in Your love and grace!

2 Timothy 3:16-17

” All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of God may be perfect,
thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

The Rest of My Days ~

I love The Lord used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Lord, Your grace I will carry,

Perfect Peace ~

keep-in-peaceCHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to know the peace of God,
to experience its perfect calm
to use His every Word
as our soothing, healing balm.

Then we’d have tranquility,
through the storms of life
we’d soar above the turbulence
riding out the winds of strife.

Oh, to have the serenity of God,
flowing from our weary hearts
to have minds engulfed in stillness
which only His Spirit can impart.

Then we’d have the faith,
to trust God in all things
and the discipline to know
the perfect peace He brings!

whose mind is stayed on thee:

I Will Wait ~

I Will Wait ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I will wait on You Lord,
I will wait and be still . . .
I will wait for Your voice
to guide and to lead
I will wait for Your Spirit
before I proceed.

I will wait on You Lord,
I will wait and be still  . . .
I will wait on Your word
to give me the power
I will wait on Your timing
no matter the hour.

I will wait on You Lord,
I will wait and be still . . .
I will wait for Your peace
to put the calm in my soul
I will wait on Your grace
to stay in control.

I will wait on You Lord,
I will wait and be still . . .
I will wait for Your blessings
before I get up and go
I will patiently wait
until You let me know.

I will wait on You Lord,
I will wait and be still . . .
I promise I can
I promise I will
but I need Your strength
to wait and be still!

What Lies Ahead ~

No Eye Has Seen used with permission Doorpost Verses on Face book
I do not know,
what lies ahead
but this I do know
I won’t be mislead.

Though I cannot see,
with my own eyes
I know God’s Word
will make me wise.

God has shown me,
salvation’s truest light
as I read my Bible
I sense His holy might.

Though I have ears,
I can’t hear Him speak
but I heed none less
when His will I seek.

I’ve taken note,
of His divine revelation
and made the Gospels
my true foundation.

I don’t know what God,
has out there for me
but I know if I wait
His glory I will see!

that waiteth for him.”

God’s Word Garden ~

Spend Time in The Bible Used with permission IBible VErses

Every day is a smorgasbord,
a buffet of renewed pardon
a fresh supply of God’s grace
found in His Word garden.

My appetites are gratified,
from each verse that I pick
they bring me such comfort
whether feeling well or sick.

I hunger after what is holy,
to fill me up for the day
and in the Word I can find
comfort throughout the day.

I crave the righteousness,
reading the Word will bring
it satisfied my hunger pangs
it’s like dining with the King.

It’s seems I’m always hungry,
I’m constantly in the Word
but my desire to know Jesus
is continuously being stirred.

I need a steady, stable filling,
of God’s mercy and His love
it’s like manna from heaven
coming down from above.

One day I’ll sit at His banquet table,
and I will have all that I need
but until that day comes . . .
in His Word garden, I will feed!

I am A Student ~

I am Just a Student ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I am just a student,
I study to become wise
I look for the truth
with wonder in my eyes.

I pray every morning,
for the Holy Spirit’s leading
so He’ll open up my mind
to everything I’ll be reading.

I consider and I examine,
every Word and every line
I look for God’s promises
and claim them all as mine.

As I look up the meaning,
to the Words I highlight
I see my own darkness
while blessed in His light.

There’s something to be said,
when you study on your own
and one day to all my questions
I know God, will make known.

But for now, I am His student,
I read my Bible every day
the Holy Spirit is my teacher
who guides me along the way!

Constant and True ~

Faithful and True ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When disappointed,
when all else fails
I know just One
whose love prevails.

God is the same,
year after year
He is unwavering
His way is always clear.

He remains faithful,
constant and true
the Rock for my soul
to anchor forever unto.

Merciful and loyal,
grace without an end
my eternal Helper
my life-saving Friend.

Trust worthy He is,
more than just reliable
for His every promise
are still redeemable.

When all else fails,
when I’m disappointed
I turn to  the unchangeable One
and in His love I am anointed!

My Road Map ~

I Have Hidden used with pemission IBible Verses
The Word is my road map,
that guides me along my way
leading me with great wisdom
to help me through my day.

When I am at a crossroad,
not sure of the way to go
I ask Jesus for directions
so the true way I will know.

When I find I’m too weary,
to make it down the road
I pray for His endurance
to help me with my load.

When I get off His path,
and I wander on my own
I get down on my knees
till His way for me is shown.

Yes, the Word is our road map,
the perfect guide for each of us
but we must read the scriptures
if in Jesus we’re going to trust!

By My Fruits. . .

Soil by Marian Trinidad free photo # 9785

By my fruits,
will I be known
by all the seeds
I have sown.

The good ones,
and the bad
the ones that take
the ones that add.

Just what will it be,
that other’s see
making them want
what’s inside me?

Will their eyes,
glimpse and know
God is with me
from the seeds I sow?

Am I strong,
or, am I weak
is it my will
or the Lord’s I seek?

Did I plant,
the seeds in love
not of mine
but, of God’s above.

Were they watered,
from the start
with God’s Word
straight from my heart?

Can they see,
the peace within
or is peace missing
because of hidden sin?

Will they see,
God’s strength and power
or has my faith
turned somewhat sour?

All these things,
I need to ask
for, there is no hiding
behind a mask.

God knows the true purpose,
and intent of my labor
so I pray He grants . . .
all my seeds His favor.

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

James 3:17-18

“But the wisdom that is from above
is first pure, then peaceable, gentle,
willing to yield, full of mercy

Nature by Sandara Lee free photo Creation Swap

The seed has been planted,
for every nation to hear
the fields are now ready
the harvest is almost near.

The season is turning right,
the time is drawing close
soon our Savior will come
but the hour no one knows.

The Word has gone out,
the desert rose is a bloom
in God’s heavenly mansion
there’s still plenty of room.

The soil has been prepared,
the sacrifice has been made
the time is running out
for lost souls to be swayed.

The showers have increased,
the outpouring is on the rise
and the day Jesus comes
will be twinkling in our eyes.

The message of hope continues,
it will to the very end . . .
still we don’t how much longer
the time ~ God plans to extend!

In Your LIght ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord . . .

As the moon beams fade,
along with the darken night
I ask You to walk with me
and lead me in Your light.

In the morning’s early luster,
amidst it’s golden hue
I rise up with the sun
and give my day to You.

While the air is yet cool,
before the dew sets in
I cover myself in Your love
till I feel Your warmth within.

Before the birds first song,
while all is calm and still
I meditate on Your Word . . .
and learn for me Your will.

When the day dawns on me,
lit by the Spirit’s glow
I rest assured in knowing
You’ll be with me as I go!

In Due Season ~

In Due Season ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Rest in the Lord while you wait,
for the answer to your prayers
you mustn’t grow faint or weary
or think He no longer cares.

Keep your heart focused on Jesus,
immerse yourself in His Word
rest and have faith like a child
believe your requests He’s heard.

Trust the Lord and hold fast,
He is the God who is never late
He has your best interest in mind
and has His purpose for the wait.

Believe He’s working things out,
accept that He has His own reason
if you’re not reaping answers now
they’ll be harvested in due season!

Cries From the Heart . . .

Bleeding Heart by Brian Cole free photo #2389

When the heart cries to be heard,
yet it shares not a single word
when it yearns to speak to another
yet its voice it can’t uncover.

When the heart needs someone else,
another person stronger than itself
when it feels the tug of deep emotion
and has the need for true devotion.

When the heart ceases its futile search,
and comes down from its high perch
it will see its looked in all the wrong places
for man can’t fill the need for God’s graces.

For the heart that cries and is not heard,
needs to cleave onto the Good Word . . .
there they will find God has an ear
and cries from the heart . . . He’ll always hear.

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

Psalm 116:1-2

What Causes Our Feet to Stumble?

What Causes Our Feet To Stumle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo CreationSwap

What causes our feet to stumble,
so quickly in these last days?
Was not Jesus our example,
on how to keep ourselves humble?

Did He not draw a line in the sand,
an expose to all men their sin?
Was He not the One who promised,
salvation would come from His hand?

Did He not still preach the Word,
to all those He came across?
Did He not hold them accountable,
for the truth that they had heard?

Did He not prepare the way,
for the Holy Spirit’s filling?
Did He not tell everyone to fear,
God’s wrath on judgment day?

Did He just give up,
and ask God to save Him from death?
Did He not continue on to drink,
the grace raised in His Father’s  cup?

Did He not face the cross,
with severe pain and suffering?
So then why do we think . . .
we should not undergo any loss?

What causes are feet to stumble,
so quickly in these last days?
Didn’t Jesus set for us an example,
on how to stay meek and humble?

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:8
King James Version

“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss
for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:

If Were To Be Like Jesus ~

To Be Like Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

To be more like Jesus,
we must walk with Him each day
we must take up our personal cross
and follow Him on the narrow way.

It’s an individual thing to decide,
no one can tell you what to do
after the Sunday service is over
it will be only Jesus and you.

As we learn to walk with Him,
we will see the newness in our life
and being just like Jesus . . .
will then become our only strife.

We walk the faith that we have,
the measure of it only we know
but if we’re willing to study His word
in our hearts it’s sure to grow.

There is no assurance,
from His light we will not stray
but if you trust in the Holy Spirit
He’ll keep you from falling  away.

 He will give us divine wisdom,
He’ll lead and guide our way
till He takes us to His Kingdom
where we’ll walk with Him each day!

~~~~~~~~~~

I am Not Ashamed!

Disciple by Joel Barr free photo#7612

Lord, I am not ashamed,
of the hope that lives in me
I wear my faith openly
for all the world to see.

You asked me to be the light,
to shine Your Word upon my path
so, I share Your truth knowing
at me they’ll scorn and laugh.

I am not intimidated,
by the words and thoughts of man
instead, I rejoice in the knowledge
You will finish what You began.

You asked me to be the salt,
to spread Your favor on the earth
so, I tell the story on my way
of their sin, Your life, new birth.

I am not afraid,
or concerned what man may do
for I know that I am Yours
and they can’t take me from You.

You asked me to follow You,
in my every act and deed
I do so willingly because I know
You will help me as I need.

I am not beaten,
although man may think he’s won
for, I’ve seen the crown of victory
upon my Lord, the Christ, Your Son.

You asked me to be faithful,
my trust in You remains
I know You will walk with me
on the narrowest of these plains.

Lord, I am not ashamed,
despite how man wants me to feel
the Good News is my life . . .
and Your love  ~ I must reveal!

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

Mark 8:38
