In The Right Direction ~

Sometimes God,
needs to get my attention
so He can reestablish
with Him a connection.

So He sends into my life,
trials and tribulations
to see if I will trust Him
with all their complications.

Sometimes God,
needs to redirect my life
by giving me things
that will cause me strife.

He wants to know,
how deep my faith goes
so that my weaknesses
to me He can expose.

Sometimes God,
has to get my attention
so He can keep me going
in the right direction!

1 Peter 1:6-7

“Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though now for a season,
if need be, ye are in
heaviness through
manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious
than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise
and honour and glory at
the appearing of Jesus Christ:”

The Fires of Affliction ~

Are you in the midst,
of the fires of affliction
are you dealing with
the heat of its conviction?

Are you brought to tears,
from the battle you’re in
is it hard letting go
of your besetting sin?

Are you struggling,
enduring the purification
is your faith being tested
beyond your expectations?

Well, if you are facing,
God’s refining pot . . .
know He needs to get
the flames burning hot.

For, He is purging out of you,
everything worthless . . .
so He can make you ready
for His divine service!

~~~~~

Isaiah 48:10

“Behold, I have refined thee,
but not with silver;
I have chosen thee in
the furnace of affliction.”

Pressurized ~

dont-be-pressurized-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Feeling the pressure,
from your peers
no matter your age
or number of years?

Well, you won’t collapse,
under the pressure
if you keep your eyes on
your heavenly treasure.

Being influenced,
to follow the crowd
where anything goes
everything is allowed?

Well, you needn’t fold,
under the pressure
if you go to your Bible
for a daily refresher.

Being criticized,
for how you believe
because worldly views
you refuse to receive?

Well don’t you give in,
no matter the pressure
know your faith in God
brings Him pleasure.

Being mocked,
teased and made fun of
because you rather follow
the Light from above?

Well don’t you cave in,
nor be conformed . . .
instead let your mind
in God be transformed!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed
to this world:
but be ye transformed
by the renewing
of your mind,
that ye may prove what is
that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

Thank You God ~

Thank You God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Thank you God,
for all my days
for Your Spirit
to whom my soul sways.

For the calming peace,
You’ve instilled in me
for Your loving kindness
that has set me free.

For guiding me,
to find the Truth and Life
so I may conquer
all my worldly strife.

For leading me,
to the everlasting Light
which helps me to walk
pleasingly in Your sight.

Thank you God,
for each new day
for giving me Your Word
to enlighten the Way!

~~~~~~

“For thy lovingkindness
is before mine eyes:
and I have walked in thy truth.”
