Masks ~

Some hide behind,
masks of every kind
some wear disguises
if only in their mind.

Some camouflage,
who they truly are
some cover up
life’s many battle scars.

Some keep hidden,
the agony they feel
some their heartache
they want to conceal.

Some pretend to be,
happy when they’re not
some try to obscure
the problems they’ve got.

Some gloss over,
their heart’s insecurities
some try to cloak
their personal disabilities.

But, behind the masks,
from God we can’t hide
for He sees everything
going on, on the inside.

So, take off the disguise,
you are hiding behind
and let God transform . . .
your heart and mind!

Job 34:21

“For his eyes
are upon the ways of man,
and he seeth all his goings.”

God To The Rescue ~

god-to-the-rescue-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Desperate times,
takes trust courageous
they take knowing
God will deliver us.

Hopeless situations,
takes prayers plentiful
they take believing
God’s arm is stretchable.

Dire circumstances,
takes faith fearless
they take convincing
God knows His business.

Dreadful conditions,
takes belief unbelievable
they take awareness
with God all is achievable.

Desperate times,
takes prayer, faith and trust
they take confidence
God will come rescue us!

Committing To The Narrow Way ~

commiting-to-the-narrow-way-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Having a hard time,
staying on the narrow way
too many obstacles
to get over each day?

Too many trials,
testings and tribulations
keeping you from striving
to your eternal destination?

Feeling you’ll never get,
through the narrow gate
too many challenges keeping
you from going straight?

Too many worries,
troubles and cares
too many burdens
for you to have to bear?

Well don’t get discourage,
to the narrow way commit
and be happy that you  . . .
were even able to find it!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:14

“Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.”

God Is Our Shelter ~

god-shelters-us-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God is our shelter,
in the storms of stress
He brings comfort
to us in our duress.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of sorrow
He gives us the joy
to face the morrow.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of fear
He brings peace
by drawing to us near.

God is our shelter,
in the storms of grief
He gives us strength
brings our hearts relief.

God is our shelter,
in all the storms of life
He brings the calm
in the midst of our strife!

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!

Praying for God Peace ~

praying-for-god-peace-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every day to God,
I pray for His peace
I ask that my faith
in Him, to increase.

I pray for renewal,
in spirit and in mind
I ask that His will
will be easy to find.

Every day to God,
I pray for directions
I ask Him to give me
Spirit filled instructions.

I give Him my burden,
my worry and my care
I let Him know they are
too much for me to bear.

Every day to God,
His peace, I pray for
and He never fails . . .
to always give me more!

Grace To The Humble ~

grace-for-the-humble-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When trials blow,
me to the ground
when my cares
take me down.

Before I rise,
back to my feet
I pray to God
my needs to meet.

When storms blow,
through my door
when my worries
take me to the floor.

Before I get,
to my legs back
I pray to God
for the grace I lack.

For, in my life,
to God I’ve found
to humble myself
when I am down!

James 4:6

“But he giveth more grace.
Wherefore he saith,
God resisteth the proud,

Gripped With Fear ~

gripped-with-fear-chrisian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Gripped with fear,
worry and doubt
can’t shut anxiety
in your mind out?

Then you need God,
to release His power
so your every fear
you can overpower.

Seized by nerves,
enveloped in troubles
clinging to your fears
with white knuckles?

Then you need to let go,
of all of your cares
and give to Jesus
your burdens to bear.

If you want to shake,
fears tightening grip
seek God and from it . . .
you will easily slip!

~~~~~~

Psalm 34:4

“I sought the Lord,
and he heard me,
and delivered me
from all my fears.”

Life Isn’t Fair ~

life-isnt-fair-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God’s purposes are bigger,
than all of our troubles
He has His reason
for each of our struggles.

God uses our problems,
to temper our hearts
so His grace and mercy
in them He can impart.

God uses our worries,
to help us focus on
why He sent into this world
His own begotten Son.

God uses our burdens,
so we can learn to be
dependent on Jesus
not in what we can see.

God’s purposes are grander,
than our every care . . .
that’s why in the Bible
you won’t hear, life is fair!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things
work together for good

Forever Strong ~

forever-strong-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Sometimes our journey,
seems so hard and long
making it so difficult
to remain being strong.

The pain and the grief,
each day that we face
challenges us daily
to hold on to God’s grace.

Our every single care,
along with what worries us
makes it so very tough
to keep our faith and trust.

The burdens of this life,
weighs us so far down
making it feel as if . . .
God isn’t always around.

Sometimes our journey,
can be hard and long
but if we focus on Jesus
we’ll remain forever strong!

“He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might
he increaseth strength.”

Cares Unbound ~

Cares Unbound ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some people carry,
the world’s weight
for on their shoulder
their troubles grate.

Some people worry,
about everything
for on their minds
fear twists and wrings.

Some people stress,
over everyday life
for on their hearts
grinds daily strife.

Some people suffer,
from depression
for on their souls
is guilt’s impression.

Some people carry,
their burdens around
but if  they’d turn to Jesus
their cares, He’d unbound!

Singing In The Rain ~

In The Shadow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today, there is a storm
but, I’m still going to sing
no matter how much rain
on my life it may bring.

I will leap and I will jump,
through and in the puddles
for under my Father’s wings
I will be securely huddled.

If lightning were to strike,
my Father will protect me
if the thunder came to roar
in His wings shadow I will be.

No matter how hard it pours,
or how sizeable the drops
in the shadow of the Almighty
I will stay until it stops.

Today, on me it’s raining,
but, I’m still going to sing
because I know I am safe
under my Father’s mighty wings!

Psalm 63:7

“Because thou hast been my help,
therefore in the shadow of thy
wings will I rejoice.”

Don’t Worry, Be Trusting ~

worry-fades-away ~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~

Don’t worry about tomorrow,
don’t fret about today
just keep your eyes on Jesus
let Him take your cares away.

Don’t become weary,
don’t become faint and weak
just keep your eyes on Jesus
make sure He’s the first you seek.

Don’t stress about anything,
don’t tense up about your life
just keep your eyes on Jesus
let Him deal with all your strife.

Don’t become fearful,
don’t become full of doubt
just keep your eyes on Jesus
let Him work your faith out.

Don’t be anxious for tomorrow,
don’t stress about anything
just keep your eyes on Jesus
and be sure to pray for everything!

If We Want Peace ~

If We Want Peace ~ CHRISTian poety by deborah ann

If we want peace,
transforming our lives
then all of our fears
we must archive.

If we want peace,
altering our minds
then all of our cares
we must leave behind.

If we want peace,
changing our hearts
then from our worries
we must break apart.

If we want peace,
for the rest of our days
then for everything
we must learn to pray.

If we want peace,
then our attitudes
must be full of  . . .
thankful gratitude!

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.”

Victory Over Fear ~

If We're Not to be Fearful ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
If we’re not to be fearful,
if we’re not to be afraid
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel overwhelmingly dismayed?

If we’re not to despair,
if we’re not to be weak
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel so hopelessly bleak?

If we’re not to be concerned,
if we’re not to worry about today
then why do we sometimes . .
feel so helpless anyway?

If we’re not to be frightened,
if we’re not to have a single care
then why do we sometimes . . .
feel so emotionally threadbare?

If we’re not to be fearful,
if we’re not to be dismayed
then why are we not trembling . . .
with joy, instead of being afraid?

~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will
help thee; yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Hold On Tight ~

What A Ride ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some days I hear my Lord say,
dip in to Me a little closer
your life need not be . . .
like a winding roller-coaster.

The past is but a whisper,
compared to what’s in store
so don’t you get off track
by its fearful, screaming roar.

Today is just a vapor,
in the bigger scheme of things
so don’t you be frightened
by the ups and downs it brings.

Tomorrow they’ll be worries,
so don’t faint over them today
just know I’ll be next to you
as they come whirling your way.

Right now just remember,
you are in for quite a ride
but you can count on Me
to be right by your side.

Some days I hear my Lord,
tell me just to hold on tight
for in life’s twists and turns
I’ll be your guiding light!

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

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.

To The Heavens and Back ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I love You Lord,
to the heavens and back
I trust You Lord
for all that I lack.

I know You’re watching,
looking out for me
I have faith in You for
the things I can’t see.

I love You Lord,
from here to eternity
I trust You Lord
You have my fidelity.

I believe when You said,
I’d not be forsaken
I love You so much
my faith can’t be shaken.

I love You Lord,
from here to Your throne
I will trust You Lord
till You take me home!

In Times Of ~

In Times Of ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In times of prosperity,
God wants our praise
in times of affliction
God wants our gaze.

In times of sickness,
God wants our prayer
in times of hardship
God wants our care.

In times of opportunity,
God wants our devotion
in times of disappointment
God wants our emotion.

In times of sorrow,
God wants our grief
in times of doubt
God wants our belief.

In times of confusion,
God wants our uncertainty
in times of spiritual need
God wants our prosperity!

“And he shall be like a tree planted
by the rivers of water, that bringeth

STICKY NOTE TO GOD ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ 02.03.16 ~


One-Step- At-A-Time ~

It's A Daily Thing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creation Swap

It’s a daily thing,
this Christian walk
it’s a one-step-at-a-time
this Christian walk.

It’s a journey,
at times a troublesome one
it’s a battle
with Satan that must be won.

It’s a voyage,
one storm right after another
it’s a struggle
to keep our faith from going under.

It’s a passage,
from the darkness into the light
it’s an encounter
needing all our strength and might.

It’s an expedition,
with our very own cross to bear
it’s a fight
not to buckle under from our care.

It’s a daily thing,
this Christian walk
it’s a one-step-at-a-time
to walk this Christian walk!

For Thou Art With Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah

Lord, You’ll never leave me,
this I know is a fact
for You have my front
and You guard my back.

You see all my comings,
and notice wherever I go
Your rod and staff
makes my faith grow.

For, they lead and direct me,
to pastures where I gleam
the truth of Your Spirit
beyond valleys green.

In the middle of my troubles,
there I can find You
in the midst of my worries
You are there too.

Your eyes are ever on me,
Your ears listen to my prayers
I can always trust You
to take from me my cares.

Lord, You’re my future hope,
my brighter eternal day
where for eternity we’ll be
if I let You lead the way!

Just Pray ~

Just Pray ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In everything in life,
no matter how big or small
the trivial and the considerable
let Jesus have them all.

Take time to talk with Him,
not just in your prayers
share no matter the time of day
your worries and your cares.

Then quickly give them to Him,
and wait for Him to answer
with praise and thanksgiving
watch as your burdens transfer.

For, Jesus will take them all,
His peace will come your way
if in everything, you don’t forget
to talk to Him and just pray!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

and supplication with thanksgiving

be made known unto God.

which passeth

shall keep your hearts and minds

through Christ Jesus.”
