Rock Bottom ~

Hitting rock bottom
having a hard time
thinking not another
mountain to climb?

Well, don’t you ever forget,
just who is your Rock
or who over that mountain
will help you to walk.

Up against a rock,
and a hard place
thinking you should
just quit the race?

Well don’t you give up,
hold on to the Rock
and through that valley
He will help you walk.

Having a hard time,
in your faithful walk?
Well don’t you forget
Jesus is your Rock!

1 Corinthians 10:4

“And did all drink
the same spiritual drink:
for they drank of that
spiritual Rock that
followed them:
and that Rock was Christ.

In A Jam ~

In a tight jam,
with no way out
once full of faith
now full of doubt?

Well, don’t you lose hope,
God’s the master of jams
for, He’s gotten out before
many of His trapped lambs.

Up against a wall,
don’t have a clear view
getting to the other side
looks impossible to do?

Well don’t you give up,
up and over you will go
for God will make a way
and a path He will show.

In a tight jam,
a wall up against . . .
well don’t you forget God
will come to your defense!

When I’m Restless ~

When I am restless,
in need of a break
I go to the only One
who never will forsake.

As I lean into Him,
He rests inside of me
all my anxiousness
on Him, I set free.

He takes my cares,
releases the strain
any worries I have
He begins to drain.

A sense of renewal,
stirs within my soul
over my anxieties
He resumes control.

When I am restless,
to Jesus I will go . . .
for He is the only One
who my breath can slow!

In Jesus’ Loving Arms ~

Lord, come comfort me today,
I need to feel Your arms
shielding and protecting me
from all that hurts and harms.

Take away this unrest,
filling my heart and my soul
come to me with Your arms
ready to soothe and console.

Lord, come give me solace,
peace and encouragement
today in Your loving arms
let me find nourishment.

Remove my anxiety,
relieve me from my fear
in Your waiting arms
draw me close and near.

Lord, come comfort me today,
hold me in Your embrace
renew in me the hope . . .
of Your undying grace!

That Weighted Down Feeling ~

Carrying a heavy load,
shoulders getting weak
is the weight of your worries
causing your knees to creak?

Problems mounting up,
in way over your head
is the weight of your cares
turning your feet into lead?

Anxiety has your heart,
missing a beat or two
is the weight of your stress
weighing on your mind too?

Well, I have a cure,
for that weighted down feeling
one that will bring to you . . .
peace, hope and healing.

On Jesus cast your cares,
and your anxieties too
so with His strength
He can empower you!

If Perfect Love ~

if-perfect-love-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

If perfect love,
casts out all fear
then why do we feel
danger is always near?

If perfect love,
dispels the dread
then why do we feel
despair in our head?

If perfect love,
makes us unafraid
then why do we feel
so ever dismayed?

If perfect love,
has not a worry
then why do we feel
our cares we must carry?

If perfect love,
does what it says it can do
then why don’t we Jesus . . .
just give our fears to You?

~~~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth
out fear: because fear
hath torment. He that
feareth is not made
perfect in love.”

A Perfect Getaway ~

A Perfect Get Away ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In times of trouble,
we need a hideaway
a place we can go . . .
just to get away.

We need a retreat,
a place to de-stress
we need a refuge
so we can decompress.

In times of troubles,
we need a resort
a place where we can find
some Godly support.

We need a haven,
a shelter of protection
we need a sanctuary
a place for reflection.

In times of trouble,
we need a getaway
and God provides . . .
the perfect hideaway!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:1

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”

When Calm Eludes You ~

When Calmness Eludes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When calm doesn’t come,
when peace is far away
I stop what I’m doing
and to my Father, I pray.

Prayer is my refuge,
from the dread inside me
it’s where I find comfort
from the fear, I can’t see.

When I am anxious,
when my nerves are a mess
I pray without stopping
to rid myself of distress.

I put my trust in God,
till I’m no longer afraid
His unfailing love keeps me
from becoming dismayed.

When calmness eludes you,
when peace seems so far away
the best thing you can do . . .
is stop everything and pray!

This Too Shall End ~

This Too ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

This too I know,
will soon be gone
so to my faith
I will hold on.

I will stay strong,
I won’t be weak
for God’s grace
I’ll hourly seek.

His grace helps me,
to stick things out
for it calms my fears
dispels my doubt.

It buoys my trust,
dispels my nerves
it shows me worrying
does not, Him serve.

This too I know,
shall soon end and pass
until it does  . . .
I’ll not let fear trespass!

~~~~~~~~

Joshua 1:9

” Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou
dismayed: for the Lord thy God
is with thee whithersoever
thou goest.”

Care Casting ~

Casting In ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My cares I’m casting,
with all sureness
giving them to the Lord
with this assurance.

That all of my concerns,
He will take from me
from my every worry
He will set me free.

With confidence,
I’m placing all my trust
onto the One
who truly loves us.

My every illness,
all my pain and grief
I’m letting Jesus have
so I may have relief.

My cares I am casting,
onto Jesus with sureness
because He has given me
His caring assurance!

“Casting all your care
upon him;
for he careth for you.”

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.”

Faith Rises ~

Faith Rises ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Faith rises,
above our fears
calms our nerves
dries our tears.

Faith overcomes,
every obstacle
makes all things
truly possible.

Faith conquers,
all our doubts
with triumph cheers
and joyous shouts.

Faith defeats.
our worst enemy
fights off the devil
trounces his army.

Faith rises,
above our concerns
calms our worries . . .
till Jesus returns!

the spirit of fear; but of power,

Worries Debut ~

Worries Debut ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When worry makes,
its debut . . .
don’t let fear
take a hold of you.

Thrust it out,
as far as it can go
so in your mind
it won’t start to grow.

Then let God,
take it from there
it’s His worry
now to bear.

He’ll come though,
just as planned
so leave your cares
in His mighty hand.

God doesn’t want,
for you to stew . . .
when worry makes
its debut!

A Place Called Hard ~

A Place Called Hard ~  CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Lord, I have me a mountain,
I need You to remove
I have me a situation
only You can improve.

I got me a dilemma,
that needs to be resolved
I have me a problem
I need You to be involved.

Lord, I have me a river,
it’s as wide as it is deep
I have me a complication
that I don’t want to keep.

 I have a clear view,
of the storm that’s ahead
I have me an idea
it’s going to be widespread.

Lord, I’m between a rock,
and a place called hard
I am going to need You
to be my safeguard!

Give Me Your Yoke ~

MY BELOVED BY JOHN EMERY FREE PHOTO #9352

Come unto Me, My beloved,
give Me your yoke to bear
loosen from your shoulders
the burdens that on you wear.

Give unto Me, all your troubles,
nothing is too difficult for Me
take off those chains that bind
and keep you from being free.

Give unto Me, all your worries,
place them here at My feet
rid yourself of the constraints
that ties you up in defeat.

Give unto Me, your heavy load,
place it right here in My hand
work loose that which binds you
and experience My perfect plan.

Come unto Me, My beloved,
there is nothing that I can’t do
take off the yoke that keeps away
the love that I have for you!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:28-30

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

Take my yoke upon you,
and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly
in heart: and ye shall
find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.”

Holding the Line

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
