Give Me Grace Lord ~

Give me grace Lord,
when all is going right
give me more of it . . .
when up against a fight.

Give me grace Lord,
when the sunshine is out
give me more of it . . .
when there’s clouds of doubt.

Give me grace Lord,
when it’s time to sing
give me more of it . . .
when life begins to sting.

Give me grace Lord,
when I’m happy as a lark
give me more of it . . . .
when all is looking dark.

Give me grace Lord,
when I am sitting pretty
give me more of it . . .
when life becomes gritty.

Give me grace Lord,
amble and sufficient
for I know it will be . . .
perfect and efficient!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9a

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness.

Draw To God Near ~

When my heart pounds,
with anxiety and fear
it only calms down . .
as I draw to God near.

For the closer I get,
to where He is . . .
I am reminded
my dread is all His.

When my nerves jitter,
with doubt and worry
they only ease up . . .
when with God I tarry.

For the more time,
with Him I spend
I can see His light
just around the bend.

When my I am feeling,
shaky and dismayed
to God I close in . . .
so not to be 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.

I Call On God’s Name ~

I know God’s name,
I call it out . . .
whenever I’m faced
with worry or doubt.

He hears my cries,
He sees my tears . . .
my faith in Him
eases my fears.

I know God’s promise,
I hold on to it . . .
He’ll not forsake me
calms down my spirit.

He is my refuge,
my stronger tower . . .
I lean on Him
for strength and power.

I know God’s name,
I am not afraid . . .
for my trust in Him
leaves me not dismayed!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 9:10

And they that know thy name
will put their trust in thee:
for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken
them that seek thee.

Proverbs 18:10

The name of the Lord
is a strong tower:
the righteous runneth
into it, and is safe.

Isaiah 12:2

Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and not be afraid:
for the Lord Jehovah is my strength
and my song; he also is become
my salvation.

Sticky Note From God ~11.08.20~

Proverbs 12:25


Fraught With Worry ~

Often we find our hearts,
are fraught with worry
our thoughts turn into . . .
a nervous, swirling flurry.

We fret and we fuss,
over what we can’t control
until fear becomes . . .
embedded into our soul.

Often we find our minds,
are overwhelmed by dread
our thinking gets clouded . . .
by the anxiety in our head.

We get so caught up in,
our fearful trepidation
until fear’s spiny fingers . . .
takes over our circulation.

Often we find our hearts,
letting worry into our mind
keeping us from God’s peace
to discover or to find!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.

Heavy On My Mind ~

When my cares,
on me weigh . . .
that’s when to God
I kneel and pray.

For when they stay,
heavy on my mind
there is no peace
that I can find.

When my worries,
creep into my life
that’s when onto Jesus
I give Him my strife.

For when they linger,
in my thoughts
they leave me weary
and oh, so fraught.

When my concerns,
weigh me down
I turn to God
for a heart sound.

For I know no other,
thing for me to do
but cast my cares . . .
Lord onto You!

~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

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

Let Jesus Fight For You ~

Jesus will fight for you,
just give Him your battle
He knows without Him
you’re weak and fragile.

All you have to do,
is pass your cares along
then wait and be still
till He makes you strong.

Jesus will fight for you,
all you have to do is ask
then all of your troubles
onto Him you must cast.

Soon you will have,
peace filling your heart
keeping your mind
from unraveling apart.

Jesus will fight for you,
on this you can be sure
for the battle is His . . .
not yours alone to endure!

~~~~~~~~~~

Exodus 14:14

“The Lord shall fight for you,
and ye shall hold your peace.”

Hopelessly Impossible ~

Got a huge problem,
don’t know what to do
no finger nails left . . .
on which to chew?

Pulling your hair,
biting your lip
beginning to lose . . .
on life your grip?

Well don’t you let,
what you can’t do
take away what God
has planned for you.

For, what to you is,
hopelessly impossible
with God it is . . .
effortlessly possible.

So turn your problem,
over to His care . . .
for, there’s no concern
He’s not willing to bear!

~~~~~~

Mark 10:27

“And Jesus looking upon them saith,
With men it is impossible,
but not with God:
for with God
all things are possible.”

Jesus, My Calm ~

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm before the storm
for bringing me peace . . .
before it starts to form.

For, I never know,
when one I’ll go through
and when I do . . .
I want it to be with You.

Lord, thank You for going,
into the storm with me
there’s no one else
with whom I’d rather be.

For, only You can still,
my fears that fall and crest
and provide for me
an anchor on which to rest.

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm after the storm
for bringing me back to . . .
a place safe and warm!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 8:24

“And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish.
Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water:
and they ceased, and there was a calm”

Cling ~

Cling
when you’re heart
is broken
Cling
when no words
can be spoken.

Cling
when you’re downcast
and depressed
Cling
when you’re troubled
and harassed.

Cling
when you’re stricken
and afflicted
Cling
when you’re confused
and conflicted.

Cling
when you’re defeated
and overburdened
Cling
when you’re weak
and disheartened.

Cling
when you’re worried
and tormented
Cling
when you’re restless
and discontented.

Cling
when you’re feeling
sad and blue
Cling
when you don’t know . . .
what else to do!

May God’s Peace Rule ~

May God’s peace,
rule your mind today
may to its quieting lull
your heart give way.

May you experience,
God’s tranquility
may it fill you with
grace and humility.

May you relish,
the settled quietness
may you soak up
the sedated peacefulness.

May you encounter,
God’s perfect stillness
may you receive
His stilling calmness.

May the peace of God,
ease your worried mind
may in your heart
His serenity you find!

A Trembling Mess ~

I use to be,
panic-stricken
I once was
fear driven.

But then Jesus,
said to me
don’t be afraid
by what you see.

I use to be,
a big worry wart
I once was
anxiety’s transport.

But then Jesus,
took my cares
said they were His
alone to bear.

I use to be,
a trembling mess
but then Jesus carried
away all my distress!

“For God hath not given us
the spirit of fear;
but of power,
and of love,
and of a sound mind.”

I’m Never Alone ~

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

His very presence,
gives me such peace
for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

He brings me comfort,
just knowing He’s here
He fills my heart and soul
with joy and good cheer.

I once thought,
I’d be left on my own
but since I found Jesus
I am never alone!

Give God Your Worries ~

give-god-your-worries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people worry,
about anything
some get anxious
over everything.

Some wrestle daily,
with their troubles
some nightly fight
with their struggles.

But, those who wait,
on the Lord are still
the worries they have
their peace cannot steal.

They cast their anxiety,
onto Jesus each day
they don’t fret about
things coming their way.

Some people worry,
about anything
but, those who trust God
give Him their everything!

There’s Nothing God Can’t Do ~

therss-nothing-too-hard-for-god-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is nothing too hard,
for God to do . . .
there isn’t anything
He can’t perform  for you.

There isn’t a place too tight,
God can’t get you out of
there isn’t a problem so deep
He can’t help you rise above.

There isn’t a relationship,
God can’t save and heal
there isn’t a broken heart
He can’t make again to feel.

There isn’t a single fear,
God can’t make go away
there isn’t one little doubt
He can’t begin to sway.

There isn’t a spiritual crisis,
God can’t alleviate
there isn’t a physical issue
He can’t regenerate.

Nothing is too hard for God,
there’s not anything He can’t do
all He needs to have . . .
is faith and trust from you!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 18:14

“Is any thing too hard for the Lord?
At the time appointed I will return

of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

Tunneling Through ~

Tunneling Through ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When up to your ears,
with problems and fear
before they swallow you up
ask God to draw you near.

Ask Him to give you,
the courage you need
so from fear’s sinkhole
you can be freed.

When life gets too hard,
to make your way though
before you start to panic
ask God what you should do.

He’ll give you the strength,
to burrow your way out
and keep you from getting
buried in fear and doubt.

When worry buries you,
up to your ears . . .
let Jesus help you tunnel
through all your fears!

~~~~~~~

“So that we may boldly say,
The Lord is my helper,
and I will not fear what
man shall do unto me.”

Cast Your Cares Upon Jesus ~

Cast Your Cares Unto Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Cast your cares upon Jesus,
direct your soul His way
give Him all your worries
find true peace for the day.

Hold and keep not a burden,
let Him ease the strain
give Him all of your fears
and His peace you will gain.

Cast your concerns upon Him,
your every want and need
to His leading and guiding
let your heart be willing to cede.

Grasp and hold onto Jesus,
let not pride get in your way
for Satan is alive and well
and wants to ruin your day.

Cast your cares upon Jesus,
is something you must do
for Jesus has promised . . .
to take your cares from you!

When Life’s Not Fair ~

When Life's Unfair ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When things in life,
are just not fair . . .
and you feel you have
way too much to bear.

That’s when you need,
more of God’s grace
to help you through
the dilemmas you face.

When bad things happen,
though you are good
and you don’t understand
why they ever should.

That’s when you need,
more of God’s mercy
so you can trust Him on
your uncertain journey.

When God doesn’t meet,
your expectations
when you become full
of doubt and questions.

That’s when you need,
to put your life in His hands
and pray He’ll reveal . . .
the purpose behind His plans!

~~~~~~~~~

James 1:12

“Blessed is the man that
endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive
the crown of life,
which the Lord hath
promised to them
that love him.”

A Verse A Day ~

Your Word My Light

A Verse a day,
will keep the devil away
a Word or two
will help restore and renew.

A Scripture thought,
will help when distraught
a Bible study plan
will lead and command.

A Verse a day,
will keep fear at bay
a Word or two
will power you through.

A Scripture learned,
will help when concerned
a Bible nearby
will keep Jesus close by.

A Verse a day,
is a daily must . . .
for it will direct you
in God, to always trust!
