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!

Psalm 1:3

“And he shall be like a tree planted
by the rivers of water, that bringeth
forth his fruit in his season; his leaf
also shall not wither; and whatsoever
he doeth shall prosper.”

Stress Not ~

To stress or not to stress…that is the question!

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Stress Not ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’ve got worries,
but I’m not stressing
instead into God . . .
I’ll be hard pressing.

I’ve got problems,
God has a perfect plan
so I’m just leaving . . .
all of them in His hand.

I’ve got difficulties,
but, I’m not complaining
instead close to God . . .
I’ll keep on remaining.

I’ve got troubles,
God has an out for me
so I’ll just be waiting . . .
until one of them I see.

I’ve got worries,
but I’m not stressing
for I trust God’s working . . .
on sending me a blessing!

Matthew 6:25-26

‘Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought for your life,
what ye shall eat, or what ye
shall drink; nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on. Is not the
life more than meat,
and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air:

Rain Down On Us Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Rain on us Lord,
pour down Your holy fire
give every heart on earth
for You, a burning desire.

Flood us in Your love,
sprinkle us with Your grace
let the showers of Your mercy
every soul come to embrace.

Rain on us Lord,
let the skies open up wide
pour out life-giving water
till You gather Your bride.

Send on us a torrent,
of Your power and might
drench us with the peace
of Your saving light.

Rain on us Lord,
ignite a burning desire
set every soul aflame . . .
with the Holy Spirit’s fire!

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

An Encouraging Word ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

A word of encouragement,
everyone needs to hear . . .
words that will help dissolve
away another person’s fear.

Words that bring comfort,
to hearts that are frayed
words that will soothe
the ones that are afraid.

Words that will mend,
the effects of sin and pain
words that will bring hope
into someone’s life again.

Words that are restoring,
offering aid and relief
words that help to repair
another s faith and belief.

Words that are healing,
oozing truth like a balm
words that bring about
an everlasting calm.

A word of encouragement,
we all need to hear one
so today won’t you please . . .
encourage just someone!
