Waiting In The Gap ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Sometimes I stand and wait,
in the gap of my prayer
between my plea to God
and the depth of my despair.

There seems to be a void,
an empty span of space
and though I’ve no answers
I can still sense His grace.

I walk through the abyss,
of God’s love for me
keeping my faith in Him
for what I cannot see.

I put away my fears,
in exchange for His rest
knowing I can trust in Him
as I wait for me His best.

Sometimes I stand and wait,
in prayer’s hopeful gap . . .
and let His love and grace
my heart and soul wrap!

Sunny Promises

Peacock Poetry

There has been a chill in the air the past couple of weeks and I, for one am ready for some kinder Spring temperatures! On one of my walks this weekend I was very inspired by the dandelions as they seemed to be a visual reminder that milder and sunnier times would soon be on their way!

All Yellow

The dandelions adorn the grass like smiling sunny glimpses

illuminating April’s path though bitter wind still winces

Can’t help but feel a budding zeal on viewing their bright petals

So ready for Spring sex appeal, may wooing vibes now settle

Wild yellow spray can save the day, for they grow on quite careless

So ready for a milder phase and heightened new awareness

I’m joyful every time I pass, what’s positive convinces

The dandelions adorn the grass like smiling sunny glimpses

A Trust Tangible ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Lord give me a heart,
one willing to go do
everything You ask
though I don’t know how to.

Let me not count on,
my own comprehending
instead let me rely on
what is Your understanding.

Lord give me a mind,
one able to go act
anything You require
without knowing the facts.

Let me not refer,
to my own way of thinking
instead let me employ
Your way of reasoning,

Lord give me a heart,
with a trust tangible
give me a mind . . .
filled with Your rational!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;
and lean not unto
thine own understanding.

Lady Grace

She is a lady named grace

She has a lovely face

She has a sparkle in her eye

She is so very shy

Her clothes are so neat

And she has beautiful feet

And you will really care

About her long shiny hair

Be ready to keep pace

With the lovely lady Grace

Child Of The Day ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Child of the day,
children of the Light
put our trust in God
with all of our might.

Warriors on this earth,
fighting off evilness
pledge never to return
to our former wretchedness

Holy and righteous are we,
holding on to the Life
even though it causes us
worldly grief and strife.

Awake, sober and alert,
to the powers of darkness
son’s and daughter’s of God
full of awe and awareness.

Child of the Light,
children of the day
put all of our faith in . . .
the Truth, Life and Way!

~~~~~~~~

Thessalonians 5:4-5

But ye, brethren, are not
in darkness, that that day
should overtake you as a thief.

Ye are all the children of light,
and the children of the day:
we are not of the night,
nor of darkness.

Therefore let us not sleep,
as do others; but let us
watch and be sober.

A Doubting Spirit ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

A doubting spirit,
will get you no where
a wavering one
will only add to your care

A steadfast soul,
will only make you strong
a believing one
will never steer you wrong.

A leery heart,
will only get in God’s way
a wary one
will cause faith to decay.

A skeptical mind,
will befuddle and confuse
a distrustful one
will perplex and bemuse.

A vacillating soul,
makes a wavering trust
a loyal one
knows God is always just!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my beloved brethren,
be ye stedfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work
of the Lord, forasmuch as ye
know that your labour is not
in vain in the Lord.

chimera

House of Heart

You want her to be real
A half smile curve of lips
a glide of a hand through hair

the click of heels on a marble floor
You want to be her clothes
falling  softly about her feet 
that have formed the shape of wings 

and when she arches her back
she soars as high as chimera can fly.

Renewed Daily ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Each day I’m being renewed,
in the recess of my mind
as I find in my Bible
blessings of every kind.

As my faith is restored,
my trust in God improves
I can see through my life
how the Holy Spirit moves.

A new man in me He makes,
as I put off the former things
my strength is refreshed
as I grow my eagle wings.

A clean heart He bestows,
His spirit now lives in me
the joy of my salvation
I want every one to see.

Though my body is perishing,
I’m being renewed day by day
and the inward man is rejoicing
singing hallelujah and hooray!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:16

““For which cause we faint not;
but though our outward man
perish,yet the inward man is
renewed day by day.”
