Be Not Overwhelmed ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Be not overwhelmed,
by the concerns of life
be not overpowered
by your daily strife.

Instead let Jesus,
fill you with His peace
so from your worries
you can be released.

Be not defeated,
by things you can’t control
be not burdened down
by the cares of your soul.

Instead let Jesus,
bring your heart comfort
so from your earthly woes
you will have His support.

Be not overwhelmed,
be not inundated . . .
instead let your life be
by Jesus captivated!


Psalm 34:4

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

Most of us know that relaxing and letting go are the key to feeling happier and more present. What is more challenging is knowing how to enter this state at will. As I pondered on the letting go I began to realise how subtle and divine an act it is.


You cannot make yourself let go

Can’t force into release

There is no effort in the flow

Can’t orchestrate deep peace

There is no action in ‘allow’

However hard you try

There’ll be no sweat upon your brow

Yet with relief you’ll sigh

For yielding is a subtle shift

It starts with saying yes

To all those big old feeling gifts

That show up in the mess

The moment that your soul accepts

what’s vulnerable and tender

Is powerfully effortless

Inhabit your surrender

Guard Your Heart ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Guard your heart my friend,
beware of the snare
satan likes to use
to trap you in despair.

For he will bait you,
with his many lies
to keep you from . . .
going for the prize.

Guard your mind my friend,
be careful of the lure
satan will use to keep
your thoughts impure.

For he will catch you,
when you are unaware
until with Jesus . . .
you lose your love affair.

Guard your life my friend,
keep going for the goal . . .
beware of satan’s trappings
lest he captures your soul!


Luke 21:34

And take heed to yourselves,
lest at any time your hearts
be overcharged with surfeiting,
and drunkenness, and cares
of this life, and so that day
come upon you unawares.

1 Thessalonians 5:6

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

To Get To You

House of Heart

The sun is slipping down the horizon 
the sunset threatens to disappear
Like a rusty penny
An echelon of wild geese gather above
so I follow grey wings into the storm.

My arms are branches and you are
my nourishment
cut me down to a boat.
My spine a sturdy keel , my hair
unfurled sails.  A distant lighthouse
my only lamp for you hold the stars
in your hand.
If red sails are cast into a cleft too
deep for me to cross
I was trying to get to you.

Wickedness ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

here and higher places
right before our faces.

spreading all around
trying to keep us down.

standing in front of us
mandating us to trust.

destroying democracy
full of hypocrisy.

Wickedness and evil,
requiring us to fight
with the Truth found . . .
in the Armor of Light!


Ephesians 6:12-13

For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the
whole armour of God, that ye
may be able to withstand in
the evil day, and having done
all, to stand.

Romans 13:12

The night is far spent,
the day is at hand: let us
therefore cast off the
works of darkness,
and let us put on the
armour of light.
