From Anxious To Peaceful ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Be anxious for nothing,
let not anything cause you dread
let go of that worry . . .
filling up in your weary head.

Be concerned for not a thing,
let Jesus take all of your care
let go of all that you fear
and your anxiety He will bear.

Be nervous for naught,
don’t you be stressed out
let go of all your tension
give Jesus all your doubt.

Be not burdened for anything,
let your troubles not alarm
let go of that heavy load
and place it in Jesus’ arms.

For when we’re anxious,
or overly troubled
the peace He has for us . . .
will only become muddled!


Philippians 4:6

“Be anxious for nothing”

I Heard From God Today~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Today Lord You showed me,
just how much you care
by giving me the answer
to my beseeching prayer.

You reached down gently,
my soul You touched
told me onto You
to keep my heart clutched.

Today Lord You reminded me,
of just how good You are
how You would never leave
or be from me very far.

Now all my doubt is gone,
there is no more fear . . .
for now I know it is You
who is always close and near.

Today Lord You showed me,
why I needn’t be dismayed
for in You there’s no reason
to be disheartened or afraid!


Deuteronomy 31:8

And the Lord, he it is that doth
go before thee; he will be with thee,
he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee:
fear not, neither be dismayed.

The Garrett County Historical Museum, Oakland, Maryland

John Cowgill: Stories of the Railroad

Garrett County in the U.S. state of Maryland is the westernmost county in the state. It is often overshadowed by the Chesapeake Bay region where the Star Spangled Banner, the world’s oldest operating airport, the first railroad in the nation, and many wars took place. Garrett County has its own share of history as well as natural areas to include the state’s highest point and the state’s only ski resort. In case you are wondering, the National Road, present day U.S. Route 40, does pass through the northern part of the county. The only interstate is Interstate 68 which goes between Hancock, Maryland and Morgantown, West Virginia. The only other major routes are U.S. Route 50 which crossed at the point of the panhandle and U.S. Route 219. On U.S. Route 219 is where you will find the town of Oakland, the county seat of Garrett County. It is here…

For Faith To Increase ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

For our faith to increase,
for it to reach out and grow
the more about Jesus
we will need to know.

We will need to learn,
about His love and grace
so that we can keep up
on this earth with His pace.

For our faith to take root,
we need to be transformed
and no longer to this world
be into it or conformed.

We will need to put on,
the new man each day
so we can follow after
the Life, Truth and the Way.

For our faith to be grounded,
so to rise above all things
we will need the strength
that only Jesus can bring!


2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge of our Lord
and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now and for ever.

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye…

Flaming Arrows ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Flaming arrows,
fiery darts . . .
aiming each day
at our hearts.

Evil tricks,
wicked attacks
satan’s war on us
never eases or slacks.

Deceptive schemes,
dishonest lies
daily satan tosses
before our eyes.

Seductive snares,
traps menacing
are things each day
we are wrestling.

But we have the armor,
of God to protect . . .
any type of arsenal
on us satan projects!


Ephesians 6:16

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Ephesians 6:11

Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.
