The Love Of God – April 4, 2020

The Love Of God ~

By Deborah Ann

The love of God,
has gotten me past
valleys too deep . . .
mountains so vast.

He help me over,
my fear and doubt
by my side He stayed
never walked out.

The love of God,
has brought me across
waters so high . . .
without being tossed.

He gave me hope,
my worries He stilled
with His ongoing peace
my heart was filled.

The love of God,
has gotten me through
things I thought . . .
were impossible to do!

A PEP TALK – MARCH 26, 2020

       A Pep Talk ~

      By Deborah Ann

We all need endurance,

to run the faithful race

We all need encouragement,

to keep our goal in sight

we all need the power

of the Holy Spirit’s might.

We all need perseverance,

to help us to keep pressing

we all need more joy

to keep us from stressing.

We all need patience,

in these trying of times

we all need godly virtue’s

so not to cross the fine lines.

We all need a pep talk,

as the faithful race we run

we all need to hear each day

it is our’s to be won!

we all need the strength

found in God’s grace.

Glory Hallelujah ~

By Deborah Ann

He's Alive ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He is risen,
glory hallelujah
He has risen
triumphant alleluia.

He is alive,
blissful elation
He is alive
joyful celebration.

He is risen,
peaceful expectation
He has risen
eternal transformation.

He is here,
cheerful jubilation
He is here
hopeful affirmation.

Jesus is risen,
just like He had said
Jesus is alive
no longer is He dead!
