Sticky Note From God 04.30.17


God Can’t Be Contained ~

God cannot be boxed-in,
He can’t be contained
you cannot control Him
His power can’t be restrained.

God cannot be confined,
He can’t be enclosed
you cannot out-wit Him
His will can’t be opposed.

God cannot be hedged-in,
He can’t be obstructed
you cannot thwart Him
His Word can’t be corrupted.

God cannot be restricted,
He can’t be curtailed
you cannot halt Him
His plans can’t be derailed.

God cannot be confined,
His power can’t be blocked
His judgements cannot  . . .
nor will they be stopped!

Isaiah 14:27

and who shall turn it back?”

Man’s Plans ~

You may have plans,
you want to pursue
you may have ideas
brand spanking new.

But God’s purposes,
are the ones to prevail
and His intentions
you won’t be able to derail.

You may have a vision,
you want to maintain
you may have dreams
you want to attain.

But God’s designs,
cannot be thwarted
His will for your life
cannot be aborted.

You may have plans,
but only God will decide
the steps you will take
when He is your guide!

Be Patient With God ~

Be patient with God,
He knows what He’s doing
sometimes to our prayers
He takes His time moving.

Be patient with God,
enjoy the time waiting
for the answers to our prayers
He’s carefully delegating.

Be patient with God,
He is working out His plan
you will need a lot of faith
to fill in the time span.

Be patient with God,
give Him the time He needs
not all of His answers
come at rapid speeds.

Be patient with God,
trust Him and be still
He’s working out for you
what is His perfect will.

Be patient with God,
your times are in His hands
and for you He is working on
His awesome, amazing plans!

God Knows Our Potential ~

God knows our potential,
before we even do
to our capabilities
He has a pristine view.

God sees our weakness,
He knows our every fear
He understands we need
the way to be made clear.

God sees our strengths,
He knows our abilities
He has eternal insight
into all our possibilities.

God sees our doubt,
He knows we’re human
He knows we need His might
to get us up and movin’.

God knows our potential,
He sees what we’re made of
He knows all we need is . . .
His guidance from above!

Judges 6:12-14

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him,
and said unto him, The Lord is with thee,
thou mighty man of valour.

And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord,
if the Lord be with us, why then is all
this befallen us? and where be all his
miracles which our fathers told us of,
saying, Did not the Lord bring us up
from Egypt? but now the Lord hath
forsaken us, and delivered us into
the hands of the Midianites.

And the Lord looked upon him, and said,
Go in this thy might, and thou shalt
save Israel from the hand of the
Midianites: have not I sent thee?”

Be Wary ~

The wilderness can be,
a frightening place
unless we have a sufficient
supply of God’s grace.

For in the wilderness,
we will be tested
and just like Jesus
we too, will be tempted.

When we’re in a place,
we don’t want to be
when alone with danger
we need to get on our knees.

We need to draw near,
to God in prayer
for He knows our adversary
is with us out there.

The wilderness can be,
lonely and scary
and to satan’s tricks
we must be wary!

Mark 1:13

” And he was there
in the wilderness
forty days,
tempted of Satan;

A Critical Spirit ~

A critical spirit,
fights and bickers
you can see it in those
who are nit-pickers.

They’re known to be,
quite quarrelsome
to other’s they are
more than irksome.

A critical spirit,
can be harsh and cruel
their tongues are always
in some kind of duel.

They are selfish,
it’s their way or none
they do not care
who they hurt or shun.

A critical spirit,
can be transformed
when to God’s love
it is conformed!

I Trust God ~

I trust God,
His Word I heed
I trust Him
for whatever I need.

I trust God,
when I say His name
I trust Him
to remain the same.

I trust God,
for His goodness
I trust Him
for His kindness.

I trust God,
when  I pray
I trust Him
to guide my way.

I trust God,
to give me shelter
I trust Him
to be my helper.

I trust God,
my life to control
for I trust Him . . .
with all my heart and soul!

Walking With the Godless ~

When you walk,
from God’s will away
you’ll be on the road
to spiritual decay.

For, satan will come,
with his distorted views
so your mind he can
confound and confuse.

When you walk,
with the godless
your spiritual life
will become a mess.

For, the ungodly,
give worldly advice
to follow it only leads
to spiritual demise.

When you walk,
with the sinful
you better become
for your soul fearful.

For surely to walk,
with the ungodly
your spiritual life . . .
we become sloppy!

~~~~~

“Blessed is the man that walketh
not in the counsel of the ungodly,

Wrestling With God ~

Some people wrestle,
with God’s will
some find it so hard
to wait and be still.

But, those who stop,
their endless struggling
will find God’s will
isn’t really so puzzling.

Some people scuffle,
when disappointed
some end up being
with God disjointed.

But, those who quit,
their constant battling
will find God’s ways
aren’t really so baffling.

Some people wrestle,
with God and His ways
but, those who trust Him
are blessed all their days!

~~~~~~

Genesis 32:24-26

” And Jacob was left alone;
and there wrestled a man
with him until the breaking
of the day.

And when he saw that he
prevailed not against him,
he touched the hollow of
his thigh; and the hollow
of Jacob’s thigh was out
of joint,
as he wrestled with him.

And he said, Let me go,
for the day breaketh.
And he said, I will
not let thee go
except thou bless me.”

Yet, Another Roadblock ~

Up against,
yet, another roadblock
problems have you in
a dreaded headlock?

Well, don’t quit yet,
God will help you
and over this barrier
He’ll get you through.

Up against,
one more obstacle
worries have you thinking
this one is impossible.

Well don’t stop yet,
God will draw you near
and through this hurdle
with Him you’ll clear.

Up against,
yet another brick wall
well don’t you forget . . .
on God’s name to call!

Give God Your Worries ~

give-god-your-worries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Some people worry,
about anything
some get anxious
over everything.

Some wrestle daily,
with their troubles
some nightly fight
with their struggles.

But, those who wait,
on the Lord are still
the worries they have
their peace cannot steal.

They cast their anxiety,
onto Jesus each day
they don’t fret about
things coming their way.

Some people worry,
about anything
but, those who trust God
give Him their everything!

I Love Jesus ~

I love Jesus,
this I’ll never deny
His love for me
forever on I’ll rely.

I trust Jesus,
He trusts me . . .
He’s my anchor
on life’s stormy sea.

I delight in Jesus,
He delights in me
one day in heaven
we are going to be.

I believe in Jesus,
He believes in me
He gives me faith
in what I can’t see.

I’m a friend of Jesus,
He’s befriended me
no greater love . . .
will I ever see!

Bursts of Spring ~

Bursts of Spring,
are in the air . . .
tiny glimpses of
days warm and fair.

A tree bud,
a poppy bloom
heals the ache
of winter’s gloom.

Bursts of Spring,
fill my sights
to warm my thoughts
on still cold nights.

A bird’s faint song,
a mostly blue sky
the last snow flake
to float on by.

Little-bitty bursts of Spring,
God is sending  . . .
for it’s the season we need
His loving tending!

Son Rise ~

Lord, open up eyes,
and hearts too
so others may today . . .
come to know You.

Open up their minds,
let Your love sink in
so others may today
be forgiven of their sin.

Open up their ears,
let them really hear
the reason Your Father
even sent You here.

Open up their souls,
to Your eternal grace
so others may today
Your life in theirs embrace.

Father, open up souls,
ears, hearts and eyes
so others may today . . .
see Your glorious Son rise!
