Sticky Note From God 06.30.17


Decluttering ~

Today I’m decluttering,
my heart and my mind
dumping all the things
I keep dragging behind.

I’ll be getting rid of,
any bitterness I see
and if there be envy
I’ll purge it right out of me.

I’ll toss away the guilt,
dispose of the shame
free any need to point
to others any blame.

I’ll remove all the fear,
eradicate any doubt
eliminate the dread
so to block anxiety out.

Today, I’m decluttering,
so I can stay on track
I’ll destroy the dead weight
that’s been holding me back!

~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1

“Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so
easily beset us, and let us
run with patience the race
that is set before us,”

Jesus To The Rescue ~

Lord, today I’m feeling,
a little off course
like a ship without . . .
a navigation source.

I feel like I’m drifting,
in a sea of doubt
and I need Your guidance
to find my way out.

Things are a little foggy,
my head is feeling light
and these waves of fear
I’ll need Your help to fight.

I feel I’ll soon get caught,
like a fish on a hook
for satan’s traps and snares
are everywhere I look.

Lord, today I’m feeling,
like a ship lost at sea
so I’m counting on You . . .
to come and rescue me!

“Then they cry unto the Lord
in their trouble, and he
bringeth them out
of their distresses.”

Walking the Talk ~

I really like talking,
all about the walk . . .
but, I’m not always great
at walking the talk.

For, often I stumble,
on the words I say
and my walk falters
as I talk along the way.

I find it easy to talk,
about what to do
but, sometimes Lord
my walk isn’t in You.

For, when I’m tested,
my walk betrays my talk
especially when I think
Your will I can balk.

I really like talking,
all about the walk
but, at times I need help
walking . . . what I talk!

Romans 8:1

“There is therefore now
no condemnation to them
which are in Christ Jesus,
who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.”

Get a Grip on Fear ~

Whenever fear begins,
messing with my head
when it fills up my heart
with anxiety and dread.

It’s when I go to Jesus,
to still the storm inside
soon the waves of fear
calmly start to subside.

Whenever fear grips me,
squeezing my very soul
when with it I battle
to take back control.

It’s when I go to Jesus,
for that stillness exceeding
soon the trembling I feel
starts peacefully receding.

Whenever fear creeps in,
just as it starts to invade
it’s when I go to Jesus . . .
for He makes me not afraid!

~~~~~~

Luke 8:23-25

“But as they sailed he fell asleep:
and there came down a storm of wind
on the lake; and they were filled
with water, and were in jeopardy.

And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish.
Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water:
and they ceased, and there was a calm.

And he said unto them,
Where is your faith?
And they being afraid wondered,
saying one to another,
What manner of man is this!
for he commandeth even the
winds and water, and they obey him.”

The Heart that Cries ~

The heart cries,
from deep within
with the tears of joy
from the shame of sin.

It knows to God,
it deserves nothing
but, has found now
He is its everything.

The heart weeps,
deep from the soul
with tears of joy
God now consoles.

It recognizes,
the need for God’s favor
sees His mercy through
the grace of a Savior.

For, the heart mournful,
over its evil sins . . .
is the heart that Jesus
saves and wins!

2 Corinthians 7:10

“For godly sorrow
worketh repentance
to salvation
not to be repented of:
but the sorrow of the
world worketh death.

Finding the Truth ~

When the Word of God,
is your daily bread
your spiritual hunger
will be nourished and fed.

When in your Bible,
you each day abide
your spiritual thirst
will amply be supplied.

When in the Word,
you are immersed
God’s power in you
will be dispersed.

When the Scriptures,
your read each day
freedom you will find
on the righteous way.

When you saturate,
your heart and mind
in the Word of God . . .
the truth you will find!

~~~~~~~

John 8:31-32

“Then said Jesus to those Jews
which believed on him,
If ye continue in my word,
then are ye my disciples indeed;

And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.”

Tweet This ~

I’ve a message,
that I’ll be texting
to all my friends
my faith I’ll be flexing.

I will make it quick,
maybe just tweet it
I know the words
in the criteria will fit.

I will make it fast,
just a few characters
my message will meet
all the parameters.

It won’t take too long,
to tweet or text if off
some will understand it
other’s may just scoff.

It’s really quite simple,
this message I will send
Jesus loves you
and died to be your friend!

John 15:13

“Greater love hath no man
than this, that a man
lay down his life
for his friends.”

Once Again Reborn ~

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:23

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth
for ever.”
