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

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!

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.”

Waiting ~

Lord, You have given me,
these mighty eagles wings
said they’d give me strength
in the problems life brings.

You said for me to wait,
for Your Son to return
until such time to give
You all of my concern.

You said there would be,
no weariness or fatigue
to wait until the day
the crown of life I’ll receive.

You said I would walk,
without ever fainting
to focus on the future hope
You have for me awaiting.

Lord, You have given me,
these powerful eagle wings
and so I patiently wait . . .
for the newness of all things!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40.31

“But they that wait
upon the Lord shall
renew their strength;
they shall mount up
with wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

Where the Heart Moors ~

Faith that encourages,
faith that inspires
is a faith in God
that for Him is on fire.

Faith that is calm,
faith that is still
is a faith in God
that seeks His will.

Faith that is small,
faith that is great
is a faith in God
that never abates.

Faith that is strong,
faith that is meek
is a faith in God
that never grows weak.

Faith that rises,
faith that soars
is a faith in God
where the heart moors!

God Comforts the Mournful ~

Some people appear,
strong on the outside
when really they’re falling
apart on the inside.

Some people pretend,
they have it all together
some contend alone
any storm they can weather.

Some people claim,
they don’t need any aid
some camouflage
just how much their afraid.

Some people look,
happy and joyful
some disguise so well
a heart, sorrowful.

Some people are indeed,
strong on the outside
for, God comforts those
who mourn on the inside!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

I Came Into This World A Sinner ~

I came into the world,
with not one single thing
and when I go to see Jesus
there’s nothing I can bring.

For, my treasures on earth,
will rust from corruption
but, in heaven they’ve been
everlasting from conception.

I have a lot of stuff,
making my life comfortable
but, they are all to God . . .
worthless and corruptible.

For, God has for me,
eternal life as my treasure
where peace and joy
will flow without measure.

I came into this world,
as a sinner, but I will leave
as someone who in Jesus
has trusted and believed!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust
doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Leaving My Footprint ~

Lord, may the footprint,
on this world I leave
be the steps of one
who in You believed.

May it be Your imprint,
long after I am gone
that keeps others
to You being drawn.

Lord, may the footprint,
be a lasting imprint
of one who lived a life
full of the Holy Spirit.

May Your impression,
be left in all I say
let the words I write
continue hearts to sway.

May the footprint I leave,
be not a carbon one . . .
let it be the faithful steps
of one who followed Your Son!

A World Out of Control ~

In a world,
spinning out of control
I am so glad I gave
Jesus, my heart and soul.

In a world,
filled with so much confusion
I am so very happy
I’ve the Holy Spirit’s infusion.

In a world,
full of panic and chaos
I’m so blessed to have
God, as my peaceful oasis.

In a world,
that is lustful and greedy
I’m so thankful I can bank on
God’s favor, grace and mercy.

In a world,
that will meet a fiery end
I’m so grateful . . .
Jesus, is my eternal Friend!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 20:7-9

“And when the thousand years are expired,
Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

And shall go out to deceive the nations
which are in the four quarters of the earth,
Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle:
the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth,
and compassed the camp of the saints about,
and the beloved city:
and fire came down from God
out of heaven, and devoured them.”

Storing Your Treasures ~

If you store your treasures,
in heaven up above . . .
you will become wealthy
in peace, joy and love.

If you are poor,
in a world full of richness
you will be loaded
in hope and forgiveness.

If you are pure,
in thought and in deed
your spiritual assets
will exceed all you need.

If you are merciful,
around the smugly proud
your heart with God’s grace
you will be endowed.

If your treasures,
aren’t worldly plush
the ones in heaven
will be forever flush!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”
