Sticky Note From God 07.31.17


I Do Not Doubt ~

My God has designs,
He will figure this out
He has a plan for me
in this I do not doubt.

Though I’m concerned,
He knows just what to do
and so my Father . . .
in faith I leave this with You.

My God keeps His promises,
He is forever merciful
everything He does
is perfectly purposeful.

Though I may be worried,
I am not afraid
for I know with God
I’m not to be dismayed.

My God is good,
He’s always fair and just
that is why in Him . . .
I choose to place my trust!

~~~~~

Psalm 138:8

“The Lord will perfect
that which concerneth me:
thy mercy, O Lord,
endureth for ever:
forsake not the works
of thine own hands.”

Not Mine, But God’s ~

God’s strength, not mine,
my sin, His forgiveness
God’s power, not mine
my battles, His fight.

God’s desires, not mine,
my needs, His supply
God’s demands, not mine
my weakness, His might.

God’s faithfulness, not mine,
my defiance, His mercy
God’s compassion, not mine
my rebellion, His favor.

God’s plans, not mine,
my bad, His good
God’s time, not mine
my life, His design.

God’s kindness, not mine
my shame, His grace
God’s Son, my salvation
my guilt, His redemption.

God’s strength, not mine,
my hope, His promise
God’s peace, not mine
my trust, His alone!

My Secret Place ~

In that secret place,
is where I long to dwell
it’s when with my soul
all is quiet and well.

Underneath the shadow,
of God’s love and grace
it’s where my heart finds
a quiet resting place.

With the most High,
is where I yearn to be
it’s when in my mind
a calm settles in me.

With the Almighty,
in unmoved solitude
is where I find God’s
merciful quietude.

In that secret place,
is where with God I find
true peace and stillness
for my heart and mind!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1

“He that dwelleth in the
secret place of the most
High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.”

Without Faith ~

 

Without having faith,
God cannot be pleased
without knowing Jesus
eternity can’t be seized.

Without considering,
God’s very existence
over sin and satan
we’ll never have resistance.

Without God’s Word,
His will can’t be known
without the Bible
His ways can’t be shown.

Without having hope,
God we can’t conceive
without searching for Him
we will never believe.

Without having faith,
God cannot be delighted
without finding Jesus . . .
we’ll always be shortsighted!

~~~~~

Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith
it is impossible
to please him:
for he that cometh to God
must believe that he is,
and that he is a rewarder
of them that diligently
seek him.”

You Can Do It ~

You can move that mountain,
if you believe Jesus can . . .
with His help you can turn it
into a pile of rock and sand.

You can dislodge that mountain,
you can displace it
if you have the strength
of the Holy Spirit.

You can take that mountain,
you can beat the odds
you can conquer it
if you trust in God.

You can banish that mountain,
you can make it depart
you can make it go away
if you believe with all your heart.

You can move that mountain,
God’s power you will receive
if in Jesus . . .
you have the faith to believe!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.”

To God Be The Glory ~

To God Be the Glory,
this is why I write . . .
to His honor
for His delight.

Sharing my needs,
up lifting yours
so together our hope
we can explore.

To God be the glory,
to Him be the praise
for knowing His Word
to following His ways.

Praying to God,
learning to be still
so we can understand
His most perfect will.

To God be the glory,
this is why I do write . . .
using the grace given me
to shine His saving light!

The Mercy of God is Powerful ~

The Mercy of God is potent,
it can loosen every chain
holding one of His children
in the torment of their pain.

The mercy of God is powerful,
it breaks the sinful binds
it restores and it can heal
His children’s hearts and minds.

The mercy of God is delivering,
it weakens wickedness’ grasp
it gives His children strength
from satan’s hold, to unclasp.

The mercy of God is freeing,
it separates good from evil
His children it will save
from the schemes of the devil.

The mercy of God is bountiful,
it’s sufficient and plenteous
His children know intimately
just how much, He is gracious!

~~~~~~~~

“The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.”

Too Numerous To Count ~

When I look at the stars,
as I watch their twinkling
I can see God’s blessings
in them glistening.

I see the star of my faith,
shinning so ever bright
for, God has blessed me
with His saving Light.

I see the star of my trust,
hanging in the sky above
for, God has blessed me
with His mercy and love.

I see the star of my hope,
it’s the brightest one
for, God has blessed me
with the grace of His Son.

When I look at the stars,
as they twinkle all about
I’m reminded God’s blessings
are just too numerous to count!

Genesis 15:5

“And he brought him forth abroad,
and said, Look now toward heaven,
and tell the stars, if thou be
able to number them:
and he said unto him,
So shall thy seed be.”

In His Strength ~

When troubles waters,
start to churn and swirl
before my faith . . .
can begin to spiral.

To my Lord,
I take my distress
and with His strength
I am blessed.

When my worries,
start to push and pull
before my faith . . .
becomes void and null.

To my Lord,
I take my praise
and in His strength
I am not fazed.

When troubled waters,
are all I can see . . .
I pray to my Lord
to strengthen me!

Migraines ~

Light flashes,
lines zig-zagging
arms go limp
eyes starts sagging.

Dizzy and woozy,
room is a spinning
migraine headache
is just beginning.

Close my eyes,
go with the flow
sit back and watch
the light show.

Throbbing starts,
take migraine pill
try to relax
and just be still.

Shut off lights,
turn down sound
as head goes . . .
pound, pound, pound.

Rockin and reeling,
from the pain
oh, how I wish
to end this migraine.

If you suffer,
just like I do . . .
please let me know
so I can pray for you!

God Has A Time For Everything ~

God has a time,
for everything
and for every one
new season’s He brings.

There’s a time of peace,
and a time of bleakness
a time of spiritual health
and a time of sickness.

There’s a time to rise up,
and a time to regress
a time of fearfulness
and a time to onward press.

There’s a time of hope,
and a time of testing
a time of great faith
and a time of wrestling.

There’s a time to praise,
and a time to mourn
a time to rejoice
and a time to be reborn.

For every thing,
God has a season
and it’s not up to us . . .
to doubt His reason!
