Sticky Note From God 09.30.17


A Changed Heart ~

Change my heart Lord,
till it reflects only You
till all I can see
is Your image inside me.

Change the way it beats,
till it throbs after You
till its keeps pace
with Your love and grace.

Change my heart Lord,
til it keeps time with Yours
till with Yours it’s in rhythm
pulsating with Your wisdom.

Change the way is flutters,
til it adapts to You
till it can adjust
so it may always trust.

Change my heart Lord,
til with Yours its fine tuned
til it is conformed . . .
so I can be transformed!

~~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

“A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart
out of your flesh, and I will give
you an heart of flesh.”

Don’t Be a Sellout ~

You can tell God you’re sorry,
ask Him for forgiveness . . .
but, without true repentance
sin, still will be your weakness.

You can try to conquer sin,
but, it is impossible to do
unless you have the Holy Spirit
and His power helping you.

You can beg and you can plea,
for your sins to be forgiven
but, without turning from them
to sin, you’ll still be driven.

You can try to stay away,
from all evil and wickedness
but, without the Light in your life
you’ll still be drawn to the darkness.

You can cry, you can weep,
over your besetting sin
but, without true remorse
over them you’ll never win.

You can try to keep sin at bay,
you can try to cut it out . . .
but, without true repentance
to sin you will still sellout!

but sinners to repentance.”

If We Train Our Children~

If we train our children,
God, to always fear
then they will sense
His Spirit close and near.

If we raise our children,
to have Godly restraint
then with this world
they’ll not want to acquaint.

If we educate our children,
God, to always love
then they will lay
their treasures above.

If we teach our children,
to follow God’s plans
then they will know
their times are in His hands.

If we instruct our children,
to follow God’s ways
then His laws they’ll obey
for the rest of their days.

If we train our children,
right from the start
then from His ways . . .
they will not depart!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 22.6

Train up a child
in the way he should go:
and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.

In The Lord’s House ~

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to forever dwell
there is no way . . .
I’m willing to go to hell.

For, my sins I’ve confess,
repented and turned from
by grace through faith is how
I’ll enter His kingdom.

In Your house Lord,
is where I want to be
so, for the rest of my days
I’ll faithfully follow Thee.

For, the world is full darkness,
but, You have brought me Light
Your mercy and goodness
are now always in my sight.

In the my Father’s house,
I’m going to live forever
oh, how I cannot wait . . .
for us to be together!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:6

“Surely goodness and mercy
shall follow me all the days

The Path of Truth ~

Lord, today I need
to know what is Your will
and until You show me . . .
I’ll just wait and be still.

I need Your guidance,
for the road ahead
I need the assurance
I will be Spirit lead.

Lord, today I need,
to heed what You say
so on the path of truth
I will be able to stay.

I need to learn to wait,
for the right directions
I need You to teach me
how to pay attention.

Lord, today I need to know,
what You’d have me to do
for I don’t want to walk . . .
down this road without You!

Prayer Requires ~

Our prayers require,
our perseverance
and a thankful heart
to fuel our endurance.

For our supplications,
to a God who knows all
need from grateful lips
to unceasingly fall.

When we’ve no words,
to utter or to speak
when our groanings turn
ineffective and weak.

The Holy Spirit,
for us will intercede
and an indebted heart
we are going to need.

Our prayers require,
our praise and thanksgiving
to a God that’s always been
trusting and forgiving!

~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth
our infirmities:
for we know not what we should pray
for as we ought: but the Spirit itself
maketh intercession for us with
groanings which cannot be uttered.

My Cup Is Never Empty ~


My cup is never empty,
is it full to the brim
with wonderful thoughts
of starting today with Him.

For I am filled,
with all of God’s goodness
as I have found my true rest
in His mercy and forgiveness.

My cup is running over,
it’s never half gone
for I fill it each day
with the Light of the Son.

If I were to need a refill,
of God’s grace and love
all I ever have to do . . .
is look to the heaven above.

Is your cup ready,
to be filled with peace
then today make sure . . .
for your Bible you reach!

I am Not Afraid ~

I am not afraid,
of the evil things I see
even my own death
will not put a scare in me.

For, You my Lord,
are always near by
and will always be
until the day I die.

I am not dismayed,
by the valley ahead
for I believe through it
I will be Spirit lead.

For, when the time comes,
for me to go on home
it’ll be the happiest day
I have ever known.

I am not afraid,
I have nothing to fear
for Jesus my heart
will comfort and cheer!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me.”

How Troubling to God ~

I wonder how troubling,
to God, that it is . .
that when we need advice
we don’t go to Him, for His?

I wonder if He scratches,
His head in amazement
to how with waiting on Him
we’ve become so impatient.

I wonder how disturbing,
to God, that it is . . .
that when we need strength
we don’t go to Him, for His

I wonder if He shakes,
His head in utter confusion
as to why we think we can do
anything without His inclusion.

I wonder how distressing,
to God, that it is . . .
that when we need direction
we don’t go to Him, for His?

I wonder if He moves,
His head from side to side
thinking how much we need
to learn in Him to abide.

I wonder how we would be,
if in God we would just trust
I wonder if then we’d see . . .
just how much He loves us!

that trust in him.”

God Knows All About Us ~

God knows,
each one of us
He knows if we doubt
or in Him trust.

He knows our names,
each and every one
He knows those who put
their faith in His Son.

God knows,
all of our needs
He knows if we believe
in His awesome deeds.

He knows our troubles,
the sum of our woes
He knows those who will
follow where He shows.

God knows,
our comings and goings
our future and our fate
He knows those heading
straight for the gate!

Adding To Your Faith ~

Once you have faith,
you mustn’t stop there
you need to add to it
more things with care.

To your faith add virtue,
and you will be pure
for faith and virtue
is ungodly living’s cure.

To virtue add knowledge,
it is the wisdom of life
for faith with knowledge
will cause you no strife.

To knowledge add self-control
in all the things you do
for faith and self-control
lets the light of God shine through.

To self-control add perseverance,
you will need it to faithfully run
for faith and perseverance
is the only way the race is won.

To perseverance add godliness,
in all that you say and do
then charity and brotherly kindness
will ooze right out of you!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 1:5-7

“And beside this, giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue knowledge;

And to knowledge temperance;
and to temperance patience;
and to patience godliness;

And to godliness brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness charity.

When In Need Of Protection ~

When I need protection,
from the world outside
I go to the One . . .
who in my heart abides.

Jesus is my security,
He is my Strength and Shield
He’s the only One to whom
my life, I’m willing to yield.

When I am afraid,
when I need a hiding place
I go to the One . . .
who has sufficient grace.

Jesus is my Stronghold,
He is my Rock and Defender
He is the only One to whom
my fears I will surrender.

When I need a shielding,
when I need protecting
I go to my Savior . . .
for Refuge and sheltering!

So Many Needs ~

So many needs,
so many cares
causing His sheep
so much despair.

When will they seek,
when will they come
to the One who will
bear every one?

So many problems,
so many concerns
causing His sheep
thoughts to churn.

When will they know,
when will they find
Jesus is waiting
to comfort their mind?

So many doubts,
so many questions
causing His sheep
bouts of depression.

When will they see,
when will they hear
Jesus is wanting
to calm their fear?

So many defeated,
so many gone astray
so many we can lead . . .
back to Jesus today!

~~~~~~~

“All we like sheep

On The Righteous Path ~

Jesus leads me,
on the righteous path
He steers me from knowing
His Father’s wrath.

He wants nothing more,
than for me to be
faithful and trustful
as He guides me.

Jesus leads me,
for the sake of His name
He wants me to see
how without Him I’m lame.

He knows I am weak,
feeble at best
He knew without grace
I’d have no eternal rest.

Jesus leads me,
it is I who must follow
for my life absent of Him
is meaningless and hollow!

Psalm 23.3

He leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness
for his name’s sake.”

Stir our hearts Lord,
awaken our desire

all that You require.

Stir up our prayer life,

keep us on our knees
lest we become stagnate.

Stir our minds Lord,
excite us to press on
keep us watchful
till the race is won.

Stir up our faith life,
arouse our holy dullness
so we may be filled with
the Holy Spirit’s fullness.

Stir our souls Lord,
evoke a new awakening
let us have a resurgence
of Your Spirit’s enlightening!

“O send out thy light and thy truth:

that inhabiteth eternity,
whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high
and holy place, with him also that is
of a contrite and humble spirit,
to revive the spirit of the humble,
and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
