Sticky Note From God 12.31.17


If We’re to Shine The Light ~

If we’re to shine the Light,
then why more like Jesus aren’t we
why is His reflection in us . . .
so hard for others to see?

If we’re to act as the Light,
then why don’t we share
why to the Good News
don’t we make more people aware?

If we’re to live in the Light,
then why aren’t we a witness
why aren’t we spreading the truth
to those still living in darkness?

If we’re to be the Light,
then where is our power
why do we let satan . . .
our strength erode and devour?

If we walk in the Light,
our hope would radiate
and Jesus’ love for the world
we would always advocate!

~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

The Thunderous Voice of God ~

If you could hear God’s voice,
you’d hear the power and the might
behind each word and syllable
making the universe take on flight.

You would hear Him tell the sun,
it was time to shine and rise
you could listen as He ordered it
to dip into the darkening skies.

You would hear Him tell the seasons,
what time to start and when to cease
you could listen as they obeyed Him
without rebellion but in peace.

You would hear Him tell the rain,
when it was time to turn to snow
you could listen to their respect for Him
as each little flake His voice knows.

If you could hear God’s voice,
you would know He was in control
not just of the universe . . .
but, of every single heart and soul!

~~~~~~~~~

Job 37:5-6

“God thundereth marvellously
with his voice;
great things doeth he,
which we cannot comprehend.

For he saith to the snow,
Be thou on the earth;
likewise to the small rain,
and to the great rain
of his strength.”

A New Foundation ~

This coming New Year,
I’m redoing my Foundation
for it has started to creak
and its turning my faith weak.

I am going to rebuild it,
from the ground floor straight on up
Jesus will be the Corner Stone
so by every wind, I won’t get blown.

This coming New Year,
I’m getting back to the basics
all the wood, hay and stubble I keep
I’ll put into a rubbish-heap.

I’ll get back to the Gospel Truths,
then I’ll lay them upon the Rock
I’ll make sure they’re God proven
not ones construed by some human.

This coming New Year,
my Foundation will be transformed
and I pray it will bear the fire . . .
so I’ll be saved when I expire!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:20

“And are built upon the foundation
of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ himself being
the chief corner stone;”

1 Corinthians 3:11-15

“For other foundation can no man lay
than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Now if any man build upon this foundation
gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

Every man’s work shall be made manifest:
for the day shall declare it, because
it shall be revealed by fire; and the
fire shall try every man’s work of
what sort it is.

If any man’s work abide which he
hath built thereupon,
he shall receive a reward.

If any man’s work shall be burned,
he shall suffer loss: but he himself
shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

Faith Like A Thief ~

Give me faith Lord,
like the thief on the cross
for I am just a sinner
who is helpless and lost.

Intercede for Me,
from Your seat on the throne
plead with Your Father
heaven should be my home.

Give me faith Lord,
filled with Your grace
let Your love for me
my evil heart embrace.

 Remember me Lord,
when Your kingdom I enter
so in paradise with You
we can be for ever.

Give me faith Lord,
just like that remorseful thief
for when I die . . .
let it be, in utter belief!

~~~~~~~

Luke 23:40-43

“But the other answering rebuked him,
saying, Dost not thou fear God,
seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

And we indeed justly;
for we receive the due reward
of our deeds: but this man
hath done nothing amiss.

And he said unto Jesus, Lord,
remember me when thou comest
into thy kingdom.

And Jesus said unto him,
Verily I say unto thee,
Today shalt thou be with
me in paradise.”

The Object of My Faith ~

The object of my faith,
is Jesus and no other . . .
with anything or one else
I don’t even want to bother.

For, all other devices,
are just diversions
and all other gospels
are just perversions.

So, I keep my focus on,
what is my eternal goal
not that which will bring
damnation to my soul.

For, this world is full of,
all kinds of spiritualness
but, in Jesus I have found
truth and righteousness.

Jesus is the only object,
in which to put our trust
for, faith without His grace
alone cannot save us!

~~~~~~~

John 1:29

“The next day John seeth
Jesus coming unto him,
and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh away
the sin of the world.”

Lord, Be Not Far From Me ~

Lord, be not far from me,
be not faraway . . .
come close and hold me
be one with me today.

Lord, be not removed,
be not from me too far
come close and lead me
be my bright guiding star.

Lord, be not remote,
be not from me far apart
come close and help me
be with me in soul and heart.

Lord, be not far or distant,
be not from me isolated
come close and guide me
let us never be separated.

Lord, be not faraway,
be not from me afar
come close and take me . . .
right to where You are!

~~~~~~~~~~

“Hide not thy face far from me;
put not thy servant away in anger:

The Morning Star,

A child, a babe,

For, to all of those,
who trust and believe
His love and grace

so on us God’s mercy
He could bestow.

The Morning Star,
still shines bright today
to Light the path
of the Life and Way!

God’s Gift of Love ~

God's Gift of Love ~ CHRSTian poetry by deborah ann

A manger’s crib,
a virgin’s birth
a Babe is born
peace on earth.

Angels above,
glory, glory sing
over the coming
of the King of Kings.

A new hope,
a new day
a Savior born
to show the way.

Wise men travel,
from afar
to find the truth
behind the Star.

A new covenant,
a new joy
all wrapped up in
Mary’s little Boy!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:10-11

“When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him: and when
they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto him gifts; gold,
and frankincense and myrrh.”

Staying On the Righteous Path ~

I’ve traveled many roads,
much to my dismay . . .
I walked along the path
of sin and decay.

I’ve climbed over mountains,
in my own egotistical pride
I walked in valley’s deep
with conceit as my guide.

But, I grew so very weary,
on the pathway’s of leeway
and the latitude I gave myself
on my soul began to weigh.

So, I began a new journey,
one that was Spirit lead
and now all the other routes
fill me with fear and dread.

For in God’s Word,
I discovered the path
guaranteed to keep me
from knowing God’s wrath!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 2:20

“That thou mayest walk
in the way of good men,
and keep the paths
of the righteous.”

I’ll Be That Light ~

This CHRISTmas,
I will be that light
my love for Jesus . . .
will shine ever bright.

I will be the one,
who’s hope will glow
my love for Jesus . . .
from my heart will flow.

This CHRISTmas,
my joy will beam
my love for Jesus . . .
off my soul will gleam.

I will be that person,
who’s faith will rise
my love for Jesus . . .
will illuminate my eyes.

This CHRISTmas,
my light will glisten
I’ll not be ashamed
saying I’m a CHRISTian!

God’s Free Gift To All ~

God gave to all a gift,
a present like no other
some openly receive it
others with it don’t bother.

Some take their whole lives,
to unwrap God’s loving gift
some from the get go
don’t believe it will ever fit.

Some accept it openly,
some keep it under-wraps
some make it their whole life
some think it is just a trap.

Some take their time,
to understand what’s inside
some instantly push the gift
of grace and mercy aside.

God gave to all a free Gift,
of His begotten, beloved Son
and He desires it to be . .
received by each and everyone!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:18

“Therefore as by the offence
of one judgment came upon
all men to condemnation;
even so by the righteousness
of one the free gift
came upon all men unto
justification of life.”

Staying Focused On Jesus ~

Oh, do I have troubles,
boy, do I have cares
everyday on my nerves
they gnaw and wear.

But, I don’t let them,
eat away at me . . .
instead to my Father
I go on bended knee.

Oh, do I have worries,
boy, do I have woes
everyday on my peace
they want to impose.

But, I don’t let them,
take their toll on me . . .
instead I go to Jesus
and in His arms I flee.

Oh, do I have problems,
boy, do I have concerns
but, I just keep my focus . . .
on the day Jesus returns!

which is but for a moment,

Why Do You Celebrate CHRISTmas ~

Why do you celebrate CHRISTmas,
what does it do for you . . .
does the real meaning of it
hold for you what is true?

For, CHRISTmas is God’s Gift,
of His love for one and all
He sent His Son so you would
receive salvation’s call.

What do you want from CHRISTmas,
what are you looking for
do you not know by now
you can’t find it in a store?

For, Jesus was born to be,
the Savior of the world
and onto His shoulders
every sin, God unfurled.

You may think you don’t need Him,
but, He will always want you . . .
to ask Him for forgiveness
so He can make all things new.

Why do you celebrate CHRISTmas,
what does it really mean to you?
For, CHRISTmas is only about
a Savior’s dying love for you!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:11

“For unto you is born this day
in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.”

1 Peter 2:24

in his own body on the tree,
that we, being dead to sins,
should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed.”

Soon there will be,
another New Year . . .
twelve more months
will again be here.

I don’t know about you,
but my, how time flies
years seem to pass . . .
like a blink of my eyes.

Speaking about blinking,
I cannot help thinking
will this be the year . . .
I’ll witness that twinkling.

For, I know any second,
Jesus could come again
and to this all I can say . . .
is Amen and Amen.

My only new resolution,
for the approaching year
is to keep my ears open . . .
so the last trump I can hear!!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:52

In a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trump:
for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.

The greatest Gift,

that sin forgives.

For, it’s full of grace,

The greatest Gift,

that lasts all lifelong.

For, eternal life,

Wonderful present.

So if you don’t know,
