Sticky Note From God ~02.28.18~


No Rocket-Scientist Needed ~

It doesn’t take,
a rocket-scientist
it doesn’t take
the sciences.

Faith is just,
an act of trust
it’s believing
God loves us.

It doesn’t take,
a philosopher
it doesn’t take
an astrologer.

Faith is easier,
than you think
for grace is . . .
the saving-link.

It doesn’t take,
an anthropologist
it doesn’t take
a theologist.

Faith is believing,
Jesus died for you
faith is grace . . .
pure and true!

Ephesians 2:8

“For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that
not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:”

God’s Immeasurable Love ~

God’s love for me,
is unfathomable . . .
for, His love for me
is immeasurable.

 His love rises,
higher than the sky
it goes further than . . .
any space shuttle can fly.

God’s  love for me
is unbelievable . . .
for, His love for me
is undeniable.

His love goes deeper,
than the ocean’s floor
it goes further than . . .
any miner can dig for ore.

God’s love for me
is unexplainable . . .
for, His love for me
is unconceivable.

His love is wider,
than the whole universe
it goes further than . . .
any light the stars can disperse.

There’s nothing about me,
that is lovable . . .
yet, God’s love for me
is unstoppable!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:17-18

“That Christ may dwell
in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted
and grounded in love,

May be able to comprehend
with all saints what is
the breadth, and length,
and depth, and height;

Stop And Pray Each Day ~

 

Each day we need,
to stop and pray
and listen to . . .
what God has to say.

We need to pray,
for His mercy anew
so temptation
we can subdue.

We need to pray,
for more grace
so the enemy
we can face.

We need to pray,
for His favor
if our faith
should waiver.

We Need to pray,
for His healing balm
to help keeps us
still and calm.

We need to pray,
for His power
so we’ll have victory
no matter the hour.

We need to pray,
for His wisdom
to give unto us
a clear vision.

Each day we need,
to continually pray . . .
for we never know
what’ll come our way!

If Our Right Eye Offends ~

If our right eye offends,
then why do we keep looking
if it’s not to desire things of the world
then why are they still so alluring?

If our right eye offends,
then why do we look with the left one
if it’s not to regard the lusts of the world
then why is it not focusing on the Son?

If the right eye offends,
then why do we seek what’s morally wrong
if it’s not to be conformed to the world
then why after it do we still long?

If our right eye offends,
then why do we not look the other way
if it’s not to seek the world’s riches
then why to them do we still sway?

If our right eye offends,
then why does it roam all about
if it sees things so alluring and deceitful . . .
then why don’t we just pluck it out!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 4:19

“And the cares of this world,
and the deceitfulness of riches,
and the lusts of other things
entering in, choke the word,
and it becometh unfruitful.

Matthew 5:29

“And if thy right eye offend thee,
pluck it out, and cast it from thee:
for it is profitable for thee that
one of thy members should perish,
and not that thy whole body should
be cast into hell.”

Humility ~

Humility ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If you want humility,
you will need to find
a way to unveil haughtiness
in your heart and mind.

For, when you reveal,
the smugness deep within
humility will start . . .
to trickle right on in.

If you want humility,
you will need to see
just how self-absorbed
you can truly be.

For, when you uncover,
your self-righteousness
humility with expose . . .
God’s righteousness.

If you want humility,
you’ll need to discover
just how arrogant
you can be to others.

For, when you explore,
your self-obsessed feelings
humility will have you . . .
before God kneeling!

~~~~~

Proverbs 18:12

“Before destruction the heart
of man is haughty,
and before honour is humility.”

Wit’s End ~

When faced with a dilemma,
and you don’t know what to do
when pastors and counselors
no longer are able to help you.

When you have exhausted,
all of your family and friends
when you’ve tried everything
but, to your problem there’s no end.

When there’s no one else,
to whom your gut you can spill
and you still need to know
for yourself, what is God’s will.

Before you even reach,
the end of your wit
before you start to think
of calling it quits.

That’s when you need to go,
to God who’s orchestrated
the solution to your problem . . .
before it even formulated!

“The counsel of the Lord
standeth for ever, the thoughts

Oh, What A Vision ~

Oh what a vision,
oh, what a sight
now that I see
all in God’s light.

Oh, what a promise,
oh, what a story
I can hardly imagine
God in all His glory.

Oh, what a future,
oh, what a plan
now that my life
is in God’s hand.

Oh, what an approach,
oh, what a strategy
I can hardly imagine
Jesus’ full majesty.

Oh, what a vision,
oh, how I can’t wait
to enter through . . .
the straight narrow gate!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 2:9

“But as it is written,
Eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard,
neither have entered
into the heart of man,
the things which God
hath prepared for them
that love him.”

Cling ~

Cling
when you’re heart
is broken
Cling
when no words
can be spoken.

Cling
when you’re downcast
and depressed
Cling
when you’re troubled
and harassed.

Cling
when you’re stricken
and afflicted
Cling
when you’re confused
and conflicted.

Cling
when you’re defeated
and overburdened
Cling
when you’re weak
and disheartened.

Cling
when you’re worried
and tormented
Cling
when you’re restless
and discontented.

Cling
when you’re feeling
sad and blue
Cling
when you don’t know . . .
what else to do!

Sticky Note From God ~02.20.18~


A Marathon To Run ~

I have entered,
a marathon
and my eyes
are set upon . . .

To run with grace,
and perseverance
to not let sin
be an interference.

To go for the goal,
to push, to strain
so my reward
I’ll be able to gain.

To be faithful,
to the very end
to with this world
not be its friend.

To stay the course,
to claw, to fight
to win the battle
with God’s might.

To be peculiar,
to finish well
lest for eternity
I’ll spend in hell.

 I’ve entered a marathon,
I am racing toward . . .
the day I will meet Jesus
my Savior and Lord!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1-2

“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,

Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,
despising the shame,
and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.

It’s Hard Work ~

Lord, its not easy
following after You
it’s hard work
staying to You true.

It’s not easy,
giving up my pride
it’s hard work
in You to abide.

Lord, it’s not easy,
staying on the narrow way
it’s hard work
bearing my cross everyday.

It’s not easy.
being patient in the race
it’s hard work
relying on Your grace.

Lord, it’s not easy,
staying to You committed
it’s hard work
keeping my life submitted.

But, I know it will be,
all worth it in the end
so from You I’ll not leave
to become the world’s friend!
