Sticky Note From God ~03.31.18~


Jesus Wept ~

Jesus groaned,
He moaned, He sighed
for that poor woman . . .
He even cried.

He felt the agony,
of sorrows fervent heat
for that poor woman . . .
fallen down at His feet.

Jesus wept,
real tears were shed
for that poor woman . . .
He bowed His head.

For, He too felt,
the pain, the grief
for that poor woman . . .
over death’s disbelief.

Jesus still groans,
moans and sighs
for the heartbroken . .
I’m sure He still cries!

~~~~~~~~~

John 11:32-35

“Then when Mary was come where Jesus was,
and saw him, she fell down at his feet,
saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here,
my brother had not died.

When Jesus therefore saw her weeping,
and the Jews also weeping which came with her,
he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.

And said, Where have ye laid him?
They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

Jesus wept.

His Stripes ~

His stripes,
my forgiven sin
His chastisement
my peace within.

His wounds,
my transgression
His death
my redemption.

His bruising,
my iniquity
His crown
my victory.

His sorrow,
my corruption
His grief
my adoption.

His stripes,
my healing
His Spirit
my sealing!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:4-5

“Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.

“But he was wounded
for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace
was upon him;
and with his stripes
we are healed.”

God Is Never Late ~

 

God is never late,
tardy, He is not
all goes by His plan
in the time He allots.

God is never slow,
His timing is perfected
the hour, the minute
He has already selected.

God is never delayed,
His purpose is on track
on His own timetable
not a second will He tack.

God is never slack,
He has time on His rein
He knows the exact moment
when Jesus will come to reign.

God is never late,
He knows how long the span
all will work out in the end
for time is in His hand!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:8

“But, beloved, be not ignorant
of this one thing, that one day
is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years
as one day.”

God is A God of Purpose ~

God is not a God,
of circumstance
nor is He a God
of happenstance.

For, He is a God,
all-knowing, all mindful
everything He does
is mighty and powerful.

God is not a God,
of coincidence
nor is He a God
of indifference.

For, He is a God,
of purpose, of design
everything He does
is righteous and divine.

God is not a God
of circumstance
He leaves nothing . . .
to luck, fate or chance!

Psalm 147:5

“Great is our Lord,
and of great power:
his understanding is infinite.”

All In CHRIST ~

All in Christ,
I abide
all my hope
lives inside.

All to Christ,
I give my soul
all my days
to control.

All on Christ,
my eyes fixed
keeping always
Him in the midst.

All for Christ,
I will live
all my heart
to Him I give.

All in Christ,
all of me
till the day
with Him I be!

~~~~~~~

John 14:17

“Even the Spirit of truth;
whom the world cannot receive,
because it seeth him not,
neither knoweth him:
but ye know him;
for he dwelleth with you,
and shall be in you.”

A Sheeple I am ~

I’m one of His sheep,
for this I am proud
I have no problem
saying this aloud.

For, He’s my Shepherd,
with Him I need not
all that I require
for me He has got.

I’m one His sheep,
it’s Jesus who I follow
for He fills the void
in a heart, once hollow.

For, He’s my Lord,
my Life and my Savior
His grace is why
I’ve my Father’s favor.

Yes, I follow Jesus,
so if that makes me a sheeple
I will not be offended  . . .
when called this by other people!

“The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.”

The World’s Wilderness ~

The world is a wilderness,
with strange and eerie places
and I could not travel in it . . .
without Jesus and His graces.

I know I would get lost,
in the darkness in front of me
for, without His saving light
the wickedness I’d not see.

The world is a wilderness,
with dark and scary pathways
and I would stumble on them
if Jesus wasn’t with me always.

For, I would not be able to see,
the clear and present danger
of following after those . . .
who were to Him a stranger.

The world is a wilderness,
I need to navigate through
tis why I keep my Shepherd
and His flock in my view!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 78:52

“But made his own people
to go forth like sheep,
and guided them in the
wilderness like a flock.”

An Albatross ~

Some say I am,
an out-dated albatross
because I still cling
to Jesus on the cross.

They say I am,
liberation’s hindrance
because I believe
in Jesus’ saving grace.

They say I am,
progression’s impediment
because I have
a Godly temperament.

They say I am,
an obstacle in the way
because I follow
the Life, Truth and Way.

But, I do not care,
what they have to say
for nothing will cause me  . . .
from God’s Word to stray!

~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:16-17

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of God may be perfect,
thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

In A Slump ~

In a slump,
spiritually speaking
faith needing
a little tweaking?

Well don’t stop,
praying when dry
go ahead with God
and have a good cry.

In the dumps,
thought’s troubling
worries becoming
a little unnerving?

Well don’t stop,
raising your praise
God understands
it’s just a phase.

In a funk,
losing the battle
cares have you
a little bit rattled?

Well don’t you stop,
in God trusting . . .
until living water
again come rushing!

~~~~~~~~

“He that believeth on me,
as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall
flow rivers of living water.”

Jesus, My Calm ~

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm before the storm
for bringing me peace . . .
before it starts to form.

For, I never know,
when one I’ll go through
and when I do . . .
I want it to be with You.

Lord, thank You for going,
into the storm with me
there’s no one else
with whom I’d rather be.

For, only You can still,
my fears that fall and crest
and provide for me
an anchor on which to rest.

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm after the storm
for bringing me back to . . .
a place safe and warm!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 8:24

“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”
