Sticky Note From God ~04.30.18~


The Many Facet’s of Grace ~

There are many facets,
to God’s grace . . .
and each one of them
we need to embrace.

There is an abundance,
of grace sufficient . . .
to abound in all things
and make us resilient.

There is a flooding,
of grace restoring . . .
to help keep us from
hopelessly despairing.

There is an overflowing,
of grace comforting . . .
when from heartbreak
we are suffering.

There is an outpouring,
of grace restraining . . .
to overcome temptation
and from sin entertaining.

There is a flooding,
of grace sanctifying . . .
to  live our life’s holy
and not self-satisfying

There are many facets,
to God’s grace . . .
and Jesus showed them all
when He died in our place!

~~~~~~~

John 1:16

“And of his fulness
have all we received,
and grace for grace.

When At A Crossroad ~

Some paths we are on,
are rugged and rough
some are easier . . .
and on us not so tough.

But, regardless of the path,
that God has us on
we must still be willing
to be Spirit drawn.

Some paths we are on,
are demanding and long
some are breeze . . .
filled with laughter and song.

But, when at a crossroad,
the path we choose to take
could be our biggest blessing
or our greatest mistake.

For, when we realize,
God’s paths are the best
that is when we will find . . .
our true peace and rest!

~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 6:16

“Thus saith the Lord,
Stand ye in the ways,
and see, and ask for
the old paths, where
is the good way, and
walk therein, and ye
shall find rest for
your souls.
But they said,
We will not walk therein.”

If Jesus Said ~

If Jesus said,
I will never leave you
then why do we act
as if this weren’t true?

If Jesus said,
Your cares I’ll bear
then why do we think
for us, He’s not there?

If Jesus said,
I’ll forsake you not
then why isn’t this
a captive thought?

If Jesus said,
go and sin no more
then why do we still
open temptation’s door?

If Jesus said,
sufficient is My grace
then why more of it
don’t we embrace?

If Jesus said,
faith is all I require
then why don’t we
our own efforts expire?

If Jesus said,
all of these things . . .
then why onto His words
don’t we daily cling!

~~~~~~~

Romans 10:17

“So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God.”

Keep On Trusting ~

Is your faith shaking,
is it weak and wobbly
does it feel as if . . .
your life’s a tragic comedy?

Well don’t you let go,
onto Jesus keep holding on
and He will be there for you
till the quivering is gone.

Is your trust shaking,
is it at an unsafe standstill
does it feel as if . . .
your steadily going downhill?

Well don’t you quit,
with Jesus keep standing
and He’ll give you the strength
to keep you from crash landing.

Is your  trust shaken,
is it in a dreaded deadlock
well keep on clinging on . . .
to Jesus, your ROCK!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 62:1-2

“Truly my soul waiteth upon God:
from him cometh my salvation.

He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.”

Our Daily Mission ~

When with God we’re repentant,
and fall under His submission
praise and thanksgiving . . .
will become our daily mission.

For, those who trust God,
know all will be Okay
no matter what may come
or what He sends our way.

When with God we’re humble,
and self-denial is the rule
our thanksgiving for all things
will be our spiritual fuel.

For, those who are hopeful,
know God won’t send anything
that would ever keep them
from Him worshiping.

When with God our attitudes,
are positive and confident
our praise and thanks to Him
will be in our lives, dominate!

~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:18

“In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Truly ~

Truly ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I know from experience,
God sends us heartbreak
and through it I’ve learned
He truly doesn’t forsake.

Though at the time,
we may think God isn’t near
it’s at that very moment . . .
we must give Him this fear.

For, in the midst of tragedy,
Jesus is also there
and our pain and sorrow
He truly wants to bear.

He takes our sorrow,
and give us more grace
so that our tomorrows
we can joyfully face.

I know from experience,
the breaking of a grieving heart
and now I know truly . . .
nothing can shake my faith apart!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 147:3

“He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.”

A Fool’s Mouth ~

A fool could care less,
about knowing God’s will
a fool to his own ways
will never be still.

A fools mouth,
never quits running
a fool doesn’t care
for whom he is gunning.

A fool loves to vent,
rant and to rage
a fool has no real
temperature gage.

A fool despises advice,
other than his own
a fool’s instruction
are always home-grown.

A fools argument,
is fierce and intense
a fools furry is always at
other peoples expense.

A fool doesn’t see,
the need for salvation
A fool can’t believe . . .
Jesus brings redemption!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 18:7

“A fool’s mouth is his ruin,
and his lips
are a snare to his soul.”

My Shepherd Knows Me ~

 

My Shepherd knows me,
and I know His voice
so I follow Him . . .
it is my choice.

When I need comfort,
on His staff I lean
so His peace and calm
my heart can glean.

When in a valley,
He guides me along
when I get weary
He makes me strong.

When a mountain,
I have to face
He provides me with
more of His grace.

The Lord’s my Shepherd,
He knows me oh, so well
I choose to follow Him . . .
so not to end up in hell!

~~~~~~~~

My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me.”

Wholly, Holy Living ~

Wholly, holy living,
righteous and true
is what Jesus calls . . .
for all to be and do.

Wholly submitted,
not just in part
Jesus wants the all . . .
of each soul and heart.

Wholly, holy living,
pure and undefiled
are those who in Jesus
have been reconciled.

Wholly committed,
not partly submersed
in Jesus we’re to be
completely immersed.

Wholly, holy living,
faithful and steadfast
is what Jesus calls . . .
the world’s outcasts!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 56:8

“The Lord God, which gathereth
the outcasts of Israel saith,
Yet will I gather others to him,
beside those that are gathered unto him.

Fear’s Canvas ~

When night turns,
thoughts anxious
casting shadows
on fear’s canvas.

Turn to God,
to ease your mind
and His peace
you will find.

When night’s dread,
long fingers wrap
and your heart
it has in a trap.

Turn to God,
to release its grasp
and onto His calm
let your heart clasp.

When the night turns,
your thoughts anxious
cast them onto God . . .
and watch them vanish!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

“Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.”
