Sticky Note From God ~05.31.18~


In A Jam ~

In a tight jam,
with no way out
once full of faith
now full of doubt?

Well, don’t you lose hope,
God’s the master of jams
for, He’s gotten out before
many of His trapped lambs.

Up against a wall,
don’t have a clear view
getting to the other side
looks impossible to do?

Well don’t you give up,
up and over you will go
for God will make a way
and a path He will show.

In a tight jam,
a wall up against . . .
well don’t you forget God
will come to your defense!

Isaiah 43:16

“Thus saith the Lord,
which maketh a way in the sea,
and a path in the mighty waters;”

Offend Me Lord ~

Offend me Lord,
with Your Word
let me be convicted
by the truth heard.

Insult me Lord,
with Your commands
so with false teachers
I’ll not shake hands.

Offend me Lord,
let me feel the sting
that Your reproof
in my life will bring.

Shock me Lord,
let my ears hear
no sinner in heaven
will You let near.

Outrage me Lord,
go ahead and offend
so with the world . . .
I’ll not be a friend!

~~~~~

John 6.61

“When Jesus knew in himself that his
disciples murmured at it,
he said unto them,
Doth this offend you?”

Heaven Getting ~

Lord, let me not honor You,
with my lips only
but with a heart that is . . .
devoted to You solely.

Let me not profess,
my undying love to You
only to go into the world
and follow what others do.

Let me not disobey,
the commands You taught
by living a life of hypocrisy
and doing whatever I want.

Let me not think,
it’s all about heaven getting
but, about right here and now
and any sin that is besetting.

Lord, let me not fool myself,
thinking hidden sin You can’t see
lest I hear You say one day . . .
you never really knew Me!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:21-23

“Not every one that saith unto me,
Lord, Lord, shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven; but he that
doeth the will of my Father which
is in heaven.

Many will say to me in that day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in thy name? and in thy name have
cast out devils? and in thy name
done many wonderful works?

And then will I profess unto them,
I never knew you: depart from me,
ye that work iniquity.”

The Need For Salvation ~

 

Some people don’t believe,
that they ever sin
some just don’t get
evilness lives within.

But I can attest,
this is not true
for I’ve read my Bible
all the way through.

Some will tell you,
God doesn’t love us
some say He isn’t
fair-minded or just.

But I can attest,
God’s a God of chances
and it’s His desire
to redeem the masses.

Some people don’t believe,
Jesus came to save
some doubt that He ever
rose from the grave.

But I can attest,
Jesus is our only salvation
and without His love and grace
we’d all be headed for damnation!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 10:9

“That if thou shalt confess
with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him from
the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

Strive For Peace ~

Don’t let your bitterness,
make you sour . . .
lest it’ll take from you
the Holy Spirit’s power.

For, bitterness will cause,
discontentment to grow
propelling your temper
to erupt and blow.

Don’t let any resentment,
enter into your soul
lest anger and frustration
will start to take control.

For resentment ignites,
the fires of animosity
and begrudging others
only inflames hostility.

Don’t let your bitterness
stir up resentment and strife
but rather strive to find . . .
God’s peace in your life!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:14-15

“Follow peace with all men,
and holiness, without which
no man shall see the Lord:

Looking diligently lest any man
fail of the grace of God;
lest any root of bitterness
springing up trouble you,
and thereby many be defiled;”

Let Trust Rule ~

If trust is to rule,
our mind and heart
then from God
we mustn’t depart.

For we know for us,
He has only the best
and on this truth
our souls can rest.

If trust is to dispel,
our fears and doubts
then the Word of God
we mustn’t shut out.

For in His Word,
we see all He is able
to keep our trust in Him
strong and stable.

When trust becomes,
to God our link . . .
into dread and despair
we will not sink!

~~~~~~

Psalm 112:7

“He shall not be
afraid of evil tidings:

his heart is fixed,
trusting in the Lord.”

Mission Possible ~

Your mission today,
if you should so agree
is to share the Good News
and tell others about Me.

Your subject today,
could be anyone
who doesn’t know
what for them I’ve done.

Your mission today,
if you should decide
is to let your light shine
on the reason I died.

Your actions today,
might just save a life
and bring someone peace
instead of eternal strife.

Your mission today,
is not impossible
for with Me . . .
all things are possible!

“And he said unto them,
Go ye into all the world,

Vanity, Oh Vanity ~

Vanity, oh vanity
what gain is there in
the charm of your lure
only covers our sin.

On lofty pedestal,
is where you put us
so that in ourselves
not in God we’ll trust.

You tease and play,
with our heart and mind
vanity, oh vanity
your pride makes us blind.

You lift us up high,
proud chin and all
so we can’t look down
on the cause of our fall.

Ego, oh ego,
vanities conceited kin
in you there is no good . . .
beyond your wicked grin!

~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 1:2

“Vanity of vanities,
saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities;
all is vanity.”

A Victorious Life ~

A life victorious,
is a life that overcomes
for, to the old man it dies
and the new one it becomes.

A life triumphant,
is a life that’s no longer
engrossed with the world
and all it has to offer.

A life unbeaten,
is a life that’s defeated
the desires of the flesh
from its hearts are deleted.

A life confident.
is a life that’s conquered
picking up its own cross
no longer feels awkward.

A life victorious,
is a God-fearing one
for it’s a life that reflects
the life of His Son!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:4

“For whatsoever is born of God
overcometh the world:
and this is the victory
that overcometh the world,
even our faith.

The Light of My Life ~

Today I am singing,
though outside it is gray
I can still see the Light . . .
though the sun’s tucked away.

For the Light that shines in me,
makes my heart radiate
though there maybe clouds
my joy they can’t alienate.

Jesus is that Light,
the song of my salvation
and I don’t need the sun
to sing out my elation.

For the Light of Jesus,
lights up both night and day
nothing stops it from shinning
on the Truth, Life and Way.

Today I am singing,
though outside it is dreary
the Light of my life. . .
is all I need to be cheery!

~~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk
in darkness, but shall have the
light of life.”
