Sticky Note From God ~01.31.19~


God’s Looking ~

God looks and He looks,
hoping to find . . .
those who love Him
with whole hearts and minds.

He scans the whole earth,
His eyes wander around
seeks everywhere . . .
but so few are found

God eyes keep moving,
they run all about
looking to find souls
who to Him are devout.

He looks hard to locate,
hearts that are perfect
those who have for Him
holy fear and respect.

God looks and He looks
but finds hardly a one
for so many now  . . .
reject and deny His Son!

~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 16:9

“For the eyes of the Lord run
to and fro throughout the whole earth,
to shew himself strong in the behalf
of them whose heart is perfect toward him.”

A Warning ~

Don’t be fooled,
though saved by grace
to these truths . . .
we must embrace.

Do not go down the road,
of sexual temptation
rather to immorality
have no association.

Don’t continue to sin,
or stay on the wide way
rather confess and repent
right now without delay.

Do not drift or fall back,
into godless living
rather into righteousness
keep yourself pressing.

Don’t fall victim,
to satan’s attacks
rather flee for your life . . .
and don’t look back!

~~~~~~~~~

Titus 2:11-12

“For the grace of God that
bringeth salvation hath
appeared to all men,

Teaching us that, denying
ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly,
in this present world;”

Passionately Insatiable ~

Lord let me not get,
too old to keep learning
keep my eagerness
for knowledge burning.

Let me not become,
too comfortable
thinking I am . . .
oh, so knowledgeable.

Lord, let me continue,
to keep on growing
may I never grow tired
of more of You knowing.

Let me not be,
content in my ways
so I may gain wisdom
for the rest of my days.

Lord let me not get,
too old and lackadaisical
keep my knowledge for You
passionately insatiable!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.
To him be glory
both now and for ever.”
Amen.

A Prisoner of Hope ~

I’m a prisoner of hope,
for Jesus captured me
the day when from this world
He came and set me free.

I’m a prisoner of love.
for Jesus gave me life
the day when upon Himself
He took my worldly strife.

I am a prisoner of faith,
for Jesus convicted me
of the hidden sin in my life
that only He could see.

I’m a prisoner of trust,
for Jesus gave me light
the day when He filled me
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

I’m a prisoner of hope,
love, faith and trust . . .
for Jesus showed me
He is always fair and just!

~~~~~~~

Zechariah 9:12

Turn you to the strong hold,
ye prisoners of hope:
even to day do I declare
that I will render
double unto thee;

Old Creature Gone ~

Old creature gone,
exchanged for the new
the day Lord, Jesus
we came to follow You.

Old dirty habits,
old thoughts and ways
redeemed for the new
for the rest of our days.

Old bitter resentment,
old tempers and demands
substituted for the new
as we obey Your commands.

Old greedy desires,
old habits and lusts
converted for the new
when we began to trust.

Old creature gone,
exchanged for the new
all because Lord, Jesus
we’re beholden to You!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in
Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold,
all things are become new.

To Be That Person ~

We all need someone,
to lift us up when down
a special person
who is always around.

We all need an ear,
on which to rely
we all need a shoulder
to lay our heads and cry.

We all need a friend,
in which to run to
we all need a supporter
to help get us through.

We all need Jesus,
to encourage us
to be that person
someone else can trust.

We all need someone,
some times, some way
we all need each other
to lift us up and pray!

~~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

“Two are better than one;
because they have a good
reward for their labour.

“For if they fall, the one will
lift up his fellow:
but woe to him that is
alone when he falleth;
for he hath not another
to help him up.”

A Thread of Hope ~

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for doubt and fear
not to breed.

For all it takes,
is one little strand
for God’s power
to be in your hand.

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for trust and faith
to be freed.

For all it asks,
is for you to believe
God’s mighty strength
you will receive.

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for faith to grow
from a mustard seed!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, ye shall say
unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.

Put Jesus First ~

When you put Jesus,
first on your list
there He will be
right in the midst.

For when you meet,
with Jesus each day
He will by your side
unfailingly stay.

When you make Jesus,
your top priority
His Word you will keep
with all authority.

For when Jesus is taken,
more seriously
the more you will train
for the race rigorously.

When you trust Jesus,
fully and completely
you will go to Him
each day more routinely!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:33

“But seek ye first
the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness;
and all these things
shall be added unto you.”

John 14:23

“Jesus answered and said unto him,
If a man love me, he will keep my
words: and my Father will love him,
and we will come unto him,
and make our abode with him.”

Love Is Blind ~

Love is patient,
it doesn’t keep score
when it’s insulted
it doesn’t get sore.

Love isn’t self-centered,
it isn’t conceited
when it is put down
it isn’t defeated.

Love is kind,
it doesn’t get mad
when disappointed
is doesn’t get sad.

Love isn’t self-seeking
it isn’t disturbed
when it’s agitated
it isn’t perturbed.

Love is patient,
love is kind . . .
to other’s faults
love is blind!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

“Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; charity
envieth not; charity
vaunteth not itself,
is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked,
thinketh no evil;”

Yes, No, Maybe So ~

Often we say yes,
when we should say no
because it’s easier
just to say and do so.

But, sometimes God,
wants us to say no
so that a bigger yes
He can reveal and show.

Often we say no,
when we should say yes
because we don’t want
to jump into the mess.

But, sometimes God,
wants us to say yes
so that others for Him
we can truly bless.

Sometimes we say yes,
other times it’s a no . . .
but, if we seek God’s will
it’ll never be a maybe so!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:6

Not with eyeservice,
as menpleasers; but as
the servants of Christ,
doing the will of God
from the heart;
