Sticky Note From God~ 04.30.19~


Work Out Your Own Salvation ~

You can exercise,
every day at the gym
you can lift weights
to keep fit and trim.

But, if you’re not living,
a Godly life . . .
your soul will experience
eternal strife.

You can go to a clubhouse,
in the day or at night
you can keep your physic
noticeable strong and tight.

But, if you’re not working,
out your own salvation
you could be headed
for eternal damnation.

You can run a marathon,
or any other race
you can groom yourself
to take first place.

But, if you’re not training,
each day for Godliness
you just might miss out on . . .
having everlasting bliss!

~~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 4:8

“For bodily exercise profiteth little:
but godliness is profitable unto all
things, having promise of the life
that now is, and of that which is to come.

Let The Water Flow ~

Let the Water flow,
let it gush, let it spew
so it may bring Lord
more thirsty souls to You.

Let the Spirit burst forth,
let it flare, let it erupt
so it may save Lord
the depraved and corrupt.

Let the Truth spill out,
let it ooze, let it seep
so it may harness Lord
lost and wayward sheep.

Let the Light flood,
let it drench, let it surge
so that in Your grace Lord
sinful hearts can purge.

Let the Living Water flow,
let it gush, let it release
so that in You Lord . . .
all can find eternal peace!

~~~~~~

John 7:37-39

In the last day, that great day
of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him
come unto me, and drink.

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

(But this spake he of the Spirit,
which they that believe on him
should receive: for the Holy Ghost
was not yet given; because that
Jesus was not yet glorified.)

End Those Painful Memories ~

For some the battle rages,
deep inside their head
where memories of the past
fill them with fear and dread.

They hold on to the picture,
that paints a horrific view
of what people once did . . .
and what they still can do.

Jesus can fix those images,
locked up in your mind
He has a brighter landscape
for you to come and find.

There you’ll have a new life,
one that holds His peace
and those painful old pictures
will fade away and cease.

For some the past fills them,
with sadness, despair and dread
but with Jesus there’s hope . . .
for a joyful future ahead!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-15

 Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things
which are behind, and
reaching forth unto those
things which are before,

I press toward the mark for
the prize of the high calling
of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us therefore, as many as be
perfect, be thus minded: and
if in any thing ye be otherwise
minded, God shall reveal
even this unto you.

There’s No Fear Today ~

There is no fear,
of God today . . .
there’s no concern
for judgment day.

There’s no despair,
about hell today
there’s just too many
on the wide way.

There’s no dread,
over evil today
there’s not a soul
satan can’t sway.

There’s no turning,
from sin today
there’s so few left
on the straight way.

There’s no fear,
of God today . . .
but there’ll be trembling
come judgment day!

~~~~~~~

Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord
is the beginning of
knowledge: but fools
despise wisdom
and instruction.

These Final Days ~

Fill us with hope Lord,
in these final days
keep us from following
the world’s wicked ways.

Fill us with trust Lord,
as the end draws near
keep our minds sober
our consciences clear.

Fill us with faith Lord,
in these perilous times
keeps our hearts pure
our souls fit and prime.

Fill us with peace Lord,
as Your return we await
keep our steps heading
towards the narrow gate.

Keep filling us Lord,
with hope, faith, peace and trust
keep our love for You . . .
till the end strong and robust!

~~~~~~

Timothy 3:1-7

This know also, that in the last
days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their
own selves, covetous, boasters,
proud, blasphemers, disobedient
to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers,
false accusers, incontinent, fierce,
despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures more than
lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which
creep into houses, and lead c
aptive silly women laden with sins,
led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to
come to the knowledge of the truth.

A One Time Wonder ~

Lord, let me not be,
so easy on me
so that my faults
I cannot see.

For, You know my heart,
better than I . . .
from You I can’t hide
the plank in my eye.

Lord, help me to be,
with myself forthright
so I don’t come across
as not being contrite.

For, You know my thoughts,
better than I
You can always see
through my every lie.

Lord, be honest with me,
as my heart You ponder . . .
for I don’t want You to be
to me a one-time wonder!

~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 21:2

Every way of a man is right
in his own eyes: but the Lord
pondereth the hearts.

That Secret Place ~

I found that sweet spot,
where with God I can be
I found when I’m there
He too is there with me.

I found that place of peace,
where to God I can pray
I found when I’m there
we have so much to say.

I found that niche of hope,
where with God I’m alone
I found when I’m there
there is no real time zone.

I found that nook of stillness,
where with God I converse
I found when I’m there
in quietude I’m immersed.

I found that secret place,
where with God I can be
I found when I’m there . . .
He dwells there too with me!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1

He that dwelleth
in the secret place
of the most High
shall abide under
the shadow of
the Almighty.

Beyond The Cross ~

Beyond the cross,
there’s a glorious view
for in Jesus’ death . . .
all things are made new.

New beginnings,
fresh clean starts
eternal hope
to fill our hearts.

Beyond the cross,
there is new life
the end to sin
and worldly strife.

No more battles,
no more struggles
no more satan
causing troubles.

Beyond the cross,
there are no fears
no death, no pain
and no more tears.

Despair will end,
suffering will cease
there will only be
everlasting peace.

Beyond the cross,
hope springs anew
all because Jesus . . .
died for me and you!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

“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 Is Finished ~

“It is finished”
words of agony from Jesus’ lips
“It is finished
no greater love will again eclipse.

“It is finished”
these words aloud Jesus said
and for the sins of everyone
His soul hemorrhage and bled.

“It is finished”
but, what really had just begun
was that grace and forgiveness
were freely given by God’s Son.

“It is finished”
but, for you it can be a new start
if you repent now of your sin
and give Jesus your whole heart.

“It is finished”
Jesus died so that you’d be free
let His death on  Calvary’s cross
take your soul to its knees.

“It is finished”
but, it’s not the end of the story
not until the day all of mankind
stands before God’s in all His glory.

“It is finished”
words of hope from Jesus’ lips
“It is finished”
don’t let His love for you eclipse!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 19:30

“So when Jesus had received the sour
wine, He said, “It is finished!” And
bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.”
