Sticky Note From God ~11.30.19~


The Bible Is Like A Mirror ~

The Bible is like a mirror,
it reflects yourself so true
it shows all the hidden sin
yet living inside of you.

But if you never read it,
how will you ever glean
the areas in your life
God still needs to make clean.

The Bible is like a mirror,
it reflects your heart so true
it shows what is keeping
God disconnected from you.

But if you don’t study it,
God cannot lead or direct
you to see how sinfulness
has an everlasting effect.

The Bible is like a mirror,
His reflection should be in you
but, you must apply it . . .
in your life ~ for this to be true!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 3:2

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we
shall be: but we know that, when he
shall appear, we shall be like him;
for we shall see him as he is.

As The Storm Rages ~

As the storm rages,
as the gusts blow
as the reeling waves
mount up and grow.

Let Jesus your heart,
quill and quiet
till the battering winds
are calm and silent.

As the gales whip,
as they howl and roar
as the frigid rain
on top of you pours.

Let Jesus your mind,
still and settle
til the waves become
lulled and gentle.

As the storm rages,
as the winds intensify
hold on to Jesus
so they’ll not terrify!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 8:23-25

But as they sailed he fell asleep:
and there came down a storm of wind
on the lake; and they were filled
with water, and were in jeopardy.

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.

And he said unto them, Where is your faith?
And they being afraid wondered, saying
one to another, What manner of man is this!
for he commandeth even the winds and water,
and they obey him.

Today Is Thanksgiving ~

Today is Thanksgiving,
a time of fullness
a time to thank God . . .
for His steadfast goodness.

A time to be blessed,
to give blessings too
a time to thank God . . .
for all He does for you.

Today is Thanksgiving,
a time of appreciation
a time to thank God . . .
for His fortification.

A time to be nourished,
to give nourishment too
a time to thank God . . .
for daily enriching you.

Today is Thanksgiving,
a time of heartfelt gratitude
a time to thank God . . .
with an appreciative attitude!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:1

O give thanks unto the Lord,
for he is good: for his mercy
endureth for ever.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

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

Treasures in Jars ~

Treasures in jars,
might be made of clay
but, when they are pressed
close to God they stay.

Oh, they may crack,
but, they will not weaken
for treasures in jars . . .
in God’s power believe in.

Treasures in jars,
they do not crumble
for God makes them
strong and yet humble.

Oh, they may get crushed,
but, they don’t fall apart
for treasures in jars . . .
trust God with all their heart.

Treasures in jars,
are not ever perplexed
for their hope in God
is eternally transfixed!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:7-9

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels,

that the excellency of
the power may be of God,

and not of us.

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;

we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted,
but not forsaken;

cast down,
but not destroyed;

How Much Longer God ~

Sometimes the reality,
of a world gone haywire
takes away all my joy
in the hairs of its crossfire.

For with all the evil I see,
and all the horror I hear
all I can do is ask . . .
why Jesus, aren’t You here?

Sometimes the truth,
of a world gone amok
takes away my peace
leaving me awestruck.

For with all the tragedy,
the death and the disasters
I can’t help but to wonder . . .
why Lord, can’t You come faster?

Sometimes the realness,
of a world gone roughshod
all I can do is pray and ask  . . .
how much longer, oh my God!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 10:1

Why standest thou afar off,
O Lord?
why hidest thou thyself
in times of trouble?

This Fight Is Yours Lord ~

Lord, this fight is Yours,
I give the conflict to You
for I am not sure . . .
what with it I should do.

The opposition,
is way too aggressive
outright obstinate
overtly progressive.

Lord, this contest is Yours,
I need You to take charge
the battleground for me
is just way too large.

The conflict that I am in,
is too overwhelming
my opponents are many
and oh, so unrelenting.

Lord this fight is Yours,
come save me . . .
from satan’s arrogance
and his prideful army!

~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 20:4

For the Lord your God is he that
goeth with you, to fight for you
against your enemies, to save you.

A Penitent Soul ~

Once you repent,
fruit you will bear
for all of your sins
will be laid out bare.

For a contrite heart,
will forsake all evil
follow no longer
the ways of the devil.

Once you profess,
you are a sinner
worldly conforming
no longer will hinder.

For a penitent soul,
desires no more
of what the world
has for it in store.

Once you repent,
you’ll bear the fruit
of true repentance
so sin can’t take root!

~~~~~

Matthew 3:8

Bring forth therefore
fruits meet for repentance:

The Thorn of Pride ~

I got me this thing,
it’s stuck in my side
it looks just like . . .
the thorn of pride.

It’s making me feel,
rather unconformable
it’s making me weak
to satan vulnerable.

It’s bringing me down,
not in a humble way
I’m more haughty
the longer it stays.

It’s a disgrace to me,
so full of arrogance
it makes me believe
in my own intelligence.

I got me this thorn,
its got me feeling low
I know it’s my pride . . .
and God wants it to go!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:7

And lest I should be exalted above
measure through the abundance of
the revelations, there was given
to me a thorn in the flesh,
the messenger of Satan to buffet me,
lest I should be exalted above measure.

The Cornucopia of Contentment ~

Thanksgiving is the time,
of finding true contentment
a time to praise God . . .
without any resentment.

A time to discover,
the secret of gratitude
a time to let thanksgiving
become our daily attitude.

Thanksgiving is the time,
of finding satisfaction
a time for appreciation
no matter our condition.

It’s a time to be thankful,
to God for everything
a time to be grateful
for whatever He may bring.

Thanksgiving’s a cornucopia,
of having true contentment
for all those who on God . . .
are genuinely dependent!

~~~~~

Philippians 4:11-13

Not that I speak in respect of want:
for I have learned, in whatsoever
state I am, therewith to be content.

I know both how to be abased,
and I know how to abound:
every where and in all things
I am instructed both
to be full and to be hungry,
both to abound and to suffer need.

I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me.

God Is Ever Present ~

God is ever present,
He is ever near
that is why you don’t . . .
have anything to fear.

Leave you He will not,
by you He will always stay
that is why you need . . .
to trust Him every day.

God is in every place,
He too is every where
He is above and below
with you He is right there.

Depart from you He won’t,
take leave from you He will not
that is why you must . . .
believe in Him with all you got.

God is right there with you,
with me He is here too . .
He has promised both of us . .
never to leave or forsake you!

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 13:5

Let your conversation be
without covetousness;
and be content with such
things as ye have: for he
hath said, I will never
leave thee, nor forsake thee.
