In The Waiting Room ~

In the waiting room,
I often have to sit
though at times . . .
it gives me the fits.

For, I get impatient,
waiting just to hear
God’s answers being
whispered in my ear.

In the waiting room,
I sit and I rock
back and forth I go
listening for His knock.

But, I get so dizzy,
bobbing in my chair
as I’m waiting on God
to take away my care.

In the waiting room,
is where I need to be
for it’s when with faith
God empowers me!

Psalm 27:14

“Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart:
wait, I say,
on the Lord.”

Grace and Faith ~

Grace and faith,
brings true liberation
for, it’s the only way
to finding salvation.

There’s no other path,
that we can take
only Jesus can seal
our eternal fate.

Grace and faith,
fits just like a glove
for it’s the greatest gift
of God’s merciful love.

There’s no other road,
for us to travel on
there’s only one way
to God and His Son.

Grace and faith,
nothing else to do
but to believe . . .
Jesus died for you!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

Wresting With My Spirit ~

Sometimes with my spirit,
I use to wrestle with . . .
I’d toss and I’d turn over
whether God was just a myth.

I tussled with the thoughts,
of God’s mercy and His grace
I contended with the fact
that I’d ever see His face.

Sometimes with my heart,
I’d have a great debate
over whether heaven
would be my eternal fate.

I mulled around in my mind,
if Jesus died for me
and whether from my sins
I’d ever really be set free.

 I use to wrestle with,
the very enemy of my soul . . .
but, now to his attacks I’m aware
and refuse to give him control!

1 Peter 5:8

“Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,

God Will Save You ~

If right now things,
are looking down
and you don’t have
God’s peace around.

Then on God’s Word,
you will need to focus
so your trust in Him
can rise to the surface.

If Your situation seems,
bleak and hopeless
and you are feeling
weary and helpless.

Then on God’s strength,
you will need to call
for He will save you
before you can fall.

If right now you feel,
weak and defenseless
know that God will never
leave you powerless!

Psalm 55:16

“As for me,
I will call upon God;
and the Lord shall save me.”

Lift Me Higher Lord ~

When my troubles,
are overwhelming
before my cares
become unrelenting.

I look to Jesus,
to lift me higher
so His peace
I might acquire.

When my worries,
are too heavy
before my tears
become steady.

I go to Jesus,
my High Rock
and in the storm
with Him I walk.

When my fears,
begin to transpire
I look to Jesus
to lift me higher!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 61:2

“From the end of the earth
will I cry unto thee,
When my heart
is overwhelmed:
lead me to the Rock
that is higher than I.”

Faith Isn’t A Feeling ~

Some days I just plain feel,
my faith it isn’t with it
sometimes I don’t feel
led by the Holy Spirit.

But, then God reminds me,
faith isn’t about how I feel
it’s about trusting Him . . .
so His truths He can reveal.

Some days I feel anxious,
caught up in my fear
some days it’s so hard
to feel God is ever near.

But, then God reminds me,
faith isn’t about how I feel
faith is believing Jesus . . .
my anxieties He will heal.

Some days my heart,
feels so burdened down
sometimes I don’t feel
or sense any hope around.

But, then God reminds me,
faith is not about a feeling
faith is about my future
and all He will be revealing!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

“Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.”

The Dew of God’s Spirit ~

God sends His Spirit,
like the dew from above
to cover us each day
with His mercy and love.

Glistening beads of hope,
to soften the hard crust
so we may put in Him
every ounce of our trust.

He refreshes us daily,
with tiny drops of dew
so our faith may grow
in the things that are true.

Dew drops from heaven,
seeping into our hearts
so more of His grace
each day He can impart.

Restoring dew drops,
soak up our daily strife
filling us with His peace
and the joy of new life.

God sends His Spirit,
like sweet drops of dew
so each day our hearts
He can repair and  renew!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 133:3

“As the dew of Hermon,
and as the dew that descended
upon the mountains of Zion:
for there the Lord commanded
the blessing, even life for evermore.”

Trust That Enables ~

Feeling inadequate,
faith running low
losing the will
to let God, then let go?

Then you need to find,
the Holy Spirit’s fullness
so He can revive
your spiritual dullness.

Feeling ineffective,
trust is harder to find
too many burdens
weighing on your mind?

Then you need Jesus,
your strength to increase
so onto Him your cares
you’ll be able to release.

Feelings of inadequacy,
faith shaky and unstable
then ask God to provide you
with trust that enables!

~~~~~~~

Proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;
and lean not unto
thine own understanding.”

If We Are to Have Hope ~

 

If we are to have hope,
in what we can’t see
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t trust more in Thee?

If we are to have patience,
while for Your return we await
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep to the straight gate?

If we are to have faith,
that Your Kingdom is coming
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep faithfully running.

If we are to have perseverance,
even though You may tarry
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t our own cross carry?

If we are to have hope,
if we are to trust and believe
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep our eyes on Thee?

~~~~~~~

Romans 8:25

“But if we hope for that we see not,
then do we with patience wait for it.”

Seeking God ~

If you seek God,
you will find
a place for Him
in your mind.

For, when you search,
God is found
and your thoughts
in Him, will abound.

If you seek God,
you will discover
and His plans for you
you will uncover.

For, when You look,
with all your heart
from His purposes
you’ll not depart.

If you seek God,
He will be there
and to His ways
you’ll be aware!

Deuteronomy 4:29

“But if from thence thou
shalt seek the Lord thy God,
thou shalt find him,
if thou seek him with all
thy heart and with all thy soul.”

The Path Toward Peace ~

The path toward peace,
is one paved in pain
with plenty of loss
for our spiritual gain.

On it there is suffering,
sorrow and persecution
but, in Jesus we all have
hope and restitution.

The path toward heaven,
is full of ups and downs
plenty of highs and lows
we have to get around.

On it there are setbacks,
barricades and barriers
but, they only make us
for Jesus, stronger warriors.

The path toward joy,
is one we can truly trust
for Jesus our Savior . . .
has gone on it before us!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:13

“But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are
partakers of Christ’s sufferings;
that, when his glory shall be
revealed, ye may be glad
also with exceeding joy.”

If We Know ~

If we know . . .
all things work for our good
then why don’t we trust God
like we know we should?

If we know . . .
together things will work out
then why don’t we trust God
instead of having doubt?

If we know . . .
with God all things are possible
then why don’t we trust God
with what is impossible?

If we know . . .
our life’s are in God’s control
then why don’t we trust God
with the things of the soul?

If we know . . .
and God we truly love
then why aren’t we willing
our fears to let go of?

Romans 8.28

“We know that all things
work together for
good to them that love God:

Hard Pressed ~

We’re all hard pressed,
from time to time
we all feel baffled
when mountains we climb.

We’re all stressed out,
from the daily wear
we all feel troubled
by our ongoing care.

We’re all needy,
about so many things
we’re all so weary
by the storms life brings.

We’re all down cast,
for different reasons
we’re all scrambling
through life’s seasons.

But, we not need be,
in a state of despair
for Jesus on the cross
our burdens did bear!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:8-10

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;

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus
might be made manifest in our body.”

I Do Not Doubt ~

My God has designs,
He will figure this out
He has a plan for me
in this, I do not doubt.

Though I’m concerned,
He knows just what to do
and so my Father . . .
in faith, I leave this with You.

My God keeps His promises,
He is forever merciful
everything He does
is perfectly, purposeful.

Though I may be worried,
I am not afraid
for I know with God
I’m not to be dismayed.

My God is good,
He’s always fair and just
that is why in Him . . .
I choose to place my trust!

“The Lord will perfect
that which concerneth me:
thy mercy, O Lord,
endureth for ever:
forsake not the works
of thine own hands.”

Without Faith ~

 

Without having faith,
God cannot be pleased
without knowing Jesus
eternity can’t be seized.

Without considering,
God’s very existence
over sin and satan
we’ll never have resistance.

Without God’s Word,
His will can’t be known
without the Bible
His ways can’t be shown.

Without having hope,
God we can’t conceive
without searching for Him
we will never believe.

Without having faith,
God cannot be delighted
without finding Jesus . . .
we’ll always be shortsighted!

~~~~~

Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith
it is impossible
to please him:
for he that cometh to God
must believe that he is,
and that he is a rewarder
of them that diligently
seek him.”

You Can Do It ~

You can move that mountain,
if you believe Jesus can . . .
with His help you can turn it
into a pile of rock and sand.

You can dislodge that mountain,
you can displace it
if you have the strength
of the Holy Spirit.

You can take that mountain,
you can beat the odds
you can conquer it
if you trust in God.

You can banish that mountain,
you can make it depart
you can make it go away
if you believe with all your heart.

You can move that mountain,
God’s power you will receive
if in Jesus . . .
you have the faith to believe!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

upon a new day’s start.

God of the trustful,
Lord of the soul

Whatever God Wills ~

God can do,
whatever He wills
He can move mountains
or turn them into hills.

God can make,
the largest sea to part
He can soften
the stoniest heart.

God can heal,
the sick and the lame
He can remove
the guilt and the shame.

God can turn,
water into wine
He can change minds
cause them to His align.

Oh, the wondrous things,
God wills to do . . .
oh, the marvelous things
He can do in you!

“For thou art great,
and doest wondrous things:
thou art God alone.”

Where the Heart Moors ~

Faith that encourages,
faith that inspires
is a faith in God
that for Him is on fire.

Faith that is calm,
faith that is still
is a faith in God
that seeks His will.

Faith that is small,
faith that is great
is a faith in God
that never abates.

Faith that is strong,
faith that is meek
is a faith in God
that never grows weak.

Faith that rises,
faith that soars
is a faith in God
where the heart moors!

Diligently Seeking ~

Lord, help me each day,
to diligently seek You

I see shinning through.

Give me the dedication,
to study and read
so that in Your Word
I’ll find all that I need.

Lord, help me each day,
to trust in what I believe
give me the patience
so my crown I’ll receive.

Let me have the faith,
most pleasing to You
make me a believer
through and through.

Lord, help me each day,
to wait for Your direction
so that I may be rewarded
with the peace of perfection!

diligently seek him.”

With All Our Heart ~

When we love God,
with all of our heart
from Him we’ll never
what to be apart.

We will pursue Him,
night and day
we will praise Him
when we pray.

When we love God,
with all of our soul
our lives He’ll heal
and make whole.

We will seek Him,
all our living days
we’ll want to know
what are His ways.

When we love God,
with all our mind
His joy and peace
we’ll surely find.

We will trust Him,
for all we need
to His loving will
we’ll start to heed.

When we love God,
with all of our might
for our transgression
we will be contrite.

We will see our need,
for His merciful favor
and receive the grace
of Jesus, our  Savior.

When we mightily love God,
with all our heart and soul
over our minds He will . . .
take complete control!

God Has My Back ~

I have personal needs,
individual wants I lack
but, God always has
my spiritual back.

I trust Him to provide,
for me every day
the patience to keep me
on the narrow way.

I know He will grant,
me with His grace
to meet head on
the trials I face.

I have faith knowing,
He will give me power
to overcome temptation
my every waking hour.

I have many needs,
personal wants I lack
but, I always get wisdom
whenever God I ask!

~~~~~

James 1:4-5

“But let patience have
her perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and entire,
wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God, that giveth
to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him..”

In God I Put My Trust ~

In God I put my trust,
it abides safely there
it cannot be moved
no matter my care.

For, my God is faithful,
He is unchangeable
He’s true to His word
for it is infallible.

In God I put my faith,
it keeps me secure
whatever comes my way
I know I will endure.

For, my God is steady,
He is immovable
with His guidance
anything is possible.

In God I put my trust,
He is my confidence
I willingly abide  . . .
under His providence!

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
