Sticky Note to God 01.03.18


The Perfect Way of God ~

God’s way is perfect,
it leads to His Son
where grace and forgiveness
is offered to everyone.

God’s way is peaceful,
if you trust and believe
God’s mercy and favor
for yours sins you’ll receive.

God’s way is righteous,
it is tried and true
it’s where you will find
why Jesus died for you.

God’s way is direct,
it is holy and straight
leading all who follow it
through the narrow gate.

God’s way is perfect,
it leads to salvation
removing the curse . . .
of eternal damnation!

~~~~

Psalm 18:30

“As for God, his way is perfect:
the word of the Lord is tried:
he is a buckler to all those
that trust in 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.”

I Need to Know ~

Lord, I need to know,
how to be still . . .
I want to understand
Your perfect will.

I desire to believe,
You’re in control
I long to feel
trust in my soul.

I seek to find,
Your peace ideal
I search to discover
Your mercy’s real.

I wish to have,
faith complete
I care to believe
You’re my retreat.

Lord I need to know,
how to truly rest . . .
while You’re working out
for me, Your very best!

and wait patiently for him:”

I Came Into This World A Sinner ~

I came into the world,
with not one single thing
and when I go to see Jesus
there’s nothing I can bring.

For, my treasures on earth,
will rust from corruption
but, in heaven they’ve been
everlasting from conception.

I have a lot of stuff,
making my life comfortable
but, they are all to God . . .
worthless and corruptible.

For, God has for me,
eternal life as my treasure
where peace and joy
will flow without measure.

I came into this world,
as a sinner, but I will leave
as someone who in Jesus
has trusted and believed!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust
doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Sticky Note From God 04.07.17


I AM The Resurrection ~

I am the Resurrection,
I am the Life . . .
I am the One who took
upon Myself your strife.

Though someday you’ll die,
eternal life to you I give
if for your sins
you believe I will forgive.

I am the One chosen,
I am my Father’s favor
I am the Christ Jesus
your Lord and Savior.

One day in heaven,
together we will be
but, you must have faith
My Father sent Me.

I am the Resurrection,
new life I bring you
but, you must believe
in Me, for this to be true!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 11:25-26

“Jesus said unto her,
I am the resurrection,
and the life:
he that believeth in me,
though he were dead,
yet shall he live:

And whosoever
liveth and believeth

in me shall never die.
Believest thou this?”

God To The Rescue ~

Desperate times,
takes trust courageous
they take knowing
God will deliver us.

Hopeless situations,
takes prayers plentiful
they take believing
God’s arm is stretchable.

Dire circumstances,
takes faith fearless
they take convincing
God knows His business.

Dreadful conditions,
takes belief unbelievable
they take awareness
with God all is achievable.

Desperate times,
takes prayer, faith and trust
they take confidence
God will come rescue us!

Faith is Speaking to You ~

Faith is Speaking To You ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Shh, do you hear it,
do you hear faith speaking
in your heart of heart’s
do you hear it whispering?

Do you hear the words,
God has just for you
do you know the plans
He has for you to do?

Do you hear the words,
deep down in your soul
give Me your life
so I can take control?

Do you hear the words,
trust in Me and believe
so the power of My spirit
in your life you can receive?

Shh, do you hear it,
faith is speaking to you
if you listen closely . . .
it will witness to you too!

and hearing by the word of God.”

A Believing Heart ~

A Believing Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A believing heart is set,
on things from above
it abides securely
in God’s love.

Hope springs up from it,
mercy rests inside
a believing heart knows
its needs are supplied.

A believing heart is set,
on grace and faith alone
it knows without Jesus
for its sins it can’t atone.

Peace rises from it,
strength and power too
a believing heart is convinced
all things are possible to do.

A believing heart is set,
the Word of God it receives
it shares with the world
why in Jesus it believes!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 10:9-10

“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.

For with the heart man believeth
unto righteousness; and with the
mouth confession is made
unto salvation.”

It’s Up to Me ~

It's Up to Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God’s given me faith,
that’s mountain moveable
and it’s up to me . . .
to use all available.

He’s given me power,
that is incredible
and it’s up to me . . .
to do the impossible.

He’s given me strength,
that is invisible
and it’s up to me . . .
to believe in miracles.

He’s given me trust,
that is  inconceivable
and it’s up to me . .
to do the unbelievable.

God’s given me faith,
that’s mountain moveable
so that I would believe. . .
with Him all is doable!

~~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Something New ~

All Things New ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He made us,
into something new
and we must believe
this to be true.

Lest to doubt,
we will succumb
and our faith . . .
will be humdrum.

He is planning,
a new path for us
and we must always
in Him trust.

Lest to temptation,
we will surely fall
and our faith . . .
will be weak and small.

He is working,
out His perfect plan
and we must believe
to leave it, in His hand.

Lest to fear,
we will give in
and our faith . . .
will start to dim.

He is working,
in You and I
and He will not quit
until the day we die!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

It’s All About Believing ~

It's About Believing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s not about who,
got us to the starting line
it’s about believing . . .
Jesus is the One True Vine.

It’s not about what,
we were doing before
it’s about believing . . .
Jesus came to restore.

It’s not about when,
we decided to join in
it’s about believing . . .
Jesus died for our sin.

It’s not about where,
we got the Good Word
it’s about believing . . .
in the truth we heard.

It’s not about why,
we decided to trust
it’s about believing . . .
Jesus lives inside of us.

It’s not about how,
we got into the race
it’s about believing . . .
in mercy, love and grace.

It’s not about you,
and it’s not about me
it’s about believing . . . .
in what we cannot see!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you with
all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope, through
the power of the Holy Ghost.”

I’m Waiting Lord ~

Waiting for God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Vereses Photo

I’m waiting Lord,
waiting just on You
I know deep down . . .
You will come through.

I’m believing Lord,
with all my heart and soul
for I know You are . . .
the one who’s in control.

I’m trusting Lord,
trusting whatever You do
I know everything . . .
is completely up to You.

I’m expecting Lord,
in You, I will rest
knowing that You know
what for me is best.

Lord, I’m waiting
waiting just for You
I’ll keep believing . . .
no matter what You do!

Free Love ~

 

God’s love is free of charge,
there are no strings attached
there’s nothing you need to do
there are no works attached.

God’s love is unconditional,
it doesn’t matter who you are
God loves you whether to Him
you are near, aloof, or far.

God’s love is sacrificial,
He gave His only begotten Son
not just to a few chosen . . .
but to each and everyone.

God’s love is accessible,
to anyone who will believe
~ Jesus died for their sins ~
forgiveness they will receive.

God’s love is nonjudgmental,
He wishes not one soul to perish
eternal life He offers all
if Jesus, you love and cherish.

God’s love is free of charge,
there are no strings attached
the liberation of His grace . . .
in the world, is still unmatched!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

God Moves Mountains ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Photo by Ron Manke Creation Swap

You can move that mountain,
you can scale that obstacle
you can get over that barrier . . .
for with God, all things are possible.

You’ll need to have plenty of faith,
on your own, you will only quit . . .
you have to believe that it is God
who will get you up and over it.

There can be no doubting,
no thinking, this can’t be done
God will give you His strength
through, Jesus Christ, His Son.

You will need to keep on praying,
if His power, you want to receive
asking God for all of His might . . .
then you have to trust and believe.

God’s good at moving mountains,
He’s moved plenty of them before
and now He wants to give you . . .
the strength and power to move yours!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mark 11:22-24

“And Jesus answering
saith unto them,
Have faith in God.

For verily I say unto you,
That whosoever
shall say unto this mountain,

Be thou removed,
and be thou cast into the sea;
and shall not doubt in

his heart, but shall believe
that those things which
he saith shall

come to pass;
he shall have
whatsoever he saith.

Therefore I say unto you,
What things soever ye desire,
when ye pray,

believe that ye receive them,
and ye shall have them.”

My Savior ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ it-is-not-the-strength-of-your-faith used with permission IBible Verses

When I was lost,
Jesus found me
He opened my eyes
so His grace I’d see.

When I wandered,
Jesus looked for me
He brought me home
so His mercy I’d see.

When I stumbled,
Jesus caught me
He loosened my load
so His favor I’d see.

When I failed,
Jesus helped me
He shined His light
so the way I’d see.

When I doubted,
Jesus held on to me
He showed me His hands
so His scars I’d see!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 20:27

“Then saith he to Thomas,
Reach hither thy finger,
and behold my hands;
and reach hither thy hand,
and thrust it into my side:
and be not faithless,
but believing.”

Go To God ~

God is Faithfull  by Nathan Vanhorn CreationSwap

When facing adversity,
when problems are all about
don’t try on your own
to figure them all out.

Don’t worry over them,
or guess at what to do
don’t come up with a scheme
or reason your way through

Instead ~ go to God,
trust Him with your cares
believing He will answer
the desires of your prayers.

Then walk out in faith,
and see where He will lead
sing to Him your praises
till He satisfies your need!

~~~~~~~~~~~


Psalm 9:10

“And they that know thy name
will put their trust in thee:
for thou, Lord, hast not
forsaken them that seek thee.”
