Just Pick Up Your Bible ~

 

If you want by God,
to be taught . . .
just pick up that Bible
you once bought.

For, all you need to know,
is written on every page
if you would only . . .
open it up and engage.

If you need guidance,
on what you should do
pick up your Bible
it will lead you.

Every instruction,
for life that you need
is in your Bible
if it, you would read.

If you want God,
to guide and direct
pick up your Bible
and His Word digest!

Isaiah 48.17

“Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer,
the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord
thy God which teacheth thee to profit,
which leadeth thee by the way that thou
shouldest go.”

On The Path To Heaven ~

Lord may Your steps,
establish my pathway
so I may follow You
each and every day.

Take me to places,
where You want me go
so the Life and Truth
I may live and know.

Lord, take these feet of clay,
shake from them the dust
so I may leave footsteps
of faith, hope and trust.

Guide me as I travel,
on this sparsely walked road
so I may not be lured away
when heavy is my load.

Lord, may Your steps,
lead and guide me
so on the path to heaven . . .
I can walk along with Thee!

~~~~~~

Psalm 85:13

“Righteousness shall
go before him;
and shall set us
in the way of his steps.”

Open Your Eyes To Jesus ~

 

Open your eyes to Jesus,
look for His saving light
and He will give to you
a new a glorious sight.

Open your heart to Jesus,
give Him a home in your life
and He will upon Himself
take your cares and strife.

Open your mind to Jesus,
let Him show you the way
and He will graciously lead
you each and every day.

Open your ears to Jesus,
listen to the words He said
and He will make sure
to heaven you are led.

Open you eyes to Jesus
let Him enter into your soul
and your mind and heart . . .
the Holy Spirit will control!

Ephesians 1:18

“The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his
calling, and what the riches
of the glory of his inheritance
in the saints,”

Good Morning Quote ~08.13.18~


The Crack of Dawn ~

I wake up at dawn,
along with the dew
and rise up my Lord
to get close to You.

My morning I start,
with You in prayer
so to be ready
to give You my care.

Just like a bird early,
who gets the worm
I study Your Word
to keep my faith firm.

I dress in my armor,
make sure it’s on tight
I pray each verse I read
fills me Your might.

Each morning I awake,
with the crack of dawn
so my soul to You Lord
daily may be drawn!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:3

“My voice shalt thou hear
in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I
direct my prayer unto thee,
and will look up.”

Faith Muscles ~

If we’re to have,
spiritual grit . . .
we must keep
our faith muscle fit.

God’s Word we must engage,
so trust can develop
then joy, peace and hope
our lives will envelop.

If we’re to be,
spiritually strong . . .
we’ll need to stop doing
what we know is wrong.

We’ll need to workout,
the sin that is hidden
and to all of our idols
we must say good-ridden.

The muscle of our faith,
we all need to exercise
for it is the very heart . . .
of our eternal prize!

~~~~~~~

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.”

Fake Good News ~

There’s a lot of fake news,
going around today . . .
there’s also a fake Good News
leading many astray.

It’s a gospel that tells you,
with material wealth you’ll be blessed
it’s about living well here and now
and not about eternal rest.

It’s a gospel of tolerance,
with plenty of leeway
to do what you want
not what the Scriptures say.

It’s a gospel that preaches,
if it feel good just do it
don’t worry about being
convicted by the Holy Spirit.

There’s a fake Good News,
from the pulpits being spewed
for the real Gospel of Jesus
by man has been skewed!

~~~~~~

2 Peter 2:1

“But there were false prophets
also among the people, even
as there shall be false teachers
among you, who privily shall
bring in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord that
bought them, and bring upon
themselves swift destruction.”

A Heavenly Conversation ~

Today I decided,
to have a conversation
with God in heaven
about His expectations.

So I inquired of Him,
what He wanted from me
He responded simply with
believe in what you can’t see.

As we continued to converse,
I told Him about my fears
He said keep to trusting Him
for in heaven there’s no tears.

I asked Him how in paradise,
with Him I could forever be
He said by the grace of His Son
and the faith dwelling inside me.

Today God and I,
had an honest discussion
and to His kingdom . . .
He gave me the instructions!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:20

“For our conversation is in heaven;
from whence also we look
for the Saviour,
the Lord Jesus Christ:”

Sticky Note From God ~07.12.18~


Dust Dry ~

On days when I feel,
my faith is dust dry
when my spirit withers
as if it were to die.

I pick up my Bible,
to breathe some life back
into this soul of mine
for the hope that I lack.

On days when I feel,
my faith is desert dry
when the strength in me
takes a parched sigh.

Into the Word of God,
I quickly take a dive
and let the Holy Spirit
my very own revive.

On days when I feel,
an oncoming drought
I use God’s Word to shake
the dust off my doubt!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 119:25

My soul cleaveth unto the dust:
quicken thou me according to thy word.

Crowd Pleasers ~

Crowd pleasers,
filling up the pews
adapting God’s Word
with worldly views.

Changing the truth,
to delight men
not caring if God
they should offend.

Crowd pleasers,
seeking man’s approval
altering scriptures
seeing to their removal.

Seeking and wanting,
needing man’s favor
more than that of
their Lord and Savior.

Crowd pleasers,
filling up Sunday seats
and sadly God’s sheep . . .
are now being fleeced!

~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 12:32

What thing soever I command you,
observe to do it: thou shalt not
add thereto, nor diminish from it.”

1 Thessalonians 2:4

“But as we were allowed of God
to be put in trust with the gospel,
even so we speak; not as pleasing men,
but God, which trieth our hearts.”

Good Morning Quote ~07.03.18~


Be Not Angry ~

Be not angry,
don’t be resentful
let your attitude reflect
all for which you’re grateful.

Be not bitter,
don’t be contentious
let your words chosen
bring to Jesus awareness.

Be not wrathful,
don’t try to get even
let your posture resemble
the reason you’re forgiven.

Be not ill-tempered.
don’t fly off in a rage
let your Bible become
your behavior gauge.

Be not angry,
don’t into sin descend
lest when the sun rises
wrath will be your only friend!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:26

“Be ye angry, and sin not:
let not the sun go down
upon your wrath:”

Deep In My Heart ~

Deep in my heart,
are verses hidden
reminding me why
I am forgiven.

I refer to them,
when satan calls
so into his traps
I will not fall.

Deep in my heart,
God’s Words I keep
they comfort me
whenever I weep.

They’re full of hope,
peace and calm
they are my soul’s
soothing balm.

Deep in my heart,
Scriptures I’ve tucked
so from God’s hand
I cannot be plucked!

~~~~~~

Psalm 119:11

“Thy word
have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin
against Thee.”

Adorn ~

Lord, let me adorn,
the spirit You gave me
with Your holy Word
till it’s You in me I see.

May you find in me,
a spirit incorruptible
let it not ever be . . .
to Your hand untouchable.

Lord, let my spirit be,
peaceful and tranquil
one that is to You
grateful and thankful.

Let me be in Your sight,
some one You cherish
let me have a spirit where
meekness can flourish.

Lord, may my spirit,
with love I adorn
so that Your very own . . .
finds no cause to mourn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 3:4

“But let it be the hidden man of the heart,
in that which is not corruptible,
even the ornament of a meek and quiet
spirit, which is in the sight of God
of great price.”

Offend Me Lord ~

Offend me Lord,
with Your Word
let me be convicted
by the truth heard.

Insult me Lord,
with Your commands
so with false teachers
I’ll not shake hands.

Offend me Lord,
let me feel the sting
that Your reproof
in my life will bring.

Shock me Lord,
let my ears hear
no sinner in heaven
will You let near.

Outrage me Lord,
go ahead and offend
so with the world . . .
I’ll not be a friend!

~~~~~

John 6.61

“When Jesus knew in himself that his
disciples murmured at it,
he said unto them,
Doth this offend you?”

The Need For Salvation ~

 

Some people don’t believe,
that they ever sin
some just don’t get
evilness lives within.

But I can attest,
this is not true
for I’ve read my Bible
all the way through.

Some will tell you,
God doesn’t love us
some say He isn’t
fair-minded or just.

But I can attest,
God’s a God of chances
and it’s His desire
to redeem the masses.

Some people don’t believe,
Jesus came to save
some doubt that He ever
rose from the grave.

But I can attest,
Jesus is our only salvation
and without His love and grace
we’d all be headed for damnation!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 10:9

“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.”

When Torn ~

When torn between,
which road to take
pray before any . . .
conclusion you make.

Don’t be in a hurry,
to make your decision
wait until God gives
a crystal clear vision.

When at a crossroad,
before you move on
pray and ask God
to be Spirit drawn.

Don’t rush ahead,
until He gives the go
for, if you’re patient
the way He will show.

When torn between,
which road to take . . .
always choose the highway
if on God you can’t wait!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

Proverbs 16:17

“The highway of the upright
is to depart from evil:
he that keepeth his way
preserveth his soul.”
