Call Out to God ~

Whenever your spirit,
is overwhelmed within
when you feel your troubles
you are drowning in.

Call out to God,
tell Him about your fear
then watch as to you
He draws close and near.

Whenever you feel,
you’re about to meltdown
when you feel hard pressed
by your cares all around.

Call out to God,
before you fall apart
He will come and release
His peace into your heart.

Whenever your mind,
is weighted down
by all those worries
you carry around.

Call out to God,
when you’re distressed
and with His presence
you will be blessed!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 120.1

“In my distress
I cried
unto the Lord,
and he
heard me.”

That Weighted Down Feeling ~

Carrying a heavy load,
shoulders getting weak
is the weight of your worries
causing your knees to creak?

Problems mounting up,
in way over your head
is the weight of your cares
turning your feet into lead?

Anxiety has your heart,
missing a beat or two
is the weight of your stress
weighing on your mind too?

Well, I have a cure,
for that weighted down feeling
one that will bring to you . . .
peace, hope and healing.

On Jesus cast your cares,
and your anxieties too
for, with His strength
He will empower you!

thoughts within me thy

Oh, What Jesus Can Do for You ~

I see your pain,
I hear your doubt
I know you think
there’s no way out.

But, if Jesus can,
heal the sick and lame
I know for you  . . .
He can do the same.

I hear your sorrow,
I see your grief
I know you think
they’ll be no relief.

But, if Jesus can,
calm the seas at will
I know for you . . .
your heart too will still.

I see your pain,
it’s written on your face . . .
but oh, what Jesus can do
with His love and grace!

Hebrews 4:16

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help
in time of need.”

Rejoicing Always ~

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
when things aren’t going right
it hard to give God thanks . . .
with so many battles to fight.

It’s hard to see God’s hand,
in the middle of the pain
it hard to be grateful
when all your joy is drained.

But we who have Jesus,
living inside of us
know how important it is
in Him to always trust.

For, to always be rejoicing,
takes prayer continually
and then our thanks to God
will come unceasingly.

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
with all that life brings . . .
but, we know it’s God will
to be thankful for all things!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.”

God’s Storehouse ~

God has a storehouse,
filled to the brim
for all those who believe
and trust in Him.

There’s an endless supply,
of mercy and grace
awaiting those who by faith
His goodness embrace.

God has a storehouse,
He wants to provide
all things that are good
you’ll not be denied.

It’s full of forgiveness,
hope, peace and rest
with the riches and glory
in Jesus you’ll blessed.

God has a storehouse,
He wants for you to share
so other people burdens . . .
you too, may help to bear!

~~~~~~

“But my God shall supply
all your need according
to his riches in glory
by Christ Jesus.”

In The Right Direction ~

Sometimes God,
needs to get my attention
so He can reestablish
with Him a connection.

So He sends into my life,
trials and tribulations
to see if I will trust Him
with all their complications.

Sometimes God,
needs to redirect my life
by giving me things
that will cause me strife.

He wants to know,
how deep my faith goes
so that my weaknesses
to me He can expose.

Sometimes God,
has to get my attention
so He can keep me going
in the right direction!

~~~~

1 Peter 1:6-7

“Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though now for a season,
if need be, ye are in
heaviness through
manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious
than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise
and honour and glory at
the appearing of Jesus Christ:”

Autumn’s Peace ~

Oh Lord, may this Autumn,
You bring perfect rest
for those who are feeling
weary and hard pressed.

May You send to them,
peace and tranquility
may You bless them too
with hope’s serenity.

Oh Lord, may this Autumn,
Your mercy sprinkle down
on all of those who need
to sense Your calm around.

May you give to them,
a peaceful, settled mind
so that for a season
Your quietness they may find.

Oh Lord, may this Autumn,
bring a needed reprieve
so those who are weary
Your peace can receive!

~~~~~~~~~

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.

So Many Needs ~

So many needs,
so many cares
causing His sheep
so much despair.

When will they seek,
when will they come
to the One who will
bear every one?

So many problems,
so many concerns
causing His sheep
thoughts to churn.

When will they know,
when will they find
Jesus is waiting
to comfort their mind?

So many doubts,
so many questions
causing His sheep
bouts of depression.

When will they see,
when will they hear
Jesus is wanting
to calm their fear?

So many defeated,
so many gone astray
so many we can lead . . .
back to Jesus today!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;
we have turned
every one to
his own way;
and the Lord
hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”

Prayers For You My Friend ~

God put you my friend,
on my heart today
He told me for you
He wanted me to pray.

So I went to Him,
while on my knees
and sent up for you
theses heartfelt pleas.

Oh, Father whatsoever,
is Your perfect will
till my friend knows
help them to be still.

Take away their fears,
guard their heart and mind
so that on this journey
your peace they can find.

Be with them always,
do not leave their side
let the Light in Your Word
be their constant guide.

Give them Your power,
the courage to press on
let them claim victory
in the name of Your Son.

Help them not to get tired,
in the battle they must fight
let them feel energized
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

Oh, Father I believe,
you listen to our prayers
and so I come to You  . . .
with my friend’s earthly cares!

~~~~~~~~~

James 5:16

“Confess your faults one to another,
and pray one for another,
that ye may be healed.
The effectual fervent prayer
of a righteous man availeth much.”

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!

~~~~~~~~

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

Thing’s I Can’t Handle ~

I’ve heard people simply say,
God will not give me
anything I can’t handle . . .
but, with them I don’t agree.

For, I’ve looked in my Bible,
and saw how I’d be tested
once my life in Jesus . . .
became fully invested.

He said I’d face tribulation,
that I would be persecuted
and for my faith in Him
I could even be executed.

He said I’d have trials,
many worries and cares
that my very own cross
daily I’d have to bear.

So, when people tell me this,
I look right into their eyes . . .
and tell them I can’t handle things
unless His strength I excise!

“I can do all things
through Christ
which strengtheneth me.”

Oh, My Anxious Child ~

One day I asked the Lord,
what is it I should do . . .
how can I possibly give
all my cares to You?

He said to me my child,
it’s easy if you will . . .
believe I am the One
who can your troubles still.

I thought this over,
for a minute or two
but, I still needed Him
to tell me just how to.

So I asked Him again,
Lord, how can I release
the burdens I carry
so I can have Your peace?

He said to me my child,
true rest you will find
if you let Me guard
your heart and your mind.

I knew the Lord was right,
so I began to pray
and when I was done
here’s what He had to say . . .

Be not anxious my child,
but in every thing by prayer
give me your thanksgiving
and I’ll take from you your care!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

” Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing
by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving
let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your
hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

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.”

Perhaps ~

Sometimes I look,
but I don’t always see
the plans God has
awaiting just for me.

Perhaps I’m too busy,
focusing on my pain
or maybe it’s in my life
there’s been so much rain.

Sometimes I find myself,
wrap up in just me
that God purposes
are just too hard to see.

Perhaps I’m spending,
too much time away
from the Word of God
to see what He’s to say.

Sometimes to be honest,
I worry way too much
and I remain blind  . . .
to Jesus’ healing touch!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:27-29

“And when Jesus departed thence,
two blind men followed him,
crying, and saying,
Thou son of David, have mercy on us.

And when he was come
into the house, the blind men
came to him: and Jesus saith
unto them, Believe ye that I am
able to do this?
They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

Then touched he their eyes, saying,
According to your faith be it unto you.”

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.”

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.”

God Of The Hopeful ~

God of the watchful,
Lord of the heart
establish Your ways
upon a new day’s start.

God of the trustful,
Lord of the soul
gives us Your strength
our day be in control.

God of the faithful,
Lord of the mind
may your peace
today we again find.

God of the hopeful,
Lord of our life
give us the courage
to give You our strife.

God of the watchful,
Lord of the heart
from Your righteous way
today, may we not part!

My Soul Thirsts ~

Lord, in the aridness,
of my heart and soul
I am thirsty for You
to reign and take control.

I long to absorb and drink,
from Your holy Word
to feel the Living Waters
in my mind being stirred.

Lord, in the dryness,
of my daily reality
I thirst for You to bring
a hopeful vitality.

I long to be nourished,
with the Truth and Life
to feel Your stilling peace
eat away my earthly strife.

Lord, my soul thirsts,
for You solely . . .
tis why I seek You
with my heart wholly!

~~~~~~

Psalm 63:1

“O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;”

The Fires of Affliction ~

Are you in the midst,
of the fires of affliction
are you dealing with
the heat of its conviction?

Are you brought to tears,
from the battle you’re in
is it hard letting go
of your besetting sin?

Are you struggling,
enduring the purification
is your faith being tested
beyond your expectations?

Well, if you are facing,
God’s refining pot . . .
know He needs to get
the flames burning hot.

For, He is purging out of you,
everything worthless . . .
so He can make you ready
for His divine service!

but not with silver;
I have chosen thee in

Decluttering ~

Today I’m decluttering,
my heart and my mind
dumping all the things
I keep dragging behind.

I’ll be getting rid of,
any bitterness I see
and if there be envy
I’ll purge it right out of me.

I’ll toss away the guilt,
dispose of the shame
free any need to point
to others any blame.

I’ll remove all the fear,
eradicate any doubt
eliminate the dread
so to block anxiety out.

Today, I’m decluttering,
so I can stay on track
I’ll destroy the dead weight
that’s been holding me back!

~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1

“Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so
easily beset us, and let us
run with patience the race
that is set before us,”

Once Again Reborn ~

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:23

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth
for ever.”

Guarding Your Heart and Mind ~

Whatever has you sleepless,
whatever keeps you awake
whatever makes you feel
your heart’s about to break.

Give it all to Jesus,
in your thankful prayer
and He will lift you from
your grief and despair.

Whatever is your worry,
whatever may be your care
whatever is that burden
that you must daily bear.

Give them all to Jesus,
let Him have everything
then your soul will find
rest that is everlasting.

Whatever has you weary,
whatever causes you stress
whatever makes you feel
hopeless and depress.

Give it all to Jesus,
let Him guard your mind
then your heart He will still
and His peace you will find.

Whatever has you anxious,
take it to Jesus in prayer
then release all your fears
and leave them in His care!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth all
understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

“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!
