Faith Believes ~

Faith comes,
from Bible reading
hearing, listening
and then heeding.

Faith rises,
in hearts that desire
to be filled with
Holy Spirit’s fire.

Faith grows,
when it’s assured
in things not seen
it’s safely secured.

Faith trusts,
nothings impossible
for it knows with God
all is possible.

Faith believes,
with all its soul
for it knows . . .
God’s in control!

~~~~~~

Romans 10:17

“So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God.”

God Helps Me To Know ~

God helps me to know,
His mercy He’ll show
when I go to His throne
His grace will be shown.

He helps me to grow,
when into His Word I go
He enlightens my vision
by giving me His wisdom.

God helps me to be calm,
He is my soothing balm
when I need comforting
He eases my suffering.

He makes me strong,
when things go wrong
He gives me boldness
by His closeness.

God helps me to know,
the way I should go
when to Him I pray
He shows me the way!

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace, that
we may obtain mercy, and find

A Deep Satisfaction God Has ~

 

A deep satisfaction,
God gets from us
when we place in Him
our faith and trust.

For when we give Him,
all our imperfections
we open up our hearts
to His corrections.

A deep gratification,
God has for us
when we give Him
every ounce of our trust.

For when on His power,
we daily come to seek
He rewards with the strength
to be humble and meek.

A deep pleasure,
God takes in us
when on Him . . .
we learn to trust!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Thank You Heavenly Father ~

Thank you Father,
for being there
for making me
to You aware.

Thank you Father,
for being kind
for allowing me
Your love to find.

Thank you Father,
for hearing my plea
for showing mercy
to a sinner like me.

Thank you Father,
for sending Your Son
for His grace to finish
what You begun.

Thank you Father,
for all You do . . .
thank You my heart
You choose to pursue!

Active Participation ~

I know that mountains high,
I know it looks impossible
but, I also know with God
all things are possible.

I know that rivers deep,
I know its looks menacing
but, I also know for God
it will be worth my crossing.

I know that valleys low,
I know all its up and downs
but, I also know with God
the obstacles I’ll get around.

I know that oceans wide,
I know its under current
but, I also know with God
it needn’t be a deterrent.

I know that faith takes,
a lot of determination
for, I know trust in God
takes active participation!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

A Life-Giving Stream ~

Lord help me to be,
a life-giving stream
where love flows endless
without border or seam.

Let me be like a river,
flowing with peace
so worldly darkness
Your light can breach.

Lord help be to be,
like a babbling brook
flowing with the truth
found in Your Good book.

Let me be like a creek,
even if it be a small trickle
for I never know how . . .
You might use that ripple.

Lord, help me to be like a river,
a stream, brook or creek
keep Your Spirit flowing in me
whether strong or weak!

~~~~~~

John 7:37-38

In the last day,
that great day of the feast,
Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst,
let him come unto me, and drink.

He that believeth on me,
as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow
rivers of living water.

Forever Grateful ~

I am thankful,
I am blessed
for I have found
in Jesus rest.

I am content,
I am delighted
for in my life . . .
Jesus I invited.

I am grateful,
I am satisfied
for in Jesus
I am purified.

I am loved,
I am at peace
for Jesus brings
my soul release.

I am blessed,
I am thankful
to Jesus, I am
forever grateful!

Jesus Is My Yes ~

Jesus is my yes,
He is my Amen . . .
for all of God’s promises
flow right out of Him.

Jesus is my truth,
He is my absolute
for God’s tender mercy
in me He imputes.

Jesus is my grace,
He is my true salvation
for God suffered Him
to save me from damnation.

Jesus is my hope,
He is my Lord and Life
for God sent Him
to take Himself my strife.

Jesus is my yes,
He is my hallelujah Amen . . .

Completely Invested ~

Faith that is tried,
is faith that knows
the way through troubles
God always shows.

For we know He will make,
a pathway out
whenever we give Him
our fear and doubt.

Faith that is tested,
is faith that is strong
for it knows trials
never steer us wrong.

For we know for God
we need to be bold
so He purifies us
to be just like gold.

Faith willing to be tried,
faith that opts to be tested
is faith in Jesus . . .
completely invested!

~~~~~~~

“But he knoweth
the way that I take:
when he hath tried me,
I shall come forth as gold.”

Grieve Not ~

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
nor the effects of His grace
don’t let your appetites
be with corruption laced.

For mighty are the works,
He has in store for you
but, you must allow
His power to come through.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
with your lying, clamoring lips
do not cause Him grief
by your bitter. angry quips.

For He cannot provide,
His strength in your life
if you continue to give
others heartache and strife.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
for it is God’s seal on you
it’s the mark of the souls
who keep heaven in their view!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:30

“And grieve not the holy Spirit
of God, whereby ye are sealed
unto the day of redemption.”

I am So Thankful ~

God, I am so thankful,
there is no other like You
I am so grateful
for all that You do.

You are wise and fair,
loving and kind
You bring sweet peace
to both heart and mind.

Lord, I am so thankful,
there is no one besides You
I am so grateful
You always remain true.

You are a just and loyal,
holy and divine
You provide wisdom
when ears are inclined.

Father, I am so thankful,
that You are You . . .
for there’s no one else
who can do what You do!

~~~~~~~~

O Lord God: for there is none like thee,

The Sting of Death ~

 

When the sting of death,
first burned into my soul
I never thought again
I could be made whole.

But God sent to me,
all the grace I needed
as the tide of grief
ebbed and receded.

When the sting of death,
brought its gloomy sorrow
I didn’t think I could ever
face another tomorrow.

But God sent to me,
new rays of hope
filled with His strength
helping me to cope.

When the sting of death,
at first left me reeling
God in His time sent me . . .
inner peace and healing!

Crossroads~

Often at a crossroad,
we decide the way
we think we should go
before we even pray.

We trust our intuition,
so we make the choice
without listening to . . .
the Holy Spirit’s voice.

We start off down the path,
we thought was best for us
forgetting it’s God’s will
and not ours we should trust.

We grow more unsure,
with each step we take
until we start wishing
the choice we didn’t make.

So next time at a crossroad,
before you make a decision
pray first asking God to give  . . .
you guidance and wisdom!

~~~~~~~

James 1:5

“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.”

Rock Bottom ~

Hitting rock bottom
having a hard time
thinking not another
mountain to climb?

Well, don’t you ever forget,
just who is your Rock
or who over that mountain
will help you to walk.

Up against a rock,
and a hard place
thinking you should
just quit the race?

Well don’t you give up,
hold on to the Rock
and through that valley
He will help you walk.

Having a hard time,
in your faithful walk?
Well don’t you forget
Jesus is your Rock!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 10:4

“And did all drink
the same spiritual drink:
for they drank of that
spiritual Rock that
followed them:
and that Rock was Christ.

Giving Thanks In Everything ~

Giving thanks in everything,
is God’s will for you
for He is praiseworthy
to receive His glory due.

For when you are grateful,
peace will flood your heart
then into it faith and trust
will come and do its part.

Giving thanks for all things,
is God’s true desire
no matter your situation
let it your praise inspire.

For when you are thankful,
for and in everything
His steadfast love will help
you get over anything.

Giving thanks no matter,
where you are in this life
will allow Jesus to help you
overcome all of your strife!

God’s Advantage Point ~

Today I prayed,
asking God what to do
and He responded . . .
My will you need to pursue.

I asked Him how,
His will I may know
and He answered
My Word the way will show.

So I bowed my head,
and opened up my mind
to the truth I knew
I was about to find.

And there it was in print,
what He wanted of me
as my eyes opened up
His answer I could see.

Today I prayed,
and God did not disappoint
for He showed me what to do
from His advantage point!

will of the Lord is.”

Morning Praise ~

When the morning comes,
as the sun rises above
sing your praise to the Lord
for His mercy and His love.

Let Him know you’ll need,
the strength of His power
right upon the start
of your waking hour.

When the new day breaks,
as the sun shows its bright face
thank and praise the Lord
for His life-saving grace.

Let Him know how much,
you count on Him to be
a refuge and a defense
for the day ahead of thee.

When the morning dew,
catches its first beam of light
let your praises to the Lord
fill you will His holy might!

~~~~~

“But I will sing of thy power;

Jesus Will Console You ~

When heavy on your heart,
is your every care . . .
as they become too much
for you alone to bear.

comfort and relief
and console you through
all that’s causing your grief.

When hefty on your mind,
are worrisome thoughts
as they set out to bind
your faith into knots.

Humbled ~

Humble me Lord,
show me my pride
I know it from You
I cannot hide.

Let me see where,
my ego’s overblown
so from its pedestal
it can be dethroned.

Humble me Lord,
take me to my knees
so that all the glory
I can give to Thee.

Let my eyes be opened,
to my narcissist ways
for You are the only One
worthy of my praise.

Humble me Lord,
as only You can do
for all of my praise . . .
belongs to only You!

with the power of His might
until with the saints you enter
into His holy, glorious light.

Giving thanks unto the Father,

of the saints in light:”

Faith So Small ~

Faith as small,
as a tiny seed
is all the faith
at first you’ll need.

For what starts out,
as faith so little
Jesus’ will strengthen
so it’s not so brittle.

Faith as tiny,
as a grain of sand
is all the faith
you’ll need at hand.

For what starts out,
as faith so petite
will one day in Jesus
be made complete.

Faith that is little,
faith that is small
grows into greater faith
the more on Jesus you call!

~~~~~~

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.”

A Clean, New Heart ~

 
A clean heart Lord,
create in us
one free of sin
evil and lust.
 
Free of worldliness,
free of selfish greed
free to see You are
everything we need.
 
A renewed Spirit Lord,
put into us
one that will always
in You put its trust.
 
Alert and resistant,
to the lies satan tells
one where Your own Spirit
abides and dwells.
 
A clean heart create,
a right spirit bestow
Lord in our lives
so Your will we may know!

spirit within me.”

Walking Upright ~

Walking upright,
takes a lot of skill
but it’s easy . . .
if you know God’s will.

For in your heart,
God will speak
and the truth
you’ll want to seek.

Walking upright,
is not too hard
if you let God be
your shield and guard.

For He will show you,
His righteous way
and all things good
He’ll bring to your day.

Walking upright,
can surely be done . .
if you follow the steps
of God’s beloved Son!

~~~~~

Psalm 15:1-2

“Lord, who shall abide
in thy tabernacle? who shall
dwell in thy holy hill?

He that walketh uprightly,
and worketh righteousness,
and speaketh the truth
in his heart.”

“For the Lord God is a sun
and shield: the Lord will
give grace and glory:
no good thing will he
withhold from them that
walk uprightly.”
