Beyond The Cross ~

Beyond the cross,
there’s a glorious view
for in Jesus’ death . . .
all things are made new.

New beginnings,
fresh clean starts
eternal hope
to fill our hearts.

Beyond the cross,
there is new life
the end to sin
and worldly strife.

No more battles,
no more struggles
no more satan
causing troubles.

Beyond the cross,
there are no fears
no death, no pain
and no more tears.

Despair will end,
suffering will cease
there will only be
everlasting peace.

Beyond the cross,
hope springs anew
all because Jesus . . .
died for me and you!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

“Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;

who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,

despising the shame,
and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.”

Breaking The Chain of Pain ~

Living in the past,
is so easy to do . . .
it’s not hard to recall
the bad things done to you.

Letting go is not so simple,
there’s no effort in hanging on
and to forget the past images
takes an awful lot of brawn.

So, we live with the despair,
the heartaches and the pain
and the peace God promised
our misery will only drain.

It’s not until we come,
to a place where we forgive
that we find the tranquility
in which God wants us to live.

So, if you are in the shackles,
which bind you to the past
let Jesus release your burden
and you’ll be free at last!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:22

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

Out Of Whack ~

When your life,
is out of whack
it’s time to take
a step back.

You need to look,
at all that you do
asking Jesus . . .
is this done for You?

When your life,
is lopsided
it’s time to stop
being blindsided.

You need to see,
satan for what he is
and not let him
make you one of his.

When your life,
is out of control
it’s time to look
deep into your soul!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 16:26

For what is a man profited,
if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?
or what shall a man give in
exchange for his soul?

Everyone Has Something ~

Everyone has something,
messing up their day
everyone has new storms
freshly blowing their way.

Everyone has problems,
throwing them off course
everyone has troubles
coming at them full force.

Everyone has dilemmas,
they need to address
everyone has anxieties
causing them to stress.

Everyone has worries,
tossing them about
everyone has concerns
they need to work out.

But, we who have Jesus,
needn’t be aghast . . .
for onto Him our cares
we can freely broadcast!

~~~~~~~

Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.

Perhaps Today My Lord Will Come ~

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will come
perhaps today I’ll see
my Lord on the clouds
coming down for me.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will call
perhaps today I’ll hear
the sound of His trumpet
telling me He is here.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will show
perhaps today I’ll catch
that twinkling in my eyes
and be taken in a snatch.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will arrive
perhaps today I’ll leave
with my Savior to paradise
along with all who believe.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will come
perhaps today I’ll be
forever in peace with Him
in the bliss of eternity!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 24:30

“And then shall appear the sign
of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes

in the clouds of heaven with
power and great glory.”

1 Corinthians 15:52

“In a moment, in the twinkling
of an eye, at the last trump:
for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised

be changed.”

Blessed Is She ~

Blessed is she who believes,
who mediates and prays
for she is able to hear
the things God has to say.

Blessed is she who has faith,
who is Holy Spirit filled
for she can understand
what is God’s perfect will.

Blessed is she who trusts,
God in and for all things
for she knows His favor
into her life He will bring.

Blessed is she who hopes,
whose thoughts are higher
for her joy is in knowing
the future will be brighter.

Blessed is she who believes,
whose hope and trust glows
for her heart leaps and bounds
because her Savior she knows!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 1:45

“And blessed is she that believed:
for there shall be a performance
of those things which were told

The Sound Of Silence ~

Upon the break of day,
I feel a calming stillness . . .
where everything appears
to be oddly motionless.

The sedated quietness,
infiltrates the early dawn
to the sound of silence
I find myself gently drawn.

The placid tranquility,
awakens up my soul
to ponder how only God
could this quietude control.

The peace radiating down,
seems so imaginable
that in its grip I remain
completely immovable.

Surrounded in the silence,
I sense this to be
just the kind of stillness . . .
that Jesus wants for me!

Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God:

When Fear Chases You ~

When fear chases you,
before you get caught
there is a refuge . . .
for you God has got.

It’s a place of safety,
for you to run into
where dread and panic
cannot overtake you.

When your heart starts,
frantically racing
and your hands begin
violently shaking.

Run to the fortress,
of peace and trust
for it is where God
promises to meet us.

Before fear chases you,
into a dreadful fright
into God’s shelter . . .
run with all your might!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1-2

“He that dwelleth in the
secret place of the most
High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord,
He is my refuge and my
fortress: my God;
in him will I trust.”

Puncture Wounds ~

When life leaves,
a puncture wound
don’t let your faith
by it be consumed.

For when we hurt,
God can replace
the pain and ache
with His grace.

When life pokes,
and picks at you
don’t let your trust
be pricked at too.

For when we hurt,
God can repair
the brokenness
of our despair.

When life’s wounds,
have you feeling . . .
hurt and bruised
ask God for healing!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 147:3

“He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.”

God, My Refuge ~

God is my refuge,
a retreat for my soul
where life’s pressures
cannot take their toll.

His wings protect me,
a shelter they provide
whenever I am weary
a perfect place to hide.

God is my refuge,
a harbor to where I flee
whenever I’m tossed
upon life’s stormy sea.

When I need strength,
for the troubles I get in
I just turn to the Lord
my refuge from within.

God is my refuge,
a stronghold He is to me
an always present help . . .
I’ve found Him to be!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:1

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”

Psalm 91:1-2

“Whoever dwells in the shelter
of the Most High will rest in
the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD,
‘He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.’”

Let Jesus Fight For You ~

Jesus will fight for you,
just give Him your battle
He knows without Him
you’re weak and fragile.

All you have to do,
is pass your cares along
then wait and be still
till He makes you strong.

Jesus will fight for you,
all you have to do is ask
then all of your troubles
onto Him you must cast.

Soon you will have,
peace filling your heart
keeping your mind
from unraveling apart.

Jesus will fight for you,
on this you can be sure
for the battle is His . . .
not yours alone to endure!

When Doubt Whispers ~

When doubt whispers,
in your ear . . .
tell it right away
to get out of here.

For if you listen,
to what it has to say
it will ruin
the rest of your day.

When doubt looks,
into your eyes
don’t you believe
its fearful lies.

For if you believe,
what it wants you to
with your thoughts
it will twist and skew.

When doubt comes,
close and near
don’t look at it
or give it an ear!

~~~~~~

James 1:6

But let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering.
For he that wavereth
is like a wave of the sea
driven with the wind
and tossed.

God Gives Shade ~

God gives shade,
to us when weary
provides a cover
when we’re dreary.

He shadows us with,
His mighty wings
helps us to rise
above all things.

God gives shade,
to us when frayed
provides a screen
when burden lade.

He shields us with,
His right hand
holds us upright
when we can’t stand.

God gives shade,
to us when dismayed
so His glory on us . . .
can be displayed!

My Life Is God’s ~

My life is God’s,
to Him it belongs
His plans for me
I gladly go along.

In Him I live,
He moves my soul
to believe He is . . .
the One in control.

My life is God’s,
and not my own
only for how long
by Him is known.

In Him I exist,
my breath is His
for I’m convinced
it’s the way it is.

My life is God’s,
my being springs
from Him who created
all living things!

My Cup Is Brimming ~

My cup is quite full,
in fact it’s brimming
for in God’s mercy
I’m gleefully swimming.

My cup is full of joy,
glorious and triumphant
for Jesus has filled it
with grace abundant.

My cup is full of hope,
that keeps expanding
for its full of life
blissfully unending.

My cup is full of peace,
of a future brighter
for I know Jesus is
salvation’s provider.

My cup is quite full,
joy flows past the brim
for my life to Jesus . . .
I’ve surrendered to Him!

Praise God Anyway ~

When you’re feeling stuck,
in life and its daily ruts
when you feel as if . . .
you’re just plain going nuts.

Take a short breather,
a minute or even two
and think of all that God
has performed just for you.

When you’re sick and tired,
and away you want to run
when life’s daily routines
are not one iota of fun.

Take a short break,
a second or even two
and think of all that Jesus
has carried just for you.

When stuck you’re feeling
before you run away
just take a short breather . . .
and praise God anyway!

Make haste Lord,
do not be slow
Your help I need
for You to bestow.

Hurry up Lord,
do not tarry
alone this burden
I cannot carry.

Come quickly Lord,
do not delay
send more mercy
to me straight away.

Speed it up Lord,
do not meander
save me swiftly
from this disaster.

Make haste Lord,
run if You will
I so need You . . .
my heart to still!

Your Rapturous Love ~

Thank You Jesus,

to me it’s like . . .
a taste of heaven above.

It anoints me with,
a hopeful tranquility
gives my faith
a buoyant stability.

Thank You Jesus,
for Your gentle ease
to me it’s like . . .
a perfumed breeze.

It refreshes me with,
a jubilant thankfulness

a humble gratefulness.

Thank You Jesus,
for being God’s sweet savour
for without Your sacrifice . . .
I would have no Savior!

Sticky Note to God ~02.28.19 ~


Renewed Each Day ~

I would have lost heart,
given up on spiritual things
I would have fainted away
from the troubles life brings.

I would have passed out,
lost my faith and my hope
I would have lost count
just thrown in the rope.

I would have sunk under,
the pressure of my fears
I would have called it quits
amidst all of my tears.

I would have been crushed,
under my heavy load
I would have gotten off
the narrow traveled road.

I would have lost heart,
if each day I wasn’t renewed
I would have given up Lord . . .
if I didn’t keep my eyes on You!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

“Therefore we do not lose heart.
Though
outwardly we are
wasting away,yet inwardly 

we are being renewed day by day.
For our 
light affliction,
which is but for a moment, is 

working for us a far more exceeding
and 
eternal weight of glory,
while we do not look 

at the things which are seen,
but at the 
things which are not seen.
For the things
which are seen
are temporary,
but the things 
which are not seen
are eternal.”

Give Us Peace Lord ~

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
on our heavy hearts bestow
the peace that surpasses . . .
all the worries that we know.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our dreary, weary souls
give us idyllic, flawless peace
over things we can’t control.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our fidgety, fretful minds
give us staying, trusting peace
to leave our troubles behind.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our worried, wary spirits
give us lulling, calming peace
before we reach our limits.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
Your quiet, quelling peace impart
into our flustered, frantic lives . . .
til it saturates our restless heart!

Here I am Lord ~

Here I am Lord,
take me as I am
work inside of me
as only You can.

Do what you must,
so in You I’ll trust
do what You’ve got to
to keep me close to You.

Here I am Lord,
here is the all of me
my mind, heart and soul
I’m offering up to Thee.

Do that thing You do,
to make me apart of You
do what You need to
to keep me staying true.

Here I am Lord,
coming to You as I am
for You to make me . . . 
just as faithful as a lamb!

Words Grace Laced ~

Words graced laced,
we daily need to hear
for they dispel worry
help eliminate fear.

Words mercy mingled,
we all need to speak
for they give strength
to those who are weak.

Words love lifted,
are pleasant in deed
for they reassure those
who are wanting in need.

Words keen on kindness,
are music to the soul
for they sooth and comfort
when life take its toll.

Word grace laced,
and mercy mingled
are words each day
needed to be kindled!

Feet Like That Of A Deer ~

Oh, to have feet,
like that of a deer
I’d be able to move
without having fear.

I could then scale,
whatever the height
for I would have . . .
God’s power and might.

Oh, to have feet,
like that of a doe
I would not dread
I would just go.

I could then climb,
whatever the distance
for I’d have God’s strength
when met with resistance.

Oh, to have feet,
willing to in God trust
my legs would be . . .
inclined to adjust!
