Of Good Courage Be ~

Be of good courage,
be glad exceedingly
for God wants to give you
His peace unceasingly.

He wants you to have,
a faith mightily strong
so you can make hope
your eternal song.

Of good courage be,
let your mind be at rest
God knows the cares
with today that you wrest.

He wants you to give Him,
all that is of concern
for His yoke is easy
just as is His burden.

Be of good courage,
rejoice and be joyful
for the One you trust
is loving and faithful

~~~~~~

Psalms 31:24

Be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
your heart, all ye that
hope in the Lord.

Things Concerning Me ~

There are many things,
that concern me . . .
including things I can
and those I can’t see.

But, in God’s hands,
I leave them all to be
for I know He is working
something good in me.

There are a lot of things,
on my mind weighing . . .
and they get heavier
when I am not praying.

So for all and everything,
that to me is burdensome
I pray so that I may
all these things overcome.

There are many things,
I wish didn’t have to be
but, I know that God is . . .
perfecting faith in me!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 138.8

The Lord will perfect that which
concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord,
endureth for ever: forsake not the
works of thine own hands.

It’s No Wonder ~

Life has many troubles,
worries and cares
it’s no wonder we need . . .
Jesus our burdens to bear.

With all the uncertainty,
each day that we face
it’s no wonder we need . . .
more and more of His grace.

Life is full of problems,
highs and lows and downs
it’s no wonder we need . . .
Jesus to keep our heart’s sound.

With all the constant chaos,
the turmoil and the stress
it’s no wonder we need . . .
Jesus ours souls to bless.

Life is but a vapor,
in the big scheme of things
it’s no wonder we need . . .
Jesus and the peace He brings!

John 14:1

Let not your heart

Peace Surpassing ~

May you have the peace,
surpassing understanding
may you be at perfect rest
worries notwithstanding.

May you feel the blush,
of God’s soothing calm
may your soul soak it in
like the healing of a balm.

May you retain the peace,
guarding your heart and mind
may you through Jesus
the bliss of tranquility find.

May you sense the purge,
of all things troubling
may you feel the vibrant rush
of hope inside bubbling.

May you have the peace,
comprehension surpassing . . .
may for everything you pray
with pleas of thanksgiving!

~~~~~~~~

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.

All for Joy ~

Count it all for joy,
each trial you go through
give it not a second thought
then watch what God will do.

Count it all for joy,
when tested for your belief
patience will be your reward
and His peace your relief.

Count it all for joy,
as He performs His work in you
let His perfection complete
and make you someone new.

Count it all for joy,
lest you be tossed about
seek by faith all your needs
and in God never doubt.

Count it all for joy,
for His wisdom is yours to gain
ask believing without fear
and in your life He will reign.

Count it all for joy,
no matter your despair
let His love fill you up . . .
and your life He’ll repair!

~~~~~~

James 1:2-3

“My brethren, count it all joy
when ye fall
into divers temptations;

Knowing this,
that the trying of your faith

 worketh patience.”

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.”

Troubles Abounding ~

In this fallen world . . .
there’ll be troubles abounding
worries and cares
conceptually confounding.

But, Jesus said we’re not,
to fret or to despair
but to hand over to Him
our every single care.

Each day there’s enough,
troubles of its own
packed full of anxiety
from the things unknown.

But, Jesus insisted,
we are not to dread
nor are we to panic
but to trust Him instead.

In this fallen world,
we’ll have plenty of distress
but, Jesus makes it clear
over them we needn’t obsess!

~~~~~~~

John 16:33

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.”

Jesus Will Console You ~

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

Know Jesus will bring you,
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.

Know Jesus will bring you,
great comfort and good cheer
as He consoles you through
all you’ve come to fear.

When heavy and hefty,
are your problems and cares
know Jesus consolation
will lift you from your despair!

~~~~~~~~

“In the multitude of my thoughts
within me thy comforts delight my soul.”

Leap of Faith ~

Whenever you hit,
that eventual wall
remember on Jesus
you can always call.

He will help get you,
up and over it
with the strength
of the Holy Spirit.

Whenever you hit,
that awaiting obstacle
don’t forget with Jesus
nothing is impossible.

He will help you to take,
faith’s boundless leap
and on you His power
He will endlessly heap.

Whenever you hit,
that unexpected barricade
remember with Jesus
you need not be dismayed!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:29

“For by thee I have run
through a troop;
and by my God have
I leaped over a wall.”

Your Wall Will Fall ~

Your wall will come down,
it too can fall
if on God’s power
you willingly call.

Your wall will crumble,
it too can come apart
it you trust God
with all your soul and heart.

Your wall will topple,
it too can collapse
if you will give God
your circumstance.

Your wall will weaken,
it too can flatten out
if you give to God
all your fear and doubt.

Your wall will fall,
it too will be demolished
if you believe God . . .
anything can be accomplished!

~~~~~~~~

Joshua 6:20

“So the people shouted when
the priests blew with the trumpets:
and it came to pass, when the people
heard the sound of the trumpet,
and the people shouted with a great shout,
that the wall fell down flat,
so that the people went up into the city,
every man straight before him,
and they took the city.”

It’s No Snap ~

It isn’t easy,
this being strong
it’s really hard
when all’s going wrong.

It isn’t a snap,
this having courage
it’s difficult
not getting discouraged.

It isn’t comfortable,
this waiting and waiting
it’s laborious
keeping from fainting.

It isn’t painless,
this being perfectly still
it’s grueling
finding out God’s will.

But those who take heart,
in God’s timing . . .
on eagle’s wings
will soon be find soaring!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:14

“Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait,
I say, on the Lord.”

Get God Involved ~

So often we have problems,
we try to fix alone . . .
when what we should do
is take them to the throne.

We know that in God,
we need to place our trust
but when troubles come
this doesn’t resonate in us.

So we think we’ve the power,
our worries we can overcome
and doing things ourselves
becomes the rule of thumb.

We know Jesus said,
our burden’s He would bear
and instead of letting go
we hold on to our care.

We set out our anchor,
in the sea of faithlessness
making for ourselves
an even bigger mess.

So often we have problems,
alone we try to resolve . . .
when we should be asking
for God to get involved!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:22

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

Good Morning Quote ~08.04.18~


So Many Battles ~

So many battles,
too many fights
so many who need
God ‘s powerful might.

So many struggles,
too many woes
so many who need
God’s peaceful repose.

So many troubles,
too many ills
so many who need
God to show His will.

So many worries,
too many despairs
so many who need
God’s mercy repairs.

So many battles,
too many fights
so many who need
Jesus’ saving light!

~~~~~~~

“For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.”

Look Up To God ~

Early in the morning,
before your arise . . .
make sure to your worries
you keep God apprised.

Let Him know before,
you get your day started
why it is that you feel
fearful and fainthearted.

Early in the morning,
as the sun comes up
before you pour coffee
into your mug or cup.

Let God know how much,
you need Him to be with you
how impossible it’d be
without Him to make it through.

Early in the morning
before out of bed you climb
look up to God and spend . . .
with Him some quality time!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

Jesus Is Always There ~

Everyone has anxiety,
all have fraying nerves
everyone is fidgety
when thrown, a life curve.

Everyone needs to hear,
someone will always care
all need to know Jesus . . .
their every burden, will bear.

Everyone is worried,
all are edgy and jittery
everyone has troubles
hardships and misery.

Everyone needs to be told,
about God’s saving grace
all need in their hearts
His peace to embrace.

Everyone is restless,
all have turmoil and strife
everyone is overwhelmed
by the sudden storms of life.

Everyone needs a Friend,
someone with whom to share
all need to know Jesus  . . .
is the One, who’s always there!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety in a man’s heart
weighs him down,
but a good word
makes him glad.

Little Blessings ~

Lord, encourage today,
those who are depressed
let them see just how much
they are truly blessed.

Let them see the little things,
every day that You do
so they may keep their eyes
focused daily in on You.

Lord, encourage today,
those who cannot see
the love and the grace
sent each day from Thee.

Let them see the hope,
in each little blessing
so they may be persuaded
into You to keep pressing.

Lord, encourage today,
those who are downcast
may they keep their minds . . .
and hearts in You steadfast!
