Sticky Note From God ~09.27.18~


A New Heart ~

A new heart,
is made of flesh
with Jesus’ own
it now does mesh.

It is confident,
its been forgiven
by faith its made
this decision.

A new spirit,
is one at rest
it’s one where grace
has truly blessed.

It’s filled with hope,
joy and elation
it knows Jesus
is its salvation.

A new heart and spirit,
God wants to give
so into our soul . . .
He can come and live!

~~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

“A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put
within you: and I will take
away the stony heart out of
your flesh, and I will give
you an heart of flesh.

Faith and Hope ~

Faith and Hope ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Hope consists of,
many, many things
we need to have faith
in the future it brings.

Hope is continuous,
it doesn’t faint or fade
hope is fearless and bold
it never is afraid.

Hope is confident,
it exudes with power
hope is our assurance
right to the last hour.

Hope is God’s mercy,
His grace and favor
hope is our salvation
in Jesus, our Savior.

Hope is invisible,
it can not be seen
hope is peaceful
blissful and serene.

Faith consists of,
having hope each day
hope is the essence
of things coming our way!

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

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

Touched Anew ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, touch me anew,
refresh my heart
upon my soul
new mercy impart.

Give me a fresh look,
into Your righteousness
let me see Your favor
with a new clearness.

Let me trust you,
with a new confidence
so I may see the light
of Your providence.

Let me see Your grace,
from a new point of view
so my mind can gain
raw insights into You.

Lord, touch me anew,
refresh Your spirit in me
freshly imprint on my heart
why it is, I love Thee!

Because I Believe ~

Because I Believe ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I trust in things,
I cannot see
because I believe
Jesus died for me.

I put my faith,
in the impossible
because I believe
with God, all’s possible.

I stand firm,
in the hope I’ve got
because I believe
my sins Jesus bought.

I have confidence,
in my conviction
because I believe
God’s Word isn’t fiction.

I trust in God,
for what I can’t see
that’s why I believe
Jesus lives in me!

of things hoped for, the

Care Casting ~

Casting In ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My cares I’m casting,
with all sureness
giving them to the Lord
with this assurance.

That all of my concerns,
He will take from me
from my every worry
He will set me free.

With confidence,
I’m placing all my trust
onto the One
who truly loves us.

My every illness,
all my pain and grief
I’m letting Jesus have
so I may have relief.

My cares I am casting,
onto Jesus with sureness
because He has given me
His caring assurance!

A Quiet Heart ~

A Quiet Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A quiet heart is one,
soaked in confidence
for God’s mighty power
has in it dominance.

A quiet heart is one,
having nothing to fear
for it knows God’s promise
is to always be near.

A quiet heart is one,
steeped in eternal peace
for the faith that it holds
brings it constant release.

A quiet heart is one,
standing calmly still
for it knows to seek daily
God’s most perfect will.

A quiet heart is one,
immersed in assurance
for it knows the race . . .
is won on endurance.

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 30:15

“For thus saith the Lord God,
the Holy One of Israel;
In returning and rest shall
ye be saved; in quietness and
in confidence shall be your
strength: and ye would not.”

My Confidence ~ My Hope

hope-is-in-the-lord CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My confidence is in the Lord,
for I know He cares for me
I place my hope in Him
not in the things, I can see.

He protects and shelters me,
in His goodness with His grace
with Him any problem
I’m able to confidently face.

I know I can count on Him,
for wisdom and for some rest
for He knows what I need
has for me only the best.

I am so very happy,
for in the Lord I have peace
His compassion never fails me
my hope in Him shall not cease!

I Need A Faith Lift ~

The testing of Your faith used with permission Doorpost Verses

Lord, I need a faith lift,
perhaps a nip and tuck . . .
an implant of more grace
to get me out of this rut.

I need to liposuction,
the lack of trust out of me
so I can keep my confidence
believing in what I can’t see.

Perhaps some perseverance,
will cure the funk I’m in
an infusion of joy . . .
to bring back my gleeful grin.

I need to give to You,
my worries and my cares
so You can come and do
the restoring and repairs.

Lord, I need a faith lift,
for mine is getting shabby
I’ll need a nip and tuck
before it gets too flabby!

James 1:3

of your faith worketh patience.”

A Lively Hope ~

Beleive used with permission IBible Verses

I’ve got me a lively hope,
a perpetual supply of grace
for I know one glorious day
I’m going to see God face to face.

I’ve got me a transforming hope,
an abundant supply of favor
mercy beyond all cost or measure
in the Lord my eternal Savior.

I’ve got me an active hope,
and I’m full of anticipation
for the day my Lord will come
is my confident expectation.

I’ve got me a breathing hope,
it is permanent and undying
my future blessings are a fact
and on Christ Jesus I am relying.

I got me an incorruptible hope,
an inheritance that’s all mine
nothing that I have earned at all
but one that is of God’s design.

I’ve got me a living hope,
an everlasting supply of love
for I know one glorious day
I’m going to be with my Lord above!

~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:3

“Blessed be the God
and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

which according to his
abundant mercy hath begotten us

again unto a lively
hope by the resurrection of

Jesus Christ from the dead”

Keep on Keeping On ~

Keep On ~ Keeping On ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some days it is so easy,
to run the faithful race
for I know at the finish line
I’m going to see Jesus’ face.

When my eyes are on the goal,
of meeting Jesus at the end
I run with confidence
around every twist and bend.

Then there are the days,
when I am not up to the race
for I’m running in my pride
not in the favor of His grace.

It’s funny how on those days,
every hurdle becomes a trap
and I feel like giving up
before I make another lap.

I know to run the good race,
on Jesus, I need to concentrate
if I’m going to see the insides
of heaven’s pearly gates.

I know to be dedicated,
to keep on ~ keeping on . . .
I’ll need God’s strength
and the Holy Spirit’s brawn!

~~~~~~~~

A Conquering Soul ~

A Conquering Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It takes courage,
a spirit willing to go the length
it takes confidence
letting God supply the strength.

It takes commitment,
a determination to do God’s will
it takes patience
a willingness to wait and be still.

It takes persistence,
a resolve to keep pressing on
it takes diligence
for the faithful race to be won.

It takes focus,
eyes always kept on the goal
it takes Jesus
to have a conquering soul!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:14
King James Version

“I press toward
the mark

for the prize of the high
calling of God

in Christ Jesus.”

A Confident New Year ~

A Confident New Year ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

A New Year is before me,
I know not what it brings
but I have confidence . . .
God’s in control of all things.

I don’t know what is ahead,
the trials of each new day
but I have confidence . . .
Jesus will show me the way.

I may not fully understand,
what the New Year will hold
but I have confidence . . .
He is fitting me to His mold.

I may have incredible gain,
or suffer enormous loss
but I have confidence . . .
it all leads me to the cross.

A New Year is before me,
I know God’s in control
for I have confidence . . .
His love will renew my soul!
