Sticky Note From God ~03.12.19~


Not I, But CHRIST ~

Not I, but Christ,
is why I have grace
to keep to the course
to stay in the race.

For without Jesus,
I’d couldn’t go the distance
and to temptation
I’d have no resistance.

Not I, but Christ,
is why I can cope
to remain steadfast
to maintain the hope.

For, without Jesus,
I’ve not the might
nor the power
to sustain the fight.

Not I, but Christ,
makes all possible
for with Jesus . . .
I am unstoppable!

~~~~~~

John 3:30

“He must increase,
but I must decrease.”

Good Morning Quote ~09.12.18~


This Is My Cross ~

This is my cross,
it is mine to carry
and it is up to me
the old man to bury.

This is my death,
this is my demise
so that a new life
in Christ can arise.

This is my cross,
this is me dying
this is me on myself
no longer relying.

This is me denying,
all my own plans
this is me leaving
all in God’s hands.

This is my cross,
this is my funeral
this is me becoming  . . .
for Jesus usable!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 8:34

“And when he had called the people
unto him with his disciples also,
he said unto them, Whosoever will
come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross, and follow me.”

Proudly Picking Up My Cross ~

shoulder-your-cross CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

 I’m going to pursue Jesus,
I’m going to walk boldly
I’m going to be courageous
pick up my cross proudly.

No matter where He goes,
I’m following where He leads
I’m going to depend on Him
for every one of my needs.

I’m ditching my excuses,
to know God and His ways
I’m going to carry my cross
regardless of what it weighs.

I’m going to surrender,
I’m giving up the self-fight
going to press hard into Him
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

I’m pursuing Jesus,
myself, I’m going to deny
I’m picking up my cross
and carry it, proudly high!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 16:24

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples,
If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself,
and take up his cross, and follow me.”

I’ts A Daily Thing ~

Look to The Cross Creation Swap CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s a daily thing,
this taking up my cross
it’s about eternal gain
not worldly loss.

It’s an hourly thing,
this denying the self
it’s all about Jesus
not about myself.

It’s a moment thing,
this faithful following
it’s about pressing on
not fearful wallowing.

It’s a minute at a time,
this dying to myself thing
but, Oh what joy . . .
each day that it brings!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 9:23
King James Version

“And he said to them all,
If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily,
and follow me.”
