Sticky Note to God ~05.02.18


The Love of The World ~

The love of the world,
is but foolishness . . .
all it has to offer
is truly meaningless.

It’s full of vanities,
prideful, greedy lust
one day all it offers
will tarnish and rust.

The love of the world,
is empty, grim and grave
once you desire of it
to it you’ll be a slave.

It teaming with sin,
too godless to mention
it’s where satan reigns
with all his henchman.

The love of the word,
is foolishness for sure
and the Light of Jesus . . .
is it’s only saving cure!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

“Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life,
is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.”

Take Care ~

Take care my friend,
as you go about your day
be careful who you meet
as you go along your way.

For, there’s a lot of evil,
waiting for you out there
so make sure before you go
to use extreme care.

Take care my friend,
do not be deceived
lest your heart be harden
to what you believe.

For, the world will test you,
with it wickedness
and you must not show it
one once of willingness.

Take care my friend,
lest from God you fall away
for satan would just love . . .
to see you lead astray!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 3:12-13

“Take heed, brethren,
lest there be in any
of you an evil heart
of unbelief, in departing
from the living God.

But exhort one another daily,
while it is called To day;
lest any of you be hardened
through the deceitfulness of sin.”

Walking With the Godless ~

When you walk,
from God’s will away
you’ll be on the road
to spiritual decay.

For, satan will come,
with his distorted views
so your mind he can
confound and confuse.

When you walk,
with the godless
your spiritual life
will become a mess.

For, the ungodly,
give worldly advice
to follow it only leads
to spiritual demise.

When you walk,
with the sinful
you better become
for your soul fearful.

For surely to walk,
with the ungodly
your spiritual life . . .
we become sloppy!

~~~~~

Psalm 1:1

“Blessed is the man that walketh
not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

Walking in The Light ~

Walking in the Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When we walk in the light,
we will recognize sin
we will see the darkness
that still creeps within.

We will see the rebellion,
of our old wicked ways
we will smell the stench
of our own spiritual decay.

When we walk in the light,
we will see all the wrong
we will know to this world
we no longer belong.

We will see our greediness,
our lusts for former things
we’ll know not to fall again
into the traps they bring.

When we walk in the light,
from temptation we will flee
for the light shines brighter
then the darkness we see!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7

“But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood of
Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.”

King James Version

Things ~

Don't lose sight used with permission IBible Verses

Things, we all possess them,
most of them have a hold on us
demanding all of our attention
oh, how over them we love to fuss.

Things, cluttering up our lives,
stuffed away in crammed drawers
lying out in the open spaces
locked away behind closed doors.

Things, keeping us so very busy,
taking us here and there
requiring all our leisure moments
leaving no time for God to spare.

Things, the need for this and that,
longing after the newest toy
always needing to upgrade
oh, how they give us so much joy.

Things, we gotta have them all,
tucking them deep inside our heart
playing with them in our minds
keeping us from God far apart.

Things, we all have lots of them,
we need them for our survival
oh, how we worship and adore them
but to God ~ they’re all just an idol!

~~~~~~~

1 John 5:21
King James Version

“Little children, keep yourselves from
idols. Amen.”

Things, Things, Things ~

Things, things, things . . .
they are everywhere
their causing me grief
misery and despair.

Things, taking up my time,
running my life too
things that are keeping me
from the “thing” I should do.

Things, cluttering up my mind,
taking over my thoughts
things people give me
things that I have bought.

Things, taking me from God,
wasting instead time with them
things ruining my relationship
idols God would condemn.

Things, things, things,
who needs them anymore
getting rid of all my  things
and then God I’ll not ignore!

Colossians 3:2
King James Version

“Set your affection on things above,
not on things on the earth.”

Carnal Minds ~

Thoughts by Nick Schmidt free photo #15612

Soft Christians, ever so soft,
in the Bible I read . . .
they are of a carnal mind
in thought and deed.

They don’t make waves,
feathers they won’t ruffle
it’s all about God’s love
and His wrath they muffle.

They walk into church,
call it the narrow way
then the rest of the week
from the truth they stray.

Their path isn’t straight,
they just think it is . . .
but the sober reality
it is so far from His.

They don’t feed upon,
the Word and the law
in fact the carnal man
doesn’t see his own flaw.

They think if they tithe,
give their ten-percent
they will receive gifts
that are heaven-sent.

Worldly and fleshy,
they go with the flow
and the truth in the Bible
they prefer not to know.

So, they edit it out,
make up new meanings
definitions that take from sin
the need for redeeming.

Carnal Christians,
misplaced and lost . . .
all because they’ve become
to sin, yielding and soft!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:6-8
King James Version 

“For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:
for it is not subject to the law of God,
neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh
cannot please God.”
