Hear My Son ~

This is My Beloved Son,
hear what He has to say
for He is the only Life . . .
to the Truth and the Way.

Open up your ears,
so that you may hear
how He can bring you
eternal joy and cheer.

Listen with your heart,
envision in your mind
how only through Him
true peace will you find.

Take heed to His calling,
to witness for yourself
how your every sin
He took upon Himself.

This is My Beloved Son,
He’s speaking to you today
listen closely to Him . . .
for He’s to Me the only Way!

And there came a voice
out of the cloud, saying,
This is my beloved Son:
hear him.

I am the way,

no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me.

Depressing Times ~

Depressing times,
takes a lot of hope
a true faith in God
to be able to cope.

For without faith,
hope there can’t be
to keep us believing
in what we can’t see.

Discouraging seasons,
takes a lot of trust
it takes the believer
inside all of us.

For without trust,
there can’t be belief
for the hope of having
everlasting relief.

Time’s depressing,
season’s discouraging
takes faith, trust and hope
constantly nourishing!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:12

Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation;
continuing instant in prayer;

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;
and lean not unto
thine own understanding.

God’s Cup Is Brimming ~

God’s cup is brimming,
with His mercies and grace . .
He desires nothing more
than to see us finish the race.

So He gives us strength,
whenever ours is weak
keeping us humble
so we may remain meek.

He renews our faith,
so like eagles we’ll soar
in storms He helps us
to rise over the roar.

His anger is slow,
as we stumble along
His love is steadfast
to keep our trust strong.

He forgives and forgets,
our sins and our shame
He provides salvation
to all who call on His name.

God’s cup is brimming,
with compassion and favor
so He sent His own Son . . .
to be our personal Savior!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassion’s fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

If Only I Could ~

If only I could collect,
in the world all the hate
I’d show it the way . . .
to the narrow gate.

I would let it know,
how to let its anger go
so God’s love instead
could begin to flow.

If only I could glean,
all the world’s wickedness
I’d show it the way
to eternal happiness.

I would let it know,
how evil is never good
and how it is satan’s
favorite falsehood.

If only I could gather up,
all the hate and evilness
I would show it the way . . .
to eternal peacefulness!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 10:12

Hatred stirreth up strifes:
but love covereth all sins.

Romans 1:29-32

Being filled with all unrighteousness,
fornication, wickedness, covetousness,
maliciousness; full of envy, murder,
debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful,
proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,

Without understanding, covenantbreakers,
without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God,
that they which commit such things
are worthy of death, not only do the same,
but have pleasure in them that do them.

Born Of God ~

Born of God,
a sinner of the past
holding onto . . .
my faith steadfast.

The evil one,
cannot touch me
under his power
no longer willing to be.

Now I am of God,
I have His protection
for He gives to me
truth and direction.

The world’s no longer,
a place I call home
for it’s where man’s
wickedness roams.

A child of God,
from sinning set free
now that Jesus . . .
lives inside of me!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:18-20

We know that whosoever
is born of God sinneth not;
but he that is begotten of
God keepeth himself,
and that wicked one
toucheth him not.

And we know that we are
of God, and the whole world
lieth in wickedness.

And we know that the Son of God
is come, and hath given us an
understanding, that we may know
him that is true, and we are in him
that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.
This is the true God, and eternal life.

Tears Fall From Up In Heaven ~

Tears fill up their ducts,
with deep sorrow they fall from
for His eyes see the sadness . . .
of the days still yet to come.

They well within their rims,
till they begin to overflow
for His eyes see the grief . . .
of what only He could know.

They trickle down His cheeks,
as they slowly start to run
for His eyes see the world . . .
without the love of His Son.

They flood from their brims,
and puddle onto the floor
for His eyes see the day . . .
this world will be no more.

Tears fall from up in heaven,
like a thunderous mighty rain
so many still live their lives . . .
in futileness and in vain.

God cries for the unsaved,
the lost, the unforgiven . . .
His tears reflect those who reject
what His Son has so freely given!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 78:40

How oft did they provoke him
in the wilderness,
and grieve him in the desert!

Luke 19:41

“And when He was come near,
He beheld the city, and wept over it.”

John 3.16

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

Sticky Note From God ~06.09.22~

Romans 6:23


Into This Sinner’s Soul ~

God took my broken life,
healed and made it whole
empty His love and mercy
right into this sinner’s soul.

He rescued me from this world,
the direction I was headed in
helped me to grasp to its ways
only lead to death and sin.

He gave me a heart of flesh,
removed the stony one
showed me the way to Him
was only through His Son.

He gave me ears to hear,
the eyes I needed to see
so I’d know how much . .
He was in love with me.

God took this sinner’s soul,
once doomed and hopeless
saving me from going . . .
into the pit ~ bottomless!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 66:16

Come and hear, all ye that fear God,
and I will declare what he hath done
for my soul.

Revelation 9:1

And the fifth angel sounded,
and I saw a star fall from heaven
unto the earth: and to him was
given the key of the bottomless pit . . .

Beam Me Up Lord ~

Beam me up Lord,
I am so ready to leave
there’s nothing here
onto which I cleave.

I’m willing to give up,
everything I own
so I may go with You . . .
to my eternal home.

I’m happy to vacate,
on earth my little space
so I can be with You
in a more peaceful place.

Take me to the room,
You’ve prepared for me
so with You in heaven . . .
I may forever be.

Beam me up Lord,
I’m so ready to depart
for, I no longer want . . .
in this world to be a part!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

For the Lord himself shall descend
from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel,
and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive
and remain shall be caught
up together with them
in the clouds, to meet the Lord
in the air: and so shall
we ever be with the Lord.

A Love Letter From God ~

Today I received,
from God a love letter
I opened up my Bible
here is what I read . . .

I am your Creator,
I formed and molded you
before you were born . . .
I knitted you together too.

I’m the remedy to your needs,
I am your soothing balm
I’m the peace in your storm
I am that voice in the calm.

I’m all the grace you need,
in Me there’s eternal life
I came so that I could bear
the burden of your strife.

I am your staff of comfort,
I will shield and protect you
through life’s complexities
together we’ll get through.

I am the anchor of your soul,
a safe place to run and hide
for I will never forsake you . . .
I’ll always be at your side.

I’m the lamp unto your way,
with my Word I will guide
I am the One who you feel
stirring up deep inside.

I am your Creator,
I knew you from the start
that is why I gave to you . . .
for Me a loving heart!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:16

And we have known and
believed the love that God
hath to us. God is love; and
he that dwelleth in love
dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Jesus Came To Seek ~

Jesus came to seek,
to look, to find
the lost souls
of all of mankind.

He came to call,
all to repentance
took upon Himself
their penitence.

Jesus came to save,
all who were lost
to bring them to God
no matter the cost.

He sought to find,
hearts willing
to be filled with
His indwelling.

Jesus came to seek,
He looked, He sought
all of mankind . . .
who sought Him not!

Predestined to go,

Song and laughter,

Psalm 37:11


A Call For Praise ~

A time to worship,
a call for praise
a time a new song
to God to raise.

For all He’s done,
for all He’s doing
a time to rejoice
with joyful singing.

A time for music,
a call for melody
a time to display
jubilant revelry.

For all Jesus did,
for all He will do
a time to relish
all things made new.

A time for song.
a call to sing . . .
upon the chords
of our heart’s stings!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 33:1-4

Rejoice in the Lord,
O ye righteous:
for praise is comely
for the upright.

Praise the Lord with harp:
sing unto him with the
psaltery and an instrument
of ten strings.

Sing unto him a new song;
play skilfully with a loud noise.

For the word of the Lord is right;
and all his works are done in truth.

Weeds ~

Life is full of weeds,
we need to pluck
before in our hearts
they become stuck.

For if we don’t uproot,
their suffocating base
we won’t be able to run
or win the faithful race.

Weeds are full of life,
needing to be obliterated
lest our faith in God
will become manipulated.

For if we do not rid,
their strangling hold on us
satan will pulverize
all our hope and trust.

Life is full of weeds,
weeds are full of life . . .
we must eradicate them
or face eternal strife!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 13:26-30

But when the blade was sprung up,
and brought forth fruit, then appeared
the tares also . . . .

Matthew 13:38-39

The field is the world;
the good seed are the
children of the kingdom;
but the tares are the
children of the wicked one;

The enemy that sowed them
is the devil; the harvest
is the end of the world;
and the reapers are the angel

The Unreachable ~

Today more than ever,
we need ears teachable
ones that are opened
and to God reachable.

We need hearts to believe,
all things are possible
so they can to do for God
that which is impossible.

Today more than ever,
we need eyes insightful
ones who can be for God
astute and foresightful.

We need minds that know,
all about the end times
so they can be for God
a watchman of the signs.

Today, more then ever,
we need hearts teachable
minds that are insightful
to reach the unreachable!

Lord, tell us You love us,
to the earth’s end
remind us that You are

Relay to us how Your love,
is deeper than the sea
remind us to stay grounded
until with You we be.

Convey to us that Your love,
spans the entire universe
remind us that Your power
in our lives You’ll disperse.

Express to us why Your love,
is higher than the sky
remind us to remain rooted
until the day we die.

Lord, tell us You love us,
until we are together . . .
remind that we will be
one day with You forever!

The Missing Piece ~

He repairs hearts,
fills in the holes
heals the spirit
restores the soul.

His love reaches,
the deep recesses
where pain hides
and sin depresses.

He gives wholeness,
to the fraught mind
surpassing anything
we could ever find.

To those in need,
grace He freely gives
for only He knows . . .
how to truly forgive.

He fills in the hole,
He’s the missing piece
only Jesus can bring
true rest and peace!

~~~~~~

Psalm 147:3

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

I’ve Been Redeemed ~

I have been redeemed
not with silver or gold
but with a lively hope
taking on my heart a hold.

I had nothing to give,
only my faith in His grace
for Jesus took upon Himself
the penalty in my place.

I have been redeemed,
no longer am I culpable
all because Jesus saw . . .
me as being lovable.

It’s a one time payment,
Jesus made for me
for only by His blood
was I able to be set free.

I have been redeemed,
Jesus my sins bought
for the lamb of God . . .
willingly took my spot!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:18-19

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were
not redeemed with corruptible things,
as silver and gold, from your vain
conversation received by tradition
from your fathers;

But with the precious blood of Christ,
as of a lamb without blemish
and without spot:

Today is the day,
to make your life count

For life is fleeting,
the hours passing away
and now’s the time to seek
the Truth, Life and Way.

Generation have gone by,
soon yours will too
so give it no future thought
what with it you will do.

Rather give your life now,
to Jesus and be saved
and He will resurrect you
right out of the grave.

Life is but a vapor
soon it will fade away
so give your heart to Jesus
right here, right now today!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:14

Whereas ye know not what
shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapour,

Ecclesiastes 3:11


Good Morning Quote ~03.22.22~


Why I am Hopeful ~

When others ask,
about the hope inside me
I tell them it’s from . . .
believing in what I can’t see.

They look at me puzzled,
til to them I explain . . .
how Jesus on my soul
left an invisible bloodstain.

I confess how He became,
my Lord and Savior
how His love for me is full
of mercy, grace and favor.

I tell them from my sins,
once I turned and repented
how Jesus’ very own Spirit
to me was presented.

And now He guides me,
each and every day
helping me to remain
on the narrow way.

My hope is set on,
the day in heaven I will be
and that is why I say . . .
I believe in what I can’t see!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 3:15

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:

We all need to have,

we need to keep heaven
constantly in our view.

We all need to have,
courage and boldness . . .
we Jesus need to guide us
on life’s eternal voyage!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

For which cause we faint not;
but though our outward man perish,
yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

For our light affliction, which is but for
a moment, worketh for us a far more
exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

While we look not at the things which
are seen, but at the things which are
not seen: for the things which are seen
are temporal; but the things which
are not seen are eternal.

The Walk Of The Wise ~

Those that are wise,
travel together
God’s wisdom and trust
they reap and gather.

For they know to walk,
on the righteous path
will lead them away
from knowing God’s wrath.

Those that are wise,
journey together
Jesus’ grace and hope
they consume and devour.

For they know to believe,
in things they can’t see
will take all their faith
until with Him they be.

Those that are wise,
keep on the right track
for they know wisdom . . .
they will never lack!

Lord as I reflect upon,
the love You have for me
I can’t help but to think . . .

For I know that I am,

and I know I don’t deserve
Your mercy and kindness.

Lord, as I meditate upon,
the nature of Your Spirit
I can’t help but to see
Your grace I didn’t merit.

For I know that I am,
a first-class offender
tis why my heart and soul
to You I did surrender.

Lord, I know I’m a sinner,
deserving not of forgiveness
and I’m forever grateful . . .
You love me regardless!

He hath not dealt with us
