There’s No Guarantee ~

Don’t put off til tomorrow,
what you can do today . . .
for if it does not arrive
you can’t meet God halfway.

You need to go to Him,
while you are still here
and your repentant cries
He will be able to hear.

Don’t put off til tomorrow,
for you have no guarantee
if in this sinful world . . .
you are still going to be.

You need to find God’s mercy,
while you still can
you need to give your life
to the Son of Man.

Don’t put off til tomorrow,
it just may be too late
come to Jesus now . . .
and enter the straight gate!

Proverbs 27:1

Boast not thyself of to morrow;
for thou knowest not what

Matthew 7:13

Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be which go in thereat:

Winning Life’s Crown ~

When you’re discouraged,
feeling down in the dumps
you need to give yourself
in Jesus a joy jump.

For He can bring you out,
of that pit you are in . . .
once you start to focus
on the Goodness of Him.

When you’re disenchanted,
with the world around you
you need to give yourself
a more heavenly view.

For God has a mansion,
filled with numerous rooms
where tears, sorrows and death
no longer lurks or looms.

When you’re feeling sad,
discouraged and down
just think about Jesus . . .
and winning Life’s Crown!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:12

Blessed is the man that
endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the crown of life,
which the Lord hath promised
to them that love him.

Satin Is Alive and Well ~

Satan is alive,
he is living well
for in many hearts
today he dwells.

You can hear him clearly,
in how people talk
for the Gospel of Christ
they love to mock.

Satan is active,
he is keenly aware
of minds he can catch
in his waiting snare.

You can see him,
in what people do
for this world’s god
they eagerly pursue.

Satin is alive,
right here on this planet
he is living well . . .
causing eternal havoc!

12 Corinthians 4:4

In whom the god of this world

What I Really Mean ~

When I say I’m born again,
I mean that God has changed me
from the inside out . . .
in ways you might not see.

When I tell you I’ve repented,
I mean to God I have turned back
from my old sinful ways . . .
that kept me off the narrow track.

When I speak to you of God’s mercy,
I’m saying it’s something I don’t deserve
it’s only out of His abundant goodness
that for me He had some on reserve.

When I talk about my faith in Jesus,
I’m telling you it’s all about His grace
for without the Holy Spirit’s power
I would have no strength for this race.

When I say I am a new creature,
what to you I am really saying
Jesus knew that the old one was . . .
worth Him dying for and saving!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.

Forget The Past ~

There are many things,
we need to forget . . .
lest our soul’s will become
besieged by regret.

We need to wash our sins,
in the blood of grace
we need after former things
no longer pursue or chase.

We need to put the past,
behind us once and for all
we need on our failures
to cease on them to recall.

We need to banish our pride,
into the wilderness
we need to claim in Jesus
His love and forgiveness.

There are many things,
God has forgotten about us
now in His mercy . . .
we need to learn to trust!

For I will be merciful
to their unrighteousness,
and their sins and their

My Future Home ~

I like interactions,
about my future life
not about this one . . .
full of daily strife.

For up in heaven,
is where I long to be
so that I can at last
Jesus finally see.

I like to converse,
about life eternal
not about this one
full of upheaval.

For I look forward,
to that glorious day
when in the clouds
Jesus takes me away.

I like discussions,
about my future home
for it’s where my mind . . .
often drifts and roams!

The Mystery Of God’s Love ~

Lord, I cannot illustrate,
the mystery of Your love
for it rises higher
then the moon above.

I cannot measure it,
not the distance or the length
I cannot grasp it
not its power or its strength.

I cannot describe it,
not how near or how far
I cannot spell out it
not even with all the stars.

I cannot calculate it,
not the width or the depth
I cannot fathom it
not its expanse or its breadth.

I cannot imagine it,
beyond what my eyes see
and yet I am amazed
to infinity You love me.

Lord, I cannot illustrate,
this mystery from above
yet I am determined . . .
it is an everlasting love!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 3:17-19

That Christ may dwell in
your hearts by faith; that ye,
being rooted and grounded in love,

May be able to comprehend with
all saints what is the breadth,
and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all
the fulness of God.

It Is You Lord ~

Lord, it is You who keeps,
my lamp burning . . .
it is for Your guidance
my heart stays yearning.

It is You who gives,
me hope and trust
it is in Your Word
my soul stays trussed.

Lord, it is You who keeps,
my faith steady
it is for Your return
my mind stays ready.

It is Your eternal love,
I keep my eyes on
it is Your Way and Life
to which I am drawn.

Lord, It is You who keeps,
my life full of Light
it is for You I will win
the good and faithful fight!

Will Your Faith Remain ~

Will your faith remain,
or will it be shaken
will it be asleep
or in Jesus awaken?

Will your trust stay,
on the vine abiding
or will it be found
on it to be dying?

Will your hope be,
eternal and everlasting
or will it be without
truth and understanding?

Will your belief hold,
or will it be moved
will the Word of God
still need to be proved?

Will your faith remain,
or will it be upended
will it be on Jesus . . .
your salvation is depended?

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:26-27

Whose voice then shook the earth:
but now he hath promised, saying,
Yet once more I shake not the
earth only, but also heaven.

And this word, Yet once more, signifieth
the removing of those things that are
shaken, as of things that are made,
that those things which cannot be
shaken may remain.

Sticky Note From God ~06.13.21~

John 1:5


Build A Bridge of Hope ~

Build a bridge of truth and hope,
repair the broken span . . .
restore and renew someone’s life
to the Son of Man.

Build the bridge with mercy,
help them to see God’s will
bring back a wandering soul
to the One who longs to heal.

Build the bridge with grace,
let them see what love is about
show them the way to their Savior
guide them through their doubt.

Build the bridge with glee and joy,
let them see your delight
lead them through the darkness
into His eternal light.

Build a bridge of salvation,
to the Cross that sets them free
tell them why Jesus had to die
for them that day at Calvary!

~~~~~~~~

John 3:16-17

“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.

For God sent not
his Son into the world

to condemn the world;
but that the world
through him might be saved.”

Staying Loyal ~

I am standing fast,
staying to Jesus loyal
right to the finish line
I will remain hopeful.

Though all around me,
people are falling away
from my faith in Him
I’ll not be led astray.

I am holding fast,
staying to Jesus faithful
up to my dying breath
I will remain trustful.

Though the world is,
more evil every day
I’ll stay to the course
of the Life, Truth and Way.

I am standing firm,
I will not be shameful
for my salvation . . .
I will remain grateful!

A Purified Heart ~

A purified heart,
is a washed one
forgiven by God
cleansed by His Son.

It’s a penitent heart,
one once crimson

with grace it glistens.

A purified heart,
is one renewed within
obedient to living
a life without sin.

It’s a anointed heart,
filled with the Spirit
one where pasts lusts

A purified heart,

The Height Of God’s Love ~

Have you considered,
God’s love and it’s height
have you been drawn . . .
to Jesus the true Light?

Do you know His love,
and its immensity
do you know Jesus died
for you unselfishly?

Do you comprehend,
God’s love unbiased
do you realize . . .
it is love at its highest?

Have you ever thought,
how could He ever love me
would you consider letting Him
from sin to set you free?

Can’t you feel the height,
the width, length and breadth
of God’s eternal love for you . . .
upon Jesus’ dying breath?

The Word Of Life ~

The Word of Life,
has been with us
from the beginning
this we can trust.

Some with their eyes,
espied Him on their own
while others Himself
have not seen or known.

The World of Life,
walked among some
with the Good News
He was God’s only Son.

Some with their hands,
reached out and touched
while others His hem
never felt or brushed.

The Word of Life,
was and is not seen
but, life eternal . . .
is for all to glean!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:1-2

That which was from the beginning,
which we have heard, which we have
seen with our eyes, which we have
looked upon, and our hands
have handled, of the Word of life;

(For the life was manifested,
and we have seen it, and bear witness,
and shew unto you that eternal life,
which was with the Father, and
was manifested unto us;)

Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for,

False Teachers ~

False teachers,
today can be heard
feeding heresies
to their sleepy herd.

Denying to the masses,
the need for repentance
making all feel safe
with their acceptance.

False teachers,
bringing destruction
misleading the sheep
with their deception.

Rejecting the Lord’s call,
to go and sin no more
allowing tolerance
to enter the True Door.

False teachers,
preaching every Sunday
no longer advocating . . .
just how narrow is the Way!

~~~~~~~

2 Peter 2:1-2

But there were false prophets
also among the people, even
as there shall be false teachers
among you, who privily shall
bring in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord that
bought them, and bring upon
themselves swift destruction.

And many shall follow their
pernicious ways; by reason
of whom the way of truth
shall be evil spoken of.

The Length Of God’s Love ~

Have you considered,
God’s love and its length
have you thought about
the power of its strength?

Do you know it stretches,
from here to eternity
do you believe it includes
all of humanity?

Do you comprehend,
God’s love is measureless
do you understand
His mercy is limitless?

Do you perceive God had,
from the beginning a plan
can you conclude Jesus
came to fill the empty span?

Can you embrace His love,
and its infinite distance . . .
have you contemplated
the truth of its existence?

Have you considered,
loving God too
just because He first . . .
showed His love for you?

For God so loved the world,

so I may discover
Your mercy is without measure.

Lord may I remain,

Versed in Your love and grace,

to work out my salvation . . .
with a trembling willingness!

it keeps me in God trusting

My hope I’m not ashamed of,

my hope cannot be moved
by what other people say.

It keeps me focused,

the arena is hyper-political

it’s a choice of eternal life . . .
or one filled with hell’s fire!

It’s not about how much,
faith you possess . . .
it’s about in Whom you believe

It’s about the True Foundation,

it’s about putting your trust

It’s not about the evidence,
but a mind that is sound
it’s about being firmly anchored
in the faith that you found.

It’s not about what can be seen,
it’s about hope for the future
it’s about knowing your faith
the Word of God will nurture.

It’s not about how much,
or little faith in your possession
it’s about to the world ways . . .
not making a single concession!

Rubbish or Not ~

To some the Word of God,
is nothing but rubbish
they think it is ludicrous
and consider it foolish.

But we who have ears,
think it is full of power

To some Jesus was a man,
but, just a carpenter
they don’t see the cross
as a harbinger.

But, we who have eyes,
see the cross as a signal
for we know in His death
we now have life eternal.

To some the Word of God,
is nothing but useless tripe . . .
but, we who have ears and eyes
know we’re healed by each stripe!

crucify, crucify Him . . .

Where Faith and Love Dwells ~

Sometimes I wander through,
 the valleys of my soul . . .
lingering near the streams of life
when I felt well and whole.

I ponder the times Jesus filled in,
the empty and void space
where His love for me flowed
like a river full of endless grace.

As I stroll along the rugged clefts,
I can see the hard times too
as I roam all around them
His mercy for me shines through.

I come across the mountains,
that I had to hike up to . . .
some of them I never thought
the hard climb I could ever do.

But I remember seeing Jesus,
standing upon the crest
calling down to me
“Come, I’ll give you rest.”

Sometimes I like to wander,
through life’s hills and dells
and go deep into my soul . . .
where faith and love dwells!

Ephesians 3:17

That Christ may dwell
in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted
and grounded in love,

If Today You Would Hear ~

Today if you would hear,
if your ears you’d open
you will hear the truth
be told and spoken.

For God will speak,
right to your heart
closing the chasm
keeping you apart.

Today if you would listen,
you’d will be able to hear
Jesus calling you
to come close and near.

For He wants you to know,
for your sin’s He died
how He is waiting for you
with arms stretched out wide.

Today if you would hear,
what God has to say . . .
you will discover the Truth
to the new Life and Way!

John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again
unto them, saying, I am
the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall
not walk in darkness, but
shall have the light of life.

If Not For Jesus ~

If it were not for Jesus,
I would not have made it
if it were not for Him . . .
giving me a new spirit.

But, once He came along,
He put flesh into my heart
and now to the world
I am no longer a part.

If it were not for Jesus,
I would have turned back
if it were not for His Word
to help keep me on track.

But, He shines His Light,
on the Truth and Way
so from the narrow path
I’ll not wander or stray.

If it were not for Jesus,
I would have surely given in . . .
to the pressures of the world
to go out again and sin!

~~~~~~~~

John 8: 1011

When Jesus had lifted
up himself, and saw none
but the woman, he said
unto her, Woman, where
are those thine accusers?
hath no man condemned thee?

She said, No man, Lord.
And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more.
