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.

Strength Everlasting ~

Everlasting strength,
the Lord gives to us
when it is in Him . . .
that we put our trust.

Strength to be courageous,
to be bold and dauntless
strength that will make us
in all things fearless.

Strength that never gives up,
nor never gives in
to the demands of evil
or the temptation of sin.

Strength for the unlikely,
the hard and impossible
strength to do the things
once unimaginable.

Strength everlasting,
is given to those who trust
a promise from the Lord . . .
to everyone of us!

Isaiah 26:4

Trust ye in the Lord for ever:
for in the Lord Jehovah is
everlasting strength:

Wickedness ~

Wickedness,
here and higher places
evilness
right before our faces.

Darkness,
spreading all around
treachery
trying to keep us down.

Liars,
standing in front of us
deceivers
mandating us to trust.

Powers,
destroying democracy
rulers
full of hypocrisy.

Wickedness and evil,
requiring us to fight
with the Truth found . . .
in the Armor of Light!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12-13

For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the
whole armour of God, that ye
may be able to withstand in
the evil day, and having done
all, to stand.

Romans 13:12

The night is far spent,
the day is at hand: let us
therefore cast off the
works of darkness,
and let us put on the
armour of light.

Hello Jesus ~

Hello Jesus I need to talk,
I need an ear to hear
how the root of evil
in today’s world I fear.

I need to know from You,
all is in Your control
I need to have Your peace
resting here in my soul.

Hello Jesus I need to ask,
how in this world I’m to cope
when there are so many
who haven’t a drop of hope.

I need to understand,
just what it will take
to help save those
from their eternal fate.

Hello Jesus I need to talk,
I need You to tell me
why in today’s world
so much evil I now see!

~~~~~~~~

John 16:33

These things I have spoken
unto you, that in me ye might
have peace. In the world ye
shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

Only On God’s Might ~

I pray for the power,
of God’s holy might . . .
in all of the battles
I may have to fight.

On my own strength,
I don’t try or endeavor
for I know that it is
as light as a feather.

Before I go out,
into the battle field
I pray that my faith
will protect and shield.

For I know my enemy,
is evil and wicked
his schemes and plans
are devious and twisted.

On my own power,
I don’t seek or strive . . .
for only on God’s might
can each battle, I survive!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power
of his might.

Life On The Battlefield ~

Life on the battlefield,
is no easy task . . .
for our daily strength
God we need to ask.

His Word will equip us,
so we can have victory
otherwise our lives
will be full of misery.

For our enemy is evil,
his tactics even worse
they are diabolical
corrupt and perverse.

We’ll need to be ready,
to fight the wickedness
as our enemy is known
for his ruthlessness.

Life in the faithful fight,
is no easy one . . .
but with the power of God
it’s one that will be won!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:39

For thou hast girded me
with strength unto the battle:
thou hast subdued under me
those that rose up against me.

Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.

Sticky Note to God ~02.12.21~

1 John 4:8


Evildoers ~

Evildoers are all around,
with haughty eyes they do seek
all those who they believe . . .
are the world’s meek and weak.

But, we who trust in the Lord,
have nothing to really fear
though they our reputations . . .
want to destroy and smear.

Evildoers roam the earth,
with lying tongues they preach
fake reports to the masses
so their discord they can teach.

But, we who have the truth,
know these things God does hate
we follow not what they say . . .
but, we keep to the way straight.

Evildoers with wicked plans,
they do surround us all around
but, we who trust in our Lord
in Him keep our mind’s sound!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 6:16-19

These six things doth
the Lord hate:
yea, seven are an
abomination unto him:

A proud look, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed
innocent blood,

An heart that deviseth wicked
imaginations, feet that be swift
in running to mischief,

A false witness that speaketh lies,
and he that soweth
discord among brethren.

Ephesians 6:12-13


Born Into Rebellion ~

Born into rebellion,
rotten to the core
too evil to hear . . .
the knock on the door.

Rioting and destroying,
burning and stealing
too wicked to see . . .
the need for healing.

Prideful and lustful,
immoral and impure
too depraved to heed . . .
the call of a Savior.

Angry and destructive,
factious and divisive
too caught up being . . .
one of satan’s devices.

Born into rebellion,
bad to the bone
too rebellious to not . . .
cast the first stone!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:19-21

Now the works of the flesh are manifest,
which are these; Adultery, fornication,
uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred,
variance, emulations, wrath,
strife, seditions, heresies,

Envyings, murders, drunkenness,
revellings, and such like:
of the which I tell you before,
as I have also told you in time past,
that they which do such things
shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

The Wicked Prosper ~

Sometimes I don’t get,
why evilness prevails
how souls every day
it tempts and compels.

I don’t understand,
the wicked things people do
but, God I do know . . .
none of it comes from You.

Sometimes I don’t get,
why the wicked prosper
how they keep getting
in this world stronger.

I don’t comprehend,
the evilness they do
but, Jesus I do know . . .
they don’t follow You.

Sometimes I don’t get,
why evilness dominates
but, God I do know . . .
how the devil operates!

~~~~~~

Jeremiah 12:1-2

Righteous art thou, O Lord,
when I plead with thee:
yet let me talk with thee
of thy judgments:

Wherefore doth the way
of the wicked prosper?
wherefore are all they
happy that deal very
treacherously?

Thou hast planted them, yea,
they have taken root:
they grow, yea, they bring
forth fruit: thou art near
in their mouth,
and far from their reins.

A Saving Ray of Light ~

Though the sun is out,
it’s as if it’s still night
for the darkness I see
permeates my sight.

No matter where I look,
I see the wickedness . . .
no matter where I go
I see satan’s evilness.

Though it’s a new day,
I’m engulfed by dread
as I watch immorality
over the universe spread.

It’s as if a dark cloud,
hangs over God’s creation
it’s as if the whole world
with satan has a fixation.

Thought the sun is out,
and it be a new day . . .
I know the Light of Jesus
still has a saving ray!

~~~~~~~~~~

 John 12:46

I am come a light into the world,
that whosoever believeth on me
should not abide in darkness.

Worldly Wise ~

Worldly wise,
God has your number
in your wicked ways
He see you lumber.

You may think,
you are smarter
but He sees
the sin you harbor.

Worldly wise,
God’s know your game
you think you’re clever
but He knows your frame.

You think you can,
out smart Him
but there’s no way
in the end you’ll win.

Worldly wise,
God’s on to you
He knows the evil
you choose to do!

~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 1:19

For it is written,
I will destroy the wisdom
of the wise, and will bring
to nothing the understanding
of the prudent.

Isaiah 5:20

Woe unto them that call evil good,
and good evil; that put darkness
for light, and light for darkness;
that put bitter for sweet,
and sweet for bitter!

Truly Loathsome~

All we humans,
are truly loathsome
we are all to God . . .
far from wholesome.

But, we who repent,
have been forgiven
and to evil we are . . .
no longer driven.

We are all wicked,
utterly revolting
we are all to God
wrath provoking.

But, we who confess,
our every transgression
are no longer filled
with sin’s obsession.

All we humans,
are detestable beings
but, we who love Jesus . . .
in heaven we’ll be seeing!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 20:43

And there shall ye remember your ways,
and all your doings, wherein ye have
been defiled; and ye shall lothe
yourselves in your own sight for
all your evils that ye have committed.

Acts 3:19

Repent ye therefore, and be converted,
that your sins may be blotted out,
when the times of refreshing shall
come from the presence of the Lord.

From The Get-Go ~

From the beginning,
God loved His creation
it brought to His heart
pure joy and elation.

But, then one evil day,
satan into it entered in
introducing to man
temptation and sin.

From the get-go,
man always had a choice
to walk with God
or listen to satan’s voice.

But man chose to follow,
the ways of the devil
bringing grief to God’s heart
on every single level.

From the beginning,
God knew the mind of man
so He gave His only Son . . .
to fulfill salvation’s plan!

~~~~~~

Genesis 3:2-4

And the woman said unto the serpent,
We may eat of the fruit of the trees
of the garden:

But of the fruit of the tree which is
in the midst of the garden,
God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it,
neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman,
Ye shall not surely die:

Genesis 6:6

And it repented the Lord
that he had made man on
the earth, and it grieved
him at his heart.

How Much Longer God ~

Sometimes the reality,
of a world gone haywire
takes away all my joy
in the hairs of its crossfire.

For with all the evil I see,
and all the horror I hear
all I can do is ask . . .
why Jesus, aren’t You here?

Sometimes the truth,
of a world gone amok
takes away my peace
leaving me awestruck.

For with all the tragedy,
the death and the disasters
I can’t help but to wonder . . .
why Lord, can’t You come faster?

Sometimes the horror,
of a world gone roughshod
I can’t help but to ask . . .
how much longer, oh my God!

Psalm 10:1

Why standest thou afar off,
O Lord?
why hidest thou thyself
in times of trouble?

My Heart’s Response ~

My mind said to me,
look at what you can do
my heart responded . . .
Lord, not without you.

My mind told me,
all this could be yours
my heart answered . . .
don’t open those doors.

My mind stressed to me,
see all you can enjoy
my heart advised . . .
don’t fall for satan’s ploy.

My mind reasoned with me,
you needn’t be concerned
my heart spoke clearly . . .
that’s not what you’ve learned.

My mind said to me,
ah, go ahead and just do it
my heart told me . . .
don’t listen to that evil spirit!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 4:8-10

Again, the devil taketh him up into
an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth
him all the kingdoms of the world,
and the glory of them;

And saith unto him, All these things
will I give thee, if thou wilt fall
down and worship me.

Then saith Jesus unto him,
Get thee hence, Satan: for it
is written, Thou shalt worship
the Lord thy God, and him only
shalt thou serve.

With Due Diligence ~

 

With due diligence,
we must stay alert
so that satan’s darts
we can safely avert.

For he is the master,
of many disguises
obscuring the truth
is his evil enterprise.

We must keep sober,
we must stay aware
so into satan’s traps
we won’t be snared.

For he is out to kill,
devour and destroy
anyone who doesn’t fall
for the lures he employs.

With due consideration,
we must be forever watchful
for satan distorts the light . . .
and we must remain careful!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:16

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

1 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:

2 Corinthians 11:14

And no marvel; for Satan himself
is transformed into an angel of light.

Sticky Note to God ~03.07.19~


Nameless Faces ~

Spiritual warfare,
in heavenly places
sinister, vile forces
with nameless faces.

Evil and wickedness,
we’re all up against
the armor of God
is our only defense.

Sober and watchful,
we have got to be
for the devil prowls
to devour you and me.

Submitting to God,
withstanding the day
trusting in His word
to keep darkness at bay.

Spiritual warfare,
each day we must fight
for even satan disguises . . .
himself as the true light!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:11

“Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.”

“And no marvel;
for Satan himself

A Light For Jesus ~

Jesus let me be,
a light for You
help me to expose
the evil people do.

Let me be a voice,
to those who are lost
help me to bring them
to the foot of the cross.

Jesus let me be,
a light of Your grace
help me to help those
still running in the race.

Let me be an example,
of hope, love and peace
help me to help them
the finish line to reach.

Jesus let me be,
a light just for You
help me to debunk . . .
today’s opposing view!

~~~~~~~

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.”

But, Take Heart ~

Take heart,
faith, do not lose
don’t let the evil-minded
give you the blues.

For, peace can be yours,
if you so elect
when onto Jesus
your eyes you direct.

Take heart,
joy, do not let go of
don’t let the enemy
overpower His love.

For, hope is yours,
in a world bearing none
for over the wicked
Jesus already won.

Take heart,
hold on to your faith and trust
for Jesus overcame . . .
the evilness all around us!

~~~~~~~

John 16:33

I have said these things to you,
that in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation.
But take heart;
I have overcome the world.”

It’s No Wonder ~

One Way used with permission Creatoin Swap

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so much pain today
no one seeks the Lord
all have gone their own way.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so many broken homes
no one stays around
all wander off and roam.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so much excessive greed
no one reads the Word
all don’t see salvation’s need.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so many who are lost
no one acknowledges their sin
all eyes are off the Cross.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so much turmoil going on
no one trusts in God
all His commandments are now gone.

It’s no wonder . . .
there’s so much pain today
no one repents of their wickedness
all deny their own decay!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6
