Rejoice, Rejoice In the Lord ~

Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord,
be glad and shout out with joy
for He will uplift you . . .
and your doubts He’ll destroy.

For those who trust in the Lord,
haven’t anything to fear
because they know to them
He is always close and near.

Rejoice all who love the Lord,
with delight give Him your praise
His power and strength is yours
when the shield of faith you raise.

Stand up against the wicked one,
don’t believe in his lies
for God blesses all who trust
with a heart that is wise.

Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord,
and again I say rejoice . . .
lift up your jubilant praise
let God hear your joyous voice!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:4

“Rejoice
in the Lord alway:
[and] again

I say, Rejoice.”

Lessons On The Sea ~

On the sea of doubt,
I have learned to be
fearless as the waves
come crashing over me.

For, I know to be strong,
even when I’m frightened
my grip on Jesus . . .
must remain tightened.

On the sea of worry,
I have learned to be
not so overwhelmed
by what I cannot see.

For, I know to be brave,
even when I’m terrified
my eyes on Jesus . . .
musn’t be cast aside.

The lessons on the sea,
of worry and doubt . . .
have taught how to shut
fear and apprehension out!

~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not, nor be afraid of them:
for the Lord thy God, he it is
that doth go with thee; he will
not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Psalm 107:29

He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still.

Faith Unclouded ~

Faith that is foggy,
makes it hard to find
the road to having
eternal peace of mind.

For, we can’t navigate,
the turns and the bends
unless on Jesus . . .
we learn to depend.

Faith that is misty,
makes it hard to know
how the Holy Spirit
the way out will show.

For we can’t see through,
the haze lying ahead
so that we can be . . .
by Him guided and led.

Faith that is unclouded,
clear and pristine
is faith that believes . . .
beyond things unseen!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.

White-Knuckled Faith ~

White-knuckled faith,
holds on tightly to fear
has a hard time . . .
getting trust into gear.

It becomes panicky,
when danger is met
rather having peace
it knows only how to fret.

White-knuckled faith,
struggles often with hope
has a hard time . . .
knowing just how to cope.

It’s filled with the dread,
that scares and terrifies
over every concern
it panics and agonizes.

White-knuckled faith,
can be only cured
if into fear’s snare. . .
it stops being lured!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 29:25

The fear of man bringeth a snare:
but whoso putteth his trust in
the Lord shall be safe.

Pieces of Graces ~

Each morning as I awake,
Jesus is waiting for me . . .
I sense His very presence
though His person I can’t see.

An endless supply of mercy,
greets me upon the break of day
as pieces of His grace descends
for me to reap along my way.

Each day there is an assurance,
my burden’s He will bear
for I know Jesus is here with me
though I don’t see Him there.

His peace is all surrounding,
it engulfs my heart and soul
all of my worries and fears
He comforts and consoles.

Each morning when I awake,
I feel a sense of conforming
though Jesus I cannot see . . .
His love for me is confirming!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 143:8

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness
in the morning; for in thee do I trust:
cause me to know the way wherein I
should walk; for I lift up my soul
unto thee.

Faith Swells ~

Faith rises,
in the waves
for our Savior
we know will save.

Then when life,
comes crashing down
in troubles waters
we will not drown.

Faith swells,
in the surges
where hope in God
onward urges.

Then when challenges,
are all surrounding
our confidence
will keep abounding.

Faith rises,
above the swells
it comes from where
the Holy Spirit dwells!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 14:30-31

But when he saw the wind boisterous,
he was afraid; and beginning to sink,
he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

And immediately Jesus stretched forth
his hand, and caught him, and said
unto him, O thou of little faith,
wherefore didst thou doubt?

Psalm 107:29

He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof
are still.

I Have God’s Power ~

I have God’s power,
it’s right inside of me
it blesses me with faith
for things I can’t see.

It dissipates the doubt,
evaporates the fear
it allows me to believe
my God is always near.

I have God’s power,
He gave it to me the day
when to His Son . . .
I gave my heart away.

It lifted the darkness,
revealing His True Light
giving me the ability
to trust in His holy might.

I have God’s power,
to believe without seeing
it fills me with such hope
tis why it’s so freeing!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:19

And what is the exceeding
greatness of his power to
us-ward who believe,
according to the working
of his mighty power

Soar~

Eagles wings,
oh, how they soar
above the world’s
menacing roar.

Glide in faith,
on the air of trust
grows not weary
against the thrust.

Eagles wings,
strong and sure
torrid weather
they do endure.

Fainting not,
upon resistance
fly on hope
to go the distance.

Eagles wings,
mount and rise
above the fear . . .
before their eyes!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait
upon the Lord shall
renew their strength;
they shall mount up
with wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.

Our Wants, God’s Will ~

Our wants,
God’s will
our fears
He stills

Our desires,
God’s plans
our hopes
His hands.

Our longings,
God’s grace
our dreams
His face.

Our trust,
God’s way
our chance
now today.

Our hearts,
God’s will
our souls
He fills!

Anxiety’s Trap ~

I felt the trap,
of anxiety
set a snare
on my sanity.

The conditions,
were just ripe
that at my heart
it took a swipe.

I took the bait,
ran away with it
then fell into
a nervous snit.

It took some time,
for me to see
this isn’t where
God wants me.

So I sent my own trap,
for anxiety . . .
now with God’s love
fear had no priority!

~~~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made
perfect in love.

Fear Comes In Waves ~

Fear is like the ocean,
it comes in with a roar
knocking you off your feet
throwing you to the floor.

It swells and it rises,
with its pulsing sound
so that panic stricken
you’ll stay on the ground.

Fear is like thunder,
it scares as it rumbles
causing you to shake
in midst of your troubles.

It alarms and startles,
with each booming strike
filling you with dread
upon each clap of light.

Fear come in waves,
in and out it ebbs
but, we who trust Jesus
musn’t let in our heads!

~~~~~~

Psalm 56:3

What time I am afraid,
I will trust in thee.

Psalm 93:4

“The Lord on high is mightier
than the noise of many waters,
yea, than the mighty waves
of the sea.”

Untouched ~

My thoughts were a whirl,
spinning round and round
making it hard for me
to find secure ground.

I grabbed and grasped,
anything I could find
hoping I could gain
some peace of mind.

My faith was adrift,
seemingly lost at sea
making it hard for me
my Savior to see.

I gasped and groaned,
as to Him I cried out
Lord, help save me
from this sea of doubt.

He threw me an anchor,
on to which I clutched
and by this life storm . . .
I was left untouched!

Hebrews 6:19

Which hope we have as an
anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast,

I’ll Praise Him No Matter What ~

Lord, I’ll praise You in the quietness,
when my soul is at rest
I’ll praise You in the tranquil times
when I’m feeling oh, so blessed.

I’ll praise You while in the valley,
when my spirit is feeling low
I’ll praise You in darker times
when I’m not sure which way to go.

I’ll praise You from the mountain top,
when my heart with You is right
I’ll praise You for each victory
when I’m soaking in Your light.

I’ll praise You in the gusts that blow,
when my soul is tossed about
I’ll praise You in the stormy sea
when I am struggling with doubt.

Lord, I’ll praise You no matter what,
be it I am blessed or stressed
I will praise You regardless . . .
if  I am anxious or at rest!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 46:1-3

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

Therefore will not we fear,
though the earth be removed,

and though the mountains be
carried into the midst of the sea;

though the waters thereof
roar and be troubled,

though the mountains shake
with the swelling thereof. Selah.

The Road To Victory ~

This road’s going to be hard,
I know it will be tough
I know the battle ahead
will be stormy and rough.

But, this I know and believe,
the fight is not mine solely
for Jesus will be with me
through this journey entirely.

This road is going to be long,
I know it will be grueling
I know the struggle will be
uphill and exhausting.

But, this I know and believe,
God’s Word will keep me going
and through the  challenges
the way He will be showing.

This road’s going to be hard,
don’t know how long on it I’ll spend
but, I know and believe . . .
victory will be mine in the end!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:4

For whatsoever is born of God

Restless No More ~

When your worries,
leave you restless
and your fears
render you useless.

That’s when you need,
to ask God to free you
from the concerns
that you’re enslaved to.

When your anxieties,
leave you jittery
and your emotions
cause you misery.

That’s when you need,
to ask Jesus to impart
the calm only He can
bring into your heart.

When your fears and cares,
have you feeling edgy
let the peace of Jesus . . .
make your nerves steady!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:28-30

Come unto me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you,
and learn of me; for I am meek
and lowly in heart: and ye
shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.

Oh, If I Could Fly Away ~

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d soar into my Savior’s arms
there I would find my quiet rest
and be safe from all that harms.

I would take off and reside,
under the shadow of His wings
I’d be free from all the strife
living in this world often brings.

Oh, if I could fly away,
like an eagle I’d mount and rise
and climb to where His peace
would calm my fearful cries.

I would go right up to Him,
lay my burdens at His feet
and with Jesus I would find
my everlasting retreat.

Oh, if I could fly away,
if I had wings like a dove
I’d soar right up to heaven
and rest in His eternal love.

I would climb so ever high,
till I found His stillness
I would dive into His calm
and sop up His quietness.

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d take you along with me . . .
and together we’d find rest
throughout all of eternity!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:6

“And I said, Oh that I had wings like a
dove! for then would I fly away, and be
at rest.”

End Those Painful Memories ~

For some the battle rages,
deep inside their head
where memories of the past
fill them with fear and dread.

They hold on to the picture,
that paints a horrific view
of what people once did . . .
and what they still can do.

Jesus can fix those images,
locked up in your mind
He has a brighter landscape
for you to come and find.

There you’ll have a new life,
one that holds His peace
and those painful old pictures
will fade away and cease.

For some the past fills them,
with sadness, despair and dread
but with Jesus there’s hope . . .
for a joyful future ahead!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-15

 Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things
which are behind, and
reaching forth unto those
things which are before,

I press toward the mark for
the prize of the high calling
of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us therefore, as many as be
perfect, be thus minded: and
if in any thing ye be otherwise
minded, God shall reveal
even this unto you.

Sticky Note From God~ 04.04.19~


When Doubt Whispers ~

When doubt whispers,
in your ear . . .
tell it right away
to get out of here.

For if you listen,
to what it has to say
it will ruin
the rest of your day.

When doubt looks,
into your eyes
don’t you believe
its fearful lies.

For if you believe,
what it wants you to
with your thoughts
it will twist and skew.

When doubt comes,
close and near
don’t look at it
or give it an ear!

~~~~~~

James 1:6

But let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering.
For he that wavereth
is like a wave of the sea
driven with the wind
and tossed.

God Gives Shade ~

God gives shade,
to us when weary
provides a cover
when we’re dreary.

He shadows us with,
His mighty wings
helps us to rise
above all things.

God gives shade,
to us when frayed
provides a screen
when burden lade.

He shields us with,
His right hand
holds us upright
when we can’t stand.

God gives shade,
to us when dismayed
so His glory on us . . .
can be displayed!

Psalm 121:5

“The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon
thy right hand.”

Make Haste Lord ~

Make haste Lord,
do not be slow
Your help I need
for You to bestow.

Hurry up Lord,
do not tarry
alone this burden
I cannot carry.

Come quickly Lord,
do not delay
send more mercy
to me straight away.

Speed it up Lord,
do not meander
save me swiftly
from this disaster.

Make haste Lord,
run if You will
I so need You . . .
my heart to still!

“But be not thou far from me,
O Lord: O my strength,
haste thee to help me.”

Renewed Each Day ~

I would have lost heart,
given up on spiritual things
I would have fainted away
from the troubles life brings.

I would have passed out,
lost my faith and my hope
I would have lost count
just thrown in the rope.

I would have sunk under,
the pressure of my fears
I would have called it quits
amidst all of my tears.

I would have been crushed,
under my heavy load
I would have gotten off
the narrow traveled road.

I would have lost heart,
if each day I wasn’t renewed
I would have given up Lord . . .
if I didn’t keep my eyes on You!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

“Therefore we do not lose heart.
Though
outwardly we are
wasting away,yet inwardly 

we are being renewed day by day.
For our 
light affliction,
which is but for a moment, is 

working for us a far more exceeding
and 
eternal weight of glory,
while we do not look 

at the things which are seen,
but at the 
things which are not seen.
For the things
which are seen
are temporary,
but the things 
which are not seen
are eternal.”

Be Anxious For Naught ~

Be anxious for naught,
let nothing cause you dread
let go of that worry
filling up in your head.

Be concerned for zilch,
let Jesus take your care
let go of all that you fear
so your anxiety He can bear.

Be nervous for nada,
let Jesus have your doubt
let go of those problems
that are stressing you out.

Be burdened for zip,
let your troubles not alarm
let go of that heavy load
place it all in Jesus’ arms.

Be anxious for nothing,
is Jesus’ command to us
His peace He wants to give . . .
if we’d just let go and trust!

Mountain Moving ~

God gave me this mountain,
and told me to believe . . .
His strength and might
from Him I would receive.

So, I gathered up my faith,
though I admit it was small
compared to this mountain
that seemed seven-miles tall.

I looked at the obstacles,
I knew were in my way
and then I paraphrased
what Jesus had to say . . .

If you do not doubt,
you can save a lot of time
and pick that mountain up
instead of making the climb.

So, I mustered up the power,
that Jesus left for me . . .
picked that mountain up
and now I’m burden free!

~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a
grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.”

Words Grace Laced ~

Words graced laced,
we daily need to hear
for they dispel worry
help eliminate fear.

Words mercy mingled,
we all need to speak
for they give strength
to those who are weak.

Words love lifted,
are pleasant in deed
for they reassure those
who are wanting in need.

Words keen on kindness,
are music to the soul
for they sooth and comfort
when life take its toll.

Word grace laced,
and mercy mingled
are words each day
needed to be kindled!
