Never Alone ~

You are never alone,
Jesus is with you
in His eyes . . .
you’re always in view.

He is always with you,
constantly by your side
leave you He will not
for in you He abides.

You are never alone,
Jesus’ Spirit is in you
to guide and lead
in all things you do.

He walks with you,
carries your load
He goes with you
no matter the road.

You are never alone,
Jesus won’t depart
for He is right there
dwelling in your heart!


Matthew 28:20

“Teaching them to observe
all things whatsoever
I have commanded you:
and, lo, I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world.”

Oh, So Willing ~

Lord, You know we can’t do,
anything without You
You also know . . .
we’ll still try to.

You know in our flesh,
we’re so very weak
You also know . . .
it’s our own will we seek.

Lord, You know we want,
to always follow after You
You also know . . .
sometimes it’s hard to do.

You know our spirit,
is oh, so willing
You also know . . .
what our heart is feeling.

Lord, You know us,
better than we do
tis why we all need to . . .
surrender all to You!


Mark 14:38

“The spirit truly is ready,
but the flesh is weak.”

Stop And Pray Each Day ~


Each day we need,
to stop and pray
and listen to . . .
what God has to say.

We need to pray,
for His mercy anew
so temptation
we can subdue.

We need to pray,
for more grace
so the enemy
we can face.

We need to pray,
for His favor
if our faith
should waiver.

We Need to pray,
for His healing balm
to help keeps us
still and calm.

We need to pray,
for His power
so we’ll have victory
no matter the hour.

We need to pray,
for His wisdom
to give to us
a clear vision.

Each day we need,
to continually pray . . .
for we never know
what’ll come our way!


1 Thessalonians 5:17

“Pray without ceasing.”

Wit’s End ~

When faced with a dilemma,
and you don’t know what to do
when pastors and counselors
no longer are able to help you.

When you have exhausted,
all of your family and friends
when you’ve tried everything
but, to your problem there’s no end.

When there’s no one else,
to whom your gut you can spill
and you still need to know
for yourself, what is God’s will.

Before you even reach,
the end of your wit
before you start to think
of calling it quits.

That’s when you need to go,
to God who’s orchestrated
the solution to your problem . . .
before it even formulated!


Psalm 33:11

“The counsel of the Lord
standeth for ever, the thoughts
of his heart to all generations.

Good Morning Quote ~02.23.18~

Afternoon Ponderings ~02.17.18~

Look Up To God ~

Early in the morning,
before your arise . . .
make sure to your worries
you keep God apprised.

Let Him know before,
you get your day started
why it is that you feel
fearful and fainthearted.

Early in the morning,
as the sun comes up
before you pour coffee
into your mug or cup.

Let God know how much,
you need Him to be with you
how impossible it’d be
without Him to make it through.

Early in the morning
before out of bed you climb
look up to God and spend . . .
with Him some quality time!


Psalm 5:3

“My voice shalt thou
hear in the morning,
O Lord; in the morning
will I direct my prayer
unto thee, and will look up.”

You Can Rest Assured ~

When into the unknown,
God has you to go
you can rest assured . . .
a way He will show.

For, before you He’s gone,
and a path He has paved
so there’s no need for you
to be fearful or afraid.

When into the uncharted,
God has you to journey
you can rest assured . . .
there’s no need to worry.

For, He has walked,
for you down that road
and has already carried
for you, your heavy load.

When into the uncharted,
or be it the unknown
you can rest assured . . .
you will not be alone!


Deuteronomy 31:8

“And the Lord, he it is that doth
go before thee; he will be with thee,
he will not fail thee,
neither forsake thee:
fear not, neither be dismayed.”

Constant Guidance ~

The Lord will guide me,
this I haven’t any doubt
but it’s up to me . . .
not to shut His voice out.

I will need to be open,
to His divine leading
and to His written Word
I’ll need to do some heeding.

The Lord will lead me,
all I have to do is ask
but, it’s up to me . . .
to be ready for the task.

I will need to be at peace,
wherever He may take me
for, only He truly knows
what my future is to be.

The Lord will guide,
lead me continually . . .
but, I must trust Him
with my life constantly!


Isaiah 58:11

“And the Lord shall guide thee continually,
and satisfy thy soul in drought,
and make fat thy bones:
and thou shalt be like a watered garden,
and like a spring of water,
whose waters fail not.”

Written On My Heart ~

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be written on my heart
so that from Your ways
I will not ever depart.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
in my soul be embedded
so to the narrow gate
I’ll always be headed.

Oh, Lord may Your Word,
be my constant guide
so that with You in heaven
one day I will abide.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be my only light source
so I may be filled  . . .
with Your mighty force.

Oh Lord, may Your Word,
be imprinted on my mind
so if I should ever stray
the way back to You I’ll find!


Psalm 119:11

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee.”

My Steps Are Preset ~

This year I’m stepping out,
letting my faith take me
to wherever God wants
or plans for me to be.

My steps He will order,
upon a firm foundation
so I will need to be ready
to fall into formation.

If I should stumble,
I know I will not fall
for God will uphold me
when on His name I call.

Onward I will go,
on the path God determines
for I know He has for me
some faith building excursions.

If I should lose my way,
I know I will not get lost
for God will encourage me
to keep my eyes on the cross.

This year I’m stepping out,
trusting the way God will direct
for I know my steps of faith . . .
He’s already planned and preset!


Psalm 37:23-24

“The steps of a good man
are ordered by the Lord:
and he delighteth in his way.

Though he fall, he shall not
be utterly cast down:
for the Lord upholdeth
him with his hand.”

Lord, Be Not Far From Me ~

Lord, be not far from me,
be not faraway . . .
come close and hold me
be one with me today.

Lord, be not removed,
be not from me too far
come close and lead me
be my bright guiding star.

Lord, be not remote,
be not from me far apart
come close and help me
be with me in soul and heart.

Lord, be not far or distant,
be not from me isolated
come close and guide me
let us never be separated.

Lord, be not faraway,
be not from me afar
come close and take me . . .
right to where You are!


Psalm 27:9

“Hide not thy face far from me;
put not thy servant away in anger:
thou hast been my help;
leave me not,
neither forsake me,
O God of my salvation.”

Staying On the Righteous Path ~

I’ve traveled many roads,
much to my dismay . . .
I walked along the path
of sin and decay.

I’ve climbed over mountains,
in my own egotistical pride
I walked in valley’s deep
with conceit as my guide.

But, I grew so very weary,
on the pathway’s of leeway
and the latitude I gave myself
on my soul began to weigh.

So, I began a new journey,
one that was Spirit lead
and now all the other routes
fill me with fear and dread.

For in God’s Word,
I discovered the path
guaranteed to keep me
from knowing God’s wrath!


Proverbs 2:20

“That thou mayest walk
in the way of good men,
and keep the paths
of the righteous.”

Not A Word ~

Awhile ago,
I said me a prayer
asking God to help me
with one of my cares.

I waited patiently,
for Him to reply
but, I heard not a word
as time went by.

At first I was grieved,
by God’s silence
for, I so needed Him
to give me guidance.

But, as the days went on,
my faith grew stronger
and my doubt in Him
deterred me no longer.

Then one day I saw,
much to my surprise . . .
His answer was always
right before my eyes!


Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith it is impossible
to please him: for he that cometh
to God must believe that he is,
and that he is a rewarder of them
that diligently seek him.

Matthew 15:22-23

“And, behold, a woman of Canaan
came out of the same coasts,
and cried unto him, saying,
Have mercy on me, O Lord,
thou son of David;
my daughter is grievously
vexed with a devil.

But he answered her not a word.
And his disciples came and
besought him, saying,
Send her away; for she
crieth after us.”

Your Heart’s Desires ~

If you want God to give you,
your heart’s desires . . .
then for Him your soul
must fan grateful fires.

You need to be elated,
with His loving kindness
you need to be delighted
in all of His goodness.

You need to take pleasure,
in the righteous way of living
you need in all things
to give Him your  thanksgiving.

You need to be excited,
by the joy of your salvation
you need to be exuberant
He saved you from damnation.

If you want God to give you,
your heart’s desires . . .
you can’t become complacent
with doing what He requires!


Psalm 37:4

“Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee the desires
of thine heart.”

In My Bible ~

Somethings in my Bible I’ve found  . . .

the Word of Life
the end to strife
the mind of God
the road that’s broad
the state of man
the eternal plan
the heart of Jesus
the grace that frees us
the true Vine
the new wine
the gift of salvation
the doom of damnation
the way of hope
the how to cope
the river of pleasure
the everlasting treasure
the guidance needed
the laws to be heeded
the mercy-seat
the Savior’s feet
the schemes of the devil
the powers in high-levels
the Light
the fight
the path
the wrath
the Way
the escape
judgment day!


2 Timothy 2:15

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Every Hair By Number ~

If God calls,
each star by their name
would He not for His children
do the very same?

If God feeds,
the birds on the fly
would He not for His children
their daily needs supply?

If God considers,
all the lilies of the field
would He not for His children
be their protective shield?

If God knows,
when a sparrows about to fall
would He not for His children
hear them when they call?

If God keeps,
each creature in His sight
would He not for His children
lead them with His light?

If God counts,
every hair by number
then we as His children . . .
these question needn’t ponder!


Luke 12:7

But even the very hairs
of your head are all numbered.
Fear not therefore:
ye are of more value
than many sparrows.

Before I Met God ~

Before I met God,
I was a sinful waif
but, now He’s my Father
and keeps me safe.

He beckons to me,
to stay to Him near
and just like a Father
He calms my fear.

My Father loves me,
like no other can
for He has for me
an eternal plan.

He watches over me,
cares where I go
when I need guidance
my Father will show.

Before I meet God,
by sin I was defiled
but now He calls me . . .
His dear beloved child!


Ephesians 5:1

“Be ye therefore followers of God,
as dear children;

The Path of Truth ~

Lord, today I need
to know what is Your will
and until You show me . . .
I’ll just wait and be still.

I need Your guidance,
for the road ahead
I need the assurance
I will be Spirit lead.

Lord, today I need,
to heed what You say
so on the path of truth
I will be able to stay.

I need to learn to wait,
for the right directions
I need You to teach me
how to pay attention.

Lord, today I need to know,
what You’d have me to do
for I don’t want to walk . . .
down this road without You!


Psalm 25:5

“Lead me in thy truth,
and teach me: for thou art
the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day”

How Troubling to God ~

I wonder how troubling,
to God, that it is . .
that when we need advice
we don’t go to Him, for His?

I wonder if He scratches,
His head in amazement
to how with waiting on Him
we’ve become so impatient.

I wonder how disturbing,
to God, that it is . . .
that when we need strength
we don’t go to Him, for His

I wonder if He shakes,
His head in utter confusion
as to why we think we can do
anything without His inclusion.

I wonder how distressing,
to God, that it is . . .
that when we need direction
we don’t go to Him, for His?

I wonder if He moves,
His head from side to side
thinking how much we need
to learn in Him to abide.

I wonder how we would be,
if in God we would just trust
I wonder if then we’d see . . .
just how much He loves us!


Nahum 1:7

“The Lord is good,
a strong hold
in the day of trouble;
and he knoweth them
that trust in him.”

Sticky Note From God 09.17.17

Prayers For You My Friend ~

God put you my friend,
on my heart today
He told me for you
He wanted me to pray.

So I went to Him,
while on my knees
and sent up for you
theses heartfelt pleas.

Oh, Father whatsoever,
is Your perfect will
till my friend knows
help them to be still.

Take away their fears,
guard their heart and mind
so that on this journey
your peace they can find.

Be with them always,
do not leave their side
let the Light in Your Word
be their constant guide.

Give them Your power,
the courage to press on
let them claim victory
in the name of Your Son.

Help them not to get tired,
in the battle they must fight
let them feel energized
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

Oh, Father I believe,
you listen to our prayers
and so I come to You  . . .
with my friend’s earthly cares!


James 5:16

Those Still Waters ~

When my spirit,
is weighted down
from the tension
that is all around.

My Good Shepherd,
brings to me
those still waters
where peace flows free.

When my spirit,
feels weary and spent
from all the cares
today I have met.

My Good Shepherd,
leads me to
those calming waters
where peace runs true.

When my spirit,
feels out of control
it’s in those still waters
Jesus calms my soul!


Psalm 23:2

” He leadeth me beside
the still waters.”
