Put God Before You ~

Make God first in your life,
put Him before you . . .
open up your heart to Him
then watch what He can do.

He’ll guide you into valleys,
ripe and lush and green
where you’ll find His peace
to gather, reap and glean.

Put God ahead of you,
let Him guide you each day
open up your mind to Him
then let Him lead the way.

He’ll take you to mountains,
rough and tough and steep
where you’ll find His strength,
to climb, to mount, to leap.

Make God first in your life,
in your soul, mind and heart
put God before you . . .
upon each morning start!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.

Proverbs 3:6

In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.

Merge ~

Lord, show me Your will,
keep me on the right course
teach me to trust You
as my navigation source.

Lead me in Your truth,
guide me all my days
give me Your direction
in all of my ways.

Instruct me to wait,
until Your ready for me
grant me Thy patience
till it’s Your will I see.

Train me to follow,
after Your every deed
offer me Your wisdom
to see You’re all I need.

Enlighten my soul,
to Your every urge . . .
keep me in Your sight
until our paths merge!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:4-5

“Shew me thy ways,
O Lord; teach me thy paths.

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

James 1:5


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!

Good Morning Quote ~06.11.21~


Be Still & Know ~

Stop what you’re doing,
I want you to be awed
be still and know
that I am your God.

Quit trying,
let Me take care of you
quit stumbling
I know just what to do.

Quick fretting,
let Me work this out
quit worrying
give Me all your doubt.

Quit panicking,
I have your back
quit struggling
I know your lack.

Quit resisting,
your life is in My hand
quit refusing
your days I have planned.

Be still . . .
and know I am God
stop what you’re doing
and in Me be awed
!

Heavenly Guidance ~

Heavenly guidance,
we all need to seek
for it will give strength
whenever we’re weak.

But it will take us,
some doing on our part
to hear the Holy Spirit
speaking to our heart.

Heavenly counseling,
we all need to pray for
for it will lead us
straight to heaven’s door.

But we need to learn,
to wait and be still
and not budge an inch
until we know God’s will.

Heavenly guidance,
we all need to find
for it brings peace
to both heart and mind!

I will instruct thee

Sticky Note to God ~06.08.21~

Psalm 32:8


Jesus Is My Shepherd

Jesus is my Shepherd,
His voice I do hear . . .
I follow It so to Him
I can stay close and near.

I listen for Him to tell me,
where He wants me to go
then with confidence
I let Him the way show.

I take my cues from Him,
not to wander or to stray
for by His side is indeed
the safest place to stay.

I entrust Him with my life,
for He gave His own for me
my faith in Him goes beyond
all I can and cannot see.

Jesus is my Shepherd,
His voice I listen to . . .
right now He is telling me
He wants you, to hear Him too!

Whisper’s From God ~

The Lord whispers,
ever quietly, ever still
with a wisp of His breath
He lets us know His will.

He nudges our hearts,
with a gentle voice
so that we can make
the righteous choice.

With whisper’s He warns,
of the dangers ahead
softly He appeals . . .
for us not to be misled.

He murmurs into our ears,
with a subtle like urging
for us to take heed
of His loving nudging.

The Lord whispers,
in a voice still and low
pleading gently to us
to let Him ~ the way show!

~~~~~~~~

1 Kings 19:11-12

And he said, Go forth, and stand
upon the mount before the Lord.
And, behold, the Lord passed by,
and a great and strong wind rent
the mountains, and brake in pieces
the rocks before the Lord; but the
Lord was not in the wind: and after
the wind an earthquake; but the
Lord was not in the earthquake:

And after the earthquake a fire;
but the Lord was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice.

Being Faithful ~

Life isn’t about our dreams,
ambitions or desires . . .
it’s about being faithful
no matter what transpires.

It’s believing in what’s right,
trusting the unseen evidence
embracing the Gospel truth
without doubt or hesitance.

It’s being certain and sure,
Jesus will do what He said
the confidence in knowing
by His Spirit we’ll be led.

It’s about our conviction,
to seize and embrace
the hope of our future glory
through the gift of grace.

Life isn’t about our wants,
it’s about our eternal need
it’s about if God’s Word . . .
we choose to obey and heed!

~~~~~~~~~~


Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the

God’s Hand Of Faithfulness ~

God’s hand of faithfulness,
can be seen in my life
though the times of rest
and those full of strife.

He held on to me,
with His merciful hand
as He revealed to me
what was for me His plan.

God’s hand of faithfulness,
led and guided me
through the days of peace
and those angry as a sea.

He wrote my name,
on His palm He inscribed
His promise to me
to always be at my side.

God’s hand of faithfulness,
has always been loyal
through the good times
throughout all my trials!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves therefore

A Trust Tangible ~

Lord give me a heart,
one willing to go do
everything You ask
though I don’t know how to.

Let me not count on,
my own comprehending
instead let me rely on
what is Your understanding.

Lord give me a mind,
one able to go act
anything You require
without knowing the facts.

Let me not refer,
to my own way of thinking
instead let me employ
Your way of reasoning,

Lord give me a heart,
with a trust tangible
give me a mind . . .
filled with Your rational!

Psalm 23:3


Wait For It ~

God is not asking you,
to go figure things out
He’s asking you to wait . . .
without having any doubt.

For He already has,
an answer to your prayer
now He wants you to be
to His directions aware.

God is not saying to you,
to run off and go and fix it
He’s telling you to be still . . .
so you can hear His Spirit.

When He’s ready Your answer,
He will stamp on it the date
now He’s asking you to have
the courage to sit and wait

God is not asking you,
to rush off and go do
He’s saying wait for it . . .
and He’ll show you how to!

of Your purposes for me

Good Morning Quote ~03.05.21~


I Write In Rhyme ~

I write with rhythm,
I write in rhyme . . .
so to express my faith
as mountain’s I climb.

I open my mind,
to the Spirit’s leading
so to share with others
my uphill pleading’s.

I write with timing,
I write with a beat
so to help others
to stay on their feet.

I open my heart,
let the words flow
until I’m once again
in the valley below.

I write in rhyme,
I write out a poem
to encourage others
from God not to roam!
