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
from
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!

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!

“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!

“The Lord is good,
a strong hold

that trust in him.”

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!

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!

My Soul Restored ~

My soul God restores,
whenever I stray
He leads me straight back
onto the narrow way.

He tells me where,
I have gone wrong
shows me the places
I do not belong.

My soul God restores
with His mercy and grace
for, His arms long to keep me
in His loving embrace.

He knows I’m weak,
He knows I’m frail
He knows sin in my life
must not ever prevail.

My soul God restores,
He brings it to repentance
for, His love for me . . .
is fierce and relentless!

into my life today
so that I may experience
true joy along my way.

Oh Lord, what new heights,
today will my faith take
what exciting adventure
together will we make?

What will You be sending,
so I can trust You more
what awesome works of grace
have You for me in store?

Oh Lord, what mighty things,
today have You for me

If It’s The Lord’s Will ~

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I shall
if it’s His plan
it’ll prevail.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
it will be
if it’s His vision
I’ll see.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I can
if it’s His purpose
He’ll plan.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
He’ll show
if it’s His design
I’ll go.

If it’s the Lord’s will,
I’ll be excepting
if it’s His time
it’ll be a blessing!

When With God We Walk ~

Life is a journey,
when with God we walk
and when we read the Bible
you can almost hear Him talk.

For, as we travel through,
the pages keep telling us
it is in Me . . .
that you need to trust

As we make our way,
from the old to the new
God shows everything
He desires for us to do.

For, His Word instructs us,
how we are to live and be
and if we follow it . . .
one day His glory we’ll see.

We will find God’s blessings,
as the verses we go through
mercy, grace, joy and peace
just to name a few.

Life is a journey,
when with God we walk
but, we must be willing . . .
to listen when He talks!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:19

” Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way
in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.”

Examine My Heart Lord ~

Lord, search my heart,
from the inside out
tell me where You find
places of fear and doubt.

See if You see in me,
any remaining skepticism
put into my heart
by religious dogmatism.

Lord, pull the reins,
of my heart today
steer them to follow
Your righteous ways.

Yank hard if You must,
so closer to You I’ll turn
jerk ’em if You have to
so in hell I’ll not burn.

Lord, check the fruit,
for You, I am bearing
if any be rotting . . .
be quick with Your paring.

Make sure all my doings,
are being done for You
oh, Lord examine my heart
take hold of the reins too!

~~~~~~

I the Lord search the heart,
I try the reins, even to give
every man according to his ways,
and according to the fruit
of his doings.”

Make Straight My Path Lord ~

Make straight my path Lord,
let me not stray
in the Life and the Truth
lead me to the Way.

Make firm my steps Lord,
in You, make them secure
strengthen them for me
with a faith to endure.

Make steady my feet Lord,
keep them from slipping
to the things of the world
keep my soul from falling.

Make my heart right Lord,
on Your way let me dwell
so I may be kept . . .
from the fires of hell.

Make straight my path Lord,
let me be Christ-seeking
for I put my hope and trust
in You, for safekeeping!

Jesus To The Rescue ~

Lord, today I’m feeling,
a little off course
like a ship without . . .
a navigation source.

I feel like I’m drifting,
in a sea of doubt
and I need Your guidance
to find my way out.

Things are a little foggy,
my head is feeling light
and these waves of fear
I’ll need Your help to fight.

I feel I’ll soon get caught,
like a fish on a hook
for satan’s traps and snares
are everywhere I look.

Lord, today I’m feeling,
like a ship lost at sea
so I’m counting on You . . .
to come and rescue me!

in their trouble, and he

Diligently Seeking ~

Lord, help me each day,
to diligently seek You
let it be Your light
I see shinning through.

Give me the dedication,
to study and read
so that in Your Word
I’ll find all that I need.

Lord, help me each day,
to trust in what I believe
give me the patience
so my crown I’ll receive.

Let me have the faith,
most pleasing to You
make me a believer
through and through.

Lord, help me each day,
to wait for Your direction
so that I may be rewarded
with the peace of perfection!

~~~~~~~

For, my God is faithful,
He is unchangeable

for it is infallible.

it keeps me secure
whatever comes my way
I know I will endure.

For, my God is steady,
He is immovable
with His guidance
anything is possible.

In God I put my trust,
He is my confidence
I willingly abide  . . .
under His providence!

United ~

When God teaches you,
the truth He will show
and the things of His will
you will want to know.

When God in His Word,
begins to guide you
you’ll want godly conduct
in the things that you do.

When God teaches you,
how to walk on His way
you will choose carefully
the things that you say.

When God gives directions,
to the Cross it will lead
there you’ll find Jesus
and the grace to be freed.

When God teaches you,
of His power and might  . . .
He’ll fill you with holy fear
and your hearts will unite!

Teach me thy way, O Lord;
I will walk in thy truth:

Man’s Plans ~

You may have plans,
you want to pursue
you may have ideas
brand spanking new.

But God’s purposes,
are the ones to prevail
and His intentions
you won’t be able to derail.

You may have a vision,
you want to maintain
you may have dreams
you want to attain.

But God’s designs,
cannot be thwarted
His will for your life
cannot be aborted.

You may have plans,
but only God will decide
the steps you will take
when He is your guide!

Sticky Note to God 04.29.17


God Knows Our Potential ~

God knows our potential,
before we even do
to our capabilities
He has a pristine view.

God sees our weakness,
He knows our every fear
He understands we need
the way to be made clear.

God sees our strengths,
He knows our abilities
He has eternal insight
into all our possibilities.

God sees our doubt,
He knows we’re human
He knows we need His might
to get us up and movin’.

God knows our potential,
He sees what we’re made of
He knows all we need is . . .
His guidance from above!

~~~~~~~~~~

Judges 6:12-14

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him,
and said unto him, The Lord is with thee,
thou mighty man of valour.

And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord,
if the Lord be with us, why then is all
this befallen us? and where be all his
miracles which our fathers told us of,
saying, Did not the Lord bring us up
from Egypt? but now the Lord hath
forsaken us, and delivered us into
the hands of the Midianites.

And the Lord looked upon him, and said,
Go in this thy might, and thou shalt
save Israel from the hand of the
Midianites: have not I sent thee?”

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
