Sticky Note From God ~11.03.18~

Crossroads~

Often at a crossroad,
we decide the way
we think we should go
before we even pray.

We trust our intuition,
so we make the choice
without listening to . . .
the Holy Spirit’s voice.

We start off down the path,
we thought was best for us
forgetting it’s God’s will
and not ours we should trust.

We grow more unsure,
with each step we take
until we start wishing
the choice we didn’t make.

So next time at a crossroad,
before you make a decision
pray first asking God to give  . . .
you guidance and wisdom!

~~~~~~~

James 1:5

“If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God,
that giveth to all
men liberally, and
upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him.”

Into His Holy, Glorious Light ~

 

May God strengthen you,
with the power of His might
until with the saints you enter
into His holy, glorious light.

May you have endurance,
to run the faithful race
may you have a heart full
of praise, joy and grace.

May you hold onto the faith,
with patience and endurance
may all you say and do
be done with temperance.

May your life always be,
to your Father pleasing
may knowledge from His Word
you always be gleaning.

May God strengthen you,
in works that are good and right
may your fruits bring others
into His holy, glorious light!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 1:10-12

“That ye might walk worthy
of the Lord unto all pleasing,
being fruitful in every good work,
and increasing in the knowledge of God;

Strengthened with all might,
according to his glorious power,
unto all patience and longsuffering
with joyfulness;

Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hath made us meet to be
partakers of the inheritance
of the saints in light:”

Walking Upright ~

Walking upright,
takes a lot of skill
but it’s easy . . .
if you know God’s will.

For in your heart,
God will speak
and the truth
you’ll want to seek.

Walking upright,
is not too hard
if you let God be
your shield and guard.

For He will show you,
His righteous way
and all things good
He’ll bring to your day.

Walking upright,
can surely be done . .
if you follow the steps
of God’s beloved Son!

~~~~~

Psalm 15:1-2

“Lord, who shall abide
in thy tabernacle? who shall
dwell in thy holy hill?

He that walketh uprightly,
and worketh righteousness,
and speaketh the truth
in his heart.”

Psalm 84:11

“For the Lord God is a sun
and shield: the Lord will
give grace and glory:
no good thing will he
withhold from them that
walk uprightly.”

We Better Know ~

 

If we’re to follow the Way,
the Truth we better know
and then the life of Jesus
in our own will begin to show.

If we’re to be His light,
the darkness we better hate
so we can guide others
straight to the narrow gate.

If we’re to have trust,
the Word of God we better read
so more of His lost sheep
back to their Shepherd we can lead.

If we’re to have hope and joy,
the world we better not be in
so more of the unsaved
can be turned from their sin.

If we’re to follow the Truth,
we better know the Way
for we never know . . .
whose life we may sway!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing
of your mind, that ye may prove what
is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

The Perfect Time Zone ~

God’s timing,
is always the best
on this fact
we can safely rest.

For His timing,
is not like our own
for His is in . . .
the perfect time zone.

God’s timing,
is never too early
His timetable
never gets murky.

For His timing,
is right up to the hour
there isn’t anything
not under His power.

God’s timing,
is perfectly set
on His time-frame
we can safely bet!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:30

As for God, his way is perfect:
the word of the Lord is tried:
he is a buckler to all those
that trust in him.”

2 Peter 3:8

“But, beloved, be not ignorant
of this one thing,
that one day is with the Lord
as a thousand years,
and a thousand years
as one day.”

Onward Press ~

Lord, today,
I must confess
it was truly
one big mess.

I bit the dust,
fell flat on my face
I couldn’t get up
if not for Your grace.

Lord, today,
I really blew it
failed to rely on
the Holy Spirit.

On my own,
I went off to fight
without relying
on Your might.

Lord, today,
was truly a mess
but I’m determined . . .
to onward press!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:14

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

to do Thy will
help me to be
patient and still.

Show me the way,
of the upright
give me wisdom
a holy insight.

Educate me Lord,
to know Your desire
help me to do
all You require.

Lead me along,
the path of goodness
help me to live
a life of pureness.

Teach me Lord,
the ways of Your will
with Your power
may my life You fill!

“Teach me to do thy will;
for thou art my God:
thy spirit is good;

of uprightness.”

Just Pick Up Your Bible ~

 

If you want by God,
to be taught . . .
just pick up that Bible
you once bought.

For, all you need to know,
is written on every page
if you would only . . .
open it up and engage.

If you need guidance,
on what you should do
pick up your Bible
it will lead you.

Every instruction,
for life that you need
is in your Bible
if it, you would read.

If you want God,
to guide and direct
pick up your Bible
and His Word digest!

~~~~~~~~

the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord

shouldest go.”

Good Night Lord ~

Good night Lord,
it’s been a pleasant day
walking along with You
on the narrow way.

Thank You for being with me,
for holding my hand
for lifting me up
when I thought I couldn’t stand.

Good night Lord,
this day was beautiful
the grace You gave me
was more than bountiful.

Thank You for blessing me,
with each daily provision
for keeping me always
right within Your vision.

Good night lord,
let’s do this again tomorrow
if from You another day . . .
will allow me to borrow!

~~~~~~~

“Yet the Lord will command
his lovingkindness in the
day time, and in the night

Sticky Note to God ~09.07.18~


Taking Up My Cross ~

First thing in the morning,
before I get out of bed
I take up my cross . . .
so by Jesus I can be lead.

For, when I pick it up,
it gives me the grace
to keep my arrogance
in its rightful place.

First thing in the morning,
I disrobe myself of pride
I lift up my cross
and let it be my guide.

For when I pick it up,
it gives me liberty
from vanity holding me
in conceit’s captivity.

First thing in the morning,
before I get up and get dressed
I take up my cross . . .
so with humility I’ll be blessed!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 9:23

“And he said to them all,
If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and
take up his cross daily,
and follow me.”

Don’t Be Shy ~

Don’t be shy,
don’t hesitate
your prayers to God
do resonate.

For whatever we ask,
God promises to hear
so get rid of your doubt
and over your fear.

Don’t be bashful,
don’t vacillate
your prayers to God
do captivate.

For whatever we need,
God promises to supply
so stop questioning Him
with if, but and why.

Don’t be shy,
don’t be timid
let your prayers
to God be lifted!

~~~~~~~

1 John 5:15

“And if we know that he hear us,
whatsoever we ask, we know that
we have the petitions that we
desired of him.”

Dependent of God ~

If on God we’re dependent,
we’ll want to know His will
before we go do this or that
we’ll gladly remain still.

We will pray for direction,
for guidance in all things
waiting until we receive
His reverent blessings.

If on God we’re to rely,
we’ll seek His holy counsel
whatever is not of His will
we will happily cancel.

We’ll need to understand,
His plans are not our own
once we see everything
is controlled from His throne.

If on God we’re dependent,
we’ll need to be submissive
to His will for our lives . . .
we must not be dismissive!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:15

“For that ye ought to say,
If the Lord will,
we shall live,
and do this, or that.”

Good Morning Quote ~08.30.18~


Daily Seeking God’s Face ~

Seeking God’s face,
leads to eternal life
forgiveness of sin
peace from all strife.

It leads to blessings,
His daily provisions
gives understanding
much needed protection.

Seeking God’s face,
leads to faith and hope
offers instructions
gives grace to cope.

It leads to wisdom,
ongoing strength and renewal
it causes rejoicing
overcomes upheaval.

Seeking God’s face,
each day is a must
for it provides
continual trust!

~~~~~

1 Chronicles 16:11

“Seek the Lord and his strength,
seek his face continually.”

Boundaries ~

God gave us boundaries,
to hem us to Him
so into temptation
we would not fall in.

He gave us the do’s
and the not to do’s too
so we’d not be fooled
by satan’s devious ruse.

God gave us boundaries,
of what we should know
He gave us limits
on the way we’re to go.

He gave us the shall’s,
and the shall not’s
to help us to control
our minds and thoughts.

God gave us boundaries,
right from the start
so that satan and sin
wouldn’t enter our heart!

~~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 2:16-17

“And the Lord God commanded the man,
saying, Of every tree of the garden
thou mayest freely eat:

But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil, thou shalt not
eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Sticky Note From God ~08.17.18~


Seek God While It’s Early ~

In the morning hours,
when all is quiet and still
seek God and you’ll find
what is for you His will.

Ask Him for the wisdom,
as you commence your day
and He will show you
the righteousness of His way.

In the early light,
when all is calm and silent
seek God with a heart
on Him trusting and reliant.

Ask Him to show you,
the plans He has for you
inquire of Him guidance
in all His has for you to do.

In the morning hours,
seek God while it’s still dawn
and throughout the day  . . .
you’ll find yourself Spirit drawn!

~~~~~~

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.”

Redeeming Today ~

Today I’m redeeming,
the time God’s allotted
I’ll use it wisely
so evil can be spotted.

I am going to walk,
so ever cautiously
my steps I will pan
very carefully.

Today I’m redeeming,
every hour of my day
I’ll be ready to face
whatever comes my way.

My armor I’ll have on,
into God’s Word I will slip
so that into temptation
I will not fall or trip.

Today I’m redeeming,
cashing in on God’s power
for I know the day is evil
and satan’s out to devour!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-16

“See then that ye walk circumspectly,
not as fools, but as wise,

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.”
