Staying In This Boat ~

I’m staying in this boat,
I’m going with the flow
for Jesus will steer me
in the way I should go.

I will not be afraid,
I’ve nothing to fear
for in this boat with me
Jesus too is here.

I’m sticking with this ship,
perish I will not . . .
with Jesus at my side
I’ve no dread of thought.

I’m not going to sink,
my faith will keep me afloat
there’s no way I’ll go down
for Jesus controls this boat.

I’m keeping with this boat,
in it I’m going to stay
for I know the winds and sea
Jesus’ commands will obey!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:23-27

“And when he was entered into a ship,
his disciples followed him.

And, behold, there arose a great tempest
in the sea, insomuch that the ship was
covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and
rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.

But the men marvelled, saying,
What manner of man is this,
that even the winds and the sea obey him!

May I Soon Not Forget ~

Lord, may I not soon forget,
the favors You’ve granted me
nor how You made a path . . .
across my own Red Sea.

May my praises for You,
keep me humble all my days
may I not forget to walk
and follow all Your ways.

Lord, may I not complain,
nor forget Your mighty deeds
may I always acknowledge
it’s You who supplies my needs.

May my praise rise each day,
and lay upon my lips at night
may I not forget Your counsel
nor the pillars of Your light.

Lord, may I not forget,
the works of Your mighty hand
nor how a path for me . . .
You made to the promised land!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 106:13-14

“They soon forgat his works; they waited not
for his counsel: But lusted exceedingly in the
wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.”

Good Morning Quote ~01.13.19~


Putting On Mercy ~

Lord, help me to put on,
Your tender mercy
to all those who are
hungry and thirsty.

Help me to be kind,
to those who are needy
keep me always humble
not selfish and greedy.

Lord, help me to put on,
Your loving, forgiving heart
so when I am wronged
forgiveness I can impart.

Help me to be gracious,
give me Job like patience
to all who You send or bring
into my acquaintance.

Lord, help me to put on,
Your mercy every day
so for You I can lead . . .
others to the Truth and Way!

~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:12-13

“Put on therefore,
as the elect of God,
holy and beloved,
bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness,longsuffering;

Forbearing one another,
and forgiving one another,
if any man have a quarrel
against any: even as Christ
forgave you, so also do ye.”

James 5:11

” Behold, we count them happy which endure.
Ye have heard of the patience of Job,
and have seen the end of the Lord;
that the Lord is very pitiful,
and of tender mercy.”

Hello God ~

Hello God,
are You still there?
I’ve a burden
I need to share.

Greetings God,
did You get my call?
I know I’m not . . .
always on the ball.

Hi God,
am I on hold?
I promise to do
what I am told.

Hey God,
should I ask again?
Maybe I forgot to say
thank you and amen.

Hello God,
are You listening?
Ah, there You are . . .
quietly whispering!

Some Needed Changing ~

This year in my life,
they’ll be some rearranging
and I will let Jesus
do the needed changing.

I am going to give Him,
my heart to reshape
until faith and trust
is its only landscape.

This year in my life,
Jesus will be occupied
working on the things
keeping me preoccupied.

I’m going to give Him,
free access into my head
so nothing will keep me
from being Spirit lead.

This year in my life,
they’ll be some reshaping
but only if I let Jesus . . .
institute the changing!

~~~~~~~~~~

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

Before The Clock Strikes Twelve ~

Lord, before the night is over,
before the clock strikes twelve
before this year is gone
and needing to be shelved.

I pray for Your guidance,
into the new year ahead
so I may be assured
through it I’ll be Spirit lead.

Lord, as I put an end,
to the chapters of this year
I just want to thank You
for staying close and near.

So, I pray as the pages,
of another year unfold
You will continue to keep me
in Your everlasting hold.

Lord, before twelve strikes,
forcing a change of hands
I pray into the new year
to follow all Your plans!

~~~~~~~~

Hope For The Future ~

Hope for the future,
and for now and today
comes when God’s plans
we follow and obey.

Hope brimming with joy,
and of peacefulness
comes when we walk
a life of faithfulness.

Hope filled with trust,
and blessed assurance
comes when we live
a life full of pureness.

Hope heart stilling,
and mind calming
comes when into sin
we keep from falling.

Hope for the future,
is our hope for the day
for we know to follow . . .
the Life, Truth and Way!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts

you with all joy and peace
in believing, that ye may
abound in hope, through

God’s Timing Not Mine ~

I have found,
God’s timing’s the best
on this fact
I have come to rest.

For His plan is always,
the only perfect one
so I’ve learned to wait
until He is done.

I have found,
God not to ever push
so I know not to be
in a hurry or a rush.

For He has a hand,
on all He does
so I stay still . . .
simply because.

I have found,
God’s timing to be
perfectly fitting
and suitable just for me!

Draw Nigh Lord ~

Draw nigh Lord,
to those who are in need
for You in their lives
to guide and lead.

Come closer Lord,
to those calling out
for Your truth
instead of their doubt.

Move nearer Lord,
into the lives of those
needing their nerves
for You to compose.

Pull in Lord,
those who’ve gone astray
show them again
the Truth, Life and Way.

Drawn nigh Lord,
come close and near
pull those deeper into You
till they no longer fear!

Walking Wisely ~

 

Oh, Father I thank you,
today for Your grace
and the wisdom I need
for the world I’ll face.

For I know of the evil,
I will witness today
and walking wisely
must be my mainstay.

Oh, Father I thank you,
for Your constant guidance
as I strive for perfection
in a world filled with defiance.

For, I know the perversion,
that is going out there
for to its ungodliness
Your Word keeps me aware.

Oh, Father I thank you,
for the wisdom You give
for without it I don’t know . . .
how in this world I’d live!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-17

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

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what
the will of the Lord is.”

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 ~

is always the best

For His timing,
is not like our own

is never too early
His timetable
never gets murky.

For His timing,
is right up to the hour

not under His power.

is perfectly set
on His time-frame

that trust in him.”

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!

all You require.

a life of pureness.

the ways of Your will
with Your power
may my life You fill!

Good night Lord,
it’s been a pleasant day
walking along with You

the grace You gave me
was more than bountiful.
