The Way of the Upright ~

Teach me Lord,
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!

of uprightness.”

Sticky Note From God ~09.16.18~


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!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 48.17

“Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer,
the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord
thy God which teacheth thee to profit,
which leadeth thee by the way that thou
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!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 42:8

“Yet the Lord will command
his lovingkindness in the
day time, and in the night
his song shall be with me,
and my prayer unto the
God of my life.”

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.”

Sticky Note to God ~08.14.18


God’s Preparing The Way ~

God’s working everyday,
in the believer’s life
every experience
be it victory or strife.

He has a purpose,
behind all He exercises
He warns and corrects us
so our sin will recognize.

God tests where we’ll put,
our faith and trust
so He sends us trials
to see how we’ll adjust.

He has a reason,
for the storms that blow
and He wants to see
where we’ll choose to go.

God is preparing us,
working in us each day
for our future glory . . .
He is purifying the way!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:11

“In whom also we have obtained
an inheritance, being
predestinated according to
the purpose of him who worketh
all things after the counsel
of his own will:

The Hand of God ~

Sometimes my heart,
seems to just melt
when upon it . . .
the hand of God is felt.

His love for me,
defrosts the icy parts
as mercy and grace
into it He imparts.

Some times my mind,
just simply evaporates
when in it . . .
the hand of God penetrates.

The hope He has for me,
keeps me before Him humble
causing my pride an ego
to dissolve into a puddle.

Sometimes my heart,
and my mind liquidate . . .
when the hand of God
on them permeate!

~~~~~

1 Peter 5.6

“Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:

It’s No Snap ~

It isn’t easy,
this being strong
it’s really hard
when all’s going wrong.

It isn’t a snap,
this having courage
it’s difficult
not getting discouraged.

It isn’t comfortable,
this waiting and waiting
it’s laborious
to keep from fainting.

It isn’t painless,
this being perfectly still
it’s grueling
finding out God’s will.

But those who take heart,
to God’s timing
on eagle’s wings
you’ll find soaring!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:14

“Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait,
I say, on the Lord.”

Spirit Of God ~

Spirit of God,
mighty and holy
teach us to live
for You wholly.

Bring to us,
power and might
let us be
for You a light.

Spirit of God,
lead and guide
teach us how
we can abide.

Help us to remain,
on the narrow way
to the left or right
help us not to stray.

Spirit of God,
rest upon us
with holy fear
may You we trust!

~~~~~

Isaiah 11:2

“And the spirit
of the Lord shall
rest upon him,
the spirit of wisdom
and understanding,
the spirit of counsel
and might,
the spirit of knowledge
and of the fear
of the Lord;”

Pedal to the Metal ~

Sometimes God puts,
the pedal to the metal
He wants to see if we have
the fortitude or the mettle.

So He sends us situations,
to see how we’ll react
testing to see whether
our faith will stay intact.

Sometimes God puts,
speed traps in our day
to see if we’ll race off
or stay on the narrow way.

So He sends us warnings,
to see if Him we’ll obey
or if we’ll race by them
and not do as they say.

Sometimes God puts,
the pedal to the metal . . .
and sends to us obstacles
to see just where we’ll settle!

~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:12

“Beloved, think it not strange
concerning the fiery trial
which is to try you,
as though some strange
thing happened unto you:”

Afternoon Ponderings~07.24.18~


Look Not ~

 

Look not to the past,
don’t stop and turn your head
instead look to the future
with Jesus up ahead.

Don’t reminisce,
on that which is already done
rather let your heart
to Jesus be eternally drawn.

Look not to the past,
remember not your regrets
instead look to the future
and the soon coming events.

Don’t agonize,
over what once gave you pleasure
rather let your mind
dwell on your heavenly treasure.

Look not to the past,
don’t look to where you’ve been
instead look onto the cross . . .
and the washing of your sin!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13-14

“Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things
which are behind,
and reaching forth unto
those things which are before,

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

Jesus Prays For Us ~

When my words,
I cannot form
and to God my pleas
I cannot inform.

That’s when Jesus,
steps right in
with moans coming
from deep within.

When I can’t even,
begin to pray
all though I have
a lot to say.

That’s when Jesus,
for me advocates
and my prayers to God
He formulates.

When my words,
can’t form my needs
that’s when Jesus . . .
for me intercedes!
