Life Lessons ~

Photo by Tima Miroshnichenko from Pexels

There are many lessons,
each day we can learn
when into our Bibles . . .
we daily, willingly turn.

For throughout the pages,
flow all the issues of this life
along with the instructions
on how to overcome our strife.

These teachings aren’t easy,
some of them are tough
but they’ll help us to get by
when the going gets rough.

They will direct and lead us,
onto the righteous way
if we closely follow
the words they have to say.

There are many lessons,
to be learned and taught
for when we are willing . . .
God will shape our thought!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 30:21

And thine ears shall hear
a word behind thee, saying,
This is the way, walk ye in it,
when ye turn to the right hand,
and when ye turn to the left.

God’s Ways Are Better ~

God’s ways are not ours,
for ours ways are skewed
and often God’s direction
we don’t want to include.

We think we understand,
what God wants us to do
but we fail to look at things
from His point of view.

God’s plans are not ours,
for ours are often rash
before consulting Him
out the door we dash.

We believe we can reason,
with our own reasoning
and to God’s instructions
we are not listening.

God’s ways and plans,
are always better . . .
when we follow them
to the letter!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:8-9

For my thoughts
are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways
my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are my ways
higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts.

While The Lord Is Still Near ~

Seek the Lord while He’s still near,
while His mercy can still be found
pray for Him to direct you . . .
while His Spirit is still around.

Give to the Lord your whole heart,
call on Him while you still can
appeal to Him to renew your faith
while He still hears the prayers of man.

Search the Lord while He is nearby,
ask Him to direct you His way
study the Word He has left you
while Light still shines on your day.

Call on the Lord while He’s still close,
ask Him to keep you from temptation
inquire that He shows you His will
while there’s still a way to salvation.

Seek the Lord while He’s still present,
for one day soon He won’t be near . . .
pray that you will heed His calling
while His grace and mercy are still here!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:6

“Seek ye the Lord
while he may be found, call

ye upon him while
he is near:”

~ Be Thou Faithful ~

Be thou faithful,
be ever patient
God is working
for your benefit.

For your times,
are in His hands
so be still and wait
till you know His plans.

Be thou hopeful,
be also trusting
God is working
in you something.

For your life,
is in His hold
so be at peace
as you He molds.

Be thou faithful,
be trustworthy too
while God is doing . . .
something new in you!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:13

For it is God which worketh
in you both to will and to do
of his good pleasure.

Return ~

Everywhere I look,
everywhere I turn . . .
Lord, I see the need
for so many to return.

Return from wandering,
from going astray
return back to . . .
the Life, Truth and Way.

Everywhere I step,
everywhere I go
Lord, I notice those
just going with the flow.

Flowing with the world,
conforming to its ways
following that wide path
leading from You away.

Lord, everywhere I look,
everything I see . . .
shows me all the hearts
needing to return to Thee!

~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 24:7

And I will give them an heart
to know me, that I am the Lord:
and they shall be my people,
and I will be their God:
for they shall return unto
me with their whole heart.

Spiritual Eyes ~

When you are given,
spiritual eyes . . .
you will keep them
on the prize.

For eyes focused,
on what isn’t clear
are eyes that know
Jesus’ return is near.

When you are given,
eyes that believe
true understanding
they will receive.

For eyes devoted,
to the Life and Way
are eyes to the Truth
always willing to stay.

When you have eyes,
spiritually discerning
to the world ways . . .
they’ll not be conforming!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 119:37

Turn away mine eyes
from beholding vanity;
and quicken thou me
in thy way.

Blessed Beyond Measure ~

I am blessed,
beyond measure
for God’s counsel
I do treasure.

I shun the world,
tolerate not its way
my heart it cannot
persuade or sway.

I keep no company,
with the ungodly
their sinfulness
I do not embody.

I delight in the truth,
I study and read
I trust God for every
single thing I need.

I am blessed,
beyond measurement
for I do not embrace . . .
the world’s temperament!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 1:1-3
Blessed is the man that walks
not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor stands in the way of sinners…

God, My Heart ~

God, my Heart,
my Life, my Soul
You have made me
complete and whole.

For You’ve given me,
a heart of flesh . . .
so my spirit with Yours
could interlock and mesh.

God, my Mind,
my Thought, my Conscience
Your Word has shown me
sin and its consequence.

For it’s active and piercing,
discerning and living
trains and equips me
to keep on daily striving.

God, my Heart,
I’m so glad You I found
for my mind is at peace . . .
knowing I’m heaven bound!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart
out of your flesh, and I will give
you an heart of flesh.

Romans 8.5-6

For they that are after the flesh
do mind the things of the flesh;
but they that are after the
Spirit the things of the Spirit.

For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded
is life and peace.

God, My Wisdom ~

God, my Wisdom,
my Thought, my Insight
Your Word to me
is like a floodlight.

For it illuminates,
the darkness of the day
shedding the Light of Hope
upon the narrow way.

God, my Wisdom,
my Rational, My Clarity
Your Spirit guides me
to live a life of purity.

For He gives discernment,
truth and understanding
leading me on the road
to life that is everlasting.

God, My Wisdom,
my Intellect, my Intel
You give me the data
on which I need to dwell!

~~~~~~~~~~

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;

That Worn Out Feeling ~

Feeling worn out,
more than just tired
as soon you rise up . . .
you again want to retire?

Well don’t you give up,
or sink into depression
instead look to God
for revitalization.

Feeling burned out,
stress got you down
does your world seem
to be spinning around?

Well don’t you give in,
to your crumbling situation
instead let Jesus become
your concrete foundation.

Feeling more than exhausted,
depleted and downcast
then onto Jesus . . .
all your weariness cast!

God, My Need~

God, my Need,
my Want, My Desire
let Your Spirit in me
urge and inspire.

Quench my thirst,
feed my inner hunger
give me an appetite . . .
to absorb Your wonder.

God my Longing,
my Yearning, my Passion
let me take in every ounce
of Your loving compassion.

Provide for me each day,
my spiritual bread
so by Your spirit  . . .
I’ll be constantly fed.

God, my Need,
My Dependence, my Reliance
may I always look to You
for counsel and guidance!

God’s Plans ~

Our plans,
are never the best
only God’s plans
bring eternal rest.

For our dreams,
when alone made
will like a flower
wither and fade.

Our wishes,
are never greater
only the desires
of our Creator.

For our hopes,
can’t compare
to God’s design
for our welfare.

Our plans,
we need to scrap
so the ones of God
into we can tap!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:8-9

For my thoughts
are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways
my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens
are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher
than your ways,
and my thoughts
than your thoughts.

Potholes ~

When potholes fill your path,
with their groves and ruts
and you feel that with each divot
you’re being hit right in the guts.

Take the time and slow down,
for God promises to lead us
and make our path a straight one
if over the bumps in Him we trust.

When chuckholes out number,
the smooth and even road
and the more of them you see
the heavier seems your load.

Know that God will guide you,
through and around each one
so just keep your eyes on
how the faithful race is won.

When the road ahead is bumpy,
and the going is jarring . . .
know that God is in control
if you let Him do the steering!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 26:7

The way of the just
is uprightness:
thou, most upright,
dost weigh the path
of the just.

If It Be Your Will Lord ~

God if this is Your will,
so let it be done . . .
if this is Your desire
I’ll do it for Your Son.

If this is how it’s to be,
let me not protest
if this is what You want
help me the truth to digest.

God if this is Your will,
so let it commence
if this is Your design
it’s done at Jesus’ expense.

If this is what You think,
will be the best for me
if this for me is Your plan
let me faithfully obey Thee.

God if this is Your will,
so let it be performed . . .
if this is what it takes for me
to be like Jesus transformed!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 3:18

But we all, with open face
beholding as in a glass the
glory of the Lord, are changed
into the same image from glory
to glory, even as by the
Spirit of the Lord.

Now Is The Time ~

Now is not the time,
to fold or to crumble
though the whole earth
has started to rumble.

Now is the time,
to hold on fast
to the truth and hope
that will out last.

Now is not the time,
to give up or abandon
and become to the world
a friend or companion.

Now is the time,
to be tough and strong
for the Word of God
will right all the wrong.

Now is not the time,
to cave in or to fold
for now is the time . . .
God wants us to be bold!

In whom we have boldness

Buckle Up ~

Buckle up,
if you want to be safe
make sure you’re secure
in the foundation of faith.

For you can bet on,
a long-bumpy ride
and you’re going to need
the truth by your side.

Buckle up,
if you want to stay
on the narrow . . .
straight, righteous way.

For your going to need,
to trust God’s direction
so you can travel on
the road to perfection.

Buckle up,
for there’s danger up ahead
and you need to make sure
you’re Holy Spirit lead!

~~~~~~~

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.

God Doesn’t Sleep ~

God doesn’t sleep,
nor catches forty-winks
His eyes are always open
they never even blink.

He’s constantly aware,
attentive and watchful
His attitude towards us
is so ever thoughtful.

God doesn’t snooze,
nor nap, like a cat
His eyes are upon us
wherever we are at.

His vision never clouds,
He sees things perfectly
He watches over us
with a gaze intensely.

God doesn’t sleep,
slumber He does not
forever He keeps us  . . .
in His every thought!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 15:3

The eyes of the Lord
are in every place,
beholding the evil
and the good.

Psalm 121:3-4

He will not suffer thy foot
to be moved: he that keepeth
thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth
Israel shall neither
slumber nor sleep.

Good Morning Quote ~07.21.20~

 

 


God, My Light ~

God, my Light,
my Beacon, my Ray
give me Your clarity
upon each new day.

Be my earthly guide,
help me to navigate
as I make my journey
into the narrow gate.

God, my Light,
my Lamp, my Beam
may Your Word be to me
a life-giving stream.

As I travel onward,
my every step direct
so I too can Your Love
in the darkness reflect.

God, my Light,
My Illuminator, my Reflector
help me be for You . . .
a Light Generator!

For ye were sometimes darkness,

Psalm 32:8


Perusing God’s Word~

Today I am perusing,
my Bible in my hand
with the intent . . .

I’m reading carefully,
what God has to say
with the intent . . .
to listen and obey.

Today I’m pouring over,
the verses on the page
with the intent . . .
their wisdom I’ll engage.

I’m studying each word,
looking up their meaning
with the intent . . .
my soul they’ll be feeding.

Today I’m perusing,
my Bible I am scouring
for God’s Word I know . . .
I need to be devouring!

Sticky Note to God ~07.05.20~

Proverbs 3:5-6


Heal Our Land Lord ~

Lord, this country . . .
is so in need of healing
before the day every knee
will be to You kneeling.

For the time will come,
when every one will confess
how they did or didn’t . . .
contribute to the mess.

Lord, we need to turn back,
our trust over to You
so You can restore our hearts
and our faith in You renew.

For the darkness now spreads,
across all the land . . .
and we need to return
our life’s into Your hand.

Lord, this country . . .
is so in need of restoration
every single soul needs
forgiveness unto salvation!

~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

Hope For The Best ~

I hope for the best,
a new day can bring
but, I am prepared for . . .
just about anything.

For I do not know,
what may come my way
tis why each morning
to God I bow and pray.

I hope for the greatest,
outcome He might send
but, I am braced for . . .
what’s around the bend.

For I trust and believe,
irrespective of . . .
whatever God decides
is out of His love.

I hope for the best,
the greatest day there is
but, I am ready for . . .
anything because I’m His!

He shall not be afraid

Oh, To Hear His Voice ~

Oh, to hear His voice in clarity,
confusion to come to cease
to rid our life of all anxiety
with the infusion of His peace.

To know His voice of wisdom,
all foolishness put to an end
to listen for His instructions
on life’s every path and bend.

To know His voice of counsel,
all bad advice to be banished
to oust the voice of darkness
until wickedness has vanished.

To know His voice of rest,
all fear brought to its knees
to drive out the enemy
and watch him as he flees.

To know His voice of truth,
all deception put to bed
to cast out satan’s trickery
so we can be Spirit lead.

Oh, to hear His voice in clarity,
is our Shepherd’s prayer
to rid our lives of anxiety . . .
so to find rest in His care!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 10:16

“And other sheep I have,
which are not of this fold:

them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice;

and there shall be one fold,
and one shepherd.”

I Walk By Faith ~

I walk by faith,
not by sight
because Jesus
is my light.

His Word my path,
illuminates
so His step
I can duplicate.

His Spirit dwells,
inside of me
so I can trust
what I can’t see.

His guidance helps,
me finally find
peace for both
heart and mind.

I walk by faith,
in His light
for I trust Jesus . . .
for my sight!

We All Have Earthly Woes ~

We all have earthly battles,
all our nerves get rattled
but we who have true faith . . .
don’t become by fear shackled.

We all have earthly trials,
all our hearts get hurt
but we who Jesus know . . .
from the Light don’t divert.

We all have earthly tests,
all our minds get confused
but we who have His Spirit
to His guidance don’t refuse.

We all have earthy woes,
all our souls get bewildered
but we who in God trust . . .
know we will be delivered.

We all have earthly cares,
all believers get dismayed
but we who have eternal hope . . .
from the truth aren’t dissuaded!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:3-5

And not only so, but we glory
in tribulations also: knowing
that tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience;
and experience, hope:

And hope maketh not ashamed;
because the love of God is
shed abroad in our hearts by
the Holy Ghost which is
given unto us.

Make My Way Straight Lord ~

Make my way straight Lord,
let not my feet stray
from the truth I know
let not my heart sway.

Let my mind not wander,
from the path I’m on
let me to Your ways
be faithfully drawn.

Make my way straight Lord,
let not my faith shift
from Your guidance
let not my trust drift.

Let my hope not waver,
from depending on You
let me heed Your direction
in everything I do.

Make my way straight Lord,
let me on You be dependent
in all of Your ways Lord
let me be obedient!

A Heart Searched By God ~

A heart searched by God,
feels the pain and sting
as He signals out
every sinful thing.

It weeps and it sobs,
begs for forgiveness
for it’s a heart aware
of its own wickedness.

A heart open to God,
sees its carnal self
how it puts importance
only on and in itself.

It sees the old man,
the prideful disgrace
it prays to God to give
a new heart in his place.

A heart searched by God,
turns from being stony
the day a heart of flesh
makes it meek and lowly!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 139:23-24

Search me, O God,
and know my heart:
try me, and know my thoughts:

And see if there be any wicked
way in me, and lead me in the
way everlasting.

2 Timothy 3:16

All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:

Life Is Like A Journey ~

Life is like a journey
into a vast wilderness
so often we get lost
due to our own willfulness.

But when we let God,
guide us with His Light
our pride and ego
we can wisely fight.

Life is like a journey,
into a dark abyss
so often we get stuck
and the mark we miss.

But when we trust God,
as our strength and shield
to sin and temptation
we won’t want to yield.

Life is like a journey,
into a wasteland sprawling
but we who know God . . .
into living water keep drawing!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 58:11

And the Lord shall guide thee continually,
and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make
fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a
watered garden, and like a spring of water,
whose waters fail not.
