I’m So Glad I Found Jesus ~

Through life’s many trials,
and all its tribulations
I’m so glad I found . . .
the Life of salvation.

For my life was a battle,
I could never win
without Jesus telling me
go no more and sin.

Through life’s journey,
and all its ups and downs
I’m so glad I found . . .
the Way to get around.

For the road I was on,
was full of so much strife
until Jesus showed me
the Truth to eternal life.

Through life’s many trials,
constant failures and tests . . .
I’m so thankful the Light
lead me to find God’s rest!

~~~~~~

John 8:11

She said, No man, Lord.
And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more.

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.

Worry Ends ~

Worry ends,
when faith kicks in
it withdraws
to our trust within.

For when in God,
peace we find
worry can’t play
with our mind.

Fear ceases,
where love exists
doubt dissolves
where hope persists.

For when in Jesus,
our faith we place
our fears will flee
in the sight of grace.

Worry and fear,
are forced out
when to the Lord
we give our doubt!

~~~~~~

Psalm 34:4

I sought the Lord,
and he heard me,
and delivered me
from all my fears.

Abba Our Father ~

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I could be . . .

An heir to salvation,
a daughter of light
a child that brings
to Him great delight.

No longer an orphan,
no longer a stray
I’ve inherited a room
in His mansion I’ll stay.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I can be free . . .

Free from the guilt,
of my wandering ways
free from the darkness
that once filled my days.

The adoption became final,
that day on the Cross
when Jesus died for me
and all those who are lost.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I might see . . .

See His glory,
in the midst of my pain
see His grace fall
like sweet drops of rain.

The inheritance is mine,
I’m claiming my right
and now I have privilege
to His power and might.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family,
I willingly flee . . .

~~~~~

and their inheritance

It’s All Yours Lord ~

It’s all Yours Lord,
the sky, the sea
the heaven, the earth
all belong to Thee.

You dampen the clouds,
bring the shine of the sun
only You in Your wisdom
can the universe run.

Lord, You alone created,
the mountain, the hills
the valleys, the dales
were formed by Your will.

You clap out the thunder,
the lighting You streak
You make the wave roar
put the stillness in a creak.

It’s all Yours Lord,
the earth and all related
by just Your command . . .
were made and created!

~~~~~~~~~~

O Lord, how manifold are thy works!

Sticky Note to God ~01.06.20~


What Will We Do ~

Another year is upon us,
what with it will we do . . .
how are we going to let
the love of Jesus through?

How are we going to be,
the salt and the light
how are we going to win
this good and faithful fight?

How will we show the Way,
to the Life everlasting
how will we act when others
stones at us our casting?

How are we going to live,
in a world full of evil
how will we break through
the chains of the devil?

Another year is upon us,
what with it will we do . . .
Lord, how can we bring hope
if we don’t have any too!

of all that you fear.

#throwbackpoem# Recipe For A Happy New Year

Take a cup of Forgiveness,
stir in some of God’s grace
then fold it into your heart
and this recipe you’ll embrace.

But, you’ll need to keep adding,
more ingredients as you go
if you plan on having a year
where Love can rise and grow.

You’re going to need Patience,
at least a cup or two . . .
if you want to have Meekness
bubbling up inside of you.

You’ll need to slowly blend in,
a heaping spoonful of Goodness
then beat it into the mixture
so you can whip up Gentleness.

Don’t forget to add a pinch of Joy,
and as you whisk it into Peace
add a dollop of Faith and Trust
and Hope you will release.

If you live in the Spirit,
you’ll need to walk in it too . . .
and if you follow this recipe
it’ll produce His fruit in you!

~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23 

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law.

Looking Unto Jesus ~

As troubles come,
as they most surely will
when the road ahead of you
looks all up hill.

When you are at a loss,
as to what to do
and you’ve no answers
not even a clue.

Look unto Jesus,
He knows how high the climb
He’ll help you over it
in His perfect time.

As hardships come,
as they seem to do
when they start to get
the very best of you.

When the pit you’re in,
is beyond waist deep
and all your cares
make you want to weep.

Look unto Jesus,
He will never let you sink
He is not as far away
as you may think.

As burdens come,
as they begin to occur
and in your mind
everything’s a big blur.

When nothing seems,
to make much sense
and you start to feel
nervous and tense.

Look unto Jesus,
He’ll give to you a new sight
and you’ll start to see . . .
everything through His light!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before
him endured the cross, despising the
shame, and is set down at the right
hand of the throne of God.

Worthy ~

Sometimes we don’t feel,
we are worthy of . . .
God’s mercy and favor
let alone His gift of love.

But, that is just a lie,
satan likes to tell . . .
for he wants to drag us
straight with him into hell.

Sometimes we don’t feel,
we are deserving of . . .
Jesus’ saving grace
let alone His undying love.

But, that is just the devil,
trying to get into us . . .
for, he is out to destroy
in God our faith and trust.

Sometimes satan will,
unsettle us with worry
but, we must believe . . .
to God we are worthy!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 6:11

And such were some of you:
but ye are washed, but ye
are sanctified, but ye are
justified in the name of
the Lord Jesus, and by the
Spirit of our God.

2 Corinthians 11:3

But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty,
so your minds should be
corrupted from the
simplicity that is in Christ.

Joy Entered The World ~

Joy entered the world,
Truth found its way in
Grace penetrated through
all barrier’s of sin.

Love came down from heaven,
a Father’s Gift revealed
Light infiltrated into hearts
by His stripes they’re now healed.

The Way emergencies,
Jesse’s Branch shoots forth
a Savior materializes
out of a Virgin’s birth.

Peace broke though,
Flesh took on form
God’s Mercy establishes
Salvation’s only platform.

Hope descended,
God’s Favor comes to Rest
Eternal Life in His Son
finally manifests.

Joy entered the world,
a Messiah to all is born
tis why we celebrate  . . .
on this CHRISTmas morn!

~~~~~~~

John 1:14

And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld his glory, the glory
as of the only begotten

Tis The Night Before ~

Tis the night before,
a virgin’s birth
of a Savior born
right here on earth.

Beloved and begotten,
God’s only Son . . .
brings hope and salvation
for each and everyone.

Tis the night before,
a glorious new day
when the Life and Truth
came to show the Way.

A Gift straight from God,
full of love and grace
a Messiah, a King
for all the human race.

Tis the night before,
the birth of our Savior
God’s ultimate proof . . .
of His mercy and favor!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:6-7

And so it was, that,
while they were there,
the days were accomplished
that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger; because there
was no room for them in the inn.

The Pain of Everyone ~

If I could gather up,
the pain of everyone
all of their suffering
I would pray undone.

I would ask God to mend,
the sorrow and brokenness
to fill each grieving heart
with the joy of hopefulness.

If I could gather up,
everyone’s fallen tears
along with their grief
and all of their fears.

I would ask God to heal,
the despair and anguish
so that in His love
all could forever languish.

If I could gather up,
all the hurt, grief and pain
I would beg Jesus . . .
hurry up and come to reign!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall
be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be
any more pain: for the former things
are passed away.

Santa’s List ~

It’s not santa’s list,
I am concerned about
for he doesn’t hold
with me any clout.

I’m more mindful,
with my name being
listed in the book
God is keeping.

It’s not santa checking,
if I’m nice or naughty
for he is regardless . . .
always happy and jolly.

I’m more concerned with,
any sin I’ve got hidden
so I can repent now . . .
and for them be forgiven.

I don’t really care,
what santa may think
for I know God . . .
at sin doesn’t wink!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 20:15

And whosoever was not found
written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire.

Acts 17:30

And the times of this ignorance
God winked at; but now commandeth
all men every where to repent:

May You Know God’s Fullness ~

May you know the glory,
of God’s richness
may to His power
you be made a witness.

May Christ abide in you,
in faith may you find
His strength that guards
both the heart and mind.

May you be anchored,
in His love entrenched
may your soul to Jesus
remain always clenched.

May you know Jesus’ love,
the vast expanse of it
may your inner man
be filled with His Spirit.

May you be filled fully,
with all of God’s fullness
may you find the wisdom
in knowing His goodness!

~~~~~

Ephesians 3:16-19

That he would grant you,
according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might by
his Spirit in the inner man;

That Christ may dwell in your
hearts by faith; that ye,
being rooted and grounded in love,

May be able to comprehend with all
saints what is the breadth,
and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge, that
ye might be filled with all
the fulness of God.

Focused On Jesus ~

Lord, keep me focused,
keep my heart You centered
for this is the season  . . .
into the world You entered.

Help me to share,
the joys of my salvation
and to not take part in . . .
the festivities agitation.

Lord, keep me devoted,
keep my heart dedicated
for this is the season . . .
in which You’re celebrated.

Help me to express,
the hope I found in You
and not be discouraged
by others point of view.

Lord, keep me focused,
on the reason for the holiday
help me spread Your light
on the Life, Truth and Way!

a time to find
peaceful rest.

A time for joy,
and to sing
about the birth
of our King.

A time for peace,
and for praise
a time for hope
found in His ways.

A time to rejoice,
and to savor
the love and grace
of our Savior.

A time to give,
and to receive
a time to show
why we believe!

Lay Your Treasure ~

Put no value in the things,
living in this world brings
for they will only just corrupt
and in the end self-destruct.

Lay instead your treasure,
in things you cannot measure
things like faith, hope and trust
for they’ll never turn into rust.

Put no worth in material things,
things like cars and diamond rings
for that which we now hold dear
will one day all just disappear.

Lay up instead things eternal,
and the things that are internal
things like morality and integrity
against which there is no penalty.

Put no value on worldly things,
instead lay in your heart of heart
the things that will in the end . . . .
not corrode, rot or fall apart!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through
and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

My Times Are In Thine Hands ~

My times are in Thine hands,

My times are in Thine hands,
I give them all to You
my days
my nights
my every tomorrow
are Yours to do what You must do.

My times are in Thine hands,
in all that I do and say
my thoughts
my aspirations
my deepest desires
are Yours to do what You may.

My times are in Thine hands,
to mold as You seem right
my love
my faith
my total trust
are Yours to do as You might.

My times are in Thine hands,
dear Lord, I want them there
my heart
my mind
my soul’s design
are Yours to trim and pare!

Just The Cross ~

Give me just the cross,
and I’ll have all I need
for at the foot of it . . .

Nothing else matters,

for no other love
is there greater.

Give me just Jesus,
the blood of Calvary
let me keep focused
on His eternal victory.

When I look in my eyes,
all I want to see . . .
is Christ and the cross
looking back at me.

Give me just the cross,
Jesus and the blood

I know I’m truly loved!
