Silenced By Love ~

Silenced by love,
surrounded by calm
letting God be . . .
my healing balm.

Just me and Him,
together all alone
a quiet confidence
in the unknown.

Silenced by hope,
encircled in trust
examining our hearts
just the two of us.

Stilled meditations,
whispers at His feet
a time of joyfulness
when we both meet.

Silenced by love,
resting in peace . . .
letting God on me
His joy release!

~~~~~~~~

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord thy God in the midst
of thee is mighty; he will save,
he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love,
he will joy over thee with singing.

one of gratitude.

just like You . . .
so that I may live
a life pleasing too.

May my actions be,

to others contagious.

Lord, help me to act,
just like You . . .
for You’re the model
I need to look to!

God Loves The Yielding Heart ~

God loves the little sparrows,
all the flowers in the fields
He loves a repentant heart
that to Him at last yields.

He loves the morning hour,
when the sun is on the rise
He loves a searching heart
that is seeking to be wise.

God loves the daily warmth,
the cool breeze in the air
He loves the burdened heart
giving to Him all its care.

God loves the evening time,
when the sun slowly sets
He loves when a hungry heart
appetites in Him are whet.

God loves the moon shinning,
the twinkling in the sky
He loves a prayerful heart
that holds a jubilant cry.

God loves His little sparrows,
His faithful lilies of the field
He loves whatever the time . . .
hearts to Him relent and yield!

Jesus is waiting,
for you at the well  . . .
He wants you to sit
with Him for a spell.

He knows you’re thirsty,
for your soul, He is too
He wants to give you
life from another view.

Jesus is waiting,
for you to dip down in
the water that’s living . . .
and become one with Him.

He wants you to drink,
from His love and grace
so your life of sin
you’ll no longer embrace.

Jesus is sitting,
at the well He’s waiting . . .
to forgive you of the sin
on your soul weighing!

Jesus Is Enough ~

Jesus is enough,
there’s nothing you can do
Jesus is the only One
who can save you.

Jesus is enough,
He is above everything
Jesus is the one absolute
He is the sum of all things.

Jesus is enough,
no need to add or take away
Jesus is the only One
leading to the Life, Truth and Way.

Jesus is enough,
He is the One constant and true
Jesus grace is sufficient
there’s nothing more to pursue.

Jesus is enough,
everything else put aside
for no works of our labor . . .
can salvation provide!

The City of No Mores ~

In the City of No Mores,
is where I long to be . . .
oh, how I can hardly wait
until Jesus returns for me.

On the street of No More Tears.
we’ll never again weep or cry
for there will only be bliss
as every eye will be dry.

On the road of No More Pain,
we’ll be complete and whole
for we’ll have a new body
and a new glorified soul.

Down the path of No More Sin,
we will leap, jump and run
for our battle against satan
will be finally won.

On the way of No More Death,
there’ll be a jubilant parade
for from the devil evil-doings
we’ll never again be afraid.

In the City of No Mores,
is where we’ll spend eternity
and dwell in the mansion . . .
of No More Agony!

Are You Ready To Go ~

Are you ready to go,
with Jesus to the Cross
are you ready . . .
for that bridge to cross?

Are you ready to go,
and repent and confess
are you ready . . .
to be eternally blessed?

Are you ready to go,
deep within your heart
are you ready . . .
for a new life to start?

Are you ready to go,
into the depth of your soul
are you ready . . .
for Jesus to make you whole?

Are you ready to go,
can this bridge you get across
are you ready to be saved . . .
by the power of the Cross?

A Mind Focused In On Jesus ~

A mind focused,
in on Jesus . . .
is a heart rested
on forgiveness.

For it acknowledges,
it’s once fallen state
how Jesus saved it
from damnation’s fate.

A life centered,
on the cross
is a soul aware
it was once dross.

For it recognizes,
without the resurrection
there would be no hope
for eternal salvation.

A mind focused,
on their Savior
is a heart resting on
God’s mercy and favor!

I Long To Dwell ~

I long to dwell,
in eternal peace . . .
where fear and death
will forever cease.

Where things are seen,
through tearless eyes
where joyous shouts
are the only cries.

I long to dwell,
on the other side
where with God
believer’s reside.

Where sorrow stops,
as mourning ends
to spend eternity
with my forever Friend.

I long to dwell,
far from this place
where tears no longer
stream down our face!

~~~~~~~~~~

And God shall wipe away all tears

Jesus Opens Hearts ~

Jesus opens hearts,
and doors too . . .
He knows where to look
for you and you.

You cannot hide,
behind your wall
He knows your name
you’ll hear His call.

You may run,
but, He’s ahead of you
you may be unfaithful
but, His love is true.

You might wander,
and go astray
but, He will find you
again one day.

He will never, ever,
let you go
the way back to Him
He’ll gladly show.

For, He opens doors,
He’ll hear you knock
and when you return . . .
Jesus will be your Rock!

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!

When Today I See A Rainbow ~

When today I see a rainbow,
in the rainy, cloudy skies . . .
I have to ponder if it’s formed
from all of our tears and cries.

For, a rainbow can’t be seen,
unless the Son shines too
and I wonder if it holds . . .
God, surrendered hearts to You.

When today I see a rainbow,
I see a commitment once made
I have to ponder if it’s formed
of lost sheep that have strayed.

For, a rainbow can’t be seen,
unless the Son comes out too
and I wonder if it holds . . .
God, those coming back to You.

When today I see a rainbow,
I sit and I ponder . . .
the promise that God made
and I marvel at its wonder!

~~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 9:12-13

And God said, This is the token
of the covenant which I make

and it shall be for a token
of a covenant between me
and the earth.

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more lost sheep . . .

If the moral law,
they were to read
less wanderers . . .
they would breed.

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more unbelievers . . .
may heed their speech!

Perfect Vision~

Oh, if you had the insight,
that Jesus has today
you’d see how His death
prepared for all the way.

Then you’d understand,
the richness of His grace
how the steps of salvation
Jesus had to embrace.

Oh, to be enlightened,
to have the wisdom
to see through God’s eyes
with a perfect vision.

Then you’d see how glorious,
your inheritance will be
when the day in heaven
His magnificent you see.

Oh, to have eyes open,
hearts filled with His love
then all of us could spend
eternity with God above!

Working Your Way to Heaven ~

Some people they think,
because they are good
to heaven they’ll get . . .
as all nice people should.

They say their deeds,
are their sure way in
how their good acts
will atone their sin.

Some people they feel,
it’s up to them to obtain
their way into heaven
on a performance campaign.

Their credentials point to,
all of their good doings
and the actions of . . .
their own choosing.

But, Jesus I don’t believe,
there’s any acts we can do
to earn our salvation . . .
other than faith in You.

For it is by Your Life,
Your blood, grace and love
that we even can get . . .
to heaven above!

~~~~~~~

For by grace are ye saved

I see the battle that you fight . . .

I know your hurts are for real,
you cannot help how you feel
in the world you are despised
but you’re precious in God’s eyes.

In this world that takes and takes,
there’s no forgiveness for mistakes
if you believe and in God trust
in Jesus’s name you’ll be cussed.

We’re not perfect God knows this,
and the mark we’ll often miss
people can be so mean and cruel . . .
but, for Christ’s sake we’ll be a fool.

Our Lord Jesus saves us from,
the pounding beat of satan’s drum
for it is His wisdom that we seek . . .
tis why His Strong the world calls weak!

They come in the morning,
when new mercies fall
they sometimes just come
when on God’s name we call.

They come in the warmth,
they come in the gloom
they come in winter’s chill
or on summer’s bloom.

Blessings come great,
they too come small
and Jesus is the greatest . . .
blessing of them all!

I’ve Been Redeemed~

I’ve been liberated,
Jesus has set me free
He paid the penalty
the day He died for me.

I’ve been redeemed,
Jesus paid the ransom
to make room for me
in His Father’s mansion.

I’ve been rescued,
Jesus has delivered me
He paid the price
there upon Calvary’s tree.

I’ve been saved,
Jesus bought my freedom
one day with Him I’ll reside
in His Father’s kingdom.

I’ve been redeemed,
Jesus paid the deficit
so the hope of my salvation . . .
would be sure and definite!

Blessed be the God and Father

Sticky Note From God ~03.25.20~

2 Timothy 1:7


The Love Of God ~

The love of God,
has gotten me past
valleys too deep . . .
mountains so vast.

He help me over,
my fear and doubt
by my side He stayed
never walked out.

The love of God,
has brought me across
waters so high . . .
without being tossed.

He gave me hope,
my worries He stilled
with His ongoing peace
my heart was filled.

The love of God,
has gotten me through
things I thought . . .
were impossible to do!

~~~~~~~

Luke 1:37

For with God
nothing shall
be impossible.

Good Morning Quote ~03.24.20~


Without The Blood ~

 

Without Your blood,
Lord, we’d still be lost
without Your truth . . .
we’d still be dross.

Without Your grace,
we’d still be hopeless
without Your mercy . . .
we’d still be worthless.

Without Your atonement,
Lord, we’d still be doomed
without Your forgiveness . . .
we’d still by sin be consumed.

Without Your love,
we’d still be lifeless
without Your crucifixion
we’d still be helpless.

Lord, without Your blood,
we’d still be sinners
without Your sacrifice . . .
there’d be no crown winners!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 9:12

Neither by the blood of goats
and calves, but by his own blood
he entered in once into the
holy place, having obtained
eternal redemption for us.

James 1:12

Blessed is the man that
endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the
crown of life, which
the Lord hath promised
to them that love him.

His Light Bearers ~

Bible preachers, mercy teachers,
sharing with all the Good News
power keepers, soul reapers
doing our best to fill His shoes.

Love producers, peace makers,
helping those who are in need
trust imparters, faith informers
looking for His lost sheep to feed.

Hope distributors, calm givers,
paving the way with His light
God seekers, Jesus searchers
living the good and faithful fight.

Sin stoppers, temptation busters,
leading others from the gate of hell
truth tellers, one day heaven dwellers
with the greatest love story to tell.

Light bearers, problem sharers,
coming together in healing prayer
Bible holders, His soldiers
confessing Jesus because we dare!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:15

“That ye may be blameless
and harmless, the
sons of God,
without rebuke, in the midst of

a crooked and perverse nation,
among whom
ye shine as lights
in the world.”

Flighty Sparrow ~

Flighty sparrow,
flitting all about
why do you fly
on wings of doubt?

Don’t you know,
God loves you
with a love . . .
steadfast and true?

Flighty sparrow,
head in the clouds
why do you follow
ungodly crowds?

Don’t you believe,
God values you
how much He cares
about all you do?

Flighty sparrows,
flitting there and here
need God to ease . . .
all their earthy fear!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 10:31

Fear not, therefore;
you are of more value
than many sparrows.

The Gulf of Grief ~

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of this life
leaves us begging for relief.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove the heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

We thirst for healing waters,
for a peaceful resting place
where we can purge the pain
that’s too unbearable to face.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
only God can relieve . . .
the throbbing in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the heartbroken true relief!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Restless ~

Restless hearts,
are everywhere
burdened down
by all their care.

Worry lines spread,
across their face
etched with the need
to find God’s grace.

Restless souls,
are all around
fear and dread
keeps them bound.

Furrowed brows,
show their vexation
oh, how they need
to find salvation.

Restless people,
restless minds . . .
oh, how they need
Jesus to find!

~~~~~

Isaiah 57:20-21

But the wicked are like
the troubled sea,
when it cannot rest,
whose waters cast up
mire and dirt.

There is no peace,
saith my God,
to the wicked.

Faith Without Grace ~

Grace and faith,
a winning combination
for it is the key . . .
to eternal salvation.

You can’t have one,
with out the other
for faith without grace
your sins won’t cover.

Grace and faith,
are a reckoning source
when added together
they’re a powerful force.

For grace is the channel,
faith is the condition
without both of them
there is no redemption.

Grace and faith,
is the lone connection
and it comes from only . . .
one divine direction!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

The Cloud of Past Sin ~

When the cloud of past sin,
darkens up your way . . .
remember God wiped out
misdeeds of yesterday.

He remembers never more,
the wicked things once done
now He only sees you through
the grace of His Son.

When the cloud of former sin,
moves across your path . . .
remember you no longer
will have to face God’s wrath.

He forgets all about,
your former wickedness
now He only sees you through
the eyes of righteousness.

When the cloud of ancient sin,
starts to descend down upon you
remember God has blotted out . . .
your past from His eternal view!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 44:22

I have blotted out,
as a thick cloud,
thy transgressions,
and, as a cloud, thy sins:
return unto me;
for I have redeemed thee.

Grace Is An Infusion ~

Grace is an infusion,
of God’s love and mercy
it is given freely . . .
to all who are thirsty.

It cannot be bought,
borrowed or purchased
only by Jesus . . .
to you is it furnished.

Grace is an transfusion,
of Christ’s saving blood
it cleanses our souls
as it flows and floods.

It is a connection,
to everything just
it quickens the heart
in it’s power to trust.

Grace is a transfusion,
of hope, love and peace
grace is an infusion . . .
only Jesus can release!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

Whoso eateth my flesh,
and drinketh my blood,
hath eternal life;
and I will raise him
up at the last day.

Dying Breath ~

Don’t you wait,
till your last breath
turn to Jesus today . . .
before your death.

For He can give you,
a life worth living
once you discover
He is forgiving.

Don’t you wait,
til your death bed
turn to Jesus today . . .
before your dead.

For by His grace,
He will save you . . .
if you have the faith
to believe in Him too.

Don’t you wait,
til you have no more air
turn to Jesus now . . .
and your soul He’ll spare!

Perfect Purposeful Love ~

Perfect love,
drives out fear
it encourages
eyes not to tear.

It is mighty,
and purposeful
it is potent
and powerful.

Perfect love,
is immeasurable
it is genuine
and substantial.

It is resilient,
infinity reaching
it is faith . . .
mountain moving.

Perfect love,
is fear’s demise
for God’s power
it supplies!

~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;

God’s Enduring Love ~

Lord, Your enduring love,
my heart stills and hushes
I can feel my soul warm
as into it rushes.

It steadfastly releases,
a soothing, calming effect
as into my life
Your peace You direct.

Lord, Your enduring love,
my mind fully relieves
as tranquil thoughts of You
it opens up and receives.

It truly empties,
all things that I fear
as into my thoughts
it brings You more near.

Lord, Your enduring love,
is forever merciful . . .
straight from heaven above
keeping me to You vertical!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 136:26

Give thanks to the God
of heaven,

for his steadfast love
endures forever.

God’s Most Perfect Love ~

God’s most perfect love,
there is nothing better
to help us with our ties . . .
to the world to sever.

It takes our worst fears,
casts them away
fills us with confidence
for judgment day.

God’s most perfect love,
brings eternal elation
gives us the faultless joy
of everlasting salvation.

For without it we’d be,
bound straight for hell
where for all eternity
our souls would dwell.

God’s perfect love,
took away our punishment
renders us before Him . . .
blameless and innocent!

~~~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth
out fear: because fear hath
torment. He that feareth is
not made perfect in love.

When I Consider All God Made ~

Father, when I consider,
all Your fingers have made
how the sun slowly rises
as the moon begins to fade.

I’m in awe,
of the magnificence I see
in this amazing universe
You have set before me.

Father, when I consider,
the trillion stars in the sky
hanging on the dark backdrop
You placed so ever high.

I’m in awe,
of the works of Your hand
up above in the heavens
from down here where I stand.

Father, when I consider,
the stars, moon and the sun
I know beyond them . . .
is Your Kingdom yet to come.

I’m in awe,
of the splendor of my view
starlit glimpses of eternity
where I’ll be home with You!

~~~~~

“When I consider thy heavens
the work of thy fingers
the moon and the stars,
which thou hast ordained;”

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 . . .

~~~~~

Psalm 37:18

and their inheritance
shall be for ever.

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 valleys, the dales
were formed by Your will.

You clap out the thunder,

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!

What Will We Do ~

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

#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.
