No One Is Perfect ~

No one is perfect,
all have flaws
all need to obey
God’s ten laws.

All have sinned,
no one is undefiled
all need to be
by Jesus justified.

All have erred,
no one is pure
all need Jesus
their heart to cure.

All have wandered,
no one is yielding
all need Jesus
His Spirit’s sealing.

No one is perfect,
all have missed the mark
all would be without Jesus
left out in the dark!

~~~~~~

Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned,
and come short of the
glory of God;”

Needy People ~

Needy people,
are all around
not too hard
to be found.

Needing saving,
from addiction
needing Jesus
not rejection.

Needy people,
are everywhere
burdened down
by desperate care.

Needing hope,
from destitution
needing Jesus
not persecution.

Needy people,
needing God’s favor
the love and grace
of a risen Savior!

~~~~~~

Psalm 82:3-4

“Defend the poor and fatherless:
do justice to the afflicted
and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy:
rid them out of the hand of
the wicked.”

I Have A Vision ~

 

I have a vision,
of better days . . .
it’s full of glory
worship and praise.

I can see faces,
filled not with fear
eyes that no longer
hold a single tear.

I can see hearts,
flowing with grace
I can see saints
who braved the race.

I can see souls,
no longer in pain
I can see where death
has given up its reign.

I have a vision,
where all things are new
whenever heaven . . .
comes into my view!

~~~~~~~

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.”

Washed In The Blood ~

Jesus’ blood,
washed over me
now His love
has set me free.

Free from quilt,
free from blame
for, upon Himself
He took my shame.

Jesus’ blood,
flooded over me
flushing out sin’s
grit and debris.

At not a cost,
His grace I attained
now through faith
I’m no longer sin-stained.

Jesus’s blood,
washed over me
giving me a life . . .
now sin free!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 1:5-6

“And from Jesus Christ,
who is the faithful witness,
and the first begotten
of the dead, and the prince
of the kings of the earth.
Unto him that loved us,
and washed us from our
sins in his own blood,

And hath made us kings
and priests unto God
and his Father;
to him be glory
and dominion
for ever and ever.”
Amen.

Sheep Needing Feeding ~

The harvest is getting closer,
so many sheep need feeding
it’s time to go into the field
for so many are needing.

Needing to know God,
His mercy and favor
needing to find hope
the grace of a Savior.

Needing to be set free,
from satan’s deceit
needing the Gospel truth
about the judgment seat.

Needing the blood of Christ,
the Truth, Way and Life
needing to find freedom
from their sinful strife.

Harvest time is coming,
the sheep still need feeding
and it’s up to you and I . . .
to fulfill Jesus’ heeding!

~~~~~~~~

John 21.17

“He saith unto him the third time,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?
Peter was grieved because he said
unto him the third time,
Lovest thou me?
And he said unto him, Lord,
thou knowest all things;
thou knowest that I love thee.
Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”

Sticky Note From God ~09.02.18~


We All Need Jesus ~

 

We all need grace,
sufficient and amble
we need a full dose
not just a small sample.

We all need mercy,
tender and abundant
we need a taste of it
glorious and triumphant.

We all need compassion,
precious and priceless
we need an infusion
of God’s forgiveness.

We all need love,
eternal and everlasting
we need an injection
of peace that’s surpassing.

We all need Jesus,
each and every one of us
we need someone whom
with our soul we can trust!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help
in time of need.”

God Will Use You ~

God will use you,
to testify for Him
by causing your joy
to fill to the brim.

Then your faith,
will spill right over
bringing to Him
others much closer.

God will employ you,
to do His business
by causing your hope
to be a witness.

Then your trust,
in Jesus will flow
and others the Way
you will show.

God will use you,
any way He can
to bring the lost . . .
to the Son of Man!

Luke 19:10

” For the Son of man is come
to seek and to save that which
was lost.:”

A Warm Summer Day ~

Give me a warm summer day,
a cool breeze on my face
and I’ll tell you all about . . .
my Father’s mercy and grace.

For when I’m basking in,
the warmth of His love
I find myself engulfed
in His peace from above.

Give me a long lazy day,
with nothing else to do
and I’ll tell you just how
Jesus making all things new.

For when I’m just chilling,
His favor consumes me
and all I can think about
are the things I can’t see.

Give me a warm summer day,
far from the heat of things
and I’ll tell you all about . . .
the hope my Savior brings!

“Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth,

God’s Reach ~

There is not a life,
that God can’t save
there’s nothing done
that to Him is so grave.

There is not an eye,
that God can’t open
there’s none so blind
that He can’t put hope in.

There is not an ear,
that God can’t unseal
there’s none so deaf
that He can’t heal.

There is not a heart,
that God can’t affect
there’s none so cold
that He can’t connect.

There is not a soul,
that God’s can’t reach
there’s not a life . . .
that He can’t teach!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 59:1

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened,
that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy
that it cannot hear:”

Good Morning Quote ~08.23.18~


God’s Greater Purpose ~

God’s purpose is greater,
than this one of mine
for His intentions are . . .
of an eternal design.

God’s plans are smarter,
than the ones I make
for His concepts are . . .
for my soul’s own fate.

God’s ways are better,
than the ones I attempt
for His commands are . . .
righteously correct.

God’s directions are wiser,
than the ones I seek
for His instructions are . . .
to make me wise and meek.

God’s greater purpose,
I’ve come to believe . . .
for without His Son
grace I’d never receive!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:9

“Who hath saved us,
and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose
and grace, which was given us
in Christ Jesus before the world began,”

Open Your Eyes To Jesus ~

 

Open your eyes to Jesus,
look for His saving light
and He will give to you
a new a glorious sight.

Open your heart to Jesus,
give Him a home in your life
and He will upon Himself
take your cares and strife.

Open your mind to Jesus,
let Him show you the way
and He will graciously lead
you each and every day.

Open your ears to Jesus,
listen to the words He said
and He will make sure
to heaven you are led.

Open you eyes to Jesus
let Him enter into your soul
and your mind and heart . . .
the Holy Spirit will control!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18

“The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his
calling, and what the riches
of the glory of his inheritance
in the saints,”

Before God ~

One day before God,
you will give an account
as to why you shunned Him
and shut His Son out.

One day you will be,
to God accountable
and for your rebellion
be held responsible.

One day judgement’s seat,
you will have to face
and tell God why you rejected
His gift of love and grace.

One day Jesus.
will determine your fate
and open up to you the pit
and not the narrow gate.

One day before God,
you will bow . . .
one day Jesus’ name
you will avow!

~~~~~~~

Romans 14:11

“For it is written,
As I live, saith the Lord,
every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall
confess to God.”

I Knocked, Jesus Opened ~

I knocked,
He opened the door
then my life
Jesus began to explore.

I heard,
once Jesus was in
Him telling me
all about my sin.

I asked,
what I needed to do
Jesus answered
a holy life pursue.

I knew,
I needed His grace
by the reflection
I saw on Jesus’ face.

I sought,
a new life I found
and now by faith
I’m heaven bound!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:7

“Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”

The god Of This World ~

The god of this world,
blinds and darkens
the souls in this world
who to his lies hearkens.

He causes deaf ears,
hearts to be cold
he tells them the Bible
is a falsehood to behold.

He and his army,
are at war for God’s light
and to the bitter end
for it they will fight.

So they wager a battle,
with all that they can
by telling them Jesus . . .
was just a mere man.

The god of this world,
impairs the sight
of the souls in this world
so they cant see God’s light!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

” In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.”

Unrepentant ~

 

 

Unrepentant,
hearts not yielding
in sin they still
are abiding.

Unremorseful,
minds unfit
to their lusts
they commit.

Unashamed,
souls not saved
care not how
they behave.

Unabashed,
darkness driven
see no need
to be forgiven.

Unrepentant,
need not be
if they’d only let . . .
Jesus set them free!

~~~~~

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

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:

Unclean Things ~

Unclean things,
evil thrills
follow own
not God’s will.

Need saving,
God’s pity
mercy, grace
& charity.

Unclean things,
scarred and bruised
their own souls
they’ve abused.

Lust and greed,
earthy pride
rags of filth
they can’t hide.

Like a leaf,
blown away
from the Truth
they still stray.

Unclean things,
made snow-white
if they could only
see the Light!

~~~~

Isaiah 64:6

“But we are all as an unclean thing,
and all our righteousnesses are as
filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf;
and our iniquities, like the wind,
have taken us away.”

God Has His Best For You ~

God knows your needs,
He sees your desires
He knows when fear
inflames doubt’s fires.

God understands,
the conditions you’re under
He hears your thirst
He knows of your hunger.

God hears your pleas,
He listens to your cries
He knows you have
some unanswered why’s.

God understands,
the situation you’re in
He knows you need
to hear back from Him.

God has your best,
interests at heart
so wait and be still
until them He imparts!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:19

“But my God shall supply
all your need according
to his riches in glory
by Christ Jesus.”

Lost With Jesus ~

Lost in thought,
the Lord and me
so looking forward
to what I can’t see.

Knowing the peace,
passing understanding
keeps me for Him
eagerly awaiting.

Lost in reminiscing,
days without hope
wondering how
I ever did cope.

Thankful and grateful,
each and every day
my Father hears me
when ever I pray.

Lost in thought,
Jesus and me  . . .
oh, how behind closed doors
with Him, I love to be!

~~~~~~

Matthew 6:6

“But thou, when thou prayest,
enter into thy closet,
and when thou hast shut
thy door, pray to thy
Father which is in secret;
and thy Father which seeth
in secret shall reward thee openly.”

Night Sky ~

When I look out,
on the sky at night
I stand gaping . . .
at the starry sight.

I recall the days,
when I was young
and the many wishes
on them I made upon.

But, now when I see,
their starry twinkling
they have me on . . .
eternal life thinking.

Instead of wishing,
for things worldly
now my prayer is to see
gates white and pearly.

When I look out,
on the starry night
now I see my name
twinkling in their light!

~~~~~~

Psalm 147:4

“He telleth the number of the stars;
he calleth them all by their names.”

A Merciful Heart ~

Lord, give me a heart merciful,
tender, ready to forgive
give me a heart of kindness
not one testy and combative.

Let it be a heart of compassion,
filled with Your loving grace
Lord, give me a heart lenient
as Yours is for the human race.

Lord, give me a heart merciful,
overflowing with Your goodness
give me a heart sympathetic
not one cold, bitter or ruthless.

Let it be a heart of empathy,
where pardon makes its home
Lord, give me a heart benevolent
like Yours is from Your throne.

Lord, give me a heart merciful,
one that’s animosity free
give me a heart forgiving
just like Yours is towards me!

~~~~~~~~

James 2:13

“For he shall have judgment
without mercy, that hath
shewed no mercy;
and mercy rejoiceth
against judgment.”
