Sticky Note to God ~06.30.21~

Psalm 34:18


Despisers Of Truth ~

You can talk until,
you’re blue in the face
but, some don’t want
to hear about grace.

You can tell them about,
God and His mercy and love
but, they still won’t believe
in His kingdom above.

You can speak your mind,
all that you want
but, their transgressions
will not their soul’s haunt.

You can tell them Jesus,
died for their sin
but, their lives they won’t
ever give over to Him.

You can talk until,
your face turns blue . . .
but, for some Jesus we know
will still despise You!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 13:41

Behold, ye despisers, and wonder,
and perish: for I work a work in
your days, a work which ye shall
in no wise believe, though a
man declare it unto you.

Oh, To Discover God ~

Oh, to discover,
the riches of wisdom
is to have a life
with God in rhythm.

To seek and to find,
the meaning of grace
is to have your soul
His mercy embrace.

Oh, to be a searcher,
of God’s counsel
is to have a heart
quiet and peaceful.

To find the direction,
in which you should go
is to have a mind
ready for Him to show.

Oh, to really discover,
what God is all about . . .
is to trust in Him . . .
without having any doubt!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 11:33

O the depth of the riches
both of the wisdom and
knowledge of God!
how unsearchable are
his judgments, and his
ways past finding out!

Lord, I love You ~

Lord have I told You lately,
just how much I love You . . .
have I expressed my gratitude
for all, for me You do?

Have I sung to You my praise,
for Your mercy and Your grace
have I told you I can’t wait
till I can thank You face to face?

Lord have I stressed to You,
the faith in You I have found
have I said I appreciate You
for keeping my heart sound?

Have I expressed You keep me,
pressing on each new day
have I told You how delighted
You’re my Light, Truth and Way?

Lord if I have neglected,
telling You these things lately
I want to make it clear right now
it’s how I feel about You daily!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:19

We love him,
because he

Good Morning Quote ~05.23.21~


Working Out My Salvation ~

Lord, may I continue,
to act on and work out
my salvation until . . .
I’ve not one ounce of doubt.

No doubt You won’t do,
in my life Your good pleasure
so I may discover
Your mercy is without measure.

Lord may I remain,
in Your Word submersed
until I’m completely
schooled and well versed.

Versed in Your love and grace,
the daily care for my soul
so that Your will for my life
will keep me in control.

Lord, may I with holy fear,
use care and due diligence
to work out my salvation . . .
with a trembling willingness!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:12-13

Wherefore, my beloved,
as ye have always obeyed,
not as in my presence only,
but now much more in my
absence, work out your own
salvation with fear and trembling.

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

Proverbs 28:13 


God’s Hand Of Faithfulness ~

God’s hand of faithfulness,
can be seen in my life
though the times of rest
and those full of strife.

He held on to me,
with His merciful hand
as He revealed to me
what was for me His plan.

God’s hand of faithfulness,
led and guided me
through the days of peace
and those angry as a sea.

He wrote my name,
on His palm He inscribed
His promise to me
to always be at my side.

God’s hand of faithfulness,
has always been loyal
through the good times
throughout all my trials!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:6

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

Isaiah 49:16

Behold, I have graven thee
upon the palms of my hands;
thy walls are continually before me.

The Depth of God’s Mercy ~

When I am knee high,
in grief and sorrow
when I am anxious
about each tomorrow.

I look at the span,
of God’s mercy . . .
instead of the extent
of my worry.

When I am waist deep,
in the vast unknown
when fear’s grip
clinches my backbone

I look to the depth,
of God’s grace . . .
instead of the expanse
of the dark space.

When I am as low,
as I can possibly go . . .
I look to the favor
God on me bestows!

~~~~~

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.

1 John 1:9


Good Morning Quote ~03.10.21~


A Taste Of God ~

I have had a taste of God,
and all of His goodness
I have sipped from His cup
of truth and righteousness.

It left me with no appetite,
for the world or its ways
it has given me hope . . .
for peaceful, joyful days.

I have had a taste of God,
His kindness I now savor
for I have found in Him
my Lord and my Savior.

It left me with no craving,
for the world and its lust
it has given me the faith . . .
to put in Him my trust.

I have had a taste of God,
now my thirst is fully satisfied
my hunger pains are no more
once my heart, Jesus occupied!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 34:8

O taste and see
that the Lord is good:
blessed is the man
that trusteth in him.

Faith Springs Forth ~

Faith springs from the heart,
as mercy falls from above
the earth becomes enriched
by the grace of Jesus’ love.

Hope dwells internally,
the seed has been planted
all who willing come to Jesus
eternal salvation is granted.

Truth descends from heaven,
peace to earth Jesus brings
the world opens up its arm
to receive its King of Kings.

Righteousness sprinkles down,
on a land parched and dry
the God of all creation hears
His creature’s thirsty cry.

Faithfulness springs forward,
the earth receives a new start
mercy and truth have kissed . . .
warming the coldest of hearts!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 85.10-12

Mercy and truth are met
together; righteousness
and peace have kissed
each other.

Truth shall spring out
of the earth; and
righteousness shall
look down from heaven.

Yea, the Lord shall give
that which is good; and
our land shall yield
her increase.

Oh, Lord Be Good To Me ~

Oh, Lord be good to me,
for I do seek You . .
and I will always wait
for Your guidance too.

I will keep Your Word,
follow it all my days
for it leads to the path
of Your righteous ways.

Oh. Lord be good to me,
for I do call on You
I will always seek
after Your mercy too.

I will with all my heart,
my mind and my soul
look to Your Word
as my hope and counsel.

Oh, Lord be good to me,
for I do love You . . .
bless my soul Oh, Lord
so I may bless Yours too!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 119:2

Blessed are those who keep
his testimonies, who seek him
with their whole heart,

Lamentations 3:25

The Lord is good to those
who wait for him, to the
soul who seeks him.

From Despair To Hope ~

From despair to hope,
from misery to ecstasy
are those who Jesus . . .
makes not their enemy.

For they’ve tasted mercy,
the truth they have kissed
His peaceful righteousness
they have not dismissed.

From dismay to trust,
from heartbreak to relief
are those who though faith
now have a grace belief.

For though they’re fraught,
troubled and stressed
they know just how much
they are truly blessed.

From desperation to hope,
from emptiness to rapture . . .
are the hearts and souls
Jesus has captured!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:8

We are troubled
on every side,
yet not distressed;
we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted,
but not forsaken;
cast down,
but not destroyed;

Always bearing about
in the body the dying
of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus
might be made manifest
in our body.

Psalm 85:10

Mercy and truth
are met together;
righteousness and peace
have kissed each other.

God’s Gift of Jesus ~

A Child, a Babe,
today is born
the Son of Man

of the great I AM.

A Carpenter, a King,
brings Good Cheer . . .
of His Kingdom
soon coming here.

Our Counselor, Our Rock,
our Father Everlasting
long ago Wise Men
were heard forecasting.

A Child is born,
God’s gift to you and I
for the Morning Star
has risen in the sky!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6

to us a son is given;
and the government

Mighty God, Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.

God’s Gift Of Life ~

God’s gift of Life,
paving the Way
so for our sins
we not have to pay.

For His Word arrived,
on CHRISTmas morn
when to a virgin
His Son was born.

God’s gift of Life,
the True foundation
our Cornerstone
to eternal salvation.

For God sent His Son,
to love and forgive
so with Him in heaven
we can forever live.

God’s gift of Life,
is ours this day . . .
for the Truth came down
to show us the Way!

~~~~~~~~~~

For the wages of sin
is death;

God Guides My Feet ~

God guides my feet,
over mountain tops
onto high ground . . .
in faith, they do hop.

He leads my steps,
through jagged spaces
to prove to me . . .
significant is His grace.

He shines His light,
ahead of my steps
my soles He secures . . .
His love they project.

He takes me to places,
never before explored
to show me why it is . . .
I call Him my Lord.

He sets me up high,
gives me a glorious view
so His mercy my soul . . .
He can restore and renew!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:33

He makes my feet
like the feet of deer,
And sets me on
my high places.

Today I am thankful,
for my daily bread
for the Holy Spirit
by whom I am lead.

For the abundance,
of faith and grace
for Jesus’ strength
to stay in the race.

Today I am grateful,
to my Father above
for His tender mercy
His wondrous love.

For His Goodness,
all He provides
for the power
He daily supplies.

Lord, today I’m thankful,
oh, so grateful too . . .
for all You bless me with
for all ~ for me You do!

all they that do his
commandments:
his praise endureth for ever.

If You Will Seek ~

Photo by Patricia McCarty from Pexels

If to God you draw near,
He will hear your cry
if you confess your sins
your heart He’ll purify.

If you will seek His face,
He will hear your prayer
if you call on His name
your life He will repair.

If you return to God,
you will be restored
if with your whole heart
make Him again your Lord.

If you seek His presence,
His mercy will be found . . .
if your idols you’d remove
to Him you would be bond.

If you were to God,
draw once more near . . .
nothing in this world
would you again hold dear!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:8

Draw nigh to God,
and he will draw nigh to you.
Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts,
ye double minded.

Isaiah 55:6-7

Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
and let him return unto the Lord,
and he will have mercy upon him;
and to our God, for he will
abundantly pardon.

You bring into my life
understanding and clarity.

For Your Word is precise,
detailed and clear . . .
how to obtain eternal
joy, bliss and cheer.

God, my Trust,
my Reliance, my Confidence,
in You I have found
a faithful dependence.

For nothing is impossible,
with You all is achievable
through Your mighty power
all things are conceivable.

God, my Trust,
my Salvation, my Sureness
Your mercy for me . . .
is out of Your Goodness!

in thy salvation.

Good Morning Quote ~07.09.20~


Only Jesus ~

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other One we can call on
no other person that can help us
to be to His Father drawn.

There’s no other name in heaven,
no other name given unto man
no other person who has for us
the way to salvation’s plan.

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other One with such power
no other One we can rely on
no matter the given hour.

There’s no other name we know,
no other One that loves us
no other name that spells out
in whom we can always trust.

There is no other name that shines,
no other One has the light
no other name helping us
in the battles we fight.

There is no other name like Jesus,
no other name that we can call
no other person can save us
It’s only Jesus ~ or no one at all!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:12

“Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven
given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
