Walking In the Spirit ~

When you walk in the Spirit,
you will live in Jesus’ light
all things will be clearer
everything will look bright.

For the Spirit will change you,
your mind He will capture
fill it with secure thoughts
of the upcoming rapture.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll have a worldly guide
someone who will help you
to keep faith in your stride.

For the Spirit will lead you,
on the path of righteousness
helping you to live a life
in the power of faithfulness.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll repel the darkness
for the Light of Jesus . . .
will help keep you sinless!

let us also walk

God Has A Plan ~

For every trial,
God has a purpose
He has a plan . . .
before they surface.

He sends us tests,
deserving or not
to see how much
grace we have got.

It is up to us,
how we will react
whether our troubles
our faith will impact.

Some choose to grow,
resentful and bitter
some opt to make
their faith in God bigger.

For every trial,
God sends to us . . .
He’ll reveal the purpose
as we increase our trust!

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.

To him be glory both
now and for ever. Amen.

Snippet of the Day ~ 03.25.16 ~

From the Poem: Grow


By My Fruits. . .

Soil by Marian Trinidad free photo # 9785

By my fruits,
will I be known
by all the seeds
I have sown.

The good ones,
and the bad
the ones that take
the ones that add.

Just what will it be,
that other’s see
making them want
what’s inside me?

Will their eyes,
glimpse and know
God is with me
from the seeds I sow?

Am I strong,
or, am I weak
is it my will
or the Lord’s I seek?

Did I plant,
the seeds in love
not of mine
but, of God’s above.

Were they watered,
from the start
with God’s Word
straight from my heart?

Can they see,
the peace within
or is peace missing
because of hidden sin?

Will they see,
God’s strength and power
or has my faith
turned somewhat sour?

All these things,
I need to ask
for, there is no hiding
behind a mask.

God knows the true purpose,
and intent of my labor
so I pray He grants . . .
all my seeds His favor.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

James 3:17-18
King James Version

“But the wisdom that is from above
is first pure, then peaceable, gentle,
willing to yield, full of mercy
and good fruits, without partiality
and without hypocrisy.

This Grace ~

It’s a thing of beauty,
a thing of hope and love
it’s a thing of wonder
this grace ~ from God above.

It’s a thing of strength,
when we are feeling faint
it’s a thing of confidence
it’s our spiritual restraint.

It’s a thing we should seek,
something we must grow
it’s a thing for us to share
with every one we know.

It’s a thing of praise,
a thing to worship and adore
it’s a thing of total sacrifice
a gift we can’t ignore.

This grace covers your past,
your future and your today
this grace ~ will make you shout
hallelujah and hooray!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 9:8
King James Version

“And God is able to make all grace abound
toward you; that ye, always having all
sufficiency in all things, may abound to every
good work:”

Plant A Word Today ~

 

Plant A Word Today ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Plant a Word today,
prepare another’s heart
then sow the seed of faith
and watch what it will start.

Plant a Word today,
spread the Gospel tract
then water it with trust
and others lives it will impact.

Plant a Word today,
release the plan of peace
then sprinkle it with hope
and God’s power it will release.

Plant a Word today,
share the fruit of Christ’s love
then watch it grow up
giving praise to God above.

Plant a Word today,
it just takes one tiny seed . . .
but with it you may harvest
all someone’s soul will ever need!

Matthew 13:3
King James Version

“And he spake many things
unto them in parables,

 saying, Behold, a sower
went forth to sow . . .

Walk In the Spirit ~

Holy Spirit Reign by Michael McFatridge

When you walk in the Spirit,
you will live in His light
everything will be clearer
all things will look bright.

For the Spirit will change you,
He will capture your thoughts
your attitudes will transform
as His knowledge, He allots.

At times, the pace will be fast,
most of the times, it’ll go slow
for it takes many a revelation
if His fruits are to grow.

When you walk in the Spirit,
stay very close to His side
for He knows the direction
of each step, of your stride.

You’ll want to follow Him,
no matter where He may go
for God’s plans and purposes
He wants you to know.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll not be sin’s slave
for His light brings freedom
from things that you crave.

The Spirit brings much  joy,
and if you walk in His light
your own spirit will soar
much to God’s delight!
