Oh, If I Could Fly Away ~

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d soar into my Savior’s arms
there I would find my quiet rest
and be safe from all that harms.

I would take off and reside,
under the shadow of His wings
I’d be free from all the strife
living in this world often brings.

Oh, if I could fly away,
like an eagle I’d mount and rise
and climb to where His peace
would calm my fearful cries.

I would go right up to Him,
lay my burdens at His feet
and with Jesus I would find
my everlasting retreat.

Oh, if I could fly away,
if I had wings like a dove
I’d soar right up to heaven
and rest in His eternal love.

I would climb so ever high,
till I found His stillness
I would dive into His calm
and sop up His quietness.

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d take you along with me . . .
and together we’d find rest
throughout all of eternity!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:6

“And I said, Oh that I had wings like a
dove! for then would I fly away, and be
at rest.”

Into Jesus ~

Into Jesus,
I’m pressing in
I’m confident
this race I’ll win.

I’m moving on,
going for the goal
I’m letting God
my life control.

Into Jesus,
I’m going farther
I’m growing faith
trusting harder.

I’m pressing on,
marching onward
I’m keeping my eyes
looking forward.

Into Jesus,
I’m going deeper
I’m making Jesus
my soul’s keeper!

~~~~~~

Philippians 3:14

I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.

All Things Will Be New ~

All things new,
all things bright
all things perfect
all things right.

All things dark,
no longer to see
all things evil
no longer to flee.

All things good,
all things glorious
all things lovely
all things victorious.

All things wicked,
no longer to battle
all things vile
no longer to shackle.

All things to be made new,
all things will be bright
all things will be bathed
in Jesus’ perfect Light!

~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:5

And he that sat upon the throne
said, Behold, I make all things new.
And he said unto me, Write: for
these words are true and faithful.

Work Out Your Own Salvation ~

You can exercise,
every day at the gym
you can lift weights
to keep fit and trim.

But, if you’re not living,
a Godly life . . .
your soul will experience
eternal strife.

You can go to a clubhouse,
in the day or at night
you can keep your physic
noticeable strong and tight.

But, if you’re not working,
out your own salvation
you could be headed
for eternal damnation.

You can run a marathon,
or any other race
you can groom yourself
to take first place.

But, if you’re not training,
each day for Godliness
you just might miss out on . . .
having everlasting bliss!

~~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 4:8

“For bodily exercise profiteth little:
but godliness is profitable unto all
things, having promise of the life
that now is, and of that which is to come.

Let The Water Flow ~

Let the Water flow,
let it gush, let it spew
so it may bring Lord
more thirsty souls to You.

Let the Spirit burst forth,
let it flare, let it erupt
so it may save Lord
the depraved and corrupt.

Let the Truth spill out,
let it ooze, let it seep
so it may harness Lord
lost and wayward sheep.

Let the Light flood,
let it drench, let it surge
so that in Your grace Lord
sinful hearts can purge.

Let the Living Water flow,
let it gush, let it release
so that in You Lord . . .
all can find eternal peace!

~~~~~~

John 7:37-39

In the last day, that great day
of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him
come unto me, and drink.

He that believeth on me,
as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow
rivers of living water.

(But this spake he of the Spirit,
which they that believe on him
should receive: for the Holy Ghost
was not yet given; because that
Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Sticky Note From God~ 04.22.19~


Beyond The Cross ~

Beyond the cross,
there’s a glorious view
for in Jesus’ death . . .
all things are made new.

New beginnings,
fresh clean starts
eternal hope
to fill our hearts.

Beyond the cross,
there is new life
the end to sin
and worldly strife.

No more battles,
no more struggles
no more satan
causing troubles.

Beyond the cross,
there are no fears
no death, no pain
and no more tears.

Despair will end,
suffering will cease
there will only be
everlasting peace.

Beyond the cross,
hope springs anew
all because Jesus . . .
died for me and you!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Heavenly Minded ~

When you are,
heavenly minded
in this world
you won’t be blinded.

For when you know,
your real citizenship
into satan traps
you will not fall or slip.

When you live,
a life worthy of
the grace of Jesus
and His love.

You will be,
a light that reflects
His life and power
and its effects.

When you are,
heavenly focused
how you act
will be noticed!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 1:27

“Only let your conversation
be as it becometh the gospel
of Christ: that whether I come
and see you, or else be absent,
I may hear of your affairs,
that ye stand fast in one
spirit, with one mind striving
together for the faith of the gospel;

Philippians 3:20

“For our conversation is in heaven;
from whence also we look for the

Sticky Note From God ~01.16.19~


God Sent Out His Word ~

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Word
so throughout the universe
by all it’d be heard.

He gave us His Light,
so we could understand
the plan for salvation
He had for all of man.

Our hearts are enlighten,
once His Word enters in
to help us to recognize
the cause of our sin.

As we read and we study,
the Light shines brighter
and our confessions to God
makes our burdens lighter.

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Light
simply so we’d keep . . .
heaven in our sight!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.”

Psalm 119:130

“The entrance of thy words
giveth light;
it giveth
understanding
unto the simple.”

Jesus Will Console You ~

When heavy on your heart,
is your every care . . .
as they become too much
for you alone to bear.

Know Jesus will bring you,
comfort and relief
and console you through
all that’s causing your grief.

When hefty on your mind,
are worrisome thoughts
as they set out to bind
your faith into knots.

Know Jesus will bring you,
great comfort and good cheer
as He consoles you through
all you’ve come to fear.

When heavy and hefty,
are your problems and cares
know Jesus consolation
will lift you from your despair!

~~~~~~~~

“In the multitude of my thoughts
within me thy comforts delight my soul.”

Guilty Sinners ~

Guilty sinners,
deserving disgrace
instead are saved
by Jesus’ grace.

Worthy of hell,
its perishing heat
instead their Savior
in heaven will meet.

Guilty sinners,
not meriting favor
instead eternity
they will savor.

Worthy of humiliation,
for their sin
instead the crown of life
they will win.

Guilty sinners,
saved by Jesus’ grace
for He was cursed
in their place!

~~~~~~

Romans 3:23

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

Galatians 3:13

“Christ hath redeemed us from
the curse of the law, being
made a curse for us: for it
is written,
Cursed is every one
that hangeth on a tree:”

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.”

Holding the Line

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
