In God’s Holy Presence ~

In God’s holy presence,
there’s joy in its fullness
pleasures circulating
His everlasting goodness.

There is peace and hope,
a spreading of refreshing
an ongoing revolving
of life-changing blessings.

In God’s holy presence,
there’s mercy restoring
upon the Holy Spirit’s
heart filling outpouring.

There’s an internal calm,
an outgoing of favor
the ongoing flowing
of grace from a Savior.

In God’s holy presence,
here and above . . .
there’s an effortless flow
of steadfast love!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

Good Morning Quote ~12.05.18~


I Must Admit ~

I admit . . .
I am old-fashioned
for Jesus is
my one true passion.

I know people think,
I am out of it
when I say I’m filled
with His spirit.

I acknowledge,
I’m old-school
for I let Jesus
my heart rule.

I know people feel,
I’m a dinosaur
for holy living
I still stand up for.

I accept . . .
what they think of me
for still believing in
what I can’t see!

~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 2:15

“Study to shew thyself approved
unto God, a workman that needeth
not to be ashamed, rightly dividing
the word of truth.”

Faith Believes ~

Faith comes,
from Bible reading
hearing, listening
and then heeding.

Faith rises,
in hearts that desire
to be filled with
Holy Spirit’s fire.

Faith grows,
when it’s assured
in things not seen
it’s safely secured.

Faith trusts,
nothings impossible
for it knows with God
all is possible.

Faith believes,
with all its soul
for it knows . . .
God’s in control!

~~~~~~

Romans 10:17

“So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God.”

Good Morning Quote ~11.15.18~


Active Participation ~

I know that mountains high,
I know it looks impossible
but, I also know with God
all things are possible.

I know that rivers deep,
I know its looks menacing
but, I also know for God
it will be worth my crossing.

I know that valleys low,
I know all its up and downs
but, I also know with God
the obstacles I’ll get around.

I know that oceans wide,
I know its under current
but, I also know with God
it needn’t be a deterrent.

I know that faith takes,
a lot of determination
for, I know trust in God
takes active participation!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a
grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.”

Sticky Note From God ~11.06.18~


Grieve Not ~

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
nor the effects of His grace
don’t let your appetites
be with corruption laced.

For mighty are the works,
He has in store for you
but, you must allow
His power to come through.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
with your lying, clamoring lips
do not cause Him grief
by your bitter. angry quips.

For He cannot provide,
His strength in your life
if you continue to give
others heartache and strife.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit,
for it is God’s seal on you
it’s the mark of the souls
who keep heaven in their view!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:30

“And grieve not the holy Spirit
of God, whereby ye are sealed
unto the day of redemption.”

Sticky Note to God ~11.06.18 ~


Crossroads~

Often at a crossroad,
we decide the way
we think we should go
before we even pray.

We trust our intuition,
so we make the choice
without listening to . . .
the Holy Spirit’s voice.

We start off down the path,
we thought was best for us
forgetting it’s God’s will
and not ours we should trust.

We grow more unsure,
with each step we take
until we start wishing
the choice we didn’t make.

So next time at a crossroad,
before you make a decision
pray first asking God to give  . . .
you guidance and wisdom!

~~~~~~~

James 1:5

“If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God,
that giveth to all
men liberally, and
upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him.”

Into His Holy, Glorious Light ~

 

May God strengthen you,
with the power of His might
until with the saints you enter
into His holy, glorious light.

May you have endurance,
to run the faithful race
may you have a heart full
of praise, joy and grace.

May you hold onto the faith,
with patience and endurance
may all you say and do
be done with temperance.

May your life always be,
to your Father pleasing
may knowledge from His Word
you always be gleaning.

May God strengthen you,
in works that are good and right
may your fruits bring others
into His holy, glorious light!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 1:10-12

“That ye might walk worthy
of the Lord unto all pleasing,
being fruitful in every good work,
and increasing in the knowledge of God;

Strengthened with all might,
according to his glorious power,
unto all patience and longsuffering
with joyfulness;

Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hath made us meet to be
partakers of the inheritance
of the saints in light:”

Walking Upright ~

Walking upright,
takes a lot of skill
but it’s easy . . .
if you know God’s will.

For in your heart,
God will speak
and the truth
you’ll want to seek.

Walking upright,
is not too hard
if you let God be
your shield and guard.

For He will show you,
His righteous way
and all things good
He’ll bring to your day.

Walking upright,
can surely be done . .
if you follow the steps
of God’s beloved Son!

~~~~~

Psalm 15:1-2

“Lord, who shall abide
in thy tabernacle? who shall
dwell in thy holy hill?

He that walketh uprightly,
and worketh righteousness,
and speaketh the truth
in his heart.”

Psalm 84:11

“For the Lord God is a sun
and shield: the Lord will
give grace and glory:
no good thing will he
withhold from them that
walk uprightly.”

Joyfully Helpless ~

God has shown me,
when I’m powerless
how without His might
I’m indeed helpless.

For I have learned,
when I remain weak
more of His grace
I constantly seek.

God have proven,
my strength is worthless
how with out His power
my own is pointless.

For I have learned,
sufficient is His grace
no matter the troubles
I may have to face.

God has shown me,
to be joyful when helpless
for His grace will keep me
from becoming faithless!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I
rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.”

Leap of Faith ~

Whenever you hit,
that eventual wall
remember on Jesus
you can always call.

He will help get you,
up and over it
with the strength
of the Holy Spirit.

Whenever you hit,
that awaiting obstacle
don’t forget with Jesus
nothing is impossible.

He will help you to take,
faith’s boundless leap
and on you His power
He will endlessly heap.

Whenever you hit,
that unexpected barricade
remember with Jesus
you need not be dismayed!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:29

“For by thee I have run
through a troop;
and by my God have
I leaped over a wall.”

The Perfect Time Zone ~

God’s timing,
is always the best
on this fact
we can safely rest.

For His timing,
is not like our own
for His is in . . .
the perfect time zone.

God’s timing,
is never too early
His timetable
never gets murky.

For His timing,
is right up to the hour
there isn’t anything
not under His power.

God’s timing,
is perfectly set
on His time-frame
we can safely bet!

~~~~~~~~

As for God, his way is perfect:
the word of the Lord is tried:
he is a buckler to all those
that trust in him.”

of this one thing,
that one day is with the Lord
as a thousand years,
and a thousand years
as one day.”

Cracked ~

God gave me this body,
and at first it was intact
but as it grew older
I saw it began to crack.

Once the cracks started,
they could not be stopped
for the more I sinned . . .
out more of them popped.

The cracks started to chip,
piece by piece they fell
and the more I tried to hide them
the more in sin I would dwell.

As they started to fall off,
I began to see the real me
and the more that I sinned
the more damage I could see.

And so I called upon God,
and His awesome power
to fill me with His mercy
so my sins He could scour.

God gave me this body,
to be used as His vessel
and now with His strength
with sin I no longer wrestle.

2 Corinthians 4:7

“But we have this treasure
in jars of clay, to show that
the surpassing power
belongs to God and not to us”

A Life Willing ~

Lord give me a life,
full of only You
with a faith
through Your view.

Let the Holy Spirit,
do all the leading
so I may be to You
faithfully pleasing.

Lord give me a heart,
that is always willing
to be compassionate
merciful and giving.

Let me not live a life,
stubbornly self-centered
but one that is to You
steadfastly surrendered.

Lord, give me a life,
eager to do Your will
a heart empty of me
so Your love it can fill!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 25:21

“His lord said unto him, Well done,
thou good and faithful servant:
thou hast been faithful over a
few things, I will make thee
ruler over many things: enter
thou into the joy of thy lord.”

Bible Prophecy, Christian News. Salvation is not in our hands. Only Jesus Christ can save. John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
