Jesus Waits For You ~

Jesus waits for you,
on His name to call
to help you up . . .
whenever you fall.

He is ready to lift,
you out of the pit
and fill you with
the Holy Spirit.

Jesus is waiting for you,
to open the door
into a life with Him
that is forevermore.

He is wanting to give,
you peace and hope
so while here on earth
you’ll be able to cope.

Jesus waits for you,
to give Him your heart
so into it He can . . .
His grace and love impart!


Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door,
and knock: if any man hear my
voice, and open the door, I will
come in to him, and will sup
with him, and he with me

A Fruitful Life ~

A life fruitful,
is a life trusting
one the Holy Spirit
is always leading.

It’s a journey,
lasting a lifespan
for God to finish
what He began.

A life fruitful,
is a life faithful
one that is to God
eternally grateful.

It’s an excursion,
into the living Word
an exercise of doing
all you have heard.

A life fruitful,
is a life of growing
one that takes . . .
Jesus knowing!


Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very thing,
that he which hath begun a good
work in you will perform it until
the day of Jesus Christ:

Colossians 1:10

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

in whom also after that ye believed,

ye were sealed with that
holy Spirit of promise,

My Soul’s Delight ~

My soul delights in those,
who trust and wait on Me
it gives My heart pleasure
when blind eyes start to see.

They are My faithful servants,
to whom I will uphold
the elect I have chosen
to gather into My fold.

I have poured out My Spirit,
on those who are the meek
for on Me their sights are set
and My will they do seek.

They call me their Lord,
I call them My sheep
they know to follow Me
for their souls I will keep.

Into righteousness I call them,
in My glory they’ll rise and sing
behold all things come to pass
things new to them I will bring!


Ephesians 1:4-5

According as he hath chosen
us in him before the foundation
of the world, that we should be
holy and without blame
before him in love:

Having predestinated us unto
the adoption of children by
Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good
pleasure of his will,

Psalm 100:3

Know ye that the Lord he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not
we ourselves; we are his people,
and the sheep of his pasture.

Talk to Me Lord, Talk To Me ~

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
for my world’s shaking apart
and the winds of adversity
are blowing thru my heart.

Talk to me Lord and tell me,
the way You’d have me to go
speak to me thru Your Spirit
so Your path I may know.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
make with me a connection
for I am counting on You
to give me Your direction.

Talk to me Lord and lead me,
as I go about my way
tell me to go right or left
I need Your guidance today.

Talk to me Lord, talk to me,
let not pride keep us apart
be that still small voice . . .
speaking to my shaken heart!


Isaiah 30:21

And thine ears shall hear
a word behind thee, saying,
This is the way, walk ye in it,
when ye turn to the right hand,
and when ye turn to the left.

1 Kings 19:12

“And after the earthquake a fire;
but the Lord was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice.”

Mind Renewal ~

Mind renewal,
a daily benefit
a promise of
the Holy Spirit.

A refreshing,
of love and hope
to help each day
to abide and cope.

Mind renewal,
a minute away
to help us get
through the day.

A proving,
of what is good
to do and act
as Christians should.

Mind renewal,
from the contemptible
to what is . . .
to God acceptable!


Ephesians 4.23

And be renewed in
the spirit of your mind;

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing
of your mind, that ye may prove what
is that good, and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God.

Striving For Perfection ~

I strive for perfection,
and many times I fail . . .
but, whenever I do
I get back on the trail.

For what I know is good,
is worth my going for
and when I need strength
I ask Jesus to give me more.

I strain to find God’s will,
but, it I don’t always see
but, I am not deterred
to find His plan for me.

For what is acceptable,
is worth my pursuing
and when I need a push
I ask Jesus for renewing.

I strive for perfection,
I know I can achieve it
for, I know its attainable
through the Holy Spirit!


Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that ye may
prove what is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.

Matthew 5:48

Be ye therefore perfect,
even as your Father which
is in heaven is perfect.

Good Morning Quote ~07.29.22~

Hope Doesn’t Disappoint ~

Hope doesn’t disappoint,
it won’t let you down
hope will bring a smile
where once was a frown.

Hope will not fail you,
it won’t fizzle out
hope will set you free
from fear and doubt.

Hope doesn’t disappoint,
it won’t ever run dry
hope is God’s love
that for you will never die.

Hope will not decrease,
it will never lose its worth
hope is the belief
in a new heaven and earth.

Hope is God’s Spirit
into us that He poured
hope will not disappoint . . .
when Jesus is your Lord!


Romans 5:5

And hope does not disappoint us,
because God has poured out His
love into our hearts through the
Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.

What My Heart Feels ~

Sometimes Lord,
I don’t know what to say
when before You I come
to entreat and to pray.

My words can’t gather,
what my heart feels
to provide to You
my pleas and appeals.

Sometimes Lord,
I can’t seem to convey
what is leaving me
with feelings of dismay.

My thoughts can’t collect,
what my mind decries
and to You my petitions
I cannot comprise.

Sometimes Lord,
all I can do is stutter
and let Your Spirit . . .
my prayer to You utter!


Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth
our infirmities: for we know not
what we should pray for as we ought:
but the Spirit itself maketh intercession
for us with groanings which
cannot be uttered.

Reflecting God’s Love ~

Reflecting God’s love,
is mirroring His Sons
as we show our own
to each and everyone.

It’s letting His Spirit,
come alive in you
so His love can be seen
in all that we do.

Expressing God’s love,
is echoing Jesus’ too
by showing others
how He abides in you.

It’s being kind to all,
merciful and gracious
by always being polite
warm and courteous.

Reflecting God’s love,
we all need to do
for it will reproduce
Jesus image in you!


1 John 4:11

Beloved, if God so loved us,
we ought also to love one another.

All Things Are Possible With God ~

All things are possible,
when in God you trust
all things are feasible
when you see He is just.

All things have meaning,
when in God you believe
all things have a purpose
when His mercy you receive.

All things are a blessing,
when God you obey
all things come together
when to Him you pray.

All things are achievable,
when in God you rely
all things are workable
when faith you apply.

All things are attainable,
when God is your hope
all things are brighter
when He helps you to cope.

All things work together,
when your life to Jesus you give
all things are beautiful . . .
when He’s the reason you live!


Luke 1:37

“For with God nothing
shall be impossible.”

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things
work together for good to
them that love God, to them
who are the called according
to his purpose.

Why I am Hopeful ~

When others ask,
about the hope inside me
I tell them it’s from . . .
believing in what I can’t see.

They look at me puzzled,
til to them I explain . . .
how Jesus on my soul
left an invisible bloodstain.

I confess how He became,
my Lord and Savior
how His love for me is full
of mercy, grace and favor.

I tell them from my sins,
once I turned and repented
how Jesus’ very own Spirit
to me was presented.

And now He guides me,
each and every day
helping me to remain
on the narrow way.

My hope is set on,
the day in heaven I will be
and that is why I say . . .
I believe in what I can’t see!


1 Peter 3:15

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer
to every man that asketh you a reason
of the hope that is in you
with meekness and fear:

God Supplies The Grace ~

God supplies the grace,
for all that we do . . .
it flows right from Him
into me and you.

He delivers His strength,
whenever we are weak
He gives extra power
when more of it we seek.

God grants us mercy,
each day it’s renewable
so we may learn to be
on Him dependable.

He builds up our faith,
regenerates our hope
He provides the means
each day for us to cope.

God supplies the grace,
we give Him back our trust
as we let His Spirit . . .
work in and through us!


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.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me.

Holy Spirit Work In Us ~

Holy Spirit,
work in us
teach us how
to in You trust.

Tell us how,
we’re to live
show us also
how to forgive.

Holy Spirit,
change us too
so we may be
just like You.

Lead and guide,
us to find
peace for both
heart and mind.

Holy Spirit,
in us transform
so to Your ways
we will conform!


2 Corinthians 3:18

But we all, with open face
beholding as in a glass the
glory of the Lord, are changed
into the same image from glory
to glory, even as by the Spirit
of the Lord

Romans 8:29

For whom he did foreknow,
he also did predestinate to
be conformed to the image of his Son,
that he might be the firstborn
among many brethren.

Good Morning Quote ~02.14.22~

To Win The Faithful Race ~

The faithful race,
isn’t an easy course
it’s rough and bumpy
and at times coarse.

For us to stay on track,
takes a lot of grit . . .
and we need the power
of the Holy Spirit.

The faithful race,
isn’t an simple route
it’s trying and difficult
full of fear and doubt.

For we know there’ll be,
plenty of resistance
and without His strength
we can’t go the distance.

To win the faithful race,
we need to have endurance
and holding fast to Jesus
is our only assurance!


1 Corinthians 9:24

Know ye not that they which
run in a race run all, but one
receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.

A Quite Confidence ~

When on the outside,
there is but turbulence
on the inside . . .
I’ve a quiet confidence.

For I do not trust,
all the things I hear
I only trust the things
God whispers in my ear.

When on the outside,
there is but stress
on the inside
I have perfect rest.

For I do not believe,
everything I see
I only believe in what
Jesus reveals to me.

When on the outside,
there is but confusion
I’m so thankful to have . . .
the Holy Spirit’s infusion!


Proverbs 3:26

For the Lord shall be
thy confidence,
and shall keep thy foot
from being taken.

Isaiah 30:15

For thus saith the Lord God,
the Holy One of Israel; In returning
and rest shall ye be saved;
in quietness and in confidence
shall be your strength:
and ye would not.

Not Ashamed ~

I am not ashamed,
of the hope I hold
for it has rendered
my faith strong and bold.

For I’ve experienced,
test and trials galore
and grew in patience
amidst their uproar.

I am not ashamed,
of God’s love for me
for I am convinced
in what I cannot see.

For I’ve been through,
countless storms in life
and found the patience
to endure their strife.

I am not ashamed,
of placing in God my hope
for His Spirit gives to me . . .
the patience I need to cope!


Romans 5:3-5

And not only so, but we glory in
tribulations also: knowing that
tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience;
and experience, hope:

And hope maketh not ashamed;
because the love of God is shed
abroad in our hearts by the Holy
Ghost which is given unto us.

Put On the New Man ~

Lord, You offered me this new man,
and asked me to put him on . . .
You challenged me to grow in him
and be willing to be Spirit drawn.

You told me my life was worthless,
and my heart was as dry as dust
how my mind was full of darkness
overflowing with greed and lust.

You asked me to give to You,
the worldly joys in my possession
You told me in return for them
You’d forgive me my transgression.

You made me open up my eyes,
to the useless things I do
showing me they are fruitless
when not being done for You.

You revealed to me my pain,
was from the emptiness inside
and why this old and new man . . .
can’t live happily side by side.

Lord, You asked me to make a choice,
a heart dark for one full of light . . .
so I chose to put on the new man
and to give the old one a holy fight!


Ephesians 4:24

“And that ye
put on the new man,

which after God
is created in righteousness

and true holiness.”

Walking And Abiding ~

Humble obedience,
walking and abiding
letting the Holy Spirit
to do all the guiding.

Submitting our life,
with Christ in fellowship
so He can with power
our lives equip.

A learned obedience,
by Jesus Himself taught
so we may go and do
the things that we ought.

Maturing in grace,
growing in knowing
the fruit of the Spirit
is worth our sowing.

Humble obedience,
we must all reach
so that we may too . . .
faithfulness teach!


Psalm 119:30

O I have chosen
the way of truth:
thy judgments have
I laid before me.

John 15:4

Abide in me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear
fruit of itself, except it abide
in the vine; no more can ye,

A Purposeful Plan ~

A purposeful plan,
in Christ centered
once into the world
Jesus entered.

A pattern for us,
on how we’re to live
one that teaches us how
to love and forgive.

A life reflecting,
His grace and goodwill
one desiring knowing
and doing God’s will.

A spiritual walk,
in every one of His ways
willing to be Spirit led
for the rest of our days.

A life filled with purpose,
like Jesus we’re to be
so that His Spirit in us
others would too see!

in him ought himself also
so to walk, even as he walked.

Colossians 2:10

God’s Gift To Believers ~

God’s gift to believers,
is Jesus inside of you . . .
His strength and might
for everything you do.

For without Him inside,
we would be powerless
to fight off the rulers
of the present darkness.

God’s gift to believers,
is His Spirit living in you . . .
to help you hold on to
all that is pure and true.

For without His guidance,
we would be helpless
to battle the authorities
of today’s evilness.

God’s gift to believers,
is having eternal hope . . .
to help us each day
with the enemy to cope!


Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.

Rightly Dividing ~

Rightly dividing,
the truth of the Word
rightly believing
in the facts heard.

Either it’s the true Gospel,
Holy Spirit inspired
or the one that’s diluted
that you now desire.

Rightly understanding,
what the cross is about
rightly receiving
our Savior without doubt.

Either you believe Jesus,
died for everyone’s sin
or you reject Him and go
with a different spin.

Rightly dividing,
rightly discerning . . .
for the true Word of God
is worth our perusing!


2 Timothy 2:15

Study to shew thyself
approved unto God,
a workman that needeth
not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the

For when we thirst,

Bread of Life,

so to the truth
we will not stray.

For when we hunger,
after righteousness
He will transform us
into His likeness.

Bread of Life,
nourishment spiritual
feeds us the truth
that is scriptural!

I am the bread of life:

never hunger; and he that

In The Wilderness of My Soul ~

Lord, in the wilderness of my soul,
there are valleys deep and low . . .
and sometimes I wander in them
not sure the direction I should go.

In my doubt I meet with despair,
and my thoughts turn to giving up
for in my desperation . . .
I don’t see Your grace in my cup.

Lord, in the wilderness of my soul,
there are mountains high and wide
and sometimes all I want to do
is just to run away and hide.

In my fear I meet with dread,
with each obstacle I come to
but, I know I must get past them
if I want to get closer to You.

Lord, there’s a wilderness in my soul,
a vast land of empty spaces
long roads for me to travel on
with plenty of rough places.

But, I know I’m on the path,
leading me straight to You . . . .
and with Your strength and help
I know I’ll make it through!

in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight.”
