Sticky Note From God ~11.12.18~


The Heart of My Soul ~

Lord help me to keep,
on my heart a watchful eye
so that it may not for You
shrivel up and dry.

Let me be meticulous,
as to what I let into it
so it is always opened
to the wisdom of Your spirit.

Lord, help me to guard,
the heart of my soul
so that it’ll always be
in Your righteous control.

Let me be scrupulous,
as to what I hold dear
so that it may be filled
with holy awe and fear.

Lord, help me to keep,
my heart to Your keeping
so that my life will be . . .
to You always pleasing!

~~~~

Proverbs 4:23

“Keep thy heart
with all diligence;
for out of it are
the issues of life.”

Good Morning Quote ~05.09.18~


Lord, Tell Me What You See ~

Lord search my heart,
tell me what You see . . .
let me know if any evil
is still left inside of me.

Take a real close look,
for any sin yet hidden
any idols I hold onto
keeping me still smitten.

Once You point them out,
let me be finally rid of . . .
anything that still keeps me
from knowing Your prefect love.

Then put me on the path,
that leads to the everlasting
where I can learn the meaning
of peace without understanding.

Lord search my heart,
tell me what you see . . .
let me know how I can live
a life pleasing to only Thee!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 139:23-24

“Search me, O God, and know my heart:
try me, and know my thoughts:

And see if there be any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.”

The Object of My Faith ~

The object of my faith,
is Jesus and no other . . .
with anything or one else
I don’t even want to bother.

For, all other devices,
are just diversions
and all other gospels
are just perversions.

So, I keep my focus on,
what is my eternal goal
not that which will bring
damnation to my soul.

For, this world is full of,
all kinds of spiritualness
but, in Jesus I have found
truth and righteousness.

Jesus is the only object,
in which to put our trust
for, faith without His grace
alone cannot save us!

~~~~~~~

John 1:29

“The next day John seeth
Jesus coming unto him,
and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh away
the sin of the world.”

The gods Of This Day ~

The gods Of The Day ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, may I not bow,
to the gods of this day
may my heart and soul
never to them sway.

May I not bend,
to the god of tolerance
may I not open my mind
to this ungodly audience.

May I not curtsy,
to the god of worldly greed
may I not pay the high cost
of following this god’s creed.

May I not fall down,
to the god of self-worship
may to this god I see
how it’s eternally worthless.

May I not lower myself,
to the god of secularism
may I not stoop for
the god of liberalism.

Lord, may I only bow to You,
the God of all creation . . .
may I always give to You
my full undivided devotion!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 1:23-25

” And changed the glory
of the uncorruptible God

into an image made like
to corruptible man,

and to birds, and fourfooted beasts,
and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up
to uncleanness through the lusts
of their own hearts, to dishonour
their own bodies between themselves:

Who changed the truth of God into a lie,
and worshipped and served the creature
more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.”
Amen.

A Living God ~

hope-in-living-god CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I worship a living God,
the only one there is
every nation, every man
in the universe are His.

There’s no mother nature,
trees don’t have a soul
nor rocks or birds in the air
over Him have control.

He’s a God of power,
mighty are His works
unlike the other gods
who have worldly perks.

The vanities of other gods,
are full of nothingness
believing in them brings
only eternal emptiness.

Today there are millions,
of different gods and idols
but my hope is in the only God
who is living and not idle!

~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 4:10
King James Version

“For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach,
because we trust in the living God,
who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.”

He’s Looking!

The Eyes Of the Lord Searching used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

He gazes from above,
He’s looking to find
who is searching for Him
with all their heart and mind.

He sees not a one,
not one who is seeking
all have turned aside
no one for Him is looking.

He looks to the East,
their souls to Him are idle
He scans to the West
they are, their own idols.

He looks to the South,
no – not even one
He looks to the North
their hearts, He has none.

He looks and He looks,
all across the seas
but love for the Lord
isn’t in the hearts of these!

~~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 15:3
King James Version

“The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
beholding the evil and the good.”

What God Do You Believe In?

idol

Some people don’t believe in God,
they can’t see the proof of His creation
they think all the beauty before them
came from the book of evolution.

Some people can’t be sure of God,
they think perhaps there may be one
but since they can’t see or feel Him
they think perhaps there may be none.

Some people don’t want to know God,
they love the darkness not His light
and upon their beds they plan
all the evil deeds they do in His sight.

Some think god and nature are one,
that he has no eyes, no ears, no face
they say he has no heart to love you
therefore, he can’t impart eternal grace.

Some people think they are god,
they don’t want to be told what to do
they are ruled by their pride and ego
and their arrogance they love to spew.

Some people think any god will do,
that one god is just as good as another
and no matter the religious path you take
it’s gonna lead us all to come together.

Some people believe in the one true God,
for He is the self-revealing God of man
and through the gift of salvation we believe
Jesus will finish ~ what He began!

Getting My House In Order!

As For Me and My House used with permission Doorstop Verses

I’m getting my house in order,
I’m cleaning up the grime
gonna get rid of the things
that are just a waste of time.

I’m clearing out the closets,
throwing away all my stuff
gonna toss out the frivolity
and get rid of the useless fluff.

I’m going from room to room,
until all my idols I uncover
gonna give every one away
so my God ~ I can rediscover.

Then I’m going to spend,
my free time in the Word
I’ll be picking up my Bible
and getting closer to my Lord.

Things ~

Don't lose sight used with permission IBible Verses

Things, we all possess them,
most of them have a hold on us
demanding all of our attention
oh, how over them we love to fuss.

Things, cluttering up our lives,
stuffed away in crammed drawers
lying out in the open spaces
locked away behind closed doors.

Things, keeping us so very busy,
taking us here and there
requiring all our leisure moments
leaving no time for God to spare.

Things, the need for this and that,
longing after the newest toy
always needing to upgrade
oh, how they give us so much joy.

Things, we gotta have them all,
tucking them deep inside our heart
playing with them in our minds
keeping us from God far apart.

Things, we all have lots of them,
we need them for our survival
oh, how we worship and adore them
but to God ~ they’re all just an idol!

~~~~~~~

1 John 5:21
King James Version

“Little children, keep yourselves from
idols. Amen.”

Things, Things, Things!

Things, things, things . . .
they are everywhere
their causing me grief
misery and despair.

Things, taking up my time,
running my life too
things that are keeping me
from the “thing” I should do.

Things, cluttering up my mind,
taking over my thoughts
things people give me
things that I have bought.

Things, taking me from God,
spending more time with them
things ruining my relationship
idols God would condemn.

Things, things, things,
who needs them anymore
I’m getting rid of all the things
so that God ~ I’ll not ignore!

Worldly Things

I Love Jesus free photo by David Elgena # 5344

There is only one God,
in whom I put my trust
all of the other ones
have turned into rust.

I once relied on people,
to bring to me pleasure
but they couldn’t convey
love that I could treasure.

Everything is conditional,
nothing is without a cost
and now I can understand
why so many are truly lost.

I thought if I set my sights,
on the things of this world
that everlasting happiness
I would be able to unfurl.

But, they too soon corroded,
and all turned into dust
that is why it’s only God
in whom I now put my trust.

For His love is eternal,
and brings heavenly rewards
now being with Him one day
is all that I look towards.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those
things which are above, where Christ sitteth
on the right hand of God”

All Other god’s Are Idols

All Other God's Are Idols ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

All other gods are just idols,
worthless, useless and feign
they hold no power or value
nor can they rule or reign.

There’s only One God I know of,
He made the heavens and earth
and the Good News I bring you
will show His magnificent worth.

Honor and majesty are before Him,
strength and beauty is His domain
the sea swells to His greatness
Holier than Holy is His blessed name.

He has brought salvation to the world,
to all the people of every nation
soon He will pour out His judgment
and each will receive their due ration.

The universe will tremble before Him,
when on His magnificence all eyes gaze
the trees in the forest will rejoice
every living creature will sing His praise.

Mercy and truth He will bring,
than all other gods will burn away
for all the people will finally see
His righteousness on judgment day.

All other gods are just idols,
worthless, useless and feign
and I have a burning need to tell you
my God will soon come to  reign!

of the peoples are idols”

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)
