Wholly, Holy Living ~

Wholly, holy living,
righteous and true
is what Jesus calls . . .
for all to be and do.

Wholly submitted,
not just in part
Jesus wants the all . . .
of each soul and heart.

Wholly, holy living,
pure and undefiled
are those who in Jesus
have been reconciled.

Wholly committed,
not partly submersed
in Jesus we’re to be
completely immersed.

Wholly, holy living,
faithful and steadfast
is what Jesus calls . . .
the world’s outcasts!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 56:8

“The Lord God, which gathereth
the outcasts of Israel saith,
Yet will I gather others to him,
beside those that are gathered unto him.

Fear’s Canvas ~

When night turns,
thoughts anxious
casting shadows
on fear’s canvas.

Turn to God,
to ease your mind
and His peace
you will find.

When night’s dread,
long fingers wrap
and your heart
it has in a trap.

Turn to God,
to release its grasp
and onto His calm
let your heart clasp.

When the night turns,
your thoughts anxious
cast them onto God . . .
and watch them vanish!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

“Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.”

Into God’s Capable Hands ~

When we put our troubles,
into God’s mighty hands
He in return gives us faith
in all things to withstand.

For, when our trust is put,
in the One who is in control
fear, doubt and trepidation
will not enter into the soul.

When we give to God,
our worries and our cares
He in return gives us grace
so not to crumble in despair.

For, when our hope is in,
the One who formed us
there too will we put
every ounce of our trust.

When we put our troubles,
into hands capable
God in return gives us  . . .
a way escapable!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:6

“Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:”

We’re In This Boat Together ~

I’m riding out these waves,
no matter how big they get
I will stick out this storm
and over it I’ll not fret.

For, Jesus is with me,
we’re in this boat together . . .
and He has promised to me
any storm we could weather.

As the winds barrel down,
I’m going to coast along
they’ll not blow me away
regardless of how strong.

For, Jesus is my Anchor,
onto Him I’ll keep my hold
for, we’re in this boat together
no matter how hard we’re rolled.

I’m riding out these waves,
I’ve the perfect ship mate . . .
for, Jesus is in this boat with me
and I trust Him with my fate!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:29

“He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof
are still.”

The Seeds You Sow ~

May the seeds you sow,
grow and multiply
may hope to all
they daily supply.

May they be rich,
in truth and mercy
watered with love
to quench the thirsty.

May they take root,
and find nourishment
so they can be seeds
also of encouragement.

May they grow in faith,
to sin, no longer bound
so they too can spread
the Good News around.

May the seeds you sow,
lay not dormant or inactive
but, multiply and grow . . .
into seeds Jesus attractive!

~~~~~~

Luke 8:8

“And other fell on good ground,
and sprang up, and bare fruit
an hundredfold. And when he
had said these things,
he cried, He that hath
ears to hear, let him hear.”

Until My Last Breath ~

I trust the Lord,
each night long
for, I know He will
make me strong.

I trust the Lord,
for my every day
I know His light
will lead my way.

I trust the Lord,
with all my soul
for, I know it’s His
to keep and control.

I trust the Lord,
my life to Him I give
for, I know He knows
just how long I’ll live.

I’ll trust the Lord,
until my last breath
for I know in Him . . .
there is no death!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 14:8

“For whether we live,
we live unto the Lord;
and whether we die,
we die unto the Lord:
whether we live therefore,
or die, we are the Lord’s.”

My Spiritual Wants ~

My spiritual wants,
every day are met
over them I’ve no need
to worry or fret.

For when I’m hungry,
on the Word I feed
it supplies my soul
with the faith I need.

When I am thirsty,
I go to the water of Life
for it gives me hope
in the drought of strife.

When I’m famished,
I feed on God’s promise
not to ever leave
neither forsake us.

When I am dry,
to the living Fountain I go
knowing more grace
out of it will flow.

My spiritual wants,
are met everyday
for Jesus is my Life
my Truth and my Way!

~~~~~~~~

John 6.35

Jesus said to them,
“I am the bread of life;
whoever comes to me
shall not hunger, and
whoever believes in me
shall never thirst.”

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.”

Jesus Came To Save ~

Jesus came not to condemn,
but to save us from our sin
to free us from the bondage
of the evilness that lives within.

But, the flesh fights the spirit,
and works its way into our life
bringing us upheaval in this world
and into the next one endless strife.

The works of the flesh are clear,
fornication and uncleanness,
idolatry, witchcraft, lasciviousness
envy, hatred and drunkenness.

Add to these adultery and wrath,
selfishness, strife and greed
impurity, murder and covertness
from which we all need to be freed.

Jesus, came not to condemn,
but to save those who confess
repent and turn from their sins
and no longer transgress!

~~~~~~~

John 3:17

“For God sent not his Son
into the world to condemn
the world;
but that the world
through him might be saved.”

Afternoon Ponderings ~04.08.18~


The Love of The World ~

The love of the world,
is but foolishness . . .
all it has to offer
is truly meaningless.

It’s full of vanities,
prideful, greedy lust
one day all it offers
will tarnish and rust.

The love of the world,
is empty, grim and grave
once you desire of it
to it you’ll be a slave.

It teaming with sin,
too godless to mention
it’s where satan reigns
with all his henchman.

The love of the word,
is foolishness for sure
and the Light of Jesus . . .
is it’s only saving cure!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

“Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life,
is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.”

Jesus Will Always Love you ~

Jesus loves you,
He always will
though at times
this you may not feel.

He made a promise,
to take care of you
by giving believers
His Spirit in His lieu.

He’s your comforter,
your helpful friend
never will He leave
He’s there till the end.

He will guide you,
in truth and light
give you the power
of His holy might.

You may wander,
but He won’t go away
He’ll not let you
completely go astray.

Jesus loves you,
on this you can rely
this truth I pray
you will not deny!

~~~~~~~~

John 15:13

Greater love hath
no man than this,
that a man lay down
his life for his friends.”

His Sufficient Grace ~

When I’m weak,
and oh so weary
when the road ahead
is long and dreary.

To my Lord,
I cry for more grace
so what’s before me
I can bravely face.

When I’m anxious,
feeling low and down
when my world
comes crashing down.

To my Lord,
I cry for more power
to take me through
every troubled hour.

When I’m tested,
to my very limit
when afflicted
in soul and spirit.

To my Lord,
for my grace I cry . . .
for, He has all I need
to help me get by!

~~~~~~~

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.”

When Satan Deceives ~

When satan whispers,
calmly in your ear
God’s has left you
see, He’s not here.

Don’t you indulge,
in this wily deceit
for God promised
to be your retreat.

When satan wails,
loudly in your ear
See, all your prayers
God does not hear.

Don’t you believe,
in this cunning lie
for God listens to
your every cry.

When satan comes,
with whispers to deceive
wail right back at him . . .
just in whom you believe!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:4

“Ye are of God, little children,
and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you,
than he that is in the world.

Spring’s Sunshine~

Lord, as the buds,
begin to re-form
in Spring’s sunshine
bright and warm.

May I too,
open up to You
to be restored
and made anew.

Lord, as the birds,
take up their song
as in the breeze
they glide along.

May I too,
sing out to You
my song of praise
for all You do.

Lord, as Spring,
blooms and sings . . .
may I too emerge
on faithful wings!

~~~~~~~~

Song of Solomon 2:11-12

“For, lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;

The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds
is come, and the voice of the turtle
is heard in our land;”

Thank You Father, For My Risen Savior ~

My Father who’s in heaven,
today I bring my praise
my thankfulness to You
I just want to raise.

I thank You for Your Son,
who died on the cross for me
I’m grateful for His grace
that from sin has set me free.

I thank you for the Holy Spirit,
my seal of redemption
when back to Your throne
Jesus made His ascension.

I thank You for the lively hope,
that has taken over me
for the call to holy living
until in heaven with You l be.

My Father who’s in heaven,
to You I sing my praise
I am so thankful that today
my Savior’s life You raised!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:3-4

Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant
mercy hath begotten us again unto
a lively hope by the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you.”

Happy RESURRECTION Day


Jesus Wept ~

Jesus groaned,
He moaned, He sighed
for that poor woman . . .
He even cried.

He felt the agony,
of sorrows fervent heat
for that poor woman . . .
fallen down at His feet.

Jesus wept,
real tears were shed
for that poor woman . . .
He bowed His head.

For, He too felt,
the pain, the grief
for that poor woman . . .
over death’s disbelief.

Jesus still groans,
moans and sighs
for the heartbroken . .
I’m sure He still cries!

~~~~~~~~~

John 11:32-35

“Then when Mary was come where Jesus was,
and saw him, she fell down at his feet,
saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here,
my brother had not died.

When Jesus therefore saw her weeping,
and the Jews also weeping which came with her,
he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.

And said, Where have ye laid him?
They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

Jesus wept.

His Stripes ~

His stripes,
my forgiven sin
His chastisement
my peace within.

His wounds,
my transgression
His death
my redemption.

His bruising,
my iniquity
His crown
my victory.

His sorrow,
my corruption
His grief
my adoption.

His stripes,
my healing
His Spirit
my sealing!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:4-5

“Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.

“But he was wounded
for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace
was upon him;
and with his stripes
we are healed.”

Sticky Note to God ~03.30.18


God Is Never Late ~

 

God is never late,
tardy, He is not
all goes by His plan
in the time He allots.

God is never slow,
His timing is perfected
the hour, the minute
He has already selected.

God is never delayed,
His purpose is on track
on His own timetable
not a second will He tack.

God is never slack,
He has time on His rein
He knows the exact moment
when Jesus will come to reign.

God is never late,
He knows how long the span
all will work out in the end
for time is in His hand!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:8

“But, beloved, be not ignorant
of this one thing, that one day
is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years
as one day.”
