A Long As We Exist ~

Lord, show us Your paths,
as long as we exist . . .
to Your righteous ways
may we never resist.

Teach us to be still,
until the timing is right
give us the strength
in the battles we fight.

Let us not be impatient,
til in the future we meet
guide each and every step
of our oft stumbling feet.

Keep us from becoming,
ever fearful and afraid
let us not limit You
so we’ll not be dismayed.

Lord, show us Your Ways,
reveal to us Your plans . . .
so we may come to rest
in Your almighty hands!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:7a

Rest in the Lord,
and wait patiently
for him:

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not;
for I am with thee:
be not dismayed;
for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand
of my righteousness.

A Heart Long- Suffering ~

A heart long-suffering,
dosen’t strike back
it doesn’t let its lips
loosely snap or smack.

It doesn’t get riled up,
when insults are thrown
it know it is wise
to hold onto its own.

A mind long-tempered,
knows it needs to cool off
though others may choose
at it to mock and scoff.

It’s doesn’t spout out,
the same insults
instead it seeks
more peaceful results.

A life long-suffering,
is one that knows
God’s patience with them
they too need to show!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:2

With all lowliness and meekness,
with longsuffering,
forbearing one another in love;

Galatians 5.22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is
love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against
such there is no law.”

A Time To Let God ~

A time for patience,
and for some rest
a time to let God do . . .
what He knows is best.

A time for His Spirit,
to lead from above
a time to linger . . .
and abide in His love.

A time for endurance,
to run the good race
a time to stop running
and abound in His grace.

A time for calmness,
when composure is gone
a time to discover
how to be closer drawn.

A time to be quiet,
to sit and be still
a time to actively seek
what is God’s perfect will.

A time for silence,
of both mind and heart
a time for God only . . .
nothing keeping us apart.

A time to lie down,
in pastures green
a time to be protected
under His almighty wing.

A time to know and believe,
He’ll never leave or forsake
a time for God . . .
we all need to make!

Love Is ~

Love bears all things,
it is not rude
it doesn’t possess
an arrogant mood.

For it is patient,
it is also kind
it does not boast
or have a lofty mind.

Love believes all things,
it seeks the truth
it is not harsh
nor is it uncouth.

For it’s not irritable,
it is instead patient
it holds no bitterness
for it is diligent.

Love endures all things,
it rejoices not in evil
it see right through
the tricks of the devil.

For it understands,
it has wisdom
it will not bow down
to a worldview system.

Love hopes all things,
it holds on fast . . .
it knows these times
will not forever last!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient and kind;
love does not envy or boast;
it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.

Waiting Patiently ~

If were to remain,
and wait patiently
we must be willing
to do so obediently.

For a heart anxious,
is one restless
and it often feels
dreary and listless.

If were to remain,
and wait graciously
we must be willing
to do so expectantly.

For a mind fretful,
is one hopeless
and it often feels
weak and helpless.

If we’re to remain,
hopeful and upbeat
we cannot let man
our faith deplete!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:7

Rest in the Lord,
and wait patiently for him:
fret not thyself because of
him who prospereth in his way,
because of the man who bringeth
wicked devices to pass.

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.

Good Morning Quote ~01.23.22~


Our Realities ~

Sometimes our realities,
leaves us doubting . . .
sometimes they cause us
for relief shouting.

But, if we’re to trust God,
we must do so patiently
and wait for His answers
with a faith steadfastly.

Sometimes our situations,
leaves us questioning . . .
sometimes they leave us
with fearfulness, trembling.

But, if we’re to believe Jesus,
our burdens came to bear
then we will find His peace
as we give Him our care.

Sometimes our challenges,
leaves us wondering . . .
but, then God lets us know
He is never slumbering!

Behold, he that keepeth

A Soul Conquering~

It takes courage,
a spirit willing to go the length
it takes confidence
letting God supply the strength.

It takes commitment,
a determination to do God’s will
it takes patience
a willingness to wait and be still.

It takes persistence,
a resolve to keep pressing on
it takes diligence
for the faithful race to be won.

It takes perseverance,
a heart willing to go the distance
it takes a dedicated mind
able to handle the resistance.

It takes focus,
eyes always kept on the goal
it takes Jesus . . .
to have a conquering soul!

Philippians 3:14

I press toward
the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God

Hebrews 12:1-2

Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses, let us lay
aside every weight, and the sin
which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience
the race that is set before us,

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.

James 5:7-8


God Waste’s Nothing ~

God waste’s nothing,
not the hurt, not the pain
He uses everything . . .
for His purpose, for our gain.

He knows the how’s,
to all of our why’s . . .
for He sees everything
through wiser eyes.

God squanders nothing,
not the grief, not the sorrow
He knows new mercy
will come with tomorrow.

He knows the what’s,
to all of our who’s . . .
He knows it is Him
that we must choose.

God waste’s nothing,
not the trials, not the tests
He knows His plans . . .
are always for our best!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:2-4

My brethren, count it all joy
when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying

But let patience have her
perfect work, that ye may be
perfect and entire, wanting nothing

All for Joy ~

Count it all for joy,
each trial you go through
give it not a second thought
then watch what God will do.

Count it all for joy,
when tested for your belief
patience will be your reward
and His peace your relief.

Count it all for joy,
as He performs His work in you
let His perfection complete
and make you someone new.

Count it all for joy,
lest you be tossed about
seek by faith all your needs
and in God never doubt.

Count it all for joy,
for His wisdom is yours to gain
ask believing without fear
and in your life He will reign.

Count it all for joy,
no matter your despair
let His love fill you up . . .
and your life He’ll repair!

~~~~~~

James 1:2-3

“My brethren, count it all joy

Love Is Blind ~

Love is patient,
it doesn’t keep score
when it’s insulted
it doesn’t get sore.

Love isn’t self-centered,
it isn’t conceited
when it is put down
it isn’t defeated.

Love is kind,
it doesn’t get mad
when disappointed
is doesn’t get sad.

Love isn’t self-seeking
it isn’t disturbed
when it’s agitated
it isn’t perturbed.

Love is patient,
love is kind . . .
to other’s faults
love is blind!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

“Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; charity
envieth not; charity
vaunteth not itself,
is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked,
thinketh no evil;”

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.

to your Father pleasing

You Can Do It ~

You can be an endurer,
you can persist
if to the world’s wicked ways
you will resist.

You can be an overcomer,
you can prevail
if you don’t let satan’s arrows
your faith impale.

You can be an achiever,
you can win
if you run away from
all forms of sin.

You can be an opposer,
you can contend
if you don’t conform
or be the world’s friend.

You can do it,
you can win the race . . .
just keep looking to Jesus
for assurance and grace!

~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1-2

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed
about with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience the race
that is set before us,

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.”

Let Your Gentleness Ooze ~

When imperfections,
in others you see
don’t call them out
instead, like Jesus be.

For in your humility,
they’ll see their lack of
and for what’s not said
will be noted out of love.

When someone’s pride,
gets in your face
don’t go off on them
instead, show some grace.

For in your patience,
they will start to find
how their self-importance
rules their heart and mind.

When your own faults,
are pointed out to you
let it be your gentleness . . .
that oozes through!

If We Are to Have Hope ~

 

If we are to have hope,
in what we can’t see
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t trust more in Thee?

If we are to have patience,
while for Your return we await
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep to the straight gate?

If we are to have faith,
that Your Kingdom is coming
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep faithfully running?

If we are to have perseverance,
even though You may tarry
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t our own cross carry?

If we are to have hope,
if we are to trust and believe
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep our eyes on Thee?
