Steadfast Love ~

God’s love is steadfast,
it is firm and unyielding
it’s constant and resolute
for it is unwavering.

God’s love never changes,
it’s unflinching and unmovable
it is undeterred and dead set
for it is unshakable.

God’s love is relentless,
it is decisive and unfailing
it is unfaltering and steady
for it is unchanging.

God’s love is fervent,
it’s passionate and untiring
it is sincere and relentless
for it is unwearying.

God’s love is steadfast,
it is devoted and dedicated
it is focused and committed
it can never be exaggerated!

Jeremiah 31:3

“The Lord hath appeared
of old unto me, saying,
Yea, I have loved thee
with an everlasting love:
therefore with lovingkindness
have I drawn thee.”

The Most Beautiful Love Song ~

There is a love song,
more beautiful than any other
lyrics so glorious
you will get lost in all its wonder.

The melody is soothing,
all your fears it will calm
to your soul it will be . . .
just like a healing balm.

It is a song sung,
with joy and gladness
over hearts awakening
from spiritual blindness.

The tune is gentle,
the rhythm is easy . . .
the message is offered
to everyone freely.

There is a joyous love song,
Jesus sings from above . .
whenever someone accepts
His life-saving love!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Zephaniah 3:17

“The Lord thy God in the midst
of thee is mighty; he will save,
he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love,
he will joy over thee with singing.”

Matthew 11:28

“Come unto me,
all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.”

Life Without Jesus ~

You may have breath,
your heart may beat
but, you don’t have Life
until Jesus you meet.

You may have sight,
your eyes may perceive
but, you don’t have Life
if in God you don’t believe.

You may have reason,
your ears may detect
but, you don’t have Life
if Jesus you reject.

You may have vitality,
your body may go
but, you don’t have Life
until Jesus you know.

You may have breath,
but, you don’t have Life
for without Jesus . . .
there’s only eternal strife!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:11-12

“And this is the record,
that God hath given to
us eternal life, and
this life is in his Son.

He that hath the Son hath life;
and he that hath not the Son
of God hath not life.”

First Hand Experience ~

Jesus offers rest,
from our weariness
something we all need
first hand to experience.

For when we seek,
the comfort He imparts
His peace will start flowing
straight into our hearts.

Jesus offers relief,
from our daily burdens
something we all need
to heed and to hearken.

For when we release,
the weight of our care
His calm will alleviate
the load that we bear.

Jesus offers comfort,
relief and rest . . .
to all who are burdened
weary or stressed!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:28-29

“Come unto me, all ye that
labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me; for I am meek
and lowly in heart: and ye
shall find rest unto your souls.”

Good Morning Quote ~02.07.19~


Seasons ~

I’ve suffered through seasons,
with pain too much to bear
periods of ongoing grief
where tears became my prayer.

I’ve sailed though seasons,
with carefree, untroubled days
weeks, months and even years
singing nothing but my praise.

I’ve struggled through seasons,
with doubt propelling me
to question why I believed
in the things I couldn’t see.

I’ve strolled through seasons,
with faith so unshakeable
my hope and trust in God
was clearly unbreakable.

I’ve been through many,
different kinds of seasons
and through them all I found
God had for each a reason!

~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 3:1

“To every thing
there is a season,
and a time to every
purpose under the heaven:”

The Loom of Gloom ~

When my heart feels hopeless,
when desperation sets in
as I become anxious from . . .
the turmoil twirling within.

I drop to my knees,
to my Father I plea
for His perfect peace
to wash over me.

When my mind feels helpless,
when gloom is on the loom
as I become anxious from . .
incoming thoughts of doom.

I drop to my knees,
to my Father I pray
for His Spirit of peace
to quickly come my way.

When my heart and mind,
feel hopeless and anxious
I drop to my knees . . .
and think on things precious!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8-9

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever
things are true, whatsoever
things are honest, whatsoever
things are just, whatsoever
things are pure, whatsoever
things are lovely, whatsoever
things are of good report;
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.

Those things, which ye have
both learned, and received,
and heard, and seen in me,
do: and the God of peace
shall be with you.”

Troubles Abounding ~

In this fallen world . . .
they’ll be troubles abounding
worries and cares
conceptually confounding.

But, Jesus said we’re not,
to fret or to despair
but to hand over to Him
our every single care.

Each day there’s enough,
troubles of its own
packed full of anxiety
from the things unknown.

But, Jesus insisted,
we are not to dread
nor are we to panic
but to trust Him instead.

In this fallen world,
we’ll have plenty of distress
but, Jesus makes it clear
over them we needn’t obsess!

~~~~~~~

John 16:33

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.”

A Prisoner of Hope ~

I’m a prisoner of hope,
for Jesus captured me
the day when from this world
He came and set me free.

I’m a prisoner of love.
for Jesus gave me life
the day when upon Himself
He took my worldly strife.

I am a prisoner of faith,
for Jesus convicted me
of the hidden sin in my life
that only He could see.

I’m a prisoner of trust,
for Jesus gave me light
the day when He filled me
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

I’m a prisoner of hope,
love, faith and trust . . .
for Jesus showed me
He is always fair and just!

~~~~~~~

Zechariah 9:12

Turn you to the strong hold,
ye prisoners of hope:
even to day do I declare
that I will render
double unto thee;

Staying In This Boat ~

I’m staying in this boat,
I’m going with the flow
for Jesus will steer me
in the way I should go.

I will not be afraid,
I’ve nothing to fear
for in this boat with me
Jesus too is here.

I’m sticking with this ship,
perish I will not . . .
with Jesus at my side
I’ve no dread of thought.

I’m not going to sink,
my faith will keep me afloat
there’s no way I’ll go down
for Jesus controls this boat.

I’m keeping with this boat,
in it I’m going to stay
for I know the winds and sea
Jesus’ commands will obey!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:23-27

“And when he was entered into a ship,
his disciples followed him.

And, behold, there arose a great tempest
in the sea, insomuch that the ship was
covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and
rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.

But the men marvelled, saying,
What manner of man is this,
that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Jesus Loves You Too ~

Jesus loves me,
I know this to be true
in fact I also know
He loves you too.

For in His Word,
He tells us why
how for our salvation
He was willing to die.

Jesus loves me,
I have no doubt
for in my life
I didn’t shut Him out.

I heard Him knock,
He came right in
forgave me at once
for all of my sin.

Jesus loves me,
He loves you too
so much that He gave
His life for you!

~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should
not perish, but have
everlasting life.”

A Needful Reminder ~

Sometimes I forget,
why I am so very blessed
why my heart is at ease
and my soul is at rest.

Then I remind myself,
as to why I feel this way
for, my hope is in Jesus
returning soon one day.

Sometimes I overlook,
why my spirit is so settled
why I am not surprised
by the works of the devil.

Then I remind myself,
as to why I am at peace
for until Jesus returns
evil will never cease.

Sometimes I forget,
just why I am so blessed
then I remind myself . . .
it’s on Jesus I do rest!

~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 4:6

“Better is an handful with quietness,
than both the hands full with travail
and vexation of spirit.

Sticky Note to God ~01.16.19~


Sticky Note From God ~01.15.19~


Just Chillin’ With My Lord ~

Today I am chillin’,
not going to get bothered
won’t let one little thing take
my peace from my Father.

I’m just going to kick back,
and rest here all the day
I’m not going to let anything
take our oneness away.

Today I’m taking it easy,
not going to get uptight
instead I will just soak in
all of Jesus’ calming light.

I’m just going to relax,
in the warmth of His love
and let His grace beam
down on me from above.

Today, I am chillin’
just me and my Lord
and if I fall asleep . . .
it’s not because I’m bored!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 4:8

“I will both lay me down in peace,
and sleep: for thou, Lord,
only makest me dwell in safety.”

Don’t Be Offended ~

When you find yourself,
for Jesus being mocked
and your faith in God
is always getting knocked.

Don’t be offended,
by what people might do
rather let God’s peace
be what they see in you.

When you find yourself,
endlessly put down
and you’re tormented
for the truth you found.

Don’t be taken back,
by what people say
rather let Jesus help you
to show them the way.

When you’re attacked,
for your Godly belief . . .
don’t let it cause you
one iota of grief!

~~~~~~~~

“The Lord shall fight for you,
and ye shall hold your peace.

God Sent Out His Word ~

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Word
so throughout the universe
by all it’d be heard.

He gave us His Light,
so we could understand
the plan for salvation
He had for all of man.

Our hearts are enlighten,
once His Word enters in
to help us to recognize
the cause of our sin.

As we read and we study,
the Light shines brighter
and our confessions to God
makes our burdens lighter.

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Light
simply so we’d keep . . .
heaven in our sight!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.”

Psalm 119:130

“The entrance of thy words
giveth light;
it giveth
understanding
unto the simple.”

Our Future Inheritance ~

There’s an inheritance,
for those who are meek
there’s a promise of peace
to those who God seek.

There’s a lasting promise,
of a future blessing
for those who keep on . . .
into Jesus pressing.

There’s a land of hope,
promised upon adoption
where delightfulness flows
without any disruption.

There’s an abundance,
of calm and tranquility
for those whose attitude
is one of humility.

There’s an inheritance,
of a future destination
a promise of peace . . .
in all of its perfection!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:11

“But the meek shall inherit
the earth; and shall delight
themselves in the abundance
of peace.”

A Quiet Place ~

Thank You Lord,
for giving me
a place to go
when I’m weary.

A quiet spot,
for my mind
and Your peace
to come in line.

Thank You Lord,
for meeting me
when to You
I run and flee.

A hidden retreat,
for my heart
so more grace
You can impart.

Thank You Lord,
for being there
when I bring You
my daily care!

is a strong tower:
the righteous runneth
