A New Creation Awaits ~

When you ask Jesus
into your heart
deliverance from sin
will spontaneously start.

When for your trespasses,
you ask Jesus to atone
living a sinful life
you’ll no longer condone.

When you ask Jesus,
to pardon your sin
regeneration
will promptly begin.

When for your sins,
you ask Jesus to forgive
your former way of life
you will not want to relive.

When you ask Jesus,
into your heart . . .
a new creation awaits
right from the start!

2 Corinthians 5:17

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!

Jesus is our Savior
we all need to believe
He’s the gift of God’s favor.

When Feeling Restless ~

 

When you are restless,
feeling uneasy
when your faith starts going
from strong to measly.

That is when you will need,
to surrender your unrest
to a God who is waiting
to give you perfect rest.

When you feel anxious,
and nervous are your thoughts
when fear starts to churn
your stomach into knots.

That is when you will need,
your heart and mind to adjust
in a God who is able
to strengthen your hope and trust.

When anxiousness comes,
making you feel restless
ask God to bring to you
His peace that is endless!

“Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.”

Never Forgotten ~

When your friends,
have moved on . . .
and your family
is all but gone.

Know you have,
a Friend around
one who’ll never
let you down.

When You find,
yourself all alone
sitting in . . .
your lonesome home.

Know there is someone,
who’ll never leave
and onto Him
you can always cleave.

When you feel as if,
you’ve been deserted
and with thought’s lonely
you’re being bombarded.

Know that you are,
never truly forgotten
for, Jesus forsakes not
those downtrodden!

No One Is Perfect ~

No one is perfect,
all have flaws
all need to obey
God’s ten laws.

All have sinned,
no one is undefiled
all need to be
by Jesus justified.

All have erred,
no one is pure
all need Jesus
their heart to cure.

All have wandered,
no one is yielding
all need Jesus
His Spirit’s sealing.

No one is perfect,
all have missed the mark
all would be without Jesus
left out in the dark!

Washed In The Blood ~

Jesus’ blood,
washed over me
now His love
has set me free.

Free from quilt,
free from blame
for, upon Himself
He took my shame.

Jesus’ blood,
flooded over me
flushing out sin’s
grit and debris.

At not a cost,
His grace I attained
now through faith
I’m no longer sin-stained.

Jesus’s blood,
washed over me
giving me a life . . .
now sin free!

sins in his own blood,

And hath made us kings
and priests unto God
and his Father;
to him be glory
and dominion
for ever and ever.”
Amen.

Eternally Secured ~

You may try,
but, I can’t be moved
for my soul to Jesus
is irreversibly glued.

You may attempt,
but, I can’t be pried
for my heart to Jesus
is indefinitely tied.

You may endeavor,
but, I won’t be persuaded
for my life to Jesus
is securely barricaded.

You may aspire,
but, I cannot be lured
for my mind to Jesus
is eternally secured.

You may try,
every trick in the book
but my soul to Jesus . . .
is permanently hooked!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 62:1-2

“Truly my soul waiteth upon God:
from him cometh my salvation.
“He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.”

don’t vacillate
your prayers to God
do captivate.

For whatever we need,
God promises to supply
so stop questioning Him
with if, but and why.

Don’t be shy,
don’t be timid
let your prayers
to God be lifted!

Sticky Note From God ~08.28.18~


A Warm Summer Day ~

Give me a warm summer day,
a cool breeze on my face
and I’ll tell you all about . . .
my Father’s mercy and grace.

For when I’m basking in,
the warmth of His love
I find myself engulfed
in His peace from above.

Give me a long lazy day,
with nothing else to do
and I’ll tell you just how
Jesus making all things new.

For when I’m just chilling,
His favor consumes me
and all I can think about
are the things I can’t see.

Give me a warm summer day,
far from the heat of things
and I’ll tell you all about . . .
the hope my Savior brings!

~~~~~~~~

“Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth,
where thou feedest, where thou makest
thy flock to rest at noon:

Walk By Faith ~

Walking by faith,
and not on feeling
will have us on . . .
our knees kneeling.

For when we see,
joy is a choice
whatever our care
we will rejoice.

Walking by faith,
and not on emotion
sets the Holy Spirit’s
power into motion.

For when we discover,
no matter our worry
His strength will give us
a thankful journey.

Walking by faith,
to know God’s will
cannot our praises
stop or still!

On The Path To Heaven ~

Lord may Your steps,
establish my pathway
so I may follow You
each and every day.

Take me to places,
where You want me go
so the Life and Truth
I may live and know.

Lord, take these feet of clay,
shake from them the dust
so I may leave footsteps
of faith, hope and trust.

Guide me as I travel,
on this sparsely walked road
so I may not be lured away
when heavy is my load.

Lord, may Your steps,
lead and guide me
so on the path to heaven . . .
I can walk along with Thee!

~~~~~~

“Righteousness shall
go before him;
and shall set us

God’s Reach ~

There is not a life,
that God can’t save
there’s nothing done
that to Him is so grave.

There is not an eye,
that God can’t open
there’s none so blind
that He can’t put hope in.

There is not an ear,
that God can’t unseal
there’s none so deaf
that He can’t heal.

There is not a heart,
that God can’t affect
there’s none so cold
that He can’t connect.

There is not a soul,
that God’s can’t reach
there’s not a life . . .
that He can’t teach!

~~~~~~~~

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened,
that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy
that it cannot hear:”

God’s Greater Purpose ~

God’s purpose is greater,
than this one of mine
for His intentions are . . .
of an eternal design.

God’s plans are smarter,
than the ones I make
for His concepts are . . .
for my soul’s own fate.

God’s ways are better,
than the ones I attempt
for His commands are . . .
righteously correct.

God’s directions are wiser,
than the ones I seek
for His instructions are . . .
to make me wise and meek.

God’s greater purpose,
I’ve come to believe . . .
for without His Son
grace I’d never receive!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:9

“Who hath saved us,
and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose
and grace, which was given us
in Christ Jesus before the world began,”

Seek God While It’s Early ~

In the morning hours,
when all is quiet and still
seek God and you’ll find
what is for you His will.

Ask Him for the wisdom,
as you commence your day
and He will show you
the righteousness of His way.

In the early light,
when all is calm and silent
seek God with a heart
on Him trusting and reliant.

Ask Him to show you,
the plans He has for you
inquire of Him guidance
in all His has for you to do.

In the morning hours,
seek God while it’s still dawn
and throughout the day  . . .
you’ll find yourself Spirit drawn!

~~~~~~

Psalm 143:8

“Cause me to hear thy
lovingkindness in the morning;
for in thee do I trust:
cause me to know the way
wherein I should walk;
for I lift up my soul unto thee.”

I Knocked, Jesus Opened ~

I knocked,
He opened the door
then my life
Jesus began to explore.

I heard,
once Jesus was in
Him telling me
all about my sin.

I asked,
what I needed to do
Jesus answered
a holy life pursue.

I knew,
I needed His grace
by the reflection
I saw on Jesus’ face.

I sought,
a new life I found
and now by faith
I’m heaven bound!

~~~~~~

“Ask, and it shall be given you;

Jesus, My Rock ~

Jesus, my Rock
my salvation, my refuge
with You there is peace
under worries deluge.

You are my strength,
when my own is spent
in You there’s safety
from all that torments.

My God, My Rock,
shield me from evil
protect me from
the world’s upheaval.

Be my earthly guide,
let me not fall prey
to satan’s deceitfulness
and his unrighteous way.

Jesus, My Rock,
on You I will depend
to keep me sheltered
until You come again!
