Keep On Persisting On ~

Faith feeling sluggish,
got no get up and go
are you starting to get
for the race too slow?

Well you need to continue,
to keep on keeping on . . .
and on Jesus’ strength
persist drawing upon.

Trust feels lacking,
lost that staying power
are you beginning to sense
your hope has soured?

Well you need to continue,
to keep on persisting on . . .
and on God’s holy might
maintain drawing upon.

Is your faith sluggish,
is your trust listless . . .
well keep on holding on
to the life ~ righteous!

1 Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good
profession before many witnesses.

Gifts Intertwined ~

Our spiritual gifts,
God’s given to us
and in them we need
to put all our trust.

He gave various talents,
for us to use side by side
but with the same Spirit
we are all occupied.

God’s given us strengths,
different levels of skill
and we must all seek
what for them is His will.

He has bestowed on us,
a variety of abilities
aptitudes filled with . . .
all kinds of capabilities.

God’s given us gifts,
according to His design
to use for His glory . . .
when them we combine!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 12:4-6

Now there are diversities of gifts,
but the same Spirit.

And there are differences of
administrations, but the same Lord.

And there are diversities of
operations, but it is the same
God which worketh all in all.

When Fear Chases You ~

When fear chases you,
before you get caught
there is a refuge . . .
for you God has got.

It’s a place of safety,
for you to run into
where dread and panic
cannot overtake you.

When your heart starts,
frantically racing
and your hands begin
violently shaking.

Run to the fortress,
of peace and trust
for it is where God
promises to meet us.

Before fear chases you,
into a dreadful fright
into God’s shelter . . .
run with all your might!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1-2

“He that dwelleth in the
secret place of the most
High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord,
He is my refuge and my
fortress: my God;
in him will I trust.”

Walking In the Spirit ~

When you walk in the Spirit,
you will live in Jesus’ light
all things will be clearer
everything will look bright.

For the Spirit will change you,
your mind He will capture
fill it with secure thoughts
of the upcoming rapture.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll have a worldly guide
someone who will help you
to keep faith in your stride.

For the Spirit will lead you,
on the path of righteousness
helping you to live a life
in the power of faithfulness.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll repel the darkness
for the Light of Jesus . . .
will help keep you sinless!

in the Spirit,
let us also walk

Order In The House ~

If we are to have,
order in the house
our understanding
we need to rouse.

For we need to build,
upon Godly wisdom
keeping heaven
right within our vision.

Then our homes,
will be full of pleasure
as we come to realize
our eternal treasure.

If we are to have,
our house in order
each room needs to be
without a border.

For when our walls,
come tumbling down
inside our hearts
our Savior is found!

~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 24:3

“Through wisdom is an house builded;
and by understanding it is established:”

A Holy Fight ~

If we’re to be,
for Jesus a light
we must be ready
evil to fight.

For the darkness hates,
all that is right
and will stop at nothing
to douse our light.

If we’re to be,
for Jesus the salt
we must be prepared
for the world’s assault.

For the darkness hates,
all that is sound
and will do anything
to hold its ground.

If we’re to be for Jesus,
the salt and the light . . .
then we must be prepared
for a holy fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.

Bold As Lions ~

Bold as lions,
are those who are righteous
they’ve nothing to fear
for they are virtuous.

Their conscience is clear,
they’ve no reason to doubt
for from the curse of darkness
they have found their way out.

Brave as lions,
are those who are Godly
they’ve nothing to dread
for they’ve ceased their folly.

Their hearts are right,
their evilness was replaced
with the love and mercy
of their Savior’s grace.

Bold and brave,
like lions are we . . .
for to our wicked ways
we were able to flee!

~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 28:1

The wicked flee when
no man pursueth:
but the righteous are
bold as a lion.”

Holding On Fast ~

Though your situation,
may seem dire today
hold fast until tomorrow . . .
for God will make a way.

Though your circumstance,
may seem bleak today
hold fast until tomorrow . . .
for help is coming your way.

Though your predicament,
may make you weak today
hold fast until tomorrow . . .
for strength is on its way.

Though your condition,
may be overwhelming today
hold fast until tomorrow . . .
for clarity will come your way.

Though today you maybe weak,
tomorrow you’ll be strong
so just hold fast until . . .
God’s power comes along!

Hebrews 10:23

“Let us hold fast the profession
of our faith without wavering;
(for he is faithful that promised;)

Mountain Moving ~

God gave me this mountain,
and told me to believe . . .
His strength and might
from Him I would receive.

So, I gathered up my faith,
though I admit it was small
compared to this mountain
that seemed seven-miles tall.

I looked at the obstacles,
I knew were in my way
and then I paraphrased
what Jesus had to say . . .

If you do not doubt,
you can save a lot of time
and pick that mountain up
instead of making the climb.

So, I mustered up the power,
that Jesus left for me . . .
picked that mountain up
and now I’m burden free!

~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a
grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.”

Feet Like That Of A Deer ~

Oh, to have feet,
like that of a deer
I’d be able to move
without having fear.

I could then scale,
whatever the height
for I would have . . .
God’s power and might.

Oh, to have feet,
like that of a doe
I would not dread
I would just go.

I could then climb,
whatever the distance
for I’d have God’s strength
when met with resistance.

Oh, to have feet,
willing to in God trust
my legs would be . . .
inclined to adjust!

~~~~~~~~~

Habakkuk 3:19

“The Lord God is my strength,
and he will make my feet
like hinds’ feet, and he
will make me to walk upon
mine high places.”

Good Morning Quote ~02.18.19~


Shake Me Up Lord ~

Shake me up Lord,
loosen up in me
the strength to speak
boldly about Thee.

Arouse me up Lord,
from my idle sleep
so I can encourage
more of Your sheep.

Fire me up Lord,
ignite in me Your power
so I may be Spirit filled
my every waken hour.

Charge me up Lord,
spark in me Your might
so I can be for You
truth’s illuminating light.

Shake me up Lord,
generate in me a flame
so on my lips . . .
will always be Your name!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:31

“And when they had prayed,
the place was shaken where
they were assembled together;
and they were all filled with
the Holy Ghost, and they spake
the word of God with boldness.”

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.”

Sticky Note From God ~02.07.19~


Sticky Note From God ~02.04.19~


We All Have Bouts ~

We all have difficulties,
some frailties, some weakness
we all have bouts . . .
of despair and bleakness.

We all have limitations,
some mental, some physical
we all have bouts . . .
of feeling measly pitiful.

We all have challenges,
some prolonged, some brief
we all have bouts . . .
of sadness and grief.

We all have deficiencies,
some flaws, some cracks
we all have bouts . . .
of feeling out of whack.

But we who have Jesus,
all things can overcome
because we know just where
our power comes from!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

Passionately Insatiable ~

Lord let me not get,
too old to keep learning
keep my eagerness
for knowledge burning.

Let me not become,
too comfortable
thinking I am . . .
oh, so knowledgeable.

Lord, let me continue,
to keep on growing
may I never grow tired
of more of You knowing.

Let me not be,
content in my ways
so I may gain wisdom
for the rest of my days.

Lord let me not get,
too old and lackadaisical
keep my knowledge for You
passionately insatiable!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

“But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.
To him be glory
both now and for ever.”
Amen.

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;

Old Creature Gone ~

Old creature gone,
exchanged for the new
the day Lord, Jesus
we came to follow You.

Old dirty habits,
old thoughts and ways
redeemed for the new
for the rest of our days.

Old bitter resentment,
old tempers and demands
substituted for the new
as we obey Your commands.

Old greedy desires,
old habits and lusts
converted for the new
when we began to trust.

Old creature gone,
exchanged for the new
all because Lord, Jesus
we’re beholden to You!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in
Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold,
all things are become new.

A Thread of Hope ~

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for doubt and fear
not to breed.

For all it takes,
is one little strand
for God’s power
to be in your hand.

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for trust and faith
to be freed.

For all it asks,
is for you to believe
God’s mighty strength
you will receive.

A thread of hope,
is all you need
for faith to grow
from a mustard seed!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

“And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, ye shall say
unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.

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.”

May You Be At Peace ~

May you be at peace,
all times, in every way
may you take heart knowing
God sends new mercies each day.

May you be anxious for naught,
nor about one single thing
may you feel the calming
only a Savior can bring.

May your mind be fixed,
on a God worth trusting
may you find your tranquility
in things everlasting.

May you lie down and sleep,
with dreams of green pastures
may you find peace
as your heart Jesus captures!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 3:16

“Now the Lord of peace himself
give you peace always by all means.
The Lord be with you all.

countenance upon thee,
and give thee peace.

Seek To Please God ~

When you seek to please,
God in all you do
nothing people say
will phase or daze you.

You will walk upright,
in a worthy manner
you will become known
as that faithful runner.

You won’t pay attention,
to what people may think
to their cruel ridicule
you won’t even blink.

You will stand up tall,
to evil you’ll not cower
for you know you’re filled
with God’s almighty power

When you seek to please,
God first in your life . . .
what others say or do
won’t cause you any strife!

~~~~~~

Galatians 1:10

” For do I now persuade men, or God?
or do I seek to please men?
for if I yet pleased men,
I should not be the servant of Christ.”

I Must Admit ~

I admit . . .
I am old-fashioned
for Jesus is
my one true passion.

I know people think,
I am out of it
when I say I’m filled
with His spirit.

I acknowledge,
I’m old-school
for I let Jesus
my heart rule.

I know people feel,
I’m a dinosaur
for holy living
I still stand up for.

I accept . . .
what they think of me
for still believing in
what I can’t see!

~~~~~~~

“Study to shew thyself approved
unto God, a workman that needeth
not to be ashamed, rightly dividing
the word of truth.”
