Sticky Note to God ~06.28.19~

May I Soon Not Forget ~

Lord, may I not soon forget,
the favors You’ve granted me
nor how You made a path . . .
across my own Red Sea.

May my praises for You,
keep me humble all my days
may I not forget to walk
and follow all Your ways.

Lord, may I not complain,
nor forget Your mighty deeds
may I always acknowledge
it’s You who supplies my needs.

May my praise rise each day,
and lay upon my lips at night
may I not forget Your counsel
nor the pillars of Your light.

Lord, may I not forget,
the works of Your mighty hand
nor how a path for me . . .
You made to the promised land!

Psalm 106:13-14

“They soon forgat his works; they waited not
for his counsel: But lusted exceedingly in the
wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.”

Sticky Note From God ~12.11.18~


Bold Praise ~

I can’t carry a tune,
don’t have a great voice
but for my Savior
I still sing and rejoice.

I don’t know the melody,
haven’t got me the ear
but it doesn’t stop God
my praises to hear.

I can’t read the music,
don’t recognize the chords
but I still carry on
worshiping my Lord.

I don’t have the rhythm,
can’t understand the beat
but I keep on rejoicing
at my Savior’s feet.

I can’t carry a tune,
a note I can’t hold
but, my praise to God
is still always bold!

~~~~~

Psalm 105:2

Sing unto him,
sing psalms unto him:
talk ye of all his
wondrous works.”

Beyond Thanksgiving’s Dinner ~

Lord, give me gratitude,
sustaining and stable
not just for the yummy food
on today’s Thanksgiving table.

Let me give my thanks,
for all of Your blessings
not just for the yams
and corn bread dressing.

Let me be thankful,
to You for all things
not just for my favorite
crispy turkey wings.

Let me be grateful,
for all You have given
not just for the silver
and fancy table linen.

Lord, let me be appreciative,
for the bounty on my plate
not just for tonight’s dinner
but for each new one I’ll create!

Psalm 106:1

“Praise ye the Lord.
O give thanks unto the Lord;
for he is good:
for his mercy endureth
for ever.”

Grow Your Gratitude ~

Grow your gratitude,
it will increase your praise
then what comes your way
you will not be phased.

For God wants us to be,
for all things grateful
and then our praise to Him
will become a daily staple.

Grow your thankfulness,
it won’t disappoint you
then whatever God sends
you’ll be able to get through.

For God desires of us,
our earnest of devotions
not just the kind we give
when going through the motions.

Grow your thanksgiving,
gratefulness you will raise
so no matter what life brings
you’ll still offer God your praise!

Morning Praise ~

When the morning comes,
as the sun rises above
sing your praise to the Lord
for His mercy and His love.

Let Him know you’ll need,
the strength of His power
right upon the start
of your waking hour.

When the new day breaks,
as the sun shows its bright face
thank and praise the Lord
for His life-saving grace.

Let Him know how much,
you count on Him to be
a refuge and a defense
for the day ahead of thee.

When the morning dew,
catches its first beam of light
let your praises to the Lord
fill you with His holy might!

~~~~~

Psalm 59:16

“But I will sing of thy power;
yea, I will sing aloud of thy
mercy in the morning:
for thou hast been my
defence and refuge in
the day of my trouble.

We Who Have True Faith ~

We who have true faith,
know God’s trustworthy
no matter what comes our way
He is always praiseworthy.

For we know He has for us,
only His absolute best

through every trial and test.

We who have true trust,
know God will never leave
how all things are possible
because Jesus we believe.

For we know the Holy Spirit,
daily equips us for the fight
filling us with the power
of His awesome holy might.

We who have true faith,
know that God is deserving
and our thanksgiving to Him
we constantly are serving!

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.”

Anchored in Hope ~

A life anchored in hope,
is one worth living
it brings about faith
praise and thanksgiving.

It’s a life full of trust,
in God for all things
it’s a life secure
under His faithful wings.

A life rooted in Jesus,
is one that is bound
it lives not in fear
for its mind is sound.

It’s a life with meaning,
purpose and direction
it’s a life striving
for godly perfection.

A life anchored in hope,
is one that’s submitted
its heart to Jesus . . .
is fully committed!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 6:19

“Which hope we have as an
anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into
that within the veil;”

Always Something To Be Thankful For ~

There is always something,
to be thankful for
all you have to do . . .
is be willing to explore.

If you will open up,
your heart and your mind
all kinds of blessings
you will be able to find.

Some are so small,
they don’t get our attention
but, for each of them
God has a good intention.

Some are so obvious,
you don’t need to search far
for everyone can see them
from right where they are.

Whether our blessings
are big or if they are small
we need to be thankful . . .
to God who supplies them all.

Yes, there’s always something,
for us to be thankful for
and we need to be grateful
when God sends us more!

Giving thanks always

Make a Joyful Noise ~

Come all my friends,
come one and all . . .
let’s gather together
and let our praise fall.

Let’s make a noise,
to God that’s joyful
let’s sing why we are
thankful and hopeful.

Let’s loudly proclaim,
our love for Him
let’s tell why our cups
overflow from the brim

Let’s sing of our salvation,
the Rock of our strength
lets not keep our elation
from others at arms-length.

Come all my friends,
let us all assemble
so to the world . . .
Jesus we may resemble!

~~~~~~~~

“Speaking to yourselves
in psalms and hymns
and spiritual songs,
singing and making

to the Lord;”

Thankful In Every Season ~

You don’t need a season,
to be thankful . . .
every day of the year
you can be grateful.

You can all year-long,
bless God with your praise
your gratitude to Him
you can daily raise.

It doesn’t have to be,
just on Thanksgiving day
your gratitude to God
you can always display.

You can sing anytime,
to Him your appreciation
it does not have to be . . .
a holiday celebration.

Whether you are rich,
or if you may be poor
for and in everything
let your thanksgivings pour.

You can be thankful,
every day of the year
for your gratefulness . . .
God always wants to hear!

“Blessed be the Lord,
who daily loadeth us
with benefits,

our salvation. Selah.”
