Wait For It ~

God is not asking you,
to go figure things out
He’s asking you to wait . . .
without having any doubt.

For He already has,
an answer to your prayer
now He wants you to be
to His directions aware.

God is not saying to you,
to run off and go and fix it
He’s telling you to be still . . .
so you can hear His Spirit.

When He’s ready Your answer,
He will stamp on it the date
now He’s asking you to have
the courage to sit and wait

God is not asking you,
to rush off and go do
He’s saying wait for it . . .
and He’ll show you how to!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:14

Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait, I say,
on the Lord.

Sometimes When I Pray ~

Sometimes when I pray,
it feels like God’s far away
it’s as if He wasn’t there at all
when upon His name I call.

So I cry out even more,
as my requests I implore
hoping God will hear me
as to Him I make my plea.

Sometimes when I pray,
something gets in the way
it’s as if God can’t receive
the prayers to Him I leave.

The silence is deafening,
leaving me wondering
does God really bend His ear
so my prayers He can hear.

Sometimes when I pray,
it’s I, not God who is far away . . .
and I cannot hear His replies
to my beseeching cries!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 17:6

I have called upon thee,
for thou wilt hear me,
O God: incline thine ear
unto me, and hear my speech.

Matthew 6:10


Oh, Blessed Hope ~

Oh, blessed hope,
drench my soul
in these days . . .
of great turmoil.

Let me see,
Thy glory coming
oh, blessed hope
my heart keep flooding.

Oh, blessed hope,
I pray fervently
in these times
of great uncertainty.

Let me hear,
the trump sounding
oh, blessed hope
heaven bounding.

Oh, blessed hope,
until You appear . . .
bring more hope
to those who fear!

~~~~~~~~

Titus 2:13

Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our
Saviour Jesus Christ;

Waiting For Answers ~

When for answers,
I have to sit and wait
I find with myself . . .
having a great debate.

I questions if it’s just,
my will I’m praying for
or will I wait for God
to open the right door.

When for feedback,
I have to wait to hear
I listen for God . . .
to whisper in my ear.

I start to think if it’s just,
myself I’m talking to
or is God telling me . . .
what I should go and do.

When for answers,
God has me waiting
I have learned it’s not . . .
worth my debating!

Lamentations 3:25


Into The Light Of Day ~

When all around me,
is cold and bleak . . .
when I’m feeling frail
fragile and weak.

I pick up my Bible,
to warm up my soul
knowing it’s Words
my heart will console.

When all around me,
is dark and dim . . .
when I’m feeling faint
helpless and grim.

I read the Scriptures,
to Lighten my spirits
knowing they’ll give me
hope without limits.

When all around me,
is cold, dark and gray . . .
God’s Word turns the night
into the Light of day!

When God You Ask ~

When you ask God,
to take over control
make sure you give Him
your whole heart and soul.

For without given Him,
your complete trust . . .
your faith cannot remain
in Him rich and robust.

When you ask Jesus,
to be Lord of your life
you must give to Him
all your worldly strife.

For if you want Him,
to lead and guide you
your worries and cares
you must cast on Him too.

When God you ask,
in Jesus’ name believe
and all of His answers . . .
you will surely receive!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 21:22

And all things,
whatsoever ye
shall ask in prayer,
believing, ye shall
receive

When God Sends Trials ~

When God sends us,
trials along our way
on our knees we need
to get down and pray.

For we will need,
a lot of His strength
so to keep our fear
at arm’s length.

When God delivers,
what to us is a blow
to the throne of grace
we need to at once go.

For we need not panic,
or think that it’s odd
for these flaming testings
to come from God.

When God sends us,
trials fiery and blazing
just think about the joy
for you that is awaiting!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:12-13

Beloved, think it not strange
concerning the fiery trial
which is to try you, as though
some strange thing happened
unto you:

But rejoice, inasmuch
as ye are partakers of
Christ’s sufferings;
that, when his glory
shall be revealed,
ye may be glad also
with exceeding joy.

Hebrews 4:16


Be Joyful and Prayerful ~

Be joyful in hope,
be faithful in prayer
don’t forget to give . . .
Jesus your care.

For to be joyful,
when troubles increase
will make your anxiety
decline and decrease.

Be patient in affliction,
be steadfast and firm
don’t forget to give . . .
Jesus your concern.

For to be diligent,
when problems arise
will help you to keep
your eyes on the prize.

Be joyful and prayerful,
be so ever patient too
and never forget . . .
how much Jesus loves you!

Romans 12:12

Rejoicing in hope;

Fraught With Worry ~

Often we find our hearts,
are fraught with worry
our thoughts turn into . . .
a nervous, swirling flurry.

We fret and we fuss,
over what we can’t control
until fear becomes . . .
embedded into our soul.

Often we find our minds,
are overwhelmed by dread
our thinking gets clouded . . .
by the anxiety in our head.

We get so caught up in,
our fearful trepidation
until fear’s spiny fingers . . .
takes over our circulation.

Often we find our hearts,
letting worry into our mind
keeping us from God’s peace
to discover or to find!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication
with thanksgiving
let your requests be made
known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds through Christ Jesus.

Sticky Note From God ~10.26.20~

Psalm 145:18-19


When Bad News Comes ~

When bad news,
I am given
to my knees
I am driven.

I pray to God,
for a heart firm
til the report
runs its term.

Whenever I hear,
things disturbing
I pray to God
to remain trusting.

I pray my faith,
will stay sturdy
so I won’t be
flanked by worry.

When bad news,
I hear and receive . . .
fearful I’m not
for in God I believe!

Psalm 112:7

He shall not be afraid
of evil tidings:
his heart is fixed,

In The Midst Of A Storm ~

In the midst of a storm,
Jesus is there . . .
He is ready to take
our fear, our care.

He hears our cries,
for His aid and relief
His ready to help us with
our lingering disbelief.

In the middle of the turmoil,
Jesus is waiting . . .
He is able to ease
our apprehensions grating.

He hears our lamenting,
our weeping and wailings
for He understands . . .
our weaknesses and failings.

In the midst of a storm,
Jesus is right there . . .
in the center of its eye
He hears our every prayer!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:26-27

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!

God Knows Your Heart ~

God knows your heart,
better than you . . .
He knows what your thinking
before even you do.

Before to Him you call out,
He knows what you’ll say
before you can form the words
He knows what you’ll pray.

God knows your mind,
better then you . . .
He knows your every thought
even before you do.

Before to Him you make a plea,
He knows what will be said
before you can make a sentence
He knows what’s in your head.

God know your heart,
He knows your mind too . . .
that is why He is always
thinking ahead of you!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 65:24

And it shall come to pass,
that before they call,
I will answer; and while
they are yet speaking,
I will hear.

It’s Easy To Say ~

It’s easy for people to say,
give Jesus your every care
it’s easy for them to relay
I’ll say for you a daily prayer.

But, when they leave,
they sometimes forget
to pass on to God
what has you so upset.

It’s easy for people to say,
I will pray for you . . .
but, isn’t always something
they go off and really do.

For they get distracted,
with the busyness of life
and soon forget to pray
for your daily strife.

It’s easy for people to say,
they will pray for you. . .
so, if these words you speak
make sure you go and do!

I exhort therefore, that,
first of all, supplications,

1 Timothy 2:5


Someone To Talk To ~

Whenever I want to talk,
I have me a loyal Friend
He is someone always . . .
on whom I can depend.

Our conversations are,
exciting and uplifting
He always lets me know
if from Him I’m drifting.

We discuss many things,
be at night or in the day
He is always ready . . .
to hear what I’ve to say.

I can tell Him anything,
there is no holding back
He encourages me
when faith in Him I lack.

I have me a special Friend,
with whom I can always talk
whenever I need advice . . .
I just go with Jesus for a walk!

Philippians 3:20

For our conversation is in heaven;
from whence also we look for the
Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Awake I Lay ~

Sometimes in bed,
I lay awake . . .
and I think about
all the heartbreak.

The sorrow, the loss,
of all who don’t believe
and I pray that Jesus
they would receive.

Sometimes in bed,
I lay sleepless . . .
and think about
all the bleakness.

The malice, the violence,
of all who darkness sow
and I pray that Jesus
they would come to know.

Sometimes in bed,
awake I lay . . .
and I pray more lives
would see the Way!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:44

But I say unto you,
Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you,
do good to them
that hate you,
and pray for them which
despitefully use you,
and persecute you;

Pray For Me Jesus ~

Pray for me Jesus,
plea for my needs
pray my faith grows
from that mustard seed.

Pray for my worries,
pray for my cares
pray when I can’t . . .
say my own prayers.

Pray for my heart,
petition for my mind
pray my trust in You
I’ll continue to find.

Pray for my spirit,
pray for my soul
pray my life to You
I will give control.

Pray for me Jesus,
on my behalf plea . . .
when words I can’t form
meditate Lord for me!

Sticky Note From God ~06.21.20~

1 John 5:14-15


Answers Delayed~

Sometimes when we pray,
we don’t want any delay
to our pleas we want . . .
God to answer right away.

But as the days go by,
our tears do not dry
and we start to question
oh God, oh God, why.

Our heart grows faint,
the longer we wait . . .
our prayer soon turns
into our complaint.

We grumble and we groan,
we sniffle and we moan
causing us to wonder if. . .
our prayers reach His throne.

Sometimes when we pray,
God answers with delay
to see if our faith in Him . . .
will stand fast or fall away!

~~~~~~~~~~

1Corinthians 16:13

Watch ye, stand fast
in the faith,
quit you like men,
be strong.

When God’s Silent ~

Is it God who is silent,
or am I just not hearing . . .
that tiny whispered breath
of the Holy Spirit stirring?

Is it God who is distant,
or am I the one far away . . .
is it why His influence
cannot rest on me today?

Is it God who is quiet,
or am I way too active . . .
to let the Holy Spirit
take my thoughts captive?

Is it God, who is still,
or am I not taking note . . .
is it why His small voice
seems so far and remote?

Is it God who is silent,
or am I just too into me
is that why dear Father . . .
You’re not hearing my plea?

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 22:2

O my God,
I cry in the day time,

 but thou hearest not;
and in the night season,

and am not silent.”
