I’m Not Letting Go ~

Lord, I’m not letting go,
until my prayer You hear
I am not going to stop
beseeching in Your ear.

I will stop at nothing,
even if I have to beg
I will not give up . . .
even if on my last leg.

Lord, I’m not letting go,
until I hear from You
I’m going to keep praying
even if my face turns blue.

I will continue pleading,
as long as it takes
I will stay on my knees
even if my back breaks.

Lord, I am not letting go,
unless You bless me . . .
until I get an answer
I will be sticking by Thee!

~~~~~~~~

Genesis 32:26

And he said, Let me go,
for the day breaketh.
And he said, I will not let
thee go, except thou bless me.

Pray without ceasing

Embracing God’s Promises ~

Embracing the promises,
God has for all of us . . .
takes a journey into
a deeper faith and trust.

For we need to believe,
all things He’ll supply
that none of our needs
will He ever deny.

Embracing the provisions,
God has for us each day
takes a heart willing
to beseech and pray.

For we need to petition,
Him for our daily bread
so that our souls
can be constantly fed.

Embracing the promises,
of a God who is faithful . . .
takes a life to Jesus
that’s eternally grateful!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:19

But my God shall supply all
your need according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

S.O.S.

Today I sent to God,
a S.O.S . . .
He replied back to me
My child don’t you stress.

He told me He was working,
on an answer to my prayer
until then I was to relax
and not fall into despair.

I asked Him how long,
He was going to take
He said it would be soon
His decision He would make.

So I took His advice,
and rested in His care
knowing His response
was somewhere out there.

Today I sent to God,
a S.O.S . . .
He signaled back to me
into Him to deeper press!

Today I Heard From God ~

Today I heard from God,
He told me to keep believing
He told me to hold fast . . .
His peace I’d be receiving.

I heard Him tell me,
to take everything to Him
I heard Him say to wait
for His calm to set in.

Today I heard from God,
He told me not to doubt
He said to trust Him
as He’s working things out.

I heard Him tell me,
I have nothing to fear
I heard Him say to be strong
for He is always near.

Today I heard from God,
He told me to pray for you . . .
He told me that you needed
to hear today from Him too!

Wrapped Up In God’s Peace ~

When I find myself,
wrapped up in God’s peace
the breath inside of me
is easier to release.

For the peace of God,
relieves the tension
releasing me from
all my apprehension.

When I find myself,
in God’s peace guarded
with anxious thoughts
I’m no longer bombarded.

For the peace of God,
eases all the pressure
making my heart feel
lighter than a feather.

When I find myself,
in God’s peace wrapped
my mind won’t let go . . .
until more can be tapped!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Things Concerning Me ~

There are many things,
that concern me . . .
including things I can
and those I can’t see.

But, in God’s hands,
I leave them all to be
for I know He is working
something good in me.

There are a lot of things,
on my mind weighing . . .
and they get heavier
when I am not praying.

So for all and everything,
that to me is burdensome
I pray so that I may
all these things overcome.

There are many things,
I wish didn’t have to be
but, I know that God is . . .
perfecting faith in me!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 138.8

The Lord will perfect that which
concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord,
endureth for ever: forsake not the
works of thine own hands.

My God Cares For Me ~

My God cares for me,
He hears me when I pray
He is willing to help me
to get through the day.

So I rely on Him daily,
for His mercies plentiful
and depend on His graces
abundant and bountiful.

My God cares for me,
His Word tells me so
I can count on Him
to go wherever I go.

So I trust Him to lead me,
and to show me the way
to where His unfailing love
will keep my fears at bay.

My God cares for me,
onto Him mine I cast . . .
I trust Him to take them
from me whenever I ask!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

Casting all your anxieties on him,
because he cares for you.

A Kind, Gentle Spirit ~

A kind, gentle spirit,
is full of God’s grace
His mercy each day
it’s ready to embrace.

It prays to discern,
what is God’s will
then it waits on Him
as it remains still.

To self it’s crucified,
in Christ its made new
it keeps Calvary
always in its view.

It knows its limits,
goes not over the line
for it’s firmly rooted
to the True Vine.

A kind, gentle spirit,
needs to be cultivated
by having its ego . . .
by Jesus deflated!

He that followeth after
righteousness and mercy
findeth life, righteousness,

God Is Always Present ~

Some people say,
God is so far away . . .
some think He doesn’t
hear them when they pray.

Some people believe,
God is always present
some think He listens
to their every lament.

Some people rely,
only on their feelings
some think God’s not fair
with them in His dealings.

Some people depend,
on their faith and trust
some think God’s always
good, fair and just.

Some people say,
Jesus is so distant
some know He is . . .
always consistent!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 10:1

Why standest thou afar off,
O Lord? why hidest thou thyself
in times of trouble?

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ the same yesterday,
and to day, and for ever.

Matthew 6:6


Afternoon Ponderings ~05.26.22~

1 Peter 3:12


What My Heart Feels ~

Sometimes Lord,
I don’t know what to say
when before You I come
to entreat and to pray.

My words can’t gather,
what my heart feels
to provide to You
my pleas and appeals.

Sometimes Lord,
I can’t seem to convey
what is leaving me
with feelings of dismay.

My thoughts can’t collect,
what my mind decries
and to You my petitions
I cannot comprise.

Sometimes Lord,
all I can do is stutter
and let Your Spirit . . .
my prayer to You utter!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth
our infirmities: for we know not
what we should pray for as we ought:
but the Spirit itself maketh intercession
for us with groanings which
cannot be uttered.

Philippians 4:6-7


Praying Night and Day ~

There are many reasons,
for us to pray . . .
to either start off
or to end our day.

For what’s in between,
our wakeful hours
we’ll need to have lots
of God’s power.

There are many needs,
we must pray for
before both our feet
even hit the floor.

For our spiritual armor,
we’lll need to have on
whether it be in the night
or at the crack of dawn.

There isn’t any reason,
we should not pray . . .
regardless of the time
of the night or day!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6

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

Good Morning Quote ~03.27.22~


On My ROCKing Chair ~

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting peacefully
rocking to and fro
oh, so ever calmly.

Though, I have worries,
I haven’t me a care
for while I am rocking
God listens to my prayer.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting comfortably
rocking back and forth
oh, so ever enjoyably.

Though, I have troubles,
I’m rocking all the same
for I’m so confident
as I call upon His name.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m sitting quietly
rocking up and down
oh, so ever serenely.

Though, I have problems,
I’m gonna keep rocking
for God’s got me an answer
and soon He’ll be talking.

On my ROCKing chair,
I’m trusting and believing
for I know His response . . .
soon I’ll be receiving!

The Thorns Of Life ~

Life has many thorns,
many are prickly
some last a lifetime
others leave quickly.

But, no matter how long,
they choose to stay around
God has a lesson . . .
in each one to be found.

Life has many thorns,
some are self-inflicted
many others onto you
are purposely projected.

But, no matter how,
these thorns came to be
God will use them . . .
to take you to your knee.

Life has many thorns,
poking into our side
for God want us to deal
with our egos and pride!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:7

And lest I should be exalted above
measure through the abundance of
the revelations, there was given to
me a thorn in the flesh,
the messenger of Satan to buffet me,
lest I should be exalted above measure.

When Your World Shakes ~

When your world shakes,
and you feel it start rocking . . .
when you begin trembling
and your knees start knocking.

Go to God immediately,
and give Him all you fear
and He will make you . . .
surefooted like a deer.

When your world crashes,
in pieces all around you
when you begin to quiver
not knowing what to do.

Go to God straightaway,
ask Him for more grace
and the strength you need
till you’re in a safer place.

When your world collapses,
before on you it falls apart
go to God and ask Him . . .
to restore joy into your heart!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Pray As We Wait ~

As life’s storms,
we come upon
as more troubles
they bring on.

We need to pray,
as we sit and wait . . .
with forbearance
until they abate.

When life’s storms,
keep coming around
causing our worries
to teem and abound.

We need to hold fast,
to our future hope
as we sit and wait . . .
to help us to cope.

When life’s storms,
come at us straight
we’ll need God’s help
to sit and wait!

Our Realities ~

Sometimes our realities,
leaves us doubting . . .
sometimes they cause us
for relief shouting.

But, if we’re to trust God,
we must do so patiently
and wait for His answers
with a faith steadfastly.

Sometimes our situations,
leaves us questioning . . .
sometimes they leave us
with fearfulness, trembling.

But, if we’re to believe Jesus,
our burdens came to bear
then we will find His peace
as we give Him our care.

Sometimes our challenges,
leaves us wondering . . .
but, then God lets us know
He is never slumbering!

Lord, if it be your will.

whenever we tell Him
it’s in you that I trust.

Whatever we need,
whenever we desire
God will fulfill out needs
when on Him we inquire!

Good Morning Quote ~11.24.21~


Ask Jesus ~

When life tosses you,
into the pit of pain
when getting out of it
is too much of a strain.

Reach out your arms,
ask Jesus to lift you
out of the anguish
you are going through.

When life hurls you,
into the stormy seas
before the waves crash
and buckle your knees.

Reach out your hands,
ask Jesus to take a grip
so into the abyss
you’ll not begin to slip.

When life pins you down,
with its worry and care
ask Jesus to free you . . .
from all your despair!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 32:6

For this shall every one
that is godly pray unto
thee in a time when thou

Just Jesus And You ~

Just you and Jesus
no more middle man
your prayers to Him
you can give first hand.

No more curtain,
no more woven veil
your appeals to God
you, yourself can wail.

Just you and Jesus,
is all you need
for God to hear
as to Him you plead.

No more rules,
no more laws
you can pray to God
without pause.

Just you and Jesus,
no more legislator
once Jesus became . . .
for us our Mediator!

Praying Ceaselessly ~

You need to be praying,
without ever stopping
because your enemy
is always out shopping.

Shopping for more souls,
he can trick and deceive
looking to destroy
how you trust and believe.

You need to hold fast,
for you are at war
and your enemy knows
always where you are.

He see inside your heart,
looks into your mind
to see if there’s doubt
in them for him to find.

You need to be on the alert,
your enemy is always preying
that why you need to be . . .
to Jesus ceaselessly praying!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:17

Pray without ceasing.
