The Crack of Dawn ~

I wake up at dawn,
along with the dew
and rise up my Lord
to get close to You.

My morning I start,
with You in prayer
so to be ready
to give You my care.

Just like a bird early,
who gets the worm
I study Your Word
to keep my faith firm.

I dress in my armor,
make sure it’s on tight
I pray each verse I read
fills me Your might.

Each morning I awake,
with the crack of dawn
so my soul to You Lord
daily may be drawn!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:3

“My voice shalt thou hear
in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I
direct my prayer unto thee,
and will look up.”

Sticky Note to God ~08.09.18


Get God Involved ~

So often we have problems,
we try to fix alone . . .
when what we should do
is take them to the throne.

We know that in God,
we need to place our trust
but when troubles come
this doesn’t resonate in us.

So we think we’ve the power,
our worries we can overcome
and doing things ourselves
becomes the rule of thumb.

We know Jesus said,
our burden’s He would bear
and instead of letting go
we hold on to our care.

We set out our anchor,
in the sea of faithlessness
making for ourselves
an even bigger mess.

So often we have problems,
alone we try to resolve . . .
when we should be asking
for God to get involved!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:22

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

Sticky Note From God ~08.01.18~


Lost With Jesus ~

Lost in thought,
the Lord and me
so looking forward
to what I can’t see.

Knowing the peace,
passing understanding
keeps me for Him
eagerly awaiting.

Lost in reminiscing,
days without hope
wondering how
I ever did cope.

Thankful and grateful,
each and every day
my Father hears me
when ever I pray.

Lost in thought,
Jesus and me  . . .
oh, how behind closed doors
with Him, I love to be!

~~~~~~

Matthew 6:6

“But thou, when thou prayest,
enter into thy closet,
and when thou hast shut
thy door, pray to thy
Father which is in secret;
and thy Father which seeth
in secret shall reward thee openly.”

Jesus Prays For Us ~

When my words,
I cannot form
and to God my pleas
I cannot inform.

That’s when Jesus,
steps right in
with moans coming
from deep within.

When I can’t even,
begin to pray
all though I have
a lot to say.

That’s when Jesus,
for me advocates
and my prayers to God
He formulates.

When my words,
can’t form my needs
that’s when Jesus . . .
for me intercedes!

1 Timothy 2:5

“For there is one God,
and one mediator
between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus;”

Sticky Note to God ~08.09.18


Lean ~

Some days when I feel,
I’ve lost faith’s composure
I stop and lean closer
on my Savior’s shoulder.

I lay my head there,
letting it rest for a while
until my trust in Him
I once again compile.

Some days when I feel,
tired and down right beat
I stop and lean closer
to my Savior’s feet.

It’s there were I lay,
my burden and my care
until unto my hope
I’m again made aware.

Some days when I feel,
I’m about to fall apart . . .
I stop and lean closer
to my Savior’s heart!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;
and lean not unto
thine own understanding.”

Remote Places ~

Into remote places,
Jesus goes with us
to teach us to pray
so in Him we may trust.

There with Him at our side,
while on bended knee
He gives us more faith
in what we cannot see.

Into barren places,
deep within our soul
Jesus persuades us
to give Him control.

There with Him at His feet,
in the depth of our despair
He shows us how to give
to Him our every care.

Into desolate places,
with Jesus we go . . .
so we can pray His will
we may come to know!

~~~~~

Mark 1:35

And in the morning,
rising up a great while before day,
he went out, and departed into a
solitary place, and there prayed.

A Heart Open ~

A heart open,
to God’s searchings
is a heart ready
for His teachings.

It’s a heart willing,
for God to make known
His plans and purposes
the way to be shown.

A heart open,
is one that will pray
it doesn’t matter
if it’s night or day.

It’s a heart knowing,
God’s will is the best
if it wants to have
true peace and rest.

A heart open,
to God’s eternal good
is a heart working for Jesus
just as it should!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:10

“I the Lord search the heart,
I try the reins, even to give
every man according to his ways,
and according to the fruit
of his doings.”

God’s Timing ~

God’s timing,
is always the best
on this truth . . .
we need to find rest.

For when God does,
a new thing in our life
it’s to bless us
not add to our strife.

God’s timing,
can be so very slow
understanding why
we may never know.

But as we wait,
God will encourage us
to find the strength
in Him to trust.

God’s timing,
can never be wrong
and it’s up to us . . .
to keep our faith strong!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:19

“Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way
in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.”

Micah 7:7

“Therefore I will look
unto the Lord;
I will wait for the God
of my salvation:
my God will hear me.”

What Is Your Will Lord ~

What is Your will Lord,
what would You have me do
how will I know the answer
is coming from You?

What will I need Lord,
what of me do You require
how will I know just what
is Your righteous desire?

What is Your will Lord,
what do You want of me
how will I know the path
when the way I can’t see?

What must I yet have,
what is it that I’m lacking
how will I know for sure
I have Your divine backing?

What is Your will Lord,
tis my hearts plea . . .
for I know you have
great plans for me!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 25:2

“It is the glory of God
to conceal a thing:
but the honour of kings
is to search out a matter.”

Proverbs 19:21

“There are many devices in a man’s heart;
nevertheless the counsel of the Lord,
that shall stand.”

Jesus Never Tires ~

Sometimes it’s hard,
to give Jesus our care
sometimes with Him
it’s difficult to share.

But, when we let go of,
our worldly concern
He will give to us
His peace in return.

Sometimes it’s not easy
spending time praying
sometimes it feels no one
hears what your saying.

But, when we release,
what weighs on our heart
Jesus in return for it
more grace will impart.

Sometimes it’s hard,
to give Jesus our care
but, He never tires of . . .
listening when we share!

~~~~~~

“Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.”

When Torn ~

When torn between,
which road to take
pray before any . . .
conclusion you make.

Don’t be in a hurry,
to make your decision
wait until God gives
a crystal clear vision.

When at a crossroad,
before you move on
pray and ask God
to be Spirit drawn.

Don’t rush ahead,
until He gives the go
for, if you’re patient
the way He will show.

When torn between,
which road to take . . .
always choose the highway
if on God you can’t wait!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

Proverbs 16:17

“The highway of the upright
is to depart from evil:
he that keepeth his way
preserveth his soul.”

Thankful In Any Circumstance ~

Whatever comes my way,
I take this stance . . .
to be thankful
in every circumstance.

Whenever I am happy,
my praise to God I sing
and I thank Him for . . .
the joy that He brings.

Whenever I have troubles,
I seek Him and I pray
and I thank Him for . . .
the peace on my way.

Whenever I’m hurting,
I trust my pain He’ll relieve
and I thank Him for . . .
the strength to believe.

Whenever I’m doubtful,
I give to Him my fear
and I thank Him for . . .
being close and near.

Regardless of how I feel,
I praise Him in advance
and I thank the Lord . . .
no matter my circumstance!

~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:18

“In everything give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

In A Slump ~

In a slump,
spiritually speaking
faith needing
a little tweaking?

Well don’t stop,
praying when dry
go ahead with God
and have a good cry.

In the dumps,
thought’s troubling
worries becoming
a little unnerving?

Well don’t stop,
raising your praise
God understands
it’s just a phase.

In a funk,
losing the battle
cares have you
a little bit rattled?

Well don’t you stop,
in God trusting . . .
until living water
again come rushing!

~~~~~~~~

“He that believeth on me,
as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall
flow rivers of living water.”

I Rely On My Faith ~

I rely on my faith,
each day to be strong
I trust it even when . . .
things are going wrong.

I depend on prayer,
every day I am alive
for, I know in this world
it’s the only way to survive.

I lean on God’s grace,
each day I need more
for, I know it’s able
to heal and restore.

I draw on God’s Word,
every day I study and read
for, I know I’ll be blessed
when the verses I heed.

I rely on my faith,
prayer and God’s sufficing grace
my hope is found in my Bible
when it’s truth I embrace!

“Blessed is the man that
trusteth in the Lord,
and whose hope the Lord is.”

When All Seems Dark ~

I know right now,
all seems so dark . . .
and you’re not sure
just where to start.

The news you got,
wasn’t very good
your mind is stuck
on the if’s and could’s.

But, God’s got this,
He knows what to do
and His wisdom
will surely come to you.

I know right now,
all seem so bleak
answers to questions
are all you seek.

So much uncertainty,
right now to face
too many decision
you need to embrace.

But, Jesus is there,
right now with you
to help and show you
what you need to do.

I know right now,
it seems dark tonight
but, tomorrow you’ll see
things better in His light!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 2:1

“I exhort therefore,
that, first of all,
supplications, prayers,
intercessions,
and giving of thanks,
be made for all men;”

Stop And Pray Each Day ~

 

Each day we need,
to stop and pray
and listen to . . .
what God has to say.

We need to pray,
for His mercy anew
so temptation
we can subdue.

We need to pray,
for more grace
so the enemy
we can face.

We need to pray,
for His favor
if our faith
should waiver.

We Need to pray,
for His healing balm
to help keeps us
still and calm.

We need to pray,
for His power
so we’ll have victory
no matter the hour.

We need to pray,
for His wisdom
to give unto us
a clear vision.

Each day we need,
to continually pray . . .
for we never know
what’ll come our way!
