Sticky Note From God ~02.05.19~


When You Pray to God ~

When to God you pray,
reflect on each word
think about their effect
before they are heard.

Don’t be in a hurry,
or go off on a rant
don’t use empty phrases
or offer a vague chant.

When to God you pray,
engage your heart wholly
let its reflections embody
all that’s scared and holy.

Don’t try to manipulate,
or use undo persuasion
don’t utilize the time
as a casual occasion.

When you pray to God,
don’t be long winded
don’t let your prayers
get stiff and rigid!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:7

“But when ye pray, use not
vain repetitions, as the
heathen do: for they think
that they shall be heard
for their much speaking.

To Be That Person ~

We all need someone,
to lift us up when down
a special person
who is always around.

We all need an ear,
on which to rely
we all need a shoulder
to lay our heads and cry.

We all need a friend,
in which to run to
we all need a supporter
to help get us through.

We all need Jesus,
to encourage us
to be that person
someone else can trust.

We all need someone,
some times, some way
we all need each other
to lift us up and pray!

~~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

“Two are better than one;
because they have a good
reward for their labour.

“For if they fall, the one will
lift up his fellow:
but woe to him that is
alone when he falleth;
for he hath not another
to help him up.”

Good Morning Quote ~01.19.19~


Hello God ~

Hello God,
are You still there?
I’ve a burden
I need to share.

Greetings God,
did You get my call?
I know I’m not . . .
always on the ball.

Hi God,
am I on hold?
I promise to do
what I am told.

Hey God,
should I ask again?
Maybe I forgot to say
thank you and amen.

Hello God,
are You listening?
Ah, there You are . . .
quietly whispering!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:7

“Ask, and it shall be
given you; seek,
and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall
 be opened unto you:”

From The Belly Of A Fish ~

If God can hear cries,
from a fish’s belly
I know He hears mine
also loud and clearly.

For wherever I am,
no matter my plight
God in my darkness
will too send His light.

If God can answer,
prayers out of distress
I know mine also
He’ll likewise address.

For it doesn’t matter,
where I might be
my pleas He will hear
and too answer me.

If God answers cries,
from a fish’s belly
I believe mine as well . . .
He’ll too hear readily!

~~~~~~~~~

Jonah 2:1-2

“Then Jonah prayed unto
the Lord his God out of
the fish’s belly,

And said, I cried by reason
of mine affliction unto the Lord,
and he heard me;
out of the belly of hell cried I,
and thou heardest my voice.”

Sticky Note to God ~12.04.18 ~


Walking Wisely ~

 

Oh, Father I thank you,
today for Your grace
and the wisdom I need
for the world I’ll face.

For I know of the evil,
I will witness today
and walking wisely
must be my mainstay.

Oh, Father I thank you,
for Your constant guidance
as I strive for perfection
in a world filled with defiance.

For, I know the perversion,
that is going out there
for to its ungodliness
Your Word keeps me aware.

Oh, Father I thank you,
for the wisdom You give
for without it I don’t know . . .
how in this world I’d live!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-17

“See then that ye walk circumspectly,
not as fools, but as wise,

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what
the will of the Lord is.”

King James Version

Call Upon Jesus ~

When your joy is robbed,
by the events of life
when they steal your hope
leaving you only strife.

Call upon Jesus,
for a change of heart
and His perfect peace
into it He’ll impart.

When you are buried,
deep in despair
when overwhelmed
by all your care.

Call upon Jesus,
for a change of mind
and His gentle love
you will surely find.

When your world,
comes crumbling down
call upon Jesus . . .
and your joy will rebound!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 145:18

“The Lord is nigh unto
all them that call upon him,
to all that call upon him in truth.”

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!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 103:2

“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits:”

God Helps Me To Know ~

God helps me to know,
His mercy He’ll show
when I go to His throne
His grace will be shown.

He helps me to grow,
when into His Word I go
He enlightens my vision
by giving me His wisdom.

God helps me to be calm,
He is my soothing balm
when I need comforting
He eases my suffering.

He makes me strong,
when things go wrong
He gives me boldness
by His closeness.

God helps me to know,
the way I should go
when to Him I pray
He shows me the way!

~~~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace, that
we may obtain mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need.

Good Morning Quote ~11.14.18~


Crossroads~

Often at a crossroad,
we decide the way
we think we should go
before we even pray.

We trust our intuition,
so we make the choice
without listening to . . .
the Holy Spirit’s voice.

We start off down the path,
we thought was best for us
forgetting it’s God’s will
and not ours we should trust.

We grow more unsure,
with each step we take
until we start wishing
the choice we didn’t make.

So next time at a crossroad,
before you make a decision
pray first asking God to give  . . .
you guidance and wisdom!

~~~~~~~

James 1:5

“If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God,
that giveth to all
men liberally, and
upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him.”

God’s Advantage Point ~

Today I prayed,
asking God what to do
and He responded . . .
My will you need to pursue.

I asked Him how,
His will I may know
and He answered
My Word the way will show.

So I bowed my head,
and opened up my mind
to the truth I knew
I was about to find.

And there it was in print,
what He wanted of me
as my eyes opened up
His answer I could see.

Today I prayed,
and God did not disappoint
for He showed me what to do
from His advantage point!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:17

“Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what the
will of the Lord is.”

Good Morning Quote ~10.31.18~


We Better Know ~

 

If we’re to follow the Way,
the Truth we better know
and then the life of Jesus
in our own will begin to show.

If we’re to be His light,
the darkness we better hate
so we can guide others
straight to the narrow gate.

If we’re to have trust,
the Word of God we better read
so more of His lost sheep
back to their Shepherd we can lead.

If we’re to have hope and joy,
the world we better not be in
so more of the unsaved
can be turned from their sin.

If we’re to follow the Truth,
we better know the Way
for we never know . . .
whose life we may sway!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing
of your mind, that ye may prove what
is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

Sticky Note From God ~10.20.18~


Pray With out Ceasing ~

Pray without ceasing,
answer God will
be anxious for naught
wait and be still.

Pray at all times,
trust and believe
your supplications
God will receive.

Pray to Your Father,
in Jesus’ name
be sure His peace
in your life you claim.

Pray for one another,
raise thankful your hands
seek His face early
and He’ll reveal His plans.

Pray without ceasing,
with gratefulness
remember always
God’s faithfulness!

~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:17

“Pray without ceasing.”
