Put Jesus First ~

When you put Jesus,
first on your list
there He will be
right in the midst.

For when you meet,
with Jesus each day
He will by your side
unfailingly stay.

When you make Jesus,
your top priority
His Word you will keep
with all authority.

For when Jesus is taken,
more seriously
the more you will train
for the race rigorously.

When you trust Jesus,
fully and completely
you will go to Him
each day more routinely!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:33

“But seek ye first
the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness;
and all these things
shall be added unto you.”

John 14:23

“Jesus answered and said unto him,
If a man love me, he will keep my
words: and my Father will love him,
and we will come unto him,
and make our abode with him.”

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 From God ~04.07.18~


Trembling With Fear ~

 

You can pursue God’s Word,
whenever you want
but if you don’t apply it
what have you got?

You can study your Bible,
all night and all day
but if you don’t obey it
you’ll just lose your way.

You can go to church,
sit in your Sunday pew
but, the rest of the week
what is it that you do?

You can go to small groups,
share all you know
but, if you don’t live it
it is all done for show.

You can read and study,
sermons you can hear
but, is God working in you
trembling and fear?

~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:12

“Wherefore, my beloved,
as ye have always obeyed,
not as in my presence only,
but now much more in my absence,
work out your own salvation
with fear and trembling.”

Finding the Truth ~

When the Word of God,
is your daily bread
your spiritual hunger
will be fed.

When in your Bible,
you each day abide
your spiritual thirst
will be supplied.

When you soak up,
all the Good News
your life it’ll shape
if you so choose.

When the Scriptures,
you learn and memorize
you’ll see right through
satan’s disguise.

When you saturate,
your heart and mind
in the Word of God . .. .
the truth you will find!

~~~~~~~

John 8:31-32

“Then said Jesus to those Jews
which believed on him,
If ye continue in my word,
then are ye my disciples indeed;

And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.”

New Discoveries ~

new-discoveries-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Each day is a new adventure,
God gives us to explore
each day He wants us . . .
to get to know Him more.

Every place that you look,
new discoveries are everywhere
no matter where you turn
God is waiting for you there.

Every year God has for us,
something new and exciting
each day He wants us to be
in His Word exploring.

Every verse you read,
has something just for you
each Scripture you study
your faith it will renew.

Every day is a new adventure,
God has for us to investigate
and it’s up to us . . .
to use His Word to navigate!

A Verse A Day ~

Your Word My Light

A Verse a day,
will keep the devil away
a Word or two
will help restore and renew.

A Scripture thought,
will help when distraught
a Bible study plan
will lead and command.

A Verse a day,
will keep fear at bay
a Word or two
will power you through.

A Scripture learned,
will help when concerned
a Bible nearby
will keep Jesus close by.

A Verse a day,
is a daily must . . .
for it will direct you
in God, to always trust!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 119:105

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.”

Where’s Your Bible?

Your Word My Light

For some their Bible sits,
on their coffee table
they only reach for it . . .
when their TV loses its cable.

Others keep it on a shelf,
where it gathers a lot of dust
they only pick it up . . .
if they feel that they must.

Some carry it with them,
when they go to church
they only open it up . . .
when a verse  they’re to search.

But, then there are the ones,
who read their Bible every day
they know they need to study it
and apply the truth to their way!

~~~~~~~~~

John 14:6
King James Version

“Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way,

the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.”
