Sticky Note to God ~03.17.19~


The Heart of My Soul ~

Lord help me to keep,
on my heart a watchful eye
so that it may not for You
shrivel up and dry.

Let me be meticulous,
as to what I let into it
so it is always opened
to the wisdom of Your spirit.

Lord, help me to guard,
the heart of my soul
so that it’ll always be
in Your righteous control.

Let me be scrupulous,
as to what I hold dear
so that it may be filled
with holy awe and fear.

Lord, help me to keep,
my heart to Your keeping
so that my life will be . . .
to You always pleasing!

Proverbs 4:23

“Keep thy heart
with all diligence;
for out of it are
the issues of life.”

Good Morning Quote ~09.19.18~


Offend Me Lord ~

Offend me Lord,
with Your Word
let me be convicted
by the truth heard.

Insult me Lord,
with Your commands
so with false teachers
I’ll not shake hands.

Offend me Lord,
let me feel the sting
that Your reproof
in my life will bring.

Shock me Lord,
let my ears hear
no sinner in heaven
will You let near.

Outrage me Lord,
go ahead and offend
so with the world . . .
I’ll not be a friend!

~~~~~

John 6.61

“When Jesus knew in himself that his
disciples murmured at it,
he said unto them,
Doth this offend you?”

God Of The Hopeful ~

God of the watchful,
Lord of the heart
establish Your ways
upon a new day’s start.

God of the trustful,
Lord of the soul
gives us Your strength

God of the faithful,
Lord of the mind
may your peace
today we again find.

God of the hopeful,
Lord of our life
give us the courage
to give You our strife.

God of the watchful,
Lord of the heart
from Your righteous way
today, may we not part!

Make Straight My Path Lord ~

Make straight my path Lord,
let me not stray
in the Life and the Truth
lead me to the Way.

Make firm my steps Lord,
in You, make them secure
strengthen them for me
with a faith to endure.

Make steady my feet Lord,
keep them from tripping
into the things of the world
keep my soul from slipping.

Make my heart right Lord,
on Your way let me dwell
so I may be kept . . .
from the fires of hell.

Make straight my path Lord,
let me be Christ-seeking
for I put my hope and trust
in You, for safekeeping!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:8

Lead me, O Lord,
in thy righteousness
because of mine enemies;
make thy way straight
before my face.”

With All My Heart ~

With All My Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, may I cling to You,
with all of my heart
may nothing ever cause
the two of us to part.

May I obey the words,
You once gently spoke
to love others as myself
even if I am provoked.

May I walk in the steps,
of righteous, holy living
so I may never have
any doubt or misgivings.

May I keep following,
all of Your commands
may I serve only You
as Your Word demands.

May I use the gifts,
that to me were given
so I can spread the Word
that all can be forgiven.

Lord, may I serve You,
with all my heart and soul
may over both of them
You have complete control!

~~~~~~~~~

Joshua 22:5b

“To love the Lord your God,
and to walk in all his ways,
and to keep his commandments,
and to cleave unto him,
and to serve him
with all your heart
and with all your soul.”

Our Heart’s Desire ~

Desires of the Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If we want God to give,
the desires of our heart
then from His own heart
we cannot be far apart.

For what may be in ours,
might not be in His own
as ours wants and needs
are often selfish prone.

If we want God to grant,
us our heart’s longings
then after worldly things
we mush stop yearning.

For the lusts of the flesh,
our sinful fancies
will only bring to us
eternal penalties.

If we want God to give,
the desires of our heart
then to His ways we must . . .
delight in and never part!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:4

“Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee
the desires of thine heart.
