Satan Doesn’t Care ~

Satan does not care,
who his victim is . . .
all he cares about
is who he can call his.

He will take anyone,
who you are is no big deal
as long as your heart and soul
from God he can steal.

Satan does not care,
how he gets a hold of you
all he cares about
is how your mind he can skew.

He will use any method,
to confuse and deceive
so that he can get you
not in God to believe.

Satan does not care,
who he catches or devours
so be ever watchful . . .
lest you succumb to his powers!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:8

“Be sober,
be vigilant;
because your adversary
the devil,
as a roaring lion,
walketh about,
seeking whom
he may devour.”

Afternoon Ponderings~11.11.18~


The Time is Brief ~

Now more than ever,
we need to be watchful
we need to stick to . . .
the truths in the Gospel.

For the time is nearing,
when all we will hear
are satan and his lies
shouted in our ears.

Now more than ever,
we need to be strong
we need to discern
right from wrong.

For now is the time,
for us to make a choice
to listen to the world’s
or the Holy Spirit’s voice.

Now more than ever,
the time is brief . . .
for Jesus is coming
just like a thief!

~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:2

“For yourselves know
perfectly that the day
of the Lord so cometh
as a thief in the night.”

The World’s Fate ~

When I think about,
the world around me
and all the chaos
I daily see.

I can not help,
but to wonder
how it will last
too much longer.

When I think about,
this world I’m in
and all I see
is evil and sin.

I can not help,
but to ponder
oh dear Lord
how much longer?

When I think about,
the world’s fate
for Jesus’ return
I can not wait!

Romans 8:6

“For to be carnally minded
is death; but to be
spiritually minded is
life and peace.”

Cracked ~

God gave me this body,
and at first it was intact
but as it grew older
I saw it began to crack.

Once the cracks started,
they could not be stopped
for the more I sinned . . .
out more of them popped.

The cracks started to chip,
piece by piece they fell
and the more I tried to hide them
the more in sin I would dwell.

As they started to fall off,
I began to see the real me
and the more that I sinned
the more damage I could see.

And so I called upon God,
and His awesome power
to fill me with His mercy
so my sins He could scour.

God gave me this body,
to be used as His vessel
and now with His strength
with sin I no longer wrestle.

2 Corinthians 4:7

“But we have this treasure
in jars of clay, to show that
the surpassing power
belongs to God and not to us”

Sheep Needing Feeding ~

The harvest is getting closer,
so many sheep need feeding
it’s time to go into the field
for so many are needing.

Needing to know God,
His mercy and favor
needing to find hope
the grace of a Savior.

Needing to be set free,
from satan’s deceit
needing the Gospel truth
about the judgment seat.

Needing the blood of Christ,
the Truth, Way and Life
needing to find freedom
from their sinful strife.

Harvest time is coming,
the sheep still need feeding
and it’s up to you and I . . .
to fulfill Jesus’ heeding!

~~~~~~~~

John 21.17

“He saith unto him the third time,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?
Peter was grieved because he said
unto him the third time,
Lovest thou me?
And he said unto him, Lord,
thou knowest all things;
thou knowest that I love thee.
Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”

Boundaries ~

God gave us boundaries,
to hem us to Him
so into temptation
we would not fall in.

He gave us the do’s
and the not to do’s too
so we’d not be fooled
by satan’s devious ruse.

God gave us boundaries,
of what we should know
He gave us limits
on the way we’re to go.

He gave us the shall’s,
and the shall not’s
to help us to control
our minds and thoughts.

God gave us boundaries,
right from the start
so that satan and sin
wouldn’t enter our heart!

~~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 2:16-17

“And the Lord God commanded the man,
saying, Of every tree of the garden
thou mayest freely eat:

But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil, thou shalt not
eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Redeeming Today ~

Today I’m redeeming,
the time God’s allotted
I’ll use it wisely
so evil can be spotted.

I am going to walk,
so ever cautiously
my steps I will pan
very carefully.

Today I’m redeeming,
every hour of my day
I’ll be ready to face
whatever comes my way.

My armor I’ll have on,
into God’s Word I will slip
so that into temptation
I will not fall or trip.

Today I’m redeeming,
cashing in on God’s power
for I know the day is evil
and satan’s out to devour!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-16

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

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.”

The god Of This World ~

The god of this world,
blinds and darkens
the souls in this world
who to his lies hearkens.

He causes deaf ears,
hearts to be cold
he tells them the Bible
is a falsehood to behold.

He and his army,
are at war for God’s light
and to the bitter end
for it they will fight.

So they wager a battle,
with all that they can
by telling them Jesus . . .
was just a mere man.

The god of this world,
impairs the sight
of the souls in this world
so they cant see God’s light!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

” In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.”

Good Morning Quote ~08.12.18~


A New, Clean Heart ~

A new, clean heart,
in me God created
ever since my desires
for the world abated.

Now my hopes,
are set on things above
not on my possessions
that I once so  loved.

A new heart of flesh,
God put into me
with the grace to believe
in what I can’t see.

Now my wants,
are heaven centered
once to Jesus my life
I fully surrendered.

A new, clean heart,
once cold and stony
now sees right through . . .
all of satan’s baloney!

~~~~

Ezekiel 36:26

” A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart
out of your flesh, and I will give
you an heart of flesh.”

Deep In My Heart ~

Deep in my heart,
are verses hidden
reminding me why
I am forgiven.

I refer to them,
when satan calls
so into his traps
I will not fall.

Deep in my heart,
God’s Words I keep
they comfort me
whenever I weep.

They’re full of hope,
peace and calm
they are my soul’s
soothing balm.

Deep in my heart,
Scriptures I’ve tucked
so from God’s hand
I cannot be plucked!

~~~~~~

Psalm 119:11

“Thy word
have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin
against Thee.”

Walking In His Light ~

The children of God
walk in His light . . .
for they know everyday
darkness they’ll fight.

They are battle ready,
their armor they put on
for the children of God
to His Word are drawn.

The children of God,
by His Spirit are lead
for they know the traps
satan’s has for them ahead.

They know the difference,
between right and wrong
for the children of God
are wise and strong.

The children of God,
walk in His light . . .
for their strength is in
His holy might!

~~~~~

Ephesians 5:8

“For ye were sometimes darkness,
but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light:”

Where’s The Zeal ~

Where’s the zeal,
where did it go . . .
where’s the burning desire
the narrow way to show?

Where’s the zest,
where’s the utterance
why do we now have
for sin tolerance?

Where’s the willingness,
where’s the dedication
where’s the readiness to lead
others to true salvation?

Where’s the eagerness,
where’s the thirst
why is the word sin
now on the blacklist?

Where’s the salt and light,
where did they go . . .
why has repentance
hit a new low!

~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 4:1

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall
depart from the faith, giving heed
to seducing spirits,
and doctrines of devils;”

Nameless Faces ~

Spiritual warfare,
in heavenly places
sinister, vile forces
with nameless faces.

Evil and wickedness,
we’re all up against
the armor of God
is our only defense.

Sober and watchful,
we have got to be
for the devil prowls
to devour you and me.

Submitting to God,
withstanding the day
trusting in His word
to keep darkness at bay.

Spiritual warfare,
each day we must fight
for even satan disguises . . .
himself as the true light!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:11

“Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.”

2 Corinthians 11:14

“And no marvel;
for Satan himself
is transformed into
an angel of light.”

Satan’s Graffiti ~

When satan messes,
with your heart and mind
on them his graffiti . . .
you will begin to find.

For your hope,
he will vandalize
and on your heart
he’ll write his lies.

When your faith,
satan tries to deface
let him know
you’re saved by grace.

For with your trust,
he will have a ball
and on your mind
his lies he’ll scrawl.

When satan lies to you,
don’t play chicken . . .
tell him what in your Bible
has been written!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 4:10

“Then saith Jesus unto him,
Get thee hence, Satan:
for it is written,”

King James Version

You Can Do It ~

You can be an endurer,
you can persist
if to the world’s wicked ways
you will resist.

You can be an overcomer,
you can prevail
if you don’t let satan’s arrows
your faith impale.

You can be an achiever,
you can win
if you run away from
all forms of sin.

You can be an opposer,
you can contend
if you don’t conform
or be the world’s friend.

You can do it,
you can win the race . . .
just keep looking to Jesus
for assurance and grace!

~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1-2

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed
about with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience the race
that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher
of our faith; who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross, despising
the shame, and is set down at the right
hand of the throne of God.”

Jesus’ Promise To Us ~

Holy Spirit,
Jesus’ promise to us
may in Your strength
we learn to always trust.

You are our adviser,
our staunch advocate
our fears You help
to fully dissipate.

Holy Spirit,
our soul’s Comforter
may Your power
we fall under.

You bring us hope,
fill us with grace
the joy of our salvation
in You we embrace.

Holy Spirit,
our ever-present Helper
may we always have
Your mighty temper!

~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Good Morning Quote ~04.14.18~


When Satan Deceives ~

When satan whispers,
calmly in your ear
God’s has left you
see, He’s not here.

Don’t you indulge,
in this wily deceit
for God promised
to be your retreat.

When satan wails,
loudly in your ear
See, all your prayers
God does not hear.

Don’t you believe,
in this cunning lie
for God listens to
your every cry.

When satan comes,
with whispers to deceive
wail right back at him . . .
just in whom you believe!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:4

“Ye are of God, little children,
and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you,
than he that is in the world.

The Holy Spirit’s Power ~

Holy Spirit,
we all need You
to help us daily
to battle through.

Without Your strength,
to overcome
to each temptation
we would succumb.

Holy Spirit,
God’s gift to us
in Your power
we need to trust.

Without Your courage,
to make us willing
to the world ways
we’d still be living.

Holy Spirit,
who dwells within
only You can give us . . .
power over sin!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 1:8

“But ye shall receive power,
after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you:”

1 Corinthians 10:13

“There hath no temptation taken you
but such as is common to man:
but God is faithful, who will
not suffer you to be tempted
above that ye are able;
but will with the temptation
also make a way to escape,
that ye may be able to bear it.”
