CHRISTmas Wonder ~

May you feel the wonder,
of God’s gift of a Savior
may His love and grace
you hold on to and savor.

May you feel the thrill,
of the hope of His birth
may your heart overflow
with joy, cheer and mirth.

May you feel the wonder,
of the coming of a King
may you trust and believe
in the peace He’s soon to bring.

May you feel the excitement,
of Him who was and is to come
may you be eager and ready
for Him to set up His kingdom.

May you feel the wonder,
of God’s blessed assurance
as you await the day . . .
of His next appearance!

So It Be Done ~

So it be written,
so it be done . . .
so unto the world
God sent His Son.

So it be told,
so it be said
so by a star
the Magi’s were led.

So it be stated,
so it be completed
so to a manger
shepherd’s retreated.

So it be scripted,
so it be transcribed
so for man’s sin
Jesus lived and died.

So it be written,
so it be done . . .
so Jesus was born
to save everyone!

Isaiah 14:24

“The Lord of hosts hath sworn,

and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory,

In God’s Holy Presence ~

In God’s holy presence,
there’s joy in its fullness
pleasures circulating
His everlasting goodness.

There is peace and hope,
a spreading of refreshing
an ongoing revolving
of life-changing blessings.

In God’s holy presence,
there’s mercy restoring
upon the Holy Spirit’s
heart filling outpouring.

There’s an internal calm,
an outgoing of favor
the ongoing flowing
of grace from a Savior.

In God’s holy presence,
here and above . . .
there’s an effortless flow
of steadfast love!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

CHRISTmas Is Coming ~

CHRISTmas is coming,
I can feel the stress
the joy of the season
is becoming less and less.

I can see the crankiness,
impatience and frustration
saying Merry CHRISTmas
only brings more irritation.

CHRISTmas is coming,
I can feel the strain
the hope of the season
is going down the drain.

I can sense the pressure,
the tension and weariness
tidings of peaceful cheer
are met with dreariness.

CHRISTmas is coming,
but, through the stress I’ll cope
for the season still fills me . . .
with joy, peace and hope!

~~~~~~~

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.”

Sticky Note From God ~12.05.18~


God’s Beloved Son ~

God has a gift for you,
He sent it long ago
for on you His grace
He wanted to bestow.

He planned carefully,
just what He should get
and so His Beloved Son
He was willing to forfeit.

So He sent from heaven,
a Lamb and a King
so that peace and hope
to you He could bring.

He knew that you needed,
a Savior for your soul
someone who could heal
and make your heart whole.

God has a gift for you,
I pray you will open it
for inside you will find
the essence of His Spirit!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 9:15

“Thanks be unto God
for his unspeakable gift.”

Sticky Note to God ~12.05.18 ~


I Don’t Recognize CHRISTmas ~

CHRISTmas has become,
more of a pagan holiday
now not even the manger
can some put on display.

They’ve done a good job taking,
CHRIST out of the big picture
even the cards they make and sell
now seldom have a scripture.

CHRISTmas has become,
just another time to gather
at parties and at homes
where Jesus doesn’t matter.

There’s always plenty of food,
and lots of drinks to go around
but, Jesus’ name isn’t mentioned
unless someone has a meltdown.

I don’t recognize CHRISTmas,
for me it is just not the same
now that I offend so many . . .
when I say my Saviors name!

pagan:

noun: a person who does not acknowledge God
adjective: not acknowledging the God of Christianity


I Must Admit ~

I admit . . .
I am old-fashioned
for Jesus is
my one true passion.

I know people think,
I am out of it
when I say I’m filled
with His spirit.

I acknowledge,
I’m old-school
for I let Jesus
my heart rule.

I know people feel,
I’m a dinosaur
for holy living
I still stand up for.

I accept . . .
what they think of me
for still believing in
what I can’t see!

Jesus The True Light ~

May this Christmas,
you find the one True Light
so that Jesus
can give you a new sight.

May you discover,
your own personal Savior
by accepting the gift
of God’s ultimate favor.

May this Christmas,
you find the True Way
and the truth behind
Jesus’ birth this day.

May you discover,
God’s glorious love
delivered to you
from up above.

May this Christmas,
you open your heart
so God into it . . .
grace can impart!

John 1:9-10

“That was the true Light,
which lighteth every man
that cometh into the world.

and the world knew him not.”

Silent People ~

Silent people,
are all around
you may see them
but they make no sound.

For they are in,
an emotional prison
oh, how they need
someone to just listen.

Silent sufferers,
need to be heard
but they say not
one single word.

We need to be,
to them more aware
and open our ears
to hearing their care.

Silent, suffering people,
everywhere we go
oh, how about Jesus . . .
we need to let them know!

“Many sorrows shall be

that trusteth in the Lord,

Thank You Heavenly Father ~

Thank you Father,
for being there
for making me
to You aware.

Thank you Father,
for being kind
for allowing me
Your love to find.

Thank you Father,
for hearing my plea
for showing mercy
to a sinner like me.

Thank you Father,
for sending Your Son
for His grace to finish
what You begun.

Thank you Father,
for all You do . . .
thank You my heart
You choose to pursue!

Forever Grateful ~

I am thankful,
I am blessed
for I have found
in Jesus rest.

I am content,
I am delighted
for in my life . . .
Jesus I invited.

I am grateful,
I am satisfied
for in Jesus
I am purified.

I am loved,
I am at peace
for Jesus brings
my soul release.

I am blessed,
I am thankful
to Jesus, I am
forever grateful!

Jesus Is My Yes ~

Jesus is my yes,
He is my Amen . . .
for all of God’s promises
flow right out of Him.

Jesus is my truth,
He is my absolute
for God’s tender mercy
in me He imputes.

Jesus is my grace,
He is my true salvation
for God suffered Him
to save me from damnation.

Jesus is my hope,
He is my Lord and Life
for God sent Him
to take Himself my strife.

Jesus is my yes,
He is my hallelujah Amen . . .
all my faith and trust
I put into God and Him!

Rock Bottom ~

Hitting rock bottom
having a hard time
thinking not another
mountain to climb?

Well, don’t you ever forget,
just who is your Rock
or who over that mountain
will help you to walk.

Up against a rock,
and a hard place
thinking you should
just quit the race?

Well don’t you give up,
hold on to the Rock
and through that valley
He will help you walk.

Having a hard time,
in your faithful walk?
Well don’t you forget
Jesus is your Rock!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 10:4

“And did all drink
the same spiritual drink:
for they drank of that

A Clean, New Heart ~

 
A clean heart Lord,
create in us
one free of sin
evil and lust.
 
Free of worldliness,
free of selfish greed
free to see You are
everything we need.
 
A renewed Spirit Lord,
put into us
one that will always
in You put its trust.
 
Alert and resistant,
to the lies satan tells
one where Your own Spirit
abides and dwells.
 
A clean heart create,
a right spirit bestow
Lord in our lives
so Your will we may know!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 51:10

“Create in me a clean heart,
O God; and renew a right
spirit within me.”

Sowing and Reaping ~

If we are to plant,
we must also water
and trust the growing
to our heavenly Father.

If we want to reap,
we need to sow
and from doing good
weary we can’t grow.

If we want to shout,
with joy and glee
then seeds of faith
we need to set free.

If we want to gather,
fruit for His vine
we need to be patient
loving and kind.

If we want to reap,
there will be pruning
for God the harvest  . . .
is always fine tuning!

~~~~~~

Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary
in well doing:
for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not.

Psalm 126:6
He that goeth forth and weepeth,
bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless
come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him.”

James 5:7
Be patient therefore,
brethren, unto the coming
of the Lord. Behold, the
husbandman waiteth for
the precious fruit of the earth,
and hath long patience for it,
until he receive the early
and latter rain.

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.”

Eternal Grief ~

I could read everything offered,
on religion and theology
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
it would all just be garbology.

I could study every book,
written by man on his thought
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
all I’ve gleaned will be for naught.

I could go to a university,
cram long into the dead of night
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
I will never see the True Light.

I could take tests and exams,
to see what I’ve learned
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
in hell I’ll forever burn.

I could read everything offered,
by man about his belief . . .
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
I’ll just end up with eternal grief!

“For I determined not
to know any thing among you,
save Jesus Christ,
and him crucified.”

A New Creation Awaits ~

When you ask Jesus
into your heart
deliverance from sin
will spontaneously start.

When for your trespasses,
you ask Jesus to atone
living a sinful life
you’ll no longer condone.

When you ask Jesus,
to pardon your sin
regeneration
will promptly begin.

When for your sins,
you ask Jesus to forgive
your former way of life
you will not want to relive.

When you ask Jesus,
into your heart . . .
a new creation awaits
right from the start!

all things are become new.”

Joyful Are We ~

Joyful are we,
who are saved by grace
who Jesus’ love
our hearts embrace.

Happy are we,
who trust in the Lord
who know His peace
will be our reward.

Blessed are we,
who hope in a future
where Jesus will be
our King and ruler.

Grateful are we,
who in faith believe
the Spirit of Jesus
is ours to receive.

Joyful are we,
who know God’s favor
who believe Jesus is
our risen Savior!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:3

“Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant
mercy hath begotten us again
unto a lively hope by the
resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead,”

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.”

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”
