Beyond The Cross ~

Beyond the cross,
there’s a glorious view
for in Jesus’ death . . .
all things are made new.

New beginnings,
fresh clean starts
eternal hope
to fill our hearts.

Beyond the cross,
there is new life
the end to sin
and worldly strife.

No more battles,
no more struggles
no more satan
causing troubles.

Beyond the cross,
there are no fears
no death, no pain
and no more tears.

Despair will end,
suffering will cease
there will only be
everlasting peace.

Beyond the cross,
hope springs anew
all because Jesus . . .
died for me and you!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

“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.”

Sticky Note From God~ 04.21.19~


It Is Finished ~

“It is finished”
words of agony from Jesus’ lips
“It is finished
no greater love will again eclipse.

“It is finished”
these words aloud Jesus said
and for the sins of everyone
His soul hemorrhage and bled.

“It is finished”
but, what really had just begun
was that grace and forgiveness
were freely given by God’s Son.

“It is finished”
but, for you it can be a new start
if you repent now of your sin
and give Jesus your whole heart.

“It is finished”
Jesus died so that you’d be free
let His death on  Calvary’s cross
take your soul to its knees.

“It is finished”
but, it’s not the end of the story
not until the day all of mankind
stands before God’s in all His glory.

“It is finished”
words of hope from Jesus’ lips
“It is finished”
don’t let His love for you eclipse!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 19:30

“So when Jesus had received the sour
wine, He said, “It is finished!” And
bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.”

It Started With Just One Nail ~

One nail was all it took,
to crucify Christ that day
it started with just one nail
for the crowd to get their way.

One blow upon that nail,
got the crowd to cheer and yell
“Crucify Him, Crucify Him”
put the hammer to that nail.

One nail was all it took,
for them to secure His fate
one large, iron nail became
the spike of their distaste.

One bang upon that nail,
their voices swelled and soared
“Crucify Him, Crucify Him”
as they began to nail the Lord.

One nail was all it took,
though they used all three
but, it started with that one nail
so all sinners could go free.

All it took was that first nail,
for the crowd to be satisfied
just one strike upon that nail . . .
and our Savior they crucified!

~~~~~~~

Mark 15:13-14

“And they cried out again, Crucify him.”

Then Pilate said unto them,
Why, what evil hath he done?

” And they cried out the more exceedingly,
Crucify him.”

Sticky Note to God ~04.20.19~


Thank God It’s Good Friday ~

I thank God,
it’s Good Friday
I’m so grateful
for this one day.

For my Savior,
endured for me
the pain, the shame
to set me free.

I thank God,
for Jesus dying breath
for it saved me
from eternal death.

For my sins,
on the cross He bore
so I could have life
with Him forever more.

I thank God,
it’s Good Friday
for Jesus is to Him . . .
the only pathway!

It’s About You Lord ~

It’s all about You Lord,
not about me . . .
it’s all about what You did
on Calvary’s tree.

It’s all about Your love,
the gift of Your grace
it’s all about that day
my sins You erased.

It’s all about Your life,
Your Truth, the Way
it’s all about giving You
my faith each day.

It’s all about Your strength,
Your might and power
it’s all about trusting You
my every waking hour.

It’s all about Your mercy,
Your compassion and affection
it’s all about making You . . .
the image in my reflection.

It’s all about You Lord,
not about me . . .
it’s all about Your blood
setting me free!

Thank You Father ~

Father, thank You for the Cross,
for all Jesus did for me
for opening my eyes
so my fallen state I could see.

Thank You for Your mercy,
the scourging of my sin
for opening my ears
to Your wooing voice within.

Thank You for Your favor,
the thorns of righteousness
for opening my mouth
so my wrongs I could confess.

Thank You Father for Your love,
the lashings of my shame
for opening my heart
so I could call upon Your name.

Thank You for the blood,
that poured out from Your Son
for the gift of salvation . . .
You granted to every one!

Hebrews 2:9

“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower
than the angels for the suffering of death,
crowned with glory and honour; that he by the
grace of God should taste death for every man.”

Walking In the Spirit ~

When you walk in the Spirit,
you will live in Jesus’ light
all things will be clearer
everything will look bright.

For the Spirit will change you,
your mind He will capture
fill it with secure thoughts
of the upcoming rapture.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll have a worldly guide
someone who will help you
to keep faith in your stride.

For the Spirit will lead you,
on the path of righteousness
helping you to live a life
in the power of faithfulness.

When you walk in the Spirit,
you’ll repel the darkness
for the Light of Jesus . . .
will help keep you sinless!

in the Spirit,

My Sin ~

My sin,

My hope,
Jesus’ death
my trust

My peace,
Jesus’ grace

His abase.

My light,
Jesus’ way
my soul
His today.

My heart,
Jesus’ home
my future
in Him alone!

Called To Freedom ~

Called to freedom,
not worldly bondage
called to understanding
wisdom and knowledge.

Called to liberation,
not worldly dependence
called into holy living
moral transcendence.

Called to empowerment,
not worldly subjection
called to be the Light
of Jesus’ reflection.

Called to separation,
not worldly servitude
called to be discerning
with minds daily renewed.

Called to freedom,
not worldly conformation
called into a new life
a holy transformation!

~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:1

Stand fast therefore in
the liberty wherewith Christ
hath made us free,
and be not entangled again
with the yoke of bondage.

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

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.”

Order In The House ~

If we are to have,
order in the house
our understanding
we need to rouse.

For we need to build,
upon Godly wisdom
keeping heaven
right within our vision.

Then our homes,
will be full of pleasure
as we come to realize
our eternal treasure.

If we are to have,
our house in order
each room needs to be
without a border.

For when our walls,
come tumbling down
inside our hearts
our Savior is found!

and by understanding it is established:”

There’s Only One God ~

Just like the sun,
must set in the west
I know God for me
is my perfect rest.

I know He’s the only,
God that there is . . .
I believe He knew
I’d be one of His.

Just like the moon,
hanging in the sky
I know God is God
question not why.

Though I’ve not met,
Him face to face
I know through faith
I am saved by grace.

Just as the sun,
rises in the east
I know Jesus is . . .
the only High Priest!

~~~~

Isaiah 45:5-6

I am the Lord,
and there is none else,
there is no God beside me:
I girded thee, though thou
hast not known me:

That they may know from
the rising of the sun, and
from the west, that there
is none beside me.
I am the Lord, and
there is none else.

God’s Not Winking ~

God is no longer,
winking at man
for judgment day
soon is at hand.

He wants all of us,
to be idolatry free
so with Him in heaven
we can eternally be.

God is no longer,
looking the other way
He wants everyone
to turn to Him today.

He wants mankind,
to confess their sin
so more unsaved souls
Jesus can win.

God is no longer,
at man winking an eye
He’s now looking for . . .
the heart repentant cry!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 17:30

“And the times of this
ignorance God winked at;
but now commandeth all
men every where to repent:”

God’s Not Finished With Me ~

God’s not finished with me,
I know this to be true . . .
for, I can see all the things
that He has yet to do.

I realize He got started,
on me a long time ago
but, I also know there’s still
a lot of room for me to grow.

God’s not done with me,
all things beautiful take time
but, first He needed to chisel
away sin’s grit and grime.

I know when I came to Him,
my life was a big mess
but, a masterpiece takes time
and a lot of divine finesse.

God’s not finished with me,
He has a long way to go . . .
but, I am confident in this
when He is done, I will know!

~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 3:11

He hath made every thing
beautiful in his time:

Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very
thing, that he which hath
begun a good work in you
will perform it until the
day of Jesus Christ:

Salvation Isn’t For Sale ~

You can’t buy your way into heaven,
salvation is not for sale . . .
on your own merit you can’t get there
if you try you’ll only fail.

You can’t shop around for grace,
it’s a free gift God gave to all
you can’t pay for His mercy
you need to heed salvation’s call.

You can’t finance deliverance,
it’s only there if you repent
you can’t fund spiritual healing
you must God’s mercy instead except.

You can’t pick up the tab to heaven,
Jesus already paid the price . . .
you must believe His life for you
He willingly had to sacrifice!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 19:24

“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a
camel to go through the eye of a needle,
than for a rich man
to enter into the kingdom of God.”

The Most Beautiful Love Song ~

There is a love song,
more beautiful than any other
lyrics so glorious
you will get lost in all its wonder.

The melody is soothing,
all your fears it will calm
to your soul it will be . . .
just like a healing balm.

It is a song sung,
with joy and gladness
over hearts awakening
from spiritual blindness.

The tune is gentle,
the rhythm is easy . . .
the message is offered
to everyone freely.

There is a joyous love song,
Jesus sings from above . .
whenever someone accepts
His life-saving love!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Zephaniah 3:17

“The Lord thy God in the midst
of thee is mighty; he will save,
he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love,
he will joy over thee with singing.”

“Come unto me,
all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.”

Life Without Jesus ~

You may have breath,
your heart may beat
but, you don’t have Life
until Jesus you meet.

You may have sight,
your eyes may perceive
but, you don’t have Life
if in God you don’t believe.

You may have reason,
your ears may detect
but, you don’t have Life
if Jesus you reject.

You may have vitality,
your body may go
but, you don’t have Life
until Jesus you know.

You may have breath,
but, you don’t have Life
for without Jesus . . .
there’s only eternal strife!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:11-12

“And this is the record,
that God hath given to
us eternal life, and
this life is in his Son.

He that hath the Son hath life;
and he that hath not the Son
of God hath not life.”

Don’t Look Back ~

Lord, on the road to Life,
there are a lot of dark places
filled with dangerous curves
with treacherous open spaces.

But, with Your Word as my Light,
I know I will find my way
as it’ll give me the direction
so from You I will not stray.

Lord on the road to Life,
there’s a lot of scary things
situations so repulsive . . .
that living in this world brings.

But, with Your Word as my guide,
I know I will not get lost
for I’m aware of my options
and their hellish eternal cost.

Lord, on the road to Life,
there are plenty of hazards
and I fear what will happen
if I should look backwards!

“But his wife looked back from
behind him, and she became a
pillar of salt.”

Afternoon Ponderings~02.02.19


A Warning ~

Don’t be fooled,
though saved by grace
to these truths . . .
we must embrace.

Do not go down the road,
of sexual temptation
rather to immorality
have no association.

Don’t continue to sin,
or stay on the wide way
rather confess and repent
right now without delay.

Do not drift or fall back,
into godless living
rather into righteousness
keep yourself pressing.

Don’t fall victim,
to satan’s attacks
rather flee for your life . . .
and don’t look back!

~~~~~~~~~

Titus 2:11-12

“For the grace of God that
bringeth salvation hath
appeared to all men,

Teaching us that, denying
ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly,
in this present world;”

A Prisoner of Hope ~

I’m a prisoner of hope,
for Jesus captured me
the day when from this world
He came and set me free.

I’m a prisoner of love.
for Jesus gave me life
the day when upon Himself
He took my worldly strife.

I am a prisoner of faith,
for Jesus convicted me
of the hidden sin in my life
that only He could see.

I’m a prisoner of trust,
for Jesus gave me light
the day when He filled me
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

I’m a prisoner of hope,
love, faith and trust . . .
for Jesus showed me
He is always fair and just!

~~~~~~~

Zechariah 9:12

Turn you to the strong hold,
ye prisoners of hope:
even to day do I declare
that I will render
double unto thee;

Old Creature Gone ~

Old creature gone,
exchanged for the new
the day Lord, Jesus
we came to follow You.

Old dirty habits,
old thoughts and ways
redeemed for the new
for the rest of our days.

Old bitter resentment,
old tempers and demands
substituted for the new
as we obey Your commands.

Old greedy desires,
old habits and lusts
converted for the new
when we began to trust.

Old creature gone,
exchanged for the new
all because Lord, Jesus
we’re beholden to You!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in
Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold,
all things are become new.

Sticky Note From God ~01.19.19~


We’re All Guilty ~

We all have,
laundry filthy
we all are in
God’s eyes guilty.

We all need,
to be disinfected
and be to God
more subjected.

We all have,
concealed  sin
we all know
the evil within.

We all need,
to come clean
so God’s glory
we can glean.

We all have,
wicked thoughts
we all have into
satan’s lies bought.

We all need,
to scour our mind
so God’s Mercy
we can find.

We all have . . .
fallen short
we all need Jesus
to cleanse our heart!
