Hope For The Future ~

Hope for the future,
and for now and today
comes when God’s plans
we follow and obey.

Hope brimming with joy,
and of peacefulness
comes when we walk
a life of faithfulness.

Hope filled with trust,
and blessed assurance
comes when we live
a life full of pureness.

Hope heart stilling,
and mind calming
comes when into sin
we keep from falling.

Hope for the future,
is our hope for the day
for we know to follow . . .
the Life, Truth and Way!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.”

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.”

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.

He was in the world,
and the world was made by him,
and the world knew him not.”

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.”

Sticky Note to God ~10.16.18 ~


Free To Be Content ~

Free from the love of money,
from the lust of having things
free to accept daily . . .
the blessings Jesus brings.

Free from the love of pleasure,
from the desire to have more
free to open up my heart
and let Jesus in the door.

Free from the love of leisure,
from worldly delight
free to follow Jesus
the Truth, Way and Light.

Free from the love of luxury,
from all earthly pleasure
free to be storing in heaven
all of my heart’s treasure.

Free from the love of money,
free to be satisfied
content in knowing . . .
Jesus is always at my side!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 13:5

“Let your conversation be
without covetousness;
and be content with such
things as ye have:
for he hath said,
I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee.”

On The Path To Heaven ~

Lord may Your steps,
establish my pathway
so I may follow You
each and every day.

Take me to places,
where You want me go
so the Life and Truth
I may live and know.

Lord, take these feet of clay,
shake from them the dust
so I may leave footsteps
of faith, hope and trust.

Guide me as I travel,
on this sparsely walked road
so I may not be lured away
when heavy is my load.

Lord, may Your steps,
lead and guide me
so on the path to heaven . . .
I can walk along with Thee!

~~~~~~

Psalm 85:13

“Righteousness shall
go before him;
and shall set us
in the way of his steps.”

Lost With Jesus ~

Lost in thought,
the Lord and me
so looking forward
to what I can’t see.

Knowing the peace,
passing understanding
keeps me for Him
eagerly awaiting.

Lost in reminiscing,
days without hope
wondering how
I ever did cope.

Thankful and grateful,
each and every day
my Father hears me
when ever I pray.

Lost in thought,
Jesus and me  . . .
oh, how behind closed doors
with Him, I love to be!

~~~~~~

Matthew 6:6

“But thou, when thou prayest,
enter into thy closet,
and when thou hast shut
thy door, pray to thy
Father which is in secret;
and thy Father which seeth
in secret shall reward thee openly.”

The Light of My Life ~

Today I am singing,
though outside it is gray
I can still see the Light . . .
though the sun’s tucked away.

For the Light that shines in me,
makes my heart radiate
though there maybe clouds
my joy they can’t alienate.

Jesus is that Light,
the song of my salvation
and I don’t need the sun
to sing out my elation.

For the Light of Jesus,
lights up both night and day
nothing stops it from shinning
on the Truth, Life and Way.

Today I am singing,
though outside it is dreary
the Light of my life. . .
is all I need to be cheery!

~~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk
in darkness, but shall have the
light of life.”

When At A Crossroad ~

Some paths we are on,
are rugged and rough
some are easier . . .
and on us not so tough.

But, regardless of the path,
that God has us on
we must still be willing
to be Spirit drawn.

Some paths we are on,
are demanding and long
some are breeze . . .
filled with laughter and song.

But, when at a crossroad,
the path we choose to take
could be our biggest blessing
or our greatest mistake.

For, when we realize,
God’s paths are the best
that is when we will find . . .
our true peace and rest!

~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 6:16

“Thus saith the Lord,
Stand ye in the ways,
and see, and ask for
the old paths, where
is the good way, and
walk therein, and ye
shall find rest for
your souls.
But they said,
We will not walk therein.”

In His Presence ~

 

Lord, when in Your presence
there is joy in all its fullness
filled with eternal glee
and everlasting happiness.

Lord, when we communicate,
in the talks we have together
there is a fountain of hope
for all the storms we weather.

Lord, when You’re near me,
in the Spirit within my heart
from your presence I never
want to leave or part.

Lord, when in the morning,
we meet and jointly pray
I know You will show me
the Life, the Truth, the Way.

Lord, in Your presence,
I feel a peaceful glow . . .
each day I spend with You
the more my joy grows!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Sticky Note From God 11.24.17


My Joy Found ~

In Jesus,
my joy was found
and because of Him
I am heaven bound.

I found my faith in Jesus,
His name fills me with glee
all because I believe . . .
it was He, that first loved me.

I found my way in Jesus,
no longer am I lost
for He has taken me . . .
to the foot of the cross.

I found my hope in Jesus,
with Him my treasures I store
ever since I heard His rap . . .
and open to Him the door.

I found my joy in Jesus,
His name reminds me of
the life I have now . . .
due to His grace and love!

~~~~~~

Luke 15:10

“Likewise, I say unto you,
there is joy in the presence
of the angels of God
over one sinner that repenteth.”

K.I.S.S. ~

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t get bogged down
in all the rhetoric
that keeps going around.

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t listen to the heresy
just look into your Bible
and do what it has to say.

Keep It Simple Saints,
childlike faith is all you need
trust in your First Love
and let the Holy Spirit lead.

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t get caught in the lies
discern for yourself the truth
and then only those apply.

Keep It Simple Saints,
some make salvation hard
and their misguided opinions
you will need to disregard.

Keep It Simple Saints,
it’s so easy to get tied down
by all the Scripture arguments
that for centuries . . .
have been going around!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 2:1-2

“But there were false prophets
also among the people,
even as there shall be
false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring
in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord
that bought them,
and bring upon themselves
swift destruction.

And many shall follow
their pernicious ways;
  by reason of whom the
way of truth shall be
evil spoken of.”

I Thank God ~

I thank God,
for all He’s done
for the gift
of His Son.

I thank God,
for what He will do
for His mercy
making all things new.

I thank God,
for what’s to come
for the hope
of His Kingdom.

I thank God,
for His peace
for the day
evil will cease.

I thank God,

Will You Too ~

Will you too be the one,
who turns their back
will you blame Jesus
for the faith you lack?

Will you run away from,
the Life and the Way
will you too be the one
whom the world sways?

Will you shut the door,
on the hope you found
will you too no longer
to your Savior be bound?

Will you depart,
unbelieving and resentful
will you too be the one
who’ll never be regretful?

Will it be you,
will you too be the one
who stops following
the Light of the Son?

Will it be you,
will too up and flee?
Oh, Lord I pray . . .
don’t let this too be me!

unto the twelve,
Will ye also go away?

If We Train Our Children~

If we train our children,
God, to always fear
then they will sense
His Spirit close and near.

If we raise our children,
to have Godly restraint
then with this world
they’ll not want to acquaint.

If we educate our children,
God, to always love
then they will lay
their treasures above.

If we teach our children,
to follow God’s plans
then they will know
their times are in His hands.

If we instruct our children,
to follow God’s ways
then His laws they’ll obey
for the rest of their days.

If we train our children,
right from the start
then from His ways . . .
they will not depart!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 22.6

Train up a child
in the way he should go:
and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.


The Path of Truth ~

Lord, today I need
to know what is Your will
and until You show me . . .
I’ll just wait and be still.

I need Your guidance,
for the road ahead
I need the assurance
I will be Spirit lead.

Lord, today I need,
to heed what You say
so on the path of truth
I will be able to stay.

I need to learn to wait,
for the right directions
I need You to teach me
how to pay attention.

Lord, today I need to know,
what You’d have me to do
for I don’t want to walk . . .
down this road without You!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:5

“Lead me in thy truth,
and teach me: for thou art
the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day”

My Soul Thirsts ~

Lord, in the aridness,
of my heart and soul
I am thirsty for You
to reign and take control.

I long to absorb and drink,
from Your holy Word
to feel the Living Waters
in my mind being stirred.

Lord, in the dryness,
of my daily reality
I thirst for You to bring
a hopeful vitality.

I long to be nourished,
with the Truth and Life
to feel Your stilling peace
eat away my earthly strife.

Lord, my soul thirsts,
for You solely . . .
tis why I seek You
with my heart wholly!

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

Make my heart right Lord,

Open Eyes ~

Open eyes,
make believing hearts
spiritual understanding
they will impart.

Open eyes,
observe things clearly

Open eyes,

by satan’s traps.

Open eyes,
do not doubt
they have checked
the truth out.

Open eyes,
don’t need to see
to know Jesus . . .
has set them free!

and he will shew you
things to come.”
