2 Corinthians 4:4


Adjusting My Armor ~

Sometime my armor,
needs to be adjusted . . .
for with inattentiveness
it starts to get encrusted.

So with the Word of God,
my whole armor I lubricate
and with faithfulness
I grease up my breastplate.

Sometimes my armor,
needs fortification . . .
for I start to lose for God
my heartfelt appreciation.

So I take all the Verses,
enriched with gratitude
and enshroud my helmet
with a praise filled attitude.

Sometime my armor,
gets bent all out of shape . . .
so I apply the Gospel of Truth
so from satan I may escape.

I straighten up my shield,
with steadfast faith and trust
so when his fiery darts hit me . . .
my armor will not combust!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:13-17

Wherefore take unto you
the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to withstand
in the evil day, and having done all,
to stand
.

Stand therefore, having your loins
girt about with truth, and having
on the breastplate of righteousness
;

And your feet shod with the
preparation of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield
of faith, wherewith ye shall
be able to quench all the fiery
darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:

Psalm 16:8


In Faith Be Done~

May all you do,
in faith be done
may your life . . .
reflect the Son.

May all you say,
in faith be said
may your heart . . .
be willingly lead.

May all you achieve,
in faith be obtained
may your soul . . .
remain unstained.

May all you tell,
in faith be told
may your spirit . . .
be for Jesus bold.

May all you pursue,
in faith be performed
may to God’s word . . .
you be transformed!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:22

But be ye doers of the word,
and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.

Romans 2:13


If Not For Jesus ~

If it were not for Jesus,
I would not have made it
if it were not for Him . . .
giving me a new spirit.

But, once He came along,
He put flesh into my heart
and now to the world
I am no longer a part.

If it were not for Jesus,
I would have turned back
if it were not for His Word
to help keep me on track.

But, He shines His Light,
on the Truth and Way
so from the narrow path
I’ll not wander or stray.

If it were not for Jesus,
I would have surely given in . . .
to the pressures of the world
to go out again and sin!

~~~~~~~~

John 8: 1011

When Jesus had lifted
up himself, and saw none
but the woman, he said
unto her, Woman, where
are those thine accusers?
hath no man condemned thee?

She said, No man, Lord.
And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more.

Sticky Note to God ~03.13.21~

Proverbs 30:5


Lord, Remind Me Once Again ~

Remind me Lord again,
why You have me here . . .
come whisper Your plans
into my waiting ear.

Give to me the road map,
charting out the course
teach me to use Your Word
as my navigation source.

Remind me Lord again,
of Your purposes for me
draw out Your blueprint
for my eager eyes to see.

Tell me where I could go,
show me what I should do
instruct me how to put
all my faith and trust in You.

Remind me Lord again,
of Your purposes and plans
be my earthly guide . . .
for my life is in Your hands!

~~~~~~~~

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.

John 8:31-32


Life On The Battlefield ~

Life on the battlefield,
is no easy task . . .
for our daily strength
God we need to ask.

His Word will equip us,
so we can have victory
otherwise our lives
will be full of misery.

For our enemy is evil,
his tactics even worse
they are diabolical
corrupt and perverse.

We’ll need to be ready,
to fight the wickedness
as our enemy is known
for his ruthlessness.

Life in the faithful fight,
is no easy one . . .
but with the power of God
it’s one that will be won!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:39

For thou hast girded me
with strength unto the battle:
thou hast subdued under me
those that rose up against me.

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.

The Things I Have Seen ~

I have seen morality fade,
the withering of man’s ethics
I have seen people lives canceled
by the pundits and skeptics.

I have seen a government,
become by greed corrupt
I have seen the rage of hate
on city streets erupt.

I have seen earthy riches,
turn cold the heart of man
I have seen lawlessness
disperse across the land.

I have seen the propaganda,
the promoting of hypocrisy
I have seen the erosion
of freedom and democracy.

I have seen the falling away,
of those who once believed
I have seen how the children
by education are deceived.

I have seen the fruit plummet,
far from the True Vine
I have seen the Gospel truth
become dull and benign.

But what I have yet to see,
are all the things eternal
and I know till Jesus come
all I see now is temporal!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:18

While we look not at
the things which are seen,
but at the things which are
not seen: for the things
which are seen are temporal;
but the things which are not
seen are eternal.

2 Timothy 3:16-17


What Happened To The Training ~

What happened to training,
our children in the Way
why are they from God . . .
turning so far away?

Why are they departing,
from the Truth and Life
why are they creating
in our world so much strife?

What happened to teaching,
our children about God
why are they leaving for
the road wide and broad?

Why are they rebellious,
so willfully disobedient
why are their morals
so carelessly lenient?

What happen to our children,
why have they left the flock
could it be their parents . . .
they too, chosen God to mock?

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 22:6

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

Galatians 6:7

Be not deceived;
God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth,
that shall he also reap.

Spiritual Air ~

Some times a spiritual breath,
we all need to take in . . .
to expel the soot and grime
of living in a world full of sin.

We need to slowly inhale,
the promises of God Word
so we can draw upon . . .
the truth we have heard.

Sometimes we all need,
to come up for spiritual air . . .
so God our hearts and minds
He can renew and repair.

We need to oxidize our souls,
with all of God’s goodness
till we’re at peace and rest
with His almightiness.

Sometimes we all need,
to take a long breather . . .
so we can remind ourselves
just why we are a believer!

~~~~~~~~

Job 33:4

The spirit of God
hath made me,
and the breath
of the Almighty
hath given me life.

For Grace To Grow ~

For grace to grow,
it needs to be fed . . .
our Bibles must be
everyday read.

For without knowledge,
of our Lord and Savior
will never be able to
duplicate His behavior.

For grace to bloom,
it needs to be watered
lest on the straight way
we will surely faltered.

For without understanding,
on our spiritual path
one day we’ll encounter
God’s righteous wrath.

For grace to grow,
our faith we need to nourish
for it to increase . . .
in Jesus it must flourish!

~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ. To him be
glory both now and for ever.
Amen.

What More Do I Need ~

The Lord is my Shepherd,
what more do I need . . .
whenever I am hungry
on His Word I feed.

He renews my spirit,
my soul He repairs
sends me into the world
knowing I’ll be prepared.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I trust Him to guide . . .
and give me the strength
to keep up with His stride.

Through times are troubled,
I have nothing to fear
for I know my Lord
will always be near.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I have all that I need . . .
He steady’s my feet
so to His ways I’ll heed.

“The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.”

WOKEN ~

I am woken,
I am enlightened
by the world’s views
I am not frightened

I am alert,
to satan’s lies . . .
I know how he is
the master of disguise.

I am aware,
I am educated
by the world’s ways
I am not captivated.

I am sober,
I see what I’m up against
I know my freedoms
satan wants to repress.

I am cognizant,
I am more than woke
I can see right through . . .
satan’s mirrors and smoke!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:14-15

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

Therefore it is no great thing
if his ministers also be
transformed as the ministers
of righteousness; whose end
shall be according to their works.

Psalm 119:11


Into The Light Of Day ~

When all around me,
is cold and bleak . . .
when I’m feeling frail
fragile and weak.

I pick up my Bible,
to warm up my soul
knowing it’s Words
my heart will console.

When all around me,
is dark and dim . . .
when I’m feeling faint
helpless and grim.

I read the Scriptures,
to Lighten my spirits
knowing they’ll give me
hope without limits.

When all around me,
is cold, dark and gray . . .
God’s Word turns the night
into the Light of day!

John 1:1


God’s Gift of Jesus ~

A Child, a Babe,
today is born
the Son of Man
Salvation’s horn.

Our Mighty God,
the Sacrificial Lamb
fulfills the Word
of the great I AM.

A Carpenter, a King,
brings Good Cheer . . .
of His Kingdom
soon coming here.

Our Counselor, Our Rock,
our Father Everlasting
long ago Wise Men
were heard forecasting.

A Child is born,
God’s gift to you and I
for the Morning Star
has risen in the sky!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government
shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be
called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.

My Light Generator ~

A light unto my path,
a brighter day I’ll see
for Jesus is the beam . . .
shining inside of me.

A lamp unto my feet,
His ways for me to see
for Jesus is the glow . . .
radiating out of me.

A candle in my darkness,
a flicker of hope to see
for Jesus is the sparkle . . .
twinkling all around me.

A lantern to my soul,
a glimmer for all to see
for Jesus is the shimmer . . .
reflecting out of me.

A torch unto my heart,
a spark that I can see
for Jesus is the flame . . .
burning deep in me!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp
unto my feet,
and a light
unto my path.

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.

John 8:12


Let The Truth Guide You ~

Let the truth guide you,
let it lead your way . . .
so on the narrow path
you’ll continue to stay.

For, without the truth,
there are only lies
causing you to take
your eyes off the prize.

Let the truth be your rule,
let it be your banner
so into the straight gate
you’ll be able to enter.

For, without the truth,
satan will try to deceive
making you doubt
everything you believe.

Let the truth guide you,
let it direct you too
listen and follow . .
Jesus’ voice in you!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:27-28

My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:

And I give unto them
eternal life; and they
shall never perish,
neither shall any man
pluck them out of my hand.

Psalm 119:130


The Light Unto My Way ~

I tuck the Word into my heart,
then I go about my way . . .
knowing I can trust in God
to guide me through my day.

So I rise up before the sun,
to meditate and learn . . .
for, I desire that the Word
be the only lamp I burn.

I get such peace and hope,
as my Bible I read along
with each Scripture I study
I feel myself growing strong.

Before I start out the door,
I pray for God’s guidance
I wait until I can hear Him . . .
breaking through the silence.

I tuck the Word in my heart,
for it renews me day-to-day
it goes with me wherever I go . . .
for it is the light unto my way!
