In All Things Be Thankful ~

I love this time of year,
with Thanksgiving just ahead
it reminds me of some facts
in the Bible I have read . . .

In all things be thankful,
let joy and praise flow out of you
for everything be grateful
give God the glory He is due.

Make peacefulness your habitation,
let your gentleness be known
be kind, tender-hearted and forgiving
never be the first to cast a stone.

Extend a hand to the needy,
let charity be your perfect gift
help all those who have not
bring back to God those adrift.

Show others your appreciation,
let them see your gratitude
bless them for their helpfulness
be not selfish in your attitude.

Reach out to the sick and hurting,
let them see Jesus’ true compassion
show all acts of grace and mercy
let not the sun go down on your passion.

Be content with all that you have,
rejoice in whatever is your state
be satisfied with all of the goodness
God places each day on your plate.

In everything be thankful,
let your praise be heard by all
in everything be grateful
let your joy be seen by all!


Ephesians 5:20

“Giving thanks always
for all things unto
God and the Father
in the name of our
Lord Jesus Christ;”

Psalm 119:105

Along The Righteous Path ~

Along the righteous path,
there are promise galore
for us to discover . . .
to search and explore.

For God promised to lead us,
on the road that is straight
and to show us the Way . . .
to get to the narrow gate.

He said we could ask Him,
for His guidance, divine
and to give us the endurance
to make it to the finish line.

God said it wouldn’t be easy,
there would be lots of stress
but He’d give us the grace
to continue to onward press.

He said we’d find His favor,
His mercy and goodness . . .
to reveal His purposes and plans
so to prove to us His kindness.

Along the righteous path,
God promised He’d lead
and we will find them all . . .
if our Bible’s we would read!


Psalm 25.10

All the paths of the Lord
are mercy and truth unto
such as keep his covenant
and his testimonies.

Psalm 119:105

May God Bless You ~

May God bless you,
each and every day
may His truths light up
the path along your way.

May His purposes,
and plans for your life
help you to overcome
all your inner strife.

May God’s strength,
you daily pursue
may His tender mercy
help to empower you.

May your mind find,
His peace and calm
may His Word be used
as your healing balm.

May you seek God,
with all your mind and heart
may you find His mercy
upon each day’s new start!


Lamentations 3:22-23

“It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.”

So Many Looking ~

So many looking,
for the purpose of life
so many living . . .
buried under the strife.

But, those who love God,
know of His plans
and they willingly leave
all things in His hands.

So many searching,
to find their way
so many surviving
from day to day.

But, those who trust God,
know just where to go
they believe His Word
the path will show.

So many searching,
so many looking . . .
but, those who know God
their faith keep putting!


Romans 8: 29-28

And we know that all things
work together for good to
them that love God, to them
who are the called according
to his purpose.

For whom he did foreknow,
he also did predestinate to
be conformed to the image
of his Son, that he might be
the firstborn among many brethren.

Sticky Note From God ~10.16.22~

Luke 11:28

Precise Instructions ~

Whenever I need,
God to inspire . . .
when my Spirit needs
to be lifted higher.

I open up my Bible,
and I begin to read
just why His Word
everyday I need.

Whenever my faith,
needs to be corrected
the Scriptures help me
to get redirected.

For they give to me,
precise instructions
how to overcome
worldly seductions.

Whenever I need,
some good old reproof
God’s Word stops me from
becoming too aloof!


2 Timothy 3:16

All scripture is given by
inspiration of God, and
is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness

Waiting Till God Answers ~

When not sure of what to do,
and God hasn’t answered you
when you’re feeling down and out
and you’re full of fear and doubt.

That’s the time you need to look,
for His promises in the Good Book
you’ll find the remedy for your needs
when to His Word your spirit heeds.

When you’re troubles take over you,
and worry surrounds all you do
when you’re down and feeling sad
and your anxieties mount and add.

That’s the time you need to pray,
asking the Lord to lead the way
He will show you where to go
and His directions you will know.

When you need answered prayer,
be still as you wait to hear
for God promises with His eye
to make for you the way clear!

in the way which thou shalt go:
I will guide thee with mine eye.”

Growing in grace,

Wisely Walking ~

Father I thank You,
today for Your grace
and the wisdom I need
to wisely run the race.

For, I know of the evil,
I will witness today
and to walk cautiously
must be my mainstay.

Father I thank you,
today for Your direction
for the wisdom to have
in the world no connection.

For, though times are dark,
You make it clear to me
how living like a fool
I do not want to be.

Father I thank you,
for helping me to walk wise
so that I can be mindful
of satan’s traps and lies!


Ephesians 5:15-17

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

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what
the will of the Lord is.”

Proverbs 19:20

Direction’s Needed ~

When you’re not sure,
of the way to go . . .
when you need someone
the correct way to show.

Open up your ears,
to God’s divine direction
and He will lead you
to the path of perfection.

When you’re not convinced,
which way you should turn . . .
when you need to have
the wisdom to discern.

Open up your Bible,
learn to walk in it ways
and God will lead you
for the rest of your days.

When you need directions,
so you can be Spirit led . . .
open up your ears . . .
to that voice in your head!

And thine ears shall hear
a word behind thee, saying
This is the way walk ye in it
when ye turn to the right hand
and when ye turn to the left

Sufficient Today ~

Sufficient today,
is the strength I need
adequate it shows me
when the Bible I read.

For God has a supply,
that goes a long way
enough to give everyone
their share for the day.

Timely is today,
is the power I receive
ample is my faith
that I should believe.

That in my weaknesses,
is when I am strong
for Jesus gives me rest
when things go wrong.

Sufficient is today,
the grace I am given
for I am thankful everyday
that I am even forgiven!


2 Corinthians 12:9

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.

Blessed Are The Hungry And Thirsty ~

Blessed are the hungry,
those who daily need
the Word of God
their faith to feed.

For they know His Word,
is the true Bread of Life
and without it their souls
would suffer eternal strife.

Blessed are the thirsty,
those who daily want
all of the mercies
for them God has got.

For they understand,
their fallen nature
and how through Jesus
they are a new creature.

Blessed are the hungering
and all those thirsting . . .
for living righteously
they are constantly striving!


Matthew 5:6

Blessed are they which
do hunger and thirst after
for they shall be filled.
