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.”

we need for believing.

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.”

Out Of Whack ~

When your life,
is out of whack
it’s time to take
a step back.

You need to look,
at all that you do
asking Jesus . . .
is this done for You?

When your life,
is lopsided
it’s time to stop
being blindsided.

You need to see,
satan for what he is
and not let him
make you one of his.

When your life,
is out of control
it’s time to look
deep into your soul!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 16:26

For what is a man profited,
if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?
or what shall a man give in
exchange for his soul?

Perhaps Today My Lord Will Come ~

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will come
perhaps today I’ll see
my Lord on the clouds
coming down for me.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will call
perhaps today I’ll hear
the sound of His trumpet
telling me He is here.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will show
perhaps today I’ll catch
that twinkling in my eyes
and be taken in a snatch.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will arrive
perhaps today I’ll leave
with my Savior to paradise
along with all who believe.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will come
perhaps today I’ll be
forever in peace with Him
in the bliss of eternity!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 24:30

“And then shall appear the sign
of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes
of the earth mourn, and they
shall see the Son of man coming
in the clouds of heaven with
power and great glory.”

1 Corinthians 15:52

“In a moment, in the twinkling
of an eye, at the last trump:
for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall
be changed.”

Blessed Is She ~

Blessed is she who believes,
who mediates and prays
for she is able to hear
the things God has to say.

Blessed is she who has faith,
who is Holy Spirit filled
for she can understand
what is God’s perfect will.

Blessed is she who trusts,
God in and for all things
for she knows His favor
into her life He will bring.

Blessed is she who hopes,
whose thoughts are higher
for her joy is in knowing
the future will be brighter.

Blessed is she who believes,
whose hope and trust glows
for her heart leaps and bounds
because her Savior she knows!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 1:45

“And blessed is she that believed:
for there shall be a performance
of those things which were told
her from the Lord.”

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!

~~~~~~~~

“If we live
in the Spirit,
let us also walk
in the Spirit.”

Embracing The New ~

Embracing the new,
getting rid of the old
is freeing and liberating
makes us for Jesus bold.

It’s finally saying goodbye,
to former desires
and letting the Holy Spirit
ignite into our souls a fire.

Taking off the weight,
of spiritual depression
allows Jesus to make
a lasting impression.

It’s doing away with self,
and letting Jesus in
it’s going out everyday
not falling back into sin.

Doing away with the old,
for what is new . . .
is letting Jesus become
a part of 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.

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!

~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 24:3

“Through wisdom is an house builded;
and by understanding it is established:”

Heavenly Minded ~

When you are,
heavenly minded
in this world
you won’t be blinded.

For when you know,
your real citizenship
into satan traps
you will not fall or slip.

When you live,
a life worthy of
the grace of Jesus
and His love.

You will be,
a light that reflects
His life and power
and its effects.

When you are,
heavenly focused
how you act
will be noticed!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 1:27

“Only let your conversation
be as it becometh the gospel
of Christ: that whether I come
and see you, or else be absent,
I may hear of your affairs,
that ye stand fast in one
spirit, with one mind striving
together for the faith of the gospel;

Philippians 3:20

“For our conversation is in heaven;
from whence also we look for the
Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:”

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.

A Holy Fight ~

If we’re to be,
for Jesus a light
we must be ready
evil to fight.

For the darkness hates,
all that is right
and will stop at nothing
to douse our light.

If we’re to be,
for Jesus the salt
we must be prepared
for the world’s assault.

For the darkness hates,
all that is sound
and will do anything
to hold its ground.

If we’re to be for Jesus,
the salt and the light . . .
then we must be prepared
for a holy fight!

~~~~~~~~~

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.

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:”

Whatever The Cost ~

Whatever You want Lord,
whatever the cost to me . . .
wherever it is You want
for me to go and be.

That’s where I’ll travel,
that’s the road I’ll take
for You all I possess
I willingly forsake.

Whenever You need me Lord,
wherever the place
whatever time You call me
to sow seeds of grace.

That is when I will leave,
that is when I’ll depart
for You in the harvest
I will gladly take part.

Whenever You want Lord,
whatever the cost . . .
for You I will go
and find those who are lost!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:8

Yea doubtless,
and I count all things
but loss for the excellency
of the knowledge of Christ
Jesus my Lord: for whom
I have suffered the loss
of all things, and do count
them but dung,
that I may win Christ.”

My Cup Is Brimming ~

My cup is quite full,
in fact it’s brimming
for in God’s mercy
I’m gleefully swimming.

My cup is full of joy,
glorious and triumphant
for Jesus has filled it
with grace abundant.

My cup is full of hope,
that keeps expanding
for its full of life
blissfully unending.

My cup is full of peace,
of a future brighter
for I know Jesus is
salvation’s provider.

My cup is quite full,
joy flows past the brim
for my life to Jesus . . .
I’ve surrendered to Him!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:5

“Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.

God Searchers ~

Some people search,
for life’s real meaning
they look everywhere
for some reasoning.

They grope around,
hoping they’ll find
the peace they need
to ease their mind.

Some people look,
for anything to idolize
they seek far and wide
to find that golden prize.

They are on a quest,
for spirituality . . .
to help them understand
their own immortality.

Some search everywhere,
for a god of some kind
when the True Living One
is right here to find!

~~~~~~

Acts 17:27

“That they should seek the Lord,
if haply they might feel after him,
and find him, though he be not
far from every one of us:”

There Is No Good In Evil ~

Calling evil good,
is the majority’s rule
and if you don’t agree . . .
you’re considered a fool.

For, when we tell the truth,
about man’s wickedness
we are told we are bigot’s
filled with hatefulness.

Calling good evil,
is the track mankind is on
and if you don’t agree . . .
their anger you will spawn.

For, those who are in the dark,
don’t want to see the Light
as they believe their choices
are their god given rights.

Today’s new social norm,
is a bitter pill to swallow
for calling evil good . . .
is satan’s favorite motto!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 5:20

“Woe unto them that call
evil good, and good evil;
that put darkness for light,
and light for darkness;
that put bitter for sweet,
and sweet for bitter!”

Bold As Lions ~

Bold as lions,
are those who are righteous
they’ve nothing to fear
for they are virtuous.

Their conscience is clear,
they’ve no reason to doubt
for from the curse of darkness
they have found their way out.

Brave as lions,
are those who are Godly
they’ve nothing to dread
for they’ve ceased their folly.

Their hearts are right,
their evilness was replaced
with the love and mercy
of their Savior’s grace.

Bold and brave,
like lions are we . . .
for to our wicked ways
we were able to flee!

~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 28:1

The wicked flee when
no man pursueth:
but the righteous are
bold as a lion.”

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.”

Mind Renewing ~

Mind renewing,
is a daily must
if we’re to grow
our faith and trust.

For with it comes,
a heart cleaning
rightness of spirit
and God leaning.

Mind renewing,
is an exercise
so to the world
we won’t compromise.

For it’s transforming,
temptation discerning
keeping our souls
from in hell burning.

Mind renewing,
is a daily must . . .
for it is how God
leads and guide us!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

A Heart Forgiving ~

A forgiving heart,
we must all acquire
so our resentments
on us don’t backfire.

For if we fail to do,
as Jesus did for us
bitterness our hearts
will slowly encrust.

A heart merciful,
we need to nourish
in God’s Word
for it to flourish.

For if our hearts try,
to forgive on their own
any malice left in it
will turn it into stone.

A heart forgiving,
speaks of no one evil
for it knows words can be
viciously lethal!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:31

“Let all bitterness,
and wrath, and anger,
and clamour,
and evil speaking,
be put away from you,
with all malice:”

Sticky Note From God ~02.21.19~


When Confused ~

When you’re confused,
unsure of the way . . .
when you don’t trust
what others have to say.

Read your Bible,
to clear any confusion
and God will show you
His perfect solution.

When you are unsure,
about the course to take
don’t let others push you
to the wrong choice make.

So if you want directions,
that are clear and true
pick up your Bible
and let God guide you.

For, God won’t mislead you,
like so many might . . .
so when you’re confused
go to the One True Light!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 119:169

“Let my cry come near before thee,
O Lord: give me understanding
according to thy word.”
