May Your Eyes Be Opened ~

May your eyes be opened,
to spiritual understanding
may the hope you now have
keep your faith expanding.

May you be enlightened,
to the truth you’ve found
may your heart be guarded
and your mind stay sound.

May your eyes discover,
God’s beauty and wonder
may upon His goodness
they contemplate and ponder.

May His spirit you trust,
as your guide and shield
may to His instructions
you diligently yield.

May the riches of His glory,
be your soul’s delight
may your future inheritance
always be in your sight!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18

The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his calling,
and what the riches of the glory
of his inheritance in the saints,

Sticky Note to God ~01.17.20~


Seeking God’s Kingdom~

Seeking God’s kingdom,
is a daily must
for all of those
who believe and trust.

Whether we’re at home,
or be far away
we need to please Him
in every single way.

Seeking God’s kingdom,
is to walk worthy
to remain faithful
throughout our journey.

For us to live is Christ,
to die is our gain
the prize of our calling
is our souls only aim.

Seeking God’s kingdom,
while here on the earth
is joy unto salvation
to all who had a rebirth!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom
of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be
added unto you.

It’s All Yours Lord ~

It’s all Yours Lord,
the sky, the sea
the heaven, the earth
all belong to Thee.

You dampen the clouds,
bring the shine of the sun
only You in Your wisdom
can the universe run.

Lord, You alone created,
the mountain, the hills
the valleys, the dales
were formed by Your will.

You clap out the thunder,
the lighting You streak
You make the wave roar
put the stillness in a creak.

It’s all Yours Lord,
the earth and all related
by just Your command . . .
were made and created!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 104:24

O Lord, how manifold are thy works!
in wisdom hast thou made them all:
the earth is full of thy riches.

Our Heart’s Desires ~

If we want to have,
our heart’s desires
we need to do . . .
all God requires.

For He wants us to be,
to Him fully submitted
to the Truth and Way
wholly committed.

If we want to have,
the wants of our heart
from righteousness
we must not depart.

For God wants us to be,
drawn to the Light
so the world can see
in Him our delight.

Our heart desires,
God will bring to us . . .
if in Him we commit
delight and trust!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:4-6

Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee the desires
of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord;
trust also in him; and he shall
bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy
righteousness as the light,
and thy judgment as the noonday.

Looking Unto Jesus ~

As troubles come,
as they most surely will
when the road ahead of you
looks all up hill.

When you are at a loss,
as to what to do
and you’ve no answers
not even a clue.

Look unto Jesus,
He knows how high the climb
He’ll help you over it
in His perfect time.

As hardships come,
as they seem to do
when they start to get
the very best of you.

When the pit you’re in,
is beyond waist deep
and all your cares
make you want to weep.

Look unto Jesus,
He will never let you sink
He is not as far away
as you may think.

As burdens come,
as they begin to occur
and in your mind
everything’s a big blur.

When nothing seems,
to make much sense
and you start to feel
nervous and tense.

Look unto Jesus,
He’ll give to you a new sight
and you’ll start to see . . .
everything through His light!

~~~~~~~~

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.

What Have You Got ~

You can peruse your Bible,
all that you want . . .
but if you don’t apply it
what have you got?

For what good does it do,
if you don’t employ and heed
the instruction God gives
to you as you read?

You can read the Word,
all the day long . . .
but if you don’t utilize it
how can you be strong?

For once in the world,
you venture out in . . .
how will you keep from
being tempted by sin?

You can study your Bible,
till your face turns blue
but if you don’t live it . . .
what good is it to you!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 11:28

But he said, Yea rather,
blessed are they that hear
the word of God, and keep it.

Santa’s List ~

It’s not santa’s list,
I am concerned about
for he doesn’t hold
with me any clout.

I’m more mindful,
with my name being
listed in the book
God is keeping.

It’s not santa checking,
if I’m nice or naughty
for he is regardless . . .
always happy and jolly.

I’m more concerned with,
any sin I’ve got hidden
so I can repent now . . .
and for them be forgiven.

I don’t really care,
what santa may think
for I know God . . .
at sin doesn’t wink!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 20:15

And whosoever was not found
written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire.

Acts 17:30

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

How Would I’ve Known ~

Lord, I know You’re in control,
over all that I do
but, how would I know this . . .
if I didn’t first seek You?

I know I can trust You,
for my every need
but, how would I know this
if Your Word I didn’t read?

I believe You always will,
lead and guide my way
but, how would I know this
if I didn’t stop and pray?

I know for my faith,
with the devil I will fight
but, how would I know this
if I didn’t recognize Your light?

Lord, I know You’re in control,
over all that I do
but, how would I know this . . .
if I never heard about You!

2 Timothy 2:15

rightly dividing

Sticky Note to God ~12.20.19~


Lay Your Treasure ~

Put no value in the things,
living in this world brings
for they will only just corrupt
and in the end self-destruct.

Lay instead your treasure,
in things you cannot measure
things like faith, hope and trust
for they’ll never turn into rust.

Put no worth in material things,
things like cars and diamond rings
for that which we now hold dear
will one day all just disappear.

Lay up instead things eternal,
and the things that are internal
things like morality and integrity
against which there is no penalty.

Put no value on worldly things,
instead lay in your heart of heart
the things that will in the end . . . .
not corrode, rot or fall apart!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through
and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

The CHRISTmas Star ~

The CHRISTmas star,
still shines today . . .
of the hope and peace
of yesterday.

It still beckons,
for those to seek
a Savior who is
lowly and meek.

The CHRISTmas star,
still brings delight
of the birth
of Love that night.

It still saves,
all who journey
to worship Him
who is worthy.

The CHRISTmas star,
still shine today
with the Light . . .
of the Life and Way!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:10

When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding
great joy.

Revelation 22:16

I Jesus have sent mine angel
to testify unto you these things
in the churches. I am the root
and the offspring of David,
and the bright and morning star.

Sisters And Brothers ~

Sisters and brothers,
by God created
through Jesus . . .
now all blood related.

One big family,
by God’s adoption
now are His children
saved from corruption.

Sisters and brothers,
heirs of a King
declared now as
His own offspring.

A sibling reunion,
to take place
all because . . .
of faith and grace.

Sisters and brothers,
all thanks to Jesus
created by God . . .
and His love for us!

~~~~~~~~

John 1:12-13

But as many as received him,
to them gave he power to become
the sons of God, even to them
that believe on his name:

Which were born, not of blood,
nor of the will of the flesh,
nor of the will of man, but of God.

Romans 9:8 

That is, They which are the children
of the flesh, these are not the children
of God: but the children of the promise
are counted for the seed.

Harden Your Heart Not ~

Harden not your heart,
to your spiritual condition
let it not turn cold
by your selfish ambition.

Let it not turn callous,
like the rebellious one
let it not become distant
by a grumbling tongue.

Harden not your heart,
to the Spirit’s leading
let it not turn frigid
by the sins you’re keeping.

Let it not become rigid,
by carelessly drifting
let it not be stubborn
by the life you’re living.

Harden not your heart,
by disbelief or doubt
let it not turn icy
by shutting God’s Word out.

Let it not turn you away,
from the hope of eternal peace
let it not turn to stone . . .
lest your faith in God may cease!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 3:13

“But exhort one another daily,
while it is called To day;

lest any of you be hardened
through the deceitfulness of sin.”

Before You Get Up ~

Before you get out,
of your warm bed . . .
make sure God’s Word
you have read.

Then as you rise,
you will be girded
in the truth before
you even get started.

Before you get going,
take up faith’s shield
so to satan’s deceit
you will not yield.

Then as you get ready,
you will be protected
with a breastplate keeping
you and God connected.

Before the door you open,
make sure you put on
the peace you have found
in Christ, Jesus the Son.

Then when you see,
a dart at you come flying
you will know it’s from
the one who’s always lying.

Before you retire,
while warm in your bed . . .
tuck away your Bible
under your trusting head!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:14-16

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

The Bible Is Like A Mirror ~

The Bible is like a mirror,
it reflects yourself so true
it shows all the hidden sin
yet living inside of you.

But if you never read it,
how will you ever glean
the areas in your life
God still needs to make clean.

The Bible is like a mirror,
it reflects your heart so true
it shows what is keeping
God disconnected from you.

But if you don’t study it,
God cannot lead or direct
you to see how sinfulness
has an everlasting effect.

The Bible is like a mirror,
His reflection should be in you
but, you must apply it . . .
in your life ~ for this to be true!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 3:2

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we
shall be: but we know that, when he
shall appear, we shall be like him;
for we shall see him as he is.

My Heart’s Response ~

My mind said to me,
look at what you can do
my heart responded . . .
Lord, not without you.

My mind told me,
all this could be yours
my heart answered . . .
don’t open those doors.

My mind stressed to me,
see all you can enjoy
my heart advised . . .
don’t fall for satan’s ploy.

My mind reasoned with me,
you needn’t be concerned
my heart spoke clearly . . .
that’s not what you’ve learned.

My mind said to me,
ah, go ahead and just do it
my heart told me . . .
don’t listen to that evil spirit!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 4:8-10

Again, the devil taketh him up into
an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth
him all the kingdoms of the world,
and the glory of them;

And saith unto him, All these things
will I give thee, if thou wilt fall
down and worship me.

Then saith Jesus unto him,
Get thee hence, Satan: for it
is written, Thou shalt worship
the Lord thy God, and him only
shalt thou serve.

Itchy Ears ~

Itchy ears,
God, no longer fear
don’t want anymore
the truth to hear.

Sound teaching,
causes them to run
straight to preachers
who to sin will shun.

Itchy ears,
God, no longer follow
His Words to them
all now just hollow.

Gospel’s altered,
is what they want
so their sinful lusts
don’t come to haunt.

Itchy ears,
satan has deafened
to the truth . . .
hearts now deadened!

~~~~~~

2 Timothy 4:3-4

For the time will come when
they will not endure sound doctrine;
but after their own lusts shall they
heap to themselves teachers,
having itching ears; And they shall
turn away their ears from the truth,
and shall be turned unto fables.

Eager Heart’s Waiting ~

May the love of God,
our eager heart’s still . . .
may we have His peace
waiting for His will.

For what He promised,
is yet to be done . . .
as we anticipate
the coming of His Son.

May the love of God,
our heart’s safely keep
as one of His own
beloved and dear sheep.

For what He has spoken,
will surely come true
when Jesus returns
one day for me and you.

May the love of God,
our patient heart’s fill . . .
as we eagerly await
may His calm they still!

~~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 3:5

And [may] the Lord direct
your hearts into the love of God,

If Today You Hear ~

If today you hear,
God’s beseeching voice
it will cause His people
to cheer and rejoice.

For one more sheep,
in His green pasture
is one more soul
satan can’t capture.

If today you heed,
Jesus’ invitation
you’ll receive the gift
of eternal salvation.

For one more person,
in His flock gleaned
is one more life
from satan redeemed.

If today you pray,
for God your heart to heal
one more rejoicing knee . . .
to Him will bow and kneel!

~~~~~~

Psalm 95:6-7

O come, let us worship
and bow down: let us
kneel before the Lord
our maker.

For he is our God;
and we are the people
of his pasture, and the
sheep of his hand.
To day if ye will
hear his voice,

From Brokenness to Wholeness ~

In the broken places,
is where Jesus meets us
so we may find the strength
in Him to fully trust.

He is able to see through,
the cracks and holes
for He can look into
the depth of our souls.

In the broken spaces,
of our shattered hearts
Jesus understands
why we’re falling apart.

He knows the anguish,
of our desperation
He gets the despair
in our supplication.

In the broken places,
filled with hopelessness
it’s when Jesus brings us
healing and wholeness!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 147:3

He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.

Through Life’s Trials ~

Through life’s many trials,
there can be no denials
for those who in God trust
well knowing He is just.

Victory we can claim,
when we call upon His name
though tested are we still
we yet seek to know His will.

Through life’s tribulations,
come various temptations
for those with a Savior
redeemed by grace and favor.

Victorious we can be,
for God helps us to see
the evil in the darkness
so to flee its wickedness.

Through life’s many upsets,
there can be no regrets . . .
for those who Jesus believe
satan cannot deceive!

1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God,
which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.

My Feet Have Slipped ~

My feet have slipped,
a thousand times . . .
they have stumbled into
satan’s land mines.

They have wandered,
both far and wide
they have retreated
in a race to hide.

My feet have plunged,
into many a pit
they have caused me
from the truth to split.

They have traveled,
without a thought
they have ventured
from all once taught.

My feel have roamed,
they have strayed and slipped
yet, by the mercy of God . . .
He kept them in His grip!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 94:18-19

When I said, My foot slippeth;
thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.

In the multitude of my thoughts
within me thy comforts
delight my soul.
