Heavenly Minded People ~

Saintly people,
right on earth here
waiting for Jesus . . .
to again appear.

Human bodies,
echoing God’s love
biding our time . . .
til we’re with Him above.

Earthly beings,
living in unity
awaiting to spend . . .
with Jesus eternity.

Foreigners and aliens,
born again anew
ready for Jesus . . .
to make all things new.

Heavenly minded people,
a body of one
reflecting the Life, the Truth
the Way of the Son!

John 17:21

That they all may be one;
as thou, Father, art in me,

A Walk Worthy Of My Talk ~

Lord, may my walk,
be worthy of my talk
may it resonate You . . .
in all I say and do.

May it be suitable,
to You applaudable
may it be observed
as a walk reserved.

Lord, may my walk,
be worthy of my talk
may it bring to You . . .
the glory You are due.

May it be regarded,
as a walk discarded
of a list of regulations
for one of regeneration.

Lord, may my walk,
be worthy of my talk
may there be unity . . .
in their pursuit of purity!

I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord,

Sticky Note From God ~09.24.20~

Psalm 119:103

 


Like Honey ~

I hear all kinds of evil,
things spoken and said
but, I don’t let them . . .
into my heart or head.

Instead I read my Bible,
daily the Word I study
for the grace of Jesus
to me is just like honey.

Its sweetness is pure,
it comforts and soothes
closer to God my soul
it motivates and moves.

I hear all sorts of words,
that are meant to offend
but, my faith in Jesus
I will always defend.

For, like a bee to a hive,
to Him I am drawn . . .
His words of hope and peace
I’d much rather dwell upon!

~~~~~~~

Proverbs 16:24

Gracious words
are like a honeycomb,
sweetness to the soul
and health to the body.

Psalm 119:165

Great peace have they which
love thy law: and nothing
shall offend them.

Good Morning Quote ~09.24.20~

 

 


A New Life In Christ~

A new life in Christ,
works needed no more
now grace and love
opens heaven’s door.

For all things old,
no longer acceptable
once Jesus became . . .
our sin’s receptacle.

A new life in Christ,
death to the law
no longer under
it’s working claw.

For Jesus died,
to set us all free
so under bondage
we’d no longer be.

A new life if Christ,
a matter of the heart
a gift to each of us . . .
only God can impart!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

For with the heart man believeth
unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession
is made unto salvation.

Totally Surrendered ~

Totally surrendered,
God wants it all
all that you have
nothing is too small.

You need to give Him,
all of your heart
He wants the whole of it
not just a tiny part.

Totally surrendered,
God wants to see
how much you want
like Jesus to be.

You need to submit,
to His perfect will
you must be willing
to wait and be still.

Totally surrendered,
God wants to know
how much you want
in Him to grow.

You have to let go,
of your selfish desires
you must be ready
for all He requires.

Totally surrendered,
God wants all of you
but you must want . . .
all of Him too!

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by

My eyes have seen,

they have been given
a new glorious sight.

For once they were closed,
to the Truth and the Way
but now they observe
God’s mercy each day.

My eyes were shown,
Jesus’ Love and Grace
they have seen the light
now the Life they embrace.

For once they were shut,
but now they clearly see
the promise of peace
God has awaiting for me.

My eyes have observed,
the Light of salvation
and now they hold hope
in Christ’s resurrection!

God Gazes From Above ~

God gazes from above,
He’s looking to find
those searching for Him
with all their heart and mind.

He sees not a one,
not one who is seeking
all have turned aside
no one for Him is looking.

God looks to the East,
their souls to Him are idle
He scans to the West
they are their own idols.

He looks to the South,
no – not even one
He looks to the North
their hearts He has none.

God looks and He looks,
all across the seas . . .
but love for the Lord
isn’t in the hearts of these!

God knows your heart,

before you can form the words
He knows what you’ll pray.

God knows your mind,

He knows your every thought
even before you do.

Before to Him you make a plea,
He knows what will be said
before you can make a sentence
He knows what’s in your head.

God know your heart,
He knows your mind too . . .
that is why He is always
thinking ahead of you!

The tempest is a blowing,
but His amazing trust
keeps His faithful standing

Some heart’s affections,

others are in the joy

Some heart’s emotions,
are in the here and now
others are on the ooh
the aha and the wow.

But, my heart’s attentions,
are in the second coming
when Jesus returns . . .
as our Savior and King.

Some heart’s affinities,
are in worldly measures
but, my heart’s affections
are in my heavenly treasure!

Matthew 13:44

Again, the kingdom of heaven

It took all of His strength,

Today God sent to me,

but I’m happy to say . . .
I’m patiently resting!

Sticky Note From God ~07.12.20~

2 Timothy 3:16-17


Perusing God’s Word~

Today I am perusing,
my Bible in my hand
with the intent . . .
to follow its command.

I’m reading carefully,
what God has to say
with the intent . . .
to listen and obey.

Today I’m pouring over,
the verses on the page
with the intent . . .
their wisdom I’ll engage.

I’m studying each word,
looking up their meaning
with the intent . . .
my soul they’ll be feeding.

Today I’m perusing,
my Bible I am scouring
for God’s Word I know . . .
I need to be devouring!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 2:15

Study to shew thyself
approved unto God,
a workman that needeth
not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing
the word of truth.

Good Morning Quote ~07.12.20~


Heavy On My Mind ~

When my cares,
on me weigh . . .
that’s when to God
I kneel and pray.

For when they stay,
heavy on my mind
there is no peace
that I can find.

When my worries,
creep into my life
that’s when onto Jesus
I give Him my strife.

For when they linger,
in my thoughts
they leave me weary
and oh, so fraught.

When my concerns,
weigh me down
I turn to God
for a heart sound.

For I know no other,
thing for me to do
but cast my cares . . .
Lord onto You!

~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

Casting all your care
upon him;
for he careth for you.

God, My Tranquility ~

God, my Tranquility,
my Peace, my Calm
You are to my soul
a healing balm.

You alone provide,
the rest that I need
when in Your Word
I graze and feed.

God, my Quietude,
my Repose, My Rest
Your love and mercy
keeps me daily blessed.

You silence my heart,
with Your still small voice
You are the reason
in truth I rejoice.

God my Tranquility,
my Comfort, my Lull
may my trust in You
never grow dim or dull!

~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 4:6

Better is an handful
with quietness,
than both the hands full
with travail
and vexation of spirit.

Be Uncompromising ~

Be unshakeable,
in the power of His might
be unbendable
to stand fast and fight.

Be unyielding,
to the wiles of the devil
be uncompromising
to all things evil.

Be unfailing,
in the Word be grounded
be unwavering
so not to be confounded.

Be unflinching,
to your transformation
be unrelenting
in your moderation.

Be unremitting,
to what you know is true
be unfaltering
when satan comes after you.

Hold on to your faith,
be unshakeable
hold on to the truth
and you’ll be unbreakable!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10

Be strong in the Lord
and in the power of
His strength

1Corinthians 16:13

Watch, stand fast
in the faith,
be brave, be strong.

Are You Ready To Go ~

Are you ready to go,
with Jesus to the Cross
are you ready . . .
for that bridge to cross?

Are you ready to go,
and repent and confess
are you ready . . .
to be eternally blessed?

Are you ready to go,
deep within your heart
are you ready . . .
for a new life to start?

Are you ready to go,
into the depth of your soul
are you ready . . .
for Jesus to make you whole?

Are you ready to go,
can this bridge you get across
are you ready to be saved . . .
by the power of the Cross?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 1:18

 

‘For the preaching of the cross
is to them that perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved
it is the power of God.”

Wise Eyes ~

Wise eyes,
they look not
at things . . .
that are fraught.

Fraught with sin,
riddled with evil
for wise eyes know . . .
the works of the devil.

Wise eyes,
they look away
at things . . .
that cause decay.

Decay of hearts,
corruption of minds
for wise eyes know . . .
how satan blinds.

Wise eyes,
are full of light . . .
that is why darkness
they can fight!

~~~~~~

Matthew 6:22

The light of the body is the eye:
if therefore thine eye be single,
thy whole body shall be full of light.

The Children of Knowledge ~

The children of knowledge,
walk in the Light . . .
yet everyday darkness
they still have to fight.

They wear the breastplate,
of their faith and love
to protect themselves
from wicked powers above.

The children of awareness,
are watchful and wise
they can see right through
satan’s disguises and lies.

They wear the helmet,
of eternal hope
the Word of God
is their righteous robe.

The children of Light,
walk in all of God’s ways
they do not fear . . .
the end time days!

~~~~~~~

1Thessalonians 5:8

But let us, who are of the day,
be sober, putting on the breastplate
of faith and love; and for an helmet,
the hope of salvation.

Sticky Note From God ~05.30.20

Hebrews 4:12


Signs Of The Times ~

Signs of the times,
everywhere you look
all once foretold . . .
in the Good Book.

Rebellion rampant,
morality unbridled
unbelievers in God
defiance entitled.

Seductive beguilers,
lovers of gratification
lust and sin loaded
reeking of corruption.

Hatred unrestrained,
ingrates thankless
pleasure seekers
unruly and godless.

Covetousness amok,
seducers worsening
all because satan . . .
is evil and deceiving!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:1-13

This know also, that in
the last days perilous
times shall come.

For men shall be lovers
of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers,
disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection,
trucebreakers, false accusers,
incontinent, fierce, despisers
of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures
more than lovers of God;

Oh, To Hear His Voice ~

Oh, to hear His voice in clarity,
confusion to come to cease
to rid our life of all anxiety
with the infusion of His peace.

To know His voice of wisdom,
all foolishness put to an end
to listen for His instructions
on life’s every path and bend.

To know His voice of counsel,
all bad advice to be banished
to oust the voice of darkness
until wickedness has vanished.

To know His voice of rest,
all fear brought to its knees
to drive out the enemy
and watch him as he flees.

To know His voice of truth,
all deception put to bed
to cast out satan’s trickery
so we can be Spirit lead.

Oh, to hear His voice in clarity,
is our Shepherd’s prayer
to rid our lives of anxiety . . .
so to find rest in His care!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“And other sheep I have,
which are not of this fold:

them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice;

and there shall be one fold,
and one shepherd.”

God Has It All Figured Out ~

If you live by faith,
you’ll not have doubt
that everything God
has all figured out.

For you understand,
He is omnipotent
and all that He does
is divinely significant.

If you live by faith,
in God you do trust
you know He’s always
holy, fair and just.

For you believe,
He is omniscient
and you recognize
He’s always consistent.

If you live by faith,
God you will not doubt
for you know He knows
how things will work out!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:8-9

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Christ Preached ~

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more sinners  . . .
they could reach.

If Jesus’ message,
from pulpits they’d tell
less unsaved . . .
would go to hell.

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more lost sheep . . .
they could teach.

If the moral law,
they were to read
less wanderers . . .
they would breed.

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more unbelievers . . .
may heed their speech!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 4:2

Preach the word;
be instant in season,
out of season; reprove,
rebuke, exhort with all
long suffering and doctrine.

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
