The Way of the Upright ~

Teach me Lord,
to do Thy will
help me to be
patient and still.

Show me the way,
of the upright
give me wisdom
a holy insight.

Educate me Lord,
to know Your desire
help me to do
all You require.

Lead me along,
the path of goodness
help me to live
a life of pureness.

Teach me Lord,
the ways of Your will
with Your power
may my life You fill!

Needy People ~

Needy people,
are all around
not too hard
to be found.

Needing saving,
from addiction
needing Jesus
not rejection.

Needy people,
are everywhere
burdened down
by desperate care.

Needing hope,
from destitution
needing Jesus
not persecution.

Needy people,
needing God’s favor
the love and grace
of a risen Savior!

~~~~~~

Psalm 82:3-4

“Defend the poor and fatherless:
do justice to the afflicted
and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy:
rid them out of the hand of
the wicked.”

Your Wall Will Fall ~

Your wall will come down,
it too can fall
if on God’s power
you willingly call.

Your wall will crumble,
it too can come apart
it you trust God
with all your soul and heart.

Your wall will topple,
it too can collapse
if you will give God
your circumstance.

Your wall will weaken,
it too can flatten out
if you give to God
all your fear and doubt.

Your wall will fall,
it too will be demolished
if you believe God . . .
anything can be accomplished!

~~~~~~~~

Joshua 6:20

“So the people shouted when
the priests blew with the trumpets:
and it came to pass, when the people
heard the sound of the trumpet,
and the people shouted with a great shout,
that the wall fell down flat,
so that the people went up into the city,
every man straight before him,
and they took the city.”

The Power Of God ~

The power of God,
is inside of you
there isn’t anything
that you cannot do.

But, you must believe,
He will give the might
for every battle
that you have to fight.

The power of God,
is in His Son
there is enough
for everyone.

But, you must have faith,
His Spirit is in you
if the impossible
you really want to do.

The power of God,
is available to all
if on His strength
we remember to call!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10

“Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might.”

Not I, But CHRIST ~

Not I, but Christ,
is why I have grace
to keep to the course
to stay in the race.

For without Jesus,
I’d couldn’t go the distance
and to temptation
I’d have no resistance.

Not I, but Christ,
is why I can cope
to remain steadfast
to maintain the hope.

For, without Jesus,
I’ve not the might
nor the power
to sustain the fight.

Not I, but Christ,
makes all possible
for with Jesus . . .
I am unstoppable!

Increasing Joy ~

Once into my life,
Jesus increased
for worldly things
my joy decreased.

For when in my life,
Jesus came in
joy overcame
pleasure for sin.

Once into my heart,
Jesus increased
more joy into it
He daily released.

For when in my heart,
Jesus grew bigger
joy killed the desire
to be a sinner.

Once into my life,
Jesus increased
my joy has never
ceased or decreased!

~~~~~~~~

John 3:30

“He must increase,
but I must decrease.”

Isaiah 29:19

“The meek also shall increase
their joy in the Lord,
and the poor among men shall
rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.”

Washed In The Blood ~

Jesus’ blood,
washed over me
now His love
has set me free.

Free from quilt,
free from blame
for, upon Himself
He took my shame.

Jesus’ blood,
flooded over me
flushing out sin’s
grit and debris.

At not a cost,
His grace I attained
now through faith
I’m no longer sin-stained.

Jesus’s blood,
washed over me
giving me a life . . .
now sin free!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 1:5-6

“And from Jesus Christ,
who is the faithful witness,
and the first begotten
of the dead, and the prince
of the kings of the earth.
Unto him that loved us,
and washed us from our
sins in his own blood,

And hath made us kings
and priests unto God
and his Father;
to him be glory
and dominion
for ever and ever.”
Amen.

My Foot Has Slipped ~

My foot has slipped,
more than I can tally
on mountain tops
or while in a valley.

But no matter where,
I would slip
Jesus on me
always had a grip.

My foot has skidded,
time and time again
it’s plunged into
treacherous terrain.

But, no matter when,
I would slide
Jesus was always
at my side.

My foot has slipped,
down many slopes
but, by the grace of God
I never lost my hope!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 94:18

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

Taking Up My Cross ~

First thing in the morning,
before I get out of bed
I take up my cross . . .
so by Jesus I can be lead.

For, when I pick it up,
it gives me the grace
to keep my arrogance
in its rightful place.

First thing in the morning,
I disrobe myself of pride
I lift up my cross
and let it be my guide.

For when I pick it up,
it gives me liberty
from vanity holding me
in conceit’s captivity.

First thing in the morning,
before I get up and get dressed
I take up my cross . . .
so with humility I’ll be blessed!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 9:23

“And he said to them all,
If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and
take up his cross daily,
and follow me.”

Eternally Secured ~

You may try,
but, I can’t be moved
for my soul to Jesus
is irreversibly glued.

You may attempt,
but, I can’t be pried
for my heart to Jesus
is indefinitely tied.

You may endeavor,
but, I won’t be persuaded
for my life to Jesus
is securely barricaded.

You may aspire,
but, I cannot be lured
for my mind to Jesus
is eternally secured.

You may try,
every trick in the book
but my soul to Jesus . . .
is permanently hooked!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 62:1-2

“Truly my soul waiteth upon God:
from him cometh my salvation.
“He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.”

Don’t Be Shy ~

Don’t be shy,
don’t hesitate
your prayers to God
do resonate.

For whatever we ask,
God promises to hear
so get rid of your doubt
and over your fear.

Don’t be bashful,
don’t vacillate
your prayers to God
do captivate.

For whatever we need,
God promises to supply
so stop questioning Him
with if, but and why.

Don’t be shy,
don’t be timid
let your prayers
to God be lifted!

passionately on fire.

so my trust in You . . .
may never end or cease!

We All Need Jesus ~

 

We all need grace,
sufficient and amble
we need a full dose
not just a small sample.

We all need mercy,
tender and abundant
we need a taste of it
glorious and triumphant.

We all need compassion,
precious and priceless
we need an infusion
of God’s forgiveness.

We all need love,
eternal and everlasting
we need an injection
of peace that’s surpassing.

We all need Jesus,
each and every one of us
we need someone whom
with our soul we can trust!

unto the throne of grace,

Sticky Note to God ~09.02.18 ~


Our One True Foundation ~

Storms come and go,
into our lives every day
some last only for hours
others hunker in to stay.

So we must be prepared,
for whatever may blow
as the timing of a storm
we can never know.

The framework of our faith,
must be strong and steady
for some storms are gentle
while others can be deadly.

We must build our faith,
on the Rock of our Salvation
lest we get knocked off
our One True Foundation.

Storms come and go,
into each of our lives . . .
and we must be ready
for each one that arrives!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 3:11

“For other foundation
can no man lay than
that is laid,
which is Jesus Christ.”

Dependent of God ~

If on God we’re dependent,
we’ll want to know His will
before we go do this or that
we’ll gladly remain still.

We will pray for direction,
for guidance in all things
waiting until we receive
His reverent blessings.

If on God we’re to rely,
we’ll seek His holy counsel
whatever is not of His will
we will happily cancel.

We’ll need to understand,
His plans are not our own
once we see everything
is controlled from His throne.

If on God we’re dependent,
we’ll need to be submissive
to His will for our lives . . .
we must not be dismissive!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:15

“For that ye ought to say,
If the Lord will,
we shall live,
and do this, or that.”

Daily Seeking God’s Face ~

Seeking God’s face,
leads to eternal life
forgiveness of sin
peace from all strife.

It leads to blessings,
His daily provisions
gives understanding
much needed protection.

Seeking God’s face,
leads to faith and hope
offers instructions
gives grace to cope.

It leads to wisdom,
ongoing strength and renewal
it causes rejoicing
overcomes upheaval.

Seeking God’s face,
each day is a must
for it provides
continual trust!

“Seek the Lord and his strength,
seek his face continually.”

A Warm Summer Day ~

Give me a warm summer day,
a cool breeze on my face
and I’ll tell you all about . . .
my Father’s mercy and grace.

For when I’m basking in,
the warmth of His love
I find myself engulfed
in His peace from above.

Give me a long lazy day,
with nothing else to do
and I’ll tell you just how
Jesus making all things new.

For when I’m just chilling,
His favor consumes me
and all I can think about
are the things I can’t see.

Give me a warm summer day,
far from the heat of things
and I’ll tell you all about . . .
the hope my Savior brings!

Walk By Faith ~

Walking by faith,
and not on feeling
will have us on . . .
our knees kneeling.

For when we see,
joy is a choice
whatever our care
we will rejoice.

Walking by faith,
and not on emotion
sets the Holy Spirit’s
power into motion.

For when we discover,
no matter our worry
His strength will give us
a thankful journey.

Walking by faith,
to know God’s will
cannot our praises
stop or still!

God’s Comfort ~

Thank you God,
for comforting me
when my cares
are all I see.

Thank you Father,
for Your Son
who my burdens
takes each one.

Thank you God,
for comforting me
when riding out
the storms at sea.

Thank you Father,
for Your Spirit
who gives to me
the grace and grit.

Thank you God,
for comforting me
when troubles come
with trust in Thee!

“Blessed be God, even the
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Who comforteth us in all
our tribulation, that we
may be able to comfort them
which are in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith
we ourselves are comforted of God.

On The Path To Heaven ~

Lord may Your steps,
establish my pathway
so I may follow You
each and every day.

Take me to places,
where You want me go
so the Life and Truth
I may live and know.

Lord, take these feet of clay,
shake from them the dust
so I may leave footsteps
of faith, hope and trust.

Guide me as I travel,
on this sparsely walked road
so I may not be lured away
when heavy is my load.

Lord, may Your steps,
lead and guide me
so on the path to heaven . . .
I can walk along with Thee!

Faith Like Jesus ~

I want to be like Jesus,
in every single way
I want His life to be
part of me every day.

I want to be full of light,
not dull and lifeless
I want the trust Jesus had
to be my daily focus.

I want to be humble,
not fearful and weak
I want Jesus’ strength
each day of the week.

I want to be joyful,
not bitter and resentful
I want Jesus’ life in mine
day-by-day to resemble.

I want to beat the desert heat,
to calm the storms at sea
I want the faith Jesus had
day-to-day inside of me!

“Even the righteousness of God
which is by faith of Jesus Christ
unto all and upon all them
that believe: for there is

Open your eyes to Jesus,

and He will give to you
a new a glorious sight.

Open your heart to Jesus,
give Him a home in your life
and He will upon Himself
take your cares and strife.

Open your mind to Jesus,
let Him show you the way
and He will graciously lead
you each and every day.

Open your ears to Jesus,
listen to the words He said
and He will make sure
to heaven you are led.

Open you eyes to Jesus
let Him enter into your soul
and your mind and heart . . .
the Holy Spirit will control!
