Faith Springs Forth ~

Faith springs from the heart,
as mercy falls from above
the earth becomes enriched
by the grace of Jesus’ love.

Hope dwells internally,
the seed has been planted
all who willing come to Jesus
eternal salvation is granted.

Truth descends from heaven,
peace to earth Jesus brings
the world opens up its arm
to receive its King of Kings.

Righteousness sprinkles down,
on a land parched and dry
the God of all creation hears
His creature’s thirsty cry.

Faithfulness springs forward,
the earth receives a new start
mercy and truth have kissed . . .
warming the coldest of hearts!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 85.10-12

Mercy and truth are met
together; righteousness
and peace have kissed
each other.

Truth shall spring out
of the earth; and
righteousness shall
look down from heaven.

Yea, the Lord shall give
that which is good; and
our land shall yield
her increase.

Good Morning Quote ~01.21.21~


Spiritual Air ~

Some times a spiritual breath,
we all need to take in . . .
to expel the soot and grime
of living in a world full of sin.

We need to slowly inhale,
the promises of God Word
so we can draw upon . . .
the truth we have heard.

Sometimes we all need,
to come up for spiritual air . . .
so God our hearts and minds
He can renew and repair.

We need to oxidize our souls,
with all of God’s goodness
till we’re at peace and rest
with His almightiness.

Sometimes we all need,
to take a long breather . . .
so we can remind ourselves
just why we are a believer!

~~~~~~~~

Job 33:4

The spirit of God
hath made me,
and the breath
of the Almighty
hath given me life.

Into The Light Of Day ~

When all around me,
is cold and bleak . . .
when I’m feeling frail
fragile and weak.

I pick up my Bible,
to warm up my soul
knowing it’s Words
my heart will console.

When all around me,
is dark and dim . . .
when I’m feeling faint
helpless and grim.

I read the Scriptures,
to Lighten my spirits
knowing they’ll give me
hope without limits.

When all around me,
is cold, dark and gray . . .
God’s Word turns the night
into the Light of day!

Let The Truth Guide You ~

Let the truth guide you,
let it lead your way . . .
so on the narrow path
you’ll continue to stay.

For, without the truth,
there are only lies
causing you to take
your eyes off the prize.

Let the truth be your rule,
let it be your banner
so into the straight gate
you’ll be able to enter.

For, without the truth,
satan will try to deceive
making you doubt
everything you believe.

Let the truth guide you,
let it direct you too
listen and follow . .
Jesus’ voice in you!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:27-28

My sheep hear my voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:

And I give unto them
eternal life; and they
shall never perish,
neither shall any man
pluck them out of my hand.

Ephesians 6:17


Captive Thoughts ~

Capture my thoughts Lord,
gird me in Thy truth
let me follow Thy Word
as in the days of my youth.

With childlike faith,
take custody of my mind
keep me close to Thee
so Thy ways I can find.

Control and restrain me,
release not me from Thy hold
may my heart for Thee
turn not luke-warm or cold.

Let me not be disillusioned,
by the wisdom of man
seize upon my belief
show me Thy perfect plan.

Capture my thoughts Lord,
in my mind be in  control
I give to Thee my life . . .
let not man conquer my soul!

and every high thing that exalteth itself

~ A Thankful, Grateful Heart ~

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is appreciative . . .
one that to all Your blessings
is attuned and sensitive.

Let it be a heart,
that sings its daily praise
let it be my heartfelt gratitude
that to You I earnestly raise.

Let me have a heart,
truly thankful for all things
no matter what in my life
You should choose to bring

Let my heart flow with,
the rivers of Your peace
so my appreciation to You
I may continually release.

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is steadily hopeful
let it be the heart of one . . .
who is to You truly grateful!

God’s Amazing Light ~

Lord, give me a warm heart,
a spirit that is bright . . .
let me see everything
through Your amazing light.

Let me see morning’s dawn,
even when it’s bleak
let me see Your splendor
whenever You I seek.

Let me be grateful,
for each new day given
let me be thankful
even when storm driven.

Let me see the sunshine,
even when there’s rain
let me see the blue skies
even when I am in pain.

Lord, keep my heart warm,
uphold my spirit bright . . .
so when the night turns dark
I’ll see Your amazing light!

Sticky Note to God ~11.18.20~

Psalm 145:18


Entering Into The Faithful Race ~

 

I’m putting on my sneakers,
entering into the faithful race
so I’m cushioning my soul
with God’s mercy and His grace.

The contest that’s before me,
seems a million-miles long
but I will trust in Jesus . . .
to help me finish strong.

With Him running with me,
I’ll focus in on winning
the confidence He’ll provide
will keep me from sinning.

I’ll have a sense of purpose,
hope will be in my stride
I’ll stay true to the course
knowing He is at my side.

I’ll run with Jesus’ strength,
He’ll provide the assurance . . .
the crown of life will be my prize
for He’ll give me the endurance!

~~~~~~~~

which run in a race run all,

Serene Hearts ~

Serene hearts,
quiet and peaceful
have a faith . . .
heartfelt and trustful.

For they are sure,
God is in control
a truth that goes
deep into their soul.

Blissful minds,
happy and joyful
have a trust . . .
calm and restful.

For they know,
Jesus is near
and give to Him
all they fear.

Serene hearts,
minds blissful . . .
are those who are
eternally grateful!

Holding On To The Truth ~

Jesus didn’t say to go in fear,
or to fret throughout our day
He didn’t say to sit and worry
or to follow the anxious way.

He didn’t say to pursue after,
what this world has to offer
He didn’t say to be conformed
or to be a faith scoffer.

He didn’t say He’d leave us,
or that we’d be all alone
He didn’t say He didn’t care
or be left ever on our own.

He didn’t say to be lustful,
or to have eyes like the greedy
He didn’t say we would lack
be deprived, poor, or needy.

But, satan loves to skew,
and turn Jesus’ words around . . .
so we must hold on to the truth
not the lies, he uses to confound!

~~~~~~~~~

John 8:44b

When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar,
and the father of it.”

Good Morning Quote ~10.31.20~


God’s Ways Are Better ~

God’s ways are not ours,
for ours ways are skewed
and often God’s direction
we don’t want to include.

We think we understand,
what God wants us to do
but we fail to look at things
from His point of view.

God’s plans are not ours,
for ours are often rash
before consulting Him
out the door we dash.

We believe we can reason,
with our own reasoning
and to God’s instructions
we are not listening.

God’s ways and plans,
are always better . . .
when we follow them
to the letter!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.

While The Lord Is Still Near ~

Seek the Lord while He’s still near,
while His mercy can still be found
pray for Him to direct you . . .
while His Spirit is still around.

Give to the Lord your whole heart,
call on Him while you still can
appeal to Him to renew your faith
while He still hears the prayers of man.

Search the Lord while He is nearby,
ask Him to direct you His way
study the Word He has left you
while Light still shines on your day.

Call on the Lord while He’s still close,
ask Him to keep you from temptation
inquire that He shows you His will
while there’s still a way to salvation.

Seek the Lord while He’s still present,
for one day soon He won’t be near . . .
pray that you will heed His calling
while His grace and mercy are still here!

This Is My Truth ~

This is what it’s about,
this is faith, not doubt
this is believing . . .
without really seeing.

This is the one thing,
that hope can bring
knowing that eternity
isn’t some absurdity.

This is what I believe,
this is what I receive
God’s the only true One
and Jesus is His Son.

This is real salvation,
the legit foundation
this is to have trust . . .
only Jesus can save us.

This is my truth,
this is my reality
this is my belief
in totality!

All Lives Count To God~

To God,
all of our lives count . . .
He doesn’t care about
the arguments we mount.

For He knows we are,
all embedded with sin
it doesn’t matter to Him
the color of our skin.

To God,
all lives are relevant
no matter who we are
He holds no prejudice.

For He knows we are,
all created equally . . .
what matters most to Him
is treating others decently.

To God,
all lives are viable
everyone matters . . .
to Him all are valuable!

Return ~

Everywhere I look,
everywhere I turn . . .
Lord, I see the need
for so many to return.

Return from wandering,
from going astray
return back to . . .
the Life, Truth and Way.

Everywhere I step,
everywhere I go
Lord, I notice those
just going with the flow.

Flowing with the world,
conforming to its ways
following that wide path
leading from You away.

Lord, everywhere I look,
everything I see . . .
shows me all the hearts
needing to return to Thee!

~~~~~~~~~~

And I will give them an heart

thank You for Your mercy
forever grace and favor.

For though I was a sinner,
You still loved me . . .
now by faith I believe
in things I cannot see.

God, my King,
my Prince, my Redeemer
Your blood became
my transgression cleaner.

For my sins You forgave,
so that I may receive
eternal salvation
now that in You I believe.

God, my Father,
my Savior, my Christ
I am eternally grateful
for Your sacrifice!

Till He Comes For Me ~

Till for me He comes,
alone, I will not be
for Jesus is always . . .
right here next to me.

I will wait for Him,
without dread or fear
for my Lord and Savior
is always close and near.

Till for me He comes,
afraid, I will not be
for Jesus is always . . .
right here inside of me.

He will keep me safe,
as He makes His way
His peace I will claim
right up until that joyful day.

Till for me He comes,
fainthearted, I will not be
for His Spirit is always . . .
power and strength to me!

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!

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!

tears flow thankfully
down it’s grateful face.

Repentant tears,
never stop falling
for they always hear
repentance calling!

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

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!

In The Sea of Faith ~

Life is like a fish bowl,
we keep swimming around
in circles we revolve . . .
just like a merry-go-round.

At times we get dizzy,
and we’re left in a daze
it’s like we’re spinning
in a sea of milky-haze.

So many worries,
whirling all around . . .
it’s as if our problems
will never calm down.

But, if we looked over,
and see past the rim . . .
we’d see Jesus telling us
to put our faith in Him.

Life is like a fish bowl.
but it needn’t be . . .
if God we would only
put our trust in Thee!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:26

“And he saith unto them,
Why are ye fearful,

O ye of little faith?

God’s Searching Glance ~

God’s searching glance,

There is no secret place,

is penetrating . . .
thoughts and intentions
He’s always calculating.

He scans the whole world,
all day and all night
watches the good fight evil
right before His sight.

God’s searching glance,
constantly looks to find . . .
all those who trust Him
will a whole heart and mind!
