Sticky Note From God ~11.26.22~

John 16:13


That Old Man ~




Sometimes that old man,
sneaks his way back in
for our souls he wants
to repossess and win.

So he taunts us with our past,
dangling in front of us
the delights we once found
in our former worldly lusts.

He tells us we needn’t be,
so committed to God’s Word
that we can still find delight
if the truth could be blurred.

He tantalizes us with things,
once giving us such pleasure
telling us they’re more rewarding
then our heavenly treasure.

Sometimes that old man,
in our lives creeps back in
but we who are saved . . .
know he is all about the sin!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:22-23

That ye put off concerning
the former conversation
the old man, which is corrupt
according to the deceitful lusts;

Romans 7.18

For I know that in me
(that is, in my flesh,)
dwelleth no good thing:
for to will is present with me;
but how to perform that
which is good I find not.

May God Bless You ~

May God bless you,
each and every day
may His truths light up
the path along your way.

May His purposes,
and plans for your life
help you to overcome
all your inner strife.

May God’s strength,
you daily pursue
may His tender mercy
help to empower you.

May your mind find,
His peace and calm
may His Word be used
as your healing balm.

May you seek God,
with all your mind and heart
may you find His mercy
upon each day’s new start!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

“It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.”

Words Of Truth ~

Words of truth,
we need to use
not the ones
that abuse.

For the tongue,
speaks from the soul
and we must be
of it in control.

Words timely,
seasoned with grace
will help others
their doubts to face.

For the mouth,
can help uplift
those whose faith
has gone adrift.

Words edifying,
we need to speak
not ones to God
that stink and reek!

~~~~

Ephesians 4:29

Let no corrupt communication
proceed out of your mouth,
but that which is good to the use
of edifying, that it may minister
grace unto the hearers.

Colossians 4:6

Let your speech be always
with grace, seasoned with salt,
that ye may know how ye ought
to answer every man.

Wisely Walking ~

Father I thank You,
today for Your grace
and the wisdom I need
to wisely run the race.

For, I know of the evil,
I will witness today
and to walk cautiously
must be my mainstay.

Father I thank you,
today for Your direction
for the wisdom to have
in the world no connection.

For, though times are dark,
You make it clear to me
how living like a fool
I do not want to be.

Father I thank you,
for helping me to walk wise
so that I can be mindful
of satan’s traps and lies!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-17

“See then that ye walk circumspectly,
not as fools, but as wise,

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what
the will of the Lord is.”

Ephesians 5:8-11


Show Me Your Ways Lord~

Lord, show me Your ways,
reveal them to me
lead and guide my steps
to where they should be.

Grant me Your mercy,
always be by my side
for the road is too rough
and the path is so wide.

Instruct and teach me Lord,
in the way I should go
for the hills are too lofty
and the valleys so low.

Encourage me daily,
to hold on to Your hand
for the canyons are too steep
and the mountains so grand.

Lord, show me Your path,
teach me in Your ways
let Your light lead me . . .
for the rest of my days!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 32:8

“I will instruct thee and teach thee
in the way which thou shalt go:

Life of peace,

Shield of strength,

Holy Spirit led.

Lamp of faith,
Truth and peace
may Your power . . .

Things That Are True ~

When I think about,
things that are true
Lord, I can’t help . . .
but to think of You.

For You are honest,
righteous and pure
only through You
does sin have a cure.

When I think about,
things that are lovely
Lord, I think about . . .
my hope lively.

For all that is good,
worthy and right
are justified through
the truth in Your light.

When I think about,
all that is true . . .
Lord, I cannot help
but to praise You!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.

Ephesians 6:14-16


Hard To Focus ~

At times it’s hard to focus,
on what God has to say . . .
with all the distractions
disrupting me every day.

I open up my Bible,
but, the pages seem to dull
and though I see the words
they don’t sink into my skull.

At times it’s hard to focus,
on things that really matter
with all the interruptions
my thoughts begin to scatter.

My mind begins to wander,
making it hard to see
the Way, Truth and the Life
that is right in front of me.

At times it’s hard to focus,
so today I will pray . . .
Lord, keep my heart fixed
and my mind on You stayed!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 57:7

“My heart is fixed,
O God, my heart is fixed:

I will sing and give praise.”

Isaiah 26:3

Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.

Still The Wise Seek Him ~

Still the wise seek Him,
they look to the Morning Star
they follow where He may lead
no matter how near or far.

They come to praise Him,
to worship and to adore
the wise still seek will Him
as the ones did from before.

The wise still offer Him,
gifts from their hearts
their faith, trust and hope
on Him they impart.

They hunger and thirst,
after His righteousness
they seek the Life and Way
with wholeheartedness.

Still the wise seek Him,
this Babe, the Child, their Savior
for they know He is God’s gift . . .
of His love, mercy and favor!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:9-10

“When they had heard
the king, they departed; and,

lo, the star, which they saw
in the east, went before them,

till it came and stood
over where the young child was.

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

God’s Gift To Believers ~

God’s gift to believers,
is Jesus inside of you . . .
His strength and might
for everything you do.

For without Him inside,
we would be powerless
to fight off the rulers
of the present darkness.

God’s gift to believers,
is His Spirit living in you . . .
to help you hold on to
all that is pure and true.

For without His guidance,
we would be helpless
to battle the authorities
of today’s evilness.

God’s gift to believers,
is having eternal hope . . .
to help us each day
with the enemy to cope!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Any Room For Jesus ~

Is there any room for Jesus,
in your home today . . .
will you merrily welcome Him
into your life to stay?

Or will you be too busy,
in the CHRISTmas rush
so that to His presence
you give Him the brush?

Is there any room for Jesus,
in your heart this year
will you joyfully welcome Him
with gladness and cheer?

Or will you be too frazzled,
with all you must go and do
so to have no space for Him
til the holidays are through?

Is there any room for Jesus,
in your life today
or will you also have . . .
no place for Him to stay!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:7

“And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger;
because there was no room

John 16:13


Not Just on Thanksgiving ~

It’s not just on Thanksgiving,
that we’re to be thankful . . .
it’s not only on this day
that we’re to be grateful.

It’s about being satisfied,
each day in every way
it’s about our attitude
in all we do and say.

It’s not about the tasty food,
on today’s white linen table
it’s not about the fine dining
on Thanksgiving Day’s staples.

It’s about the provisions,
God gives us all year through
it’s about what with them
we choose and opt to do.

It’s not about what we have,
or counting all our blessings
it’s not about the pumpkin pie
or the turkey’s sausage dressing.

It’s all about us sharing,
with those who have not
it’s all about helping others . . .
in deed not just in thought!

~~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 1:3

“We are bound to thank God
always for you, brethren,
as it is meet, because that
your faith groweth exceedingly,
and the charity of every
one of you all toward each
other aboundeth;”

If I Were More Like My Master ~

If I were more like my Master . . .
I’d walk miles in the sand
just to lend someone
a helping, loving hand.

I’d be compassionate and kind,
gracious and merciful too
I’d give godly instructions
and show them what to do.

I’d calm down the waves,
walk on the turbulent sea
I’d encourage others to have
the faith to follow after me.

I’d see the lost and unsaved,
all the hungry people to feed
I would let them all know . . .
salvation was what they need.

I’d travel to every city,
spread the Good News around
I’d speak of Jesus’ forgiveness
how new life can be found.

If I were more like my Master . . .
I’d have a spirit of servitude
humility and meekness
would be my constant attitude!

In The Wilderness of My Soul ~

Lord, in the wilderness of my soul,
there are valleys deep and low . . .
and sometimes I wander in them
not sure the direction I should go.

In my doubt I meet with despair,
and my thoughts turn to giving up
for in my desperation . . .
I don’t see Your grace in my cup.

Lord, in the wilderness of my soul,
there are mountains high and wide
and sometimes all I want to do
is just to run away and hide.

In my fear I meet with dread,
with each obstacle I come to
but, I know I must get past them
if I want to get closer to You.

Lord, there’s a wilderness in my soul,
a vast land of empty spaces
long roads for me to travel on
with plenty of rough places.

But, I know I’m on the path,
leading me straight to You . . . .
and with Your strength and help
I know I’ll make it through!

A Buffet of Hope and Trust ~

Every day is a smorgasbord,
a buffet of renewed pardon
a fresh supply of God’s grace
found in His Word garden.

I hunger after what is holy,
to help me through the day
only in the Word can I find
the Light to lead my way.

My appetites are gratified,
from the verses that I read
for they reassure me
Jesus is all I’ll ever need.

I thirst after the Truth,
reading the Word will bring
it satisfied my hunger pangs
it’s like dining with my King.

I need a steady filling,
of God’s mercy and His love
it’s like manna from heaven
coming down from above.

Every day is a smorgasbord,
a buffet of hope and trust  . . .
for the Word is like a banquet
Jesus set up for each of us!

Good Morning Quote ~08.07.21~


Waters Healing~

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of life
makes us beg for relief.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove its own heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

We thirst for waters healing,
a peaceful resting place
where we can forget the pain
that’s so unbearable to face.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
only God can relieve . . .
the throbbing in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the anguished soul true relief!

Lord, show me Your will,

Lead me in Your truth,

Instruct me to wait,
until Your ready for me
grant me Thy patience
till it’s Your will I see.

Train me to follow,
after Your every deed
offer me Your wisdom
to see You’re all I need.

Enlighten my soul,
to Your every urge . . .
keep me in Your sight
until our paths merge!

I Thirst & Hunger ~

I hunger for the truth,
like a lion I search all day
for God’s provisions
to uphold me on my way.

I get down on my knees,
seek to find His face
I ask Him to sustain me
in the bounty of His grace.

I thirst for His wisdom,
like a deer I pant all day
for God to encourage me
along the narrow way.

I desire to know His will,
to be in His love sated
so the joy of my salvation
will keep me forever elated.

I hunger for the truth,
after wisdom I do thirst
I pray God will fill me . . .
with faith until I burst!

who hunger and thirst

Where Faith and Love Dwells ~

Sometimes I wander through,
 the valleys of my soul . . .
lingering near the streams of life
when I felt well and whole.

I ponder the times Jesus filled in,
the empty and void space
where His love for me flowed
like a river full of endless grace.

As I stroll along the rugged clefts,
I can see the hard times too
as I roam all around them
His mercy for me shines through.

I come across the mountains,
that I had to hike up to . . .
some of them I never thought
the hard climb I could ever do.

But I remember seeing Jesus,
standing upon the crest
calling down to me
“Come, I’ll give you rest.”

Sometimes I like to wander,
through life’s hills and dells
and go deep into my soul . . .
where faith and love dwells!

~~~~~

That Christ may dwell

that ye, being rooted

If Today You Would Hear ~

Today if you would hear,
if your ears you’d open
you will hear the truth
be told and spoken.

For God will speak,
right to your heart
closing the chasm
keeping you apart.

Today if you would listen,
you’d will be able to hear
Jesus calling you
to come close and near.

For He wants you to know,
for your sin’s He died
how He is waiting for you
with arms stretched out wide.

Today if you would hear,
what God has to say . . .
you will discover the Truth
to the new Life and Way!

Psalm 119:160


I See God’s Glory ~

I see God’s wonder,
I see His Light . . .
it does not fade
into the night.

It shines brighter,
than the morning sun
it radiates the Light
of His begotten Son.

I see the distance,
between God and man
I see His love . . .
fill the empty span.

I see the future,
forever it goes on
I see a hereafter
when all evil is gone.

I see God’s glory,
making all things new
and I pray you see it . . .
for yourself too!

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.
