Of Good Courage Be ~

Be of good courage,
be glad exceedingly
for God wants to give you
His peace unceasingly.

He wants you to have,
a faith mightily strong
so you can make hope
your eternal song.

Of good courage be,
let your mind be at rest
God knows the cares
with today that you wrest.

He wants you to give Him,
all that is of concern
for His yoke is easy
just as is His burden.

Be of good courage,
rejoice and be joyful
for the One you trust
is loving and faithful

~~~~~~

Psalms 31:24

Be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
your heart, all ye that
hope in the Lord.

God Brings Me Comfort ~

God brings me comfort,
when I am afflicted
He brings me peace
when I feel conflicted.

My soul He soothes,
when I’m knee deep in trouble
my heart He calms . . .
when with cares I struggle.

God brings me comfort,
when down in the valley
His love causes me . . .
to rise up and to rally.

My mind He quiets,
when filled with stress
my thoughts He stills
when with worry I wrest.

God brings me comfort,
on Him I can rely . . .
to give me peace of mind
that only He can supply!

~~~~~

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Blessed be God, even the Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies,
and the God of all comfort;

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.

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Come unto me,
all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you,
and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

I rejoice in hope,
patient when need be
I pray and I pray . .
for things I can’t see.

for God to answer me

I get renewed,
each new day I live
I can count on God
His strength to give.

I grow not weary,
for I have eagle wings
to mount and rise
above difficult things.

I rejoice in hope,
I am anxious for not

give God all your worries

Afflicted ~

We are afflicted,
troubled and stressed
but, with God’s power
we are still blessed.

We may have to suffer,
for how we believe
but, each day more mercy
from God we receive.

We are persecuted,
stifled and oppressed
but, our faith in God
won’t let us be depressed.

We may have to endure,
hardship and pain
but, we count it all . . .
not for loss but for gain.

We are forlorn,
desperate and helpless
but, never are we . . .
in Jesus hopeless!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:8-10

 We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed; we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken;
cast down, but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus might
be made manifest in our body
.

It can be traumatic,
with issues terrifying

a faith fortifying.

Life can be burdensome,
with cares overwhelming
but, Jesus promised us . . .
the Holy Spirit’s indwelling.

It can be intense,

with Him we’ll be gathering.

Life can be frightful,
painfully sorrowful . . .
but, Jesus promised us
a life more hopeful!

Sticky Note To God ~10.17.22~

1 Peter 5:7


When A New Day Comes ~




When a new day comes,
for me to rise and greet
I cast all my worries
first thing at Jesus’ feet.

For then I can start,
the day feeling renewed
and my worldly cares
my thoughts can’t intrude.

When the alarm rings,
telling me it’s that time
I ask Jesus to help me
as out of bed I climb.

For I know without Him,
how hard it would be
if His strength wasn’t . . .
working throughout me.

When a new day comes,
before I get up and go . . .
my burdens like blankets
onto Jesus I off and throw!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

Praying you cast
all of your burdens
at Jesus’ feet

Good Morning Quote ~09.10.22~


S.O.S.

Today I sent to God,
a S.O.S . . .
He replied back to me
My child don’t you stress.

He told me He was working,
on an answer to my prayer
until then I was to relax
and not fall into despair.

I asked Him how long,
He was going to take
He said it would be soon
His decision He would make.

So I took His advice,
and rested in His care
knowing His response
was somewhere out there.

Today I sent to God,
a S.O.S . . .
He signaled back to me
into Him to deeper press!

Jesus Is My Friend ~

Jesus is my friend,
on Him I can count
to help me figure
all my problems out.

For, He will guide me,
though the process
on how over them
not to obsess.

Jesus is my friend,
on Him I can rely
for He is my daily
most valuable ally.

For, He teaches me,
what I should know
about how His Father
would have me to go.

Jesus is my friend,
in Him I find rest
for I know He has
for me only His best!

~~~~~~~~

John 15:15

I Can’t Control Tomorrow ~

I can’t control tomorrow,
I can barely do today . . .
that is why I give to Jesus
my cares all through the day.

For I need to be prudent,
with every given hour
so my mind can be filled
with His strength and power.

I can’t worry about tomorrow,
today has enough of its own
therefore I won’t let anxiety
in my thoughts make a home.

For I need to be cautious,
with what I let in my head
for God’s Word reassures me . . .
there’s nothing for me to dread.

I can’t control the evil,
nor the wicked things out there
but, I can control my thoughts
by being in constant prayer!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:34

Take therefore no thought
for the morrow: for the morrow
shall take thought for the things

Things Concerning Me ~

There are many things,
that concern me . . .
including things I can
and those I can’t see.

But, in God’s hands,
I leave them all to be
for I know He is working
something good in me.

There are a lot of things,
on my mind weighing . . .
and they get heavier
when I am not praying.

So for all and everything,
that to me is burdensome
I pray so that I may
all these things overcome.

There are many things,
I wish didn’t have to be
but, I know that God is . . .
perfecting faith in me!

The Lord will perfect that which

The Thunderbolts of Fear ~

The thunderbolt of fear,
is frightening and horrifying
as it releases its dread
with shocks of panic terrifying.

It freezes and it seizes,
our feet right to the floor
as soon as we begin to hear
its rumbling, cracking roar.

It moves so ever quickly,
through our worried minds
as it begins to settles in
our weaknesses it finds.

Fears jolting booming,
is felt deep in the heart
until a resounding dread
in our soul beings to start.

But, fear can be conquered,
when at first you hear its clap
if you take your worries . . .
and lay them in God’s lap!

Jesus Knows ~

Jesus knows what’s going on,
in your life right now . . .
He knows to get through
you are not sure just how.

But, you must trust Him,
to show you the way out
by giving to Him . . .
all your fears and doubt.

Jesus, knows that you need,
answers to your prayers
He knows you are burdened
by the weight of your cares.

But, you must give to Him,
all of your desperation
so He can set you free . . .
from your trepidation.

Jesus knows what’s happening,
He understands your needs
but, you must have the faith
for even the sparrows He feeds!

When Troubles Come ~

When troubles arrive,
as they come for you
go to God first . . .
and ask Him what to do.

For He is our helper,
on whom we can rely
for divine guidance
to use and apply.

When troubles create,
pressure from within
before anxiety and fear
can even set in.

Run into the High Tower,
God will meet you there
to relieve you from
all your worry and care.

When troubles approach
as they pursue you . . .
make sure you ask God
what He’d have you to do!

may come my way.

If there be a storm,

I will sing of the love
that I have for Thee!

Visions Of Green Pastures ~

Sometimes at night,
I can’t get to sleep
even after counting
all those little sheep.

As I toss and I turn,
there upon my bed
visions of green pastures
float around in my head.

A sudden rush of calm,
washes over me
for in the distance
my Shepherd I can see.

As I draw to Him closer,
I ask Him to cast out
the concerns causing me
in my bed to toss about.

My eyes slowly close,
as my worries I release
soon I am enveloped
in His love and peace.

Sometimes at night,
I fall fast asleep . . .
just by thinking about
being one of His sheep!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:14

I am the good shepherd,

Life Untroubled ~

Jesus never promised,
life would be easy . .
nor things would be
carefree and breezy.

Instead He said we’d have,
tests and tribulation
while living in this world
we’d undergo frustration.

Jesus never promised,
life on earth would be just
nor how its wicked ways
on us wouldn’t be thrust.

Instead He said as we made,
our earthly journey here
to claim in Him our victory
and to be of good cheer.

Jesus never promised,
life would be untroubled
He said He’d give us peace
so not to be befuddled!

is your sense of calm
but a fragment?

Well fix your thoughts,

and you will be filled
with His perfect love.

Is there a piece,

well, give to God all that is . . .

Why Not Me ~

Some people ask God why me,
I ask Him me, why not . . .
for when I start to doubt Him
it leaves me feeling fraught.

So instead of worrying,
about what God is doing . . .
I find trusting in Him
keeps my faith renewing.

Some people ask God why,
I ask Him what for . . .
for I know good things
He has for me in store.

So rather then fretting,
over things I can’t control
I ask Him to release peace
into my heart and soul.

Some people ask God why me,
I ask Him why not me . . .
for I know He is working
in places I cannot see!

2 Corinthians 4:16-17

For which cause we faint not;

weight of glory;

If green pastures bring peace,
why then are we still stressed?
If He leaves us not lacking,
why don’t we feel blessed?

If He restores our souls,
why then do we still doubt?

why is their still a drought?

If in righteousness He guides,
why then do we still wander?

we needn’t these things ponder!
