Negative Thoughts ~

Negative thoughts,
coming from nowhere
bombarding our hearts
with distrust and despair.

From out of the blue,
they attack our mind
robbing us of our hope
leaving anxiety behind.

Negatives thoughts,
blown in like a whirlwind
til under their control
we find ourselves pinned.

From places unknown,
they come to the surface
assaulting our knowledge
of God and His purpose.

Negative thoughts,
we must take captive
to them we cannot be
inactive or passive!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 10:5

“Casting down imaginations,
and every high thing that
exalteth itself against
the knowledge of God,
and bringing into captivity
every thought to the
obedience of Christ;

Just Chillin’ With My Lord ~

Today I am chillin’,
not going to get bothered
won’t let one little thing take
my peace from my Father.

I’m just going to kick back,
and rest here all the day
I’m not going to let anything
take our oneness away.

Today I’m taking it easy,
not going to get uptight
instead I will just soak in
all of Jesus’ calming light.

I’m just going to relax,
in the warmth of His love
and let His grace beam
down on me from above.

Today, I am chillin’
just me and my Lord
and if I fall asleep . . .
it’s not because I’m bored!

~~~~~~~

“I will both lay me down in peace,
and sleep: for thou, Lord,
only makest me dwell in safety.”

I Shall Not Be Moved ~

Though, my troubles are many,
and surround me night and day
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will make a way.

Though, my burdens are great,
and follow me wherever I go
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord’s peace l shall know.

Though, my enemies oppress me,
and try to hold me down
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will keep me sound.

Though, my days are a vapor,
and the end may soon be near
I shall not be moved . . .
for in the Lord I’ve no fear.

Though, my nights are long,
and often filled with dread
I shall not be moved . . .
for on Jesus I rest my head!

“He only is my rock
and my salvation:

He is my defence;

Whatever Comes ~

Lord, this new year,
I am trusting You
what comes my way
to bring me through.

If there be sunshine,
I’ll delight in the rays
knowing they’ll lead me
to Your truth and ways.

If there be clouds,
hanging over my head
I’ll not let them fill me
with fear of dread.

If the skies open up,
out of the blue
my anchor will be set
right into You.

Lord this new year,
in You I’m trusting
be there clear skies
or storms gusting!

Just Keep Looking Up ~

Things looking a bit dark,
can’t see His light
getting tired of battling
the same old fight?

Spinning in circles,
going round and round
can’t get ahead
feeling more than down?

Can’t catch a break,
no matter what you do
feel as if the whole world
is fighting against you?

Well, you’re not alone,
others feel just like you
but as CHRISTians we know
what we must do . . .

So, look up to the heavens,
put your life in God’s hands
Jesus is your one Friend
who truly understands.

He’s looking out for you,
believe it or not . . .
and if that’s not the truth
then our faith is for naught.

So, don’t stop believing,
don’t you ever give up
for this too shall pass
so, just keep looking up!

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,

A Quiet Place ~

Thank You Lord,
for giving me
a place to go
when I’m weary.

A quiet spot,
for my mind
and Your peace
to come in line.

Thank You Lord,
for meeting me
when to You
I run and flee.

A hidden retreat,
for my heart
so more grace
You can impart.

Thank You Lord,
for being there
when I bring You
my daily care!

May You Be At Peace ~

May you be at peace,
all times, in every way
may you take heart knowing
God sends new mercies each day.

May you be anxious for naught,
nor about one single thing
may you feel the calming
only a Savior can bring.

with dreams of green pastures

Inside Out ~

 

Lord, You have searched my heart,
You know it inside out
You know where faith runs deep
and the potholes full of doubt.

You have looked into my mind,
You know all of its ups and downs
You know the ruts of fear
and the pockets of peace around.

You have looked into my thoughts,
You know the turbulence
You know the ebbs of calm
and the waves of nervousness.

You have looked into my soul,
You know its fragile stubbornness
You know when it’s softly pliable
and when it’s stiff with faithlessness.

Lord, You have searched my heart,
my mind, thoughts and soul
and I know there’s more . . .
for You to shape and mold!

and know my heart:

My God Promises ~

My God is bigger,
than my fear
for my God promises
to always be near.

My God is greater,
than my dread
for my God promises
me daily bread.

My God is mightier,
than my plight
for my God promises
to lead with His light.

My God is bolder,
than my doubt
for my God promises
I’ll not go without.

My God is stronger,
than my concern
for my God promises
He will return!

Peace Imparted ~

 

Sometimes my mind,
I can’t seem to still
and often my troubles
it begins to fill.

They crawl in and out,
of the deep, dark spaces
but, I won’t allow them
rob me of God’s graces.

Sometimes my heart,
I can’t seem to quiet
and often my worries
alters its calm climate.

They work their way in,
denying me of my hope
but, I won’t let them steal
the trust I need to cope.

Sometimes into my mind,
my cares drop into my heart
but, Jesus comes to the rescue
and peace again He imparts!

Sticky Note to God ~11.28.18 ~


Sometimes God ~

Sometimes God,
sends us a detour
to see if our faith
in Him is mature.

Sometimes God,
puts up a roadblock
to see what way
we’ll choose to walk.

Sometimes God,
sends us delays
so our faith in Him
He can appraise.

Sometimes God,
puts up a barrier
to see if we’ll trust
or remain a worrier.

Sometimes God,
sends nothing at all
to see if on Him   . . .
we will even call!

“We are troubled on every side.

needing their nerves
for You to compose.

pull those deeper into You
till they no longer fear!

Call Upon Jesus ~

you will surely find.

When your world,
comes crumbling down

Rock Bottom ~

Hitting rock bottom
having a hard time
thinking not another
mountain to climb?

Well, don’t you ever forget,

and a hard place
thinking you should
just quit the race?

and through that valley
He will help you walk.

Having a hard time,
in your faithful walk?
Well don’t you forget
Jesus is your Rock!

Bible Prophecy, Christian News. Salvation is not in our hands. Only Jesus Christ can save. John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
