A Heart Quiet ~

A heart quiet,
is one trusting
one that doesn’t go
around fretting.

For, in God,
it is confident
because it knows
He is competent.

A heart quiet,
is one yielding
one that knows
it’s not worth worrying.

For in God,
it rests assured
it knows in Him
its peace is secured.

A heart quite,
is a heart that knows
God is with it
where ever it goes!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 30:15

“For thus saith the Lord God,
the Holy One of Israel;
In returning and rest
shall ye be saved;
in quietness and in
confidence shall be
your strength:
and ye would not.”

Call Out to God ~

Whenever your spirit,
is overwhelmed within
when you feel your troubles
you are drowning in.

Call out to God,
tell Him about your fear
then watch as to you
He draws close and near.

Whenever you feel,
you’re about to meltdown
when you feel hard pressed
by your cares all around.

Call out to God,
before you fall apart
He will come and release
His peace into your heart.

Whenever your mind,
is weighted down
by all those worries
you carry around.

Call out to God,
when you’re distressed
and with His presence
you will be blessed!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 120.1

“In my distress
I cried
unto the Lord,
and he
heard me.”

Little Blessings ~

Lord, encourage today,
those who are depressed
let them see just how much
they are truly blessed.

Let them see the little things,
every day that You do
so they may keep their eyes
focused daily in on You.

Lord, encourage today,
those who cannot see
the love and the grace
sent each day from Thee.

Let them see the hope,
in each little blessing
so they may be persuaded
into You to keep pressing.

Lord, encourage today,
those who are downcast
may they keep their minds . . .
and hearts in You steadfast!

” Blessed be the God and Father

That Weighted Down Feeling ~

Carrying a heavy load,
shoulders getting weak
is the weight of your worries
causing your knees to creak?

Problems mounting up,
in way over your head
is the weight of your cares
turning your feet into lead?

Anxiety has your heart,
missing a beat or two
is the weight of your stress
weighing on your mind too?

Well, I have a cure,
for that weighted down feeling
one that will bring to you . . .
peace, hope and healing.

On Jesus cast your cares,
and your anxieties too
for, with His strength
He will empower you!

Oh, What Jesus Can Do for You ~

I see your pain,
I hear your doubt
I know you think
there’s no way out.

But, if Jesus can,
heal the sick and lame
I know for you  . . .
He can do the same.

I hear your sorrow,
I see your grief
I know you think
they’ll be no relief.

But, if Jesus can,
calm the seas at will
I know for you . . .
your heart too will still.

I see your pain,
it’s written on your face . . .
but oh, what Jesus can do
with His love and grace!

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace,

Rejoicing Always ~

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
when things aren’t going right
it hard to give God thanks . . .
with so many battles to fight.

It’s hard to see God’s hand,
in the middle of the pain
it hard to be grateful
when all your joy is drained.

But we who have Jesus,
living inside of us
know how important it is
in Him to always trust.

For, to always be rejoicing,
takes prayer continually
and then our thanks to God
will come unceasingly.

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
with all that life brings . . .
but, we know it’s God will
to be thankful for all things!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.”

The Heart-Felt Cry ~

God hears your cries,
He hears your pleas
He is aware of . . .
your cares and needs.

He knows when you are,
feeling out and down
He knows you need
to sense He’s around.

So, if you’re hurting,
thinking God doesn’t care
believe me I know . . .
to your pain He’s aware.

For I have been,
just where you are
convincing myself
God from me was afar.

But, I have found this to be,
one of satan’s lies
for, God promises to hear
our heart-felt cries!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:6

“In my distress I called upon the Lord,
and cried unto my God:
he heard my voice out of his temple,
and my cry came before him,
even into his ears.

In The Right Direction ~

Sometimes God,
needs to get my attention
so He can reestablish
with Him a connection.

So He sends into my life,
trials and tribulations
to see if I will trust Him
with all their complications.

Sometimes God,
needs to redirect my life
by giving me things
that will cause me strife.

He wants to know,
how deep my faith goes
so that my weaknesses
to me He can expose.

Sometimes God,
has to get my attention
so He can keep me going
in the right direction!

~~~~

1 Peter 1:6-7

“Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though now for a season,
if need be, ye are in
heaviness through
manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious
than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise
and honour and glory at
the appearing of Jesus Christ:”

Hopefully, Joyful ~

Lord, once again
You proved to be faithful
and once again to You
I am truly grateful.

For, You have taught me,
how to cast my cares
onto You with my pleas
and my thankful prayers.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be trusting
and to my aide today
You faithfully came rushing.

You assured me,
for me You’d be here
to ease all my anxiety
and alleviate my fear.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be loyal
tis why today . . .
I’m hopefully, joyful!

Days Without Rain ~

God didn’t promise us,
days without any rain
times when we’d have
no suffering or pain.

But, He did promise us,
He’d always be there
to carry our burdens
and to ease our care.

God didn’t promise us,
skies constantly blue
nor that thunderous storms
in our lives wouldn’t brew.

But, He did promise us,
the grace to endure
His wings as a shelter
to keep us secure.

God didn’t promise us,
life would be pain-free
but, He did promise us . . .
through it all, He would be!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:45

“That ye may be the children
of your Father which is
in heaven: for he maketh
his sun to rise on the evil
and on the good, and sendeth
rain on the just
and on the unjust.”

There’s Nothing So Hard ~

 

There is no heart so hard,
that God cannot transform
there is no soul so dark
that mercy cannot reform.

There is nothing so hard,
that God will have us to do
there are no circumstances
that He can’t strengthen you.

There is no trial too hard,
that God can’t help us bear
there is no test so daunting
that grace won’t meet us there.

There is no road too hard,
that God may have for us
there is no path so tough
that we can’t learn to trust.

There’s nothing so hard,
that God cannot do . . .
there is no heart so powerless
when He lives inside of you!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“Behold, I am the Lord,
the God of all flesh:
is there any thing
too hard for me?”

Those Still Waters ~

When my spirit,
is weighted down
from the tension
that is all around.

My Good Shepherd,
brings to me
those still waters
where peace flows free.

When my spirit,
feels weary and spent
from all the cares
today I have met.

My Good Shepherd,
leads me to
those calming waters
where peace runs true.

When my spirit,
feels out of control
it’s in those still waters
Jesus calms my soul!

Lift Me Higher Lord ~

When my troubles,
are overwhelming
before my cares
become unrelenting.

I look to Jesus,
to lift me higher
so His peace
I might acquire.

When my worries,
are too heavy
before my tears
become steady.

I go to Jesus,
my High Rock
and in the storm
with Him I walk.

When my fears,
begin to transpire
I look to Jesus
to lift me higher!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 61:2

“From the end of the earth
will I cry unto thee,
When my heart
is overwhelmed:
lead me to the Rock
that is higher than I.”

Faith Isn’t A Feeling ~

Some days I just plain feel,
my faith it isn’t with it
sometimes I don’t feel
led by the Holy Spirit.

But, then God reminds me,
faith isn’t about how I feel
it’s about trusting Him . . .
so His truths He can reveal.

Some days I feel anxious,
caught up in my fear
some days it’s so hard
to feel God is ever near.

But, then God reminds me,
faith isn’t about how I feel
faith is believing Jesus . . .
my anxieties He will heal.

Some days my heart,
feels so burdened down
sometimes I don’t feel
or sense any hope around.

But, then God reminds me,
faith is not about a feeling
faith is about my future
and all He will be revealing!

~~~~~~~~

“Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.”

Finding Rest ~

The Lord Shepherds me,
to find in Him rest
whenever I feel
physically stressed.

He tells me to lay down,
my troubles at His feet
with promises to comfort
when emotionally beat.

The Lord takes me,
into places of peace
where all of my troubles
seem so far out of reach.

It’s there with Him I lie,
in the quietness provided
praying to still waters . . .
I will be led and guided.

The Lord Shepherds me,
to find spiritual stability
so whenever I’m troubled
I’ll have His tranquility!

Oh, My Anxious Child ~

One day I asked the Lord,
what is it I should do . . .
how can I possibly give
all my cares to You?

He said to me my child,
it’s easy if you will . . .
believe I am the One
who can your troubles still.

I thought this over,
for a minute or two
but, I still needed Him
to tell me just how to.

So I asked Him again,
Lord, how can I release
the burdens I carry
so I can have Your peace?

He said to me my child,
true rest you will find
if you let Me guard
your heart and your mind.

I knew the Lord was right,
so I began to pray
and when I was done
here’s what He had to say . . .

Be not anxious my child,
but in every thing by prayer
give me your thanksgiving
and I’ll take from you your care!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

” Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing
by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving
let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your
hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Trust That Enables ~

Feeling inadequate,
faith running low
losing the will
to let God, then let go?

Then you need to find,
the Holy Spirit’s fullness
so He can revive
your spiritual dullness.

Feeling ineffective,
trust is harder to find
too many burdens
weighing on your mind?

Then you need Jesus,
your strength to increase
so onto Him your cares
you’ll be able to release.

Feelings of inadequacy,
faith shaky and unstable
then ask God to provide you
with trust that enables!

~~~~~~~

Proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;
and lean not unto
thine own understanding.”

Hard Pressed ~

We’re all hard pressed,
from time to time
we all feel baffled
when mountains we climb.

We’re all stressed out,
from the daily wear
we all feel troubled
by our ongoing care.

We’re all needy,
about so many things
we’re all so weary
by the storms life brings.

We’re all down cast,
for different reasons
we’re all scrambling
through life’s seasons.

But, we not need be,
in a state of despair
for Jesus on the cross
our burdens did bear!

~~~~~~~

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.”

I Do Not Doubt ~

My God has designs,
He will figure this out
He has a plan for me
in this, I do not doubt.

Though I’m concerned,
He knows just what to do
and so my Father . . .
in faith, I leave this with You.

My God keeps His promises,
He is forever merciful
everything He does
is perfectly, purposeful.

Though I may be worried,
I am not afraid
for I know with God
I’m not to be dismayed.

My God is good,
He’s always fair and just
that is why in Him . . .
I choose to place my trust!

~~~~~

Psalm 138:8

“The Lord will perfect
that which concerneth me:
thy mercy, O Lord,
endureth for ever:
forsake not the works
of thine own hands.”

My Soul Thirsts ~

Lord, in the aridness,
of my heart and soul
I am thirsty for You
to reign and take control.

I long to absorb and drink,
from Your holy Word
to feel the Living Waters
in my mind being stirred.

Lord, in the dryness,
of my daily reality
I thirst for You to bring
a hopeful vitality.

I long to be nourished,
with the Truth and Life
to feel Your stilling peace
eat away my earthly strife.

Lord, my soul thirsts,
for You solely . . .
tis why I seek You
with my heart wholly!

~~~~~~

Psalm 63:1

“O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;”

God Is Full of Mercy ~

God is full of mercy,
I know this to be true
and He wants me
to give some to you.

So, I pray He’ll comfort,
you in your suffering
and my pleas for you
to Him I’ll be offering.

God is full of favor,
I know this to be true
and He has given me
compassion just for you.

So, I’ll be asking Him,
to bring your heart peace
and that onto Jesus . . .
your cares you’ll release.

God is full of grace,
I know this to be true
and He wants me to show
how much He loves you.

So, I will be making,
for you intercessions
and pray His mercy
relieves your afflictions!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Like An Eagle ~

Renewed like an eagle,
my strength restored
the closer I sweep in
to Jesus, my Lord.

He gives me courage,
to go the distance
gives me His strength
when I meet resistance.

Just like an eagle,
the clouds I climb above
rising over my troubles
on the strength of His love.

I have the fortitude,
to  look into the eye
of each raging storm
that passes me by.

He renews my faith,
my trust He restores
until the day like an eagle
into heaven I soar!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“But they that wait
upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with
wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

Thrown To and Fro ~

Lord, what is this feeling,
churning inside of me
it feels as if inside . . .
I’m in a swirling sea.

I know You’re my Anchor,
but, I’m losing my grip
oh, please dear Lord . . .
do not ever let me slip.

Lord, why is my trust,
ebbing in and out . . .
why are these deep waters
causing me to doubt?

I know You’re my strength,
I know You’re my hope
but I feel as if . . .
onto You I blindly group.

Lord, why am I getting,
thrown to and fro . . .
it must be so Your stillness
I may come to know!

“He maketh the storm a calm,

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
