Take Note *James 1:19-25

19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the Word planted in you, which can save you.
~~~
22 Do not merely listen to the Bible, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the Word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

Lord, show us where we stand when it comes to relationships. Reveal to each one of us what type of listener we actually are. Help us to become a better listener and doer of Your Word. In Jesus Name. Amen

No More

There will be no more conception
of ungodly perception
No matter what does appear
understanding will be clear
No more bologna
away with the phony
When you call upon
I say, “Be gone!”
It will be the wrong number
I am not and will not slumber
I will not be connected
to the one infected
Nor will I freeze
I will move about with ease
I am in His sorority
He’s given me authority
I will stand firm
I will not squirm
I will use what was given me
to glorify God Almighty

Joy

I am through
with this negative view.
I’ve had it,
here it may not sit.
Joy is here
and that is where
I will stay
for the rest of today
and the days to come
not just a few or some.
For all of my days
joy will fill my ways.
The evil one is around
trying to get me down
but it won’t work
for I will smirk.
I am with my Lord
He’s given me His Sword.
In Him, I am secure
this truth is for sure.
Thank you God
to You I applaud.

Stuck

I love my Lord
I cannot afford
to get stuck
in the muck
to do what I want
for it will surely taunt
my spirit
I need to hear it
clear as a bell
then I can tell
what is right
in His sight
this is my reply
I will live by
when in doubt
throw it out!
I will do this with ease
so I can please
the One who sits on High
to Him I will draw nigh.

Good & Perfect Gift *James 1:16-17

16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Lord, open our eyes to see the wonderful things in Your Word – the Bible. Thank you that Your Word is true and that You can be trusted to do as You say. In Jesus Name. Amen.
