Inspirational Scripture Poetry

Proverbs 2-1-7

If you will receive God's words
And treasure all His commands,
Being attentive to godly wisdom,
He'll be your shield from harm
If you raise your voice for understanding
And cry out for godly insight,
Longing for godly direction,
Each and every day of your life,
And if you seek for God's wisdom
As for treasure that is hidden
Then you will know the fear of the Lord
And have His knowledge within.

Malachi 3:10

Bring the whole of your offering
Into the storehouse of the Lord
That there may be plenty,
A bountiful blessing for all
In this may you prove me
And see that I'll not open
All of heavens gates for you,
The promise I have spoken
And you shall not be able
To receive all of my blessings
Poured out from my abundance
So your portion keeps increasing
I only want to bless you
In everything you do,
But first you need to plant the seed
To see my harvest for you.

Scripture Inspirational Poetry

Romans 12:2

May you never be conformed
To the world and all its ways,
To be fashioned by its customs
And to do what others say

May you be so transformed
By the renewing of your mind
As you meditate on God's word,
In His presence you will find

That you will be renewed
And changed so you may prove
What is the perfect will of God
And that which is good for you

For God so longs for us
To become as Jesus Christ,
To always walk in conformity
To His purpose and will for our lives.

Valentine's Day is a day of love,
For showing that we care,
And if we read the Bible,
God describes love there:

If we speak like celestial angels
From heaven up above,
All our words mean nothing
If we don't have Christian love.

Love is patient, love is kind;
It doesn't brag or boast;
Love conquers pride and envy;
It is never self-engrossed.

Love is not rude or angry;
Forgiveness counters wrong;
Love stays away from evil;
It sings a truthful song.

Love is full of trust and hope;
It always perseveres;
Love never fails; It's faithful;
To the Bible it adheres.

And if you give this kind of love
To your special Valentine,
You'll be loving right in harmony
With God's own sweet design.

Gardening God's Way

Plant three rows of peas:
Peace of mind
Peace of heart
Peace of soul

Plant four rows of squash:
Squash gossip
Squash indifference
Squash grumbling
Squash selfishness

Plant four rows of lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful
Lettuce be kind
Lettuce be obedient
Lettuce really love one another

No garden without turnips:
Turnip for meetings
Turnip for service
Turnip to help one another

Water freely with patience and
Cultivate with love.
There is much fruit in your garden
Because you reap what you sow.

To conclude our garden
We must have thyme:
Thyme for God
Thyme for study
Thyme for prayer

More Like Jesus

Let us be more like Jesus
In everything we do;
Letís live a life of service,
A life thatís fresh and new.

Letís relinquish worldly things,
And not be slaves to fashion;
Letís fill our hearts with love,
Forgiveness and compassion.

Yes, letís be more like Jesus,
Being always in Godís will,
For if Jesusí light shines through us,
Our earthly purpose weíll fulfill.

This Is The Time; This Is The Hour

The Lord our God will say to us
To not limit what He can do,
For He is a God of the unlimited,
There's nothing He can't do through you

For God is doing a new thing
In our lives, today, this hour
To raise us up to be His army,
Clothing us with His power

Remember not the former things,
The things that are in the past
Behold, He is doing a new thing
And will capture human hearts

It's time now to go out and gather
In the harvest of the Lord,
For there are many whose souls are ready
More than we've known before

So take His light into those places
Of darkness and misery,
That they may know the God of love
To give hope and a destiny

Then they may shine right where they are
So others may come to the light
And they in turn may come to know
The saving grace of Christ

Then Jesus' light may radiate there
Like a beacon in the night,
No longer groping in the darkness,
But shining forth God's light

May the spirit of God arise in you
And empower you much more
So His glory may be seen with you
As you proclaim the risen Lord

Inspirational Scripture Poetry

Galatians 5:1

We have truly been set free,
For Christ has redeemed us;
We can walk in His holy power
And know His saving love

May we stand fast in this freedom,
Not to be again ensnared
By the heavy yoke we once had borne
When spiritually, we were dead

But thanks be to God,
Who has given us the liberty,
Who has resurrected us
To walk in His victory.

As A Seed Becomes A Vision

God has planted a precious seed
Deep within our hearts,
The seed of a future vision
That He wants to impart

As we are quietly being prepared
To fulfil that which He's given,
We must gently nurture the seed
Until the full grown vision

God then begins to open doors,
Little by little, as we are led,
So each opportunity we have in Him
Is leading to what lies ahead

Then just at the time God chooses,
We walk into what He has called,
So we can be a blessing to others,
Sharing the love of the Lord.

Wait With Faith

Lord, you have faithfully shown me
So many times before
And this time is no exception, Lord,
And simply can't be ignored

That you know all that concerns my life,
Everything your eyes do see
You always come through at just the right time
To meet my every need

For nothing escapes your watchful eye,
No problem that we may cross
But so often, Lord, it seems as though
There's a delay in your response

I know it's a testing of our faith
To wait so patiently
You stretch us so our faith may grow,
Though we want it instantly

But it's for our good that you respond
In your time, not in ours,
For if you didn't - we'd stay as infants,
Getting everything right now

For us to grow more Christ-like,
We need to learn to wait,
For often that's the answer to prayer
And builds us up in faith

So I thank you for the answer to come
As I hand it over in prayer
Thank you that you're still working on me
And my breakthrough's drawing near.

Motivated From The Heart

We can do all the right things
And be eloquent in what we say,
But if we don't have love in our hearts,
What we do and say is in vain

We can give everything to those in need,
Even sacrifice all our time,
But if we don't have God's love inside,
It's as if our faith is blind

The only motivation we should have
Is God's compassionate heart,
To really have God's mercy and grace
For the many lost in the dark

Touch us again with your love
And a desire for the lost
To show them there is a better way,
To lead them to Jesus cross

So they, too, may be deeply touched
With your saving grace, O Lord,
And know the missing link is you,
The key that unlocks the door

For you have reconciled us, Lord,
Back to our Father above,
To have meaningful relationship
And receive His eternal love

So, may our walk be blameless, Lord,
Reflecting who you are
Let nothing we do be in vain,
But be motivated from the heart.

Matthew 6:31-34

Do not worry, nor be anxious
For what you'll eat or wear,
For God knows just what we need
So we need not live in fear

We needn't strive, nor seek these things,
For God provides what we need
And we shall live in His provision,
From His Abundance, we shall feed

So do not worry about tomorrow,
Just take one day at a time,
For tomorrow has worries of its own,
We need to leave it behind

We need to seek God's kingdom first
Then all these things will be given,
Also, to seek His righteousness
And keep our eyes on Heaven.

Desperate Times

Lord, it's getting to be desperate times
Why do you seem to delay
In responding to my pressing needs
That I remind you of each day?

In my mind I know that you
Will come through in the end,
But in my heart emotions rise
And I worry and fret again

Help me, Lord, at those times
To give it again to you,
Help me know deep in my heart
That you will pull me through

And that you fully understand
Exactly where Iím at,
Though circumstances do not change,
In you, I shall not lack

Everything when given to you
Will work out for my good,
For when I cast my care on you,
It's then, that it's understood

That it's just a matter of your timing
In responding to my need,
For often it's because you're doing
A deeper work in me

So all that's left for me to do,
The one thing that is sure,
Is to put my trust in you each day,
For nothing matters more.

You are so welcome, appreciate the feed-back and encouragement...Blessings

A God Of Hope

I just want to say thank you
For this life you've given me,
For all the wondrous blessings,
For setting my spirit free

You are such an awesome God
Who only gives the best,
Giving us a life of hope
When we face all kinds of tests

For often we face in life,
Struggles of every kind,
Little things can get us down
And peace is far from our minds

But you give hope to carry on
No matter what we face,
When we feel like giving up,
Unable to finish the race

You step in just in time
With angels heaven sent,
To encourage us to carry on
And to give us extra strength

So I praise you, Lord, for whom you are
And for all that I can be,
For I'd never have a better life
Apart from your life in me.

You Have A Part To Play

Each one of God's children
Has a special part to play,
Whether it be great or small,
We are needed every day

If your part seems very small,
Don't feel you're insignificant
Don't feel that you can't offer much
And you wouldn't make a difference

Though you're tempted to give up
And let another take your place,
Remember, God gave you your gifts
And you cannot be replaced

And these gifts that God has given,
He longs for you to share
You're just as important as anyone,
So don't be in despair

The only one who matters most
Is watching for your part,
With much anticipation
And excitement in His heart

So do not disappoint Him
By not taking your cue,
Though you think it unimportant,
This part is made for you

Don't let God walk away
With a disappointed heart
Because you felt so unworthy
Of your very special part

The parts that we've been given
Isn't based on size at all,
But rather on the abilities
And the gifting of the Lord

For each part is important
To make the whole thing work,
So do your part with enthusiasm
And know that you have worth.

We Matter To God

As we come before you, Lord,
And worship at your feet,
You pour out your blessings upon us
And meet us in our need

Whatever we are facing,
We can leave it with you, Lord,
And walk away with confidence
Knowing you will bear it all

For you are God almighty,
Our God in whom we trust
To unload us of our burdens
And shower us with love

Lord, you are so wonderful
To care about our lives,
Each small, insignificant detail,
Each tear that we cry

For everything about us, Lord,
Is so important to you,
You want to be involved in our lives
In everything we do

So I can't help but praise you
For the loving God you are
You care so much for every soul
And you're never very far

That we cannot touch your heart
Every time we come to pray
And we can come into your presence,
Each and every day.

The Road Of Faith

Shine your light, O Lord,
So that I may see,
Just where I am heading
And what's in front of me

Your word is the light,
The lamp unto my feet
It may not light far ahead,
Nor show me where it's steep

But it gives enough light
For each step I take,
Just enough to see ahead,
Along this road of faith

For this is what it surely is
As we walk with Jesus Christ,
The road that we are travelling on
Is by faith, not by sight

So shine your light, O Lord,
So we may see our way,
Though you only show in part,
It's enough for each new day.

Romans 12:2

May you never be conformed
To the world and all its ways,
To be fashioned by its customs
And to do what others say

May you be so transformed
By the renewing of your mind
As you meditate on God's word,
In His presence you will find

That you will be renewed
And changed so you may prove
What is the perfect will of God
And that which is good for you

For God so longs for us
To become as Jesus Christ,
To always walk in conformity
To His purpose and will for our lives.

God's Peace

God's tender love and peace
Is what we all long for
In a world so hopelessly chaotic,
So unstable and unsure

It brings stability to our minds
And calmness to our souls,
For that is what we desperately need
As this world can be so cold

We need to have God's peace
When turmoil's in our lives,
For God's peace doesn't depend
On the daily pressures of life

When we have those stressful days,
God's peace can often soothe
And bring us such a quiet hope
That chases away the blues

So when you feel the pressure on,
Remember, Jesus Christ,
Receive from Him the peace He gives
As His daily dose for life!

Beyond Our Limitations

Lord, we need to move beyond
This place that we are in,
To touch your very heart, O God,
To have your love within

We need to move beyond the limits
Weíve placed upon our lives,
To move into more of you,
Revealed through Jesus Christ

Help us to keep pressing on
As, by faith, we take more steps,
To really conquer our inner selves,
To know you with more depth

Help us, Lord, to overcome,
To be focused more on you
No matter how hard it gets for us,
We need to press on through

Though Satan rises with hellís fury
With vengeance to devour,
We pray, O God, youíll arise in us
And fight with holy power

For greater are you within us
Than the enemy of our souls,
For you have power and might, O God
And your Spirit is in control

We know the victory shall be ours,
Though for now the heat is on
Help us, Lord, to not give up,
For by this, you make us strong

You will sustain us in your love
Through what weíre going through
And deliver us the other side
Victorious in you!

Just As

by Nina Blaise-Marie

Just as the stars in the night sky..,
just as the calm after the storm.
Somewhere in this chaotic mess called life,
we finally feel the calm and see the stars,
the light shines through..,
and what is left?
Just the peace and the happiness..,
in the heart and in the soul,
like the stars and like the calm..
Just as it should be...

Inspirational Poetry

Matthew 6:31-34

Do not worry, nor be anxious
For what you'll eat or wear,
For God knows just what we need
So we need not live in fear

We needn't strive, nor seek these things,
For God provides what we need
And we shall live in His provision,
From His Abundance, we shall feed

So do not worry about tomorrow,
Just take one day at a time,
For tomorrow has worries of its own,
We need to leave it behind

We need to seek God's kingdom first
Then all these things will be given,
Also, to seek His righteousness
And keep our eyes on Heaven.

Connected To The Vine

Read: John 15: 1-8

We have been grafted into the vine (Christ) by our faith in Him. We need to continue to be 'in Christ' to be productive for Him.

If a branch is cut off from the tree and tossed to one side, it can no longer produce. It doesn't have the life of the tree in it. It is no longer connected to the source of life. This is how it is in the spiritual realm. Being cut off from union with Christ - we no longer are connected to our source of power. The power to live the Christian life, and to overcome the enemy; to know the joy of the Lord despite our circumstances, and to have intimate fellowship with God and hope for eternity. We need to stay vitally united to the vine (Christ) to tap into the resources that are ours through Christ.

God the Father prunes the branches bearing fruit - so we will bear more. The times of pruning are painful to go through, but necessary, in order to be more productive.

If you feel as though you're not connected to the vine anymore, and feel indifferent to the things of God, you can come back and be re-connected to the vine. God loves you and wants to have a relationship with you. He will receive you with open arms - all you need to do is take the first step. You may like to pray this prayer:

Father God, I'm sorry for becoming indifferent to you and for not remaining connected to Christ. I come to you today and surrender my life to you. Forgive me and heal my brokenness. Help me to remain connected to the source, for all I need to have life within me and to be productive for you. Fill me afresh with your Holy Spirit. In Jesus name. Amen.

Now don't be afraid of the pruning. Allow God to prune your branches so you will be even more productive for Him.

Inspirational Thoughts

One Day With You

Psalm 84:10

"For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper and stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness."

One day with the Lord is better than a thousand spent in ease - gratifying the flesh. So often we look at people that have a lot and are living in ease, they may have everything they want at their fingertips - and be in lack of nothing. Sometimes we may desire to be that way, especially those times when finances are tight. But as we read here, one day in God's presence far outweighs a lifetime of luxurious living and living to the flesh in sin. After all, where we spend eternity is what counts. You can't take your lifestyle of ease with you when you die. What really counts is our 'eternal soul'.

Being in God's presence, and having a personal relationship with our loving Father, means more to us than being in the world without knowing Him. I would rather have God, than the world's riches and ease. Wouldn't you?

Scripture Poetry Inspirations

1 Peter 5:8-9

Be on your guard every day
Don't let your armour down
The enemy, the devil, is on the prowl
Like a fierce lion, he roams around
Always stand firm in the faith
Against Satan's fiery darts,
Don't let him have a foothold in
Or leave open the door of your heart
For we need to continually stand
Upon God's holy word
And not to give up on our faith
But remembering what we've heard
And all the while we remember
The same suffering comes to all
On our fellow sisters and brothers
For their faith in the Lord.

Today's Inspiration

Scripture Poem: Based on Psalm 71:1-5

Psalm 71:1-5

In you, O Lord, do I put my trust
And in you, I take refuge
Deliver me in your righteousness,
For you're the God that rescues
Be to me the place of shelter
Where I can safely abide,
For you're my rock and my fortress
Where I can run and hide
Rescue me from the hand of the wicked,
From the grasp of the evil one,
For you have always been my hope
I've trusted since I was young.

Today's Inspiration: The Battle Is The Lord's

And he said, "Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the LORD to you: 'Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God's ... You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!' Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you." - 2 Chronicles 20: 15 & 17 (NKJV)

This scripture here is a promise we can hold on to when going through difficult circumstances that seem out of our control and overwhelming. There are some battles that we simply can't fight - and shouldn't fight in our own strength. Sometimes God tells us to take our positions, stand still and see His deliverance. Sometimes we need to take our hands off, stand back and let God fight for us.

We needn't fear what comes against us, but to stand firm in our faith. God knows the whole situation. Though we feel overwhelmed when we look at our circumstances, the Lord sees the whole picture and sees the way out for us. We need to let God have control and fight the battle we're facing. He has promised that He is with us and that He will bring us through.

If you are facing a battle today that seems overwhelming, give it over to God and let Him fight for you. He will work it all out, and make a way where it seems there is no way.

This is a brand new Blog that will be for sharing Inspirational Stories, Poetry and Personal Testimonies that will Inspire those who read it...Hope you enjoy the following...

Today's Inspiration: Purpose In Life

"...Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand...."
- Proverbs 19: 21 (AMP)

We are all born for a purpose. We are not here by accident, but to fulfil a God-given destiny. We may have many plans for our lives, but as this verse says, "it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand." Sometimes God can change the direction we are going in. Sometimes it can be a radical change, or sometimes just a slight adjustment.

We need to ask God to show us His purpose for our lives - what He wants us to do. He will show us and help us to take steps towards fulfilling it.

God has a purpose and a destiny
That will last throughout eternity.
