  8. is this sort of verse what might be used or posted???

    Empty space is dark, no illumination,
    But light reflects God, truth of His creation,
    As Jesus shines light on mind and emotion,
    May this life be His visible reflection,
    Truth be reflected with clarification,

    In daily choices by thought word and action,
    Truth may be shared with Jesus affirmation,
    Freedom of choice, God given motivation,
    Seek Holy Spirit for guidance provision.
    Establish character by Spirit’s direction.

    Aware Divine love my present protection,
    Healing my mind, giving Jesus possession.
    Test, trial, pain, chosen consequent action,
    Responsible choices with firm decision
    Disciplines thoughts, character formation.

    This harvest of life will come to fruition,
    Character matured in hope true reflection
    By Spirit’s power, love joy faith expression
    Rest trusting God for peaceful transformation.
    God’s character guiding daily decision,

  9. Hi Fylvia,

    • Hi Sharon,

    My only assured hope and security,
    True peace that’s permanent in reality,
    Jesus provides most secure sanctuary,
    Holds my life safely, knows me intimately.

    Jesus in His safe refuge Most Holy,
    Hears my prayer and judges personally,
    Understands all my needs and fears perfectly
    Divine merit atones for me graciously.

    Jesus opens the door to the heavenly
    Where we envision true worship in glory,
    Where smoke of incense, His merit worthy,
    Rises before the throne with prayer securely.

    True faith, freedom, Jesus healing ministry,
    In blessed Sabbath rest sanctified weekly,
    Sign that God sanctifies me personally,
    Celebrates Creator’s seal of sovereignty.

    As each Sabbath comes to us consistently,
    Reminding us how Jesus cares intensely,
    Providing life joy, secure hope peacefully,
    Aware of His presence, love and liberty.

    Mary Gay
