• Right up front I will let you know, this is a bit longer than usual. A part of the story, that was laid on my heart this week; to write and share. May it be a blessing, may it move you… closer to His heart!
For as far back as my heart can remember, I can see how God’s love; has been my refuge. Before my heart knew how to breathe, He was already my breath. Whenever my soul wanted to hide from the world, Hide and Seek; what the heart within a silent river, played day after day. My heart knew how to be quiet, but my soul restless; not yet knowing the stillness. But God, His love always knew; exactly where to find my heart. When my soul started the seeking; His love, what my heart found… every time. The heart of a child, didn’t yet know how to truly feel; but my soul, within an embrace. Why my heart can say, without any hesitation; I Can’t… do anything on my own. Every day is a fight, but never a struggle… for my heart. Even when my heart didn’t yet understand, my soul knew a long time ago; who I am, and who is the breadth. My heart can breathe, but I Can’t… take a breath; if not through His love!
He says I can do all things, but I know; only if His love… is what moves me. He says I’m a conqueror, but I couldn’t win a single battle; in my own strength. I can tell ten thousand stories, in my own words, but I still wouldn’t be able to move a single heart. If His love wasn’t the breath, breathing through each verse. I could repeat a thousand times; I think I can, I think I can. We can say all the right words, but it takes faith to believe… you can. When I stumble, I don’t have to worry about the fall. He died, so His love can show a heart… how to rise again. So many think, that I am so strong; but I tell you the truth. I would be truly weak, if His love wasn’t the power… that moves within. What can ever compare, to the greatest love; a heart will ever know?
Let me share with you, why iWirte. Why my heart is just the pen, His love forever the ink. About ten years ago, I had a moment, an encounter; a shift within my heart and soul. I was a Christian for twenty four years, doing everything asked of my heart. Head down, heart wide open; but the journey. One faithful step forward, only to see all the footprints; get washed away. A heart devastated, just like that little boy; a heart feeling so alone. But God, He took my heart; back through the pages of my life. To show, to reveal to my heart; the times when His love… never left me. That it was His love pulling me through, from what should have broken my spirit. You see, my praying grandmother made sure from I could walk; that God’s love, would be a part of my life. Even though He had a hold of my soul, I didn’t give Him my heart; until the age of fifteen. After giving my heart, the focused was just one thing; His love. My heart was so in love, but why not. Unbeknownst to the heart of a child, God was loving on my soul… for fifteen years!
I don’t believe in fairy tales, I trust in God. There is truly nothing in the world, I want, there’s nothing my heart will ever need; than this love. The search for love was over, the very moment I could clearly see. There’s a captivating love story, written on my heart. Why my soul no longer needs to hide, because my heart will forever seek. I Can’t, I Couldn’t, I Won’t, I Don’t… want to breathe, or even take a breath. If this love, is not what moves my heart. A textbook introvert, gave his heart. To receive sight, through an awoken soul. This love will always have my heart, for when I needed it the most; His love hovered. Creating within my soul, a deeper meaning to love. I Can’t do nothing; But, God Can… do it all. Joy, Hope, Peace, Strength; a Refuge. I Can’t even take credit, for who I am. His Story, His Voice; my heart; but His Love… within. Father, everything my soul has ever searched for, found complete… in You!
Forever, what it seems like. Your love, my heart; this dance. As a child, I couldn’t yet recognize; it was an unfamiliar lyric. But even though my heart wasn’t familiar with the rhythm; Your love, was the song. The Lover of my soul, what You are. My first love, the ever last; the best love my heart has ever known. The love that stills, is the love that moves; soulfully. A slow waltz, a sweet lullaby; how Your love, won the heart of a babe. A heart trying to know love, a heart needing to understand true love. It was in the quietness, alone within the stillness of my soul; where my heart was held close!
But then, there was the coming of age; a boy to a teen. A heart held within an embrace, the slow waltz; turned into a slow dance. A heart beginning to know love, a love slowly breaking down the walls. There came a day, the day I invited You in; to dance forever. Young love, a teenage heart; but it was total surrender. Oh, Lord; You, me. A heart wide open, forever exposed. It seems like just yesterday, the summer of 2019; marks thirty four years. Your love, my heart; embraced in a forever dance. A heart learning how to trust, a soul now knowing what it truly is to be loved. Unconditionally, within a forever embrace. A heart forever moved, by the rhythm of Your love; dance with me!
But then, the lover of my soul; introduced my heart to another. A love so real, a dance partner to share the dance. How unselfish, how utterly thoughtful; to let my heart dance with another. It wasn’t a tap out, but a tap in… to a master plan. How two hearts become whole, through a slow dance; through a lifetime commitment. Oh turn the music up, this is my jam; You Are My Lady, dance with me. Oh girl, I see it in your eyes; your love dances, forever with my heart. Sweet lady, the lover of my soul; wants our love to dance, into forevermore. That love will always be first, the one true love; my heart has ever known. So Milady, are you truly willing; to be a part of this dance, share this heart of mine?
Lady, put your heart forever into my hands; and dance with me. I promise, this love will never be; just a song and dance, this love is forever. Let my love, play throughout your hearts and soul; ALWAYS, our forever song. God’s love is the candlelight, our hearts forever the flame. If we fan the flame, His love will light up our heart; to forever bask in the Afterglow. Lord, whenever I get lost for words, Your love doesn’t even have to say a word. Take me by the heart, dance with me forever. Let the world disappear, all I need to see; just Your heart. Words can’t even begin to express the feelings, this slow dance; this forever embrace!
Real Love, falling in love every time our hearts meet; the hold, that just won’t let go. A presence that leaves a heart breathless, forever swept away. Lord, lady; what we have here, it’s all I truly need, to know I’m loved. Small still whispers, how this love began. I will forever hold tight, Your love; I keep it close to my heart. During the business of my mind, my heart will always take moments to reflect. Lord, a quiet stroll through Your heart; how I get to in Your love. Every day, the dawn of every morning; it’s another embrace. A kiss upon my heart, then out into our Forever; The Dance, within my heart!
So many fail to ponder the simple question, where will each step in life… take your heart. Life is a journey, but each step shouldn’t be taken lightly. So many are content, to just waltz into it. Hoping you will some day, find your place, your true calling. Some thinking they have a lifetime, to figure it all out. Seize today, why lose tomorrow; trying to get back yesterday? Make today, the moment worth living. Why we should always start, with the end in mind. How a heart knows, it’s the dance of a lifetime. Life, is not about how you start; but in what place you will finish? Not about if you danced the dance, but in whom you chose to partner? Don’t dance around the question. Do you truly want power that overcomes, or be overcome… trying to figure out the next steps?
Heel, toe; heel, toe. How can a heart expect to finish strong, when you haven’t truly decided. Dig in your heels, or just toe the line? For some, it’s one foot in, one foot out. Left foot in, left foot out. Right foot in, right foot out. You do the hokey pokey, turn yourself around; but, that’s not what it’s all about. That just gets the head spinning, leaving the heart in a daze. A soul unsettled, figuring out if you should hold your breath, or just let loose? Not sure, you slide to the left, then a slide to the right. A heart still undecided; the electric slide, or the backslide? That turns into a Tango, and before you know it. You throw your hand in the air, and say; Lets get ready to… Rumba. Fight night, this, for that; a side… walk away. An old fashion, take it to the streets dance off!
Forgetting, you’re not as young as you used to be. Forever twenty one, is the name of a stor… y once told. But you still try to bust a move, only to have your Hip… Hop, right out of place; Break Dancing. The classical twist, and shout; combined with a Lyrical flair. With a contemporary, Tap dance… out of commission. Mind, body, and soul; not in sync. The heart, trying to pick up the broken pieces. For stability, you put weight on the front… of the brain. While trying to find a little support, for what’s in the back… of your mind. Is the next life lesson, going to be a slow waltz, or a fast paced jive? Start to take life nice and easy, or just pretend; you’re not breaking a sweat? But then undone, the heart laced with some bitterness. The dance, turned into an old country song. Parts of your past, still tugging on your heart. The two steps, away from a heart break. You realize, the shoes is on the other foot. A line dance, that has your heart in knots. Do you a avoid stepping on the line drawn, or time for the Cross?
There’s lots of approaches to life, we all have our own personal style. But, you can never avoid this simple truth. Every day, should be a start; with the end in mind. Not just where the day will take you, but where your heart will lead you? At the end of your days, may the journey be a forever dance. One that leaves your heart, breathless!
With just a breath, my heart beated. With just a whisper, captivated was my soul. The love spoke, then came the reign. A heart overwhelmed, the soul, an overflow. Just a glimpse, my soul… speechless. Just a gaze, my heart… breathless. A river, silently flowing into an ocean; a heart colliding, within the depth. The destination, deeper. Discovering the depth, the length, the height; to know every breadth. A heart on a journey, to feel the gentle presence. To hear whispers of love, underneath my every breath. See wall after wall tumble, through the very mist within my eyes. Tears of joy, a soul drenched… in a forever reign. Another love, there will Never Be!
All I will ever want, all I will ever need. A love times three, my heart I forever give thee. The sun, the moon, the stars. All combined, they could Never outshine Your heart. Ever compare to the majestic splendor, the true wonder of Your love. They don’t have my heart, have not captured my gaze. They’re just objects fitted in the sky. Not like Your love, fixing to forever move my soul. Your love gives my heart words, but yet my soul… lost for words. Your love is a song, the lyric, the rhythm, the chorus, every verse. Even now, my heart and soul are in unison. Your love, what gives it the resounding harmony. A sweeter sound, will Never Be!
Speak, let my pen overflow. Show the strength of Your love, let the ink be… an endlessflow. Let words be seen, but every verse… Your voice heard. Whispers of love, a-muse-in my soul. You have my soul, You want my heart; but it’s not complete, unless You have my love. Your love, what changed everything. The beauty in me, out of Your ashes. Anyone, who gets between Your heart, and my soul. Will surely be moved, the love is that strong. Everyday, another dawn upon my soul; Your love stands alone. There’s nobody like You, and there will… Never Be!
Faith today, is hope for tomorrow. A heart with true hope, a soul showing faith to believe. We all have a dream, that one day; All… will be revealed. Not in just black and white, but the truest color.. of love. Shown in full Hd (Human Decency). Agreeing to disagree, but still reflect humanity. Supporting each other’s dreams in harmony, with a resonating sound quality… of love; heart check, one, two. What is said, what can be truly believed. A clear picture, that looks real. An accurate definition, the true meaning of love. We love to hear, but tend not to listen. We love to see, but pretend to be blind. 20/20, called perfect vision. The eyes can have a good lens, but it’s the heart; that reveals the imperfections… within the soul. The eye receives a portrait, but the heart has to interpret. A dream gives the heart, hope, something for the soul to believe in. But a dream still needs a clear vision, to see the dreams come true. Without a vision, dreams perish. A heart is not beholden, to just one dream. Don’t squander A Dream, don’t stomp on someone’s; because you lack vision. All dreams are created equal, the freedom to dream; for everyone. May you all have a dream, get your heart’s desire!
You thought your soul was tied up tight, but the heart… came undone; tripped up, by the road called life. A soul entering a race, Humanity; in the beginning… life, seemed like every step would make your heart a winner. Even though the finish line, was still unclear. So many hearts are looking, trying to find purpose; but not always seeking… truth. Every day, a new beginning. The evening passes, the morning comes; another day… to let your heart shine. As we run this race, we tend to bump into obstacles. Sometimes a reflection, the light you hoped to be. Life now half-done, and the journey seems barely started. The feeling, is defeated. Too many wrong turns, dreams unfulfilled. You dig in, but fatigue starts to set in; frustration, the unforeseen potholes. Your beloved race, telling you to give up. Avoid the pending doom, join the unaccomplished. Your heart doesn’t belong, your worth is incomplete. That’s an absolute lie, coming from the pit… of a cold cold heart!
A heart coming completely undone, lashing out; to cover up brokenness. Finding strength in brokenness, might seem like just a broken record. Even a scratch-in… the surface, can produce a sound. The love for, that resonates within. We live in a broken world, but broken, does not mean hopeless. Brokenness can resonate beauty, when it becomes what gave you your strength. What’s revealed, unbelievable strength, through brokenness. When the human race, tries to tear you down; brokenness, what builds you up… even stronger. Broken, will never mean defeated; if you don’t let it. If you can’t run, then walk. If can’t walk, then just crawl. If you don’t want to crawl, then just rest. Until your heart finds new strength, your second wind; to rise again. Brokenness is not the end, hope found; a new beginning!
You don’t have to know, what you will choose tomorrow. Just the choice, your heart can live with… today; to secure your soul a future. A heart may believe, to know true beauty. But if the understanding doesn’t transform, how to see beyond sight. Brokenness, seen only in the now; never as beauty becoming. Believing begins within, a belief that; change is being made. How a heart finds strength, the soul knows beauty; even in a broken place. A soul at peace, a heart knowing Amazing; in gracefully broken. So many souls, are tripped up trying to become first… by their own heart. We all know how to run in the race, it’s the walk that’s the most challenging. Why, sometimes we just need; to start again… with a crawl. Brokenness finds, just don’t let it define. Finish the race strong, by choosing what steps; your heart needs to take. It’s about your own personal walk, and every day; A New Beginning!
My soul is in agreement, but some days; my heart tends to colors, a bit outside the lines. Love is the portrait, the picture not yet finished; but the story being told. My heart and soul, have discussed the terms. Yes, amen; let it be so, I promise to love You forever. But yet, shortly into the agreement. Your love saw, so many broken promises. I agreed to love You, give You my everything. But sometimes, I still withheld a breath. Let me renegotiate, between heart and soul. We have accepted, it’s once again time… for bended knees. A heart not beholden, to its own viewpoint. My opinion is irrelevant, I already agreed; Your love will always get the final say. In accordance to Your word, and in agreement with Your love. My heart and soul agree, to forever trust Your heart. Even when I don’t deserve it, Your love is thinking of me!
My soul, is not under a contract; but Your love, what puts it all in context. You made the ultimate Sacrifice, so therefore why shouldn’t my heart not acknowledge; Your love is just too kind to me. You agreed to do it, lay Your love all out… for all to see. And for that, my soul will forever be grateful. The price, my heart will never be able to repay. As long as I have breath. This love, will never be a soul tied up; in legalistic bindings. Free, to vigorously pursue Your heart. Day after day, it will be a heart committed. The soul commitment, my love Yours forever. Even though yesterday was another stumble, today a fall… short of my true potential. Tomorrow, probably failing; to move Your heart… with All of my love. My heart is thankful, that You have provided my soul a way; for a moment of grace. Knowing all, that my heart would put Your love through. You still wanted, to enter into a love agreement; with my heart and soul. This is The Agreement, to love You true… for the rest of my days!
To be with You, thoughts of love no longer hidden. Secrets, no longer kept; a heart forever exposed. To be into You; deep, but a word, depth just a place. Deeper, where words have no place. The heart feels, but the soul interprets; what words tries to explain. The mind blown, the heart overwhelmed, the soul finding peace; love… hovers. Every facet creates a move, every breath becomes an echo. Predicated on a true understanding, of a love divine. A love like the wind, the breadth unfathomable; the depth is like an ocean. Even in just a mist, the soul can feel the forever reign!
To be, found lost within a gaze. To be, breathless within Your presence. To be, wrapped up within a forever embrace. To be, captivated by the awe and wonder. To be, captured; struck by the beauty. To be, desperate for just a touch. To be, overwhelmed by amazing love. To be safe, content, grateful, loved; completely lost for words. To be, or not to be? What my soul, will never question. To be a soul free, to be heart vulnerable; to be completely in love. That’s the question, to be with You!
This is the time, a time such as this. This is the day, the only day truly promised. A time for change, a day to see a change. To set aside some time, to forever see a change; in heart and soul. This is the moment, this is a moment. Your moment in time, to possess the land; see your Jericho fall. This year, doors will be opened. Chase lack out of your life, watch as the shadows of doubt; walk out the open doors. Then let a new perspective, be forever in your heart. Let the glory of the latter, be truly better… than the former. Expect a thousand fold increase, all you will ever need; faith, and believe. This is the season, the season to let your life shine; brighter than ever before. Spread your wings, soar even higher. Aim for the stars, let hope take hold of your heart; until you’ve seen the light of heaven. Then lavish your new found hope, on someone in need. A heart full, of true love and kindness!
A prophetic understanding is not needed, to know you can’t expect a Resolution to something. Without first getting a Revelation, to what your heart truly needs. We need to be thankful, for the little things. Be grateful, for everything we have… today. There will never truly be a change in mind, without first knowing a change has taken place… in the heart. What’s the expectation, for your heart? What are you expecting to see different, not just this year, but every day. Do you want a better vision… for your life? Just so you can say, you have sight? Do you want insight, to see life with true clarity? So many have the ability to see, but still lack the ability to perceive. This Year, your heart choose to chase after greater achievements. But forever let the true pursuit be, how to have Greater Victories, Today!
This Year, is a song released in 2016; by Israel Strong, a young rising African gospel artist.
