I Can’t!

• 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; The Dance!

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!

Thirsty!

Thirsty, so many souls that don’t even realize… they’re thirsty. Souls so parched, but can’t see it within their heart. How to take shelter, within the risen Son. For a heart, to absorb all of life’s true blessings. Your love needs to be the true water, that soaks up every inch of our soul. If not, dreams turn into dried up hopes. It’s not about unrest, but what’s underneath the surface; a thirsting, to truly have more of You. Only if, our souls could thirst for You, and You alone. We would truly know, love is a thirsting; but You are the source, for true fulfillment. Your love is the only thing, that can get water; to come out of a heart of stone. Only if a heart could truly soak that all in, forever soak it up? A soul would truly be live, deep beneath the fulfilling love. It’s not about surrendering to a moment, but living fulfilled; within a surrendered heart!

Why should it take having no hope, to realize we truly need You? I don’t have to pray, for You to take control; You are… in control. We just need to see, You are our living hope. In this dry, thirsty land; Your love is the water. The overflow, found deep within Your will. Living water, found forever flowing; with overflowing hope. Show our hearts, how to be truly thirsty; but only for You, Lord. Show us how to walk a mile, not in just any shoes; but follow the footprint, left in the sands of time. We don’t have to draw on another blueprint, it’s still a faith walk. We can try to gain the world, seek after having a kingdom; but, You will still be Lord. Next to You, we would have gained nothing… that will last. Oh Lord, oh Lord; our needs to thirst, just for You. There’s absolutely nothing, that our hearts should want more; than to know You. Thirsty, why can’t every heart truly see; the thirst is for You? How can a heart think it can breathe on its own, when Your love is the breath? A thirsty soul will never be quenched, without first knowing; where to find the fountain!

Father, may every vain imagination loss its luster. May every heart imagine what the world would be like; if the fabric of Your love, weren’t the true tapestry?Quench the thirst for power, if Your love is not the source. True understanding, is in the sweet taste of the surrender. I can only imagine, if every heart truly wanted to live, and breathe for You. Water, would surely flow out of my soul. Just to see Your love, being embrace by a world; needing to know, how deep is Your heart. So many have a thirst, the want to feel loved; but don’t see the need to have a thirsting, that will draw us closer to Your heart. So many believe, they’re in the know; but yet don’t know, there’s no hope without You. All, or nothing; what makes most hearts miss, what was in the true sacrifice. Every drip, is life saving. It’s in the thirsting, that truly makes it soul changing. Father, when the thirst takes hold; let the burning desire be, quenched by nothing else. Than the pure water, found within Your refreshing love. Hold nothing back, from the heart of a true seeker. Pour out Your love, for therein lies the absolute truth. Thirsty is the place, where Your heart will forever be found!

The Know!

You know this, you may know a little bit of that; but, all still not known. What you don’t know, therein lies the opportunity to seek. So many hearts mount a relentless pursuit, trying to find truth; only to come face to face, with the unknown. It’s not a moment to fear, but a moment to search within. Can a soul truly find peace, if the heart doesn’t even know how to find rest? You don’t know, what you don’t know. Truth is revealed, not when close off your heart. But when clarity becomes the unveiled truth, when the darkness can still blind; what may be seen as a noble gesture. Knowledge is power, but knowing is still therefore not true power; without true understanding. Our truth can never judge another. For even though we know this, know a bit of that; all still not known. Truth is empowered, not only by what you know; but where the truth is found, and what helps guide your heart to the truth!

You don’t need to know, how many mountains you can conquer. Just believe, every valley experience will teach your heart how to overcome; whatever stands in the way of your faith. No one can say, they know everything. Breath, let’s you know to breathe in today, as a promising day. For this I know, tomorrow is never promised… to anyone. Whatever I need to know, my heart knows where to find the words. In every noun, in every verb; love is embedded in every verse. It’s not about what you know, but what you truly believe. You might know this, know some of that? But the question is, do you Know… Him. The One, who knows all; what’s in our hearts. Let go, of what you think you know. Let your heart take hold, of the only truth your heart needs to know. The truth, of where every heart begins. Where the journey truly becomes the path, to knowing the real truth!

We all stumble, we all have gotten tripped up along the way. But, that will never change one thing. A heart will be forever lost in the dark, when it doesn’t know; where true hope is found? When you truly recognize the know, fear, and the unknown. May know where to find you, but when you truly stand on the know; it will never rock your world. If we could see, how to get our hearts out of the way. Perhaps, ego wouldn’t make our hearts stumble as much. But it’s so good to know, tripped up is just another fall; into the arms of grace. A demonstration of love, favor being showcased; the glory forever seen. What needs to be the know, even the darkest days; God is still in the midst. Knowing Him, is knowing… I AM; loved. We have to live right-eous, walk in His power. Then we will truly know, His strength is what’s holding up; everything we have come to know. In a time such as this, the truth will forever remain unchanged. The Know, can never be realized; without your heart fist being enlightened, by the truth of His Amazing love!

Truly understood, how much Your love needed to be in control. That was the very moment, Your love became the one thing; my heart knew it could never live without!

It’s Your sacrifice, that has shown a heart how to rise up every day, and shine even brighter. So many, seek after monetary gain. Just to realize, they’ve only gained; a truly empty heart. Incorporating; mind, body, and soul. How a heart focuses on the bottom line, the pursuit of Your heart. Your love gives so much guidance, challenges my heart to give… the very best inside. It’s not about hard work, but true dedication. Undistracted devotion, that’s how love truly grows. Your love alone gets the credit, why my heart has even grown. You don’t need to promote yourself, in my heart; Your love will forever reign. Your love has achieved, what no other heart can ever claim; King of my heart.

Receding!

Receding, the fear, the water; receding. Hearts no longer overwhelmed, tears no longer drowning out the day. Waves of emotion, clashing with the sure. The message, not in a bottle… up emotions. In the step back, the push back against the fear; how you take back your faith. Even in a dark moment, even in the darkness; hope can still be found. When it finally dawns, the truth is revealed. Shadows will cast doubts, but you control what you fear. An enlightened soul is not a afraid, even in the darkest times. Within it is a calming feeling, peace within the moment. A whisper heard in the dark, a song resounding in the night. The wind will blow, the rain will fall. Every momentary thing, even unprecedented; will surely pass away. Grow your faith, with a seed, time, and harvest!

Even when the sun goes down, don’t let your hope fade away… into the darkness. Let whatever looms, roll of your prevailing faith. When overwhelmed comes, to capsize your hope. Shipwreck your heart, flood your soul… with doubts. Don’t let it break your faith, break up your confidence. Just let it break through the fear, and watch the waters recede. A heart finding the calm, even if the place… is called a frightening moment. Swept away, is not trying to cling; to whatever you can hold on to. But knowing, what has a hold on your heart. Every day, stand your ground. Don’t ever let your faith retreat, or your hope diminish. When you position your heart for victory, fear surrenders… to your resolve. Advance your faith, and watch the darkness dwindle; at the dawn of the approaching hope. When fear the tapers off, the sun shines again. It’s not about chasing after the dawn, but how to truly thrive; living in the light… of hope. Receding, the fear, the water; will Recede! May 27, 2020

The Journey!

I don’t live in the past, but yet will never forget that the past; helped show how to live our best life… today. Along the way, we sometimes stumble. How we learn to walk the journey with true purpose, how we know how to rise up… stronger; go further than the day before? Whenever I have trouble standing, I lean on my rock; my resting place, firm foundation. Under the canopy, where renewed strength is found. To boldly conquer each step of the journey, not fear what lies ahead. We look to the future, but never fear what it holds. Live in the moment, by not letting it slip away. Even if every step is hidden, by the foggy moments. Let faith be the light, that shines hope on your destiny; even if the way seems unclear. Knowing, only part of what’s truly revealed. What you may not know, becomes true clarity; when the trust is transcended, by normal comprehension!

Dream impossible dreams, believe that all your dreams are truly possible. Have a dream, a clear vision; will help guide the journey. Keep your head down, to show a heart truly humbled; to not take every breath for granted. Raise your hope high, humbly fight the good fight. Life is a journey, sometimes we need to learn how to be still; to hear when your faith is trying to roar. Never let your hope be silenced, let your heart boldly speak truth. Faith gives a heart, the power to conquer every kind of fear. Within the silent moments, when you realize; every heartbeat has its own distinct sound. Strength within each rhythm, and therein lies the resounding voice. Whispers of love, the depth truly felt; when the heart is profoundly moved!

Love the life you live, live the life you get to love. For when it’s all said and done, this life is a journey. Love, what takes you by the heart. A journey, meant to be walked hand and hand… with humility. Humanity, can sometimes journey down the wrong path. Why, every day becomes another choice. Follow your heart, or follow the truth? There’s a difference; love leads the way, but the heart has to choose… to follow. One path brings the heart to the place; where the soul finds freedom, and the soul life abundant. The other, takes a heart down the path called wayward, and a dead end. If the journey, sets your heart in the wrong direction? There’s a place, somewhere in the middle of the journey. When you reach, the proverbial fork in the road; may it be called, a new perspective. The moment, The Journey; the heart with a decision to make!

Fun Friday; The Glue!

Baby baby you, me; two hearts, stuck like glue. May, thirty two years; but it only took my heart a glimpse, to see Forever. My faith in the love, forever strong. My word, my bond; that will never come undone. The thought of that, and to all those who said something different; yeah, just crazy talk. Sure, there’s been some rough times. Some parts, that have needed a little bit more glue. T.L.C, have meant different things. “Tender Loving Care,” what’s applied a high percentage of the time. But there are moments when, Time, Learn, Correction… tape; gives you an opportunity, for a do over. We’ve made it through the hard times. Had to apply a whole lot of love, when the day brought with it the rain. Even when the tears, are part of an accidental forecast. The glue makes for a quick dry, creating an even stronger bond. Two hearts determined, pledged to forever stick together. Baby, baby my heart; forever stuck on you!

Even in the darkest moments, our love still knew how to find each other. Even when a two sided opinion, becomes just one side feeling; it’s just a band-aid fix, the glue going through the test… Stress. Woman, your heart has always seen; how my love has been clingy. Stuck to your heart, just like glue. Even when our two hearts end up, on opposite sides of a sticky situation. Your love will still be fly, my cutie pie. I don’t need any paper, to tell me that. Wax on, wax off; ha. For this love, our hearts will fight. Birth pain, growing pains. The terrible two’s… times three, and of course me. The put up, love showing up. Crazy love, what stuck out so often; what stuck to our hearts… like glue. A wife, a mother; the pouring out of the best inside. From the very start, your love quickly noticed to be; a crucial part of the family glue. Over the years, the glue has definitely been stretched; but always based in elasticity. The love, may not have always been super; but the glue.. Crazy. Fast bonding, but our hearts chose long lasting. Not always sweet love, but still worth sticking to. Sticking around, until old and gray. The gummy years, by any other name; just as sweet!

Girl, your candy love enabled; sticky fingers, so I stole your heart. At first contact, my heart was cemented to your love. Resistance at that point, futile. It was a close encounter, E.T…. phone home. (Estimated Time), within seconds; a heart connection, the call to Daddy God. I’ve found the one, predestined. Some days, became sticky moments. Two hearts in holding pattern, trying to work out the sticking point. What always stuck, deep within the crevices of the love, trust; the true bonding agent. Whenever the trust, seemed like it might fail? God’s love, what kept it from disintegrating. Many came to Test the love, but they couldn’t Drive… us apart. The sticker shock, the commitment; not what they were expecting. The love was strong, and I wasn’t about to let; any of the negativity stick. Whatever they implied, was reinforced with the truth of God’s love. We just let it all, roll off the faith therein. Laughter, an intricate add in. But, not meant to be used as just an adjatiave; to deflect from revealing the depth, within the love. Just meant to help loosen up the love, give the glue a little bit more stickability. But, the most essential component; found within God’s love, what binds two hearts together. If both hearts are willing to recognize, acknowledge that His love truly is; The Glue!
