Sometimes I get lost within my own thoughts, when all I really need to do; is just get forever lost within Your heart. I don’t ever want to be so deep in thought; that I simply miss an opportunity to get lost, just being within Your presence. My words, my expressions, my thoughts; with one focus, Your heart. Don’t ever let my thoughts, get between Your love and my heart; unless Your love, becomes my only thought!
I try my best not to get in my own head, even a strategic thinker; can think why… me? But then a quiet whisper within my heart says, why not; you? When I think back to the days as a young man. The days when I just sat in the corner, just watching, just observing; but very much lost, within my own thoughts. People had to check, to see if I was still breathing. I didn’t realize it then, those quiet moments; Your love was the still whisper, invading my heart. Your presence was my only companion; my best friend, was truly Your love!
I still am a man of few words, it absolutely blows my mind; that I’m telling everyone our story, I could not have imagined. To this day Your love still invades my thoughts, but now moves my heart. The words expressed, are not even my own thoughts; Your love puts them within my heart. Just thought You should know, my heart is okay with that!
Whenever I get a little too lost in thought, all You ever have to do; is gaze into my heart, Your love will always get my attention. It seems like I can no longer hide my heart; not even my thoughts, or my true feelings. So if there was a moment, that I had only one thought of You within a minute; I do apologize. It should be every single second, my heart even gets to take a breath. To now deny Your love, would be to deny my own heart!
I can never again just hide behind my thoughts, my heart is learning to rest upon Your love. The desire became a passion, the passion turned into a love. My heart is letting go, trying to allow Your love; to take every thought captive. These days I don’t get too lost within my own thoughts, I now get lost; endlessly writing about this love. It will never be my thoughts, but Your love on display. May others see that it’s Your love, flowing from within my heart!
My heart wants to go the distance. Just to have Your love near, I would walk a mile in Your shoes; to be one step closer to Your heart. The journey is long, sometimes I feel that the distance between us; is overcome by the miles. To show You that my heart is willing to go higher, my heart would walk that proverbial fine line. Just to show, that I truly don’t fear falling; more in love with You, Your love is the building block of my faith. Simply put, Your love is the air that breathes within. I completely trust, that Your love will never let my heart fall to pieces!
That’s why I need to train my heart; so it can totally and completely fall in line, with Your unconditional love. Perhaps, if I joined a boot camp; I can learn how to discipline my mind, and build up my heart muscle. But what good would that do, when it’s Your love; that strengthens my faith, which builds the love within my heart. I will never draw the line, and limit how close I will let Your love get to the center of my heart. You’ve already shown, that Your love is truly limitless!
Now that I am older, and somewhat wiser; I’m finally allowing my heart to be searched. For years I’ve done the very thing I promised that I would never do; stepped way over the line, and have taken Your love for granted so many times. I drew a line in the sand, promised to be faithful; but faith without works, doesn’t even come close to blessing Your heart. I saw one footprint within the sand, and assumed; that I was not loved. But those were the moments, when Your love was holding me up!
Forgive me, I crossed the line; the very moment when I failed to love You as I should. But yet, through it all, You’ve always been my Lifeline. Now I truly know, that Your love will never let me go. So this time I draw another line; from my heart, to the center of Your love. Test my heart, see if Your love truly dwells deep within. Your love is well able, to pull me back in line; whenever my heart wanders, just a bit too far from Your love. May that forever be The Line, my heart will never again cross!
Crawl, walk, run; that’s the designated framework. The execution, that’s the plan that yields the success. The creator designed our hearts with such precision, a work of art; a masterpiece. It’s not a coincidence that Jesus was a carpenter, what else would the son of the creator be? Even on earth, He was still designing, framing, building; the lasting foundation, was His love!
When the devil tries to frame your heart, as just an imitation, a fraud; God’s love defends us. A lawyer in the courtroom, seated at the right hand; pleading our case. The charge; having a heart made from love, made to love, designed to show the love. Part of the most well orchestrated framework; Not Guilty. God’s love is the defender of hearts; our defense will forever be, His Grace!
Picture this, the devil can try over and over again to wrongfully frame my heart; nail my heart to the wall. It doesn’t bother me, my heart will still be a picture of God’s love. So my friends, take the frame up; let your heart be on display. Let the accuser see, that you view it as a badge of honor. Your heart is truly worth framing, designed to be; a display of God’s Love!
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope!” Jeremiah 29:11 ESV
Your love is the covering, our security; a love that covers. Your love is the awning, a love renewed at the break of every dawning. Night or day, a protection can be found; within Your love. A shelter, the refuge; a hiding place. Your love is the safe haven that hearts can run to; when the storms of life, gets to be more than a heart can bear. A love so transparent, being able to see how much Your love covers; show how truly big Your heart is.
Your love doesn’t have a glass ceiling, shattered hearts can find safety within the covering. A place that covers every kind of brokenness. Forever, that becomes the unbreakable, everlasting bond; the canopy!
My friends, whatever situation within your life needs to be met, just ask, seek to find; that you’re covered. Your marriage; covered. Your kids; covered. Your future; covered. Even when it seems like it’s about to rain, even when the rain just won’t stop pouring; from your eyes. There’s a love that truly has you covered, stay under the canopy; let God’s love forever be, your covering!
Your love has taken over me. Father, I’ve learned to depend on you. I have confidence in you, in you oh Lord, I put my trust!
This post was inspired by a song with the same title, by Frank Edwards. Special shout out to Tammy @ God Inspired Art for posting this song on her website. From time to time I will put up a song inspired post. Hope that it was a blessing!
When I think about all that You are, all that Your love is. Words are just the beginning, a grateful heart; will still never be the end. For years people have asked; “how do I come up with so many things to write about?” They truly didn’t know, they just couldn’t see; it wasn’t the how, but always the who. Even if I could explain, the understanding would still be the dilemma; the love moves, and my heart puts it into words!
It has never been about thinking, or even about feeling; feelings can change, just like the wind. For me this is about doing, showing; that love is truly a never ending story. My heart could write a thousand stories, and not even struggle; to write ten thousand more. My heart is not special, but why do anything; if you’re not truly willing to do everything? The beauty within is not my will, but a presence that moves. Unseen is the love, the fabric woven within; permanently wrapped around my heart. Breathing becomes the air, love is in the air; why I breathe!
Even when I’m alone within the busyness of the day, the stillness becomes my soul, listening; then my heart writes, endlessly. I could not have imagined, or conjured up this within a dream. The true essence of love doesn’t become, it just is; everything. The joy, the touch, the reign; the love I know, is the love the world needs to know. Every single heartbeat has a story, I’m just willing; to share mine!
Lord, I will love You for the earth under my feet. I will love You for the sun I see, the son I feel. I will love You for the falling rain, even the rain; that falls from my eyes. I will love You, for a heart that knows how to break. My eyes have seen much, my heart breaks; then comes the falling rain. Nevertheless, I will love You for the air, the breath that has always been Your love. The sweetness that permeates within, emotional has been the journey. I hope, that my heart has also been; Your joy?
Can anyone see, can anyone see that my heart is floating; floating within the gravity of Your love? The force of Your love is so attractive to my heart, Your love just won’t let go of my heartstrings. It seems like forever, as far back as I can remember; my heart is being pulled, into the center of Your love. As a child, I was taught the concept of relativity, but that concept seems to be utterly irrelevant. My heart is utterly amazed, the very laws that governs my universe; does not seem to apply to Your love!
There’s this lighthearted motion within my soul, a gravitational pull drawing my heart; it’s the strength of Your love. Pulling on my heart so gently, the gentleness; takes my every breath. Take my very soul, to the absolute edge of Your love; let it stay right there. Until Your love takes complete hold of my heart, and my heart can’t help but to fall forever, into Your love. It seems as if You want the entire world to watch my heart; plummet into the very depth of Your love?
The intensity is great, but at the very same time; it’s with such an eloquence and grace, that’s part of the gravity. The emotions are strong, it’s a fight sometimes to keep it together. Welled up tears sometimes falls, I just don’t know why me; it must be the gravity. If Your love was to come any closer to my heart? Everyone would surely see why the tears fall, it’s the overwhelming gravity; that Your love knows my name. So therefore let the gravity be, the love that takes every breath from within my lungs. Then let the absolute same gravity, be felt throughout my very soul!
Let Your love be the one and only substance that fills. Let the life that beats my heart be, just Your love. The life that has become my air, the true sustaining presence; the breath within. The oxygen, drifting between my heart and my soul. Your love just won’t let my heart drift away into the darkness. Your love is the light, the light that eclipses every bit of darkness; the light that forever emanating within. If I could get just a glimpse into Your heart, the problems I see looking from a distance; would truly seem so small. That becomes the true gravity, of Your love!
Day after day I find my heart at the edge of tomorrow, but I will forever embrace the newness of the day. For my heart would never truly feel alive, if not for Your love. So, is anyone truly starting to see the gravity, can anyone truly understand the gravity of this love? My heart just can’t breathe without this love, this is the gravity; within the depth of this love. The very reason why I’m living, the reason why I’m even breathing. The only reason why, I’ve even been given this heart. Can anyone truly see the gravity, weightlessness fills my heart. My breath this is, my air it will forever be. The story I have been called to tell, that is the gravity; that now becomes, my heart!
Whenever you find yourself lost within a fog, God’s love is the light. Finding His love is a journey, you may not know just where your heart is taking you. To broaden the horizon, sail into your tomorrow; let God’s love be the lighthouse!
First, you need to open up your heart, unlock your true potential; God’s love is the key. Just remember, the heart is a beacon, hone into your calling; let God’s love forever be the lighthouse. Follow the compass of your beating heart, let the journey be your blessing; allow God’s love to be your lighthouse!
The light of God’s love may seem far, but the distance is just six inches; from the ear to the heart. Listen for His voice, let the light of His love show your heart the way. The distance, will truly be overcome, by hope; God’s love is the lighthouse!
Don’t ever lose hope, stay the course; let faith be your everlasting guide. Finding God’s love is a beautiful journey, it will take your heart beyond the stars. But if you should ever lose your way, the light of God’s love will never lead your heart astray. Follow the light within, let God’s love forever be the light. That takes your heart home; into the loving arms of The One, who truly loves you!
