Favor, Virtue, Love; what Your heart sees in me. So in turn why wouldn’t my heart, express My Affections? Such a gentle feeling, a genuine closeness; wrapped up within such overwhelming emotions. A true and lasting fondness, within this heart of mine; affections of love. I will endlessly offer You, words of endearment. Love will forever be the sentiment, but with my undying devotion. For Your love, has taken such good care of my heart and soul. A soul truly affected, but a heart; forever changed. A heart firmly rooted, a soul deeply grounded; Your love, my foundation. A love that brings out so much emotion, but within the stillness of heart; quiet affections. You already have my heart and soul. So what I will forever offer to You, my admiration!
If truth be told, I don’t want my heart to get the attention; don’t want my heart to be the spotlight. All I prefer, all I’ve ever needed; Your quiet love, forever slow dancing with my heart. But that’s the beauty within this, it’s not about me. Your love gets center stage, it’s Your heart on display. Your love is; The Reason, for the spotlight. Being vulnerable, is not a weakness. But true strength, for a heart willing to be on display, with true affections. Your love moves my soul, but has a forever hold; on my heart. I don’t need tailored pretty words; as a show of my affection, or to be forever in love. Before I took a breath, even before my heart knew what it was to breathe. Your love was, now is; but will forever be, my heart and soul!
My mind at times tries to run wild, but in the quietness. Your love stills my soul, where my heart has learned to breathe. Your love is my calm, within the madness. I know You are for me, with me; no one else, truly knows me. How can I ever live, ever breath; without Your love? Still my soul, let Your voice be all I hear. My Affections are for You, help me to truly see; but fix my heart, on the things my eyes will never see. While my heart is loving on You. May I never neglect to share the love, the passion, the warmth afforded to my heart; with those closest to my heart. Like a feather caught up within the wind, breathe within. Have Your way with my heart; until my soul is, swept away. Your love is within This Place; here, now, forever!
Here is the post I was planning to post last Friday, I had to take the last few days for family. I have also decided to changed the days I post, read, comment; the balance that I’ve allowed to get unbalanced. Weekends are going to be dedicated to keep the balance how it should be!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post, and I look forward to reading as much of your post that I have time for!
Within the stillness, within the quietness of my heart; where the love resides. Within the quietness, the place I sometimes felt unwanted; but yet within the stillness, forever loved. Speaking to myself, how it may have seemed? To me, myself; but I… was never alone, there was a quiet love. I couldn’t see it, didn’t yet know it. Small still were the whispers, speaking love; Encamped within my soul. I could have gone mad, but that was never my destiny. There was a quiet love, breathing; moving within every breath of my heart. One heartbeat, within a resounding love. Within the quietness, within the stillness of my soul; where my heart learned how to breathe!
A heart predestined, set apart to know; how to interpret what can only be heard, through the stillness of the soul. My heart can take no credit, the love that breathes within; This Poetic Love. A Silent River, stirred forevermore; by an ocean of love. A quiet love, resting beautifully within my soul. Watching, hovering, leading; guiding my heart, within the quietness. Asking my heart to not only quote verses, but to show vulnerability as strength. By letting the love etched through the quietness, be the Inspired verse. Not to show proof of an undying commitment, not to show the depth of the love; but show what it truly means, to be a heart unashamed. A heart that has found so much beauty, within a resounding love; within the quietness of my soul. A love that helps my heart to breathe, to a soul forever set free!
Within the quietness, so much was said; but no words needed to be spoken. What resonates, what is heard loud and clear; silent whispers. The love within every capture, is the love penned down; within every verse. Words will never get in the way; between my heart, and every breadth of this quiet love. Whenever I feel overwhelmed, when emotions get the best of me. I retreat to the quiet, to hear a peaceful hush. Within the quietness, where I found my confidence; where my heart found a voice. The Place, where my heart is always left speechless; but it’s now my soul, that’s left forever moved. A child once so reserved, now with a heart; unrestrained. This is The Introduction, welcome to my heart; to The Quiet Love, that breathes within!
This is the next part to the story that I’m sharing this week. I have also highlighted, and linked some previously told stories; for those who may not have been around when I posted them last year. They all tie into the story at some point. I hope this post, and the others are a blessing!
Say something, so much is said: but my heart is desperately trying to interpret, say something. I am the one, the only; but yet the distance, still overcomes the miles. My heart will never be, what you will it to be. I am just me, won’t you just let me be; me, myself, I… will always love you, I just need you to say something. My heart doesn’t want to follow, it needs to learn how to be led. So teach me, show my heart the example; I know right, but see much wrong. Lead the way, don’t just show which way to find; the road less traveled. Around the bend, but how could my heart have known; the road was so long, and winding? I would have loved, to take the journey together; I needed you, to say something!
Say something, anything; say you, say me. Make my heart understand, break the silence within; don’t leave it broken. Giving up on you, will never cross my heart; hope to die, not an option. I will stumble, I will fall; but that will not be all. I have strength within, yes; I’ll rise again. How can I learn to love, strife was the lesson being taught? Swallow the pride, love covers; love in true harmony. Say something, before it’s too late; time is passing. No, time has passed; you no longer need to say anything. It’s no longer about something; but Someone. My heart has found a love, “The Quiet Love;” that has filled the void. The Reason, why my heart; now has so much to say!
This particular piece is a bit different, it speaks a little to how I felt growing up. I was an only child, an introvert; from a single parent home. I never felt close enough to my mother to open up, express feelings. My grandma and I on the other hand, was very close. I’m sure for my mother, breaking into Fort Knox; was probably easier. Just like Jericho, I was tightly shut up. It took forty years in the wilderness, but the walls started to come down. As a child, I sent many days alone, or feeling alone; even with others around. Family functions I would just sit alone in a corner, watching everyone was my entertainment!
I had a few friends, but TV and music; were what helped to occupy my time, listening to music was my solace. I didn’t know it then, but God was already my everything. Ten years ago when I turned forty, God showed me. That He was watching, hovering, teaching, leading. His great love, was guiding my heart; within the silence. That‘s when I realized, that I was never truly alone growing up. I had a Father, not just a Father; a Daddy. But not just a Daddy, a Friend; closer than a brother, forever loving on my heart. The Who, has My Affection!
Last week’s song Inspired post; You are The Reason. Talks to the Why, the reason why iWrite; the reason there is a why. The next two posts, will also tie into the story!
My heart is breathing, Your love keeps it beating; forever racing, to get closer to Your heart. One, maybe too many times; my heart found itself; in an oh too familiar place. My heart was too much at home, in a place; called silence. My mind sometimes got in the way, six inches; between the head and the heart. But the distance, kept my heart tripping; stumbling in the dark. What once seemed like a chasm, now filled with Your love. The love in Your heart is the reason, the only reason; why I never lost my mind, alone within the silence. Your love is the stillness within my soul, the voice that echoes within my heart. Your love met me where I was, yes; You are the reason, why my heart won’t ever stop racing!
Your love stilled my soul, but let’s my heart keep racing. Quieted my heart, but a love fierce like thunder; forever stirs up my soul. You are the reason, why I’m even breathing. So I hope, that You’ve never looked at me differently? When I seem so absolutely hopeless, in love with You. It’s Your love that gives me the courage, to conquer every mountain; the strength to swim within Your ocean. My every breath, comes from Your love; but You already know that. Even if I tried, my heart could never keep from You the secrets; buried deep within my soul. You are the reason, why my heart is not afraid; to breathe… out every single word!
Just to be with You, for my heart to get to know Your love; beyond my expectations. Your love is the fix, when the moment; is called broken. How can my heart ever repay, Your love came and fixed; what I thought was forever broken. You are the reason, Your love is the only reason; I am whole, no longer broken. Through every valley, Your love has a forever hold; what makes my heart feel safe. Your love has a true hold, but it’s to Your heart; I will forever cling. I have a desire, my heart has just one desire; lost forever within Your love!
Everyday Your love reminds my heart, why I love You so. You are the reason, there’s absolutely no other reason; why my heart would want to keep breathing. There it goes again, Your love just won’t let it stop; the tears, are falling. Overwhelmed, the feeling. You are the reason, the one and only reason; why my heart keeps on beating. I’m writing this down, not because I need everyone to see. But because I need Everyone to know, You are the reason; to how I feel. They need to see, they need to know. Until my very last breath; You Are The Reason!
Today’s song Inspired; is a song released in 2018, by Calum Scott. An English singer, songwriter. In 2013, he won a talent competition put on by his local newspaper. In 2015, he became known worldwide; after competing on the popular television show, Britain’s Got Talent. Mar 8, 2019.
It’s always present, but for so long; never seen. It forever stays in one place, but it’s the stillness of Your presence; what is forever moving me. It feels so close to You, but so distant at times. Your love makes it jumps for joy, but the silence; used to be the place, the forever embrace. Your love has captivated my being, but does my love even come close; knowing how to move Your heart? From this place I cry out to You, but struggled for so so long; just trying to be heard. Your love makes it stronger, but sometimes still so broken. Does the rhythm ever get You to move, or does the erratic beat; keep Your love wondering? I feel You, but the real question; are You feeling me?
Here is my heart, make me an instrument; but not to be played with. The beat is steady, may it connect with You; on a higher, a deeper level. Your love has unlocked the song within, let my soul forever sing; sing of Your amazing love. May it be a sweet melody, an everlasting love song. Let my heart, and Your love sing forever; in a true love harmony. Your love has touched the right key, Your love is forever the song. So come, come and be center stage. Within the place, the place reserved; for You, and Your love alone. Make it a home, a home within the deepest part of my soul. Right here, right now; forever within my open heart!
I can run circles, I want to run circles around Your heart; with my one heart, wrapped completely around Your love. My heart is willing, absolutely willing and ready. To let Your love, curve my opinion; break my heart, for what breaks Yours. The circles around my eyes, are not from lack of sleep; but a heart wide awake. Up Asking his own heart questions, Seeking; what forever gave the answer. To be closer to the true heart of love, you must forever Knock; on the heart of the One, who holds the circle of life!
The circular object on my hand, means much more; than just a piece of gold around the finger. It should forever symbolise, a heart truly committed. A heart choosing not to just commit, but be truly devoted; to a forever love. You live, you die, but within the circle; you discover the true meaning of love. This one thing have I discovered, the love within my heart; will never die. My heart was created, predestined; to be forever, forever Yours. Your love, my heart; has come full circle. The place where my love starts, is the same place where Your love begins; the center of my heart!
I once was a child, but it’s Your love; that has turned me into a man. A man no longer content, play ring around the roses. A man trying to truly wear his heart on his sleeve, and despite the noticeable ring around the collar. Loving You, will never be a dirty word; within my heart. Your love is the ring, the love I wear around my heart; the love forever married to my soul. The wheels on the bus goes round and round… in circles. Your love has my heart spinning… in circles, but it’s my love; that will forever revolve around Your heart!
So please forgive me, if my mind starts circling the wagon. Your love truly speaks into my heart, but sometimes the mind; gets lost within the busyness of the day. Wax on, wax off; can teach a heart how to move in a true circular motion. But it Your love, that has changed the direction of my heart; it’s moving deeper. So therefore, how could Your love; ever wax cold. Your love is the light, the candle that will forever burn bright. A precious love, the love encompassing; the love around, within, hovering. The circumference of my heart, that’s what it; Circles!
Good, good Father, You have been so good. Before we ever took a breath, before we even knew what it was; to truly breathe. Your love was, Your love is; the living breath within our heart. Even when our love was a foe, Your love still fought for us. Even when our love spoke against Your heart, You still spoke so much love; into our hearts. Even when our hearts couldn’t sing, Your love was the song; the love song that sang over our soul. A love so Kind, a love Never-ending; a love truly Undying. A love that will never stop caring, for our hearts; How He Loves!
When we were unworthy, You loved. When we, were distant; You loved, to be so close. You loved us deeply, a love that we can never repay; a love that paid it all. A love that leaves the ninety-nine, just to pursue one heart. No mountain You won’t climb, no wall You won’t kick down. No lie of the enemy, You won’t tear down. No valley You won’t enter, no shadow Your love won’t light up; in pursuit of our soul. Your heart calls, Your love knows our names. From our mother’s womb, we have been chosen; predestined, How deep Your love goes!
There’s no greater love than this, and it’s so Beautiful. A love that sets our soul forever free, a love that leaves our heart forever in awe. There’s nothing to do to earn it, we don’t truly deserve it. The truly overwhelming part, He had to die; just so we could even get to know it. You gave Yourself away, with outstretched arms; You showed us Your heart. How absolutely Ridiculous, how utterly Reckless. But that’s the Awesome love of God, How He loves!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” John 3:16-17 ESV
