Everybody loves, but for so many; love becomes about the romanticizing. On the surface the love looks really nice, and can even say all the right things. But the love still not secure, anchored by faithfulness. People have asked me the question; “Are You The Romantic Type?” To me the question, is never a simple yes, or no. I’m a firm believer, that most hearts focus on the fall in; but forget to tell their heart the reason, to stay in. Don’t get me wrong, romance should be a part of the love experience. My heart has been known, to show romantic tendencies. In layman terms, I know what the word romantic means. But I’ve never strived to be a type… cast as anything; but faithful, in every sense of the word!
We all have the good, the bad, and at times the ugly. If people see you as a romantic, that’s okay. To me romantic, is more of a feel good word. Gestures with good intensions, but for so many hearts. It becomes more about the things you do, and from time to time; how the feeling moves the heart. The problem with that, moments like this; tends to fade in and out… of the consciousness. What should move, is not what just matters to the heart; but what can endow the soul. Why I don’t seek after romantic moment, but try my best to make the love… faithful. To me, romance is knowing how to love faithfully… day after day. The heart should definitely want, but the soul should forever pursue a need. To be faithful in love, for life; forever should be the true romance!
What can ever be more romantic, than knowing the love is forever? What can truly be a deeper love, than giving your heart to someone… forever? What can ever be more of a selfless act, than a love willing to lay down its life; so the another can live? So, as for me and my heart and soul. I’m going to gaze upon the brightest star, let the love twinkle endlessly in my heart. Watch it shimmer beautifully within my soul, and bask forever… within the stunning afterglow. When a heart loves faithfully, true love will forever be the romance. A heart that shows up, a love that shows forth; a faithful love. What the Fathers love, has instilled with my soul. A heart should never desire romance for a day, but faithful love… for a lifetime. Faithfulness, how truly Romantic!
Your love, never has to fight for my heart. Everyday my heart, what I choose to freely give. Your love is not a possession, but I will fight to have it… be my everything. Your heart, always given, with such precious love. Why my heart and soul keep it, radiant and so beautiful. I will always shine a light, and never let the love… just fade away. My love will be relentless, my heart will forever give chase. Allow my soul to always take a breath, but every exhale; never breathed out in haste. Your love, is my love; my heart, forever your heart. For you always seem to have my heart, close to your love. May you always want to rest your love, on my heart. Always want to put your love, within the care of my heart. May my heart be gentle enough. May the warmth within my love, be a fire that forever burns. I know nothing will ever separate, but it’s still up to my soul; to never let anything come between. May your love, and my heart always be in; A Forever Embrace!
They are a Marvel, and they have such strength; and they are truly a wonder. My heart has words, but yet my soul… speechless. How can any heart, not be in complete awe? How can a soul with breath, not be utterly astonished; in absolute amazement? Hope, just one word… can help explain the true wonder. Trust and believe, the way; the truth… to power. One truth can empower, the other fights… the powers that be. You can never truly have one, without needing the other. They might seem different, but they are One… in the same. You can’t get saved, without the surrender. You can’t get true strength, unless you have the power… within. You can’t believe, if you don’t know the truth. To see all the wonders at work, faith; what activates. A soul, in the shape of a heart… forever in love. To truly get from under, the struggles that keeps the heart a captive? You first have to experience the awe, and truly know how wondrous!
So much Wonder, so much Love; full of so much Compassion. Who can ever separate, take the love from my heart? Stop the Miracles, Signs and Wonder; when it’s all, part of the Beauty? They have all power, to Fix the broken hearted. To set a bound heart Free, to Save every lost soul. What can stand against, they can Never be defeated. The Power to Transform, will never be a surprise. Knowing such an Awesome, Remarkable, Undeniable love. How can any heart, not be truly Amazed? Some might think, loving the Wonder; nothing but child’s play. But that’s just it, you don’t get the understanding; without first getting a transformation… of heart. You have to first become a child, be a true believer… before you can enter in. It’s not about a cartoon, but hearts in tune. To know the Love for, is to have true Affection. It’s a two fold blessing, for a heart to have and behold. I tell you the truth, they are so Amazing; Grace, and Mercy!
Before a heart can breathe, before there is a breathtaking; it is first preceded by a move… of heart. Before a single echo is ever heard, there first have to be a sound; perceived beyond sight. Before a soul can recognize a still whisper, the heart has to first know; the breadth that moves the stillness. Most hearts can produce an echo chamber, moved by what feels good; but yet not knowing, it’s not about a good vibration. Most hearts can recognize a distinct sound, but cannot fathom the true depth… without going deeper. A move of the heart, is preceded by a feeling. What sound like real love, goes beyond just a perceived feeling. To feel love is to be moved, but to interpret why the move; not relying on just a feeling. For there to be a true understanding, a heart needs to know; what prepares the way?
A heart can beat like the sound of music, but it’s the rhythm within; that gives the soul true meaning. You don’t have to dig deep, be an intellect; for the heart to be truly enlightened. Ask, Seek, Knock; how the heart starts the introduction. But when the soul gets the answer, does it become a step forward, or a heart not yet ready… for a real commitment? For true growth to be seen within a heart, the latter years need to be better than the former. Wisdom will always be the result, with knowledge gained along the journey. But for the practical to be evident, there has to be a preceding understanding. Love is an action word, demonstrated through a Preceded action; by a heart willing to act. Before life, before sight, before sound. Before a movement over the surface of the deep, what Preceded wasn’t a sound of an explosion; but a move.. of God!
It might be just a small faith, in a sea of so much eMotion. You don’t need a boat load of hope, for a heart to stay afloat. Just the anchor, that keeps a soul from drowning. Even though the tears are an ocean, and every breath another tidal wave. Even though your hear, seems so far out into the blue. Tears, don’t mean your soul is losing. Seeing a wreak, doesn’t mean hope is lost. The mind might be closed off, just leave the heart open… to hear you are loved. May your soul find strength, in the midst of the stillness. When your heart finds the quietness, let your soul listen for a whisper… of love. May your soul know true peace, proof that you will be okay; that your heart will go on. It might be a fight, just trying to keep it together; but hope is never lost. Let love be the song, telling your soul that’s your fight song; that your heart will go on… beating!
When the tide seems to be raising, when the heart feels overwhelmed. When the feeling, is a heart in too deep. Knowing to what depth, never the problem. For a heart, that wants to love deeply. Staying submerged in a deeper love, what becomes the soul craving. A little darkness, doesn’t mean a fire isn’t burning. A little water, doesn’t mean the flame will ever stop raging. There is a voice, a song in the night. With power to let faith rise again, to turn every battle cry… into a victory. Just taking one step, one foot in front of the other. Shows you’re stronger, than you even know. Within the heart of a warrior… there a fight song. It doesn’t matter, what anyone else believes; your heart is a fighter. Even when it feels the fight within is gone, believe with heart and soul. Don’t lose heart, don’t let your soul lose sleep. You have a fight song, let God’s love sing your soul a lullaby. Shh, rest; go from strength to strength, glory to glory. You’re gonna be okay, a heart forever changed!
Fight song is a song by, Rachel Platten. We are midway into the month, and I have heard, or read about so many who are going through something. For all those fighting something, or feeling Pain because of someone? Cancer, Loss, Suicide, Chronic illness; this is dedicated to you. In this life we will have trouble, and even though we try to guard our hearts; some days it’s a fight. I pray within your heart you know, you never have to fight through it alone. God is there, in whatever becomes the overwhelming struggle!
Hearts tell me, why the hesitation; “are you waiting for the perfect moment?” They say that timing is everything, but even if you time it just right. Your heart just might miss the moment, given for your soul… to take a leap of faith; for your heart to forever jump for joy. Oh, but once you get in, the heart and soul needs to know; it’s not about the jump and shout. Don’t let your heart get bound up, don’t let your soul get tangled up; in a distracting legalistic mindset. Your heart was loosed, the soul forever set free; don’t become double minded. So many think, it’s about being good… enough. Hard work and dedication, a good desire; but it’s about the Sacrifice. A heart can be taught to bob and weave, but the mind still has to be disciplined; to truly be led… by the heart. Knowing how to make quick decisions, can help get a mind out of a jam; but the heart still needs to know, in whom to put the trust?
Don’t be scared to make a move, but don’t just rely on your own wit; know how to apply true grit. Perseverance requires true strength… of character. When in doubt, that the heart is not winning? Throw your hands in the air, and wave them like you just don’t care… who’s watching. Don’t ever let your heart lose sight, of what truly matters. Don’t let your soul get focused, on truly meaningless distractions. A Double Dutch bus, is a sight for sure. But if the focus is just on how the wheels on the bus, goes round and round. That just shows, that the mind is what’s in control. Not a heart knowing how to take the lead, and what love truly moves… the soul?
A young, vibrant heart learning the how to; can easily jump a rope. But yet still too young, to know how to properly exercise… true restraint; mind, body, and soul. Hearts in love, is eager to jump a broom. But for the love to not get tattered, not get easily broken. The love needs to be forever bound, with a three stranded cord. Every heart knows how to jump in, but the question I have is this; do you truly know how to stay in… love? Life can make the love seem, like hearts just swinging… in opposite directions. Hearts crisscrossing, but without the rhythmic cohesiveness. For two hearts to truly flourish, for the soul to truly experience a double portion blessing; the love for has to be, hearts in love… forever. No double talk, no Double Dutch; jump in, jump out. Just grateful hearts, compassionate souls; slow to anger. Hearts in tune, abounding forever… in true love!
When a heart is not in tune, it cannot differentiate between a heart that just beats; from a rhythm that truly moves. One sound, is not about just hearing a heart beat; but a soul also knowing how to see… a movement. A heart needs to have sight, to go beyond what is just sounds… good. Sometimes the tone feels good, but the heart and soul not in tune. A heart can be tone deaf, when a heart is unable to perceive. The difference between the breadth, and the true characteristics… of what is a real love. There is a certain pitch, that most heart have clearly heard. But the soul still needs to know, how to accurately interpret. Real love hums a distinct melody, but Devine love forever a song; when a heart is in tune!
The heart is an instrument, it may not always be in tune; but the tone should always be recognizable. The sound a heart makes can paint a picture, but not all with… The Color of Love. Thankfully, hearts have the ability to adjust; but only if the moment hasn’t become a missed opportunity. To not just notice the change within the mind, but to see the change take place… within the heart. One can change their mind, but without a change of heart; the love wouldn’t truly resonate. Without taking a moment to reflect, or giving the heart a chance to adapt; becomes a change without purpose. The heart and soul cannot become finely tuned, if being in tune… serves no greater purpose. A heart trying to demonstrate the love being heard, but for some the heartbeat becomes so erratic; a soul still not knowing the true depth. Love can produce a strong eMotion, but for a soul to truly sing and shout. There has to be the In Tune, to have a true heart connection!
