Living, in You!

The height, the length, the breadth; a love that exceeds the imagination. Expand the mind, expand the heart; expand the soul. Increased hope, increased faith, increased depth; to the true understanding. Stretch the heart, stretch the soul; stretch futile thinking. A heart not knowing, a soul; not experiencing. Eyes can’t see, ears cannot hear; an infinite love, beyond breathless. Through every heartbeat, how the soul truly comprehends; the move… in, every breath. A heart flexible to be moved, a soul elasticized to know; resilience in the everlasting breath. A mind not willing to bend, to the power of others will. A heart that won’t adjust truth, to fit what others believe. Leaving the heart and soul vulnerable; to a mind easily deceived!

When the breadth pushes up against my soul, it’s not the push back; but the breathe deeply. In my soul, my heart will boldly carry the love; and display the resounding beauty. For You, by You, in You; through You, true living. Within the refuge, the sanctuary. Under the canopy, the hiding place. Living in grace, living in the deepest place. Living, seeing, believing, knowing, trusting. Training the mind and body, readying the heart and soul. For the speaking, the hearing, the listening; said underneath every breath. In being, in stillness, in You; where love abides. Life, meant to be lived with meaning. A heart beating, knowing the true purpose; the soul Living, In You!

A Story; Closer, to Your Heart!

I didn’t realize, that your heart wasn’t tightly; pressed up against my soul. I vowed, to keep it close. Never let your love not be, what forever moves my heart. You must surely know, and completely understand; I was busy, “trying to keep up with the Jones.” You see, it’s really not my fault; even though you had to watch from a distance, our hearts drifting apart. Okay, it absolutely was, me, myself, I… did leave you waiting. Looking, longing, wanting; to be closer. We were already close, and I knew your love was there, hovering; trying to get my attention. I didn’t notice, the distance between my every breath… a chasm. Hello, how truly profound… ly insensitive. How could I have not noticed; my heart on its own life support? The breadth of your love, so few and far between. A soul gasping, fluttering; for the love. That became my every breath, and water for my soul!

A heart disconnected, the soul needing to be reconnected. To the power source, where I find so much strength; through an undying love. My soul wasn’t feeling your heart beat, within my soul as it once did. Just a heart, feeling beaten. I try to listen, but I didn’t hear your voice. The small, the quiet whisper. My soul needed to be still, but my heart was speaking; when it should have been listening. I was looking for love, but there was this one tree; in the wilderness of my soul. Even though my soul, could recognize your voice from all the rest. So many voices surrounded my heart, crowding your heartbeat. Oh me, oh my heart; cry out… louder. Oh heart, stop; listen intensely. But at last, my soul went quiet; retreated back into the silent river. “Que Sera, Sera; what will be, will be.” A heart overwhelmed, a soul wondering; would ever be again?

A heart that ended up, wandering down memory lane. A soul now on a journey, through the heart of the lily of the valley. Showing the wonderful moments shared, and how the love was forever the guiding light. A heart, the soul, a want, the need; your love, the song… in the dark. The lonely river, slowly became the unfamiliar place. Over the years, my heart had spent so much time; living in an ocean of love. Deeply was the water, the love so refreshing, and each wave of deep eMotion. A heart knowing, such a gentle stream of love. A love running forever down, into depth of soul. The rain fell, the pouring out; into the everlasting reign. What was my soul to do, but let it be… dear, Lord. Let it be, back to the drawing. No dragging, no kicking; just a heart screaming, broken. It was the move, closer… than ever. A move to find, stepping out to be found; profoundly moved, in heart and soul!

A heart no longer adrift, in my silent river. A heart now back on the path, a soul no longer feeling so broken. A heart, realizing; a mistaken identity, will never change God’s love. When I thought, just give up… the faith; “His love said never, I will give up… your heart.” Patiently You waited, but the distance between widening; then your relentless pursuit. Why now, the love so much deeper. I see the love, through the lens of your heart; not just a one sided viewpoint. A renewed perspective, your love being the true vantage point. Never again will I allow, even a degree of separation; keep me from pursuing your heart. Forgive me, when I feel I’m making your heart seem unloved. To know the true depth of your love, in me; and my heart’s true worth, to You? It will be the forever seek after. The run down, the endless chase; and be a man after… your heart. I will always move to you, my soul will only stop at the moment. When You have my every breath, and my soul close enough to know; your love has stopped moving. My heart has become so relentless; trying to get Closer, to Your heart!

– I wrote this about six years ago, when my heart reflected on a moment lived a few years before. May it be an encouragement for your heart, to know it doesn’t matter what you’re going through. God’s love will never leave you where you are, but relentlessly pursue the heart, of those who truly want to know His heart!

Listening!

Words spoken, but hearts; not ready to acknowledge the truth. A presence is moving, but yet; so many hearts not seeing? So much is happening, but many not perceiving. So much is said, under the quiet; but so many hearts; not yet open… to the receiving? Ears are hearing, eyes are seeing; but the heart pretending. Hark! Who goes there? So many think, this is a time within to play. Not realizing, it’s time to Harken. Sound off, one, two. There’s always a sound, that precedes a move… of God; what hearts must concede. So many hang up their hopes, on the evidently. Instead of forever resting their hearts, on the evidence in plain sight… for all to see. So many take notice of, but the heart not yet ready to act on. Action is truly required, if change is ever to take place… within. No point of listening, if the heart doesn’t see the need; to respond to what is being heard. Nevertheless, there is a move. The question is this, is the heart willing to be moved; by each gentle whisper? Words are spoken, but the heart has to be… Listening. Shh, quiet your heart. Listen, can you hear; in the midst, God is speaking? In His love, your heart will be… okay!

Father, even though uncertainty comes to the day; let the confusion never be… that You still reign. Your love is in words, in You hope is the word; a heart needs to know. Speak, let hearts know; in You freedom reigns every day. Let us not miss the moment, to what is said; when You whisper into the stillness. When the doubts soar, souls are overwhelmed. Help every heartbeat to believe, in You there’s life; in You hearts will conquer… the unknown. Father, when words are lost; may peace be still, be found. Hope in the storm, a song in the night. May we trust in You the Unseen, to find safety; when all seems lost… in the See. Help us to listen, when Your heart speaks. Your love is the first, the last; will always be the safest place. When the world don’t seem to know, where to turn? You know just what we need, know what we can’t see. Every season has a moment, and every moment just a season. Bring us to a higher place, take us into a deeper love; into a heart, so Renowned!

Never-the-Less!

So many find ways to give less, but that’s not my heart. My love will never be perfect, but will always be faithful. These days, so many call themselves a daredevil; but yet, don’t dare be different. So many say they know fearless, but more, or less; you still need the add-in, the element of faith. Conquering fear, not about the battles fought. How many won, or lost; but all the lessons learned. You don’t have to be a gallant knight, to know how to fight off the unknown. Some wars, are not just physical. Knowing how to fight, shadows in the night, is not about having the right skills; but the right kind of faith. Knowing a fearless trust, in whom true power is found. A heart knowing the power, that will skillfully wield; the tool… within the chest!

They say, less is more; but, not when more truly needs to be said. My heart doesn’t try to just write down, but capture the words; whispered within the soul. A heart trying to explain, a love unexplainable. Words are not at a loss, but sometimes it’s a heart; lost in words. Why, my heart can never write less than; what’s put in my heart to say. My soul doesn’t have to wonder how to interpret it, just faithfully be a heart willing; to write down the words within. Say Who it’s about, and let the story tell the Why; Never-the Less!

How can a heart convey whispers of love, spoken within a soul; without first knowing Speechless? How can a heart experience, lost for words; without knowing where words are first formed? To be emotionally moved, could never truly be by just an emotional thought; but a heart knowing true emotions. A heart moved to tears, but a soul knowing overwhelmed… always. Tears running down, the soul pouring out; the heart chasing after… forever. Most days, the choice I have to make is Sleepless; but never a soul feeling Restless. Sometimes, my heart is left Speechless. So many times, a soul experiencing a love called Breathless. Never a day, will my soul know a moment named Faithless. Every day, will be a heart knowing nothing Less; than the Relentless pursuit. The choice to absolutely love more, Never-the-Less!

By Your Side!

Beloved, when you think my love is too far to touch? When you think I’ve left you, and you feel so alone. You’re never too far, that my love can’t know your heart. When you feel I’ve put your love up on a cold, dusty shelf. Just know, when your heart settles. You will truly see, my love has your heart… up on my pedestal. When you breathe, know when my love moves… between every breath. When you feel you’re alone, walking in the dark; stretch out your faith, to take hold of my love. My beloved, when your light shines; you make my heart glow. As far as the East, is from the West. No amount of distance, will make your love; not touch my heart. I know you better, than you truly know your own heart. Don’t think, that I will ever let you down. I will never ignore your soul, while loving on your heart. When you’re down on your knees, my love can’t help but to hover; listening to every breath. I see when your tears, are all bottled up… inside. Whenever you cry, my heart draws near. Hush, dry your eyes; take comfort in my love!

When your heart ties, to get ahead of tomorrow. Just know, today will be the moment; to be embraced in our togetherness. When the days are overwhelmed, and your soul needs a whisper in the dark. My love, is the song in the night. I tell you, my beloved. My love will always be what’s right, when everything else seems so wrong. Only if your heart could always see endless, then your soul would truly know; the unseen depth of my love. Yes, then you would forever see. How much your heart is forever at home, within my love. When the days are cold, let my love be… all the warmth you need. Your love is held so close, tightly up against the breadth my heart. No one, my beloved I tell you absolutely no one; can ever extract your love, from my heart. Though you can only see, from the outside in, and the love seems a bit unclear. Just know this, when your heart can see beyond the shadows. You will truly see how deeply, I’ve been loving you!

Beloved, when you stop to think; that’s when your heart can’t see, I’m still by your side. Take a moment to just feel, your heart will notice the love; emanating from my presence. When your heart feelings lost, and you don’t know if you will find a way back… to my heart? Rest a moment, stay right where you are; my love knows how to find you. Don’t be scared, take your heart; put it in the care of my love. Let me show your heart, my love is so much deeper than you know. Oh my beloved, you may not always feel it; I have you by the heart. When you can’t see my love, look deep into your soul; our hearts are forever one. Your Father’s Love, is Forever… by Your Side!

A Message; The Cling!

Hearts tossing and turning, souls gripped by fear… of the unknown. Underneath every breath, under the quiet; uncertainty looms. Hearts realizing the fragile state, a world broken. Hearts that haven’t yet found, the one thing they can cling to. My heart is not ashamed, to tell the whole world; I’m extra… clingy, you can read all about it. About a soul extra needy, a heart still hanging… on every word. No static, just the Cling; to the fragrance, of this gentle love. Even when words are not said, the love… everything; a heart will ever need. A whisper in the dark, a song in the night. With every tumble… out of bed, dry bones feel so refreshed. A soul clinging to the vine, a heart dialing into the main line. Love on the mind, the soul calling; to a heart so Divine!

Friends, I can talk about what I face, or what we all face in our everyday. My heart is intentional, we all should be intentional; to focus on what truly matters. The Cling, to the Divine. In these uncertain times, we can truly see; it’s a small world after all. Fear, and anxiety; has taken hold of so many hearts. Many are trying, to take hold of tomorrow. Forgetting to acknowledge, who holds every single tomorrow. When a soul doesn’t truly know, on what to cling? The default setting of a wayward heart, cling to everything. But, when we truly know how to be still. In the stillness, where the soul forever finds peace. To help the mind see beyond the fear, past the darkest shadows. Push through the doubts, to touch the heart of God. It’s in that place, your soul will know to cling tight. To never let go, of His faithful love. Don’t clutch to what you believe, is the last bit of Grace; that can be found. Don’t believe the lies, that you have to stockpile Mercy; because tomorrow your heart may not find any more. When you trust God’s love, every new morning; more you shall surely find. Don’t let your soul relent, faithful seek His heart. Let His love cuddle you, let your soul snuggle up in the warmth. Let your heart find a safe place, find your forever rest. In the midst, you WILL find Him… there!

The Thrill, of The Chase!

If my love ever lost sight, got too far from Your heart. It would truly be the forever seek, the get back to the relentless chase… after Your heart. It doesn’t matter for how long, the distance my soul would have to journey. It’s an endless pursuit, until the end of my days. The world would come to an end, but even in death; the chase will never be over. My soul will chase after Your love, within my forever rest. The story is not about a man, and the chasing after love; but being a man after… a heart. I’m not looking to just capture, but to be forever captured… by the love!

Forever captivated, unapologetically smitten; with the love inside the heart, that I won’t stop chasing after. Many have tried, to get in my way, tried to trip up my soul; but they have all come to see. You can’t stop a heart, with an undeniable focus; chasing after such an unbelievable heart. A thirty five year chase, and with every new day; the chase is just as thrilling. A love that thrills, a love that fills… both heart and soul. This love chases away all my fears, and every single shadow that tries; to cast even a smidgin doubt. I’ve been through the valley, but the love has never stopped hovering… over my soul. The chase will surely let my soul embrace, the thrill of victory; and never let my heart endure, the agony of defeat. My affections, the passion, the desire. For the Thrill of The Chase, to never come to an end!
