Re-lent!

You won’t Re-lent, even when our hearts hold back; Your love still won’t Re-lent. Our heart gets pulled in so many directions, but You won’t Re-lent; You want our hearts to be completely Yours. So demanding, a truly jealous love; Re-lentless, You want our whole heart. You don’t want this life, to ever quench the fire. So, may Your love forever be our burning desire. The passion that burns within, the love that consumes our heart. Our forever flame, the fire that completely sets our soul forever ablaze; a soul on fire. Your love won’t Re-lent, not until You forever have it all; our whole heart. Take it all, take our hearts, take our very souls; from glory to glory!

Preceding, to come before; a time to reflect. Not as a religious exercise, religion kills; the fire within. Each day is a time for growth; in a Re-lent-less pursuit, day after day. To position our souls, reposition the heart; forever centered, directly at the foot of Your love. Undistracted devotion, a heart truly devoted. Holding fast to faith, holding on to God’s unchanging love. Quality time within His presence, may our hearts forever rise; beauty from ashes. May our hearts never stop, never forget to praise The One, who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The greatest act of love, so much mercy; such boundless grace. God’s love will never abandon, He wants our whole heart. The lover of our soul, will never Re-lent!

“I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me!” Philippians‬ ‭3:10-12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Immovable!

Unmovable, the rock on whom I stand; immovable. My firm foundation, a love; that shall never be moved. Nestled up against my heart, how my soul finds rest. A love wrapped up tight around my soul, how my heart learned to breathe. Locked up immovable within my soul, the immovable love locked up forever; safe, no thief can ever break in, or steal this immovable love. A heavy heart, burdens too heavy to bear, a weight that was lifted; locked up safe, within the immovable love!

My soul is deeply rooted, riveted, immovable; forever anchored, to this unwavering love. Steadfast, the rhythm of my heart. Every single heartbeat, stead; how it goes. My heart is determined, and my soul will never be moved. A heart resolute, but unbending. Broken at times, but uncompromising; to the truth I hold dear. This immovable love, is a fortress, a strong tower. An everlasting love, The Rock; higher than I. A love, unrelenting, a love that still wants to be close; to our strong-willed hearts. A love dead set, a love willing to prove, willing to show; how great a love, immovable!

A love like a lamp post, always there; to shine within the darkness. Shining ever so bright, a light no shadow can ever deny. The lighthouse; fixed, forever secure. A beacon of hope, when a heart is lost; when the fog is life, the journey. Stability for your heart, when the shadows overwhelms the soul. Find safety upon the rock, within the cliffs. Stand upon the firm foundation, be unmovable; forevermore. Let your gaze be forever, let your love be unyielding; immovable. Be a heart restrained, but a soul forever moved. A love reserved, but a heart relentless. Give chase, but be immovable. Anchor your soul to the unshifting, the never changing; the solid rock, the immovable love!

Fun Friday; The Henry Infusion!

Dear Henry, we’ve been together for such a long time. But lately it seems the distance between, is overcome by the miles. You told me that you would always be there, to catch my tears. It’s breaking my heart to see the tears fall, sometimes an endless rain. You said you would be there; always, forever. But there’s a hole, my heart sees through; what seems to be a bucket, of empty promises. Oh Henry, your love was so sweet; caramel, I so enjoyed the softer side. But it seems I’m the one a bit nutty, did I truly bite off; more than I could chew? Was the sweetness you have shown, just chocolate covered lies? Oh Henry, you’re still my candy love; say it isn’t so!

Dear Liza, I’m still nuts, crazy; my heart is still sweet on you. Yes, I did promise; that I would never let your tears fall. Liza, you know that I’ve done my best; to catch your every tear. But the years, the distractions; the toll… on the highway; it has cost us so much. Forgive me, I didn’t realize; there’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza. For me, it’s not about the hole; but the bucket… list of things, I have to accomplish. But I can fix this, my job is to fix… things. Oh, I still believe; that I‘m a mister fix it. Liza, don’t think that I’m just a handy man; your honey do… list, never ends. Liza, I absolutely know I can fix the hole; in your heart… too. But the question is this, dear Liza; can I fix the bucket, “before the next teardrop falls?”

Then fix it, dear Henry; dear Henry, then please fix this. Liza I’ve tried, so many times to fix it; but they were just band-aid fixes. I didn’t realize, you would shed so many tears; why does it rain so much? I realize now, a band-aid doesn’t stop a bleeding heart. The moments I think all is well, done; another hole. The miles, oh the list; I’m overcome, because you think it’s just another… drop in the bucket. Henry, what you need is a straw. Yes, Henry, this is absolutely the last straw. It’s time for you to cut the straw… man, out of the equation; no more excuses? But Liza, loving you; has never been a dull moment. That last cut, was the deepest; ouch, that hurts. So herein lies the dilemma; the conundrum. If I sharpen the knife, just so I can have peace; of the last straw. Dear Liza, it troubles me; to see the tears fall, the endless rain. Your tender love, still moves my heart!

My dear Liza, the fix is in… the details; me loving you, you loving me. Oh Liza, loving you; not part of the bucket… list of things. Your love takes priority; the well being, of your heart and soul. All I’ve ever needed, it’s always been the love; of my sweet candy girl. I will build up your heart, with unwavering love. My heart is truly committed, to catch every bit of your love. Especially when the holes, the tears that falls; are from brokenness. Liza, your love is the thing I’ve always used; to plug the leaky holes, within my heart. So, until the day comes, when I finally kick the bucket; out of sheer frustration, still missing the mark. I’m a man that can sometimes struggle, to fix all the holes. But I pledge, my heart will be forever yours. To have, to hold; to catch every tear. Until our end, becomes forevermore. To tell the TRUTH, is to first be honest; with your own heart. Honest, I do; do love you. My dear Liza, your love makes my heart whole; undying, will forever be my love. Oh Henry, your warm caramel love; still the sweetest!

It’s a bit long, but there you have it; I hope you all enjoyed this infusion. Two things I enjoyed in my childhood; the story of Henry and Liza, and the Oh Henry chocolate bar. It also infused with the Quote Me word; TRUTH. Fun fact; Henry, could have been my last name; it’s my mother’s family name. She chose to give me my father’s family name, even though they never had a relationship. Have a blessed weekend everyone!

My Hallelujah!

Praise, Worship; a soul forever rejoicing, in spirit, in truth. Words of expression, affection, affirmation; hallelujah. Asking, Seeking, Knocking; undistracted devotion, for only You, oh Lord. Peace, be still; a love that be-stills my soul. Storms become the calm, a silent river; flow river flow. From glory to glory, strength to strength; the love that forever moves my soul. Hallelujah, praise to the One; who set my soul free!

A love, a song playing within my heart. Melodies of joy, melodies from heaven; a hymn for my soul. ‘Tis so sweet, to trust in Jesus; just to take Him at His Word. To rest upon His promise, just to know, “Thus saith the Lord!” Jesus, Jesus; how I trust Him. How I’ve proved Him, over and over. I’m so glad, I learned to trust Him. My Precious, my Savior; a Friend, within the quietness. Always with me, and will forever be; to the very end!

May my worship forever be, clean hands, pure heart. Praise up, walls down; a heart exposed. May my love truly be fierce, the heart of a warrior. May every single verse within my soul, be a resounding hallelujah. So take everything, anything I let come between; Your heart, my love. I don’t need it, don’t want things; in between. My passion, my desire, my love. The story within my heart, the love penned down; within the lining of my soul, what iWrite. Who is like unto You, why; I just need You. You deserve the glory, the worship; My Hallelujah, belongs to You!

Breathless!

If my heart was to dance endlessly with Your love, would endlessly; mean a heart left forever breathless?

If my soul was to only get but a glimpse into Your heart, would just a mere glimpse; take my every breath?

If I allowed my heart to be captured, with every single glance into Your love; would You ever allow a captivated heart, a chance to breathe?

If my soul gazed forever into Your heart, would what I see as forever; be enough to show me, the length and breadth of Your love?

If I couldn’t find the right words, if my heart was absolutely lost for words? If I couldn’t even express, what I was truly feeling inside? Would Your love truly be content, with no words; but a heart forever breathless?

If my heart was lost deep within Your love, would it cause You deep sorrow? Knowing my heart wasn’t breathlessly searching, desperately wanting; to be found by You?

The tears that flow, from this endless dance; cries within my soul. Every mere glimpse, by a captured heart; has become a forever gaze. The words, that once seemed lost; found within an ocean love. The words now flow from within, a once silent river. A river no longer content, living just within the silence. The mere thought of living without Your love, means not truly living. A heart on a forever journey, searching the deep; but breathless!

A Friday Story; The Amazing Day!

I woke up, it was next to you. Watched you sleep for a moment, kissed you gently, tenderly; I didn’t want to wake, a sleeping angel. So, I rolled out of bed; I had a role to play. Man, what a pleasure; to provide love for your heart. Said a prayer, got dressed; brushed my teeth second. I wanted the kiss upon my lips, to stay with me; forever and a day. Still thinking about the kiss, I slowly headed to the kitchen. With every step there was a resounding echo within my soul; love was the song upon my lips. My heart just kept humming the favorite part; I have nuff love for you!

When I got to the kitchen I had a wonderful breakfast, it was the kiss that made it much sweeter; the sugar I got from my sweet… tea. It took me a while to focus my gaze; off the kiss, and onto the newspaper. As I was checking the lottery section; I realized that we won ten million dollars. So I left the house, and went to go pick up our winnings. On the way I stopped, I had to rescue a cat stuck in a tree. Then a few more minutes down the road, there was a house on fire; with a woman screaming, please save my baby. Without giving it a second thought, I ran straight into the house; rescued the baby. I gently placed the baby into mother’s arms, she thanked me. Then lovingly hugged and kissed the baby, it was such a loving embrace. Tears, and awe; what a sight to behold, we were surrounded by guardian angels!

I finally reached the lottery office, picked up the winnings. It was more money than we would ever need, so I decided to use half of it; to help eradicate world hunger. Some were donated to charity, some used to help discover a cure for Cancer. What was left, just enough to pay the bills; what more do I truly need? Mohammad Ali heard about what was done, he invited me to his home. Thanked me and said, you’re The Greatest. I quickly stopped him, deflected; told him that I don’t hold such a title. There’s nothing great, or impressive about my heart. I looked to the heavens, pointed; to Him who is truly The Greatest. The Amazing Love, that has no contender; a heart, Undisputed!

When I got back home later that day, I kissed my wife; told her all about my day. I said, Wow; what a truly Amazing Day! All because; I WOKE UP, AND IT WAS NEXT TO YOU!!

  • The first paragraph is part of my day, the stories in the following; are things that if the opportunity presented itself, exactly how I would approach them! Life is short, it’s not what you do each day that’s makes a person; but who makes your heart, thrive!

The Dilemma!

My mind used to constantly wrestle with my heart, trying to get between my heart and soul. So, when my heart and mind had a conflict, but my soul was forever resolute; in whom was the resolution, would that be considered a dilemma? Yes, my heart was absolutely willing to do anything, for Your love. But yet a made up mind, would still at times ponder. Ask the question, is the absolute; meant truly willing to do anything? So therefore the heart and mind would forever wrestle; Anything, became the dilemma. To see whether it’s the heart, or the mind; that has the true lasting influence, over the soul!

Your love has such an influence within my soul, the true deciding factor; for any dilemma. The resolve, the tug on the heartstrings. But the mind decided it wanted the freedom to resist, so the dilemma: turned into a tug of war. The mind declared war, against the tug; the mind didn’t want strings, influencing any of the decisions. Why does the mind, always want to get in the way; of the heart? Oh, but why should there ever be a real dilemma? When the heart and mind, is absolutely nothing; without a contented soul. Your love moves the heart, but the mind was not always convinced; that it even wants to be moved, out of the way. So hence the dilemma, but my heart stood firm on the belief; that Your love would forever be the resolve!

Some days it was a knock down, but the same dragged out dilemma. Your love should have never been, what got caught in the middle. The heart wanted what it wanted, and my mind thought it was only about the needs… of the moment. Only to realize, Your love already had; My Affections. My mind was at times in the clouds, but my heart; captured by a gaze. By a heart that was the embodiment of a love, a reflection of true perfection. From the moment this love tugged on my heart strings, the battle for my heart and soul was won. For years, this love has taught my heart; that it’s not about a physical, but an ongoing spiritual battle!

So I had to train my mind, how to take every thought captive. To let my mind know, it will forever be a one sided conflict. The love within my heart and soul, Undisputed. There was a real question to be had, but it was never a true dilemma. My soul, let’s my heart make all the decisions. My heart and mind no longer has a dilemma. It was such a beautiful coming together; to behold the true beauty of this love. The day this love left my heart breathless, leaving the mind completely stunned. To know that the mind, will always be led; by the love within. This love is the forever coach for my heart, the love that instructs my mind; on how to deal with matters of the heart. No more contentious disputes, between the heart and mind. There will never again be conflict resolution initiatives. My heart and mind no longer has; The Dilemma!
