“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. A people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness, into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9 ESV
In the early days, I was never the type of person; to pour out my heart. I’ve always known exactly how I felt, but to verbalize it. Much less to express it in the written text, would have been the words; my heart would have desperately searched to find. I can now tell many stories, I can easily write ten thousand poems. But it still wouldn’t be enough, to encapsulate the love within. A silent river, being affected by an ocean of love; now Pouring out his heart. A soul on a journey to express in a million different ways, what this love has truly meant. I haven’t even begun, to POUR out what’s in my heart. Would anyone truly believe, that I’m speechless; but yet never lost for words?
Is there a way to show the passion, is there a way to show what’s in a heart; without Pouring out the love within? Can I be truly expressive, but still have you begin to imagine? Can I write clearly, but still have you begin to truly understand? What I write are just words, it will never truly describe the breadth. So, is there a way for me to express my heart; without Pouring out in words, the love within? This is my desire, this has become a beautiful exchange; to share my heart. But also do my very best, to explain the love within. So I will continue to POUR out my heart, until every drop is gone!
They say it’s in the details, the details for me will forever be defined; by how much of my soul, I’m truly willing to POUR out on God’s heart. Maybe someday, I can be defined as; a man after God’s own heart. A desire, that would be a truly defining moment. Until then, I will relentlessly chase; try to POUR out every bit of my heart. I can define this love in detail, I can even define it in many different ways. But God’s love, is all I will forever need; to truly define my heart!
When you’re going through the rough times, even when your heart is living in the good times; get down on it. I’ve spent many nights wondering, spent many days pondering; what should I do? So many times I told myself, God will see me through. My heart believed it, my soul even knew Faith was the Substance. Using Hope to steady the heart, that’s what you do. Music was a real source of healing, my soul would endlessly dance; like David danced. When God’s love truly got a hold of my heart, tears started to flow; joy down in my soul. All my heart wanted to do, get down on it!
It doesn’t matter, how many people think you’re crazy. It doesn’t matter, how strong the haters may seem. God is sovereign strong; even Goliath, had to fall. God will use your enemies as your foot stool; every day, get down on it. Even if you’re walking through the valley, there’s no need to be scared. Never let your heart be a slave to fear, shadows; will never bring death. God is the life, the love, the light; that shines the brightest within the darkness. Let His love hold your every breath. Let your life start, and end with Him; get down on it!
Sound moves the spirit, praise and worship stirs up God’s love. When a heart sings of God’s love, it will move God’s heart. My heart has come to trust in God’s love a long time ago, not because I had abundant faith; but a strong belief, that I will forever need God’s love. Not just to survive within the shadows, but thrive; while going through the valley. Like most of us, my life has been filled with anger; lots of disappointments. But you couldn’t pay me a million dollars, to abandon the idea; of true hope. I could have never made it to this point, within the journey called life. Without God’s love, guiding my heart through the wilderness; giving my sometimes weary soul, true joy and rest. So friends, Get Down On It; but Stay Down on it, until you get your breakthrough!
“Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us; from the evil one.” Matthew 6:9-13 NLT
World, when I was yours; so many times I got hurt. You made it seem, that there would never be another love; but now I know better. You had me fooled, you were just playing games with my heart. I couldn’t even tell you what I was thinking, much less to describe what I was feeling; what I thought was love, was a masquerade. Who did you truly think you were, playing with my heart? The appeal started to wear off, with your kind of love; I always found my heart hurt, not anymore. So I searched my heart, took a look deep down within. To find out what was truly going on, within my soul? World, with you I got hurt; that’s why I needed another lover!
Near the end of our love affair, you started to act kinda strange. World, you must have known; felt that my heart belonged to another? But you tried, you tried to persuade; you even tried to manipulate. Young and naive, but I still knew; another love had a hold of my heart. I thought, world, I thought I was in love with you. My love for you was faithful, but it turned out to be blind faith. World the day came, when I finally realized; that I needed more than just eyes to see. What I needed was the will to trust, with the faith to truly believe. That our toxic relationship, would someday end up being a disastrous love affair. I’ve been hurt, but not anymore!
Deep down, I’m sure you knew; my heart was forever promised to another. Thirty four years later, the love has only gotten better; the love story my heart now gets to write. The weight of the world, some days it‘s a heavy heart; but the weight was never meant, to be mine to bear alone. Everyday it’s a look within, learning how to feel a deeper kind of love. I’m going to tell, going to tell you world; how I got hurt, and who forever has my heart and soul. My heart doesn’t desire silver or gold, neither all the riches in the world. I truly tried to love you, but most days world; you still left me feeling lonely, longing for the true meaning of love. World, you played with my heart; so it’s bye bye bye, to you I forever say no. World with you I’ve been hurt, but not anymore. My heart belongs to another; the lover of my soul.
When you’re lost, when the teardrops blinds your heart; keep your eyes. When the feeling isn’t fuzzy, when the vision of love is a bit hazy; keep your eyes. When your heart wants to see a perfect picture of love, but what you see seems so blurry; you can’t even recognize a true masterpiece. Even with all your flaws, you’re still a perfect reflection; of the creators amazing love, keep your faith. You don’t need eyes to see, just faith to believe; keep your eyes!
When everything seems fragile, when every step feels like glass. A broken prospective, can still be glass half full; keep your eyes. It’s not always easy feeling loved, wanting to show love when you’re hurting; not easy. Underneath the skin, beyond all that lies between. Within the heart, deep down within the soul; true beauty lies. Going above and beyond, to show a genuine kind of love; leaves a lasting impression, keep your eyes!
When you can’t see no signs, that the sun even exist. When you’re lost within the dark, there’s a light that shines; to show your heart a way home. When you feel burned out, when you can’t even see a flicker; there a light of hope. Within the valley of shadows, grace abounds. Sinner or Saint, what forever stays the same; we’re still only human. It’s Jesus’ love, that picks up the pieces; left shattered from a broken world. Jesus says, Keep Your Eyes; On Me!
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor, has come. ” Luke 4:18-19 NLT
My eyes are preparing to see a new year, but as for me and my heart; it’s another opportunity, to celebrate My God. Through the years, His love has brought my heart through many ups and downs. My soul has journeyed, finding His love; has been the journey. 2018 marks my fiftieth year, but it truly feels; the journey has just begun. For me, the strength of God’s love began; not when I was at my weakest. But when my heart forever knew, how to celebrate His greatness. The Savior of the world, the giver of salvation; My God. His love is the place my heart goes, when I need to hide from the rain. The place my soul resides, when the rain becomes a storm. My heart is kept within the valley; a love that is my provider, protector. A love that has become, my favorite hiding place; My God is!
My God is a way maker, a miracle worker, a promise keeper; the light in the darkness, that’s who My God is. My God wipes away every tear, mends broken hearts; a love that meets your every need. His love touches every life, a love that turns lives around; My God is the answer to it all. His love touches my heart, forever nestled up against my soul. A love working within my life, that’s My God. The world can shout down my beliefs; but they can never silence my heart, or disparage my soul. Because My God is awesome, His love forever reigns. He is great, and He should be greatly praised. He deserves my Hallelujah; My God!
“You are my God, and I will praise you! You are my God, and I will exalt you! Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.” Psalms 118:28-29 NLT
Now, now is the day; today is the new. We are approaching a new year, but let’s not forget; today is also a new day. Celebrate, that you got to see a new; celebrate each and every, celebrate the new. Today is the day, to see the new; to see a new thing. Let your heart see, let your heart, behold; God is doing a new thing. Embrace today as a new, no need to wait; for a new year!
Make a resolution within your heart, that you will allow your soul to forever embrace; the new. God is ready to do, something new. See the new day in a different light, open up your heart each day; the new has already begun. You may not always see, you may not always want. But in order to move mountains, you always need to believe!
There’s a path through the chaos, can your faith truly see? That there‘s a river, within the desert; of every parched soul. Now, now is the day; today is the new. Awaken your heart, stretch, work out, exercise; your faith, and beliefs. Clothe yourself within the new, walk on faith; God’s love will be the path, to show you the way!
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 NLT
