Life; the journey. To some it’s all about moving on up, to the east side. Some like to call their life, a west side story; but still a journey, every heart needs to take. Every One wants to get to the top of the mountain, but along the way; there are valleys. Where the heart of a warrior needs to come alive, to slay a Goliath. Life is taken One day at a time, One step at a time. A press through, a push pass; the shadows. Pressing on… the upward way, should forever be One direction; vertical. The journey can never be taken lying down, you have to take a stand; every day. You may only get, that One moment… in time. Yes, some days it’s One step forward, only to do the two step; trying to avoid the past. Some days the walk is a long winding road, some days the path is paved; but every day, choose to still enjoy the journey!
We only get One life, we live, we breathe; as we try to enjoy every moment. So, live it; One heartbeat at a time. One heart, One mind, One soul; it’s One place, within. Life is short, and we only get One story to tell; live it well. Let your heart dream, as far as the east is from the west. Everyday count your blessings, don’t just stop on the Number One. We all get more than just One day, every single day we get; is a true blessing. So therefore, let’s live as One; let’s truly be as One. Let the passion be for One another. Let it be unbridled… compassion; not just uncontrolled ambitions… for self. This I write, not just to encourage; but to inspire… all to truly represent, The One, who holds our tomorrow!
The horizon, the perspective, the outlook; how a heart sets the hope. With faith as the compass, the love within as the rudder; what forever guides. Hope, the wind within your sails; taking your heart into a brighter tomorrow. When the rudder seems broken, and hope a bit tattered; don’t let your soul drift off course. When the darkness beats against your soul, and waves of emotions tries to capsize the heart; don’t let your soul get lost within the darkness!
We all have a destination, knowing how to navigate the heart; will indicate that you don’t just trust, in your own abilities. Every day a soul should set sail, to discover, to rediscover; a love that blows the mind. The scope, on how a soul truly discovers? It’s when the heart truly knows how rediscover; the true length and breadth, of God’s love. Set your heart on things above, but don’t ever let your heart get shipwrecked; heavenly minded, but no earthly good. Going up yonder, not so much about the place; but the journey. The here and now, where the heart truly learns; how to broaden the horizon!
PUT, LAY, STAND; Put your trust, Lay your burdens, Stand on the promises. How you should set your hope, a heart forever fixed on a love; beyond the moon and the stars. Write a story, but let God rewrite your story; every chapter, every verse. Let His love be the story, etched upon your heart; echoing within your soul. Choose wisely, but know how to be led. Make good decisions, even when the horizon seems unclear. Each dawn chart your path, set sail; but first Set your Hope, forever on God’s love!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:3-4 ESV
He is faithful, He is our faithful father. His love is the truth, the light; the love shining within the darkness. His love is the only firm foundation, on what my anchor holds; all others, His love removed. The storms of life may collide, and the battles may be fierce. What anchors my soul, His love; my heart holds on to every word. We fight battles, yes; but we have Emmanuel (God with us). Jesus our defender, His love; already won the war, He’s never lost a battle. The same power, that crushed the enemy. That same power, lives within us. A love that moves, who are you mountain; when there’s a faith that moves?
Hell was overpowered, death no longer has a sting. The grave, conquered by the Savior; the risen King. We too can now overcome, if we let the light shine. Shine forever, like the Risen Son. So rise up each day, be unafraid; to shine bright. Then do it again, ten thousand times. Let your fear rise above the waves, rise even within brokenness. You can rise out of the ashes, beauty for ashes; what a beautiful exchange. Just breathe, within every new day. Within a love risen, a love forever glorified. Let the doubts, be just shadows; you no longer fear!
Victory is here, victory belongs to Jesus. Victory is ours; here, now. So therefore I anchor my Hallelujah. A love that deserves my best, my life, my song. My every breath, my everything; my all; nothing less. So clap your hands, give a great shout; what’s your Jericho. Shout with the voice of triumph, forever with the sound of jubilee; let your heart sing. Let the world hear, let the humanity see; hope lives in you. Shine, let the light within shine. Let the darkness know, the light lives within. Jesus is alive, resurrection power; is alive in you. And at the very end, at the end of days; we win, Whoo!
Grace, you show such love; more love than a heart truly deserves. Billions of hearts have experienced, but not can articulate; how truly amazing. A love undeserved, but my soul is forever grateful. Grace, why did you move toward me? Why does your love continue to move me, with such love unwavering love? So Grace, please tell me this? Grace, can you please answer me this? Excepting Your love, seems so simple; without even a question. What used to be the truly complicated thought, for me and my heart; why do you love me so?
Grace, Your love is a treasure; more precious than silver and gold. A love so close to my heart; so beloved, forever cherished. Grace, your love blows the mind, a heart overwhelmed by the sheer presence. Your love, bring tears to the eyes. No words, can adequately express your worth; a beauty beyond compare. A love so stunning, absolutely breathtaking; filled with so much mercy. When you found me, I was lost; broken. My eyes were wide open, but a heart so blind. The darkness that hovered over the surface of my heart was great, but Grace; Your love was so much greater!
Grace, Your love has set billions of hearts free. How my heart is forever grateful, You’ve been so faithful; a true companion for so many souls. Grace your love is powerful, strength for weakness. My trust, forever within your loving embrace; You’re the love of my life. I’ve made so many mistakes, but yet; I have You, Grace. I’m so in love, mercy; your love has forever captured my gaze!
“He is not here; He has Risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be Raised again!” Luke 24:6-7 NIV
When your heart feels like it’s in a fight, and it turns into the fight of your life. Don’t back down, even if the struggle becomes real; fight the good fight. Search your heart, find the faith within; let it bring you through the fight. Let faith fortify your heart, it’s a fight for the soul. A constant attack by the opposer, and it seems like a battle for the mind; overwhelming head shots. Some days it feels like you’re going to lose your mind. Hands up, guard your heart; trust your faith. Even if you’re on the ropes, but it feels like your back is against a wall; never give up, it’s not defeat. Hope is never lost, hope is forever found; keep the faith!
Even if the pain feels like body blows, and every time you do a gut check; your faith seems in tatters. Let hope be the rope, that will always have your back. Believe, is always the place to start. But faith still needs to be the fabric, the thread; that gives hope the strength it needs. Bob, weave, no need to worry about the scorecard; let your faithfulness, be undisputed. Let your heart float like a butterfly, death has no sting. Free your mind, steady your heart; but if your heart is feeling weary? If the fight is taking its toll, go down; on your knees. Count your blessings, find your strength; you’re about to get a breakthrough. The heart of a warrior, what keeps you in the fight!
Overwhelmed is the feeling, a heart desperately trying to breathe. Sometimes it feels like the fight is shadows; the past, just won’t let you breathe. When the past, tries to undercut your progress; it’s time for an uppercut. Don’t let the shadow box in… your heart, the past is just that; shadows. Victory becomes a reality, when the love within a heart; truly becomes undisputed. A knock down, doesn’t mean a knockout. Let sorrow, become your greatest joy; turn every tear, into a victorious cry. There’s so much beauty, when a heart rises from ashes. Within the strength of a love, fighting on your behalf; fighting for your heart. Deliver an everlasting blow, to the one trying to contend for your soul. Hands up, let the love of Jesus; fight on your behalf. Rest, this love; Undisputed!
Let the love of Jesus, leave your heart breathless; forever in awe. Hold fast, this love was tested; forty days, forty nights. Stone to bread, but the bread of life; cast away a heart of stone. A love willing to die, a heart wide open; The Greatest… Sacrifice. A love announced, in your corner; Jesus… is here. Three days, it was a hell of a fight; but who could truly contend? Jesus rose, Victorious, Glorious; His love forever the key. A love Unquestionably the greatest. Incontrovertible, Unequivocal, Irrefutable; Undeniable. The Uncontested Champion, the Defender of our heart. Christ in you, the hope of glory; step into your victory. Hallelujah, Thank You, Jesus. Your Love Reigns; Undisputed, Forevermore!
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
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!
