In a world so cold, Your love’s such an overwhelming blanket of warmth. Faith in You, the faithful protection. Within Your love, where a soul always finds the perfect peace. Every heart, needs to know the true Comforter. Especially when, the darkest days, brings with it an even bitter cold. Beyond understanding, a soul can know a love so profound. Underneath every breath, a heart can find such unbelievable Joy. A soul at rest, in deep, deep place. A place where, the love has become so embedded. The lingering feeling, moving beneath the surface. Pressing deep against the heart, the love pressed up against the longing soul. The love becoming deeply, with every breathtaking awe. So much love, breathlessness becomes every day, and every night. A heart captivated, within the loving embrace. A soul experiencing, what it truly is to get to know; the true length, width, breadth. The love, and the heart; being knitted together. So many layers of love, so how can a heart truly not… be so overwhelmed? With such a proven friend, and a love so proven; to be such an undeniable Comfort. Through the years, through every moment in time. Being completely within the love, where every soul should forever want to be. To such giving, to know forever covered. To know the truest rest, the most Amazing peace. To know a true awaken, there has to a true enlightenment. A heart and soul going deeper, lost forever in the depth of the heavenly. The Awesome love, found in the Comforter!
You don’t need to adjust you, conform to what others believe you to be. Their validation, can never confirm your worth. The Just, live by faith. So Just, be you; the best version you’re meant to be. Not Just once… a day, but always, forever. A heart that never quits, is a soul that will never stop believing. Just the gusto, catching that second wind; not what a soul truly free needs, to soar forever. Just imagine, being able to live with such vibrant wings. A soul soaring so high, above the heavens. You can be swift, and strong; endure much until the end. But question this, what place will be the finish? A thought for the heart to ponder, but be a soul living to know the true wonder. Breath, how a heart knows living; but experiencing the breadth of life, becomes a soul knowing the truth in the forever. Can you only imagine, knowing the very moment; when the true breadth of love, becomes transforming? Imagine, fear having no power… to enslave. True freedom, not of the mind; but heart and soul!
Understanding the gravity, in every situation. You have to take, every thought captive. Just Imagine, boldly face every tomorrow knowing; when you get there. Hope is anchored, by the faith you find therein. Just say, speak, and let your heart truly believe. To know, what’s more than Just a thought, beyond Just wild dreams. Imagine you, knowing being truly made. Creative, Just a part of what was meant to be; Just saying. Words, in a heart endowed with truth; by the power of three. A-Just, is knowing this. A vivid imagination can become a tainted lens, if not balanced by an enlightened love. Truth will adjust a lens, to become a justified perspective. Live with purpose, to A-Just; mind, body, soul. A soul living the reimagined, a renewed way of living. To walk each day gracefully, a heart faithfully needs to be adjusted; to live everyday vertically. Hope found daily, will rest fully on truth. Faith embedded deeply, will become peace empowered. So when unprecedented comes, no adjustment to faith will ever be needed. In God, how you forever find; A-Just!
The void a state, but the emptiness not without absence; the fullness surrounds. Breadth cannot be touched, but a presence can be felt. We can avoid this, even some of that. But yet, you can never evade; what is, and forever will be. When a void in love becomes apparent, the instinct is to bridge the gap; between heart and soul. But, without the being is within the agape. Therein, will still lie the emptiness. In a space, and in time. Where so many pin their hopes, while avoiding the truth. Space is irrelevant, when time is predicated, on the peripheral. Only a change in perspective, a connection to what is true. The change, a heart will not attempt to avoid. A barren wasteland, what becomes a soul feeling unfulfilled; lacking a substantive inner peace. The world desperately needs, what so many hearts try hard to evade. But, there’s no evading, truth with no erasing; to make a soul profoundly elated!
When you’ve found forever at rest, in that truly; there’s no more debating. No one, can ever steal your love, your joy, your hope, your peace, your faith; without you choosing to give it. When lack is wisdom, and discernment; power is therefore given, not taken. Sometimes, we’re drawn into a bad situation; thinking it will fill a vacancy. No chasm, can truly be filled. When a soul doesn’t truly understand, the purpose for breath. Someone, can call you useless; say your value worthless. But, without you giving that power over the truth. The words, are completely empty; non-binding. In life, there’s always something that can be gleaned. So, therefore; why let your soul toe, what just outlines the abyss? When your heart can know, endless the state. Even though the fall, a heart is never trapped. Love is not just an escape, it’s a soul living in the contentment; a heart knowing the bliss!
We can believe, something is invalid; but that doesn’t make the truth within, null and void. We can deny the truth of God’s love, but the promises; not rescinded. You don’t have to be a philosopher, to understand thoughts are based on a certain philosophy. Thinking nothing missing, doesn’t mean something isn’t broken. Whatever you believe to be the void, just a mind in a state. In the spirit, in the realm of being; transformed. Every void has breadth, every void can be filled; with the true meaning of love, God. You can try to avoid, but there’s no way to evade. In the end, there will be the Cross, the Road. No Sway, Jesus is the only Way; to fill the void!
Though the night, though the day be a heart troubled. In the tossing, the turning; may peace be, in the stillness… of thy soul. The see, will never be the problem. When you let faith be the answer, in God’s love the anchor. Even though the struggle, is the reality. The wayward wrestle, between heart and soul. Even when you feel wounded, weary from all the battles. Just remember, it’s always darkest, before the dawn. Time, being in the Son; what heals the wounds, trying to leave you scared… for life. Troubled, doesn’t have to be called despair. Trials, they come to make your resolve even stronger. Tears, don’t mean losing. God is well able, to strengthen you. Press deeper into His love, and then press on. A heart shaken, but a soul stirred; to keep going, through what may… be still crushing. Never give up, never give in. Endure, until the end; and rise triumphant. Hold on to your faith, and against all odds; Stand!
In the middle of the storm, God is… still faithful. Every day, let your hope rise, high above the dark clouds. You don’t need to know, which way the wind may blow. You will soar even higher, when you let God’s love be; the wind beneath your wings. Above what you see, there’s a new horizon. Raise a hallelujah, make worship a lifestyle. Turn a darkened morning, into dancing. When the heart is heavy, pondering how to face a crossroad? Jesus, will show your heart the way. If you dare, to trust His love. Even if, your world is feeling shattered? Hope in God, finds a place called gracefully, within what’s broken. Rise with the day, rise up on a prayer; and you will be able, to ride out the rising tide. Dream dreams, but have a vision; the coming Son, piercing the sky. Restful, not in laying the head down; but knowing, where to lay all your burdens? At the foot of the cross, bow your head low; then Rise… forever, with the Lord!
Pull it down, pull every single one down. Every weapon, every stronghold; pull them all down. Lay your burdens down, not your soul to be trampled on. Don’t give in to the culture, what is normalized. It’s time to realize, behind every scheme; there’s a plot, meant to become your grave. The thief has plans, but God has His plan; to Not let you be destroyed. You were made, to bind; not be bound. Weapons are formed, but You are Made; in the image of God. Weird the sword, in the name of Jesus. That’s how, Generational chains are broken. Tear it down, the veil; pull it all down. Don’t let anything blind your heart, from seeing the truth. The fight, is for the soul; the next generation. No one, has the power to nullify; void your worth. Even if, you gave it away; Take It Back. All power is given, not taken. Whatever you continually wrestle with, whatever roots you need to pull up? Don’t hesitate, the time is now. Anyone, or anything that has a hold over you? Jesus’ name, it Will be Cancelled!
Though the struggle is real, and the battles are fierce. Speak life, over every circumstance. Your health might be failing, but don’t let your resolve; ever be a heart knowing defeated. Cracks in your armor, doesn’t mean your soul is losing. When you can see in the spirit, that every opposition has already been cancelled. Your soul shall surely live, in the peace. The cracks, the attacks; just distractions, to get you off track. Just remember this simple fact, that when you boldly act; a conquering spirit, becomes the knack. Don’t ever throw a quiver, pull an arrow out of your emboldened quiver; and aim your arrow high. In the natural, the blood is under the flesh. But in the spirit, the flesh forever thrives; under the blood… Whatever comes, trying to steal your destiny? God wants me to tell you, it’s Cancelled. Declare, Proclaim; Receive, your victory. Pull it down, and every day; keep Pulling it Down!
Still, always, forever; my first love, that will never change. Hell, death has no hold. Your love called to my heart, and my soul ran out of my grave cloths. Your love is still the anchor, my soul securely tethered to. Your love did what no other would, fought to show that my heart had worth. You won my heart, You have my soul. Your love is my song, every lyric, every verse; it makes my heart sing. Your heart is the light, shines like a lighthouse. It’s what guides my soul, through the darkest nights. It’s my strong tower, the only fortress my heart has ever known; a refuge in the storm. My greatest joy, what it’s always been. Lover, oh my soul; still yearn to know Your heart. Heart to heart, that’s the encounter; for my soul to taste the sweetest love. Your love is the fire, the flame upon my heart. The love still burns deep, my soul is forever set ablaze. The beautiful exchange, so beautiful a transformation; what You’ve made out of my soul. Breathless, what You’ve made my heart… become. My heart truly adores You, every breath I have… it’s yours. Nobody else, will ever get me, get this; My First Love, it’s You… Abba!
When I talk about first love, for me that’s literal. I grow up, without knowing a true earthly father’s love. Even though, I was an only child; I never had a close loving relationship with my mother ether. I was the first born for my father, but he didn’t embrace the daddy role. My mother had left me in the Caribbean at about age four, to build a new life for us in another country. Off and on, I was able to visit my father. At age six, he put me on a plane; never to inquire about me again. For the next twenty years, we only had one encounter. When I was sixteen, my mother planned a trip to the Caribbean. When I was reunited with my mother, and because she was a single mother; she enrolled me in a boarding school/home. I lived there, from age six to ten. Even though, we could go visit on the weekends; my mother didn’t drive. So therefore, I didn’t always get the chance, for the change of scenery. Fast forward to being married, I wanted my father to know his grandkids. I heard he was in the U.S visiting, so I took my eight year old son at the time on a plane; to go meet his granddad. Eventually, he also got a chance to me the entire family. He’s now in his seventies, with failing health. And the one child, he hesitated to lay claim to, is the only one he has a relationship with now; to help defray some of the health cost!
Maybe, that helped drive my heart; deep into an introverted silent river, where my heart spent many years. My heart, could have gone down so many paths. But God, His love hovered; stayed with me there, embracing my soul in the stillness. Then took my heart out of the river, and placed it in an ocean; encompassed my soul with His love. So I can now tell you, why I know deeply. The love that glistens profoundly, upon the river of my soul. Predestined, when He set the stage, for a true love encounter. He will always be there for you, every step of the way. Just like you, I can share a thousand stories; things we encounter along the journey. My life isn’t special, it’s the love within; that changed the meaning. I said that, to say this. Knowing God’s love first, what made it possible for my heart; to know a better relationship. I wasn’t planning to share all this, but felt I needed to explain the why; First Love? My friends, let me ask you this? What brings your heart, the greatest joy? What do you know, you can always hold on to; when your soul, is in the middle of a hurricane? When the water just won’t recede, where do you go for refuge? But most importantly, in a time such as this; what’s your, First Love?
Child, in times of desperation; let faith be more than an anthem. Hope, more than just a word. When the moment seems hopeless, when the struggle is trying; to control your own heartbeat. When the battle, is a fight just to get through; a day gone so wrong. A heart once giddy, the heart of a child; weighed down by a word. Hopeless, a heart wondering. Will it again find Hope, or Less, of the faith you once knew? The hopeless, the state… of the mind; being truly determined, to let the heart truly lead the way. It’s a shifting of the heart, into a place; where you can truly see, it’s going to be okay. The move into being… still, to let your soul just listen, to the sound of love all around. Laugh out loud, let love be… the joy found. Tears, don’t mean a heart losing. Hopeless, just a place; where My love can always be found. When the day, becomes a world swirling; the moment feeling like a hurricane. When the day, feels like it’s a heart hopelessly; twisted… up in the wind. I’m alAlready There, before your heart cries!
I’m Already There, waiting; to be your everything, in a beautiful exchange. Don’t let the thought, that my love would want to engage my heart; mean I see you as hopeless. See a loving Father, wanting to be what you need. Early to rise, healthy, wealthy; wise, making my love the only choice. Make Hope a lifestyle, embrace my love for a lifetime. To be a heart every day, waking up smiling. Turn, your heart to the heavens; therein lies a gentle whisper. Even though hopeless, can become a place found; take heart, I’m already there. Even though, the days are called all alone. Even inside the silence, of an emotional river; with no room for anyone else. When the call, coming from a lonely place. My heart, the lighthouse in the dark. My love, the light shining on me. When your soul, couldn’t make a sound. Within the stillness, His love; what a heart will hear. For me, I tell you I can see; He was already there!
Daddy, are you there. Son, when you think; our hearts are a thousand miles apart. Just take a look around, you will see me everywhere; I’m everything your heart needs me to be. I’m the sunshine, the shadow you call a friend. I’m in the beat, that moves every heartstrings; in the moonlight shining all around. Look up child, I’m the whisper, that moves in the wind. In every prayer, my love is the voice that speaks; a friend to the very end. I’m with you, always and forever. When you’re sleeping, I’m there; lying right by your side. Let my love be, the kiss upon your heart… felt deep within. Let my love be the only touch, your heart can’t seem to do without. Let it be your peace, every day, and in the night. Your heart is forever held, forever in my undying love. Let me be in your dreams, the way you’ve always been part of my heart. When, your heart seems far from me. Child, I was the one, seeking to have you close. You never have to worry about today, tomorrow; I’m already there. Don’t just feel, I need you to forever know; we share such a special bond. Beloved, all your hopes; put them within my love. Before your heart, ever needs to know my love is near; I’m Already There!
I’m Already There, was released in 2001; by Lonestar, an American country music group. One of the reasons, why I do these song Inspired. Not so much, to promote the song; but share a message I hear within. A few of days ago, this song resonated. I knew it to be a wonderful song, but didn’t know why today was day for it. But, God knew. His love is truly at work, even in times such as this. Today, I was looking up the story behind the song. Only to find out that it was written for soldiers, and the loved ones left at home. In Canada July 1st, is celebrated as its Independence Day. And with today, being the U.S. forth of July weekend. This is the perfect song, to be inspired by. To point to where, true hope is found. Show that God, is forever in the midst of everything. I’ve learned, that in everything; His love is speaking; a heart just needs to be listening. We can seek independence, but Independant of His Grace; we become hearts truly lost. Whatever, wherever we need His love to be; He’s Already There… waiting! Have a wonderful weekend!
In written text, but sometimes miss placed the context. Agree to disagree, will never change the simple truth. Live, Move; Have our being, only possible through the breadth of God’s love. What we feel, is irrelevant to what’s in words. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-5. What we face today, cannot be simplified; as just right or wrong. A heart would never truly understand; WWJD (what would Jesus Do), until you know what God said! Put My love first, and let it be last. I AM, Alpha, Omega. It’s the deFined line, between love and hate. In every situation, we’re told to do one thing. Examine our own heart, and let God be the judge… of what role His love truly played; in the midst of what you believe is truth. The truth of God’s love, should never be trivialized; as just good verses evil. Should never be dismissed, as irrelevant words… for times such as these. Every Book, Chapter, Verse; will forever play a part, in every context. “In the beginning God, created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1.
When it’s all said and done, it truly comes down to a choice. Choosing to Love, when hate… what you see everyday; becomes a heart influenced, by a tainted context. Be disturbed, be stirred; but don’t let your faith be shaken, to who’s in control. So often, we’re tempted to put it into categories; but, I… feel. The context, that should always be applied; the I AM? “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 AMP. That’s why, the passion, the truth; should always be governed by the text. Kingdoms rise, kingdoms fall; but His words are unshaken, it’s the ONLY firm foundation. You don’t have to be a theologian to truly understand. We have, We do, We still; have to apply, what’s in the text. Knee deep, doesn’t mean a place you haven’t been. The question is, what are you knee deep in? Is it in Love, or a version without the grace? God, the word that can truly provide the context; so a heart can truly see, love through the right perspective!
Even when, love doesn’t seem like it’s evenly matched; it still needs to be, evenly distributed. The number doesn’t have to be even, to be perfect. A split right down the middle, can still mean a heart… completely broken. Even-keel, defines stability. But if you don’t know, what truly makes your heart centered? How can your soul, truly be grounded? Even though, we try so hard to adjust our thoughts; we can still see through a tainted view. Why, love needs to be the lens that enlightens; true clarity for our hearts. Sometimes I feel, my heart is just too heavenly minded? Being, earthly; not doing my heart so good. God, Your love comes first. But I see, how so many think of it last. Set apart, so I stand aloof. Watch the reign, my heart cries. So many think, true love is feelings. But, it’s in the knowing; what love truly means. Not in the seeing, but understanding… the creation!
Lord, WE need change, let Your love illuminate the truth; change first starts within. Why should a heart cast stones, when the ripples will affect so much? Even, not even Steven. God’s love forever reigns, Even; when the hurt seems like, a glimpse into hell. His love, is still Heaven. Even when, we can’t find the words? His love is speaking, to let us know; where true hope is found. But, our hearts have to be truly listening. We don’t need to chase after things, just relentlessly pursue His heart; to find All we need. Lord, whenever what we see, is enough to shipwreck our faith? Drown us deeper, within Your grace. Until the true depth of Your love, is revealed. Your love is the only anchor, for a capsized soul. Even when, waves of emotion are an endless rain. Your love is the ocean, for every bottled up tear. Your love is water, the air; in every breath. Even when, strength to find hope seems lost. Courage, can show a heart; even then, hope is never lost!
Even when, time on earth is done. Forever, will still revolve around Your love. Still in control, Your love is the only consistency. Why, we should let Your love be; what truly moves our every breath. Even though, a heart lives a well-balanced life. Three square, but trying to settle the score. Still leaves a soul, with some food for thought. When my heart is broken, it’s just because I know… what breaks Yours. When, we feel we just can’t find peace; You’ve shown us how to find You. At the end of the day, the only thing that truly matters; get self out of the equation. Then every heart, would truly know Your love. Our every breath, need to forever sing Your praise. When it makes no sense, our heart needs to do a double check. To see if what we believe to be love, is at odds with Your heart. We need You, but we need to want You. The hope that moves, the love that rescues. Even when, Your love is. Even if, Your love will. Even in, Your love hovers. Even now, Your love is moving. Even after, Your heart will never change!
Thirsty, so many souls that don’t even realize… they’re thirsty. Souls so parched, but can’t see it within their heart. How to take shelter, within the risen Son. For a heart, to absorb all of life’s true blessings. Your love needs to be the true water, that soaks up every inch of our soul. If not, dreams turn into dried up hopes. It’s not about unrest, but what’s underneath the surface; a thirsting, to truly have more of You. Only if, our souls could thirst for You, and You alone. We would truly know, love is a thirsting; but You are the source, for true fulfillment. Your love is the only thing, that can get water; to come out of a heart of stone. Only if a heart could truly soak that all in, forever soak it up? A soul would truly be live, deep beneath the fulfilling love. It’s not about surrendering to a moment, but living fulfilled; within a surrendered heart!
Why should it take having no hope, to realize we truly need You? I don’t have to pray, for You to take control; You are… in control. We just need to see, You are our living hope. In this dry, thirsty land; Your love is the water. The overflow, found deep within Your will. Living water, found forever flowing; with overflowing hope. Show our hearts, how to be truly thirsty; but only for You, Lord. Show us how to walk a mile, not in just any shoes; but follow the footprint, left in the sands of time. We don’t have to draw on another blueprint, it’s still a faith walk. We can try to gain the world, seek after having a kingdom; but, You will still be Lord. Next to You, we would have gained nothing… that will last. Oh Lord, oh Lord; our needs to thirst, just for You. There’s absolutely nothing, that our hearts should want more; than to know You. Thirsty, why can’t every heart truly see; the thirst is for You? How can a heart think it can breathe on its own, when Your love is the breath? A thirsty soul will never be quenched, without first knowing; where to find the fountain!
Father, may every vain imagination loss its luster. May every heart imagine what the world would be like; if the fabric of Your love, weren’t the true tapestry?Quench the thirst for power, if Your love is not the source. True understanding, is in the sweet taste of the surrender. I can only imagine, if every heart truly wanted to live, and breathe for You. Water, would surely flow out of my soul. Just to see Your love, being embrace by a world; needing to know, how deep is Your heart. So many have a thirst, the want to feel loved; but don’t see the need to have a thirsting, that will draw us closer to Your heart. So many believe, they’re in the know; but yet don’t know, there’s no hope without You. All, or nothing; what makes most hearts miss, what was in the true sacrifice. Every drip, is life saving. It’s in the thirsting, that truly makes it soul changing. Father, when the thirst takes hold; let the burning desire be, quenched by nothing else. Than the pure water, found within Your refreshing love. Hold nothing back, from the heart of a true seeker. Pour out Your love, for therein lies the absolute truth. Thirsty is the place, where Your heart will forever be found!
