Sand away the rough edges, chisel within a new heart of gold. Paint new with the color of love, with a love so amazing. Would your heart consider that to be, a true restoration? Hammer out the dents, smooth out the imperfections. Wax on, wax off; but it’s not about applying the right technique. For the love for to be truly restored, and a soul to truly shine bright. Don’t allow the love, to become lukewarm. A heart cannot shine to the original design, a full restoration cannot take place; if the love within… has waxed cold. The tear down of the walls, the demolition of what rots; the lies just beneath the surface. It’s never about the gut, but the heart restoration. No more dry rot, just good bones. A heart built new from the ground up, with love as the cornerstone. It’s not about building a house, but allowing the heart to become a home; for love to live in. Not by hard work, not by the material; but Grace, as the foundation!
What was broken, what seems in pieces; can again be restored. For there is a love, a love that is the true fix; a new heart, and a mind renewed. A heart was built to overcome, a soul meant to thrive. Hope found, is fear bound. What binds, forever broken; chains fall.. to pieces. Faith restored, strength renewed. What was stolen, what was taken by deception; will be replaced. Joy, peace, what a soul can truly know; in a true heart restoration. What was meant to be seen; a work of art, a portrait of love. Nothing missing, nothing broken. The picture, a restored masterpiece. Remade, into its original condition. The mission, show mercy, favor; reestablish the broken connection. The hearts of man, with the love of God. The restitution, the price paid; a new heart, a Restoration!
“After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace [who imparts His blessing and favor], who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you [making you what you ought to be]. To Him be dominion (power, authority, sovereignty) forever and ever. Amen.” 1 PETER 5:10-11 AMP https://www.bible.com/1588/1pe.5.10-11.amp
My child, my heart has loved you; for thousands of years. Before time was, I AM. Before your heart knew breath, My Love spoke… your name. Take hold of my everlasting love, let My Heart; show you the true breadth, of My Love. My child, don’t worry if you stumble; I got you. Those who are last now, will be first; when they truly know, My Love. I will never leave, My Love; will never forsake. Your heart beats so fast, your soul always racing; but child, what is your heart chasing? Chase after my heart, you will forever find; My Love… waiting. A thousand years for you, but a day… to me. Day after day, just know that; I got you. My Love hovers, let it surround your heart. Take off the blinders, the colorful promises. A love seen through rose colored glasses, does nothing… for a blinded heart. A pretty looking rainbow, is still just a mere reflection… of My Love. Let My Love shine in, through your heart and soul; for ten thousand years!
My child, let me take your heart, even higher. Oh, child; won’t you come a little deeper? All I ask, is just one step closer… to My Heart. My Love, will always be waiting. I can make time stand still, I can make your soul be still. I can make this happen, for a thousand years. Beauty, what I see in you; closeness, what I have for you. Won’t you let your heart be a glorious reflection, of My Love. Won’t you let My Love, be your refuge; and every day never doubt, that it will always be your Strength. So many want love, hearts were made to be loved; but what they were always meant to know, My Love. Hearts are always focused on the fall, forgetting that thousands of years ago. In the garden, Grace and Mercy was also there to show; My Love!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
Hope, you’re such a good friend. When my heart was lost in the darkness, Your love was the light; shimmering bright… into my soul. Hope, how I will forever lean on You; my faith and trust… in You alone. When fear is the darkness that creeps, You put hearts and mind at ease; with just a small still whisper. Hope , love for You; what steadies the heart, what comforts the soul. Hope, I truly can’t speak for anyone else; “I Love You.” Just thinking about, what the essence of Your love truly means to a heart. Words cannot even express, who You are. But one word can truly describe, what You are; faithful. Every time, You peer deep into my soul. It’s a river, an endless overflow… of my love and tears!
Hope, You are a strong tower. Your loving embrace, gives a soul true confidence. Teaches a heart, what is true faith. With Hope, what battles your soul; won’t make it so easy, for your heart to just give up. Hope, will help you to stand stronger. Mountains will seem that much smaller. Whatever seems a giant, with Hope; it will never define your heart. I can say without a doubt; Hope, is a true friend. When mother, father, brother, sister. When the world seems the darkest, there’s still Hope… for a brighter tomorrow. In times of need, a heart that has Hope; will always cast a light… on shadows. When fear takes hold, when the dog bites, when the bee stings. When the feeling is only sadness, in the very midst… Hope!
My friends, let Hope take hold of your heart. Let Hope forever walk with you, talk into your soul. Hope knows your name, Hope knows how to soothe… your beating heart. You’re not alone, Hope is the power within. Trust Hope with your life, then every day… walk in victory. Hope, will never rob your heart. Hope is a gift, for when darkness grips the soul. Hope is what a heart needs, to see clearly. When the thief comes at the darkest hour, to steal, to kill; to rob you of every bit of your joy. With Hope, your heart will know how to hide… in the secret place; where Grace and Mercy resides. When you know how to put your Hope… in God. His love will never let your heart and soul, be destroyed!
“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NLT
Thank You, for loving on me; when my heart felt unloved. Thank You, for being my voice; when my heart just didn’t know what to say. Thank You, for being my defender; when my heart felt it was losing the fight. Thank You, for always being there; when my heart felt so alone. Thank You, for whispering words of love… into my soul. When my heart had lost the words, within a silent river. Deep down, my soul found The Love. But now my heart, needs to write A Letter; to say how Grateful!
For even when I couldn’t see it, Your love was working. Even when I may not have felt it, You’re always working… on my soul. You never stopped, Your love will never stop working; to change my heart… from within. All I can truly say, Thank You! Your love is teaching my heart the true art, Careful Meditation; Controlled Speech, what is… true Forgiveness. This letter is a moment, an opportunity to tell Your heart; Thank You, for the unwavering love!
Cast your cares, cast your heart on the other side… of what you see. Set your sight on a new horizon, on a brighter tomorrow. Into deeper waters, into a true ocean of love. A heart ready to forever cast away… whatever tries to bind. A heart wide open, to set sail on what is an open… eyes to see. Faith, is sight beyond what can be seen. Even though your heart, may not be sure of the heading. Be sure of this one thing, your soul has a destination. Your heart gets to choose the direction, but the journey is already predestined. Most hearts tend to have a cruising speed, but tell me; who truly has the wheel?
Be in control of the love, but make sure you know what kind of rudder; is steering your heart. Even if I tried, I could never put my heart on cruise control. What drives me, is also what moves my beating heart. Life is short, a journey that takes a heart into so many tomorrows. Once the journey becomes clear, once your heart has made the choice to be free; never look back. Live it right, live it well. Live with no regrets, no guilt, no shame. But first choose to live it, within God’s love. Try not to let your heart drift off course. Even a degree off, never gets a soul… to the chosen destination. We forever need incremental changes, meaningful; true lasting course corrections!
God knows what’s best for you. His love can prepare your heart, prepare your mind; to be ready for whatever comes. With His love in control, you can never go wrong; with the strength to pass any test. Feel the need for speed, but always remember. Love for, doesn’t also mean in love with. Why, our hearts should never be only on Cruise Control. Be intentional, the will, the power; but forever a choice. Don’t let the heart and soul, be two ships passing in the night. Let the love within, be the compass that guides… the heart. You’re free to do, and even if you get off course. His love will still be there, to show your heart the way home. A life renewed, but a soul that knows how to give thanks; for such Amazing Grace!
John 21:6 ESV – “He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some…” What’s your some; Love, Joy, Peace? Cast… away, howyouforevergetsome!
An open soul, how the glory is truly revealed. The open skies, shows the heavens. But it’s a heart wide open, that can see the risen Son. A heart truly open, what makes the glory rain down. But a heart can never truly feel the reign, if the heart is tightly shut up. Even when the clouds set in, even when the darkness covers; nothing can ever stop the reign. Heaven, show our hearts how to truly see beyond… the blue skies. God help us to get under the fullness, the glorious reign. A heart soaring, not just to capture a dream; but be absolutely captivated, by a vision of love. The beauty, the magnificent splendor. The breathless awe, may hearts truly feel… the Reign!
A fresh wind, blowing through the caverns of our soul; rain pour down, fall afresh. Signs, and wonders; above all hope. The reign, falling into our soul… until it floods. The stand on, the stand under; the stand up, for the truth. Standing in the presence, the everlasting reign. Hearts surrendered, hearts starting to see the gravity. For the reign to truly be known, a heart needs to be absolutely wide open… to receive. A look to the heavens, a look into our own hearts; to know the true manifested reign. Tears don’t mean you’re losing. The rain… down your face, mean you feel the love growing. Reign drops on roses, hearts in a forever bloom!
Heaven, may our eyes truly be on You; may our hearts truly see the glory. Let our peace be still, drench our soul. Let our hearts know, how to forever sing in the reign. Souls rejoicing in the storm, hearts riding out every wave. Until the tidal waves of eMotion, is Your love washing over our souls. Your loving embrace, Your glorious reign; within an open heart. Father, Thank You; that we can breathe in Your presence. That my every breath, is Your love… in me. May every heart truly feel, may every soul forever see; The Open… Heaven, the Reign!
To stomp on your heart, to trample on your soul; to let you lose sight of your dreams. To ultimately grip, your heart with unfounded fears. What the darkness tries to do, to your heart. Show the darkness you have a light; within, around, throughout… it all. Let the darkness be blinded by the light. Shine bright, shimmer fiercely; you are a diamond… noteasilybroken! Even in the rough times, let the darkness know; your heart is grounded. Forever rooted, no longer a slave… to fear. Kick fear to the curb, no trash talk today; my heart is predestined to thrive. Tell the darkness, Not Today!
You see, my friends. I too have faced dark times, but never a dark moment. What I mean by that? We all go through dark valleys, but I never let it define the moment. The darkness definitely has a shadow, but my heart is what will never cast the doubt. Just the light, a reflection of the love shining; from the inside. The darkness knows, I’m Never in the mood. So, when the darkness comes, trying to mess with your faith. When it tries to steal your hope, stamp the telltale sign on your heart; Not Today. I’m not in the mood… for the lies, the trickery; the deception. Let the darkness know, light within is so much greater. Then the darkness will surely give way, to the light… in you. Let the darkness read all about it, let it be front page news; how much your heart is truly free. And you’re truly bold, tell the darkness to pay special attention; to the highlighted area, Hell No… Not Today!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I would like to share one of my earliest memories, of a “Not Today” moment. I was 13, some friends and I were heading to the mall to hang out. On the way there, my friends decided to take a shortcut; through someone’s backyard. They all jumped the fence, and wanted me to follow; but my heart wasn’t trained for that. I told them I wasn’t comfortable with it. One of them said, take the long way, or go back. It was a true defining moment, but never a hard decision. My heart was content, to just go back home. Never held it against them, it was a moment for my heart to say; devil, Not Today!
To this day I’ve never been one to be bothered, or influenced by what others thought, or said about me. Growing up I had a wonderful godly grandmother, who knew my heart need a firm foundation; why I’ve been in church all my life. Even though it wasn’t until the age 15, when I accepted the true calling on my heart. Looking back now, I can see that from a young age; I knew who I was, and am. When you hear about predestined, and set apart. I can unequivocally say, I truly know what that means. One of my favorite scriptures, which I memorized around the age of ten; Psalms 23. “Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.” Verse 4, NLT
