The Culprit!

It starts, with who truly has control? So many try to get a grip, but first you have to be equipped. Some have the will, but lack has all the power. When compassion becomes, the insufficient state. Callous may become, the matter of fact. It’s not about just being aware, but being truly vigilant. Why, we have to be guarded; put on the whole armor. Don’t throw the quiver, use every single arrow. For when, indifference enters the open door; the culprit, will be a disregard. When the truth, is not tainted. The embraced reasoning, the battles you don’t fight alone. It’s so easy, to categorically put it into; what’s right, what’s wrong. But, without therein being the unambiguous. How therefore can the logical deduction, be determined righteous? With no real inherent change taking place, the deductive reasoning will conclude; the culprit to be, the truth being deceived. How do you reason with a culprit, when the thought becomes irrational? Every day, don’t worry about trying to hold; just know every breath, forever held!

You can try on your own to resist, but the culprit will surely persist; a heartbeat will it not miss. Deception, one of the proven motives. Overzealous, a root cause. This culprit has baggage, filled with so much guilty tendencies. Why, there became the need; for forgiveness. Thank goodness, that we can always find Grace; waiting to meet the need. With no reasonable understanding to know why, faithfully? Some days, it’s the pick you up; the occasional call your bluff. Life is tough, why living off the cuff; will never be enough. You can’t just run and hide, when the day’s a changing tide. You can hold to a futile pride, or simply decide. When fear comes calling, will you truly be able; to handle the roller coaster ride? It’s not about taking hold, but Who truly has a hold? Breathe easy, it’s not about getting control; but a soul living true, in the surrender. For who, can truly control a deceptive culprit; A Wayward Heart? The struggle is real, but in God; that’s where you find the freedom, to breathe!

Song Inspired; Never Give Up!

Having a vision, seeing through a renewed perspective; what changes how you view your world. Seeing clearly, what broadens the horizon. Feeling trapped, doesn’t have to mean; a heart feeling there’s no where to turn. In every situation, there will always a solution. Don’t, be afraid to dream; keep the dream alive. Don’t be afraid, to face the world. Against all odds, the day can still be victorious; if you truly believe. Even within the darkest night, light comes at the dawn. Even when the rain falls, tears don’t mean you’re losing the fight. A green grass can turn brown, and a frown becomes clouded doubts. But, after a little rain. On the other side of what falls, a soul can again see feeling refreshed. For, the sun will shine again. And the grass beginning to look, so much greener. So, be encouraged; be an encouragement. Keep inspiring, be an inspiration. You never know who needs you, to be profoundly inspired? Why, you never stop believing; Never Give Up!

Eery victory, comes in time; but it’s the moment, that will define your resilience. Work hard today, and there will surely be a change. Tomorrow gets easier, when today is a heart willing to persevere. Who can say, you can’t fly? Who can say, you can’t soar to new heights? The air they breathe, will never give your faith wings. Every step you take, you get closer to your destination. Even when, the day doesn’t make sense. Even when, the season becomes a bit chilling; the day can still, produce an awesome breeze. In all that life makes known, fulfillment is revealed; through a divine purpose. Quiet your soul, steady your heart. You just might hear, a whisper in the wind; heard within the stillness. All you need; courage now, hope later; faith always. Persevere the beauty of life, alive within your heart. The answer, to solving a mystery? Not found in seeing, the completed puzzle. But in the pieces you chose, to pick up and use; to complete the picture you needed to see. The key, to unlocking understanding; found in the source where, true wisdom is discovered. Even if you lose your way, hope is never lost. Sometimes, life has stumbling blocks. Sometimes, barriers are just to test your heart. Deep inside, where true strength is found. So, Never Give Up!

Song Excerpt: Don’t give up, every victory comes in time. Work today, to change tomorrow; it gets easier. Who’s to say, that you can’t fly? Every step you take, you get closer to your destination!”

– This song inspired, is a song released in 2001 by Yolanda Adams. An American gospel singer, record producer, actress, and host of her own nationally syndicated morning gospel show. She has sold nearly 10 million albums worldwide. Hope this was a blessing!

A Labor of Love!

Why we do the things we do, why do we forge a new alliance; fortify, what do don’t want to crumble? Why, are we willing to take the heat; even go through the fire? Why are we so eager, to hammer out problems? Iron, sharpens iron; but, it’s so much more than that. Why do we create, why are we so creative? A relationship is formed, when we tap into what we see… already created. Why do we work so hard, trying to be our best; inspire, want to be inspired? Why is a random act, kindness seen as something worthwhile pursuing? Why do we build up, believe we can construct a brighter tomorrow; through every season, still see a new horizon? A labor of love, not just something you put together. It’s something established, through the willingness to do; and the enjoyment revealed, from what has been created. Why do we feel the need, to help the less fortunate? It’s not about being lucky, but being truly intentional. Why do we tend, to cast caution to the wind? Why do we continuously cast off, to make every new day an adventure; A Labor of Love!

Why does a mother give birth, again and again; even when what’s birthed, a life with so much pain? Why does a woman sacrifice, so much for the family; when what has been created, becomes a life falling apart? Why does a heart pursue, a passion and dreams; even when the road is so winding? Why does a man in the pursuit of happiness, stumble and fall; but yet still determined, to be the best husband and father possible? Why does someone show up every day, to accomplish the task at hand; when it can all turn into another hard day, feeling unaccomplished? A bond, not because the glue is crazy; but because the labor put in, love being the result. True love, means the participation. Why do we mold our hearts, fashion our resolve to fit; into a complexity? Love, it’s all starts with the want to create. To behold what has been created, through truly loving the creation. The form every heart wants model, shaped by desperately needing to know; the love of the creator. Making something, out of nothing; will never be evident, through a state of being… anecdotal. To produce an outcome, to truly have something turn out to be, the evidence of what’s not yet seen; therein has to be the undisputed, A Labor of Love!

Song Inspired; Run to You!

Much, that others don’t see; I know, You see it all. The good, the bad; the ugly within my own heart. But, whenever I run to You; Your love always takes the time, to listen to my heart. In You, how I find my peace. A place where You would always meet me, the place where searching; meant always finding, my greatest joy. In a silent river, even on a not so sure riverbank. When it was the heart of a scared little boy, it was You; the one that ran to me. Who knew, just You; that I would get to this place, still needing You as my anchor. Your love is always so strong, it held on to my heart; when the nights became a raging sea. A river running into a wide open ocean, an ocean becoming the rising calm. Drowning, never became the problem; breathless, the place my soul needed to get to. Here, still needing You. Now, the need for You more than ever. Forever, knowing that tomorrow; the need will be even greater!

For years, I played the part; someone always in control. But I know now, it first started with the surrender. Giving all of me, the needing to let go. So my heart could find how, to arrive at this predestined place. Whenever I felt alone, You were always there; hovering, over every breath. You held me in your arms, when I needed to be close to your heart; to keep my heart safe from harm. You stayed, not just because I needed You; but because You, never stopped wanting me. Every day, the coming home. Turning up… was the key, to always see Your love waiting; never wanting to leave. There’s nobody, that will ever care as much for me; the same way You do. What’s the true sense, trying hard to find dreams. If not finding You there… in the midst; for every shared moment? I need You Here, to wipe away the tears. I need You Now, to kiss away any lingering fear. I need You Forever, so I can always; Run to You!

What if I held it forever, would my heart still be able to breathe? What if a tidal wave of emotions, made my heart feel so overwhelmed? Would the air in my lungs, be enough to sustain my soul? What if I tried, to gaze forever into your heart? Would a mere glimpse, be the endless shimmer to stop my heart; become a breathless moment? What if, the rhythm of my heart was erratic, would anyone truly be able to tell that it’s Your love; that steadies heartbeat? Tell me, what if; I stopped holding my breath? How would my soul, know how to truly breathe?

This song inspired, was released in 1987, and was part of the bodyguard soundtrack and movie; with Whitney Houston, and Kevin Costner. August 9, would have been her birthday day. From her first album released in the 80’s, you can see that God gave her an incredible gift. But unfortunately, her life is also a perfect example. To show that if we don’t truly guard our heart, we can end up straying down a darkened path. The light of God’s love hovers, but it’s for us to NOT; let the darkness eclipse, the enlightened way!

Words!

People sometimes forget, how Powerful Words can be; Written, or Verbal. Words have the true ability, to inspire a heart to Achieve greatness, or forever Agonize the soul, into Everlasting defeat. Kind Words can Motivate, give you real Hope; especially when you don’t feel you have any. Unkind words, can take deep Root; until a soul is barely surviving, from a heart lacking the will to Thrive. Words, they have the ability to Paralyze, with so much fear. Some words, can absolutely Crush the Spirit, leaving a heart Broken for years. Words, we have so many to choose from. Use the Power within words, to Speak life, build up self worth; in you, and those around you. Choose words that truly Inspire, Encourage, give Hope; instill Peace, bring Joy. Let your heart be True, the love within be Faithful; Espouse truth, within… Words!

Fun Friday; The Lollipop Tale!

Growing up as a child, I had a lot of “so called suckers,” come my way. I have to admit, I favored the Lollipop. We got close, eventually it just became Lolli, for short. Being an only child, I enjoyed our time together; that lasted into my teens. When it came to describing Lolli, sweet would be an understatement. I stuck with Lolli, because of all the sweet moments. The color of love, changing before your very eyes. I would like to dispel the notion, “that a sucker is born every minute.” I know for a fact, they’re made… sweet. Made sweet like Lolli, people are the ones; that label them a sucker. Like that of the heart of a child, I treated them with love, and truly savored the moment. I believe, that most people didn’t take the time to understand; that sucker have it hard. Suckers lived, from hand to mouth; knowing, tomorrow is never promised. It was never about a sugar rush, but slow and steady; the store was so far. Why I now know how, to walk a mile, or two!

Back in the 80’s, so many sucker… MC’s; tried to wRap, but they couldn’t live up to my expectations. For so many, the outside was a hard facade; but what revealed itself from the inside, showed the true color. As a child, you can learn a lot; from the simplest things. You can learn, the meaning of phrases like; that’s sweet, you’re sweet. Then when you grow up, you understand the true meaning; to many of life’s lessons, and what source truly gives everything; the truest layers of sweetness. For all the Lollipops in the world, my every child appreciate your worth. The life of a sucker, short lived, and I always felt so bad; for those poor suckers. Well, just for the minute, or two; it took me to appreciate the sweetest moment. So many suckers, tried to sway me; to be their one and only. But, truth be told; I only had eyes for my sweet Lollipop. Well, until a teenage boy met his forever. Gave his heart to a soulful New Edition, the sweetest Candy… Girl, and to this day still living… happily ever after!

Hope you all enjoyed, this lollipop tale; and got a takeaway. It’s tongue and cheeky, but there’s a moral of this story. We all have memorable moments in our life, a story to tell. We just need to see it, through the right perspective. Growing up, I spent a lot of time alone; within my own vivid imagination. My world, seen through the heart lens, of an introverted prism. Life is short, and even though it doesn’t turn out the way we would have hoped? We need to live it with no regrets, make the best of every choice. The good, and the bad; what brings our hearts, to a predestined destination. Be inspired, to live your heart to fullest. And when soul, truly comes face to face; with the greatest love, a heart can ever know? May greatness be truly realized, as just the starting point. I can tell a thousand stories, but may heart will always point the way; to only one God! Be blessed!

Try Joy!

It’s free, you just need to add the right ingredient. Not sure where to get it, where to find it; if you’re going to like it? I’ve tried it, and it’s truly awesome; I know you’re going to love it too. All you have to do, get yourself some peace, sprinkle on it lots of hope, and add in some real contentment. Mix them all together, with love… for yourself. Once you’ve done all that, you will be able truly taste, and see; how joy can truly change a perspective. You can’t buy this kind of joy, you can’t even borrow it from someone else. Only your heart, and your soul can put together the right ingredient needed; to produce the sweetest tasting joy. True joy is free, the price already paid. When you know God, His love shows you how; His joy can transform heart, and soul. Only then, will you be able to share that joy, with others. Yes, from time to time we do struggle; with not having enough to share. We just need to remember, on the road called life; it’s a journey, we all have to take. The joy we seek, comes when a heart is truly fulfilled. The presence of God’s love, the only thing; that can give a soul fullness… of joy. When the heart embraces the true fullness, your soul will find; it gives pleasure… forever. Then your heart will have what it truly needs, to go help light the world. Let the power that joy brings, be the center of what fills you. With true love, hope, and abundant peace. So, regardless of what your heart has to constantly taste? Even bitterness, will never have any true flavor; when you, Try Joy… everyday!

Rear View!

The past behind, a destiny before you. Sometimes, you need to take a quick look back. Get a clear view, to see how far your heart has come. Keeping a clear perspective, will make sure heart and soul; are both looking forward to the arrival. The rear view, requires just a momentary glance… at the heart. The focus, should always be the destination; where you’re ultimately to end up, and the end of the journey? Don’t get ahead of tomorrow, today will surely need your full attention. Just so, you don’t end up ditching; all your hopes and dreams. A heart off course, is a soul fixated on the shadows; reflections, of what once was. Broken doesn’t mean, you can’t reflect… your worth. Flaws, doesn’t mean a heart not predestined. For every heart, to get safely from A, to B… contented. Turn the endless pursuing of meaningless, to the relentless pursuit of meaningful. You never have to worry about, where the rubber meets the road. If the heart truly knows who, is truly in the driver’s seat? Shotgun, a heart trying to stay on the straight and narrow; but the disconnect, the soul just tagging along… for the ride!

A mirror, reveals what’s seen on the surface. But it’s the heart that does the true revealing, who you are on the inside. You can have a light that shines, but if it’s not the right kind of light? The soul can’t help the heart navigate, which way is true? Only to become a heart and soul, heading in the wrong direction. Seeing clearly, is not just recognizing what has been revealed; but seeing what changes, still needs to take place… within. Object in a mirror, are closer than they appear. Why, you constantly have to check the blind spots. Seeing, can sometimes be deceiving; if the receiving, isn’t part of what you’ve been truly believing. The blessings cannot overtake, if the heart doesn’t know; when the time has come to accelerate, the master plan. The journey, what takes the soul to a place… of true contentment. Along the way, there will always be obstacles. Applied faith, what makes the heart overcome. Tell anyone, that tries to get in your way; you can’t stop now. My heart, and soul is heading; up the Kings Highway. A Rear View, not to see what you’ve left behind; but see how far the heart and soul has come, on the journey called life!

Fun Friday; As The Months Pass!

January, oh January; on the calendar, my eyes thee as first. But, in my heart; thy love will never be first, last… ing; bitter is the diss… served cold. Thy nights are cold, but at last; January, that’s… “Much Ado about Nothing.” Within this heart of mine, abides a love; that truly warms my heart. A love that fills my soul, lingers endlessly within the depth. February, the month of my mothers birth. Without that, I would never be. Every so often, there’s a leap… into an extended blessing. Every heart, getting to enjoy another day. Year after year, the days will surely end; to start another March. Onward, onward; say bye, to your Jericho. Spring forward, the time hasn’t come; to stop, and smell roses. The kiss upon two lips, your heart has entered into a new season. In the cool of the day, the veil removed. Love in a new light, love enlightening a renewed hope. Every heart being able to breathe easier, for freedom reigns. April, her heart feels a move. A change taking place, love is in the air. Flowing down, into the innermost. Showers of love, the blessings therein. Touching the surface, but flourishing what is seen; through the coming bloom!

May, oh; may I tell you about my May flower. Her heart, stunning; so beautiful. Her love, shines so bright; shimmers, to show a mother’s love. It’s the month we wed, the very moment I said; you’re my forever. Oh, how my soul; still basking in her endless glow. Oh, Father; oh, father… time has gone; thank you, for all the years. They have come, they go; the seasons change, but Your love… forevermore. I can never stop time, with every breath; may it be a heart changed, within every season… to come. June, no one could ever mistake you, for September; confusing a six, for a nine? A change in season, will fall squarely on your shoulder. Hearts leaning into you, with such high expectations. Love, for the summertime. July, being seventh; doesn’t make it independently perfect. First the creation, perfection; what precedes all that is seen. August, the eighth wonder of the year. Not the month, you see; but what became of it. A wonderful creation came to be, my wife… is she; yes, glee. Que sera, sera; “whatever will be, will be!”

September, oh; September, within you another fall. Leaves falling, the color of love dancing; grooving to the autumn breeze. The nights are crisp, but hearts are not swayed. The days are just right, how can you argue with being alive, being able to breathe it in? Earth, Wind, or Fire; September, you’re groovy. October, the season to lean back, maybe even act a bit cool. Feeling the nostalgic vibe, the chill revisited remix. Oh, please don’t fall back; into the same old humdrum. A fish in a barrel, the love for life like water; to soothe every fear. October, yes; a time to give back, the season for true thanksgiving. November, Movember; a time for men to remember. Even the strongest man, can struggle with issues. It’s not a time to hide, but a time for growth; a moment to raise awareness. Hope found, is the fundamental reason. Why faith is the key, to help get a heart through… the tough times. December, as the months pass by; know that one thing will forever remain the same. The world would never truly understand, what is a holistic perspective; without there being a Holy birth. Emanuel, the bright morning star. The light glistening in the night, shining; to display the greatness, of the love within!
