Because of You!

Because of You, the unknown is eclipsed by what I know. Your love is the feeling that hovers, over the deeper surface of my soul. The peace within, my contentment within the presence. Because of You, my heart was a silent river; but now, Your love, the ocean. Because of You, I thought; true love for my heart, not worthy. But under the quiet, blown away was the silence. In the stillness, no more thinking; but the listening. A whisper into my heart, a song echoing in my soul. “Your love, to be forever my heart; worth it.” The world has an “F” word, but embedded within my soul; the true “F” word, Forever. That, I swear with all my heart. You are the reason, why my heart knows; what love is. The Cross my heart, within Your love, my hope; never die, without forever becoming truly breathless. A heart safe, within the love to know. Submerged, means deeply; in the deep places, of the love!

Because of You, heart and soul; will never be the same. Why, I can give freely back to You; the love, and my heart. Height, and depth; not just a place, but a destination. Your love, the gentler side of my soul. Overwhelmed, would be the heart… emotion. If truly touched by the love, wasn’t always what my soul is feeling. Because of You, I don’t want anything; without Your love, and my heart in it. Relentless, the chase after Your heart. Forever wanting my heart, what Your love… profoundly promised. Because of You, I know what true love is. Because of You, I know how to trust.. in love. No other love, will ever get me, get what, get that, get my heart; get my soul, into any other confession. My heart knows, there’s no losing Your love. I don’t have You, Your love has me; within the center of Your heart. Drowning, but knowing the true breadth; not in heart, but soul.

Because of You, dying; means a soul truly free, living in… Your love forever. A heart knowing absolutely, no living without; true freedom. A soul never having to worry, about be hurt. But, a heart being broken; for what breaks Yours. Your love, why I live. Life is lived, but living is the life; I have found in You. Having nothing else, but You; having all a heart can desire. In You, weakness is strength. I’m not intimidated, by what I face today. Not scared, of what lurks around a tomorrow. Your love, holds my forever. The night, but for a moment. The darkness, hides when the light shines; because of You. I was once young, now much older… to know. My heart, yet to see Your love; disappoint my soul. I’m not ashamed of my heart, my soul will defend the truth. Your love, the defender of my heart. The love I have, I will carry it boldly. Though the dark falls, I know my soul will rise again; Because, of You!

Here In!

Here in, where Your love is found. To fathom the true love therein, is to go beyond surface… emotions. To understand profound, but change by the understanding. It will never be about what feels good, but what’s truly deeper felt. What others call deep, may still be a heart not knowing. A soul never experiencing, what is deeply moved. It requires a deeper dive, into deep places. The jump in, but being forever submerged. To truly know breathless, starts in the wanting. To Experience a true drowning, to become soul alive… within. In the depth, in the deeper knowing. In the stillness, within the listening. Therein, the whisper in, the taking in, the moving; love in, with every breath. Quiet my heart, still my soul. To hear in the stillness, under the quiet; every breadth. Here in, and to the end of days; my heart will carry the love… boldly. Your love knows my name, my heart, my soul.

A pouring out from within, to have faith in made new. Your love therein, how a heart walks in victory. Abiding within, overcoming; the power therein. To conquer the unknown, a giant called fear. Here in, Your love is the true comforter. Strength beyond the physical, peace within; perplexing to the natural understanding. Man made fire cannot burn up, Your love is the fire. The passion within, the flame upon the heart. The eternal flame, a soul knowing consuming; a heart burning from the Here in. The battlefield is in the mind, no battle can defeat a heart. When Your love is the presence, that fights therein. You hold my hand, and forever Here in, by the heart. Therein, the world are some of the darkest night. But, be still to know. How to trust the love Here in; heart and soul. Where confidence is found, to know that even though the dark surrounds. Let your faith see past the darkness, it’s just a momentary reign. Therein, the light still shines; wherein, hope forever found.!

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39 AMP

Living, in You!

The height, the length, the breadth; a love that exceeds the imagination. Expand the mind, expand the heart; expand the soul. Increased hope, increased faith, increased depth; to the true understanding. Stretch the heart, stretch the soul; stretch futile thinking. A heart not knowing, a soul; not experiencing. Eyes can’t see, ears cannot hear; an infinite love, beyond breathless. Through every heartbeat, how the soul truly comprehends; the move… in, every breath. A heart flexible to be moved, a soul elasticized to know; resilience in the everlasting breath. A mind not willing to bend, to the power of others will. A heart that won’t adjust truth, to fit what others believe. Leaving the heart and soul vulnerable; to a mind easily deceived!

When the breadth pushes up against my soul, it’s not the push back; but the breathe deeply. In my soul, my heart will boldly carry the love; and display the resounding beauty. For You, by You, in You; through You, true living. Within the refuge, the sanctuary. Under the canopy, the hiding place. Living in grace, living in the deepest place. Living, seeing, believing, knowing, trusting. Training the mind and body, readying the heart and soul. For the speaking, the hearing, the listening; said underneath every breath. In being, in stillness, in You; where love abides. Life, meant to be lived with meaning. A heart beating, knowing the true purpose; the soul Living, In You!

A Story; Closer, to Your Heart!

I didn’t realize, that your heart wasn’t tightly; pressed up against my soul. I vowed, to keep it close. Never let your love not be, what forever moves my heart. You must surely know, and completely understand; I was busy, “trying to keep up with the Jones.” You see, it’s really not my fault; even though you had to watch from a distance, our hearts drifting apart. Okay, it absolutely was, me, myself, I… did leave you waiting. Looking, longing, wanting; to be closer. We were already close, and I knew your love was there, hovering; trying to get my attention. I didn’t notice, the distance between my every breath… a chasm. Hello, how truly profound… ly insensitive. How could I have not noticed; my heart on its own life support? The breadth of your love, so few and far between. A soul gasping, fluttering; for the love. That became my every breath, and water for my soul!

A heart disconnected, the soul needing to be reconnected. To the power source, where I find so much strength; through an undying love. My soul wasn’t feeling your heart beat, within my soul as it once did. Just a heart, feeling beaten. I try to listen, but I didn’t hear your voice. The small, the quiet whisper. My soul needed to be still, but my heart was speaking; when it should have been listening. I was looking for love, but there was this one tree; in the wilderness of my soul. Even though my soul, could recognize your voice from all the rest. So many voices surrounded my heart, crowding your heartbeat. Oh me, oh my heart; cry out… louder. Oh heart, stop; listen intensely. But at last, my soul went quiet; retreated back into the silent river. “Que Sera, Sera; what will be, will be.” A heart overwhelmed, a soul wondering; would ever be again?

A heart that ended up, wandering down memory lane. A soul now on a journey, through the heart of the lily of the valley. Showing the wonderful moments shared, and how the love was forever the guiding light. A heart, the soul, a want, the need; your love, the song… in the dark. The lonely river, slowly became the unfamiliar place. Over the years, my heart had spent so much time; living in an ocean of love. Deeply was the water, the love so refreshing, and each wave of deep eMotion. A heart knowing, such a gentle stream of love. A love running forever down, into depth of soul. The rain fell, the pouring out; into the everlasting reign. What was my soul to do, but let it be… dear, Lord. Let it be, back to the drawing. No dragging, no kicking; just a heart screaming, broken. It was the move, closer… than ever. A move to find, stepping out to be found; profoundly moved, in heart and soul!

A heart no longer adrift, in my silent river. A heart now back on the path, a soul no longer feeling so broken. A heart, realizing; a mistaken identity, will never change God’s love. When I thought, just give up… the faith; “His love said never, I will give up… your heart.” Patiently You waited, but the distance between widening; then your relentless pursuit. Why now, the love so much deeper. I see the love, through the lens of your heart; not just a one sided viewpoint. A renewed perspective, your love being the true vantage point. Never again will I allow, even a degree of separation; keep me from pursuing your heart. Forgive me, when I feel I’m making your heart seem unloved. To know the true depth of your love, in me; and my heart’s true worth, to You? It will be the forever seek after. The run down, the endless chase; and be a man after… your heart. I will always move to you, my soul will only stop at the moment. When You have my every breath, and my soul close enough to know; your love has stopped moving. My heart has become so relentless; trying to get Closer, to Your heart!

– I wrote this about six years ago, when my heart reflected on a moment lived a few years before. May it be an encouragement for your heart, to know it doesn’t matter what you’re going through. God’s love will never leave you where you are, but relentlessly pursue the heart, of those who truly want to know His heart!

Listening!

Words spoken, but hearts; not ready to acknowledge the truth. A presence is moving, but yet; so many hearts not seeing? So much is happening, but many not perceiving. So much is said, under the quiet; but so many hearts; not yet open… to the receiving? Ears are hearing, eyes are seeing; but the heart pretending. Hark! Who goes there? So many think, this is a time within to play. Not realizing, it’s time to Harken. Sound off, one, two. There’s always a sound, that precedes a move… of God; what hearts must concede. So many hang up their hopes, on the evidently. Instead of forever resting their hearts, on the evidence in plain sight… for all to see. So many take notice of, but the heart not yet ready to act on. Action is truly required, if change is ever to take place… within. No point of listening, if the heart doesn’t see the need; to respond to what is being heard. Nevertheless, there is a move. The question is this, is the heart willing to be moved; by each gentle whisper? Words are spoken, but the heart has to be… Listening. Shh, quiet your heart. Listen, can you hear; in the midst, God is speaking? In His love, your heart will be… okay!

Father, even though uncertainty comes to the day; let the confusion never be… that You still reign. Your love is in words, in You hope is the word; a heart needs to know. Speak, let hearts know; in You freedom reigns every day. Let us not miss the moment, to what is said; when You whisper into the stillness. When the doubts soar, souls are overwhelmed. Help every heartbeat to believe, in You there’s life; in You hearts will conquer… the unknown. Father, when words are lost; may peace be still, be found. Hope in the storm, a song in the night. May we trust in You the Unseen, to find safety; when all seems lost… in the See. Help us to listen, when Your heart speaks. Your love is the first, the last; will always be the safest place. When the world don’t seem to know, where to turn? You know just what we need, know what we can’t see. Every season has a moment, and every moment just a season. Bring us to a higher place, take us into a deeper love; into a heart, so Renowned!
