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?

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.

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!

Song Inspired; I’m Already There!

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!

I Get Lost!

It doesn’t matter how I try, I can’t seem to help being at a loss. Whenever I try to express my heart, it’s another moment… being utterly lost. A heart so at a loss… sometimes. The sum total, that brings it all together. Abandoning any predetermined thought, to let the heart find; what is the right direction. A heart lost, but a soul left in awe. I can write it down, but are you truly able; to read between the lines? I get lost, in a place where you can always find my heart. Most of the days, you can find me there. At times, it’s a heart breathless. A soul gasping, how I know I’m truly breathing. Even if you don’t get it, may your heart have the understand; to what I’m trying to say? I stepped off the sure, let faith bring my heart to a place. Where swept away, a soul wanting to be lost… in the depth. A place where my heart has been learning, breath is not what my soul needed; to know how to truly breathe. Lost, not out of what you see; but in a glimpse, into what my heart can find in words… to share. When, my heart gets a chance to reflect. Words, that becomes the problem; I can’t find them. Yes, I get lost!

My soul, will never be found hopeless; just a heart lost, in the moment. If you asked me years ago, could I have foreseen; finding my heart in a place like this? I would have said no, absolutely not. But it seems, a silent river has arrived; a predestined destiny, lost… within an ocean. The encounter, finding myself. A heart coming to know, what profoundly lost looks like. A heart in a good place. All my heart truly needs, all my soul is finding… being lost. In this place, it’s a heart full; the reason being fulfilled. I can bare my soul, expose what’s in my heart. But words, won’t explain being captured; within every captivating moment. Within a heart being grounded, a soul being truly free. You find yourself at a place, where you therefore have freedom; to explore what getting lost in love, truly means. A heart trying to articulate the love felt, in a heart moved to pen down… all that is heard. Words, I Get Lost!

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!

What I Owe!

Every breath, I owe You my life. You weren’t under any obligation, my debit You paid. The love You showed, why You’ve won my heart. Your love, the open invitation; make my heart, Your forever home. When darkness was the prison, grace was the key. Your love the light, shining on me. Independence, the day; Your love validated my worth. My heart, will never withdraw; let Your love be, the only redeemer. My soul made a vow, to press into You. No retreat, the value; in the surrendered. Your love painted the perfect picture, but only in the drawing closer. Can a heart truly see what was in the creation. A soul was created, to reflect the true color of love. The heart a masterpiece, painted by a deep crimson love. My heart became indebted, freedom was in a name. I don’t ever want to be in the black, knee deep in the red; under the canopy of love. Even if I don’t see it, love is… working. Building me up, moving; underneath every breath. Redeeming, that’s the quality. Profitable, what this love is. Faithful, what You are. Excess love, ever increasing; when my heart learned how to trust. My fundamental commitment, no emotional withdrawals, and never doubt the love!

Thank You, for letting my heart borrow against Your love. When it was a heart, deep in… borrowed time. Again and again, whenever my soul needed a friend; Your love never denied my heart. How can I ever repay, when the cost was so great? The price paid, the debt forever forgiven. You made the sacrifice, so my soul could truly be free… to thrive. Kindness, the undisputed currency. So much greater, than silver and gold. What I Owe, can never be repaid. Give me forever, to show a truly grateful heart. Like sand through an hourglass, time will fade. But not the moments, my heart, and Your love… gets to cherish. At the end of days, it’s a higher return; when the reciprocal, begets the return. The love, all my heart. All the passion within, all the accumulated desire; what I give back. A heart once bankrupt, from the choices made. Now in a place, positioned to go; from glory to glory. A heart in a place, where love is forever found, and mercy reigns. Tic, Tac, Whoo. Your love has positioned my heart, to forever be on the winning side… of greatness!

What I Owe, that my soul can define. But, my heart can’t seem to find the words; to make this be easily explained. It’s a conundrum, my soul calls this love a treasure. But my heart, knows it as such a priceless love; both equally true. I had options; invest, or live wild… but free? But my soul, didn’t want to miss out. It’s not about a prosperous future, but knowing the true… predestined destiny. My heart in a place, where fear has become absolutely powerless; in the here, and now. Within a river so deep, and so wide; within the endless overflow. Where you’re filled, with so much peace; hope forever found. Finding an overwhelming love again and again, and the depth untold. To know the breadth, and experience what it is. Where death has no hold, through an inherited release. Only, if my soul could truly put it into words? Truly come up with just one thing, to explain what my heart is struggling to articulate? Oh, that would be Amazing. So, where did I meet this extraordinary love; At the Cross. And, What I Owe, Everything… I am!

Water!

A love that flows, a love that reaches the deepest parts of the soul. Love deeper than a river, the depth beyond that of an ocean. A love that overwhelms, washing out what’s just seen. Real love is a thirst quencher, that satisfies a soul feeling parched; in a dry and thirsty land. When love is deeply felt, it’s a soul capsized into the bliss. A heart wanting to drown, within the moment. Love flooding the soul, the heart, gasping; trying to know how to breathe… it all in. To be breathless, within every tidal wave of emotion. When a heart knows real love, what can ever take its place? The overflow becomes the heart wanting, to know a deeper submergence. A soul breathing, a heart no longer living just on the surface. To have a deeper understanding, a heart needs to know how to define; what’s the right (shore, sure)? Where do you stand, when does the love; become the Water, you just can’t live without? Real love, is about weathering the stormy moments. A heart knowing, whether deeply is truly a soul thirsty; to embrace every treasured moments?

True love pours out, whether or not the rain falls… from your eyes. Tears, don’t mean love is losing. But it could be a moment to be lost, in the love. Sometimes in love, even with the tears running. Can turn into an endless river flowing, the love becoming even deeper. Those are the moment, that defines on What, and Where you truly stand? Love, will always require a deeper dive. For the true depth, to be a deep Water experience. A stream, without an overflow. Can still produce overflowing Water, if you don’t stop pouring into it; the love that it won’t be able to contain. It’s easy, to stomp out on sour grapes. When the moment, seems so distasteful. Choosing to make the heart a vessel, and pouring out the sweetest love possible. Can help each heart taste, how sweet the love can truly be. The love turning back, into Water. When the moment is a cup, feeling a little dry; fill it up, with new wine. So many say cross the bridge, when they get there. Only for the focus to be the bridge, and not the gap therein. Water under the bridge, can never truly be seen. If the focus, is not two heart swept away… by the love. When you pour out your soul, may God’s love be the Water… within!

A Father’s Love!

You can write a story, but it’s the heart that needs to be able to tell the moment; when it becomes a love story. A father’s love, it’s in the presence. Within the moments, when even a gentle whisper… speaks with such clarity. Even in the stillness, the love still so powerful. Everybody, should experiences A father’s love; but it’s not every heart that gets to know, The fathers love. Some thing change, but one thing should never change; a father’s love. Like every other heart, life starts with a birth; but it’s the love, that gives the heart such a story to tell. Some heart roams the earth, without a physical father; to help paint a lifelike picture. But, unbeknownst to my soul; my heart was capitalized by glimpses of love. A presence that hovered, the feeling was in the knowing; that love is a destiny. Predestined is the place, this heart of mine needed to find. A heart on a journey, when the love made itself known!

All my life, I’ve never needed a hero. All my heart ever needed, knowing my Heavenly Father. Ten feet tall, that wasn’t the feeling. Knowing how to stand tall, was learning how stand on His love. Not as just a pick me up, but trusting Him; to never let go of my heart. His love, what gives my heart a voice. His word, what speaks when my soul needs to know; His love will be forever… by my side. When my heart had so many questions, His love was always the answer. When the sky was blue, my heart could absolutely relate. When the days were dark, my soul knew His love was the light; that eclipses all my heart was feeling. A love my soul can Completely trust, and my heart Never has to question. Even when my love kept changing, trying to understand true worth; His love never changed. But now, It’s my love that’s changing; it’s growing… deeper. I depended on my daddy’s love, and it doesn’t matter how old I get. I will always, need the father’s love. Especially when, the silent river wasn’t just lonely; but when not feeling loved, was what felt so cold!

The way He fathered, was in the way He loved. The strength I have, not because I’m strong. A brave heart, when you truly know the power… of a father’s love. “His love makes everything okay, even when everything… doesn’t seem okay.” The love touches my heart, my soul knows the breadth; my heart cries. A love so big, so strong. Yes, He’s got my whole heart, in Your hand. Upon my lips, His name everlasting. When my heart needed to know, loved. Father, I love You. This story, not about my life; it’s all about Your love. There’s no me, without You. I needed You yesterday, my heart needs You today; tomorrow, my soul will need You for sure. When I lay me down to sleep, my soul Your love keeps; Your heart, forever the resting place. Daddy, when I grow up; I want to be Just Like You. A man, after Your own heart!

The Script; Book, Chapter, and Verse!

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!
