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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
