The Move!

First, there was a move, but then; the move started to become so constant. Over time, the move became a shift. At first it was truly glorious, but over time it seemed as if the glory; became us, not thus… I could feel it, my heart could absolutely recognize it. But sometimes, all I could say about it; was that I felt it. The move, was becoming a constant shift; but my heart was not always ready, to be moved!

Even within the stillness, the move was still a shifting; my heart still needed to be moved. Now, I just can’t help it; even if I tried, I couldn’t even prevent it. This love moves the stillness within, all my heart can do; is to enjoy the rhythm, within every heartbeat. There it goes again, another move; the shift, is what keeps my heart vertical. God, Your love just won’t stop, making my heart skip a beat!

I don’t want my ears to just hear, teach my heart to constantly listen. I don’t want to just see, give my heart the vision. So others can see, that my heart moves; because Your love is the breath. Each breath I breathe, moves my lungs; but let the words within my heart, reveal the breadth of Your love. It doesn’t even bother me, if I can’t recognize the man in the mirror; from the constant shifting. What would truly trouble my soul, is that You could not truly recognize my heart; because I refused to be moved!

How can I truly be used to move others to act, if my own heart is indifferent; to a world that needs to know. That the time has come, to embrace a love that truly moves; but will shift; your heart!

The Texture of a Man!

Love, joy, faithfulness; essences, that coats my soul. But are these the things, that reveals a true loving heart; what do You call, the texture of a man? If they are, then my heart knows; how to show true love. Over the years I’ve been called many things, a machine, a robot. None of that is impressive, it sure doesn’t impress me; it definitely doesn’t reveal, the true texture of a man!

My heart is locked within a gaze, anchored in a love. The anchor that holds, is gripped to a solid rock. Some hearts think they’re smooth like satin, and try to use words that appear soft as silk. At the end of the day, all that doesn’t mean anything. That will never be the right answer, that will never define; the texture of this man!

A man has different elements, don’t let your heart; look like a closely knit synthetic, show the real texture. It’s not about the clothes you wear, new, new, flashy flashy? A fancy pants can be flashy, but what is the true texture. Telling your country of origin, doesn’t tell anyone how you’re truly made; a texture of a man, is not made by a country. A man can never be made, a man has to become; then forever display, the texture of a man!

The texture of a man is not measured by how romantic he is. A dozen flowers is a romantic gesture, but so many hearts seem to wither. Anyone can admire an outward beauty, when the appearance seems so captivating; but can they truly appreciate, that it is still the same flower? I don’t strive to be romantic, to most it’s just a passing feeling. I have chosen to be a heart, that knows how to be forever faithful. Longevity, is a true texture; found within a long lasting commitment!

Feelings will pass, appearance may wither. The consistency, more than just on the surface, but the true substance within. Can you tell the texture by a touch, go beyond the surface; don’t let what defines, be just skin deep. Don’t get hung up on the feelings; it’s the character, the lasting qualities. The very fabric of your being, is the very thread; that determines, the true texture of a man!

Maybe Tomorrow?

Maybe tomorrow, that’s what we so often say; but what about today? Are we so forward thinking, that we forget about; the here, and now? Every day we get, is truly a blessing; but the true gift, is that you got to see today!

Don’t just watch the beautiful bird as they fly, don’t try to count all the stars in the sky; don’t just let life pass you by, thinking what about tomorrow. Take hold of today, but don’t hold on too tight; save some love for tomorrow!

Yes, we all want a tomorrow, but first, let’s cherish our today. Jesus said, it’s He who supplies all your needs. Take His hand today, let His love be your tomorrow; let His joy be what your heart needs today, and every other day. Laugh and play, continue to say; you look forward to tomorrow. Just don’t forget about what you have, maybe just today!

Maybe tomorrow, a day you may not get to see; don’t put off what you can do today. Take today, the day you know you have been given. You never know what the future brings. Tomorrow is never promised; Today is your day, to let your light shine!

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭NIV‬‬

LIEBSTER AWARD!

I would like to thank Stuart L. Tutt @ stubaby777.wordpress.com for nominating me for my first Liebster Award. Stuart nominated me a couple of months ago, it very difficult for me to participate. For those who have nominated me for an award, I will try to post when it is possible! Now about Stuart, he has a wonderful heart, and blog; with content that’s real, and down to earth. Don’t hesitate to visit, and follow!

The Liebster Award is an opportunity for bloggers to recognize and support other bloggers for their achievements. It’s geared towards blogs with smaller viewership. The Liebster Award is available from January 1 – December 31, 2018; All nominations are voluntary!

Here are the answers to Stuart’s questions;

Q1) Besides the Bible what is your favorite book you have ever read?

A) Don’t read anything right now other than the bible. Not because I don’t want to, my schedule just doesn’t allow. I have about a dozen books on my tablet, and I’m hopping to get to them in the near future! One book that absolutely loved as a child; Call of the wild, by Jack London!

Q2) What, in your opinion, is your greatest achievement in life?

A) I have two things, they are not achievements; but my greatest joy. Knowing that God thought that I was worthy enough to be called His own, and knowing that He had a wife; a life partner He chose to spend my days on earth with. It’s been thirty three getting to know His love, thirty two years getting the opportunity to love her heart; the blessings my heart has known!

Q3) What is your reason for blogging?

A) To share my love stories. To encourage, perhaps change a few minds, influence hearts; with a word, placed within my heart!

Q4) What is the best advice you have for newer bloggers?

A) My advice is always the same; take hold of today, tomorrow was never truly promised! Take hold of your heart, don’t ever worry about the battles you face. True strength can forever be yours, when you realize that true strength comes from the courage within. To face the battles of life, with your God given strength; the heart of a worrier!

Q5) If you could change anything in the world, what would it be?

A) I would change how we (humans) treat each other, we’ve all been created equal. Let’s live with one goal, to be the humanity; we were created to be!

Q6) Do you color with crayons or markers?

A) Crayons as a child, a marker is what I would hand out to everyone; so we can all leave a lasting mark on the world!

Q7) Besides Jesus, who is your favorite biblical figure?

A) That would have to be David, a man after God’s own heart; that my desire. His life wasn’t perfect, but he truly loved God; with his whole heart!

Q8) Who or what makes you yearn to be a better person than you were yesterday?

A) I’ve been yearning for as long as I can remember. I’ve learned much, but still learning that there’s still so much more. I strive to be better, but better is still not good enough; when you’re still yearning, to be so much more!

Q9) When you go out on the town, what is your attire?

A) It’s been years since I’ve gone out of town, but it would be; semi casual as the least!

Q10) If you have children, where is your favorite place to take them?

A) My kids are all in their twenties, but when they were younger; we used to go to Florida every summer!

  • Great questions, I have a question for you Stuart?

Would you want to be so wrapped up within God’s love, that it would forever take your breath away?

OR

So free, that your heart felt like it was free falling; into the depth of God’s love. Not being able to catch your breath, but knowing; His love, is the only thing that can make you breathe?

  • Just something to Stu over my brother!

My Gaze, Becomes You!

How can I truly fix my eyes on the beauty I see, when my heart is forever fixed; upon the true beauty, I see within Your love? My eyes will forever gaze upon the outward beauty, but I will forever fix my heart; on that which the true beauty lies. The beauty within Your love, has forever captured my imagination; but the beauty within Your heart, became my every gaze. As I now endlessly gaze into Your heart, my soul will still be fixed; upon the foreverness within Your love. Forever be charmed, I’m sure!

I absolutely must tell You this, I just can’t seem to even help but to notice; that the beauty which emanates from within Your heart. Has become the very same beauty; that is now ever before every single glance, of my love. So if my lips fail to utter the words, that will truly encapsulate the beauty within. Just know, Your love is the one thing; that speaks volumes to my heart. Your love has forever loosened the words, that has for so many years; tried to bind up my heart. The You I feel, is the You; that gives my heart a glee!

My heart can now clearly utter every word, articulate every single syllable; I want nothing left unsaid, from the depth of my soul. Even this strong, but silent type; still needs to be bold, with his big boy words. Especially, when his heart now has so much to say; as a man. So therefore, I will never stop admiring Your beauty; with a loving heart. But also never ever forgetting to speak, the words that are forever etched; upon the tip of my heart. So what say You, is it the same as what say I? Has my heart truly become Your forever love, because Your heart has always been; my forever love. I will keenly gaze upon Your love, peer deeply into Your heart. My gaze, has truly become; YOU!

Closer!

Come closer, I love how Your presence makes my heart skip a beat. Closer, no closer; Stop. Any closer to my heart, Your love is sure to set my soul on fire. I know what the problem is; if you come any closer; my heart would surely be consumed, by Your love. But go ahead, draw me closer; let Your fire consume, from head to toe. I can feel Your love burning, it must be out of control. Raging, that’s the love within; consumed, that’s becoming my soul. Your love, the fire; the burning desire deep within!

Just like a moth to a flame, without further hesitation; draw my heart closer. Let Your presence, be what consumes my heart; overwhelm my mind. My love can be found in You, my heart; will forever be part of Your love. But yet, I want it even closer; until my heart is completely Yours. So, come closer, closer; stop, that’s close enough. The next step, is for my love; to come up higher. To get closer to Your heart, my soul therefore needs to be forever consumed; by one thing, Your love!

Jump Up!

It’s August, here in Toronto; it’s Caribbean carnival weekend, Soca fever. This message is not about Soca fever, but how to get soaked; by a forever rain. Winey winey, stop whining; even if it’s just a tiny whiny. Whining will never bring your heart closer to true love. It comes from truly seeking, to know a forever reign; within your heart!

There is power in the name of Jesus, to break every chain. Ask Him to open the flood gate, in abundance. To make it rain, to let the soaking rain fall; to feel forever drenched, within the reign!

Take your hand out of your pocket, and wave. Get a rag, if your heart can feel the heat. Wave the white rag, feel the sweet surrender; let your heart truly feel the rain. Wave the rag like you just don’t care, who sees; jump up jump up, and praise!

Like I said my friends, I’m not here to preach; just to share my heart. There’s nothing wrong with jumping up, as long as you remember; to keep your heart grounded. I was born in the Caribbean, so I know what is the jump up fever. As a teen, a friend wanted me to come with him to a carnival; my one and only. My heart had been called, to do the jump and praise. So the only jump up I do; is when it’s time to jump up, and praise the Lord!

“Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp. For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭149:3-4‬ ‭NIV‬‬
