When the rudder seems broken, how does a heart; find its way, out of the darkness? What does a heart do, when the darkness is relentless; endlessly beating against your soul? Which way does a heart turn, when the waves are so fierce? How does a soul, absolutely lost; find its way? Trying navigate the dark, while trying to keep from drifting… off course? What does a heart do, when the rudder is utterly broken? On what can a heart forever hinge its hope, when the faith is under water? Hanging on, to such a thin piece of hope? Where does a heart anchor, the little hope it has? When it seems like the perfect storm; wants to capsize the soul?
Don’t Bow… to the pressure, forever hold Stern; to unwavering faith? When Port is on the other side, of a raging storm? When you’re scared, just trying to do you. When you’re desperately trying to fix, the holes withn your faith. The fix, don’t bail… on what you believe; let your peace be still. The awkward feelings, is when a heart is set apart; to be more than… ordinary. It’s perfectly okay, to not know the way; you just need to trust… your heart. I know sometimes, no matter what you do; it seems you’re getting nowhere. The devil is a liar, you’re not going to die; you have a destination. Shh, listen; God’s trying to tell you something!
Let God’s love, be the stabilizer. The love that takes control, let His love take the wheel. As far as the east is from the west, His love will never let your heart be… shipwrecked, His love is the lighthouse. Face the rudder, towards the brightest Star… board your confidence. On a new found hope, that your heart is finally heading in the right direction. Pivot your faith, vertical. Let His love steer your heart, into a new horizon. How you choose forever, point the rudder; in the right direction. Apply God’s love, to your hope in; His love will guide your heart. If you put His love in FIRST, your need in SECOND? Smooth sailing, into your forevermore; Sail On…
The Message; JOHN 3:16. For God so love…
In the beginning, there was a sound. A voice like a trumpet, resounding from the heavens. Let there be, and it was; The Light, casting away the darkness. Let there be, and there was; a vault. A sound hovering, over the surface of the deep. Let there be, and it was. A harmonious sound within the air, love moving within every breath. To let every imagination soar, a heart singing the sweet sound; the song of heaven. Sound off, one, two. Sound off, three, four. Sound off, five, six. Seven, the voice rested; everything sounded perfect. Love was resting, within the stillness!
We all have a sound, in each of us there is a song. A voice within, a love that should be heard. It’s not about a shout down, but how you rise up; every morning. To let the love within the new day rise. To let your heart take flight, upon the wings of a prayer. God it’s your breath, within our lungs; may we pour out the praise. With One voice, in harmony, in unison; forever. Peace, be still; to all the raging hearts. It’s the power of sound, but tune your hearts; until the pitch is perfect; good vibrations. When hearts are truly in tune, even the slightest whisper; emits a peaceful sound. This is a sound off, not a going off; without stopping to imagine the toll, from a hurtful tone!
Don’t blow a mind, help change a heart; with the rich sound of love. May love forever be, what truly resonates within. You can speak like an angel, but if it’s not grounded within a loving tone. It’s just a resounding gong, a clanging cymbal. Set it off, not with useless verbiage. But the sound of a heart forever changed, with a resounding vibrato. A strong, enriching tone. You’re truly richer, than you may even think. May we learn how to gently pull on a stringed instrument; the heart. A moment to prove, that you can distinguish the light; from the darkness? Within every moment, it’s another opportunity; to Sound Off… with love!
“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.” Genesis 1:2-4 NIV
The horizon, the perspective, the outlook; how a heart sets the hope. With faith as the compass, the love within as the rudder; what forever guides. Hope, the wind within your sails; taking your heart into a brighter tomorrow. When the rudder seems broken, and hope a bit tattered; don’t let your soul drift off course. When the darkness beats against your soul, and waves of emotions tries to capsize the heart; don’t let your soul get lost within the darkness!
We all have a destination, knowing how to navigate the heart; will indicate that you don’t just trust, in your own abilities. Every day a soul should set sail, to discover, to rediscover; a love that blows the mind. The scope, on how a soul truly discovers? It’s when the heart truly knows how rediscover; the true length and breadth, of God’s love. Set your heart on things above, but don’t ever let your heart get shipwrecked; heavenly minded, but no earthly good. Going up yonder, not so much about the place; but the journey. The here and now, where the heart truly learns; how to broaden the horizon!
PUT, LAY, STAND; Put your trust, Lay your burdens, Stand on the promises. How you should set your hope, a heart forever fixed on a love; beyond the moon and the stars. Write a story, but let God rewrite your story; every chapter, every verse. Let His love be the story, etched upon your heart; echoing within your soul. Choose wisely, but know how to be led. Make good decisions, even when the horizon seems unclear. Each dawn chart your path, set sail; but first Set your Hope, forever on God’s love!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:3-4 ESV
Grace, you show such love; more love than a heart truly deserves. Billions of hearts have experienced, but not can articulate; how truly amazing. A love undeserved, but my soul is forever grateful. Grace, why did you move toward me? Why does your love continue to move me, with such love unwavering love? So Grace, please tell me this? Grace, can you please answer me this? Excepting Your love, seems so simple; without even a question. What used to be the truly complicated thought, for me and my heart; why do you love me so?
Grace, Your love is a treasure; more precious than silver and gold. A love so close to my heart; so beloved, forever cherished. Grace, your love blows the mind, a heart overwhelmed by the sheer presence. Your love, bring tears to the eyes. No words, can adequately express your worth; a beauty beyond compare. A love so stunning, absolutely breathtaking; filled with so much mercy. When you found me, I was lost; broken. My eyes were wide open, but a heart so blind. The darkness that hovered over the surface of my heart was great, but Grace; Your love was so much greater!
Grace, Your love has set billions of hearts free. How my heart is forever grateful, You’ve been so faithful; a true companion for so many souls. Grace your love is powerful, strength for weakness.

“He is not here; He has Risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be Raised again!” Luke 24:6-7 NIV
You won’t Re-lent, even when our hearts hold back; Your love still won’t Re-lent. Our heart gets pulled in so many directions, but You won’t Re-lent; You want our hearts to be completely Yours. So demanding, a truly jealous love; Re-lentless, You want our whole heart. You don’t want this life, to ever quench the fire. So, may Your love forever be our burning desire. The passion that burns within, the love that consumes our heart. Our forever flame, the fire that completely sets our soul forever ablaze; a soul on fire. Your love won’t Re-lent, not until You forever have it all; our whole heart. Take it all, take our hearts, take our very souls; from glory to glory!
Preceding, to come before; a time to reflect. Not as a religious exercise, religion kills; the fire within. Each day is a time for growth; in a Re-lent-less pursuit, day after day. To position our souls, reposition the heart; forever centered, directly at the foot of Your love. Undistracted devotion, a heart truly devoted. Holding fast to faith, holding on to God’s unchanging love. Quality time within His presence, may our hearts forever rise; beauty from ashes. May our hearts never stop, never forget to praise The One, who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The greatest act of love, so much mercy; such boundless grace. God’s love will never abandon, He wants our whole heart. The lover of our soul, will never Re-lent!
“I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me!” Philippians 3:10-12 NIV
