“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. A people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness, into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9 ESV
When you’re going through the rough times, even when your heart is living in the good times; get down on it. I’ve spent many nights wondering, spent many days pondering; what should I do? So many times I told myself, God will see me through. My heart believed it, my soul even knew Faith was the Substance. Using Hope to steady the heart, that’s what you do. Music was a real source of healing, my soul would endlessly dance; like David danced. When God’s love truly got a hold of my heart, tears started to flow; joy down in my soul. All my heart wanted to do, get down on it!
It doesn’t matter, how many people think you’re crazy. It doesn’t matter, how strong the haters may seem. God is sovereign strong; even Goliath, had to fall. God will use your enemies as your foot stool; every day, get down on it. Even if you’re walking through the valley, there’s no need to be scared. Never let your heart be a slave to fear, shadows; will never bring death. God is the life, the love, the light; that shines the brightest within the darkness. Let His love hold your every breath. Let your life start, and end with Him; get down on it!
Sound moves the spirit, praise and worship stirs up God’s love. When a heart sings of God’s love, it will move God’s heart. My heart has come to trust in God’s love a long time ago, not because I had abundant faith; but a strong belief, that I will forever need God’s love. Not just to survive within the shadows, but thrive; while going through the valley. Like most of us, my life has been filled with anger; lots of disappointments. But you couldn’t pay me a million dollars, to abandon the idea; of true hope. I could have never made it to this point, within the journey called life. Without God’s love, guiding my heart through the wilderness; giving my sometimes weary soul, true joy and rest. So friends, Get Down On It; but Stay Down on it, until you get your breakthrough!
“Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us; from the evil one.” Matthew 6:9-13 NLT
When you’re lost, when the teardrops blinds your heart; keep your eyes. When the feeling isn’t fuzzy, when the vision of love is a bit hazy; keep your eyes. When your heart wants to see a perfect picture of love, but what you see seems so blurry; you can’t even recognize a true masterpiece. Even with all your flaws, you’re still a perfect reflection; of the creators amazing love, keep your faith. You don’t need eyes to see, just faith to believe; keep your eyes!
When everything seems fragile, when every step feels like glass. A broken prospective, can still be glass half full; keep your eyes. It’s not always easy feeling loved, wanting to show love when you’re hurting; not easy. Underneath the skin, beyond all that lies between. Within the heart, deep down within the soul; true beauty lies. Going above and beyond, to show a genuine kind of love; leaves a lasting impression, keep your eyes!
When you can’t see no signs, that the sun even exist. When you’re lost within the dark, there’s a light that shines; to show your heart a way home. When you feel burned out, when you can’t even see a flicker; there a light of hope. Within the valley of shadows, grace abounds. Sinner or Saint, what forever stays the same; we’re still only human. It’s Jesus’ love, that picks up the pieces; left shattered from a broken world. Jesus says, Keep Your Eyes; On Me!
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor, has come. ” Luke 4:18-19 NLT
My eyes are preparing to see a new year, but as for me and my heart; it’s another opportunity, to celebrate My God. Through the years, His love has brought my heart through many ups and downs. My soul has journeyed, finding His love; has been the journey. 2018 marks my fiftieth year, but it truly feels; the journey has just begun. For me, the strength of God’s love began; not when I was at my weakest. But when my heart forever knew, how to celebrate His greatness. The Savior of the world, the giver of salvation; My God. His love is the place my heart goes, when I need to hide from the rain. The place my soul resides, when the rain becomes a storm. My heart is kept within the valley; a love that is my provider, protector. A love that has become, my favorite hiding place; My God is!
My God is a way maker, a miracle worker, a promise keeper; the light in the darkness, that’s who My God is. My God wipes away every tear, mends broken hearts; a love that meets your every need. His love touches every life, a love that turns lives around; My God is the answer to it all. His love touches my heart, forever nestled up against my soul. A love working within my life, that’s My God. The world can shout down my beliefs; but they can never silence my heart, or disparage my soul. Because My God is awesome, His love forever reigns. He is great, and He should be greatly praised. He deserves my Hallelujah; My God!
“You are my God, and I will praise you! You are my God, and I will exalt you! Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.” Psalms 118:28-29 NLT
Now, now is the day; today is the new. We are approaching a new year, but let’s not forget; today is also a new day. Celebrate, that you got to see a new; celebrate each and every, celebrate the new. Today is the day, to see the new; to see a new thing. Let your heart see, let your heart, behold; God is doing a new thing. Embrace today as a new, no need to wait; for a new year!
Make a resolution within your heart, that you will allow your soul to forever embrace; the new. God is ready to do, something new. See the new day in a different light, open up your heart each day; the new has already begun. You may not always see, you may not always want. But in order to move mountains, you always need to believe!
There’s a path through the chaos, can your faith truly see? That there‘s a river, within the desert; of every parched soul. Now, now is the day; today is the new. Awaken your heart, stretch, work out, exercise; your faith, and beliefs. Clothe yourself within the new, walk on faith; God’s love will be the path, to show you the way!
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 NLT
My heart was dirty, my soul was in tatters. But Your heart, Jesus Your heart saw clean; Your love fixed what needed mending, a dirty rag. My glass half empty thinking, shattered; my theology, broken. God’s love restores my broken faith, piece by piece; a soul once dead, in Christ lives again. The beating heart within my chest, alive with a destination; deeper!
When all we see is imperfections, through Christ; God sees them as beautiful. When we feel we’re not worthy, Jesus shows us; that it was never about being worthy, but about being loved. When we stumble, and even when we fall; we may think that we’ve once again become too dirty. But Jesus’ love will help us believe, that the dirt is still washed away; we’re still clean!
Our dirty rags; washed, scrubbed, cleaned, purified. God’s love is forever washing; our hearts, forever washed within His sacrifice. Cleansed by His Amazing Grace; Mercy, is what forever makes us clean. Jesus, there’s nothing too dirty; no sin, that Your love can’t make clean. We may not be worthy, Thank You, Jesus! Our heart has been washed; um, forever made clean!
“Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God.” 2 Corinthians 7:1 NLT
I’ve not only seen, but felt a love; full of so much Style, and Grace. A love that draws you in, a love so well put together; a love that captives your heart. A love that has taught my soul so much, not about just social graces; but about truly living, only because of Grace. My heart has searched, the world has tried to entice; but my soul got an early taste of heaven. My heart became full, Grace was truly enough. The things of this world, has truly lost its tasteful flavor. Jesus, unveil my heart to see; that there’s nothing truly greater, than His love. My heart is now hidden within God’s Grace. Being styled and fashioned, to look more like His perfect love!
These days my heart is not one to chase after the material, I have a love; that relentlessly chases after my heart. I’m no longer enamored, with all of the propped up distractions. They may have style, but very few; truly knows what it is, to be graceful. Most of it is surrounded by so much madness. My soul refuses to take on the madness, even if it’s socially acceptable. I’ve searched, surely looked. But I’ve found absolutely nobody greater, nothing to compare; to God’s Grace and Mercy. We all need air for our hearts to live, but all hearts need Grace. Just so our hearts can truly know, how to be forever alive; through God’s redemption plan!
Jesus, a heart You will never take, without promise; but Your love You first freely gave, before a heart even started asking. Your love is what my heart is now styling; Your Grace, what forever clothes my soul. Let Your love be the reputation, on display within my hearts glow. So many people, believe that they can outrun God’s love, with style. But ultimately all the truly end up doing, is running straight into God’s Grace. The mercy our hearts truly don’t deserve, but for those who have stopped running; Your love becomes the overwhelming Grace. I know I need it, my heart knows it’s truly worth it. Jesus, Your love is truly the real thing; that All hearts, should gracefully embrace!
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT
