What Matters!

These days, there’s so much trying to demand; the attention of your heart. Oppression, Depression, Opposition; what can sometimes wage war, against your heart. The struggle is reality, but God… all power. Every day, let your soul breath… in that reality. Let your heart embrace, that hope never fails. So many think, to keep from becoming a victim, to resist; formulate a mind over matter defense. One part hope, two parts wishful thinking; and top it off, with whatever feels good… at the moment. With that kind of formula, no wonder why so many minds… are devastated. When they realize; it was a Heart Matter, a search within… for the strength to overcome. The battlefield is the mind, but war first won within the heart; to fight, or give in?

The struggle for supremacy; between heart and soul. Some believe, all you need is the will to resist; but still lack the power within… to truly overcome. So many try to equip themselves with mental toughness, but forget to equip their heart… with What truly Matters. A belief system, not easily penetrated by someone else’s doubts… within themselves. That just cast a shadow, on your ability to shine. So many pat themselves on the back, believing they’re exercising so much… restraint. Telling you how to get a grip, while chained to a lie. You can have true hope, without the faith component. You can think you can, but the heart still needs to believe… you will.

Defend your soul against a ruthless attack, trying to put fear in your heart? While trying to destroy your hope, by wiping out your resolve; that faith begets hope. The battles are won, not by just deploying a good strategy; but within the execution, of unwavering faith. You can build up the best defenses, only to have them turn into barriers. To display the true heart of a warrior, gird your courage… so it never wavers. Wars are won, not because every battle is an outright victory. What Matters; you kept on fighting, you never gave up… the fight. Don’t rely on just will power, strength is found within your courage. But you have to keep the faith, and hope alive!

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth. Does not become tired, or grow weary; There is no searching of His understanding. He gives strength to the weary, and to him who has no might; He increases power!” ISAIAH 40:28-29 AMP

A Thank You Letter!

Where do I start, from my perspective; when my heart began, isn’t where the love started. There was a birth, but breath isn’t what gave my soul life. I can breathe, but the true breadth; within a true depth of love. I am loved, but loved is what I am. The thief that comes to steal; lack of thanks, and a grateful heart. Every day I give thanks, but every day; I will live a thankful life. Live the promise, live faithful within all the promises; my promise to You. When I say Father, only one love can answer. The only Father, my heart has ever known. When I say Dad, only one heart answers. A Daddy, never hesitating to give my heart… unconditional love. When I say God, my heart and soul knows only one!

Thank You, for what Your love has meant for my heart. For all the blessings, a wonderful wife and family. Stuff, to make a heart absolutely full, and so overwhelmed. All my life, Your love has been so faithful. Your love, is so so good. You are the Father, Your love forever being a best friend. I live in Your goodness, as a Daddy’s love should be. Thank You, for being all one in the same; completely all I need. Darkness can’t outshine the glory. Unbelief can’t make the glory disappear. Time, will never change the glory. Loud over bearing hearts, can’t suppress the glory truly means. One thing remains; what was, still is. Now, always, and forevermore; Your love will forever reign, within my heart and soul!

Song Inspired; Through Your Eyes!

Get it together, if we could achieve it on our own; Your death was in vain. But yet, hearts have to first get it; Your love needs to be our everything. Through You I know love, but through Your love; how I live, how I take my every breath. Every day, it’s a daily walk; but every step we take, through the grace given. So many hearts are trying to live life, but in the end… was it a life lived? They say in life, to get by you need to keep your head down; push through. If we all bought into that concept, hearts would still be bankrupt; grace forfeited. Life starts and ends, through Your love. I now know, that you have to lift your eyes; to let the soul see… the salvation. Then hold your head up… high, to bask forever in the afterglow!

True living, is not about keeping score. That will never equate, to true freedom. Some think it’s noble to forgive, but yet the double talk; say never forget, remember the score. How can a heart truly be free, if it’s only the eyes… that is used to see? Fool me once, fool me twice; there’s no shame, living by a different set of heart rules. When the mind needs to remember, who took the heart for a ride? It’s probably an indication, of a heart embraced by too much pride. Open the heart, so the mind can be truly free. There are so many lies in this world, so many hearts have theirs on a layaway plan. You may have bought into it, but don’t let your heart be what got sold. The price has already been paid, so a soul can know its worth. There’s so much beauty, within a compassionate heart!

Father, it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks. You’re not looking for perfection, just a faithful heart. In Your love, where a soul finds true freedom. True fulfillment, is not in seeking after perfection. If we just learn to close our eyes to the seen; open our heart to the unseen, Your love is what enlightens the soul. Beauty seen in our flaws, imperfections seen as beauty; if we can just see beyond the lies. To quote the heart of one of Your children, who has learned this truth in their life. “To thrive, is a soul truly free.” A simple, but such a powerful truth… worth repeating. Through the veil, there is a beautiful exchange. Through the veil, a picture of a heart pure is seen. Through the veil, the bride is adorned… with such grace. An extravagant love, encapsulated within a breathless awe. Through Your eyes, a heart can only wonder; what beauty does Your heart behold? Father, may we all truly learn how to see ourselves; Through Your Eyes! #God Of The Second Chance!

Moving!

So, let me try to unpack this, with show and tell. About a heart always on the go, a soul that knows how to press through. The move sometimes heavy. Not from baggage, not even from people who just want to put; your heart in a box. I can handle the weighty labels, and I will do my best to keep my family. From being labeled as anything… but strong; reinforced by the love of the creator. Society says to them, to get to the other side, of any situation; just keep it moving. As if that all a heart will ever need to do, but when you unpack it; life isn’t that easy. Everyone knows how to take a breath, but not everyone knows how to truly breathe. Every breath gives life, but even just breathing; can be difficult for so many!

Forward thinking, can help a mind stay a step ahead in life; but looking up, where hope is found. Getting to the next level, needs faith… to believe. Sometimes you just need to ask your heart; “who’s moving in, what’s breathing out?” We tend to focus our attention on the mortgage, the rent; the buying and selling. Everything in the world definitely has a price tag, but the question is this; “do you know the true sacrifice, and who paid the ultimate price?” That’s how a soul truly knows, how to look forward to a brighter day. The flesh can get weary, but the heart of a warrior; doesn’t let the mind dictate… where true strength is found!

Tired, doesn’t have to mean defeat. Overwhelmed, doesn’t mean won’t overcome. Broken, doesn’t have to mean shattered. Fragile, doesn’t need to mean; what’s inside is easily broken. A label, doesn’t define the resilience… packed within a heart. Whenever the glue seems to be coming undone, and the sticky side just won’t adhere. Don’t ever believe, the labor of love is in vain. When the love for, needs a refortification; between heart and soul. Regroup, reapply with a little more vigor; then go and conquer, your own doubts. During any move, the cupboard can look a little bare. But that doesn’t have to mean, that your heart doesn’t know how; to make the blessings overflow, this is a move!

So many things these days are breakable, but for me never the bond. Between my Daddy’s love, and my heart… it’s a forever hold. His love is the movement, that carries my heart, the wind that lifts my soul… to higher heights. For years my heart has been on a journey. Forever on the move, and always in a forward momentum. Along the way, Me, Myself, and I; have learned the art of, departmentalize. I’m not one to worry, my heart finds it a futile activity. Instead, I trust, and will forever believe; in the love that moves me. I can say with every certainty, without a shadow; His love is why, my heart is moving. And knowing His heart, why my soul is… forever Moved!

Song Inspired; Fight Song!

It might be just a small faith, in a sea of so much eMotion. You don’t need a boat load of hope, for a heart to stay afloat. Just the anchor, that keeps a soul from drowning. Even though the tears are an ocean, and every breath another tidal wave. Even though your hear, seems so far out into the blue. Tears, don’t mean your soul is losing. Seeing a wreak, doesn’t mean hope is lost. The mind might be closed off, just leave the heart open… to hear you are loved. May your soul find strength, in the midst of the stillness. When your heart finds the quietness, let your soul listen for a whisper… of love. May your soul know true peace, proof that you will be okay; that your heart will go on. It might be a fight, just trying to keep it together; but hope is never lost. Let love be the song, telling your soul that’s your fight song; that your heart will go on… beating!

When the tide seems to be raising, when the heart feels overwhelmed. When the feeling, is a heart in too deep. Knowing to what depth, never the problem. For a heart, that wants to love deeply. Staying submerged in a deeper love, what becomes the soul craving. A little darkness, doesn’t mean a fire isn’t burning. A little water, doesn’t mean the flame will ever stop raging. There is a voice, a song in the night. With power to let faith rise again, to turn every battle cry… into a victory. Just taking one step, one foot in front of the other. Shows you’re stronger, than you even know. Within the heart of a warrior… there a fight song. It doesn’t matter, what anyone else believes; your heart is a fighter. Even when it feels the fight within is gone, believe with heart and soul. Don’t lose heart, don’t let your soul lose sleep. You have a fight song, let God’s love sing your soul a lullaby. Shh, rest; go from strength to strength, glory to glory. You’re gonna be okay, a heart forever changed!

  • Fight song is a song by, Rachel Platten. We are midway into the month, and I have heard, or read about so many who are going through something. For all those fighting something, or feeling Pain because of someone? Cancer, Loss, Suicide, Chronic illness; this is dedicated to you. In this life we will have trouble, and even though we try to guard our hearts; some days it’s a fight. I pray within your heart you know, you never have to fight through it alone. God is there, in whatever becomes the overwhelming struggle!

Restoration!

Sand away the rough edges, chisel within a new heart of gold. Paint new with the color of love, with a love so amazing. Would your heart consider that to be, a true restoration? Hammer out the dents, smooth out the imperfections. Wax on, wax off; but it’s not about applying the right technique. For the love for to be truly restored, and a soul to truly shine bright. Don’t allow the love, to become lukewarm. A heart cannot shine to the original design, a full restoration cannot take place; if the love within… has waxed cold. The tear down of the walls, the demolition of what rots; the lies just beneath the surface. It’s never about the gut, but the heart restoration. No more dry rot, just good bones. A heart built new from the ground up, with love as the cornerstone. It’s not about building a house, but allowing the heart to become a home; for love to live in. Not by hard work, not by the material; but Grace, as the foundation!

What was broken, what seems in pieces; can again be restored. For there is a love, a love that is the true fix; a new heart, and a mind renewed. A heart was built to overcome, a soul meant to thrive. Hope found, is fear bound. What binds, forever broken; chains fall.. to pieces. Faith restored, strength renewed. What was stolen, what was taken by deception; will be replaced. Joy, peace, what a soul can truly know; in a true heart restoration. What was meant to be seen; a work of art, a portrait of love. Nothing missing, nothing broken. The picture, a restored masterpiece. Remade, into its original condition. The mission, show mercy, favor; reestablish the broken connection. The hearts of man, with the love of God. The restitution, the price paid; a new heart, a Restoration!

“After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace [who imparts His blessing and favor], who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you [making you what you ought to be]. To Him be dominion (power, authority, sovereignty) forever and ever. Amen.” 1 PETER‬ ‭5:10-11‬ ‭AMP‬‬ https://www.bible.com/1588/1pe.5.10-11.amp
