I woke up, it was next to you. Watched you sleep for a moment, kissed you gently, tenderly; I didn’t want to wake, a sleeping angel. So, I rolled out of bed; I had a role to play. Man, what a pleasure; to provide love for your heart. Said a prayer, got dressed; brushed my teeth second. I wanted the kiss upon my lips, to stay with me; forever and a day. Still thinking about the kiss, I slowly headed to the kitchen. With every step there was a resounding echo within my soul; love was the song upon my lips. My heart just kept humming the favorite part; I have nuff love for you!
When I got to the kitchen I had a wonderful breakfast, it was the kiss that made it much sweeter; the sugar I got from my sweet… tea. It took me a while to focus my gaze; off the kiss, and onto the newspaper. As I was checking the lottery section; I realized that we won ten million dollars. So I left the house, and went to go pick up our winnings. On the way I stopped, I had to rescue a cat stuck in a tree. Then a few more minutes down the road, there was a house on fire; with a woman screaming, please save my baby. Without giving it a second thought, I ran straight into the house; rescued the baby. I gently placed the baby into mother’s arms, she thanked me. Then lovingly hugged and kissed the baby, it was such a loving embrace. Tears, and awe; what a sight to behold, we were surrounded by guardian angels!
I finally reached the lottery office, picked up the winnings. It was more money than we would ever need, so I decided to use half of it; to help eradicate world hunger. Some were donated to charity, some used to help discover a cure for Cancer. What was left, just enough to pay the bills; what more do I truly need? Mohammad Ali heard about what was done, he invited me to his home. Thanked me and said, you’re The Greatest. I quickly stopped him, deflected; told him that I don’t hold such a title. There’s nothing great, or impressive about my heart. I looked to the heavens, pointed; to Him who is truly The Greatest. The Amazing Love, that has no contender; a heart, Undisputed!
When I got back home later that day, I kissed my wife; told her all about my day. I said, Wow; what a truly Amazing Day! All because; I WOKE UP, AND IT WAS NEXT TO YOU!!
The first paragraph is part of my day, the stories in the following; are things that if the opportunity presented itself, exactly how I would approach them! Life is short, it’s not what you do each day that’s makes a person; but who makes your heart, thrive!
Good, good Father, You have been so good. Before we ever took a breath, before we even knew what it was; to truly breathe. Your love was, Your love is; the living breath within our heart. Even when our love was a foe, Your love still fought for us. Even when our love spoke against Your heart, You still spoke so much love; into our hearts. Even when our hearts couldn’t sing, Your love was the song; the love song that sang over our soul. A love so Kind, a love Never-ending; a love truly Undying. A love that will never stop caring, for our hearts; How He Loves!
When we were unworthy, You loved. When we, were distant; You loved, to be so close. You loved us deeply, a love that we can never repay; a love that paid it all. A love that leaves the ninety-nine, just to pursue one heart. No mountain You won’t climb, no wall You won’t kick down. No lie of the enemy, You won’t tear down. No valley You won’t enter, no shadow Your love won’t light up; in pursuit of our soul. Your heart calls, Your love knows our names. From our mother’s womb, we have been chosen; predestined, How deep Your love goes!
There’s no greater love than this, and it’s so Beautiful. A love that sets our soul forever free, a love that leaves our heart forever in awe. There’s nothing to do to earn it, we don’t truly deserve it. The truly overwhelming part, He had to die; just so we could even get to know it. You gave Yourself away, with outstretched arms; You showed us Your heart. How absolutely Ridiculous, how utterly Reckless. But that’s the Awesome love of God, How He loves!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” John 3:16-17 ESV
Our treasure, God’s glory within; a forever love, written upon our hearts. His presence is always there, hovering; does your heart recognize His love? God’s love meets us, at our point of need; let the need forever be, needing His love. Being born again, means a change of heart and mind; a forever soul transformation. The breath within your lungs, the love within your heart; pour it out in praise. Upon the beautiful Savior, onto Jesus Christ; our living hope. The treasure within, our Jars of Clay!
Our survival, our dependence, our experiences. When you’re feeling all alone, when you look back at your life; feeling that you have not truly accomplished your true purpose. Just know this, God’s love breathes within; taking your heart from glory to glory. Every situation you face, prepares your heart for a predestined encounter; face to face with God. In spite of your brokenness, in spite of your weakness. God, brings us to where He is (within His glory); to meet us where we are. Let the love mold your mind, let the love transform your heart from within; your Jar of Clay!
Growing up I never had a father to help guide my way, but growing up I had a Daddy; that loved me enough, to guide my heart. Looking back, I realized that God was the Father; the love my heart was clinging to. My heart was predestined, His love taught my soul right from wrong. When I felt all alone, His love kept me on the straight and narrow. His love, His heart; forever my treasure. His love is what‘s now being poured out, endlessly from within; my Jar of Clay!
“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;” 2 Corinthians 4:6-9 ESV

“And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:22-24 ESV
Love, an action word, a heart decision; the sensible choice. Even when the planets don’t align, even when the stars don’t twinkle the same. Look into your own heart, see if a faithful love; shimmers through and through. Love, complex truly is the feelings; what’s truly simple, faithfulness to be the response. Love doesn’t need to be an artistic creation, no need to revel in poetic justice; forgiveness, the way to be… happy. So many intelligent minds, have used sound logic; to outsmart their own hearts. The logistics of love at times might be complicated, but love will always flourish; with true growth. Chase after, if that’s the desire; but when the chase has lost a little luster. Don’t let commitment be the fear, but the motivation!
Love doesn’t need to be studied, like an unsolved mystery. Mysteries of the heart are revealed, when the application of love becomes practical. So many spend too much time admiring it, but from a safe distance. To engage in a meaningful way; is to get up close, and personable. But don’t miss the how to, live, love; one day at a time. From time to time you will slip up, but that’s the time when you also step up. In love sometimes you need to know how to discern, how to be delicate; understanding, patient. Love is thoughtful, realistic, balanced, pragmatic; within a sound heart. Love matures, love becomes wiser. I myself have experienced one true land-mind, a foolish heart!
Love has many emotions, up and down are just directions; it’s up to you and your heart, to choose which path to take? Love is not just a feeling, love is an experience; felt first within your heart. How can you truly say you love another, if you haven’t yet worked out within your own heart; The Reason, and what that means to you? So laugh, cry; reflect on each nostalgic moment. Sappy love songs, #Now And Forever; can help bring hearts closer together. But love needs to be defined, by the why; your heart first made the choice? Choose to stay in love, let true Love be; The Reason!
I hope everyone enjoyed this special week of posting, Sunday I got back to my 4 day a week post. Have a wonderful weekend!
It doesn’t take bravery to love, true courage is choosing to stay; in love, come what may. Boldness will move a heart forward, but faithfulness is what makes the love forever. Stand up against fear… of commitment, it’s not about resistance. Sometimes the line gets blurred, and we lose sight of what we’re truly resisting; sometimes love is what gets caught in the middle. When sorrow tries to steal the joy, when division comes creeping; make sure the love is never shaken. Don’t let fear get a hold, let forever be the bond; never broken!
Strength of character, takes bravery. Fear will never stand a chance, when the fight to resist; is not within your heart. Choosing to love forever, is not an act of valor. So many say their love is fearless, but when the struggle gets too real. Strength to stand on your commitment, becomes the first characteristic; a yielding heart abandons. True Love doesn’t yield to fear, but stands its ground; fortified by the bond. Fortitude, determination; the boldness to take a stand. It takes faith to steady the heart, but boldly stand; upon the love!
