It’s free, you just need to add the right ingredient. Not sure where to get it, where to find it; if you’re going to like it?

Rear View!

The past behind, a destiny before you. Sometimes, you need to take a quick look back. Get a clear view, to see how far your heart has come. Keeping a clear perspective, will make sure heart and soul; are both looking forward to the arrival. The rear view, requires just a momentary glance… at the heart. The focus, should always be the destination; where you’re ultimately to end up, and the end of the journey? Don’t get ahead of tomorrow, today will surely need your full attention. Just so, you don’t end up ditching; all your hopes and dreams. A heart off course, is a soul fixated on the shadows; reflections, of what once was. Broken doesn’t mean, you can’t reflect… your worth. Flaws, doesn’t mean a heart not predestined. For every heart, to get safely from A, to B… contented. Turn the endless pursuing of meaningless, to the relentless pursuit of meaningful. You never have to worry about, where the rubber meets the road. If the heart truly knows who, is truly in the driver’s seat? Shotgun, a heart trying to stay on the straight and narrow; but the disconnect, the soul just tagging along… for the ride!

A mirror, reveals what’s seen on the surface. But it’s the heart that does the true revealing, who you are on the inside. You can have a light that shines, but if it’s not the right kind of light? The soul can’t help the heart navigate, which way is true? Only to become a heart and soul, heading in the wrong direction. Seeing clearly, is not just recognizing what has been revealed; but seeing what changes, still needs to take place… within. Object in a mirror, are closer than they appear. Why, you constantly have to check the blind spots. Seeing, can sometimes be deceiving; if the receiving, isn’t part of what you’ve been truly believing. The blessings cannot overtake, if the heart doesn’t know; when the time has come to accelerate, the master plan. The journey, what takes the soul to a place… of true contentment. Along the way, there will always be obstacles. Applied faith, what makes the heart overcome. Tell anyone, that tries to get in your way; you can’t stop now. My heart, and soul is heading; up the Kings Highway. A Rear View, not to see what you’ve left behind; but see how far the heart and soul has come, on the journey called life!

Song Inspired; I’m Already There!

Child, in times of desperation; let faith be more than an anthem. Hope, more than just a word. When the moment seems hopeless, when the struggle is trying; to control your own heartbeat. When the battle, is a fight just to get through; a day gone so wrong. A heart once giddy, the heart of a child; weighed down by a word. Hopeless, a heart wondering. Will it again find Hope, or Less, of the faith you once knew? The hopeless, the state… of the mind; being truly determined, to let the heart truly lead the way. It’s a shifting of the heart, into a place; where you can truly see, it’s going to be okay. The move into being… still, to let your soul just listen, to the sound of love all around. Laugh out loud, let love be… the joy found. Tears, don’t mean a heart losing. Hopeless, just a place; where My love can always be found. When the day, becomes a world swirling; the moment feeling like a hurricane. When the day, feels like it’s a heart hopelessly; twisted… up in the wind. I’m alAlready There, before your heart cries!

I’m Already There, waiting; to be your everything, in a beautiful exchange. Don’t let the thought, that my love would want to engage my heart; mean I see you as hopeless. See a loving Father, wanting to be what you need. Early to rise, healthy, wealthy; wise, making my love the only choice. Make Hope a lifestyle, embrace my love for a lifetime. To be a heart every day, waking up smiling. Turn, your heart to the heavens; therein lies a gentle whisper. Even though hopeless, can become a place found; take heart, I’m already there. Even though, the days are called all alone. Even inside the silence, of an emotional river; with no room for anyone else. When the call, coming from a lonely place. My heart, the lighthouse in the dark. My love, the light shining on me. When your soul, couldn’t make a sound. Within the stillness, His love; what a heart will hear. For me, I tell you I can see; He was already there!

Daddy, are you there. Son, when you think; our hearts are a thousand miles apart. Just take a look around, you will see me everywhere; I’m everything your heart needs me to be. I’m the sunshine, the shadow you call a friend. I’m in the beat, that moves every heartstrings; in the moonlight shining all around. Look up child, I’m the whisper, that moves in the wind. In every prayer, my love is the voice that speaks; a friend to the very end. I’m with you, always and forever. When you’re sleeping, I’m there; lying right by your side. Let my love be, the kiss upon your heart… felt deep within. Let my love be the only touch, your heart can’t seem to do without. Let it be your peace, every day, and in the night. Your heart is forever held, forever in my undying love. Let me be in your dreams, the way you’ve always been part of my heart. When, your heart seems far from me. Child, I was the one, seeking to have you close. You never have to worry about today, tomorrow; I’m already there. Don’t just feel, I need you to forever know; we share such a special bond. Beloved, all your hopes; put them within my love. Before your heart, ever needs to know my love is near; I’m Already There!

I’m Already There, was released in 2001; by Lonestar, an American country music group. One of the reasons, why I do these song Inspired. Not so much, to promote the song; but share a message I hear within. A few of days ago, this song resonated. I knew it to be a wonderful song, but didn’t know why today was day for it. But, God knew. His love is truly at work, even in times such as this. Today, I was looking up the story behind the song. Only to find out that it was written for soldiers, and the loved ones left at home. In Canada July 1st, is celebrated as its Independence Day. And with today, being the U.S. forth of July weekend. This is the perfect song, to be inspired by. To point to where, true hope is found. Show that God, is forever in the midst of everything. I’ve learned, that in everything; His love is speaking; a heart just needs to be listening. We can seek independence, but Independant of His Grace; we become hearts truly lost. Whatever, wherever we need His love to be; He’s Already There… waiting! Have a wonderful weekend!

Fun Friday; As The Months Pass!

January, oh January; on the calendar, my eyes thee as first. But, in my heart; thy love will never be first, last… ing; bitter is the diss… served cold. Thy nights are cold, but at last; January, that’s… “Much Ado about Nothing.” Within this heart of mine, abides a love; that truly warms my heart. A love that fills my soul, lingers endlessly within the depth. February, the month of my mothers birth. Without that, I would never be. Every so often, there’s a leap… into an extended blessing. Every heart, getting to enjoy another day. Year after year, the days will surely end; to start another March. Onward, onward; say bye, to your Jericho. Spring forward, the time hasn’t come; to stop, and smell roses. The kiss upon two lips, your heart has entered into a new season. In the cool of the day, the veil removed. Love in a new light, love enlightening a renewed hope. Every heart being able to breathe easier, for freedom reigns. April, her heart feels a move. A change taking place, love is in the air. Flowing down, into the innermost. Showers of love, the blessings therein. Touching the surface, but flourishing what is seen; through the coming bloom!

May, oh; may I tell you about my May flower. Her heart, stunning; so beautiful. Her love, shines so bright; shimmers, to show a mother’s love. It’s the month we wed, the very moment I said; you’re my forever. Oh, how my soul; still basking in her endless glow. Oh, Father; oh, father… time has gone; thank you, for all the years. They have come, they go; the seasons change, but Your love… forevermore. I can never stop time, with every breath; may it be a heart changed, within every season… to come. June, no one could ever mistake you, for September; confusing a six, for a nine? A change in season, will fall squarely on your shoulder. Hearts leaning into you, with such high expectations. Love, for the summertime. July, being seventh; doesn’t make it independently perfect. First the creation, perfection; what precedes all that is seen. August, the eighth wonder of the year. Not the month, you see; but what became of it. A wonderful creation came to be, my wife… is she; yes, glee. Que sera, sera; “whatever will be, will be!”

September, oh; September, within you another fall. Leaves falling, the color of love dancing; grooving to the autumn breeze. The nights are crisp, but hearts are not swayed. The days are just right, how can you argue with being alive, being able to breathe it in? Earth, Wind, or Fire; September, you’re groovy. October, the season to lean back, maybe even act a bit cool. Feeling the nostalgic vibe, the chill revisited remix. Oh, please don’t fall back; into the same old humdrum. A fish in a barrel, the love for life like water; to soothe every fear. October, yes; a time to give back, the season for true thanksgiving. November, Movember; a time for men to remember. Even the strongest man, can struggle with issues. It’s not a time to hide, but a time for growth; a moment to raise awareness. Hope found, is the fundamental reason. Why faith is the key, to help get a heart through… the tough times. December, as the months pass by; know that one thing will forever remain the same. The world would never truly understand, what is a holistic perspective; without there being a Holy birth. Emanuel, the bright morning star. The light glistening in the night, shining; to display the greatness, of the love within!

The Script; Book, Chapter, and Verse!

In written text, but sometimes miss placed the context. Agree to disagree, will never change the simple truth. Live, Move; Have our being, only possible through the breadth of God’s love. What we feel, is irrelevant to what’s in words. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-5. What we face today, cannot be simplified; as just right or wrong. A heart would never truly understand; WWJD (what would Jesus Do), until you know what God said! Put My love first, and let it be last. I AM, Alpha, Omega. It’s the deFined line, between love and hate. In every situation, we’re told to do one thing. Examine our own heart, and let God be the judge… of what role His love truly played; in the midst of what you believe is truth. The truth of God’s love, should never be trivialized; as just good verses evil. Should never be dismissed, as irrelevant words… for times such as these. Every Book, Chapter, Verse; will forever play a part, in every context. “In the beginning God, created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1.

When it’s all said and done, it truly comes down to a choice. Choosing to Love, when hate… what you see everyday; becomes a heart influenced, by a tainted context. Be disturbed, be stirred; but don’t let your faith be shaken, to who’s in control. So often, we’re tempted to put it into categories; but, I… feel. The context, that should always be applied; the I AM? “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 AMP. That’s why, the passion, the truth; should always be governed by the text. Kingdoms rise, kingdoms fall; but His words are unshaken, it’s the ONLY firm foundation. You don’t have to be a theologian to truly understand. We have, We do, We still; have to apply, what’s in the text. Knee deep, doesn’t mean a place you haven’t been. The question is, what are you knee deep in? Is it in Love, or a version without the grace? God, the word that can truly provide the context; so a heart can truly see, love through the right perspective!

Song Inspired; Love Train!

Conductor, take over. Lead us, back to Your heart. Your love, not just the spark; it fire, set our hearts ablaze. Let Your kind of love burn deep, within our soul. So deep, that we can’t Even tell. Where Your love ends, but our heart truly begins… to breathe? Direct our hearts, let love not be just a performance. But a heart transmitting so much love, that it sounds angelic. The rhythm, the beauty; it’s within the tone. A heart conducting itself through compassion, showcasing that deep down; it’s a love symphony. But, before there’s an arrival; there first has to be a departure, from what ties to hold the heart back. So, we train our heart; and monitor the condition of our soul. How can a heart know the true destination, without making an intentional choice? Love, always has some baggage to carry. Bring it, but check it at the door. Unchecked emotions, will always get in the way. An Open Mind, where always love starts. Having an open heart, how you experience; a love connection!

When passion becomes the moment, let your heart take part with a love that fills. May your soul, truly be stimulated; with every food for thought. Don’t be tempted, to partake in a one sided menu. Broaden your horizon, if you truly want to see what; true love has to offer? Why, you have to look through a different view. A change of heart, only begins with a change of perspective. Stepping into love train, will never be… a stationary decision. You have to truly give, to get a return. A heart truly moved, by a love echoed… in return. The first stop, will be the Olive branch, then Real Love, and then on to Respect. Love, will never get you to a place called Peace; until you first find a place named Hope. It’s a journey, a winding road; called life. It’s not about where you start, but where you end up? Love, is not about a heart getting to a place known as Utopia; but a soul being in a place, called Freedom. A heart not restricted to the day, but knowing how to see… beyond the moment. Love is not to make light of the situation, but enlighten how far the distance, love still needs to travel; to get from Head, to Heart!

When you can see the world, through a different kind of lens. Your heart will know, we’re brothers and sisters. So, don’t miss the train. It’s time, for every heart to get on board. Where the love train will take your heart; you don’t need money. Love is the ticket, that will change your perspective. Love is an oldie, but a goody; that leaves an impression. If you don’t want to take my word, get on board. You will see that Love is electric, when hearts can sing in unison. Souls singing the same song, in true harmony. One sound, the sound of togetherness. The soulful sound, a resounding love; we are humanity. May our hearts, not let love be just a word; but a lifestyle. At the end of the journey, will you have; A Love Story? People all over the world, everybody; join hands, Start a Love Train!

• Love Train, a song by The O’Jays; that was released in 1972.

Even!

Even when, love doesn’t seem like it’s evenly matched; it still needs to be, evenly distributed. The number doesn’t have to be even, to be perfect. A split right down the middle, can still mean a heart… completely broken. Even-keel, defines stability. But if you don’t know, what truly makes your heart centered? How can your soul, truly be grounded? Even though, we try so hard to adjust our thoughts; we can still see through a tainted view. Why, love needs to be the lens that enlightens; true clarity for our hearts. Sometimes I feel, my heart is just too heavenly minded? Being, earthly; not doing my heart so good. God, Your love comes first. But I see, how so many think of it last. Set apart, so I stand aloof. Watch the reign, my heart cries. So many think, true love is feelings. But, it’s in the knowing; what love truly means. Not in the seeing, but understanding… the creation!

Lord, WE need change, let Your love illuminate the truth; change first starts within. Why should a heart cast stones, when the ripples will affect so much? Even, not even Steven. God’s love forever reigns, Even; when the hurt seems like, a glimpse into hell. His love, is still Heaven. Even when, we can’t find the words? His love is speaking, to let us know; where true hope is found. But, our hearts have to be truly listening. We don’t need to chase after things, just relentlessly pursue His heart; to find All we need. Lord, whenever what we see, is enough to shipwreck our faith? Drown us deeper, within Your grace. Until the true depth of Your love, is revealed. Your love is the only anchor, for a capsized soul. Even when, waves of emotion are an endless rain. Your love is the ocean, for every bottled up tear. Your love is water, the air; in every breath. Even when, strength to find hope seems lost. Courage, can show a heart; even then, hope is never lost!

Even when, time on earth is done. Forever, will still revolve around Your love. Still in control, Your love is the only consistency. Why, we should let Your love be; what truly moves our every breath. Even though, a heart lives a well-balanced life. Three square, but trying to settle the score. Still leaves a soul, with some food for thought. When my heart is broken, it’s just because I know… what breaks Yours. When, we feel we just can’t find peace; You’ve shown us how to find You. At the end of the day, the only thing that truly matters; get self out of the equation. Then every heart, would truly know Your love. Our every breath, need to forever sing Your praise. When it makes no sense, our heart needs to do a double check. To see if what we believe to be love, is at odds with Your heart. We need You, but we need to want You. The hope that moves, the love that rescues. Even when, Your love is. Even if, Your love will. Even in, Your love hovers. Even now, Your love is moving. Even after, Your heart will never change!

In A Word!

Courage, fuel for your confidence. What strengthens your heart, to fight through what tries to hold you back. Courage to battle the nerves, that say you’re just not strong enough. Faith, what gives a heart the ability; to find Strength, face what challenges your Hope. You don’t have to be fearless, just brave enough. When fear is the battle, your heart needs to face!

Strength, a state of being, a quality worth possessing. Strength influences your Courage, to take the needed action. True Strength, not about being physically strong. Fear doesn’t respect brawn, just the power wields… by true Courage. It gives the Faith you possess, the Strength your Hope needs; to never give up. It’s not about acting tough, that just might… be an obstacle. If Strength of character, doesn’t restrain the power; that transforms, how true Strength is used!

Hope, not just what you feel, but also in the expectancy; that your circumstance will change. Hope to see a change, but know where to place your confidence? You can desire something, but you still have to believe; that it will be possible. Hope found, what you heart should forever hold onto. Hopefulness optimism, means you truly have to trust; in what your Faith, is willing to Hope for!

Peace, not just a heart knowing calm; but a soul knowing the Faith, that produces Peace within your soul… day after day. Peaceful, and tranquil moments are a true blessing. But may the desire forever be, finding true Peace when; the moment seems so surreal!

Peace and Hope, takes Faith to find. The Courage to never let go, of the Strength it truly gives. What, is In A Word? What it truly means to you, and letting your Faith; tether them all together!

Thirsty!

Thirsty, so many souls that don’t even realize… they’re thirsty. Souls so parched, but can’t see it within their heart. How to take shelter, within the risen Son. For a heart, to absorb all of life’s true blessings. Your love needs to be the true water, that soaks up every inch of our soul. If not, dreams turn into dried up hopes. It’s not about unrest, but what’s underneath the surface; a thirsting, to truly have more of You. Only if, our souls could thirst for You, and You alone. We would truly know, love is a thirsting; but You are the source, for true fulfillment. Your love is the only thing, that can get water; to come out of a heart of stone. Only if a heart could truly soak that all in, forever soak it up? A soul would truly be live, deep beneath the fulfilling love. It’s not about surrendering to a moment, but living fulfilled; within a surrendered heart!

Why should it take having no hope, to realize we truly need You? I don’t have to pray, for You to take control; You are… in control. We just need to see, You are our living hope. In this dry, thirsty land; Your love is the water. The overflow, found deep within Your will. Living water, found forever flowing; with overflowing hope. Show our hearts, how to be truly thirsty; but only for You, Lord. Show us how to walk a mile, not in just any shoes; but follow the footprint, left in the sands of time. We don’t have to draw on another blueprint, it’s still a faith walk. We can try to gain the world, seek after having a kingdom; but, You will still be Lord. Next to You, we would have gained nothing… that will last. Oh Lord, oh Lord; our needs to thirst, just for You. There’s absolutely nothing, that our hearts should want more; than to know You. Thirsty, why can’t every heart truly see; the thirst is for You? How can a heart think it can breathe on its own, when Your love is the breath? A thirsty soul will never be quenched, without first knowing; where to find the fountain!

Father, may every vain imagination loss its luster. May every heart imagine what the world would be like; if the fabric of Your love, weren’t the true tapestry?Quench the thirst for power, if Your love is not the source. True understanding, is in the sweet taste of the surrender. I can only imagine, if every heart truly wanted to live, and breathe for You. Water, would surely flow out of my soul. Just to see Your love, being embrace by a world; needing to know, how deep is Your heart. So many have a thirst, the want to feel loved; but don’t see the need to have a thirsting, that will draw us closer to Your heart. So many believe, they’re in the know; but yet don’t know, there’s no hope without You. All, or nothing; what makes most hearts miss, what was in the true sacrifice. Every drip, is life saving. It’s in the thirsting, that truly makes it soul changing. Father, when the thirst takes hold; let the burning desire be, quenched by nothing else. Than the pure water, found within Your refreshing love. Hold nothing back, from the heart of a true seeker. Pour out Your love, for therein lies the absolute truth. Thirsty is the place, where Your heart will forever be found!
